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 $X$.

Rotors in Khovanov Homology
Anstee, Przytycki, and Rolfsen introduced the idea of rotants,
pairs of links related by a generalised form of link mutation.
We exhibit infinitely many pairs of rotants which can be distinguished
by Khovanov homology, but not by the Jones polynomial.

Vanishing of Massey products and Brauer groups
Let $p$ be a prime number and $F$ a field containing a root of
unity of order $p$.
We relate recent results on vanishing of triple Massey products
in the mod$p$ Galois cohomology of $F$,
due to Hopkins, Wickelgren, MinÃ¡Ä, and TÃ¢n, to classical
results in the theory of central simple algebras.
For global fields, we prove a stronger form of the vanishing
property.

$L$functions for Quadratic Characters and Annihilation of Motivic Cohomology Groups
Let $n$ be a positive even integer, and let $F$ be a totally real
number field and $L$ be an abelian Galois extension which is totally
real or CM.
Fix a finite set $S$ of primes of $F$ containing the infinite primes
and all those which ramify in
$L$, and let $S_L$ denote the primes of $L$ lying above those in
$S$. Then $\mathcal{O}_L^S$ denotes the ring of $S_L$integers of $L$.
Suppose that $\psi$ is a quadratic character of the Galois group of
$L$ over $F$. Under the assumption of the motivic Lichtenbaum
conjecture, we obtain a nontrivial annihilator of the motivic
cohomology group
$H_\mathcal{M}^2(\mathcal{O}_L^S,\mathbb{Z}(n))$ from the lead term of the Taylor series for the
$S$modified Artin $L$function $L_{L/F}^S(s,\psi)$ at $s=1n$.

The Equivariant Cohomology Rings of Peterson Varieties in All Lie
Types
Let $G$ be a complex semisimple linear algebraic group and let
$Pet$ be the associated Peterson variety in the flag
variety $G/B$.
The main theorem of this note gives an efficient presentation
of the equivariant cohomology ring $H^*_S(Pet)$ of the
Peterson variety as a quotient of a polynomial ring by an ideal
$J$ generated by quadratic polynomials, in the spirit of the
Borel presentation of the cohomology of the flag variety. Here
the group $S \cong \mathbb{C}^*$ is a certain subgroup of a maximal
torus $T$ of $G$.
Our description of the ideal $J$ uses the Cartan matrix and is
uniform across Lie types. In our arguments we use the Monk formula
and Giambelli formula for the equivariant cohomology rings of
Peterson varieties for all Lie types, as obtained in the work
of Drellich. Our result generalizes a previous theorem of FukukawaHaradaMasuda,
which was only for Lie type $A$.

Small Flag Complexes with Torsion
We classify flag complexes on at most $12$ vertices with torsion in
the first homology group. The result is moderately computeraided.
As a consequence we confirm a folklore conjecture that the smallest
poset whose order complex is homotopy equivalent to the real
projective plane (and also the smallest poset with torsion in the
first homology group) has exactly $13$ elements.

Alexandroff Manifolds and Homogeneous Continua
ny homogeneous,
metric $ANR$continuum is a $V^n_G$continuum provided $\dim_GX=n\geq
1$ and $\check{H}^n(X;G)\neq 0$, where $G$ is a principal ideal
domain.
This implies that any homogeneous $n$dimensional metric $ANR$continuum is a $V^n$continuum in the sense of Alexandroff.
We also prove that any finitedimensional homogeneous metric continuum
$X$, satisfying $\check{H}^n(X;G)\neq 0$ for some group $G$ and $n\geq
1$, cannot be separated by
a compactum $K$ with $\check{H}^{n1}(K;G)=0$ and $\dim_G K\leq
n1$. This provides a partial answer to a question of
KallipolitiPapasoglu
whether any twodimensional homogeneous Peano continuum cannot be separated by arcs.

On the Radius of Comparison of a Commutative C*algebra
Let $X$ be a compact metric space. A lower bound for the radius of
comparison of the C*algebra $\operatorname{C}(X)$ is given in terms of
$\operatorname{dim}_{\mathbb{Q}} X$, where $\operatorname{dim}_{\mathbb{Q}} X $ is
the cohomological dimension with rational coefficients. If
$\operatorname{dim}_{\mathbb{Q}} X =\operatorname{dim} X=d$, then the
radius of comparison of the C*algebra $\operatorname{C}(X)$ is $\max\{0, (d1)/21\}$ if $d$ is odd, and must be either $d/21$ or $d/22$ if $d$ is even (the possibility of $d/21$ does occur, but we do not know if the possibility of $d/22$ also can occur).

Freyd's Generating Hypothesis for Groups with Periodic Cohomology
Let $G$ be a finite group, and let $k$ be a field whose characteristic $p$
divides
the order of $G$.
Freyd's generating hypothesis for the stable module category of
$G$ is the statement that a map between finitedimensional
$kG$modules in the thick subcategory generated by $k$ factors through a
projective if the induced map on Tate cohomology is trivial. We show that if
$G$
has periodic cohomology, then the generating hypothesis holds if and only if
the Sylow
$p$subgroup of $G$ is $C_2$ or $C_3$. We also give some other conditions
that are equivalent to the GH
for groups with periodic cohomology.

Artinianness of Certain Graded Local Cohomology Modules
We show that if
$R=\bigoplus_{n\in\mathbb{N}_0}R_n$ is a Noetherian homogeneous ring
with local base ring $(R_0,\mathfrak{m}_0)$, irrelevant ideal $R_+$, and
$M$ a finitely generated graded $R$module, then
$H_{\mathfrak{m}_0R}^j(H_{R_+}^t(M))$ is Artinian for $j=0,1$ where
$t=\inf\{i\in{\mathbb{N}_0}: H_{R_+}^i(M)$ is not finitely
generated $\}$. Also, we prove that if $\operatorname{cd}(R_+,M)=2$, then for
each $i\in\mathbb{N}_0$, $H_{\mathfrak{m}_0R}^i(H_{R_+}^2(M))$ is
Artinian if and only if $H_{\mathfrak{m}_0R}^{i+2}(H_{R_+}^1(M))$ is
Artinian, where $\operatorname{cd}(R_+,M)$ is the cohomological dimension of $M$
with respect to $R_+$. This improves some results of R. Sazeedeh.

Artinian and NonArtinian Local Cohomology Modules
Let $M$ be a finite module over a commutative noetherian ring $R$.
For ideals $\mathfrak{a}$ and $\mathfrak{b}$ of $R$, the relations between
cohomological dimensions of $M$ with respect to $\mathfrak{a},
\mathfrak{b}$,
$\mathfrak{a}\cap\mathfrak{b}$ and $\mathfrak{a}+ \mathfrak{b}$ are studied. When $R$ is local, it is
shown that $M$ is generalized CohenMacaulay if there exists an
ideal $\mathfrak{a}$ such that all local cohomology modules of $M$ with
respect to $\mathfrak{a}$ have finite lengths. Also, when $r$ is an integer
such that $0\leq r< \dim_R(M)$, any maximal element $\mathfrak{q}$ of the
nonempty set of ideals $\{\mathfrak{a} : \textrm{H}_\mathfrak{a}^i(M)
$ is not artinian for
some $ i, i\geq r \}$ is a prime ideal, and all Bass numbers
of $\textrm{H}_\mathfrak{q}^i(M)$ are finite for all $i\geq r$.

On the Endomorphism Rings of Local Cohomology Modules
Let $R$ be a commutative Noetherian ring and $\mathfrak{a}$ a proper ideal
of $R$. We show that if $n:=\operatorname{grade}_R\mathfrak{a}$, then
$\operatorname{End}_R(H^n_\mathfrak{a}(R))\cong \operatorname{Ext}_R^n(H^n_\mathfrak{a}(R),R)$. We also
prove that, for a nonnegative integer $n$ such that
$H^i_\mathfrak{a}(R)=0$ for every $i\neq n$, if $\operatorname{Ext}_R^i(R_z,R)=0$ for
all $i >0$ and $z \in \mathfrak{a}$, then
$\operatorname{End}_R(H^n_\mathfrak{a}(R))$ is a homomorphic
image of $R$, where $R_z$ is the ring of fractions of $R$ with
respect to a multiplicatively closed subset $\{z^j \mid j \geqslant
0 \}$ of $R$. Moreover, if $\operatorname{Hom}_R(R_z,R)=0$ for all $z
\in \mathfrak{a}$,
then $\mu_{H^n_\mathfrak{a}(R)}$ is an isomorphism, where $\mu_{H^n_\mathfrak{a}(R)}$
is the canonical ring homomorphism $R \rightarrow \operatorname{End}_R(H^n_\mathfrak{a}(R))$.

A Result in Surgery Theory
We study the topological $4$dimensional surgery problem
for a closed connected orientable
topological $4$manifold $X$ with vanishing
second homotopy and $\pi_1(X)\cong A * F(r)$, where $A$ has
one end and $F(r)$ is the free group of rank $r\ge 1$.
Our result is related to a theorem of Krushkal and Lee, and
depends on the validity of the Novikov conjecture for
such fundamental groups.

Homotopy Formulas for Cyclic Groups Acting on Rings
The positive cohomology groups of a finite group acting on a ring
vanish when the ring has a norm one element. In this note we give
explicit homotopies on the level of cochains when the group is cyclic,
which allows us to express any cocycle of a cyclic group
as the coboundary of an explicit cochain.
The formulas in this note are closely related to the effective problems considered in previous joint work
with Eli Aljadeff.

Exotic Torsion, Frobenius Splitting and the Slope Spectral Sequence
In this paper we show that any Frobenius split, smooth, projective
threefold over a perfect field of characteristic $p>0$ is
HodgeWitt. This is proved by generalizing to the case of
threefolds a wellknown criterion due to N.~Nygaard for surfaces to be HodgeWitt.
We also show that the second crystalline
cohomology of any smooth, projective Frobenius split variety does
not have any exotic torsion. In the last two sections we include
some applications.

Simplicial Cohomology of Some Semigroup Algebras
In this paper, we investigate the higher simplicial cohomology
groups of the convolution algebra $\ell^1(S)$ for various semigroups
$S$. The classes of semigroups considered are semilattices, Clifford
semigroups, regular Rees semigroups and the additive semigroups of
integers greater than $a$ for some integer $a$. Our results are of
two types: in some cases, we show that some cohomology groups are $0$,
while in some other cases, we show that some cohomology groups are
Banach spaces.

uniformly approximate $g$ on $K$ by rational mappings defined from

Additive RiemannHilbert 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 CauchyRiemann 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
$\mathbb{CP}^1$.

Vector Fields and the Cohomology Ring of Toric Varieties
Let $X$ be a smooth complex
projective variety with a holomorphic vector field with isolated
zero set $Z$. From the results of Carrell and Lieberman
there exists a filtration
$F_0 \subset F_1 \subset \cdots$ of $A(Z)$, the ring of
$\c$valued functions on $Z$, such that $\Gr A(Z) \cong H^*(X,
\c)$ as graded algebras. In this note, for a smooth projective
toric variety and a vector field generated by the action of a
$1$parameter subgroup of the torus, we work out this filtration.
Our main result is an explicit connection between this filtration
and the polytope algebra of $X$.
