Bilinear and quadratic forms on rational modules of split reductive groups
The representation theory of semisimple algebraic groups over
the complex numbers (equivalently, semisimple complex Lie algebras
or Lie groups, or real compact Lie groups) and the question of
whether a
given complex representation is symplectic or orthogonal has
been solved since at least the 1950s. Similar results for Weyl
modules of split reductive groups over fields of characteristic
different from 2 hold by
using similar proofs. This paper considers analogues of these
results for simple, induced and tilting modules of split reductive
groups over fields of prime characteristic as well as a complete
answer for Weyl modules over fields of characteristic 2.

Kernels in the category of formal group laws
Fontaine described the category of formal groups over the ring
of Witt vectors over a finite field
of characteristic $p$ with the aid of triples consisting of the
module of logarithms,
the DieudonnÃ© module and the morphism from the former to the
latter. We propose
an explicit construction for the kernels in this category in
term of Fontaine's triples.
The construction is applied to the formal norm homomorphism in
the case of an unramified extension
of $\mathbb{Q}_p$ and of a totally ramified extension of degree less
or equal than $p$. A similar
consideration applied to a global extension allows us to establish
the existence of a strict
isomorphism between the formal norm torus and a formal group
law coming from $L$series.

Metaplectic Tensor Products for Automorphic Representation of $\widetilde{GL}(r)$
Let $M=\operatorname{GL}_{r_1}\times\cdots\times\operatorname{GL}_{r_k}\subseteq\operatorname{GL}_r$ be a Levi
subgroup of $\operatorname{GL}_r$, where $r=r_1+\cdots+r_k$, and $\widetilde{M}$ its metaplectic preimage
in the $n$fold metaplectic cover $\widetilde{\operatorname{GL}}_r$ of $\operatorname{GL}_r$. For automorphic
representations $\pi_1,\dots,\pi_k$ of $\widetilde{\operatorname{GL}}_{r_1}(\mathbb{A}),\dots,\widetilde{\operatorname{GL}}_{r_k}(\mathbb{A})$,
we construct (under a certain
technical assumption, which is always satisfied when $n=2$) an
automorphic representation $\pi$
of $\widetilde{M}(\mathbb{A})$ which can be considered as the ``tensor product'' of the
representations $\pi_1,\dots,\pi_k$. This is
the global analogue of the metaplectic tensor product
defined by P. Mezo in the sense that locally at each place $v$,
$\pi_v$ is equivalent to the local metaplectic tensor product of
$\pi_{1,v},\dots,\pi_{k,v}$ defined by Mezo. Then we show that if all
of $\pi_i$ are cuspidal (resp. squareintegrable modulo center), then
the metaplectic tensor product is cuspidal (resp. squareintegrable
modulo center). We also show that (both
locally and globally) the metaplectic tensor product behaves in the
expected way under the action of a Weyl group element, and show the
compatibility with parabolic inductions.

A Free Product Formula for the Sofic Dimension
It is proved that if $G=G_1*_{G_3}G_2$ is free product of probability
measure preserving $s$regular ergodic discrete groupoids amalgamated
over an amenable subgroupoid $G_3$, then the sofic dimension $s(G)$
satisfies the equality
\[
s(G)=\mathfrak{h}(G_1^0)s(G_1)+\mathfrak{h}(G_2^0)s(G_2)\mathfrak{h}(G_3^0)s(G_3)
\]
where $\mathfrak{h}$ is the normalized Haar measure on $G$.

Unitary Eigenvarieties at Isobaric Points
In this article we
study the geometry of the eigenvarieties of unitary groups at points
corresponding to tempered nonstable representations with an
antiordinary (a.k.a evil) refinement. We prove that, except in the
case the Galois representation attached to the automorphic form is a
sum of characters, the eigenvariety is nonsmooth at such a point,
and that (under some additional hypotheses) its tangent space is big
enough to account for all the relevant Selmer group. We also study the
local reducibility locus
at those points, proving that in general, in contrast with the case of
the eigencurve, it is a proper subscheme of the fiber of the
eigenvariety over the weight space.

Expression d'un facteur epsilon de paire par une formule intÃ©grale
Let $E/F$ be a quadratic extension of $p$adic fields and
let $d$, $m$ be nonnegative integers of distinct parities. Fix
admissible irreducible tempered representations $\pi$ and $\sigma$ of
$GL_d(E)$ and $GL_m(E)$ respectively. We assume that $\pi$ and
$\sigma$ are conjugatedual. That is to say $\pi\simeq \pi^{\vee,c}$
and $\sigma\simeq \sigma^{\vee,c}$ where $c$ is the non trivial
$F$automorphism of $E$. This implies, we can extend $\pi$ to an
unitary representation $\tilde{\pi}$ of a nonconnected group
$GL_d(E)\rtimes \{1,\theta\}$. Define $\tilde{\sigma}$ the same
way. We state and prove an integral formula for
$\epsilon(1/2,\pi\times \sigma,\psi_E)$ involving the characters of
$\tilde{\pi}$ and $\tilde{\sigma}$. This formula is related to the
local GanGrossPrasad conjecture for unitary groups.

On a Sumset Conjecture of ErdÅs
ErdÅs conjectured that for any set $A\subseteq \mathbb{N}$
with positive
lower asymptotic density, there are infinite sets $B,C\subseteq
\mathbb{N}$
such that $B+C\subseteq A$. We verify ErdÅs' conjecture in
the case that $A$ has Banach density exceeding $\frac{1}{2}$.
As a consequence, we prove that, for $A\subseteq \mathbb{N}$
with
positive Banach density (a much weaker assumption than positive
lower density), we can find infinite $B,C\subseteq \mathbb{N}$
such
that $B+C$ is contained in the union of $A$ and a translate of
$A$. Both of the aforementioned
results are generalized to arbitrary countable
amenable groups. We also provide a positive solution to ErdÅs'
conjecture for subsets of the natural numbers that are pseudorandom.

Geometric Spectra and Commensurability
The work of Reid, ChinburgHamiltonLongReid,
PrasadRapinchuk, and the author with Reid have demonstrated that
geodesics or totally geodesic submanifolds can sometimes be used to
determine the commensurability class of an arithmetic manifold. The
main results of this article show that generalizations of these
results to other arithmetic manifolds will require a wide range of
data. Specifically, we prove that certain incommensurable arithmetic
manifolds arising from the semisimple Lie groups of the form
$(\operatorname{SL}(d,\mathbf{R}))^r \times
(\operatorname{SL}(d,\mathbf{C}))^s$ have the same commensurability
classes of totally geodesic submanifolds coming from a fixed
field. This construction is algebraic and shows the failure of
determining, in general, a central simple algebra from subalgebras
over a fixed field. This, in turn, can be viewed in terms of forms of
$\operatorname{SL}_d$ and the failure of determining the form via certain classes of
algebraic subgroups.

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.

Motion in a Symmetric Potential on the Hyperbolic Plane
We study the motion of a particle in the hyperbolic plane (embedded in Minkowski space), under the action of a potential that depends only on one variable. This problem is the analogous to the spherical pendulum in a unidirectional force field. However, for the discussion of the hyperbolic plane one has to distinguish three inequivalent cases, depending on the direction of the force field. Symmetry reduction, with respect to groups that are not necessarily compact or even reductive, is carried out by way of Poisson varieties and Hilbert maps. For each case the dynamics is discussed, with special attention to linear potentials.

Convolution of Trace Class Operators over Locally Compact Quantum Groups
We study locally compact quantum groups $\mathbb{G}$ through the
convolution algebras $L_1(\mathbb{G})$ and $(T(L_2(\mathbb{G})),
\triangleright)$. We prove that the reduced quantum group
$C^*$algebra $C_0(\mathbb{G})$ can be recovered from the convolution
$\triangleright$ by showing that the right $T(L_2(\mathbb{G}))$module
$\langle K(L_2(\mathbb{G}) \triangleright T(L_2(\mathbb{G}))\rangle$ is
equal to $C_0(\mathbb{G})$. On the other hand, we show that the left
$T(L_2(\mathbb{G}))$module $\langle T(L_2(\mathbb{G}))\triangleright
K(L_2(\mathbb{G})\rangle$ is isomorphic to the reduced crossed product
$C_0(\widehat{\mathbb{G}}) \,_r\!\ltimes C_0(\mathbb{G})$, and hence is
a much larger $C^*$subalgebra of $B(L_2(\mathbb{G}))$.
We establish a natural isomorphism between the completely bounded
right multiplier algebras of $L_1(\mathbb{G})$ and
$(T(L_2(\mathbb{G})), \triangleright)$, and settle two invariance
problems associated with the representation theorem of
JungeNeufangRuan (2009). We characterize regularity and discreteness
of the quantum group $\mathbb{G}$ in terms of continuity properties of
the convolution $\triangleright$ on $T(L_2(\mathbb{G}))$. We prove
that if $\mathbb{G}$ is semiregular, then the space
$\langle T(L_2(\mathbb{G}))\triangleright B(L_2(\mathbb{G}))\rangle$ of right
$\mathbb{G}$continuous operators on $L_2(\mathbb{G})$, which was
introduced by Bekka (1990) for $L_{\infty}(G)$, is a unital $C^*$subalgebra
of $B(L_2(\mathbb{G}))$. In the representation framework formulated by
NeufangRuanSpronk (2008) and JungeNeufangRuan, we show that the
dual properties of compactness and discreteness can be characterized
simultaneously via automatic normality of quantum group bimodule maps
on $B(L_2(\mathbb{G}))$. We also characterize some commutation
relations of completely bounded multipliers of $(T(L_2(\mathbb{G})),
\triangleright)$ over $B(L_2(\mathbb{G}))$.

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.

A Stochastic Difference Equation with Stationary Noise on Groups
We consider the stochastic difference equation $$\eta _k = \xi _k
\phi (\eta _{k1}), \quad k \in \mathbb Z $$ on a locally compact group $G$
where $\phi$ is an automorphism of $G$, $\xi _k$ are given $G$valued
random variables and $\eta _k$ are unknown $G$valued random variables.
This equation was considered by Tsirelson and Yor on
onedimensional torus. We consider the case when $\xi _k$ have a
common law $\mu$ and prove that if $G$ is a distal group and $\phi$
is a distal automorphism of $G$ and if the equation has a solution,
then extremal solutions of the equation are in oneone
correspondence with points on the coset space $K\backslash G$ for
some compact subgroup $K$ of $G$ such that $\mu$ is supported on
$Kz= z\phi (K)$ for any $z$ in the support of $\mu$. We also provide
a necessary and sufficient condition for the existence of solutions
to the equation.

In this paper, we give several pictorial fractal
representations of the ample or KÃ¤hler cone for surfaces in a

described by smooth $(2,2,2)$ forms in ${\mathbb P^1\times\mathbb P^1\times \mathbb P^1}$ defined over a
sufficiently large number field $K$ that have a line parallel to
one of the axes and have Picard number four. We relate the
Hausdorff dimension of this fractal to the asymptotic growth of
orbits of curves under the action of the surface's group of
automorphisms. We experimentally estimate the Hausdorff dimension
of the fractal to be $1.296 \pm .010$.

Degenerate pLaplacian Operators and Hardy Type Inequalities on
HType Groups
Let $\mathbb G$ be a steptwo nilpotent group of Htype with Lie algebra $\mathfrak G=V\oplus \mathfrak t$. We define a class of vector fields $X=\{X_j\}$ on $\mathbb G$ depending on a real parameter $k\ge 1$, and we consider the corresponding $p$Laplacian operator $L_{p,k} u= \operatorname{div}_X (\nabla_{X} u^{p2} \nabla_X u)$. For $k=1$ the vector fields $X=\{X_j\}$ are the left invariant vector fields corresponding to an orthonormal basis of $V$; for $\mathbb G$ being the Heisenberg group the vector fields are the Greiner fields. In this paper we obtain the fundamental solution for the operator $L_{p,k}$ and as an application, we get a Hardy type inequality associated with $X$.

Monodromy Groups and SelfInvariance
For every polytope $\mathcal{P}$ there is the universal regular
polytope of the same rank as $\mathcal{P}$ corresponding to the
Coxeter group $\mathcal{C} =[\infty, \dots, \infty]$. For a given
automorphism $d$ of $\mathcal{C}$, using monodromy groups, we
construct a combinatorial structure $\mathcal{P}^d$. When
$\mathcal{P}^d$ is a polytope isomorphic to $\mathcal{P}$ we say that
$\mathcal{P}$ is selfinvariant with respect to $d$, or
$d$invariant. We develop algebraic tools for investigating these
operations on polytopes, and in particular give a criterion on the
existence of a $d$\nobreakdashauto\morphism of a given order. As an application,
we analyze properties of selfdual edgetransitive polyhedra and
polyhedra with two flagorbits. We investigate properties of medials
of such polyhedra. Furthermore, we give an example of a selfdual
equivelar polyhedron which contains no polarity (duality of order
2). We also extend the concept of Petrie dual to higher dimensions,
and we show how it can be dealt with using selfinvariance.

some sense. As a consequence, we answer a question of Lau and
\"Ulger, showing that for the Fourier algebra $A(G)$ of a locally

Characterizing Complete Erd\H os Space
The space now known as {\em complete Erd\H os
space\/} $\cerdos$ was introduced by Paul Erd\H os in 1940 as the
closed subspace of the Hilbert space $\ell^2$ consisting of all
vectors such that every coordinate is in the convergent sequence
$\{0\}\cup\{1/n:n\in\N\}$. In a solution to a problem posed by Lex G.
Oversteegen we present simple and useful topological
characterizations of $\cerdos$.
As an application we determine the class
of factors of $\cerdos$. In another application we determine
precisely which of the spaces that can be constructed in the Banach
spaces $\ell^p$ according to the `Erd\H os method' are homeomorphic
to $\cerdos$. A novel application states that if $I$ is a
Polishable $F_\sigma$ideal on $\omega$, then $I$ with the Polish
topology is homeomorphic to either $\Z$, the Cantor set $2^\omega$,
$\Z\times2^\omega$, or $\cerdos$. This last result answers a
question that was asked
by Stevo Todor{\v{c}}evi{\'c}.
