We consider a family of domains (ON)N>0 obtained by attaching an N × 1 rectangle to a fixed set O0 = {(x,y) : 0 < y < 1, - ?(y) < x < 0}, for a Lipschitz function ? = 0. We derive full asymptotic expansions, as N ?8, for the m-th Dirichlet eigenvalue (for any fixed m in N) and for the associated eigenfunction on ON. The second term involves a scattering phase arising in the Dirichlet problem on the infinite domain O8. We determine the first variation of this scattering phase, with respect to…

Spectra of graph neighborhoods and scattering

Let (Gε)ε>0 be a family of ‘ε‐thin’ Riemannian manifolds modeled on a finite metric graph G, for example, the ε‐neighborhood of an embedding of G in some Euclidean space with straight edges. We study

Nodal Set Openings on Perturbed Rectangular Domains

. We study the effects of perturbing the boundary of a rectangle on the nodal sets of eigenfunctions of the Laplacian. Namely, for a rectangle of a given aspect ratio N , we identify the first

Nodal line estimates for the second Dirichlet eigenfunction

We study the nodal curves of low energy Dirichlet eigenfunctions in generalized curvilinear quadrilaterals. The techniques can be seen as a generalization of the tools developed by Grieser-Jerison in

Convergence of Dirichlet Eigenvalues for Elliptic Systems on Perturbed Domains

We consider the eigenvalues of an elliptic operator for systems with bounded, measurable, and symmetric coefficients. We assume we have two non-empty, open, disjoint, and bounded sets and add a set

Eigenvalues of Elliptic Systems for the Mixed Problem in Perturbations of Lipschitz Domains with Nonhomogeneous Neumann Boundary Conditions

We study eigenvalues of an elliptic operator with mixed boundary conditions on very general decompositions of the boundary. We impose nonhomogeneous conditions on the part of the boundary where the

Manifolds with cylindrical ends having a finite and positive number of embedded eigenvalues

We construct a surface with a cylindrical end which has a finite number of Laplace eigenvalues embedded in its continuous spectrum. The surface is obtained by attaching a cylindrical end to a

The Fundamental Gap and One-Dimensional Collapse

The fundamental gap of a bounded, connected domain in Rn is the difference between the first two (positive) eigenvalues of the Euclidean Laplacian with Dirichlet boundary condition. The one

Scales, blow-up and quasimode constructions

In this expository article we show how the concepts of manifolds with corners, blow-ups and resolutions can be used effectively for the construction of quasimodes, i.e. approximate eigenfunctions of

Abstract Let M be a planar embedded graph whose arcs meet transversally at the vertices. Let ?(ɛ) be a strip-shaped domain around M, of width ɛ except in a neighborhood of the singular points. Assume

The main goal of this paper is to prove that the first nodal line for the Dirichlet problem in a convex planar domain has diameter less than an absolute constant times the inradius of the domain.

The size of the first eigenfunction of a convex planar domain

The goal of this paper is to estimate the size of the first eigenfunction u uniformly for all convex domains. In particular, we will locate the place where u achieves its maximum to within a distance

Scattering Theory and Adiabatic Decomposition of the $\z$-determinant of the Dirac Laplacian

In this note we announce the adiabatic decomposition formula for the ζ-determinant of the Dirac Laplacian. Theorem 1.1 of this paper extends the re- sult of our earlier work (see (8) and (9)), which

Abstract Let M be a finite graph in the plane and let Me be a domain that looks like the e-fattened graph M (exact conditions on the domain are given). It is shown that the spectrum of the Neumann

A thin tube is an $n$-dimensional space which is very thin in $n-1$ directions, compared to the remaining direction, for example the $\epsilon$-neighborhood of a curve or an embedded graph in $\R^n$
