ABSTRACT
Numerical simulations are presented of the acceleration
of charged particles in a single or multiple Harris-type
Reconnecting Current Sheet (RCS). We start with ther-
mal (Maxwellian) initial particle distributions at
K. The main goal is to understand how acceleration
in a reconnection site affects the final form of the energy
and pitch angle distributions, as well as the X-Ray spec-
tra produced on the assumption of a thick target model.
