Spaces of Whitney Functions on Cantor-Type Sets We introduce the concept of logarithmic dimension of a compact set.
In terms of this magnitude, the extension property and the diametral
dimension of spaces $\calE(K)$ can be described for Cantor-type
compact sets.

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 $L^1 (\omega\eta)$.

On the Classification of Simple Stably Projectionless $\C^*$-Algebras It is shown that simple stably projectionless $\C^S*$-algebras which
are inductive limits of certain specified building blocks with trivial
$\K$-theory are classified by their cone of positive traces with
distinguished subset. This is the first example of an isomorphism
theorem verifying the conjecture of Elliott for a subclass of the
stably projectionless algebras.

Classification of Certain Simple $C^*$-Algebras with Torsion in $K_1$ We show that the Elliott invariant is a classifying invariant for the
class of $C^*$-algebras that are simple unital infinite dimensional
inductive limits of finite direct sums of building blocks of the form
$$
\{f \in C(\T) \otimes M_n : f(x_i) \in M_{d_i}, i = 1,2,\dots,N\},
$$
where $x_1,x_2,\dots,x_N \in \T$, $d_1,d_2,\dots,d_N$ are integers
dividing $n$, and $M_{d_i}$ is embedded unitally into $M_n$.
Furthermore we prove existence and uniqueness theorems for
$*$-homomorphisms between such algebras and we identify the range of
the invariant.

Ranks of Algebras of Continuous $C^*$-Algebra Valued Functions We prove a number of results about the stable and particularly the
real ranks of tensor products of \ca s under the assumption that one
of the factors is commutative. In particular, we prove the following:
{\raggedright
\begin{enumerate}[(5)]
\item[(1)] If $X$ is any locally compact $\sm$-compact Hausdorff space
and $A$ is any \ca, then\break
$\RR \bigl( C_0 (X) \otimes A \bigr) \leq
\dim (X) + \RR(A)$.
\item[(2)] If $X$ is any locally compact Hausdorff space and $A$ is
any \pisca, then $\RR \bigl( C_0 (X) \otimes A \bigr) \leq 1$.
\item[(3)] $\RR \bigl( C ([0,1]) \otimes A \bigr) \geq 1$ for any
nonzero \ca\ $A$, and $\sr \bigl( C ([0,1]^2) \otimes A \bigr) \geq 2$
for any unital \ca\ $A$.
\item[(4)] If $A$ is a unital \ca\ such that $\RR(A) = 0$, $\sr (A) =
1$, and $K_1 (A) = 0$, then\break
$\sr \bigl( C ([0,1]) \otimes A \bigr) = 1$.
\item[(5)] There is a simple separable unital nuclear \ca\ $A$ such
that $\RR(A) = 1$ and\break
$\sr \bigl( C ([0,1]) \otimes A \bigr) = 1$.

for $p \in J =\bigl[\frac{a_l+b_l}{a_l+(\frac{b_l r}{2})},\frac{a_l+b_l}

Asymptotic $K$-Theory for Groups Acting on $\tA_2$ Buildings Let $\Gamma$ be a torsion free lattice in $G=\PGL(3, \mathbb{F})$ where
$\mathbb{F}$ is a nonarchimedean local field. Then $\Gamma$ acts freely
on the affine Bruhat-Tits building $\mathcal{B}$ of $G$ and there is an
induced action on the boundary $\Omega$ of $\mathcal{B}$. The crossed
product $C^*$-algebra $\mathcal{A}(\Gamma)=C(\Omega) \rtimes \Gamma$
depends only on $\Gamma$ and is classified by its $K$-theory. This article
shows how to compute the $K$-theory of $\mathcal{A}(\Gamma)$ and of the
larger class of rank two Cuntz-Krieger algebras.

Multi-Sided Braid Type Subfactors We generalise the two-sided construction of examples of pairs of
subfactors of the hyperfinite II$_1$ factor $R$ in [E1]---which arise
by considering unitary braid representations with certain
properties---to multi-sided pairs. We show that the index for the
multi-sided pair can be expressed as a power of that for the
two-sided pair. This construction can be applied to the natural
examples---where the braid representations are obtained in connection
with the representation theory of Lie algebras of types $A$, $B$, $C$,
$D$. We also compute the (first) relative commutants.

K-Theory of Non-Commutative 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 nine-dimensional 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 $H^{\ev}$.)

Ideal Structure of Multiplier Algebras of Simple $C^*$-algebras With Real Rank Zero We give a description of the monoid of Murray-von Neumann equivalence
classes of projections for multiplier algebras of a wide class of
$\sigma$-unital simple $C^\ast$-algebras $A$ with real rank zero and stable
rank one. The lattice of ideals of this monoid, which is known to be
crucial for understanding the ideal structure of the multiplier
algebra $\mul$, is therefore analyzed. In important cases it is shown
that, if $A$ has finite scale then the quotient of $\mul$ modulo any
closed ideal $I$ that properly contains $A$ has stable rank one. The
intricacy of the ideal structure of $\mul$ is reflected in the fact
that $\mul$ can have uncountably many different quotients, each one
having uncountably many closed ideals forming a chain with respect to
inclusion.

$R$-Diagonal Elements and Freeness With Amalgamation The concept of $R$-diagonal element was introduced in \cite{NS2},
and was subsequently found to have applications to several problems
in free probability. In this paper we describe a new approach to
$R$-diagonality, which relies on freeness with amalgamation.
The class of $R$-diagonal elements is enlarged to contain examples
living in non-tracial $*$-probability spaces, such as the
generalized circular elements of \cite{Sh1}.

Ext and OrderExt Classes of Certain Automorphisms of $C^*$-Algebras Arising from Cantor Minimal Systems |
Ext and OrderExt Classes of Certain Automorphisms of $C^*$-Algebras Arising from Cantor Minimal Systems Giordano, Putnam and Skau showed that the transformation group
$C^*$-algebra arising from a Cantor minimal system is an $AT$-algebra,
and classified it by its $K$-theory. For approximately inner
automorphisms that preserve $C(X)$, we will determine their classes in
the Ext and OrderExt groups, and introduce a new invariant for the
closure of the topological full group. We will also prove that every
automorphism in the kernel of the homomorphism into the Ext group is
homotopic to an inner automorphism, which extends Kishimoto's result.

A Continuous Field of Projectionless $C^*$-Algebras We use some results about stable relations to show that some of the
simple, stable, projectionless crossed products of $O_2$ by $\bR$
considered by Kishimoto and Kumjian are inductive limits of type I
$C^*$-algebras. The type I $C^*$-algebras that arise are pullbacks
of finite direct sums of matrix algebras over the continuous
functions on the unit interval by finite dimensional $C^*$-algebras.

Classification of Simple Tracially AF $C^*$-Algebras We prove that pre-classifiable (see 3.1) simple nuclear tracially AF
\CA s (TAF) are classified by their $K$-theory. As a consequence all
simple, locally AH and TAF \CA s are in fact AH algebras (it is known
that there are locally AH algebras that are not AH). We also prove
the following Rationalization Theorem. Let $A$ and $B$ be two unital
separable nuclear simple TAF \CA s with unique normalized traces
satisfying the Universal Coefficient Theorem. If $A$ and $B$ have the
same (ordered and scaled) $K$-theory and $K_0 (A)_+$ is locally
finitely generated, then $A \otimes Q \cong B \otimes Q$, where $Q$ is
the UHF-algebra with the rational $K_0$. Classification results (with
restriction on $K_0$-theory) for the above \CA s are also obtained.
For example, we show that, if $A$ and $B$ are unital nuclear separable
simple TAF \CA s with the unique normalized trace satisfying the UCT
and with $K_1(A) = K_1(B)$, and $A$ and $B$ have the same rational
(scaled ordered) $K_0$, then $A \cong B$. Similar results are also
obtained for some cases in which $K_0$ is non-divisible such as
$K_0(A) = \mathbf{Z} [1/2]$.

Perforated Ordered $\K_0$-Groups A simple $\C^*$-algebra is constructed for which the Murray-von
Neumann equivalence classes of projections, with the usual
addition---induced by addition of orthogonal projections---form the
additive semi-group
$$
\{0,2,3,\dots\}.
$$
(This is a particularly simple instance of the phenomenon of
perforation of the ordered $\K_0$-group, which has long been known in
the commutative case---for instance, in the case of the
four-sphere---and was recently observed by the second author in the
case of a simple $\C^*$-algebra.)

Compact Groups of Operators on Subproportional Quotients of $l^m_1$ It is proved that a ``typical'' $n$-dimensional quotient $X_n$ of

$$
\Average \int_G \|Tx\|_{X_n} \,dh_G(T) \geq

for every compact group $G$ of operators acting on $X_n$, where
$d_G(T)$ stands for the normalized Haar measure on $G$ and the average
is taken over all extreme points of the unit ball of $X_n$. Several
consequences of this estimate are presented.

The Dunford-Pettis Property for Symmetric Spaces A complete description of symmetric spaces on a separable measure
space with the Dunford-Pettis property is given. It is shown that
$\ell^1$, $c_0$ and $\ell^{\infty}$ are the only symmetric sequence
spaces with the Dunford-Pettis property, and that in the class of
symmetric spaces on $(0, \alpha)$, $0 < \alpha \leq \infty$, the only
spaces with the Dunford-Pettis property are $L^1$, $L^{\infty}$, $L^1
\cap L^{\infty}$, $L^1 + L^{\infty}$, $(L^{\infty})^\circ$ and $(L^1 +
L^{\infty})^\circ$, where $X^\circ$ denotes the norm closure of $L^1
\cap L^{\infty}$ in $X$. It is also proved that all Banach dual
spaces of $L^1 \cap L^{\infty}$ and $L^1 + L^{\infty}$ have the
Dunford-Pettis property. New examples of Banach spaces showing that
the Dunford-Pettis property is not a three-space property are also
presented. As applications we obtain that the spaces $(L^1 +
L^{\infty})^\circ$ and $(L^{\infty})^\circ$ have a unique symmetric
structure, and we get a characterization of the Dunford-Pettis
property of some K\"othe-Bochner spaces.

Operator Estimates for Fredholm Modules We study estimates of the type
$$
\Vert \phi(D) - \phi(D_0) \Vert_{\emt} \leq C \cdot \Vert D - D_0
\Vert^{\alpha}, \quad \alpha = \frac12, 1
$$
where $\phi(t) = t(1 + t^2)^{-1/2}$, $D_0 = D_0^*$ is an unbounded
linear operator affiliated with a semifinite von Neumann algebra
$\calM$, $D - D_0$ is a bounded self-adjoint linear operator from
$\calM$ and $(1 + D_0^2)^{-1/2} \in \emt$, where $\emt$ is a symmetric
operator space associated with $\calM$. In particular, we prove that
$\phi(D) - \phi(D_0)$ belongs to the non-commutative $L_p$-space for
some $p \in (1,\infty)$, provided $(1 + D_0^2)^{-1/2}$ belongs to the
non-commutative weak $L_r$-space for some $r \in [1,p)$. In the case
$\calM = \calB (\calH)$ and $1 \leq p \leq 2$, we show that this
result continues to hold under the weaker assumption $(1 +
D_0^2)^{-1/2} \in \calC_p$. This may be regarded as an odd
counterpart of A.~Connes' result for the case of even Fredholm
modules.

Chern Characters of Fourier Modules Let $A_\theta$ denote the rotation algebra---the 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 modules---and more
importantly, the Fourier module---are 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 non-commutative 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.

Induced Coactions of Discrete Groups on $C^*$-Algebras Using the close relationship between coactions of discrete groups and
Fell bundles, we introduce a procedure for inducing a $C^*$-coaction
$\delta\colon D\to D\otimes C^*(G/N)$ of a quotient group $G/N$ of a
discrete group $G$ to a $C^*$-coaction $\Ind\delta\colon\Ind D\to \Ind
D\otimes C^*(G)$ of $G$. We show that induced coactions behave in many
respects similarly to induced actions. In particular, as an analogue of
the well known imprimitivity theorem for induced actions we prove that
the crossed products $\Ind D\times_{\Ind\delta}G$ and $D\times_{\delta}G/N$
are always Morita equivalent. We also obtain nonabelian analogues of a
theorem of Olesen and Pedersen which show that there is a duality between
induced coactions and twisted actions in the sense of Green. We further
investigate amenability of Fell bundles corresponding to induced coactions.

Quotient Hereditarily Indecomposable Banach Spaces A Banach space $X$ is said to be {\it quotient hereditarily

of $X$ is decomposable. We provide an example of a quotient
hereditarily indecomposable space, namely the space $X_{\GM}$
constructed by W.~T.~Gowers and B.~Maurey in \cite{GM}. Then we
provide an example of a reflexive hereditarily indecomposable space
$\hat{X}$ whose dual is not hereditarily indecomposable; so
$\hat{X}$ is not quotient hereditarily indecomposable. We also
show that every operator on $\hat{X}^*$ is a strictly singular
perturbation of an homothetic map.
