Correction to "Infinite Dimensional DeWitt Supergroups and Their Bodies" The Theorem below is a correction to Theorem
3.5 in the article
entitled " Infinite Dimensional DeWitt Supergroups and Their
Bodies" published
in Canad. Math. Bull. Vol. 57 (2) 2014 pp. 283-288. Only part
(iii) of that Theorem
requires correction. The proof of Theorem 3.5 in the original
article failed to separate
the proof of (ii) from the proof of (iii). The proof of (ii)
is complete once it is established
that $ad_a$ is quasi-nilpotent for each $a$ since it immediately
follows that $K$
is quasi-nilpotent. The proof of (iii) is not complete
in the original article. The revision appears as the proof of
(iii) of the revised Theorem below.

Representation Equivalent Bieberbach Groups and Strongly Isospectral Flat Manifolds Let $\Gamma_1$ and $\Gamma_2$ be Bieberbach groups contained in the
full isometry group $G$ of $\mathbb{R}^n$.
We prove that if the compact flat manifolds $\Gamma_1\backslash\mathbb{R}^n$ and
$\Gamma_2\backslash\mathbb{R}^n$ are strongly isospectral then the Bieberbach groups
$\Gamma_1$ and $\Gamma_2$ are representation equivalent, that is, the
right regular representations $L^2(\Gamma_1\backslash G)$ and
$L^2(\Gamma_2\backslash G)$ are unitarily equivalent.

Quantum Limits of Eisenstein Series and Scattering States We identify the quantum limits of scattering states
for the modular surface. This is obtained through the study of quantum
measures of non-holomorphic Eisenstein series away from the critical
line. We provide a range of stability for the quantum unique
ergodicity theorem of Luo and Sarnak.

Evolution of Eigenvalues along Rescaled Ricci Flow In this paper, we discuss monotonicity formulae of various entropy functionals under various
rescaled versions of Ricci flow. As an application, we prove that the lowest eigenvalue
of a family of geometric operators $-4\Delta + kR$ is monotonic along the
normalized Ricci flow for all $k\ge 1$ provided the initial manifold has
nonpositive total scalar curvature.

Semiclassical Limits of Eigenfunctions on Flat $n$-Dimensional Tori We provide a proof of a conjecture by Jakobson, Nadirashvili, and
Toth stating
that on an $n$-dimensional flat torus $\mathbb T^{n}$, and the Fourier transform
of squares of the eigenfunctions $|\varphi_\lambda|^2$ of the Laplacian have
uniform $l^n$ bounds that do not depend on the eigenvalue $\lambda$. The proof
is a generalization of an argument by Jakobson, et al. for the
lower dimensional cases. These results imply uniform bounds for semiclassical
limits on $\mathbb T^{n+2}$. We also prove a geometric lemma that bounds the number of
codimension-one simplices satisfying a certain restriction on an
$n$-dimensional sphere $S^n(\lambda)$ of radius $\sqrt{\lambda}$, and we use it in
the proof.

Multiple Solutions for Nonlinear Periodic Problems We consider a nonlinear periodic problem driven by a
nonlinear nonhomogeneous differential operator and a
CarathÃ©odory reaction term $f(t,x)$ that exhibits a
$(p-1)$-superlinear growth in $x \in \mathbb{R}$
near $\pm\infty$ and near zero.
A special case of the differential operator is the scalar
$p$-Laplacian. Using a combination of variational methods based on
the critical point theory with Morse theory (critical groups), we
show that the problem has three nontrivial solutions, two of which
have constant sign (one positive, the other negative).

First Variation Formula in Wasserstein Spaces over Compact Alexandrov Spaces We extend results proved by the second author (Amer. J. Math., 2009)
for nonnegatively curved Alexandrov spaces
to general compact Alexandrov spaces $X$ with curvature bounded
below.
The gradient flow of a geodesically convex functional on the quadratic Wasserstein
space $(\mathcal P(X),W_2)$ satisfies the evolution variational inequality.
Moreover, the gradient flow enjoys uniqueness and contractivity.
These results are obtained by proving a first variation formula for
the Wasserstein distance.

Stratified Subcartesian Spaces We show that if the family $\mathcal{O}$ of orbits of all vector fields on
a subcartesian space $P$ is locally finite and each orbit in $\mathcal{O}$
is locally closed, then $\mathcal{O}$ defines a smooth Whitney A
stratification of $P$. We also show that the stratification by orbit type of
the space of orbits $M/G$ of a proper action of a Lie group $G$ on a smooth
manifold $M$ is given by orbits of the family of all vector fields on $M/G$.

Multiple Solutions for a Class of Neumann Elliptic Problems on Compact Riemannian Manifolds with Boundary
We study a semilinear elliptic problem on a compact Riemannian
manifold with boundary, subject to an inhomogeneous Neumann
boundary condition. Under various hypotheses on the nonlinear
terms, depending on their behaviour in the origin and infinity, we
prove multiplicity of solutions by using variational arguments.

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.

Regular Points of a Subcartesian Space We discuss properties of the regular part $S_{\operatorname{reg}}$ of
a subcartesian space $S$. We show that $S_{\operatorname{reg}}$ is open and dense in
$S$ and the restriction to $ S_{\operatorname{reg}}$ of the tangent
bundle space of $S$ is locally trivial.

Harmonicity of Holomorphic Maps Between Almost Hermitian Manifolds In this paper we study holomorphic maps between almost Hermitian
manifolds. We obtain a new criterion for the harmonicity of such

conformal holomorphic submersions.

Huber's Theorem for Hyperbolic Orbisurfaces We show that for compact orientable hyperbolic orbisurfaces, the
Laplace spectrum determines the length spectrum as well as the
number of singular points of a given order. The converse also holds, giving
a full generalization of Huber's theorem to the setting of
compact orientable hyperbolic orbisurfaces.

Coupled Vortex Equations on Complete KÃ¤hler 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.

On the Inner Radius of a Nodal Domain Let $M$ be a closed Riemannian manifold.
We consider the inner radius of a nodal domain for a large eigenvalue $\lambda$.
We give upper and lower bounds on the inner radius of the type
$C/\lambda^\alpha(\log\lambda)^\beta$. Our proof is based on
a local behavior of eigenfunctions discovered by Donnelly and
Fefferman and a Poincar\'{e} type inequality proved by Maz'ya.
Sharp lower bounds are known
only in dimension two. We give an account of this case too.

Dynamical Zeta Function for Several Strictly Convex Obstacles The behavior of the dynamical zeta function $Z_D(s)$ related to
several strictly convex disjoint obstacles is similar to that of the
inverse $Q(s) = \frac{1}{\zeta(s)}$ of the Riemann zeta function
$\zeta(s)$. Let $\Pi(s)$ be the series obtained from $Z_D(s)$ summing
only over primitive periodic rays. In this paper we examine the
analytic singularities of $Z_D(s)$ and $\Pi(s)$ close to the line $\Re
s = s_2$, where $s_2$ is the abscissa of absolute convergence of the
series obtained by the second iterations of the primitive periodic
rays. We show that at least one of the functions $Z_D(s), \Pi(s)$
has a singularity at $s = s_2$.

Generalizations of Frobenius' Theorem on Manifolds and Subcartesian Spaces Let $\mathcal{F}$ be a family of vector fields on a manifold or a
subcartesian space spanning a distribution $D$. We prove that an orbit $O$
of $\mathcal{F}$ is an integral manifold of $D$ if $D$ is involutive on $O$
and it has constant rank on $O$. This result implies Frobenius' theorem, and
its various generalizations, on manifolds as well as on subcartesian spaces.

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.

Homotopy Equivalence and Groups of Measure-Preserving Homeomorphisms It is shown that the group of compactly
supported, measure-preserving homeomorphisms of a
connected, second countable manifold is locally contractible in the direct limit topology.
Furthermore, this group is weakly homotopically equivalent to the more general group of
compactly supported homeomorphisms.

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.

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.
