On the Generalized d'Alembert's and Wilson's Functional Equations on a Compact group
Let $G$ be a compact group. Let $\sigma$ be a continuous involution of $G$. In this paper, we are concerned by the following functional equation $$\int_{G}f(xtyt^{-1})\,dt+\int_{G}f(xt\sigma(y)t^{-1})\,dt=2g(x)h(y), \quad x, y \in G,$$ where $f, g, h \colonG \mapsto \mathbb{C}$, to be determined, are complex continuous functions on $G$ such that $f$ is central. This equation generalizes d'Alembert's and Wilson's functional equations. We show that the solutions are expressed by means of characters of irreducible, continuous and unitary representations of the group $G$.

Keywords:Compact groups, Functional equations, Central functions, Lie, groups, Invariant differential operators.

On the Stable Basin Theorem
The stable basin theorem was introduced by Basmajian and Miner as a key step in their necessary condition for the discreteness of a non-elementary group of complex hyperbolic isometries. In this paper we improve several of Basmajian and Miner's key estimates and so give a substantial improvement on the main inequality in the stable basin theorem.

Countable Amenable Identity Excluding Groups
A discrete group $G$ is called \emph{identity excluding\/} if the only irreducible unitary representation of $G$ which weakly contains the $1$-dimensional identity representation is the $1$-dimensional identity representation itself. Given a unitary representation $\pi$ of $G$ and a probability measure $\mu$ on $G$, let $P_\mu$ denote the $\mu$-average $\int\pi(g) \mu(dg)$. The goal of this article is twofold: (1)~to study the asymptotic behaviour of the powers $P_\mu^n$, and (2)~to provide a characterization of countable amenable identity excluding groups. We prove that for every adapted probability measure $\mu$ on an identity excluding group and every unitary representation $\pi$ there exists and orthogonal projection $E_\mu$ onto a $\pi$-invariant subspace such that $s$-$\lim_{n\to\infty}\bigl(P_\mu^n- \pi(a)^nE_\mu\bigr)=0$ for every $a\in\supp\mu$. This also remains true for suitably defined identity excluding locally compact groups. We show that the class of countable amenable identity excluding groups coincides with the class of $\FC$-hypercentral groups; in the finitely generated case this is precisely the class of groups of polynomial growth. We also establish that every adapted random walk on a countable amenable identity excluding group is ergodic.

Some Questions about Semisimple Lie Groups Originating in Matrix Theory
We generalize the well-known result that a square traceless complex matrix is unitarily similar to a matrix with zero diagonal to arbitrary connected semisimple complex Lie groups $G$ and their Lie algebras $\mathfrak{g}$ under the action of a maximal compact subgroup $K$ of $G$. We also introduce a natural partial order on $\mathfrak{g}$: $x\le y$ if $f(K\cdot x) \subseteq f(K\cdot y)$ for all $f\in \mathfrak{g}^*$, the complex dual of $\mathfrak{g}$. This partial order is $K$-invariant and induces a partial order on the orbit space $\mathfrak{g}/K$. We prove that, under some restrictions on $\mathfrak{g}$, the set $f(K\cdot x)$ is star-shaped with respect to the origin.

A Note on the Automorphic Langlands Group
Langlands has conjectured the existence of a universal group, an extension of the absolute Galois group, which would play a fundamental role in the classification of automorphic representations. We shall describe a possible candidate for this group. We shall also describe a possible candidate for the complexification of Grothendieck's motivic Galois group.

Mellin Transforms of Whittaker Functions
In this note we show that for an arbitrary reductive Lie group and any admissible irreducible Banach representation the Mellin transforms of Whittaker functions extend to meromorphic functions. We locate the possible poles and show that they always lie along translates of walls of Weyl chambers.

Globalization of Distinguished Supercuspidal Representations of $\GL(n)$
An irreducible supercuspidal representation $\pi$ of $G= \GL(n,F)$, where $F$ is a nonarchimedean local field of characteristic zero, is said to be ``distinguished'' by a subgroup $H$ of $G$ and a quasicharacter $\chi$ of $H$ if $\Hom_H(\pi,\chi)\noteq 0$. There is a suitable global analogue of this notion for and irreducible, automorphic, cuspidal representation associated to $\GL(n)$. Under certain general hypotheses, it is shown in this paper that every distinguished, irreducible, supercuspidal representation may be realized as a local component of a distinguished, irreducible automorphic, cuspidal representation. Applications to the theory of distinguished supercuspidal representations are provided.

Finite Groups Generated by Involutions on Lagrangian Planes of $\mathbf{C}^2$
We classify finite subgroups of $\SO(4)$ generated by anti-unitary involutions. They correspond to involutions fixing pointwise a Lagrangian plane. Explicit descriptions of the finite groups and the configurations of Lagrangian planes are obtained.

Matching of Weighted Orbital Integrals for Metaplectic Correspondences
We prove an identity between weighted orbital integrals of the unit elements in the Hecke algebras of $\GL(r)$ and its $n$-fold metaplectic covering, under the assumption that $n$ is relatively prime to any proper divisor of every $1 \leq j \leq r$.

Ergodic Rotations of Nilmanifolds Conjugate to Their Inverses
In answer to a question posed in \cite{G}, we give sufficient conditions on a Lie nilmanifold so that any ergodic rotation of the nilmanifold is metrically conjugate to its inverse. The condition is that the Lie algebra be what we call quasi-graded, and is weaker than the property of being graded. Furthermore, the conjugating map can be chosen to be an involution. It is shown that for a special class of groups, the condition of quasi-graded is also necessary. In certain examples there is a continuum of conjugacies.

A Proof of Casselman-Shahidi's Conjecture for Quasi-split Classical Groups
In this paper the author prove that standard modules of classical groups whose Langlands quotients are generic are irreducible. This establishes a conjecture of Casselman and Shahidi for this important class of groups.

Properties of the Invariants of Solvable Lie Algebras
We generalize to a field of characteristic zero certain properties of the invariant functions of the coadjoint representation of solvable Lie algebras with abelian nilradicals, previously obtained over the base field $\bbC$ of complex numbers. In particular we determine their number and the restricted type of variables on which they depend. We also determine an upper bound on the maximal number of functionally independent invariants for certain families of solvable Lie algebras with arbitrary nilradicals.

Twists of a General Class of $L$-Functions by Highly Ramified Characters
It is shown that given a local $L$-function defined by Langlands-Shahidi method, there exists a highly ramified character of the group which when is twisted with the original representation leads to a trivial $L$-function.

A Property of Lie Group Orbits
Let $G$ be a real Lie group and $X$ a real analytic manifold. Suppose that $G$ acts analytically on $X$ with finitely many orbits. Then the orbits are subanalytic in $X$. As a consequence we show that the micro-support of a $G$-equivariant sheaf on $X$ is contained in the conormal variety of the $G$-action.

A Class of Supercuspidal Representations of $G_2(k)$
Let $H$ be an exceptional, adjoint group of type $E_6$ and split rank 2, over a $p$-adic field $k$. In this article we discuss the restriction of the minimal representation of $H$ to a dual pair $\PD^{\times}\times G_2(k)$, where $D$ is a division algebra of dimension 9 over $k$. In particular, we discover an interesting class of supercuspidal representations of $G_2(k)$.

The right regular representation of a compact right topological group
We show that for certain compact right topological groups, $\overline{r(G)}$, the strong operator topology closure of the image of the right regular representation of $G$ in ${\cal L}({\cal H})$, where ${\cal H} = \L2$, is a compact topological group and introduce a class of representations, ${\cal R}$, which effectively transfers the representation theory of $\overline{r(G)}$ over to $G$. Amongst the groups for which this holds is the class of equicontinuous groups which have been studied by Ruppert in [10]. We use familiar examples to illustrate these features of the theory and to provide a counter-example. Finally we remark that every equicontinuous group which is at the same time a Borel group is in fact a topological group.

The range of group algebra homomorphisms
A characterisation of the range of a homomorphism between two commutative group algebras is presented which implies, among other things, that this range is closed. The work relies mainly on the characterisation of such homomorphisms achieved by P.~J.~Cohen.
