Stars and planets are all rotating. Due to the conservation of angular momentum, this leads to specific oscillations known as inertial oscillations. These oscillations are low-frequency and own many peculiarities, like singularities. In this talk I will review the recent progresses in the understanding of these oscillations, which raise many mathematical problems. I will also discuss how the properties of these waves might affect the oscillation spectrum of stars and planets, their internal dynamics or their response to a tidal forcing
