On the continued fraction expansion of fixed period in finite fields
The Chowla conjecture
states that,
if $t$ is any given
positive integer, there are infinitely many prime positive
integers $N$ such that $\operatorname{Per} (\sqrt{N})=t$, where
$\operatorname{Per} (\sqrt{N})$
is the period length of the continued fraction expansion for
$\sqrt{N}$.
C. Friesen proved
that, for any $k\in \mathbb{N}$, there are infinitely many
squarefree integers $N$, where the continued fraction expansion
of $\sqrt{N}$ has a fixed period. In this paper, we describe all
polynomials $Q\in \mathbb{F}_q[X] $ for which the continued fraction
expansion of $\sqrt {Q}$ has a fixed period, also we give a
lower
bound of the number of monic, nonsquares polynomials $Q$ such
that $\deg Q= 2d$ and $ Per \sqrt {Q}=t$.

Pell Equations: NonPrincipal Lagrange Criteria and Central Norms
We provide a criterion for the central norm to be
any value in the simple continued fraction expansion of $\sqrt{D}$
for any nonsquare integer $D>1$. We also provide a simple criterion
for the solvability of the Pell equation $x^2Dy^2=1$ in terms of
congruence conditions modulo $D$.

Criteria for Simultaneous Solutions of $X^2  DY^2 = c$ and $x^2  Dy^2 = c$
The purpose of this article is to provide criteria for the
simultaneous solvability of the Diophantine equations $X^2  DY^2 =
c$ and $x^2  Dy^2 = c$ when $c \in \mathbb{Z}$, and $D \in
\mathbb{N}$ is not a perfect square. This continues work in
\cite{me}\cite{alfnme}.

Invariant Measures and Natural Extensions
We study ergodic properties of a family of interval maps that are
given as the fractional parts of certain real M\"obius
transformations. Included are the maps that are exactly
$n$to$1$, the classical Gauss map and the Renyi or backward
continued fraction map. A new approach is presented for deriving
explicit realizations of natural automorphic extensions and their
invariant measures.
