Abstract. The article is devoted to numerical investigation of stability for equilibrium surfaces. These surfaces are models for surfaces between two media. Moreover, these surfaces are extremal surfaces for the functional of the follwing type

W(M) =A(M) + G(M),

where A(M) =M∫︁α(x)dM, G(M)=Ω1∫︁φ(x)dx and domains Ω ⊂ Rn+1, Ω1 ⊂ Ω such that ∂Ω1 ∩ ∂Ω =M. The problem of study a stability of equilibrium surfaces is reduced to investigate the value of kind

 

inf(M∫|h|2dM)/(M∫||A||2h2dM)


where ||A|| is norm of second fudamental form for surfaceM⊂ Rn, and gradient ∇ℎ is calculated in Riemann metric of M. Using piecewise linear interpolation this value can be approximated by the value

minh <Ah,h>/<Bh,h>

where A,B are symmetric positive definite matrixes. The article describes Python package NDimVar implemented on the basis package NumPy for solution of the above pointed problem. In addition, the study of stability for minimal surface of catenoid

x1=cosh(t/a) cosφ,

x2=cosh(t/a) sinφ,

x3=t,t<|T|

 

is considered. It is calculated maximal value of T under which catenoid is stable minimal surface.

Key words: extremal surface, triangulation, piecewise linear approximation,

main frequency, package NumPy.
