Spectrophotometric determination of the temperature of the cepheid ξ Geminorum

  • B. S. Rautela
  • S. C. Joshi


The absolute energy distributions of the cepheid ξ Gem at several phases of the light cycle have been given. By matching these with suitable model atmospheres, the effective temperatures of the star at these phases have been determined. The radius and effective gravity variations as well as the mass have been derived.
