346 ON THE STABILITY OF THE SIMPLE SHEARING.
Since (5) is a differential-equation of the second order, its sol connected in a well-known manner. Thus

A similar relation holds for any two particular solutions. For t
The difficulty of the stability problem lies in the treatment of the condition
in which %, 7/l5 and X are arbitrary, except that we may suppose rt be positive, and ^ negative. In (31) we may replace e^, e~A7?b sinh X?? respectively, and the substitution is especially useful when of integration are such that 7/1 = — ^2. . For in this case
