A note on measure-geometric Laplacians

By Marc Kesseböhmer, Tony Samuel and Hendrik Weyer


We consider the measure-geometric Laplacians $\Delta^{\mu}$ with respect to atomless compactly supported Borel probability measures $\mu$ as introduced by Freiberg and Z\"ahle in 2002 and show that the harmonic calculus of $\Delta^{\mu}$ can be deduced from the classical (weak) Laplacian. We explicitly calculate the eigenvalues and eigenfunctions of $\Delta^{\mu}$. Further, it is shown that there exists a measure-geometric Laplacian whose eigenfunctions are the Chebyshev polynomials and illustrate our results through specific examples of fractal measures, namely Salem and inhomogeneous self-similar Cantor measures.Comment: 9 pages, 10 figure
