On chromatic functors and stable partitions of graphs
The chromatic functor of a simple graph is a functorization of
the chromatic polynomial. M. Yoshinaga showed
that two finite graphs have isomorphic chromatic functors if
and only if they have the same chromatic polynomial. The key
ingredient in the proof is the use of stable partitions of graphs.
The latter is shown to be closely related to chromatic functors.
In this note, we further investigate some interesting properties
of chromatic functors associated to simple graphs using stable
partitions. Our first result is the determination of the group
of natural automorphisms of the chromatic functor, which is in
general a larger group than the automorphism group of the graph.
The second result is that the composition of the chromatic functor
associated to a finite graph restricted to the category $\mathrm{FI}$
of finite sets and injections with the free functor into the
category of complex vector spaces yields a consistent sequence
of representations of symmetric groups which is representation
stable in the sense of ChurchFarb.

On Ulam stability of a functional equation in Banach modules
Let $X$ and $Y$ be Banach spaces and $f : X \to Y$ an odd mapping.
For any rational number $r \ne 2$, C. Baak, D. H.
Boo, and Th. M. Rassias have proved the HyersUlam stability
of the following functional equation:
\begin{align*}
r f
\left(\frac{\sum_{j=1}^d x_j}{r}
\right)
& + \sum_{\substack{i(j) \in \{0,1\}
\\ \sum_{j=1}^d i(j)=\ell}} r f
\left(
\frac{\sum_{j=1}^d (1)^{i(j)}x_j}{r}
\right)
= (C^\ell_{d1}  C^{\ell 1}_{d1} + 1) \sum_{j=1}^d
f(x_j)
\end{align*}
where $d$ and $\ell$ are positive integers so that $1 \lt \ell
\lt \frac{d}{2}$, and $C^p_q := \frac{q!}{(qp)!p!}$,
$p, q \in \mathbb{N}$ with $p \le q$.
In this note we solve this equation for arbitrary nonzero scalar
$r$ and show that it is actually HyersUlam stable.
We thus extend and generalize Baak et al.'s result.
Different questions concerning the *homomorphisms and the
multipliers between C*algebras are also
considered.

Stability threshold for scalar linear periodic delay differential equations
We prove that for the linear scalar delay differential
equation
$$ \dot{x}(t) =  a(t)x(t) + b(t)x(t1) $$
with nonnegative periodic coefficients of period $P\gt 0$, the
stability threshold for the trivial solution is
$r:=\int_{0}^{P}
\left(b(t)a(t)
\right)\mathrm{d}t=0,$
assuming that $b(t+1)a(t)$ does not change its sign. By constructing
a class of explicit examples, we show the counterintuitive result
that in general, $r=0$ is not a stability threshold.

Cubic functional equations on restricted domains of Lebesgue measure zero
Let $X$ be a real normed space, $Y$ a Bancch space and $f:X \to
Y$.
We prove the UlamHyers stability theorem
for the cubic functional equation
\begin{align*}
f(2x+y)+f(2xy)2f(x+y)2f(xy)12f(x)=0
\end{align*}
in restricted domains. As an application we consider a measure
zero stability problem
of the inequality
\begin{align*}
\f(2x+y)+f(2xy)2f(x+y)2f(xy)12f(x)\\le \epsilon
\end{align*}
for all $(x, y)$ in $\Gamma\subset\mathbb R^2$ of Lebesgue measure
0.

Stability of vector bundles on curves and degenerations
We introduce a weaker notion of (semi)stability for vector bundles
on
reducible curves which does not depend on a choice of polarization,
and
which suffices for many applications of degeneration techniques.
We explore the basic
properties of this alternate notion of (semi)stability. In a
complementary
direction, we record a proof of the existence of semistable extensions
of vector bundles in suitable degenerations.

Dynamical Analysis of a StageStructured Model for Lyme Disease with Two Delays
In this paper, a
nonlinear stagestructured model for Lyme disease is considered.
The model is a system of differential equations with two time
delays. The basic reproductive rate, $R_0(\tau_1,\tau_2)$, is
derived. If $R_0(\tau_1,\tau_2)\lt 1$, then the boundary equilibrium
is globally asymptotically stable. If $R_0(\tau_1,\tau_2)\gt 1$,
then there exists
a unique positive equilibrium whose local asymptotical stability
and the existence of
Hopf bifurcations are established by analyzing the distribution
of the characteristic values.
An explicit algorithm for determining the direction of Hopf bifurcations
and the
stability of the bifurcating periodic solutions is derived by
using the normal form and
the center manifold theory. Some numerical simulations are performed
to confirm the correctness
of theoretical analysis. At last, some conclusions are given.

On an Exponential Functional Inequality and its Distributional Version
Let $G$ be a group and $\mathbb K=\mathbb C$ or $\mathbb
R$.
In this article, as a generalization of the result of Albert
and Baker,
we investigate the behavior of bounded
and unbounded functions $f\colon G\to \mathbb K$ satisfying the inequality
$
\Biglf
\Bigl(\sum_{k=1}^n x_k
\Bigr)\prod_{k=1}^n f(x_k)
\Bigr\le \phi(x_2, \dots, x_n),\quad \forall\, x_1, \dots,
x_n\in G,
$
where $\phi\colon G^{n1}\to [0, \infty)$. Also, as a distributional
version of the above inequality we consider the stability of
the functional equation
\begin{equation*}
u\circ S  \overbrace{u\otimes \cdots \otimes u}^{n\text {times}}=0,
\end{equation*}
where $u$ is a Schwartz distribution or Gelfand hyperfunction,
$\circ$ and $\otimes$ are the pullback and tensor product of
distributions, respectively, and $S(x_1, \dots, x_n)=x_1+ \dots
+x_n$.

Stability of Real $C^*$Algebras
We will give a characterization of stable real $C^*$algebras
analogous to the one given for complex $C^*$algebras by Hjelmborg
and RÃ¸rdam. Using this result, we will prove
that any real $C^*$algebra satisfying the corona factorization
property is stable if and only if its complexification is stable.
Real $C^*$algebras satisfying the corona factorization property
include AFalgebras and purely infinite $C^*$algebras. We will also
provide an example of a simple unstable $C^*$algebra, the
complexification of which is stable.

Restriction of the Tangent Bundle of $G/P$ to a Hypersurface
Let P be a maximal proper parabolic subgroup of a connected simple linear algebraic group G, defined over $\mathbb C$, such that $n := \dim_{\mathbb C} G/P \geq 4$. Let $\iota \colon Z \hookrightarrow G/P$ be a reduced smooth hypersurface of degree at least $(n1)\cdot \operatorname{degree}(T(G/P))/n$. We prove that the restriction of the tangent bundle $\iota^*TG/P$ is semistable.

Obstructions to $\mathcal{Z}$Stability for Unital Simple $C^*$Algebras
Let $\cZ$ be the unital simple nuclear infinite dimensional
$C^*$algebra which has the same Elliott invariant as $\bbC$,
introduced in \cite{JS}. A $C^*$algebra is called $\cZ$stable
if $A \cong A \otimes \cZ$. In this note we give some necessary
conditions for a unital simple $C^*$algebra to be $\cZ$stable.

Stability of weighted darma filters
We study the stability of linear filters associated with certain types of
linear difference equations with variable coefficients. We show that
stability is determined by the locations of the poles of a rational transfer
function relative to the spectrum of an associated weighted shift operator.
The known theory for filters associated with constantcoefficient difference
equations is a special case.
