On the asymptotic behaviour of the eigenvalues of a Robin problem. (English) Zbl 1240.35370
The authors prove that every eigenvalue of a Robin problem $$-\Delta u=\lambda u$$ in $$\Omega$$, $$\frac {\partial u}{\partial \nu }=\alpha u$$ on $$\partial \Omega ,$$ where $$\alpha$$ is a positive boundary parameter and $$\Omega \subset \mathbb {R}^{n}$$ is a bounded domain of class $$C^1,$$ behaves asymptotically like $$-\alpha ^2$$ as $$\alpha \rightarrow \infty$$. This generalizes an existing result for the first eigenvalue.
