In a recent work Sideris constructed a finite-parameter family of compactly supported affine solutions to the free boundary compressible Euler equations satisfying the physical vacuum condition. The support of these solutions expands at a linear rate in time. We show that if the adiabatic exponent gamma belongs to the interval(1, 5/3] then these affine motions are globally-in-time nonlinearly stable. If time permits we shall also discuss several classes of global solutions to the compressible Euler-Poisson system. This is a joint work with Juhi Jang.
