The Zeta Function of the Laplacian on Certain Fractals Academic Article uri icon


  • We prove that the zeta-function $\zeta_\Delta$ of the Laplacian $\Delta$ on a self-similar fractals with spectral decimation admits a meromorphic continuation to the whole complex plane. We characterise the poles, compute their residues, and give expressions for some special values of the zeta-function. Furthermore, we discuss the presence of oscillations in the eigenvalue counting function.
