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.

Convex Functions on Discrete Time Domains
In this paper, we introduce the definition of a convex real
valued function $f$ defined on the set of integers, ${\mathbb{Z}}$. We
prove that $f$ is convex on ${\mathbb{Z}}$ if and only if $\Delta^{2}f
\geq 0$ on ${\mathbb{Z}}$. As a first application of this new concept,
we state and prove discrete HermiteHadamard inequality using
the basics of discrete calculus (i.e. the calculus on ${\mathbb{Z}}$).
Second, we state and prove the discrete fractional HermiteHadamard
inequality using the basics of discrete fractional calculus.
We close the paper by defining the convexity of a real valued
function on any time scale.

On a theorem of Bers, with applications to the study of automorphism groups of domains
We study and generalize a classical theorem of L. Bers that classifies

of
holomorphic functions on those domains. Then we develop applications
of these results to the study of domains with noncompact automorphism
group.

Product Ranks of the $3\times 3$ Determinant and Permanent
We show that the product rank of the $3 \times 3$ determinant
$\det_3$ is $5$,
and the product rank of the $3 \times 3$ permanent
$\operatorname{perm}_3$
is $4$.
As a corollary, we obtain that the tensor rank of $\det_3$ is
$5$ and the tensor rank of $\operatorname{perm}_3$ is $4$.
We show moreover that the border product rank of $\operatorname{perm}_n$ is
larger than $n$ for any $n\geq 3$.

Generalized Goldberg Formula
In this paper we prove a useful formula for the graded commutator
of the Hodge
codifferential with the left wedge multiplication by a fixed
$p$form acting on
the de Rham algebra of a Riemannian manifold. Our formula generalizes
a formula
stated by Samuel I. Goldberg for the case of 1forms. As first
examples of
application we obtain new identities on locally conformally KÃ¤hler
manifolds
and quasiSasakian manifolds. Moreover, we prove that under suitable
conditions
a certain subalgebra of differential forms in a compact manifold
is quasiisomorphic as a CDGA to the full de Rham algebra.

Dynamical Analysis of a StageStructured Model for Lyme Disease with two delays
In this paper, a
nonlinear stagestructured model for Lyme disease is considered.
The model is a system of differential equations with two time
delays. The basic reproductive rate, $R_0(\tau_1,\tau_2)$, is
derived. If $R_0(\tau_1,\tau_2)\lt 1$, then the boundary equilibrium
is globally asymptotically stable. If $R_0(\tau_1,\tau_2)\gt 1$,
then there exists
a unique positive equilibrium whose local asymptotical stability
and the existence of
Hopf bifurcations are established by analyzing the distribution
of the characteristic values.
An explicit algorithm for determining the direction of Hopf bifurcations
and the
stability of the bifurcating periodic solutions is derived by
using the normal form and
the center manifold theory. Some numerical simulations are performed
to confirm the correctness
of theoretical analysis. At last, some conclusions are given.

The Nilpotent Regular Element Problem
We use George Bergman's recent normal form for universally adjoining
an inner inverse to show that, for general rings, a nilpotent
regular element $x$ need not be unitregular.
This contrasts sharply with the situation for nilpotent regular
elements in exchange rings (a large class of rings), and for
general rings when all powers of the nilpotent element $x$ are
regular.

A new formula for the energy of bulk superconductivity
The energy of a type II superconductor submitted to an external
magnetic field of intensity close to the second critical field
is given by the celebrated Abrikosov energy. If the external
magnetic field is comparable to and below the second critical
field, the energy is given by a reference function obtained as
a special (thermodynamic) limit of a nonlinear energy. In this
note, we give a new formula for this reference energy. In particular,
we obtain it as a special limit of a linear energy defined
over configurations normalized in the $L^4$norm.

A Note on Fine Graphs and Homological Isoperimetric Inequalities
In the framework of homological characterizations of relative
hyperbolicity, Groves and Manning posed the question of whether
a simply connected $2$complex $X$ with a linear homological
isoperimetric inequality, a bound on the length of attaching
maps of $2$cells and finitely many $2$cells adjacent to any
edge must have a fine $1$skeleton. We provide a positive answer
to this question. We revisit a homological characterization
of relative hyperbolicity, and show that a group $G$ is hyperbolic
relative to a collection of subgroups $\mathcal P$ if and only if
$G$ acts cocompactly with finite edge stabilizers on an connected
$2$dimensional cell complex with a linear homological isoperimetric
inequality and $\mathcal P$ is a collection of representatives of
conjugacy classes of vertex stabilizers.

Discrete Spacetime and Lorentz Transformations
Alfred Schild has established conditions
that Lorentz transformations map worldvectors $(ct,x,y,z)$ with
integer coordinates onto vectors of the same kind. The problem
was dealt with in the context of tensor and spinor calculus.
Due to Schild's numbertheoretic arguments, the subject is also
interesting when isolated from its physical background.
The paper of Schild is not easy to understand. Therefore we first
present a streamlined version of his proof which is based on
the use of null vectors. Then we present a purely algebraic proof
that is somewhat shorter. Both proofs rely on the properties
of Gaussian integers.

Nondiscrete frieze groups
The classification of Euclidean frieze groups into seven conjugacy
classes is well known, and many articles on recreational mathematics
contain frieze patterns that illustrate these classes. However,
it is
only possible to draw these patterns because the subgroup of
translations that leave the pattern invariant is (by definition)
cyclic, and hence discrete. In this paper we classify the conjugacy
classes of frieze groups that contain a nondiscrete subgroup of
translations, and clearly these groups cannot be represented
pictorially in any practical way. In addition, this discussion
sheds
light on why there are only seven conjugacy classes in the classical
case.

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$.

On $s$semipermutable or $s$quasinormally Embedded Subgroups of Finite Groups
Suppose that $G$ is a
finite group and $H$ is a subgroup of $G$. $H$ is said to be
$s$semipermutable in $G$ if $HG_{p}=G_{p}H$ for any Sylow
$p$subgroup $G_{p}$ of $G$ with $(p,H)=1$; $H$ is said to be
$s$quasinormally embedded in $G$ if for each prime $p$ dividing the
order of $H$, a Sylow $p$subgroup of $H$ is also a Sylow
$p$subgroup of some $s$quasinormal subgroup of $G$. We fix in
every noncyclic Sylow subgroup $P$ of $G$ some subgroup $D$
satisfying $1\lt D\lt P$ and study the structure of $G$ under the
assumption that every subgroup $H$ of $P$ with $H=D$ is either
$s$semipermutable or $s$quasinormally embedded in $G$.
Some recent results are generalized and unified.

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.

Exact Morphism Category and Gorensteinprojective Representations
Let $Q$ be a finite acyclic quiver, $J$ be an ideal of $kQ$ generated
by all arrows in $Q$, $A$ be a finitedimensional $k$algebra. The
category of all finitedimensional representations of $(Q, J^2)$ over

The main result of this paper explicitly describes the Gorensteinprojective representations in $\operatorname{rep}{}(Q,J^2,A)$,
via the exact representations plus an extra condition.
As a corollary, $A$ is a selfinjective algebra, if
and only if the Gorensteinprojective representations are exactly the
exact representations of $(Q, J^2)$ over $A$.

Local Heuristics and an Exact Formula for Abelian Surfaces Over Finite Fields
Consider a quartic $q$Weil polynomial $f$. Motivated by equidistribution
considerations, we define, for each prime $\ell$, a local factor
that
measures the relative frequency with which $f\bmod \ell$ occurs
as the

For a certain

with Weil polynomial $f$.
