$C^*$Algebras of Irreversible Dynamical Systems We show that certain $C^*$algebras which have been studied by,
among others, Arzumanian, Vershik, Deaconu, and Renault, in
connection with a measurepreserving transformation of a measure space
or a covering map of a compact space, are special cases of the
endomorphism crossedproduct construction recently introduced by the
first named author. As a consequence these algebras are given
presentations in terms of generators and relations. These results
come as a consequence of a general theorem on faithfulness of
representations which are covariant with respect to certain circle
actions. For the case of topologically free covering maps we prove a
stronger result on faithfulness of representations which needs no
covariance. We also give a necessary and sufficient condition for
simplicity.

Strictly Singular and Cosingular Multiplications Let $L(X)$ be the space of bounded linear operators on the Banach space $X$.
We study the strict singularity andcosingularity of the twosided multiplication
operators $S \mapsto ASB$ on $L(X)$, where $A,B \in L(X)$ are fixed bounded
operators and $X$ is a classical Banach space. Let $1

Hyperbolic Group $C^*$Algebras and FreeProduct $C^*$Algebras as Compact Quantum Metric Spaces Let $\ell$ be a length function on a group $G$, and let $M_{\ell}$
denote the
operator of pointwise multiplication by $\ell$ on $\bell^2(G)$.
Following Connes,
$M_{\ell}$ can be used as a ``Dirac'' operator for $C_r^*(G)$. It defines a
Lipschitz seminorm on $C_r^*(G)$, which defines a metric on the state space of
$C_r^*(G)$. We show that if $G$ is a hyperbolic group and if $\ell$ is
a wordlength function on $G$, then the topology from this metric
coincides with the
weak$*$ topology (our definition of a ``compact quantum metric
space''). We show that a convenient framework is that of filtered
$C^*$algebras which satisfy a suitable ``Haageruptype'' condition. We
also use this
framework to prove an analogous fact for certain reduced
free products of $C^*$algebras.

Representation of Banach Ideal Spaces and Factorization of Operators Representation theorems are proved for Banach ideal spaces with the Fatou property
which are built by the Calder{\'o}nLozanovski\u\i\ construction.
Factorization theorems for operators in spaces more general than the Lebesgue
$L^{p}$ spaces are investigated. It is natural to extend the Gagliardo
theorem on the Schur test and the Rubio de~Francia theorem on factorization of the
Muckenhoupt $A_{p}$ weights to reflexive Orlicz spaces. However, it turns out that for
the scales far from $L^{p}$spaces this is impossible. For the concrete integral operators
it is shown that factorization theorems and the Schur test in some reflexive Orlicz spaces
are not valid. Representation theorems for the Calder{\'o}nLozanovski\u\i\ construction
are involved in the proofs.

On the Structure of the Spreading Models of a Banach Space We study some questions concerning the structure of the
set of spreading models of a separable infinitedimensional Banach
space $X$. In particular we give an example of a reflexive $X$ so that
all spreading models of $X$ contain $\ell_1$ but none of them is
isomorphic to $\ell_1$. We also prove that for any countable set $C$
of spreading models generated by weakly null sequences there is a
spreading model generated by a weakly null sequence which dominates
each element of $C$. In certain cases this ensures that $X$ admits,
for each $\alpha < \omega_1$, a spreading model $(\tilde
x_i^{(\alpha)})_i$ such that if $\alpha < \beta$ then $(\tilde
x_i^{(\alpha)})_i$ is dominated by (and not equivalent to)
$(\tilde x_i^{(\beta)})_i$. Some applications of these ideas are used to
give sufficient conditions on a Banach space for the existence of a
subspace and an operator defined on the subspace, which is not a
compact perturbation of a multiple of the inclusion map.

Extensions by Simple $C^*$Algebras: Quasidiagonal Extensions Let $A$ be an amenable separable $C^*$algebra and $B$ be a nonunital
but $\sigma$unital simple $C^*$algebra with continuous scale.
We show that two essential extensions
$\tau_1$ and $\tau_2$ of $A$ by $B$ are approximately
unitarily equivalent if and only if
$$
[\tau_1]=[\tau_2] \text{ in } KL(A, M(B)/B).
$$
If $A$ is assumed to satisfy the Universal Coefficient Theorem,
there is a bijection from approximate unitary equivalence
classes of the above mentioned extensions to
$KL(A, M(B)/B)$.
Using $KL(A, M(B)/B)$, we compute exactly when an essential extension
is quasidiagonal. We show that quasidiagonal extensions
may not be approximately trivial.
We also study the approximately trivial extensions.

On Amenability and CoAmenability of Algebraic Quantum Groups and Their Corepresentations We introduce and study several notions of amenability for unitary
corepresentations and $*$representations of algebraic quantum groups,
which may be used to characterize amenability and coamenability for
such quantum groups. As a background for this study, we investigate
the associated tensor C$^{*}$categories.

Central Sequence Algebras of a Purely Infinite Simple $C^{*}$algebra We are concerned with a unital separable nuclear purely infinite
simple $C^{*}$algebra\ $A$ satisfying UCT with a Rohlin flow, as a
continuation of~\cite{Kismh}. Our first result (which is
independent of the Rohlin flow) is to characterize when two {\em
central} projections in $A$ are equivalent by a {\em central}
partial isometry. Our second result shows that the Ktheory of
the central sequence algebra $A'\cap A^\omega$ (for an $\omega\in
\beta\N\setminus\N$) and its {\em fixed point} algebra under the
flow are the same (incorporating the previous result). We will
also complete and supplement the characterization result of the
Rohlin property for flows stated in~ \cite{Kismh}.

Fubini's Theorem for Ultraproducts \\of Noncommutative $L_p$Spaces Let $(\M_i)_{i\in I}$, $(\N_j)_{j\in J}$ be families of von
Neumann algebras and $\U$, $\U'$ be ultrafilters in $I$, $J$,
respectively. Let $1\le p<\infty$ and $\nen$. Let $x_1$,\dots,$x_n$ in
$\prod L_p(\M_i)$ and $y_1$,\dots,$y_n$ in $\prod L_p(\N_j)$ be
bounded families. We show the following equality
$$
\lim_{i,\U} \lim_{j,\U'} \Big\ \summ_{k=1}^n x_k(i)\otimes
y_k(j)\Big\_{L_p(\M_i\otimes \N_j)} = \lim_{j,\U'} \lim_{i,\U}
\Big\ \summ_{k=1}^n x_k(i)\otimes y_k(j)\Big\_{L_p(\M_i\otimes \N_j)} .
$$
For $p=1$ this Fubini type result is related to the local
reflexivity of duals of $C^*$algebras. This fails for $p=\infty$.

KHomology of the Rotation Algebras $A_{\theta}$ We study the Khomology of the rotation algebras
$A_{\theta}$ using the sixterm cyclic sequence
for the Khomology of a crossed product by
${\bf Z}$. In the case that $\theta$ is irrational,
we use Pimsner and Voiculescu's work on AFembeddings
of the $A_{\theta}$ to search for the missing
generator of the even Khomology.

Type Decomposition and the Rectangular AFD Property for $W^*$TRO's We study the type decomposition and the rectangular AFD property for
$W^*$TRO's. Like von Neumann algebras, every $W^*$TRO can be
uniquely decomposed into the direct sum of $W^*$TRO's of
type $I$, type $II$, and type $III$.
We may further consider $W^*$TRO's of type $I_{m, n}$
with cardinal numbers $m$ and $n$, and consider $W^*$TRO's of
type $II_{\lambda, \mu}$ with $\lambda, \mu = 1$ or $\infty$.
It is shown that every separable stable $W^*$TRO
(which includes type $I_{\infty,\infty}$, type $II_{\infty,
\infty}$ and type $III$) is TROisomorphic to a von Neumann algebra.
We also introduce the rectangular version of the approximately finite
dimensional property for $W^*$TRO's.
One of our major results is to show that a separable $W^*$TRO
is injective if and only
if it is rectangularly approximately finite dimensional.
As a consequence of this result, we show that a dual operator space
is injective if and only if its operator predual is a rigid
rectangular ${\OL}_{1, 1^+}$ space (equivalently, a rectangular

Bump Functions with HÃ¶lder Derivatives We study the range of the gradients
of a $C^{1,\al}$smooth bump function defined on a Banach space.
We find that this set must satisfy two geometrical conditions:
It can not be too flat and it satisfies a strong compactness condition
with respect to an appropriate distance.
These notions are defined precisely below.
With these results we illustrate the differences with
the case of $C^1$smooth bump functions.
Finally, we give a sufficient condition on a subset of $X^{\ast}$ so that it is
the set of the gradients of a $C^{1,1}$smooth bump function.
In particular, if $X$ is an infinite dimensional Banach space
with a $C^{1,1}$smooth bump function,
then any convex open bounded subset of $X^{\ast}$ containing $0$ is the set
of the gradients of a $C^{1,1}$smooth bump function.

InfiniteDimensional Polyhedrality This paper deals with generalizations of the notion of a polytope to infinite
dimensions. The most general definition is the following: a bounded closed
convex subset of a Banach space is called a \emph{polytope} if each of its
finitedimensional affine sections is a (standard) polytope.
We study the relationships between eight known definitions
of infinitedimensional
polyhedrality. We provide a complete isometric
classification of them, which gives
solutions to several open problems.
An almost complete isomorphic classification
is given as well (only one implication remains open).

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
$1\leq p\leq 2$.

Locally Compact Pro$C^*$Algebras Let $X$ be a locally compact noncompact Hausdorff topological space. Consider
the algebras $C(X)$, $C_b(X)$, $C_0(X)$, and $C_{00}(X)$ of respectively arbitrary,
bounded, vanishing at infinity, and compactly supported continuous functions on $X$.
Of these, the second and third are $C^*$algebras, the fourth is a normed algebra,
whereas the first is only a topological algebra (it is indeed a pro$C^\ast$algebra).
The interesting fact about these algebras is that if one of them is given, the
others can be obtained using functional analysis tools. For instance, given the
$C^\ast$algebra $C_0(X)$, one can get the other three algebras by
$C_{00}(X)=K\bigl(C_0(X)\bigr)$, $C_b(X)=M\bigl(C_0(X)\bigr)$, $C(X)=\Gamma\bigl(
K(C_0(X))\bigr)$, where the right hand sides are the Pedersen ideal, the
multiplier algebra, and the unbounded multiplier algebra of the Pedersen ideal of
$C_0(X)$, respectively. In this article we consider the possibility of these
transitions for general $C^\ast$algebras. The difficult part is to start with a
pro$C^\ast$algebra $A$ and to construct a $C^\ast$algebra $A_0$ such that
$A=\Gamma\bigl(K(A_0)\bigr)$. The pro$C^\ast$algebras for which this is
possible are called {\it locally compact\/} and we have characterized them using
a concept similar to that of an approximate identity.

Lie Groups of Measurable Mappings We describe new construction principles for infinitedimensional Lie
groups. In particular, given any measure space $(X,\Sigma,\mu)$ and
(possibly infinitedimensional) Lie group $G$, we construct a Lie
group $L^\infty (X,G)$, which is a Fr\'echetLie group if $G$ is so.
We also show that the weak direct product $\prod^*_{i\in I} G_i$ of an
arbitrary family $(G_i)_{i\in I}$ of Lie groups can be made a Lie
group, modelled on the locally convex direct sum $\bigoplus_{i\in I}
L(G_i)$.

$C_S (l^\Phi)$, $C_S \bigl( L^\Phi(\Omega) \bigr)$ in sense of

giving estimates of these constants and to obtain their exact value in
a class of spaces $l^{\Phi}$ and $L^\Phi (\Omega)$.

Multipliers on Vector Valued Bergman Spaces Let $X$ be a complex Banach space and let $B_p(X)$ denote the
vectorvalued Bergman space on the unit disc for $1\le p<\infty$. A
sequence $(T_n)_n$ of bounded operators between two Banach spaces $X$
and $Y$ defines a multiplier between $B_p(X)$ and $B_q(Y)$
(resp.\ $B_p(X)$ and $\ell_q(Y)$) if for any function $f(z) =
\sum_{n=0}^\infty x_n z^n$ in $B_p(X)$ we have that $g(z) =
\sum_{n=0}^\infty T_n (x_n) z^n$ belongs to $B_q(Y)$ (resp.\
$\bigl( T_n (x_n) \bigr)_n \in \ell_q(Y)$). Several results on these
multipliers are obtained, some of them depending upon the Fourier or
Rademacher type of the spaces $X$ and $Y$. New properties defined by
the vectorvalued version of certain inequalities for Taylor
coefficients of functions in $B_p(X)$ are introduced.

unimodular Lie group $G$. We define Besov spaces corresponding to the subLaplacian

Cuntz Algebra States Defined by Implementers of Endomorphisms of the $\CAR$ Algebra We investigate representations of the Cuntz algebra $\mathcal{O}_2$
on antisymmetric Fock space $F_a (\mathcal{K}_1)$ defined by
isometric implementers of certain quasifree endomorphisms of the
CAR algebra in pure quasifree states $\varphi_{P_1}$. We pay
corresponding to these representations and the Fock special
attention to the vector states on $\mathcal{O}_2$ vacuum, for which
we obtain explicit formulae. Restricting these states to the
gaugeinvariant subalgebra $\mathcal{F}_2$, we find that for
natural choices of implementers, they are again pure quasifree and
are, in fact, essentially the states $\varphi_{P_1}$. We proceed to
consider the case for an arbitrary pair of implementers, and deduce
that these Cuntz algebra representations are irreducible, as are their
restrictions to $\mathcal{F}_2$.
The endomorphisms of $B \bigl( F_a (\mathcal{K}_1) \bigr)$ associated
with these representations of $\mathcal{O}_2$ are also considered.
