Abstract

Current periods and new epochs are presented for 40 very poorly studied Mira variables. The average periods of these stars were also determined using earlier epochs found in the literature. The current period differs significantly from the average period value in 4 cases. The importance of the period variation study of Mira stars is also briefly discussed.
