Cremona Maps of de JonquiÃ¨res Type
This paper is concerned with suitable generalizations of a plane de
JonquiÃ¨res map to higher dimensional space
$\mathbb{P}^n$ with $n\geq 3$.
For each given point of $\mathbb{P}^n$ there is a subgroup of the entire
Cremona group of dimension $n$
consisting of such maps.
One studies both geometric and grouptheoretical properties of this notion.
In the case where $n=3$ one describes an explicit set of generators of
the group and gives a homological characterization
of a basic subgroup thereof.

Higher Rank Wavelets
A theory of higher rank multiresolution analysis is given in the
setting of abelian multiscalings. This theory enables the
construction, from a higher rank MRA, of finite wavelet sets
whose multidilations have translates forming an orthonormal basis
in $L^2(\mathbb R^d)$. While tensor products of uniscaled MRAs provide
simple examples we construct many nonseparable higher rank
wavelets. In particular we construct \emph{Latin square
wavelets} as rank~$2$ variants of Haar wavelets. Also we construct
nonseparable scaling functions for rank $2$ variants of Meyer
wavelet scaling functions, and we construct the associated
nonseparable wavelets with compactly supported Fourier transforms.
On the other hand we show that compactly supported scaling
functions for biscaled MRAs are necessarily separable.

LowPass Filters and Scaling Functions for Multivariable Wavelets
We show that a characterization of scaling functions for
multiresolution analyses given by Hern\'{a}ndez and Weiss and that a
characterization of lowpass filters given by Gundy both hold for
multivariable multiresolution analyses.

Endomorphism Rings of Finite Global Dimension
For a commutative local ring $R$, consider (noncommutative)
$R$algebras $\Lambda$ of the form $\Lambda = \operatorname{End}_R(M)$
where $M$ is a reflexive $R$module with nonzero free direct summand.
Such algebras $\Lambda$ of finite global dimension can be viewed as
potential substitutes for, or analogues of, a resolution of
singularities of $\operatorname{Spec} R$. For example, Van den Bergh
has shown that a threedimensional Gorenstein normal
$\mathbb{C}$algebra with isolated terminal singularities has a
crepant resolution of singularities if and only if it has such an
algebra $\Lambda$ with finite global dimension and which is maximal
CohenMacaulay over $R$ (a ``noncommutative crepant resolution of
singularities''). We produce algebras
$\Lambda=\operatorname{End}_R(M)$ having finite global dimension in
two contexts: when $R$ is a reduced onedimensional complete local
ring, or when $R$ is a CohenMacaulay local ring of finite
CohenMacaulay type. If in the latter case $R$ is Gorenstein, then
the construction gives a noncommutative crepant resolution of
singularities in the sense of Van den Bergh.

On Operators with Spectral Square but without Resolvent Points
Decompositions of spectral type are
obtained for closed Hilbert space operators with empty resolvent
set, but whose square has closure which is spectral. Krein space
situations are also discussed.

Frames and Single Wavelets for Unitary Groups
We consider a unitary representation of a discrete countable abelian
group on a separable Hilbert space which is associated to a cyclic
generalized frame multiresolution analysis. We extend Robertson's
theorem to apply to frames generated by the action of the group.
Within this setup we use Stone's theorem and the theory of projection
valued measures to analyze wandering frame collections. This yields a
functional analytic method of constructing a wavelet from a
generalized frame multi\resolution analysis in terms of the frame
scaling vectors. We then explicitly apply our results to the action
of the integers given by translations on $L^2({\mathbb R})$.

Canonical Resolution of a Quasiordinary Surface Singularity
We describe the embedded resolution of an irreducible quasiordinary
surface singularity $(V,p)$ which results from applying the canonical
resolution of BierstoneMilman to $(V,p)$. We show that this process
depends solely on the characteristic pairs of $(V,p)$, as predicted
by Lipman. We describe the process explicitly enough that a resolution
graph for $f$ could in principle be obtained by computer using only
the characteristic pairs.

An Algorithm for Fat Points on $\mathbf{P}^2
Let $F$ be a divisor on the blowup $X$ of $\pr^2$ at $r$ general
points $p_1, \dots, p_r$ and let $L$ be the total transform of a
line on $\pr^2$. An approach is presented for reducing the
computation of the dimension of the cokernel of the natural map
$\mu_F \colon \Gamma \bigl( \CO_X(F) \bigr) \otimes \Gamma \bigl(
\CO_X(L) \bigr) \to \Gamma \bigl( \CO_X(F) \otimes \CO_X(L) \bigr)$
to the case that $F$ is ample. As an application, a formula for
the dimension of the cokernel of $\mu_F$ is obtained when $r = 7$,
completely solving the problem of determining the modules in
minimal free resolutions of fat point subschemes\break
$m_1 p_1 + \cdots + m_7 p_7 \subset \pr^2$. All results hold for
an arbitrary algebraically closed ground field~$k$.
