A Szpilrajn--Marczewski Type Theorem for Concentration Dimension on Polish Spaces
Let $X$ be a Polish space. We will prove that $$ \dim_T X=\inf \{\dim_L X': X'\text{ is homeomorphic to } X\}, $$ where $\dim_L X$ and $\dim_T X$ stand for the concentration dimension and the topological dimension of $X$, respectively.

Keywords:Hausdorff dimension, topological dimension, Lévy concentration function, concentration dimension

On Finite-to-One Maps
Let $f\colon X\to Y$ be a $\sigma$-perfect $k$-dimensional surjective map of metrizable spaces such that $\dim Y\leq m$. It is shown that for every positive integer $p$ with $ p\leq m+k+1$ there exists a dense $G_{\delta}$-subset ${\mathcal H}(k,m,p)$ of $C(X,\uin^{k+p})$ with the source limitation topology such that each fiber of $f\triangle g$, $g\in{\mathcal H}(k,m,p)$, contains at most $\max\{k+m-p+2,1\}$ points. This result provides a proof the following conjectures of S. Bogatyi, V. Fedorchuk and J. van Mill. Let $f\colon X\to Y$ be a $k$-dimensional map between compact metric spaces with $\dim Y\leq m$. Then: \begin{inparaenum}[\rm(1)] \item there exists a map $h\colon X\to\uin^{m+2k}$ such that $f\triangle h\colon X\to Y\times\uin^{m+2k}$ is 2-to-one provided $k\geq 1$; \item there exists a map $h\colon X\to\uin^{m+k+1}$ such that $f\triangle h\colon X\to Y\times\uin^{m+k+1}$ is $(k+1)$-to-one. \end{inparaenum}

Short Geodesics of Unitaries in the $L^2$ Metric
Let $\M$ be a type II$_1$ von Neumann algebra, $\tau$ a trace in $\M$, and $\l2$ the GNS Hilbert space of $\tau$. We regard the unitary group $U_\M$ as a subset of $\l2$ and characterize the shortest smooth curves joining two fixed unitaries in the $L^2$ metric. As a consequence of this we obtain that $U_\M$, though a complete (metric) topological group, is not an embedded riemannian submanifold of $\l2$

Keywords:unitary group, short geodesics, infinite dimensional riemannian manifolds.

Recurrent Geodesics in Flat Lorentz $3$-Manifolds
Let $M$ be a complete flat Lorentz $3$-manifold $M$ with purely hyperbolic holonomy $\Gamma$. Recurrent geodesic rays are completely classified when $\Gamma$ is cyclic. This implies that for any pair of periodic geodesics $\gamma_1$, $\gamma_2$, a unique geodesic forward spirals towards $\gamma_1$ and backward spirals towards $\gamma_2$.

Keywords:geometric structures on low-dimensional manifolds, notions of recurrence

Extension of Maps to Nilpotent Spaces
We show that every compactum has cohomological dimension $1$ with respect to a finitely generated nilpotent group $G$ whenever it has cohomological dimension $1$ with respect to the abelianization of $G$. This is applied to the extension theory to obtain a cohomological dimension theory condition for a finite-dimensional compactum $X$ for extendability of every map from a closed subset of $X$ into a nilpotent $\CW$-complex $M$ with finitely generated homotopy groups over all of $X$.

A universal coefficient decomposition for subgroups induced by submodules of group algebras
Dimension subgroups and Lie dimension subgroups are known to satisfy a `universal coefficient decomposition', {\it i.e.} their value with respect to an arbitrary coefficient ring can be described in terms of their values with respect to the `universal' coefficient rings given by the cyclic groups of infinite and prime power order. Here this fact is generalized to much more general types of induced subgroups, notably covering Fox subgroups and relative dimension subgroups with respect to group algebra filtrations induced by arbitrary $N$-series, as well as certain common generalisations of these which occur in the study of the former. This result relies on an extension of the principal universal coefficient decomposition theorem on polynomial ideals (due to Passi, Parmenter and Seghal), to all additive subgroups of group rings. This is possible by using homological instead of ring theoretical methods.

Keywords:induced subgroups, group algebras, Fox subgroups, relative dimension, subgroups, polynomial ideals
