Abstract:

We study a spectral optimization problem made as the sum of the first Dirichlet Laplacian eigenvalue, and the relative strength of a Riesz-type interaction functional. We show that when the Riesz repulsion strength is below a critical value, existence of minimizers occurs and they are $C^{1,\alpha}-$regular. This allows to show by means of an expansion analysis that the ball is a rigid minimizer as the Riesz repulsion is small enough. We also show that if the Riesz repulsion is large enough, then minimizers do not exist.
