On a Linear Refinement of the PrÃ©kopaLeindler Inequality
If $f,g:\mathbb{R}^n\longrightarrow\mathbb{R}_{\geq0}$ are nonnegative measurable
functions, then the PrÃ©kopaLeindler inequality asserts that
the integral of the Asplund sum (provided that it is measurable)
is greater or equal than the $0$mean of the integrals of $f$
and $g$.
In this paper we prove that under the sole assumption that $f$
and $g$ have
a common projection onto a hyperplane, the PrÃ©kopaLeindler
inequality admits a linear refinement. Moreover, the same inequality
can be obtained when assuming that both projections (not necessarily
equal as functions) have the same integral. An analogous approach
may be also carried out for the socalled BorellBrascampLieb
inequality.

Fundamental Group of Simple $C^*$algebras with Unique Trace III
We introduce the fundamental group ${\mathcal F}(A)$ of
a simple $\sigma$unital $C^*$algebra $A$ with unique (up to scalar multiple)
densely defined lower semicontinuous trace.
This is a generalization of ``Fundamental Group of Simple
$C^*$algebras with Unique Trace I and II'' by Nawata and Watatani.
Our definition in this paper makes sense for stably projectionless $C^*$algebras.
We show that there exist separable stably projectionless $C^*$algebras such that
their fundamental groups are equal to $\mathbb{R}_+^\times$
by using the classification theorem of Razak and Tsang.
This is a contrast to the unital case in Nawata and Watatani.
This study is motivated by the work of Kishimoto and Kumjian.

Transfer of Fourier Multipliers into Schur Multipliers and Sumsets in a Discrete Group
We inspect the relationship between relative Fourier
multipliers on noncommutative LebesgueOrlicz spaces of a discrete
group $\varGamma$ and relative ToeplitzSchur multipliers on
SchattenvonNeumannOrlicz classes. Four applications are given:
lacunary sets, unconditional Schauder bases for the subspace of a
Lebesgue space determined by a given spectrum $\varLambda\subseteq\varGamma$, the
norm of the Hilbert transform and the Riesz projection on
SchattenvonNeumann classes with exponent a power of 2, and the norm of
Toeplitz Schur multipliers on SchattenvonNeumann classes with
exponent less than 1.

Distance from Idempotents to Nilpotents
We give bounds on the distance from a nonzero idempotent to the
set of nilpotents in the set of $n\times n$ matrices in terms of
the norm of the idempotent. We construct explicit idempotents and
nilpotents which achieve these distances, and determine exact
distances in some special cases.
