In this paper we apply estimates of the norms of Sobolev extension operators to the spectral estimates of of the first nontrivial Neumann eigenvalue of the Laplace operator in non-convex extension domains. As a consequence we obtain a connection between resonant frequencies of free membranes and the smallest-circle problem (initially proposed by J.~J.~Sylvester in 1857).

Principal frequencies of free non-homogeneous membranes and Sobolev extension operators

Using the quasiconformal mappings theory and Sobolev extension operators, we obtain estimates of principal frequencies of free non-homogeneous membranes. The suggested approach is based on



Universal bounds for the low eigenvalues of Neumann Laplacians in N dimensions

The authors consider bounds on the Neumann eigenvalues of the Laplacian on domains in $I\mathbb{R}^n $ in the light of their recent results on Dirichlet eigenvalues, in particular, their proof of t...

Spectral estimates of the p-Laplace Neumann operator and Brennan’s conjecture

In this paper we obtain lower estimates for the first non-trivial eigenvalue of the p-Laplace Neumann operator in bounded simply connected planar domains $$\varOmega \subset {\mathbb {R}}^2$$Ω⊂R2.

Geometrical Structure of Laplacian Eigenfunctions

The main focus is put onto multiple intricate relations between the shape of a domain and the geometrical structure of eigenfunctions of the Laplace operator in bounded Euclidean domains with Dirichlet, Neumann or Robin boundary condition.

On the First Eigenvalues of Free Vibrating Membranes in Conformal Regular Domains

AbstractIn 1961 G. Polya published a paper about the eigenvalues of vibrating membranes. The “free vibrating membrane” corresponds to the Neumann–Laplace operator in bounded plane domains. In this

Integral estimates of conformal derivatives and spectral properties of the Neumann-Laplacian

On some isoperimetric inequalities involving eigenvalues of symmetric free membranes

This paper deals with the eigenvalues of the Neumann Laplacian on simply‐connected Lipschitz planar domains with some rotational symmetry. Our aim is to continue the investigations from Enache and

Measure density and extendability of Sobolev functions

We study necessary and sufficient conditions for a domain to be a Sobolev extension domain in the setting of metric measure spaces. In particular, we prove that extension domains must satisfy a

Spectral Theory and Differential Operators

This book gives an account of those parts of the analysis of closed linear operators acting in Banach or Hilbert spaces that are relevant to spectral problems involving differential operators, and
