Distributive and antidistributive Mendelsohn triple systems
We prove that the existence spectrum of Mendelsohn triple systems
whose associated quasigroups satisfy distributivity corresponds
to the Loeschian numbers, and provide some enumeration results.
We do this by considering a description of the quasigroups in
terms of commutative Moufang loops.
In addition we provide constructions of Mendelsohn quasigroups
that fail distributivity for as many combinations of elements
as possible.
These systems are analogues of Hall triple systems and antimitre
Steiner triple systems respectively.

Betti Numbers and Flat Dimensions of Local Cohomology Modules
Assume that $R$ is a commutative Noetherian ring with nonzero
identity, $\mathfrak{a}$ is an ideal of $R$ and $X$ is an $R$module.
In this paper, we first study the finiteness of Betti numbers
of local cohomology modules $\operatorname{H}_\mathfrak{a}^i(X)$. Then we give some
inequalities between the Betti numbers of $X$ and those of its
local cohomology modules. Finally, we present many upper bounds
for the flat dimension of $X$ in terms of the flat dimensions
of its local cohomology modules and an upper bound for the flat
dimension of $\operatorname{H}_\mathfrak{a}^i(X)$ in terms of the flat dimensions of
the modules $\operatorname{H}_\mathfrak{a}^j(X)$, $j\not= i$, and that of $X$.

Minimal Non Self Dual Groups
A group $G$ is self dual if every
subgroup
of $G$ is isomorphic to a quotient of $G$ and every quotient
of $G$ is isomorphic to
a subgroup of $G$. It is minimal nonself dual if every
proper subgroup of $G$
is self dual but $G$ is not self dual. In this paper, the structure
of minimal nonself dual groups is determined.

The Contraction Principle for Multivalued Mappings on a Modular Metric Space with a Graph
We study the existence of fixed points for contraction multivalued
mappings in modular metric spaces endowed with a graph. The
notion of a modular metric on an arbitrary set and the corresponding
modular spaces, generalizing classical modulars over linear spaces
like Orlicz spaces, were recently introduced. This paper can
be seen as a generalization of Nadler's and Edelstein's fixed
point theorems to modular metric spaces endowed with a graph.

Higher Moments of Fourier Coefficients of Cusp Forms
Let $S_{k}(\Gamma)$ be the space of holomorphic cusp
forms of even integral weight $k$ for the full modular group

$\lambda_g(n)^2\lambda_h(n)^4$, and $\lambda_g(n^3)^2$ twisted

Vanishing of Massey products and Brauer groups
Let $p$ be a prime number and $F$ a field containing a root of
unity of order $p$.
We relate recent results on vanishing of triple Massey products
in the mod$p$ Galois cohomology of $F$,
due to Hopkins, Wickelgren, MinÃ¡Ä, and TÃ¢n, to classical
results in the theory of central simple algebras.
For global fields, we prove a stronger form of the vanishing
property.

Ground State Solutions of NehariPankov Type for a Superlinear Hamiltonian Elliptic System on ${\mathbb{R}}^{N}$
This paper is concerned with the following
elliptic system of Hamiltonian type
\[
\left\{
\begin{array}{ll}
\triangle u+V(x)u=W_{v}(x, u, v), \ \ \ \ x\in {\mathbb{R}}^{N},
\\
\triangle v+V(x)v=W_{u}(x, u, v), \ \ \ \ x\in {\mathbb{R}}^{N},
\\
u, v\in H^{1}({\mathbb{R}}^{N}),
\end{array}
\right.
\]
where the potential $V$ is periodic and $0$ lies in a gap of
the spectrum of $\Delta+V$, $W(x, s, t)$ is
periodic in $x$ and superlinear in $s$ and $t$ at infinity.
We develop a direct approach to find ground
state solutions of NehariPankov type for the above system.
Especially, our method is applicable for the
case when
\[
W(x, u, v)=\sum_{i=1}^{k}\int_{0}^{\alpha_iu+\beta_iv}g_i(x,
t)t\mathrm{d}t
+\sum_{j=1}^{l}\int_{0}^{\sqrt{u^2+2b_juv+a_jv^2}}h_j(x,
t)t\mathrm{d}t,
\]
where $\alpha_i, \beta_i, a_j, b_j\in \mathbb{R}$ with $\alpha_i^2+\beta_i^2\ne
0$ and $a_j\gt b_j^2$, $g_i(x, t)$
and $h_j(x, t)$ are nondecreasing in $t\in \mathbb{R}^{+}$ for every
$x\in \mathbb{R}^N$ and $g_i(x, 0)=h_j(x, 0)=0$.

On the Graph of Divisibility of an Integral Domain
It is well known that the factorization properties of a domain are reflected
in the structure of its group of divisibility. The main theme of this paper
is to introduce a topological/graphtheoretic point of view to the current
understanding of factorization in integral domains. We also show that
connectedness properties in the graph and topological space give rise to a
generalization of atomicity.

Ricci Curvature Tensor and NonRiemannian Quantities
There are several notions of Ricci curvature tensor
in Finsler geometry and spray geometry. One of them is defined by the
Hessian of the wellknown Ricci curvature.
In this paper we will introduce a new notion of Ricci curvature
tensor and discuss its relationship with the Ricci curvature and some
nonRiemannian quantities. By this Ricci curvature tensor, we shall
have a better understanding on these nonRiemannian quantities.

A Specialisation of the BumpFriedberg $L$function
We study the restriction of the BumpFriedberg integrals to affine
lines $\{(s+\alpha,2s),s\in\mathbb{C}\}$.
It has a simple theory, very close to that of the Asai $L$function.
It is an integral representation of the product
$L(s+\alpha,\pi)L(2s,\Lambda^2,\pi)$ which we denote by $L^{lin}(s,\pi,\alpha)$
for this abstract, when $\pi$ is a cuspidal automorphic
representation of $GL(k,\mathbb{A})$ for
$\mathbb{A}$ the adeles of a number field. When $k$ is even, we show
that for a cuspidal automorphic representation $\pi$,
the partial $L$function $L^{lin,S}(s,\pi,\alpha)$ has a pole
at $1/2$, if and only if $\pi$ admits a (twisted) global
period, this gives a more direct proof of a
theorem of Jacquet and Friedberg, asserting
that $\pi$ has a twisted global period if and only if $L(\alpha+1/2,\pi)\neq
0$ and $L(1,\Lambda^2,\pi)=\infty$.
When $k$ is odd, the partial $L$function is holmorphic in a
neighbourhood of $Re(s)\geq 1/2$ when $Re(\alpha)$ is
$\geq 0$.

Almost Sure Global Wellposedness for the Fractional Cubic SchrÃ¶dinger Equation on Torus
In a previous paper, we proved that $1$d periodic fractional
SchrÃ¶dinger equation with cubic nonlinearity is locally wellposed
in $H^s$ for $s\gt \frac{1\alpha}{2}$ and globally wellposed for
$s\gt \frac{10\alpha1}{12}$. In this paper we define an invariant
probability measure $\mu$ on $H^s$ for $s\lt \alpha\frac{1}{2}$,
so that for any $\epsilon\gt 0$ there is a set $\Omega\subset H^s$
such that $\mu(\Omega^c)\lt \epsilon$ and the equation is globally
wellposed for initial data in $\Omega$. We see that this fills
the gap between the local wellposedness and the global wellposedness
range in almost sure sense for $\frac{1\alpha}{2}\lt \alpha\frac{1}{2}$,
i.e. $\alpha\gt \frac{2}{3}$ in almost sure sense.

Hyperplanes in the Space of Convergent Sequences and Preduals of $\ell_1$
The main aim of the present paper is to investigate various structural
properties
of hyperplanes of $c$, the Banach space of the convergent sequences.
In particular, we give an explicit formula for the projection
constants and we prove that an hyperplane of $c$ is isometric
to the whole space if and only if it is $1$complemented. Moreover,
we obtain the classification
of those hyperplanes for which their duals are isometric to
$\ell_{1}$ and we give a complete description of the preduals
of $\ell_{1}$ under the assumption that the standard basis of
$\ell_{1}$
is weak$^{*}$convergent.

On the maximum curvature of closed curves in negatively curved manifolds
Motivated by Almgren's work on the isoperimetric inequality,
we prove a sharp inequality relating the length and maximum curvature
of a closed curve in a complete, simply connected manifold of
sectional curvature at most $1$. Moreover, if equality holds,
then the norm of the geodesic curvature is constant and the torsion
vanishes. The proof involves an application of the maximum principle
to a function defined on pairs of points.

$L$functions for Quadratic Characters and Annihilation of Motivic Cohomology Groups
Let $n$ be a positive even integer, and let $F$ be a totally real
number field and $L$ be an abelian Galois extension which is totally
real or CM.
Fix a finite set $S$ of primes of $F$ containing the infinite primes
and all those which ramify in
$L$, and let $S_L$ denote the primes of $L$ lying above those in
$S$. Then $\mathcal{O}_L^S$ denotes the ring of $S_L$integers of $L$.
Suppose that $\psi$ is a quadratic character of the Galois group of
$L$ over $F$. Under the assumption of the motivic Lichtenbaum
conjecture, we obtain a nontrivial annihilator of the motivic
cohomology group
$H_\mathcal{M}^2(\mathcal{O}_L^S,\mathbb{Z}(n))$ from the lead term of the Taylor series for the
$S$modified Artin $L$function $L_{L/F}^S(s,\psi)$ at $s=1n$.

Quantum Unique Ergodicity on Locally Symmetric Spaces: the Degenerate Lift
Given a measure $\bar\mu_\infty$ on a locally symmetric space $Y=\Gamma\backslash
G/K$,
obtained as a weak{*} limit of probability measures associated
to
eigenfunctions of the ring of invariant differential operators,
we
construct a measure $\bar\mu_\infty$ on the homogeneous space $X=\Gamma\backslash
G$
which lifts $\bar\mu_\infty$ and which is invariant by a connected subgroup
$A_{1}\subset A$ of positive dimension, where $G=NAK$ is an Iwasawa
decomposition. If the functions are, in addition, eigenfunctions
of
the Hecke operators, then $\bar\mu_\infty$ is also the limit of measures
associated
to Hecke eigenfunctions on $X$. This generalizes results of the
author
with A. Venkatesh in the case where the spectral parameters
stay
away from the walls of the Weyl chamber.

A Note on Planarity Stratification of Hurwitz Spaces
One can easily show that any meromorphic function
on a complex closed Riemann surface can be represented as a
composition of a birational map of this surface to $\mathbb{CP}^2$ and
a projection of the image curve from an appropriate point
$p\in \mathbb{CP}^2$ to the pencil of lines through $p$. We introduce
a natural stratification of Hurwitz spaces according to the
minimal degree of a plane curve such that a given meromorphic
function can be represented in the above way and calculate the
dimensions of these strata. We observe that they are closely
related to a family of Severi varieties studied earlier by J. Harris,
Z. Ran and I. Tyomkin.

Cover Product and Betti Polynomial of Graphs
For disjoint graphs $G$ and $H$, with fixed
vertex covers
$C(G)$ and $C(H)$, their cover product is the graph $G
\circledast
H$ with vertex set
$V(G)\cup V(H)$ and edge set $E(G)\cup E(H)\cup\{\{i,j\}:i\in
C(G), j\in
C(H)\}$. We describe the graded Betti numbers of $G\circledast
H$ in terms of those of
$G$ and $H$. As applications we obtain: (i) For any positive
integer $k$ there
exists a connected bipartite graph $G$ such that $\operatorname{reg}
R/I(G)=\mu_S(G)+k$, where,
$I(G)$ denotes the edge ideal of $G$, $\operatorname{reg} R/I(G)$
is the CastelnuovoMumford
regularity of $R/I(G)$ and $\mu_S(G)$ is the induced or strong
matching number of
$G$; (ii) The graded Betti numbers of the complement of a tree
only depends upon
its number of vertices; (iii) The $h$vector of $R/I(G\circledast
H)$ is described in
terms of the $h$vectors of $R/I(G)$ and $R/I(H)$. Furthermore,
in a different
direction, we give a recursive formula for the graded Betti numbers
of chordal
bipartite graphs.

On the Largest Dynamic Monopolies of Graphs with a Given Average Threshold
Let $G$ be a graph and $\tau$ be an assignment of nonnegative
integer thresholds to the vertices of $G$. A subset of vertices,
$D$ is said to be a $\tau$dynamic monopoly, if $V(G)$ can be
partitioned into subsets $D_0, D_1, \ldots, D_k$ such that $D_0=D$
and for any $i\in \{0, \ldots, k1\}$, each vertex $v$ in $D_{i+1}$
has at least $\tau(v)$ neighbors in $D_0\cup \ldots \cup D_i$.
Denote the size of smallest $\tau$dynamic monopoly by $dyn_{\tau}(G)$
and the average of thresholds in $\tau$ by $\overline{\tau}$.
We show that the values of $dyn_{\tau}(G)$ over all assignments
$\tau$ with the same average threshold is a continuous set of
integers. For any positive number $t$, denote the maximum $dyn_{\tau}(G)$
taken over all threshold assignments $\tau$ with $\overline{\tau}\leq
t$, by $Ldyn_t(G)$. In fact, $Ldyn_t(G)$ shows the worstcase
value of a dynamic monopoly when the average threshold is a given
number $t$. We investigate under what conditions on $t$, there
exists an upper bound for $Ldyn_{t}(G)$ of the form $cG$, where
$c\lt 1$. Next, we show that $Ldyn_t(G)$ is coNPhard for planar
graphs but has polynomialtime solution for forests.

On the Structure of Cuntz Semigroups in (Possibly) Nonunital C*algebras
We examine the ranks of operators in semifinite $\mathrm{C}^*$algebras
as measured by their densely defined lower semicontinuous traces.
We first prove that a unital simple $\mathrm{C}^*$algebra whose
extreme tracial boundary is nonempty and finite contains positive
operators of every possible rank, independent of the property
of strict comparison. We then turn to nonunital simple algebras
and establish criteria that imply that the Cuntz semigroup is
recovered functorially from the Murrayvon Neumann semigroup
and the space of densely defined lower semicontinuous traces.
Finally, we prove that these criteria are satisfied by notnecessarilyunital
approximately subhomogeneous algebras of slow dimension growth.
Combined with results of the firstnamed author, this shows that
slow dimension growth coincides with $\mathcal Z$stability,
for approximately subhomogeneous algebras.

A Fixed Point Theorem and the Existence of a Haar Measure for Hypergroups Satisfying Conditions Related to Amenability
In this paper we present a fixed point property for amenable
hypergroups which is analogous to Rickert's fixed point theorem
for semigroups. It equates the existence of a left invariant
mean on the space of weakly right uniformly continuous functions
to the existence of a fixed point for any action of the hypergroup.
Using this fixed point property, a certain class of hypergroups
are shown to have a left Haar measure.
