We generalize to the p-Laplacian Δp a spectral inequality proved by M.-T. Kohler−Jobin. As a particular case of such a generalization, we obtain a sharp lower bound on the first Dirichlet eigenvalue of Δp of a set in terms of its p-torsional rigidity. The result is valid in every space dimension, for every 1 < p < ∞ and for every open set with finite measure. Moreover, it holds by replacing the first eigenvalue with more general optimal Poincaré-Sobolev constants. The method of proof is based on a generalization of the rearrangement technique introduced by Kohler−Jobin.
