The C*algebras of Compact Transformation Groups
We investigate the representation theory of the
crossedproduct $C^*$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 $\operatorname{SO}(n1)$. 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.

Rotation Algebras and the Exel Trace Formula
We found that if $u$ and $v$ are any two unitaries in
a unital $C^*$algebra with $\uvvu\\lt 2$ and $uvu^*v^*$ commutes with
$u$ and $v,$ then the $C^*$subalgebra $A_{u,v}$ generated by $u$ and
$v$ is isomorphic to a quotient of some rotation algebra $A_\theta$
provided that $A_{u,v}$ has a unique tracial state.
We also found that the Exel trace formula holds in any unital
$C^*$algebra.
Let $\theta\in (1/2, 1/2)$ be a real number. We prove the
following:
For any $\epsilon\gt 0,$ there exists $\delta\gt 0$ satisfying the following:
if $u$ and $v$ are two unitaries in any unital simple $C^*$algebra
$A$ with tracial rank zero such that
\[
\uve^{2\pi i\theta}vu\\lt \delta
\text{ and }
{1\over{2\pi i}}\tau(\log(uvu^*v^*))=\theta,
\]
for all tracial state $\tau$ of $A,$ then there exists a pair
of unitaries $\tilde{u}$ and $\tilde{v}$ in $A$
such that
\[
\tilde{u}\tilde{v}=e^{2\pi i\theta} \tilde{v}\tilde{u},\,\,
\u\tilde{u}\\lt \epsilon
\text{ and }
\v\tilde{v}\\lt \epsilon.

Le lemme fondamental pondÃ©rÃ© pour le groupe mÃ©taplectique
Dans cet article, on Ã©nonce une variante du lemme fondamental
pondÃ©rÃ© d'Arthur pour le groupe mÃ©taplectique de Weil, qui sera un
ingrÃ©dient indispensable de la stabilisation de la formule des
traces. Pour un corps de caractÃ©ristique rÃ©siduelle suffisamment
grande, on en donne une dÃ©monstration Ã l'aide de la mÃ©thode de
descente, qui est conditionnelle: on admet le lemme fondamental
pondÃ©rÃ© non standard sur les algÃ¨bres de Lie. Vu les travaux de
Chaudouard et Laumon, on s'attend Ã ce que cette condition soit
ultÃ©rieurement vÃ©rifiÃ©e.

Some Applications of the Perturbation Determinant in Finite von Neumann Algebras
In the finite von Neumann algebra setting, we introduce the concept
of a perturbation determinant associated with a pair of selfadjoint
elements $H_0$ and $H$ in the algebra and relate it to the concept of
the de la HarpeSkandalis homotopy invariant determinant associated
with piecewise $C^1$paths of operators joining $H_0$ and $H$. We
obtain an analog of Krein's formula that relates the perturbation
determinant and the spectral shift function and, based on this
relation, we derive subsequently (i) the BirmanSolomyak formula for
a general nonlinear perturbation, (ii) a universality of a spectral
averaging, and (iii) a generalization of the
DixmierFugledeKadison differentiation formula.

Hecke $L$Functions and the Distribution of Totally Positive Integers
Let $K$ be a totally real number field of degree $n$. We show that
the number of totally positive integers
(or more generally the number of totally positive elements of a given fractional ideal)
of given trace is evenly distributed around its expected value, which is
obtained from geometric considerations.
This result depends on unfolding an integral over
a compact torus.

Complex Uniform Convexity and Riesz Measure
The norm on a Banach space gives rise to a subharmonic function on the
complex plane for which the distributional Laplacian gives a Riesz measure.
This measure is calculated explicitly here for Lebesgue $L^p$ spaces and the
von~NeumannSchatten trace ideals. Banach spaces that are $q$uniformly
$\PL$convex in the sense of Davis, Garling and TomczakJaegermann are
characterized in terms of the mass distribution of this measure. This gives
a new proof that the trace ideals $c^p$ are $2$uniformly $\PL$convex for
$1\leq p\leq 2$.

Chief Factor Sizes in Finitely Generated Varieties
Let $\mathbf{A}$ be a $k$element algebra whose chief factor size is
$c$. We show that if $\mathbf{B}$ is in the variety generated by
$\mathbf{A}$, then any abelian chief factor of $\mathbf{B}$ that is
not strongly abelian has size at most $c^{k1}$. This solves
Problem~5 of {\it The Structure of Finite Algebras}, by D.~Hobby and
R.~McKenzie. We refine this bound to $c$ in the situation where the
variety generated by $\mathbf{A}$ omits type $\mathbf{1}$. As a
generalization, we bound the size of multitraces of types~$\mathbf{1}$,
$\mathbf{2}$, and $\mathbf{3}$ by extending coordinatization
theory. Finally, we exhibit some examples of bad behavior, even in
varieties satisfying a congruence identity.

KTheory of NonCommutative Spheres Arising from the Fourier Automorphism
For a dense $G_\delta$ set of real parameters $\theta$ in $[0,1]$
(containing the rationals) it is shown that the group $K_0 (A_\theta
\rtimes_\sigma \mathbb{Z}_4)$ is isomorphic to $\mathbb{Z}^9$, where
$A_\theta$ is the rotation C*algebra generated by unitaries $U$, $V$
satisfying $VU = e^{2\pi i\theta} UV$ and $\sigma$ is the Fourier
automorphism of $A_\theta$ defined by $\sigma(U) = V$, $\sigma(V) =
U^{1}$. More precisely, an explicit basis for $K_0$ consisting of
nine canonical modules is given. (A slight generalization of this
result is also obtained for certain separable continuous fields of
unital C*algebras over $[0,1]$.) The Connes Chern character $\ch
\colon K_0 (A_\theta \rtimes_\sigma \mathbb{Z}_4) \to H^{\ev} (A_\theta
\rtimes_\sigma \mathbb{Z}_4)^*$ is shown to be injective for a dense
$G_\delta$ set of parameters $\theta$. The main computational tool in
this paper is a group homomorphism $\vtr \colon K_0 (A_\theta
\rtimes_\sigma \mathbb{Z}_4) \to \mathbb{R}^8 \times \mathbb{Z}$
obtained from the Connes Chern character by restricting the
functionals in its codomain to a certain ninedimensional subspace of
$H^{\ev} (A_\theta \rtimes_\sigma \mathbb{Z}_4)$. The range of $\vtr$
is fully determined for each $\theta$. (We conjecture that this
subspace is all of $H^{\ev}$.)

Chern Characters of Fourier Modules
Let $A_\theta$ denote the rotation algebrathe universal $C^\ast$algebra
generated by unitaries $U,V$ satisfying $VU=e^{2\pi i\theta}UV$, where
$\theta$ is a fixed real number. Let $\sigma$ denote the Fourier
automorphism of $A_\theta$ defined by $U\mapsto V$, $V\mapsto U^{1}$,
and let $B_\theta = A_\theta \rtimes_\sigma \mathbb{Z}/4\mathbb{Z}$ denote
the associated $C^\ast$crossed product. It is shown that there is a
canonical inclusion $\mathbb{Z}^9 \hookrightarrow K_0(B_\theta)$ for each
$\theta$ given by nine canonical modules. The unbounded trace functionals
of $B_\theta$ (yielding the Chern characters here) are calculated to obtain
the cyclic cohomology group of order zero $\HC^0(B_\theta)$ when
$\theta$ is irrational. The Chern characters of the nine modulesand more
importantly, the Fourier moduleare computed and shown to involve techniques
from the theory of Jacobi's theta functions. Also derived are explicit
equations connecting unbounded traces across strong Morita equivalence, which
turn out to be noncommutative extensions of certain theta function equations.
These results provide the basis for showing that for a dense $G_\delta$ set
of values of $\theta$ one has $K_0(B_\theta)\cong\mathbb{Z}^9$ and is
generated by the nine classes constructed here.

On Limit Multiplicities for Spaces of Automorphic Forms
Let $\Gamma$ be a rankone arithmetic subgroup of a
semisimple Lie group~$G$. For fixed $K$Type, the spectral
side of the Selberg trace formula defines a distribution
on the space of infinitesimal characters of~$G$, whose
discrete part encodes the dimensions of the spaces of
squareintegrable $\Gamma$automorphic forms. It is shown
that this distribution converges to the Plancherel measure
of $G$ when $\Ga$ shrinks to the trivial group in a certain
restricted way. The analogous assertion for cocompact
lattices $\Gamma$ follows from results of DeGeorgeWallach
and Delorme.
