On the Roughness of Quasinilpotency Property of Oneâparameter Semigroups
Let $\mathbf{S}:=\{S(t)\}_{t\geq0}$ be a C$_0$semigroup of quasinilpotent
operators
(i.e. $\sigma(S(t))=\{0\}$ for each $t\gt 0$).
In the dynamical systems theory the above quasinilpotency property
is equivalent
to a very strong concept of stability for the solutions of autonomous
systems.
This concept is frequently called superstability and weakens
the classical finite time extinction property
(roughly speaking, disappearing solutions).
We show that under some assumptions, the quasinilpotency, or
equivalently, the superstability property
of a C$_0$semigroup is preserved under the perturbations of
its infinitesimal generator.

Constructing Double Magma on Groups Using Commutation Operations
A magma $(M,\star)$ is a nonempty set with a binary
operation. A double magma $(M, \star, \bullet)$ is a
nonempty set with two binary operations satisfying the
interchange law,
$(w \star x) \bullet (y\star z)=(w\bullet y)\star(x \bullet
z)$. We call a double magma proper if the two operations
are distinct and commutative if the operations are commutative.
A double semigroup, first introduced by Kock,
is a double magma for which both operations are associative.
Given a nontrivial group $G$ we define a system of two magma
$(G,\star,\bullet)$ using the commutator operations $x \star
y = [x,y](=x^{1}y^{1}xy)$ and $x\bullet y = [y,x]$. We show
that $(G,\star,\bullet)$ is a double magma if and only if $G$
satisfies the commutator laws $[x,y;x,z]=1$ and $[w,x;y,z]^{2}=1$.
We note that the first law defines the class of 3metabelian
groups. If both these laws hold in $G$, the double magma is proper
if and only if there exist $x_0,y_0 \in G$ for which $[x_0,y_0]^2
\not= 1$. This double magma is a double semigroup if and only
if $G$ is nilpotent of class two. We construct a specific example
of a proper double semigroup based on the dihedral group of order
16. In addition we comment on a similar construction for rings
using Lie commutators.

Closure of the Cone of Sums of $2d$powers in Certain Weighted $\ell_1$seminorm Topologies
In a paper from 1976, Berg, Christensen and Ressel prove that the
closure of the cone of sums of squares $\sum
\mathbb{R}[\underline{X}]^2$ in the polynomial ring
$\mathbb{R}[\underline{X}] := \mathbb{R}[X_1,\dots,X_n]$ in the
topology induced by the $\ell_1$norm is equal to
$\operatorname{Pos}([1,1]^n)$, the cone consisting of all polynomials
which are nonnegative on the hypercube $[1,1]^n$. The result is
deduced as a corollary of a general result, established in the same
paper, which is valid for any commutative semigroup.
In later work, Berg and Maserick and Berg, Christensen and Ressel
establish an even more general result, for a commutative semigroup
with involution, for the closure of the cone of sums of squares of
symmetric elements in the weighted $\ell_1$seminorm topology
associated to an absolute value.
In the present paper we give a new proof of these results which is
based on Jacobi's representation theorem from 2001. At the same time,
we use Jacobi's representation theorem to extend these results from
sums of squares to sums of $2d$powers, proving, in particular, that
for any integer $d\ge 1$, the closure of the cone of sums of
$2d$powers $\sum \mathbb{R}[\underline{X}]^{2d}$ in
$\mathbb{R}[\underline{X}]$ in the topology induced by the
$\ell_1$norm is equal to $\operatorname{Pos}([1,1]^n)$.

Inverse Semigroups and Sheu's Groupoid for the Odd Dimensional Quantum Spheres
In this paper, we give a different proof of the fact that the odd dimensional
quantum spheres are groupoid $C^{*}$algebras. We show that the $C^{*}$algebra
$C(S_{q}^{2\ell+1})$ is generated by an inverse semigroup $T$ of partial
isometries. We show that the groupoid $\mathcal{G}_{tight}$ associated with the
inverse semigroup $T$ by Exel is exactly the same as the groupoid
considered by Sheu.

CesÃ ro Operators on the Hardy Spaces of the HalfPlane
In this article we study the CesÃ ro
operator
$$
\mathcal{C}(f)(z)=\frac{1}{z}\int_{0}^{z}f(\zeta)\,d\zeta,
$$
and its companion operator $\mathcal{T}$ on Hardy spaces of the
upper half plane. We identify $\mathcal{C}$ and $\mathcal{T}$ as
resolvents for appropriate semigroups of composition operators and we
find the norm and the spectrum in each case. The relation of
$\mathcal{C}$ and $\mathcal{T}$ with the corresponding Ces\`{a}ro
operators on Lebesgue spaces $L^p(\mathbb R)$ of the boundary line is also
discussed.

Equivalence of $L_p$ Stability and Exponential Stability of Nonlinear Lipschitzian Semigroups
$L_p$ stability and exponential stability are two important concepts
for nonlinear dynamic systems. In this paper, we prove that a
nonlinear exponentially bounded Lipschitzian semigroup is
exponentially stable if and only if the semigroup is $L_p$ stable
for some $p>0$. Based on the equivalence, we derive two sufficient
conditions for exponential stability of the nonlinear semigroup. The
results obtained extend and improve some existing ones.

Inner $E_0$Semigroups on Infinite Factors
This paper is concerned with the structure of
inner $E_0$semigroups. We show that any inner
$E_0$semigroup acting on an infinite factor
$M$ is completely determined by a continuous
tensor product system of Hilbert spaces in
$M$ and that the product system associated
with an inner $E_0$semigroup is a complete cocycle conjugacy invariant.

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.
