Non-discrete frieze groups
The classification of Euclidean frieze groups into seven conjugacy classes is well known, and many articles on recreational mathematics contain frieze patterns that illustrate these classes. However, it is only possible to draw these patterns because the subgroup of translations that leave the pattern invariant is (by definition) cyclic, and hence discrete. In this paper we classify the conjugacy classes of frieze groups that contain a non-discrete subgroup of translations, and clearly these groups cannot be represented pictorially in any practical way. In addition, this discussion sheds light on why there are only seven conjugacy classes in the classical case.

Irreducible Tuples Without the Boundary Property
We examine spectral behavior of irreducible tuples which do not admit boundary property. In particular, we prove under some mild assumption that the spectral radius of such an $m$-tuple $(T_1, \dots, T_m)$ must be the operator norm of $T^*_1T_1 + \cdots + T^*_mT_m$. We use this simple observation to ensure boundary property for an irreducible, essentially normal joint $q$-isometry provided it is not a joint isometry. We further exhibit a family of reproducing Hilbert $\mathbb{C}[z_1, \dots, z_m]$-modules (of which the Drury-Arveson Hilbert module is a prototype) with the property that any two nested unitarily equivalent submodules are indeed equal.

Keywords:boundary representations, subnormal, joint p-isometry

$2$-Local Isometries on Spaces of Lipschitz Functions
Let $(X,d)$ be a metric space, and let $\mathop{\textrm{Lip}}(X)$ denote the Banach space of all scalar-valued bounded Lipschitz functions $f$ on $X$ endowed with one of the natural norms $ \| f\| =\max \{\| f\| _\infty ,L(f)\}$ or $\|f\| =\| f\| _\infty +L(f), $ where $L(f)$ is the Lipschitz constant of $f.$ It is said that the isometry group of $\mathop{\textrm{Lip}}(X)$ is canonical if every surjective linear isometry of $\mathop{\textrm{Lip}}(X) $ is induced by a surjective isometry of $X$. In this paper we prove that if $X$ is bounded separable and the isometry group of $\mathop{\textrm{Lip}}(X)$ is canonical, then every $2$-local isometry of $\mathop{\textrm{Lip}}(X)$ is a surjective linear isometry. Furthermore, we give a complete description of all $2$-local isometries of $\mathop{\textrm{Lip}}(X)$ when $X$ is bounded.

Projections in the Convex Hull of Surjective Isometries
We characterize those linear projections represented as a convex combination of two surjective isometries on standard Banach spaces of continuous functions with values in a strictly convex Banach space.

Keywords:isometry, convex combination of isometries, generalized bi-circular projections
Categories:47A65, 47B15, 47B37
