An analytical derivation is presented for computing mass-loss rates of Cepheids by using the method of Castor, Abbott, and Klein modified to include a term for momentum input from pulsation and shocks generated in the atmosphere. Using this derivation, mass-loss rates of Cepheids are determined as a function of stellar parameters. When applied to a set of known Cepheids, the calculated mass-loss rates range from 10−10 to 10−7 -->M☉ yr−1, larger than if the winds were driven by radiation alone… 
The Cepheid mass discrepancy and pulsation-driven mass loss
Context. A longstanding challenge for understanding classical Cepheids is the Cepheid mass discrepancy, where theoretical mass estimates using stellar evolution and stellar pulsation calculations
Testing Mass Loss in Large Magellanic Cloud Cepheids Using Infrared and Optical Observations
It has been claimed that period-luminosity (P-L) relations derived from infrared observations of Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) Cepheids are less dependent on the metallicity of the Cepheids. In this
CLASSICAL CEPHEIDS REQUIRE ENHANCED MASS LOSS
Measurements of rates of period change of Classical Cepheids probe stellar physics and evolution. Additionally, better understanding of Cepheid structure and evolution provides greater insight into
A Search for Mass Loss on the Cepheid Instability Strip using HI 21-cm Line Observations
We present the results of a search for HI 21-cm line emission from the circumstellar environments of four Galactic Cepheids (RS Pup, X Cyg, $\zeta$ Gem, and T Mon) based on observations with the Karl
THE PERIOD CHANGE OF THE CEPHEID POLARIS SUGGESTS ENHANCED MASS LOSS
Polaris is one of the most observed stars in the night sky, with recorded observations spanning more than 200 years. From these observations, one can study the real-time evolution of Polaris via the
THE SECRET LIVES OF CEPHEIDS: EVOLUTION, MASS-LOSS, AND ULTRAVIOLET EMISSION OF THE LONG-PERIOD CLASSICAL CEPHEID*
The classical Cepheid l Carinae is an essential calibrator of the Cepheid Leavitt Law as a rare long-period Galactic Cepheid. Understanding the properties of this star will also constrain the physics

In this paper, we test the hypothesis that Cepheids have infrared excesses due to mass loss. We fit a model using the mass-loss rate and the stellar radius as free parameters to optical observations
Is there a mass discrepancy in the Cepheid binary OGLE-LMC-CEP0227?
Context. The Cepheid mass discrepancy, the difference between masses predicted from stellar evolution and stellar pulsation calculations, is a challenge for the understanding of stellar astrophysics.

Context. Classical Cepheids are among the most important variable star types due to their nature as standard candles and have a long history of modeling in terms of stellar evolution. The effects of
