Fast rotating isolated neutron stars are strong sources of gravitational waves when deformed. One possible source of such a deformation is the occurrence of unstable oscillation modes in the star. Their properties strongly depend on the equation of state, describing the behavior of matter at extremely high densities. A future detection of gravitational waves from rotating neutron stars can thus provide insights not only for relativistic astrophysics, but for nuclear physics as well.
