A moduletheoretic characterization of algebraic hypersurfaces
In this note we prove the following surprising characterization:
if
$X\subset {\mathbb A}^n$ is an (embedded, nonempty, proper)
algebraic variety defined over a
field $k$ of characteristic zero, then $X$ is a hypersurface
if and only if the module $T_{{\mathcal O}_{{\mathbb
A}^n}/k}(X)$ of logarithmic vector fields of
$X$ is a reflexive ${\mathcal
O}_{{\mathbb A}^n}$module. As a consequence of this result,
we derive that if $T_{{\mathcal O}_{{\mathbb A}^n}/k}(X)$ is a
free ${\mathcal
O}_{{\mathbb A}^n}$module, which is shown to be equivalent
to the freeness of the $t$th exterior power of $T_{{\mathcal O}_{{\mathbb
A}^n}/k}(X)$ for some (in fact, any) $t\leq n$, then necessarily
$X$ is a Saito free divisor.

On the dimension of the locus of determinantal hypersurfaces
The characteristic polynomial $P_A(x_0, \dots,
x_r)$
of an $r$tuple $A := (A_1, \dots, A_r)$ of $n \times n$matrices
is
defined as
\[ P_A(x_0, \dots, x_r) := \det(x_0 I + x_1 A_1 + \dots + x_r
A_r) \, . \]
We show that if $r \geqslant 3$
and $A := (A_1, \dots, A_r)$ is an $r$tuple of $n \times n$matrices in general position,
then up to conjugacy, there are only finitely many $r$tuples
$A' := (A_1', \dots, A_r')$ such that $p_A = p_{A'}$. Equivalently,
the locus of determinantal hypersurfaces of degree $n$ in $\mathbf{P}^r$
is irreducible of dimension $(r1)n^2 + 1$.

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 $R$.

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.

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 $f$.

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.

Spectral Properties of a Family of Minimal Tori of Revolution in Fivedimensional Sphere
The normalized eigenvalues $\Lambda_i(M,g)$ of the LaplaceBeltrami
operator can be considered as functionals on the space of all
Riemannian metrics $g$ on a fixed surface $M$. In recent papers
several explicit examples of extremal metrics were provided.
These metrics are induced by minimal immersions of surfaces in
$\mathbb{S}^3$ or $\mathbb{S}^4$. In the present paper a family
of extremal metrics induced by minimal immersions in $\mathbb{S}^5$
is investigated.

Helicoidal Minimal Surfaces in a Finsler Space of Randers Type
We consider the Finsler space $(\bar{M}^3, \bar{F})$ obtained by
perturbing the Euclidean metric of $\mathbb{R}^3$ by a rotation. It
is the open region of $\mathbb{R}^3$ bounded by a cylinder with a
Randers metric. Using the BusemannHausdorff volume form, we
obtain the differential equation that characterizes the helicoidal
minimal surfaces in $\bar{M}^3$. We prove that the helicoid is a
minimal surface in $\bar{M}^3$, only if the axis of the helicoid
is the axis of the cylinder. Moreover, we prove that, in the
Randers space $(\bar{M}^3, \bar{F})$, the only minimal
surfaces in the Bonnet family, with fixed axis $O\bar{x}^3$, are the catenoids
and the helicoids.

A Short Note on Short Pants
It is a theorem of Bers that any closed hyperbolic surface admits a pants decomposition consisting of curves of bounded length where the bound only depends on the topology of the surface. The question of the quantification of the optimal constants has been well studied and the best upper bounds to date are linear in genus, a theorem of Buser and SeppÃ¤lÃ¤. The goal of this note is to give a short proof of a linear upper bound which slightly improve the best known bound.

Inclusion Relations for New Function Spaces on Riemann Surfaces
We introduce and study some new function spaces on Riemann
surfaces. For certain parameter values these spaces coincide with
the classical Dirichlet space, BMOA or the recently
defined $Q_p$ space. We establish inclusion relations that
generalize earlier known inclusions between the abovementioned
spaces.

Linear Dispersive Decay Estimates for the 3+1 Dimensional Water Wave Equation with Surface Tension
We consider the linearization of the threedimensional water waves
equation with surface tension about a flat interface. Using
oscillatory integral methods, we prove that solutions of this equation
demonstrate dispersive decay at the somewhat surprising rate of
$t^{5/6}$. This rate is due to competition between surface tension
and gravitation at $O(1)$ wave numbers and is connected to the fact
that, in the presence of surface tension, there is a socalled "slowest
wave". Additionally, we combine our dispersive estimates with $L^2$
type energy bounds to prove a family of Strichartz estimates.

Restriction of the Tangent Bundle of $G/P$ to a Hypersurface
Let P be a maximal proper parabolic subgroup of a connected simple linear algebraic group G, defined over $\mathbb C$, such that $n := \dim_{\mathbb C} G/P \geq 4$. Let $\iota \colon Z \hookrightarrow G/P$ be a reduced smooth hypersurface of degree at least $(n1)\cdot \operatorname{degree}(T(G/P))/n$. We prove that the restriction of the tangent bundle $\iota^*TG/P$ is semistable.
