Abstract. For a large class of semiclassical pseudodifferential operators, including Schrödinger operators, P(h) = −h 2 ∆g + V (x), on compact Riemannian manifolds, we give logarithmic lower bounds on the mass of eigenfunctions outside neighbourhoods of generic closed hyperbolic orbits. More precisely we show that if A is a pseudodifferential operator which is microlocally equal to the identity near the hyperbolic orbit and microlocally zero away from the orbit, then ‖u ‖ ≤ C ( √ log(1/h)/h)‖P(h)u ‖ + C √ log(1/h)‖(I − A)u ‖. This generalizes earlier estimates of Colin de VerdièreParisse [CVP] obtained for a special case, and of BurqZworski [BuZw] for real hyperbolic orbits. 1.

We describe methods which have been used to analyze the spectrum of nonselfadjoint differential operators, emphasizing the differences from the selfadjoint theory. We find that even in cases in which the eigenfunctions can be determined explicitly, they often do not form a basis; this is closely related to a high degree of instability of the eigenvalues under small perturbations of the operator.

Eigenfrequencies for damped wave equations on Zoll manifolds

Under the assumption of periodicity of the geodesic flow we study the asymptotic distribution of the eigenfrequencies in the band. We show that the set of eigenfrequencies exhibits a c ..."

The eigenfrequencies associated to a damped wave equation are known to belong to a band parallel to the real axis. Under the assumption of periodicity of the geodesic flow we study the asymptotic distribution of the eigenfrequencies in the band. We show that the set of eigenfrequencies exhibits a cluster structure determined by the Morse index of the closed geodesics and the damping coefficient averaged along the geodesic flow. The asymptotics for the multiplicities of the clusters are also obtained.
Spectral deviations for the damped wave equation

"... Abstract. We prove a Weyltype fractal upper bound for the spectrum of the damped wave equation, on a negatively curved compact manifold. It is known that most of the eigenvalues have an imaginary part close to the average of the damping function. We count the number of eigenvalues in a given horizo ..."

Abstract. We prove a Weyltype fractal upper bound for the spectrum of the damped wave equation, on a negatively curved compact manifold. It is known that most of the eigenvalues have an imaginary part close to the average of the damping function. We count the number of eigenvalues in a given horizontal strip deviating from this typical behaviour; the exponent that appears naturally is the ‘entropy ’ that gives the deviation rate from the Birkhoff ergodic theorem for the geodesic flow. A Weyltype lower bound is still far from reach; but in the particular case of arithmetic surfaces, and for a strong enough damping, we can use the trace formula to prove a result going in this direction.
Perturbations of selfadjoint operators with periodic classical flow

"... We consider nonselfadjoint perturbations of a selfadjoint hpseudodifferential operator in dimension 2. In the present work we treat the case when the classical flow of the unperturbed part is periodic and the strength ǫ of the perturbation satisfies h δ0 < ǫ ≤ ǫ0 for some δ0 ∈]0,1/2 [ and a suffi ..."

We consider nonselfadjoint perturbations of a selfadjoint hpseudodifferential operator in dimension 2. In the present work we treat the case when the classical flow of the unperturbed part is periodic and the strength ǫ of the perturbation satisfies h δ0 < ǫ ≤ ǫ0 for some δ0 ∈]0,1/2 [ and a sufficiently small ǫ0> 0. We get a complete asymptotic description of all eigenvalues in certain rectangles [−1/C,1/C] + iǫ[F0 − 1/C,F0 + 1/C]. In particular we are able to treat the case when ǫ> 0 is small but independent of h.
SPECTRAL THEORY OF DAMPED QUANTUM CHAOTIC SYSTEMS

Abstract. We investigate the spectral distribution of the damped wave equation on a compact Riemannian manifold, especially in the case of a metric of negative curvature, for which the geodesic flow is Anosov (very chaotic). The final objective is to obtain conditions (in terms of the geodesic flow on X, the structure of the damping function) for which the energy of the waves decays exponentially fast, at least for smooth enough initial data. The spectrum of the equation amounts to a nonselfadjoint spectral problem. Using semiclassical methods, we derive estimates and upper bounds for the high frequency spectral distribution, in terms of dynamically defined quantities, like the value distribution of the timeaveraged damping. We also consider the toy model of damped quantized chaotic maps, for which we derive similar estimates, as well as a new upper bound for the spectral radius depending on the set of minimally damped trajectories.
