We consider the following eigenvalue optimization problem: Given a bounded domain Ω ⊂ R n and numbers α ≥ 0, A ∈ [0, |Ω|], find a subset D ⊂ Ω of area A for which the first Dirichlet eigenvalue of the operator −∆ + αχD is as small as possible. We prove existence of solutions and investigate their qualitative properties. For example, we show that for some… (More)

Let u be an eigenfunction of the Laplacian on a compact mani-fold with boundary, with Dirichlet or Neumann boundary conditions, and let −λ 2 be the corresponding eigenvalue. We consider the problem of estimating max M u in terms of λ, for large λ, assuming M u 2 = 1. We prove that max M u ≤ C M λ (n−1)/2 , which is optimal for some M. Our proof simplifies… (More)

In this paper, continuing our earlier article [CGIKO], we study qualitative properties of solutions of a certain eigenvalue optimization problem. Especially we focus on the study of the free boundary of our optimal solutions on general domains.
