Comparison of potential theoretic properties of rough domains
We discuss the relationships between the notion of intrinsic ultracontractivity, parabolic Harnack principle, compactness of the 1-resolvent of the Neumann Laplacian, and non-trap property for Euclidean domains with finite Lebesgue measure. In particular, we give an answer to an open problem raised by Davies and Simon in 1984 ...
On the "hot spots" conjecture of J. Rauch
(Academic Press (Elsevier), 1999-05-10)
We will state several rigorous versions of J. Rauch's "hot spots" conjecture, review some known results, and prove the conjecture under some additional assumptions. Let us, however, first observe that the conclusion cannot hold for all initial conditions.
On the Robin problem in fractal domains
We study the solution to the Robin boundary problem for the Laplacian in a Euclidean domain. We present some families of fractal domains where the infimum is greater than 0, and some other families of domains where it is equal to 0. We also give a new result on "trap domains" defined in [BCM], i.e., domains where reflecting ...
Neumann eigenfunctions and Brownian couplings
(Mathematical Society of Japan, 2004)
This is a review of research on geometric properties of Neumann eigenfunctions related to the "hot spots" conjecture of Jeff Rauch. The paper also presents, in an informal way, some probabilistic techniques used in the proofs.
