## Abstract

Conditions which ensure the nonlinear stability of the Kelvin-Stuart cat's eyes solution for two dimensional ideal flow are given. The solution is periodic in the x direction and is bounded by two streamlines, which contain the separatrix, in the y-direction. The stability conditions are given explicitly in terms of the solution parameters and the domain size. The method is based on a technique originally developed by Arnold [1969].
