The nonlinear Schrodinger equation is the basis of the traditional stability analysis of nonstationary guided waves in a nonlinear three-layer slab structure. The stationary (independent of the propagation distance) solutions of the nonlinear Schrodinger equation are used as ``initial data'' in this analysis. In the present paper, we propose a method to investigate the dependence of these solutions on the experimental parameters and discuss their stability with respect to the parameters. The method is based on the phase diagram condition (PDC) and compact representation (in terms of Weierstrass' elliptic function and its derivative) of the dispersion relation (DR). The problem's parameters are constrained to certain regions in parameter space by the PDC. Dispersion curves inside (or at boundaries) of these regions correspond to possible physical solutions of Maxwell's equations as ``start'' solutions for a traditional stability analysis. Numerical evaluations of the PDC, DR, and power flow including their parameter dependence are presented.
