Note added after submission: After completing this work, the author got acquainted with the following paper: Casten, R. G., and Holland, C. J., Instability results for reac tion diffusion equations with Neumann boundary conditions, J. Differential Equations 27 (1978), 266-273. It contains the same results as in our Theorem 5.1. Further it is shown that any nonconstant solution of (1. 3) is unstable if f(u) is convex or concave. But the problem of finding / and D with which there exists a nonconstant stable solution of (1. 3) is still unsolved there, the answer to which can be found in our Theorem 6. 2 and Corol- lary 6. 3.
