Small Eigenvalues

The asymptotic length distribution of the closed geodesics on a compact Riemann surface S is strongly influenced by the eigenvalues of the Laplacian in the interval [0,1/4].In the prime number theorem (Theorem 9.6.1) and in many applications of Selberg’s trace formula, the distinction between eigenvalues above and eigenvalues below 1/4 is essentially for technical reasons and has to do with the fact.
