|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 computer-aided. 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.
Keywords:clique complex, order complex, homology, torsion, minimal model

|Characterizations of Model Manifolds by Means of Certain Differential Systems|
We prove metric rigidity for complete manifolds supporting solutions of certain second order differential systems, thus extending classical works on a characterization of space-forms. Along the way, we also discover new characterizations of space-forms. We next generalize results concerning metric rigidity via equations involving vector fields.
Keywords:metric rigidity, model manifolds, Obata's type theorems

|Stepping-Stone Model with Circular Brownian Migration |
In this paper we consider the stepping-stone model on a circle with circular Brownian migration. We first point out a connection between Arratia flow on the circle and the marginal distribution of this model. We then give a new representation for the stepping-stone model using Arratia flow and circular coalescing Brownian motion. Such a representation enables us to carry out some explicit computations. In particular, we find the distribution for the first time when there is only one type left across the circle.
Keywords:stepping-stone model, circular coalescing Brownian motion, Arratia flow, duality, entrance law

|LS-catÃ©gorie algÃ©brique et attachement de cellules |
Nous montrons que la A-cat\'egorie d'un espace simplement connexe de type fini est inf\'erieure ou \'egale \`a $n$ si et seulement si son mod\`ele d'Adams-Hilton est un r\'etracte homotopique d'une alg\`ebre diff\'erentielle \`a $n$ \'etages. Nous en d\'eduisons que l'invariant $\Acat$ augmente au plus de 1 lors de l'attachement d'une cellule \`a un espace. We show that the A-category of a simply connected space of finite type is less than or equal to $n$ if and only if its Adams-Hilton model is a homotopy retract of an $n$-stage differential algebra. We deduce from this that the invariant $\Acat$ increases by at most 1 when a cell is attached to a space.
Keywords:LS-category, strong category, Adams-Hilton models, cell attachments
