Abstract: We study the first eigenvalue of the Jacobi operator on closed hypersurfaces with constant mean curvature in non-flat Riemannian space forms. Under an appropriate constraint on the totally umbilical tensor of the hypersurfaces and following Meléndez's ideas in J. Meléndez (2014) we obtain a new sharp upper bound of the first eigenvalue of the Jacobi operator.
