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.

On the Classification of Rational Quantum Tori and the Structure of Their Automorphism Groups An $n$dimensional quantum torus is a twisted group algebra of the
group $\Z^n$. It is called rational if all invertible commutators are roots
of unity. In the present note we describe a normal form for rational
$n$dimensional quantum
tori over any field. Moreover, we show that for
$n = 2$ the natural exact sequence
describing the automorphism group of the quantum torus splits over any
field.

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.

On the Lack of Inverses to $C^*$Extensions Related to Property T Groups Using ideas of S. Wassermann on nonexact $C^*$algebras and
property T groups, we show that one of his examples of noninvertible
$C^*$extensions is not semiinvertible. To prove this, we
show that a certain element vanishes in the asymptotic tensor
product. We also show that a modification of the example gives
a $C^*$extension which is not even invertible up to homotopy.

On the Inequality for Volume and Minkowskian Thickness Given a centrally symmetric convex body $B$ in $\E^d,$ we denote
by $\M^d(B)$ the Minkowski space ({\em i.e.,} finite dimensional
Banach space) with unit ball $B.$ Let $K$ be an arbitrary convex
body in $\M^d(B).$ The relationship between volume $V(K)$ and the
Minkowskian thickness ($=$ minimal width) $\thns_B(K)$ of $K$ can
naturally be given by the sharp geometric inequality $V(K) \ge
\alpha(B) \cdot \thns_B(K)^d,$ where $\alpha(B)>0.$ As a simple
corollary of the RogersShephard inequality we obtain that
$\binom{2d}{d}{}^{1} \le \alpha(B)/V(B) \le 2^{d}$ with equality
on the left attained if and only if $B$ is the difference body of
a simplex and on the right if $B$ is a crosspolytope. The main
result of this paper is that for $d=2$ the equality on the right
implies that $B$ is a parallelogram. The obtained results yield
the sharp upper bound for the modified BanachMazur distance to the
regular hexagon.

On Suslinian Continua A continuum is said to be Suslinian if it does not contain uncountably
many mutually exclusive nondegenerate subcontinua. We prove that
Suslinian continua are perfectly normal and rimmetrizable. Locally
connected Suslinian continua have weight at most $\omega_1$ and under
appropriate settheoretic conditions are metrizable. Nonseparable
locally connected Suslinian continua are rimfinite on some open set.

Necessary and Sufficient Conditions for the Central Norm to Equal $2^h$ in the Simple Continued Fraction Expansion of $\sqrt{2^hc}$ for Any Odd $c>1$ 
Necessary and Sufficient Conditions for the Central Norm to Equal $2^h$ in the Simple Continued Fraction Expansion of $\sqrt{2^hc}$ for Any Odd $c>1$ We look at the simple continued fraction expansion of $\sqrt{D}$
for any $D=2^hc $ where $c>1$ is odd with a goal of
determining necessary and
sufficient conditions for the central norm (as determined by
the infrastructure of the underlying real quadratic order therein) to be
$2^h$. At the end of the paper, we also address the case where $D=c$
is odd and the central norm of $\sqrt{D}$ is equal to $2$.

Une classe d'hamiltoniens polynomiaux isochrones Soit $H_0 = \frac{x^2+y^2}{2}$ un hamiltonien isochrone du plan
$\Rset^2$. On met en \'evidence une classe d'hamiltoniens isochrones
qui sont des perturbations polynomiales de $H_0$. On obtient alors
une condition n\'ecessaire d'isochronisme, et un crit\`ere de choix
pour les hamiltoniens isochrones. On voit ce r\'esultat comme \'etant
une g\'en\'eralisation du caract\`ere isochrone des perturbations
hamiltoniennes homog\`enes consid\'er\'ees dans [L], [P], [S].
Let $H_0 = \frac{x^2+y^2}{2}$ be an isochronous Hamiltonian of the
plane $\Rset^2$. We obtain a necessary condition for a system to be
isochronous. We can think of this result as a generalization of the
isochronous behaviour of the homogeneous polynomial perturbation of
the Hamiltonian $H_0$ considered in [L], [P], [S].

On Locating Isometric $\ell_{1}^{(n)}$ Motivated by a question of Per Enflo, we develop a hypercube criterion
for locating linear isometric copies of $\lone$ in an arbitrary real
normed space $X$.
The said criterion involves finding $2^{n}$ points in $X$ that satisfy
one metric equality. This contrasts nicely to the standard classical
criterion wherein one seeks $n$ points that satisfy $2^{n1}$ metric
equalities.

Weighted Mean Operators on $l_p$ The weighted mean matrix $M_a$ is the triangular matrix $\{a_k/A_n\}$,
where $a_n > 0$ and $A_n := a_1 + a_2 + \cdots + a_n$. It is proved
that, subject to $n^c a_n$ being eventually monotonic for each
constant $c$ and to the existence of $\alpha := \lim
\frac{A_n}{na_n}$, $M_a \in B(l_p)$ for $1 < p < \infty$ if and only
if $\alpha < p$.

Points of Weak$^\ast$Norm Continuity in the Unit Ball of the Space $\WC(K,X)^\ast$ For a compact Hausdorff space with a dense set of isolated points, we
give a complete description of points of weak$^\ast$norm continuity
in the dual unit ball of the space of Banach space valued functions
that are continuous when the range has the weak topology. As an
application we give a complete description of points of weaknorm
continuity of the unit ball of the space of vector measures when
the underlying Banach space has the RadonNikodym property.

Some norm inequalities for operators Let $A_i$, $B_i$ and $X_i$ $(i=1, 2, \dots, n)$ be operators on a
separable Hilbert space. It is shown that if $f$ and $g$ are
nonnegative continuous functions on $[0,\infty)$ which satisfy the
relation $f(t)g(t) =t$ for all $t$ in $[0,\infty)$, then
$$
\Biglvert \,\Bigl\sum^n_{i=1} A^*_i X_i B_i \Bigr^r \,\Bigrvert^2
\leq \Biglvert \Bigl( \sum^n_{i=1} A^*_i f (X^*_i)^2 A_i \Bigr)^r
\Bigrvert \, \Biglvert \Bigl( \sum^n_{i=1} B^*_i g (X_i)^2 B_i
\Bigr)^r \Bigrvert
$$
for every $r>0$ and for every unitarily invariant norm. This result
improves some known CauchySchwarz type inequalities. Norm
inequalities related to the arithmeticgeometric mean inequality and
the classical Heinz inequalities are also obtained.
