The study of the stability of flows is one of the cornerstones of Fluid Mechanics: the subject is so large that it would deserve a whole book to be reviewed. Leaving aside such an ambitious goal, we shall concentrate, in this chapter and the following one, on the fundamentals, although, here and there, making some excursions in more specialized topics.
