Light curves of four Mira-type variable stars in Centaurus A

Light curves of four Mira stars in Centaurus A. Here the abscissa indicates the pulsation phase (one full period corresponds to the interval from 0 to 1) and the ordinate unit is near-infrared K s -magnitude. One magnitude corresponds to a difference in brightness of a factor 2.5.
