On Cardinal Invariants and Generators for von Neumann Algebras We demonstrate how most common cardinal invariants associated with a von
Neumann algebra $\mathcal M$ can be computed from the decomposability number,
$\operatorname{dens}(\mathcal M)$, and the minimal cardinality of a generating
set, $\operatorname{gen}(\mathcal M)$.
Applications include the equivalence of the well-known generator
problem, ``Is every separably-acting von Neumann algebra
singly-generated?", with the formally stronger questions, ``Is every
countably-generated von Neumann algebra singly-generated?" and ``Is
the $\operatorname{gen}$ invariant monotone?" Modulo the generator problem, we
determine the range of the invariant $\bigl( \operatorname{gen}(\mathcal M),
\operatorname{dens}(\mathcal M) \bigr)$,
which is mostly governed by the inequality $\operatorname{dens}(\mathcal M) \leq
\mathfrak C^{\operatorname{gen}(\mathcal M)}$.

Representing Multipliers of the Fourier Algebra on Non-Commutative $L^p$ Spaces We show that the multiplier algebra of the Fourier algebra on a
locally compact group $G$ can be isometrically represented on a direct
sum on non-commutative $L^p$ spaces associated with the right von
Neumann algebra of $G$. The resulting image is the idealiser of the
image of the Fourier algebra. If these spaces are given their
canonical operator space structure, then we get a completely isometric
representation of the completely bounded multiplier algebra. We make
a careful study of the non-commutative $L^p$ spaces we construct and
show that they are completely isometric to those considered recently
by Forrest, Lee, and Samei. We improve a result of theirs about module
homomorphisms. We suggest a definition of a Figa-Talamanca-Herz
algebra built out of these non-commutative $L^p$ spaces, say
$A_p(\widehat G)$. It is shown that $A_2(\widehat G)$ is isometric to
$L^1(G)$, generalising the abelian situation.

On Complemented Subspaces of Non-Archimedean Power Series Spaces The non-archimedean power series spaces, $A_1(a)$ and $A_\infty(b)$, are the
best known and most important examples of non-archimedean nuclear FrÃ©chet spaces.
We prove that the range of every continuous linear map from $A_p(a)$ to $A_q(b)$
has a Schauder basis if either $p=1$ or $p=\infty$ and the set $M_{b,a}$ of all
bounded limit points of the double sequence
$(b_i/a_j)_{i,j\in\mathbb{N}}$ is bounded. It
follows that every complemented subspace of a power series space $A_p(a)$ has a
Schauder basis if either $p=1$ or $p=\infty$ and the set $M_{a,a}$ is bounded.

Topological Free Entropy Dimensions in Nuclear C$^*$-algebras and in Full Free Products of Unital C$^*$-algebras |
Topological Free Entropy Dimensions in Nuclear C$^*$-algebras and in Full Free Products of Unital C$^*$-algebras In the paper, we introduce a new concept,
topological orbit dimension of an $n$-tuple of elements in a unital
C$^{\ast}$-algebra. Using this concept, we conclude that Voiculescu's
topological free
entropy dimension of every finite family of self-adjoint generators of a
nuclear C$^{\ast}$-algebra is less than or equal to $1$. We also show that the
Voiculescu's topological free entropy dimension is additive in the full free
product of some unital C$^{\ast}$-algebras. We show that the unital full free
product of Blackadar and Kirchberg's unital MF
algebras is also an MF algebra. As an application, we obtain that
$\mathop{\textrm{Ext}}(C_{r}^{\ast}(F_{2})\ast_{\mathbb{C}}C_{r}^{\ast}(F_{2}))$ is not a group.

Monotonically Controlled Mappings We study classes of mappings between finite and infinite dimensional
Banach spaces that are monotone and mappings which are differences
of monotone mappings (DM). We prove a RadÃ³-Reichelderfer estimate
for monotone mappings in finite dimensional spaces that remains
valid for DM mappings. This provides an alternative proof of the
FrÃ©chet differentiability a.e. of DM mappings. We establish a
Morrey-type estimate for the distributional derivative of monotone
mappings. We prove that a locally DM mapping between finite
dimensional spaces is also globally DM. We introduce and study a new
class of the so-called UDM mappings between Banach spaces, which
generalizes the concept of curves of finite variation.

A Complete Classification of AI Algebras with the Ideal Property Let $A$ be an AI algebra; that is, $A$ is the $\mbox{C}^{*}$-algebra inductive limit
of a sequence
$$
A_{1}\stackrel{\phi_{1,2}}{\longrightarrow}A_{2}\stackrel{\phi_{2,3}}{\longrightarrow}A_{3}
\longrightarrow\cdots\longrightarrow A_{n}\longrightarrow\cdots,

$A_{n}=\bigoplus_{i=1}^{k_n}M_{[n,i]}(C(X^{i}_n))$,
$X^{i}_n$ are $[0,1]$, $k_n$, and
$[n,i]$ are positive integers.
Suppose that $A$ has the
ideal property: each closed two-sided ideal of $A$ is generated by
the projections inside the ideal, as a closed two-sided ideal.
In this article, we give a complete classification of AI algebras with the ideal property.

Simplicial Complexes and Open Subsets of Non-Separable LF-Spaces
Let $F$ be a non-separable LF-space homeomorphic to
the direct sum $\sum_{n\in\mathbb{N}} \ell_2(\tau_n)$,
where $\aleph_0 < \tau_1 < \tau_2 < \cdots$.
It is proved that
every open subset $U$ of $F$ is homeomorphic to the product $|K| \times F$
for some locally finite-dimensional simplicial complex $K$ such that
every vertex $v \in K^{(0)}$ has the star $\operatorname{St}(v,K)$
with $\operatorname{card} \operatorname{St}(v,K)^{(0)} < \tau = \sup\tau_n$
(and $\operatorname{card} K^{(0)} \le \tau$),
and, conversely, if $K$ is such a simplicial complex,
then the product $|K| \times F$ can be embedded in $F$ as an open set,
where $|K|$ is the polyhedron of $K$ with the metric topology.

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.

Limit Theorems for Additive Conditionally Free Convolution
In this paper we determine the limiting distributional behavior for
sums of infinitesimal conditionally free random variables. We show that the weak
convergence of classical convolution and that of conditionally free convolution
are equivalent for measures in an infinitesimal triangular array,
where the measures may have unbounded support. Moreover, we use these
limit theorems to study the conditionally free infinite divisibility. These results
are obtained by complex analytic methods without reference to the
combinatorics of c-free convolution.

Free Bessel Laws
We introduce and study a remarkable family of real probability
measures $\pi_{st}$ that we call free Bessel laws. These are related
to the free Poisson law $\pi$ via the formulae
$\pi_{s1}=\pi^{\boxtimes s}$ and ${\pi_{1t}=\pi^{\boxplus t}}$. Our
study includes definition and basic properties, analytic aspects
(supports, atoms, densities), combinatorial aspects (functional
transforms, moments, partitions), and a discussion of the relation
with random matrices and quantum groups.

Multiplicative Isometries and Isometric Zero-Divisors
For some Banach spaces of analytic functions in the unit disk
(weighted Bergman spaces, Bloch space, Dirichlet-type spaces), the
isometric pointwise multipliers are found to be unimodular constants.
As a consequence, it is shown that none of those spaces have isometric
zero-divisors. Isometric coefficient multipliers are also
investigated.

BMO Functions and Carleson Measures with Values in Uniformly Convex Spaces This paper studies the relationship between vector-valued BMO functions and the Carleson measures defined by their gradients. Let $dA$ and $dm$ denote Lebesgue measures on the unit disc $D$ and the unit circle $\mathbf{T}$, respectively. For $1< q<\infty$ and a Banach space $B$, we prove that there exists a positive constant $c$ such that $$\sup_{z_0\in D}\int_{D}(1-|z|)^{q-1}\|\nabla f(z)\|^q P_{z_0}(z) dA(z) \le c^q\sup_{z_0\in D}\int_{\mathbf{T}}\|f(z)-f(z_0)\|^qP_{z_0}(z) dm(z)$$ holds for all trigonometric polynomials $f$ with coefficients in $B$ if and only if $B$ admits an equivalent norm which is $q$-uniformly convex, where $$P_{z_0}(z)=\frac{1-|z_0|^2}{|1-\bar{z_0}z|^2} .$$ The validity of the converse inequality is equivalent to the existence of an equivalent $q$-uniformly smooth norm.

On Locally Uniformly Rotund Renormings in C(K) Spaces A characterization of the Banach spaces of type $C(K)$ that admit an equivalent locally uniformly rotund norm is obtained, and a method to apply it to concrete spaces is developed. As an application the existence of such renorming is deduced when $K$ is a Namioka--Phelps compact or for some particular class of Rosenthal compacta, results which were originally proved with \emph{ad hoc} methods.

Singular Integral Operators and Essential Commutativity on the Sphere Let ${\mathcal T}$ be the $C^\ast $-algebra generated by the Toeplitz operators $\{T_\varphi : \varphi \in L^\infty (S,d\sigma )\}$ on the Hardy space $H^2(S)$ of the unit sphere in $\mathbf{C}^n$. It is well known that ${\mathcal T}$ is contained in the essential commutant of $\{T_\varphi : \varphi \in \operatorname{VMO}\cap L^\infty (S,d\sigma )\}$. We show that the essential commutant of $\{T_\varphi : \varphi \in \operatorname{VMO}\cap L^\infty (S,d\sigma )\}$ is strictly larger than ${\mathcal T}$.

Reducibility in A_{R}(K), C_{R}(K), and A(K) Let $K$ denote a compact real symmetric subset of $\mathbb{C}$ and let
$A_{\mathbb R}(K)$ denote the real Banach algebra of all real
symmetric continuous functions on $K$ that are analytic in the
interior $K^\circ$ of $K$, endowed with the supremum norm. We
characterize all unimodular pairs $(f,g)$ in $A_{\mathbb R}(K)^2$
which are reducible.
In addition, for an arbitrary compact $K$ in $\mathbb C$, we give a
new proof (not relying on Banach algebra theory or elementary stable
rank techniques) of the fact that the Bass stable rank of $A(K)$ is
$1$.
Finally, we also characterize all compact real symmetric sets $K$ such
that $A_{\mathbb R}(K)$, respectively $C_{\mathbb R}(K)$, has Bass
stable rank $1$.

Approximation and Similarity Classification of Stably Finitely Strongly Irreducible Decomposable Operators Let $\mathcal H$ be a complex separable Hilbert space and ${\mathcal L}({\mathcal H})$ denote the collection of bounded linear operators on ${\mathcal H}$. In this paper, we show that for any operator $A\in{\mathcal L}({\mathcal H})$, there exists a stably finitely (SI) decomposable operator $A_\epsilon$, such that $\|A-A_{\epsilon}\|<\epsilon$ and ${\mathcal{\mathcal A}'(A_{\epsilon})}/\operatorname{rad} {{\mathcal A}'(A_{\epsilon})}$ is commutative, where $\operatorname{rad}{{\mathcal A}'(A_{\epsilon})}$ is the Jacobson radical of ${{\mathcal A}'(A_{\epsilon})}$. Moreover, we give a similarity classification of the stably finitely decomposable operators that generalizes the result on similarity classification of Cowen-Douglas operators given by C. L. Jiang.

Periodicity in Rank 2 Graph Algebras Kumjian and Pask introduced an aperiodicity condition
for higher rank graphs.
We present a detailed analysis of when this occurs
in certain rank 2 graphs.
When the algebra is aperiodic, we give another proof
of the simplicity of $\mathrm{C}^*(\mathbb{F}^+_{\theta})$.
The periodic $\mathrm{C}^*$-algebras are characterized, and it is shown
that $\mathrm{C}^*(\mathbb{F}^+_{\theta}) \simeq
\mathrm{C}(\mathbb{T})\otimes\mathfrak{A}$
where $\mathfrak{A}$ is a simple $\mathrm{C}^*$-algebra.

On the Local Lifting Properties of Operator Spaces In this paper, we mainly study operator spaces which have the
locally lifting property (LLP). The dual of any ternary ring of operators is shown to
satisfy the strongly local reflexivity, and this is used to prove
that strongly local reflexivity holds also for operator spaces
which have the LLP. Several homological characterizations of the
LLP and weak expectation property are given. We also prove that for any operator space
$V$, $V^{**}$ has the LLP if and only if $V$ has the LLP and
$V^{*}$ is exact.

Subspaces of de~Branges Spaces Generated by Majorants For a given de~Branges space $\mc H(E)$ we investigate
de~Branges subspaces defined in terms of majorants

describe all subspaces of this form. Moreover,

Characterizing Complete Erd\H os Space The space now known as {\em complete Erd\H os
space\/} $\cerdos$ was introduced by Paul Erd\H os in 1940 as the
closed subspace of the Hilbert space $\ell^2$ consisting of all
vectors such that every coordinate is in the convergent sequence
$\{0\}\cup\{1/n:n\in\N\}$. In a solution to a problem posed by Lex G.
Oversteegen we present simple and useful topological
characterizations of $\cerdos$.
As an application we determine the class
of factors of $\cerdos$. In another application we determine
precisely which of the spaces that can be constructed in the Banach
spaces $\ell^p$ according to the `Erd\H os method' are homeomorphic
to $\cerdos$. A novel application states that if $I$ is a
Polishable $F_\sigma$-ideal on $\omega$, then $I$ with the Polish
topology is homeomorphic to either $\Z$, the Cantor set $2^\omega$,
$\Z\times2^\omega$, or $\cerdos$. This last result answers a
question that was asked
by Stevo Todor{\v{c}}evi{\'c}.
