Abstract : The purpose of this study is to investigate the characteristics of short-duration microwave flares and their association with soft (2--12 A) x-ray emission, and to discuss conclusions concerning the solar flare process which may be inferred from the observations. Some of the experimental areas to be investigated or commented upon are as follows: correlation between microwave and soft x-ray events, possibility of classes of short-duration microwave bursts, investigation of time morphologies of correlated x-ray and radio bursts, and intensity and energy relationships in associated radio and x-ray events.
