Spectral estimates of the p-Laplace Neumann operator and Brennan’s conjecture Academic Article uri icon


  • In this paper we obtain lower estimates for the first non-trivial eigenvalue of the p-Laplace Neumann operator in bounded simply connected planar domains \(\varOmega \subset {\mathbb {R}}^2\). This study is based on a quasiconformal version of the universal two-weight Poincaré–Sobolev inequalities obtained in our previous papers for conformal weights and its non weighted version for so-called K-quasiconformal \(\alpha \)-regular domains. The main technical tool is the geometric theory of composition operators in relation with the Brennan’s conjecture for (quasi)conformal mappings.
