As the only eclipsing asynchronous polar (AP), V1432 Aql provides an excellent laboratory to study the interaction between the accreted matter and the magnetic field. However, due to its complex emission, a more physical understanding of its accretion geometry is still outstanding. Here, we report an X-ray spectral study using contemporaneous observations from \nustar\ and \swift. We detect significant Compton reflection and confirm earlier reports of a high soft X-ray temperature $\sim52$ keV…

Tomography of Polars
Tomographic techniques of different flavour offer enormous diagnostic power for the analysis of magnetic cataclysmic binaries, particularly those of AM Herculis type, the so-called polars. The three…
