Irreducible Tuples Without the 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 DruryArveson Hilbert module is a prototype) with the property that any
two nested unitarily equivalent submodules are indeed equal.

A Cohomological Property of $\pi$invariant Elements
Let $A$ be a Banach algebra and $\pi \colon A \longrightarrow \mathscr L(H)$
be a continuous representation of $A$ on a separable Hilbert space $H$
with $\dim H =\frak m$. Let $\pi_{ij}$ be the coordinate functions of
$\pi$ with respect to an orthonormal basis and suppose that for each
$1\le j \le \frak m$, $C_j=\sum_{i=1}^{\frak m}
\\pi_{ij}\_{A^*}\lt \infty$ and $\sup_j C_j\lt \infty$. Under these
conditions, we call an element $\overline\Phi \in l^\infty (\frak m , A^{**})$
left $\pi$invariant if $a\cdot \overline\Phi ={}^t\pi (a) \overline\Phi$ for all
$a\in A$. In this paper we prove a link between the existence
of left $\pi$invariant elements and the vanishing of certain
Hochschild cohomology groups of $A$. Our results extend an earlier
result by Lau on $F$algebras and recent results of KaniuthLauPym
and the second named author in the special case that $\pi \colon A
\longrightarrow \mathbf C$ is a nonzero character on $A$.

Ordering the Representations of $S_n$ Using the Interchange Process
Inspired by Aldous' conjecture for
the spectral gap of the interchange process and its recent
resolution by Caputo, Liggett, and Richthammer, we define
an associated order $\prec$ on the irreducible representations of $S_n$. Aldous'
conjecture is equivalent to certain representations being comparable
in this order, and hence determining the ``Aldous order'' completely is a
generalized question. We show a few additional entries for this order.

A Representation Theorem for Archimedean Quadratic Modules on $*$Rings
We present a new approach to noncommutative real algebraic geometry
based on the representation theory of $C^\ast$algebras.
An important result in commutative real algebraic geometry is
Jacobi's representation theorem for archimedean quadratic modules
on commutative rings.
We show that this theorem is a consequence of the
GelfandNaimark representation theorem for commutative $C^\ast$algebras.
A noncommutative version of GelfandNaimark theory was studied by
I. Fujimoto. We use his results to generalize
Jacobi's theorem to associative rings with involution.

Classification of Finite GroupFrames and SuperFrames
Given a finite group $G$, we examine the classification of all
frame representations of $G$ and the classification of all
$G$frames, \emph{i.e.,} frames induced by group representations of $G$.
We show that the exact number of equivalence classes of $G$frames
and the exact number of frame representations can be explicitly
calculated. We also discuss how to calculate the largest number
$L$ such that there exists an $L$tuple of strongly disjoint
$G$frames.

Surjectivity of $\mod\ell$ Representations Attached to Elliptic Curves and Congruence Primes
For a modular elliptic curve $E/\mathbb{Q}$, we show a number of
links between the primes $\ell$ for which the mod $\ell$
representation of $E/\mathbb{Q}$ has projective dihedral image and
congruence primes for the newform associated to $E/\mathbb{Q}$.
