3  Periodic steadystate solutions of a liquid film model via a classical method Alhasanat, Ahmad; Ou, Chunhua
In this paper, periodic steadystate of a liquid film flowing
over a periodic uneven wall is investigated via a classical method.
Specifically, we analyze a longwave model that is valid at
the nearcritical Reynolds number. For the periodic wall surface,
we construct an iteration scheme in terms of an integral form
of the original steadystate problem. The uniform convergence
of the scheme is proved so that we can derive the existence and
the uniqueness, as well as the asymptotic formula, of the periodic
solutions.


16  Classification of simple weight modules over the Schrödinger algebra Bavula, V. V.; Lu, T.
A classification of simple weight modules over the Schrödinger
algebra is given. The Krull and the global dimensions are found
for the centralizer $C_{\mathcal{S}}(H)$ (and some of its prime factor
algebras) of the Cartan element $H$ in the universal enveloping
algebra $\mathcal{S}$ of the Schrödinger (Lie) algebra. The simple
$C_{\mathcal{S}}(H)$modules are classified. The Krull and the global
dimensions are found for some (prime) factor algebras of the
algebra $\mathcal{S}$ (over the centre). It is proved that some (prime)
factor algebras of $\mathcal{S}$ and $C_{\mathcal{S}}(H)$ are tensor homological/Krull
minimal.


40  A sharp bound on RIC in generalized orthogonal matching pursuit Chen, Wengu; Ge, Huanmin
Generalized orthogonal matching pursuit (gOMP) algorithm has
received much attention in recent years as a natural extension
of
orthogonal matching pursuit (OMP). It is used to recover sparse
signals in compressive sensing. In this paper, a new bound is
obtained for the exact reconstruction of every $K$sparse signal
via
the gOMP algorithm in the noiseless case. That is, if the restricted
isometry constant (RIC) $\delta_{NK+1}$ of the sensing matrix
$A$
satisfies $ \delta_{NK+1}\lt \frac{1}{\sqrt{\frac{K}{N}+1}}$, then
the
gOMP can perfectly recover every $K$sparse signal $x$ from $y=Ax$.
Furthermore, the bound is proved to be sharp.
In the noisy case, the above bound on RIC combining with an
extra condition on the minimum
magnitude of the nonzero components of $K$sparse signals can
guarantee
that the gOMP selects all of support indices of the $K$sparse
signals.


55  Enumerating unlabelled embeddings of digraphs Chen, Yichao; Gao, Xiaojian; Huang, Yuanqiu
A $2$cell embedding of an Eulerian digraph $D$
into a closed surface is said to be directed if the
boundary of each face is a directed closed walk in $D$. In this
paper, a method is developed with the purpose of enumerating
unlabelled embeddings for an Eulerian digraph. As an application,
we obtain explicit formulas for the number of unlabelled embeddings
of directed bouquets of cycles $B_n$, directed dipoles $OD_{2n}$
and for a class of regular tournaments $T_{2n+1}$.


70  Hilbert Transformation and Representation of the $ax+b$ Group Dang, Pei; Liu, Hua; Qian, Tao
In this paper we study the Hilbert transformations over
$L^2(\mathbb{R})$
and $L^2(\mathbb{T})$ from
the viewpoint of symmetry. For a linear operator over $L^2(\mathbb{R})$
commutative with the ax+b group we show that the operator is
of the form
$
\lambda I+\eta H,
$
where $I$ and $H$ are the identity operator and Hilbert transformation
respectively, and $\lambda,\eta$ are complex numbers. In the
related literature this result was proved through first invoking
the boundedness result of the operator, proved though a big
machinery.
In our setting the boundedness is a consequence of the boundedness
of the Hilbert transformation. The methodology that we use is
GelfandNaimark's representation of the ax+b group. Furthermore
we prove a similar result on the unit circle. Although there
does not exist a group like ax+b on the unit circle, we construct
a semigroup to play the same symmetry role for the Hilbert transformations
over the circle $L^2(\mathbb{T}).$


85  On subcritically Stein fillable 5manifolds Ding, Fan; Geiges, Hansjörg; Zhang, Guangjian
We make some elementary observations concerning subcritically
Stein
fillable contact structures on $5$manifolds.
Specifically, we determine the diffeomorphism type of such
contact manifolds in the case the fundamental group is finite
cyclic,
and we show that on the $5$sphere the standard contact structure
is the unique subcritically fillable one. More generally,
it is shown that subcritically fillable contact structures
on simply connected $5$manifolds are determined by their
underlying almost contact structure. Along the way, we discuss
the
homotopy classification of almost contact structures.


97  On a singular integral of ChristJourné type with homogeneous kernel Ding, Yong; Lai, Xudong
In this paper, we prove that the following singular integral
defined by
$$T_{\Omega,a}f(x)=\operatorname{p.v.}\int_{\mathbb{R}^{d}}\frac{\Omega(xy)}{xy^d}\cdot m_{x,y}a\cdot
f(y)dy$$
is bounded on $L^p(\mathbb{R}^d)$ for $1\lt p\lt \infty$ and is of weak type
(1,1), where $\Omega\in L\log^+L(\mathbb{S}^{d1})$ and
$m_{x,y}a=:\int_0^1a(sx+(1s)y)ds$
with $a\in L^\infty(\mathbb{R}^d)$ satisfying some restricted conditions.


114  A characterization of $C^{\ast}$normed algebras via positive functionals Haralampidou, Marina; Oudadess, Mohamed; Palacios, Lourdes; Signoret, Carlos
We give a characterization of $C^{\ast}$normed algebras, among
certain involutive normed ones. This is done through the existence
of enough specific positive functionals. The same question is
also
examined in some non normed (topological) algebras.


124  The Jordan Curve Theorem via Complex Analysis Hemasundar, Gollakota V. V.; Simha, R. R.
The aim of this article is to give a proof of the Jordan Curve
Theorem via complex analysis.


130  Additive maps on units of rings Koşan, Tamer; Sahinkaya, Serap; Zhou, Yiqiang
Let $R$ be a ring. A map $f: R\rightarrow R$
is additive if $f(a+b)=f(a)+f(b)$ for all elements $a$ and $b$
of $R$.
Here a map $f: R\rightarrow R$ is called unitadditive if $f(u+v)=f(u)+f(v)$
for all units $u$ and $v$ of $R$. Motivated by a recent result
of Xu, Pei and Yi
showing that, for any field $F$, every
unitadditive map of ${\mathbb M}_n(F)$ is additive for all $n\ge
2$, this paper is about the question when every unitadditive
map of a ring is additive. It is proved that every unitadditive
map of a semilocal ring $R$ is additive if and only if either
$R$ has no homomorphic image isomorphic to $\mathbb Z_2$ or $R/J(R)\cong
\mathbb Z_2$ with $2=0$ in $R$. Consequently, for any semilocal
ring $R$, every unitadditive map of ${\mathbb M}_n(R)$ is additive
for all $n\ge 2$. These results are further extended to rings
$R$ such that $R/J(R)$ is a direct product of exchange rings
with primitive factors Artinian. A unitadditive map $f$ of a
ring $R$ is called unithomomorphic if $f(uv)=f(u)f(v)$ for all
units $u,v$ of $R$. As an application, the question of when every
unithomomorphic map of a ring is an endomorphism is addressed.


142  An Equivalent Form of Picard's Theorem and Beyond Li, Bao Qin
This paper gives an equivalent form of Picard's
theorem via entire solutions of the functional equation $f^2+g^2=1$,
and then its improvements and applications to certain nonlinear
(ordinary and partial) differential equations.


149  Global phase portraits for the Abel quadratic polynomial differential equations of second kind with $Z_2$symmetries Llibre, Jaume; Valls, Claudia
We provide normal forms and the global phase portraits on the
Poincaré disk for all Abel quadratic polynomial differential
equations of the second kind with $\mathbb Z_2$symmetries.


166  A moduletheoretic characterization of algebraic hypersurfaces MirandaNeto, Cleto B.
In this note we prove the following surprising characterization:
if
$X\subset {\mathbb A}^n$ is an (embedded, nonempty, proper)
algebraic variety defined over a
field $k$ of characteristic zero, then $X$ is a hypersurface
if and only if the module $T_{{\mathcal O}_{{\mathbb
A}^n}/k}(X)$ of logarithmic vector fields of
$X$ is a reflexive ${\mathcal
O}_{{\mathbb A}^n}$module. As a consequence of this result,
we derive that if $T_{{\mathcal O}_{{\mathbb A}^n}/k}(X)$ is a
free ${\mathcal
O}_{{\mathbb A}^n}$module, which is shown to be equivalent
to the freeness of the $t$th exterior power of $T_{{\mathcal O}_{{\mathbb
A}^n}/k}(X)$ for some (in fact, any) $t\leq n$, then necessarily
$X$ is a Saito free divisor.


174  A factorization result for classical and similitude groups Roche, Alan; Vinroot, C. Ryan
For most classical and similitude groups, we show that each element
can be written as a product of two transformations that
a) preserve or almost preserve the underlying form and b) whose
squares are certain scalar maps. This generalizes work of Wonenburger
and Vinroot.
As an application, we reprove and slightly extend a well known
result of Mœglin, Vignéras and Waldspurger on the existence
of automorphisms of $p$adic classical groups that take each
irreducible smooth representation to its dual.


191  The FeffermanStein type inequalities for strong and directional maximal operators in the plane Saito, Hiroki; Tanaka, Hitoshi
The FeffermanStein type inequalities
for strong maximal operator and directional maximal operator
are verified with an additional composition of the HardyLittlewood
maximal operator in the plane.


201  Projective plane bundles over an elliptic curve Takahashi, Tomokuni
We calculate the dimension of cohomology groups for
the holomorphic tangent bundles of each isomorphism
class of the projective plane bundle over an elliptic curve.
As an application, we construct the families
of projective plane bundles, and prove that the families
are effectively parametrized and complete.


211  The asymptotics of the higher dimensional Reidemeister torsion for exceptional surgeries along twist knots Tran, Anh T.; Yamaguchi, Yoshikazu
We determine the asymptotic behavior of the higher dimensional
Reidemeister torsion for
the graph manifolds obtained by exceptional surgeries along
twist knots.
We show that all irreducible
$\operatorname{SL}_2(\mathbb{C})$representations of the graph
manifold
are induced by irreducible metabelian representations of the
twist knot group.
We also give the set of the limits of the leading coefficients
in the higher dimensional Reidemeister torsion explicitly.


225  Higher $\ell^2$Betti Numbers of Universal Quantum Groups Bichon, Julien; Kyed, David; Raum, Sven
We calculate all $\ell^2$Betti numbers of the universal discrete
Kac quantum groups $\hat{\mathrm U}^+_n$ as well as their halfliberated
counterparts $\hat{\mathrm U}^*_n$.


236  A Note on Uniformly Bounded Cocycles into Finite von Neumann Algebras Boutonnet, Remi; Roydor, Jean
We give a short proof of a result of T. Bates
and T. Giordano stating that any uniformly bounded Borel cocycle
into a finite von Neumann algebra is cohomologous to a unitary
cocycle. We also point out a separability issue in
their proof. Our approach is based on the existence of a nonpositive
curvature metric on the positive cone of a finite von Neumann
algebra.


240  Hölder Continuous Solutions of Degenerate Differential Equations with Finite Delay Bu, Shangquan; Cai, Gang
Using known operatorvalued Fourier multiplier results on vectorvalued
Hölder continuous function spaces $C^\alpha (\mathbb R; X)$, we completely
characterize the $C^\alpha$wellposedness of the first order
degenerate differential equations with finite delay $(Mu)'(t)
= Au(t) + Fu_t + f(t)$ for $t\in\mathbb R$
by the boundedness of the $(M, F)$resolvent of $A$ under suitable
assumption on the delay operator $F$, where $A, M$ are closed
linear
operators on a Banach space $X$ satisfying $D(A)\cap D(M) \not=\{0\}$,
the delay operator $F$ is a bounded linear operator
from $C([r, 0]; X)$ to $X$ and $r \gt 0$ is fixed.


252  Connectivity in Hypergraphs Dewar, Megan; Pike, David; Proos, John
In this paper we consider two natural notions of connectivity
for hypergraphs: weak and strong. We prove that the strong
vertex connectivity of a connected hypergraph is bounded by its
weak edge connectivity, thereby extending a theorem of Whitney
from graphs to hypergraphs. We find that while determining a
minimum weak vertex cut can be done in polynomial time and is
equivalent to finding a minimum vertex cut in the 2section of
the hypergraph in question, determining a minimum strong vertex
cut is NPhard for general hypergraphs. Moreover, the problem
of finding minimum strong vertex cuts remains NPhard when restricted
to hypergraphs with maximum edge size at most 3. We also discuss
the relationship between strong vertex connectivity and the
minimum
transversal problem for hypergraphs, showing that there are
classes
of hypergraphs for which one of the problems is NPhard while
the other can be solved in polynomial time.


272  Symmetric Products of Equivariantly Formal Spaces Franz, Matthias
Let \(X\) be a CW complex with a continuous action of a topological
group \(G\).
We show that if \(X\) is equivariantly formal for singular
cohomology
with coefficients in some field \(\Bbbk\), then so are all symmetric
products of \(X\)
and in fact all its \(\Gamma\)products.
In particular, symmetric products
of quasiprojective Mvarieties are again Mvarieties.
This generalizes a result by Biswas and D'Mello
about symmetric products of Mcurves.
We also discuss several related questions.


282  The Initial and Terminal Cluster Sets of an Analytic Curve Gauthier, Paul M
For an analytic curve $\gamma:(a,b)\rightarrow \mathbb C,$ the set of
values approached by $\gamma(t),$ as $t\searrow a$ and as $t\nearrow
b$ can be any two continuua of $\mathbb C\cup\{\infty\}.$


289  A Realanalytic Nonpolynomially Convex Isotropic Torus with No Attached Discs Gupta, Purvi
We show by means of an example in $\mathbb C^3$ that Gromov's
theorem on the presence of attached holomorphic discs for compact
Lagrangian manifolds is not true in the subcritical
realanalytic case, even in the absence of an obvious obstruction,
i.e, polynomial convexity.


292  A Note on a Unicity Theorem for the Gauss Maps of Complete Minimal Surfaces in Euclidean Fourspace Ha, Pham Hoang; Kawakami, Yu
The classical result of Nevanlinna states that two nonconstant
meromorphic functions on the complex plane having the
same images for five distinct values must be identically equal
to each other. In this paper, we give a similar uniqueness theorem for the Gauss maps of complete minimal surfaces in Euclidean
fourspace.


301  Remarks on Hopf Images and Quantum Permutation Groups $S_n^+$ Józiak, Paweł
Motivated by a question of A. Skalski and P.M. Sołtan (2016)
about inner faithfulness of the S. Curran's map of extending
a quantum increasing sequence to a quantum permutation, we revisit
the results and techniques of T. Banica and J. Bichon (2009)
and study some grouptheoretic properties of the quantum permutation
group on $4$ points. This enables us not only to answer the aforementioned
question in positive in case $n=4, k=2$, but also to classify
the automorphisms of $S_4^+$, describe all the embeddings $O_{1}(2)\subset
S_4^+$ and show that all the copies of $O_{1}(2)$ inside $S_4^+$
are conjugate. We then use these results to show that the converse
to the criterion we applied to answer the aforementioned question
is not valid.


318  Adnilpotent Elements of Semiprime Rings with Involution Lee, TsiuKwen
Let $R$ be an $n!$torsion free semiprime ring with
involution $*$ and with extended centroid $C$, where $n\gt 1$ is
a positive integer. We characterize $a\in K$, the Lie algebra
of skew elements in $R$, satisfying $(\operatorname{ad}_a)^n=0$ on $K$. This
generalizes both Martindale and Miers' theorem
and the theorem of Brox et al.
To prove it we
first prove that if $a, b\in R$ satisfy
$(\operatorname{ad}_a)^n=\operatorname{ad}_b$ on
$R$, where either $n$ is even or $b=0$, then
$\big(a\lambda\big)^{[\frac{n+1}{2}]}=0$
for some $\lambda\in C$.


328  Moduli of Space Sheaves with Hilbert Polynomial $4m+1$ Maican, Mario
We investigate the moduli space of sheaves supported on space
curves of degree $4$ and having Euler characteristic $1$.
We give an elementary proof of the fact that this moduli space
consists of three irreducible components.


346  Counting Separable Polynomials in $\mathbb{Z}/n[x]$ Polak, Jason K. C.
For a commutative ring $R$, a polynomial $f\in R[x]$ is called
separable if $R[x]/f$ is a separable $R$algebra. We derive formulae
for the number of separable polynomials when $R = \mathbb{Z}/n$, extending
a result of L. Carlitz. For instance, we show that the number
of separable polynomials in $\mathbb{Z}/n[x]$
that are separable is $\phi(n)n^d\prod_i(1p_i^{d})$
where $n = \prod p_i^{k_i}$ is the prime factorisation of $n$
and $\phi$ is Euler's totient function.


353  Ground State and Multiple Solutions for Kirchhoff Type Equations with Critical Exponent Qin, Dongdong; He, Yubo; Tang, Xianhua
In this paper, we consider the following
critical Kirchhoff type equation:
\begin{align*}
\left\{
\begin{array}{lll}

\left(a+b\int_{\Omega}\nabla u^2
\right)\Delta u=Q(x)u^4u + \lambda u^{q1}u,~~\mbox{in}~~\Omega,
\\
u=0,\quad \text{on}\quad \partial \Omega,
\end{array}
\right.
\end{align*}
By using variational methods that are constrained to the Nehari
manifold,
we prove that the above equation has a ground state solution
for the case when $3\lt q\lt 5$.
The relation between the number of maxima of $Q$
and the number of positive solutions for the problem is also
investigated.


370  A Remark on Certain Integral Operators of Fractional Type Rocha, Pablo Alejandro
For $m, n \in \mathbb{N}$, $1\lt m \leq n$, we write $n = n_1 +
\dots + n_m$ where $\{ n_1, \dots, n_m \} \subset \mathbb{N}$. Let
$A_1, \dots, A_m$ be $n \times n$ singular real matrices such that
$\bigoplus_{i=1}^{m} \bigcap_{1\leq j \neq i \leq m} \mathcal{N}_j
= \mathbb{R}^{n},$ where
$\mathcal{N}_j = \{ x : A_j x = 0 \}$, $dim(\mathcal{N}_j)=nn_j$
and $A_1+ \dots+ A_m$ is invertible. In this paper we study integral
operators of the form
$T_{r}f(x)= \int_{\mathbb{R}^{n}} \, xA_1 y^{n_1 + \alpha_1}
\cdots xA_m y^{n_m + \alpha_m} f(y) \, dy,$
$n_1 + \dots + n_m = n$, $\frac{\alpha_1}{n_1} = \dots = \frac{\alpha_m}{n_m}=r$,
$0 \lt r \lt 1$, and the matrices $A_i$'s are as above. We obtain
the $H^{p}(\mathbb{R}^{n})L^{q}(\mathbb{R}^{n})$ boundedness
of $T_r$ for $0\lt p\lt \frac{1}{r}$ and $\frac{1}{q}=\frac{1}{p} 
r$.


376  Elliptic Zeta Functions and Equivariant Functions Sebbar, Abdellah; AlShbeil, Isra
In this paper we establish a close connection between three
notions attached to a modular subgroup. Namely the set of weight
two meromorphic modular forms, the set of equivariant functions
on the upper halfplane commuting with the action of the modular
subgroup and the set of elliptic zeta functions generalizing
the Weierstrass zeta functions. In particular, we show that the
equivariant functions can be parameterized by modular objects
as well as by elliptic objects.


390  A Multiplier Theorem on Anisotropic Hardy Spaces Wang, Lian Daniel
We present a multiplier theorem on anisotropic
Hardy spaces. When $m$ satisfies the anisotropic, pointwise Mihlin
condition, we obtain boundedness of the multiplier operator $T_m
: H_A^p (\mathbb R^n) \rightarrow H_A^p (\mathbb R^n)$, for the range of $p$
that depends on the eccentricities of the dilation $A$ and the
level of regularity of a multiplier symbol $m$. This extends
the classical multiplier theorem of Taibleson and Weiss.


405  Growth Rates of 3dimensional Hyperbolic Coxeter Groups are Perron Numbers Yukita, Tomoshige
In this paper we consider the growth rates of 3dimensional hyperbolic
Coxeter polyhedra with at least one dihedral angle of the form
$\frac{\pi}{k}$ for an integer $k\geq{7}$.
Combining a classical result by Parry with
a previous result of ours,
we prove that the growth rates of
3dimensional hyperbolic Coxeter groups are Perron numbers.


423  Stability of Traveling Wavefronts for a TwoComponent Lattice Dynamical System Arising in Competition Models Zhang, GuoBao; Tian, Ge
In this paper, we study a twocomponent LotkaVolterra competition
system
on an onedimensional spatial lattice. By the method of the comparison
principle together with
the weighted energy, we prove that the traveling wavefronts with
large speed are exponentially asymptotically stable,
when the initial perturbation around the traveling wavefronts
decays
exponentially as $j+ct \rightarrow \infty$, where $j\in\mathbb{Z}$,
$t\gt 0$, but the initial perturbation
can be arbitrarily large on other locations. This partially answers
an open problem by J.S. Guo and C.H. Wu.


438  Classification of Solutions for Harmonic Functions with Neumann Boundary Value Zhang, Tao; Zhou, Chunqin
In this paper, we classify all solutions of
\[
\left\{
\begin{array}{rcll}
\Delta u &=& 0 \quad &\text{ in }\mathbb{R}^{2}_{+},
\\
\dfrac{\partial u}{\partial t}&=&cx^{\beta}e^{u} \quad
&\text{ on }\partial \mathbb{R}^{2}_{+} \backslash \{0\},
\\
\end{array}
\right.
\]
with the finite conditions
\[
\int_{\partial \mathbb{R}^{2}_{+}}x^{\beta}e^{u}ds \lt C,
\qquad
\sup\limits_{\overline{\mathbb{R}^{2}_{+}}}{u(x)}\lt C.
\]
Here, $c$ is a positive number and $\beta \gt 1$.
