    • Configurational transition in a Fleming-Viot-type model and probabilistic interpretation of Laplacian eigenfunctions 

      Burdzy, Krzysztof; Holyst, Robert; Ingerman, David; March, Peter (Institute of Physics, 1996-06-07)
      We analyze and simulate a two-dimensional Brownian multi-type particle system with death and branching (birth) depending on the position of particles of different types. The system is confined in the two-dimensional box, ...
    • A counterexample to the "hot spots" conjecture 

      Burdzy, Krzysztof; Werner, Wendelin (Princeton University and Institute for Advanced Study, 1999-01)
      We construct a counterexample to the "hot spots" conjecture; there exists a bounded connected planar domain (with two holes) such that the second eigenvalue of the Laplacian in that domain with Neumann boundary conditions ...
    • Eigenvalue expansions for Brownian motion with an application to occupation times 

      Burdzy, Krzysztof; Bass, Richard F. (Institute of Mathematical Statistics, 1996-01-31)
      Let B be a Borel subset of R [to the power of] d with finite volume. We give an eigenvalue expansion for the transition densities of Brownian motion killed on exiting B. Let A [subscript] 1 be the time spent by Brownian ...
