We calculate the spectrum of inertial oscillation modes in a slowly rotating superfluid neutron star, including for the first time both effects of finite temperatures and entrainment between superfluid neutrons and protons. We work in Newtonian limit and assume minimal core composition (neutrons, protons and electrons). We also developed an approximate method that allows to calculate the superfluid r-mode analytically. Lastly, we derive and analyze a dispersion relation for inertial modes in superfluid NS matter in a short wavelength limit.
