Magnetic Laplacian in sharp three dimensional cones

The core result of this paper is an upper bound for the ground state energy of the magnetic Laplacian with constant magnetic field $\mathbf{B}=(B_1,B_2,B_3)$ on cones that are contained in a half-space. This bound involves a weighted norm $e(\mathbf{B},\omega)$ of the magnetic field related to moments $m_j$ on a plane section $\omega$ of the cone (Theorem 1.2): $$ e(\mathbf{B},\omega) =\left(B_{3}^2\frac{m_{0}m_{2}-m_{1}^2}{m_{0}+m_{2}} + B_{2}^2m_{2} + B_{1}^2m_{0} -2 B_{1}B_{2}m_{1} \right)^{1/2}. $$ When the cone is sharp, i.e. when its section is small, this upper bound tends to 0. A lower bound on the essential spectrum is proved for families of sharp cones, implying that if the section is small enough the ground state energy is an eigenvalue. This circumstance produces corner concentration in the semi-classical limit for the magnetic Schrödinger operator when such sharp cones are involved.
