Continuity of convolution of test functions on Lie groups
For a Lie group $G$, we show that the map $C^\infty_c(G)\times C^\infty_c(G)\to C^\infty_c(G)$, $(\gamma,\eta)\mapsto \gamma*\eta$ taking a pair of test functions to their convolution is continuous if and only if $G$ is $\sigma$-compact. More generally, consider $r,s,t \in \mathbb{N}_0\cup\{\infty\}$ with $t\leq r+s$, locally convex spaces $E_1$, $E_2$ and a continuous bilinear map $b\colon E_1\times E_2\to F$ to a complete locally convex space $F$. Let $\beta\colon C^r_c(G,E_1)\times C^s_c(G,E_2)\to C^t_c(G,F)$, $(\gamma,\eta)\mapsto \gamma *_b\eta$ be the associated convolution map. The main result is a characterization of those $(G,r,s,t,b)$ for which $\beta$ is continuous. Convolution of compactly supported continuous functions on a locally compact group is also discussed, as well as convolution of compactly supported $L^1$-functions and convolution of compactly supported Radon measures.

Strong and Extremely Strong Ditkin sets for the Banach Algebras $A_p^r(G)=A_p\cap L^r(G)$
Let $A_p(G)$ be the Figa-Talamanca, Herz Banach Algebra on $G$; thus $A_2(G)$ is the Fourier algebra. Strong Ditkin (SD) and Extremely Strong Ditkin (ESD) sets for the Banach algebras $A_p^r(G)$ are investigated for abelian and nonabelian locally compact groups $G$. It is shown that SD and ESD sets for $A_p(G)$ remain SD and ESD sets for $A_p^r(G)$, with strict inclusion for ESD sets. The case for the strict inclusion of SD sets is left open. A result on the weak sequential completeness of $A_2(F)$ for ESD sets $F$ is proved and used to show that Varopoulos, Helson, and Sidon sets are not ESD sets for $A_2(G)$, yet they are such for $A_2^r(G)$ for discrete groups $G$, for any $1\le r\le 2$. A result is given on the equivalence of the sequential and the net definitions of SD or ESD sets for $\sigma$-compact groups. The above results are new even if $G$ is abelian.

Keywords:Fourier algebra, Figa-Talamanca-Herz algebra, locally compact group, Ditkin sets, Helson sets, Sidon sets, weak sequential completeness

Convergence Factors and Compactness in Weighted Convolution Algebras
We study convergence in weighted convolution algebras $L^1(\omega)$ on $R^+$, with the weights chosen such that the corresponding weighted space $M(\omega)$ of measures is also a Banach algebra and is the dual space of a natural related space of continuous functions. We determine convergence factor $\eta$ for which weak$^\ast$-convergence of $\{\lambda_n\}$ to $\lambda$ in $M(\omega)$ implies norm convergence of $\lambda_n \ast f$ to $\lambda \ast f$ in $L^1 (\omega\eta)$. We find necessary and sufficent conditions which depend on $\omega$ and $f$ and also find necessary and sufficent conditions for $\eta$ to be a convergence factor for all $L^1(\omega)$ and all $f$ in $L^1(\omega)$. We also give some applications to the structure of weighted convolution algebras. As a preliminary result we observe that $\eta$ is a convergence factor for $\omega$ and $f$ if and only if convolution by $f$ is a compact operator from $M(\omega)$ (or $L^1(\omega)$) to $L^1 (\omega\eta)$.
