Cepheid distances based on Gaia and [email protected] observations

28 Feb 2020 Ripepi V. Molinaro R. Marconi M. Cioni M. -R. L.

We present new accurate Period-Luminosity (PL) and Period-Wesenheit (PW) relations in the V,J,Ks bands based on a sample of more than 4500 Cepheids in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) whose photometry was obtained in the context of the VISTA Magellanic Clouds (VMC) Survey. The excellent precision of these data allows us to study the geometry of the LMC and to establish a solid baseline for extra-galactic distance scale studies... (read more)
