A determinantal inequality involving partial traces
Let $\mathbf{A}$ be a density matrix in $\mathbb{M}_m\otimes
\mathbb{M}_n$. Audenaert [J. Math. Phys. 48 (2007) 083507] proved
an inequality for Schatten $p$norms:
\[
1+\\mathbf{A}\_p\ge \\tr_1 \mathbf{A}\_p+\\tr_2 \mathbf{A}\_p,
\]
where $\tr_1, \tr_2$ stand for the first and second partial
trace, respectively. As an analogue of his result, we prove a
determinantal inequality
\[
1+\det \mathbf{A}\ge \det(\tr_1 \mathbf{A})^m+\det(\tr_2 \mathbf{A})^n.
\]

Hamiltonian Properties of Generalized Halin Graphs
A Halin graph is a graph $H=T\cup C$, where $T$ is a tree with no
vertex of degree two, and $C$ is a cycle connecting the endvertices
of $T$ in the cyclic order determined by a plane embedding of $T$.
In this paper, we define classes of generalized Halin graphs, called
$k$Halin graphs, and investigate their Hamiltonian properties.

First Variations of the Best Sobolev Trace Constant with Respect to the Domain
In this paper we study the best constant of the Sobolev trace
embedding $H^{1}(\Omega)\to L^{2}(\partial\Omega)$, where $\Omega$
is a bounded smooth domain in $\RR^N$. We find a formula for the
first variation of the best constant with respect to the domain.
As a consequence, we prove that the ball is a critical domain when
we consider deformations that preserve volume.

Trivial Units in Group Rings
Let $G$ be an arbitrary group and let $U$ be a subgroup of the
normalized units in $\mathbb{Z}G$. We show that if $U$ contains $G$
as a subgroup of finite index, then $U = G$. This result can be used
to give an alternative proof of a recent result of Marciniak and
Sehgal on units in the integral group ring of a crystallographic group.
