(Received 3 May 2005 / Accepted 9 June 2005 )

We report the detection of nonradial g-mode oscillations in the DA white dwarfs HS 1039+4112 (B=15.9) and HE 1429-0343 (B=15.8) from time-series photometry made at the Loiano 1.5 m telescope. The two stars were previously selected as probable pulsators based on two-color photometry and spectral analysis respectively. Following our temperature and surface gravity determinations, HS 1039+4112 ( $\mbox{$T_{\rm eff}$ } = 11\,200$ K, $\mbox{$\log g$ } =8.2$) is located near the red edge of the ZZ Ceti instability strip, whereas HE 1429-0343 ( $\mbox{$T_{\rm eff}$ }=11\,400$ K, $\mbox{$\log g$ }=7.8$) falls in the middle of the strip. Both stars show a multi-mode behavior with the main periods at about 850 and 970 s respectively, and relatively large amplitudes (~7% and ~2.5%).

Key words: stars: white dwarfs -- stars: oscillations -- stars: individual: HS 1039+4112, HE 1429-0343

What is OpenURL?

The OpenURL standard is a protocol for transmission of metadata describing the resource that you wish to access.

An OpenURL link contains article metadata and directs it to the OpenURL server of your choice. The OpenURL server can provide access to the resource and also offer complementary services (specific search engine, export of references...). The OpenURL link can be generated by different means.

  • If your librarian has set up your subscription with an OpenURL resolver, OpenURL links appear automatically on the abstract pages.
  • You can define your own OpenURL resolver with your EDPS Account.
    In this case your choice will be given priority over that of your library.
  • You can use an add-on for your browser (Firefox or I.E.) to display OpenURL links on a page (see http://www.openly.com/openurlref/). You should disable this module if you wish to use the OpenURL server that you or your library have defined.
