Keywords: Hydrodynamics Phase velocity Instability region


We study incompressible, inviscid, density stratified fluid with variable cross section in this present paper. For this problem, we have obtained a bound for the complex part of phase velocity. Furthermore, we have obtained an instability region which depends on number of parameters.
