At least one third of all stars are variable, with 38 being periodic. We found 27 pulsators (λ Eri variables), six eclipsing systems, two bursting sources, and several stars with unusual photometric behavior. Pulsations are present in ∼30% of known Be stars, and they are long lived, lasting more than a decade. The strongest pulsators are associated with stars evolved from the main sequence. File Summary:

(2007, Cat. J/A+A/472/577); 4 = see text for B224 and B317. stats = Stars with SigI lying along the "non-variable" (lower) edge of the relation sigI vs Imag were not analyzed for possible periods. For those stars we only looked at the statistics of their photometry (the standard deviation), but we made no full analysis for possible periods. See section 3 for more details.
