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 $N$.

Stability of Equilibrium Solutions in Planar Hamiltonian Difference Systems
In this paper, we study the stability in the Lyapunov sense of the
equilibrium solutions of discrete or difference Hamiltonian systems
in the plane. First, we perform a detailed study of linear
Hamiltonian systems as a function of the parameters, in particular
we analyze the regular and the degenerate cases. Next, we give a
detailed study of the normal form associated with the linear
Hamiltonian system. At the same time we obtain the conditions under
which we can get stability (in linear approximation) of the
equilibrium solution, classifying all the possible phase diagrams as
a function of the parameters. After that, we study the stability of
the equilibrium solutions of the first order difference system in
the plane associated to mechanical Hamiltonian system and
Hamiltonian system defined by cubic polynomials. Finally, important
differences with the continuous case are pointed out.

Representation Stability of Power Sets and Square Free Polynomials
The symmetric group $\mathcal{S}_n$ acts on the power
set $\mathcal{P}(n)$ and also on the set of
square free polynomials in $n$ variables. These
two related representations are analyzed from the stability point
of view. An application is given for the action of the symmetric
group on the cohomology of the pure braid group.

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 Gap Properties and Instabilities of $p$YangMills Fields
We consider the
$p$YangMills functional
$(p\geq 2)$
defined as
$\YM_p(\nabla):=\frac 1 p \int_M \\rn\^p$.
We call critical points of $\YM_p(\cdot)$ the $p$YangMills
connections, and the associated curvature $\rn$ the $p$YangMills
fields. In this paper, we prove gap properties and instability theorems for $p$YangMills
fields over submanifolds in $\mathbb{R}^{n+k}$ and $\mathbb{S}^{n+k}$.
