The Weak bprinciple: Mumford Conjecture
In this note we introduce and study a new class of maps called
oriented colored broken submersions. This is the simplest class
of maps that satisfies a version of the bprinciple and in dimension
$2$ approximates the class of oriented submersions well in the
sense that
every oriented colored broken submersion of dimension $2$ to
a closed simply connected manifold is bordant to a submersion.
We show that the MadsenWeiss theorem (the standard Mumford Conjecture)
fits a general setting of the bprinciple. Namely, a version
of the bprinciple for
oriented colored broken submersions together with the Harer
stability theorem and MillerMorita theorem implies the MadsenWeiss
theorem.

Orthogonal Bundles and SkewHamiltonian Matrices
Using properties of skewHamiltonian matrices and classic
connectedness results, we prove that the moduli space
$M_{ort}^0(r,n)$ of stable rank $r$ orthogonal vector bundles
on $\mathbb{P}^2$, with Chern classes $(c_1,c_2)=(0,n)$, and trivial
splitting on the general line, is smooth irreducible of
dimension $(r2)n\binom{r}{2}$ for $r=n$ and $n \ge 4$, and
$r=n1$ and $n\ge 8$. We speculate that the result holds in
greater generality.

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 $N$.

Moduli Spaces of Vector Bundles over a Real Curve: $\mathbb Z/2$Betti Numbers
Moduli spaces of real bundles over a real curve arise naturally
as Lagrangian submanifolds of the moduli space of semistable
bundles over a complex curve. In this paper, we adapt the methods
of AtiyahBott's ``YangMills over a Riemann Surface'' to compute
$\mathbb Z/2$Betti numbers of these spaces.

Orbital $L$functions for the Space of Binary Cubic Forms
We introduce the notion of orbital $L$functions
for the space of binary cubic forms
and investigate their analytic properties.
We study their functional equations and residue formulas in some detail.
Aside from their intrinsic interest,
the results from this paper are used to
prove the existence of secondary terms in counting
functions for cubic fields.
This is worked out in a companion paper.

Maps Preserving Complementarity of Closed Subspaces of a Hilbert Space
Let $\mathcal{H}$ and $\mathcal{K}$ be infinitedimensional separable
Hilbert spaces and ${\rm Lat}\,\mathcal{H}$ the lattice of all closed subspaces oh $\mathcal{H}$.
We describe the general form of pairs of bijective maps $\phi , \psi :
{\rm Lat}\,\mathcal{H} \to {\rm Lat}\,\mathcal{K}$ having the property that for every pair
$U,V \in {\rm Lat}\,\mathcal{H}$ we have $\mathcal{H} = U \oplus V \iff \mathcal{K} = \phi (U) \oplus \psi (V)$. Then we reformulate this theorem as a description
of bijective image equality and kernel equality preserving maps acting on bounded linear idempotent operators. Several known
structural results for maps on idempotents are easy consequences.

Weighted Carleson Measure Spaces Associated with Different Homogeneities
In this paper, we introduce weighted Carleson measure spaces associated
with different homogeneities and prove that these spaces are the dual spaces
of weighted Hardy spaces studied in a forthcoming paper.
As an application, we establish
the boundedness of composition of two CalderÃ³nZygmund operators with
different homogeneities on the weighted Carleson measure spaces; this,
in particular, provides the weighted endpoint estimates for the operators
studied by PhongStein.

Umbilical Submanifolds of $\mathbb{S}^n\times \mathbb{R}$
We give a complete classification of umbilical submanifolds of arbitrary dimension and codimension of
$\mathbb{S}^n\times \mathbb{R}$, extending the classification of umbilical surfaces
in $\mathbb{S}^2\times \mathbb{R}$ by Souam and Toubiana as well as the local
description of umbilical hypersurfaces in $\mathbb{S}^n\times \mathbb{R}$ by Van der
Veken and Vrancken. We prove that, besides small spheres in a slice,
up to isometries of the ambient space they come in a twoparameter
family of rotational submanifolds
whose substantial codimension is either one or two and whose profile
is a curve in a totally geodesic $\mathbb{S}^1\times \mathbb{R}$ or $\mathbb{S}^2\times
\mathbb{R}$, respectively, the former case arising in a oneparameter
family. All of them are diffeomorphic to a sphere, except for a single
element that is diffeomorphic to Euclidean space. We obtain explicit
parametrizations of all such submanifolds. We also study more general
classes of submanifolds of $\mathbb{S}^n\times \mathbb{R}$ and $\mathbb{H}^n\times \mathbb{R}$. In
particular, we give a complete description of all submanifolds in
those product spaces
for which the tangent component of a unit vector field spanning the
factor $\mathbb{R}$ is an eigenvector of all shape operators. We show that
surfaces with parallel mean curvature vector in $\mathbb{S}^n\times \mathbb{R}$ and
$\mathbb{H}^n\times \mathbb{R}$ having this property are rotational surfaces, and use
this fact to improve some recent results by Alencar, do Carmo, and
Tribuzy.
We also obtain a Dajczertype reduction of codimension theorem for
submanifolds of $\mathbb{S}^n\times \mathbb{R}$ and $\mathbb{H}^n\times \mathbb{R}$.

Composition of Inner Functions
We study the image of the model subspace $K_\theta$ under the
composition operator $C_\varphi$, where $\varphi$ and $\theta$ are
inner functions, and find the smallest model subspace which contains
the linear manifold $C_\varphi K_\theta$. Then we characterize the
case when $C_\varphi$ maps $K_\theta$ into itself. This case leads to
the study of the inner functions $\varphi$ and $\psi$ such that the
composition $\psi\circ\varphi$ is a divisor of $\psi$ in the family of
inner functions.

Transference of vectorvalued multipliers on weighted $L^p$spaces
We prove
restriction and extension of multipliers between
weighted Lebesgue spaces with
two different weights, which belong to a class more general than periodic weights, and two different exponents of integrability which can be
below one.
We also develop some adhoc methods which apply to weights
defined by the product of periodic weights with functions of power type.
Our vectorvalued approach allow us to extend results
to transference of maximal multipliers and provide transference of LittlewoodPaley inequalities.

Positively Curved Riemannian Locally Symmetric Spaces are Positively Squared Distance Curved
The squared distance curvature is a kind of twopoint curvature the
sign of which turned out crucial for the smoothness of optimal
transportation maps on Riemannian manifolds. Positivity properties of
that new curvature have been established recently for all the simply
connected compact rank one symmetric spaces, except the Cayley
plane. Direct proofs were given for the sphere, an indirect one
via the Hopf fibrations) for the complex and quaternionic
projective spaces. Here, we present a direct proof of a property
implying all the preceding ones, valid on every positively curved
Riemannian locally symmetric space.

Distance Sets of Urysohn Metric Spaces
A metric space $\mathrm{M}=(M;\operatorname{d})$ is {\em homogeneous} if for every
isometry $f$ of a finite subspace of $\mathrm{M}$ to a subspace of
$\mathrm{M}$ there exists an isometry of $\mathrm{M}$ onto
$\mathrm{M}$ extending $f$. The space $\mathrm{M}$ is {\em universal}
if it isometrically embeds every finite metric space $\mathrm{F}$ with
$\operatorname{dist}(\mathrm{F})\subseteq \operatorname{dist}(\mathrm{M})$. (With
$\operatorname{dist}(\mathrm{M})$ being the set of distances between points in
$\mathrm{M}$.)
A metric space $\boldsymbol{U}$ is an {\em Urysohn} metric space if
it is homogeneous, universal, separable and complete. (It is not
difficult to deduce
that an Urysohn metric space $\boldsymbol{U}$ isometrically embeds
every separable metric space $\mathrm{M}$ with
$\operatorname{dist}(\mathrm{M})\subseteq \operatorname{dist}(\boldsymbol{U})$.)
The main results are: (1) A characterization of the sets
$\operatorname{dist}(\boldsymbol{U})$ for Urysohn metric spaces $\boldsymbol{U}$.
(2) If $R$ is the distance set of an Urysohn metric space and
$\mathrm{M}$ and $\mathrm{N}$ are two metric spaces, of any
cardinality with distances in $R$, then they amalgamate disjointly to
a metric space with distances in $R$. (3) The completion of every
homogeneous, universal, separable metric space $\mathrm{M}$ is
homogeneous.

On Flag Curvature of Homogeneous Randers Spaces
In this paper we give an explicit formula for the flag curvature of
homogeneous Randers spaces of Douglas type and apply this formula to
obtain some interesting results. We first deduce an explicit formula
for the flag curvature of an arbitrary left invariant Randers metric
on a twostep nilpotent Lie group. Then we obtain a classification of
negatively curved homogeneous Randers spaces of Douglas type. This
results, in particular, in many examples of homogeneous nonRiemannian
Finsler spaces with negative flag curvature. Finally, we prove a
rigidity result that a homogeneous Randers space of Berwald type whose
flag curvature is everywhere nonzero must be Riemannian.

examples. For all the nontrivial examples we find, the Ricci operator
is diagonalizable.

Homotopy Classification of Projections in the Corona Algebra of a Nonsimple $C^*$algebra
We study projections in the corona algebra of $C(X)\otimes K$, where K
is the $C^*$algebra of compact operators on a separable infinite
dimensional Hilbert space and $X=[0,1],[0,\infty),(\infty,\infty)$,
or $[0,1]/\{ 0,1 \}$. Using BDF's essential codimension, we determine
conditions for a projection in the corona algebra to be liftable to a
projection in the multiplier algebra. We also determine the
conditions for two projections to be equal in $K_0$, Murrayvon
Neumann equivalent, unitarily equivalent, or homotopic. In light of
these characterizations, we construct examples showing that the
equivalence notions above are all distinct.

Surfaces of Rotation with Constant Mean Curvature in the Direction of a Unitary Normal Vector Field in a Randers Space
We consider the Randers space $(V^n,F_b)$ obtained by perturbing the Euclidean metric by a translation, $F_b=\alpha+\beta$, where $\alpha$ is the Euclidean metric and $\beta$ is a $1$form with norm $b$, $0\leq b\lt 1$. We introduce the concept of a hypersurface with constant mean curvature in the direction of a unitary normal vector field. We obtain the ordinary differential equation that characterizes the rotational surfaces $(V^3,F_b)$ of constant mean curvature (cmc) in the direction of a unitary normal vector field. These equations reduce to the classical equation of the rotational cmc surfaces in Euclidean space, when $b=0$. It also reduces to the equation that characterizes the minimal rotational surfaces in $(V^3,F_b)$ when $H=0$, obtained by M. Souza and K. Tenenblat. Although the differential equation depends on the choice of the normal direction, we show that both equations determine the same rotational surface, up to a reflection. We also show that the round cylinders are cmc surfaces in the direction of the unitary normal field. They are generated by the constant solution of the differential equation. By considering the equation as a nonlinear dynamical system, we provide a qualitative analysis, for $0\lt b\lt \frac{\sqrt{3}}{3}$. Using the concept of stability and considering the linearization around the single equilibrium point (the constant solution), we verify that the solutions are locally asymptotically stable spirals. This is proved by constructing a Lyapunov function for the dynamical system and by determining the basin of stability of the equilibrium point. The surfaces of rotation generated by such solutions tend asymptotically to one end of the cylinder.

A Fractal Function Related to the JohnNirenberg Inequality for $Q_{\alpha}({\mathbb R^n})$
A borderline case function $f$ for $ Q_{\alpha}({\mathbb R^n})$ spaces
is defined as a Haar wavelet decomposition, with the coefficients
depending on a fixed parameter $\beta>0$. On its support $I_0=[0,
1]^n$, $f(x)$ can be expressed by the binary expansions of the
coordinates of $x$. In particular, $f=f_{\beta}\in Q_{\alpha}({\mathbb
R^n})$ if and only if $\alpha<\beta<\frac{n}{2}$, while for
$\beta=\alpha$, it was shown by Yue and Dafni that $f$ satisfies a
JohnNirenberg inequality for $ Q_{\alpha}({\mathbb R^n})$. When
$\beta\neq 1$, $f$ is a selfaffine function. It is continuous almost
everywhere and discontinuous at all dyadic points inside $I_0$. In
addition, it is not monotone along any coordinate direction in any
small cube. When the parameter $\beta\in (0, 1)$, $f$ is onto from
$I_0$ to $[\frac{1}{12^{\beta}}, \frac{1}{12^{\beta}}]$, and the
graph of $f$ has a noninteger fractal dimension $n+1\beta$.

Quantum Cohomology of Minuscule Homogeneous Spaces III. SemiSimplicity and Consequences
We prove that the quantum cohomology ring of any minuscule or
cominuscule homogeneous space, specialized at $q=1$, is semisimple.
This implies that complex conjugation defines an algebra automorphism
of the quantum cohomology ring localized at the quantum
parameter. We check that this involution coincides with the strange
duality defined in our previous article. We deduce VafaIntriligator type
formulas for the GromovWitten invariants.

For some Banach spaces of analytic functions in the unit disk

As a consequence, it is shown that none of those spaces have isometric

BMO Functions and Carleson Measures with Values in Uniformly Convex Spaces
This paper studies the relationship between vectorvalued BMO functions and the Carleson measures defined by their gradients. Let $dA$ and $dm$ denote Lebesgue measures on the unit disc $D$ and the unit circle $\mathbf{T}$, respectively. For $1< q<\infty$ and a Banach space $B$, we prove that there exists a positive constant $c$ such that $$\sup_{z_0\in D}\int_{D}(1z)^{q1}\\nabla f(z)\^q P_{z_0}(z) dA(z) \le c^q\sup_{z_0\in D}\int_{\mathbf{T}}\f(z)f(z_0)\^qP_{z_0}(z) dm(z)$$ holds for all trigonometric polynomials $f$ with coefficients in $B$ if and only if $B$ admits an equivalent norm which is $q$uniformly convex, where $$P_{z_0}(z)=\frac{1z_0^2}{1\bar{z_0}z^2} .$$ The validity of the converse inequality is equivalent to the existence of an equivalent $q$uniformly smooth norm.

On Hankel Forms of Higher Weights: The Case of Hardy Spaces
In this paper we study bilinear Hankel forms of higher weights on Hardy spaces in several dimensions. (The Schatten class Hankel forms of higher weights on weighted Bergman spaces have already been studied by Janson and Peetre for one dimension and by SundhÃ¤ll for several dimensions). We get a full characterization of Schatten class Hankel forms in terms of conditions for the symbols to be in certain Besov spaces. Also, the Hankel forms are bounded and compact if and only if the symbols satisfy certain Carleson measure criteria and vanishing Carleson measure criteria, respectively.

An Algebraic Approach to Weakly Symmetric Finsler Spaces
In this paper, we introduce a new algebraic notion, weakly symmetric
Lie algebras, to give an algebraic description of an
interesting class of homogeneous RiemannFinsler spaces, weakly symmetric
Finsler spaces. Using this new definition, we are able to give a
classification of weakly symmetric Finsler spaces with dimensions $2$
and $3$. Finally, we show that all the nonRiemannian reversible weakly
symmetric Finsler spaces we find are nonBerwaldian and with vanishing
Scurvature. This means that reversible nonBerwaldian Finsler spaces
with vanishing Scurvature may exist at large. Hence the generalized
volume comparison theorems due to Z. Shen are valid for a rather large
class of Finsler spaces.
