## Abstract

Let X be a compact Riemannian manifold with conic singularities, i.e. a Riemannian manifold whose metric has a conic degeneracy at the boundary. Let Δ be the Friedrichs extension of the Laplace-Beltrami operator on X. There are two natural ways to define geodesics passing through the boundary: as "diffractive" geodesics which may emanate from ∂X in any direction, or as "geometric" geodesics which must enter and leave ∂X at points which are connected by a geodesic of length π in ∂X. Let DIFF = {0}∪{±lengths of closed diffractive geodesics} and GEOM = {0} ∪ {±lengths of closed geometric geodesics}. We show that Tr cos t√Δ ∈ ^{-n-0} (ℝ) ∩ C^{-1-0} (ℝ\GEOM) ∩ C^{∞} (ℝ\DIFF). This generalizes a classical result of Chazarain and Duistermaat-Guillemin on boundaryless manifolds, which in turn follows from Poisson summation in the case X = S^{1}.
