The Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA) will provide us with the largest observational sample of (interacting) double white dwarf binaries, whose evolution is driven by the radiation reaction and other effects, such as tides and mass transfer. We show that, depending on the actual physical parameters of a source, LISA will be able to provide us with a very different quality of information: for some systems, LISA can test unambiguously the physical processes driving the binary evolution… Expand
