Asymptotics of Perimeter-Minimizing Partitions
We prove that the least perimeter $P(n)$ of a partition of a smooth, compact Riemannian surface into $n$ regions of equal area $A$ is asymptotic to $n/2$ times the perimeter of a planar regular hexagon of area $A$. Along the way, we derive tighter estimates for flat tori, Klein bottles, truncated cylinders, and Möbius bands.

Einstein-Like Lorentz Metrics and Three-Dimensional Curvature Homogeneity of Order One
We completely classify three-dimensional Lorentz manifolds, curvature homogeneous up to order one, equipped with Einstein-like metrics. New examples arise with respect to both homogeneous examples and three-dimensional Lorentz manifolds admitting a degenerate parallel null line field.

Semi-Slant Submanifolds of an Almost Paracontact Metric Manifold
In this paper, we define and study the geometry of semi-slant submanifolds of an almost paracontact metric manifold. We give some characterizations for a submanifold to be semi-slant submanifold to be semi-slant product and obtain integrability conditions for the distributions involved in the definition of a semi-slant submanifold.

Harmonicity of Holomorphic Maps Between Almost Hermitian Manifolds
In this paper we study holomorphic maps between almost Hermitian manifolds. We obtain a new criterion for the harmonicity of such holomorphic maps, and we deduce some applications to horizontally conformal holomorphic submersions.

On Projectively Flat $(\alpha,\beta)$-metrics
The solutions to Hilbert's Fourth Problem in the regular case are projectively flat Finsler metrics. In this paper, we consider the so-called $(\alpha,\beta)$-metrics defined by a Riemannian metric $\alpha$ and a $1$-form $\beta$, and find a necessary and sufficient condition for such metrics to be projectively flat in dimension $n \geq 3$.

Holomorphic 2-Forms and Vanishing Theorems for Gromov--Witten Invariants
On a compact K\"{a}hler manifold $X$ with a holomorphic 2-form $\a$, there is an almost complex structure associated with $\a$. We show how this implies vanishing theorems for the Gromov--Witten invariants of $X$. This extends the approach used by Parker and the author for K\"{a}hler surfaces to higher dimensions.

Coupled Vortex Equations on Complete Kähler Manifolds
In this paper, we first investigate the Dirichlet problem for coupled vortex equations. Secondly, we give existence results for solutions of the coupled vortex equations on a class of complete noncompact K\"ahler manifolds which include simply-connected strictly negative curved manifolds, Hermitian symmetric spaces of noncompact type and strictly pseudo-convex domains equipped with the Bergmann metric.

Real Hypersurfaces in Complex Space Forms with Reeb Flow Symmetric Structure Jacobi Operator
Real hypersurfaces in a complex space form whose structure Jacobi operator is symmetric along the Reeb flow are studied. Among them, homogeneous real hypersurfaces of type $(A)$ in a complex projective or hyperbolic space are characterized as those whose structure Jacobi operator commutes with the shape operator.

On Willmore's Inequality for Submanifolds
Let $M$ be an $m$ dimensional submanifold in the Euclidean space ${\mathbf R}^n$ and $H$ be the mean curvature of $M$. We obtain some low geometric estimates of the total square mean curvature $\int_M H^2 d\sigma$. The low bounds are geometric invariants involving the volume of $M$, the total scalar curvature of $M$, the Euler characteristic and the circumscribed ball of $M$.

Equivariant Cohomology of $S^{1}$-Actions on $4$-Manifolds
Let $M$ be a symplectic $4$-dimensional manifold equipped with a Hamiltonian circle action with isolated fixed points. We describe a method for computing its integral equivariant cohomology in terms of fixed point data. We give some examples of these computations.

On Lagrangian Catenoids
Recently I. Castro and F. Urbano introduced the Lagrangian catenoid. Topologically, it is $\mathbb R\times S^{n-1}$ and its induced metric is conformally flat, but not cylindrical. Their result is that if a Lagrangian minimal submanifold in ${\mathbb C}^n$ is foliated by round $(n-1)$-spheres, it is congruent to a Lagrangian catenoid. Here we study the question of conformally flat, minimal, Lagrangian submanifolds in ${\mathbb C}^n$. The general problem is formidable, but we first show that such a submanifold resembles a Lagrangian catenoid in that its Schouten tensor has an eigenvalue of multiplicity one. Then, restricting to the case of at most two eigenvalues, we show that the submanifold is either flat and totally geodesic or is homothetic to (a piece of) the Lagrangian catenoid.

Hermitian Harmonic Maps into Convex Balls
In this paper, we consider Hermitian harmonic maps from Hermitian manifolds into convex balls. We prove that there exist no non-trivial Hermitian harmonic maps from closed Hermitian manifolds into convex balls, and we use the heat flow method to solve the Dirichlet problem for Hermitian harmonic maps when the domain is a compact Hermitian manifold with non-empty boundary.

Polygons with Prescribed Gauss Map in Hadamard Spaces and Euclidean Buildings
We show that given a stable weighted configuration on the asymptotic boundary of a locally compact Hadamard space, there is a polygon with Gauss map prescribed by the given weighted configuration. Moreover, the same result holds for semistable configurations on arbitrary Euclidean buildings.

The Spectrum and Isometric Embeddings of Surfaces of Revolution
A sharp upper bound on the first $S^{1}$ invariant eigenvalue of the Laplacian for $S^1$ invariant metrics on $S^2$ is used to find obstructions to the existence of $S^1$ equivariant isometric embeddings of such metrics in $(\R^3,\can)$. As a corollary we prove: If the first four distinct eigenvalues have even multiplicities then the metric cannot be equivariantly, isometrically embedded in $(\R^3,\can)$. This leads to generalizations of some classical results in the theory of surfaces.

Holomorphic Frames for Weakly Converging Holomorphic Vector Bundles
Using a modification of Webster's proof of the Newlander--Nirenberg theorem, it is shown that, for a weakly convergent sequence of integrable unitary connections on a complex vector bundle over a complex manifold, there is a subsequence of local holomorphic frames that converges strongly in an appropriate Holder class.

Real Hypersurfaces in Complex Two-Plane Grassmannians with Vanishing Lie Derivative
In this paper we give a characterization of real hypersurfaces of type $A$ in a complex two-plane Grassmannian $G_2(\mathbb{C}^{m+2})$ which are tubes over totally geodesic $G_2(\mathbb{C}^{m+1})$ in $G_2(\mathbb{C}^{m+2})$ in terms of the {\it vanishing Lie derivative\/} of the shape operator $A$ along the direction of the Reeb vector field $\xi$.

A Note on Lagrangian Loci of Quotients
We study Hamiltonian actions of compact groups in the presence of compatible involutions. We show that the Lagrangian fixed point set on the symplectically reduced space is isomorphic to the disjoint union of the involutively reduced spaces corresponding to involutions on the group strongly inner to the given one. Our techniques imply that the solution to the eigenvalues of a sum problem for a given real form can be reduced to the quasi-split real form in the same inner class. We also consider invariant quotients with respect to the corresponding real form of the complexified group.

Keywords:Quotients, involutions, real forms, Lagrangian loci

On Negatively Curved Finsler Manifolds of Scalar Curvature
In this paper, we prove a global rigidity theorem for negatively curved Finsler metrics on a compact manifold of dimension $n \geq 3$. We show that for such a Finsler manifold, if the flag curvature is a scalar function on the tangent bundle, then the Finsler metric is of Randers type. We also study the case when the Finsler metric is locally projectively flat
