Homotopy Equivalence and Groups of MeasurePreserving Homeomorphisms It is shown that the group of compactly
supported, measurepreserving homeomorphisms of a
connected, second countable manifold is locally contractible in the direct limit topology.
Furthermore, this group is weakly homotopically equivalent to the more general group of
compactly supported homeomorphisms.

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 NewlanderNirenberg
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.

Short Geodesics of Unitaries in the $L^2$ Metric Let $\M$ be a type II$_1$ von Neumann algebra, $\tau$ a trace in $\M$,
and $\l2$ the GNS Hilbert space of $\tau$. We regard the unitary group
$U_\M$ as a subset of $\l2$ and characterize the shortest smooth
curves joining two fixed unitaries in the $L^2$ metric. As a
consequence of this we obtain that $U_\M$, though a complete (metric)
topological group, is not an embedded riemannian submanifold of $\l2$

Enlarged Inclusion of Subdifferentials This paper studies the integration of inclusion of subdifferentials. Under
various verifiable conditions, we obtain that if two proper lower
semicontinuous functions $f$ and $g$ have the subdifferential of $f$
included in the $\gamma$enlargement of the subdifferential of $g$, then
the difference of those functions is $ \gamma$Lipschitz over their
effective domain.

Remarques sur l'enlacement en thÃ©orie des points critiques pour des fonctionnelles continues Dans cet article, \`a partir de la notion d'enlacement introduite
dans ~\cite{F} entre des paires d'ensembles $(B,A)$ et $(Q,P)$,
nous \'etablissons l'existence d'un point critique d'une
fonctionnelle continue sur un espace m\'etrique lorsqu'une de ces
paires enlace l'autre. Des renseignements sur la localisation du
point critique sont aussi obtenus. Ces r\'esultats conduisent \`a
une g\'en\'eralisation du th\'eor\`eme des trois points critiques.
Finalement, des applications \`a des probl\`emes aux limites pour
une \'equation quasilin\'eaire elliptique sont pr\'esent\'ees.

A Compactness Theorem for YangMills Connections In this paper, we consider YangMills connections
on a vector bundle $E$ over a compact Riemannian manifold $M$ of

A Residue Formula for $\SU(2)$Valued Moment Maps Jeffrey and Kirwan gave expressions

$M_0=\mu^{1}(0)/G$ of a Hamiltonian $G$space $M$
in terms of multiple residues.
In this paper we prove a residue formula for
symplectic volumes of reduced spaces of a quasiHamiltonian
$\SU(2)$space. The definition of quasiHamiltonian
$G$spaces was recently introduced in .

On the Composition of Differentiable Functions We prove that a Banach space $X$ has the Schur property if and only if every
$X$valued weakly differentiable function is Fr\'echet differentiable. We
give a general result on the Fr\'echet differentiability of $f\circ T$, where
$f$ is a Lipschitz function and $T$ is a compact linear operator. Finally
we study, using in particular a smooth variational principle, the
differentiability of the semi norm $\Vert \ \Vert_{\lip}$ on various spaces
of Lipschitz functions.

The Local MÃ¶bius Equation and Decomposition Theorems in Riemannian Geometry A partial differential equation, the local M\"obius equation, is
introduced in Riemannian geometry which completely characterizes the
local twisted product structure of a Riemannian manifold. Also the
characterizations of warped product and product structures of
Riemannian manifolds are made by the local M\"obius equation and an
additional partial differential equation.

Invariant Measures and Natural Extensions We study ergodic properties of a family of interval maps that are
given as the fractional parts of certain real M\"obius
transformations. Included are the maps that are exactly
$n$to$1$, the classical Gauss map and the Renyi or backward
continued fraction map. A new approach is presented for deriving
explicit realizations of natural automorphic extensions and their
invariant measures.

RealAnalytic Negligibility of Points and Subspaces in Banach Spaces, with Applications We prove that every infinitedimensional Banach space $X$ having a
(not necessarily equivalent) realanalytic norm is realanalytic
diffeomorphic to $X \setminus \{0\}$. More generally, if $X$ is an
infinitedimensional Banach space and $F$ is a closed subspace of $X$
such that there is a realanalytic seminorm on $X$ whose set of zeros
is $F$, and $X/F$ is infinitedimensional, then $X$ and $X \setminus
F$ are realanalytic diffeomorphic. As an application we show the
existence of realanalytic free actions of the circle and the
$n$torus on certain Banach spaces.

Let $H_0 = \frac{x^2+y^2}{2}$ be an isochronous Hamiltonian of the
plane $\Rset^2$. We obtain a necessary condition for a system to be
isochronous. We can think of this result as a generalization of the
isochronous behaviour of the homogeneous polynomial perturbation of
the Hamiltonian $H_0$ considered in [L], [P], [S].

LinÃ©arisation symplectique en dimension 2 In this paper the germ of neighborhood of a compact leaf in a
Lagrangian foliation is symplectically classified when the compact
leaf is $\bT^2$, the affine structure induced by the Lagrangian
foliation on the leaf is complete, and the holonomy of $\bT^2$ in
the foliation linearizes. The germ of neighborhood is classified by a
function, depending on one transverse coordinate, this function is
related to the affine structure of the nearly compact leaves.

Growth Estimates on Positive Solutions of the Equation $\Delta u+K u^{\frac{n+2}{n2}}=0$ in $\R^n$ We construct unbounded positive $C^2$solutions of the equation
$\Delta u + K u^{(n + 2)/(n  2)} = 0$ in $\R^n$ (equipped
with Euclidean metric $g_o$) such that $K$ is bounded between two
positive numbers in $\R^n$, the conformal metric $g=u^{4/(n2)}g_o$
is complete, and the volume growth of $g$ can be arbitrarily fast
or reasonably slow according to the constructions. By imposing natural
conditions on $u$, we obtain growth estimate on the $L^{2n/(n2)}$norm
of the solution and show that it has slow decay.

On Quantizing Nilpotent and Solvable Basic Algebras We prove an algebraic ``nogo theorem'' to the effect that a
nontrivial \pa\ cannot be realized as an associative algebra with the
commu\ta\tor bracket. Using it, we show that there is an
obstruction to quantizing the \pa\ of polynomials generated by a
nilpotent \ba\ on a \sm. This result generalizes \gr 's famous
theorem on the impossibility of quantizing the Poisson algebra of
polynomials on $\r^{2n}$. Finally, we explicitly construct a
polynomial quantization of a \sm\ with a solvable \ba, thereby showing
that the obstruction in the nilpotent case does not extend to the
solvable case.

Helices, Hasimoto Surfaces and BÃ¤cklund Transformations Travelling wave solutions to the vortex filament flow generated by
elastica produce surfaces in $\R^3$ that carry mutually orthogonal
foliations by geodesics and by helices. These surfaces are classified
in the special cases where the helices are all congruent or are all
generated by a single screw motion. The first case yields a new
characterization for the B\"acklund transformation for constant
torsion curves in $\R^3$, previously derived from the wellknown
transformation for pseudospherical surfaces. A similar investigation
for surfaces in $H^3$ or $S^3$ leads to a new transformation for
constant torsion curves in those spaces that is also derived from
pseudospherical surfaces.

Subdifferential Regularity of Directionally Lipschitzian Functions Formulas for the Clarke subdifferential are always expressed in the
form of inclusion. The equality form in these formulas generally
requires the functions to be directionally regular. This paper
studies the directional regularity of the general class of
extendedrealvalued functions that are directionally Lipschitzian.
Connections with the concept of subdifferential regularity are also
established.

Eigenfunction Decay For the Neumann Laplacian on HornLike Domains The growth properties at infinity for eigenfunctions corresponding to
embedded eigenvalues of the Neumann Laplacian on hornlike domains
are studied. For domains that pinch at polynomial rate, it is shown
that the eigenfunctions vanish at infinity faster than the reciprocal
of any polynomial. For a class of domains that pinch at an exponential
rate, weaker, $L^2$ bounds are proven. A corollary is that eigenvalues
can accumulate only at zero or infinity.

A Remark On the MoserAubin Inequality For Axially Symmetric Functions On the Sphere Let $\scr S_r$ be the collection of all axially symmetric functions
$f$ in the Sobolev space $H^1(\Sph^2)$ such that $\int_{\Sph^2}
x_ie^{2f(\mathbf{x})} \, d\omega(\mathbf{x})$ vanishes for $i=1,2,3$.
We prove that
$$
\inf_{f\in \scr S_r} \frac12 \int_{\Sph^2} \nabla f^2 \, d\omega
+ 2\int_{\Sph^2} f \, d\omega \log \int_{\Sph^2} e^{2f} \, d\omega > \oo,
$$
and that this infimum is attained. This complements recent work of
Feldman, Froese, Ghoussoub and Gui on a conjecture of Chang and Yang
concerning the MoserAubin inequality.
