The catalogue provides for each of the 134 W-R stars of Population I presently known in the Large Magellanic Cloud, accurate equatorial coordinates, photometric data, spectral classification, binary status, correlation with OB associations and HII regions. The miscellaneous designations of the stars are also listed. Although completeness is not pretended, results published during the last decade are highlighted in the notes given for each individual star. A uniform set of finding charts is presented.

Key words: Catalogs -- galaxies: Magellanic Clouds -- galaxies: stellar content -- stars: Wolf-Rayet

What is OpenURL?

The OpenURL standard is a protocol for transmission of metadata describing the resource that you wish to access.

An OpenURL link contains article metadata and directs it to the OpenURL server of your choice. The OpenURL server can provide access to the resource and also offer complementary services (specific search engine, export of references...). The OpenURL link can be generated by different means.

  • If your librarian has set up your subscription with an OpenURL resolver, OpenURL links appear automatically on the abstract pages.
  • You can define your own OpenURL resolver with your EDPS Account.
    In this case your choice will be given priority over that of your library.
  • You can use an add-on for your browser (Firefox or I.E.) to display OpenURL links on a page (see You should disable this module if you wish to use the OpenURL server that you or your library have defined.
