We analyze damping of oscillations of general relativistic superfluid neutron stars. To this aim we extend the method of decoupling of superfluid and normal oscillation modes first suggested in [Gusakov & Kantor PRD 83, 081304(R) (2011)]. All calculations are made self-consistently within the finite temperature superfluid hydrodynamics. The general analytic formulas are derived for damping times due to the shear and bulk viscosities. These formulas describe both normal and superfluid neutron…

Quasinormal modes of superfluid neutron stars
We study non-radial oscillations of neutron stars with superfluid baryons, in a general relativistic framework, including finite temperature effects. Using a perturbative approach, we derive the
Constraining Neutron Superfluidity with R-Mode Physics.
TLDR
The extreme sensitivity of the positions of avoided crossings to the neutron superfluidity model allows us to constrain the latter by confronting the calculated spectra with observations of rapidly rotating neutron stars in low-mass x-ray binaries.
Temperature-dependent r-modes in superfluid neutron stars stratified by muons
We calculate the finite-temperature r-mode spectrum of a slowly rotating superfluid Newtonian neutron star neglecting the entrainment between neutron and proton liquid components (i.e., neglecting
Universal and approximate relations for the gravitational-wave damping timescale of f-modes in neutron stars
Existing estimates of the gravitational-wave damping timescale of the dominant quadrupole oscillation mode in the case of rapidly rotating stars are based on using a Newtonian estimate for the energy
Resonance suppression of the r -mode instability in superfluid neutron stars: Accounting for muons and entrainment
We calculate the finite-temperature $r$-mode spectrum of a superfluid neutron star accounting for both muons in the core and the entrainment between neutrons and protons. We show that the standard
Thermal g-modes and unexpected convection in superfluid neutron stars
We suggest that specific thermal low-frequency g-modes can exist in superfluid neutron stars. They can be excited in the matter with a nonzero gradient of entropy per electron. We determine the
Saturation of the f -mode instability in neutron stars. II. Applications and results
We present the first results on the saturation of the f-mode instability in neutron stars, due to nonlinear mode coupling. Emission of gravitational waves drives the f-mode (fundamental mode)
R-mode constraints from neutron star equation of state
The gravitational radiation has been proposed a long time before, as an explanation for the observed relatively low spin frequencies of young neutron stars and of accreting neutron stars in low-mass

It is considered a closed system of non-linear equations for the entrainment matrix of a non-relativistic mixture of superfluid nucleons at arbitrary temperatures below the onset of neutron

We analyse the oscillations of general relativistic superfluid hyperon stars, following the approach suggested by Gusakov & Kantor and Gusakov et al. and generalizing it to the nucleon-hyperon
