Levi's problem for pseudoconvex homogeneous manifolds
Suppose $G$ is a connected complex Lie group and $H$ is a closed complex subgroup. Then there exists a closed complex subgroup $J$ of $G$ containing $H$ such that the fibration $\pi:G/H \to G/J$ is the holomorphic reduction of $G/H$, i.e., $G/J$ is holomorphically separable and ${\mathcal O}(G/H) \cong \pi^*{\mathcal O}(G/J)$. In this paper we prove that if $G/H$ is pseudoconvex, i.e., if $G/H$ admits a continuous plurisubharmonic exhaustion function, then $G/J$ is Stein and $J/H$ has no non--constant holomorphic functions.

The Dirichlet Problem for the Slab with Entire Data and a Difference Equation for Harmonic Functions
It is shown that the Dirichlet problem for the slab $(a,b) \times \mathbb{R}^{d}$ with entire boundary data has an entire solution. The proof is based on a generalized Schwarz reflection principle. Moreover, it is shown that for a given entire harmonic function $g$ the inhomogeneous difference equation $h ( t+1,y) -h (t,y) =g ( t,y)$ has an entire harmonic solution $h$.

Keywords:reflection principle, entire harmonic function, analytic continuation

Non-extendable Zero Sets of Harmonic and Holomorphic Functions
In this paper we study the zero sets of harmonic functions on open sets in $\mathbb{R}^N$ and holomorphic functions on open sets in $\mathbb{C}^N.$ We show that the non-extendability of such zero sets is a generic phenomenon.

Sharp Inequalities for Differentially Subordinate Harmonic Functions and Martingales
We determine the best constants $C_{p,\infty}$ and $C_{1,p}$, $1 < p < \infty$, for which the following holds. If $u$, $v$ are orthogonal harmonic functions on a Euclidean domain such that $v$ is differentially subordinate to $u$, then $$ \|v\|_p \leq C_{p,\infty} \|u\|_\infty,\quad \|v\|_1 \leq C_{1,p} \|u\|_p. $$ In particular, the inequalities are still sharp for the conjugate harmonic functions on the unit disc of $\mathbb R^2$. Sharp probabilistic versions of these estimates are also studied. As an application, we establish a sharp version of the classical logarithmic inequality of Zygmund.

Keywords: harmonic function, conjugate harmonic functions, orthogonal harmonic functions, martingale, orthogonal martingales, norm inequality, optimal stopping problem

Inequalities for Eigenvalues of a General Clamped Plate Problem
Let $D$ be a connected bounded domain in $\mathbb{R}^n$. Let $0<\mu_1\leq\mu_2\leq\dots\leq\mu_k\leq\cdots$ be the eigenvalues of the following Dirichlet problem: $$ \begin{cases}\Delta^2u(x)+V(x)u(x)=\mu\rho(x)u(x),\quad x\in D u|_{\partial D}=\frac{\partial u}{\partial n}|_{\partial D}=0, \end{cases} $$ where $V(x)$ is a nonnegative potential, and $\rho(x)\in C(\bar{D})$ is positive. We prove the following inequalities: $$\mu_{k+1}\leq\frac{1}{k}\sum_{i=1}^k\mu_i+\Bigl[\frac{8(n+2)}{n^2}\Bigl(\frac{\rho_{\max}} {\rho_{\min}}\Bigr)^2\Bigr]^{1/2}\times \frac{1}{k}\sum_{i=1}^k[\mu_i(\mu_{k+1}-\mu_i)]^{1/2}, $$ $$\frac{n^2k^2}{8(n+2)}\leq \Bigl(\frac{\rho_{\max}}{\rho_{\min}}\Bigr)^2\Bigl[\sum_{i=1}^k\frac{\mu_i^{1/2}}{\mu_{k+1}-\mu_i}\Bigr] \times\sum_{i=1}^k\mu_i^{1/2}. $$

Hermitian Harmonic Maps into Convex Balls
In this paper, we consider Hermitian harmonic maps from Hermitian manifolds into convex balls. We prove that there exist no non-trivial Hermitian harmonic maps from closed Hermitian manifolds into convex balls, and we use the heat flow method to solve the Dirichlet problem for Hermitian harmonic maps when the domain is a compact Hermitian manifold with non-empty boundary.

Potential Theory of the Farthest-Point Distance Function
We study the farthest-point distance function, which measures the distance from $z \in \mathbb{C}$ to the farthest point or points of a given compact set $E$ in the plane. The logarithm of this distance is subharmonic as a function of $z$, and equals the logarithmic potential of a unique probability measure with unbounded support. This measure $\sigma_E$ has many interesting properties that reflect the topology and geometry of the compact set $E$. We prove $\sigma_E(E) \leq \frac12$ for polygons inscribed in a circle, with equality if and only if $E$ is a regular $n$-gon for some odd $n$. Also we show $\sigma_E(E) = \frac12$ for smooth convex sets of constant width. We conjecture $\sigma_E(E) \leq \frac12$ for all~$E$.

Group Cohomology and $L^p$-Cohomology of Finitely Generated Groups
Let $G$ be a finitely generated, infinite group, let $p>1$, and let $L^p(G)$ denote the Banach space $\{ \sum_{x\in G} a_xx \mid \sum_{x\in G} |a_x |^p < \infty \}$. In this paper we will study the first cohomology group of $G$ with coefficients in $L^p(G)$, and the first reduced $L^p$-cohomology space of $G$. Most of our results will be for a class of groups that contains all finitely generated, infinite nilpotent groups.

Properties of the $\mathcal{M}$-Harmonic Conjugate Operator
We define the $\mathcal{M}$-harmonic conjugate operator $K$ and prove that it is bounded on the nonisotropic Lipschitz space and on $\BMO$. Then we show $K$ maps Dini functions into the space of continuous functions on the unit sphere. We also prove the boundedness and compactness properties of $\mathcal{M}$-harmonic conjugate operator with $L^p$ symbol.

Harmonic Polynomials Associated With Reflection Groups
We extend Maxwell's representation of harmonic polynomials to $h$-harmonics associated to a reflection invariant weight function $h_k$. Let $\CD_i$, $1\le i \le d$, be Dunkl's operators associated with a reflection group. For any homogeneous polynomial $P$ of degree $n$, we prove the polynomial $|\xb|^{2 \gamma +d-2+2n}P(\CD)\{1/|\xb|^{2 \gamma +d-2}\}$ is a $h$-harmonic polynomial of degree $n$, where $\gamma = \sum k_i$ and $\CD=(\CD_1,\ldots,\CD_d)$. The construction yields a basis for $h$-harmonics. We also discuss self-adjoint operators acting on the space of $h$-harmonics.
