astro-ph variable-star papers

We recently released a significant update to the backend systems for the AAVSO website. While most of the bugs introduced by this update have been fixed, there may still be problems we haven't fixed. If you run into a problem, please email

Hans-Guenter Diederich and Andreas Barchfeld of the BAV have kindly given me permission to cross-post their weekly list of variable-star papers.  The BAV has been compiling this for years.  When I subscribed to the BAV Forum in 2006, the astro-ph digests were already in progress!  I will add each week on as part of this thread.

The BAV Forum mail-list is very active and covers a wide variety of mostly technical topics.  I enjoy it a lot, and for those of you who do not speak German, Google Translate does a pretty good job of giving you the basic concepts contained in each post.  Likewise, their Rundbrief publication contains many good variable-star articles, and can be found at:

(In German, but the translators do a decent job).
