A spectral identity on Jacobi polynomials and its analytic implications
The Jacobi coefficients $c^{\ell}_{j}(\alpha,\beta)$ ($1\leq
j\leq \ell$, $\alpha,\beta\gt 1$) are linked to the Maclaurin
spectral expansion of the Schwartz kernel of functions of the
Laplacian on a compact rank one symmetric space. It
is proved that these coefficients can be computed by transforming
the even derivatives of the the Jacobi polynomials $P_{k}^{(\alpha,\beta)}$ ($k\geq 0, \alpha,\beta\gt 1$) into a spectral sum associated with
the Jacobi operator. The first few coefficients are explicitly
computed and a direct trace
interpretation of the Maclaurin coefficients is presented.

A remark on certain integral operators of fractional type
For $m, n \in \mathbb{N}$, $1\lt m \leq n$, we write $n = n_1 +
\dots + n_m$ where $\{ n_1, \dots, n_m \} \subset \mathbb{N}$. Let
$A_1, \dots, A_m$ be $n \times n$ singular real matrices such that
$\bigoplus_{i=1}^{m} \bigcap_{1\leq j \neq i \leq m} \mathcal{N}_j
= \mathbb{R}^{n},$ where
$\mathcal{N}_j = \{ x : A_j x = 0 \}$, $dim(\mathcal{N}_j)=nn_j$
and $A_1+ \dots+ A_m$ is invertible. In this paper we study integral
operators of the form
$T_{r}f(x)= \int_{\mathbb{R}^{n}} \, xA_1 y^{n_1 + \alpha_1}
\cdots xA_m y^{n_m + \alpha_m} f(y) \, dy,$
$n_1 + \dots + n_m = n$, $\frac{\alpha_1}{n_1} = \dots = \frac{\alpha_m}{n_m}=r$,
$0 \lt r \lt 1$, and the matrices $A_i$'s are as above. We obtain
the $H^{p}(\mathbb{R}^{n})L^{q}(\mathbb{R}^{n})$ boundedness
of $T_r$ for $0\lt p\lt \frac{1}{r}$ and $\frac{1}{q}=\frac{1}{p} 
r$.

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.

Lie derivatives and Ricci tensor on real hypersurfaces in complex twoplane Grassmannians
On a real hypersurface $M$ in a complex twoplane Grassmannian
$G_2({\mathbb C}^{m+2})$ we have the Lie derivation ${\mathcal
L}$ and a differential operator of order one associated to the
generalized TanakaWebster connection $\widehat {\mathcal L}
^{(k)}$. We give a classification of real hypersurfaces $M$ on
$G_2({\mathbb C}^{m+2})$ satisfying
$\widehat {\mathcal L} ^{(k)}_{\xi}S={\mathcal L}_{\xi}S$, where
$\xi$ is the Reeb vector field on $M$ and $S$ the Ricci tensor
of $M$.

Injectivity of Generalized Wronski Maps
We study linear projections on PlÃ¼cker space whose restriction
to the Grassmannian is a nontrivial branched
cover.
When an automorphism of the Grassmannian preserves the fibers,
we show that the Grassmannian is necessarily
of $m$dimensional linear subspaces in a symplectic vector
space of dimension $2m$, and the linear map is
the Lagrangian involution.
The Wronski map for a selfadjoint linear differential operator
and pole placement map for
symmetric linear systems are natural examples.

On Gibbs Measures and Spectra of Ruelle Transfer Operators
We prove a comprehensive version of the RuellePerronFrobenius
Theorem
with explicit estimates of the spectral radius of the Ruelle
transfer operator and various other
quantities related to spectral properties of this operator. The
novelty here is that the HÃ¶lder
constant of the function generating the operator appears only
polynomially, not exponentially as
in previous known estimates.

Nilpotent Group C*algebras as Compact Quantum Metric Spaces
Let $\mathbb{L}$ be a length function on a group $G$, and let $M_\mathbb{L}$
denote the
operator of pointwise multiplication by $\mathbb{L}$ on $\lt(G)$.
Following Connes,
$M_\mathbb{L}$ can be used as a ``Dirac'' operator for the reduced
group C*algebra $C_r^*(G)$. It defines a
Lipschitz seminorm on $C_r^*(G)$, which defines a metric on the
state space of
$C_r^*(G)$. We show that
for any length function satisfying a strong form of polynomial
growth on a discrete group,
the topology from this metric
coincides with the
weak$*$ topology (a key property for the
definition of a ``compact quantum metric
space''). In particular, this holds for all wordlength functions
on finitely generated nilpotentbyfinite groups.

Normal Extensions of Representations of Abelian Semigroups
A commuting family of subnormal operators need
not have a commuting normal extension. We study when a representation
on an abelian semigroup can be extended to a normal representation,
and show that it suffices to extend the set of generators to
commuting normals. We also extend a result due to Athavale to
representations on abelian lattice ordered semigroups.

In this note, we study the recurrence and topologically multiple

locally compact group, to be topologically multiply recurrent.

Factoring a Quadratic Operator as a Product of Two Positive Contractions
Let $T$ be a quadratic operator on a complex Hilbert space $H$.
We show that $T$ can be written as a product of two positive
contractions if and only if $T$ is of the form
\begin{equation*}
aI \oplus bI \oplus
\begin{pmatrix} aI & P \cr 0 & bI \cr
\end{pmatrix} \quad \text{on} \quad H_1\oplus H_2\oplus (H_3\oplus
H_3)
\end{equation*}
for some $a, b\in [0,1]$ and strictly positive operator $P$ with
$\P\ \le \sqrt{a}  \sqrt{b}\sqrt{(1a)(1b)}.$ Also, we
give a necessary condition for a bounded linear operator $T$
with operator matrix
$
\big(
\begin{smallmatrix} T_1 & T_3
\\ 0 & T_2\cr
\end{smallmatrix}
\big)
$ on $H\oplus K$ that can be written as a product
of two positive contractions.

Infinitely Many Rotationally Symmetric Solutions to a Class of Semilinear LaplaceBeltrami Equations on Spheres
We show that a class of semilinear LaplaceBeltrami equations
on the unit sphere
in $\mathbb{R}^n$ has infinitely many rotationally symmetric solutions.
The solutions to
these equations are the solutions to a two point boundary value
problem for a
singular ordinary differential equation. We prove the existence
of such solutions
using energy and phase plane analysis. We derive a
Pohozaevtype
identity
in
order to prove that the energy to an associated initial value
problem tends
to infinity as the energy at the singularity tends to infinity.
The nonlinearity is allowed to grow as fast as $s^{p1}s$ for
$s$ large
with $1 \lt p \lt (n+5)/(n3)$.

On the Regularity of the Multisublinear Maximal Functions
This paper is concerned with the study of
the regularity for the multisublinear maximal operator. It is
proved that the multisublinear maximal operator is bounded on
firstorder Sobolev spaces. Moreover, two key pointwise
inequalities for the partial derivatives of the multisublinear
maximal functions are established. As an application, the
quasicontinuity on the multisublinear maximal function is also
obtained.
