Title
Remarks on the thermal stability of black hole accretion disks

Abstract
Theoretical studies on the thermal stability of radiation pressure-supported inner region of black hole accretion disks are briefly reviewed, from classical HD analyses to the most recent numerical MHD simulations, including works performed by Xiamen group. But theories still cannot explain the observational fact that most known black hole binaries do not show thermal instability variability, except only for the well known source GRS1915+105 and recently reported source IGR J17091-3624.
