Conjugacy Classes and Binary Quadratic Forms for the Hecke Groups
In this paper we give a lower bound
with respect to block length
for the trace of nonelliptic conjugacy classes
of the Hecke groups.
One consequence of our bound
is that there are finitely many
conjugacy classes of a given trace in any Hecke group.
We show that another consequence of our bound
is that
class numbers are finite for
related hyperbolic \( \mathbb{Z}[\lambda] \)binary quadratic forms.
We give canonical class representatives
and calculate class numbers
for some classes of hyperbolic \( \mathbb{Z}[\lambda] \)binary quadratic forms.

An Extension of Craig's Family of Lattices
Let $p$ be a prime, and let $\zeta_p$ be a primitive $p$th root of
unity. The lattices in Craig's family are $(p1)$dimensional and
are geometrical representations of the integral $\mathbb
Z[\zeta_p]$ideals $\langle 1\zeta_p \rangle^i$, where $i$ is a
positive integer. This lattice construction technique is a powerful
one. Indeed, in dimensions $p1$ where $149 \leq p \leq 3001$,
Craig's lattices are the densest packings known. Motivated by this,
we construct $(p1)(q1)$dimensional lattices from the integral
$\mathbb Z[\zeta _{pq}]$ideals $\langle 1\zeta_p \rangle^i \langle
1\zeta_q \rangle^j$, where $p$ and $q$ are distinct primes and $i$
and $j$ are positive integers. In terms of spherepacking density,
the new lattices and those in Craig's family have the same
asymptotic behavior. In conclusion, Craig's family is greatly
extended while preserving its spherepacking properties.

Systems of Hermitian Quadratic Forms
In this paper, we give some conditions to judge when a system of
Hermitian quadratic forms has a real linear combination which is
positive definite or positive semidefinite. We also study some
related geometric and topological properties of the moduli space.

Splitting patterns and trace forms
The splitting pattern of a quadratic form $q$ over
a field $k$ consists of all distinct Witt indices that occur for $q$
over extension fields of $k$. In small dimensions, the complete list
of splitting patterns of quadratic forms is known. We show that
{\it all\/} splitting patterns of quadratic forms of dimension at
most nine can be realized by trace forms.
