  author={Pavel Kurasov and Gabriela Malenova and Sergey N. Naboko},
The spectral gap for Laplace operators on metric graphs is investigated in relation to graph’s connectivity, in particular what happens if an edge is added to (or deleted from) a graph. It is shown that in contrast to discrete graphs connection between the connectivity and the spectral gap is not one-to-one. The size of the spectral gap depends not only on the topology of the metric graph but on its geometric properties as well. It is shown that adding sufficiently large edges as well as… CONTINUE READING
