Distributions invariantes sur les groupes rÃ©ductifs quasidÃ©ployÃ©s Soit $F$ un corps local non archim\'edien, et $G$ le groupe des
$F$points d'un groupe r\'eductif connexe quasid\'eploy\'e d\'efini sur $F$.
Dans cet article, on s'int\'eresse aux distributions sur $G$ invariantes
par conjugaison, et \`a l'espace de leurs restrictions \`a l'alg\`ebre de
Hecke $\mathcal{H}$ des fonctions sur $G$ \`a support compact
biinvariantes par un sousgroupe d'Iwahori $I$ donn\'e. On montre tout
d'abord que les valeurs d'une telle distribution sur $\mathcal{H}$
sont enti\`erement d\'etermin\'ees par sa restriction au sousespace de
dimension finie des \'el\'ements de $\mathcal{H}$ \`a support dans la
r\'eunion des sousgroupes parahoriques de $G$ contenant $I$. On utilise
ensuite cette propri\'et\'e pour montrer, moyennant certaines conditions
sur $G$, que cet espace est engendr\'e d'une part par certaines
int\'egrales orbitales semisimples, d'autre part par les int\'egrales
orbitales unipotentes, en montrant tout d'abord des r\'esultats
analogues sur les groupes finis.

Constructing Representations of Finite Simple Groups and Covers Let $G$ be a finite group and $\chi$ be an irreducible character of $G$. An efficient
and simple method to construct representations of finite groups is applicable
whenever $G$ has a subgroup $H$ such that $\chi_H$
has a linear constituent with multiplicity $1$.
In this paper we show (with a few exceptions) that if $G$
is a simple group or a covering group of a simple group and
$\chi$ is an irreducible character of $G$ of degree less than 32,
then there exists a subgroup $H$ (often a Sylow subgroup) of $G$
such that $\chi_H$ has a linear constituent with multiplicity $1$.

Branching Rules for Principal Series Representations of $SL(2)$ over a $p$adic Field We explicitly describe the decomposition into irreducibles of
the restriction of the principal
series representations of $SL(2,k)$, for $k$ a $p$adic field,
to each of its two maximal compact subgroups (up to conjugacy).
We identify these irreducible subrepresentations in the
Kirillovtype classification
of Shalika. We go on to explicitly describe the decomposition
of the reducible principal series of $SL(2,k)$ in terms of the
restrictions of its irreducible constituents to a maximal compact
subgroup.

Some Convexity Results for the Cartan Decomposition In this paper, we consider the set $\mathcal{S} = a(e^X K e^Y)$
where $a(g)$ is the abelian part in the Cartan decomposition of
$g$. This is exactly the support of the measure intervening in the
product formula for the spherical functions on symmetric spaces of
noncompact type. We give a simple description of that support in
the case of $\SL(3,\mathbf{F})$ where $\mathbf{F} = \mathbf{R}$,
$\mathbf{C}$ or $\mathbf{H}$. In particular, we show that
$\mathcal{S}$ is convex.
We also give an application of our result to the description of
singular values of a product of two arbitrary matrices with
prescribed singular values.

Structure Theory of Totally Disconnected Locally Compact Groups via Graphs and Permutations Willis's structure theory of totally disconnected locally compact groups
is investigated in the context of permutation actions. This leads to new
interpretations of the basic concepts in the theory and also to new proofs
of the fundamental theorems and to several new results. The treatment of
Willis's theory is selfcontained and full proofs are given of all the
fundamental results.

Chern Characters of Fourier Modules Let $A_\theta$ denote the rotation algebrathe universal $C^\ast$algebra
generated by unitaries $U,V$ satisfying $VU=e^{2\pi i\theta}UV$, where
$\theta$ is a fixed real number. Let $\sigma$ denote the Fourier
automorphism of $A_\theta$ defined by $U\mapsto V$, $V\mapsto U^{1}$,
and let $B_\theta = A_\theta \rtimes_\sigma \mathbb{Z}/4\mathbb{Z}$ denote
the associated $C^\ast$crossed product. It is shown that there is a
canonical inclusion $\mathbb{Z}^9 \hookrightarrow K_0(B_\theta)$ for each
$\theta$ given by nine canonical modules. The unbounded trace functionals
of $B_\theta$ (yielding the Chern characters here) are calculated to obtain
the cyclic cohomology group of order zero $\HC^0(B_\theta)$ when
$\theta$ is irrational. The Chern characters of the nine modulesand more
importantly, the Fourier moduleare computed and shown to involve techniques
from the theory of Jacobi's theta functions. Also derived are explicit
equations connecting unbounded traces across strong Morita equivalence, which
turn out to be noncommutative extensions of certain theta function equations.
These results provide the basis for showing that for a dense $G_\delta$ set
of values of $\theta$ one has $K_0(B_\theta)\cong\mathbb{Z}^9$ and is
generated by the nine classes constructed here.

Partial Characters and Signed Quotient Hypergroups If $G$ is a closed subgroup of a commutative hypergroup $K$, then the
coset space $K/G$ carries a quotient hypergroup structure. In this
paper, we study related convolution structures on $K/G$ coming from
deformations of the quotient hypergroup structure by certain functions
on $K$ which we call partial characters with respect to $G$. They are
usually not probabilitypreserving, but lead to socalled signed
hypergroups on $K/G$. A first example is provided by the Laguerre
convolution on $\left[ 0,\infty \right[$, which is interpreted as a
signed quotient hypergroup convolution derived from the Heisenberg
group. Moreover, signed hypergroups associated with the Gelfand pair
$\bigl( U(n,1), U(n) \bigr)$ are discussed.

Shape fibrations, multivalued maps and shape groups The notion of shape fibration with the near lifting of near
multivalued paths property is studied. The relation of these
mapswhich agree with shape fibrations having totally disconnected
fiberswith Hurewicz fibrations with the unique path lifting
property is completely settled. Some results concerning homotopy and
shape groups are presented for shape fibrations with the near lifting
of near multivalued paths property. It is shown that for this class of
shape fibrations the existence of liftings of a fine multivalued map,
is equivalent to an algebraic problem relative to the homotopy, shape
or strong shape groups associated.
