Abstract: We review the main results obtained in the literature on quasi-normal modesof compact stars and black holes, in the light of recent exciting developmentsof gravitational wave detectors. Quasi-normal modes are a fundamental featureof the gravitational signal emitted by compact objects in many astrophysicalprocesses; we will show that their eigenfrequencies encode interestinginformation on the nature and on the inner structure of the emitting source andwe will discuss whether we are ready for a gravitational wave asteroseismology.
