Computed eigenmodes of planar regions

Publication Date
  • 35 Partial Differential Equations
  • 65 Numerical Analysis


Recently developed numerical methods make possible the high-accuracy computation of eigenmodes of the Laplacian for a variety of "drums" in two dimensions. A number of computed examples are presented together with a discussion of their implications concerning bound and continuum states, isospectrality, symmetry and degeneracy, eigenvalue avoidance, resonance, localization, eigenvalue optimization, perturbation of eigenvalues and eigenvectors, and other matters.
