III/199A            Observed Periods of Ap and Bp stars   (Catalano+ 1998)

The Observed Periods of Ap and Bp stars Catalano F.A., Renson P. <Astron. Astrophys. Suppl. Ser. 127, 421 (1998)> =1998A&AS..127..421C
ADC_Keywords: Stars, Ap ; Stars, Bp ; Stars, variable Keywords: catalog - stars: chemically peculiar - stars: variable: other Description: A catalogue of all the periods published up to 31 October 1996 on 364 CP stars is presented; it supersedes the previous version (catalog III/152). The paper version (catalog.tex) is arranged in three tables: the bulk of the data, i.e. those referring to CP2, CP3, and CP4 stars, are given in Table 1, while the data concerning He-strong stars are given in Table 2 and those for eclipsing or ellipsoidal variables are collected in Table 3. Notes are also provided at the end of each table, mainly about duplicities. The machine-readable version was arranged in two main parts: the main parameters of the 364 stars (identifiers and names, positions, spectral types, magnitudes and peculiarities) are tabulated in the file 'stars'; periods and the of the observed variations (light, spectrum, magnetic field, etc.) are listed in the 'periods' file. Two other files contains the notes and the references. File Summary:

Note (1): In the paper, Table 1 deals with CP2, CP3 and CP4 stars; Table 2 deals with He-string stars, and Table 3 with eclipsing or ellipsoidal variables. Note (2): He wk means that the star belongs the the He weak subgroup. Note (3): : approximate value ? dubious value Note (4): l: luminosity and/or color m: magnetic field s: spectral line intensity v: wavelength displacements of the lines of an ion, interpreted as mean radial velocity variations for that ion.

History: This version of the catalog, superseding the one distributed by CDS between July 1997 and February 1998, differs for only 7 stars. Acknowledgements: Is is a pleasure to thank Dr Francesco Catalano (email: ), who kindly prepared this new version of the Catalog of the Periods of Ap and Am stars in February 1997 on request from CDS.
