Using NASA’s TESS Mission to Search for Extremely Low Mass White Dwarf Stars

Abstract Extremely low-mass white dwarf stars (ELM) are white dwarf stars with a mass lower than 0.45M  that could not have evolved through normal processes within the lifetime of our universe. Therefore, these objects can only be created through a common envelope phase or a stable Roche lobe overflow while in a binary (Pelisoli & …
