His motivation came rom physics. The unction ϕ represents a steady state temperature on M such that the lux on the boundary is proportional to the temperature. Problem ( is also important in conductivity and harmonic analysis as it was initially studied by Calderón in []. This is because the set o eigenvalues or the Steklo problem is the same as the set o eigenvalues o the well-known Dirichlet-Neumann map. This map associates to each unction u deined on the boundary M, the normal derivative o the harmonic unction on M with boundary data u. The Steklo problem is also important in conormal geometry in the problem o conormal deormation o a Riemannian metric on maniolds with boundary. The set o eigenvalues consists o an ininite sequence 0 < ν ν 2 ν 3 such that ν i. The irst non zero eigenvalue ν has the ollowing variational characterization, ν min ϕ { M ϕ 2 dυ M ϕ2 dσ : ϕ C ( M, M ϕ dσ 0 }. (2 For convex domains in the plane, Payne (see [6] showed that ν k o, where k o is the minimum value o the curvature on the boundary o the domain. Escobar (see [2] generalized Payne s Theorem (see [6] to maniolds 2-dimensionals with non negative Gaussian curvature. In this case Escobar showed that ν k 0, where k g k 0 and k g represents the geodesic curvature o the boundary. In higher dimensions, n 3, or non negative Ricci curvature maniolds, Escobar shows that ν > 2 k 0, where k 0 is a lower bound or any eigenvalue o the second undamental orm o the boundary. Escobar (see [3] established the ollowing conjecture. Conjecture.. Let (M n, g be a compact Riemannian with boundary and dimension n 3. Assume that Ric(g 0 and that the second undamental orm π satisies π k 0 I on M, k 0 > 0. Then ν k 0. Equality holds only or Euclidean ball o radius k 0. We propose to prove the conjecture or rotationally invariant metrics on the ball. Volumen 47, Número 2, Año 203

3 THE STEKLOFF PROBLEM ON THE BALL Preliminaries Throughout this paper B r will be the n dimensional ball o radius r > 0 parametrized by X(s, w sy (w, 0 s r, (3 where Y (w is a standard parametrization o the unit sphere (n dimensional, S n, given by Y (w Y (w,..., w n (sin w n sin w n 2 sin w,..., sin w n cos w n 2, cos w n. (B r, g will be the ball endowed with a rotationally invariant metric, i.e., such that in the parametrization (3 has the orm ds (sdw 2, where dw 2 represents the standard metric on S n, with (0 0, (0 and (s > 0 or 0 < s r. I D is the Levi-Civita connection associated to the metric g, and X s (s, w Y (w, X i (s, w w i X(s, w sy i (w, i,..., n, are the coordinate ields corresponding to the parametrization (3, it is easy to veriy the ollowing identities: D Xs X s 0.

To coordinate ields, this relation is given by g ( D Xi X j, X k 2 X jg ( X i, X k + 2 X ig ( X j, X k 2 X kg ( X i, X j.

The First Nonconstant Eigenunction or the Steklo Problem on B r In the ollowing theorem Escobar characterized the irst eigenunction o a geodesic ball which has a rotationally invariant metric (see [4]. Theorem 4.. Let B r be a ball in R n endowed with a rotationally invariant metric ds (sdw 2, where dw 2 represents the standard metric on S n, with (0 0, (0 and (s > 0 or 0 < s r. The irst non constant eigenunction or the Steklo problem on B r has the orm ϕ(s, w ψ(se(w, (5 where e(w satisies the equation e + (n e 0 on S n and the unction ψ satisies the dierential equation d ( n n (s dds (s ds ψ(s (n ψ(s 2 0 in (0, r, (6 (s with the conditions ψ (r ν ψ(r, ψ(0 0. (7 Proo. We use separation o variables and observe that the space L 2 (B r is equal to the space L 2 (0, r L 2 (S n. Let {e i }, i 0,, 2,..., be a complete orthogonal set o eigenunctions or the Laplacian on S n with associated eigenvalues λ i such that 0 λ 0 < λ λ 2 λ 3. For i, let ψ i be the unction satisying ( d n n (s d (s ds ds ψ i(s (n ψ i(s 2 0 in (0, r, (s ψ i (r β iψ i (r, ψ i (0 0. Let u 0 and u i ψ i (se i (w or i, 2,....

Because the competing unctions in the variational characterization o ν are orthogonal to the constant unctions on B r, we easily ind that ν β. Using the ormula g ϕ 2 ϕ s + (n ϕ 2 s + ϕ, where is the 2 standard Laplacian on S n, the equation (6 ollows. s When n 2, the unction ψ has the orm ψ(s ce du (u or c constant. The irst eigenvalue and the mean curvature are given by ν ψ (r ψ(r (r and h(r (r (r. From this we observe: Remark 4.2. When (s s + s 3 or (s sinh(s (the hyperbolic space with curvature since (r > then ν < h(r. Thereore or n 2, the condition that B r has non-negative sectional curvature is necessary. Remark 4.3. From Proposition 3., the condition o non negative sectional curvature implies that (s 0, and thereore is decreasing. Since (0, then (r. Hence, or n 2 the condition o non negative sectional curvature implies ν h(r. As examples o these metrics we have (s s (standard metric, (s sin(s (constant sectional curvature equal to and (s s s Main Theorem Theorem 5.. Let (B r, g be a ball in R n (n 3 endowed with a rotationally invariant metric. Assume that B r has non-negative sectional curvature and mean curvature on B r, h(r > 0. Then the irst non-zero eigenvalue o the Steklo problem ν satisies ν h(r. Equality holds only or the standard metric o R n. Proo. The coordinate unctions are eigenunctions o the Laplacian on S n. From the equation (5 it ollows that ϕ(s, w ψ(s cos w n is an eigenunction associated to the irst eigenvalue ν. Consider the unction F 2 ϕ 2. Since ϕ is a harmonic unction and Ric ( ϕ, ϕ 0, the Weizenböck ormula (see [5] F Hess(ϕ 2 ( + g ϕ, ( ϕ + Ric( ϕ, ϕ implies that F 0, and hence F is a subharmonic unction. Thereore, the maximum o F is achieved at some point P (r, θ B r. Hop s Maximum Principle implies that F s (r, θ > 0 or F is constant.

(20 ψ(r (r The condition h(r > 0 and (0 implies that (r > 0. Since B r has non negative sectional curvature then (2 implies that ( 2. Then ( 2 (r From (20 and (2 it ollows that ν h(r.
