6
r-mode instability A non-axisymmetric instability driven by gravitational radiation Rotation provides the restoring force ( Coriolis ) R-mode instability is responsible for slowing down a rapidly rotating, newly born neutron star r-modes are unstable to CFS (Chandrasekhar 1970, Friedman and Schutz 1978 ) instability

7
Gravitational Radiation Reaction driven instability For slowly rotating stars,GR removes positive angular momentum from forward moving mode, and negative angular momentum from backward mode GR damps the perturbation For a star with large, a mode that moves backward relative to the star appears as a forward moving mode relative to the inertial observer (CFS instability ) GR removes positive angular momentum from a mode whose angular momentum is negative ( moves backward relative to the fluid ) By making angular momentum of the perturbation increasingly negative, GR drives the mode

8
Growth vs Damping Bulk viscosity: arises because the pressure and density variations associated with the mode oscillation drive the fluid away from chemical equilibrium. It estimates the energy dissipated from the fluid motion as weak interaction tries to re- establish equilibrium Viscosity tends to counteract the growth of the GW instability Viscosity would stabilize any mode whose growth time is longer than the viscous damping time There must exist a critical angular velocity c above which the perturbation will grow, and below which it will be damped by viscosity If > c, the rate of radiation of angular momentum in gravity waves will rapidly slow the star, till it reaches c and can rotate stably
