 On the Diameter of Unitary Cayley Graphs of Rings The unitary Cayley graph of a ring $R$, denoted $\Gamma(R)$, is the simple graph defined on all elements of $R$, and where two vertices $x$ and $y$ are adjacent if and only if $x-y$ is a unit in $R$. The largest distance between all pairs of vertices of a graph $G$ is called the diameter of $G$, and is denoted by ${\rm diam}(G)$. It is proved that for each integer $n\geq1$, there exists a ring $R$ such that ${\rm diam}(\Gamma(R))=n$. We also show that ${\rm diam}(\Gamma(R))\in \{1,2,3,\infty\}$ for a ring $R$ with $R/J(R)$ self-injective and classify all those rings with ${\rm diam}(\Gamma(R))=1$, 2, 3 and $\infty$, respectively.

 Rings in Which Every Element is a Sum of Two Tripotents Let $R$ be a ring. The following results are proved: $(1)$ every element of $R$ is a sum of an idempotent and a tripotent that commute iff $R$ has the identity $x^6=x^4$ iff $R\cong R_1\times R_2$, where $R_1/J(R_1)$ is Boolean with $U(R_1)$ a group of exponent $2$ and $R_2$ is zero or a subdirect product of $\mathbb Z_3$'s; $(2)$ every element of $R$ is either a sum or a difference of two commuting idempotents iff $R\cong R_1\times R_2$, where $R_1/J(R_1)$ is Boolean with $J(R_1)=0$ or $J(R_1)=\{0,2\}$, and $R_2$ is zero or a subdirect product of $\mathbb Z_3$'s; $(3)$ every element of $R$ is a sum of two commuting tripotents iff $R\cong R_1\times R_2\times R_3$, where $R_1/J(R_1)$ is Boolean with $U(R_1)$ a group of exponent $2$, $R_2$ is zero or a subdirect product of $\mathbb Z_3$'s, and $R_3$ is zero or a subdirect product of $\mathbb Z_5$'s.

 The Structure of the Unit Group of the Group Algebra ${\mathbb{F}}_{2^k}D_{8}$ Let $RG$ denote the group ring of the group $G$ over the ring $R$. Using an isomorphism between $RG$ and a certain ring of $n \times n$ matrices in conjunction with other techniques, the structure of the unit group of the group algebra of the dihedral group of order $8$ over any finite field of chracteristic $2$ is determined in terms of split extensions of cyclic groups.

 Trivial Units for Group Rings with $G$-adapted Coefficient Rings For each finite group $G$ for which the integral group ring $\mathbb{Z}G$ has only trivial units, we give ring-theoretic conditions for a commutative ring $R$ under which the group ring $RG$ has nontrivial units. Several examples of rings satisfying the conditions and rings not satisfying the conditions are given. In addition, we extend a well-known result for fields by showing that if $R$ is a ring of finite characteristic and $RG$ has only trivial units, then $G$ has order at most 3.

 Normal Subloops in the Integral Loop Ring of an $\RA$ Loop We show that an $\RA$ loop has a torsion-free normal complement in the loop of normalized units of its integral loop ring. We also investigate whether an $\RA$ loop can be normal in its unit loop. Over fields, this can never happen. Categories:20N05, 17D05, 16S34, 16U60

 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.

 The transfer of a commutator law from a nil-ring to its adjoint group For every field $F$ of characteristic $p\geq 0$, we construct an example of a finite dimensional nilpotent $F$-algebra $R$ whose adjoint group $A(R)$ is not centre-by-metabelian, in spite of the fact that $R$ is Lie centre-by-metabelian and satisfies the identities $x^{2p}=0$ when $p>2$ and $x^8=0$ when $p=2$. The existence of such algebras answers a question raised by A.~E.~Zalesskii, and is in contrast to positive results obtained by Krasilnikov, Sharma and Srivastava for Lie metabelian rings and by Smirnov for the class Lie centre-by-metabelian nil-algebras of exponent 4 over a field of characteristic 2 of cardinality at least 4.
