The vector Burgers equation is extended to include pressure gradients and gravity. It is shown that within the framework of the ColeHopf transformation there are no physical solutions to this problem. This result is important because it clearly demonstrates that any extension of Burgers equation to more interesting physical situations is strongly limited.
We investigate accelerated electron energy spectra for different sources in a large flare using simultaneous observations obtained with two instruments, the Nobeyama Radio Heliograph (NoRH) at 17 and 34 GHz, and the Reuven Ramaty High Energy Solar Spectroscopic Imager (RHESSI) at hard X-rays. This flare is one of the few in which emission up to energies(More)
We developed a method for making quantitative characterizations of bi-grid rotating modulation collimators (RMC's) that are used in a Fourier transform x-ray imager. With appropriate choices of the collimator spacings, this technique can be implemented with a beam-expanded He-Ne laser to simulate the plane wave produced by a point source at infinity even(More)
Aims. We present a summary of the analysis of thirty microflares, observed simultaneously by the Ramaty High Energy Solar Spectroscopic Imager (RHESSI) in hard X-rays and by Nobeyama RadioHeliograph (NoRH) in microwaves (17 GHz). Methods. We used microflares observed by RHESSI in the energy range 3−25 keV, and for larger events, up to 35 keV. The(More)
