Fig. 3.


Evolution of spectral parameters for the power-law model. Top panel: time evolution of the X-ray luminosity (0.5−10 keV energy range). Bottom panel: evolution of the photon index (values fixed during the spectral fits are not displayed; see Sect. 2.2.1). The zero-points are the same as those used in Fig. 2, although the observations of the 2015/2016 campaign are shifted by a few days in order to line up the times of the periastron passages during this campaign with respect to the 2017/2018 campaign. The colours and symbols are the same as those used in Fig. 2. Observations obtained in the periastron-passage regime are plotted with down-pointing triangles (light blue; in the case of 2015/2016 data) and crosses (red; for 2017/2018 observations). Extra observations during the decay of the giant outbursts are shown at negative days. Errors are 1σ and may be smaller than the symbols used in the plot. Dotted vertical lines in the plots indicate the times of the periastron passages. The horizontal dotted lines indicate the representative values measured during the 2007 quiescent XMM-Newton observation.
