Categorical aspects of quantum groups: multipliers and intrinsic groups
We show that the assignment of the (left) completely bounded
multiplier algebra
$M_{cb}^l(L^1(\mathbb G))$ to a locally compact quantum group
$\mathbb G$, and
the assignment of the intrinsic group, form functors between
appropriate
categories. Morphisms of locally compact quantum
groups can be described by Hopf $*$homomorphisms between universal
$C^*$algebras, by bicharacters, or by special sorts of coactions.
We show that the whole
theory of completely bounded multipliers can be lifted to the
universal
$C^*$algebra level, and that then the different pictures of
both multipliers
(reduced, universal, and as centralisers)
and morphisms interact in extremely natural ways. The intrinsic
group of a
quantum group can be realised as a class of multipliers, and
so our techniques
immediately apply. We also show how to think of the intrinsic
group using
the universal $C^*$algebra picture, and then, again, show how
the differing
views on the intrinsic group interact naturally with morphisms.
We show that
the intrinsic group is the ``maximal classical'' quantum subgroup
of a locally
compact quantum group, show that it is even closed in the strong
Vaes sense,
and that the intrinsic group functor is an adjoint to the inclusion
functor
from locally compact groups to quantum groups.

Characterizing the absolute continuity of the convolution of orbital measures in a classical Lie algebra
Let $\mathfrak{g}$ be a compact, simple Lie algebra of dimension
$d$. It is
a classical result that the convolution of any $d$ nontrivial,
$G$invariant,
orbital measures is absolutely continuous with respect to
Lebesgue measure on $\mathfrak{g}$ and the sum of any $d$ nontrivial
orbits
has nonempty interior. The number $d$ was later reduced to the
rank of the
Lie algebra (or rank $+1$ in the case of type $A_{n}$). More
recently, the
minimal integer $k=k(X)$ such that the $k$fold convolution of
the orbital
measure supported on the orbit generated by $X$ is an absolutely
continuous
measure was calculated for each $X\in \mathfrak{g}$.
In this paper $\mathfrak{g}$ is any of the classical, compact,
simple Lie
algebras. We characterize the tuples $(X_{1},\dots,X_{L})$, with
$X_{i}\in
\mathfrak{g},$ which have the property that the convolution of
the $L$orbital
measures supported on the orbits generated by the $X_{i}$ is
absolutely continuous and, equivalently, the sum of their orbits
has
nonempty interior. The characterization depends on the Lie type
of
$\mathfrak{g}$ and the structure of the annihilating roots of
the $X_{i}$.
Such a characterization was previously known only for type $A_{n}$.

On a linear refinement of the PrÃ©kopaLeindler inequality
If $f,g:\mathbb{R}^n\longrightarrow\mathbb{R}_{\geq0}$ are nonnegative measurable
functions, then the PrÃ©kopaLeindler inequality asserts that
the integral of the Asplund sum (provided that it is measurable)
is greater or equal than the $0$mean of the integrals of $f$
and $g$.
In this paper we prove that under the sole assumption that $f$
and $g$ have
a common projection onto a hyperplane, the PrÃ©kopaLeindler
inequality admits a linear refinement. Moreover, the same inequality
can be obtained when assuming that both projections (not necessarily
equal as functions) have the same integral. An analogous approach
may be also carried out for the socalled BorellBrascampLieb
inequality.

The BochnerSchoenbergEberlein property and spectral synthesis for certain Banach algebra products
Associated with two commutative Banach algebras $A$ and $B$ and
a character $\theta$ of $B$ is a certain Banach algebra product
$A\times_\theta B$, which is a splitting extension of $B$ by
$A$. We investigate two topics for the algebra $A\times_\theta
B$ in relation to the corresponding ones of $A$ and $B$. The
first one is the BochnerSchoenbergEberlein property and the
algebra of BochnerSchoenbergEberlein functions on the spectrum,
whereas the second one concerns the wide range of spectral synthesis
problems for $A\times_\theta B$.

On Varieties of Lie Algebras of Maximal Class
We study complex projective varieties that parametrize
(finitedimensional) filiform Lie algebras over ${\mathbb C}$,
using equations derived by Millionshchikov. In the
infinitedimensional case we concentrate our attention on
${\mathbb N}$graded Lie algebras of maximal class. As shown by A.
Fialowski
there are only
three isomorphism types of $\mathbb{N}$graded Lie algebras
$L=\oplus^{\infty}_{i=1} L_i$ of maximal class generated by $L_1$
and $L_2$, $L=\langle L_1, L_2 \rangle$. Vergne described the
structure of these algebras with the property $L=\langle L_1
\rangle$. In this paper we study those generated by the first and
$q$th components where $q\gt 2$, $L=\langle L_1, L_q \rangle$. Under
some technical condition, there can only be one isomorphism type
of such algebras. For $q=3$ we fully classify them. This gives a
partial answer to a question posed by Millionshchikov.

Sharp Localized Inequalities for Fourier Multipliers
In the paper we study sharp localized $L^q\colon L^p$ estimates for
Fourier multipliers resulting from modulation of the jumps of
LÃ©vy
processes.
The proofs of these estimates rest on probabilistic methods and
exploit related sharp bounds for differentially subordinated
martingales, which are of independent interest. The lower bounds
for
the constants involve the analysis of laminates, a family of
certain
special probability measures on $2\times 2$ matrices. As an
application, we obtain new sharp bounds for the real and imaginary
parts of the BeurlingAhlfors operator .

Symplectic Degenerate Flag Varieties
A simple finite dimensional module $V_\lambda$ of a simple complex
algebraic group $G$ is naturally endowed with a filtration induced by the PBWfiltration
of $U(\mathrm{Lie}\, G)$. The associated graded space $V_\lambda^a$ is a module
for the group $G^a$, which can be roughly described as a semidirect product of a
Borel subgroup of $G$ and a large commutative unipotent group $\mathbb{G}_a^M$. In analogy
to the flag variety $\mathcal{F}_\lambda=G.[v_\lambda]\subset \mathbb{P}(V_\lambda)$,
we call the closure
$\overline{G^a.[v_\lambda]}\subset \mathbb{P}(V_\lambda^a)$
of the $G^a$orbit through the highest weight line the degenerate flag variety $\mathcal{F}^a_\lambda$.
In general this is a
singular variety, but we conjecture that it has many nice properties similar to
that of Schubert varieties. In this paper we consider the case of $G$ being the symplectic group.
The symplectic case is important for the conjecture
because it is the first known case where even for fundamental weights $\omega$ the varieties
$\mathcal{F}^a_\omega$ differ from $\mathcal{F}_\omega$. We give an explicit
construction of the varieties $Sp\mathcal{F}^a_\lambda$ and construct desingularizations,
similar to the BottSamelson resolutions in the classical case. We prove that $Sp\mathcal{F}^a_\lambda$
are normal locally complete intersections with terminal and rational singularities.
We also show that these varieties are Frobenius split. Using the above mentioned results, we
prove an analogue of the BorelWeil theorem and obtain a $q$character formula
for the characters of irreducible $Sp_{2n}$modules via the AtiyahBottLefschetz fixed
points formula.

Uniformly Continuous Functionals and MWeakly Amenable Groups
Let $G$ be a locally compact group. Let $A_{M}(G)$ ($A_{0}(G)$)denote
the closure of $A(G)$, the Fourier algebra of $G$ in the space of
bounded (completely bounded) multipliers of $A(G)$.
We call a locally compact group Mweakly amenable if
$A_M(G)$
has a
bounded approximate identity. We will show that when $G$ is Mweakly
amenable, the algebras $A_{M}(G)$ and $A_{0}(G)$ have
properties that are characteristic of the Fourier algebra of an
amenable group. Along the way we show that the sets of tolopolically
invariant means associated with these algebras have the same
cardinality as those of the Fourier algebra.

Inversion of the Radon Transform on the Free Nilpotent Lie Group of Step Two
Let $F_{2n,2}$ be the free nilpotent Lie group of step two on $2n$
generators, and let $\mathbf P$ denote the affine automorphism group
of $F_{2n,2}$. In this article the theory of continuous wavelet
transform on $F_{2n,2}$ associated with $\mathbf P$ is developed,
and then a type of radial wavelets is constructed. Secondly, the
Radon transform on $F_{2n,2}$ is studied and two equivalent
characterizations of the range for Radon transform are given.
Several kinds of inversion Radon transform formulae
are established. One is obtained from the Euclidean Fourier transform, the others are from group Fourier transform. By using wavelet transform we deduce an inversion formula of the Radon
transform, which
does not require the smoothness of
functions if the wavelet satisfies the differentiability property.
Specially, if $n=1$, $F_{2,2}$ is the $3$dimensional Heisenberg group $H^1$, the
inversion formula of the Radon transform is valid which is
associated with the subLaplacian on $F_{2,2}$. This result cannot
be extended to the case $n\geq 2$.

Continuity of convolution of test functions on Lie groups
For a Lie group $G$, we show that the map
$C^\infty_c(G)\times C^\infty_c(G)\to C^\infty_c(G)$,
$(\gamma,\eta)\mapsto \gamma*\eta$
taking a pair of
test functions to their convolution is continuous if and only if $G$ is $\sigma$compact.
More generally, consider $r,s,t
\in \mathbb{N}_0\cup\{\infty\}$ with $t\leq r+s$, locally convex spaces $E_1$, $E_2$
and a continuous bilinear map $b\colon E_1\times E_2\to F$
to a complete locally convex space $F$.
Let $\beta\colon C^r_c(G,E_1)\times C^s_c(G,E_2)\to C^t_c(G,F)$,
$(\gamma,\eta)\mapsto \gamma *_b\eta$ be the associated convolution map.
The main result is a characterization of those $(G,r,s,t,b)$
for which $\beta$ is continuous.
Convolution
of compactly supported continuous functions on a locally compact group
is also discussed, as well as convolution of compactly supported $L^1$functions

Transference of vectorvalued multipliers on weighted $L^p$spaces
We prove
restriction and extension of multipliers between
weighted Lebesgue spaces with
two different weights, which belong to a class more general than periodic weights, and two different exponents of integrability which can be
below one.
We also develop some adhoc methods which apply to weights
defined by the product of periodic weights with functions of power type.
Our vectorvalued approach allow us to extend results
to transference of maximal multipliers and provide transference of LittlewoodPaley inequalities.

Lagrange's Theorem for Hopf Monoids in Species
Following Radford's proof of Lagrange's theorem for pointed Hopf algebras,
we prove Lagrange's theorem for Hopf monoids in the category of
connected species.
As a corollary, we obtain necessary conditions for a given subspecies
$\mathbf k$ of a Hopf monoid $\mathbf h$ to be a Hopf submonoid: the quotient of
any one of the generating series of $\mathbf h$ by the corresponding
generating series of $\mathbf k$ must have nonnegative coefficients. Other
corollaries include a necessary condition for a sequence of
nonnegative integers to be the
dimension sequence of a Hopf monoid
in the form of certain polynomial inequalities, and of
a settheoretic Hopf monoid in the form of certain linear inequalities.
The latter express that the binomial transform of the sequence must be nonnegative.

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.

MAD Saturated Families and SANE Player
We throw some light on the question: is there a MAD family
(a maximal family of infinite subsets of $\mathbb{N}$, the intersection of any
two is finite) that is saturated (completely separable \emph{i.e.,} any
$X \subseteq \mathbb{N}$ is
included in a finite union of members of the family \emph{or} includes a
member (and even continuum many members) of the family).
We prove that it is hard to prove the consistency of the negation:
(i) if $2^{\aleph_0} \lt \aleph_\omega$, then there is such a family;
(ii) if there is no such family, then some situation
related to pcf holds whose consistency is large (and if ${\mathfrak a}_* \gt

(iii) if, \emph{e.g.,} there is no inner model with measurables,
\emph{then} there is such a family.

Decomposition of Splitting Invariants in Split Real Groups
For a maximal torus in a quasisplit semisimple simplyconnected group over a local field of characteristic $0$,
Langlands and Shelstad constructed a
cohomological invariant called the splitting invariant, which is an important
component of their endoscopic transfer factors. We study this invariant in the
case of a split real group and prove a
decomposition theorem which expresses this invariant for a general torus as a product of the corresponding
invariants for simple tori. We also show how this reduction formula allows for the comparison of splitting invariants
between different tori in the given real group.

Representing Multipliers of the Fourier Algebra on NonCommutative $L^p$ Spaces
We show that the multiplier algebra of the Fourier algebra on a
locally compact group $G$ can be isometrically represented on a direct
sum on noncommutative $L^p$ spaces associated with the right von
Neumann algebra of $G$. The resulting image is the idealiser of the
image of the Fourier algebra. If these spaces are given their
canonical operator space structure, then we get a completely isometric
representation of the completely bounded multiplier algebra. We make
a careful study of the noncommutative $L^p$ spaces we construct and
show that they are completely isometric to those considered recently
by Forrest, Lee, and Samei. We improve a result of theirs about module
homomorphisms. We suggest a definition of a FigaTalamancaHerz
algebra built out of these noncommutative $L^p$ spaces, say
$A_p(\widehat G)$. It is shown that $A_2(\widehat G)$ is isometric to
$L^1(G)$, generalising the abelian situation.

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

The BrascampLieb Polyhedron
A set of necessary and sufficient conditions for the BrascampLieb inequality to hold has recently been found by Bennett, Carbery, Christ, and Tao. We present an analysis of these conditions. This analysis allows us to give a concise description of the set where the inequality holds in the case where each of the linear maps involved has corank $1$. This complements the result of Barthe concerning the case where the linear maps all have rank $1$. Pushing our analysis further, we describe the case where the maps have either rank $1$ or rank $2$. A separate but related problem is to give a list of the finite number of conditions necessary and sufficient for the BrascampLieb inequality to hold. We present an algorithm which generates such a list.
