Abstract. We develop eigenvalue estimates for the Laplacians on discrete and metric graphs using different types of boundary conditions at the vertices of the metric graph. Via an explicit correspondence of the equilateral metric and discrete graph spectrum (also in the “exceptional” values of the metric graph corresponding to the Dirichlet spectrum) we carry over these estimates from the metric graph Laplacian to the discrete case. We apply the results to covering graphs and present examples where the covering graph Laplacians have spectral gaps. 1.
EQUILATERAL QUANTUM GRAPHS AND BOUNDARY TRIPLES
"... Abstract. The aim of the present paper is to analyse the spectrum of Laplace and Dirac type operators on metric graphs. In particular, we show for equilateral graphs how the spectrum (up to exceptional eigenvalues) can be described by a natural generalisation of the discrete Laplace operator on the ..."

Abstract. The aim of the present paper is to analyse the spectrum of Laplace and Dirac type operators on metric graphs. In particular, we show for equilateral graphs how the spectrum (up to exceptional eigenvalues) can be described by a natural generalisation of the discrete Laplace operator on the underlying graph. These generalised Laplacians are necessary in order to cover general vertex conditions on the metric graph. In case of the standard (also named “Kirchhoff”) conditions, the discrete operator is the usual combinatorial Laplacian. 1.
GENERALISED DISCRETE LAPLACIANS ON GRAPHS AND THEIR RELATION TO QUANTUM GRAPHS
"... Abstract. The aim of the present paper is to analyse the spectrum of Laplace operators on graphs. Motivated by the general form of vertex conditions of a Laplacian on a metric graph, we define a new type of combinatorial Laplacian. With this generalised discrete Laplacian, it is possible to relate t ..."

Abstract. The aim of the present paper is to analyse the spectrum of Laplace operators on graphs. Motivated by the general form of vertex conditions of a Laplacian on a metric graph, we define a new type of combinatorial Laplacian. With this generalised discrete Laplacian, it is possible to relate the spectral theory on discrete and metric graphs using the theory of boundary triples. In particular, we derive a spectral relation for equilateral metric graphs and index formulas. Moreover, we introduce extended metric graphs occuring naturally as limits of “thick ” graphs, and provide spectral analysis of natural Laplacians on such spaces. 1.
