This paper is a survey on classical results and open questions about minimization problems concerning the lower eigenvalues of the Laplace operator. After recalling classical isoperimetric inequalities for the two first eigenvalues, we present recent advances on this topic. In particular, we study the minimization of the second eigenvalue among plane convex domains. We also discuss the minimization of the third eigenvalue. We prove existence of a minimizer. For others eigenvalues, we just give some conjectures. We also consider the case of Neumann, Robin and Stekloff boundary conditions together with various functions of the eigenvalues. AMS classification: 49Q10, 35P15, 49J20.

C. Yang’s inequality. Short title: Isoperimetric and Universal Inequalities This paper reviews many of the known inequalities for the eigenvalues of the Laplacian and biLaplacian on bounded domains in Euclidean space. In particular, we focus on isoperimetric inequalities for the low eigenvalues of the Dirichlet and Neumann Laplacians and of the vibrating clamped plate problem (i.e., the biharmonic operator with “Dirichlet ” boundary conditions). We also discuss the known universal inequalities for the eigenvalues of the Dirichlet Laplacian and the vibrating clamped plate and buckling problems and go on to

We consider Laplace operators and Schrödinger operators with potentials containing curvature on certain regions of nontrivial topology, especially closed curves, annular domains, and shells. Dirichlet boundary conditions are imposed on any boundaries. Under suitable assumptions we prove that the fundamental eigenvalue is maximized when the geometry is round. We also comment on the use of coordinate transformations for these operators and mention some open problems.

In this paper we describe several theorems that give lower bounds on the second eigenvalue of any quotient of a given size of a fixed graph, G. These theorems generalize AlonBoppana type theorems, where G is a regular (infinite) tree. When G is a hypercube, our theorems give minimum distance upper bounds on linear binary codes of a given size and information rate. Our bounds at best equal the current best bounds for codes, and only apply to linear codes. However, it is of interest to note that (1) one very simple AlonBoppana argument yields nontrivial code bound, and (2) our AlonBoppana argument that equals a current best bound for codes has some hope of improvement. We also improve the bound in sharpest known AlonBoppana theorem (i.e., when G is a regular tree). 1

For any bounded regular domain Ω of a real analytic Riemannian manifold M, we denote by λk(Ω) the kth eigenvalue of the Dirichlet Laplacian of Ω. In this paper, we consider λk and as a functional upon the set of domains of fixed volume in M. We introduce and investigate a natural notion of critical domain for this functional. In particular, we obtain necessary and sufficient conditions for a domain to be critical, locally minimizing or locally maximizing for λk. These results rely on Hadamard type variational formulae that we establish in this general setting. As an application, we obtain a characterization of critical domains of the trace of the heat kernel under Dirichlet boundary conditions.
