Abstract: Let $ D$ be a domain of finite Lebesgue measure in $ \mathbb{R}^d$ and let $ X^D_t$ be the symmetric $ \alpha$-stable process killed upon exiting $ D$. Each element of the set $ \{ \lambda_i^\alpha\}_{i=1}^\infty$ of eigenvalues associated to $ X^D_t$, regarded as a function of $ \alpha\in(0,2)$, is right continuous. In addition, if $ D$ is Lipschitz and bounded, then each $ \lambda_i^\alpha$ is continuous in $ \alpha$ and the set of associated eigenfunctions is precompact.
