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
$(1z'^2)^{\beta\alpha}u(z')\ge\delta$, where $d(\cdot,\cdot)$ denotes
the pseudodistance on $D$.

Some Infinite Products of Ramanujan Type
In his ``lost'' notebook, Ramanujan stated two results, which are equivalent to the identities
\[
\prod_{n=1}^{\infty} \frac{(1q^n)^5}{(1q^{5n})}
=15\sum_{n=1}^{\infty}\Big( \sum_{d \mid n} \qu{5}{d} d \Big) q^n
\]
and
\[
q\prod_{n=1}^{\infty} \frac{(1q^{5n})^5}{(1q^{n})}
=\sum_{n=1}^{\infty}\Big( \sum_{d \mid n} \qu{5}{n/d} d \Big) q^n.
\]
We give several more identities of this type.

Cusp Forms Like $\Delta$
Let $f$ be a squarefree integer and denote by $\Gamma_0(f)^+$ the
normalizer of $\Gamma_0(f)$ in $\SL(2,\R)$. We find the analogues of
the cusp form $\Delta$ for the groups $\Gamma_0(f)^+$.

Expected Norms of ZeroOne Polynomials
Let $\cA_n = \big\{ a_0 + a_1 z + \cdots + a_{n1}z^{n1} : a_j \in \{0, 1 \
} \big\}$, whose elements are called \emf{zeroone polynomials}
and correspond naturally to the $2^n$ subsets of $[n] := \{ 0, 1,
\ldots, n1 \}$. 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 zeroone 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 $c_k
:= \sum_{j=0}^{Nk} a_j a_{j+k}$ 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 $1
\le k \le n1$ 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
$\lim_{n \to \infty} B(n,m)/\binom{n}{m} = 1$.

Universal Inner Functions on the Ball
It is shown that given any sequence of automorphisms $(\phi_k)_k$ of the
unit ball $\bn$ of $\cn$ such that $\\phi_k(0)\$ tends to $1$,
there exists an inner function
$I$ such that the family of ``nonEuclidean translates"
$(I\circ\phi_k)_k$ is locally uniformly dense in the unit ball of
$H^\infty(\bn)$.

$p$Radial Exceptional Sets and Conformal Mappings
For $p>0$ and for a given set $E$ of type $G_{\delta}$ in the boundary
of the unit disc $\partial\mathbb D$ we construct a holomorphic function
$f\in\mathbb O(\mathbb D)$ such that
\[
\int_{\mathbb D\setminus[0,1]E}ft^{p}\,d\mathfrak{L}^{2}<\infty\]
and\[
E=E^{p}(f)=\Bigl\{ z\in\partial\mathbb D:\int_{0}^{1}f(tz)^{p}\,dt=\infty\Bigr\} .\]
In particular if a set $E$ has a measure equal to zero, then a function
$f$ is constructed as integrable with power $p$ on the unit disc $\mathbb D$.

Unimodular Roots of\\ Special Littlewood Polynomials
We call $\alpha(z) = a_0 + a_1 z + \dots + a_{n1} z^{n1}$ a Littlewood
polynomial if $a_j = \pm 1$ for all $j$. We call $\alpha(z)$ selfreciprocal
if $\alpha(z) = z^{n1}\alpha(1/z)$, and call $\alpha(z)$ skewsymmetric if
$n = 2m+1$ and $a_{m+j} = (1)^j a_{mj}$ for all $j$. It has been observed
that Littlewood polynomials with particularly high minimum modulus on
the unit
circle in $\bC$ tend to be skewsymmetric. In this paper, we prove that a
skewsymmetric Littlewood polynomial cannot have any zeros on the unit circle,
as well as providing a new proof of the known result that a selfreciprocal
Littlewood polynomial must have a zero on the unit circle.

Exceptional Sets in Hartogs Domains
Assume that $\Omega$ is a Hartogs domain in $\mathbb{C}^{1+n}$,
defined as $\Omega=\{(z,w)\in\mathbb{C}^{1+n}:z<\mu(w),w\in H\}$, where $H$ is an open set in
$\mathbb{C}^{n}$ and $\mu$ is a continuous function with positive values in $H$ such that $\ln\mu$
is a strongly plurisubharmonic function in $H$. Let $\Omega_{w}=\Omega\cap(\mathbb{C}\times\{w\})$.
For a given set $E$ contained in $H$ of the type $G_{\delta}$ we construct a holomorphic function
$f\in\mathbb{O}(\Omega)$ such that
\[
E=\Bigl\{ w\in\mathbb{C}^{n}:\int_{\Omega_{w}}f(\cdot\,,w)^{2}\,d\mathfrak{L}^{2}=\infty\Bigr\}.

We show that there exists a singular inner function $S$ which is

in the set of all zerofree holomorphic functions in $\mathbb{D}$ bounded by
one.

On Density Conditions for Interpolation in the Ball
In this paper we study interpolating sequences for two related spaces of
holomorphic functions in the unit ball of $\C^n$, $n>1$. We first give density
conditions for a sequence to be interpolating for the class $A^{\infty}$ of
holomorphic functions with polynomial growth. The sufficient condition is
formally identical to the characterizing condition in dimension $1$, whereas the
necessary one goes along the lines of the results given by Li and Taylor for
some spaces of entire functions. In the second part of the paper we show that a
density condition, which for $n=1$ coincides with the characterizing condition
given by Seip, is sufficient for interpolation in the (weighted) Bergman space.

Cercles de remplissage for the Riemann Zeta Function
The celebrated theorem of Picard asserts that each nonconstant entire
function assumes every value infinitely often, with at most one
exception. The Riemann zeta function has this Picard behaviour in a
sequence of discs lying in the critical band and whose diameters tend
to zero. According to the Riemann hypothesis, the value zero would be
this (unique) exceptional value.

On the Smirnov Class Defined by the Maximal Function
H.~O.~Kim has shown that contrary to the case of
$H^p$space, the Smirnov class $M$ defined by the radial maximal
function is essentially smaller than the classical Smirnov class
of the disk. In the paper we show that these two classes have the
same corresponding locally convex structure, {\it i.e.} they have the
same dual spaces and the same Fr\'echet envelopes. We describe a
general form of a continuous linear functional on $M$ and
multiplier from $M$ into $H^p$, $0 < p \leq \infty$.

Perfect NonExtremal Riemann Surfaces
An infinite family of perfect, nonextremal Riemann surfaces
is constructed, the first examples of this type of surfaces.
The examples are based on normal subgroups of the modular group
$\PSL(2,{\sf Z})$ of level $6$. They provide nonEuclidean
analogues to the existence of perfect, nonextremal positive
definite quadratic forms. The analogy uses the function {\it syst\/}
which associates to every Riemann surface $M$ the length of a systole,
which is a shortest closed geodesic of $M$.
