We provide a summary of results, obtained from a multiwavelength (TeV gamma-ray, X-ray, UV, optical, and radio) campaign of observations of AE Aqr conducted in 2005 August 28-September 2, on the nature and correlation of the flux variations in the various wavebands, the white dwarf spin evolution, the properties of the X-ray emission region, and the very low upper limits on the TeV gamma-ray flux.

Search for gamma-ray emission from AE Aquarii with seven years of FERMI-LAT observations
AE Aquarii (AE Aqr) is a cataclysmic binary hosting one of the fastest rotating (P$_{\rm spin}$ = 33.08 s) white dwarfs known. Based on seven years of Fermi Large Area Telescope (LAT) Pass 8 data, weExpand
Transient Sources in Astrophysics: From Radio to Gamma-Rays
The enhanced sensitivity of a new generation of telescopes, from radio (meerKAT-SKA) to VHE Gamma-Rays (CTA), may provide the required sensitivity to detect and study very faint accretion drivenExpand
NuStar and Swift Observations of the Fast Rotating Magnetized White Dwarf AE Aquarii
AE Aquarii is a cataclysmic variable with the fastest known rotating magnetized white dwarf (P_(spin) = 33.08 s). Compared to many intermediate polars, AE Aquarii shows a soft X-ray spectrum with aExpand
Simultaneous UBVRI observations of the cataclysmic variable AE Aquarii: temperature and mass of fireballs
We report simultaneous multicolour observations in 5 bands (UBVRI) of the flickering variability of the cataclysmic variable AE Aqr. Our aim is to estimate the parameters (colours, temperature, size)Expand


isn’t it still larger than the size of the white dwarf? Also, the maximum plasma temperature is too low for accretion onto the white dwarf
