An eclipsing-binary distance to the Large Magellanic Cloud accurate to two per cent
TLDR
Determinations of the distances to eight long-period, late-type eclipsing systems in the Large Magellanic Cloud, composed of cool, giant stars, provide a firm base for a 3-per-cent determination of the Hubble constant.
Magellanic Cloud Cepheids: Abundances
We have determined parameters and abundances for three SMC and nine LMC Cepheids that have not been previously studied spectroscopically for metallicity, as well as three SMC and one LMC Cepheids
A distance to the Large Magellanic Cloud that is precise to one per cent
TLDR
A new calibration of the surface brightness–colour relation of eclipsing binary stars gives a distance to the Large Magellanic Cloud that is precise to one per cent.
A New Calibration Of Galactic Cepheid Period-Luminosity Relations From B To K Bands, And A Comparison To LMC Relations
Context. The universality of the Cepheid Period-Luminosity relations has been under discussion since metallicity effects have been assumed to play a role in the value of the intercept and, more
EXTRAGALACTIC CHEMICAL ABUNDANCES: DO H II REGIONS AND YOUNG STARS TELL THE SAME STORY? THE CASE OF THE SPIRAL GALAXY NGC 300*
We have obtained new spectrophotometric data for 28 H II regions in the spiral galaxy NGC 300, a member of the nearby Sculptor Group. The detection of several auroral lines, including [O III] λ4363,

The effect of metallicity on the Cepheid Period-Luminosity relation from a Baade-Wesselink analysis of Cepheids in the Galaxy and in the Small Magellanic Cloud
We have applied the near-IR Barnes-Evans realization of the Baade-Wesselink method as calibrated by Fouque& Gieren (1997) to five metal-poor Cepheids with periods between 13 and 17 days in the Small
The Globular Cluster System of NGC 1399. I. A Wide-Field Photometric Study
We present a photometric investigation of the globular cluster population of NGC 1399, the central galaxy in the Fornax cluster, in Washington C and Kron R filters within a field of 36' × 36',
Cepheid Period-Radius and Period-Luminosity Relations and the Distance to the Large Magellanic Cloud
We have used the infrared Barnes-Evans surface brightness technique to derive the radii and distances of 34 Galactic Cepheid variables. Radius and distance results obtained from both versions of the
