J/A+A/317/761       Miras temperatures, distances & magnitudes (Alvarez+ 1997)

Determination of Miras temperatures from TiO and VO bands. Estimates of distances. Alvarez R., Mennessier M.-O. <Astron. Astrophys. 317, 761 (1997)> =1997A&A...317..761A (SIMBAD/NED BibCode)
ADC_Keywords: Stars, variable ; Models, atmosphere Keywords: stars: atmospheres - stars: distances - stars: fundamental parameters - stars: AGB and post-AGB - Description: Effective temperatures are determined for a sample of 165 oxygen-rich Miras using indices related to molecular band strength of titanium oxide and vanadium oxide. Using a theoretical evolutionary track on AGB, absolute bolometric magnitudes are computed. Apparent bolometric magnitudes are determined from narrow-band photometry observations. They are used to calibrate distances. File Summary:
