Tannakian categories with semigroup actions
Ostrowski's theorem implies that $\log(x),\log(x+1),\dots$ are
algebraically independent over $\mathbb{C}(x)$. More generally, for
a linear differential or difference equation, it is an important
problem to find all algebraic dependencies among a nonzero solution
$y$ and particular transformations of $y$, such as derivatives
of $y$ with respect to parameters, shifts of the arguments, rescaling,
etc. In the present paper, we develop a theory of Tannakian categories
with semigroup actions, which will be used to attack such questions
in full generality, as each linear differential equation gives
rise to a Tannakian category.
Deligne studied actions of braid groups on categories and obtained
a finite collection of axioms that characterizes such actions
to apply it to various geometric constructions. In this paper,
we find a finite set of axioms that characterizes actions of
semigroups that are finite free products of semigroups of the
form $\mathbb{N}^n\times
\mathbb{Z}/{n_1}\mathbb{Z}\times\cdots\times\mathbb{Z}/{n_r}\mathbb{Z}$
on Tannakian categories. This is the class of semigroups that
appear in many applications.

Lyapunov Stability and Attraction Under Equivariant Maps
Let $M$ and $N$ be admissible Hausdorff topological spaces endowed
with
admissible families of open coverings. Assume that $\mathcal{S}$ is a
semigroup acting on both $M$ and $N$. In this paper we study the behavior of
limit sets, prolongations, prolongational limit sets, attracting sets,
attractors and Lyapunov stable sets (all concepts defined for the action of
the semigroup $\mathcal{S}$) under equivariant maps and semiconjugations
from $M$ to $N$.

Projectors on the Generalized Eigenspaces for Neutral Functional Differential Equations in $L^{p}$ Spaces
We present the explicit formulas for the projectors on the generalized
eigenspaces associated with some eigenvalues for linear neutral functional
differential equations (NFDE) in $L^{p}$ spaces by using integrated
semigroup theory. The analysis is based on the main result
established elsewhere by the authors and results by Magal and Ruan
on nondensely defined Cauchy problem.
We formulate the NFDE as a nondensely defined Cauchy problem and obtain
some spectral properties from which we then derive explicit formulas for
the projectors on the generalized eigenspaces associated with some
eigenvalues. Such explicit formulas are important in studying bifurcations
in some semilinear problems.

Girsanov Transformations for NonSymmetric Diffusions
Let $X$ be a diffusion process, which is assumed to be
associated with a (nonsymmetric) strongly local Dirichlet form
$(\mathcal{E},\mathcal{D}(\mathcal{E}))$ on $L^2(E;m)$. For
$u\in{\mathcal{D}}({\mathcal{E}})_e$, the extended Dirichlet
space, we investigate some properties of the Girsanov transformed
process $Y$ of $X$. First, let $\widehat{X}$ be the dual process of
$X$ and $\widehat{Y}$ the Girsanov transformed process of $\widehat{X}$.
We give a necessary and sufficient condition for $(Y,\widehat{Y})$ to
be in duality with respect to the measure $e^{2u}m$. We also
construct a counterexample, which shows that this condition may
not be satisfied and hence $(Y,\widehat{Y})$ may not be dual
processes. Then we present a sufficient condition under which $Y$
is associated with a semiDirichlet form. Moreover, we give an
explicit representation of the semiDirichlet form.

$H^\infty$ 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.

Nonstandard Ideals from Nonstandard Dual Pairs for $L^1(\omega)$ and $l^1(\omega)$
The Banach convolution algebras $l^1(\omega)$
and their continuous counterparts $L^1(\bR^+,\omega)$
are much
studied, because (when the submultiplicative weight function
$\omega$ is radical) they are pretty much the prototypic examples
of commutative radical Banach algebras. In cases of ``nice''
weights $\omega$, the only closed ideals they have are the obvious,
or ``standard'', ideals. But in the
general case, a brilliant but very difficult paper of Marc Thomas
shows that nonstandard ideals exist in $l^1(\omega)$. His
proof was successfully exported to the continuous case
$L^1(\bR^+,\omega)$ by Dales and McClure, but remained
difficult. In this paper we first present a small improvement: a
new and easier proof of the existence of nonstandard ideals in
$l^1(\omega)$ and $L^1(\bR^+,\omega)$. The new proof is based on
the idea of a ``nonstandard dual pair'' which we introduce.
We are then able to make a much larger improvement: we
find nonstandard ideals in $L^1(\bR^+,\omega)$ containing functions
whose supports extend all the way down to zero in $\bR^+$, thereby solving
what has become a notorious problem in the area.
