Beschreibung

This EMS volume contains a survey of the principles and advanced techniques of the spectral theory of linear differential and pseudodifferential operators in finite-dimensional spaces. The basic notions and theorems are first reviewed and followed by a comprehensive presentation of a variety of advanced approaches such as the factorization method, the variational techniques, the approximate spectral projection method, and the probabilistic method, to name a few. Special attention is devoted to the spectral properties of Schrödinger and Dirac operators and of other operators as well. In addition, a special section of Sunada's recent solution of Kac's celebrated problem of whether or not "one can hear the shape of a drum" is included.

When the vibrations of astring are considered, there arises a simple eigenvalue problem for a differential opera tor. In the case of a homogeneous string it suffices to use the classical theory 6 Preface of Fourier series.
