577  Erratum: The Duality Problem For The Class of AMCompact Operators On Banach Lattices Aqzzouz, Belmesnaoui
It is proved that if a positive operator
$S: E \rightarrow F$ is AMcompact whenever its adjoint
$S': F' \rightarrow E'$ is AMcompact, then either the
norm of F is order continuous or $E'$ is discrete.


580  Kiguradzetype Oscillation Theorems for Second Order Superlinear Dynamic Equations on Time Scales Baoguo, Jia; Erbe, Lynn; Peterson, Allan
Consider the second order superlinear dynamic equation
\begin{equation*}
(*)\qquad
x^{\Delta\Delta}(t)+p(t)f(x(\sigma(t)))=0\tag{$*$}
\end{equation*}
where $p\in C(\mathbb{T},\mathbb{R})$, $\mathbb{T}$ is a time scale,
$f\colon\mathbb{R}\rightarrow\mathbb{R}$ is
continuously differentiable and satisfies $f'(x)>0$, and $xf(x)>0$ for
$x\neq 0$. Furthermore, $f(x)$ also satisfies a superlinear condition, which
includes the nonlinear function $f(x)=x^\alpha$ with $\alpha>1$, commonly
known as the EmdenFowler case. Here the coefficient function $p(t)$ is
allowed to be negative for arbitrarily large values of $t$. In addition to
extending the result of Kiguradze for \eqref{star1} in the real case $\mathbb{T}=\mathbb{R}$, we
obtain analogues in the difference equation and $q$difference equation cases.


593  Stability of Real $C^*$Algebras Boersema, Jeffrey L.; Ruiz, Efren
We will give a characterization of stable real $C^*$algebras
analogous to the one given for complex $C^*$algebras by Hjelmborg
and Rørdam. Using this result, we will prove
that any real $C^*$algebra satisfying the corona factorization
property is stable if and only if its complexification is stable.
Real $C^*$algebras satisfying the corona factorization property
include AFalgebras and purely infinite $C^*$algebras. We will also
provide an example of a simple unstable $C^*$algebra, the
complexification of which is stable.


607  Lightness of Induced Maps and Homeomorphisms Camargo, Javier
An example is given of a map $f$ defined between arcwise connected continua such that $C(f)$ is light and
$2^{f}$ is not light, giving a negative answer to a question of Charatonik and Charatonik. Furthermore, given a positive
integer $n$, we study when the lightness of the induced map $2^{f}$ or $C_n(f)$ implies that $f$ is a
homeomorphism. Finally, we show a result in relation with the lightness of $C(C(f))$.


619  Artinian and NonArtinian Local Cohomology Modules Dibaei, Mohammad T.; Vahidi, Alireza
Let $M$ be a finite module over a commutative noetherian ring $R$.
For ideals $\mathfrak{a}$ and $\mathfrak{b}$ of $R$, the relations between
cohomological dimensions of $M$ with respect to $\mathfrak{a},
\mathfrak{b}$,
$\mathfrak{a}\cap\mathfrak{b}$ and $\mathfrak{a}+ \mathfrak{b}$ are studied. When $R$ is local, it is
shown that $M$ is generalized CohenMacaulay if there exists an
ideal $\mathfrak{a}$ such that all local cohomology modules of $M$ with
respect to $\mathfrak{a}$ have finite lengths. Also, when $r$ is an integer
such that $0\leq r< \dim_R(M)$, any maximal element $\mathfrak{q}$ of the
nonempty set of ideals $\{\mathfrak{a} : \textrm{H}_\mathfrak{a}^i(M)
$ is not artinian for
some $ i, i\geq r \}$ is a prime ideal, and all Bass numbers
of $\textrm{H}_\mathfrak{q}^i(M)$ are finite for all $i\geq r$.


630  Mixed Norm Type Hardy Inequalities Fiorenza, Alberto; Gupta, Babita; Jain, Pankaj
Higher dimensional mixed norm type
inequalities involving certain integral operators are
characterized in terms of the corresponding lower dimensional
inequalities.


645  An Extension of Craig's Family of Lattices Flores, André Luiz; Interlando, J. Carmelo; Neto, Trajano Pires da Nóbrega
Let $p$ be a prime, and let $\zeta_p$ be a primitive $p$th root of
unity. The lattices in Craig's family are $(p1)$dimensional and
are geometrical representations of the integral $\mathbb
Z[\zeta_p]$ideals $\langle 1\zeta_p \rangle^i$, where $i$ is a
positive integer. This lattice construction technique is a powerful
one. Indeed, in dimensions $p1$ where $149 \leq p \leq 3001$,
Craig's lattices are the densest packings known. Motivated by this,
we construct $(p1)(q1)$dimensional lattices from the integral
$\mathbb Z[\zeta _{pq}]$ideals $\langle 1\zeta_p \rangle^i \langle
1\zeta_q \rangle^j$, where $p$ and $q$ are distinct primes and $i$
and $j$ are positive integers. In terms of spherepacking density,
the new lattices and those in Craig's family have the same
asymptotic behavior. In conclusion, Craig's family is greatly
extended while preserving its spherepacking properties.


654  Norm One Idempotent $cb$Multipliers with Applications to the Fourier Algebra in the $cb$Multiplier Norm Forrest, Brian E.; Runde, Volker
For a locally compact group $G$, let $A(G)$ be its Fourier algebra, let $M_{cb}A(G)$ denote the completely
bounded multipliers of $A(G)$, and let $A_{\mathit{Mcb}}(G)$ stand for the closure of $A(G)$ in $M_{cb}A(G)$. We
characterize the norm one idempotents in $M_{cb}A(G)$: the indicator function of a set $E \subset G$ is a norm
one idempotent in $M_{cb}A(G)$ if and only if $E$ is a coset of an open subgroup of $G$. As applications, we
describe the closed ideals of $A_{\mathit{Mcb}}(G)$ with an approximate identity bounded by $1$, and we characterize
those $G$ for which $A_{\mathit{Mcb}}(G)$ is $1$amenable in the sense of B. E. Johnson. (We can even slightly
relax the norm bounds.)


663  Admissible Sequences for Twisted Involutions in Weyl Groups Haas, Ruth; G. Helminck, Aloysius
Let $W$ be a Weyl group, $\Sigma$ a set of simple reflections in $W$
related to a basis $\Delta$ for the root system $\Phi$ associated with
$W$ and $\theta$ an involution such that $\theta(\Delta) = \Delta$. We
show that the set of $\theta$twisted involutions in $W$,
$\mathcal{I}_{\theta} = \{w\in W \mid \theta(w) = w^{1}\}$ is in one
to one correspondence with the set of regular involutions
$\mathcal{I}_{\operatorname{Id}}$. The elements of $\mathcal{I}_{\theta}$ are
characterized by sequences in $\Sigma$ which induce an ordering called
the RichardsonSpringer Poset. In particular, for $\Phi$ irreducible,
the ascending RichardsonSpringer Poset of $\mathcal{I}_{\theta}$,
for nontrivial $\theta$ is identical to the descending
RichardsonSpringer Poset of $\mathcal{I}_{\operatorname{Id}}$.


676  Quasiisometry and Plaque Expansiveness Hammerlindl, Andy
We show that a partially hyperbolic diffeomorphism is plaque
expansive (a form of structural stability for its center foliation) if the
strong stable and unstable foliations are quasiisometric in the universal
cover. In particular, all partially hyperbolic diffeomorphisms on the 3torus
are plaque expansive.


680  $2$Local Isometries on Spaces of Lipschitz Functions JiménezVargas, A.; VillegasVallecillos, Moisés
Let $(X,d)$ be a metric space, and let $\mathop{\textrm{Lip}}(X)$ denote the Banach
space of all scalarvalued bounded Lipschitz functions $f$ on $X$
endowed with one of the natural norms
$
\ f\ =\max \{\ f\ _\infty ,L(f)\}$ or $\f\ =\
f\ _\infty +L(f),
$
where $L(f)$ is the
Lipschitz constant of $f.$ It is said that the isometry
group of $\mathop{\textrm{Lip}}(X)$ is canonical if every
surjective linear isometry of
$\mathop{\textrm{Lip}}(X) $ is induced by a surjective isometry of $X$.
In this paper
we prove that if $X$ is bounded separable and the isometry group of
$\mathop{\textrm{Lip}}(X)$ is canonical, then every $2$local isometry
of $\mathop{\textrm{Lip}}(X)$ is
a surjective linear isometry. Furthermore, we give a complete
description of all $2$local isometries of $\mathop{\textrm{Lip}}(X)$ when $X$ is
bounded.


693  Stratified Subcartesian Spaces Lusala, Tsasa; Śniatycki, Jędrzej
We show that if the family $\mathcal{O}$ of orbits of all vector fields on
a subcartesian space $P$ is locally finite and each orbit in $\mathcal{O}$
is locally closed, then $\mathcal{O}$ defines a smooth Whitney A
stratification of $P$. We also show that the stratification by orbit type of
the space of orbits $M/G$ of a proper action of a Lie group $G$ on a smooth
manifold $M$ is given by orbits of the family of all vector fields on $M/G$.


706  Nonconstant Continuous Functions whose Tangential Derivative Vanishes along a Smooth Curve Moonens, Laurent
We provide a simple example showing that the tangential derivative of a
continuous function $\phi$
can vanish everywhere along a curve while the variation of $\phi$ along
this curve is nonzero. We give additional regularity conditions on the curve
and/or the function that prevent this from happening.


716  Symplectic LieRinehartJacobi Algebras and Contact Manifolds Okassa, Eugène
We give a characterization of contact manifolds in terms of symplectic
LieRinehartJacobi algebras. We also give a sufficient condition for a Jacobi
manifold to be a contact manifold.


726  Auerbach Bases and Minimal Volume Sufficient Enlargements Ostrovskii, M. I.
Let $B_Y$ denote the unit ball of a
normed linear space $Y$. A symmetric, bounded, closed, convex set
$A$ in a finite dimensional normed linear space $X$ is called a
sufficient enlargement for $X$ if, for an arbitrary
isometric embedding of $X$ into a Banach space $Y$, there exists a
linear projection $P\colon Y\to X$ such that $P(B_Y)\subset A$. Each
finite dimensional normed space has a minimalvolume sufficient
enlargement that is a parallelepiped; some spaces have ``exotic''
minimalvolume sufficient enlargements. The main result of the
paper is a characterization of spaces having ``exotic''
minimalvolume sufficient enlargements in terms of Auerbach
bases.


739  The Infimum in the Metric Mahler Measure Samuels, Charles L.
Dubickas and Smyth defined the metric Mahler measure on the
multiplicative group of nonzero algebraic numbers.
The definition involves taking an infimum over representations
of an algebraic number $\alpha$ by other
algebraic numbers. We verify their conjecture that the
infimum in its definition is always achieved, and we establish its
analog for the ultrametric Mahler measure.


748  On the Distribution of Irreducible Trinomials Shparlinski, Igor E.
We obtain new results about the number of trinomials $t^n + at + b$
with integer coefficients in a box $(a,b) \in [C, C+A] \times [D,
D+B]$ that are irreducible modulo a prime $p$. As a byproduct we
show that for any $p$ there are irreducible polynomials of height at
most $p^{1/2+o(1)}$, improving on the previous estimate of
$p^{2/3+o(1)}$ obtained by the author in 1989.


757  Cancellation of Cusp Forms Coefficients over Beatty Sequences on $\textrm{GL}(m)$ Sun, Qingfeng
Let $A(n_1,n_2,\dots,n_{m1})$
be the normalized Fourier coefficients of
a Maass cusp form on $\textrm{GL}(m)$.
In this paper, we study the cancellation of $A
(n_1,n_2,\dots,n_{m1})$ over Beatty sequences.
