Definitions for "Stability"
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.
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.
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.
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.
Keywords:  paddler, kayak, walkers, tipping, easy
How easy or difficult a kayak is to tip, affected by a kayak's hull shape – its width and flare. initial – A kayak's resistance to leaning in flat, calm water or when you're sitting straight in the boat. secondary – A kayak's resistance to tipping once it has been leaned, by the paddler or by surf or chop, beyond its initial stability. Secondary stability is essential in rough water or when you want to turn the kayak by leaning. Pronounced flare in the hull creates secondary stability.
Check carriages, baby walkers, high chairs etc for the presence of wide bases that will prevent easy tipping over.
Keywords:  fixedness, fluidity, opposed
Fixedness; -- as opposed to fluidity.
The capability of the software product to avoid unexpected effects from modifications in the software.
Attributes of software that bear on the risk of unexpected effect of modifications. (ISO 9126: 1991, A.2.5.3)
A semiquantitative measure of the mixing capabilities of the lower atmosphere; usually termed the Pasquill– Gifford categories.
Ecosystems tend toward stability. If not, trees would grow at angles to the earth, deer populations would spread like wildfire across the globe, and mountains unimpeded by erosion or gravity would thrust into space.
Keywords:  surmounted, hurdle, major
a major hurdle yet to be successfully surmounted
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.
Keywords:  steadfast, stretchy, firm, tight, yards
the quality or attribute of being firm and steadfast
The character of the fabric, whether it is woven of loose stretchy yards or tight firm ones.
in reference to soil or rock, stability refers to those that do not easily move downslope when saturated with water or shook by earthquakes.
The tenure and turnover of teaching staff in an early childhood program. Centers with high turnover and/or staff who have not worked at the program for a long period of time have low staff stability.
state in which a construction under the effect of the stresses has to remain; this state has to place the whole building in sufficient safety with regard to the criterion of ruin.
How long a gas mixture is actually good. The time over which components of a gas mixture will remain at their certified concentrations within specified tolerances.
A kind of “reliability”; it shows how alike measurements are at different times with the same test or scale.
A measure of system accuracy and reliability. Indicates how little a system reading moves from an original value.
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.
an important determinant of gene expression in plants
an important determinant of mRNA abundance in virtually all organisms
Keywords:  kite, fly, enabling, balance, good
the balance of the kite enabling it to fly with good control.
Stability refers to how long a fragrance lasts, either in the bottle with the other ingredients, or exposed to heat, light or air.
Producing the same outcome from a given set of ballots each time it is counted.
Stability is 100 minus the surge limit at rated discharge pressure, where the surge limit is expressed in percentage of rated capacity. ( 060)
The chemical stability of an analyte in a given matrix under specific conditions for given time intervals.
The study of the integrity of a drug substance or finished product over time under various, well defined and controlled storage conditions.
Absence of volatility; usually desirable. see also Banking Act of 1933, European Monetary System, fiscal policy.
In probability theory and statistics, the stability of a family of probability distributions is an important property which basically states that if one has a number of random variates that are "in the family", any linear combination of these variates will also be "in the family". Specifically, the family of probability distributions here is a location-scale family, consisting of probability distributions that differ only in location and scale and "in the family" means that the random variates have a distribution function that is a member of the family.

When something is secure and not going to wash away, fall down, or lose its strength, it has stability.
The condition though which a soil is capable of supporting loads without attaining failure.
A discrete time dynamical system is often called a map.
