**Title**: Stability in Abelian Categories

**Abstract**: We will give an elementary introduction
into the the notion of stability in abelian categories.
Examples include the categories of vector bundles and
quiver representations. We'll try to explain why
stability plays an important role in algebraic geometry,
representation theory, and now in string theory.
