Topic: difference between white and green tea

it is a little bit annoyng. On some web pages, they are writing, that white tea doesnt undergo heat fixation of any kind (i.e. steaming) and after plucking is only dried. On others it is written that white tea undergoes steaming right after the plucking and doesnt undergo withering.

so...can someone provide an authoritarive link ? Who is right?

I do not have an "authoritative" answer for you (and overall, not a huge drinker of either greens or whites), but I have always liked the graphic on the Wikipedia tea processing article:

You may find that there's some variations in how tea is processed regionally, so the answer may not be as neat as you'd like.
