Degree Kirchhoff Index of Bicyclic Graphs
Let $G$ be a connected graph with vertex set $V(G)$. The degree
Kirchhoff index of $G$ is defined as $S'(G) =\sum_{\{u,v\}\subseteq
V(G)}d(u)d(v)R(u,v)$, where $d(u)$ is the degree of vertex $u$,
and
$R(u, v)$ denotes the resistance distance between vertices $u$
and
$v$. In this paper, we characterize the graphs having maximum
and
minimum degree Kirchhoff index among all $n$vertex bicyclic
graphs
with exactly two cycles.

On a Conjecture of Livingston
In an attempt to resolve a folklore conjecture of ErdÃ¶s regarding
the nonvanishing at $s=1$ of the $L$series
attached to a periodic arithmetical function with period $q$
and values in $\{ 1, 1\} $, Livingston conjectured the $\bar{\mathbb{Q}}$
 linear independence of logarithms of certain algebraic numbers.
In this paper, we disprove Livingston's conjecture for composite
$q \geq 4$, highlighting that a new approach is required to settle
ErdÃ¶s's conjecture. We also prove that the conjecture is
true for prime $q \geq 3$, and indicate that more ingredients
will be needed to settle ErdÃ¶s's conjecture for prime $q$.

On Ulam Stability of a Functional Equation in Banach Modules
Let $X$ and $Y$ be Banach spaces and $f : X \to Y$ an odd mapping.
For any rational number $r \ne 2$, C. Baak, D. H.
Boo, and Th. M. Rassias have proved the HyersUlam stability
of the following functional equation:
\begin{align*}
r f
\left(\frac{\sum_{j=1}^d x_j}{r}
\right)
& + \sum_{\substack{i(j) \in \{0,1\}
\\ \sum_{j=1}^d i(j)=\ell}} r f
\left(
\frac{\sum_{j=1}^d (1)^{i(j)}x_j}{r}
\right)
= (C^\ell_{d1}  C^{\ell 1}_{d1} + 1) \sum_{j=1}^d
f(x_j)
\end{align*}
where $d$ and $\ell$ are positive integers so that $1 \lt \ell
\lt \frac{d}{2}$, and $C^p_q := \frac{q!}{(qp)!p!}$,
$p, q \in \mathbb{N}$ with $p \le q$.
In this note we solve this equation for arbitrary nonzero scalar
$r$ and show that it is actually HyersUlam stable.
We thus extend and generalize Baak et al.'s result.
Different questions concerning the *homomorphisms and the
multipliers between C*algebras are also
considered.

Stability Threshold for Scalar Linear Periodic Delay Differential Equations
We prove that for the linear scalar delay differential
equation
$$ \dot{x}(t) =  a(t)x(t) + b(t)x(t1) $$
with nonnegative periodic coefficients of period $P\gt 0$, the
stability threshold for the trivial solution is
$r:=\int_{0}^{P}
\left(b(t)a(t)
\right)\mathrm{d}t=0,$
assuming that $b(t+1)a(t)$ does not change its sign. By constructing
a class of explicit examples, we show the counterintuitive result
that in general, $r=0$ is not a stability threshold.

Luzintype holomorphic approximation on closed subsets of open Riemann surfaces
It is known that if $E$ is a closed subset of an open Riemann
surface $R$ and $f$ is a holomorphic function on a neighbourhood
of $E,$ then it is ``usually" not possible to approximate $f$
uniformly by functions holomorphic on all of $R.$ We show, however,
that for every open Riemann surface $R$ and every closed subset
$E\subset R,$ there is closed subset $F\subset E,$ which approximates
$E$ extremely well, such that every function holomorphic on $F$
can be approximated much better than uniformly by functions holomorphic
on $R$.

Mixed $f$divergence for multiple pairs of measures
In this paper, the concept of the classical $f$divergence for
a pair of measures is extended to the mixed $f$divergence for
multiple pairs of measures. The mixed $f$divergence provides
a way to measure the difference between multiple pairs of (probability)
measures. Properties for the mixed $f$divergence are established,
such as permutation invariance and symmetry in distributions.
An
AlexandrovFenchel type inequality and an isoperimetric inequality
for the
mixed $f$divergence are proved.

On Chromatic Functors and Stable Partitions of Graphs
The chromatic functor of a simple graph is a functorization of
the chromatic polynomial. M. Yoshinaga showed
that two finite graphs have isomorphic chromatic functors if
and only if they have the same chromatic polynomial. The key
ingredient in the proof is the use of stable partitions of graphs.
The latter is shown to be closely related to chromatic functors.
In this note, we further investigate some interesting properties
of chromatic functors associated to simple graphs using stable
partitions. Our first result is the determination of the group
of natural automorphisms of the chromatic functor, which is in
general a larger group than the automorphism group of the graph.
The second result is that the composition of the chromatic functor
associated to a finite graph restricted to the category $\mathrm{FI}$
of finite sets and injections with the free functor into the
category of complex vector spaces yields a consistent sequence
of representations of symmetric groups which is representation
stable in the sense of ChurchFarb.

Power Series Rings Over PrÃ¼fer $v$multiplication Domains, II
Let $D$ be an integral domain, $X^1(D)$ be the set of heightone
prime ideals of $D$,
$\{X_{\beta}\}$ and $\{X_{\alpha}\}$ be
two disjoint nonempty sets of indeterminates over $D$,
$D[\{X_{\beta}\}]$ be the polynomial ring over $D$, and
$D[\{X_{\beta}\}][\![\{X_{\alpha}\}]\!]_1$ be the first type
power series ring over $D[\{X_{\beta}\}]$.
Assume that $D$ is a PrÃ¼fer $v$multiplication domain (P$v$MD)
in which each proper integral $t$ideal has only finitely many
minimal prime ideals
(e.g., $t$SFT P$v$MDs, valuation domains, rings of Krull type).
Among other things, we show that if
$X^1(D) = \emptyset$ or $D_P$ is a DVR for all $P \in X^1(D)$,
then
${D[\{X_{\beta}\}][\![\{X_{\alpha}\}]\!]_1}_{D  \{0\}}$ is a
Krull domain.
We also prove that if $D$ is a $t$SFT P$v$MD, then the complete
integral closure of $D$ is a Krull domain and
ht$(M[\{X_{\beta}\}][\![\{X_{\alpha}\}]\!]_1)$ = $1$ for every
heightone maximal $t$ideal $M$ of $D$.

Abstract Plancherel (Trace) Formulas over Homogeneous Spaces of Compact Groups
This paper introduces a unified operator theory approach to the
abstract Plancherel (trace) formulas over
homogeneous spaces of compact groups. Let $G$ be a compact group
and $H$ be a closed subgroup of $G$.
Let $G/H$ be the left coset space of $H$ in $G$ and $\mu$ be
the normalized $G$invariant measure on $G/H$ associated to the
Weil's formula.
Then, we present a generalized abstract notion of Plancherel
(trace) formula for the Hilbert space $L^2(G/H,\mu)$.

Artin Approximation Compatible with a Change of Variables
We propose a version of the classical Artin
approximation
which allows to perturb the variables of the approximated solution. Namely, it is possible to approximate a formal solution of a
Nash equation by a Nash solution in a
compatible way with a given Nash change of variables.
This result is closely related to the socalled nested Artin
approximation and becomes false in the analytic setting. We provide
local and global versions of this approximation in real and complex
geometry together with an application to the RightLeft equivalence
of Nash maps.

Lipschitz Retractions in Hadamard Spaces Via Gradient Flow Semigroups
Let $X(n),$ for $n\in\mathbb{N},$ be the set of all subsets of a metric
space $(X,d)$ of cardinality at most $n.$ The set $X(n)$ equipped
with the Hausdorff metric is called a finite subset space. In
this paper we are concerned with the existence of Lipschitz retractions
$r\colon X(n)\to X(n1)$ for $n\ge2.$ It is known that such retractions
do not exist if $X$ is the onedimensional sphere. On the other
hand L. Kovalev has recently established their existence in case $X$
is a Hilbert space and he also posed a question as to whether
or not such Lipschitz retractions exist for $X$ being a Hadamard
space. In the present paper we answer this question in the positive.

Real Hypersurfaces in Complex Twoplane Grassmannians with Reeb Parallel Ricci Tensor in the GTW Connection
There are several kinds of classification problems for real hypersurfaces
in complex twoplane Grassmannians $G_2({\mathbb C}^{m+2})$.
Among them, Suh classified Hopf hypersurfaces $M$ in $G_2({\mathbb
C}^{m+2})$ with Reeb parallel Ricci tensor in LeviCivita connection.
In this paper, we introduce the notion of generalized TanakaWebster
(in shortly, GTW) Reeb parallel Ricci tensor for Hopf hypersurface
$M$ in $G_2({\mathbb C}^{m+2})$. Next, we give a complete classification
of Hopf hypersurfaces in $G_2({\mathbb C}^{m+2})$ with GTW Reeb
parallel Ricci tensor.

recent theorems of Chiswell, Glass and Wilson.
Amongst all knots with 12 or fewer crossings (of which there

of 499 of the corresponding knot groups. With our methods we
are able to deal with 191 more.

Generalized Equivariant Cohomology and Stratifications
For $T$ a compact torus and $E_T^*$ a generalized $T$equivariant
cohomology theory, we provide a systematic framework for computing
$E_T^*$ in the context of equivariantly stratified smooth complex
projective varieties. This allows us to explicitly compute $E_T^*(X)$
as an $E_T^*(\text{pt})$module when $X$ is a direct limit of
smooth complex projective $T_{\mathbb{C}}$varieties with finitely
many $T$fixed points and $E_T^*$ is one of $H_T^*(\cdot;\mathbb{Z})$,
$K_T^*$, and $MU_T^*$. We perform this computation on the affine
Grassmannian of a complex semisimple group.

On the Diameter of Unitary Cayley Graphs of Rings
The unitary Cayley graph of a ring $R$, denoted
$\Gamma(R)$, is the simple graph
defined on all elements of $R$, and where two vertices $x$ and
$y$
are adjacent if and only if $xy$ is a unit in $R$. The largest
distance between all pairs of vertices of a graph $G$ is called
the
diameter of $G$, and is denoted by ${\rm diam}(G)$. It is proved
that for each integer $n\geq1$, there exists a ring $R$ such
that
${\rm diam}(\Gamma(R))=n$. We also show that ${\rm
diam}(\Gamma(R))\in \{1,2,3,\infty\}$ for a ring $R$ with $R/J(R)$
selfinjective and classify all those rings with ${\rm
diam}(\Gamma(R))=1$, 2, 3 and $\infty$, respectively.

Eigenvalues of $ \Delta_p \Delta_q $ Under Neumann Boundary Condition
The
eigenvalue problem $\Delta_p u\Delta_q u=\lambdau^{q2}u$
with $p\in(1,\infty)$, $q\in(2,\infty)$, $p\neq q$ subject to
the
corresponding homogeneous Neumann boundary condition is
investigated on a bounded open set with smooth boundary from
$\mathbb{R}^N$ with $N\geq 2$. A careful analysis of this problem leads
us to a complete description of the set of eigenvalues as being
a
precise interval $(\lambda_1, +\infty )$ plus an isolated point
$\lambda =0$. This comprehensive result is strongly related to
our
framework which is complementary to the wellknown case $p=q\neq
