1. Streit, Brian Quantz. Conformal mapping methods for spectral zeta function calculations.

Degree: PhD, Baylor University. Dept. of Mathematics., 2015, Baylor University

We first show how to relate two spectral zeta functions corresponding to conformally equivalent two-dimensional smooth Riemannian manifolds. Next, the functional determinant of the Laplacian on an annulus is used to calculate the functional determinant of the Laplacian on a region bounded by two ellipses. We develop perturbation theory for Hermitian partial differential operators and show how this, combined with a conformal map from a disk to an elliptic region, can be used to derive a perturbative expansion for the spectral zeta function of the Laplacian on an elliptic region that is nearly circular. Finally, this perturbative expansion of the zeta function is used to approximate quantities of interest such as the functional determinant and heat kernel coefficients. Advisors/Committee Members: Kirsten, Klaus, 1962- (advisor).

2. Wu, Dongsheng. Eigenvalues of Differential Operators and Nontrivial Zeros of L-functions.

Degree: PhD, 2020, Brigham Young University

The Hilbert-P\'olya conjecture asserts that the non-trivial zeros of the Riemann zeta function ζ(s) correspond (in a certain canonical way) to the eigenvalues of some positive operator. R. Meyer constructed a differential operator D- acting on a function space \H and showed that the eigenvalues of the adjoint of D- are exactly the nontrivial zeros of ζ(s) with multiplicity correspondence. We follow Meyer's construction with a slight modification. Specifically, we define two function spaces \H_\cap and \H- on (0,∞) and characterize them via the Mellin transform. This allows us to show that Z\H_\cap\subseteq\H- where Zf(x)=∑n=1^∞ f(nx). Also, the differential operator D given by Df(x)=-xf'(x) induces an operator D- on the quotient space \H=\H-/Z\H_\cap. We show that the eigenvalues of D- on \H are exactly the nontrivial zeros of ζ(s). Moreover, the geometric multiplicity of each eigenvalue is one and the algebraic multiplicity of each eigenvalue is its vanishing order as a nontrivial zero of ζ(s). We generalize our construction on the Riemann zeta function to some L-functions, including the Dirichlet L-functions and L-functions associated with newforms in 𝓢k0(M)) with M ≥ 1 and k being a positive even integer. We give spectral interpretations for these L-functions in a similar fashion.

3. Lal, Nishu. Spectral Zeta Functions of Laplacians on Self-Similar Fractals.

Degree: Mathematics, 2012, University of California – Riverside

This thesis investigates the spectral zeta function of fractal differential operators such as the Laplacian on the unbounded (i.e., infinite) Sierpinski gasket and a self-similar Sturm – Liouville operator associated with a fractal self-similar measure on the half-line. In the latter case, C. Sabot discovered the relation between the spectrum of this operator and the iteration of a rational map of several complex variables, called the renormalization map. We obtain a factorization of the spectral zeta function of such an operator, expressed in terms of the Dirac delta hyperfunction, a geometric zeta function, and the zeta function associated with the dynamics of the corresponding renormalization map, viewed either as a polynomial function on the complex plane (in the first case) or (in the second case) as a polynomial on the complex projective plane. Our first main result extends to the case of the fractal Laplacian on the unbounded Sierpinski gasket a factorization formula obtained by M. Lapidus for the spectral zeta function of a fractal string and later extended by A. Teplyaev to the bounded (i.e., finite) Sierpinski gasket and some other decimable fractals. Furthermore, our second main result generalizes these factorization formulas to the renormalization maps of several complex variables associated with fractal Sturm – Liouville operators. Moreover, as a corollary, in the very special case when the underlying self-similar measure is Lebesgue measure on [0, 1], we obtain a representation of the Riemann zeta function in terms of the dynamics of a certain polynomial on the complex projective plane, thereby extending to several variables an analogous result by A. Teplyaev.
