The geometric stability of a cylindrical particle undergoing radial growth in a supersaturated solution is studied by employing the time-dependent diffusion equations. In this paper, the perturbation technique is used to investigate the stability of shape. The perturbations in 0and z-directions are both considered. The stability region for considering perturbation in z-direction is a special case of that for considering perturbation in 0-and^-directions. It was found that the stability boundary
