On Neumann eigenfunctions in lip domains
(American Mathematical Society, 2004)
A "lip domain" is a planar set lying between graphs of two Lipschitz functions with constant 1. We show that the second Neumann eigenvalue is simple in every lip domain except the square. The corresponding eigenfunction attains its maximum and minimum at the boundary points at the extreme left and right. This settles the ...
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.
