Abstract

In the past few years, the Magellanic Clouds have been the targets for several major variable star surveys. The results of these surveys are now becoming available and it is clear that a Renaissance in LMC and SMC variable star research will result. In this review, I will describe the results of such surveys and review the questions that are likely to be answered by further work.

With respect to results, I will concentrate on LMC MACHO Project data, including beat Cepheids, discovery statistics, mode identification, Fourier decomposition of lightcurves, and the differences between the LMC and galactic sample.
