We prove that every proper Segal algebra of a SIN group is not approximately amenable.

ZL-amenability Constants of Finite Groups with Two Character Degrees
We calculate the exact amenability constant of the centre of $\ell^1(G)$ when $G$ is one of the following classes of finite group: dihedral; extraspecial; or Frobenius with abelian complement and kernel. This is done using a formula which applies to all finite groups with two character degrees. In passing, we answer in the negative a question raised in work of the third author with Azimifard and Spronk (J. Funct. Anal. 2009).

Injective Convolution Operators on l(Γ) are Surjective
Let $\Gamma$ be a discrete group and let $f \in \ell^{1}(\Gamma)$. We observe that if the natural convolution operator $\rho_f: \ell^{\infty}(\Gamma)\to \ell^{\infty}(\Gamma)$ is injective, then $f$ is invertible in $\ell^{1}(\Gamma)$. Our proof simplifies and generalizes calculations in a preprint of Deninger and Schmidt by appealing to the direct finiteness of the algebra $\ell^{1}(\Gamma)$. We give simple examples to show that in general one cannot replace $\ell^{\infty}$ with $\ell^{p}$, $1\leq p< \infty$, nor with $L^{\infty}(G)$ for nondiscrete $G$. Finally, we consider the problem of extending the main result to the case of weighted convolution operators on $\Gamma$, and give some partial results.

Janzen, David
F{\o}lner Nets for Semidirect Products of Amenable Groups
For unimodular semidirect products of locally compact amenable groups $N$ and $H$, we show that one can always construct a F{\o}lner net of the form $(A_\alpha \times B_\beta)$ for $G$, where $(A_\alpha)$ is a strong form of F{\o}lner net for $N$ and $(B_\beta)$ is any F{\o}lner net for $H$. Applications to the Heisenberg and Euclidean motion groups are provided.

Simplicial Cohomology of Some Semigroup Algebras
In this paper, we investigate the higher simplicial cohomology groups of the convolution algebra $\ell^1(S)$ for various semigroups $S$. The classes of semigroups considered are semilattices, Clifford semigroups, regular Rees semigroups and the additive semigroups of integers greater than $a$ for some integer $a$. Our results are of two types: in some cases, we show that some cohomology groups are $0$, while in some other cases, we show that some cohomology groups are Banach spaces.

Keywords:simplicial cohomology, semigroup algebra

Biprojectivity and Biflatness for Convolution Algebras of Nuclear Operators
For a locally compact group $G$, the convolution product on the space $\nN(L^p(G))$ of nuclear operators was defined by Neufang \cite{Neuf_PhD}. We study homological properties of the convolution algebra $\nN(L^p(G))$ and relate them to some properties of the group $G$, such as compactness, finiteness, discreteness, and amenability.

Derivations from totally ordered semigroup algebras into their duals
For a well-behaved 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
