Title: Instabilities of Rotating Relativistic Stars
Author(s): K. D. Kokkotas (Oral)
are going to present an overview of the astrophysical implications of
the r-mode instability together with some related caveats. Especially,
we will focus on the effects of the r-mode instability on the evolution
due to accretion of the Low Mass X-ray (LMXB) binaries and we will
discuss the problems raised from the study of the rotational
instabilities in general relativity.
