Abstract :

In the present work, we explore the Rossby mode instabilities in neutron stars as sources of gravitational waves. The intensity and time evolution of the emitted gravitational waves in termsof the amplitude of the strain tensor are estimated in the slow rotation approximation using β- equilibrated neutron star matter obtained from density dependent M3Y effective interaction. For a wide range of neutron star masses, the fiducial gravitational and various viscous time scales, the critical frequencies and the time evolutions of the frequencies are calculated. The dissipative mechanism of the Rossby modes is considered to be driven by the shear viscosity along the boundary layer of the solid crust-liquid core interface as well as in the core and the bulk viscosity. It is found that neutron stars with slower frequency of rotation, for the same mass, radius and surface temperature, are expected to emit gravitational waves of higher intensity.
