Homological Planes in the Grothendieck Ring of Varieties
In this note, we identify, in the Grothendieck group of complex
varieties $K_0(\mathrm Var_\mathbf{C})$, the classes of $\mathbf{Q}$homological
planes. Precisely, we prove that a connected smooth affine complex
algebraic surface $X$ is a $\mathbf{Q}$homological plane if
and only if $[X]=[\mathbf{A}^2_\mathbf{C}]$ in the ring $K_0(\mathrm Var_\mathbf{C})$
and $\mathrm{Pic}(X)_\mathbf{Q}:=\mathrm{Pic}(X)\otimes_\mathbf{Z}\mathbf{Q}=0$.

Periodic Solutions of Almost Linear Volterra Integrodynamic Equation on Periodic Time Scales
Using Krasnoselskii's fixed point theorem, we deduce
the existence of periodic solutions of nonlinear system of integrodynamic
equations on periodic time scales. These equations are
studied under a set of assumptions on the functions involved
in the
equations. The equations will be called almost linear when these
assumptions hold. The results of this papers are new for the
continuous and discrete time scales.

Some Normal Numbers Generated by Arithmetic Functions
Let $g \geq 2$. A real number is said to be $g$normal if its base $g$ expansion contains every finite sequence of digits with the expected limiting frequency. Let $\phi$ denote Euler's totient function, let $\sigma$ be the sumofdivisors function, and let $\lambda$ be Carmichael's lambdafunction. We show that if $f$ is any function formed by composing $\phi$, $\sigma$, or $\lambda$, then the number
\[ 0. f(1) f(2) f(3) \dots \]
obtained by concatenating the base $g$ digits of successive $f$values is $g$normal. We also prove the same result if the inputs $1, 2, 3, \dots$ are replaced with the primes $2, 3, 5, \dots$. The proof is an adaptation of a method introduced by Copeland and ErdÅs in 1946 to prove the $10$normality of $0.235711131719\ldots$.

Correction to "Infinite Dimensional DeWitt Supergroups and Their Bodies"
The Theorem below is a correction to Theorem
3.5 in the article
entitled " Infinite Dimensional DeWitt Supergroups and Their
Bodies" published
in Canad. Math. Bull. Vol. 57 (2) 2014 pp. 283288. Only part
(iii) of that Theorem
requires correction. The proof of Theorem 3.5 in the original
article failed to separate
the proof of (ii) from the proof of (iii). The proof of (ii)
is complete once it is established
that $ad_a$ is quasinilpotent for each $a$ since it immediately
follows that $K$
is quasinilpotent. The proof of (iii) is not complete
in the original article. The revision appears as the proof of
(iii) of the revised Theorem below.

A formula is provided to
explicitly describe global dimensions of all kinds of tree type

In particular, it is pointed out that if the underlying tree type
quiver has $n$ vertices, then the maximum of possible global
dimensions is $n1$.

$m$embedded Subgroups and $p$nilpotency of Finite Groups
Let $A$ be a subgroup of a finite group $G$ and $\Sigma : G_0\leq
G_1\leq\cdots \leq G_n$ some subgroup series of $G$. Suppose that
for each pair $(K,H)$ such that $K$ is a maximal subgroup of $H$ and
$G_{i1}\leq K \lt H\leq G_i$, for some $i$, either $A\cap H = A\cap K$
or $AH = AK$. Then $A$ is said to be $\Sigma$embedded in $G$; $A$
is said to be $m$embedded in $G$ if $G$ has a subnormal subgroup
$T$ and a $\{1\leq G\}$embedded subgroup $C$ in $G$ such that $G =
AT$ and $T\cap A\leq C\leq A$. In this article, some sufficient
conditions for a finite group $G$ to be $p$nilpotent are given
whenever all subgroups with order $p^{k}$ of a Sylow $p$subgroup of
$G$ are $m$embedded for a given positive integer $k$.

Geometric Perspective on Piecewise Polynomiality of Double Hurwitz Numbers
We describe double Hurwitz numbers as intersection numbers on the
moduli space of curves $\overline{\mathcal{M}}_{g,n}$. Using a result on the
polynomiality of intersection numbers of psi classes with the Double
Ramification Cycle, our formula explains the polynomiality in chambers
of double Hurwitz numbers, and the wall crossing phenomenon in terms
of a variation of correction terms to the $\psi$ classes. We
interpret this as suggestive evidence for polynomiality of the Double
Ramification Cycle (which is only known in genera $0$ and $1$).

Complexifying Lie Group Actions on Homogeneous Manifolds of Noncompact Dimension Two
If $X$ is a connected complex manifold with $d_X = 2$ that admits a (connected) Lie group $G$
acting transitively as a group of holomorphic transformations, then the action extends to an action of the
complexification $\widehat{G}$ of $G$ on $X$ except when
either the unit disk in the complex plane
or a strictly pseudoconcave homogeneous complex manifold is
the base or fiber of some homogeneous fibration of $X$.

Characters on $C(X)$
The precise condition on a completely regular space $X$ for every character on
$C(X) $ to be an evaluation at some point in $X$ is that $X$ be
realcompact. Usually, this classical result is obtained relying heavily on
involved (and even nonconstructive) extension arguments. This note provides a
direct proof that is accessible to a large audience.

Approximate Fixed Point Sequences of Nonlinear Semigroup in Metric Spaces
In this paper, we investigate the common
approximate fixed point sequences of nonexpansive semigroups of
nonlinear mappings $\{T_t\}_{t \geq 0}$, i.e., a family such that
$T_0(x)=x$, $T_{s+t}=T_s(T_t(x))$, where the domain is a metric space
$(M,d)$. In particular we prove that under suitable conditions, the
common approximate fixed point sequences set is the same as the common
approximate fixed point sequences set of two mappings from the family.
Then we use the Ishikawa iteration to construct a common approximate
fixed point sequence of nonexpansive semigroups of nonlinear
mappings.

Restriction Operators Acting on Radial Functions on Vector Spaces Over Finite Fields
We study $L^pL^r$ restriction estimates for
algebraic varieties $V$ in the case when restriction operators act on
radial functions in the finite field setting.
We show that if the varieties $V$ lie in odd dimensional vector
spaces over finite fields, then the conjectured restriction estimates
are possible for all radial test functions.
In addition, assuming that the varieties $V$ are defined in even
dimensional spaces and have few intersection points with the sphere
of zero radius, we also obtain the conjectured exponents for all
radial test functions.

Strong Asymptotic Freeness for Free Orthogonal Quantum Groups
It is known that the normalized standard generators of the free
orthogonal quantum group $O_N^+$ converge in distribution to a free
semicircular system as $N \to \infty$. In this note, we
substantially improve this convergence result by proving that, in
addition to distributional convergence, the operator norm of any
noncommutative polynomial in the normalized standard generators of
$O_N^+$ converges as $N \to \infty$ to the operator norm of the
corresponding noncommutative polynomial in a standard free
semicircular system. Analogous strong convergence results are obtained
for the generators of free unitary quantum groups. As applications of
these results, we obtain a matrixcoefficient version of our strong
convergence theorem, and we recover a well known $L^2$$L^\infty$ norm
equivalence for noncommutative polynomials in free semicircular
systems.

On the ${\mathcal F}{\Phi}$Hypercentre of Finite Groups
Let $G$ be a finite group, $\mathcal F$ a class of groups.
Then $Z_{{\mathcal F}{\Phi}}(G)$ is the ${\mathcal F}{\Phi}$hypercentre
of $G$ which is the product of all normal subgroups of $G$ whose
nonFrattini $G$chief factors are $\mathcal F$central in $G$. A
subgroup $H$ is called $\mathcal M$supplemented in a finite group
$G$, if there exists a subgroup $B$ of $G$ such that $G=HB$ and
$H_1B$ is a proper subgroup of $G$ for any maximal subgroup $H_1$
of $H$. The main purpose of this paper is to prove: Let $E$ be a
normal subgroup of a group $G$. Suppose that every noncyclic
Sylow
subgroup $P$ of $F^{*}(E)$ has a subgroup $D$ such that
$1\lt D\lt P$ and every subgroup $H$ of $P$ with order $H=D$
is
$\mathcal M$supplemented in $G$, then $E\leq Z_{{\mathcal
U}{\Phi}}(G)$.

On an Exponential Functional Inequality and its Distributional Version
Let $G$ be a group and $\mathbb K=\mathbb C$ or $\mathbb
R$.
In this article, as a generalization of the result of Albert
and Baker,
we investigate the behavior of bounded
and unbounded functions $f\colon G\to \mathbb K$ satisfying the inequality
$
\Biglf
\Bigl(\sum_{k=1}^n x_k
\Bigr)\prod_{k=1}^n f(x_k)
\Bigr\le \phi(x_2, \dots, x_n),\quad \forall\, x_1, \dots,
x_n\in G,
$
where $\phi\colon G^{n1}\to [0, \infty)$. Also, as a distributional
version of the above inequality we consider the stability of
the functional equation
\begin{equation*}
u\circ S  \overbrace{u\otimes \cdots \otimes u}^{n\text {times}}=0,
\end{equation*}
where $u$ is a Schwartz distribution or Gelfand hyperfunction,
$\circ$ and $\otimes$ are the pullback and tensor product of
distributions, respectively, and $S(x_1, \dots, x_n)=x_1+ \dots
+x_n$.
