In science:

These “case B” models apply to stars of relatively low luminosity, typically where L∗/M∗ < 3500 L⊙/M⊙ , the pulsational periods are less than 300 days and the effective temperatures of the mass-losing stars are greater than 2600 K.
The Very Slow Wind From the Pulsating Semiregular Red Giant L2 Pup
The metallicity of high-density regions has been underestimated in our simulation since stars in galaxies at the present day have been enriched to solar abundance (Edmunds & Phillips 1997), whereas ours have Z = 0.3Z⊙ . A higher metallicity will increase the fraction of stars in a given galaxy.

Severe criteria in the shape analysis with respect to the Paczy´nski fit were adopted (with a stringent cut for the χ2 ) and, furthermore, candidates with both a long timescale (t1/2 > 40 days) and a red colour ((R − I )C > 1) were excluded, since these most likely originate from variable stars.
