Universal Inner Functions on the Ball
It is shown that given any sequence of automorphisms $(\phi_k)_k$ of the
unit ball $\bn$ of $\cn$ such that $\\phi_k(0)\$ tends to $1$,
there exists an inner function
$I$ such that the family of ``nonEuclidean translates"
$(I\circ\phi_k)_k$ is locally uniformly dense in the unit ball of
$H^\infty(\bn)$.

Positive Solutions of the FalknerSkan Equation Arising in the Boundary Layer Theory
The wellknown FalknerSkan equation is one of the most important
equations in laminar boundary layer theory and is used to describe
the steady twodimensional flow of a slightly viscous
incompressible fluid past wedge shaped bodies of angles related to
$\lambda\pi/2$, where $\lambda\in \mathbb R$ is a parameter
involved in the equation. It is known that there exists
$\lambda^{*}<0$ such that the equation with suitable boundary
conditions has at least one positive solution for each $\lambda\ge
\lambda^{*}$ and has no positive solutions for
$\lambda<\lambda^{*}$. The known numerical result shows
$\lambda^{*}=0.1988$. In this paper, $\lambda^{*}\in
[0.4,0.12]$ is proved analytically by establishing a singular
integral equation which is equivalent to the FalknerSkan
equation. The equivalence result
provides new techniques to study properties and existence of solutions of
the FalknerSkan equation.

On the Maximal Spectrum of Semiprimitive Multiplication Modules
An $R$module $M$ is called a multiplication module if for each
submodule $N$ of $M$, $N=IM$ for some ideal $I$ of $R$. As
defined for a commutative ring $R$, an $R$module $M$ is said to be
semiprimitive if the intersection of maximal submodules of $M$ is
zero. The maximal spectra of a semiprimitive multiplication
module $M$ are studied. The isolated points of $\Max(M)$ are
characterized algebraically. The relationships among the maximal
spectra of $M$, $\Soc(M)$ and $\Ass(M)$ are studied. It is shown
that $\Soc(M)$ is exactly the set of all elements of $M$ which
belongs to every maximal submodule of $M$ except for a finite
number. If $\Max(M)$ is infinite, $\Max(M)$ is a onepoint
compactification of a discrete space if and only if $M$ is Gelfand and for
some maximal submodule $K$, $\Soc(M)$ is the intersection of all
prime submodules of $M$ contained in $K$. When $M$ is a
semiprimitive Gelfand module, we prove that every intersection
of essential submodules of $M$ is an essential submodule if and only if
$\Max(M)$ is an almost discrete space. The set of uniform
submodules of $M$ and the set of minimal submodules of $M$
coincide. $\Ann(\Soc(M))M$ is a summand submodule of $M$ if and only if
$\Max(M)$ is the union of two disjoint open subspaces $A$ and
$N$, where $A$ is almost discrete and $N$ is dense in itself. In
particular, $\Ann(\Soc(M))=\Ann(M)$ if and only if $\Max(M)$ is almost
discrete.

we generalize a result recently obtained by the author.

Relative Homotopy in Relational Structures
The homotopy groups of a finite partially ordered set (poset) can be
described entirely in the context of posets, as shown in a paper by
B. Larose and C. Tardif.
In this paper we describe the relative version of such a
homotopy theory, for pairs $(X,A)$ where $X$ is a poset and $A$ is a
subposet of $X$. We also prove some theorems on the relevant version
of the notion of weak homotopy equivalences for maps of pairs of such
objects. We work in the category of reflexive binary relational
structures which contains the posets as in the work of Larose and
Tardif.

The Kostrikin Radical and the Invariance of the Core of Reduced Extended Affine Lie Algebras
In this paper we prove that the Kostrikin radical of an extended affine Lie algebra of
reduced type coincides with the center of its core, and use this characterization to get a typefree
description of the core of such algebras. As a consequence we get that the core of an extended affine
Lie algebra of reduced type is invariant under the automorphisms of the algebra.

On the Classification of Rational Quantum Tori and the Structure of Their Automorphism Groups
An $n$dimensional quantum torus is a twisted group algebra of the
group $\Z^n$. It is called rational if all invertible commutators are roots
of unity. In the present note we describe a normal form for rational
$n$dimensional quantum
tori over any field. Moreover, we show that for
$n = 2$ the natural exact sequence
describing the automorphism group of the quantum torus splits over any
field.

A Multivalued Nonlinear System with the Vector $p$Laplacian on the SemiInfinity Interval
We study a second order nonlinear system driven by the vector
$p$Laplacian, with a multivalued nonlinearity and defined on
the positive time semiaxis $\mathbb{R}_+.$ Using degree
theoretic techniques we solve an auxiliary mixed boundary value
problem defined on the finite interval $[0,n]$ and then via a
diagonalization method we produce a solution for the original
infinite timehorizon system.

On GÃ¢teaux Differentiability of Pointwise Lipschitz Mappings
We prove that for every function $f\from X\to Y$,
where $X$ is a separable Banach space and $Y$ is a Banach space
with RNP, there exists a set $A\in\tilde\mcA$ such that $f$ is
G\^ateaux differentiable at all $x\in S(f)\setminus A$, where
$S(f)$ is the set of points where $f$ is pointwiseLipschitz.
This improves a result of Bongiorno. As a corollary,
we obtain that every $K$monotone function on a separable Banach space
is Hadamard differentiable outside of a set belonging to $\tilde\mcC$;
this improves a result due to Borwein and Wang.
Another corollary is that if $X$ is Asplund, $f\from X\to\R$ cone monotone,
$g\from X\to\R$ continuous convex, then there exists a point in $X$, where $f$ is Hadamard
differentiable and $g$ is Fr\'echet differentiable.

SteppingStone Model with Circular Brownian Migration
In this paper we consider the steppingstone model on a circle with
circular Brownian migration. We first point out a connection between
Arratia flow on the circle and the marginal distribution of this
model. We then give a new representation for the steppingstone
model using Arratia flow and circular coalescing Brownian motion.
Such a representation enables us to carry out some explicit
computations. In particular, we find the distribution for the first
time when there is only one type
left across the circle.

Dynamical Zeta Function for Several Strictly Convex Obstacles
The behavior of the dynamical zeta function $Z_D(s)$ related to
several strictly convex disjoint obstacles is similar to that of the
inverse $Q(s) = \frac{1}{\zeta(s)}$ of the Riemann zeta function
$\zeta(s)$. Let $\Pi(s)$ be the series obtained from $Z_D(s)$ summing
only over primitive periodic rays. In this paper we examine the
analytic singularities of $Z_D(s)$ and $\Pi(s)$ close to the line $\Re
s = s_2$, where $s_2$ is the abscissa of absolute convergence of the
series obtained by the second iterations of the primitive periodic
rays. We show that at least one of the functions $Z_D(s), \Pi(s)$
has a singularity at $s = s_2$.

Exotic Torsion, Frobenius Splitting and the Slope Spectral Sequence
In this paper we show that any Frobenius split, smooth, projective
threefold over a perfect field of characteristic $p>0$ is
HodgeWitt. This is proved by generalizing to the case of
threefolds a wellknown criterion due to N.~Nygaard for surfaces to be HodgeWitt.
We also show that the second crystalline
cohomology of any smooth, projective Frobenius split variety does
not have any exotic torsion. In the last two sections we include
some applications.

$p$Radial Exceptional Sets and Conformal Mappings
For $p>0$ and for a given set $E$ of type $G_{\delta}$ in the boundary
of the unit disc $\partial\mathbb D$ we construct a holomorphic function
$f\in\mathbb O(\mathbb D)$ such that
\[
\int_{\mathbb D\setminus[0,1]E}ft^{p}\,d\mathfrak{L}^{2}<\infty\]
and\[
E=E^{p}(f)=\Bigl\{ z\in\partial\mathbb D:\int_{0}^{1}f(tz)^{p}\,dt=\infty\Bigr\} .\]
In particular if a set $E$ has a measure equal to zero, then a function
$f$ is constructed as integrable with power $p$ on the unit disc $\mathbb D$.

continuous transformation of $G$. Define $f^*\colon G\to G$ by

that $H=\Imag f^*$ is a subgroup of $G$ and for every
measurable $C\subseteq H$,
$\mu_G((f^*)^{1}(C))=\mu_H(C)$. Then for every measurable
$C\subseteq G$, there exist $S\subseteq C$ and $g\in G$ such that
$f(Sg^{1})\subseteq Cg^{1}$ and $\mu(S)\ge(\mu(C))^2$.

Cohomological Dimension and Schreier's Formula in Galois Cohomology
Let $p$ be a prime and $F$ a field containing a primitive $p$th
root of unity. Then for $n\in \N$, the cohomological dimension
of the maximal pro$p$quotient $G$ of the absolute Galois group
of $F$ is at most $n$ if and only if the corestriction maps
$H^n(H,\Fp) \to H^n(G,\Fp)$ are surjective for all open
subgroups $H$ of index $p$. Using this result, we generalize
Schreier's formula for $\dim_{\Fp} H^1(H,\Fp)$ to $\dim_{\Fp}
H^n(H,\Fp)$.
