We present the results of a search for pulsating stars in the 7.12 deg^2 OGLE-III Galactic disk area in the direction tangent to the Centaurus Arm. We report the identification of 20 Classical Cepheids, 45 RR Lyr type stars, 31 Long-Period Variables, such as Miras and Semi-Regular Variables, one pulsating white dwarf, and 58 very likely delta Sct type stars. Based on asteroseismic models constructed for one quadruple-mode and six triple-mode delta Sct type pulsators, we estimated masses… 
On the Properties of Blue Large-Amplitude Pulsators. No BLAPs in the Magellanic Clouds
We present the properties of the recently discovered class of variable stars, Blue Large-Amplitude Pulsators (BLAPs). These extremely rare, short-period pulsating objects were detected thanks to
A three-dimensional map of the Milky Way using classical Cepheid variable stars
A map of the Milky Way in three dimensions, based on the positions and distances of thousands of classical Cepheid variable stars, shows the structure of the Galaxy’s young stellar population and allows us to constrain the warped shape of the galactic disc.
Blue large-amplitude pulsators as a new class of variable stars
A previously unidentified class of variable stars has been found in OGLE survey data, characterized by periodic brightness variations on ~30-min timescales, amplitudes of ~0.3 mag and temperatures of
V2551 Cyg: a pulsating star with enigmatic peculiarities
Intensive photometric and spectral observations of the variable star V2551 Cyg are presented. The light curve shape reveals that the target is a pulsating star, contrary to its previous
