Abstract

Until recently, surveys for variable stars in the Magellanic Clouds were carried out in blue and visual passbands, but these passbands are not ideal for finding very cool stars such as long-period variables (LPVs). Consequently, the early surveys generally found only the brightest LPVs in the Magellanic Clouds. The most extensive surveys were the Harvard surveys whose results are summarized by Payne-Gaposhkin and Gaposhkin 1966 (SMC) and Payne-Gaposhkin 1971 (LMC), with some supplementary data in Hodge and Wright (1969) and Wright and Hodge (1971). LPVs were also found during other smaller surveys such as those of Dessy (1959), Butler (1972, 1978) and Lloyd Evans (1971, see also Glass and Lloyd Evans 1981, Lloyd Evans 1978,1985 and Lloyd Evans et al. 1988).
