(b-e) Case c is convex in P and therefore unstable.
Case b,d and e are nominally stable, but we must still check the “
fluting condition”(8.6).
We can do this directly or alternatively we can “
rotate coordinates”(i.e., make a Legendre
transformation) and again check only primary curvatures.

For case (b), we easily find U  , which is concave in S,V and N.
4 SV 3
So it is unstable.

For case (d), we easily find U  , which is convex in all three variables.
