Discovery Of Pulsations, Including Possible Pressure Modes, In Two New Extremely Low Mass, He-Core White Dwarfs
We report the discovery of the second and third pulsating extremely low mass (ELM) white dwarfs (WDs), SDSS J111215.82+111745.0 (hereafter J1112) and SDSS J151826.68+065813.2 (hereafter J1518). Both have masses < 0.25 ...
Seismology Of A Massive Pulsating Hydrogen Atmosphere White Dwarf
We report our observations of the new pulsating hydrogen atmosphere white dwarf SDSS J132350.28+010304.22. We discovered periodic photometric variations in frequency and amplitude that are commensurate with nonradial g-mode ...
Fine Grid Asteroseismology Of G117-B15A And R548
We now have a good measurement of the cooling rate of G117-B15A. In the near future, we will have equally well determined cooling rates for other pulsating white dwarfs, including R548. The ability to measure their cooling ...
SDSS J184037.78+642312.3: the First Pulsating Extremely Low Mass White Dwarf
We report the discovery of the first pulsating extremely low mass (ELM) white dwarf (WD), SDSS J184037.78+642312.3 (hereafter J1840). This DA (hydrogen-atmosphere) WD is by far the coolest and the lowest-mass pulsating WD, ...
