Even though one mass appears in the expression for Newton's escape velocity, it cannot be determined without recourse to a fundamental two-body gravitational interaction by means of Newton's theory of gravitation.
According to Einstein's theory of gravitation, the white dwarfs are spiraling toward each other because they're losing energy in the form of gravitational waves-invisible ripples in space-time that cause objects with mass to bob up and down.
