Representing a Product System Representation as a Contractive Semigroup and Applications to Regular Isometric Dilations
In this paper we propose a new technical tool for analyzing representations of Hilbert $C^*$-product systems. Using this tool, we give a new proof that every doubly commuting representation over $\mathbb{N}^k$ has a regular isometric dilation, and we also prove sufficient conditions for the existence of a regular isometric dilation of representations over more general subsemigroups of $\mathbb R_{+}^k$.

Separating Maps between Spaces of Vector-Valued Absolutely Continuous Functions
In this paper we give a description of separating or disjointness preserving linear bijections on spaces of vector-valued absolutely continuous functions defined on compact subsets of the real line. We obtain that they are continuous and biseparating in the finite-dimensional case. The infinite-dimensional case is also studied.

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.

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 ``non-Euclidean 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 non-vanishing if and only if $f$ is cyclic.

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.

Classification of Finite Group-Frames and Super-Frames
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.

It is shown that there exists an inner function $I$ defined on the unit ball ${\bf B}^n$ of ${\mathbb C}^n$ such that each function holomorphic on ${\bf B}^n$ and bounded by $1$ can be approximated by ``non-Euclidean translates" of $I$.

The Index Theory Associated to a Non-Finite 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 non-finite 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 non-normal maps.

$C^*$-Algebras and Factorization Through Diagonal Operators
Let $\cal A$ be a $C^*$-algebra and $E$ be a Banach space with the Radon-Nikodym 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

High Frequency Resolvent Estimates and Energy Decay of Solutions to the Wave Equation

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, rank-one, 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 finite-dimensional 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 Non-Trace Class Perturbations
Voiculescu has previously established the uniqueness of the wave operator for the problem of $\mathcal{C}^{(0)}$-perturbation of commuting tuples of self-adjoint 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 trace-class perturbation.)
