New theoretical evaluations of the red giant branch tip (TRGB) luminosity, obtained by adopting the most recent physical inputs in the computing of canonical stellar models, are presented. Theoretical relations for the variation of the TRGB bolometric and I magnitude with the metallicity are provided, together with a comparison of the distance scale based on these relations the RR Lyrae distance scale presented in Cassisi & Salaris, and the Cepheid distance scale adopted by Lee, Freedman… Expand
