Exotic Torsion, Frobenius Splitting and the Slope Spectral Sequence
In this paper we show that any Frobenius split, smooth, projective threefold over a perfect field of characteristic $p>0$ is Hodge--Witt. This is proved by generalizing to the case of threefolds a well-known criterion due to N.~Nygaard for surfaces to be Hodge-Witt. We also show that the second crystalline cohomology of any smooth, projective Frobenius split variety does not have any exotic torsion. In the last two sections we include some applications.

Keywords:threefolds, Frobenius splitting, Hodge--Witt, crystalline cohomology, slope spectral sequence, exotic torsion

On the Image of Certain Extension Maps.~I
Let $X$ be a smooth complex projective curve of genus $g\geq 1$. Let $\xi\in J^1(X)$ be a line bundle on $X$ of degree $1$. Let $W=\Ext^1(\xi^n,\xi^{-1})$ be the space of extensions of $\xi^n$ by $\xi^{-1}$. There is a rational map $D_{\xi}\colon G(n,W)\rightarrow SU_{X}(n+1)$, where $G(n,W)$ is the Grassmannian variety of $n$-linear subspaces of $W$ and $\SU_{X}(n+1)$ is the moduli space of rank $n+1$ semi-stable vector bundles on $X$ with trivial determinant. We prove that if $n=2$, then $D_{\xi}$ is everywhere defined and is injective.

Plane Quartic Twists of $X(5,3)$
Given an odd surjective Galois representation $\varrho\from \G_\Q\to\PGL_2(\F_3)$ and a positive integer~$N$, there exists a twisted modular curve $X(N,3)_\varrho$ defined over $\Q$ whose rational points classify the quadratic $\Q$-curves of degree $N$ realizing~$\varrho$. This paper gives a method to provide an explicit plane quartic model for this curve in the genus-three case $N=5$.

Elliptic $K3$ Surfaces with Geometric Mordell--Weil Rank $15$
We prove that the elliptic surface $y^2=x^3+2(t^8+14t^4+1)x+4t^2(t^8+6t^4+1)$ has geometric Mordell--Weil rank $15$. This completes a list of Kuwata, who gave explicit examples of elliptic $K3$-surfaces with geometric Mordell--Weil ranks $0,1,\dots, 14, 16, 17, 18$.

$\varphi$-Dialgebras and a Class of Matrix ``Coquecigrues''
Starting with the Leibniz algebra defined by a $\varphi$-dialgebra, we construct examples of ``coquecigrues,'' in the sense of Loday, that is to say, manifolds whose tangent structure at a distinguished point coincides with that of the Leibniz algebra. We discuss some possible implications and generalizations of this construction.

On Valuations, Places and Graded Rings Associated to $*$-Orderings
We study natural $*$-valuations, $*$-places and graded $*$-rings associated with $*$-ordered rings. We prove that the natural $*$-valuation is always quasi-Ore and is even quasi-commutative (\emph{i.e.,} the corresponding graded $*$-ring is commutative), provided the ring contains an imaginary unit. Furthermore, it is proved that the graded $*$-ring is isomorphic to a twisted semigroup algebra. Our results are applied to answer a question of Cimpri\v c regarding $*$-orderability of quantum groups.

Group Actions, Cyclic Coverings and Families of K3-Surfaces
In this paper we describe six pencils of $K3$-surfaces which have large Picard number ($\rho=19,20$) and each contains precisely five special fibers: four have A-D-E singularities and one is non-reduced. In particular, we characterize these surfaces as cyclic coverings of some $K3$-surfaces described in a recent paper by Barth and the author. In many cases, using 3-divisible sets, resp., 2-divisible sets, of rational curves and lattice theory, we describe explicitly the Picard lattices.

A K3 Surface Associated With Certain Integral Matrices Having Integral Eigenvalues
In this article we will show that there are infinitely many symmetric, integral $3 \times 3$ matrices, with zeros on the diagonal, whose eigenvalues are all integral. We will do this by proving that the rational points on a certain non-Kummer, singular K3 surface are dense. We will also compute the entire Néron-Severi group of this surface and find all low degree curves on it.

A Note on Detecting Algebraic Cycles
The purpose of this note is to show that the homologically trivial cycles contructed by Clemens and their generalisations due to Paranjape can be detected by the technique of spreading out. More precisely, we associate to these cycles (and the ambient varieties in which they live) certain families which arise naturally and which are defined over $\bbC$ and show that these cycles, along with their relations, can be detected in the singular cohomology of the total space of these families.

On the Modularity of Three Calabi--Yau Threefolds With Bad Reduction at 11
This paper investigates the modularity of three non-rigid Calabi--Yau threefolds with bad reduction at 11. They are constructed as fibre products of rational elliptic surfaces, involving the modular elliptic surface of level 5. Their middle $\ell$-adic cohomology groups are shown to split into two-dimensional pieces, all but one of which can be interpreted in terms of elliptic curves. The remaining pieces are associated to newforms of weight 4 and level 22 or 55, respectively. For this purpose, we develop a method by Serre to compare the corresponding two-dimensional 2-adic Galois representations with uneven trace. Eventually this method is also applied to a self fibre product of the Hesse-pencil, relating it to a newform of weight 4 and level 27.

Going-Down Results for $C_{i}$-Fields
We search for theorems that, given a $C_i$-field $K$ and a subfield $k$ of $K$, allow us to conclude that $k$ is a $C_j$-field for some $j$. We give appropriate theorems in the case $K=k(t)$ and $K = k\llp t\rrp$. We then consider the more difficult case where $K/k$ is an algebraic extension. Here we are able to prove some results, and make conjectures. We also point out the connection between these questions and Lang's conjecture on nonreal function fields over a real closed field.

Additive Riemann--Hilbert Problem in Line Bundles Over $\mathbb{CP}^1$
In this note we consider $\overline\partial$-problem in line bundles over complex projective space $\mathbb{CP}^1$ and prove that the equation can be solved for $(0,1)$ forms with compact support. As a consequence, any Cauchy-Riemann function on a compact real hypersurface in such line bundles is a jump of two holomorphic functions defined on the sides of the hypersurface. In particular, the results can be applied to $\mathbb{CP}^2$ since by removing a point from it we get a line bundle over $\mathbb{CP}^1$.

Hyperplanes of the Form ${f_1(x,y)z_1+\dots+f_k(x,y)z_k+g(x,y)}$ Are Variables
The Abhyankar--Sathaye Embedded Hyperplane Problem asks whe\-ther any hypersurface of $\C^n$ isomorphic to $\C^{n-1}$ is rectifiable, {\em i.e.,} equivalent to a linear hyperplane up to an automorphism of $\C^n$. Generalizing the approach adopted by Kaliman, V\'en\'ereau, and Zaidenberg which consists in using almost nothing but the acyclicity of $\C^{n-1}$, we solve this problem for hypersurfaces given by polynomials of $\C[x,y,z_1,\dots, z_k]$ as in the title.

Degeneracy of 2-Forms and 3-Forms
We study some global aspects of differential complex 2-forms and 3-forms on complex manifolds. We compute the cohomology classes represented by the sets of points on a manifold where such a form degenerates in various senses, together with other similar cohomological obstructions. Based on these results and a formula for projective representations, we calculate the degree of the projectivization of certain orbits of the representation $\Lambda^k\C^n$.

Vector Fields and the Cohomology Ring of Toric Varieties
Let $X$ be a smooth complex projective variety with a holomorphic vector field with isolated zero set $Z$. From the results of Carrell and Lieberman there exists a filtration $F_0 \subset F_1 \subset \cdots$ of $A(Z)$, the ring of $\c$-valued functions on $Z$, such that $\Gr A(Z) \cong H^*(X, \c)$ as graded algebras. In this note, for a smooth projective toric variety and a vector field generated by the action of a $1$-parameter subgroup of the torus, we work out this filtration. Our main result is an explicit connection between this filtration and the polytope algebra of $X$.

Geometry and Arithmetic of Certain Double Octic Calabi--Yau Manifolds
We study Calabi--Yau manifolds constructed as double coverings of $\mathbb{P}^3$ branched along an octic surface. We give a list of 87 examples corresponding to arrangements of eight planes defined over $\mathbb{Q}$. The Hodge numbers are computed for all examples. There are 10 rigid Calabi--Yau manifolds and 14 families with $h^{1,2}=1$. The modularity conjecture is verified for all the rigid examples.

Indecomposable Higher Chow Cycles
Let $X$ be a projective smooth variety over a field $k$. In the first part we show that an indecomposable element in $CH^2(X,1)$ can be lifted to an indecomposable element in $CH^3(X_K,2)$ where $K$ is the function field of 1 variable over $k$. We also show that if $X$ is the self-product of an elliptic curve over $\Q$ then the $\Q$-vector space of indecomposable cycles $CH^3_{ind}(X_\C,2)_\Q$ is infinite dimensional. In the second part we give a new definition of the group of indecomposable cycles of $CH^3(X,2)$ and give an example of non-torsion cycle in this group.

Products of Conjugacy Classes in $SU(2)$
We obtain a complete description of the conjugacy classes $C_1,\dots,C_n$ in $SU(2)$ with the property that $C_1\cdots C_n=SU(2)$. The basic instrument is a characterization of the conjugacy classes $C_1,\dots,C_{n+1}$ in $SU(2)$ with $C_1\cdots C_{n+1}\ni I$, which generalizes a result of \cite{Je-We}.
