Nodal Set Openings on Perturbed Rectangular Domains

  title={Nodal Set Openings on Perturbed Rectangular Domains},
  author={Thomas Beck and Marichi Gupta and Jeremy Louis Marzuola},
. 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 Dirichlet mode to feature a crossing in its nodal set and perturb one of the sides of the rectangle by a close to flat, smooth curve. Such perturbations will often “open” the crossing in the nodal set, splitting it into two curves, and we study the separation between these curves and their regularity. The…

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

Location of the nodal set for thin curved tubes

The Dirichlet Laplacian in curved tubes of arbitrary constant cross-section rotating together with the Tang frame along a bounded curve in Euclidean spaces of arbitrary dimension is investigated in

Asymptotics of eigenfunctions on plane domains

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

On nodal domains in Euclidean balls

A. Pleijel (1956) has proved that in the case of the Laplacian with Dirichlet condition, the equality in the Courant nodal theorem (Courant sharp situation) can only be true for a finite number of

Nodal sets of Laplace eigenfunctions under small perturbations

We study the stability properties of nodal sets of Laplace eigenfunctions on compact manifolds under specific small perturbations. We prove that nodal sets are fairly stable if such perturbations are

Courant-sharp property for Dirichlet eigenfunctions on the Möbius strip

The question of determining for which eigenvalues there exists an eigenfunction which has the same number of nodal domains as the label of the associated eigenvalue (Courant-sharp property) was

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

On the spectrum of the Dirichlet Laplacian in a narrow strip

We consider the Dirichlet Laplacian Δ∈ in a family of bounded domains {−a < x < b, 0 < y < εh(x)}. The main assumption is that x = 0 is the only point of global maximum of the positive, continuous

Nodal geometry and topology of low energy eigenfunctions

We investigate various aspects of the nodal geometry and topology of Laplace eigenfunctions on compact Riemannian manifolds and bounded Euclidean domains, with particular emphasis on the low
