The state or quality of being stable, or firm; steadiness; stableness; firmness; strength to stand without being moved or overthrown; as, the stability of a structure; the stability of a throne or a constitution.
Steadiness or firmness of character; firmness of resolution or purpose; the quality opposite to fickleness, irresolution, or inconstancy; constancy; steadfastness; as, a man of little stability, or of unusual stability.
The degree to which an ecosystem can resist change or rebound from change.
A process ability to produce consistent results over time. Stability does not necessarily mean the process makes good products. 171
In wireless, the accuracy to which the operating frequency is maintained through temperature changes and over time.
The maximum amount of frequency deviation of the oscillator. Stability includes the tolerance at 25? C; drift over operating temperature range; changes in input voltage; changes in load, shock, vibration; and aging.
the percent of change of the baseline and/or sensitivity in time.
the quality of being free from change or variation
The degree to which the price of an investment does not fluctuate.
the degree to which the composted material can be stored or used without giving rise to nuisances, or can be applied to the soil without causing problems due to incomplete degradation of readily biodegradable materials.
Degree of support and motion control a shoe gives to the foot during the gait cycle.
state or condition in which the composted material can be stored without giving rise to nuisances or can be applied to the soil without causing problems there, the desired degree of stability for finished compost is one in which the readily decomposed compounds are broken down and only the decomposition of the more resistant biologically decomposable compounds remains to be accomplished.
The force that holds a vessel upright or returns it to upright if keeled over. Weight in the lower hold increases stability. A vessel is stiff if it has high stability, tender if it has low stability.
The force that holds a vessel upright or returns it to upright in the event it is keeled over. Weights on the lower hold increase stability. A vessel is called stiff if it has high stability, tender if it has low stability.
A state of the atmosphere where the vertical distribution of temperature is such that a parcel will resist displacement from its initial position.
The capacity of a vessel to return to its original position after having been displaced by external forces. The stability of a vessel depends on the meta-centric height.
information that indicates whether the cause of the success (or failure) is an enduring characteristic or one that changes or disappears over time
The extent to which a preparation retains, within specified limits, and throughout its period of storage and use, the same properties and characteristics that it possessed at the time of compounding.
Characteristic of a material that does not react, or reacts only very slightly, to ambient variations such as relative humidity.
Stability is best defined as the opposite of instability, which is the occurrence of large structural deformations which are not the result of material failure.
The degree to which a material or perfume is effected over time by heat, light and air. Or if the perfume is in a product(application) how it is effected over time by interaction with the base of that product. Instability may show itself by change in colour, odour, separation of the product or viscosity.
From the early times instability of the search results in general, and of the number that represents results in particular has been a subject of special concern. Certainly the Web is a highly dynamic system, growing at an incredible pace, but also the crawlers change their specifications and schedule unexpectedly. A world crawling round can last from 15 to 45 days and in this meantime.
