Characterizations of Continuous and Discrete $q$Ultraspherical Polynomials
We characterize the continuous $q$ultraspherical polynomials in
terms of the special form of the coefficients in the expansion
$\mathcal{D}_q P_n(x)$ in the basis $\{P_n(x)\}$, $\mathcal{D}_q$
being the AskeyWilson divided difference operator. The polynomials
are assumed to be symmetric, and the connection coefficients
are multiples of the reciprocal of the square of the $L^2$ norm of
the polynomials. A similar characterization is given for the discrete
$q$ultraspherical polynomials. A new proof of the evaluation of
the connection coefficients for big $q$Jacobi polynomials is given.

BMOEstimates for Maximal Operators via Approximations of the Identity with NonDoubling Measures
Let $\mu$ be a nonnegative Radon measure
on $\mathbb{R}^d$ that satisfies the growth condition that there exist
constants $C_0>0$ and $n\in(0,d]$ such that for all $x\in\mathbb{R}^d$ and
$r>0$, ${\mu(B(x,\,r))\le C_0r^n}$, where $B(x,r)$ is the open ball
centered at $x$ and having radius $r$. In this paper, the authors prove
that if $f$ belongs to the $\textrm {BMO}$type space $\textrm{RBMO}(\mu)$ of Tolsa, then
the homogeneous maximal function $\dot{\mathcal{M}}_S(f)$ (when $\mathbb{R}^d$ is not an
initial cube) and the inhomogeneous maximal function
$\mathcal{M}_S(f)$ (when $\mathbb{R}^d$ is an initial cube)
associated with a given approximation of the identity $S$ of Tolsa are
either infinite everywhere or finite almost everywhere,
and in the latter case, $\dot{\mathcal{M}}_S$ and $\mathcal{M}_S$ are bounded from
$\textrm{RBMO}(\mu)$ to the $\textrm {BLO}$type
space $\textrm{RBLO}(\mu)$. The authors also prove that the inhomogeneous
maximal operator $\mathcal{M}_S$ is bounded from the local
$\textrm {BMO}$type space $\textrm{rbmo}(\mu)$
to the local $\textrm {BLO}$type space $\textrm{rblo}(\mu)$.

Approximation and Similarity Classification of Stably Finitely Strongly Irreducible Decomposable Operators
Let $\mathcal H$ be a complex separable Hilbert space and ${\mathcal L}({\mathcal H})$ denote the collection of bounded linear operators on ${\mathcal H}$. In this paper, we show that for any operator $A\in{\mathcal L}({\mathcal H})$, there exists a stably finitely (SI) decomposable operator $A_\epsilon$, such that $\AA_{\epsilon}\<\epsilon$ and ${\mathcal{\mathcal A}'(A_{\epsilon})}/\operatorname{rad} {{\mathcal A}'(A_{\epsilon})}$ is commutative, where $\operatorname{rad}{{\mathcal A}'(A_{\epsilon})}$ is the Jacobson radical of ${{\mathcal A}'(A_{\epsilon})}$. Moreover, we give a similarity classification of the stably finitely decomposable operators that generalizes the result on similarity classification of CowenDouglas operators given by C. L. Jiang.

The General Definition of the Complex MongeAmpÃ¨re Operator on Compact KÃ¤hler Manifolds
We introduce a wide subclass ${\mathcal F}(X,\omega)$ of
quasiplurisubharmonic functions in a compact KÃ¤hler manifold, on

convergence theorem is valid. We also prove that ${\mathcal F}(X,\omega)$
is a convex cone and includes all quasiplurisubharmonic functions
that are in the Cegrell class.

On the Local Lifting Properties of Operator Spaces
In this paper, we mainly study operator spaces which have the
locally lifting property (LLP). The dual of any ternary ring of operators is shown to
satisfy the strongly local reflexivity, and this is used to prove
that strongly local reflexivity holds also for operator spaces
which have the LLP. Several homological characterizations of the
LLP and weak expectation property are given. We also prove that for any operator space
$V$, $V^{**}$ has the LLP if and only if $V$ has the LLP and
$V^{*}$ is exact.

Bounded Hankel Products on the Bergman Space of the Polydisk
We consider the problem of determining for which square integrable
functions $f$ and $g$ on the polydisk the densely defined Hankel
product $H_{f}H_g^\ast$ is bounded on the Bergman space of the
polydisk. Furthermore, we obtain similar results for the mixed
Haplitz products $H_{g}T_{\bar{f}}$ and $T_{f}H_{g}^{*}$, where $f$
and $g$ are square integrable on the polydisk and $f$ is analytic.

$H^\infty$ Functional Calculus and MikhlinType Multiplier Conditions
Let $T$ be a sectorial operator. It is known that the existence of a
bounded (suitably scaled) $H^\infty$ calculus for $T$, on every
sector containing the positive halfline, is equivalent to the
existence of a bounded functional calculus on the Besov algebra
$\Lambda_{\infty,1}^\alpha(\R^+)$. Such an algebra
includes functions defined by Mikhlintype conditions and so the
Besov calculus can be seen as a result on multipliers for $T$. In
this paper, we use fractional derivation to analyse in detail the
relationship between $\Lambda_{\infty,1}^\alpha$ and Banach algebras
of Mikhlintype. As a result, we obtain a new version of the quoted
equivalence.

CalderÃ³nZygmund Operators Associated to Ultraspherical Expansions
We define the higher order Riesz transforms and the LittlewoodPaley

associated to the differential operator $L_\l f(\theta)=f''(\theta)2\l\cot\theta
f'(\theta)+\l^2f(\theta)$. We prove that these operators are

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.

Growth and Zeros of the Zeta Function for Hyperbolic Rational Maps
This paper describes new results on the growth and zeros of the Ruelle
zeta function for the Julia set of a hyperbolic rational map. It is
shown that the zeta function is bounded by $\exp(C_K s^{\delta})$ in
strips $\Real s \leq K$, where $\delta$ is the dimension of the
Julia set. This leads to bounds on the number of zeros in strips
(interpreted as the PollicottRuelle resonances of this dynamical
system). An upper bound on the number of zeros in polynomial regions
$\{\Real s  \leq \Imag s^\alpha\}$ is given, followed by weaker
lower bound estimates in strips $\{\Real s > C, \Imag s\leq r\}$,
and logarithmic neighbourhoods
$\{ \Real s  \leq \rho \log \Imag s \}$.
Recent numerical work of StrainZworski suggests the upper
bounds in strips are optimal.

Representation of Banach Ideal Spaces and Factorization of Operators
Representation theorems are proved for Banach ideal spaces with the Fatou property
which are built by the Calder{\'o}nLozanovski\u\i\ construction.
Factorization theorems for operators in spaces more general than the Lebesgue
$L^{p}$ spaces are investigated. It is natural to extend the Gagliardo
theorem on the Schur test and the Rubio de~Francia theorem on factorization of the
Muckenhoupt $A_{p}$ weights to reflexive Orlicz spaces. However, it turns out that for
the scales far from $L^{p}$spaces this is impossible. For the concrete integral operators
it is shown that factorization theorems and the Schur test in some reflexive Orlicz spaces
are not valid. Representation theorems for the Calder{\'o}nLozanovski\u\i\ construction
are involved in the proofs.

Local Solvability of Laplacian Difference Operators Arising from the Discrete Heisenberg Group
Differential operators $D_x$, $D_y$, and $D_z$ are formed using the
action of the $3$dimensional discrete Heisenberg group $G$ on a set
$S$, and the operators will act on functions on $S$. The Laplacian
operator $L=D_x^2 + D_y^2 + D_z^2$ is a difference operator with
variable differences which can be associated to a unitary
representation of $G$ on the Hilbert space $L^2(S)$. Using techniques
from harmonic analysis and representation theory, we show that the
Laplacian operator is locally solvable.

Admissible Majorants for Model Subspaces of $H^2$, Part II: Fast Winding of the Generating Inner Function
This paper is a continuation of Part I [6]. We consider the model
subspaces $K_\Theta=H^2\ominus\Theta H^2$ of the Hardy space $H^2$
generated by an inner function $\Theta$ in the upper half plane. Our
main object is the class of admissible majorants for $K_\Theta$,
denoted by Adm $\Theta$ and consisting of all functions $\omega$
defined on $\mathbb{R}$ such that there exists an $f \ne 0$, $f \in
K_\Theta$ satisfying $f(x)\leq\omega(x)$ almost everywhere on
$\mathbb{R}$. Firstly, using some simple Hilbert transform techniques,
we obtain a general multiplier theorem applicable to any $K_\Theta$
generated by a meromorphic inner function. In contrast with
[6], we consider the generating functions $\Theta$ such that
the unit vector $\Theta(x)$ winds up fast as $x$ grows from $\infty$
to $\infty$. In particular, we consider $\Theta=B$ where $B$ is a
Blaschke product with ``horizontal'' zeros, i.e., almost
uniformly distributed in a strip parallel to and separated from $\mathbb{R}$.
It is shown, among other things, that for any such $B$, any even
$\omega$ decreasing on $(0,\infty)$ with a finite logarithmic integral
is in Adm $B$ (unlike the ``vertical'' case treated in [6]),
thus generalizing (with a new proof) a classical result related to
Adm $\exp(i\sigma z)$, $\sigma>0$. Some oscillating $\omega$'s in
Adm $B$ are also described. Our theme is related to the
BeurlingMalliavin multiplier theorem devoted to Adm $\exp(i\sigma z)$,
$\sigma>0$, and to de Branges' space $\mathcal{H}(E)$.

Admissible Majorants for Model Subspaces of $H^2$, Part I: Slow Winding of the Generating Inner Function
A model subspace $K_\Theta$ of the Hardy space $H^2 = H^2
(\mathbb{C}_+)$ for the upper half plane $\mathbb{C}_+$ is
$H^2(\mathbb{C}_+) \ominus \Theta H^2(\mathbb{C}_+)$ where $\Theta$
is an inner function in $\mathbb{C}_+$. A function $\omega \colon
\mathbb{R}\mapsto[0,\infty)$ is called an admissible
majorant for $K_\Theta$ if there exists an $f \in K_\Theta$, $f
\not\equiv 0$, $f(x)\leq \omega(x)$ almost everywhere on
$\mathbb{R}$. For some (mainly meromorphic) $\Theta$'s some parts
of Adm $\Theta$ (the set of all admissible majorants for
$K_\Theta$) are explicitly described. These descriptions depend on
the rate of growth of $\arg \Theta$ along $\mathbb{R}$. This paper
is about slowly growing arguments (slower than $x$). Our results
exhibit the dependence of Adm $B$ on the geometry of the zeros of
the Blaschke product $B$. A complete description of Adm $B$ is
obtained for $B$'s with purely imaginary (``vertical'') zeros. We
show that in this case a unique minimal admissible majorant exists.

We regard a system of left invariant vector fields $\mathcal{X}=\{X_1,\dots,X_k\}$

zero.

ConvexitÃ©, complÃ¨te monotonie et inÃ©galitÃ©s sur les fonctions zÃªta et gamma sur les fonctions des opÃ©rateurs de Baskakov et sur des fonctions arithmÃ©tiques
We give optimal upper and lower bounds for the function
$H(x,s)=\sum_{n\geq 1}\frac{1}{(x+n)^s}$ for $x\geq 0$ and $s>1$. These
bounds improve the standard inequalities with integrals. We deduce from them
inequalities about Riemann's $\zeta$ function, and we give a conjecture
about the monotonicity of the function
$s\mapsto[(s1)\zeta(s)]^{\frac{1}{s1}}$. Some applications concern the
convexity of functions related to Euler's $\Gamma$ function and optimal
majorization of elementary functions of Baskakov's operators. Then, the
result proved for the function $x\mapsto x^{s}$ is extended to completely
monotonic functions. This leads to easy evaluation of the order of the
generating series of some arithmetical functions when $z$ tends to 1. The
last part is concerned with the class of non negative decreasing convex
functions on $]0,+\infty[$, integrable at infinity.
