Nonstable $K_1$functors of multiloop groups
Let $k$ be a field of characteristic 0. Let $G$ be a reductive
group over the ring of Laurent polynomials
$R=k[x_1^{\pm 1},...,x_n^{\pm 1}]$. Assume that $G$ contains
a maximal $R$torus, and
that every semisimple normal subgroup of $G$ contains a twodimensional
split torus $\mathbf{G}_m^2$.
We show that the natural map of nonstable $K_1$functors, also
called Whitehead groups,
$K_1^G(R)\to K_1^G\bigl( k((x_1))...((x_n)) \bigr)$ is injective,
and an isomorphism if $G$ is semisimple.
As an application, we provide a way to compute the difference
between the
full automorphism group of a Lie torus (in the sense of YoshiiNeher)
and the subgroup generated by
exponential automorphisms.

Categorical aspects of quantum groups: multipliers and intrinsic groups
We show that the assignment of the (left) completely bounded
multiplier algebra
$M_{cb}^l(L^1(\mathbb G))$ to a locally compact quantum group
$\mathbb G$, and
the assignment of the intrinsic group, form functors between
appropriate
categories. Morphisms of locally compact quantum
groups can be described by Hopf $*$homomorphisms between universal
$C^*$algebras, by bicharacters, or by special sorts of coactions.
We show that the whole
theory of completely bounded multipliers can be lifted to the
universal
$C^*$algebra level, and that then the different pictures of
both multipliers
(reduced, universal, and as centralisers)
and morphisms interact in extremely natural ways. The intrinsic
group of a
quantum group can be realised as a class of multipliers, and
so our techniques
immediately apply. We also show how to think of the intrinsic
group using
the universal $C^*$algebra picture, and then, again, show how
the differing
views on the intrinsic group interact naturally with morphisms.
We show that
the intrinsic group is the ``maximal classical'' quantum subgroup
of a locally
compact quantum group, show that it is even closed in the strong
Vaes sense,
and that the intrinsic group functor is an adjoint to the inclusion
functor
from locally compact groups to quantum groups.

Arithmetic of degenerating principal variations of Hodge structure: examples arising from mirror symmetry and middle convolution
We collect evidence in support of a conjecture of Griffiths,
Green
and Kerr
on the arithmetic of extension classes of
limiting
mixed Hodge structures arising from semistable degenerations
over
a number field. After briefly summarizing how a result of Iritani
implies this conjecture for a collection of hypergeometric
CalabiYau threefold examples studied by Doran and Morgan,
the authors investigate a sequence of (nonhypergeometric) examples
in dimensions $1\leq d\leq6$ arising from Katz's theory of the
middle
convolution.
A crucial role is played by the MumfordTate
group (which is $G_{2}$) of the family of 6folds, and the theory
of boundary components of MumfordTate domains.

On positive definiteness over locally compact quantum groups
The notion of positivedefinite functions over locally compact
quantum
groups was recently introduced and studied by Daws and Salmi.
Based
on this work, we generalize various wellknown results about
positivedefinite
functions over groups to the quantum framework. Among these are
theorems
on "square roots" of positivedefinite functions, comparison
of
various topologies, positivedefinite measures and characterizations
of amenability, and the separation property with respect to compact
quantum subgroups.

Lifting Representations of Finite Reductive Groups I: Semisimple Conjugacy Classes
Suppose that $\tilde{G}$ is a connected reductive group
defined over a field $k$, and
$\Gamma$ is a finite group acting via $k$automorphisms
of $\tilde{G}$ satisfying a certain quasisemisimplicity condition.
Then the identity component of the group of $\Gamma$fixed points
in $\tilde{G}$ is reductive.
We axiomatize the main features of the relationship between this
fixedpoint group and the pair $(\tilde{G},\Gamma)$,
and consider any group $G$ satisfying the axioms.
If both $\tilde{G}$ and $G$ are $k$quasisplit, then we
can consider their duals $\tilde{G}^*$ and $G^*$.
We show the existence of and give an explicit formula for a natural
map from the set of semisimple stable conjugacy classes in $G^*(k)$
to the analogous set for $\tilde{G}^*(k)$.
If $k$ is finite, then our groups are automatically quasisplit,
and our result specializes to give a map
of semisimple conjugacy classes.
Since such classes parametrize packets of irreducible representations
of $G(k)$ and $\tilde{G}(k)$, one obtains a mapping of such packets.

Geometric Spectra and Commensurability
The work of Reid, ChinburgHamiltonLongReid,
PrasadRapinchuk, and the author with Reid have demonstrated that
geodesics or totally geodesic submanifolds can sometimes be used to
determine the commensurability class of an arithmetic manifold. The
main results of this article show that generalizations of these
results to other arithmetic manifolds will require a wide range of
data. Specifically, we prove that certain incommensurable arithmetic
manifolds arising from the semisimple Lie groups of the form
$(\operatorname{SL}(d,\mathbf{R}))^r \times
(\operatorname{SL}(d,\mathbf{C}))^s$ have the same commensurability
classes of totally geodesic submanifolds coming from a fixed
field. This construction is algebraic and shows the failure of
determining, in general, a central simple algebra from subalgebras
over a fixed field. This, in turn, can be viewed in terms of forms of
$\operatorname{SL}_d$ and the failure of determining the form via certain classes of
algebraic subgroups.

Motion in a Symmetric Potential on the Hyperbolic Plane
We study the motion of a particle in the hyperbolic plane (embedded in Minkowski space), under the action of a potential that depends only on one variable. This problem is the analogous to the spherical pendulum in a unidirectional force field. However, for the discussion of the hyperbolic plane one has to distinguish three inequivalent cases, depending on the direction of the force field. Symmetry reduction, with respect to groups that are not necessarily compact or even reductive, is carried out by way of Poisson varieties and Hilbert maps. For each case the dynamics is discussed, with special attention to linear potentials.

Lifting Quasianalytic Mappings over Invariants
Let $\rho \colon G \to \operatorname{GL}(V)$ be a rational finite dimensional complex representation of a reductive linear
algebraic group $G$, and let $\sigma_1,\dots,\sigma_n$ be a system of generators of the algebra of
invariant polynomials $\mathbb C[V]^G$.
We study the problem of lifting mappings $f\colon \mathbb R^q \supseteq U \to \sigma(V) \subseteq \mathbb C^n$
over the mapping of invariants
$\sigma=(\sigma_1,\dots,\sigma_n) \colon V \to \sigma(V)$. Note that $\sigma(V)$ can be identified with the categorical quotient $V /\!\!/ G$
and its points correspond bijectively to the closed orbits in $V$. We prove that if $f$ belongs to a quasianalytic subclass
$\mathcal C \subseteq C^\infty$ satisfying some mild closedness properties that guarantee resolution of singularities in
$\mathcal C$,
e.g., the real analytic class, then $f$ admits a lift of the
same class $\mathcal C$ after desingularization by local blowups and local power substitutions.
As a consequence we show that $f$ itself allows for a lift
that belongs to $\operatorname{SBV}_{\operatorname{loc}}$, i.e., special functions of bounded variation.
If $\rho$ is a real representation of a compact Lie group, we obtain stronger versions.

A BottBorelWeil Theorem for Diagonal Indgroups
A diagonal indgroup is a direct limit of classical affine algebraic
groups of growing rank under a class of
inclusions that contains the inclusion
$$
SL(n)\to SL(2n), \quad
M\mapsto \begin{pmatrix}M & 0 \\ 0 & M \end{pmatrix}
$$
as a typical special case. If $G$ is a diagonal indgroup and
$B\subset G$ is a Borel indsubgroup,
we consider the indvariety $G/B$ and compute the cohomology
$H^\ell(G/B,\mathcal{O}_{\lambda})$
of any $G$equivariant line bundle $\mathcal{O}_{\lambda}$ on
$G/B$. It has been known that, for a generic $\lambda$,
all cohomology groups of $\mathcal{O}_{\lambda}$ vanish, and that a
nongeneric equivariant
line bundle $\mathcal{O}_{\lambda}$ has at most one
nonzero cohomology group. The new result of this paper is a
precise description of when
$H^j(G/B,\mathcal{O}_{\lambda})$ is nonzero and the proof of the fact
that, whenever nonzero,
$H^j(G/B, \mathcal{O}_{\lambda})$ is a $G$module dual to a highest
weight module.
The main difficulty is in defining an appropriate analog $W_B$ of the
Weyl group, so that the action of $W_B$
on weights of $G$ is compatible with the analog of the Demazure
``action" of the Weyl group on the cohomology
of line bundles. The highest weight corresponding to $H^j(G/B,
\mathcal{O}_{\lambda})$ is then computed
by a procedure similar to that in the classical BottBorelWeil theorem.

IwahoriHecke Algebras of $SL_2$ over $2$Dimensional Local Fields
In this paper we construct an analogue of IwahoriHecke algebras of $\operatorname{SL}_2$ over $2$dimensional local fields. After considering coset decompositions of double cosets of a Iwahori subgroup, we define a convolution product on the space of certain functions on $\operatorname{SL}_2$, and prove that the product is welldefined, obtaining a Hecke algebra. Then we investigate the structure of the Hecke algebra. We determine the center of the Hecke algebra and consider IwahoriMatsumoto type relations.

Branching Rules for Ramified Principal Series Representations of $\mathrm{GL}(3)$ over a $p$adic Field
We decompose the restriction of ramified principal series
representations of the $p$adic group $\mathrm{GL}(3,\mathrm{k})$ to its
maximal compact subgroup $K=\mathrm{GL}(3,R)$. Its decomposition is
dependent on the degree of ramification of the inducing characters and
can be characterized in terms of filtrations of the Iwahori subgroup
in $K$. We establish several irreducibility results and illustrate
the decomposition with some examples.

Infinitesimal Invariants in a Function Algebra
Let $G$ be a reductive connected linear algebraic group
over an algebraically closed field of positive
characteristic and let $\g$ be its Lie algebra.
First we extend a wellknown result about the Picard group of a
semisimple group to reductive groups.
Then we prove that if the derived group is simply connected
and $\g$ satisfies a
mild condition, the algebra $K[G]^\g$ of regular functions
on $G$ that are invariant under the action of $\g$ derived
from the conjugation action is a unique factorisation domain.

that, on the elliptic set, the character of $\pi$ equals the complex

of~$\pi$. We prove also the orthogonality relations for characters of
square integrable representations of $G'$. We prove the stable

Essential Dimensions of Algebraic Groups and a Resolution Theorem for $G$Varieties
Let $G$ be an algebraic group and let $X$ be a generically free $G$variety.
We show that $X$ can be transformed, by a sequence of blowups with smooth
$G$equivariant centers, into a $G$variety $X'$ with the following
property the stabilizer of every point of $X'$ is isomorphic to a
semidirect product $U \sdp A$ of a unipotent group $U$ and a
diagonalizable group $A$.
As an application of this result, we prove new lower bounds on essential
dimensions of some algebraic groups. We also show that certain
polynomials in one variable cannot be simplified by a Tschirnhaus
transformation.

On Some $q$Analogs of a Theorem of KostantRallis
In the first part of this paper generalizations of Hesselink's
$q$analog of Kostant's multiplicity formula for the action of a
semisimple Lie group on the polynomials on its Lie algebra are given
in the context of the KostantRallis theorem. They correspond to the
cases of real semisimple Lie groups with one conjugacy class of Cartan
subgroup. In the second part of the paper a $q$analog of the
KostantRallis theorem is given for the real group $\SL(4,\mathbb{R})$
(that is $\SO(4)$ acting on symmetric $4 \times 4$ matrices). This
example plays two roles. First it contrasts with the examples of the
first part. Second it has implications to the study of entanglement

On Orbit Closures of Symmetric Subgroups in Flag Varieties
We study $K$orbits in $G/P$ where $G$ is a complex connected
reductive group, $P \subseteq G$ is a parabolic subgroup, and $K
\subseteq G$ is the fixed point subgroup of an involutive
automorphism $\theta$. Generalizing work of Springer, we
parametrize the (finite) orbit set $K \setminus G \slash P$ and we
determine the isotropy groups. As a consequence, we describe the
closed (resp. affine) orbits in terms of $\theta$stable
(resp. $\theta$split) parabolic subgroups. We also describe the
decomposition of any $(K,P)$double coset in $G$ into
$(K,B)$double cosets, where $B \subseteq P$ is a Borel subgroup.
Finally, for certain $K$orbit closures $X \subseteq G/B$, and for
any homogeneous line bundle $\mathcal{L}$ on $G/B$ having nonzero
global sections, we show that the restriction map $\res_X \colon
H^0 (G/B, \mathcal{L}) \to H^0 (X, \mathcal{L})$ is surjective and
that $H^i (X, \mathcal{L}) = 0$ for $i \geq 1$. Moreover, we
describe the $K$module $H^0 (X, \mathcal{L})$. This gives
information on the restriction to $K$ of the simple $G$module $H^0
(G/B, \mathcal{L})$. Our construction is a geometric analogue of
Vogan and Sepanski's approach to extremal $K$types.

Linear Groups Generated by Reflection Tori
A reflection is an invertible linear transformation of a vector
space fixing a given hyperplane, its axis, vectorwise and a given
complement to this hyperplane, its center, setwise. A reflection
torus is a onedimensional group generated by all reflections with
fixed axis and center.
In this paper we classify subgroups of general linear groups (in
arbitrary dimension and defined over arbitrary fields) generated by
reflection tori.
