On Whitneytype characterization of approximate differentiability on metric measure spaces We study approximately differentiable functions on metric measure spaces admitting a Cheeger differentiable structure. The main result is a Whitneytype characterization of approximately differentiable functions in this setting.
As an application, we prove a Stepanovtype theorem and consider approximate differentiability of Sobolev, $BV$ and maximal functions.

Negative Powers of Laguerre Operators We study negative powers of Laguerre differential operators in $\mathbb{R}^d$, $d\ge1$.
For these operators we prove twoweight $L^pL^q$ estimates with ranges of $q$ depending
on $p$. The case of the harmonic oscillator (Hermite operator) has recently
been treated by Bongioanni and Torrea by using a straightforward
approach of kernel estimates. Here these results are applied in certain Laguerre settings.
The procedure is fairly direct for Laguerre function expansions of
Hermite type,
due to some monotonicity properties of the kernels involved.
The case of Laguerre function expansions of convolution type is less straightforward.
For halfinteger type indices $\alpha$ we transfer the desired results from the Hermite setting
and then apply an interpolation argument based on a device we call the

Monotonically Controlled Mappings We study classes of mappings between finite and infinite dimensional
Banach spaces that are monotone and mappings which are differences
of monotone mappings (DM). We prove a RadÃ³Reichelderfer estimate
for monotone mappings in finite dimensional spaces that remains
valid for DM mappings. This provides an alternative proof of the
FrÃ©chet differentiability a.e. of DM mappings. We establish a
Morreytype estimate for the distributional derivative of monotone
mappings. We prove that a locally DM mapping between finite
dimensional spaces is also globally DM. We introduce and study a new
class of the socalled UDM mappings between Banach spaces, which
generalizes the concept of curves of finite variation.

The BrascampLieb Polyhedron
A set of necessary and sufficient conditions for the BrascampLieb inequality to hold has recently been found by Bennett, Carbery, Christ, and Tao. We present an analysis of these conditions. This analysis allows us to give a concise description of the set where the inequality holds in the case where each of the linear maps involved has corank $1$. This complements the result of Barthe concerning the case where the linear maps all have rank $1$. Pushing our analysis further, we describe the case where the maps have either rank $1$ or rank $2$. A separate but related problem is to give a list of the finite number of conditions necessary and sufficient for the BrascampLieb inequality to hold. We present an algorithm which generates such a list.

Degenerate pLaplacian Operators and Hardy Type Inequalities on
HType Groups Let $\mathbb G$ be a steptwo nilpotent group of Htype with Lie algebra $\mathfrak G=V\oplus \mathfrak t$. We define a class of vector fields $X=\{X_j\}$ on $\mathbb G$ depending on a real parameter $k\ge 1$, and we consider the corresponding $p$Laplacian operator $L_{p,k} u= \operatorname{div}_X (\nabla_{X} u^{p2} \nabla_X u)$. For $k=1$ the vector fields $X=\{X_j\}$ are the left invariant vector fields corresponding to an orthonormal basis of $V$; for $\mathbb G$ being the Heisenberg group the vector fields are the Greiner fields. In this paper we obtain the fundamental solution for the operator $L_{p,k}$ and as an application, we get a Hardy type inequality associated with $X$.

$H^\infty$ Functional Calculus and MikhlinType Multiplier Conditions Let $T$ be a sectorial operator. It is known that the existence of a
bounded (suitably scaled) $H^\infty$ calculus for $T$, on every
sector containing the positive halfline, is equivalent to the
existence of a bounded functional calculus on the Besov algebra
$\Lambda_{\infty,1}^\alpha(\R^+)$. Such an algebra
includes functions defined by Mikhlintype conditions and so the
Besov calculus can be seen as a result on multipliers for $T$. In
this paper, we use fractional derivation to analyse in detail the
relationship between $\Lambda_{\infty,1}^\alpha$ and Banach algebras
of Mikhlintype. As a result, we obtain a new version of the quoted
equivalence.

A Note on a Conjecture of S. Stahl S. Stahl (Canad. J. Math. \textbf{49}(1997), no. 3, 617640)
conjectured that the zeros of genus polynomial are real.
L. Liu and Y. Wang disproved this conjecture on the basis
of Example 6.7. In this note, it is pointed out
that there is an error in this example and a new generating matrix

On Pointwise Estimates of Positive Definite Functions With Given Support The following problem has been suggested by Paul Tur\' an. Let
$\Omega$ be a symmetric convex body in the Euclidean space $\mathbb R^d$
or in the torus $\TT^d$. Then, what is the largest possible value
of the integral of positive definite functions that are supported
in $\Omega$ and normalized with the value $1$ at the origin? From
this, Arestov, Berdysheva and Berens arrived at the analogous
pointwise extremal problem for intervals in $\RR$. That is, under
the same conditions and normalizations, the supremum of possible
function values at $z$ is to be found for any given point
$z\in\Omega$. However, it turns out that the problem for the real
line has already been solved by Boas and Kac, who gave several
proofs and also mentioned possible extensions to $\RR^d$ and to
nonconvex domains as well.
Here we present another approach to the problem, giving the
solution in $\RR^d$ and for several cases in~$\TT^d$. Actually, we
elaborate on the fact that the problem is essentially
onedimensional and investigate nonconvex open domains as well.
We show that the extremal problems are equivalent to some more
familiar ones concerning trigonometric polynomials, and thus find
the extremal values for a few cases. An analysis of the
relationship between the problem for $\RR^d$ and that for $\TT^d$
is given, showing that the former case is just the limiting case
of the latter. Thus the hierarchy of difficulty is established, so
that extremal problems for trigonometric polynomials gain renewed
recognition.

ConeMonotone Functions: Differentiability and Continuity We provide a porositybased approach to the differentiability and
continuity of realvalued functions on separable Banach spaces,
when the function is monotone with respect to an ordering induced
by a convex cone $K$ with nonempty interior. We also show that
the set of nowhere $K$monotone functions has a $\sigma$porous
complement in the space of continuous functions endowed with the
uniform metric.

Small Coverings with Smooth Functions under the Covering Property Axiom In the paper we formulate a Covering Property Axiom, \psmP,
which holds in the iterated perfect set model,
and show that it implies the following facts,
of which (a) and (b) are the generalizations
of results of J. Stepr\={a}ns.
\begin{compactenum}[\rm(a)~~]
\item There exists a family $\F$ of less than continuum many $\C^1$
functions from $\real$ to $\real$ such that $\real^2$ is covered
by functions from $\F$, in the sense that for every $\la
x,y\ra\in\real^2$ there exists an $f\in\F$ such that either
$f(x)=y$ or $f(y)=x$.
\item For every Borel function $f\colon\real\to\real$ there exists a
family $\F$ of less than continuum many ``$\C^1$'' functions ({\em
i.e.,} differentiable functions with continuous derivatives, where
derivative can be infinite) whose graphs cover the graph of $f$.
\item For every $n>0$ and
a $D^n$ function $f\colon\real\to\real$ there exists
a family $\F$ of less than continuum many $\C^n$ functions
whose graphs cover the graph of $f$.

the smoothness conditions are the best possible. Parts (b), (c),

Differentiability Properties of Optimal Value Functions Differentiability properties of optimal value functions associated with
perturbed optimization problems require strong assumptions. We consider such
a set of assumptions which does not use compactness hypothesis but which
involves a kind of coherence property. Moreover, a strict differentiability
property is obtained by using techniques of Ekeland and Lebourg and a result
of Preiss. Such a strengthening is required in order to obtain genericity
results.

Bump Functions with HÃ¶lder Derivatives We study the range of the gradients
of a $C^{1,\al}$smooth bump function defined on a Banach space.
We find that this set must satisfy two geometrical conditions:
It can not be too flat and it satisfies a strong compactness condition
with respect to an appropriate distance.
These notions are defined precisely below.
With these results we illustrate the differences with
the case of $C^1$smooth bump functions.
Finally, we give a sufficient condition on a subset of $X^{\ast}$ so that it is
the set of the gradients of a $C^{1,1}$smooth bump function.
In particular, if $X$ is an infinite dimensional Banach space
with a $C^{1,1}$smooth bump function,
then any convex open bounded subset of $X^{\ast}$ containing $0$ is the set
of the gradients of a $C^{1,1}$smooth bump function.

ConvexitÃ©, complÃ¨te monotonie et inÃ©galitÃ©s sur les fonctions zÃªta et gamma sur les fonctions des opÃ©rateurs de Baskakov et sur des fonctions arithmÃ©tiques 
ConvexitÃ©, complÃ¨te monotonie et inÃ©galitÃ©s sur les fonctions zÃªta et gamma sur les fonctions des opÃ©rateurs de Baskakov et sur des fonctions arithmÃ©tiques We give optimal upper and lower bounds for the function
$H(x,s)=\sum_{n\geq 1}\frac{1}{(x+n)^s}$ for $x\geq 0$ and $s>1$. These
bounds improve the standard inequalities with integrals. We deduce from them
inequalities about Riemann's $\zeta$ function, and we give a conjecture
about the monotonicity of the function
$s\mapsto[(s1)\zeta(s)]^{\frac{1}{s1}}$. Some applications concern the
convexity of functions related to Euler's $\Gamma$ function and optimal
majorization of elementary functions of Baskakov's operators. Then, the
result proved for the function $x\mapsto x^{s}$ is extended to completely
monotonic functions. This leads to easy evaluation of the order of the
generating series of some arithmetical functions when $z$ tends to 1. The
last part is concerned with the class of non negative decreasing convex
functions on $]0,+\infty[$, integrable at infinity.

Real Interpolation with Logarithmic Functors and Reiteration We present ``reiteration theorems'' with limiting values
$\theta=0$ and $\theta = 1$ for a real interpolation method
involving brokenlogarithmic functors. The resulting spaces
lie outside of the original scale of spaces and to describe them
new interpolation functors are introduced. For an ordered couple
of (quasi) Banach spaces similar results were presented without
proofs by Doktorskii in [D].

Inequalities for rational functions with prescribed poles This paper considers the rational system ${\cal P}_n
(a_1,a_2,\ldots,a_n):= \bigl\{ {P(x) \over \prod_{k=1}^n (xa_k)},
P\in {\cal P}_n\bigr\}$ with nonreal elements in
$\{a_k\}_{k=1}^{n}\subset\Bbb{C}\setminus [1,1]$ paired by complex
conjugation. It gives a sharp (to constant) Markovtype inequality
for real rational functions in ${\cal P}_n (a_1,a_2,\ldots,a_n)$.
The corresponding Markovtype inequality for high derivatives
is established, as well as Nikolskiitype inequalities. Some
sharp Markov and Bernsteintype inequalities with curved majorants
for rational functions in ${\cal P}_n(a_1,a_2,\ldots,a_n)$ are
obtained, which generalize some results for the classical
polynomials. A sharp Schurtype inequality is also proved and
plays a key role in the proofs of our main results.

A characterization of two weight norm inequalities for onesided operators of fractional type In this paper we give a characterization of the pairs
of weights $(\w,v)$ such that $T$ maps $L^p(v)$ into
$L^q(\w)$, where $T$ is a general onesided operator
that includes as a particular case the Weyl fractional
integral. As an application we solve the following problem:
given a weight $v$, when is there a nontrivial weight
$\w$ such that $T$ maps $L^p(v)$ into $L^q(\w )$?

On the zeros of some genus polynomials In the genus polynomial of the graph $G$, the coefficient of $x^k$
is the number of distinct embeddings of the graph $G$ on the
oriented surface of genus $k$. It is shown that for several
infinite families of graphs all the zeros of the genus polynomial
are real and negative. This implies that their coefficients, which
constitute the genus distribution of the graph, are log concave and
therefore also unimodal. The geometric distribution of the zeros
of some of these polynomials is also investigated and some new
genus polynomials are presented.
