Active galactic nuclei (AGNs) exhibit variability across the entire electromagnetic spectrum with distinct flaring episodes at different frequencies. The high sensitivity and nearly uniform sky coverage of the Large Area Telescope on board the Fermi satellite make it a powerful tool for monitoring a large number of AGNs over long timescales. This allowed us to detect several flaring AGNs in gamma rays, triggering dedicated multifrequency campaigns on these sources from radio to TeV energies. We… Expand
