Conformal spectral stability estimates for the Dirichlet Laplacian Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • We study the eigenvalue problem for the Dirichlet Laplacian in bounded simply connected plane domains inline image by reducing it, using conformal transformations, to the weighted eigenvalue problem for the Dirichlet Laplacian in the unit disc inline image. This allows us to estimate the variation of the eigenvalues of the Dirichlet Laplacian upon domain perturbation via energy type integrals for a large class of “conformal regular” domains which includes all quasidiscs, i.e. images of the unit disc under quasiconformal homeomorphisms of the plane onto itself. Boundaries of such domains can have any Hausdorff dimension between one and two.
