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…

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.
