High-precision distance measurements with classical pulsating stars

29 Jun 2020 Bhardwaj Anupam KIAA-PKU

Classical Cepheid and RR Lyrae variables are radially pulsating stars that trace young and old-age stellar populations, respectively. These classical pulsating stars are the most sensitive probes for the precision stellar astrophysics and the extragalactic distance measurements... (read more)
