Total nonnegativity and stable polynomials
We consider homogeneous multiaffine polynomials whose coefficients
are the PlÃ¼cker coordinates of a point $V$ of the Grassmannian.
We show that such a polynomial is stable (with respect to the
upper half plane) if and only if $V$ is in the totally nonnegative
part of the Grassmannian. To prove this, we consider an action
of
matrices on multiaffine polynomials. We show that
a matrix $A$ preserves stability of polynomials if and only if
$A$ is totally nonnegative. The proofs are applications of classical
theory of totally nonnegative matrices, and the generalized
PÃ³lyaSchur theory of Borcea and BrÃ¤ndÃ©n.

On motivic realizations of the canonical Hermitian variations of Hodge structure of CalabiYau type over type $D^{\mathbb H}$ domains
Let $\mathcal{D}$ be the irreducible Hermitian symmetric domain
of type $D_{2n}^{\mathbb{H}}$. There exists a canonical Hermitian
variation of real Hodge structure $\mathcal{V}_{\mathbb{R}}$
of CalabiYau type over $\mathcal{D}$. This short note concerns
the problem of giving motivic realizations for $\mathcal{V}_{\mathbb{R}}$.
Namely, we specify a descent of $\mathcal{V}_{\mathbb{R}}$ from
$\mathbb{R}$ to $\mathbb{Q}$ and ask whether the $\mathbb{Q}$descent
of $\mathcal{V}_{\mathbb{R}}$ can be realized as subvariation
of rational Hodge structure of those coming from families of
algebraic varieties. When $n=2$, we give a motivic realization
for $\mathcal{V}_{\mathbb{R}}$. When $n \geq 3$, we show that
the unique irreducible factor of CalabiYau type in $\mathrm{Sym}^2
\mathcal{V}_{\mathbb{R}}$ can be realized motivically.

Elliptic Zeta functions and equivariant functions
In this paper we establish a close connection between three
notions attached to a modular subgroup. Namely the set of weight
two meromorphic modular forms, the set of equivariant functions
on the upper halfplane commuting with the action of the modular
subgroup and the set of elliptic zeta functions generalizing
the Weierstrass zeta functions. In particular, we show that the
equivariant functions can be parameterized by modular objects
as well as by elliptic objects.

A realanalytic nonpolynomially convex isotropic torus with no attached discs
We show by means of an example in $\mathbb C^3$ that Gromov's
theorem on the presence of attached holomorphic discs for compact
Lagrangian manifolds is not true in the subcritical
realanalytic case, even in the absence of an obvious obstruction,
i.e, polynomial convexity.

On subcritically Stein fillable 5manifolds
We make some elementary observations concerning subcritically
Stein
fillable contact structures on $5$manifolds.
Specifically, we determine the diffeomorphism type of such
contact manifolds in the case the fundamental group is finite
cyclic,
and we show that on the $5$sphere the standard contact structure
is the unique subcritically fillable one. More generally,
it is shown that subcritically fillable contact structures
on simply connected $5$manifolds are determined by their
underlying almost contact structure. Along the way, we discuss
the
homotopy classification of almost contact structures.

Levi's Problem for Pseudoconvex Homogeneous Manifolds
Suppose $G$ is a connected complex Lie group and $H$ is a closed
complex subgroup.
Then there exists a closed complex subgroup $J$ of $G$ containing
$H$ such that
the fibration $\pi:G/H \to G/J$ is the holomorphic reduction
of $G/H$, i.e., $G/J$ is holomorphically
separable and ${\mathcal O}(G/H) \cong \pi^*{\mathcal O}(G/J)$.
In this paper we prove that if $G/H$ is pseudoconvex, i.e.,
if
$G/H$ admits a continuous plurisubharmonic exhaustion function,
then $G/J$ is Stein and $J/H$ has no nonconstant holomorphic
functions.

The Bifurcation Diagram of Cubic Polynomial Vector Fields on $\mathbb{C}\mathbb{P}^1$
In this paper we give the bifurcation diagram
of the family of cubic vector fields $\dot z=z^3+ \epsilon_1z+\epsilon_0$
for $z\in \mathbb{C}\mathbb{P}^1$, depending on the values of
$\epsilon_1,\epsilon_0\in\mathbb{C}$.
The bifurcation diagram is in $\mathbb{R}^4$, but its conic structure
allows describing it for parameter values in $\mathbb{S}^3$. There are
two open simply connected regions of structurally stable vector
fields separated by surfaces corresponding to bifurcations of
homoclinic connections between two separatrices of the pole at
infinity. These branch from the codimension 2 curve of double
singular points. We also explain the bifurcation of homoclinic
connection in terms of the description of Douady and Sentenac
of polynomial vector fields.

A moduletheoretic characterization of algebraic hypersurfaces
In this note we prove the following surprising characterization:
if
$X\subset {\mathbb A}^n$ is an (embedded, nonempty, proper)
algebraic variety defined over a
field $k$ of characteristic zero, then $X$ is a hypersurface
if and only if the module $T_{{\mathcal O}_{{\mathbb
A}^n}/k}(X)$ of logarithmic vector fields of
$X$ is a reflexive ${\mathcal
O}_{{\mathbb A}^n}$module. As a consequence of this result,
we derive that if $T_{{\mathcal O}_{{\mathbb A}^n}/k}(X)$ is a
free ${\mathcal
O}_{{\mathbb A}^n}$module, which is shown to be equivalent
to the freeness of the $t$th exterior power of $T_{{\mathcal O}_{{\mathbb
A}^n}/k}(X)$ for some (in fact, any) $t\leq n$, then necessarily
$X$ is a Saito free divisor.

On Hodge Theory of Singular Plane Curves
The dimensions of the graded quotients of the
cohomology of a plane curve complement $U=\mathbb P^2 \setminus C$
with respect to the Hodge filtration are described in terms of
simple geometrical invariants. The case of curves with ordinary
singularities is discussed in detail. We also give a precise
numerical estimate for the difference between the Hodge filtration
and the pole order filtration on $H^2(U,\mathbb C)$.

We study and generalize a classical theorem of L. Bers that classifies

of

of these results to the study of domains with noncompact automorphism
group.

Generalized Torsion in Knot Groups
In a group, a nonidentity element is called
a generalized torsion element if some product of its conjugates
equals the identity. We show that for many classical knots one
can find generalized torsion in the fundamental group of its
complement, commonly called the knot group. It follows that
such a group is not biorderable. Examples include all torus
knots, the (hyperbolic) knot $5_2$ and algebraic knots in the
sense of Milnor.

On the Relation of Real and Complex Lie Supergroups
A complex Lie supergroup can be described as a real Lie supergroup
with integrable almost complex structure. The necessary and
sufficient conditions on an almost complex structure on a real
Lie supergroup for defining a complex Lie supergroup are deduced.
The classification of real Lie supergroups with such almost
complex
structures yields a new approach to the known classification
of complex Lie supergroups by complex HarishChandra superpairs.
A universal complexification of a real Lie supergroup is
constructed.

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},

Admissibility of Local Systems for some Classes of Line Arrangements
Let $\mathcal{A}$ be a line arrangement in the complex
projective plane $\mathbb{P}^2$ and let $M$ be its complement. A rank one
local system $\mathcal{L}$ on $M$ is admissible if roughly speaking
the cohomology groups
$H^m(M,\mathcal{L})$ can be computed directly from the cohomology
algebra $H^{*}(M,\mathbb{C})$. In this work, we give a sufficient
condition for the admissibility of all rank one local systems on
$M$. As a result, we obtain some properties of the characteristic
variety $\mathcal{V}_1(M)$ and the Resonance variety $\mathcal{R}_1(M)$.

Complexifying Lie Group Actions on Homogeneous Manifolds of Noncompact Dimension Two
If $X$ is a connected complex manifold with $d_X = 2$ that admits a (connected) Lie group $G$
acting transitively as a group of holomorphic transformations, then the action extends to an action of the
complexification $\widehat{G}$ of $G$ on $X$ except when

or a strictly pseudoconcave homogeneous complex manifold is
the base or fiber of some homogeneous fibration of $X$.

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.
