On the error in the two-term Weyl formula for the Dirichlet Laplacian


We study the optimality of the remainder term in the two-term Weyl law for the Dirichlet Laplacian within the class of Lipschitz regular subsets of R^d. In particular, for the short-time asymptotics of the trace of the heat kernel, we prove that the error term cannot be made quantitatively better than little-o of the second term.
