Aperiodic Order: Volume 1, A Mathematical Invitation by Michael Baake,Uwe Grimm,Roger Penrose

The totality of the eigenvalues of the Laplacian of a compact Riemannian manifold is termed the spectrum. We describe how the spectrum determines a Riemannian manifold. The continuity of the eigenvalue of the Laplacian, Cheeger and Yau's estimate of the 1st eigenvalue, the Lichnerowicz–Obata's theorem at the first eigenvalue, the Cheng's estimates of the kth eigenvalues, and Payne–Pólya–Weinberger's inequality of the Dirichlet eigenvalue of the Laplacian also are defined.
