Branching Rules for $n$fold Covering Groups of $\mathrm{SL}_2$ over a NonArchimedean Local Field
Let $\mathtt{G}$ be the $n$fold covering group of the special
linear group of degree two, over a nonArchimedean local field.
We determine the decomposition into irreducibles of the restriction
of the principal series representations of $\mathtt{G}$ to a maximal
compact subgroup. Moreover, we analyse those features that distinguish
this decomposition from the linear case.

Hilbert Transformation and Representation of the $ax+b$ Group
In this paper we study the Hilbert transformations over
$L^2(\mathbb{R})$
and $L^2(\mathbb{T})$ from
the viewpoint of symmetry. For a linear operator over $L^2(\mathbb{R})$
commutative with the ax+b group we show that the operator is
of the form
$
\lambda I+\eta H,
$
where $I$ and $H$ are the identity operator and Hilbert transformation
respectively, and $\lambda,\eta$ are complex numbers. In the
related literature this result was proved through first invoking
the boundedness result of the operator, proved though a big
machinery.
In our setting the boundedness is a consequence of the boundedness
of the Hilbert transformation. The methodology that we use is
GelfandNaimark's representation of the ax+b group. Furthermore
we prove a similar result on the unit circle. Although there
does not exist a group like ax+b on the unit circle, we construct
a semigroup to play the same symmetry role for the Hilbert transformations
over the circle $L^2(\mathbb{T}).$

Oscillatory HyperHilbert Transform Associated with Plane Curves
In this paper, the bounded properties of oscillatory hyperHilbert
transform along certain plane curves $\gamma(t)$
$$T_{\alpha,\beta}f(x,y)=\int_{0}^1f(xt,y\gamma(t))e^{ i t^{\beta}}\frac{\textrm{d}t}{t^{1+\alpha}}$$
were studied. For a general curves, these operators are bounded
in ${L^2(\mathbb{R}^{2})}$, if $\beta\geq 3\alpha$. And their
boundedness in $L^p(\mathbb{R}^{2})$
were also obtained, whenever $\beta\gt 3\alpha$, $\frac{2\beta}{2\beta3\alpha}\lt p\lt \frac{2\beta}{3\alpha}$.

Remarks on inner functions and optimal approximants
We discuss the concept of inner function in reproducing kernel Hilbert spaces with an orthogonal basis of monomials and examine connections between inner functions and optimal polynomial approximants to $1/f$, where $f$ is a function in the space. We revisit some classical examples from this perspective, and show how a construction of Shapiro and Shields can be modified to produce inner functions.

Characterizations of Operator BirkhoffJames Orthogonality
In this paper, we obtain some characterizations of the (strong)
BirkhoffJames orthogonality for elements of Hilbert $C^*$modules
and certain elements of $\mathbb{B}(\mathscr{H})$.
Moreover, we obtain a kind of Pythagorean relation for bounded
linear operators.
In addition, for $T\in \mathbb{B}(\mathscr{H})$ we prove that if the
norm attaining
set $\mathbb{M}_T$ is a unit sphere of some finite dimensional
subspace $\mathscr{H}_0$ of $\mathscr{H}$ and $\T\_{{{\mathscr{H}}_0}^\perp}
\lt \T\$, then for every $S\in\mathbb{B}(\mathscr{H})$, $T$ is the strong
BirkhoffJames orthogonal to $S$ if and only if there exists
a unit vector $\xi\in {\mathscr{H}}_0$ such that $\T\\xi =
T\xi$ and $S^*T\xi = 0$.
Finally, we introduce a new type of approximate orthogonality
and investigate this notion in the setting of inner product $C^*$modules.

Geometric Characterizations of Hilbert Spaces
We study some geometric properties related to the set $\Pi_X:=
\{
(x,x^*
)\in\mathsf{S}_X\times \mathsf{S}_{X^*}:x^*
(x
)=1
\}$ obtaining two characterizations of Hilbert spaces
in the category of Banach spaces. We also compute the distance
of a generic element $
(h,k
)\in H\oplus_2 H$ to $\Pi_H$ for $H$ a Hilbert space.

Nonbranching RCD$(0,N)$ Geodesic Spaces with Small Linear Diameter Growth have Finitely Generated Fundamental Groups
In this paper, we generalize the finite generation result of
Sormani
to nonbranching $RCD(0,N)$
geodesic spaces (and in particular, Alexandrov spaces) with full
support measures. This is a special case of the Milnor's Conjecture
for complete noncompact $RCD(0,N)$ spaces. One of the key tools
we use is the AbreschGromoll type excess estimates for nonsmooth
spaces obtained by GigliMosconi.

Exact and Approximate Operator Parallelism
Extending the notion of parallelism we introduce the concept of
approximate parallelism in normed spaces and then substantially
restrict ourselves to the setting of Hilbert space operators endowed
with the operator norm. We present several characterizations of the
exact and approximate operator parallelism in the algebra
$\mathbb{B}(\mathscr{H})$ of bounded linear operators acting on a
Hilbert space $\mathscr{H}$. Among other things, we investigate the
relationship between approximate parallelism and norm of inner
derivations on $\mathbb{B}(\mathscr{H})$. We also characterize the
parallel elements of a $C^*$algebra by using states. Finally we
utilize the linking algebra to give some equivalence assertions
regarding parallel elements in a Hilbert $C^*$module.

Covering the Unit Sphere of Certain Banach Spaces by Sequences of Slices and Balls
e prove that, given any covering of any infinitedimensional Hilbert space $H$ by countably many closed balls, some point exists in $H$ which belongs to infinitely many balls. We do that by characterizing isomorphically polyhedral separable Banach spaces as those whose unit sphere admits a pointfinite covering by the union of countably many slices of the unit ball.

The Essential Spectrum of the Essentially Isometric Operator
Let $T$ be a contraction on a complex, separable, infinite dimensional
Hilbert space and let $\sigma \left( T\right) $ (resp. $\sigma _{e}\left(
T\right) )$ be its spectrum (resp. essential spectrum). We assume that $T$
is an essentially isometric operator, that is $I_{H}T^{\ast }T$ is compact.
We show that if $D\diagdown \sigma \left( T\right) \neq \emptyset ,$ then
for every $f$ from the discalgebra,
\begin{equation*}
\sigma _{e}\left( f\left( T\right) \right) =f\left( \sigma _{e}\left(
T\right) \right) ,
\end{equation*}
where $D$ is the open unit disc. In addition, if $T$ lies in the class
$ C_{0\cdot }\cup C_{\cdot 0},$ then
\begin{equation*}
\sigma _{e}\left( f\left( T\right) \right) =f\left( \sigma \left( T\right)
\cap \Gamma \right) ,
\end{equation*}
where $\Gamma $ is the unit circle. Some related problems are also discussed.

Subadditivity Inequalities for Compact Operators
Some subadditivity inequalities for matrices and concave functions also hold for Hilbert space operators, but (unfortunately!) with an additional $\varepsilon$ term. It seems not possible to erase this residual term. However, in case of compact operators we show that the $\varepsilon$ term is unnecessary. Further, these inequalities are strict in a certain sense when some natural assumptions are satisfied. The discussion also stresses on matrices and their compressions and several open questions or conjectures are considered, both in the matrix and operator settings.

On the Adjoint and the Closure of the Sum of Two Unbounded Operators
We prove, under some conditions on the domains, that the adjoint of
the sum of two unbounded operators is the sum of their adjoints in
both Hilbert and Banach space settings. A similar result about the
closure of operators is also proved. Some interesting consequences
and examples "spice up" the paper.

Near Triangularizability Implies Triangularizability
In this paper we consider collections of
compact operators on a real or
complex Banach space including linear operators
on finitedimensional vector spaces. We show
that such a collection is simultaneously
triangularizable if and only if it is arbitrarily
close to a simultaneously triangularizable
collection of compact operators. As an application
of these results we obtain an invariant subspace
theorem for certain bounded operators. We
further prove that in finite dimensions near
reducibility implies reducibility whenever
the ground field is $\BR$ or $\BC$.

Ramanujan and the Modular $j$Invariant
A new infinite product $t_n$ was introduced by S.~Ramanujan on the
last page of his third notebook. In this paper, we prove
Ramanujan's assertions about $t_n$ by establishing new connections
between the modular $j$invariant and Ramanujan's cubic theory of
elliptic functions to alternative bases. We also show that for
certain integers $n$, $t_n$ generates the Hilbert class field of
$\mathbb{Q} (\sqrt{n})$. This shows that $t_n$ is a new class
invariant according to H.~Weber's definition of class invariants.
