Abstract : An example is presented which shows that the boundary of stability in an antisymmetric stratified shear flow is not necessarily marked by steady neutral waves with c = 0. The stability characteristics of stratified shear flow in the neighbourhood of the neutral curve are also discussed. (Author)
