A factorization result for classical and similitude groups
For most classical and similitude groups, we show that each element
can be written as a product of two transformations that
a) preserve or almost preserve the underlying form and b) whose
squares are certain scalar maps. This generalizes work of Wonenburger
and Vinroot.
As an application, we reprove and slightly extend a well known
result of MÅglin, VignÃ©ras and Waldspurger on the existence
of automorphisms of $p$adic classical groups that take each
irreducible smooth representation to its dual.

On the Structure of the Schild Group in Relativity Theory
Alfred Schild has established conditions
that Lorentz transformations map worldvectors $(ct,x,y,z)$ with
integer coordinates onto vectors of the same kind. These transformations
are called integral Lorentz transformations.
The present paper contains supplements to
our earlier work
with a new focus on group theory. To relate the results to the
familiar matrix group nomenclature we associate Lorentz transformations
with matrices in $\mathrm{SL}(2,\mathbb{C})$. We consider the
lattice of subgroups of the group originated in Schild's paper
and obtain generating sets for the full group and its subgroups.

A Note on Quaternionic Hyperbolic Ideal Triangle Groups
In this paper, the quaternionic hyperbolic
ideal triangle groups are parameterized by a real oneparameter
family $\{\phi_s: s\in \mathbb{R}\}$. The indexing parameter $s$ is
the tangent of the quaternionic angular invariant of a triple
of points in $\partial \mathbf{H}_{\mathbb{h}}^2 $ forming this ideal
triangle. We show that if $s \gt \sqrt{125/3}$ then $\phi_s$ is
not a discrete embedding, and if $s \leq \sqrt{35}$
then $\phi_s$ is a discrete embedding.

Discrete Spacetime and Lorentz Transformations
Alfred Schild has established conditions
that Lorentz transformations map worldvectors $(ct,x,y,z)$ with
integer coordinates onto vectors of the same kind. The problem
was dealt with in the context of tensor and spinor calculus.
Due to Schild's numbertheoretic arguments, the subject is also
interesting when isolated from its physical background.
The paper of Schild is not easy to understand. Therefore we first
present a streamlined version of his proof which is based on
the use of null vectors. Then we present a purely algebraic proof
that is somewhat shorter. Both proofs rely on the properties
of Gaussian integers.

Quantum Unique Ergodicity on Locally Symmetric Spaces: the Degenerate Lift
Given a measure $\bar\mu_\infty$ on a locally symmetric space $Y=\Gamma\backslash
G/K$,
obtained as a weak{*} limit of probability measures associated
to
eigenfunctions of the ring of invariant differential operators,
we
construct a measure $\bar\mu_\infty$ on the homogeneous space $X=\Gamma\backslash
G$
which lifts $\bar\mu_\infty$ and which is invariant by a connected subgroup
$A_{1}\subset A$ of positive dimension, where $G=NAK$ is an Iwasawa
decomposition. If the functions are, in addition, eigenfunctions
of
the Hecke operators, then $\bar\mu_\infty$ is also the limit of measures
associated
to Hecke eigenfunctions on $X$. This generalizes results of the
author
with A. Venkatesh in the case where the spectral parameters
stay
away from the walls of the Weyl chamber.

On Induced Representations Distinguished by Orthogonal Groups
Let $F$ be a local nonarchimedean field of characteristic zero. We
prove that a representation of $GL(n,F)$ obtained from irreducible
parabolic induction of supercuspidal representations is distinguished
by an orthogonal group only if the inducing data is distinguished by
appropriate orthogonal groups. As a corollary, we get that an
irreducible representation induced from supercuspidals that is
distinguished by an orthogonal group is metic.

Left Invariant EinsteinRanders Metrics on Compact Lie Groups
In this paper we study left invariant EinsteinRanders metrics on compact Lie
groups. First, we give a method to construct left invariant nonRiemannian EinsteinRanders metrics
on a compact Lie group, using the Zermelo navigation data.
Then we prove that this gives a complete classification of left invariant EinsteinRanders metrics on compact simple
Lie groups with the underlying Riemannian metric naturally reductive.
Further, we completely determine the identity component of the group of
isometries for this type of metrics on simple groups. Finally, we study some
geometric properties of such metrics. In particular, we give the formulae of geodesics and flag curvature
of such metrics.

Central Extensions of Loop Groups and Obstruction to PreQuantization
An explicit construction of a prequantum line bundle for the moduli
space of flat $G$bundles over a Riemann surface is given, where $G$
is any nonsimply connected compact simple Lie group. This work helps
to explain a curious coincidence previously observed between
Toledano Laredo's work classifying central extensions of loop groups
$LG$ and the author's previous work on the obstruction to
prequantization of the moduli space of flat $G$bundles.

Admissible Sequences for Twisted Involutions in Weyl Groups
Let $W$ be a Weyl group, $\Sigma$ a set of simple reflections in $W$
related to a basis $\Delta$ for the root system $\Phi$ associated with
$W$ and $\theta$ an involution such that $\theta(\Delta) = \Delta$. We
show that the set of $\theta$twisted involutions in $W$,
$\mathcal{I}_{\theta} = \{w\in W \mid \theta(w) = w^{1}\}$ is in one
to one correspondence with the set of regular involutions
$\mathcal{I}_{\operatorname{Id}}$. The elements of $\mathcal{I}_{\theta}$ are
characterized by sequences in $\Sigma$ which induce an ordering called
the RichardsonSpringer Poset. In particular, for $\Phi$ irreducible,
the ascending RichardsonSpringer Poset of $\mathcal{I}_{\theta}$,
for nontrivial $\theta$ is identical to the descending
RichardsonSpringer Poset of $\mathcal{I}_{\operatorname{Id}}$.

StarShapedness and $K$Orbits in Complex Semisimple Lie Algebras
Given a complex semisimple Lie algebra
$\mathfrak{g}=\mathfrak{k}+i\mathfrak{k}$ ($\mathfrak{k}$ is a compact
real form of $\mathfrak{g}$), let $\pi\colon\mathfrak{g}\to
\mathfrak{h}$ be the orthogonal projection (with respect to the
Killing form) onto the Cartan subalgebra
$\mathfrak{h}:=\mathfrak{t}+i\mathfrak{t}$, where $\mathfrak{t}$ is a
maximal abelian subalgebra of $\mathfrak{k}$. Given $x\in
\mathfrak{g}$, we consider $\pi(\mathop{\textrm{Ad}}(K) x)$, where $K$ is
the analytic subgroup $G$ corresponding to $\mathfrak{k}$, and show
that it is starshaped. The result extends a result of Tsing. We also
consider the generalized numerical range $f(\mathop{\textrm{Ad}}(K)x)$,
where $f$ is a linear functional on $\mathfrak{g}$. We establish the
starshapedness of $f(\mathop{\textrm{Ad}}(K)x)$ for simple Lie algebras
of type $B$.

A KÃ¼nneth Theorem for $p$Adic Groups
Let $G_1$ and $G_2$ be $p$adic groups. We describe a decomposition of
${\rm Ext}$groups in the category of smooth representations of
$G_1 \times G_2$ in terms of ${\rm Ext}$groups for $G_1$ and $G_2$.
We comment on ${\rm Ext}^1_G(\pi,\pi)$ for a supercuspidal
representation
$\pi$ of a $p$adic group $G$. We also consider an example of
identifying
the class, in a suitable ${\rm Ext}^1$, of a Jacquet module of certain
representations of $p$adic ${\rm GL}_{2n}$.

On the Stable Basin Theorem
The stable basin theorem was introduced by Basmajian and Miner as a
key step in their necessary condition for the discreteness of a
nonelementary group of complex hyperbolic isometries. In this
paper we improve several of Basmajian and Miner's key estimates and
so give a substantial improvement on the main inequality in the
stable basin theorem.

Some Questions about Semisimple Lie Groups Originating in Matrix Theory
We generalize the wellknown result that a square traceless complex
matrix is unitarily similar to a matrix with zero diagonal to
arbitrary connected semisimple complex Lie groups $G$ and their Lie
algebras $\mathfrak{g}$ under the action of a maximal compact subgroup
$K$ of $G$. We also introduce a natural partial order on
$\mathfrak{g}$: $x\le y$ if $f(K\cdot x) \subseteq f(K\cdot y)$ for
all $f\in \mathfrak{g}^*$, the complex dual of $\mathfrak{g}$. This
partial order is $K$invariant and induces a partial order on the
orbit space $\mathfrak{g}/K$. We prove that, under some restrictions
on $\mathfrak{g}$, the set $f(K\cdot x)$ is starshaped with respect
to the origin.

A Note on the Automorphic Langlands Group
Langlands has conjectured the existence of a universal group, an
extension of the absolute Galois group, which would play a fundamental
role in the classification of automorphic representations. We shall
describe a possible candidate for this group. We shall also describe
a possible candidate for the complexification of Grothendieck's
motivic Galois group.

Mellin Transforms of Whittaker Functions
In this note we show that for an arbitrary reductive Lie group
and any admissible irreducible Banach representation the Mellin
transforms of Whittaker functions extend to meromorphic functions.
We locate the possible poles and show that they always lie along
translates of walls of Weyl chambers.

Globalization of Distinguished Supercuspidal Representations of $\GL(n)$
An irreducible supercuspidal representation $\pi$ of $G=
\GL(n,F)$, where $F$ is a nonarchimedean local field of
characteristic zero, is said to be ``distinguished'' by a
subgroup $H$ of $G$ and a quasicharacter $\chi$ of $H$ if
$\Hom_H(\pi,\chi)\noteq 0$. There is a suitable global analogue
of this notion for and irreducible, automorphic, cuspidal
representation associated to $\GL(n)$. Under certain general
hypotheses, it is shown in this paper that every distinguished,
irreducible, supercuspidal representation may be realized as a
local component of a distinguished, irreducible automorphic,
cuspidal representation. Applications to the theory of
distinguished supercuspidal representations are provided.

Ergodic Rotations of Nilmanifolds Conjugate to Their Inverses
In answer to a question posed in \cite{G}, we give sufficient
conditions on a Lie nilmanifold so that any ergodic rotation of the
nilmanifold is metrically conjugate to its inverse. The condition is
that the Lie algebra be what we call quasigraded, and is weaker than
the property of being graded. Furthermore, the conjugating map can be
chosen to be an involution. It is shown that for a special class of
groups, the condition of quasigraded is also necessary. In certain
examples there is a continuum of conjugacies.
