Stability of cellular systems in Taylor-Couette instability
We have obtained some results about the stability of cellular systems in the Taylor problem, and we have shown some important differences between this problem and that of Rayleigh-Benard. The stability of the stationary cells against transversal phase disturbances is a crucial property of the Taylor-Couette instability. It is directly related to the absence of rotationnal invariance. It should be possible to prove it by using more general arguments.
