The strategy of modern effective field theory is exploited to pin down
accurately the flux factors for the and processes in the Sun.
The technique used is to combine the high accuracy established in few-nucleon
systems of the "standard nuclear physics approach" (SNPA) and the systematic
power counting of chiral perturbation theory (ChPT) into a consistent effective
field theory framework. Using highly accurate wave functions obtained in the
SNPA and working to \nlo3 in the chiral counting for the current, we make
totally parameter-free and error-controlled predictions for the and
processes in the Sun.
