Bump Cepheids in the Magellanic Clouds: Metallicities, the Distances to the LMC and SMC, and the Pulsation-evolution Mass Discrepancy

Keller, Stefan; Wood, Peter R


We use nonlinear pulsation models to reproduce the observed light and color curves for two samples of bump Cepheid variables, 19 from the Large Magellanic Cloud and 9 from the Small Magellanic Cloud. This analysis determines the fundamental parameters mass, luminosity, effective temperature, metallicity, distance, and reddening for the sample of stars. The use of the light-curve shape alone to determine metallicity is a new modeling technique introduced here. The metallicity, distance, and...[Show more]
