Universality under Szegő's condition
This paper presents a theorem on universality on orthogonal polynomials/random matrices under a weak local condition on the weight function $w$. With a new inequality for polynomials and with the use of fast decreasing polynomials, it is shown that an approach of D. S. Lubinsky is applicable. The proof works at all points which are Lebesgue-points both for the weight function $w$ and for $\log w$.

Non-branching RCD$(0,N)$ Geodesic Spaces with Small Linear Diameter Growth have Finitely Generated Fundamental Groups
In this paper, we generalize the finite generation result of Sormani to non-branching $RCD(0,N)$ geodesic spaces (and in particular, Alexandrov spaces) with full support measures. This is a special case of the Milnor's Conjecture for complete non-compact $RCD(0,N)$ spaces. One of the key tools we use is the Abresch-Gromoll type excess estimates for non-smooth spaces obtained by Gigli-Mosconi.

On classes $Q_p^\#$ for hyperbolic Riemann surfaces
The $Q_p$ spaces of holomorphic functions on the disk, hyperbolic Riemann surfaces or complex unit ball have been studied deeply. Meanwhile, there are a lot of papers devoted to the $Q^\#_p$ classes of meromorphic functions on the disk or hyperbolic Riemann surfaces. In this paper, we prove the nesting property (inclusion relations) of $Q^\#_p$ classes on hyperbolic Riemann surfaces. The same property for $Q_p$ spaces was also established systematically and precisely in earlier work by the authors of this paper.

Approximation of a function and its derivatives by entire functions
A simple proof is given for the fact that, for $m$ a non-negative integer, a function $f\in C^{(m)}(\mathbb{R}),$ and an arbitrary positive continuous function $\epsilon,$ there is an entire function $g,$ such that $|g^{(i)}(x)-f^{(i)}(x)|\lt \epsilon(x),$ for all $x\in\mathbb{R}$ and for each $i=0,1\dots,m.$ We also consider the situation, where $\mathbb{R}$ is replaced by an open interval.

A geometric extension of Schwarz's Lemma and applications
Let $f$ be a holomorphic function of the unit disc $\mathbb{D},$ preserving the origin. According to Schwarz's Lemma, $|f'(0)|\leq1,$ provided that $f(\mathbb{D})\subset\mathbb{D}.$ We prove that this bound still holds, assuming only that $f(\mathbb{D})$ does not contain any closed rectilinear segment $[0,e^{i\phi}],\;\phi\in[0,2\pi],$ i.e. does not contain any entire radius of the closed unit disc. Furthermore, we apply this result to the hyperbolic density and we give a covering theorem.

On Closed Ideals in a Certain Class of Algebras of Holomorphic Functions
We recently introduced a weighted Banach algebra $\mathfrak{A}_G^n$ of functions which are holomorphic on the unit disc $\mathbb{D}$, continuous up to the boundary and of the class $C^{(n)}$ at all points where the function $G$ does not vanish. Here, $G$ refers to a function of the disc algebra without zeros on $\mathbb{D}$. Then we proved that all closed ideals in $\mathfrak{A}_G^n$ with at most countable hull are standard. In the present paper, on the assumption that $G$ is an outer function in $C^{(n)}(\overline{\mathbb{D}})$ having infinite roots in $\mathfrak{A}_G^n$ and countable zero set $h(G)$, we show that all the closed ideals $I$ with hull containing $h(G)$ are standard.

The Schwarz Lemma at the Boundary of the Egg Domain $B_{p_1, p_2}$ in $\mathbb{C}^n$
Let $B_{p_1, p_2}=\{z\in\mathbb{C}^n: |z_1|^{p_1}+|z_2|^{p_2}+\cdots+|z_n|^{p_2}\lt 1\}$ be an egg domain in $\mathbb{C}^n$. In this paper, we first characterize the Kobayashi metric on $B_{p_1, p_2}\,(p_1\geq 1, p_2\geq 1)$, and then establish a new type of the classical boundary Schwarz lemma at $z_0\in\partial{B_{p_1, p_2}}$ for holomorphic self-mappings of $B_{p_1, p_2}(p_1\geq 1, p_2\gt 1)$, where $z_0=(e^{i\theta}, 0, \dots, 0)'$ and $\theta\in \mathbb{R}$.

A Short Note on Short Pants
It is a theorem of Bers that any closed hyperbolic surface admits a pants decomposition consisting of curves of bounded length where the bound only depends on the topology of the surface. The question of the quantification of the optimal constants has been well studied and the best upper bounds to date are linear in genus, a theorem of Buser and Seppälä. The goal of this note is to give a short proof of a linear upper bound which slightly improve the best known bound.

Semicrossed Products of the Disk Algebra and the Jacobson Radical
We consider semicrossed products of the disk algebra with respect to endomorphisms defined by finite Blaschke products. We characterize the Jacobson radical of these operator algebras. Furthermore, in the case the finite Blaschke product is elliptic, we show that the semicrossed product contains no nonzero quasinilpotent elements. However, if the finite Blaschke product is hyperbolic or parabolic with positive hyperbolic step, the Jacobson radical is nonzero and a proper subset of the set of quasinilpotent elements.

Inclusion Relations for New Function Spaces on Riemann Surfaces

We establish inclusion relations that generalize earlier known inclusions between the above-mentioned spaces.

Cesàro Operators on the Hardy Spaces of the Half-Plane
In this article we study the Cesàro operator $$ \mathcal{C}(f)(z)=\frac{1}{z}\int_{0}^{z}f(\zeta)\,d\zeta, $$ and its companion operator $\mathcal{T}$ on Hardy spaces of the upper half plane. We identify $\mathcal{C}$ and $\mathcal{T}$ as resolvents for appropriate semigroups of composition operators and we find the norm and the spectrum in each case. The relation of $\mathcal{C}$ and $\mathcal{T}$ with the corresponding Ces\`{a}ro operators on Lebesgue spaces $L^p(\mathbb R)$ of the boundary line is also discussed.

On the Smallest and Largest Zeros of Müntz-Legendre Polynomials
Müntz-Legendre polynomials $L_n(\Lambda;x)$ associated with a sequence $\Lambda=\{\lambda_k\}$ are obtained by orthogonalizing the system $(x^{\lambda_0}, x^{\lambda_1}, x^{\lambda_2}, \dots)$ in $L_2[0,1]$ with respect to the Legendre weight. If the $\lambda_k$'s are distinct, it is well known that $L_n(\Lambda;x)$ has exactly $n$ zeros $l_{n,n}\lt l_{n-1,n}\lt \cdots \lt l_{2,n}\lt l_{1,n}$ on $(0,1)$. First we prove the following global bound for the smallest zero, $$ \exp\biggl(-4\sum_{j=0}^n \frac{1}{2\lambda_j+1}\biggr) \lt l_{n,n}. $$ An important consequence is that if the associated Müntz space is non-dense in $L_2[0,1]$, then $$ \inf_{n}x_{n,n}\geq \exp\biggl({-4\sum_{j=0}^{\infty} \frac{1}{2\lambda_j+1}}\biggr)\gt 0, $$ so the elements $L_n(\Lambda;x)$ have no zeros close to 0. Furthermore, we determine the asymptotic behavior of the largest zeros; for $k$ fixed, $$ \lim_{n\rightarrow\infty} \vert \log l_{k,n}\vert \sum_{j=0}^n (2\lambda_j+1)= \Bigl(\frac{j_k}{2}\Bigr)^2, $$ where $j_k$ denotes the $k$-th zero of the Bessel function $J_0$.

Domains of Injective Holomorphy
A domain $\Omega$ is called a domain of injective holomorphy if there exists an injective holomorphic function $f\colon \Omega\rightarrow\mathbb{C}$ that is non-extendable. We give examples of domains that are domains of injective holomorphy and others that are not. In particular, every regular domain $(\overline\Omega^o=\Omega)$ is a domain of injective holomorphy, and every simply connected domain is a domain of injective holomorphy as well.

Boundedness From Below of Multiplication Operators Between $\alpha$-Bloch Spaces
In this paper, the boundedness from below of multiplication operators between $\alpha$-Bloch spaces $\mathcal B^\alpha$, $\alpha\gt 0$, on the unit disk $D$ is studied completely. For a bounded multiplication operator $M_u\colon \mathcal B^\alpha\to\mathcal B^\beta$, defined by $M_uf=uf$ for $f\in\mathcal B^\alpha$, we prove the following result: (i) If $0\lt \beta\lt \alpha$, or $0\lt \alpha\le1$ and $\alpha\lt \beta$, $M_u$ is not bounded below; (ii) if $0\lt \alpha=\beta\le1$, $M_u$ is bounded below if and only if $\liminf_{z\to\partial D}|u(z)|\gt 0$; (iii) if $1\lt \alpha\le\beta$, $M_u$ is bounded below if and only if there exist a $\delta\gt 0$ and a positive $r\lt 1$ such that for every point $z\in D$ there is a point $z'\in D$ with the property $d(z',z)\lt r$ and $(1-|z'|^2)^{\beta-\alpha}|u(z')|\ge\delta$, where $d(\cdot,\cdot)$ denotes the pseudo-distance on $D$.

Some Infinite Products of Ramanujan Type
In his ``lost'' notebook, Ramanujan stated two results, which are equivalent to the identities \[ \prod_{n=1}^{\infty} \frac{(1-q^n)^5}{(1-q^{5n})} =1-5\sum_{n=1}^{\infty}\Big( \sum_{d \mid n} \qu{5}{d} d \Big) q^n \] and \[ q\prod_{n=1}^{\infty} \frac{(1-q^{5n})^5}{(1-q^{n})} =\sum_{n=1}^{\infty}\Big( \sum_{d \mid n} \qu{5}{n/d} d \Big) q^n. \] We give several more identities of this type.

Expected Norms of Zero-One Polynomials
Let $\cA_n = \big\{ a_0 + a_1 z + \cdots + a_{n-1}z^{n-1} : a_j \in \{0, 1 \ } \big\}$, whose elements are called \emf{zero-one polynomials} and correspond naturally to the $2^n$ subsets of $[n] := \{ 0, 1, \ldots, n-1 \}$. We also let $\cA_{n,m} = \{ \alf(z) \in \cA_n : \alf(1) = m \}$, whose elements correspond to the ${n \choose m}$ subsets of~$[n]$ of size~$m$, and let $\cB_n = \cA_{n+1} \setminus \cA_n$, whose elements are the zero-one polynomials of degree exactly~$n$. Many researchers have studied norms of polynomials with restricted coefficients. Using $\norm{\alf}_p$ to denote the usual $L_p$ norm of~$\alf$ on the unit circle, one easily sees that $\alf(z) = a_0 + a_1 z + \cdots + a_N z^N \in \bR[z]$ satisfies $\norm{\alf}_2^2 = c_0$ and $\norm{\alf}_4^4 = c_0^2 + 2(c_1^2 + \cdots + c_N^2)$, where $c_k := \sum_{j=0}^{N-k} a_j a_{j+k}$ for $0 \le k \le N$. If $\alf(z) \in \cA_{n,m}$, say $\alf(z) = z^{\beta_1} + \cdots + z^{\beta_m}$ where $\beta_1 < \cdots < \beta_m$, then $c_k$ is the number of times $k$ appears as a difference $\beta_i - \beta_j$. The condition that $\alf \in \cA_{n,m}$ satisfies $c_k \in \{0,1\}$ for $1 \le k \le n-1$ is thus equivalent to the condition that $\{ \beta_1, \ldots, \beta_m \}$ is a \emf{Sidon set} (meaning all differences of pairs of elements are distinct). In this paper, we find the average of~$\|\alf\|_4^4$ over $\alf \in \cA_n$, $\alf \in \cB_n$, and $\alf \in \cA_{n,m}$. We further show that our expression for the average of~$\|\alf\|_4^4$ over~$\cA_{n,m}$ yields a new proof of the known result: if $m = o(n^{1/4})$ and $B(n,m)$ denotes the number of Sidon sets of size~$m$ in~$[n]$, then almost all subsets of~$[n]$ of size~$m$ are Sidon, in the sense that $\lim_{n \to \infty} B(n,m)/\binom{n}{m} = 1$.
