Stability properties are presented of dipole and quadrupole nonradial oscillation modes of model stars that experienced a late helium shell flash on their way to the white-dwarf cooling domain. The computed instability domains are compared with the observed hot variable central stars of planetary nebulae and the GW Vir pulsators.
Key words: stars: evolution / stars: white dwarfs / stars: oscillations
