## Abstract

We derive differential inequalities and difference inequalities for Riesz means of eigenvalues of the Dirichlet Laplacian,R_{ρ} (z) : = under(∑, k) (z - λ_{k})_{+}^{ρ} . Here {λ_{k}}_{k = 1}^{∞} are the ordered eigenvalues of the Laplacian on a bounded domain Ω ⊂ R^{d}, and x_{+} : = max (0, x) denotes the positive part of the quantity x. As corollaries of these inequalities, we derive Weyl-type bounds on λ_{k}, on averages such as over(λ_{k}, -) : = frac(1, k) ∑_{ℓ ≤ k} λ_{ℓ}, and on the eigenvalue counting function. For example, we prove that for all domains and all k ≥ j frac(1 + frac(d, 2), 1 + frac(d, 4)),frac(over(λ_{k}, -), over(λ_{j}, -)) ≤ 2 (frac(1 + frac(d, 4), 1 + frac(d, 2)))^{1 + frac(2, d)} (frac(k, j))^{frac(2, d)} .
