  • In this work, we present the theoretically expected rates of pulsation period change for V777 Her (DBV) vari- able stars. To this end we employ new evolutionary models representative of pulsating DB white dwarf stars computed in a self-consistent way with the predictions of time-dependent element diffusion. At the hot edge of the DB instability strip, the envelopes of the models are characterized by a diffusion-induced double-layered chemical structure. We compute the numerical values of rates… CONTINUE READING
