  • Detection of g-mode pulsations in the lightcurve would have a transformative effect on the field of WD pulsations, as this would allow the first seismological study of the interior of a helium core WD, and the low gravity strongly constrains theories for the driving and amplitudes of pulsations.

  • The author would therefore encourage observers to produce not only their mid-transit times, but also transit durations for each transit, rather than composite lightcurve durations.

  • To reveal the contributions in light variations at the different oscillation frequencies a Fourier power density spectrum is obtained from each lightcurve (Figure 1).
