The C*-algebras of Compact Transformation Groups We investigate the representation theory of the
crossed-product $C^*$-algebra associated to a compact group $G$
acting on a locally compact space $X$ when the stability subgroups
vary discontinuously.
Our main result applies when $G$ has a principal stability subgroup or
$X$ is locally of finite $G$-orbit type. Then the upper multiplicity
of the representation of the crossed product induced from an
irreducible representation $V$ of a stability subgroup is obtained by
restricting $V$ to a certain closed subgroup of the stability subgroup
and taking the maximum of the multiplicities of the irreducible
summands occurring in the restriction of $V$. As a corollary we obtain
that when the trivial subgroup is a principal stability subgroup, the
crossed product is a Fell algebra if and only if every stability
subgroup is abelian. A second corollary is that the $C^*$-algebra of
the motion group $\mathbb{R}^n\rtimes \operatorname{SO}(n)$ is a Fell algebra. This uses
the classical branching theorem for the special orthogonal group
$\operatorname{SO}(n)$ with respect to $\operatorname{SO}(n-1)$. Since proper transformation
groups are locally induced from the actions of compact groups, we
describe how some of our results can be extended to transformation
groups that are locally proper.

The Bochner-Schoenberg-Eberlein property and spectral synthesis for certain Banach algebra products Associated with two commutative Banach algebras $A$ and $B$ and
a character $\theta$ of $B$ is a certain Banach algebra product
$A\times_\theta B$, which is a splitting extension of $B$ by
$A$. We investigate two topics for the algebra $A\times_\theta
B$ in relation to the corresponding ones of $A$ and $B$. The
first one is the Bochner-Schoenberg-Eberlein property and the
algebra of Bochner-Schoenberg-Eberlein functions on the spectrum,
whereas the second one concerns the wide range of spectral synthesis
problems for $A\times_\theta B$.

Automatic Continuity of Homomorphisms in Non-associative Banach Algebras We introduce the concept of a rare element in a non-associative normed
algebra and show that the existence of such element is the only obstruction
to continuity of a surjective homomorphism from a non-associative Banach
algebra to a unital normed algebra with simple completion. Unital
associative algebras do not admit any rare element and hence automatic
continuity holds.

Projectors on the Generalized Eigenspaces for Neutral Functional Differential Equations in $L^{p}$ Spaces |
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 non-densely defined Cauchy problem.
We formulate the NFDE as a non-densely 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 semi-linear problems.

The Spectrum of an Infinite Graph In this paper, we consider the (essential) spectrum of the discrete
Laplacian of an infinite graph. We introduce a new quantity for an
infinite graph, in terms of which we give new lower bound estimates of
the (essential) spectrum and give also upper bound estimates when the
infinite graph is bipartite. We give sharp estimates of the
(essential) spectrum for several examples of infinite graphs.
