Abstract. In 1970, R. Freese proved that the variety ${\bf M}^4$ generated by modular lattices of width at most $4$ has a finite basis. As an application, he obtained a complete description of all subdirectly irreducible members of this variety. We obtain an intuitive description of how congruences generated by a prime interval spread in a modular lattice of width at most $4$, and apply the result to reprove Freese's description of subdirectly irreducible lattices of width at most $4$.

Abstract. We show, under a weak assumption on the term $p$, that a variety of general algebras satisfies the congruence identity $p(\alpha_1, \ldots, \alpha_n) \subseteq q(\alpha_1, \ldots, \alpha_n )$ if and only if it satisfies the tolerance identity $p(\Theta_1, \ldots, \Theta_n) \subseteq q(\Theta_1, \ldots, \Theta_n)$, provided we restrict ourselves to tolerances representable as $R \circ R^$. Varieties in which every tolerance is representable include all congruence permutable varieties and all varieties of lattices. For arbitrary tolerances, the congruence identity $p(\alpha_1, \ldots, \alpha_n) \subseteq q(\alpha_1, \ldots, \alpha_n )$ is equivalent to the identity $p(\Theta_1 \circ\Theta _1, \ldots, \Theta_n \circ\Theta _n) \subseteq q(\Theta_1 \circ\Theta _1, \ldots, \Theta_n \circ\Theta _n)$. See Theorems 3, 4 and 5. Our arguments essentially deal with labeled graphs, rather than terms; we try to clarify the role of graphs in the study of Mal'cev conditions (see especially Proposition 21 and Theorem 22).

Abstract. Let ${\rm A}(G)$ denote the automorphism group of a group $G$. A polynomial automorphism of $G$ is an automorphism of the form $x\mapsto(v_{1}^{1}x^{\epsilon_{1}}v_{1})\ldots(v_{m}^{1}x^{\epsilon_{m}}v_{m})$. We prove that if $G$ is nilpotent (resp. metabelian), then so is the subgroup of ${\rm A}(G)$ generated by all polynomial automorphisms.

Abstract. In this paper we prove that every $E$unitary cover of an orthodox semigroup with a regular band of idempotents arises from a close embedding into an almost factorizable orthodox semigroup. Since every orthodox semigroup has an $E$unitary cover, this shows that every orthodox semigroup with a regular band of idempotents is closely embeddable into an almost factorizable orthodox semigroup.

Abstract. We introduce the $\omega $tangential maximal function and the $\omega $LittlewoodPaley function associated with Beurling's generalized distributions, which are extensions of Schwartz's distributions in terms of the weight function $\omega $. We compare the $\nu $weighted $L^p$norms of these maximal functions, and relations among several kinds of maximal functions. Also, we study the extension of Beurling's distributions on $R^n$ to $R^{n+1}_+$ by means of convolutions. As an application of these results we establish estimates between some of the above $\omega $maximal functions associated to the extension.

Abstract. We define spaces $H_{p}^+(w),$ $H_{p}^(w)$ for weight functions $w$ with singularities in finitely many points and show that the dimension of $H_{p}^+(w)\cap H_{p}^(w)$ is finite and depends on the number of singularities. We find the codimension in $L^p(w)$ of the subspaces generated by $H_{p}^+(w)\cup H_{p}^(w).$ Necessary and sufficient conditions on the weight function $w$ are found so that the natural projection from $L^p(w)$ onto $H_{p}^+(w)$ exists for $1< p< \infty.$ It is also shown that no natural projection from $L^1(w)$ onto $H_{1}^+(w)$ may exist for any weight function $w $ under consideration.

Abstract. We consider the space $E=E(\Omega,\. \)$ as the commutative C*algebra ${\cal C}_0(\Omega )$ equipped with a norm $\. \$ having the monotonicity property $\f \\ge\g \$ if $ f  \ge  g  $. We show there exists a finest partition $\Pi $ of the underlying space $\Omega $ along with a function $m\colon\Omega \to{\msbm R}_+$ with the following properties: $\sup_{S\in\Pi } \# S < \infty $, $0<\inf m\le\sup m < \infty $ and each $E$Hermitian operator $A$ can be written in the matrix form $Af(\omega ) = \sum_{\eta\in S} a^{(S)}_{\omega\eta } f(\eta )$, $\omega\in S \in\Pi _E$ with some system $[ a^{(S)} : S \in\Pi ]$ of matrices $a^{(S)} = [ a^{(S)}_{\omega\eta } ]_{\omega,\eta\in S}$ indexed with the elements of $\Omega $ and we have $\{f _{S} : \f \\le1\} = \{\varphi\in {\cal C}(S): \sum_{\omega\in S}  \varphi(\omega )  ^2 \le1\} $ for any partition member $S\in\Pi $. Hence, generalizing the BanachStone theorem, we obtain matrix descriptions for surjective isometries $E(\Omega,\. \) \to E(\widetilde{\Omega },\. \^\sim )$. We apply this result to show that unlike in the classical case of spectral norms, the linear isometric equivalence of the spaces $E(\Omega,\. \)$ and $E(\widetilde{\Omega },\. \^\sim )$ does not imply the existence of a positive surjective linear isometry in general, disproving a conjecture on Sunada type theorems for generalized Reinhardt domains.

Abstract. Assume that $T$ is a bounded linear operator on a Banach space $X$. Let $W$ be a closed $T$invariant subspace of $X.$ In this paper, the relationships between the spectral and Fredholm properties of $T$ and those of the pair of operators $T_{W}$ and $\widehat{T_{W}}$ are studied ($T_{W}$ is the restriction of $T$ to $W$ and $\widehat{T_{W}}$ is the operator determined by $T$ on $X/W).$ These results are applied to operators with infinite ascent or infinite strong descent.

Abstract. A localized version of the singleextension property is studied, for a bounded linear operator $T$ acting on a Banach space, at the points $\lambda\in {\msbm C}$ such that $\lambda IT$ is quasiFredholm. This property is also studied at the points $\lambda\in {\msbm C}$ which are not limit points of the approximate point spectrum and the surjectivity spectrum. As a consequence, we improve a classical Putnam result about the nonisolated boundary points of the spectrum. From the characterizations of this property we shall also deduce several results on cluster points of some distinguished parts of the spectrum.

Abstract. We introduce a topology in the set of all semiclosed operators in a Hilbert space and investigate the topological structure by using the method of quotients of bounded operators. Under our topology, it is shown that the set of all closed operators is open in the set of all semiclosed operators, and that the topology restricted to the set of all closed operators is strictly stronger than the topology induced from the gap metric.

Abstract. Consider a pencil of rays in the Euclidean or Hyperbolic plane. The question may arise whether a polygon with equal angles can be constructed in such a way that the vertices are located on the given set of rays. We will discuss the solutions for triangles and quadrilaterals where the conditions are exactly given.

Abstract. Merging asymptotic expansions are established for the distribution functions of suitably centered and normed cumulative winnings in a full sequence of generalized St.$ $Petersburg games. These expansions are given in terms of suitably chosen members from the classes of subsequential semistable infinitely divisible asymptotic distribution functions and certain derivatives of these functions, where the classes themselves are determined by the two parameters of the game. Depending upon the most interesting cases of the tail parameter, which include the classical St.$ $Petersburg game, the expansions yield best possible rates of uniform merge with the selected semistable distribution functions.

Abstract. A collector samples with replacement a set of $n\ge2$ distinct coupons until he has, for the first time, all the coupons with only $m_n\in\{0,1,\ldots,n1\} $ missing. If $m_n\to\infty $ and $(nm_n)/\sqrt{n}\to\infty $ as $n\to\infty $, then the asymptotic distribution of the standardized random number of necessary draws is normal. With a Fourieranalytic method, we give a bound for the rates of convergence in these central limit theorems.

Abstract. We deduce a partial version of the KMT (1975) inequality for coupling the uniform empirical process with a sequence of Brownian bridges via the construction used by Csörgő and Révész (CsR) (1978) for their similar coupling of the uniform quantile process with another sequence of Brownian bridges. These constructions are pivoted on the KMT (1975, 1976) inequalities for approximating partial sums by a Wiener process (Brownian motion).

For a sequence of realvalued i.i.d. mean $0$ random variables $\{X, X_{n}; n \geq1 \} $ with partial sums $S_{n} = \sum_{i=1}^n X_{i}$, $n \geq1$, conditions are provided for $\{X, X_{n}; n \geq1 \} $ to enjoy onesided iterated logarithm type behavior of the form $0 < \limsup_{n \rightarrow\infty } S_{n}/\sqrt{nh(n)} < \infty $ almost surely where $h(\cdot )$ is a positive, nondecreasing function which is slowly varying at infinity. New results are obtained as special cases and some open problems are posed.

Abstract. Data truncation is a problem in scientific investigations. So far, statistical models and inferences are mostly based on the assumption that the survival and truncation times are independent, which can be unrealistic in applications. In a nonparametric setting, we discuss identifiability of the conditional and unconditional survival and hazard functions when the survival times are subject to dependent truncation, namely, the survival time is dependent on the truncation time. Nonparametric kernel estimators of these unknowns are proposed. Usefulness of the nonparametric estimators is demonstrated through their theoretical properties, an application and a simulation study.
