Stability of Hydro dynamical System Using Normal Mode Technique

Vivek Parkash


The subject of stability theory is of considerable importance because of its relevance to physical situations such as the convective instability in stars, heating of solar corona, stability of stellar interiors in magnetic stars, stability of highly ionized plasma surrounded by a slightly ionized cold gas, stability of the system where air is blown over mercury, thermal convective instability in stellar atmosphere, stability of tangential discontinuities in the solar wind, stability of streams of charged particles emanating from the sun and excitation of water waves by the wind.
