Radius Constraints From High-Speed Photometry Of 20 Low-Mass White Dwarf Binaries
We carry out high-speed photometry on 20 of the shortest-period, detached white dwarf binaries known and discover systems with eclipses, ellipsoidal variations (due to tidal deformations of the visible white dwarf), and ...
A Gravitational Redshift Determination Of The Mean Mass Of White Dwarfs. DA Stars
We measure apparent velocities (v(app)) of the H alpha and H beta Balmer line cores for 449 non-binary thin disk normal DA white dwarfs (WDs) using optical spectra taken for the European Southern Observatory SN Ia progenitor ...
