J/A+A/447/89        Luminous AGB stars in nearby galaxies    (Tsalmantza+, 2006)

Luminous AGB stars in nearby galaxies: A study using Virtual Observatory tools. Tsalmantza P., Kontizas E., Cambresy L., Genova F., Dapergolas A., Kontizas M. <Astron. Astrophys. 447, 89 (2006)> =2006A&A...447...89T
ADC_Keywords: Galaxies, nearby ; Stars, giant ; Photometry, infrared Keywords: stars: carbon - Local group - stars: AGB and post-AGB - infrared: stars - Magellanic Clouds Abstract: This study focuses on very luminous (Mbol←6.0mag) AGB stars with J-Ks>1.5mag and H-Ks>0.4mag in the LMC, SMC, M 31, and M 33 from 2MASS data. Description: The data were taken from the 2MASS All-Sky Point Source catalogue archive. We used Virtual Observatory tools and took advantage of its capabilities at various stages in the analysis.
