A new proof of the bound for the first Dirichlet eigenvalue of the Laplacian operator

Open access


In this paper, we present a new proof of the upper and lower bound estimates for the first Dirichlet eigenvalue λ1D(B(p,r)) of Laplacian operator for the manifold with Ricci curvature Rc−K, by using Li-Yau’s gradient estimate for the heat equation.
