The results, that obtained by the spectral method with use of integral relations for the problem of linear stability of steady-state shear plane-parallel flows of an inviscid stratified incompressible fluid in the gravity field with respect to plane perturbations in the Boussinesq approximation and without it, are specified, complemented and developed by the most powerful analytical method of the modern mathematical theory of hydrodynamic stability-the second (or direct) Lyapunov method. In both case, the new analytical method made it possible to prove that given steady-state flows of stratified fluid are absolutely unstable in theoretical sense with respect to small plane perturbations and to obtain the sufficient conditions for practical linear instability of considered flows. The illustrative analytical examples of given steady-state flows and small plane perturbations as normal waves imposed on them are constructed. Using the asymptotic method, it is proved that constructed perturbations grow in time irrespective of the fact whether the Miles-Howard and the Miles-type theorems are valid or not.
