DESCRIPTION:My talk is about the well-known ``inverse spectral problem'' f
or convex bounded smooth plane domains\, i.e. the Kac problem `can you hea
r the shape of a drum'. The problem is to determine the domain from the ei
genvalues of the Laplacian with Dirichlet (or Neumann) boundary conditions
. It has long been conjectured that ellipses are uniquely determined by th
eir eigenvalues. My talk is about a recent result with Hamid Hezari which
proves that this is true if the ellipse has small eccentricity.\n\nhttps:/
