Canuto, V.M., and S.-H. Hsieh, 1980: Cosmological variation of G and the solar luminosity. Astrophys. J., 237, 613-615, doi:10.1086/157905.

We reexamine Teller's analysis of the effects of a varying gravitational constant G on the past solar luminosity. We show that if Newtonian gravitation is viewed as a nonrelativistic linit of Einstein's theory, there exists (1) a constraint between G and the total mass M of the Sun and (2) a change in the radiative energy density-temperature relation, which were not cinluded in Teller's analysis and which change his result from L ∼ G7 (found to be unacceptable) to L ∼ constant independently of how G might vary with time.
