190 Chapter 31. Solutions: Case Study: Eigenvalues: Valuable Principles since a 1 ( x ) ,a 2 ( x ) > 0. Suppose A w = λw . Then 0 ( w, A w )= λ ( w, w ) , so λ 0. (b) We know that λ 1 (Ω) = min w ± =0 ( w, A w ) ( w, w ) where the integrals are taken over Ω and w is constrained to be zero on the boundary of Ω. Suppose that the w that minimizes the function is ˜ w and let’s extend ˜ w to make it zero over the part of ˜ Ω not contained in Ω. Then

From Challenge 1, we know that the smallest eigenvalue for a square with dimension b is 2 Ï€ 2 /b , so we want b = âˆš 2 / 2. Using MATLABâ€™s PDE Toolbox interactively, we discover that Î± â‰ˆ 1 . 663....
