Abstract

In this work, we present the analysis results using UMRAO preliminary data base. We used the light curves 1) to get the shortest timescales and then to get the brightness temperature so that we can estimate the Doppler factors; 2) to investigate the periodicity and discuss the variability index. We also used the data base to discuss the polarization properties of blazars. We found that the periodicity distribution in BL Lacs and that in the flat spectrum radio quasars should be from the same distribution. The Doppler factor in FSRQs is higher than that in BL. The polarization in BLs are higher than that in the flat spectrum radio quasars
