We will investigate the stability of finite cylinders under the weighted volume preserving curvature flows. By considering the flow as a PDE on a height function, we are able to use semigroup methods and center manifold analysis to prove the stability of cylinders with large radius. Related results concerning the stability of spheres and, in the case of volume preserving mean curvature flow, unduloids will also be presented.
