Abstract: We study pencils of hyperbolic polynomials of the form , where is a real homogeneous polynomials of degree resolved with respect to the highest power of and ; the numbers are positive. In the first part of the paper we find necessary and close to sufficient conditions of stability of the polynomial (i.e., the condition that its roots lie in the open upper half-plane of the complex plane). This problem is closely related to the problem on uniform (with respect to a small parameter) estimates for the solution of the Cauchy problem for hyperbolic equations with a small parameter. The latter problem (both for constant and variable coefficients) is the topic of the second part of the paper.
