Orbital $L$functions for the Space of Binary Cubic Forms
We introduce the notion of orbital $L$functions
for the space of binary cubic forms
and investigate their analytic properties.
We study their functional equations and residue formulas in some detail.
Aside from their intrinsic interest,
the results from this paper are used to
prove the existence of secondary terms in counting
functions for cubic fields.
This is worked out in a companion paper.

Nearly Countable Dense Homogeneous Spaces
We study separable metric spaces with few types of countable dense
sets. We present a structure theorem for locally compact spaces
having precisely $n$ types of countable dense sets: such a space
contains a subset $S$ of size at most $n{}1$ such that $S$ is
invariant under
all homeomorphisms of $X$ and $X\setminus S$ is countable dense
homogeneous. We prove that every Borel space having fewer than $\mathfrak{c}$
types of
countable dense sets is Polish. The natural question of whether every
Polish space has either countably many or $\mathfrak{c}$ many types of
countable
dense sets, is shown to be closely related to Topological Vaught's
Conjecture.

Extreme Version of Projectivity for Normed Modules Over Sequence Algebras
We define and study the socalled extreme version of the notion of a
projective normed module. The relevant definition takes into account
the exact value of the norm of the module in question, in contrast
with the standard known definition that is formulated in terms of norm
topology.
After the discussion of the case where our normed algebra $A$ is just
$\mathbb{C}$, we concentrate on the case of the next degree of complication,
where $A$ is a sequence algebra, satisfying some natural conditions.
The main results give a full characterization of extremely projective
objects within the subcategory of the category of nondegenerate
normed $A$modules, consisting of the socalled homogeneous modules.
We consider two cases, `noncomplete' and `complete', and the
respective answers turn out to be essentially different.
In particular, all Banach nondegenerate homogeneous modules,
consisting of sequences, are extremely projective within the category
of Banach nondegenerate homogeneous modules. However, neither of
them, provided it is infinitedimensional, is extremely projective
within the category of all normed nondegenerate homogeneous modules.
On the other hand, submodules of these modules, consisting of finite
sequences, are extremely projective within the latter category.

On Flag Curvature of Homogeneous Randers Spaces
In this paper we give an explicit formula for the flag curvature of
homogeneous Randers spaces of Douglas type and apply this formula to
obtain some interesting results. We first deduce an explicit formula
for the flag curvature of an arbitrary left invariant Randers metric
on a twostep nilpotent Lie group. Then we obtain a classification of
negatively curved homogeneous Randers spaces of Douglas type. This
results, in particular, in many examples of homogeneous nonRiemannian
Finsler spaces with negative flag curvature. Finally, we prove a
rigidity result that a homogeneous Randers space of Berwald type whose
flag curvature is everywhere nonzero must be Riemannian.

Harmonic Analysis Related to Homogeneous Varieties in Three Dimensional Vector Spaces over Finite Fields
In this paper we study the extension problem, the
averaging problem, and the generalized ErdÅsFalconer distance
problem associated with arbitrary homogeneous varieties in three
dimensional vector spaces over finite fields. In the case when the
varieties do not contain any plane passing through the origin, we
obtain the best possible results on the aforementioned three problems. In
particular, our result on the extension problem modestly generalizes
the result by Mockenhaupt and Tao who studied the particular conical
extension problem. In addition, investigating the Fourier decay on
homogeneous varieties enables us to give complete mapping properties
of averaging operators. Moreover, we improve the size condition on a
set such that the cardinality of its distance set is nontrivial.

Ricci Solitons and Geometry of Fourdimensional Nonreductive Homogeneous Spaces
We study the geometry of nonreductive $4$dimensional homogeneous
spaces. In particular, after describing their LeviCivita connection
and curvature properties, we classify homogeneous Ricci solitons on
these spaces, proving the existence of shrinking, expanding and steady
examples. For all the nontrivial examples we find, the Ricci operator
is diagonalizable.

A Generalized Poisson Transform of an $L^{p}$Function over the Shilov Boundary of the $n$Dimensional Lie Ball
Let $\mathcal{D}$ be the $n$dimensional Lie ball and let
$\mathbf{B}(S)$ be the space of hyperfunctions on the Shilov
boundary $S$ of $\mathcal{D}$.
The aim of this paper is to give a
necessary and sufficient condition on the generalized Poisson
transform $P_{l,\lambda}f$ of an element $f$ in the space
$\mathbf{B}(S)$ for $f$ to be in $ L^{p}(S)$, $1 > p > \infty.$
Namely, if $F$ is the Poisson transform of some $f\in
\mathbf{B}(S)$ (i.e., $F=P_{l,\lambda}f$), then for any
$l\in \mathbb{Z}$ and $\lambda\in \mathbb{C}$ such that
$\mathcal{R}e[i\lambda] > \frac{n}{2}1$, we show that $f\in L^{p}(S)$ if and
only if $f$ satisfies the growth condition
$$
\F\_{\lambda,p}=\sup_{0\leq r
< 1}(1r^{2})^{\mathcal{R}e[i\lambda]\frac{n}{2}+l}\Big[\int_{S}F(ru)^{p}du
\Big]^{\frac{1}{p}} < +\infty.

Quantum Cohomology of Minuscule Homogeneous Spaces III. SemiSimplicity and Consequences
We prove that the quantum cohomology ring of any minuscule or
cominuscule homogeneous space, specialized at $q=1$, is semisimple.
This implies that complex conjugation defines an algebra automorphism
of the quantum cohomology ring localized at the quantum
parameter. We check that this involution coincides with the strange
duality defined in our previous article. We deduce VafaIntriligator type
formulas for the GromovWitten invariants.

Mutually Aposyndetic Decomposition of Homogeneous Continua
A new decomposition, the \emph{mutually aposyndetic decomposition} of
homogeneous continua into closed, homogeneous sets is introduced. This
decomposition is respected by homeomorphisms and topologically
unique. Its quotient is a mutually aposyndetic homogeneous continuum,
and in all known examples, as well as in some general cases, the
members of the decomposition are semiindecomposable continua. As
applications, we show that hereditarily decomposable homogeneous
continua and path connected homogeneous continua are mutually
aposyndetic. A class of new examples of homogeneous continua is
defined. The mutually aposyndetic decomposition of each of these
continua is nontrivial and different from Jones' aposyndetic
decomposition.

Invariant Einstein Metrics on Some Homogeneous Spaces of Classical Lie Groups
A Riemannian manifold $(M,\rho)$ is called Einstein if the metric
$\rho$ satisfies the condition \linebreak$\Ric (\rho)=c\cdot \rho$ for some
constant $c$. This paper is devoted to the investigation of
$G$invariant Einstein metrics, with additional symmetries,
on some homogeneous spaces $G/H$ of classical groups.
As a consequence, we obtain new invariant Einstein metrics on some
Stiefel manifolds $\SO(n)/\SO(l)$.
Furthermore, we show that for any positive integer $p$ there exists a
Stiefel manifold $\SO(n)/\SO(l)$
that admits at least $p$
$\SO(n)$invariant Einstein metrics.

Regular Homeomorphisms of Finite Order on Countable Spaces
We present a structure theorem for a broad class of homeomorphisms of
finite order on countable zero dimensional spaces. As applications we
show the following.
\begin{compactenum}[\rm(a)]
\item Every countable nondiscrete topological group not containing an
open Boolean subgroup can be partitioned into infinitely many dense
subsets.
\item If $G$ is a countably infinite Abelian group with finitely many
elements of order $2$ and $\beta G$ is the Stone\v Cech
compactification of $G$ as a discrete semigroup, then for every
idempotent $p\in\beta G\setminus\{0\}$, the subset
$\{p,p\}\subset\beta G$ generates algebraically the free product of
oneelement semigroups $\{p\}$ and~$\{p\}$.

Nonreductive Homogeneous PseudoRiemannian Manifolds of Dimension Four
A method, due to \'Elie Cartan, is used to give an algebraic
classification of the nonreductive homogeneous pseudoRiemannian
manifolds of dimension four. Only one case with Lorentz signature can
be Einstein without having constant curvature, and two cases with
$(2,2)$ signature are Einstein of which one is Ricciflat. If a
fourdimensional nonreductive homogeneous pseudoRiemannian manifold
is simply connected, then it is shown to be diffeomorphic to
$\reals^4$. All metrics for the simply connected nonreductive
Einstein spaces are given explicitly. There are no nonreductive
pseudoRiemannian homogeneous spaces of dimension two and none of
dimension three with connected isotropy subgroup.

The Closure Ordering of Nilpotent Orbits of the Complex Symmetric Pair $(\SO_{p+q},\SO_p\times\SO_q)$
The main problem that is solved in this paper has the following simple
formulation (which is not used in its solution). The group $K =
\mathrm{O}_p ({\bf C}) \times \mathrm{O}_q ({\bf C})$ acts on the
space $M_{p,q}$ of $p\times q$ complex matrices by $(a,b) \cdot x =
axb^{1}$, and so does its identity component $K^0 = \SO_p ({\bf C})
\times \SO_q ({\bf C})$. A $K$orbit (or $K^0$orbit) in $M_{p,q}$ is said
to be nilpotent if its closure contains the zero matrix. The closure,
$\overline{\mathcal{O}}$, of a nilpotent $K$orbit (resp.\ $K^0$orbit)
${\mathcal{O}}$ in $M_{p,q}$ is a union of ${\mathcal{O}}$ and some
nilpotent $K$orbits (resp.\ $K^0$orbits) of smaller dimensions. The
description of the closure of nilpotent $K$orbits has been known for
some time, but not so for the nilpotent $K^0$orbits. A conjecture
describing the closure of nilpotent $K^0$orbits was proposed in
\cite{DLS} and verified when $\min(p,q) \le 7$. In this paper we
prove the conjecture. The proof is based on a study of two
prehomogeneous vector spaces attached to $\mathcal{O}$ and
determination of the basic relative invariants of these spaces.
The above problem is equivalent to the problem of describing the
closure of nilpotent orbits in the real Lie algebra $\mathfrak{so}
(p,q)$ under the adjoint action of the identity component of the real
orthogonal group $\mathrm{O}(p,q)$.
