On Maximal $k$Sections and Related Common Transversals of Convex Bodies
Generalizing results from [MM1] referring
to the intersection body $IK$ and
the crosssection body $CK$ of a convex body
$K \subset \sR^d, \, d \ge 2$,
we prove theorems about maximal $k$sections of convex bodies,
$k \in \{1, \dots, d1\}$,
and, simultaneously, statements
about common maximal
$(d1)$ and $1$transversals of families
of convex bodies.

$2$Primary Exponent Bounds for Lie Groups of Low Rank
Exponent information is proven about the Lie groups $SU(3)$,
$SU(4)$, $Sp(2)$, and $G_2$ by showing some power of the $H$space
squaring map (on a suitably looped connectedcover) is null homotopic.
The upper bounds obtained are $8$, $32$, $64$, and $2^8$ respectively.
This null homotopy is best possible for $SU(3)$ given the number of
loops, off by at most one power of~$2$ for $SU(4)$ and $Sp(2)$, and
off by at most two powers of $2$ for $G_2$.

LScatÃ©gorie algÃ©brique et attachement de cellules
Nous montrons que la Acat\'egorie d'un espace simplement connexe de
type fini est inf\'erieure ou \'egale \`a $n$ si et seulement si son
mod\`ele d'AdamsHilton est un r\'etracte homotopique d'une alg\`ebre
diff\'erentielle \`a $n$ \'etages. Nous en d\'eduisons que
l'invariant $\Acat$ augmente au plus de 1 lors de l'attachement
d'une cellule \`a un espace.
We show that the Acategory of a simply connected space of finite type
is less than or equal to $n$ if and only if its AdamsHilton model is
a homotopy retract of an $n$stage differential algebra. We deduce
from this that the invariant $\Acat$ increases by at most 1 when a
cell is attached to a space.

Extension of Maps to Nilpotent Spaces
We show that every compactum has cohomological dimension $1$ with respect
to a finitely generated nilpotent group $G$ whenever it has cohomological
dimension $1$ with respect to the abelianization of $G$. This is applied
to the extension theory to obtain a cohomological dimension theory condition
for a finitedimensional compactum $X$ for extendability of every map from
a closed subset of $X$ into a nilpotent $\CW$complex $M$ with finitely
generated homotopy groups over all of $X$.

Hecke Operations and the Adams $E_2$Term Based on Elliptic Cohomology
Hecke operators are used to investigate part of the $\E_2$term of
the Adams spectral sequence based on elliptic homology. The main
result is a derivation of $\Ext^1$ which combines use of classical
Hecke operators and $p$adic Hecke operators due to Serre.

The Classification of $\Pin_4$Bundles over a $4$Complex
In this paper we show that the Liegroup $\Pin_4$ is isomorphic to
the semidirect product $(\SU_2\times \SU_2)\timesv \Z/2$ where
$\Z/2$ operates by flipping the factors. Using this structure
theorem we prove a classification theorem for $\Pin_4$bundles over
a finite $4$complex $X$.

Embedding Coverings in Bundles
If $V\to X$ is a vector bundle of fiber dimension $k$ and $Y\to X$
is a finite sheeted covering map of degree $d$, the implications
for the Euler class $e(V)$ in $H^k(X)$ of $V$ implied by the
existence of an embedding $Y\to V$ lifting the covering map are
explored. In particular it is proved that $dd'e(V)=0$ where $d'$
is a certain divisor of $d1$, and often $d'=1$.

The stable and unstable types of classifying spaces
The main purpose of this paper is to study groups $G_1$, $G_2$ such that
$H^\ast(BG_1,{\bf Z}/p)$ is isomorphic to $H^\ast(BG_2,{\bf Z}/p)$
in ${\cal U}$, the category of unstable modules over the Steenrod algebra
${\cal A}$, but not isomorphic as graded algebras over ${\bf Z}/p$.

Continuous Selfmaps of the Circle
Given a continuous map $\delta$ from the circle $S$ to itself we
want to find all selfmaps $\sigma\colon S\to S$ for which
$\delta\circ\sigma = \delta$. If the degree $r$ of $\delta$ is not
zero, the transformations $\sigma$ form a subgroup of the cyclic
group $C_r$. If $r=0$, all such invertible transformations form a
group isomorphic either to a cyclic group $C_n$ or to a dihedral
group $D_n$ depending on whether all such transformations are
orientation preserving or not. Applied to the tangent image of
planar closed curves, this generalizes a result of Bisztriczky and
Rival [1]. The proof rests on the theorem: {\it Let
$\Delta\colon\bbd R\to\bbd R$ be continuous, nowhere constant, and
$\lim_{x\to \infty}\Delta(x)=\infty$, $ \lim_{x\to+\infty}\Delta
(x)=+\infty$; then the only continuous map $\Sigma\colon\bbd R\to\bbd
R$ such that $\Delta\circ\Sigma=\Delta$ is the identity
$\Sigma=\id_{\bbd R}$.
