On the Continued Fraction Expansion of Fixed Period in Finite Fields
The Chowla conjecture
states that,
if $t$ is any given
positive integer, there are infinitely many prime positive
integers $N$ such that $\operatorname{Per} (\sqrt{N})=t$, where
$\operatorname{Per} (\sqrt{N})$
is the period length of the continued fraction expansion for
$\sqrt{N}$.
C. Friesen proved
that, for any $k\in \mathbb{N}$, there are infinitely many
squarefree integers $N$, where the continued fraction expansion
of $\sqrt{N}$ has a fixed period. In this paper, we describe all
polynomials $Q\in \mathbb{F}_q[X] $ for which the continued fraction
expansion of $\sqrt {Q}$ has a fixed period, also we give a
lower
bound of the number of monic, nonsquares polynomials $Q$ such
that $\deg Q= 2d$ and $ Per \sqrt {Q}=t$.

On $s$semipermutable or $s$quasinormally Embedded Subgroups of Finite Groups
Suppose that $G$ is a
finite group and $H$ is a subgroup of $G$. $H$ is said to be
$s$semipermutable in $G$ if $HG_{p}=G_{p}H$ for any Sylow
$p$subgroup $G_{p}$ of $G$ with $(p,H)=1$; $H$ is said to be
$s$quasinormally embedded in $G$ if for each prime $p$ dividing the
order of $H$, a Sylow $p$subgroup of $H$ is also a Sylow
$p$subgroup of some $s$quasinormal subgroup of $G$. We fix in
every noncyclic Sylow subgroup $P$ of $G$ some subgroup $D$
satisfying $1\lt D\lt P$ and study the structure of $G$ under the
assumption that every subgroup $H$ of $P$ with $H=D$ is either
$s$semipermutable or $s$quasinormally embedded in $G$.
Some recent results are generalized and unified.

Homological Properties Relative to Injectively Resolving Subcategories
Let $\mathcal{E}$ be an injectively resolving subcategory of
left $R$modules. A left $R$module $M$
(resp. right $R$module $N$) is called $\mathcal{E}$injective
(resp. $\mathcal{E}$flat)
if $\operatorname{Ext}_R^1(G,M)=0$ (resp. $\operatorname{Tor}_1^R(N,G)=0$)
for any $G\in\mathcal{E}$.
Let $\mathcal{E}$ be a covering subcategory.
We prove that a left $R$module $M$ is $\mathcal{E}$injective
if and only if $M$ is a direct sum
of an injective left $R$module and a reduced $\mathcal{E}$injective
left $R$module.
Suppose $\mathcal{F}$ is a preenveloping subcategory of right
$R$modules such that
$\mathcal{E}^+\subseteq\mathcal{F}$ and $\mathcal{F}^+\subseteq\mathcal{E}$.
It is shown that a finitely presented right $R$module $M$ is
$\mathcal{E}$flat if and only if
$M$ is a cokernel of an $\mathcal{F}$preenvelope of a right
$R$module.
In addition, we introduce and investigate the
$\mathcal{E}$injective and $\mathcal{E}$flat dimensions of
modules and rings. We also introduce $\mathcal{E}$(semi)hereditary
rings and $\mathcal{E}$von Neumann regular rings and characterize
them in terms of $\mathcal{E}$injective and $\mathcal{E}$flat
modules.

Exact Morphism Category and Gorensteinprojective Representations
Let $Q$ be a finite acyclic quiver, $J$ be an ideal of $kQ$ generated
by all arrows in $Q$, $A$ be a finitedimensional $k$algebra. The
category of all finitedimensional representations of $(Q, J^2)$ over
$A$ is denoted by $\operatorname{rep}(Q, J^2, A)$. In this paper, we
introduce the category $\operatorname{exa}(Q,J^2,A)$, which is a
subcategory of
$\operatorname{rep}{}(Q,J^2,A)$ of all exact representations.
The main result of this paper explicitly describes the Gorensteinprojective representations in $\operatorname{rep}{}(Q,J^2,A)$,
via the exact representations plus an extra condition.
As a corollary, $A$ is a selfinjective algebra, if
and only if the Gorensteinprojective representations are exactly the
exact representations of $(Q, J^2)$ over $A$.

Local Heuristics and an Exact Formula for Abelian Surfaces Over Finite Fields
Consider a quartic $q$Weil polynomial $f$. Motivated by equidistribution
considerations, we define, for each prime $\ell$, a local factor
that
measures the relative frequency with which $f\bmod \ell$ occurs
as the
characteristic polynomial of a symplectic similitude over $\mathbb{F}_\ell$.
For a certain
class of polynomials, we show that the resulting infinite product
calculates the number of principally polarized abelian surfaces
over $\mathbb{F}_q$
with Weil polynomial $f$.

Generating Some Symmetric Semiclassical Orthogonal Polynomials
We show that if $v$ is a regular semiclassical form
(linear functional), then the symmetric form $u$ defined by the
relation
$x^{2}\sigma u = \lambda v$,
where $(\sigma f)(x)=f(x^{2})$ and the odd
moments of $u$ are $0$, is also
regular and semiclassical form for every
complex $\lambda $ except for a discrete set of numbers depending
on $v$. We give explicitly the threeterm recurrence relation
and the
structure relation coefficients of the orthogonal polynomials
sequence associated with $u$ and the class of the form $u$ knowing
that of $v$. We conclude with an illustrative example.

Universality Under SzegÅ's Condition
This paper presents a
theorem on universality on orthogonal polynomials/random matrices
under a weak local condition on the weight function $w$.
With a new inequality for
polynomials and with the use of fast decreasing polynomials,
it is shown that an approach of
D. S. Lubinsky is applicable. The proof works
at all points which are Lebesguepoints both
for the weight function $w$ and for $\log w$.

A Brief Note Concerning Hard Lefschetz for Chow Groups
We formulate a conjectural hard Lefschetz property

speaking, for varieties with finitedimensional motive, and
for varieties whose selfproduct has vanishing middledimensional
Griffiths group. An appendix includes related statements that
follow from results of Vial.

Ternary Quadratic Forms and Eta Quotients
Let $\eta(z)$ $(z \in \mathbb{C},\;\operatorname{Im}(z)\gt 0)$
denote the Dedekind eta function. We use a recent producttosum
formula in conjunction with conditions for the nonrepresentability
of integers by certain ternary quadratic forms to give explicitly
10 eta quotients
\[
f(z):=\eta^{a(m_1)}(m_1 z)\cdots \eta^{{a(m_r)}}(m_r z)=\sum_{n=1}^{\infty}c(n)e^{2\pi
i nz},\quad z \in \mathbb{C},\;\operatorname{Im}(z)\gt 0,
\]
such that the Fourier coefficients $c(n)$ vanish for all positive
integers $n$ in each of infinitely many nonoverlapping arithmetic
progressions. For example, it is shown that for $f(z)=\eta^4(z)\eta^{9}(4z)\eta^{2}(8z)$
we have $c(n)=0$ for all $n$ in each of the arithmetic progressions
$\{16k+14\}_{k \geq 0}$, $\{64k+56\}_{k \geq 0}$, $\{256k+224\}_{k
\geq 0}$, $\{1024k+896\}_{k \geq 0}$, $\ldots$.

Nonbranching RCD$(0,N)$ Geodesic Spaces with Small Linear Diameter Growth have Finitely Generated Fundamental Groups
In this paper, we generalize the finite generation result of
Sormani
to nonbranching $RCD(0,N)$
geodesic spaces (and in particular, Alexandrov spaces) with full
support measures. This is a special case of the Milnor's Conjecture
for complete noncompact $RCD(0,N)$ spaces. One of the key tools
we use is the AbreschGromoll type excess estimates for nonsmooth
spaces obtained by GigliMosconi.

On classes $Q_p^\#$ for Hyperbolic Riemann surfaces
The $Q_p$ spaces of holomorphic functions on
the disk, hyperbolic Riemann surfaces or complex unit ball have
been studied deeply.
Meanwhile, there are a lot of papers devoted to the $Q^\#_p$
classes of meromorphic functions on the disk or hyperbolic Riemann
surfaces. In this paper, we prove the nesting property (inclusion
relations) of $Q^\#_p$ classes on hyperbolic Riemann surfaces.
The same property for $Q_p$ spaces was also established systematically
and precisely in
earlier work
by the authors of this paper.

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 $X$.

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.

results in the theory of central simple algebras.
For global fields, we prove a stronger form of the vanishing

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 $g_i(x, 0)=h_j(x, 0)=0$.

It is well known that the factorization properties of a domain are reflected

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
$\geq 0$.
