Résumé

The sun's temperature decreases gradually from the core to the photosphere. Then, paradoxically, it increases considerably in the corona around the sun. This anomaly is investigated by astrophysics researchers with the help of a wide array of instruments, including the satellite SOHO, the solar telescope Themis, and the radioheliographs and decametric antennas in Nançay.
