Gravity Modes in Zz Ceti Stars. Iii. Effects of Turbulent Dissipation


We investigate dynamical interactions between turbulent convection and g-mode pulsations in ZZ Ceti variables. Since our understanding of turbulence is rudimentary, we are compelled to settle for order-ofmagnitude results. A key feature of these interactions is that convective response times are much shorter than pulsation periods. Thus the dynamical… (More)
