Characters on $C(X)$
The precise condition on a completely regular space $X$ for every character on
$C(X) $ to be an evaluation at some point in $X$ is that $X$ be
realcompact. Usually, this classical result is obtained relying heavily on
involved (and even nonconstructive) extension arguments. This note provides a
direct proof that is accessible to a large audience.

Strong Asymptotic Freeness for Free Orthogonal Quantum Groups
It is known that the normalized standard generators of the free
orthogonal quantum group $O_N^+$ converge in distribution to a free
semicircular system as $N \to \infty$. In this note, we
substantially improve this convergence result by proving that, in
addition to distributional convergence, the operator norm of any
noncommutative polynomial in the normalized standard generators of
$O_N^+$ converges as $N \to \infty$ to the operator norm of the
corresponding noncommutative polynomial in a standard free
semicircular system. Analogous strong convergence results are obtained
for the generators of free unitary quantum groups. As applications of
these results, we obtain a matrixcoefficient version of our strong
convergence theorem, and we recover a well known $L^2$$L^\infty$ norm
equivalence for noncommutative polynomials in free semicircular
systems.

Approximate Fixed Point Sequences of Nonlinear Semigroup in Metric Spaces
In this paper, we investigate the common
approximate fixed point sequences of nonexpansive semigroups of
nonlinear mappings $\{T_t\}_{t \geq 0}$, i.e., a family such that
$T_0(x)=x$, $T_{s+t}=T_s(T_t(x))$, where the domain is a metric space
$(M,d)$. In particular we prove that under suitable conditions, the
common approximate fixed point sequences set is the same as the common
approximate fixed point sequences set of two mappings from the family.
Then we use the Ishikawa iteration to construct a common approximate
fixed point sequence of nonexpansive semigroups of nonlinear
mappings.

Free Locally Convex Spaces and the $k$space Property
Let $L(X)$ be the free locally convex space over a Tychonoff space $X$. Then $L(X)$ is a $k$space if and only if $X$ is a countable discrete space. We prove also that $L(D)$ has uncountable tightness for every uncountable discrete space $D$.

On an Exponential Functional Inequality and its Distributional Version
Let $G$ be a group and $\mathbb K=\mathbb C$ or $\mathbb
R$.
In this article, as a generalization of the result of Albert
and Baker,
we investigate the behavior of bounded
and unbounded functions $f\colon G\to \mathbb K$ satisfying the inequality
$
\Biglf
\Bigl(\sum_{k=1}^n x_k
\Bigr)\prod_{k=1}^n f(x_k)
\Bigr\le \phi(x_2, \dots, x_n),\quad \forall\, x_1, \dots,
x_n\in G,
$
where $\phi\colon G^{n1}\to [0, \infty)$. Also, as a distributional
version of the above inequality we consider the stability of
the functional equation
\begin{equation*}
u\circ S  \overbrace{u\otimes \cdots \otimes u}^{n\text {times}}=0,
\end{equation*}
where $u$ is a Schwartz distribution or Gelfand hyperfunction,
$\circ$ and $\otimes$ are the pullback and tensor product of
distributions, respectively, and $S(x_1, \dots, x_n)=x_1+ \dots
+x_n$.

Measures of Noncompactness in Regular Spaces
Previous results by the author on the connection
between three of measures
of noncompactness obtained for $L_p$, are extended
to regular spaces of measurable
functions.
An example of advantage
in some cases one of them in comparison with another is given.
Geometric characteristics of regular spaces are determined.
New theorems for $(k,\beta)$boundedness of partially additive

Property T and Amenable Transformation Group $C^*$algebras
It is well known that a discrete group which is both amenable and
has Kazhdan's Property T must be finite. In this note we generalize
the above statement to the case of transformation groups. We show
that if $G$ is a discrete amenable group acting on a compact
Hausdorff space $X$, then the transformation group $C^*$algebra
$C^*(X, G)$ has Property T if and only if both $X$ and $G$ are finite. Our
approach does not rely on the use of tracial states on $C^*(X, G)$.

Uniqueness of Preduals in Spaces of Operators
We show that if $E$ is a separable reflexive space, and $L$ is a weakstar closed linear subspace of
$L(E)$ such that $L\cap K(E)$ is weakstar dense in $L$, then $L$ has a unique isometric predual. The proof relies on basic topological arguments.

Equilateral Sets and a SchÃ¼tte Theorem for the $4$norm
A wellknown theorem of SchÃ¼tte (1963) gives a sharp lower bound for
the ratio of the maximum and minimum distances between $n+2$ points in
$n$dimensional Euclidean space.
In this note we adapt BÃ¡rÃ¡ny's elegant proof (1994) of this theorem to the space $\ell_4^n$.
This gives a new proof that the largest cardinality of an equilateral
set in $\ell_4^n$ is $n+1$, and gives a constructive bound for an
interval $(4\varepsilon_n,4+\varepsilon_n)$ of values of $p$ close to $4$ for which it is known that the largest cardinality of an equilateral set in $\ell_p^n$ is $n+1$.

How Lipschitz Functions Characterize the Underlying Metric Spaces
Let $X, Y$ be metric spaces and $E, F$ be Banach spaces. Suppose that
both $X,Y$ are realcompact, or both $E,F$ are realcompact.
The zero set of a vectorvalued function $f$ is denoted by $z(f)$.
A linear bijection $T$ between local or generalized Lipschitz vectorvalued function spaces
is said to preserve zeroset containments or nonvanishing functions
if
\[z(f)\subseteq z(g)\quad\Longleftrightarrow\quad z(Tf)\subseteq z(Tg),\]
or
\[z(f) = \emptyset\quad \Longleftrightarrow\quad z(Tf)=\emptyset,\]
respectively.
Every zeroset containment preserver, and every nonvanishing function preserver when
$\dim E =\dim F\lt +\infty$, is a weighted composition operator
$(Tf)(y)=J_y(f(\tau(y)))$.
We show that the map $\tau\colon Y\to X$ is a locally (little) Lipschitz homeomorphism.

Compact Operators in Regular LCQ Groups
We show that a regular locally compact quantum group $\mathbb{G}$ is discrete
if and only if $\mathcal{L}^{\infty}(\mathbb{G})$ contains nonzero compact operators on
$\mathcal{L}^{2}(\mathbb{G})$.
As a corollary we classify all discrete quantum groups among
regular locally compact quantum groups $\mathbb{G}$ where
$\mathcal{L}^{1}(\mathbb{G})$ has the RadonNikodym property.

Compact Subsets of the Glimm Space of a $C^*$algebra
If $A$ is a $\sigma$unital $C^*$algebra and $a$ is a strictly positive element of $A$ then for every compact subset $K$ of the complete
regularization $\mathrm{Glimm}(A)$ of $\mathrm{Prim}(A)$ there exists
$\alpha \gt 0$ such that $K\subset \{G\in \mathrm{Glimm}(A) \mid \Vert a + G\Vert \geq
\alpha\}$. This extends
a result of J. Dauns
to all $\sigma$unital $C^*$algebras. However, there are a $C^*$algebra $A$
and a compact subset of $\mathrm{Glimm}(A)$ that is not contained in any set of the form $\{G\in \mathrm{Glimm}(A) \mid \Vert a + G\Vert \geq
\alpha\}$, $a\in A$ and $\alpha \gt 0$.

the tail behaviour of the Euclidean norm $X$ of an isotropic
logconcave random vector $X\in\mathbb{R}^n,$
stating that for every $t\geq 1$,
\[\mathbb{P} \big( X\geq ct\sqrt n\big)\leq \exp(t\sqrt n).\]
More precisely we show that for any logconcave random vector $X$
and any $p\geq 1$,
\[(\mathbb{E}X^p)^{1/p}\sim \mathbb{E} X+\sup_{z\in
S^{n1}}(\mathbb{E} \langle

Real Dimension Groups
Dimension groups (not countable) that are also real ordered vector
spaces can be obtained as direct limits (over directed sets) of
simplicial real vector spaces (finite dimensional vector spaces with
the coordinatewise ordering), but the directed set is not as
interesting as one would like, i.e., it is not true that a
countabledimensional real vector space that has interpolation can be
represented as such a direct limit over the a countable directed
set. It turns out this is the case when the group is additionally
simple, and it is shown that the latter have an ordered tensor product
decomposition. In the Appendix, we provide a huge class of polynomial
rings that, with a pointwise ordering, are shown to satisfy
interpolation, extending a result outlined by Fuchs.

Weak Sequential Completeness of $\mathcal K(X,Y)$
For Banach spaces $X$ and $Y$, we show that if $X^\ast$ and $Y$ are
weakly sequentially complete and every weakly compact operator from
$X$ to $Y$ is compact then the space of all compact operators from $X$
to $Y$ is weakly sequentially complete. The converse is also true if,
in addition, either $X^\ast$ or $Y$ has the bounded compact
approximation property.

A Cohomological Property of $\pi$invariant Elements
Let $A$ be a Banach algebra and $\pi \colon A \longrightarrow \mathscr L(H)$
be a continuous representation of $A$ on a separable Hilbert space $H$
with $\dim H =\frak m$. Let $\pi_{ij}$ be the coordinate functions of
$\pi$ with respect to an orthonormal basis and suppose that for each
$1\le j \le \frak m$, $C_j=\sum_{i=1}^{\frak m}
\\pi_{ij}\_{A^*}\lt \infty$ and $\sup_j C_j\lt \infty$. Under these
conditions, we call an element $\overline\Phi \in l^\infty (\frak m , A^{**})$
left $\pi$invariant if $a\cdot \overline\Phi ={}^t\pi (a) \overline\Phi$ for all
$a\in A$. In this paper we prove a link between the existence
of left $\pi$invariant elements and the vanishing of certain
Hochschild cohomology groups of $A$. Our results extend an earlier
result by Lau on $F$algebras and recent results of KaniuthLauPym
and the second named author in the special case that $\pi \colon A
\longrightarrow \mathbf C$ is a nonzero character on $A$.

considered by Sheu.
