Acceleration of Energetic Particles in Solar Flares
A review is given of the basic properties of solar flare accelerated particles and of the solar flare associated electromagnetic emission in the X- and γ-ray region. The most widely discussed acceleration processes are acceleration by shocks, by turbulence, and by direct electric fields. Currently there is no consensus which of these processes is most ubiquitous and therefore dominant.
