Numerical Semigroups That Are Not Intersections of $d$-Squashed Semigroups
We say that a numerical semigroup is \emph{$d$-squashed} if it can be written in the form $$ S=\frac 1 N \langle a_1,\dots,a_d \rangle \cap \mathbb{Z}$$ for $N,a_1,\dots,a_d$ positive integers with $\gcd(a_1,\dots, a_d)=1$. Rosales and Urbano have shown that a numerical semigroup is 2-squashed if and only if it is proportionally modular. Recent works by Rosales \emph{et al.} give a concrete example of a numerical semigroup that cannot be written as an intersection of $2$-squashed semigroups. We will show the existence of infinitely many numerical semigroups that cannot be written as an intersection of $2$-squashed semigroups. We also will prove the same result for $3$-squashed semigroups. We conjecture that there are numerical semigroups that cannot be written as the intersection of $d$-squashed semigroups for any fixed $d$, and we prove some partial results towards this conjecture.

Covering Discs in Minkowski Planes
We investigate the following version of the circle covering problem in strictly convex (normed or) Minkowski planes: to cover a circle of largest possible diameter by $k$ unit circles. In particular, we study the cases $k=3$, $k=4$, and $k=7$. For $k=3$ and $k=4$, the diameters under consideration are described in terms of side-lengths and circumradii of certain inscribed regular triangles or quadrangles. This yields also simple explanations of geometric meanings that the corresponding homothety ratios have. It turns out that basic notions from Minkowski geometry play an essential role in our proofs, namely Minkowskian bisectors, $d$-segments, and the monotonicity lemma.

Dunford--Pettis Properties and Spaces of Operators
J. Elton used an application of Ramsey theory to show that if $X$ is an infinite dimensional Banach space, then $c_0$ embeds in $X$, $\ell_1$ embeds in $X$, or there is a subspace of $X$ that fails to have the Dunford--Pettis property. Bessaga and Pelczynski showed that if $c_0$ embeds in $X^*$, then $\ell_\infty$ embeds in $X^*$. Emmanuele and John showed that if $c_0$ embeds in $K(X,Y)$, then $K(X,Y)$ is not complemented in $L(X,Y)$. Classical results from Schauder basis theory are used in a study of Dunford--Pettis sets and strong Dunford--Pettis sets to extend each of the preceding theorems. The space $L_{w^*}(X^* , Y)$ of $w^*-w$ continuous operators is also studied.

Keywords:Dunford--Pettis property, Dunford--Pettis set, basic sequence, complemented spaces of operators

A Representation Theorem for Archimedean Quadratic Modules on $*$-Rings
We present a new approach to noncommutative real algebraic geometry based on the representation theory of $C^\ast$-algebras. An important result in commutative real algebraic geometry is Jacobi's representation theorem for archimedean quadratic modules on commutative rings. We show that this theorem is a consequence of the Gelfand--Naimark representation theorem for commutative $C^\ast$-algebras. A noncommutative version of Gelfand--Naimark theory was studied by I. Fujimoto. We use his results to generalize Jacobi's theorem to associative rings with involution.

Right and Left Weak Approximation Properties in Banach Spaces
New necessary and sufficient conditions are established for Banach spaces to have the approximation property; these conditions are easier to check than the known ones. A shorter proof of a result of Grothendieck is presented, and some properties of a weak version of the approximation property are addressed.

The Invariant Subspace Problem for Non-Archimedean Banach Spaces
It is proved that every infinite-dimensional non-archimedean Banach space of countable type admits a linear continuous operator without a non-trivial closed invariant subspace. This solves a problem stated by A.~C.~M. van Rooij and W.~H. Schikhof in 1992.

Vanishing Theorems in Colombeau Algebras of Generalized Functions
Using a canonical linear embedding of the algebra ${\mathcal G}^{\infty}(\Omega)$ of Colombeau generalized functions in the space of $\overline{\C}$-valued $\C$-linear maps on the space ${\mathcal D}(\Omega)$ of smooth functions with compact support, we give vanishing conditions for functions and linear integral operators of class ${\mathcal G}^\infty$. These results are then applied to the zeros of holomorphic generalized functions in dimension greater than one.

$C^{\ast}$-Algebras Associated with Mauldin--Williams Graphs
A Mauldin--Williams graph $\mathcal{M}$ is a generalization of an iterated function system by a directed graph. Its invariant set $K$ plays the role of the self-similar set. We associate a $C^{*}$-algebra $\mathcal{O}_{\mathcal{M}}(K)$ with a Mauldin--Williams graph $\mathcal{M}$ and the invariant set $K$, laying emphasis on the singular points. We assume that the underlying graph $G$ has no sinks and no sources. If $\mathcal{M}$ satisfies the open set condition in $K$, and $G$ is irreducible and is not a cyclic permutation, then the associated $C^{*}$-algebra $\mathcal{O}_{\mathcal{M}}(K)$ is simple and purely infinite. We calculate the $K$-groups for some examples including the inflation rule of the Penrose tilings.

Cyclic Vectors in Some Weighted $L^p$ Spaces of Entire Functions
In this paper, we generalize a result recently obtained by the author. We characterize the cyclic vectors in $\Lp$. Let $f\in\Lp$ and $f\poly$ be contained in the space. We show that $f$ is non-vanishing if and only if $f$ is cyclic.

Quantum Multiple Construction of Subfactors
We construct the quantum $s$-tuple subfactors for an AFD II$_{1}$ subfactor with finite index and depth, for an arbitrary natural number $s$. This is a generalization of the quantum multiple subfactors by Erlijman and Wenzl, which in turn generalized the quantum double construction of a subfactor for the case that the original subfactor gives rise to a braided tensor category. In this paper we give a multiple construction for a subfactor with a weaker condition than braidedness of the bimodule system.

Duda, Jakub
On Gâteaux Differentiability of Pointwise Lipschitz Mappings
We prove that for every function $f\from X\to Y$, where $X$ is a separable Banach space and $Y$ is a Banach space with RNP, there exists a set $A\in\tilde\mcA$ such that $f$ is G\^ateaux differentiable at all $x\in S(f)\setminus A$, where $S(f)$ is the set of points where $f$ is pointwise-Lipschitz. This improves a result of Bongiorno. As a corollary, we obtain that every $K$-monotone function on a separable Banach space is Hadamard differentiable outside of a set belonging to $\tilde\mcC$; this improves a result due to Borwein and Wang. Another corollary is that if $X$ is Asplund, $f\from X\to\R$ cone monotone, $g\from X\to\R$ continuous convex, then there exists a point in $X$, where $f$ is Hadamard differentiable and $g$ is Fr\'echet differentiable.

Rearrangement-Invariant Functionals with Applications to Traces on Symmetrically Normed Ideals
We present a construction of singular rearrangement invariant functionals on Marcinkiewicz function/operator spaces. The functionals constructed differ from all previous examples in the literature in that they fail to be symmetric. In other words, the functional $\phi$ fails the condition that if $x\pprec y$ (Hardy-Littlewood-Polya submajorization) and $0\leq x,y$, then $0\le \phi(x)\le \phi(y).$ We apply our results to singular traces on symmetric operator spaces (in particular on symmetrically-normed ideals of compact operators), answering questions raised by Guido and Isola.

Hin\v cin's Theorem for Multiplicative Free Convolution
Hin\v cin proved that any limit law, associated with a triangular array of infinitesimal random variables, is infinitely divisible. The analogous result for additive free convolution was proved earlier by Bercovici and Pata. In this paper we will prove corresponding results for the multiplicative free convolution of measures definded on the unit circle and on the positive half-line.

On Axiomatizability of Non-Commutative $L_p$-Spaces
It is shown that Schatten $p$-classes of operators between Hilbert spaces of different (infinite) dimensions have ultrapowers which are (completely) isometric to non-commutative $L_p$-spaces. On the other hand, these Schatten classes are not themselves isomorphic to non-commutative $L_p$ spaces. As a consequence, the class of non-commutative $L_p$-spaces is not axiomatizable in the first-order language developed by Henson and Iovino for normed space structures, neither in the signature of Banach spaces, nor in that of operator spaces. Other examples of the same phenomenon are presented that belong to the class of corners of non-commutative $L_p$-spaces. For $p=1$ this last class, which is the same as the class of preduals of ternary rings of operators, is itself axiomatizable in the signature of operator spaces.

On the Existence of Asymptotic-$l_p$ Structures in Banach Spaces
It is shown that if a Banach space is saturated with infinite dimensional subspaces in which all ``special" $n$-tuples of vectors are equivalent with constants independent of $n$-tuples and of $n$, then the space contains asymptotic-$l_p$ subspaces for some $1 \leq p \leq \infty$. This extends a result by Figiel, Frankiewicz, Komorowski and Ryll-Nardzewski.

On the Lack of Inverses to $C^*$-Extensions Related to Property T Groups
Using ideas of S. Wassermann on non-exact $C^*$-algebras and property T groups, we show that one of his examples of non-invertible $C^*$-extensions is not semi-invertible. To prove this, we show that a certain element vanishes in the asymptotic tensor product. We also show that a modification of the example gives a $C^*$-extension which is not even invertible up to homotopy.

AF-Skeletons and Real Rank Zero Algebras with the Corona Factorization Property
Let $A$ be a stable, separable, real rank zero $C^{*}$-algebra, and suppose that $A$ has an AF-skeleton with only finitely many extreme traces. Then the corona algebra ${\mathcal M}(A)/A$ is purely infinite in the sense of Kirchberg and R\o rdam, which implies that $A$ has the corona factorization property.

Basener, Richard F.
Higher Dimensional Spaces of Functions on the Spectrum of a Uniform Algebra
In this paper we introduce a nested family of spaces of continuous functions defined on the spectrum of a uniform algebra. The smallest space in the family is the uniform algebra itself. In the ``finite dimensional'' case, from some point on the spaces will be the space of all continuous complex-valued functions on the spectrum. These spaces are defined in terms of solutions to the nonlinear Cauchy--Riemann equations as introduced by the author in 1976, so they are not generally linear spaces of functions. However, these spaces do shed light on the higher dimensional properties of a uniform algebra. In particular, these spaces are directly related to the generalized Shilov boundary of the uniform algebra (as defined by the author and, independently, by Sibony in the early 1970s).
