Theoretical models for classical Cepheids VII. Metallicity effects on the Cepheid distance scale

Abstract

We use theoretical Period-Luminosity and Period-Luminosity-Color relations in the V I passbands, as based on nonlinear, nonlocal and time-dependent convective pulsating models, to predict the reddening and true distance modulus of distant Cepheids observed with the Hubble Space Telescope. By relying on the pulsating models with metal content Z=0.008, we… (More)
