### Abstract

In the first (and abstract) part of this survey we prove the unitary equivalence of the inverse of the Krein–von Neumann extension (on the orthogonal complement of its kernel) of a densely defined, closed, strictly positive operator, S ≥ εIH for some ε> 0 in a Hilbert space H to an abstract buckling problem operator. In the concrete case where S = −∆ | C ∞ 0 (Ω) in L 2 (Ω;d n x) for Ω ⊂ R n an open, bounded (and sufficiently regular) domain, this recovers, as a particular case of a general result due to G. Grubb, that the eigenvalue problem for the Krein Laplacian SK (i.e., the Krein–von Neumann extension of S), SKv = λv, λ ̸ = 0, is in one-to-one correspondence with the problem of the buckling of a clamped plate, where u and v are related via the pair of formulas (−∆) 2 u = λ(−∆)u in Ω, λ ̸ = 0, u ∈ H 2 0(Ω), u = S −1 F (−∆)v, v = λ−1 (−∆)u,
