Simple Decompositions of the Exceptional Jordan Algebra
This paper presents some
results on the simple exceptional Jordan algebra over an algebraically
closed field $\Phi$ of characteristic not $2$. Namely an example of
simple decomposition of $H(O_3)$ into the sum of two subalgebras
of the type $H(Q_3)$ is produced, and it is shown that this
decomposition is the only one possible in terms of simple
subalgebras.

Conjugacy Classes of Subalgebras of the Real Sedenions
By applying the CayleyDickson process to the division algebra
of real octonions, one obtains a 16dimensional real algebra
known as (real) sedenions. We denote this algebra by $\bA_4$.
It is a flexible quadratic algebra (with unit element 1) but
not a division algebra.
We classify the subalgebras of $\bA_4$ up to conjugacy (\emph{i.e.,}
up to the action of the automorphism group $G$ of $\bA_4$)
with one exception: we leave aside the more complicated case
of classifying the quaternion subalgebras.
Any nonzero subalgebra contains 1 and we show that there are
no proper subalgebras of dimension 5, 7 or $>8$.
The proper nondivision subalgebras have dimensions
3, 6 and 8. We show that in each of these dimensions
there is exactly one conjugacy class of such subalgebras.
There are infinitely many conjugacy classes of subalgebras in
dimensions 2 and 4, but only 4 conjugacy classes in dimension 8.

Separation of Variables for $U_{q}(\mathfrak{sl}_{n+1})^{+}$
Let $U_{q}(\SL)^{+}$ be the positive part of the quantized enveloping
algebra $U_{q}(\SL)$. Using results of AlevDumas and Caldero related
to the center of $U_{q}(\SL)^{+}$, we show that this algebra is free
over its center. This is reminiscent of Kostant's separation of
variables for the enveloping algebra $U(\g)$ of a complex semisimple
Lie algebra $\g$, and also of an analogous result of JosephLetzter
for the quantum algebra $\Check{U}_{q}(\g)$. Of greater importance to
its representation theory is the fact that $\U{+}$ is free over a
larger polynomial subalgebra $N$ in $n$ variables. Induction from $N$
to $\U{+}$ provides infinitedimensional modules with good properties,
including a grading that is inherited by submodules.

$B$Stable Ideals in the Nilradical of a Borel Subalgebra
We count the number of strictly positive $B$stable ideals in the
nilradical of a Borel subalgebra and prove that
the minimal roots of any $B$stable ideal are conjugate
by an element of the Weyl group to a subset of the simple roots.
We also count the number of ideals whose minimal roots are conjugate
to a fixed subset of simple roots.

On the Garsia Lie Idempotent
The orthogonal projection of the free associative algebra onto the
free Lie algebra is afforded by an idempotent in the rational group
algebra of the symmetric group $S_n$, in each homogenous degree
$n$. We give various characterizations of this Lie idempotent and show
that it is uniquely determined by a certain unit in the group algebra
of $S_{n1}$. The inverse of this unit, or, equivalently, the Gram
matrix of the orthogonal projection, is described explicitly. We also
show that the Garsia Lie idempotent is not constant on descent classes
(in fact, not even on coplactic classes) in $S_n$.

Diagonal Plus Tridiagonal Representatives for Symplectic Congruence Classes of Symmetric Matrices
Let $n=2m$ be even and denote by $\Sp_n(F)$ the symplectic group
of rank $m$ over an infinite field $F$ of characteristic different
from $2$. We show that any $n\times n$ symmetric matrix $A$ is
equivalent under symplectic congruence transformations to the
direct sum of $m\times m$ matrices $B$ and $C$, with $B$ diagonal
and $C$ tridiagonal. Since the $\Sp_n(F)$module of symmetric
$n\times n$ matrices over $F$ is isomorphic to the adjoint module
$\sp_n(F)$, we infer that any adjoint orbit of $\Sp_n(F)$ in
$\sp_n(F)$ has a representative in the sum of $3m1$ root spaces,
which we explicitly determine.

Cartan Subalgebras of $\mathfrak{gl}_\infty$
Let $V$ be a vector space over a field $\mathbb{K}$ of characteristic
zero and $V_*$ be a space of linear functionals on $V$ which separate
the points of $V$. We consider $V\otimes V_*$ as a Lie algebra of
finite rank operators on $V$, and set $\mathfrak{gl} (V,V_*) :=
V\otimes V_*$. We define a Cartan subalgebra of $\mathfrak{gl}
(V,V_*)$ as the centralizer of a maximal subalgebra every element of
which is semisimple, and then give the following description of all
Cartan subalgebras of $\mathfrak{gl} (V,V_*)$ under the assumption
that $\mathbb{K}$ is algebraically closed. A subalgebra of
$\mathfrak{gl} (V,V_*)$ is a Cartan subalgebra if and only if it
equals $\bigoplus_j \bigl( V_j \otimes (V_j)_* \bigr) \oplus (V^0 \otimes
V_*^0)$ for some onedimensional subspaces $V_j \subseteq V$ and
$(V_j)_* \subseteq V_*$ with $(V_i)_* (V_j) = \delta_{ij} \mathbb{K}$
and such that the spaces $V_*^0 = \bigcap_j (V_j)^\bot \subseteq V_*$
and $V^0 = \bigcap_j \bigl( (V_j)_* \bigr)^\bot \subseteq V$ satisfy
$V_*^0 (V^0) = \{0\}$. We then discuss explicit constructions of
subspaces $V_j$ and $(V_j)_*$ as above. Our second main result claims
that a Cartan subalgebra of $\mathfrak{gl} (V,V_*)$ can be described
alternatively as a locally nilpotent selfnormalizing subalgebra whose
adjoint representation is locally finite, or as a subalgebra
$\mathfrak{h}$ which coincides with the maximal locally nilpotent
$\mathfrak{h}$submodule of $\mathfrak{gl} (V,V_*)$, and such that the
adjoint representation of $\mathfrak{h}$ is locally finite.

A New Class of Representations of EALA Coordinated by Quantum Tori in Two Variables
We study the representations of extended affine Lie algebras
$s\ell_{\ell+1} (\mathbb{C}_q)$ where $q$ is $N$th primitive root of
unity ($\mathbb{C}_q$ is the quantum torus in two variables). We
first prove that $\bigoplus s\ell_{\ell+1} (\mathbb{C})$ for a
suitable number of copies is a quotient of $s\ell_{\ell+1}
(\mathbb{C}_q)$. Thus any finite dimensional irreducible module for
$\bigoplus s\ell_{\ell+1} (\mathbb{C})$ lifts to a representation of
$s\ell_{\ell+1} (\mathbb{C}_q)$. Conversely, we prove that any finite
dimensional irreducible module for $s\ell_{\ell+1} (\mathbb{C}_q)$
comes from above. We then construct modules for the extended affine
Lie algebras $s\ell_{\ell+1} (\mathbb{C}_q) \oplus \mathbb{C} d_1
\oplus \mathbb{C} d_2$ which is integrable and has finite dimensional
weight spaces.

Postcards from the Edge, or Snapshots of the Theory of Generalised Moonshine
We begin by reviewing Monstrous Moonshine. The impact of Moonshine on
algebra has been profound, but so far it has had little to teach
number theory. We introduce (using `postcards') a much larger context
in which Monstrous Moonshine naturally sits. This context suggests
Moonshine should indeed have consequences for number theory. We
provide some humble examples of this: new generalisations of Gauss
sums and quadratic reciprocity.

Subalgebras of $\gc_N$ and Jacobi Polynomials
We classify the subalgebras of the general Lie conformal algebra
$\gc_N$ that act irreducibly on $\mathbb{C} [\partial]^N$ and that
are normalized by the sl$_2$part of a Virasoro element. The
problem turns out to be closely related to classical Jacobi
polynomials $P_n^{(\sigma,\sigma)}$, $\sigma \in \mathbb{C}$. The
connection goes both wayswe use in our classification some
classical properties of Jacobi polynomials, and we derive from the
theory of conformal algebras some apparently new properties of
Jacobi polynomials.

Properties of the Invariants of Solvable Lie Algebras
We generalize to a field of characteristic zero certain properties of
the invariant functions of the coadjoint representation of solvable
Lie algebras with abelian nilradicals, previously obtained over the
base field $\bbC$ of complex numbers. In particular we determine
their number and the restricted type of variables on which they
depend. We also determine an upper bound on the maximal number of
functionally independent invariants for certain families of solvable
Lie algebras with arbitrary nilradicals.

Resolutions of Associative and Lie Algebras
Certain canonical resolutions are described for free associative and
free Lie algebras in the category of nonassociative algebras. These
resolutions derive in both cases from geometric objects, which in turn
reflect the combinatorics of suitable collections of leaflabeled
trees.

Spherical Functions on $\SO_0(p,q)/\SO(p)\times \SO(q)$
An integral formula is derived for the spherical functions on the
symmetric space $G/K=\break
\SO_0(p,q)/\SO(p)\times \SO(q)$. This formula
allows us to state some results about the analytic continuation of
the spherical functions to a tubular neighbourhood of the
subalgebra $\a$ of the abelian part in the decomposition $G=KAK$.
The corresponding result is then obtained for the heat kernel of the
symmetric space $\SO_0(p,q)/\SO (p)\times\SO (q)$ using the Plancherel
formula.
In the Conclusion, we discuss how this analytic continuation can be
a helpful tool to study the growth of the heat kernel.
