Convexnormal (pairs of) polytopes
In 2012 Gubeladze (Adv. Math. 2012)
introduced the notion of $k$convexnormal polytopes to show
that
integral polytopes all of whose edges are longer than $4d(d+1)$
have
the integer decomposition property.
In the first part of this paper we show that for lattice polytopes
there is no difference between $k$ and $(k+1)$convexnormality
(for
$k\geq 3 $) and improve the bound to $2d(d+1)$. In the second
part we
extend the definition to pairs of polytopes. Given two rational
polytopes $P$ and $Q$, where the normal fan of $P$ is a refinement
of
the normal fan of $Q$.
If every edge $e_P$ of $P$ is at least $d$ times as long as the
corresponding face (edge or vertex) $e_Q$ of $Q$, then $(P+Q)\cap
\mathbb{Z}^d
= (P\cap \mathbb{Z}^d ) + (Q \cap \mathbb{Z}^d)$.

Incompressibility of products of pseudohomogeneous varieties
We show that the conjectural criterion of $p$incompressibility
for products of projective homogeneous varieties in terms of
the factors, previously known in a few special cases only, holds
in general.
Actually, the proof goes through for a wider class of varieties
which includes the norm varieties associated to symbols in Galois
cohomology of arbitrary degree.

Exact Morphism Category and Gorensteinprojective Representations
Let $Q$ be a finite acyclic quiver, $J$ be an ideal of $kQ$ generated
by all arrows in $Q$, $A$ be a finitedimensional $k$algebra. The
category of all finitedimensional representations of $(Q, J^2)$ over
$A$ is denoted by $\operatorname{rep}(Q, J^2, A)$. In this paper, we
introduce the category $\operatorname{exa}(Q,J^2,A)$, which is a
subcategory of
$\operatorname{rep}{}(Q,J^2,A)$ of all exact representations.
The main result of this paper explicitly describes the Gorensteinprojective representations in $\operatorname{rep}{}(Q,J^2,A)$,
via the exact representations plus an extra condition.
As a corollary, $A$ is a selfinjective algebra, if
and only if the Gorensteinprojective representations are exactly the
exact representations of $(Q, J^2)$ over $A$.

Un Anneau Commutatif associÃ© Ã un design symÃ©trique
Dans les articles \cite{1}, \cite{2} et \cite{3}; l'auteur dÃ©veloppe une reprÃ©sentation
d'un plan projectif fini par un
anneau commutatif unitaire dont les propriÃ©tÃ©s algÃ©briques dÃ©pendent
de la structure gÃ©omÃ©trique du plan. Dans l'article \cite{4}; il Ã©tend cette reprÃ©sentation aux designs symÃ©triques. Cependant l'auteur de l'article \cite{7} fait remarquer que la multiplication dÃ©finie dans ce cas ne peut Ãªtre associative que si le design est un plan projectif.
Dans ce papier on mÃ¨nera
une Ã©tude de cette reprÃ©sentation dans le cas des designs
symÃ©triques. On y montrera comment on peut faire associer un
anneau commutatif unitaire Ã
tout design symÃ©trique , on y prÃ©cisera certaines de ses propriÃ©tÃ©s, en
particulier, celles qui relÃ¨vent de son invariance. On caractÃ©risera aussi les gÃ©omÃ©tries projectives finies de dimension supÃ©rieure moyennant cette reprÃ©sentation.

Productively LindelÃ¶f Spaces May All Be $D$
We give easy proofs that (a) the Continuum Hypothesis implies that if
the product of $X$ with every LindelÃ¶f space is LindelÃ¶f, then $X$ is
a $D$space, and (b) Borel's Conjecture implies every Rothberger space
is Hurewicz.

Involutions Fixing $F^n \cup \{\text{Indecomposable}\}$
Let $M^m$ be an $m$dimensional, closed and smooth manifold, equipped with a smooth involution $T\colon M^m \to M^m$ whose fixed point set has the form $F^n \cup F^j$, where $F^n$ and $F^j$ are submanifolds with dimensions $n$ and $j$, $F^j$ is indecomposable and $ n >j$. Write $nj=2^pq$, where $q \ge 1$ is odd and $p \geq 0$, and set $m(nj) = 2n+pq+1$ if $p \leq q + 1$
and $m(nj)= 2n + 2^{pq}$ if $p \geq q$. In this paper we show that $m \le m(nj) + 2j+1$. Further, we show that this bound is \emph{almost} best possible, by exhibiting examples $(M^{m(nj) +2j},T)$ where the fixed point set of
$T$ has the form $F^n \cup F^j$ described above, for every $2 \le j

Very Ample Linear Systems on BlowingsUp at General Points of Projective Spaces
Let $\mathbf{P}^n$ be the $n$dimensional projective space over some
algebraically closed field $k$ of characteristic $0$. For an integer
$t\geq 3$ consider the invertible sheaf $O(t)$ on $\mathbf{P}^n$ (Serre
twist of the structure sheaf). Let $N = \binom{t+n}{n}$, the
dimension of the space of global sections of $O(t)$, and let $k$ be an
integer satisfying $0\leq k\leq N  (2n+2)$. Let $P_1,\dots,P_k$
be general points on $\mathbf{P}^n$ and let $\pi \colon X \to
\mathbf{P}^n$ be the blowingup of $\mathbf{P}^n$ at those points.
Let $E_i = \pi^{1} (P_i)$ with $1\leq i\leq k$ be the exceptional
divisor. Then $M = \pi^* \bigl( O(t) \bigr) \otimes O_X (E_1 
\cdots E_k)$ is a very ample invertible sheaf on $X$.
