Two-phase eigenvalue problem on thin domains with Neumann boundary condition. (English) Zbl 1463.35225

Summary: In this paper, we study an eigenvalue problem with piecewise constant coefficients on thin domains with Neumann boundary condition, and we analyze the asymptotic behavior of each eigenvalue as the domain degenerates into a certain hypersurface being the set of discontinuities of the coefficients. We show how the discontinuity of the coefficients and the geometric shape of the interface affect the asymptotic behavior of the eigenvalues by using a variational approach.
