Une formule de Riemann-Roch équivariante pour les courbes
Soit $G$ un groupe fini agissant sur une courbe alg\'ebrique projective et lisse $X$ sur un corps alg\'ebriquement clos $k$. Dans cet article, on donne une formule de Riemann-Roch pour la caract\'eristique d'Euler \'equivariante d'un $G$-faisceau inversible $\mathcal{L}$, \`a valeurs dans l'anneau $R_k (G)$ des caract\`eres du groupe $G$. La formule donn\'ee a un bon comportement fonctoriel en ce sens qu'elle rel\`eve la formule classique le long du morphisme $\dim \colon R_k (G) \to \mathbb{Z}$, et est valable m\^eme pour une action sauvage. En guise d'application, on montre comment calculer explicitement le caract\`ere de l'espace des sections globales d'une large classe de $G$-faisceaux inversibles, en s'attardant sur le cas particulier d\'elicat du faisceau des diff\'erentielles sur la courbe.

Effective Actions of the Unitary Group on Complex Manifolds
We classify all connected $n$-dimensional complex manifolds admitting effective actions of the unitary group $U_n$ by biholomorphic transformations. One consequence of this classification is a characterization of $\CC^n$ by its automorphism group.

Keywords:complex manifolds, group actions

Diagonals and Partial Diagonals of Sum of Matrices
Given a matrix $A$, let $\mathcal{O}(A)$ denote the orbit of $A$ under a certain group action such as \begin{enumerate}[(4)] \item[(1)] $U(m) \otimes U(n)$ acting on $m \times n$ complex matrices $A$ by $(U,V)*A = UAV^t$, \item[(2)] $O(m) \otimes O(n)$ or $\SO(m) \otimes \SO(n)$ acting on $m \times n$ real matrices $A$ by $(U,V)*A = UAV^t$, \item[(3)] $U(n)$ acting on $n \times n$ complex symmetric or skew-symmetric matrices $A$ by $U*A = UAU^t$, \item[(4)] $O(n)$ or $\SO(n)$ acting on $n \times n$ real symmetric or skew-symmetric matrices $A$ by $U*A = UAU^t$. \end{enumerate} Denote by $$ \mathcal{O}(A_1,\dots,A_k) = \{X_1 + \cdots + X_k : X_i \in \mathcal{O}(A_i), i = 1,\dots,k\} $$ the joint orbit of the matrices $A_1,\dots,A_k$. We study the set of diagonals or partial diagonals of matrices in $\mathcal{O}(A_1,\dots,A_k)$, {\it i.e.}, the set of vectors $(d_1,\dots,d_r)$ whose entries lie in the $(1,j_1),\dots,(r,j_r)$ positions of a matrix in $\mathcal{O}(A_1, \dots,A_k)$ for some distinct column indices $j_1,\dots,j_r$. In many cases, complete description of these sets is given in terms of the inequalities involving the singular values of $A_1,\dots,A_k$. We also characterize those extreme matrices for which the equality cases hold. Furthermore, some convexity properties of the joint orbits are considered. These extend many classical results on matrix inequalities, and answer some questions by Miranda. Related results on the joint orbit $\mathcal{O}(A_1,\dots,A_k)$ of complex Hermitian matrices under the action of unitary similarities are also discussed.
