Abstract

Using spherical harmonics, rearrangement techniques, the Sobolev inequality, and Chiti's reverse Hölder inequality, we obtain extensions of a classical result of Payne, Polya, and Weinberger bounding the gap between consecutive eigenvalues of the Dirichlet Laplacian in terms of moments of the preceding ones. The extensions yield domain-dependent inequalities.
