## Abstract:

Let $\mu _{k}(\Omega )$ be the $k$th Neumann eigenvalue of a bounded domain $\Omega$ with piecewisely smooth boundary in $\textbf {R}^{n}$. In 1992, P. Kröger proved that $k^{-\frac {n+2}{n}}\sum _{j=1}^{k}\mu _{j}\leq {4n\pi ^{2}\over n+2}( \omega _{n}V)^{-2/n}$, where the upper bound is sharp in view of Weyl’s asymptotic formula. The aim of this paper is twofold. First, we will improve this estimate by multiplying a factor in terms of $k$ to its right-hand side which approaches strictly from below to 1 as $k$ tends to infinity. Second, we will generalize Kröger’s estimate to the case when $\Omega$ is a compact Euclidean submanifold.## References
