AbstractThe status of the solar-stellar connections that can be made through polarimetry is presented by giving brief reviews of the work in the stellar field and of mechanisms that produce polarization in local areas on the Sun. Results are described from novel measurements of the whole solar disk made at the Glasgow Observatory Solar Polarimetric Experimental Laboratory (GOSPEL), these suggesting that the Sun can be considered as being a polarimetric variable star.
