### On the spectrum of an elastic solid with cusps

Vladimir Kozlov and Sergei A. Nazarov

#### Abstract

The spectral problem of anisotropic elasticity with traction-free boundary conditions is considered in a bounded domain with a spatial cusp having its vertex at the origin and given by triples $(x_1,x_2,x_3)$ such that $x_3^{-2}(x_1,x_2) \in \omega$, where $\omega$ is a two-dimensional Lipschitz domain with a compact closure. We show that there exists a threshold $\lambda_\dagger>0$ expressed explicitly in terms of the elasticity constants and the area of $\omega$ such that the continuous spectrum coincides with the half-line $[\lambda_\dagger,\infty)$, whereas the interval $[0,\lambda_\dagger)$ contains only the discrete spectrum. The asymptotic formula for solutions to this spectral problem near cusp's vertex is also derived. A principle feature of this asymptotic formula is the dependence of the leading term on the spectral parameter.
