Extremum problems of Laplacian eigenvalues and generalized Polya conjecture

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this survey on extremum problems of Laplacian-Dirichlet eigenvalues of Euclidian domains, the author briefly presents some relevant classical results and recent progress. The main goal is to describe the well-known conjecture due to Polya, its connections to Weyl’s asymptotic formula for eigenvalues and shape optimizations. Many related open problems and some preliminary results are also discussed.
