The spectral function , where are the eigenvalues of the
negative Laplace-Beltrami operator , is studied for a compact Riemannian manifold of dimension
with a smooth boundary , where a finite number of piecewise impedance boundary conditions
on the parts of the boundary can be considered, such that
, and are assumed to be smooth functions which are not strictly positive.
