Non-Discrete Complex Hyperbolic Triangle Groups of Type $(n,n, \infty;k)$
A complex hyperbolic triangle group is a group generated by three involutions fixing complex lines in complex hyperbolic space. Our purpose in this paper is to improve a previous result and to discuss discreteness of complex hyperbolic triangle groups of type $(n,n,\infty;k)$.

A Note on Randers Metrics of Scalar Flag Curvature
Some families of Randers metrics of scalar flag curvature are studied in this paper. Explicit examples that are neither locally projectively flat nor of isotropic $S$-curvature are given. Certain Randers metrics with Einstein $\alpha$ are considered and proved to be complex. Three dimensional Randers manifolds, with $\alpha$ having constant scalar curvature, are studied.

Projectively Flat Fourth Root Finsler Metrics
In this paper, we study locally projectively flat fourth root Finsler metrics and their generalized metrics. We prove that if they are irreducible, then they must be locally Minkowskian.

An Isospectral Deformation on an Infranil-Orbifold
We construct a Laplace isospectral deformation of metrics on an orbifold quotient of a nilmanifold. Each orbifold in the deformation contains singular points with order two isotropy. Isospectrality is obtained by modifying a generalization of Sunada's theorem due to DeTurck and Gordon.

Einstein-Like Lorentz Metrics and Three-Dimensional Curvature Homogeneity of Order One

Asymptotics of Perimeter-Minimizing Partitions
We prove that the least perimeter $P(n)$ of a partition of a smooth, compact Riemannian surface into $n$ regions of equal area $A$ is asymptotic to $n/2$ times the perimeter of a planar regular hexagon of area $A$. Along the way, we derive tighter estimates for flat tori, Klein bottles, truncated cylinders, and Möbius bands.

Semi-Slant Submanifolds of an Almost Paracontact Metric Manifold
In this paper, we define and study the geometry of semi-slant submanifolds of an almost paracontact metric manifold. We give some characterizations for a submanifold to be semi-slant submanifold to be semi-slant product and obtain integrability conditions for the distributions involved in the definition of a semi-slant submanifold.

Holomorphic 2-Forms and Vanishing Theorems for Gromov--Witten Invariants
On a compact K\"{a}hler manifold $X$ with a holomorphic 2-form $\a$, there is an almost complex structure associated with $\a$. We show how this implies vanishing theorems for the Gromov--Witten invariants of $X$. This extends the approach used by Parker and the author for K\"{a}hler surfaces to higher dimensions.

On Projectively Flat $(\alpha,\beta)$-metrics
The solutions to Hilbert's Fourth Problem in the regular case are projectively flat Finsler metrics. In this paper, we consider the so-called $(\alpha,\beta)$-metrics defined by a Riemannian metric $\alpha$ and a $1$-form $\beta$, and find a necessary and sufficient condition for such metrics to be projectively flat in dimension $n \geq 3$.

Coupled Vortex Equations on Complete Kähler Manifolds
In this paper, we first investigate the Dirichlet problem for coupled vortex equations. Secondly, we give existence results for solutions of the coupled vortex equations on a class of complete noncompact K\"ahler manifolds which include simply-connected strictly negative curved manifolds, Hermitian symmetric spaces of noncompact type and strictly pseudo-convex domains equipped with the Bergmann metric.

Among them, homogeneous real hypersurfaces of type $(A)$ in a complex projective or hyperbolic space are characterized as those whose structure Jacobi operator commutes with the shape operator.

On Willmore's Inequality for Submanifolds
Let $M$ be an $m$ dimensional submanifold in the Euclidean space ${\mathbf R}^n$ and $H$ be the mean curvature of $M$. We obtain some low geometric estimates of the total square mean curvature $\int_M H^2 d\sigma$. The low bounds are geometric invariants involving the volume of $M$, the total scalar curvature of $M$, the Euler characteristic and the circumscribed ball of $M$.

Equivariant Cohomology of $S^{1}$-Actions on $4$-Manifolds
Let $M$ be a symplectic $4$-dimensional manifold equipped with a Hamiltonian circle action with isolated fixed points. We describe a method for computing its integral equivariant cohomology in terms of fixed point data. We give some examples of these computations.

On Lagrangian Catenoids
Recently I. Castro and F. Urbano introduced the Lagrangian catenoid. Topologically, it is $\mathbb R\times S^{n-1}$ and its induced metric is conformally flat, but not cylindrical. Their result is that if a Lagrangian minimal submanifold in ${\mathbb C}^n$ is foliated by round $(n-1)$-spheres, it is congruent to a Lagrangian catenoid. Here we study the question of conformally flat, minimal, Lagrangian submanifolds in ${\mathbb C}^n$. The general problem is formidable, but we first show that such a submanifold resembles a Lagrangian catenoid in that its Schouten tensor has an eigenvalue of multiplicity one. Then, restricting to the case of at most two eigenvalues, we show that the submanifold is either flat and totally geodesic or is homothetic to (a piece of) the Lagrangian catenoid.

Hermitian Harmonic Maps into Convex Balls
In this paper, we consider Hermitian harmonic maps from Hermitian manifolds into convex balls. We prove that there exist no non-trivial Hermitian harmonic maps from closed Hermitian manifolds into convex balls, and we use the heat flow method to solve the Dirichlet problem for Hermitian harmonic maps when the domain is a compact Hermitian manifold with non-empty boundary.

Polygons with Prescribed Gauss Map in Hadamard Spaces and Euclidean Buildings
We show that given a stable weighted configuration on the asymptotic boundary of a locally compact Hadamard space, there is a polygon with Gauss map prescribed by the given weighted configuration. Moreover, the same result holds for semistable configurations on arbitrary Euclidean buildings.
