• We prove the existence of nontrivial compact extremal domains for the first eigenvalue of the Laplacian in manifolds $${\mathbb{R}^{n}\times \mathbb{R}{/}T\, \mathbb{Z}}$$ with flat metric, for some T > 0. These domains are close to the cylinder-type domain $${B_1 \times \mathbb{R}{/}T\, \mathbb{Z}}$$, where B1 is the unit ball in $${\mathbb{R}^{n}}$$, they are invariant by rotation with respect to the vertical axe, and are not invariant by vertical translations. Such domains can be extended by… CONTINUE READING
