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 $z_0=(e^{i\theta},
0, \dots, 0)'$ and $\theta\in \mathbb{R}$.

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
either the unit disk in the complex plane
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.

New Characterizations of the Weighted Composition Operators Between Bloch Type Spaces in the Polydisk
We give some new characterizations for compactness of weighted
composition operators $uC_\varphi$ acting on Blochtype spaces in
terms of the power of the components of $\varphi,$ where $\varphi$
is a holomorphic selfmap of the polydisk $\mathbb{D}^n,$ thus
generalizing the results obtained by HyvÃ¤rinen and
LindstrÃ¶m in 2012.

Univalently Induced, Closed Range, Composition Operators on the Blochtype Spaces
While there is a large variety of univalently induced closed range
composition operators on the Bloch space,
we show that the only univalently induced, closed range, composition
operators on the Blochtype spaces $B^{\alpha}$ with $\alpha \ne 1$
are the ones induced by a disc automorphism.

A Characterization of Bergman Spaces on the Unit Ball of ${\mathbb C}^n$. II
It has been shown that a holomorphic function $f$ in the unit ball
$\mathbb{B}_n$ of ${\mathbb C}_n$ belongs to the weighted Bergman space $A^p_\alpha$,
$p>n+1+\alpha$, if and only if the function
$f(z)f(w)/1\langle z,w\rangle$ is in $L^p(\mathbb{B}_n\times\mathbb{B}_n,dv_\beta
\times dv_\beta)$, where $\beta=(p+\alphan1)/2$ and $dv_\beta(z)=
(1z^2)^\beta\,dv(z)$. In this paper
we consider the range $0 n+1+\alpha$ is
particularly interesting.

Universal Power Series in $\mathbb{C}^N$
We establish the existence of power series in $\mathbb{C}^N$ with the property
that the subsequences of the sequence of partial sums uniformly
approach any holomorphic function on any well chosen compact subset
outside the set of convergence of the series. We also show that, in a
certain sense, most series enjoy this property.

Characteristic Varieties for a Class of Line Arrangements
Let $\mathcal{A}$ be a line arrangement in the complex projective plane
$\mathbb{P}^2$, having the points of multiplicity $\geq 3$ situated on two
lines in $\mathcal{A}$, say $H_0$ and $H_{\infty}$. Then we show that the
nonlocal irreducible components of the first resonance variety
$\mathcal{R}_1(\mathcal{A})$ are 2dimensional and correspond to parallelograms $\mathcal{P}$ in
$\mathbb{C}^2=\mathbb{P}^2 \setminus H_{\infty}$ whose sides are in $\mathcal{A}$ and for
which $H_0$ is a diagonal.

Remark on Zero Sets of Holomorphic Functions in Convex Domains of Finite Type
We prove that if the $(1,1)$current of integration on an analytic subvariety $V\subset D$ satisfies the uniform Blaschke condition, then $V$ is the zero set of a holomorphic function $f$ such that $\log f$ is a function of bounded mean oscillation in $bD$. The domain $D$ is assumed to be smoothly bounded and of finite d'Angelo type. The proof amounts to nonisotropic estimates for a solution to the $\overline{\partial}$equation for Carleson measures.

Approximation and Interpolation by Entire Functions of Several Variables
Let $f\colon \mathbb R^n\to \mathbb R$ be $C^\infty$ and let $h\colon
\mathbb R^n\to\mathbb R$ be positive
and continuous. For any unbounded nondecreasing sequence $\{c_k\}$
of nonnegative real numbers and for any sequence without
accumulation points $\{x_m\}$ in $\mathbb R^n$, there exists an entire
function $g\colon\mathbb C^n\to\mathbb C$ taking real values on $\mathbb R^n$ such that
\begin{align*}
&g^{(\alpha)}(x)f^{(\alpha)}(x)\lt h(x), \quad x\ge c_k, \alpha\le k,
k=0,1,2,\dots,
\\
&g^{(\alpha)}(x_m)=f^{(\alpha)}(x_m), \quad x_m\ge c_k, \alpha\le k,
m,k=0,1,2,\dots.

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 $D$.
