Some normal numbers generated by arithmetic functions Let $g \geq 2$. A real number is said to be $g$-normal if its base $g$ expansion contains every finite sequence of digits with the expected limiting frequency. Let $\phi$ denote Euler's totient function, let $\sigma$ be the sum-of-divisors function, and let $\lambda$ be Carmichael's lambda-function. We show that if $f$ is any function formed by composing $\phi$, $\sigma$, or $\lambda$, then the number
\[ 0. f(1) f(2) f(3) \dots \]
obtained by concatenating the base $g$ digits of successive $f$-values is $g$-normal. We also prove the same result if the inputs $1, 2, 3, \dots$ are replaced with the primes $2, 3, 5, \dots$. The proof is an adaptation of a method introduced by Copeland and ErdÅs in 1946 to prove the $10$-normality of $0.235711131719\ldots$.

Irreducible Tuples without 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.

On the Hereditary Paracompactness of Locally Compact, Hereditarily Normal Spaces We establish that if it is consistent that there is a
supercompact cardinal, then it is consistent that every locally
compact, hereditarily normal space which does not include a perfect
pre-image of $\omega_1$ is hereditarily paracompact.

Dimension Functions of Self-Affine Scaling Sets In this paper, the dimension function of a self-affine generalized scaling set associated with an $n\times n$ integral expansive dilation $A$ is studied. More specifically, we consider the dimension function of an $A$-dilation generalized scaling set $K$ assuming that $K$ is a self-affine tile satisfying $BK = (K+d_1) \cup (K+d_2)$, where $B=A^t$, $A$ is an $n\times n$ integral expansive matrix with $\lvert \det A\rvert=2$, and $d_1,d_2\in\mathbb{R}^n$. We show that the dimension function of $K$ must be constant if either $n=1$ or $2$ or one of the digits is $0$, and that it is bounded by $2\lvert K\rvert$ for any $n$.

On Certain Multivariable Subnormal Weighted Shifts and their Duals To every subnormal $m$-variable weighted shift $S$ (with bounded
positive weights) corresponds a positive Reinhardt measure $\mu$
supported on a compact Reinhardt subset of $\mathbb C^m$. We show that, for
$m \geq 2$, the dimensions of the $1$-st cohomology vector spaces
associated with the Koszul complexes of $S$ and its dual ${\tilde S}$
are different if a certain radial function happens to be integrable
with respect to $\mu$ (which is indeed the case with many classical
examples). In particular, $S$ cannot in that case be similar to
${\tilde S}$. We next prove that, for $m \geq 2$, a Fredholm subnormal
$m$-variable weighted shift $S$ cannot be similar to its dual.

The Secondary Chern-Euler Class for a General Submanifold We define and study the secondary Chern-Euler class for a general submanifold of a Riemannian manifold. Using this class, we define and study the index for a vector field with non-isolated singularities on a submanifold. As an application, we give conceptual proofs of a result of Chern.

A Note about Analytic Solvability of Complex Planar Vector Fields with Degeneracies This paper deals with the analytic solvability of a special class of
complex vector fields defined on the real plane, where they are
tangent to
a closed real curve, while off the real curve, they are elliptic.

Generalized D-symmetric Operators II
Let $H$ be a separable,
infinite-dimensional, complex Hilbert space and let $A, B\in{\mathcal L
}(H)$, where ${\mathcal L}(H)$ is the algebra of all bounded linear
operators on $H$. Let $\delta_{AB}\colon {\mathcal L}(H)\rightarrow {\mathcal
L}(H)$ denote the generalized derivation $\delta_{AB}(X)=AX-XB$.
This note will initiate a study on the class of pairs $(A,B)$ such
that $\overline{{\mathcal R}(\delta_{AB})}= \overline{{\mathcal
R}(\delta_{A^{\ast}B^{\ast}})}$.

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.

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 rim-metrizable. Locally
connected Suslinian continua have weight at most $\omega_1$ and under
appropriate set-theoretic conditions are metrizable. Non-separable
locally connected Suslinian continua are rim-finite on some open set.

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].
