On Closed Ideals in a Certain Class of Algebras of Holomorphic Functions
We recently introduced a weighted Banach algebra $\mathfrak{A}_G^n$ of
functions which are holomorphic on the unit disc $\mathbb{D}$, continuous
up to the boundary and of the class $C^{(n)}$ at all points where
the function $G$ does not vanish. Here, $G$ refers to a function
of the disc algebra without zeros on $\mathbb{D}$. Then we proved that
all closed ideals in $\mathfrak{A}_G^n$ with at most countable hull are
standard. In the present paper, on the assumption that $G$ is
an outer function in $C^{(n)}(\overline{\mathbb{D}})$ having infinite roots
in $\mathfrak{A}_G^n$ and countable zero set $h(G)$, we show that all the
closed ideals $I$ with hull containing $h(G)$ are standard.

The Schwarz Lemma at the Boundary of the Egg Domain $B_{p_1, p_2}$ in $\mathbb{C}^n$
Let $B_{p_1, p_2}=\{z\in\mathbb{C}^n:
z_1^{p_1}+z_2^{p_2}+\cdots+z_n^{p_2}\lt 1\}$
be an egg domain in $\mathbb{C}^n$. In this paper, we first
characterize the Kobayashi metric on $B_{p_1, p_2}\,(p_1\geq
1, p_2\geq 1)$,
and then establish a new type of the classical boundary Schwarz
lemma at $z_0\in\partial{B_{p_1, p_2}}$ for holomorphic selfmappings
of $B_{p_1, p_2}(p_1\geq 1, p_2\gt 1)$, where $z_0=(e^{i\theta},
0, \dots, 0)'$ and $\theta\in \mathbb{R}$.

A Short Note on Short Pants
It is a theorem of Bers that any closed hyperbolic surface admits a pants decomposition consisting of curves of bounded length where the bound only depends on the topology of the surface. The question of the quantification of the optimal constants has been well studied and the best upper bounds to date are linear in genus, a theorem of Buser and SeppÃ¤lÃ¤. The goal of this note is to give a short proof of a linear upper bound which slightly improve the best known bound.

Semicrossed Products of the Disk Algebra and the Jacobson Radical
We consider semicrossed products of the disk algebra with respect to
endomorphisms defined by finite Blaschke products. We characterize the Jacobson radical
of these operator algebras. Furthermore, in the case the finite Blaschke product is elliptic,
we show that the semicrossed product contains no nonzero quasinilpotent
elements. However, if the finite Blaschke product is hyperbolic or parabolic with positive hyperbolic step,
the Jacobson radical is nonzero and a proper subset of the set of quasinilpotent elements.

Inclusion Relations for New Function Spaces on Riemann Surfaces
We introduce and study some new function spaces on Riemann
surfaces. For certain parameter values these spaces coincide with
the classical Dirichlet space, BMOA or the recently
defined $Q_p$ space. We establish inclusion relations that
generalize earlier known inclusions between the abovementioned
spaces.

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.

On the Smallest and Largest Zeros of MÃ¼ntzLegendre Polynomials
MÃ¼ntzLegendre
polynomials $L_n(\Lambda;x)$ associated with a
sequence $\Lambda=\{\lambda_k\}$ are obtained by orthogonalizing the
system $(x^{\lambda_0}, x^{\lambda_1}, x^{\lambda_2}, \dots)$ in
$L_2[0,1]$ with respect to the Legendre weight. If the $\lambda_k$'s
are distinct, it is well known that $L_n(\Lambda;x)$ has exactly $n$
zeros $l_{n,n}\lt l_{n1,n}\lt \cdots \lt l_{2,n}\lt l_{1,n}$ on $(0,1)$.
First we prove the following global bound for the smallest zero,
$$
\exp\biggl(4\sum_{j=0}^n \frac{1}{2\lambda_j+1}\biggr) \lt l_{n,n}.
$$
An important consequence is that if the associated MÃ¼ntz space is
nondense in $L_2[0,1]$, then
$$
\inf_{n}x_{n,n}\geq
\exp\biggl({4\sum_{j=0}^{\infty} \frac{1}{2\lambda_j+1}}\biggr)\gt 0,
$$
so
the elements $L_n(\Lambda;x)$ have no zeros close to 0.
Furthermore, we determine the asymptotic behavior of the largest zeros; for $k$ fixed,
$$
\lim_{n\rightarrow\infty} \vert \log l_{k,n}\vert \sum_{j=0}^n
(2\lambda_j+1)= \Bigl(\frac{j_k}{2}\Bigr)^2,
$$
where $j_k$ denotes the $k$th zero of the Bessel function $J_0$.

Domains of Injective Holomorphy
A domain $\Omega$ is called a domain of injective holomorphy if
there exists an injective holomorphic function
$f\colon \Omega\rightarrow\mathbb{C}$ that is nonextendable. We give examples of
domains that are domains of injective holomorphy and others that
are not. In particular, every regular domain
$(\overline\Omega^o=\Omega)$ is a domain of injective holomorphy, and
every simply connected domain is a domain of injective holomorphy
as well.

Boundedness From Below of Multiplication Operators Between $\alpha$Bloch Spaces
In this paper, the boundedness from below of multiplication
operators between $\alpha$Bloch spaces $\mathcal B^\alpha$, $\alpha\gt 0$, on the
unit disk $D$ is studied completely. For a bounded multiplication
operator $M_u\colon \mathcal B^\alpha\to\mathcal B^\beta$, defined by $M_uf=uf$ for
$f\in\mathcal B^\alpha$, we prove the following result:
(i) If $0\lt \beta\lt \alpha$, or
$0\lt \alpha\le1$ and $\alpha\lt \beta$, $M_u$ is not bounded below;
(ii) if $0\lt \alpha=\beta\le1$, $M_u$ is bounded below if and only if
$\liminf_{z\to\partial D}u(z)\gt 0$;
(iii) if $1\lt \alpha\le\beta$, $M_u$ is
bounded below if and only if there exist a $\delta\gt 0$ and a positive
$r\lt 1$ such that for every point $z\in D$ there is a point $z'\in
D$ with the property $d(z',z)\lt r$ and
$(1z'^2)^{\beta\alpha}u(z')\ge\delta$, where $d(\cdot,\cdot)$ denotes
the pseudodistance on $D$.

Some Infinite Products of Ramanujan Type
In his ``lost'' notebook, Ramanujan stated two results, which are equivalent to the identities
\[
\prod_{n=1}^{\infty} \frac{(1q^n)^5}{(1q^{5n})}
=15\sum_{n=1}^{\infty}\Big( \sum_{d \mid n} \qu{5}{d} d \Big) q^n
\]
and
\[
q\prod_{n=1}^{\infty} \frac{(1q^{5n})^5}{(1q^{n})}
=\sum_{n=1}^{\infty}\Big( \sum_{d \mid n} \qu{5}{n/d} d \Big) q^n.
\]
We give several more identities of this type.

also give the multipliers from $l^p(1\le p\le 2), C_0, \BMOA$, and
$H^p(2\le p<\infty)$ into $A^q(1\le q\le 2)$.

Expected Norms of ZeroOne Polynomials
Let $\cA_n = \big\{ a_0 + a_1 z + \cdots + a_{n1}z^{n1} : a_j \in \{0, 1 \
} \big\}$, whose elements are called \emf{zeroone polynomials}
and correspond naturally to the $2^n$ subsets of $[n] := \{ 0, 1,
\ldots, n1 \}$. We also let $\cA_{n,m} = \{ \alf(z) \in \cA_n :
\alf(1) = m \}$, whose elements correspond to the ${n \choose m}$
subsets of~$[n]$ of size~$m$, and let $\cB_n = \cA_{n+1} \setminus
\cA_n$, whose elements are the zeroone polynomials of degree
exactly~$n$.
Many researchers have studied norms of polynomials with restricted
coefficients. Using $\norm{\alf}_p$ to denote the usual $L_p$ norm
of~$\alf$ on the unit circle, one easily sees that $\alf(z) = a_0 +
a_1 z + \cdots + a_N z^N \in \bR[z]$ satisfies $\norm{\alf}_2^2 = c_0$
and $\norm{\alf}_4^4 = c_0^2 + 2(c_1^2 + \cdots + c_N^2)$, where $c_k
:= \sum_{j=0}^{Nk} a_j a_{j+k}$ for $0 \le k \le N$.
If $\alf(z) \in \cA_{n,m}$, say $\alf(z) = z^{\beta_1} + \cdots +
z^{\beta_m}$ where $\beta_1 < \cdots < \beta_m$, then $c_k$ is the
number of times $k$ appears as a difference $\beta_i  \beta_j$. The
condition that $\alf \in \cA_{n,m}$ satisfies $c_k \in \{0,1\}$ for $1
\le k \le n1$ is thus equivalent to the condition that $\{ \beta_1,
\ldots, \beta_m \}$ is a \emf{Sidon set} (meaning all differences of
pairs of elements are distinct).
In this paper, we find the average of~$\\alf\_4^4$ over $\alf \in
\cA_n$, $\alf \in \cB_n$, and $\alf \in \cA_{n,m}$. We further show
that our expression for the average of~$\\alf\_4^4$ over~$\cA_{n,m}$
yields a new proof of the known result: if $m = o(n^{1/4})$ and
$B(n,m)$ denotes the number of Sidon sets of size~$m$ in~$[n]$, then
almost all subsets of~$[n]$ of size~$m$ are Sidon, in the sense that
$\lim_{n \to \infty} B(n,m)/\binom{n}{m} = 1$.

$p$Radial Exceptional Sets and Conformal Mappings
For $p>0$ and for a given set $E$ of type $G_{\delta}$ in the boundary
of the unit disc $\partial\mathbb D$ we construct a holomorphic function
$f\in\mathbb O(\mathbb D)$ such that
\[
\int_{\mathbb D\setminus[0,1]E}ft^{p}\,d\mathfrak{L}^{2}<\infty\]
and\[
E=E^{p}(f)=\Bigl\{ z\in\partial\mathbb D:\int_{0}^{1}f(tz)^{p}\,dt=\infty\Bigr\} .\]
In particular if a set $E$ has a measure equal to zero, then a function
$f$ is constructed as integrable with power $p$ on the unit disc $\mathbb D$.
