Abstract

The rather frequent occurrence, and sometimes long duration, of -


ray events at photon energies above 100 MeV challenges our understanding of


particle acceleration processes at the Sun. The emission is ascribed to pion-decay


photons due to protons with energies above 300 MeV.We study the X-ray and radio


emissions and the solar energetic particles (SEPs) in space for a set of 25 Fermi


-ray events. They are accompanied by strong SEP events, including, in most cases


where the parent activity is well-connected, protons above 300 MeV. Signatures of


energetic electron acceleration in the corona accompany the impulsive and early


post-impulsive -ray emission. -ray emission lasting several hours accompanies


in general the decay phase of long-lasting soft X-ray bursts and decametric-tokilometric


type II bursts. We discuss the impact of these results on the origin of


the -ray events.
