Concavity of solutions to Schrödinger equations

This paper studies the concavity properties of solutions to Schrödinger equations with variable density and potential. It establishes log-concavity estimates for the principal eigenfunction, enabling new bounds on the fundamental spectral gap for various geometries. A key technique is the use of conformal connections to simplify computations. As an application, the paper partially resolves a conjecture on spectral gaps for horoconvex domains in hyperbolic geometry. It also derives a power convexity estimate for the torsion problem on spherical domains.
