Non Abelian Twisted Reidemeister Torsion for Fibered Knots
In this article, we give an explicit formula to compute the

application, we give explicit formulae for the non abelian
Reidemeister torsion of torus knots and of the figure eight knot.

On a Class of Singular Integral Operators With Rough Kernels
In this paper, we study the $L^p$ mapping properties of a class of singular
integral operators with rough kernels belonging to certain block spaces. We
prove that our operators are bounded on $L^p$ provided that their kernels
satisfy a size condition much weaker than that for the classical
Calder\'{o}nZygmund singular integral operators. Moreover, we present an
example showing that our size condition is optimal. As a consequence of our
results, we substantially improve a previously known result on certain maximal
functions.

Angle Measures and Bisectors in Minkowski Planes
\begin{abstract}
We prove that a Minkowski plane is Euclidean if and only if Busemann's or
Glogovskij's definitions
of angular bisectors coincide
with a bisector defined by an angular measure in the sense of Brass.
In addition, bisectors defined by the area measure coincide with bisectors
defined by the circumference (arc length) measure
if and only if the unit circle is an
equiframed curve.

On FinitetoOne 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
$\max\{k+mp+2,1\}$ 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 2toone 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 $(k+1)$toone.

Exceptional Sets in Hartogs Domains
Assume that $\Omega$ is a Hartogs domain in $\mathbb{C}^{1+n}$,
defined as $\Omega=\{(z,w)\in\mathbb{C}^{1+n}:z<\mu(w),w\in H\}$, where $H$ is an open set in
$\mathbb{C}^{n}$ and $\mu$ is a continuous function with positive values in $H$ such that $\ln\mu$
is a strongly plurisubharmonic function in $H$. Let $\Omega_{w}=\Omega\cap(\mathbb{C}\times\{w\})$.
For a given set $E$ contained in $H$ of the type $G_{\delta}$ we construct a holomorphic function
$f\in\mathbb{O}(\Omega)$ such that
\[
E=\Bigl\{ w\in\mathbb{C}^{n}:\int_{\Omega_{w}}f(\cdot\,,w)^{2}\,d\mathfrak{L}^{2}=\infty\Bigr\}.

A Note on Lagrangian Loci of Quotients
We study Hamiltonian actions of compact groups in the presence of
compatible involutions. We show that the Lagrangian fixed point set
on the symplectically reduced space is isomorphic to the disjoint
union of the involutively reduced spaces corresponding to
involutions on the group strongly inner to the given one.
Our techniques imply that the solution to the eigenvalues of a sum problem
for a given real form can be reduced to the quasisplit real form in the
same inner class. We also consider invariant quotients with respect to
the corresponding real form of the complexified group.

Degeneracy of 2Forms and 3Forms
We study some global aspects of differential complex 2forms and 3forms
on complex manifolds.
We compute the cohomology classes represented by the sets of points
on a manifold where such a form degenerates in various senses,
together with other similar cohomological obstructions.
Based on these results and a formula for projective
representations, we calculate the degree of the projectivization
of certain orbits of the representation $\Lambda^k\C^n$.

On the Generalized d'Alembert's and Wilson's Functional Equations on a Compact group
Let $G$ be a compact group. Let $\sigma$ be a continuous involution
of $G$. In this paper, we are
concerned by the following functional equation
$$\int_{G}f(xtyt^{1})\,dt+\int_{G}f(xt\sigma(y)t^{1})\,dt=2g(x)h(y), \quad
x, y \in G,$$ where $f, g, h \colonG \mapsto \mathbb{C}$, to be
determined, are complex continuous functions on $G$ such that $f$ is
central. This equation generalizes d'Alembert's and Wilson's
functional equations. We show that the solutions are expressed by
means of characters of irreducible, continuous and unitary
representations of the group $G$.

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 $\l2$

Enlarged Inclusion of Subdifferentials
This paper studies the integration of inclusion of subdifferentials. Under
various verifiable conditions, we obtain that if two proper lower
semicontinuous functions $f$ and $g$ have the subdifferential of $f$
included in the $\gamma$enlargement of the subdifferential of $g$, then
the difference of those functions is $ \gamma$Lipschitz over their
effective domain.

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.

On Suslinian Continua
A continuum is said to be Suslinian if it does not contain uncountably
many mutually exclusive nondegenerate subcontinua. We prove that
Suslinian continua are perfectly normal and rimmetrizable. Locally
connected Suslinian continua have weight at most $\omega_1$ and under
appropriate settheoretic conditions are metrizable. Nonseparable
locally connected Suslinian continua are rimfinite on some open set.

Geometry and Arithmetic of Certain Double Octic CalabiYau Manifolds
We study CalabiYau manifolds constructed as double coverings of
$\mathbb{P}^3$ branched along an octic surface. We give a list of 87
examples corresponding to arrangements of eight planes defined over
$\mathbb{Q}$. The Hodge numbers are computed for all examples. There are
10 rigid CalabiYau manifolds and 14 families with $h^{1,2}=1$. The
modularity conjecture is verified for all the rigid examples.

BakerType Estimates for Linear Forms in the Values of $q$Series
We obtain lower estimates for the absolute values
of linear forms of the values of generalized Heine
series at nonzero points of an imaginary quadratic field~$\II$,
in particular of the values of $q$exponential function.
These estimates depend on the individual coefficients,
not only on the maximum of their absolute values.
The proof uses a variant of classical Siegel's method
applied to a system of functional Poincar\'etype equations
and the connection between the solutions of these functional
equations and the generalized Heine series.

A Characterization of $ PSU_{11}(q)$
Order components of a finite simple group were introduced in [4].
It was proved that some nonabelian simple groups are uniquely determined
by their order components. As the main result of this paper, we
show that groups $PSU_{11}(q)$ are also uniquely determined by
their order components. As corollaries of this result, the
validity of a conjecture of J. G. Thompson and a conjecture of W.
Shi and J. Bi both on $PSU_{11}(q)$ are obtained.

Classifying Spaces for Monoidal Categories Through Geometric Nerves
The usual constructions of classifying spaces for monoidal categories
produce CWcomplexes with
many cells that, moreover, do not have any proper geometric meaning.
However, geometric nerves of
monoidal categories are very handy simplicial sets whose simplices
have
a pleasing geometric
description: they are diagrams with the shape of the 2skeleton of
oriented standard simplices. The
purpose of this paper is to prove that geometric realizations of
geometric nerves are classifying
spaces for monoidal categories.

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 $\gamma_2$.

A Reduction of the BatyrevManin Conjecture for Kummer Surfaces
Let $V$ be a $K3$ surface defined over a number field $k$. The
BatyrevManin conjecture for $V$ states that for every nonempty open
subset $U$ of $V$, there exists a finite set $Z_U$ of accumulating
rational curves such that the density of rational points on $UZ_U$ is
strictly less than the density of rational points on $Z_U$. Thus,
the set of rational points of $V$ conjecturally admits a stratification
corresponding to the sets $Z_U$ for successively smaller sets $U$.
In this paper, in the case that $V$ is a Kummer surface, we prove that
the BatyrevManin conjecture for $V$ can be reduced to the
BatyrevManin conjecture for $V$ modulo the endomorphisms of $V$
induced by multiplication by $m$ on the associated abelian surface
$A$. As an application, we use this to show that given some restrictions
on $A$, the set of rational points of $V$ which lie on rational curves
whose preimages have geometric genus 2 admits a stratification of
