And starts, disturbed, a quiverer there;
The helmsman rubs the clouded glass--
Peers in, but lets the trembling portent pass.

Stable mass transfer leads to the formation of AM CVn systems that transfer angular momentum back to the orbit, which increases the orbital period.

The fundamental perspective adopted here is that predictions in climate models correspond to transfer of information; specifically transfer of information between the initial conditions (which in general are not known completely) and the state of the climate system at some future time.

It has to be appreciated as well that even in the case of double white dwarf binaries γ-formalism implies an energy generation during the first episode of the mass transfer, reconstructing as such a non-dynamical event but not a CE (likely, a stable mass transfer, as was shown in Woods et al. 2011b).
