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.

Group Cohomology and $L^p$Cohomology of Finitely Generated Groups Let $G$ be a finitely generated, infinite group, let $p>1$, and let
$L^p(G)$ denote the Banach space $\{ \sum_{x\in G} a_xx \mid \sum_{x\in
G} a_x ^p < \infty \}$. In this paper we will study the first
cohomology group of $G$ with coefficients in $L^p(G)$, and the first
reduced $L^p$cohomology space of $G$. Most of our results will be for a
class of groups that contains all finitely generated, infinite nilpotent
groups.

Diffraction of Weighted Lattice Subsets A Dirac comb of point measures in Euclidean space with bounded
complex weights that is supported on a lattice $\varGamma$ inherits
certain general properties from the lattice structure. In
particular, its autocorrelation admits a factorization into a
continuous function and the uniform lattice Dirac comb, and its
diffraction measure is periodic, with the dual lattice
$\varGamma^*$ as lattice of periods. This statement remains true
in the setting of a locally compact Abelian group whose topology
has a countable base.

Weak Convergence Is Not Strong Convergence For Amenable Groups Let $G$ be an infinite discrete amenable group or a nondiscrete
amenable group. It is shown how to construct a net $(f_\alpha)$ of
positive, normalized functions in $L_1(G)$ such that the net converges weak*
to invariance but does not converge strongly to invariance. The solution of
certain linear equations determined by colorings of the Cayley graphs of the
group are central to this construction.

Maximal Operators and Cantor Sets We consider maximal operators in the plane, defined by Cantor sets of
directions, and show such operators are not bounded on $L^2$ if the
Cantor set has positive Hausdorff dimension.

Heat Kernels of Lorentz Cones We obtain an explicit formula for heat kernels of Lorentz cones, a
family of classical symmetric cones. By this formula, the heat
kernel of a Lorentz cone is expressed by a function of time $t$ and
two eigenvalues of an element in the cone. We obtain also upper and
lower bounds for the heat kernels of Lorentz cones.

A note on $H^1$ multipliers for locally compact Vilenkin groups Kitada and then Onneweer and Quek have investigated multiplier
operators on Hardy spaces over locally compact Vilenkin groups. In
this note, we provide an improvement to their results for the Hardy
space $H^1$ and provide examples showing that our result applies to a
significantly larger group of multipliers.

A general approach to LittlewoodPaley theorems for orthogonal families A general lacunary LittlewoodPaley type theorem is proved, which applies in a
variety of settings including Jacobi polynomials in $[0, 1]$, $\su$, and the
usual classical trigonometric series in $[0, 2 \pi)$. The theorem is used to
derive new results for $\LP$ multipliers on $\su$ and Jacobi $\LP$ multipliers.

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.

Derivations from totally ordered semigroup algebras into their duals For a wellbehaved measure $\mu$, on a locally compact
totally ordered set $X$, with continuous part $\mu_c$, we make
$L^p(X,\mu_c)$
into a commutative Banach bimodule over the totally ordered
semigroup algebra
$L^p(X,\mu)$, in such a way that the natural surjection from the algebra
to the module is a bounded derivation. This gives rise to bounded
derivations from $L^p(X,\mu)$
into its dual module and in particular shows that if $\mu_c$ is not
identically zero then $L^p(X,\mu)$ is not weakly
amenable. We show that all bounded derivations from $L^1(X,\mu)$
into its dual module arise in this way and also describe all bounded
derivations from
$L^p(X,\mu)$ into its dual for $1
