What can we learn from WET about how to make white dwarfs?


Abstract (from CDS):

Aside from the many things we have learned about stellar pulsation from the pulsating white dwarfs, seismic study of their interiors feeds back into the theory of stellar evolution. In particular, from pulsating white dwarfs has come a much better understanding of the processes by which white dwarfs are made. In this brief review, I describe what the hot pulsating white dwarfs have taught us about white dwarf interiors, and how this knowledge has tested the theory of stellar evolution. I also discuss some future prospects for continued discoveries in stellar evolution through study of the pulsators.
