Abstract

We analyze yet-unknown genetic links between open star clusters (OSCs) and galactic Cepheids and report the results of the new search for Cepheids – probable OSC members. A sample of 25% of the stars from a new catalog by Berdnikov (published in Melnik et al. 2015) which lists 674 Cepheids with reliable parameters was investigated. Based on photometric and kinematic data, we selected 17 Cepheids that are likely to be related to star clusters, four of which being new OSCs discovered by us.

Keywords: stars: variables: Cepheids; open clusters and associations: general
