The nature and kinematics of long-period variables in the Large Magellanic Cloud
A search for long-period variables (LPVs) has been made in the bar and southern regions of the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) using a series of 7-band UKST plates, resulting in the discovery of 471 Mira variables and 572 SRa variables. By using mainly automated methods of determining periods and amplitudes of variability, corrections for incompleteness have been estimated. The Miras show a trend towards larger amplitudes and brighter luminosities with period, both of which should contribute...[Show more]
