Generalized Minkowski content, spectrum of fractal strings, and the Riemann zeta-function. (English) Zbl 0877.35086
Mem. Am. Math. Soc. 608, 97 p. (1997).
This memoir is a survey on the effect of the fractality of the domain on the spectrum of the Dirichlet or Neumann Laplace operator. The authors study especially fractal strings and the links between the eigenvalues of the Laplace operator, the counting function, the Minkowski contents, and the Riemann zeta-function.
