High-Energy Aspects of Solar Flares

Editors: Emslie, A.G., Dennis, B.R., Lin, R.P., Hudson, H. (Eds.)

  • Uniquely offers a broad view of the most important physics of solar/stellar flare physics
  • Captures the newest observations of all types, and the most diverse interpretative work through the work of 4 editors and 54 authors
  • Coincides with sunspot minimum and could therefore capture the remarkable solar activity of Hale Cycle 23, including the most powerful solar flare to have occurred in the modern era

About this book

This edited volume describes many 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 various forms of radiation, and the inference of physical processes from observations. Other chapters deal with the full breadth and richness 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.
