• On two functionals connected to the Laplacian in a class of doubly connected domains in space-forms

LetB1 be a ball of radiusr1 inSn (ℍn), and letB0 be a smaller ball of radiusr0 such thatB0B1. ForSn we considerr1π. Let u be a solution of the problem- δm = 1 in Ω :=B1 /B0 vanishing on the boundary. It is shown that the associated functionalJ (Ω) is minimal if and only if the balls are concentric. It is also shown that the first Dirichlet eigenvalue of the Laplacian on Ω is maximal if and only if the balls are concentric.

• On the Extrema of Dirichlet's First Eigenvalue of a Family of Punctured Regular Polygons in Two Dimensional Space Forms

Let $\wp 1,\wp 0$ be two regular polygons of 𝑛 sides in a space form $M^2(\kappa)$ of constant curvature $\kappa=0,1$ or $-1$ such that $\wp 0\subset\wp 1$ and having the same center of mass. Suppose $\wp 0$ is circumscribed by a circle 𝐶 contained in $\wp 1$. We fix $\wp 1$ and vary $\wp 0$ by rotating it in 𝐶 about its center of mass. Put $\Omega =(\wp 1\backslash\wp 0)^0$, the interior of $\wp 1\backslash\wp 0$ in $M^2(\kappa)$. It is shown that the first Dirichlet’s eigenvalue $\lambda 1(\Omega)$ attains extremum when the axes of symmetry of $\wp 0$ coincide with those of $\wp 1$.
