The problem of determining the eigenvalues and eigenvectors for linear operators acting on finite dimensional vector spaces is a problem known to every student of linear algebra. This problem has a wide range of applications and is one of the main tools for dealing with such linear operators. Some of the results concerning these eigenvalues and eigenvectors can be extended to infinite dimensional vector spaces. In this article we will consider the eigenvalue problem for the Laplace operator… CONTINUE READING
