Inverse problems in spectral geometry

In this survey we review positive inverse spectral and inverse resonant results for the following kinds of problems: Laplacians on bounded domains, Laplace-Beltrami operators on compact manifolds,

Spectral uniqueness of radial semiclassical Schrodinger operators

We prove that the spectrum of an n-dimensional semiclassical radial Schr\"odinger operator determines the potential within a large class of potentials for which we assume no symmetry or analyticity.

Critical Partitions and Nodal Deficiency of Billiard Eigenfunctions

The paper addresses the nodal count (i.e., the number of nodal domains) for eigenfunctions of Schrödinger operators with Dirichlet boundary conditions in bounded domains. The classical Sturm theorem

Spectral determination of analytic bi-axisymmetric plane domains

Abstract. Let {\cal D}L denote the class of bounded, simply connected real analytic plane domains with re ection symmetries across two orthogonal axes, of which one has length L. Under generic

Quantum Ergodic Restriction Theorems: Manifolds Without Boundary

We prove that if (M, g) is a compact Riemannian manifold with ergodic geodesic flow, and if $${H \subset M}$$ is a smooth hypersurface satisfying a generic microlocal asymmetry condition, then

The spectrum of positive elliptic operators and periodic bicharacteristics

Let X be a compact boundaryless C ∞ manifold and let P be a positive elliptic self-adjoint pseudodifferential operator of order m>0 on X. For technical reasons we will assume that P operates on

Symplectic invariants of elliptic fixed points

Abstract. To the germ of an area—preserving diffeomorphism at an elliptic fixed point, we associate the germ of Mather's minimal action. This yields a strictly convex function which is symplectically

Inverse spectral problem for analytic $(Z/2Z)^n$-symmetric domains in $R^n$

We prove that bounded real analytic domains in R n , with the symmetries of an ellipsoid and with one axis length fixed, are determined by their Dirichlet or Neumann eigenvalues among other bounded

Aubry-mather theory and the inverse spectral problem for planar convex domains

The inverse spectral problem is concerned with the question to what extent the spectrum of a domain determines its geometry. We find that, associated to a convex domain Ω in ℝ2, there is a

Invariants of Isospectral Deformations and Spectral Rigidity

We introduce a notion of weak isospectrality for continuous deformations. Consider the Laplace–Beltrami operator on a compact Riemannian manifold with Robin boundary conditions. Given a Kronecker
