Abstract: In this article we obtain optimal estimates for the eigenvalues of a natural operator $K_{T^\#}$ for locally strongly convex centro-affine and graph hypersurfaces. Several immediate applications of our eigenvalue estimates are presented. We also provide examples to illustrate that our eigenvalue estimates are optimal.

Keywords: Centroaffine hypersurface, graph hypersurface, the operator, eigenvalue estimate.

Classification (MSC2000): 53A15, 53B20, 53B25; 53C40
