This talk is concerned with new symmetry results for the extremals of the Caffarelli-Kohn-Nirenberg inequalities in a range of parameters for which no explicit results of symmetry have previously been known.  The method proceeds via spectral estimates. This is joint work with Jean Dolbeault and Maria Esteban.
