Motivated by questions about the spectral geometry of hyperbolic manifolds, arising in number theory, we seek a lower bound for the first nonzero eigenvalue of the Laplace Beltrami operator on 1-forms on hyperbolic manifolds. We prove an analog of Cheeger's inequality. Joint work with Michael Lipnowski.
