Effects of [Fe/H] on the properties of Galactic classical Cepheids

Péter Klagyivik, László Szabados

Research output: Contribution to journalConference article


Correlations have been searched for between the atmospheric [Fe/H] value and the observed amplitudes of classical Cepheids. Model calculations show that fundamental mode pulsation is unstable for solar like chemical composition between 8 and 10 days, but observations contradict the models. The ratio of the radial velocity and photometric amplitudes, AVRAD/AB, shows a mild metallicity dependence.
