Abstract

We have studied the variability of S5 0716+714 at radio 15 GHz and \(\gamma\)-ray band using three different methods. A possible periodicity of \(P_{15~\text{GHz}}=266.0\pm11.5\) and \(P_{\gamma}=344.0 \pm16.4\) days are obtained for radio 15 GHz and \(\gamma\)-ray light curves, respectively. The variability may be related to the intrinsically emission mechanism. The difference between the variability timescales of radio 15 GHz and \(\gamma \)-ray may be due to that the emission of radio 15 GHz is produced via the synchrotron process, while the \(\gamma\)-ray is produced by both the SSC and EC processes.
