• Abstract

Let M be an n-dimensional noncompact complete Riemannian manifold, "Δ" is the Laplacian of M. It is a negative selfadjoint operator in L²(M). First, we give a criterion of non-existence of eigenvalue by the heat kernel. Applying the criterion yields that the Laplacian on noncompact constant curvature space form has no eigenvalue. Then, we give a geometric condition of M under which the Laplacian of M has eigenvalues. It implies that changing the metric on a compact domain of constant negative curvature space form may yield eigenvalues.
