Weights of the mod $p$ kernel of the theta operators
Let $\Theta ^{[j]}$ be an analogue of the Ramanujan theta operator
for Siegel modular forms.
For a given prime $p$, we give the weights of elements of mod
$p$ kernel of $\Theta ^{[j]}$,
where the mod $p$ kernel of $\Theta ^{[j]}$ is the set of all
Siegel modular forms $F$ such that $\Theta ^{[j]}(F)$ is congruent
to zero modulo $p$.
In order to construct examples of the mod $p$ kernel of $\Theta
^{[j]}$ from any Siegel modular form,
we introduce new operators $A^{(j)}(M)$ and show the modularity
of $FA^{(j)}(M)$ when $F$ is a Siegel modular form.
Finally, we give some examples of the mod $p$ kernel of $\Theta
^{[j]}$ and the filtrations of some of them.

A Beurling Theorem for Generalized Hardy Spaces on a Multiply Connected Domain
The object of this paper is to prove a version of the BeurlingHelsonLowdenslager
invariant subspace theorem for operators on certain Banach spaces
of functions on a multiply connected domain in $\mathbb{C}$. The norms
for these spaces are either the usual Lebesgue and Hardy space
norms or certain continuous gauge norms.
In the Hardy space case the expected corollaries include the
characterization of the cyclic vectors as the outer functions
in this context, a demonstration that the set of analytic multiplication
operators is maximal abelian and reflexive, and a determination
of the closed operators that commute with all analytic multiplication
operators.

The BishopPhelpsBollobÃ¡s property for compact operators
We study the BishopPhelpsBollobÃ¡s property (BPBp for short)
for compact operators. We present some abstract techniques which
allows to carry the BPBp for compact operators from sequence
spaces to function spaces. As main applications, we prove the
following results. Let $X$, $Y$ be Banach spaces. If $(c_0,Y)$
has the BPBp for compact operators, then so do $(C_0(L),Y)$ for
every locally compact Hausdorff topological space $L$ and $(X,Y)$
whenever $X^*$ is isometrically isomorphic to $\ell_1$.
If $X^*$ has the RadonNikodÃ½m property and $(\ell_1(X),Y)$
has the BPBp for compact operators, then so does $(L_1(\mu,X),Y)$
for every positive measure $\mu$; as a consequence, $(L_1(\mu,X),Y)$
has the the BPBp for compact operators when $X$ and $Y$ are finitedimensional
or $Y$ is a Hilbert space and $X=c_0$ or $X=L_p(\nu)$ for any
positive measure $\nu$ and $1\lt p\lt \infty$.
For $1\leq p \lt \infty$, if $(X,\ell_p(Y))$ has the BPBp for compact
operators, then so does $(X,L_p(\mu,Y))$ for every positive measure
$\mu$ such that $L_1(\mu)$ is infinitedimensional. If $(X,Y)$
has the BPBp for compact operators, then so do $(X,L_\infty(\mu,Y))$
for every $\sigma$finite positive measure $\mu$ and $(X,C(K,Y))$
for every compact Hausdorff topological space $K$.

On Residues of Intertwining Operators in Cases with Prehomogeneous Nilradical
Let $\operatorname{P} = \operatorname{M} \operatorname{N}$ be a Levi decomposition of a maximal parabolic
subgroup of a connected
reductive group $\operatorname{G}$ over a $p$adic field $F$. Assume that there
exists $w_0 \in \operatorname{G}(F)$ that normalizes $\operatorname{M}$ and conjugates $\operatorname{P}$
to an opposite parabolic subgroup.
When $\operatorname{N}$ has a Zariski dense $\operatorname{Int} \operatorname{M}$orbit,
F. Shahidi and X. Yu describe a certain distribution $D$ on
$\operatorname{M}(F)$
such that,
for irreducible unitary supercuspidal representations $\pi$ of
$\operatorname{M}(F)$ with
$\pi \cong \pi \circ \operatorname{Int} w_0$,
$\operatorname{Ind}_{\operatorname{P}(F)}^{\operatorname{G}(F)} \pi$ is
irreducible
if and only if $D(f) \neq 0$ for some pseudocoefficient $f$ of
$\pi$. Since
this irreducibility is conjecturally related to $\pi$ arising
via
transfer from certain twisted endoscopic groups of $\operatorname{M}$, it is
of interest
to realize $D$ as endoscopic transfer from a simpler distribution
on a twisted
endoscopic group $\operatorname{H}$ of $\operatorname{M}$. This has been done in many situations
where $\operatorname{N}$ is abelian. Here, we handle the `standard examples'
in cases
where $\operatorname{N}$ is nonabelian but admits a Zariski dense
$\operatorname{Int} \operatorname{M}$orbit.

Order and Spectrum Preserving Maps on Positive Operators
We describe the general form of surjective maps on the cone of
all positive operators which preserve order and spectrum. The
result is optimal as shown by
counterexamples. As an easy consequence we characterize surjective

operators.

New Deformations of Convolution Algebras and Fourier Algebras on Locally Compact Groups
In this paper we introduce a new way of deforming convolution
algebras and Fourier algebras on locally compact groups. We demonstrate
that this new deformation allows us to reveal some information
of the underlying groups by examining Banach algebra properties
of deformed algebras. More precisely, we focus on representability
as an operator algebra of deformed convolution algebras on compact
connected Lie groups with connection to the real dimension of
the underlying group. Similarly, we investigate complete representability
as an operator algebra of deformed Fourier algebras on some finitely
generated discrete groups with connection to the growth rate
of the group.

On the Notion of Conductor in the Local Geometric Langlands Correspondence
Under the local Langlands correspondence, the conductor of an
irreducible representation of $\operatorname{Gl}_n(F)$ is greater than the
Swan conductor of the corresponding Galois representation. In
this paper, we establish the geometric analogue of this statement
by showing that the conductor of a categorical representation
of the loop group is greater than the irregularity of the corresponding
meromorphic connection.

Centrevalued Index for Toeplitz Operators with Noncommuting Symbols
We formulate and prove a ``winding number'' index
theorem for certain ``Toeplitz'' operators in the same spirit
as GohbergKrein, Lesch and others. The ``number'' is replaced
by a selfadjoint operator in a subalgebra $Z\subseteq Z(A)$
of a unital $C^*$algebra, $A$. We assume a faithful $Z$valued
trace $\tau$ on $A$ left invariant under an action $\alpha:{\mathbf
R}\to Aut(A)$ leaving $Z$ pointwise fixed.If $\delta$ is the
infinitesimal generator of $\alpha$ and $u$ is invertible in
$\operatorname{dom}(\delta)$ then the
``winding operator'' of $u$ is $\frac{1}{2\pi i}\tau(\delta(u)u^{1})\in
Z_{sa}.$ By a careful choice of representations we extend $(A,Z,\tau,\alpha)$
to a von Neumann setting
$(\mathfrak{A},\mathfrak{Z},\bar\tau,\bar\alpha)$ where $\mathfrak{A}=A^{\prime\prime}$
and $\mathfrak{Z}=Z^{\prime\prime}.$
Then $A\subset\mathfrak{A}\subset \mathfrak{A}\rtimes{\bf R}$, the von
Neumann crossed product, and there is a faithful, dual $\mathfrak{Z}$trace
on $\mathfrak{A}\rtimes{\bf R}$. If $P$ is the projection in $\mathfrak{A}\rtimes{\bf
R}$
corresponding to the nonnegative spectrum of the generator of
$\mathbf R$ inside $\mathfrak{A}\rtimes{\mathbf R}$ and
$\tilde\pi:A\to\mathfrak{A}\rtimes{\mathbf R}$
is the embedding then we define for $u\in A^{1}$, $T_u=P\tilde\pi(u)
P$
and show it is Fredholm in an appropriate sense and the $\mathfrak{Z}$valued
index of $T_u$ is the negative of the winding operator.
In outline the proof follows the proof of the scalar case done
previously by the authors. The main difficulty is making sense
of the constructions with the scalars replaced by $\mathfrak{Z}$ in
the von Neumann setting. The construction of the dual $\mathfrak{Z}$trace
on $\mathfrak{A}\rtimes{\mathbf R}$ required the nontrivial development
of a $\mathfrak{Z}$Hilbert Algebra theory. We show that certain of
these Fredholm operators fiber as a ``section'' of Fredholm operators
with scalarvalued index and the centrevalued index fibers as
a section of the scalarvalued indices.

On the Isomorphism Problem for Multiplier Algebras of NevanlinnaPick Spaces
We continue the investigation of the isomorphism problem for
multiplier algebras of reproducing kernel
Hilbert spaces with the complete NevanlinnaPick property.
In contrast to previous work in this area,
we do not study these spaces by identifying them with restrictions
of a universal space, namely the DruryArveson space.
Instead, we work directly with the Hilbert spaces and their
reproducing kernels. In particular,
we show that two multiplier algebras of NevanlinnaPick spaces
on the same set are equal if and only if the Hilbert
spaces are equal. Most of the article is devoted to the study
of a special class of
complete NevanlinnaPick spaces on homogeneous varieties. We
provide a complete
answer to the question of when two multiplier algebras of spaces
of this type
are algebraically or isometrically isomorphic. This generalizes
results of Davidson, Ramsey, Shalit,
and the author.

$\frac{\Omega(x)}{x^n}$, where $\Omega$ is homogeneous of degree
zero, has mean value zero and belongs to $L^q(S^{n1})$ for
some
$q\in (1,\,\infty]$. In this paper, the authors establish the

for the commutator generated by $\operatorname{CMO}(\mathbb{R}^n)$ function
and $T_{\Omega}$. The associated maximal operator and the discrete
maximal operator are also considered.

On Twofaced Families of Noncommutative Random Variables
We demonstrate that the notions of bifree independence and combinatorialbifree
independence of twofaced families are equivalent using a diagrammatic
view of binoncrossing partitions.
These diagrams produce an operator model on a Fock space suitable
for representing any twofaced family of noncommutative random
variables.
Furthermore, using a Kreweras complement on binoncrossing partitions
we establish the expected formulas for the multiplicative convolution
of a bifree pair of twofaced families.

Hardy space $H_w^p(\mathbb{R}^n)$.

Unitary Equivalence and Similarity to Jordan Models for Weak Contractions of Class $C_0$
We obtain results on the unitary equivalence of weak contractions of
class $C_0$ to their Jordan models under an assumption on their
commutants. In particular, our work addresses the case of arbitrary
finite multiplicity. The main tool is the
theory of boundary representations due to Arveson. We also
generalize and improve previously known results concerning unitary
equivalence and similarity to Jordan models when the minimal function
is a Blaschke product.

Weighted Carleson Measure Spaces Associated with Different Homogeneities
In this paper, we introduce weighted Carleson measure spaces associated
with different homogeneities and prove that these spaces are the dual spaces
of weighted Hardy spaces studied in a forthcoming paper.
As an application, we establish
the boundedness of composition of two CalderÃ³nZygmund operators with
different homogeneities on the weighted Carleson measure spaces; this,
in particular, provides the weighted endpoint estimates for the operators
studied by PhongStein.

Composition of Inner Functions
We study the image of the model subspace $K_\theta$ under the
composition operator $C_\varphi$, where $\varphi$ and $\theta$ are
inner functions, and find the smallest model subspace which contains
the linear manifold $C_\varphi K_\theta$. Then we characterize the
case when $C_\varphi$ maps $K_\theta$ into itself. This case leads to
the study of the inner functions $\varphi$ and $\psi$ such that the
composition $\psi\circ\varphi$ is a divisor of $\psi$ in the family of
inner functions.

Automatic Continuity of Homomorphisms in Nonassociative Banach Algebras
We introduce the concept of a rare element in a nonassociative normed
algebra and show that the existence of such element is the only obstruction
to continuity of a surjective homomorphism from a nonassociative Banach
algebra to a unital normed algebra with simple completion. Unital
associative algebras do not admit any rare element and hence automatic
continuity holds.

Harmonic Analysis Related to Homogeneous Varieties in Three Dimensional Vector Spaces over Finite Fields
In this paper we study the extension problem, the
averaging problem, and the generalized ErdÅsFalconer distance
problem associated with arbitrary homogeneous varieties in three
dimensional vector spaces over finite fields. In the case when the
varieties do not contain any plane passing through the origin, we
obtain the best possible results on the aforementioned three problems. In
particular, our result on the extension problem modestly generalizes
the result by Mockenhaupt and Tao who studied the particular conical
extension problem. In addition, investigating the Fourier decay on
homogeneous varieties enables us to give complete mapping properties
of averaging operators. Moreover, we improve the size condition on a
set such that the cardinality of its distance set is nontrivial.

The Genuine Omegaregular Unitary Dual of the Metaplectic Group
We classify all genuine unitary representations of the metaplectic group whose
infinitesimal character is real and at least as regular as that of the
oscillator representation. In a previous paper we exhibited a certain family
of representations satisfying these conditions, obtained by cohomological
induction from the tensor product of a onedimensional representation and an
oscillator representation. Our main theorem asserts that this family exhausts
the genuine omegaregular unitary dual of the metaplectic group.

Quantum Random Walks and Minors of Hermitian Brownian Motion
Considering quantum random walks, we construct discretetime
approximations of the eigenvalues processes of minors of Hermitian
Brownian motion. It has been recently proved by Adler, Nordenstam, and
van Moerbeke that the process of eigenvalues of
two consecutive minors of a Hermitian Brownian motion is a Markov
process; whereas, if one considers more than two consecutive minors,
the Markov property fails. We show that there are analog results in
the noncommutative counterpart and establish the Markov property of
eigenvalues of some particular submatrices of Hermitian Brownian
motion.

Boundedness of CalderÃ³nZygmund Operators on Nonhomogeneous Metric Measure Spaces
Let $({\mathcal X}, d, \mu)$ be a
separable metric measure space satisfying the known upper
doubling condition, the geometrical doubling condition, and the
nonatomic condition that $\mu(\{x\})=0$ for all $x\in{\mathcal X}$.
In this paper, we show that the boundedness of a CalderÃ³nZygmund
operator $T$ on $L^2(\mu)$ is equivalent to that of $T$ on
$L^p(\mu)$ for some $p\in (1, \infty)$, and that of $T$ from $L^1(\mu)$
to $L^{1,\,\infty}(\mu).$ As an application, we prove that if $T$ is a
CalderÃ³nZygmund operator bounded on $L^2(\mu)$,
then its maximal operator is bounded on $L^p(\mu)$
for all $p\in (1, \infty)$ and from
the space of all complexvalued Borel measures on
${\mathcal X}$ to $L^{1,\,\infty}(\mu)$.
All these results generalize the corresponding results of Nazarov et al.
on metric spaces with
measures satisfying the socalled polynomial growth condition.
