We present high-precision and well sampled BVRIJK light curves and radial velocity curves for a sample of five Cepheids in the SMC. In addition we present radial velocity curves for three Cepheids in the LMC. The low-metallicity ([Fe/H] ~ -0.7) SMC stars have been selected for use in a Baade-Wesselink type analysis to constrain the metallicity effect on the Cepheid Period-Luminosity relation. The stars have periods of around 15 days so they are similar to the Cepheids observed by the… 
Theoretical fit of Cepheid light an radial velocity curves in the Large Magellanic Cloud cluster NGC 1866.
We present a theoretical investigation of multifilter (U,B,V, I and K) light and radial velocity curves of five Classical Cepheids in NGC 1866, a young massive cluster of the Large Magellanic Cloud.
Baade-Wesselink distances to Galactic and Magellanic Cloud Cepheids and the effect of metallicity
Context. The metallicity dependence of the Cepheid period–luminosity (PL) relation is of importance in establishing the extragalactic distance scale. Aims. The aim of this paper is to investigate the
The effect of metallicity on Cepheid period-luminosity relations from a Baade-Wesselink analysis of Cepheids in the Milky Way and Magellanic Clouds
Context. The extragalactic distance scale builds on the Cepheid period-luminosity (PL) relation. Decades of work have not yet convincingly established the sensitivity of the PL relation to

THE CARNEGIE HUBBLE PROGRAM: THE DISTANCE AND STRUCTURE OF THE SMC AS REVEALED BY MID-INFRARED OBSERVATIONS OF CEPHEIDS
Using Spitzer observations of classical Cepheids we have measured the true average distance modulus of the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC) to be 18.96 ± 0.01 stat ± 0.03 sys ?> mag (corresponding to 62
Detailed chemical composition of classical Cepheids in the LMC cluster NGC 1866 and in the field of the SMC
Context: Cepheids are excellent tracers of young stellar populations. They play a crucial role in astrophysics as standard candles. The chemistry of classical Cepheids in the Milky Way is now quite
CORS BAADE–WESSELINK DISTANCE TO THE LMC NGC 1866 BLUE POPULOUS CLUSTER
We used optical, near-infrared photometry, and radial velocity data for a sample of 11 Cepheids belonging to the young LMC blue populous cluster NGC 1866 to estimate their radii and distances on the
Binarity among Cepheids in the Magellanic Clouds
The spectroscopic binarity of the Cepheid variable HV914 in the Large Magellanic Cloud is identified from published radial velocity observational data. The list of known binaries among Cepheid-type
