Present theories suggest two different classes of excitation mechanisms which may be responsible for the observed amplitudes of solar p-mode oscillations—self-excitation of the modes (e.g. the κ mechanism), and stochastic excitation by turbulent convection. I discuss here the agreement and disagreement between the predictions of these two mechanisms and the observed mode amplitudes and linewidths.
