Optical Novae in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC)

We created a catalogue of all historical optical novae detected in the LMC. During this work we noticed that a homogeneous naming of all novae in LMC is missing. We decided to extend the CBAT naming scheme for M 31 novae to all optical novae and candidates in M 33 that have been reported in the literature and make the information available together with additional parameters and references in an up-to-date form via the Internet.
We intend to update the Internet pages regularly. Observers are encouraged to provide input for historical and forthcoming optical novae in the LMC to the email address below.

We will include photometric and spectroscopic data of optical novae and candidates in the LMC covering all wavelengths.

File ReadMe gives the format of the LMC Nova Table and the Table with Corresponding References.
The catalogue was last updated on 05/11/18 and contains 55 sources.
