Abstract
The RS CVn-type binary  Geminorum was observed
during a large, long-duration are simultaneously with
XMM-Newton and the VLA. The light curves show a char-
acteristic time dependence that is compatible with the Ne-
upert e ect observed in solar ares - the time derivative of
the X-ray light curve resembles the radio light curve. This
observation can be interpreted in terms of a standard are
scenario in which accelerated coronal electrons reach the
chromosphere where they heat the cool plasma and induce
chromospheric evaporation. Such a scenario can only hold
if the amount of energy in the fast electrons is suÆcient to
