Infinite powers and Cohen reals
We give a consistent example of a zerodimensional separable
metrizable space $Z$ such that every homeomorphism of $Z^\omega$
acts like a permutation of the coordinates almost everywhere.
Furthermore, this permutation varies continuously. This shows
that a result of Dow and Pearl is sharp, and gives some insight
into an open problem of Terada. Our example $Z$ is simply the
set of $\omega_1$ Cohen reals, viewed as a subspace of $2^\omega$.

Lipschitz Retractions in Hadamard Spaces Via Gradient Flow Semigroups
Let $X(n),$ for $n\in\mathbb{N},$ be the set of all subsets of a metric
space $(X,d)$ of cardinality at most $n.$ The set $X(n)$ equipped
with the Hausdorff metric is called a finite subset space. In
this paper we are concerned with the existence of Lipschitz retractions
$r\colon X(n)\to X(n1)$ for $n\ge2.$ It is known that such retractions
do not exist if $X$ is the onedimensional sphere. On the other
hand L. Kovalev has recently established their existence in case $X$
is a Hilbert space and he also posed a question as to whether
or not such Lipschitz retractions exist for $X$ being a Hadamard
space. In the present paper we answer this question in the positive.

Recurrence of Cosine Operator Functions on Groups
In this note, we study the recurrence and topologically multiple
recurrence of a sequence of operators on Banach spaces.
In particular, we give a sufficient and necessary condition for
a cosine operator function,
induced by a sequence of operators on the Lebesgue space of a
locally compact group, to be topologically multiply recurrent.

Countable Dense Homogeneity in Powers of Zerodimensional Definable Spaces
We show that, for a coanalytic subspace $X$ of $2^\omega$, the
countable dense homogeneity of $X^\omega$ is equivalent to $X$
being Polish. This strengthens a result of HruÅ¡Ã¡k and Zamora
AvilÃ©s. Then, inspired by results of HernÃ¡ndezGutiÃ©rrez,
HruÅ¡Ã¡k and van Mill, using a technique of Medvedev, we
construct a nonPolish subspace $X$ of $2^\omega$ such that $X^\omega$
is countable dense homogeneous. This gives the first $\mathsf{ZFC}$ answer
to a question of HruÅ¡Ã¡k and Zamora AvilÃ©s. Furthermore,
since our example is consistently analytic, the equivalence result
mentioned above is sharp. Our results also answer a question
of Medini and Milovich. Finally, we show that if every countable
subset of a zerodimensional separable metrizable space $X$ is
included in a Polish subspace of $X$ then $X^\omega$ is countable
dense homogeneous.

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.

Topological Games and Alster Spaces
In this paper we study connections between topological games
such
as Rothberger, Menger and compactopen, and relate these games
to
properties involving covers by $G_\delta$ subsets. The results
include:
(1) If Two has a winning strategy in the Menger
game on a regular space $X$, then $X$ is an Alster space.
(2) If Two has a winning strategy in the Rothberger game on a
topological space $X$, then the $G_\delta$topology on $X$ is
LindelÃ¶f.
(3) The Menger game and the compactopen game are (consistently)
not
dual.

Indicators, Chains, Antichains, Ramsey Property
We introduce two Ramsey classes of finite relational structures. The first
class contains finite structures of the form $(A,(I_{i})_{i=1}^{n},\leq
,(\preceq _{i})_{i=1}^{n})$ where $\leq $ is a total ordering on $A$ and $%
\preceq _{i}$ is a linear ordering on the set $\{a\in A:I_{i}(a)\}$. The
second class contains structures of the form $(A,\leq
,(I_{i})_{i=1}^{n},\preceq )$ where $(A,\leq )$ is a weak ordering and $%
\preceq $ is a linear ordering on $A$ such that $A$ is partitioned by $%
\{a\in A:I_{i}(a)\}$ into maximal chains in the partial ordering $\leq $ and
each $\{a\in A:I_{i}(a)\}$ is an interval with respect to $\preceq $.

AssouadNagata Dimension of Wreath Products of Groups
Consider the wreath product $H\wr G$, where $H\ne 1$ is finite and $G$ is finitely generated.
We show that the AssouadNagata dimension $\dim_{AN}(H\wr G)$ of $H\wr G$
depends on the growth of $G$ as follows:
\par If the growth of $G$ is not bounded by a linear function, then $\dim_{AN}(H\wr G)=\infty$,
otherwise $\dim_{AN}(H\wr G)=\dim_{AN}(G)\leq 1$.

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.

Alexandroff Manifolds and Homogeneous Continua
ny homogeneous,
metric $ANR$continuum is a $V^n_G$continuum provided $\dim_GX=n\geq
1$ and $\check{H}^n(X;G)\neq 0$, where $G$ is a principal ideal
domain.
This implies that any homogeneous $n$dimensional metric $ANR$continuum is a $V^n$continuum in the sense of Alexandroff.
We also prove that any finitedimensional homogeneous metric continuum
$X$, satisfying $\check{H}^n(X;G)\neq 0$ for some group $G$ and $n\geq
1$, cannot be separated by
a compactum $K$ with $\check{H}^{n1}(K;G)=0$ and $\dim_G K\leq
n1$. This provides a partial answer to a question of
KallipolitiPapasoglu
whether any twodimensional homogeneous Peano continuum cannot be separated by arcs.

a metrizable compact topological $n$manifold $X$ with boundary,
and a finite positive Borel measure $\mu$ on $X$,
we prove that for the typical homeomorphism $f : X \to X$,
it is true that for $\mu$almost every point $x$ in $X$ the restriction of
$f$ (respectively of $f^{1}$) to the omega limit set $\omega(f,x)$
(respectively to the alpha limit set $\alpha(f,x)$) is topologically
conjugate to the universal odometer.

Universal Minimal Flows of Groups of Automorphisms of Uncountable Structures
It is a wellknown fact, that the greatest ambit for
a topological group $G$ is the Samuel compactification of $G$ with
respect to the right uniformity on $G.$ We apply the original
description by Samuel from 1948 to give a simple computation of the
universal minimal flow for groups of automorphisms of uncountable
structures using FraÃ¯ssÃ© theory and Ramsey theory. This work
generalizes some of the known results about countable structures.

2homogeneous. This answers Problem 136 of Watson in the Open Problems

Quasisymmetrically Minimal Moran Sets
M. Hu and S. Wen considered quasisymmetrically minimal uniform Cantor
sets of Hausdorff dimension $1$, where at the $k$th set one removes
from each interval $I$ a certain number $n_{k}$ of open subintervals
of length $c_{k}I$, leaving $(n_{k}+1)$ closed subintervals of
equal length. Quasisymmetrically Moran sets of Hausdorff dimension $1$
considered in the paper are more general than uniform Cantor sets in
that neither the open subintervals nor the closed subintervals are
required to be of equal length.

Closed Left Ideal Decompositions of $U(G)$
Let $G$ be an infinite discrete group and let $\beta G$ be the
StoneÄech compactification of $G$. We take the points of $Äta
G$ to be the ultrafilters on $G$, identifying the principal
ultrafilters with the points of $G$. The set $U(G)$ of uniform
ultrafilters on $G$ is a closed twosided ideal of $\beta G$. For
every $p\in U(G)$, define $I_p\subseteq\beta G$ by $I_p=\bigcap_{A\in
p}\operatorname{cl} (GU(A))$, where $U(A)=\{p\in U(G):A\in p\}$. We show
that if $G$ is a regular cardinal, then $\{I_p:p\in U(G)\}$ is the
finest decomposition of $U(G)$ into closed left ideals of $\beta G$
such that the corresponding quotient space of $U(G)$ is Hausdorff.

On Perturbations of Continuous Maps
We give sufficient conditions for the following problem: given a
topological space $X$, a metric space $Y$, a subspace $Z$ of $Y$, and
a continuous map $f$ from $X$ to $Y$, is it possible, by applying to
$f$ an arbitrarily small perturbation, to ensure that $f(X)$ does not
meet $Z$? We also give a relative variant: if $f(X')$ does not meet
$Z$ for a certain subset $X'\subset X$, then we may keep $f$ unchanged
on $X'$. We also develop a variant for continuous sections of
fibrations and discuss some applications to matrix perturbation
theory.

Cliquishness and Quasicontinuity of TwoVariable Maps
We study the existence of continuity points for mappings
$f\colon X\times Y\to Z$ whose $x$sections $Y\ni y\to f(x,y)\in Z$ are
fragmentable and $y$sections $X\ni x\to f(x,y)\in Z$ are
quasicontinuous, where $X$ is a Baire space and $Z$
is a metric space. For the factor $Y$, we consider two
infinite ``pointpicking'' games $G_1(y)$ and $G_2(y)$ defined respectively
for each $y\in Y$ as follows: in the $n$th
inning, Player I gives a dense set $D_n\subset Y$, respectively, a dense open set $D_n\subset Y$. Then
Player II picks a point $y_n\in D_n$;
II wins if $y$ is in the closure of ${\{y_n:n\in\mathbb N\}}$, otherwise
I wins. It is shown that
(i) $f$ is
cliquish
if II has a winning strategy in $G_1(y)$ for every $y\in Y$, and (ii) $
f$ is quasicontinuous if
the $x$sections of $f$ are continuous and the set of $y\in Y$
such that II has a winning strategy in $G_2(y)$ is dense in $Y$. Item (i) extends substantially
a result of Debs and item (ii) indicates that
the problem of Talagrand on separately continuous maps has a positive answer for a wide
class of ``small'' compact spaces.

The Group $\operatorname{Aut}(\mu)$ is Roelcke Precompact
Following a similar result of Uspenskij on the unitary group of a
separable Hilbert space, we show that, with respect to the lower (or
Roelcke) uniform structure, the Polish group $G=
\operatorname{Aut}(\mu)$ of automorphisms of an atomless standard
Borel probability space $(X,\mu)$ is precompact. We identify the
corresponding compactification as the space of Markov operators on
$L_2(\mu)$ and deduce that the algebra of right and left uniformly
continuous functions, the algebra of weakly almost periodic functions,
and the algebra of Hilbert functions on $G$, i.e., functions on
$G$ arising from unitary representations, all coincide. Again
following Uspenskij, we also conclude that $G$ is totally minimal.
