Let $\lambda_k$ be the Dirichlet eigenvalues for the domain $\Omega$, that is, the eigenvalues of the Dirichlet problem for the Laplacian:

$\begin{cases} \Delta u + \lambda u = 0, \\ u|_{\partial \Omega} = 0. \end{cases}$

Since the system above is self-adjoint, the eigenvalues are positive. Two domains are said to be isospectral if they have the same Laplacian eigenvalues.

One can state the discrete analog of the question on graphs...
