Mahler Measures as Linear Combinations of $L$values of Multiple Modular Forms
We study the Mahler measures of certain families of Laurent
polynomials in two and three variables. Each of the known Mahler
measure formulas for these families involves $L$values of at most one
newform and/or at most one quadratic character. In this paper, we
show, either rigorously or numerically, that the Mahler measures of
some polynomials are related to $L$values of multiple newforms and
quadratic characters simultaneously. The results suggest that the
number of modular $L$values appearing in the formulas significantly
depends on the shape of the algebraic value of the parameter chosen
for each polynomial. As a consequence, we also obtain new formulas
relating special values of hypergeometric series evaluated at
algebraic numbers to special values of $L$functions.

Values of Twisted Tensor $L$functions of Automorphic Forms Over Imaginary Quadratic Fields
Let $K$ be a complex quadratic extension of $\mathbb{Q}$ and let $\mathbb{A}_K$
denote the adeles of $K$.
We find special values at all of the critical points of twisted
tensor $L$functions attached to cohomological cuspforms on $GL_2(\mathbb{A}_K)$,
and establish Galois equivariance of the values.
To investigate the values, we determine the archimedean factors
of a class of integral representations of these $L$functions,
thus proving a conjecture due to Ghate. We also investigate
analytic properties of these $L$functions, such as their functional
equations.

An Explicit Polynomial Expression for a $q$Analogue of the 9$j$ Symbols
Using standard transformation and summation formulas for basic
hypergeometric series we obtain an explicit polynomial form of the
$q$analogue of the 9$j$ symbols, introduced by the author in a
recent publication. We also consider a limiting case in which the
9$j$ symbol factors into two Hahn polynomials. The same
factorization occurs in another limit case of the corresponding
$q$analogue.

Algebraic Evaluations of Some Euler Integrals, Duplication Formulae for Appell's Hypergeometric Function $F_1$, and Brownian Variations
Explicit evaluations of the symmetric Euler integral $\int_0^1
u^{\alpha} (1u)^{\alpha} f(u) \,du$ are obtained for some particular
functions $f$. These evaluations are related to duplication formulae
for Appell's hypergeometric function $F_1$ which give reductions of
$F_1 (\alpha, \beta, \beta, 2 \alpha, y, z)$ in terms of more
elementary functions for arbitrary $\beta$ with $z = y/(y1)$ and for
$\beta = \alpha + \half$ with arbitrary $y$, $z$. These duplication
formulae generalize the evaluations of some symmetric Euler integrals
implied by the following result: if a standard Brownian bridge is
sampled at time $0$, time $1$, and at $n$ independent random times
with uniform distribution on $[0,1]$, then the broken line
approximation to the bridge obtained from these $n+2$ values has a
total variation whose mean square is $n(n+1)/(2n+1)$.

Some summation theorems and transformations for $q$series
We introduce a double sum extension of a very wellpoised series and
extend to this the transformations of Bailey and Sears as well as the
${}_6\f_5$ summation formula of F.~H.~Jackson and the $q$Dixon sum.
We also give $q$integral representations of the double sum.
Generalizations of the NassrallahRahman integral are also found.
