Linear Maps on $C^*$Algebras Preserving the Set of Operators that are Invertible in $\mathcal{A}/\mathcal{I}$
For $C^*$algebras $\mathcal{A}$ of real rank zero, we describe
linear maps $\phi$ on $\mathcal{A}$ that are surjective up to ideals
$\mathcal{I}$, and $\pi(A)$ is invertible in $\mathcal{A}/\mathcal{I}$ if and only if
$\pi(\phi(A))$ is invertible in $\mathcal{A}/\mathcal{I}$, where $A\in\mathcal{A}$ and
$\pi:\mathcal{A}\to\mathcal{A}/\mathcal{I}$ is the quotient map. We also consider similar
linear maps preserving zero products on the Calkin algebra.

Separating Maps between Spaces of VectorValued Absolutely Continuous Functions
In this paper we give a description of separating or disjointness preserving linear bijections on spaces of vectorvalued absolutely continuous functions defined on compact subsets of the real line. We obtain that they are continuous and biseparating in the finitedimensional case. The infinitedimensional case is also studied.

The Invariant Subspace Problem for NonArchimedean Banach Spaces
It is proved that every infinitedimensional
nonarchimedean Banach space of countable type admits a linear
continuous operator without a nontrivial closed invariant
subspace. This solves a problem stated by A.~C.~M. van Rooij and
W.~H. Schikhof in 1992.

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
$H^\infty(\bn)$.

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 nonvanishing if and only if $f$ is cyclic.

RearrangementInvariant 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 $x\pprec y$
(HardyLittlewoodPolya 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
symmetricallynormed ideals of compact operators), answering
questions raised by Guido and Isola.

Classification of Finite GroupFrames and SuperFrames
Given a finite group $G$, we examine the classification of all
frame representations of $G$ and the classification of all
$G$frames, \emph{i.e.,} frames induced by group representations of $G$.
We show that the exact number of equivalence classes of $G$frames
and the exact number of frame representations can be explicitly
calculated. We also discuss how to calculate the largest number
$L$ such that there exists an $L$tuple of strongly disjoint
$G$frames.

A Double Triangle Operator Algebra From $SL_2(\R)$
We consider the w$^*$closed operator algebra $\cA_+$ generated
by the image of the semigroup $SL_2(\R_+)$ under a unitary representation
$\rho$ of $SL_2(\R)$ on the Hilbert~space $L_2(\R)$.
We show that $\cA_+$ is a reflexive operator algebra and
$\cA_+=\Alg\cD$ where $\cD$ is a double triangle subspace
lattice. Surprisingly, $\cA_+$ is also generated as a
w$^*$closed algebra by the image under $\rho$ of a strict
subsemigroup of $SL_2(\R_+)$.

Toeplitz Algebras and Extensions of\\Irrational Rotation Algebras
For a given irrational number $\theta$, we define Toeplitz operators with
symbols in the irrational rotation algebra ${\mathcal A}_\theta$,
and we show that the $C^*$algebra $\mathcal T({\mathcal
A}_\theta)$ generated by these Toeplitz operators is an extension
of ${\mathcal A}_\theta$ by the algebra of compact operators. We
then use these extensions to explicitly exhibit generators of the
group $KK^1({\mathcal A}_\theta,\mathbb C)$. We also prove an
index theorem for $\mathcal T({\mathcal A}_\theta)$ that
generalizes the standard index theorem for Toeplitz operators on
the circle.

The Index Theory Associated to a NonFinite Trace on a $C^\ast$Algebra
The index theory considered in this paper, a
generalisation of the classical Fredholm index theory, is obtained
in terms of a nonfinite trace on a unital $C^\ast$algebra. We relate
it to the index theory of M.~Breuer, which is developed in a
von~Neumann algebra setting, by means of a representation theorem.
We show how our new index theory can be used to obtain an index
theorem for Toeplitz operators on the compact group $\mathbf{U}(2)$,
where the classical index theory does not give any interesting result.

On the Ranges of Bimodule Projections
We develop a symbol calculus for normal bimodule maps over a masa
that is the natural analogue of the Schur product theory. Using
this calculus we are easily able to give a complete description of
the ranges of contractive normal bimodule idempotents that avoids
the theory of J*algebras.
We prove that if $P$ is a normal
bimodule idempotent and $\P\ < 2/\sqrt{3}$ then $P$ is a
contraction. We finish with some attempts at extending the symbol
calculus to nonnormal maps.

$C^*$Algebras and Factorization Through Diagonal Operators
Let $\cal A$ be a $C^*$algebra and $E$ be a Banach space with
the RadonNikodym property. We prove that if $j$ is an embedding
of $E$ into an injective Banach space then for every absolutely
summing operator $T:\mathcal{A}\longrightarrow E$, the composition
$j \circ T$ factors through a diagonal operator from $l^{2}$ into
$l^{1}$. In particular, $T$ factors through a Banach space with
the Schur property. Similarly, we prove that for $2

A Geometric Characterization of Nonnegative Bands
A band is a semigroup of idempotent operators. A nonnegative band
$\cls$ in $\clb(\cll^2 (\clx))$ having at least one element of finite
rank and with rank $(S) > 1 $ for all $S$ in $\cls$ is known to have a
special kind of common invariant subspace which is termed
a standard subspace (defined below).
Such bands are called decomposable. Decomposability has helped to
understand the structure of nonnegative bands with constant finite
rank. In this paper, a geometric characterization of maximal,
rankone, indecomposable nonnegative bands is obtained which
facilitates the understanding of their geometric structure.

Near Triangularizability Implies Triangularizability
In this paper we consider collections of
compact operators on a real or
complex Banach space including linear operators
on finitedimensional vector spaces. We show
that such a collection is simultaneously
triangularizable if and only if it is arbitrarily
close to a simultaneously triangularizable
collection of compact operators. As an application
of these results we obtain an invariant subspace
theorem for certain bounded operators. We
further prove that in finite dimensions near
reducibility implies reducibility whenever
the ground field is $\BR$ or $\BC$.

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.

Invariant Subspaces on $\mathbb{T}^N$ and $\mathbb{R}^N$
Let $N$ be an integer which is larger than one. In this paper we
study invariant subspaces of $L^2 (\mathbb{T}^N)$ under the double
commuting condition. A main result is an $N$dimensional version of
the theorem proved by Mandrekar and Nakazi. As an application of this
result, we have an $N$dimensional version of Lax's theorem.

On the Uniqueness of Wave Operators Associated With NonTrace Class Perturbations
Voiculescu has previously established the uniqueness of the wave operator
for the problem of $\mathcal{C}^{(0)}$perturbation of commuting tuples
of selfadjoint operators in the case where the norm ideal $\mathcal{C}$
has the property $\lim_{n\rightarrow\infty} n^{1/2}\P_n\_{\mathcal{C}}=0$,
where $\{P_n\}$ is any sequence of orthogonal projections with $\rank(P_n)=n$.
We prove that the same uniqueness result holds true so long as $\mathcal{C}$
is not the trace class. (It is well known that there is no such uniqueness
in the case of traceclass perturbation.)
