Monitoring of X-Ray Sources in the Optical Spectral Region

Figure 5

The light curve of the polar AM Her in the optical (a) (AFOEV data) and X-ray band (b) (ASM/RXTE data). The ratio of the X-ray to the optical intensity is shown in (c). Only HEC13 fits are shown. The dashed vertical lines denote the crossing of the level of 14.3 . Solid horizontal lines denote the average intensity of the given high state. See Section 2.6 for details.
