241  Triangles of BaumslagSolitar Groups Allcock, Daniel
Our main result is that many triangles of BaumslagSolitar groups
collapse to finite groups, generalizing a famous example of Hirsch and
other examples due to several authors. A triangle of BaumslagSolitar
groups means a group with three generators, cyclically ordered, with
each generator conjugating some power of the previous one to another
power. There are six parameters, occurring in pairs, and we show that
the triangle fails to be developable whenever one of the parameters
divides its partner, except for a few special cases. Furthermore,
under fairly general conditions, the group turns out to be finite and
solvable of derived length $\leq3$. We obtain a lot of information about
finite quotients, even when we cannot determine developability.


254  Corrigendum to ``On $\mathbb{Z}$modules of Algebraic Integers'' Bell, Jason P.; Hare, Kevin G.
We fix a mistake in the proof of Theorem 1.6 in the paper in the title.


257  Compactness of Commutators for Singular Integrals on Morrey Spaces Chen, Yanping; Ding, Yong; Wang, Xinxia
In this paper we characterize the
compactness of the commutator $[b,T]$ for the singular integral
operator on the Morrey spaces $L^{p,\lambda}(\mathbb R^n)$. More
precisely, we prove that if
$b\in \operatorname{VMO}(\mathbb R^n)$, the $\operatorname {BMO}
(\mathbb R^n)$closure of $C_c^\infty(\mathbb R^n)$,
then $[b,T]$ is a compact operator on the
Morrey spaces $L^{p,\lambda}(\mathbb R^n)$ for $1\lt p\lt \infty$ and
$0\lt \lambda\lt n$. Conversely, if $b\in \operatorname{BMO}(\mathbb R^n)$ and
$[b,T]$ is a compact operator on the $L^{p,\,\lambda}(\mathbb R^n)$
for some $p\ (1\lt p\lt \infty)$, then $b\in \operatorname {VMO}(\mathbb R^n)$.
Moreover, the boundedness of a rough singular integral operator $T$
and its commutator $[b,T]$ on $L^{p,\,\lambda}(\mathbb R^n)$ are also
given. We obtain a sufficient condition for a
subset in Morrey space to be a strongly precompact set,
which has interest in its own right.


282  Level Lowering Modulo Prime Powers and Twisted Fermat Equations Dahmen, Sander R.; Yazdani, Soroosh
We discuss a clean level lowering theorem modulo prime powers
for weight $2$ cusp forms.
Furthermore, we illustrate how this can be used to completely
solve certain twisted Fermat equations
$ax^n+by^n+cz^n=0$.


301  Hermite's Constant for Function Fields Hurlburt, Chris; Thunder, Jeffrey Lin
We formulate an analog of Hermite's constant for function fields over a finite field and
state a conjectural value for this analog. We prove our conjecture in many cases, and
prove slightly weaker results in all other cases.


318  Cubic Polynomials with Periodic Cycles of a Specified Multiplier Ingram, Patrick
We consider cubic polynomials $f(z)=z^3+az+b$ defined over
$\mathbb{C}(\lambda)$, with a marked point of period $N$ and multiplier
$\lambda$. In the case $N=1$, there are infinitely many such objects,
and in the case $N\geq 3$, only finitely many (subject to a mild
assumption). The case $N=2$ has particularly rich structure, and we
are able to describe all such cubic polynomials defined over the field
$\bigcup_{n\geq 1}\mathbb{C}(\lambda^{1/n})$.


345  Salem Numbers and Pisot Numbers via Interlacing McKee, James; Smyth, Chris
We present a general construction of Salem numbers via rational
functions whose zeros and poles mostly lie on the unit circle and
satisfy an interlacing condition. This extends and unifies earlier
work. We then consider the ``obvious'' limit points of the set of Salem
numbers produced by our theorems and show that these are all Pisot
numbers, in support of a conjecture of Boyd. We then show that all
Pisot numbers arise in this way. Combining this with a theorem of
Boyd, we produce all Salem numbers via an interlacing construction.


368  C$^*$Algebras over Topological Spaces: Filtrated KTheory Meyer, Ralf; Nest, Ryszard
We define the filtrated Ktheory of a $\mathrm{C}^*$algebra over a finite topological space \(X\)
and explain how to construct a spectral sequence that computes the bivariant Kasparov theory over \(X\)
in terms of filtrated Ktheory.


409  Lifting Quasianalytic Mappings over Invariants Rainer, Armin
Let $\rho \colon G \to \operatorname{GL}(V)$ be a rational finite dimensional complex representation of a reductive linear
algebraic group $G$, and let $\sigma_1,\dots,\sigma_n$ be a system of generators of the algebra of
invariant polynomials $\mathbb C[V]^G$.
We study the problem of lifting mappings $f\colon \mathbb R^q \supseteq U \to \sigma(V) \subseteq \mathbb C^n$
over the mapping of invariants
$\sigma=(\sigma_1,\dots,\sigma_n) \colon V \to \sigma(V)$. Note that $\sigma(V)$ can be identified with the categorical quotient $V /\!\!/ G$
and its points correspond bijectively to the closed orbits in $V$. We prove that if $f$ belongs to a quasianalytic subclass
$\mathcal C \subseteq C^\infty$ satisfying some mild closedness properties that guarantee resolution of singularities in
$\mathcal C$,
e.g., the real analytic class, then $f$ admits a lift of the
same class $\mathcal C$ after desingularization by local blowups and local power substitutions.
As a consequence we show that $f$ itself allows for a lift
that belongs to $\operatorname{SBV}_{\operatorname{loc}}$, i.e., special functions of bounded variation.
If $\rho$ is a real representation of a compact Lie group, we obtain stronger versions.


429  Holomorphic Mappings between Domains in $\mathbb C^2$ Shafikov, Rasul; Verma, Kaushal
An extension theorem for holomorphic mappings between two domains in
$\mathbb C^2$ is proved under purely local hypotheses.


455  On Cardinal Invariants and Generators for von Neumann Algebras Sherman, David
We demonstrate how most common cardinal invariants associated with a von
Neumann algebra $\mathcal M$ can be computed from the decomposability number,
$\operatorname{dens}(\mathcal M)$, and the minimal cardinality of a generating
set, $\operatorname{gen}(\mathcal M)$.
Applications include the equivalence of the wellknown generator
problem, ``Is every separablyacting von Neumann algebra
singlygenerated?", with the formally stronger questions, ``Is every
countablygenerated von Neumann algebra singlygenerated?" and ``Is
the $\operatorname{gen}$ invariant monotone?" Modulo the generator problem, we
determine the range of the invariant $\bigl( \operatorname{gen}(\mathcal M),
\operatorname{dens}(\mathcal M) \bigr)$,
which is mostly governed by the inequality $\operatorname{dens}(\mathcal M) \leq
\mathfrak C^{\operatorname{gen}(\mathcal M)}$.
