„Small eigenvalues of the Laplacian on surfaces“
Prof. Dr. Werner Ballmann, MPI Bonn und Uni Bonn

Eigenvalues of the Laplacian on hyperbolic surfaces are called small, if they lie below $1/4$, the bottom of the spectrum of the Laplacian on the hyperbolic plane. Buser showed that, for any $\varepsilon>0$, the closed surface $S$ of genus $g\ge2$ carries a hyperbolic metric such that $\lambda_{2g−3}<\varepsilon$, where $ \lambda_0 = 0 < \lambda_1 \le \lambda_2 \le \ldots $ denotes the sequence of eigenvalues of the Laplacian of the metric on $S$. He also showed that $\lambda_{2g−2}\ge c>0$, where c is independent of genus and hyperbolic metric. Buser's results were extended and refined by Schmutz, and he and Schmutz conjectured that $\lambda_{2g−2}\ge1/4$ for any hyperbolic metric on $S$. I will discuss this conjecture, its solution by Otal and Rosas, and recent progress. (Joint work with Henrik Matthiesen and Sugata Mondal.)
