Abstract

We present results of an analysis of broadband spectra of 14 intermediate polars obtained with the RXTE observatory (PCA and HEXTE spectrometers, 3-100 keV). By means of our calculations of the structure and the emergent spectrum of the post-shock region of intermediate polars we fitted the observed spectra and obtained estimates of the white dwarf masses. The estimated masses are compared with masses obtained by other authors.
