Motion in a Symmetric Potential on the Hyperbolic Plane We study the motion of a particle in the hyperbolic plane (embedded in Minkowski space), under the action of a potential that depends only on one variable. This problem is the analogous to the spherical pendulum in a unidirectional force field. However, for the discussion of the hyperbolic plane one has to distinguish three inequivalent cases, depending on the direction of the force field. Symmetry reduction, with respect to groups that are not necessarily compact or even reductive, is carried out by way of Poisson varieties and Hilbert maps. For each case the dynamics is discussed, with special attention to linear potentials.

Infinitely Many Solutions for the Prescribed Boundary Mean Curvature Problem in $\mathbb B^N$ We consider the following prescribed boundary mean curvature problem
in $ \mathbb B^N$ with the Euclidean metric:
\[
\begin{cases}
\displaystyle -\Delta u =0,\quad u\gt 0 &\text{in }\mathbb B^N,
\\[2ex]
\displaystyle \frac{\partial u}{\partial\nu} + \frac{N-2}{2} u =\frac{N-2}{2} \widetilde K(x) u^{2^\#-1} \quad & \text{on }\mathbb S^{N-1},
\end{cases}
\]
where $\widetilde K(x)$ is positive and rotationally symmetric on $\mathbb
S^{N-1}, 2^\#=\frac{2(N-1)}{N-2}$.
We show that if $\widetilde K(x)$ has a local maximum point,
then the above problem has infinitely many positive solutions
that are not rotationally symmetric on $\mathbb S^{N-1}$.

The Geometry of the Weak Lefschetz Property and Level Sets of Points In a recent paper, F. Zanello showed that level Artinian algebras in 3
variables can fail to have the Weak Lefschetz Property (WLP), and can
even fail to have unimodal Hilbert function. We show that the same is
true for the Artinian reduction of reduced, level sets of points in
projective 3-space. Our main goal is to begin an understanding of how
the geometry of a set of points can prevent its Artinian reduction
from having WLP, which in itself is a very algebraic notion. More
precisely, we produce level sets of points whose Artinian reductions
have socle types 3 and 4 and arbitrary socle degree $\geq 12$ (in the
worst case), but fail to have WLP. We also produce a level set of
points whose Artinian reduction fails to have unimodal Hilbert
function; our example is based on Zanello's example. Finally, we show
that a level set of points can have Artinian reduction that has WLP
but fails to have the Strong Lefschetz Property. While our
constructions are all based on basic double G-linkage, the
implementations use very different methods.

On Fiber Cones of $\m$-Primary Ideals Two formulas for the multiplicity of the fiber cone
$F(I)=\bigoplus_{n=0}^{\infty} I^n/\m I^n$ of an $\m$-primary ideal of
a $d$-dimensional Cohen--Macaulay local ring $(R,\m)$ are derived in
terms of the mixed multiplicity $e_{d-1}(\m | I)$, the multiplicity
$e(I)$, and superficial elements. As a consequence, the
Cohen--Macaulay property of $F(I)$ when $I$ has minimal mixed
multiplicity or almost minimal mixed multiplicity is characterized
in terms of the reduction number of $I$ and lengths of certain ideals.
We also characterize the Cohen--Macaulay and Gorenstein properties of
fiber cones of $\m$-primary ideals with a $d$-generated minimal
reduction $J$ satisfying $\ell(I^2/JI)=1$ or
$\ell(I\m/J\m)=1.$

Multisymplectic Reduction for Proper Actions We consider symmetries of the Dedonder equation arising from
variational problems with partial derivatives. Assuming a proper
action of the symmetry group, we identify a set of reduced equations
on an open dense subset of the domain of definition of the fields
under consideration. By continuity, the Dedonder equation is
satisfied whenever the reduced equations are satisfied.

Differential Structure of Orbit Spaces We present a new approach to singular reduction of Hamiltonian systems
with symmetries. The tools we use are the category of differential
spaces of Sikorski and the Stefan-Sussmann theorem. The former is
applied to analyze the differential structure of the spaces involved
and the latter is used to prove that some of these spaces are smooth
manifolds.
Our main result is the identification of accessible sets of the
generalized distribution spanned by the Hamiltonian vector fields of
invariant functions with singular reduced spaces. We are also able
to describe the differential structure of a singular reduced space
corresponding to a coadjoint orbit which need not be locally closed.

Separable Reduction and Supporting Properties of FrÃ©chet-Like Normals in Banach Spaces We develop a method of separable reduction for Fr\'{e}chet-like
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 Bishop-Phelps density theorem.
Moreover, in this way we establish new characterizations of Asplund
spaces in terms of $\epsilon$-normals.

Some adjunction-theoretic properties of codimension two non-singular subvarities of quadrics We make precise the structure of the first two reduction morphisms
associated with codimension two non-singular subvarieties
of non-singular quadrics $\Q^n$, $n\geq 5$.
We give a coarse classification of the same class of subvarieties
when they are assumed not to be of log-general-type.}
