Modular Reduction in Abstract Polytopes The paper studies modular reduction techniques for abstract regular
and chiral polytopes, with two purposes in mind:\ first, to survey the
literature about modular reduction in polytopes; and second, to apply
modular reduction, with moduli given by primes in $\mathbb{Z}[\tau]$
(with $\tau$ the golden ratio), to construct new regular $4$-polytopes
of hyperbolic types $\{3,5,3\}$ and $\{5,3,5\}$ with automorphism
groups given by finite orthogonal groups.

Cohomological Dimension and Schreier's Formula in Galois Cohomology Let $p$ be a prime and $F$ a field containing a primitive $p$-th
root of unity. Then for $n\in \N$, the cohomological dimension
of the maximal pro-$p$-quotient $G$ of the absolute Galois group
of $F$ is at most $n$ if and only if the corestriction maps
$H^n(H,\Fp) \to H^n(G,\Fp)$ are surjective for all open
subgroups $H$ of index $p$. Using this result, we generalize
Schreier's formula for $\dim_{\Fp} H^1(H,\Fp)$ to $\dim_{\Fp}
H^n(H,\Fp)$.

Inner $E_0$-Semigroups on Infinite Factors This paper is concerned with the structure of
inner $E_0$-semigroups. We show that any inner
$E_0$-semigroup acting on an infinite factor
$M$ is completely determined by a continuous
tensor product system of Hilbert spaces in
$M$ and that the product system associated
with an inner $E_0$-semigroup is a complete cocycle conjugacy invariant.

Non Abelian Twisted Reidemeister Torsion for Fibered Knots In this article, we give an explicit formula to compute the
non abelian twisted sign-deter\-mined Reidemeister torsion of the
exterior of a fibered knot in terms of its monodromy. As an
application, we give explicit formulae for the non abelian
Reidemeister torsion of torus knots and of the figure eight knot.

Additive Riemann--Hilbert Problem in Line Bundles Over $\mathbb{CP}^1$ In this note we consider $\overline\partial$-problem in
line bundles over complex projective space $\mathbb{CP}^1$
and prove that the
equation can be solved for $(0,1)$ forms with compact support. As a
consequence, any Cauchy-Riemann function on a compact real hypersurface in
such line bundles is a jump of two holomorphic functions defined on the
sides of the hypersurface. In particular, the results can be applied to
$\mathbb{CP}^2$ since by removing a point from it we get a line bundle over
$\mathbb{CP}^1$.

On the Generalized d'Alembert's and Wilson's Functional Equations on a Compact group Let $G$ be a compact group. Let $\sigma$ be a continuous involution
of $G$. In this paper, we are
concerned by the following functional equation
$$\int_{G}f(xtyt^{-1})\,dt+\int_{G}f(xt\sigma(y)t^{-1})\,dt=2g(x)h(y), \quad
x, y \in G,$$ where $f, g, h \colonG \mapsto \mathbb{C}$, to be
determined, are complex continuous functions on $G$ such that $f$ is
central. This equation generalizes d'Alembert's and Wilson's
functional equations. We show that the solutions are expressed by
means of characters of irreducible, continuous and unitary
representations of the group $G$.

Combinatorics of Words and Semigroup Algebras Which Are Sums of Locally Nilpotent Subalgebras We construct new examples of non-nil algebras with any number of
generators, which are direct sums of two
locally nilpotent subalgebras. Like all previously known examples, our examples
are contracted semigroup algebras and the underlying semigroups are unions
of locally nilpotent subsemigroups.
In our constructions we make more
transparent
than in the past the close relationship between the considered problem
and combinatorics of words.

A Note on the Height of the Formal Brauer Group of a $K3$ Surface Using weighted Delsarte surfaces, we give examples of $K3$ surfaces
in positive characteristic whose formal Brauer groups have height
equal to $5$, $8$ or $9$. These are among the four values of the
height left open in the article of Yui \cite{Y}.

On Certain Finitely Generated Subgroups of Groups Which Split Define a group $G$ to be in the class $\mathcal{S}$ if for any
finitely generated subgroup $K$ of $G$ having the property that
there is a positive integer $n$ such that $g^n \in K$ for all
$g\in G$, $K$ has finite index in $G$. We show that a free
product with amalgamation $A*_C B$ and an $\HNN$ group $A *_C$ belong
to $\mathcal{S}$, if $C$ is in $\mathcal{S}$ and every subgroup of
$C$ is finitely generated.

The Transfer in the Invariant Theory of Modular Permutation Representations II In this note we show that the image of the transfer for permutation
representations of finite groups is generated by the transfers of
special monomials. This leads to a description of the image of the
transfer of the alternating groups. We also determine the height of
these ideals.

The Lehmer Polynomial and Pretzel Links In this paper we find a formula for the Alexander polynomial
$\Delta_{p_1,\dots,p_k} (x)$ of pretzel knots and links with
$(p_1,\dots,p_k, \nega 1)$ twists, where $k$ is odd and
$p_1,\dots,p_k$ are positive integers. The polynomial $\Delta_{2,3,7}
(x)$ is the well-known Lehmer polynomial, which is conjectured to have
the smallest Mahler measure among all monic integer polynomials. We
confirm that $\Delta_{2,3,7} (x)$ has the smallest Mahler measure among
the polynomials arising as $\Delta_{p_1,\dots,p_k} (x)$.

Images of mod $p$ Galois Representations Associated to Elliptic Curves We give an explicit recipe for the determination of the images
associated to the Galois action on $p$-torsion points of elliptic
curves. We present a table listing the image for all the elliptic
curves defined over $\QQ$ without complex multiplication with
conductor less than 200 and for each prime number~$p$.

Cyclic Subgroup Separability of HNN-Extensions with Cyclic Associated Subgroups We derive a necessary and sufficient condition for HNN-extensions
of cyclic subgroup separable groups with cyclic associated
subgroups to be cyclic subgroup separable. Applying this, we
explicitly characterize the residual finiteness and the cyclic
subgroup separability of HNN-extensions of abelian groups with
cyclic associated subgroups. We also consider these residual
properties of HNN-extensions of nilpotent groups with cyclic
associated subgroups.

Modular Vector Invariants of Cyclic Permutation Representations Vector invariants of finite groups (see the introduction for an
explanation of the terminology) have often been used to illustrate the
difficulties of invariant theory in the modular case: see,
\eg., \cite{Ber}, \cite{norway}, \cite{fossum}, \cite{MmeB},
\cite{poly} and \cite{survey}. It is therefore all the more
surprising that the {\it unpleasant} properties of these invariants
may be derived from two unexpected, and remarkable, {\it nice}
properties: namely for vector permutation invariants of the cyclic
group $\mathbb{Z}/p$ of prime order in characteristic $p$ the
image of the transfer homomorphism $\Tr^{\mathbb{Z}/p} \colon
\mathbb{F}[V] \lra \mathbb{F}[V]^{\mathbb{Z}/p}$ is a prime ideal,
and the quotient algebra $\mathbb{F}[V]^{\mathbb{Z}/p}/ \Im
(\Tr^{\mathbb{Z}/p})$ is a polynomial algebra on the top Chern
classes of the action.

A universal coefficient decomposition for subgroups induced by submodules of group algebras Dimension subgroups and Lie dimension subgroups are known to satisfy a
`universal coefficient decomposition', {\it i.e.} their value with respect to
an arbitrary coefficient ring can be described in terms of their values with
respect to the `universal' coefficient rings given by the cyclic groups of
infinite and prime power order. Here this fact is generalized to much more
general types of induced subgroups, notably covering Fox subgroups and
relative dimension subgroups with respect to group algebra filtrations
induced by arbitrary $N$-series, as well as certain common generalisations
of these which occur in the study of the former. This result relies on an
extension of the principal universal coefficient decomposition theorem on
polynomial ideals (due to Passi, Parmenter and Seghal), to all additive
subgroups of group rings. This is possible by using homological instead
of ring theoretical methods.
