Abstract

We study the resolvent for nontrapping obstacles on manifolds with Euclidean ends. It is well known that for such manifolds, the outgoing resolvent satisfies $\|\chi R(k) \chi\|_{L^2\to L^2}\leq C{k}^{-1}$ for ${k}>1$, but the constant $C$ has been little studied. We show that, for high frequencies, the constant is bounded above by $2/\pi$ times the length of the longest generalized bicharacteristic of $|\xi|_g^2-1$ remaining in the support of $\chi.$ We show that this estimate is optimal in the case of manifolds without boundary. We then explore the implications of this result for the numerical analysis of the Helmholtz equation.
