Isoperimetric inequalities for Schatten norms of Riesz potentials
Journal article, 2016
In this note we prove that the ball is a maximiser for integer order Schatten p-norms of the Riesz potential operators among all domains of a given measure in R-d. In particular, the result is valid for the polyharmonic Newton potential operator, which is related to a nonlocal boundary value problem for the poly-Laplacian extending the one considered by M. Kac in the case of the Laplacian, so we obtain isoperimetric inequalities for its eigenvalues as well, namely, analogues of Rayleigh-Faber-Krahn. and Hong-Krahn-Szego inequalities.
