RAVE spectroscopy of luminous blue variables in the Large Magellanic Cloud

Abstract:

Context. The RAVE spectroscopic survey for galactic structure and evolution obtains 8400-8800 Å spectra at 7500 resolving power at the UK Schmidt Telescope using the 6dF multi-fiber positioner. More than 300 000 9 ≤ I C ≤ 12 and |b|≥ 25° southern stars have been observed to date. Aims. This paper presents the first intrinsic examination of stellar spectra from the RAVE survey, aimed at evaluating their diagnostic potential for peculiar stars and at contributing to the general understanding of...
