Presented at a memorial symposium in honor of Dr. Janet A. Mattei, Brandeis University, Waltham, MA, October 29, 2004; received June 6, 2005; revised June 28, 2005; accepted June 28, 2005

 

Abstract  Janet Mattei's name is on more than 70 papers concerning Mira variables or related classes of red variables. Janet also helped to start several observational programs concerning particular types of variables, and was involved with the planning and/or data analysis on space missions that observed these stars. In this review I put her contributions into a general context of work in this field.
