I will review and explain calculations of bulk and shear
viscosity in various phases of dense quark matter, in unpaired quark
matter as well as in color-superconducting phases such as the
color-flavor locked phase. I will discuss and interpret the results,
which are relevant for instance for the r-mode instability in rotating
stars and thus are measurable, at least indirectly, through
astrophysical observations.
