  PlanetMath: stable sorting algorithm
Some examples of stable sorting algorithms are bubblesort and mergesort (although the stability of mergesort is dependent upon how it is implemented).
Stability is a useful property when the total ordering relation is dependent upon initial position.
Using a stable sorting algorithm means that sorting by ascending position for equal keys is built-in, and need not be implemented explicitly in the comparison operator.

 Stable isotope - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Stable isotopes of the same element have the same chemical characteristics and therefore behave almost identically.
For example, the difference in mass between the two stable isotopes of hydrogen H-1 (1 proton, no neutron) and H-2 (also known as deuterium, 1 proton, 1 neutron) is almost 100%.
Commonly analysed stable isotopes include oxygen, carbon, nitrogen, hydrogen and sulfur.

 Southeast Alaska: Stable Isotopes
Stable isotopes have been used to determine many things about fossil organisms such as their diet, their trophic level, and the temperature of their environment.
Carbon-12 and Carbon-13 are the two stable isotopes of carbon, and the ratio of the two is uniform in the atmosphere but differs in the tissues of plants and animals because of slight preferences in various biochemical pathways.
But stable isotope studies demonstrate that the ratios are not identical between the atmosphere and various plant and animal tissues due to the slight isotopic preferences in biochemical pathways.

 PlanetMath: stable manifold
This is why they are commonly called stable and unstable manifolds.
This result is also valid for nonperiodic points, as long as they lie in some hyperbolic set (stable manifold theorem for hyperbolic sets).
This is version 7 of stable manifold, born on 2003-06-13, modified 2003-06-16.

 Stable Fly Biology and Management
The stable fly, Stomoxys calcitrans, is 1/4-inch long with a pale spot behind the head, indistinct stripes on the thorax, and seven dark spots on the abdomen.
The stable fly is similar in size and appearance to both the house fly and the face fly.
Because stable fly populations develop twice as fast as parasite populations, without supplemental releases there is a lag time of several weeks between numbers of flies and numbers of parasites.

 STable - Marine Stabilized Platforms - Home   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
STable is proud to announce the first series of stabilized platforms, which will keep steady despite a ship's movements.
STable is based on the Marine Stabilized Platform technology originally developed by Data Respons for use in heave compensated, 400 tons, cranes for the Northern Seas Offshore Industry.
STable has proven its value through one of the most demanding applications in terms of responsiveness and accuracy: the STable—Billiard, which has been installed on cruise ships and thousands of cruise passengers have had the pleasure to enjoy a steady game of pool.

 Sorting algorithm - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Stability: stable sorting algorithms maintain the relative order of records with equal keys (i.e.
That is, a sorting algorithm is stable if whenever there are two records R and S with the same key and with R appearing before S in the original list, R will appear before S in the sorted list.
One way of doing this is to artificially extend the key comparison, so that comparisons between two objects with otherwise equal keys are decided using the order of the entries in the original data order as a tie-breaker.

 LGL - Stable Storage
A stable storage unit can be seen as an ideal storage medium that, given a set of failure assumptions, protects user data from corruption or loss.
However, the user of a stable storage unit has to design the application in such a way that, after recovering from a crash failure, it can deal with the system either in the old or in the new state without knowing which one holds.
Finally, the mirrored storage and the replicated storage are subclasses of the stable storage class.

 Elizabeth's Stable   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)

 Stable Peace
"Stable peace is a developmental process, not merely the absence of visible violence."[6] Within a relatively short time after World War I, even before the establishment of the Common Market, Western Europe could already be called a stable peace system.
Kenneth Boulding introduced the concept of "stable peace" which is the situation when two parties do not even consider war to be an option, no matter what conflict occurs between them.
Boulding foresaw the region of stable peace to be expanding, predicting that it would eventually cover much of the globe.

 Got Stable?
A stable release, as far as I can tell, means that you used it extensively and it did not break on you, and that all the features that you wanted to put it in on the development branch are already implemented in it.
In practice, a project is "stable" when the person or persons in charge of labelling it decide to label it "stable".
When you're talking about the stability of a project (or of a branch) you are saying that it isn't going to change much, except for bug fixes and minor incremental improvements.

The system has allowed for continued evolution and new features in the 2.6 stable kernel, however it has also lead to a fair amount of discussion and debate [story].
Especially since the development changes (2.6.3/4 with the devfs change), I've seen 2.6 change for something which was relatively stable and recommendable, to something which I wonder will allow my machine to reboot on the next macro version upgrade.

 John Nolan's Stable Distribution Page
It describes one dimensional stable distributions in a non-technical way, explaining the two main parameterizations of stable laws.

Also includes stable random number generation and maximum likelihood estimation of stable parameters using a fast 3-dimensional cubic spline interpolation of stable densities.

A {\it stable object} is an object whose state is stored on the disk or other medium whence its state can be recovered if a program crashes.
The initialization method for a stable object will reset it to the stable state, if the stable state is present; otherwise the method creates and initializes the stable state.
The stability of an object and modifications to its state are orthogonal.
