(abridged) Type II and anomalous Cepheids (ACs) are useful distance indicators when there are too few classical Cepheids or when RR Lyrae stars are too faint. We study the sample of 335 Type II and ACs in the Small and Large MCls detected in OGLE-III data.The SEDs are constructed and fitted with a dust radiative transfer model, thereby leading to a determination of luminosity and effective this http URL addition, a subsample of targets is investigated for possible binarity by looking for the… 
The period-luminosity and period-radius relations of Type II and anomalous Cepheids in the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds
Method: In an accompanying paper (arXiv: 1705.00886) we determined luminosity and effective temperature for the 335 T2Cs and ACs in the LMC and SMC discovered in the OGLE-III survey, by constructing
Evolutionary and pulsation properties of Type II Cepheids
We discuss the observed pulsation properties of Type II Cepheids (TIICs) in the Galaxy and in the Magellanic Clouds. We found that period (P) distributions, luminosity amplitudes, and population
Analysing the spectral energy distributions of Galactic classical Cepheids
Spectral energy distributions (SEDs) were constructed for a sample of 477 classical Cepheids (CCs); including stars that have been classified in the literature as such but are probably not. The SEDs
An Absolute Calibration of the Near-infrared Period–Luminosity Relations of Type II Cepheids in the Milky Way and in the Large Magellanic Cloud
We present time-series photometry of 21 nearby type II Cepheids in the near-infrared J, H, and K s passbands. We use this photometry, together with the Third Gaia Early Data Release parallaxes, to
RR Lyrae and Type II Cepheid Variables in Globular Clusters: Optical and Infrared Properties
Globular clusters are both primary fossils of galactic evolution and formation and are ideal laboratories for constraining the evolution of low-mass and metal-poor stars. RR Lyrae and type II Cepheid
Old-Aged Stellar Population Distance Indicators
Old-aged stellar distance indicators are present in all Galactic structures (halo, bulge, disk) and in galaxies of all Hubble types and, thus, are immensely powerful tools for understanding our
Old-Aged Primary Distance Indicators
TLDR
A comprehensive review for three primary standard candles from Population II: (i) RR Lyrae type variables (RRL), (ii) type II Cepheid variables (T2C), and (iii) the tip of the red giant branch (TRGB) is presented.
The evolutionary nature of RV Tauri stars in the SMC and LMC
Context. Based on their stellar parameters and the presence of a mid-IR excess due to circumstellar dust, RV Tauri stars have been classified as post-AGB stars. Our recent studies, however, reveal
TESS Observations of Cepheid Stars: First Light Results
We present the first analysis of Cepheid stars observed by the TESS space mission in Sectors 1–5. Our sample consists of 25 pulsators: ten fundamental mode, three overtone and two double-mode
OGLE-GAL-ACEP-091: The First Known Multi-mode Anomalous Cepheid
Anomalous Cepheids (ACs) are metal-deficient, core-helium-burning pulsating stars with masses in the range 1.2–2.2 . Until recently, all known ACs were pure single-mode pulsators. The first candidate
