Dimension Functions of SelfAffine Scaling Sets
In this paper, the dimension function of a selfaffine generalized scaling set associated with an $n\times n$ integral expansive dilation $A$ is studied. More specifically, we consider the dimension function of an $A$dilation generalized scaling set $K$ assuming that $K$ is a selfaffine tile satisfying $BK = (K+d_1) \cup (K+d_2)$, where $B=A^t$, $A$ is an $n\times n$ integral expansive matrix with $\lvert \det A\rvert=2$, and $d_1,d_2\in\mathbb{R}^n$. We show that the dimension function of $K$ must be constant if either $n=1$ or $2$ or one of the digits is $0$, and that it is bounded by $2\lvert K\rvert$ for any $n$.

Hypercyclic Abelian Groups of Affine Maps on $\mathbb{C}^{n}$
We give a characterization of hypercyclic abelian group
$\mathcal{G}$ of affine maps on $\mathbb{C}^{n}$. If $\mathcal{G}$
is finitely generated, this characterization is explicit. We prove
in particular
that no abelian group generated by $n$ affine maps on $\mathbb{C}^{n}$ has a dense orbit.

A Note on Locally Nilpotent Derivations\\ and Variables of $k[X,Y,Z]$
We strengthen certain results
concerning actions of $(\Comp,+)$ on $\Comp^{3}$
and embeddings of $\Comp^{2}$ in $\Comp^{3}$,
and show that these results are in fact valid
over any field of characteristic zero.

Two Volume Product Inequalities and Their Applications
Let $K \subset {\mathbb{R}}^{n+1}$ be a convex body of class $C^2$
with everywhere positive Gauss curvature. We show that there exists
a positive number $\delta (K)$ such that for any $\delta \in (0,
\delta(K))$ we have $\Volu(K_{\delta})\cdot
\Volu((K_{\delta})^{\sstar}) \geq \Volu(K)\cdot \Volu(K^{\sstar}) \geq
\Volu(K^{\delta})\cdot \Volu((K^{\delta})^{\sstar})$, where $K_{\delta}$,
$K^{\delta}$ and $K^{\sstar}$ stand for the convex floating body, the
illumination body, and the polar of $K$, respectively. We derive a
few consequences of these inequalities.

Covering Discs in Minkowski Planes
We investigate the following version of the circle covering
problem in strictly convex (normed or) Minkowski planes: to cover
a circle of largest possible diameter by $k$ unit circles. In
particular, we study the cases $k=3$, $k=4$, and $k=7$. For $k=3$
and $k=4$, the diameters under consideration are described in
terms of sidelengths and circumradii of certain inscribed regular
triangles or quadrangles. This yields also simple explanations of
geometric meanings that the corresponding homothety ratios have.
It turns out that basic notions from Minkowski geometry play an
essential role in our proofs, namely Minkowskian bisectors,
$d$segments, and the monotonicity lemma.

The Kostrikin Radical and the Invariance of the Core of Reduced Extended Affine Lie Algebras
In this paper we prove that the Kostrikin radical of an extended affine Lie algebra of
reduced type coincides with the center of its core, and use this characterization to get a typefree
description of the core of such algebras. As a consequence we get that the core of an extended affine
Lie algebra of reduced type is invariant under the automorphisms of the algebra.

Continuous Adjacency Preserving Maps on Real Matrices
It is proved that every adjacency preserving continuous map
on the vector space of real matrices of fixed size, is either a
bijective affine tranformation
of the form $ A \mapsto PAQ+R$, possibly followed by the transposition if
the matrices are of square size, or its range is contained
in a linear subspace consisting of matrices of rank at most one
translated by some matrix $R$. The result
extends previously known
theorems where the map was assumed to be also injective.

LinÃ©arisation symplectique en dimension 2
In this paper the germ of neighborhood of a compact leaf in a
Lagrangian foliation is symplectically classified when the compact
leaf is $\bT^2$, the affine structure induced by the Lagrangian
foliation on the leaf is complete, and the holonomy of $\bT^2$ in
the foliation linearizes. The germ of neighborhood is classified by a
function, depending on one transverse coordinate, this function is
related to the affine structure of the nearly compact leaves.
