Abstract: Mennickent et al. (2002) presented a catalogue of 1056 Be star candidates in the Small Magellanic cloud (SMC) by studying light curve variation using OGLE II data base. They classified these Be star candidates of the SMC in four categories: Type 1 stars showing outbursts (139 stars); Type 2 stars showing sudden luminosity jumps (154 stars); Type 3 stars showing periodic or near periodic variations (78 stars); Type 4 stars showing light curves similar to Galactic Be stars (658 stars). They suggested that Type 4 could be Be stars. On the other hand, they suggested that Type-3 stars may not be linked to the Be star phenomenon at all.
