This edited volume describes all aspects of current research on solar flares, emphasizing recent progress in understanding their X-ray and gamma-ray emissions. Several of the chapters deal comprehensively with the problems of particle acceleration, ...
conversion of particle energy into radiation, and the inference of physical processes on the basis of the information thus obtained. Other chapters deal with the full breadth of flare observations, including microflares and nanoflares. This volume is aimed at graduate students and researchers in solar physics and space science. Previously published in Space Science Reviews journal, Vol. 159/1-4, 2011.
