Abstract: We characterize stability of graph -algebras by giving five conditions equivalent to their stability. We also show that if is a graph with no sources, then is stable if and only if each vertex in can be reached by an infinite number of vertices. We use this characterization to realize the stabilization of a graph -algebra. Specifically, if is a graph and is the graph formed by adding a head to each vertex of , then is the stabilization of ; that is, .
