White Dwarfs Proceedings of the 10th European Workshop on White Dwarfs, held in Blanes, Spain, 17–21 June 1996

The study of white dwarfs has been steadily growing during the last years and now is a mature field extending its influence over many others. Since white dwarfs are long lived objects, they can be used to obtain information about the history of the Galaxy. The simplicity of their structures enables...
