PaynePólyaWeinberger conjecture, Sperner’s inequality, biharmonic operator, biLaplacian, clamped plate problem, Rayleigh’s conjecture, buckling problem, the PólyaSzegő conjecture, universal inequalities for eigenvalues, HileProtter inequality, H. 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

Optimal pointwise estimates from above and below are obtained for iterated (poly)harmonic Green functions corresponding to zero Dirichlet boundary conditions. For second order elliptic operators these estimates hold true on bounded C 1;1 domains. For higher order elliptic operators we have to restrict ourselves to the polyharmonic operator on balls. We will also consider applications to noncooperatively coupled elliptic systems and to the lifetime of conditioned Brownian motion. 1

We study spectral properties for HK,Ω, the Krein–von Neumann extension of the perturbed Laplacian − ∆ + V defined on C ∞ 0 (Ω), where V is measurable, bounded and nonnegative, in a bounded open set Ω ⊂ Rn belonging to a class of nonsmooth domains which contains all convex domains, along with all domains of class C1,r, r> 1/2. In particular, in the aforementioned context we establish the Weyl asymptotic formula #{j ∈ N  λK,Ω,j ≤ λ} = (2π) −n vnΩ  λ n/2 + O ` λ (n−(1/2))/2 ´ as λ → ∞, where vn = πn/2 /Γ((n/2)+1) denotes the volume of the unit ball in Rn, and λK,Ω,j, j ∈ N, are the nonzero eigenvalues of HK,Ω, listed in increasing order according to their multiplicities. We prove this formula by showing that the perturbed Krein Laplacian (i.e., the Krein–von Neumann extension of − ∆ + V defined on C ∞ 0 (Ω)) is spectrally equivalent to the buckling of a clamped plate problem, and using an abstract result of Kozlov from the mid 1980’s. Our work builds on that of Grubb in the early 1980’s, who has considered similar issues for elliptic operators in smooth domains, and shows that the question posed by Alonso and Simon in 1980 pertaining to the validity of the above Weyl asymptotic formula continues to have an affirmative answer in this nonsmooth setting. We also study certain exteriortype domains Ω = Rn \K, n ≥ 3, with K ⊂ Rn compact and vanishing

In this paper we present an efficient, accurate and parallelizable direct method for the solution of the (indefinite) linear algebraic systems that arise in the solution of fourth order partial differential equations (PDEs) using mixed finite element approximations. The method is intended particularly for use when multiple righthand sides occur, and when high accuracy is required in these solutions. The algorithm is described in some detail and its performance is illustrated through the numerical solution of a biharmonic eigenvalue problem where the smallest eigenpair is approximated using inverse iteration after discretization via the CiarletRaviart mixed finite element method.

This paper is concerned with the accurate numerical approximation of the spectral properties of the biharmonic operator on various domains in two dimensions. A number of analytic results concerning the eigenfunctions of this operator are summarized and their implications for numerical approximation are discussed. In particular, the asymptotic behaviour of the first eigenfunction is studied since it is known that this has an unbounded number of oscillations when approaching certain types of corner on domain boundaries. Recent computational results of Bjrstad and Tjstheim [4], using a highly accurate spectral LegendreGalerkin method, have demonstrated that a number of these sign changes may be accurately computed on a square domain provided sufficient care is taken with the numerical method. We demonstrate that similar accuracy is also achieved using an unstructured finite element solver which may be applied to problems on domains with arbitrary geometries. A number of results obtained...

A positive source terms locally ‘bends ’ the solution and hence urges it to increase globally while the zero boundary condition(s)
