Strict comparison of positive elements in multiplier algebras
Main result: If a C*algebra $\mathcal{A}$ is simple, $\sigma$unital,
has finitely many extremal traces, and has strict comparison
of positive elements by traces, then its multiplier algebra
$\operatorname{\mathcal{M}}(\mathcal{A})$
also has strict comparison of positive elements by traces. The
same results holds if ``finitely many extremal traces" is replaced
by ``quasicontinuous scale".
A key ingredient in the proof is that every positive element
in the multiplier algebra of an arbitrary $\sigma$unital C*algebra
can be approximated by a bidiagonal series.
An application of strict comparison: If $\mathcal{A}$ is a simple separable
stable C*algebra with real rank zero, stable rank one, and
strict comparison of positive elements by traces, then whether
a positive element is a positive linear combination of projections
is determined by the trace values of its range projection.

Almost disjointness preservers
We study the stability of disjointness preservers on Banach lattices.
In many cases, we prove that an "almost disjointness preserving"
operator is well approximable by a disjointness preserving one.
However, this approximation is not always possible, as our
examples show.

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.

On the Commutators of Singular Integral Operators with Rough Convolution Kernels
Let $T_{\Omega}$ be the singular integral operator with kernel
$\frac{\Omega(x)}{x^n}$, 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
compactness on weighted $L^p$ spaces, and the Morrey spaces,
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.

Categorical Aspects of Quantum Groups: Multipliers and Intrinsic Groups
We show that the assignment of the (left) completely bounded
multiplier algebra
$M_{cb}^l(L^1(\mathbb G))$ to a locally compact quantum group
$\mathbb G$, and
the assignment of the intrinsic group, form functors between
appropriate
categories. Morphisms of locally compact quantum
groups can be described by Hopf $*$homomorphisms between universal
$C^*$algebras, by bicharacters, or by special sorts of coactions.
We show that the whole
theory of completely bounded multipliers can be lifted to the
universal
$C^*$algebra level, and that then the different pictures of
both multipliers
(reduced, universal, and as centralisers)
and morphisms interact in extremely natural ways. The intrinsic
group of a
quantum group can be realised as a class of multipliers, and
so our techniques
immediately apply. We also show how to think of the intrinsic
group using
the universal $C^*$algebra picture, and then, again, show how
the differing
views on the intrinsic group interact naturally with morphisms.
We show that
the intrinsic group is the ``maximal classical'' quantum subgroup
of a locally
compact quantum group, show that it is even closed in the strong
Vaes sense,
and that the intrinsic group functor is an adjoint to the inclusion
functor
from locally compact groups to quantum groups.

Free function theory through matrix invariants
This paper concerns free function theory. Free maps are free
analogs of analytic functions in several complex variables,
and are defined in terms of freely noncommuting variables.
A function of $g$ noncommuting variables is a function on $g$tuples
of square matrices of all sizes that respects direct sums and
simultaneous conjugation.
Examples of such maps include noncommutative polynomials, noncommutative
rational functions and convergent noncommutative power series.
In sharp contrast to the existing literature in free analysis, this article
investigates free maps \emph{with involution} 
free analogs of real analytic functions.
To
get a grip on these,
techniques and tools from invariant theory are developed and
applied to free analysis. Here is a sample of the results obtained.
A characterization of polynomial free maps via properties of
their finitedimensional slices is presented and then used to
establish power series expansions for analytic free maps about
scalar and nonscalar points; the latter are series of generalized
polynomials for which an invarianttheoretic characterization
is given.
Furthermore,
an inverse and implicit function theorem for free maps with
involution is obtained.
Finally, with a selection of carefully chosen examples
it is shown that
free maps with involution
do not exhibit strong rigidity properties
enjoyed by their involutionfree
counterparts.

Strong Logarithmic Sobolev Inequalities for LogSubharmonic Functions
We prove an intrinsic equivalence between strong
hypercontractivity and a strong logarithmic Sobolev
inequality for the cone of logarithmically subharmonic
(LSH) functions. We introduce a new large class of measures,
Euclidean regular and exponential type, in addition to all compactlysupported
measures, for which this equivalence holds. We prove a Sobolev
density theorem through LSH functions and use it to prove
the equivalence of strong
hypercontractivity and the strong logarithmic Sobolev
inequality for such logsubharmonic
functions.

On the Dispersive Estimate for the Dirichlet SchrÃ¶dinger Propagator and Applications to Energy Critical NLS
We consider the obstacle problem for the SchrÃ¶dinger evolution
in the exterior of the unit ball with Dirichlet boundary condition. Under
the radial symmetry we compute explicitly the fundamental solution
for the linear Dirichlet SchrÃ¶dinger
propagator $e^{it\Delta_D}$
and give a robust algorithm to prove sharp $L^1 \rightarrow
L^{\infty}$ dispersive estimates. We showcase the analysis in
dimensions $n=5,7$. As an application, we obtain global
wellposedness and scattering for defocusing energycritical NLS on
$\Omega=\mathbb{R}^n\backslash \overline{B(0,1)}$ with Dirichlet boundary
condition and radial data in these dimensions.

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.

Maps Preserving Complementarity of Closed Subspaces of a Hilbert Space
Let $\mathcal{H}$ and $\mathcal{K}$ be infinitedimensional separable
Hilbert spaces and ${\rm Lat}\,\mathcal{H}$ the lattice of all closed subspaces oh $\mathcal{H}$.
We describe the general form of pairs of bijective maps $\phi , \psi :
{\rm Lat}\,\mathcal{H} \to {\rm Lat}\,\mathcal{K}$ having the property that for every pair
$U,V \in {\rm Lat}\,\mathcal{H}$ we have $\mathcal{H} = U \oplus V \iff \mathcal{K} = \phi (U) \oplus \psi (V)$. Then we reformulate this theorem as a description
of bijective image equality and kernel equality preserving maps acting on bounded linear idempotent operators. Several known
structural results for maps on idempotents are easy consequences.

Uniformly Continuous Functionals and MWeakly Amenable Groups
Let $G$ be a locally compact group. Let $A_{M}(G)$ ($A_{0}(G)$)denote
the closure of $A(G)$, the Fourier algebra of $G$ in the space of
bounded (completely bounded) multipliers of $A(G)$.
We call a locally compact group Mweakly amenable if
$A_M(G)$
has a
bounded approximate identity. We will show that when $G$ is Mweakly
amenable, the algebras $A_{M}(G)$ and $A_{0}(G)$ have
properties that are characteristic of the Fourier algebra of an
amenable group. Along the way we show that the sets of tolopolically
invariant means associated with these algebras have the same
cardinality as those of the Fourier algebra.

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.

Generalised Triple Homomorphisms and Derivations
We introduce generalised triple homomorphism between Jordan Banach
triple systems as a concept which extends the notion of generalised homomorphism between
Banach algebras given by K. Jarosz and B.E. Johnson in 1985 and 1987, respectively.
We prove that every generalised triple homomorphism between JB$^*$triples
is automatically continuous. When particularised to C$^*$algebras, we rediscover
one of the main theorems established by B.E. Johnson. We shall also consider generalised
triple derivations from a Jordan Banach triple $E$ into a Jordan Banach triple $E$module,
proving that every generalised triple derivation from a JB$^*$triple $E$ into itself or into $E^*$
is automatically continuous.

Heat Kernels and Green Functions on Metric Measure Spaces
We prove that, in a setting of local Dirichlet forms on metric measure
spaces, a twosided subGaussian estimate of the heat kernel is equivalent
to the conjunction of the volume doubling propety, the elliptic Harnack
inequality and a certain estimate of the capacity between concentric balls.
The main technical tool is the equivalence between the capacity estimate and
the estimate of a mean exit time in a ball, that uses twosided estimates of
a Green function in a ball.

Nonselfadjoint Semicrossed Products by Abelian Semigroups
Let $\mathcal{S}$ be the semigroup $\mathcal{S}=\sum^{\oplus k}_{i=1}\mathcal{S}_i$, where for each $i\in I$,
$\mathcal{S}_i$ is a countable subsemigroup of the additive semigroup $\mathbb{R}_+$ containing $0$. We consider representations
of $\mathcal{S}$ as contractions $\{T_s\}_{s\in\mathcal{S}}$ on a Hilbert space with the Nicacovariance property:
$T_s^*T_t=T_tT_s^*$ whenever $t\wedge s=0$. We show that all such representations have a unique minimal isometric Nicacovariant
dilation.
This result is used to help analyse the nonselfadjoint semicrossed product algebras formed from Nicacovariant representations of the action of $\mathcal{S}$ on an operator algebra $\mathcal{A}$ by completely contractive endomorphisms.
We conclude by calculating the $C^*$envelope of the isometric nonselfadjoint semicrossed product algebra (in the sense
of Kakariadis and Katsoulis).

lacunary sets, unconditional Schauder bases for the subspace of a
Lebesgue space determined by a given spectrum $\varLambda\subseteq\varGamma$, the
norm of the Hilbert transform and the Riesz projection on
SchattenvonNeumann classes with exponent a power of 2, and the norm of

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
convexity principle
to cover the continuous range of $\alpha\in[1/2,\infty)^d$. Finally, we investigate negative powers
of the Dunkl harmonic oscillator in the context of a finite reflection group acting on $\mathbb{R}^d$ and
isomorphic to $\mathbb Z^d_2$. The two weight $L^pL^q$ estimates we obtain in this setting are essentially
consequences of those for Laguerre function expansions of convolution type.

On Complemented Subspaces of NonArchimedean Power Series Spaces
The nonarchimedean power series spaces, $A_1(a)$ and $A_\infty(b)$, are the
best known and most important examples of nonarchimedean nuclear FrÃ©chet spaces.
We prove that the range of every continuous linear map from $A_p(a)$ to $A_q(b)$
has a Schauder basis if either $p=1$ or $p=\infty$ and the set $M_{b,a}$ of all
bounded limit points of the double sequence
$(b_i/a_j)_{i,j\in\mathbb{N}}$ is bounded. It
follows that every complemented subspace of a power series space $A_p(a)$ has a
Schauder basis if either $p=1$ or $p=\infty$ and the set $M_{a,a}$ is bounded.

Spectral Asymptotics of Laplacians Associated with Onedimensional Iterated Function Systems with Overlaps
We set up a framework for computing the spectral dimension of a class of onedimensional
selfsimilar measures that are defined by iterated function systems
with overlaps and satisfy a family of secondorder selfsimilar
identities. As applications of our result we obtain the spectral dimension
of important measures such as the infinite Bernoulli convolution
associated with the golden ratio and convolutions of Cantortype measures.
The main novelty of our result is that the iterated function systems
we consider are not postcritically finite and do not satisfy the
wellknown open set condition.

each one leading to different results that complete, if not improve,
other similar results in the theory. Results in this paper stand for Banach

BMOEstimates for Maximal Operators via Approximations of the Identity with NonDoubling Measures
Let $\mu$ be a nonnegative Radon measure
on $\mathbb{R}^d$ that satisfies the growth condition that there exist
constants $C_0>0$ and $n\in(0,d]$ such that for all $x\in\mathbb{R}^d$ and
$r>0$, ${\mu(B(x,\,r))\le C_0r^n}$, where $B(x,r)$ is the open ball
centered at $x$ and having radius $r$. In this paper, the authors prove
that if $f$ belongs to the $\textrm {BMO}$type space $\textrm{RBMO}(\mu)$ of Tolsa, then
the homogeneous maximal function $\dot{\mathcal{M}}_S(f)$ (when $\mathbb{R}^d$ is not an
initial cube) and the inhomogeneous maximal function
$\mathcal{M}_S(f)$ (when $\mathbb{R}^d$ is an initial cube)
associated with a given approximation of the identity $S$ of Tolsa are
either infinite everywhere or finite almost everywhere,
and in the latter case, $\dot{\mathcal{M}}_S$ and $\mathcal{M}_S$ are bounded from
$\textrm{RBMO}(\mu)$ to the $\textrm {BLO}$type
space $\textrm{RBLO}(\mu)$. The authors also prove that the inhomogeneous
