We present the results of the light curve model fitting technique applied to optical and near-infrared photometric data for a sample of 18 Classical Cepheids (11 fundamentals and 7 first overtones) in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC). We use optical photometry from the OGLE III data base and near-infrared photometry obtained by the European Southern Observatory public survey ‘VISTA near-infrared survey of the Magellanic Clouds system’. Iso-periodic non-linear convective model sequences have… 

The VMC survey – XXXVI. Young stellar variability in the Large Magellanic Cloud

Studies of young stellar objects (YSOs) in the Galaxy have found that a significant fraction exhibit photometric variability. However, no systematic investigation has been conducted on the

An Extended Theoretical Scenario for Classical Cepheids. I. Modeling Galactic Cepheids in the Gaia Photometric System

We present a new extended and detailed set of models for classical Cepheid pulsators at solar chemical composition (Z = 0.02, Y = 0.28) based on a well-tested nonlinear hydrodynamical approach. In

New insights into the use of Ultra Long Period Cepheids as cosmological standard candles

Ultra Long Period Cepheids (ULPs) are pulsating variable stars with a period longer than 80d and have been hypothesized to be the extension of the Classical Cepheids (CCs) at higher masses and

Predicted Masses of Galactic Cepheids in the Gaia Data Release 2

On the basis of recently computed nonlinear convective pulsation models of Galactic Cepheids, spanning wide ranges of input stellar parameters, we derive theoretical mass-dependent Period–Wesenheit

Carbon stars as standard candles: I. The luminosity function of carbon stars in the Magellanic Clouds

Our goal in this paper is to derive a carbon-star luminosity function that will eventually be used to determine distances to galaxies at $50$-$60$ Mpc and hence yield a value of the Hubble constant.
