Normal Extensions of Representations of Abelian Semigroups
A commuting family of subnormal operators need
not have a commuting normal extension. We study when a representation
on an abelian semigroup can be extended to a normal representation,
and show that it suffices to extend the set of generators to
commuting normals. We also extend a result due to Athavale to
representations on abelian lattice ordered semigroups.

CesÃ ro Operators on the Hardy Spaces of the HalfPlane
In this article we study the CesÃ ro
operator
$$
\mathcal{C}(f)(z)=\frac{1}{z}\int_{0}^{z}f(\zeta)\,d\zeta,
$$
and its companion operator $\mathcal{T}$ on Hardy spaces of the
upper half plane. We identify $\mathcal{C}$ and $\mathcal{T}$ as
resolvents for appropriate semigroups of composition operators and we
find the norm and the spectrum in each case. The relation of
$\mathcal{C}$ and $\mathcal{T}$ with the corresponding Ces\`{a}ro
operators on Lebesgue spaces $L^p(\mathbb R)$ of the boundary line is also
discussed.

Generalized Solution of the Photon Transport Problem
The purpose of this paper is to show the existence of a
generalized solution of the photon transport problem. By means of the theory of
equicontinuous $C_{0}$semigroup on a sequentially complete locally convex
topological vector space we show that the perturbed abstract Cauchy problem
has a unique solution when the perturbation operator and the forcing term
function satisfy certain conditions. A consequence of the abstract result is
that it can be directly applied to obtain a generalized solution of the photon
transport problem.

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 $\BC$.
