Abstract: Suppose that and belong to the algebra generated by the rational functions and an entire function of finite order on and that has algebraic polar variety. We show that either or , where is a polynomial and are rational functions. In the latter case, belongs to the algebra generated by the rational functions, and .

The stability property is related to the problem of algebraic dependence of entire functions over the ring of polynomials. The case of algebraic dependence over of two entire or meromorphic functions on is completely resolved in this paper.
