PlanetMath: stable sorting algorithm (186 words)
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 (196 words)
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.
