Measuring The Evolutionary Rate Of Cooling Of ZZ Ceti
We have finally measured the evolutionary rate of cooling of the pulsating hydrogen atmosphere (DA) white dwarf ZZ Ceti (Ross 548), as reflected by the drift rate of the 213.13260694 s period. Using 41 yr of time-series ...
Enigmatic Recurrent Pulsational Variability Of The Accreting White Dwarf EQ LYN (Sdss J074531.92+453829.6)
Photometric observations of the cataclysmic variable EQ Lyn (SDSS J074531.92+453829.6), acquired from 2005 October to 2006 January, revealed high-amplitude variability in the range 1166-1290 s. This accreting white dwarf ...
Discovery of an Ultramassive Pulsating White Dwarf
We announce the discovery of the most massive pulsating hydrogen-atmosphere white dwarf (WD) ever discovered, GD 518. Model atmosphere fits to the optical spectrum of this star show it is a 12,030 +/- 210 K WD with a log ...
Discovery of A ZZ Ceti in the Kepler Mission Field
We report the discovery of the first identified pulsating DA white dwarf, WD J1916+3938 (Kepler ID 4552982), in the field of the Kepler mission. This ZZ Ceti star was first identified through ground-based, time-series ...
