Fixed point theorems for maps with local and pointwise contraction properties
The paper constitutes a comprehensive study of ten classes of
selfmaps on metric spaces $\langle X,d\rangle$ with the local
and pointwise (a.k.a. local radial) contraction properties.
Each of those classes appeared previously in the literature in
the context of fixed point theorems.
We begin with presenting an overview
of these fixed point results, including concise self contained
sketches of their proofs.
Then, we proceed with a discussion of the relations among the
ten classes of selfmaps with domains $\langle X,d\rangle$
having various topological properties which often appear in the
theory of fixed point theorems: completeness, compactness, (path)
connectedness, rectifiable path connectedness, and $d$convexity.
The bulk of the results presented in this part consists of examples
of maps that show nonreversibility of the previously established
inclusions between theses classes.
Among these examples, the most striking is a differentiable autohomeomorphism
$f$ of a compact perfect subset $X$ of $\mathbb R$
with $f'\equiv 0$, which constitutes also a minimal dynamical
system.
We finish with discussing a few remaining open problems on weather
the maps with specific pointwise contraction
properties must have the fixed points.

Normality versus paracompactness in locally compact spaces
This note provides a correct proof of the result claimed by the
second author that locally compact normal spaces are collectionwise
Hausdorff in certain models obtained by forcing with a coherent
Souslin tree. A novel feature of the proof is the use of saturation
of the nonstationary ideal on $\omega_1$, as well as of a strong
form of Chang's Conjecture. Together with other improvements,
this enables the consistent characterization of locally compact
hereditarily paracompact spaces as those locally compact, hereditarily
normal spaces that do not include a copy of $\omega_1$.

Strongly Summable Ultrafilters, Union Ultrafilters, and the Trivial Sums Property
We answer two questions of Hindman, SteprÄns and Strauss,
namely we prove that every
strongly summable
ultrafilter on an abelian group is sparse and has the trivial
sums property. Moreover we
show that in most
cases the sparseness of the given ultrafilter is a
consequence of its being isomorphic to a union ultrafilter. However,
this does not happen
in all cases:
we also construct (assuming Martin's Axiom for countable partial
orders, i.e.
$\operatorname{cov}(\mathcal{M})=\mathfrak c$), on the
Boolean group, a strongly summable ultrafilter that
is not additively isomorphic to any union ultrafilter.

Metric Compactifications and Coarse Structures
Let $\mathbf{TB}$ be the category of totally bounded, locally
compact metric spaces
with the $C_0$ coarse structures. We show that if $X$ and $Y$
are in $\mathbf{TB}$ then $X$ and $Y$ are coarsely equivalent
if and only if their Higson coronas are homeomorphic. In fact,
the Higson corona functor gives an equivalence of categories
$\mathbf{TB}\to\mathbf{K}$, where $\mathbf{K}$ is the category
of compact metrizable spaces. We use this fact to show that the
continuously controlled coarse structure on a locally compact
space $X$ induced by some metrizable compactification $\tilde{X}$
is determined only by the topology of the remainder $\tilde{X}\setminus
X$.

Monotone Classes of Dendrites
Continua $X$ and $Y$ are monotone equivalent
if there exist monotone onto maps $f:X\longrightarrow Y$ and
$g:Y\longrightarrow X$. A continuum $X$ is isolated with respect
to monotone maps if every continuum that is monotone equivalent
to $X$ must also be homeomorphic to
$X$. In this paper we show that a dendrite $X$ is isolated with
respect to
monotone maps if and only if the set of ramification points of
$X$ is
finite. In this way we fully characterize the classes of dendrites
that are
monotone isolated.

Outer Partial Actions and Partial Skew Group Rings
We extend the classicial notion of an outer action
$\alpha$ of a group $G$ on a unital ring $A$
to the case when $\alpha$ is a partial action
on ideals, all of which have local units.
We show that if $\alpha$ is an outer partial
action of an abelian group $G$,
then its associated partial skew group
ring $A \star_\alpha G$ is simple if and only if
$A$ is $G$simple.
This result is applied to partial skew group rings associated with two different types of partial dynamical systems.

$K$theory of Furstenberg Transformation Group $C^*$algebras
The paper studies the $K$theoretic invariants of the crossed product
$C^{*}$algebras associated with an important family of homeomorphisms
of the tori $\mathbb{T}^{n}$ called Furstenberg transformations.
Using the PimsnerVoiculescu theorem, we prove that given $n$, the
$K$groups of those crossed products, whose corresponding $n\times n$
integer matrices are unipotent of maximal degree, always have the same
rank $a_{n}$. We show using the theory developed here that a claim
made in the literature about the torsion subgroups of these $K$groups
is false. Using the representation theory of the simple Lie algebra
$\frak{sl}(2,\mathbb{C})$, we show that, remarkably, $a_{n}$ has a
combinatorial significance. For example, every $a_{2n+1}$ is just the
number of ways that $0$ can be represented as a sum of integers
between $n$ and $n$ (with no repetitions). By adapting an argument
of van Lint (in which he answered a question of ErdÅs), a simple,
explicit formula for the asymptotic behavior of the sequence
$\{a_{n}\}$ is given. Finally, we describe the order structure of the
$K_{0}$groups of an important class of Furstenberg crossed products,
obtaining their complete Elliott invariant using classification
results of H. Lin and N. C. Phillips.

Nearly Countable Dense Homogeneous Spaces
We study separable metric spaces with few types of countable dense
sets. We present a structure theorem for locally compact spaces
having precisely $n$ types of countable dense sets: such a space
contains a subset $S$ of size at most $n{}1$ such that $S$ is
invariant under
all homeomorphisms of $X$ and $X\setminus S$ is countable dense
homogeneous. We prove that every Borel space having fewer than $\mathfrak{c}$
types of
countable dense sets is Polish. The natural question of whether every
Polish space has either countably many or $\mathfrak{c}$ many types of
countable
dense sets, is shown to be closely related to Topological Vaught's
Conjecture.

PFA$(S)[S]$: More Mutually Consistent Topological Consequences of $PFA$ and $V=L$
Extending the work of Larson and Todorcevic,
we show there
is a model of set theory in which normal spaces are collectionwise
Hausdorff if they are either first countable or locally compact, and
yet there are no first countable $L$spaces or compact
$S$spaces. The model is one of the form PFA$(S)[S]$, where $S$

On Best Proximity Points in Metric and Banach Spaces
In this paper we study the existence and uniqueness of
best proximity points of cyclic contractions as well as the convergence
of iterates to such proximity points. We take two different approaches,
each one leading to different results that complete, if not improve,
other similar results in the theory. Results in this paper stand for Banach
spaces, geodesic metric spaces and metric spaces. We also include an appendix
on CAT$(0)$ spaces where we study the particular behavior of these spaces
regarding the problems we are concerned with.

Mutually Aposyndetic Decomposition of Homogeneous Continua
A new decomposition, the \emph{mutually aposyndetic decomposition} of
homogeneous continua into closed, homogeneous sets is introduced. This
decomposition is respected by homeomorphisms and topologically
unique. Its quotient is a mutually aposyndetic homogeneous continuum,
and in all known examples, as well as in some general cases, the
members of the decomposition are semiindecomposable continua. As
applications, we show that hereditarily decomposable homogeneous
continua and path connected homogeneous continua are mutually
aposyndetic. A class of new examples of homogeneous continua is
defined. The mutually aposyndetic decomposition of each of these
continua is nontrivial and different from Jones' aposyndetic
decomposition.

On the Spectrum of the Equivariant Cohomology Ring
If an algebraic torus $T$ acts on a complex projective algebraic
variety $X$, then the affine scheme $\operatorname{Spec}
H^*_T(X;\mathbb C)$ associated with the equivariant cohomology is
often an arrangement of linear subspaces of the vector space
$H_2^T(X;\mathbb C).$ In many situations the ordinary cohomology ring
of $X$ can be described in terms of this arrangement.

Regular Homeomorphisms of Finite Order on Countable Spaces
We present a structure theorem for a broad class of homeomorphisms of
finite order on countable zero dimensional spaces. As applications we
show the following.
\begin{compactenum}[\rm(a)]
\item Every countable nondiscrete topological group not containing an
open Boolean subgroup can be partitioned into infinitely many dense
subsets.
\item If $G$ is a countably infinite Abelian group with finitely many
elements of order $2$ and $\beta G$ is the Stone\v Cech
compactification of $G$ as a discrete semigroup, then for every
idempotent $p\in\beta G\setminus\{0\}$, the subset
$\{p,p\}\subset\beta G$ generates algebraically the free product of
oneelement semigroups $\{p\}$ and~$\{p\}$.

Characterizing Complete Erd\H os Space
The space now known as {\em complete Erd\H os
space\/} $\cerdos$ was introduced by Paul Erd\H os in 1940 as the
closed subspace of the Hilbert space $\ell^2$ consisting of all
vectors such that every coordinate is in the convergent sequence
$\{0\}\cup\{1/n:n\in\N\}$. In a solution to a problem posed by Lex G.
Oversteegen we present simple and useful topological
characterizations of $\cerdos$.
As an application we determine the class
of factors of $\cerdos$. In another application we determine
precisely which of the spaces that can be constructed in the Banach
spaces $\ell^p$ according to the `Erd\H os method' are homeomorphic
to $\cerdos$. A novel application states that if $I$ is a
Polishable $F_\sigma$ideal on $\omega$, then $I$ with the Polish
topology is homeomorphic to either $\Z$, the Cantor set $2^\omega$,
$\Z\times2^\omega$, or $\cerdos$. This last result answers a
question that was asked
by Stevo Todor{\v{c}}evi{\'c}.

Ideas from Zariski Topology in the Study of Cubical Homology
Cubical sets and their homology have been
used in dynamical systems as well as in digital imaging. We take a
fresh look at this topic, following Zariski ideas from
algebraic geometry. The cubical topology is defined to be a
topology in $\R^d$ in which a set is closed if and only if it is
cubical. This concept is a convenient frame for describing a
variety of important features of cubical sets. Separation axioms
which, in general, are not satisfied here, characterize exactly
those pairs of points which we want to distinguish. The noetherian
property guarantees the correctness of the algorithms. Moreover, maps
between cubical sets which are continuous and closed with respect
to the cubical topology are precisely those for whom the homology
map can be defined and computed without grid subdivisions. A
combinatorial version of the VietorisBegle theorem is derived. This theorem
plays the central role in an algorithm computing homology
of maps which are continuous
with respect to the Euclidean topology.

Searching for Absolute $\mathcal{CR}$Epic Spaces
In previous papers, Barr and Raphael investigated the situation of a
topological space $Y$ and a subspace $X$ such that the induced map
$C(Y)\to C(X)$ is an epimorphism in the category $\CR$ of commutative
rings (with units). We call such an embedding a $\CR$epic embedding
and we say that $X$ is absolute $\CR$epic if every embedding of $X$
is $\CR$epic. We continue this investigation. Our most notable
result shows that a Lindel\"of space $X$ is absolute $\CR$epic if a
countable intersection of $\beta X$neighbourhoods of $X$ is a $\beta
X$neighbourhood of $X$. This condition is stable under countable
sums, the formation of closed subspaces, cozerosubspaces, and being
the domain or codomain of a perfect map. A strengthening of the
Lindel\"of property leads to a new class with the same closure
properties that is also closed under finite products. Moreover, all
\scompact spaces and all Lindel\"of $P$spaces satisfy this stronger
condition. We get some results in the nonLindel\"of case that are
sufficient to show that the Dieudonn\'e plank and some closely related
spaces are absolute $\CR$epic.

On $\mathcal{CR}$epic Embeddings and Absolute $\mathcal{CR}$epic Spaces
We study Tychonoff spaces $X$ with the property that, for all
topological embeddings $X\to Y $, the induced map $C(Y) \to C(X)$ is an
epimorphism of rings. Such spaces are called \good. The simplest
examples of \good spaces are $\sigma$compact locally compact spaces and
\Lin $P$spaces. We show that \good first countable spaces must be
locally compact.
However, a ``bad'' class of \good spaces is exhibited whose pathology
settles, in the negative, a number of open questions. Spaces which are
not \good abound, and some are presented.

Differentiability properties of optimal value functions associated with

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.

automorphisms that preserve $C(X)$, we will determine their classes in

closure of the topological full group. We will also prove that every

$C(\omega^{\omega^\alpha})$, but does not embed into
