Inequality (8) then follows, and, with it, the Weyl formula for Dirichlet eigenvalue problems on bounded domains in R". For the proof of (8) for the Neumann eigenvalue problem, compare Courant-Hilbert [l, Vol. I, pp. 432-4341. Remark I : The eigenvalues of the equilateral triangle have been studied by Lee-Crandall [l], and Pinsky [3,4]; for Euclidean and spherical domains associated to crystallographic groups (cf. BCrard [13 and BCrardBesson [l]). More generally, in another direction, it has been conjectured by G.

5. DISKS IN CONSTANT CURVATURE SPACE FORMS We shall be more informal in the calculations that follow, namely, for a given Riemannian manifold, and chart x: U -,R", it is traditional to write the Riemannian metric in the chart as ds2 = C gj&) dx' dxk. j,k When changing coordinates one substitutes formally into the differential expressions-and all is well. Thus for the usual metric in [w" we write n ds2 = 1 (dx')' 3 ldxl', j= 1 where x is the standard chart on R". Upon introducing spherical coordinates about any p E R", x =p where t E [O, a), + tr, 6 E S"-',we write + t dl, ldxl2 = (dt)21t12 + 2t(dt)((, d t ) + t ZldtlZ = (dt)' + t21dt1', dx = ( d t ) t 37 5.

M. We can therefore argue that iff is orthogonal to Yl, . , Yk- in L2(M)then s(Qr) , But there exists a nontrivial k f = 2 ajbj j= 1 orthogonal to Y l ,. Then DIXfl 5 nkllf 11'5 which implies the claim. Remark I : We note the contrast in the hypotheses of the two domain monotonicity theorems for eigenvalues, the addition of vanishing Neumann data requiring a complete partition of M. To employ this result in a fixed geometric setting, with good choices of Q,, . ,R , one requires a priori some knowledge of the decomposability of M .
