Sumario: This paper concerns the minimization of the first eigenvalue in problems involvingthe bi-Laplacian under either homogeneous Navier boundary conditions or homogeneousDirichlet boundary conditions. Physically, in case of N = 2, our equation modelsthe vibration of a non homogeneous plate  which is either hinged or clamped alongthe boundary. Given several materials (with different densities) of total extension ||,we investigate the location of these materials inside  so to minimize the first modein the vibration of the corresponding plate.Keywords: bi-Laplacian, first eigenvalue, minimization.
