J/MNRAS/349/1059    OGLE variables in Galactic bar           (Wray+, 2004)

OGLE small-amplitude variables in the Galactic bar. Wray J.J., Eyer L., Paczynski B. <Mon. Not. R. Astron. Soc., 349, 1059-1068 (2004)> =2004MNRAS.349.1059W
ADC_Keywords: Stars, variable ; Photometry Keywords: stars: variables: other - Galaxy: bulge Abstract: Among over 200000 Galactic bulge variable stars in the public domain Optical Gravitational Lensing Experiment (OGLE) catalogue, we found over 15000 red giant variables following two well-defined period-amplitude relations. The periods are in the range 10<P<100d, and amplitudes in the range 0.005<A<0.13mag in the I band. The variables cover a broad range of reddening-corrected colours, 1<(V-I)0<5, and a fairly narrow range of extinction-corrected apparent magnitudes, 10.5<I0<13. A subset of variables (type A) has an rms scatter of only 0.44mag. The average magnitudes for these stars are well correlated with the Galactic longitude, and vary from Ik,0=11.82 for l=+8° to Ik,0=12.07 for l=-5°, clearly indicating that they are located in the Galactic bar. Most variables have several oscillation periods. File Summary:

Note on atype.dat and btype.dat: In the period-amplitude diagram, in I band, two sequences, separated by two segments of diagonal solid line, are clearly visible. We call the sequence above and to the left of the line type A, and the sequence below and to the right of the line type B. Amplitudes are defined as half of the peak-to-peak amplitude for a given mode.
