Remarks on inner functions and optimal approximants
We discuss the concept of inner function in reproducing kernel Hilbert spaces with an orthogonal basis of monomials and examine connections between inner functions and optimal polynomial approximants to $1/f$, where $f$ is a function in the space. We revisit some classical examples from this perspective, and show how a construction of Shapiro and Shields can be modified to produce inner functions.

Character Amenability of the Intersection of Lipschitz Algebras
Let $(X,d)$ be a metric space and $J\subseteq [0,\infty)$ be
nonempty. We study the structure of the arbitrary intersections
of
Lipschitz algebras, and define a special Banach subalgebra of
$\bigcap_{\gamma\in J}\operatorname{Lip}_\gamma X$, denoted by
$\operatorname{ILip}_J X$. Mainly,
we investigate $C$character amenability of $\operatorname{ILip}_J X$, in
particular Lipschitz algebras. We address a gap in the proof
of a
recent result in this field. Then we remove this gap, and obtain
a
necessary and sufficient condition for $C$character amenability
of $\operatorname{ILip}_J X$, specially Lipschitz algebras, under an additional
assumption.

Invariant Means on a Class of von Neumann Algebras Related to Ultraspherical Hypergroups II
Let $K$ be an ultraspherical hypergroup associated to a locally
compact group $G$ and a spherical projector $\pi$ and let $VN(K)$
denote the dual of the Fourier algebra $A(K)$ corresponding to
$K.$ In this note, we show that the set of invariant means on
$VN(K)$ is singleton if and only if $K$ is discrete. Here $K$
need not be second countable. We also study invariant means on
the dual of the Fourier algebra $A_0(K),$ the closure of $A(K)$
in the $cb$multiplier norm. Finally, we consider generalized
translations and generalized invariant means.

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.

A characterization of $C^{\ast}$normed algebras via positive functionals
We give a characterization of $C^{\ast}$normed algebras, among

of enough specific positive functionals. The same question is
also
examined in some non normed (topological) algebras.

Character Density in Central Subalgebras of Compact Quantum Groups
We investigate quantum group generalizations
of various density results from Fourier analysis on compact groups.
In particular, we establish the density of characters in the
space of fixed points of the conjugation action on $L^2(\mathbb{G})$, and
use this result to show the weak* density and norm density of
characters in $ZL^\infty(\mathbb{G})$ and $ZC(\mathbb{G})$, respectively. As a corollary,
we partially answer an open question of Woronowicz.
At the level of $L^1(\mathbb{G})$, we show that the center
$\mathcal{Z}(L^1(\mathbb{G}))$
is precisely the closed linear span of the quantum characters
for a large class of compact quantum groups, including arbitrary
compact Kac algebras. In the latter setting, we show, in addition,
that $\mathcal{Z}(L^1(\mathbb{G}))$ is a completely complemented
$\mathcal{Z}(L^1(\mathbb{G}))$submodule
of $L^1(\mathbb{G})$.

Reduction to Dimension Two of Local Spectrum for $AH$ Algebra with Ideal Property
A $C^{*}$algebra $A$ has the ideal property if any ideal
$I$ of $A$ is generated as a closed two sided ideal by the projections
inside the ideal. Suppose that the limit $C^{*}$algebra $A$
of inductive limit of direct sums of matrix algebras over spaces
with uniformly bounded dimension has ideal property. In this
paper we will prove that $A$ can be written as an inductive limit
of certain very special subhomogeneous algebras, namely, direct
sum of dimension drop interval algebras and matrix algebras over
2dimensional spaces with torsion $H^{2}$ groups.

$\mathcal{Q}_p$ Spaces and Dirichlet Type Spaces
In this paper, we show that the MÃ¶bius invariant
function space $\mathcal {Q}_p$ can be generated by variant
Dirichlet type spaces
$\mathcal{D}_{\mu, p}$ induced by finite positive Borel measures
$\mu$ on the open unit disk. A criterion for the equality between
the space $\mathcal{D}_{\mu, p}$ and the usual Dirichlet type
space $\mathcal {D}_p$ is given. We obtain a sufficient condition
to construct different $\mathcal{D}_{\mu, p}$ spaces
and we provide examples.
We establish decomposition theorems for $\mathcal{D}_{\mu,
p}$ spaces, and prove that the nonHilbert space $\mathcal
{Q}_p$ is equal to the intersection of Hilbert spaces $\mathcal{D}_{\mu,
p}$. As an application of the relation between $\mathcal {Q}_p$
and $\mathcal{D}_{\mu, p}$ spaces, we also obtain that there
exist different $\mathcal{D}_{\mu, p}$ spaces; this is a trick
to prove the existence without constructing examples.

Characterizations of Operator BirkhoffJames Orthogonality
In this paper, we obtain some characterizations of the (strong)
BirkhoffJames orthogonality for elements of Hilbert $C^*$modules
and certain elements of $\mathbb{B}(\mathscr{H})$.
Moreover, we obtain a kind of Pythagorean relation for bounded
linear operators.
In addition, for $T\in \mathbb{B}(\mathscr{H})$ we prove that if the
norm attaining
set $\mathbb{M}_T$ is a unit sphere of some finite dimensional
subspace $\mathscr{H}_0$ of $\mathscr{H}$ and $\T\_{{{\mathscr{H}}_0}^\perp}
\lt \T\$, then for every $S\in\mathbb{B}(\mathscr{H})$, $T$ is the strong
BirkhoffJames orthogonal to $S$ if and only if there exists
a unit vector $\xi\in {\mathscr{H}}_0$ such that $\T\\xi =
T\xi$ and $S^*T\xi = 0$.
Finally, we introduce a new type of approximate orthogonality
and investigate this notion in the setting of inner product $C^*$modules.

Characterizations of BesovType and TriebelLizorkinType Spaces via Averages on Balls
Let $\ell\in\mathbb N$ and $\alpha\in (0,2\ell)$. In this article,
the authors establish
equivalent characterizations
of Besovtype spaces, TriebelLizorkintype
spaces and BesovMorrey spaces via the sequence
$\{fB_{\ell,2^{k}}f\}_{k}$ consisting of the difference between
$f$ and
the ball average $B_{\ell,2^{k}}f$. These results give a way
to introduce Besovtype spaces,
TriebelLizorkintype spaces and BesovMorrey spaces with any
smoothness order
on metric measure spaces. As special cases, the authors obtain
a new characterization of MorreySobolev spaces
and $Q_\alpha$ spaces with $\alpha\in(0,1)$, which are of independent
interest.

Isometry on Linear $n$Gquasi Normed Spaces
This paper generalizes the Aleksandrov problem: the MazurUlam
theorem on $n$Gquasi normed spaces. It proves that a one$n$distance
preserving mapping is an $n$isometry if and only if it has the
zero$n$Gquasi preserving property, and two kinds of $n$isometries
on $n$Gquasi normed space are equivalent; we generalize the
Benz theorem to nnormed spaces with no restrictions on the dimension
of spaces.

A Homological Property and Arens Regularity of Locally Compact Quantum Groups
We characterize two important notions of amenability and compactness
of
a locally compact quantum group ${\mathbb G}$ in terms of certain
homological
properties. For this, we show that ${\mathbb G}$ is character
amenable if and only if it is both amenable and coamenable.
We finally apply our results to
Arens regularity problems of the quantum group algebra
$L^1({\mathbb G})$; in particular, we improve an interesting result
by Hu, Neufang and Ruan.

On Ulam Stability of a Functional Equation in Banach Modules
Let $X$ and $Y$ be Banach spaces and $f : X \to Y$ an odd mapping.
For any rational number $r \ne 2$, C. Baak, D. H.
Boo, and Th. M. Rassias have proved the HyersUlam stability
of the following functional equation:
\begin{align*}
r f
\left(\frac{\sum_{j=1}^d x_j}{r}
\right)
& + \sum_{\substack{i(j) \in \{0,1\}
\\ \sum_{j=1}^d i(j)=\ell}} r f
\left(
\frac{\sum_{j=1}^d (1)^{i(j)}x_j}{r}
\right)
= (C^\ell_{d1}  C^{\ell 1}_{d1} + 1) \sum_{j=1}^d
f(x_j)
\end{align*}
where $d$ and $\ell$ are positive integers so that $1 \lt \ell
\lt \frac{d}{2}$, and $C^p_q := \frac{q!}{(qp)!p!}$,
$p, q \in \mathbb{N}$ with $p \le q$.
In this note we solve this equation for arbitrary nonzero scalar
$r$ and show that it is actually HyersUlam stable.
We thus extend and generalize Baak et al.'s result.
Different questions concerning the *homomorphisms and the
multipliers between C*algebras are also
considered.

Nilpotent Group C*algebras as Compact Quantum Metric Spaces
Let $\mathbb{L}$ be a length function on a group $G$, and let $M_\mathbb{L}$
denote the
operator of pointwise multiplication by $\mathbb{L}$ on $\lt(G)$.
Following Connes,
$M_\mathbb{L}$ can be used as a ``Dirac'' operator for the reduced
group C*algebra $C_r^*(G)$. It defines a
Lipschitz seminorm on $C_r^*(G)$, which defines a metric on the
state space of
$C_r^*(G)$. We show that
for any length function satisfying a strong form of polynomial
growth on a discrete group,
the topology from this metric
coincides with the
weak$*$ topology (a key property for the
definition of a ``compact quantum metric
space''). In particular, this holds for all wordlength functions
on finitely generated nilpotentbyfinite groups.

Eigenvalues of $ \Delta_p \Delta_q $ Under Neumann Boundary Condition
The
eigenvalue problem $\Delta_p u\Delta_q u=\lambdau^{q2}u$
with $p\in(1,\infty)$, $q\in(2,\infty)$, $p\neq q$ subject to
the
corresponding homogeneous Neumann boundary condition is
investigated on a bounded open set with smooth boundary from
$\mathbb{R}^N$ with $N\geq 2$. A careful analysis of this problem leads
us to a complete description of the set of eigenvalues as being
a
precise interval $(\lambda_1, +\infty )$ plus an isolated point
$\lambda =0$. This comprehensive result is strongly related to
our
framework which is complementary to the wellknown case $p=q\neq
2$ for which a full description of the set of eigenvalues is
still
unavailable.
