### implicit function theorem and harmonic mapping

We are given two Riemannian manifolds $M,N$ of dimension $m$ and $n$ and a function $G \colon M \times N \to \mathbb{R}^n$ which satisfies the assumptions of the implicit function theorem, meaning ...

### Locally symmetric spaces: spectrum of the Laplacian

Let $M = \Gamma\backslash X$ denote a locally symmetric space of non-compact type and $\Delta$ the Laplacian on $L^2(M)$. It is known that the spectrum of $\Delta$ decomposes into finitely many ...

### How to prove that the Laplace oparator of the Heisenberg group is sub-elliptic?

The Heisenberg group $H^3$ is the set $\mathbb C\times \mathbb R$ endowed with the group law $$(z,t)\cdot(w,s) =\left (z+w, \,t+s+\tfrac{1}{2}\Im m(z \bar{w})\right).$$ For $z=x+ i y \in \mathbb C$ ...

### Permanent bound for Laplacian matrix of signed graph

In 1986, Prof. RB Bapat shown that (see here) if $G$ is a simple connected graph on $n$ vertices, then, the permanent per$\big(L(G)\big)\ge 2(n-1)\kappa(G)$, where $L(G)$ is the Laplacian matrix of $G$...

### Estimate for the first eigenvalue of the Laplacian

I was studying the paper of S. T. Yau - Seminar on Differential Geometry - and there asks if the first eigenvalue is equal to $n$, if we have a embedded oriented Riemannian manifold and closed ...
