# Classical Cepheid Pulsation Models. III. The Predictable Scenario

@article{Bono2000ClassicalCP, title={Classical Cepheid Pulsation Models. III. The Predictable Scenario}, author={Giuseppe Bono and Vittorio Castellani and Marcella Marconi}, journal={The Astrophysical Journal}, year={2000}, volume={529}, pages={293-317} }

Within the current uncertainties in the treatment of the coupling between pulsation and convection, the limiting amplitude, nonlinear, convective models appear the only viable approach for providing theoretical predictions about the intrinsic properties of radial pulsators. In this paper we present the results of a comprehensive set of Cepheid models computed within such theoretical framework for selected assumptions on their original chemical composition. We first discuss the location of the… Expand
