We analyse the presence of nonradial oscillations in Cepheids, a problem that has not been theoretically revised since the work of Dziembowsky (1977, Acta Astron., 27, 95) and Osaki (1977, Publ. Astron. Soc. Japan, 29, 235). Our analysis is motivated by a work of Moskalik et al. (2004, ASPC, 310, 498), which reports the detection of low-amplitude periodicities in a few Cepheids of the large Magellanic cloud. These newly discovered periodicities were interpreted as nonradial modes. Based on linear nonadiabatic stability analysis, our goal is to reanalyse the presence and stability of nonradial modes, taking into account improvement in the main input physics required for the modelling of Cepheids.
