A Fixed Point Theorem and the Existence of a Haar Measure for Hypergroups Satisfying Conditions Related to Amenability
In this paper we present a fixed point property for amenable
hypergroups which is analogous to Rickert's fixed point theorem
for semigroups. It equates the existence of a left invariant
mean on the space of weakly right uniformly continuous functions
to the existence of a fixed point for any action of the hypergroup.
Using this fixed point property, a certain class of hypergroups
are shown to have a left Haar measure.

Addendum to ``Limit Sets of Typical Homeomorphisms''
Given an integer $n \geq 3$,
a metrizable compact topological $n$manifold $X$ with boundary,
and a finite positive Borel measure $\mu$ on $X$,
we prove that for the typical homeomorphism $f : X \to X$,
it is true that for $\mu$almost every point $x$ in $X$ the restriction of
$f$ (respectively of $f^{1}$) to the omega limit set $\omega(f,x)$
(respectively to the alpha limit set $\alpha(f,x)$) is topologically
conjugate to the universal odometer.

A Generalization of a Theorem of Boyd and Lawton
The Mahler measure of a nonzero $n$variable polynomial $P$ is the integral of
$\logP$ on the unit $n$torus. A result of Boyd and Lawton says that
the Mahler measure of a multivariate polynomial is the limit of Mahler
measures of univariate polynomials. We prove the analogous
result for different extensions of Mahler measure such as generalized
Mahler measure (integrating the maximum of $\logP$ for possibly
different $P$'s),
multiple Mahler measure (involving products of $\logP$ for possibly
different $P$'s), and higher Mahler measure (involving $\log^kP$).

Application of Measure of Noncompactness to Infinite Systems of Differential Equations
In this paper we determine the Hausdorff measure of noncompactness on
the sequence space $n(\phi)$ of W. L. C. Sargent.
Further we apply
the technique of measures of noncompactness to the theory of infinite
systems of differential equations in the Banach sequence spaces
$n(\phi)$ and $m(\phi)$. Our aim is to present some existence results
for infinite systems of differential equations formulated with the help
of measures of noncompactness.

Marcinkiewicz Commutators with Lipschitz Functions in Nonhomogeneous Spaces
Under the assumption that $\mu$ is a nondoubling
measure, we study certain commutators generated by the
Lipschitz function and the Marcinkiewicz integral whose kernel
satisfies a HÃ¶rmandertype condition. We establish the boundedness
of these commutators on the Lebesgue spaces, Lipschitz spaces, and
Hardy spaces. Our results are extensions of known theorems in the
doubling case.

The Group $\operatorname{Aut}(\mu)$ is Roelcke Precompact
Following a similar result of Uspenskij on the unitary group of a
separable Hilbert space, we show that, with respect to the lower (or
Roelcke) uniform structure, the Polish group $G=
\operatorname{Aut}(\mu)$ of automorphisms of an atomless standard
Borel probability space $(X,\mu)$ is precompact. We identify the
corresponding compactification as the space of Markov operators on
$L_2(\mu)$ and deduce that the algebra of right and left uniformly
continuous functions, the algebra of weakly almost periodic functions,
and the algebra of Hilbert functions on $G$, i.e., functions on
$G$ arising from unitary representations, all coincide. Again
following Uspenskij, we also conclude that $G$ is totally minimal.

each point of $\omega(f,x)$ has a dense orbit in $\omega(f,x)$, $f$ is

A Characterization of Bergman Spaces on the Unit Ball of ${\mathbb C}^n$. II
It has been shown that a holomorphic function $f$ in the unit ball
$\mathbb{B}_n$ of ${\mathbb C}_n$ belongs to the weighted Bergman space $A^p_\alpha$,
$p>n+1+\alpha$, if and only if the function
$f(z)f(w)/1\langle z,w\rangle$ is in $L^p(\mathbb{B}_n\times\mathbb{B}_n,dv_\beta
\times dv_\beta)$, where $\beta=(p+\alphan1)/2$ and $dv_\beta(z)=
(1z^2)^\beta\,dv(z)$. In this paper
we consider the range $0 n+1+\alpha$ is
particularly interesting.

The Infimum in the Metric Mahler Measure
Dubickas and Smyth defined the metric Mahler measure on the
multiplicative group of nonzero algebraic numbers.
The definition involves taking an infimum over representations
of an algebraic number $\alpha$ by other
algebraic numbers. We verify their conjecture that the
infimum in its definition is always achieved, and we establish its
analog for the ultrametric Mahler measure.

Measurements and $G_\delta$Subsets of Domains
In this paper we study domains, Scott
domains, and the existence of measurements. We
use a space created by D.~K. Burke to show that
there is a Scott domain $P$ for which $\max(P)$ is
a $G_\delta$subset of $P$ and yet no measurement
$\mu$ on $P$ has $\ker(\mu) = \max(P)$. We also
correct a mistake in the literature asserting that
$[0, \omega_1)$ is a space of this type. We show
that if $P$ is a Scott domain and $X \subseteq
\max(P)$ is a $G_\delta$subset of $P$, then $X$
has a $G_\delta$diagonal and is weakly
developable. We show that if $X \subseteq
\max(P)$ is a $G_\delta$subset of $P$, where
$P$ is a domain but perhaps not a Scott domain,
then $X$ is domainrepresentable,
firstcountable, and is the union of dense,
completely metrizable subspaces. We also
show that there is a domain $P$ such that
$\max(P)$ is the usual space of countable
ordinals and is a $G_\delta$subset of $P$ in
the Scott topology. Finally we show that the
kernel of a measurement on a Scott domain can
consistently be a normal, separable,
nonmetrizable Moore space.

Homotopy and the KestelmanBorweinDitor Theorem
The KestelmanBorweinDitor Theorem, on embedding a null sequence by
translation in (measure/category) ``large'' sets has two generalizations.
Miller replaces the translated sequence by a ``sequence homotopic
to the identity''. The authors, in a previous paper, replace points by functions:
a uniform functional null sequence replaces the null sequence, and
translation receives a functional form. We give a unified approach to
results of this kind. In particular, we show that (i) Miller's homotopy
version follows from the functional version, and (ii) the pointwise instance
of the functional version follows from Miller's homotopy version.

Every Real Algebraic Integer Is a Difference of Two Mahler Measures
We prove that every real
algebraic integer $\alpha$ is expressible by a
difference of two Mahler measures of integer polynomials.
Moreover, these polynomials can be chosen in such a way that they
both have the same degree as that of $\alpha$, say
$d$, one of these two polynomials is irreducible and
another has an irreducible factor of degree $d$, so
that $\alpha=M(P)bM(Q)$ with irreducible polynomials
$P, Q\in \mathbb Z[X]$ of degree $d$ and a
positive integer $b$. Finally, if $d \leqslant 3$, then one can take $b=1$.

Angle Measures and Bisectors in Minkowski Planes
\begin{abstract}
We prove that a Minkowski plane is Euclidean if and only if Busemann's or
Glogovskij's definitions
of angular bisectors coincide
with a bisector defined by an angular measure in the sense of Brass.
In addition, bisectors defined by the area measure coincide with bisectors
defined by the circumference (arc length) measure
if and only if the unit circle is an
equiframed curve.

BakerType Estimates for Linear Forms in the Values of $q$Series
We obtain lower estimates for the absolute values
of linear forms of the values of generalized Heine
series at nonzero points of an imaginary quadratic field~$\II$,
in particular of the values of $q$exponential function.
These estimates depend on the individual coefficients,
not only on the maximum of their absolute values.
The proof uses a variant of classical Siegel's method
applied to a system of functional Poincar\'etype equations
and the connection between the solutions of these functional
equations and the generalized Heine series.

Potential Theory of the FarthestPoint Distance Function
We study the farthestpoint 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~$E$.

described in terms of the minimal polynomials.
