We establish a method for giving lower bounds for the fundamental tone of elliptic operators in divergence form in terms of the divergence of vector fields. We then apply this method to the Lr operator associated to immersed hypersurfaces with locally bounded (r + 1)-th mean curvature Hr + 1 of the space forms Nn+ 1(c) of constant sectional curvature c. As(More)
The Laplace-Beltrami operator on a Riemannian manifold, its spectral theory and the relations between its first eigenvalue and the geometrical data of the manifold, such as curvatures, diameter, injectivity radius, volume, has been extensively studied in the recent mathematical literature. In the last few years, another operator, called p-Laplacian, arising(More)
