A characterization of $C^{\ast}$normed algebras via positive functionals
We give a characterization of $C^{\ast}$normed algebras, among
certain involutive normed ones. This is done through the existence
of enough specific positive functionals. The same question is
also
examined in some non normed (topological) algebras.
Keywords:$C^{\ast}$normed algebra, $C^*$algebra, (pre)locally $C^*$algebra, pre$C^*$bornological algebra, positive functional, locally uniformly $A$convex algebra, perfect locally $m$convex algebra, $C^*$(resp. $^*$) subnormable algebra Categories:46H05, 46K05

A Homological Property and Arens Regularity of Locally Compact Quantum Groups
We characterize two important notions of amenability and compactness
of
a locally compact quantum group ${\mathbb G}$ in terms of certain
homological
properties. For this, we show that ${\mathbb G}$ is character
amenable if and only if it is both amenable and coamenable.
We finally apply our results to
Arens regularity problems of the quantum group algebra
$L^1({\mathbb G})$; in particular, we improve an interesting result
by Hu, Neufang and Ruan.

Generalized Goldberg Formula
In this paper we prove a useful formula for the graded commutator
of the Hodge
codifferential with the left wedge multiplication by a fixed
$p$form acting on
the de Rham algebra of a Riemannian manifold. Our formula generalizes
a formula
stated by Samuel I. Goldberg for the case of 1forms. As first
examples of
application we obtain new identities on locally conformally KÃ¤hler
manifolds
and quasiSasakian manifolds. Moreover, we prove that under suitable
conditions
a certain subalgebra of differential forms in a compact manifold
is quasiisomorphic as a CDGA to the full de Rham algebra.

On the Hereditary Paracompactness of Locally Compact, Hereditarily Normal Spaces

supercompact cardinal, then it is consistent that every locally
compact, hereditarily normal space which does not include a perfect
preimage of $\omega_1$ is hereditarily paracompact.

Free Locally Convex Spaces and the $k$space Property
Let $L(X)$ be the free locally convex space over a Tychonoff space $X$. Then $L(X)$ is a $k$space if and only if $X$ is a countable discrete space. We prove also that $L(D)$ has uncountable tightness for every uncountable discrete space $D$.

How Lipschitz Functions Characterize the Underlying Metric Spaces
Let $X, Y$ be metric spaces and $E, F$ be Banach spaces. Suppose that
both $X,Y$ are realcompact, or both $E,F$ are realcompact.
The zero set of a vectorvalued function $f$ is denoted by $z(f)$.
A linear bijection $T$ between local or generalized Lipschitz vectorvalued function spaces
is said to preserve zeroset containments or nonvanishing functions
if
\[z(f)\subseteq z(g)\quad\Longleftrightarrow\quad z(Tf)\subseteq z(Tg),\]
or
\[z(f) = \emptyset\quad \Longleftrightarrow\quad z(Tf)=\emptyset,\]
respectively.
Every zeroset containment preserver, and every nonvanishing function preserver when
$\dim E =\dim F\lt +\infty$, is a weighted composition operator
$(Tf)(y)=J_y(f(\tau(y)))$.
We show that the map $\tau\colon Y\to X$ is a locally (little) Lipschitz homeomorphism.

Compact Operators in Regular LCQ Groups
We show that a regular locally compact quantum group $\mathbb{G}$ is discrete
if and only if $\mathcal{L}^{\infty}(\mathbb{G})$ contains nonzero compact operators on
$\mathcal{L}^{2}(\mathbb{G})$.
As a corollary we classify all discrete quantum groups among
regular locally compact quantum groups $\mathbb{G}$ where
$\mathcal{L}^{1}(\mathbb{G})$ has the RadonNikodym property.

A Note on Amenability of Locally Compact Quantum Groups
In this short note we introduce a notion called ``quantum injectivity''
of locally compact quantum groups, and prove that it is equivalent
to amenability of the dual. Particularly, this provides a new characterization
of amenability of locally compact groups.

Characterization of Simple Highest Weight Modules
We prove that for simple complex finite dimensional
Lie algebras, affine KacMoody Lie algebras, the
Virasoro algebra and the HeisenbergVirasoro algebra,
simple highest weight modules are characterized
by the property that all positive root elements
act on these modules locally nilpotently. We
also show that this is not the case for higher rank
Virasoro and for Heisenberg algebras.

Products and Direct Sums in Locally Convex Cones
In this paper we define lower, upper, and symmetric completeness and
discuss closure of the sets in product and direct sums. In particular,
we introduce suitable bases for these topologies, which leads us to
investigate completeness of the direct sum and its components. Some
results obtained about $X$topologies and polars of the neighborhoods.

Some Remarks on the Algebraic Sum of Ideals and Riesz Subspaces
Following ideas used by Drewnowski and Wilansky we prove that if $I$
is an infinite dimensional and
infinite codimensional closed ideal in a complete metrizable locally
solid Riesz space and $I$ does
not contain any order copy of $\mathbb R^{\mathbb N}$ then there exists a
closed, separable, discrete Riesz subspace
$G$ such that the topology induced on $G$ is Lebesgue, $I \cap G =
\{0\}$, and $I + G$ is not closed.

On Sha's Secondary ChernEuler Class
For a manifold with boundary, the restriction of Chern's transgression
form of the Euler curvature form over the boundary is closed. Its
cohomology class is called the secondary ChernEuler class and was
used by Sha to formulate a relative PoincarÃ©Hopf theorem under the
condition that the metric on the manifold is locally product near the
boundary. We show that the secondary ChernEuler form is exact away
from the outward and inward unit normal vectors of the boundary by
explicitly constructing a transgression form. Using Stokes' theorem,
this evaluates the boundary term in Sha's relative PoincarÃ©Hopf
theorem in terms of more classical indices of the tangential
projection of a vector field. This evaluation in particular shows
that Sha's relative PoincarÃ©Hopf theorem is equivalent to the more
classical law of vector fields.

Homogeneous Suslinian Continua
A continuum is said to be Suslinian if it does not
contain uncountably many
mutually exclusive nondegenerate subcontinua. Fitzpatrick and
Lelek have shown that a metric Suslinian continuum $X$ has the
property that the set of points at which $X$ is connected im
kleinen is dense in $X$. We extend their result to Hausdorff Suslinian continua
and obtain a number of corollaries. In particular, we prove that a homogeneous,
nondegenerate, Suslinian continuum is a simple closed curve and that each separable,
nondegenerate, homogenous, Suslinian continuum is metrizable.

Relative Homotopy in Relational Structures
The homotopy groups of a finite partially ordered set (poset) can be
described entirely in the context of posets, as shown in a paper by
B. Larose and C. Tardif.
In this paper we describe the relative version of such a
homotopy theory, for pairs $(X,A)$ where $X$ is a poset and $A$ is a
subposet of $X$. We also prove some theorems on the relevant version
of the notion of weak homotopy equivalences for maps of pairs of such
objects. We work in the category of reflexive binary relational
structures which contains the posets as in the work of Larose and
Tardif.

Existence of Positive Solutions for Nonlinear Noncoercive Hemivariational Inequalities
In this paper we investigate the existence of positive solutions
for nonlinear elliptic problems driven by the $p$Laplacian with a
nonsmooth potential (hemivariational inequality). Under asymptotic
conditions that make the Euler functional indefinite and
incorporate in our framework the asymptotically linear problems,
using a variational approach based on nonsmooth critical point
theory, we obtain positive smooth solutions. Our analysis also
leads naturally to multiplicity results.

On Suslinian Continua
A continuum is said to be Suslinian if it does not contain uncountably
many mutually exclusive nondegenerate subcontinua. We prove that
Suslinian continua are perfectly normal and rimmetrizable. Locally
connected Suslinian continua have weight at most $\omega_1$ and under
appropriate settheoretic conditions are metrizable. Nonseparable
locally connected Suslinian continua are rimfinite on some open set.

Combinatorics of Words and Semigroup Algebras Which Are Sums of Locally Nilpotent Subalgebras
We construct new examples of nonnil algebras with any number of
generators, which are direct sums of two
locally nilpotent subalgebras. Like all previously known examples, our examples
are contracted semigroup algebras and the underlying semigroups are unions
of locally nilpotent subsemigroups.
In our constructions we make more
transparent
than in the past the close relationship between the considered problem
and combinatorics of words.
