The BishopPhelpsBollobÃ¡s property for compact operators
We study the BishopPhelpsBollobÃ¡s property (BPBp for short)
for compact operators. We present some abstract techniques which
allows to carry the BPBp for compact operators from sequence
spaces to function spaces. As main applications, we prove the
following results. Let $X$, $Y$ be Banach spaces. If $(c_0,Y)$
has the BPBp for compact operators, then so do $(C_0(L),Y)$ for
every locally compact Hausdorff topological space $L$ and $(X,Y)$
whenever $X^*$ is isometrically isomorphic to $\ell_1$.
If $X^*$ has the RadonNikodÃ½m property and $(\ell_1(X),Y)$
has the BPBp for compact operators, then so does $(L_1(\mu,X),Y)$
for every positive measure $\mu$; as a consequence, $(L_1(\mu,X),Y)$
has the the BPBp for compact operators when $X$ and $Y$ are finitedimensional
or $Y$ is a Hilbert space and $X=c_0$ or $X=L_p(\nu)$ for any
positive measure $\nu$ and $1\lt p\lt \infty$.
For $1\leq p \lt \infty$, if $(X,\ell_p(Y))$ has the BPBp for compact
operators, then so does $(X,L_p(\mu,Y))$ for every positive measure
$\mu$ such that $L_1(\mu)$ is infinitedimensional. If $(X,Y)$
has the BPBp for compact operators, then so do $(X,L_\infty(\mu,Y))$
for every $\sigma$finite positive measure $\mu$ and $(X,C(K,Y))$
for every compact Hausdorff topological space $K$.

$L^q$ norms of Fekete and related polynomials
A Littlewood polynomial is a polynomial in $\mathbb{C}[z]$ having all
of its coefficients in $\{1,1\}$. There are various old unsolved
problems, mostly due to Littlewood and ErdÅs, that ask for
Littlewood polynomials that provide a good approximation to a
function that is constant on the complex unit circle, and in
particular have small $L^q$ norm on the complex unit circle.
We consider the Fekete polynomials
\[
f_p(z)=\sum_{j=1}^{p1}(j\,\,p)\,z^j,
\]
where $p$ is an odd prime and $(\,\cdot\,\,p)$ is the Legendre
symbol (so that $z^{1}f_p(z)$ is a Littlewood polynomial). We
give explicit and recursive formulas for the limit of the ratio
of $L^q$ and $L^2$ norm of $f_p$ when $q$ is an even positive
integer and $p\to\infty$. To our knowledge, these are the first
results that give these limiting values for specific sequences
of nontrivial Littlewood polynomials and infinitely many $q$.
Similar results are given for polynomials obtained by cyclically
permuting the coefficients of Fekete polynomials and for Littlewood
polynomials whose coefficients are obtained from additive characters
of finite fields. These results vastly generalise earlier results
on the $L^4$ norm of these polynomials.

Tilings of normed spaces
By a tiling of a topological linear space $X$ we mean a
covering of $X$ by at least two closed convex sets,
called tiles, whose nonempty interiors are
pairwise disjoint.
Study of tilings of infinitedimensional spaces initiated in
the
1980's with pioneer papers by V. Klee.
We prove some general properties of tilings of locally convex
spaces,
and then apply these results to study existence of tilings of
normed and Banach spaces by tiles possessing
certain smoothness or rotundity properties. For a Banach space
$X$,
our main results are the following.
1. $X$ admits no tiling by FrÃ©chet smooth bounded tiles.
2. If $X$ is locally uniformly rotund (LUR), it does not admit
any tiling by balls.
3. On the other hand, some $\ell_1(\Gamma)$ spaces, $\Gamma$
uncountable, do admit
a tiling by pairwise disjoint LUR bounded tiles.

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.

Uniform Convexity and BishopPhelpsBollobÃ¡s Property
A new characterization of the uniform convexity of
Banach space is obtained in the sense of BishopPhelpsBollobÃ¡s
theorem. It is also proved that the couple of Banach spaces $(X,Y)$
has the bishopphelpsbollobÃ¡s property for every banach space $y$
when $X$ is uniformly convex. As a corollary, we show that the
BishopPhelpsBollobÃ¡s theorem holds for bilinear forms on
$\ell_p\times \ell_q$ ($1\lt p, q\lt \infty$).

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
and convolution of compactly supported Radon measures.

Normality of Maximal Orbit Closures for Euclidean Quivers
Let $\Delta$ be an Euclidean quiver. We prove that the closures of

are normal and CohenMacaulay (even complete intersections).
Moreover, we give a generalization of this result for the tame
concealedcanonical algebras.

PFA$(S)[S]$: More Mutually Consistent Topological Consequences of $PFA$ and $V=L$
Extending the work of Larson and Todorcevic,
we show there
is a model of set theory in which normal spaces are collectionwise
Hausdorff if they are either first countable or locally compact, and
yet there are no first countable $L$spaces or compact
$S$spaces. The model is one of the form PFA$(S)[S]$, where $S$
is a coherent Souslin tree.

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.

Petits points d'une surface
Pour toute sousvari\'et\'e g\'eom\'etriquement irr\'eductible $V$
du grou\pe multiplicatif
$\mathbb{G}_m^n$, on sait qu'en dehors d'un nombre fini de
translat\'es de tores exceptionnels
inclus dans $V$, tous les points sont de hauteur minor\'ee par une
certaine quantit\'e $q(V)^{1}>0$. On conna\^it de plus une borne
sup\'erieure pour la somme des degr\'es de ces translat\'es de
tores pour des valeurs de $q(V)$ polynomiales en le degr\'e de $V$.
Ceci n'est pas le cas si l'on exige une minoration quasioptimale
pour la hauteur des points de $V$, essentiellement lin\'eaire en l'inverse du degr\'e.
Nous apportons ici une r\'eponse partielle \`a ce probl\`eme\,: nous
donnons une majoration de la somme des degr\'es de ces translat\'es de
soustores de codimension $1$ d'une hypersurface $V$. Les r\'esultats,

Matrices Whose Norms Are Determined by Their Actions on Decreasing Sequences
Let $A=(a_{j,k})_{j,k \ge 1}$ be a nonnegative matrix. In this
paper, we characterize those $A$ for which $\A\_{E, F}$ are
determined by their actions on decreasing sequences, where $E$ and
$F$ are suitable normed Riesz spaces of sequences. In particular,
our results can apply to the following spaces: $\ell_p$, $d(w,p)$,
and $\ell_p(w)$. The results established here generalize
ones given by Bennett; Chen, Luor, and Ou; Jameson; and
Jameson and Lashkaripour.

Operator Amenability of the Fourier Algebra in the $\cb$Multiplier Norm
Let $G$ be a locally compact group, and let $A_{\cb}(G)$ denote the
closure of $A(G)$, the Fourier algebra of $G$, in the space of completely
bounded multipliers of $A(G)$. If $G$ is a weakly amenable, discrete group
such that $\cstar(G)$ is residually finitedimensional, we show that
$A_{\cb}(G)$ is operator amenable. In particular,
$A_{\cb}(\free_2)$ is operator amenable even though $\free_2$, the free
group in two generators, is not an amenable group. Moreover, we show that
if $G$ is a discrete group such that $A_{\cb}(G)$ is operator amenable,
a closed ideal of $A(G)$ is weakly completely complemented in $A(G)$
if and only if it has an approximate identity bounded in the $\cb$multiplier
norm.

Finding and Excluding $b$ary MachinType Individual Digit Formulae
Constants with formulae of the form treated by D.~Bailey,
P.~Borwein, and S.~Plouffe (\emph{BBP formulae} to a given base $b$) have
interesting computational properties, such as allowing single
digits in their base $b$ expansion to be independently computed,
and there are hints that they
should be \emph{normal} numbers, {\em i.e.,} that their base $b$ digits
are randomly distributed. We study a formally limited subset of BBP
formulae, which we call \emph{Machintype BBP formulae}, for which it
is relatively easy to determine whether or not a given constant
$\kappa$ has a Machintype BBP formula. In particular, given $b \in
\mathbb{N}$, $b>2$, $b$ not a proper power, a $b$ary Machintype
BBP arctangent formula for $\kappa$ is a formula of the form $\kappa
= \sum_{m} a_m \arctan(b^{m})$, $a_m \in \mathbb{Q}$, while when
$b=2$, we also allow terms of the form $a_m \arctan(1/(12^m))$. Of
particular interest, we show that $\pi$ has no Machintype BBP
arctangent formula when $b \neq 2$. To the best of our knowledge,
when there is no Machintype BBP formula for a constant then no BBP
formula of any form is known for that constant.

ReprÃ©sentations irrÃ©ductibles bornÃ©es des groupes de Lie exponentiels
Let $G$ be a solvable exponential Lie group. We characterize all the
continuous topologically irreducible bounded representations $(T,
\calU)$ of $G$ on a Banach space $\calU$ by giving a $G$orbit in
$\frn^*$ ($\frn$ being the nilradical of $\frg$), a topologically
irreducible representation of $L^1(\RR^n, \o)$, for a certain weight
$\o$ and a certain $n \in \NN$, and a topologically simple extension
norm. If $G$ is not symmetric, \ie, if the weight $\o$ is
exponential, we get a new type of representations which are
fundamentally different from the induced representations.

Higher Order Scattering on Asymptotically Euclidean Manifolds
We develop a scattering theory for perturbations of powers of the
Laplacian on asymptotically Euclidean manifolds. The (absolute)
scattering matrix is shown to be a Fourier integral operator
associated to the geodesic flow at time $\pi$ on the boundary.
Furthermore, it is shown that on $\Real^n$ the asymptotics of certain
shortrange perturbations of $\Delta^k$ can be recovered from the
scattering matrix at a finite number of energies.

Separable Reduction and Supporting Properties of FrÃ©chetLike Normals in Banach Spaces
We develop a method of separable reduction for Fr\'{e}chetlike
normals and $\epsilon$normals to arbitrary sets in general Banach
spaces. This method allows us to reduce certain problems involving
such normals in nonseparable spaces to the separable case. It is
particularly helpful in Asplund spaces where every separable subspace
admits a Fr\'{e}chet smooth renorm. As an applicaton of the separable
reduction method in Asplund spaces, we provide a new direct proof of a
nonconvex extension of the celebrated BishopPhelps density theorem.
Moreover, in this way we establish new characterizations of Asplund
spaces in terms of $\epsilon$normals.
