Remarks on Hopf images and quantum permutation groups $S_n^+$
Motivated by a question of A. Skalski and P.M. SoÅtan (2016)
about inner faithfulness of the S. Curran's map of extending
a quantum increasing sequence to a quantum permutation, we revisit
the results and techniques of T. Banica and J. Bichon (2009)
and study some grouptheoretic properties of the quantum permutation
group on $4$ points. This enables us not only to answer the aforementioned
question in positive in case $n=4, k=2$, but also to classify
the automorphisms of $S_4^+$, describe all the embeddings $O_{1}(2)\subset
S_4^+$ and show that all the copies of $O_{1}(2)$ inside $S_4^+$
are conjugate. We then use these results to show that the converse
to the criterion we applied to answer the aforementioned question
is not valid.

Affine Actions of $U_q(sl(2))$ on Polynomial Rings
We classify the affine actions of $U_q(sl(2))$ on commutative
polynomial rings in $m \ge 1$ variables.
We show that, up to scalar multiplication, there are two possible
actions.
In addition, for each action, the subring of invariants is a
polynomial ring in either $m$ or $m1$ variables,
depending upon whether $q$ is or is not a root of $1$.

Strong Asymptotic Freeness for Free Orthogonal Quantum Groups
It is known that the normalized standard generators of the free
orthogonal quantum group $O_N^+$ converge in distribution to a free
semicircular system as $N \to \infty$. In this note, we
substantially improve this convergence result by proving that, in
addition to distributional convergence, the operator norm of any
noncommutative polynomial in the normalized standard generators of
$O_N^+$ converges as $N \to \infty$ to the operator norm of the
corresponding noncommutative polynomial in a standard free
semicircular system. Analogous strong convergence results are obtained
for the generators of free unitary quantum groups. As applications of
these results, we obtain a matrixcoefficient version of our strong
convergence theorem, and we recover a well known $L^2$$L^\infty$ norm
equivalence for noncommutative polynomials in free semicircular
systems.

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.
