The Search for Planets Around Pulsating White Dwarf Stars
Part of the
NATO Science Series
book series (NAII, volume 105)
We introduce a new technique to search for extra-solar planets with a different sensitivity from other methods, using the pulsations of white dwarf stars as intrinsic clocks. We will search for the effects of reflex orbital motion in changing light travel times and accelerations caused by any planets orbiting these stars. Our technique is sensitive to planets in the range 2-20 AU.
