S Doradus Type; Hubble-Sandage Variables

B. Wolf
1986 Symposium - International astronomical union  
The luminous S Dor variables or Hubble-Sandage variables have gained considerable interest during the past few years for their exceptional (if compared to normal luminous hot stars) stellar wind properties. They seem to represent a short intermezzo in the evolution of the very massive stars prior to becoming WR stars. More recent results on S Dor variables (mainly of the LMC) are briefly summarized. Since most of the data have been or are going to be published elsewhere only an outline will be presented here.
