Obstructions to $\mathcal{Z}$-Stability for Unital Simple $C^*$-Algebras
Let $\cZ$ be the unital simple nuclear infinite dimensional $C^*$-algebra which has the same Elliott invariant as $\bbC$, introduced in \cite{JS}. A $C^*$-algebra is called $\cZ$-stable if $A \cong A \otimes \cZ$. In this note we give some necessary conditions for a unital simple $C^*$-algebra to be $\cZ$-stable.

Keywords:simple $C^*$-algebra, $\mathcal{Z}$-stability, weak (un)perforation in $K_0$ group, property $\Gamma$, finiteness

Elliott, George; Fulman, Igor
On Classification of Certain $C^\ast$-Algebras
We consider \cst-algebras which are inductive limits of finite direct sums of copies of $ C([0,1]) \otimes \Otwo$. For such algebras, the lattice of closed two-sided ideals is proved to be a complete invariant.

Kahane-Khinchin's Inequality for Quasi-Norms
We extend the recent results of R.~Lata{\l}a and O.~Gu\'edon about equivalence of $L_q$-norms of logconcave random variables (Kahane-Khinchin's inequality) to the quasi-convex case. We construct examples of quasi-convex bodies $K_n \subset \R$ which demonstrate that this equivalence fails for uniformly distributed vector on $K_n$ (recall that the uniformly distributed vector on a convex body is logconcave). Our examples also show the lack of the exponential decay of the ``tail" volume (for convex bodies such decay was proved by M.~Gromov and V.~Milman).

Exponential Laws for the Nachbin Ported Topology
We show that for $U$ and $V$ balanced open subsets of (Qno) Fr\'echet spaces $E$ and $F$ that we have the topological identity $$ \bigl( {\cal H}(U\times V), \tau_\omega \bigr) = \biggl( {\cal H} \Bigl( U; \bigl( {\cal H}(V), \tau_\omega \bigr) \Bigr), \tau_\omega \biggr). $$ Analogous results for the compact open topology have long been established. We also give an example to show that the (Qno) hypothesis on both $E$ and $F$ is necessary.

Matoušková, Eva
Extensions of Continuous and Lipschitz Functions
We show a result slightly more general than the following. Let $K$ be a compact Hausdorff space, $F$ a closed subset of $K$, and $d$ a lower semi-continuous metric on $K$. Then each continuous function $f$ on $F$ which is Lipschitz in $d$ admits a continuous extension on $K$ which is Lipschitz in $d$. The extension has the same supremum norm and the same Lipschitz constant. As a corollary we get that a Banach space $X$ is reflexive if and only if each bounded, weakly continuous and norm Lipschitz function defined on a weakly closed subset of $X$ admits a weakly continuous, norm Lipschitz extension defined on the entire space $X$.

Keywords:extension, continous, Lipschitz, Banach space

Magajna, Bojan
C$^*$-Convexity and the Numerical Range
If $A$ is a prime C$^*$-algebra, $a \in A$ and $\lambda$ is in the numerical range $W(a)$ of $a$, then for each $\varepsilon > 0$ there exists an element $h \in A$ such that $\norm{h} = 1$ and $\norm{h^* (a-\lambda)h} < \varepsilon$. If $\lambda$ is an extreme point of $W(a)$, the same conclusion holds without the assumption that $A$ is prime. Given any element $a$ in a von Neumann algebra (or in a general C$^*$-algebra) $A$, all normal elements in the weak* closure (the norm closure, respectively) of the C$^*$-convex hull of $a$ are characterized.

The Bockstein Map is Necessary
We construct two non-isomorphic nuclear, stably finite, real rank zero $C^\ast$-algebras $E$ and $E'$ for which there is an isomorphism of ordered groups $\Theta\colon \bigoplus_{n \ge 0} K_\bullet(E;\ZZ/n) \to \bigoplus_{n \ge 0} K_\bullet(E';\ZZ/n)$ which is compatible with all the coefficient transformations. The $C^\ast$-algebras $E$ and $E'$ are not isomorphic since there is no $\Theta$ as above which is also compatible with the Bockstein operations. By tensoring with Cuntz's algebra $\OO_\infty$ one obtains a pair of non-isomorphic, real rank zero, purely infinite $C^\ast$-algebras with similar properties.

Essential Norm and Weak Compactness of Composition Operators on Weighted Banach Spaces of Analytic Functions
Every weakly compact composition operator between weighted Banach spaces $H_v^{\infty}$ of analytic functions with weighted sup-norms is compact. Lower and upper estimates of the essential norm of continuous composition operators are obtained. The norms of the point evaluation functionals on the Banach space $H_v^{\infty}$ are also estimated, thus permitting to get new characterizations of compact composition operators between these spaces.

Boundedness of the $q$-Mean-Square Operator on Vector-Valued Analytic Martingales
We study boundedness properties of the $q$-mean-square operator $S^{(q)}$ on $E$-valued analytic martingales, where $E$ is a complex quasi-Banach space and $2 \leq q < \infty$. We establish that a.s. finiteness of $S^{(q)}$ for every bounded $E$-valued analytic martingale implies strong $(p,p)$-type estimates for $S^{(q)}$ and all $p\in (0,\infty)$. Our results yield new characterizations (in terms of analytic and stochastic properties of the function $S^{(q)}$) of the complex spaces $E$ that admit an equivalent $q$-uniformly PL-convex quasi-norm. We also obtain a vector-valued extension (and a characterization) of part of an observation due to Bourgain and Davis concerning the $L^p$-boundedness of the usual square-function on scalar-valued analytic martingales.

Points of Weak$^\ast$-Norm Continuity in the Unit Ball of the Space $\WC(K,X)^\ast$
For a compact Hausdorff space with a dense set of isolated points, we give a complete description of points of weak$^\ast$-norm continuity in the dual unit ball of the space of Banach space valued functions that are continuous when the range has the weak topology. As an application we give a complete description of points of weak-norm continuity of the unit ball of the space of vector measures when the underlying Banach space has the Radon-Nikodym property.

Instabilité de vecteurs propres d'opérateurs linéaires
We consider some geometric properties of eigenvectors of linear operators on infinite dimensional Hilbert space. It is proved that the property of a family of vectors $(x_n)$ to be eigenvectors $Tx_n= \lambda_n x_n$ ($\lambda_n \noteq \lambda_k$ for $n\noteq k$) of a bounded operator $T$ (admissibility property) is very instable with respect to additive and linear perturbations. For instance, (1)~for the sequence $(x_n+\epsilon_n v_n)_{n\geq k(\epsilon)}$ to be admissible for every admissible $(x_n)$ and for a suitable choice of small numbers $\epsilon_n\noteq 0$ it is necessary and sufficient that the perturbation sequence be eventually scalar: there exist $\gamma_n\in \C$ such that $v_n= \gamma_n v_{k}$ for $n\geq k$ (Theorem~2); (2)~for a bounded operator $A$ to transform admissible families $(x_n)$ into admissible families $(Ax_n)$ it is necessary and sufficient that $A$ be left invertible (Theorem~4).

New characterizations of the reflexivity in terms of the set of norm attaining functionals
As a consequence of results due to Bourgain and Stegall, on a separable Banach space whose unit ball is not dentable, the set of norm attaining functionals has empty interior (in the norm topology). First we show that any Banach space can be renormed to fail this property. Then, our main positive result can be stated as follows: if a separable Banach space $X$ is very smooth or its bidual satisfies the $w^{\ast }$-Mazur intersection property, then either $X$ is reflexive or the set of norm attaining functionals has empty interior, hence the same result holds if $X$ has the Mazur intersection property and so, if the norm of $X$ is Fr\'{e}chet differentiable. However, we prove that smoothness is not a sufficient condition for the same conclusion.

Smooth partitions of unity on Banach spaces

On certain $K$-groups associated with minimal flows
It is known that the Toeplitz algebra associated with any flow which is both minimal and uniquely ergodic always has a trivial $K_1$-group. We show in this note that if the unique ergodicity is dropped, then such $K_1$-group can be non-trivial. Therefore, in the general setting of minimal flows, even the $K$-theoretical index is not sufficient for the classification of Toeplitz operators which are invertible modulo the commutator ideal.

Mazur intersection properties for compact and weakly compact convex sets
Various authors have studied when a Banach space can be renormed so that every weakly compact convex, or less restrictively every compact convex set is an intersection of balls. We first observe that each Banach space can be renormed so that every weakly compact convex set is an intersection of balls, and then we introduce and study properties that are slightly stronger than the preceding two properties respectively.

Caractérisations spectrales du radical et du socle d'une paire de jordan-banach
If $f$ and $g$ are two analytic functions from a domain $D$ of the complex plane into respectively the Banach spaces $V^+$ and $V^-$, we prove that $\lambda\mapsto \Sp\bigl(f(\lambda),g(\lambda)\bigr)$ is an analytic multivalued function. From this derives the subharmonicity of the functions $\lambda\mapsto \rho_V\bigl(f(\lambda),g(\lambda)\bigr)$ and $\lambda\mapsto \log\rho_V\bigl(f(\lambda),g(\lambda)\bigr)$ where $\rho$ denotes the spectral radius. We apply these results to obtain nice caracterizations of the radical and the socle of a Banach Jordan pair, and finally we get an algebraic structural theorem.
