Abstract
In this paper, the analytical and numerical results of the stability a nalysis of the accretion disk at the inner boundary is presented. Incl uding the effect of finite conductivity in the disk dynamics, a simple calculation considering only the radial perturbation has been carried out. Within local approximation, it is concluded that the disk is sta ble to Kelvin-Helmholtz and resistive electromagnetic modes whereas th e magnetosonic mode can destabilise the disk structure.
