We give evidence of the fact that if the limit dynamics exists and is induced by the Laplacian on the graph with certain self-adjoint boundary conditions, such conditions are determined by the possible presence of a zero energy resonance on the fat graph.
Pictorially, one may say that in the shrinking limit the resonance acts as a bridge connecting the boundary values at the vertex along the different rays.1 aDell'Antonio, Gianfausto1 aMichelangeli, Alessandro uhttp://urania.sissa.it/xmlui/handle/1963/7485
