Title: Pulsating White Dwarf search in COROT's field

Abstract: We propose to search for pulsating white dwarfs in the Galactic center and anti-center. We will search in two 1 x 2 degrees fields that will be observed by the exoplanet field of the COROT satellite. This satellite will observe each of these fields for six months, non stop. The detection of a single pulsating white dwarf in one of these fields would allow us to obtain time series data of unprecedented quality and length ever obtained for any pulsating white dwarf.
