The metric dimension of circulant graphs
A subset $W$ of the vertex set of a graph $G$ is called a resolving
set of $G$ if for every pair of distinct vertices $u, v$ of $G$,
there is $w \in W$ such that the~distance of $w$ and $u$ is different
from the distance of $w$ and $v$. The~cardinality of a~smallest
resolving set is called the metric dimension of $G$, denoted
by $dim(G)$. The circulant graph $C_n (1, 2, \dots , t)$ consists
of the vertices $v_0, v_1, \dots , v_{n1}$ and the~edges $v_i
v_{i+j}$, where $0 \le i \le n1$, $1 \le j \le t$ $(2 \le t
\le \lfloor \frac{n}{2} \rfloor)$, the indices are taken modulo
$n$. Grigorious et al. [On the metric dimension of circulant
and Harary graphs, Applied Mathematics and Computation 248 (2014),
4754] proved that $dim(C_n (1,2, \dots , t))
\ge t+1$ for $t \lt \lfloor \frac{n}{2} \rfloor$, $n \ge 3$, and they
presented a~conjecture saying that $dim(C_n (1,2, \dots , t))
= t+p1$ for $n=2tk+t+p$, where $3 \le p \le t+1$. We disprove
both statements. We show that if $t \ge 4$ is even, there exists
an infinite set of values of $n$ such that $dim(C_n (1,2, \dots
, t)) = t$. We also prove that $dim(C_n (1,2, \dots , t)) \le
t + \frac{p}{2}$ for $n=2tk+t+p$, where $t$ and $p$ are even,
$t \ge 4$, $2 \le p \le t$ and $k \ge 1$.

Incompressibility of products of pseudohomogeneous varieties
We show that the conjectural criterion of $p$incompressibility
for products of projective homogeneous varieties in terms of
the factors, previously known in a few special cases only, holds
in general.
Actually, the proof goes through for a wider class of varieties
which includes the norm varieties associated to symbols in Galois
cohomology of arbitrary degree.

The metric dimension of the total graph of a finite commutative ring
We study the total graph of a finite commutative ring. We calculate
its metric dimension in the case when the Jacobson radical of
the ring is nontrivial and we examine the metric dimension of
the total graph of a product of at most two fields, obtaining
either exact values in some cases or bounds in other, depending
on the number of elements in the respective fields.

On Flat and Gorenstein Flat Dimensions of Local Cohomology Modules
Let $\mathfrak{a}$ be an ideal of a Noetherian local
ring $R$ and let $C$ be a semidualizing $R$module. For an $R$module
$X$, we denote any of the quantities $\mathfrak{d}_R X$,
$\operatorname{\mathsf{Gfd}}_R X$ and
$\operatorname{\mathsf{G_Cfd}}_RX$ by $\operatorname{\mathsf{T}}(X)$. Let $M$ be an $R$module such that
$\operatorname{H}_{\mathfrak{a}}^i(M)=0$
for all $i\neq n$. It is proved that if $\operatorname{\mathsf{T}}(X)\lt \infty$, then
$\operatorname{\mathsf{T}}(\operatorname{H}_{\mathfrak{a}}^n(M))\leq\operatorname{\mathsf{T}}(M)+n$ and the equality holds whenever
$M$ is finitely generated. With the aid of these results, among
other things, we characterize CohenMacaulay modules, dualizing
modules and Gorenstein rings.

Homological Properties Relative to Injectively Resolving Subcategories
Let $\mathcal{E}$ be an injectively resolving subcategory of
left $R$modules. A left $R$module $M$
(resp. right $R$module $N$) is called $\mathcal{E}$injective
(resp. $\mathcal{E}$flat)
if $\operatorname{Ext}_R^1(G,M)=0$ (resp. $\operatorname{Tor}_1^R(N,G)=0$)
for any $G\in\mathcal{E}$.
Let $\mathcal{E}$ be a covering subcategory.
We prove that a left $R$module $M$ is $\mathcal{E}$injective
if and only if $M$ is a direct sum
of an injective left $R$module and a reduced $\mathcal{E}$injective
left $R$module.
Suppose $\mathcal{F}$ is a preenveloping subcategory of right
$R$modules such that
$\mathcal{E}^+\subseteq\mathcal{F}$ and $\mathcal{F}^+\subseteq\mathcal{E}$.
It is shown that a finitely presented right $R$module $M$ is
$\mathcal{E}$flat if and only if
$M$ is a cokernel of an $\mathcal{F}$preenvelope of a right
$R$module.
In addition, we introduce and investigate the
$\mathcal{E}$injective and $\mathcal{E}$flat dimensions of
modules and rings. We also introduce $\mathcal{E}$(semi)hereditary
rings and $\mathcal{E}$von Neumann regular rings and characterize
them in terms of $\mathcal{E}$injective and $\mathcal{E}$flat
modules.

follow from results of Vial.

Nonbranching RCD$(0,N)$ Geodesic Spaces with Small Linear Diameter Growth have Finitely Generated Fundamental Groups
In this paper, we generalize the finite generation result of
Sormani
to nonbranching $RCD(0,N)$
geodesic spaces (and in particular, Alexandrov spaces) with full
support measures. This is a special case of the Milnor's Conjecture
for complete noncompact $RCD(0,N)$ spaces. One of the key tools
we use is the AbreschGromoll type excess estimates for nonsmooth
spaces obtained by GigliMosconi.

Betti Numbers and Flat Dimensions of Local Cohomology Modules
Assume that $R$ is a commutative Noetherian ring with nonzero
identity, $\mathfrak{a}$ is an ideal of $R$ and $X$ is an $R$module.
In this paper, we first study the finiteness of Betti numbers
of local cohomology modules $\operatorname{H}_\mathfrak{a}^i(X)$. Then we give some
inequalities between the Betti numbers of $X$ and those of its
local cohomology modules. Finally, we present many upper bounds
for the flat dimension of $X$ in terms of the flat dimensions
of its local cohomology modules and an upper bound for the flat
dimension of $\operatorname{H}_\mathfrak{a}^i(X)$ in terms of the flat dimensions of
the modules $\operatorname{H}_\mathfrak{a}^j(X)$, $j\not= i$, and that of $X$.

We define a refined motivic dimension for an algebraic variety

for certain varieties, such as uniruled, rationally connected
varieties and a rational surface fibration.

On the Structure of Cuntz Semigroups in (Possibly) Nonunital C*algebras
We examine the ranks of operators in semifinite $\mathrm{C}^*$algebras
as measured by their densely defined lower semicontinuous traces.
We first prove that a unital simple $\mathrm{C}^*$algebra whose
extreme tracial boundary is nonempty and finite contains positive
operators of every possible rank, independent of the property
of strict comparison. We then turn to nonunital simple algebras
and establish criteria that imply that the Cuntz semigroup is
recovered functorially from the Murrayvon Neumann semigroup
and the space of densely defined lower semicontinuous traces.
Finally, we prove that these criteria are satisfied by notnecessarilyunital
approximately subhomogeneous algebras of slow dimension growth.
Combined with results of the firstnamed author, this shows that
slow dimension growth coincides with $\mathcal Z$stability,
for approximately subhomogeneous algebras.

Complexifying Lie Group Actions on Homogeneous Manifolds of Noncompact Dimension Two
If $X$ is a connected complex manifold with $d_X = 2$ that admits a (connected) Lie group $G$
acting transitively as a group of holomorphic transformations, then the action extends to an action of the
complexification $\widehat{G}$ of $G$ on $X$ except when
either the unit disk in the complex plane
or a strictly pseudoconcave homogeneous complex manifold is
the base or fiber of some homogeneous fibration of $X$.

AssouadNagata Dimension of Wreath Products of Groups
Consider the wreath product $H\wr G$, where $H\ne 1$ is finite and $G$ is finitely generated.
We show that the AssouadNagata dimension $\dim_{AN}(H\wr G)$ of $H\wr G$
depends on the growth of $G$ as follows:
\par If the growth of $G$ is not bounded by a linear function, then $\dim_{AN}(H\wr G)=\infty$,
otherwise $\dim_{AN}(H\wr G)=\dim_{AN}(G)\leq 1$.

Alexandroff Manifolds and Homogeneous Continua
ny homogeneous,
metric $ANR$continuum is a $V^n_G$continuum provided $\dim_GX=n\geq
1$ and $\check{H}^n(X;G)\neq 0$, where $G$ is a principal ideal
domain.
This implies that any homogeneous $n$dimensional metric $ANR$continuum is a $V^n$continuum in the sense of Alexandroff.
We also prove that any finitedimensional homogeneous metric continuum
$X$, satisfying $\check{H}^n(X;G)\neq 0$ for some group $G$ and $n\geq
1$, cannot be separated by
a compactum $K$ with $\check{H}^{n1}(K;G)=0$ and $\dim_G K\leq
n1$. This provides a partial answer to a question of
KallipolitiPapasoglu

Strongly $0$dimensional Modules
In a multiplication module, prime submodules have the property, if a prime
submodule contains a finite intersection of submodules then one of the
submodules is contained in the prime submodule. In this paper, we generalize
this property to infinite intersection of submodules and call such prime
submodules strongly prime submodule. A multiplication module in which every
prime submodule is strongly prime will be called strongly 0dimensional
module. It is also an extension of strongly 0dimensional rings. After
this we investigate properties of strongly 0dimensional modules and give
relations of von Neumann regular modules, Qmodules and strongly
0dimensional modules.

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 $n$.

On the Radius of Comparison of a Commutative C*algebra
Let $X$ be a compact metric space. A lower bound for the radius of
comparison of the C*algebra $\operatorname{C}(X)$ is given in terms of
$\operatorname{dim}_{\mathbb{Q}} X$, where $\operatorname{dim}_{\mathbb{Q}} X $ is
the cohomological dimension with rational coefficients. If
$\operatorname{dim}_{\mathbb{Q}} X =\operatorname{dim} X=d$, then the
radius of comparison of the C*algebra $\operatorname{C}(X)$ is $\max\{0, (d1)/21\}$ if $d$ is odd, and must be either $d/21$ or $d/22$ if $d$ is even (the possibility of $d/21$ does occur, but we do not know if the possibility of $d/22$ also can occur).

Envelope Dimension of Modules and the Simplified Radical Formula
We introduce and investigate the notion of envelope dimension of
commutative rings and modules over them. In particular, we show that
the envelope dimension of a ring, $R$, is equal to that of the
$R$module $R^{(\mathbb{N})}$. Also we prove that the Krull dimension of a
ring is no more than its envelope dimension and characterize
Noetherian rings for which these two dimensions are equal. Moreover we
generalize and study the concept of simplified radical formula for
modules, which
we defined in an earlier paper.

Real Dimension Groups
Dimension groups (not countable) that are also real ordered vector
spaces can be obtained as direct limits (over directed sets) of
simplicial real vector spaces (finite dimensional vector spaces with
the coordinatewise ordering), but the directed set is not as
interesting as one would like, i.e., it is not true that a
countabledimensional real vector space that has interpolation can be
represented as such a direct limit over the a countable directed
set. It turns out this is the case when the group is additionally
simple, and it is shown that the latter have an ordered tensor product
decomposition. In the Appendix, we provide a huge class of polynomial
rings that, with a pointwise ordering, are shown to satisfy
interpolation, extending a result outlined by Fuchs.

The Sizes of Rearrangements of Cantor Sets
A linear Cantor set $C$ with zero Lebesgue measure is associated with
the countable collection of the bounded complementary open intervals. A
rearrangment of $C$ has the same lengths of its complementary
intervals, but with different locations. We study the Hausdorff and packing
$h$measures and dimensional properties of the set of all rearrangments of
some given $C$ for general dimension functions $h$. For each set of
complementary lengths, we construct a Cantor set rearrangement which has the
maximal Hausdorff and the minimal packing $h$premeasure, up to a constant.
We also show that if the packing measure of this Cantor set is positive,
then there is a rearrangement which has infinite packing measure.

From Matrix to Operator Inequalities
We generalize LÃ¶wner's method for proving that matrix monotone
functions are operator monotone. The relation $x\leq y$ on bounded
operators is our model for a definition of $C^{*}$relations
being residually finite dimensional.
Our main result is a metatheorem about theorems involving relations
on bounded operators. If we can show there are residually finite dimensional
relations involved and verify a technical condition, then such a
theorem will follow from its restriction to matrices.
Applications are shown regarding norms of exponentials, the norms
of commutators, and "positive" noncommutative $*$polynomials.
