This book provides results of analysis of typical solar events, statistical analysis, the diagnostics of energetic electrons and magnetic field, as well as the global behavior of solar flaring loops such as their contraction and expansion. It pays particular attention to analyzing solar flare loops with microwave, hard X-ray, optical and EUV emissions, as well as the theories of their radiation, and electron acceleration/transport. The results concerning influence of the pitch-angle anisotropy of non-thermal electrons on their microwave and hard X-ray emissions, new spectral behaviors in X-ray and microwave bands, and results related to the contraction of flaring loops, are widely discussed in the literature of solar physics. The book is useful for graduate students and researchers in solar and space physics.

Guangli Huang got his PhD in purple Mountain Observatory (PMO). He has been working on solar radio and plasma astrophysics since 1985. He was the leading scientist of research group of solar activities in PMO during 1999-2010, the pre-doctorial fellowship of Smithsonian Institute of USA, the post-doctor of K.C. Wang and CNRS in France,...
