Abstract Davies’ version of the Hardy inequality gives a lower bound for the Dirichlet integral of a function vanishing on the boundary of a domain in terms of the integral of the squared function with a weight containing the averaged distance to the boundary. This inequality is applied to easily derive two classical results of spectral theory, E. Lieb’s inequality for the first eigenvalue of the Dirichlet Laplacian and G. Rozenblum’s estimate for the spectral counting function of the Laplacian… 


This paper is devoted to the investigation of the spectrum of a polyharmonic operator in unbounded domains. The class of domains for which the spectrum of the corresponding first boundary value
Hardy-Sobolev-Maz'ya inequalities for arbitrary domains
We prove a Hardy-Sobolev-Maz’ya inequality for arbitrary domains Ω ⊂ R^N with a constant depending only on the dimension N ≥ 3. In particular, for convex domains this settles a conjecture by

Abstract We prove a two-term Weyl-type asymptotic formula for sums of eigenvalues of the Dirichlet Laplacian in a bounded open set with Lipschitz boundary. Moreover, in the case of a convex domain we
On the lowest eigenvalue of the Laplacian for the intersection of two domains
AbstractIfA andB are two bounded domains in ℝn and λ(A), λ(B) are the lowest eigenvalues of −Δ with Dirichlet boundary conditions then there is some translate,Bx, ofB such that λ(A∩Bx)<λ(A)+λ(B). A
Can One See the Fundamental Frequency of a Drum?
AbstractWe establish two-sided estimates for the fundamental frequency (the lowest eigenvalue) of the Laplacian in an open set $$\Omega \subset \mathbb{R}^n$$ with the Dirichlet boundary condition.

Asymptotic shape optimization for Riesz means of the Dirichlet Laplacian over convex domains
For $\Omega \subset \mathbb{R}^n$, a convex and bounded domain, we study the spectrum of $-\Delta_\Omega$ the Dirichlet Laplacian on $\Omega$. For $\Lambda\geq0$ and $\gamma \geq 0$ let
