 This book presents the theory of the linearization method as applied to the problem of steadystate and periodic motions of continuous media. The author proves infinitedimensional analogues of Lyapunov's theorems on stability, instability, and conditional stability for a large class of continuous media. In addition, semigroup properties for the linearized NavierStokes equations in the case of an incompressible fluid are studied, and coercivity inequalities and completeness of a system of small oscillations are proved.
