Weighted Norm Inequalities for a Maximal Operator in Some Subspace of Amalgams
We give weighted norm inequalities for the maximal fractional operator $ \mathcal M_{q,\beta }$ of HardyÂLittlewood and the fractional integral $I_{\gamma}$. These inequalities are established between $(L^{q},L^{p}) ^{\alpha }(X,d,\mu )$ spaces (which are superspaces of Lebesgue spaces $L^{\alpha}(X,d,\mu)$ and subspaces of amalgams $(L^{q},L^{p})(X,d,\mu)$) and in the setting of space of homogeneous type $(X,d,\mu)$. The conditions on the weights are stated in terms of Orlicz norm.

Boundedness From Below of Multiplication Operators Between $\alpha$Bloch Spaces
In this paper, the boundedness from below of multiplication
operators between $\alpha$Bloch spaces $\mathcal B^\alpha$, $\alpha\gt 0$, on the
unit disk $D$ is studied completely. For a bounded multiplication
operator $M_u\colon \mathcal B^\alpha\to\mathcal B^\beta$, defined by $M_uf=uf$ for
$f\in\mathcal B^\alpha$, we prove the following result:
(i) If $0\lt \beta\lt \alpha$, or
$0\lt \alpha\le1$ and $\alpha\lt \beta$, $M_u$ is not bounded below;
(ii) if $0\lt \alpha=\beta\le1$, $M_u$ is bounded below if and only if
$\liminf_{z\to\partial D}u(z)\gt 0$;
(iii) if $1\lt \alpha\le\beta$, $M_u$ is
bounded below if and only if there exist a $\delta\gt 0$ and a positive
$r\lt 1$ such that for every point $z\in D$ there is a point $z'\in
D$ with the property $d(z',z)\lt r$ and
$(1z'^2)^{\beta\alpha}u(z')\ge\delta$, where $d(\cdot,\cdot)$ denotes
the pseudodistance on $D$.

Approximation and Interpolation by Entire Functions of Several Variables
Let $f\colon \mathbb R^n\to \mathbb R$ be $C^\infty$ and let $h\colon
\mathbb R^n\to\mathbb R$ be positive
and continuous. For any unbounded nondecreasing sequence $\{c_k\}$
of nonnegative real numbers and for any sequence without
accumulation points $\{x_m\}$ in $\mathbb R^n$, there exists an entire
function $g\colon\mathbb C^n\to\mathbb C$ taking real values on $\mathbb R^n$ such that
\begin{align*}
&g^{(\alpha)}(x)f^{(\alpha)}(x)\lt h(x), \quad x\ge c_k, \alpha\le k,

Some Infinite Products of Ramanujan Type
In his ``lost'' notebook, Ramanujan stated two results, which are equivalent to the identities
\[
\prod_{n=1}^{\infty} \frac{(1q^n)^5}{(1q^{5n})}
=15\sum_{n=1}^{\infty}\Big( \sum_{d \mid n} \qu{5}{d} d \Big) q^n
\]
and
\[
q\prod_{n=1}^{\infty} \frac{(1q^{5n})^5}{(1q^{n})}
=\sum_{n=1}^{\infty}\Big( \sum_{d \mid n} \qu{5}{n/d} d \Big) q^n.

Two Volume Product Inequalities and Their Applications
Let $K \subset {\mathbb{R}}^{n+1}$ be a convex body of class $C^2$
with everywhere positive Gauss curvature. We show that there exists
a positive number $\delta (K)$ such that for any $\delta \in (0,
\delta(K))$ we have $\Volu(K_{\delta})\cdot
\Volu((K_{\delta})^{\sstar}) \geq \Volu(K)\cdot \Volu(K^{\sstar}) \geq
\Volu(K^{\delta})\cdot \Volu((K^{\delta})^{\sstar})$, where $K_{\delta}$,
$K^{\delta}$ and $K^{\sstar}$ stand for the convex floating body, the
illumination body, and the polar of $K$, respectively. We derive a
few consequences of these inequalities.

Covering Discs in Minkowski Planes
We investigate the following version of the circle covering
problem in strictly convex (normed or) Minkowski planes: to cover
a circle of largest possible diameter by $k$ unit circles. In
particular, we study the cases $k=3$, $k=4$, and $k=7$. For $k=3$
and $k=4$, the diameters under consideration are described in
terms of sidelengths and circumradii of certain inscribed regular
triangles or quadrangles. This yields also simple explanations of
geometric meanings that the corresponding homothety ratios have.
It turns out that basic notions from Minkowski geometry play an
essential role in our proofs, namely Minkowskian bisectors,
$d$segments, and the monotonicity lemma.

Transversals with Residue in Moderately Overlapping $T(k)$Families of Translates
Let $K$ denote an oval, a centrally symmetric compact convex domain
with nonempty interior. A family of translates of $K$ is said to have
property $T(k)$ if for every subset of at most $k$ translates there
exists a common line transversal intersecting all of them. The integer
$k$ is the stabbing level of the family.
Two translates $K_i = K + c_i$ and $K_j = K + c_j$ are said to be
$\sigma$disjoint if $\sigma K + c_i$ and $\sigma K + c_j$ are disjoint.
A recent Hellytype result claims that for every
$\sigma > 0 $ there exists an integer $k(\sigma)$ such that if a
family of $\sigma$disjoint unit diameter discs has property $T(k) k
\geq k(\sigma)$, then there exists a straight line meeting all members
of the family. In the first part of the paper we give the extension of
this theorem to translates of an oval $K$. The asymptotic behavior of
$k(\sigma)$ for $\sigma \rightarrow 0$ is considered as well.
Katchalski and Lewis proved the existence of a constant $r$ such that
for every pairwise disjoint family of translates of an oval $K$ with
property $T(3)$ a straight line can be found meeting all but at most
$r$ members of the family. In the second part of the paper
$\sigma$disjoint families of translates of $K$ are considered and the
relation of $\sigma$ and the residue $r$ is investigated. The
asymptotic behavior of $r(\sigma)$ for $\sigma \rightarrow 0$ is also
discussed.

A Class of Cellulated Spheres with NonPolytopal Symmetries
We construct, for all $d\geq 4$, a cellulation of $\mathbb S^{d1}$.
We prove that these cellulations cannot be polytopal with maximal
combinatorial symmetry. Such nonrealizability phenomenon was first
described in dimension 4 by Bokowski, Ewald and Kleinschmidt, and,
to the knowledge of the author, until now there have not been any
known examples in higher dimensions. As a starting point for the
construction, we introduce a new class of (Wythoffian) uniform
polytopes, which we call duplexes. In proving our main result,
we use some tools that we developed earlier while studying perfect
polytopes. In particular, we prove perfectness of the duplexes;
furthermore, we prove and make use of the perfectness of another
new class of polytopes which we obtain by a variant of the socalled
$E$construction introduced by Eppstein, Kuperberg and Ziegler.

Extension of the Riemann $\xi$Function's Logarithmic Derivative Positivity Region to Near the Critical Strip
If $K$ is a number field with $n_k=[k:\mathbb{Q}]$, and $\xi_k$
the symmetrized
Dedekind zeta function of the field, the inequality
$$\Re\,{\frac{ \xi_k'(\sigma + {\rm i} t)}{\xi_k(\sigma
+ {\rm i} t)}} > \frac{ \xi_k'(\sigma)}{\xi_k(\sigma)}$$ for $t\neq 0$ is
shown
to be true for $\sigma\ge 1+ 8/n_k^\frac{1}{3}$ improving the result of
Lagarias where the constant in the inequality was 9. In the case $k=\mathbb{Q}$
the
inequality is extended to $\si\ge 1$ for all $t$ sufficiently large or small
and to the region $\si\ge 1+1/(\log t 5)$ for all $t\neq 0$. This
answers positively a question posed by Lagarias.

DunfordPettis Properties and Spaces of Operators
J. Elton used an application of Ramsey theory to show that
if $X$ is an infinite dimensional Banach space,
then $c_0$ embeds in $X$, $\ell_1$ embeds in $X$, or there
is a subspace of $X$ that fails to have the DunfordPettis property.
Bessaga and Pelczynski showed that if $c_0$ embeds in $X^*$,
then $\ell_\infty$ embeds in $X^*$. Emmanuele and John showed
that if $c_0$ embeds in $K(X,Y)$, then $K(X,Y)$ is not
complemented in $L(X,Y)$. Classical results from Schauder basis theory
are used in a study of DunfordPettis sets and strong
DunfordPettis sets to extend each of the preceding theorems. The space
$L_{w^*}(X^* , Y)$ of $w^*w$ continuous operators is also studied.

Generic QuasiConvergence for Essentially Strongly OrderPreserving Semiflows
By employing the limit set
dichotomy for essentially strongly orderpreserving semiflows and
the assumption that limit sets have infima and suprema in the
state space, we prove a generic quasiconvergence principle
implying the existence of an open and dense set of stable
quasiconvergent points. We also apply this generic quasiconvergence principle
to a model for biochemical feedback in protein
synthesis and obtain some results about the model which are of theoretical
and realistic significance.

such that $f+F \subseteq \ham$. From the previous work of the author

Essential Surfaces in Graph Link Exteriors
An irreducible graph manifold $M$ contains an essential torus if
it is not a special Seifert manifold.
Whether $M$ contains a closed essential surface of
negative Euler characteristic or not
depends on the difference of Seifert fibrations from the two sides
of a torus system which splits $M$ into Seifert manifolds.
However,
it is not easy to characterize geometrically the class of
irreducible graph manifolds which contain such surfaces.
This article studies this problem in the case of graph link exteriors.
