Abstract. On an asymptotically hyperbolic manifold (Xn+1, g), Mazzeo and Melrose have constructed the meromorphic extension of the resolvent R(λ): = (∆g − λ(n − λ)) −1 for the Laplacian. However, there are special points on 1 (n − N) that they did not deal with. We 2 show that the points of n − N are at most some poles of finite multiplicity, and that the same 2 property holds for the points of n+1 − N if and only if the metric is ‘even’. On the other 2 hand, there exist some metrics for which R(λ) has an essential singularity on n+1 − N and 2 these cases are generic. At last, to illustrate them, we give some examples with a sequence of poles of R(λ) approaching an essential singularity.
The Selberg zeta function for convex cocompact Schottky groups
 Comm. Math. Phys
"... Abstract. We give a new upper bound on the Selberg zeta function for a convex cocompact Schottky group acting on H n+1: in strips parallel to the imaginary axis the zeta function is bounded by exp(Cs  δ) where δ is the dimension of the limit set of the group. This bound is more precise than the o ..."

Abstract. We give a new upper bound on the Selberg zeta function for a convex cocompact Schottky group acting on H n+1: in strips parallel to the imaginary axis the zeta function is bounded by exp(Cs  δ) where δ is the dimension of the limit set of the group. This bound is more precise than the optimal global bound exp(Cs  n+1), and it gives new bounds on the number of resonances (scattering poles) of Γ\H n+1. The proof of this result is based on the application of holomorphic L 2techniques to the study of the determinants of the Ruelle transfer operators and on the quasiselfsimilarity of limit sets. We also study this problem numerically and provide evidence that the bound may be optimal. Our motivation comes from molecular dynamics and we consider Γ\H n+1 as the simplest model of quantum chaotic scattering. The proof of this result is based on the application of holomorphic L 2techniques to the study of the determinants of the Ruelle transfer operators and on the quasiselfsimilarity of limit sets. 1.

Abstract. For a class of manifolds X that includes quotients of real hyperbolic (n + 1)dimensional space by a convex cocompact discrete group, we show that the resonances of the meromorphically continued resolvent kernel for the Laplacian on X coincide, with multiplicities, with the poles of the meromorphically continued scattering operator for X. In order to carry out the proof, we use Shmuel Agmon’s perturbation theory of resonances to show that both resolvent resonances and scattering poles are simple for generic potential perturbations. 1.

Résumé. Considèrons un opérateur hpseudodifférentiel, dont le symbole p s’étend holomorphiquement à un voisinage tubulaire de l’espace de phase réel et converge assez vite vers 1, pour que le déterminant soit bien défini. Nous montrons que le logarithme du module du déterminant est majoré par (2πh) −n (I(Λ, p) + o(1)), h → 0, où I(Λ, p) est l’intégrale de log p  sur Λ, pour tout Λ dans une classe de déformations de l’espace de phase réel sur lesquelles la restriction de la forme symplectique est réelle et nondégénerée. Nous montrons que I est une fonction Lipschitzienne de Λ et nous étudions sa différentielle et parfois son hessien. Sous des hypothèses supplémentaires faibles, nous montrons qu’un point critique Λ de la fonctionnelle I est de manière infinitésimale un minimum à l’ordre infini. Abstract. Consider an hpseudodifferential operator, whose symbol p extends holomorphically to a tubular neighborhood of the real phase space and converges sufficiently fast to 1, so that the determinant is welldefined. We show that the logarithm of the modulus of this determinant is bounded by (2πh) −n (I(Λ, p) + o(1)), h → 0, where I(Λ, p) is the integral of log p  over Λ and Λ belongs to a class of deformations of the real phase space on which the restriction of the symplectic form is real and nondegenerate. We show that I is a Lipschitz function of Λ and we study its differential and sometimes

Abstract. On an asymptotically hyperbolic manifold (X, g), we show that the poles (called resonances) of the meromorphic extension of the resolvent (∆g − λ(n − λ)) −1 coincide, with multiplicities, with the poles (called scattering poles) of the renormalized scattering operator, except for the points of n 2 − N. At each λk: = n − k with k ∈ N, the resonance multiplicity 2 m(λk) and the scattering pole multiplicity ν(λk) do not always coincide: ν(λk) − m(λk) is the dimension of the kernel of a differential operator on the boundary ∂ ¯ X introduced by Graham and Zworski; in the asymptotically Einstein case, this operator is the kth conformal Laplacian. 1.

We construct a determinant of the Laplacian for infinitearea surfaces which are hyperbolic near infinity and without cusps. In the case of a convex cocompact hyperbolic metric, the determinant can be related to the Selberg zeta function and thus shown to be an entire function of order two with zeros at the eigenvalues and resonances of the Laplacian. In the hyperbolic near infinity case the determinant is analyzed through the zetaregularized relative determinant for a conformal metric perturbation. We establish that this relative determinant is a ratio of entire functions of order two with divisor corresponding to eigenvalues and resonances of the perturbed and unperturbed metrics. These results are applied to the problem of compactness in the smooth topology for the class of metrics with a given set of eigenvalues and resonances.

Abstract. For convex cocompact hyperbolic quotients Γ\H n+1 we obtain a formula relating the 0trace of the wave operator with the resonances and some conformal invariants of the boundary, generalizing a formula of Guillopé and Zworski in dimension 2. Then, by writing this 0trace with the length spectrum, we prove precise asymptotics of the number of closed geodesics with an effective, exponentially small error term when the dimension of the limit set of Γ is greater than n 2. 1.

We obtain a representation of the derivative of the spectral shift function ( ; h) in the framework of semiclassical "black box" perturbations. Our representation implies a meromorphic continuation of ( ; h) involving the semiclassical resonances. Moreover, we obtain a Weyl type asymptotics of the spectral shift function as well as a BreitWigner approximation in an interval ( ; + ); 0 < < h:

Abstract. For a class of even dimensional asymptotically hyperbolic (AH) manifolds, we develop a generalized BirmanKrein theory to study scattering asymptotics and, when the curvature is constant, to analyze Selberg zeta function. The main objects we construct for an AH manifold (X, g) are, on the first hand, a natural spectral function ξ for the Laplacian ∆g, which replaces the counting function of the eigenvalues in this infinite volume case, and on the other hand the determinant of the scattering operator SX(λ) of ∆g on X. Both need to be defined through regularized functional: renormalized trace on the bulk X and regularized determinant on the conformal infinity ( ∂ ¯ X,[h0]). We show that det SX(λ) is meromorphic in λ, with divisors given by resonance multiplicities and dimensions of kernels of GJMS conformal Laplacians (Pk)k∈N of ( ∂ ¯ X,[h0]), moreover ξ(z) is proved to be the phase of det SX ( n 2 + iz) on the essential spectrum {z ∈ R+}. Applying this theory to convex cocompact quotients X = Γ\Hn+1 of hyperbolic space Hn+1, we obtain the functional equation Z(λ)/Z(n − λ) = (det SHn+1(λ)) χ(X) /det SX(λ) for Selberg zeta function Z(λ) of X, where χ(X) is the Euler characteristic of X. This describes the poles and zeros of Z(λ), computes det Pk in term of Z ( n n − k)/Z ( + k) and implies a sharp Weyl asymptotic for ξ(z). 2 2 1.
