J/A+A/316/147       Catalogue of ROSAT White Dwarfs         (Fleming+ 1996)

Catalogue and luminosity function of white dwarfs detected in the ROSAT All-Sky Survey Fleming T.A., Snowden S.L., Pfeffermann E., Briel U., Greiner J. <Astron. Astrophys. 316, 147 (1996)> =1996A&A...316..147F (SIMBAD/NED BibCode)
ADC_Keywords: Stars, white dwarf ; X-ray sources Mission_Name: ROSAT Keywords: stars: white dwarfs - stars: statistics - X-rays: stars - surveys Description: Table1 lists all white dwarf stars, both previously-catalogued and newly discovered, which have been detected in the ROSAT All-Sky Survey. The positions and count rates of the X-ray sources associated with each star are given, as well as spectral types and other star names for those stars which have been previously catalogued. Table2 lists distances estimated via Balmer line profile fitting, corrected (for IS absorption) X-ray luminosities, and each star's contribution to the X-ray luminosity function for all DA white dwarfs which were detected in the ROSAT All-Sky Survey.
