 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. Keywords:Euclidean buildings, Hadamard spaces, polygonsCategory:53C20

 The Spectrum and Isometric Embeddings of Surfaces of Revolution A sharp upper bound on the first $S^{1}$ invariant eigenvalue of the Laplacian for $S^1$ invariant metrics on $S^2$ is used to find obstructions to the existence of $S^1$ equivariant isometric embeddings of such metrics in $(\R^3,\can)$. As a corollary we prove: If the first four distinct eigenvalues have even multiplicities then the metric cannot be equivariantly, isometrically embedded in $(\R^3,\can)$. This leads to generalizations of some classical results in the theory of surfaces. Categories:58J50, 58J53, 53C20, 35P15

 Real Hypersurfaces in Complex Two-Plane Grassmannians with Vanishing Lie Derivative In this paper we give a characterization of real hypersurfaces of type $A$ in a complex two-plane Grassmannian $G_2(\mathbb{C}^{m+2})$ which are tubes over totally geodesic $G_2(\mathbb{C}^{m+1})$ in $G_2(\mathbb{C}^{m+2})$ in terms of the {\it vanishing Lie derivative\/} of the shape operator $A$ along the direction of the Reeb vector field $\xi$.

 Holomorphic Frames for Weakly Converging Holomorphic Vector Bundles Using a modification of Webster's proof of the Newlander--Nirenberg theorem, it is shown that, for a weakly convergent sequence of integrable unitary connections on a complex vector bundle over a complex manifold, there is a subsequence of local holomorphic frames that converges strongly in an appropriate Holder class.

 A Note on Lagrangian Loci of Quotients We study Hamiltonian actions of compact groups in the presence of compatible involutions. We show that the Lagrangian fixed point set on the symplectically reduced space is isomorphic to the disjoint union of the involutively reduced spaces corresponding to involutions on the group strongly inner to the given one. Our techniques imply that the solution to the eigenvalues of a sum problem for a given real form can be reduced to the quasi-split real form in the same inner class. We also consider invariant quotients with respect to the corresponding real form of the complexified group. Keywords:Quotients, involutions, real forms, Lagrangian lociCategory:53D20

 On Negatively Curved Finsler Manifolds of Scalar Curvature In this paper, we prove a global rigidity theorem for negatively curved Finsler metrics on a compact manifold of dimension $n \geq 3$. We show that for such a Finsler manifold, if the flag curvature is a scalar function on the tangent bundle, then the Finsler metric is of Randers type. We also study the case when the Finsler metric is locally projectively flat Category:53C60

 On Harmonic Theory in Flows Recently [8], a harmonic theory was developed for a compact contact manifold from the viewpoint of the transversal geometry of contact flow. A contact flow is a typical example of geodesible flow. As a natural generalization of the contact flow, the present paper develops a harmonic theory for various flows on compact manifolds. We introduce the notions of $H$-harmonic and $H^*$-harmonic spaces associated to a H\"ormander flow. We also introduce the notions of basic harmonic spaces associated to a weak basic flow. One of our main results is to show that in the special case of isometric flow these harmonic spaces are isomorphic to the cohomology spaces of certain complexes. Moreover, we find an obstruction for a geodesible flow to be isometric. Keywords:contact structure, geodesible flow, isometric flow, basic cohomologyCategories:53C20, 57R30

 Rigidity of Hamiltonian Actions This paper studies the following question: Given an $\omega'$-symplectic action of a Lie group on a manifold $M$ which coincides, as a smooth action, with a Hamiltonian $\omega$-action, when is this action a Hamiltonian $\omega'$-action? Using a result of Morse-Bott theory presented in Section~2, we show in Section~3 of this paper that such an action is in fact a Hamiltonian $\omega'$-action, provided that $M$ is compact and that the Lie group is compact and connected. This result was first proved by Lalonde-McDuff-Polterovich in 1999 as a consequence of a more general theory that made use of hard geometric analysis. In this paper, we prove it using classical methods only. Categories:53D05, 37J25

 On Frankel's Theorem In this paper we show that two minimal hypersurfaces in a manifold with positive Ricci curvature must intersect. This is then generalized to show that in manifolds with positive Ricci curvature in the integral sense two minimal hypersurfaces must be close to each other. We also show what happens if a manifold with nonnegative Ricci curvature admits two nonintersecting minimal hypersurfaces. Keywords:Frankel's TheoremCategory:53C20

 The Local MÃ¶bius Equation and Decomposition Theorems in Riemannian Geometry A partial differential equation, the local M\"obius equation, is introduced in Riemannian geometry which completely characterizes the local twisted product structure of a Riemannian manifold. Also the characterizations of warped product and product structures of Riemannian manifolds are made by the local M\"obius equation and an additional partial differential equation.

 On Strongly Convex Indicatrices in Minkowski Geometry The geometry of indicatrices is the foundation of Minkowski geometry. A strongly convex indicatrix in a vector space is a strongly convex hypersurface. It admits a Riemannian metric and has a distinguished invariant---(Cartan) torsion. We prove the existence of non-trivial strongly convex indicatrices with vanishing mean torsion and discuss the relationship between the mean torsion and the Riemannian curvature tensor for indicatrices of Randers type.

 Finite Groups Generated by Involutions on Lagrangian Planes of $\mathbf{C}^2$ We classify finite subgroups of $\SO(4)$ generated by anti-unitary involutions. They correspond to involutions fixing pointwise a Lagrangian plane. Explicit descriptions of the finite groups and the configurations of Lagrangian planes are obtained. Categories:22E40, 53D99

CMB 2001 (vol 44 pp. 129) Currás-Bosch, Carlos  LinÃ©arisation symplectique en dimension 2 In this paper the germ of neighborhood of a compact leaf in a Lagrangian foliation is symplectically classified when the compact leaf is$\bT^2$, the affine structure induced by the Lagrangian foliation on the leaf is complete, and the holonomy of$\bT^2$in the foliation linearizes. The germ of neighborhood is classified by a function, depending on one transverse coordinate, this function is related to the affine structure of the nearly compact leaves.

Quantization of Bending Deformations of Polygons In$\mathbb{E}^3$, Hypergeometric Integrals and the Gassner Representation The Hamiltonian potentials of the bending deformations of$n$-gons in$\E^3$studied in \cite{KM} and \cite{Kl} give rise to a Hamiltonian action of the Malcev Lie algebra$\p_n$of the pure braid group$P_n$on the moduli space$M_r$of$n$-gon linkages with the side-lengths$r= (r_1,\dots, r_n)$in$\E^3$. If$e\in M_r$is a singular point we may linearize the vector fields in$\p_n$at$e$. This linearization yields a flat connection$\nabla$on the space$\C^n_*$of$n$distinct points on$\C$. We show that the monodromy of$\nabla$is the dual of a quotient of a specialized reduced Gassner representation. Categories:53D30, 53D50 74. CMB 2000 (vol 43 pp. 440) Koufogiorgos, Themis; Tsichlias, Charalambos  On the Existence of a New Class of Contact Metric Manifolds A new class of 3-dimensional contact metric manifolds is found.

CMB 2000 (vol 43 pp. 427) Ivey, Thomas A.  Helices, Hasimoto Surfaces and BÃ¤cklund Transformations Travelling wave solutions to the vortex filament flow generated by elastica produce surfaces in$\R^3$that carry mutually orthogonal foliations by geodesics and by helices. These surfaces are classified in the special cases where the helices are all congruent or are all generated by a single screw motion. The first case yields a new characterization for the B\"acklund transformation for constant torsion curves in$\R^3$, previously derived from the well-known transformation for pseudospherical surfaces. A similar investigation for surfaces in$H^3$or$S^3\$ leads to a new transformation for constant torsion curves in those spaces that is also derived from pseudospherical surfaces.
