Abstract (from CDS):

We present a sample of M31 beat Cepheids from the Pan-STARRS 1 PAndromeda campaign. By analyzing 3 years of PAndromeda data, we identify 17 beat Cepheids, spreading over a galactocentric distance of 10-16 kpc. Since the relation between the fundamental mode period and the ratio of the fundamental to the first overtone period places a tight constraint on metallicity, we are able to derive the metallicity at the position of the beat Cepheids using the relations from the model of Buchler. Our metallicity estimates show sub-solar values within 15 kpc, similar to the metallicities from H II regions. We then use the metallicity estimates to calculate the metallicity gradient of the M31 disk, which we find to be closer to the metallicity gradient derived from planetary nebula than the metallicity gradient from H II regions.
