The algorithms were applied to ∼2.4*105 I-band light curves previously obtained by the M33 Synoptic Stellar Survey. We derive preliminary period-luminosity relations at optical, near-infrared, and mid-infrared wavelengths and compare them to the corresponding relations in the Large Magellanic Cloud. Description: We carried out a search for Mira variables in M33 using sparsely sampled I-band light curves. We based our search on the observations of M33 obtained by Macri et al. 2001 (Cat. J/AJ/121/861) and Pellerin et al. 2011 (Cat. J/ApJS/193/26). These surveys covered most of the disk of this galaxy with a combined baseline of nearly a decade (1996 September to 1999 November for Macri et al. 2001, Cat. J/AJ/121/861; 2002 August to 2006 August for Pellerin et al. 2011, Cat. J/ApJS/193/26) mainly using the Fred L. Whipple Observatory (FLWO) 1.2m and the WIYN observatory 3.5m telescopes with a variety of cameras (see the respective publications for details). While images were obtained in multiple bandpasses (BVI), our analysis is only based on the I-band time-series photometry because Mira candidates fall below the detection limit in the bluer bands. Our final sample consists of 1847 Mira candidates (see Table2). File Summary:
