A catalogue of all the periods up to now proposed for the variations
of CP2, CP3, and CP4 stars is presented. The main identifiers (HD and
HR), the proper name, the variable-star name, and the spectral type
and peculiarity are given for each star as far as the coordinates at
2000.0 and the visual magnitude. The nature of the observed variations
(light, spectrum, magnetic field, etc.) is presented in a codified way.
The catalogue is arranged in three tables: the bulk of the data, i.e.
those referring to CP2, CP3, and CP4 stars, are given in Table 1, while
the data concerning He-strong stars are given in Table 2 and those for
eclipsing or ellipsoidal variables are collected in Table 3. Notes are
also provided at the end of each table, mainly about duplicities.
The catalogue contains data on 364 CP stars and is updated to 1996, October 31.
