Localization effects for eigenfunctions near to the edge of a thin domain. (English) Zbl 1022.74003
Summary: It is proved that the first eigenfunction of the mixed boundary value problem for Laplacian in a thin domain $$\Omega _h$$ is localized either at the whole lateral surface $$\Gamma _h$$ of the domain, or at a point of $$\Gamma _h$$, while the eigenfunction decays exponentially inside $$\Omega _h$$. Other effects, attributed to the high-frequency range of the spectrum, are discussed for eigenfunctions of the mixed boundary value and Neumann problems, too.
