Spectral Properties of a Family of Minimal Tori of Revolution in Fivedimensional Sphere
The normalized eigenvalues $\Lambda_i(M,g)$ of the LaplaceBeltrami
operator can be considered as functionals on the space of all
Riemannian metrics $g$ on a fixed surface $M$. In recent papers
several explicit examples of extremal metrics were provided.
These metrics are induced by minimal immersions of surfaces in
$\mathbb{S}^3$ or $\mathbb{S}^4$. In the present paper a family
of extremal metrics induced by minimal immersions in $\mathbb{S}^5$
is investigated.

On the Inner Radius of a Nodal Domain
Let $M$ be a closed Riemannian manifold.
We consider the inner radius of a nodal domain for a large eigenvalue $\lambda$.
We give upper and lower bounds on the inner radius of the type
$C/\lambda^\alpha(\log\lambda)^\beta$. Our proof is based on
a local behavior of eigenfunctions discovered by Donnelly and
Fefferman and a Poincar\'{e} type inequality proved by Maz'ya.
Sharp lower bounds are known
only in dimension two. We give an account of this case too.

Dynamical Zeta Function for Several Strictly Convex Obstacles
The behavior of the dynamical zeta function $Z_D(s)$ related to
several strictly convex disjoint obstacles is similar to that of the
inverse $Q(s) = \frac{1}{\zeta(s)}$ of the Riemann zeta function
$\zeta(s)$. Let $\Pi(s)$ be the series obtained from $Z_D(s)$ summing
only over primitive periodic rays. In this paper we examine the
analytic singularities of $Z_D(s)$ and $\Pi(s)$ close to the line $\Re
s = s_2$, where $s_2$ is the abscissa of absolute convergence of the
series obtained by the second iterations of the primitive periodic
rays. We show that at least one of the functions $Z_D(s), \Pi(s)$
has a singularity at $s = s_2$.

The Spectrum and Isometric Embeddings of Surfaces of Revolution
A sharp upper bound on the first $S^{1}$ invariant eigenvalue of the Laplacian
for $S^1$ invariant metrics on $S^2$ is used to find obstructions to the existence
of $S^1$ equivariant isometric embeddings of such metrics in $(\R^3,\can)$. As a
corollary we prove: If the first four distinct eigenvalues have even multiplicities
then the metric cannot be equivariantly, isometrically embedded in $(\R^3,\can)$. This
leads to generalizations of some classical results in the theory of surfaces.
