The Transfer in the Invariant Theory of Modular Permutation Representations II In this note we show that the image of the transfer for permutation
representations of finite groups is generated by the transfers of
special monomials. This leads to a description of the image of the
transfer of the alternating groups. We also determine the height of
these ideals.

On the Smirnov Class Defined by the Maximal Function H.~O.~Kim has shown that contrary to the case of
$H^p$space, the Smirnov class $M$ defined by the radial maximal
function is essentially smaller than the classical Smirnov class
of the disk. In the paper we show that these two classes have the
same corresponding locally convex structure, {\it i.e.} they have the
same dual spaces and the same Fr\'echet envelopes. We describe a
general form of a continuous linear functional on $M$ and
multiplier from $M$ into $H^p$, $0 < p \leq \infty$.

Griffiths Groups of Supersingular Abelian Varieties The Griffiths group $\Gr^r(X)$ of a smooth projective variety $X$ over
an algebraically closed field is defined to be the group of homologically
trivial algebraic cycles of codimension $r$ on $X$ modulo the subgroup of
algebraically trivial algebraic cycles. The main result of this paper is
that the Griffiths group $\Gr^2 (A_{\bar{k}})$ of a supersingular
abelian variety $A_{\bar{k}}$ over the algebraic closure of a finite
field of characteristic $p$ is at most a $p$primary torsion group.
As a corollary the same conclusion holds for supersingular Fermat
threefolds. In contrast, using methods of C.~Schoen it is also
shown that if the Tate conjecture is valid for all smooth
projective surfaces and all finite extensions of the finite ground
field $k$ of characteristic $p>2$, then the Griffiths group of any ordinary
abelian threefold $A_{\bar{k}}$ over the algebraic closure of $k$ is
nontrivial; in fact, for all but a finite number of primes $\ell\ne p$ it
is the case that $\Gr^2 (A_{\bar{k}}) \otimes \Z_\ell \neq 0$.

On the Poisson Integral of Step Functions and Minimal Surfaces Applications of minimal surface methods are made to obtain information
about univalent harmonic mappings. In the case where the mapping arises
as the Poisson integral of a step function, lower bounds for the number
of zeros of the dilatation are obtained in terms of the geometry of the
image.

The Distribution of Totatives D.~H.~Lehmer initiated the study of the distribution of totatives, which
are numbers coprime with a given integer. This led to various problems
considered by P.~Erd\H os, who made a conjecture on such distributions.
We prove his conjecture by establishing a theorem on the ordering of
residues.

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.

Exponents of Class Groups of Quadratic Function Fields over Finite Fields We find a lower bound on the number of imaginary quadratic extensions
of the function field $\F_q(T)$ whose class groups have an element of
a fixed order.
More precisely, let $q \geq 5$ be a power of an odd prime and let $g$
be a fixed positive integer $\geq 3$. There are $\gg q^{\ell
(\frac{1}{2}+\frac{1}{g})}$ polynomials $D \in \F_q[T]$ with $\deg(D)
\leq \ell$ such that the class groups of the quadratic extensions
$\F_q(T,\sqrt{D})$ have an element of order~$g$.

Weak Amenability of a Class of Banach Algebras We show that, if a Banach algebra $\A$ is a left ideal in its second

weak amenability of $\A$ implies the ($2m+1$)weak amenability of $\A$
for all $m\geq 1$.

isochronous behaviour of the homogeneous polynomial perturbation of
the Hamiltonian $H_0$ considered in [L], [P], [S].

Spectral Transformations of the Laurent Biorthogonal Polynomials, II. Pastro Polynomials We continue to study the simplest closure conditions for chains of
spectral transformations of the Laurent biorthogonal polynomials
($\LBP$). It is shown that the 11periodic $q$closure condition
leads to the $\LBP$ introduced by Pastro. We introduce classes of
semiclassical and LaguerreHahn $\LBP$ associated to generic closure
conditions of the chain of spectral transformations.

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 finitedimensional 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 $X$.

Growth Estimates on Positive Solutions of the Equation $\Delta u+K u^{\frac{n+2}{n2}}=0$ in $\R^n$ We construct unbounded positive $C^2$solutions of the equation
$\Delta u + K u^{(n + 2)/(n  2)} = 0$ in $\R^n$ (equipped
with Euclidean metric $g_o$) such that $K$ is bounded between two
positive numbers in $\R^n$, the conformal metric $g=u^{4/(n2)}g_o$
is complete, and the volume growth of $g$ can be arbitrarily fast
or reasonably slow according to the constructions. By imposing natural
conditions on $u$, we obtain growth estimate on the $L^{2n/(n2)}$norm
of the solution and show that it has slow decay.

LinÃ©arisation symplectique en dimension 2 In this paper the germ of neighborhood of a compact leaf in a
Lagrangian foliation is symplectically classified when the compact
leaf is $\bT^2$, the affine structure induced by the Lagrangian
foliation on the leaf is complete, and the holonomy of $\bT^2$ in
the foliation linearizes. The germ of neighborhood is classified by a
function, depending on one transverse coordinate, this function is
related to the affine structure of the nearly compact leaves.

Each Copy of the Real Line in $\C^2$ is Removable Around 1995, Professors Lupacciolu, Chirka and Stout showed that a
closed subset of $\C^N$ ($N\geq 2$) is removable for holomorphic
functions, if its topological dimension is less than or equal to
$N2$. Besides, they asked whether closed subsets of $\C^2$
homeomorphic to the real line (the simplest 1dimensional sets) are
removable for holomorphic functions. In this paper we propose a
positive answer to that question.

Helices, Hasimoto Surfaces and BÃ¤cklund Transformations Travelling wave solutions to the vortex filament flow generated by
elastica produce surfaces in $\R^3$ that carry mutually orthogonal
foliations by geodesics and by helices. These surfaces are classified
in the special cases where the helices are all congruent or are all
generated by a single screw motion. The first case yields a new
characterization for the B\"acklund transformation for constant
torsion curves in $\R^3$, previously derived from the wellknown
transformation for pseudospherical surfaces. A similar investigation
for surfaces in $H^3$ or $S^3$ leads to a new transformation for
constant torsion curves in those spaces that is also derived from
pseudospherical surfaces.

Harmonic Polynomials Associated With Reflection Groups We extend Maxwell's representation of harmonic polynomials to $h$harmonics
associated to a reflection invariant weight function $h_k$. Let $\CD_i$,
$1\le i \le d$, be Dunkl's operators associated with a reflection group.
For any homogeneous polynomial $P$ of degree $n$, we prove the
polynomial $\xb^{2 \gamma +d2+2n}P(\CD)\{1/\xb^{2 \gamma +d2}\}$ is
a $h$harmonic polynomial of degree $n$, where $\gamma = \sum k_i$ and
$\CD=(\CD_1,\ldots,\CD_d)$. The construction yields a basis for
$h$harmonics. We also discuss selfadjoint operators acting on the
space of $h$harmonics.
