Abstract: It is proved that if the second variation of the energy functional $R$ (see (2.9)) is positive, then the axially symmetric equilibrium figure of a viscous incompressible capillary fluid is stable. The proof is based on the study of a nonstationary free boundary problem for the Navier-Stokes system with initial data close to the rotation regime of the fluid as a rigid body.
