Importance of Tidesfor Periastron Precession in Eccentric Neutron Star - White Dwarf Binaries
Midwest Relativity Meeting

The quadrupolarperiastron precession constant k2is a measure of the WD's central concentration
Is GR enough to place correct constraints on the WD mass?
How bad can NOT accounting for tides be?
“Alright, alright!! I get it, tides are important. But how do you expect me to accurately interpret periastron precession rate if I know nothing about the internal structure of the WD?”
Use it well.
