 January 16, 2004, 03:39 Solving linear stability eq. #1 K S Chang Guest   Posts: n/a I want to solve the linear stability equation. Exactly the equation is Rayleigh equation or Orr-Sommerfeld equation. In my text, there are some methods about temporal stability solution, not about spatial stability. How can I solve this equation about spatial stability ?? If there is good reference, please introduce to me. Thanks in advance.
