Hautes Études Sci. Publ. Math. (1982), no.&nbsp;56, 5–99. Since then it has sparked much research in Geometric Group Theory. However, it is notoriously hard to explicitly compute bounded cohomology, even for most basic “non-positively curved” groups. On the other hand, there is a well-known interpretation of <em>ordinary</em> group cohomology in dimension $2$ and $3$ in terms of group extensions. The aim of this paper is to make this interpretation available for <em>bounded</em> group cohomology. This will involve <em>quasihomomorphisms</em> as defined and studied by K.&nbsp;Fujiwara and M.&nbsp;Kapovich, <em>On quasihomomorphisms with noncommutative targets</em>, Geom. Funct. Anal. 26 (2016), no.&nbsp;2, 478–519.</p> 2020-03-29T00:00:00+01:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Hopf algebra actions and transfer of Frobenius and symmetric properties 2020-04-06T03:48:29+02:00 S.

Combin. Theory Ser.&nbsp;A 143 (2016), 66–87, give a beautiful geometric characterization of Artinian quotients by ideals generated by quadratic or cubic monomials, such that the multiplication map by a general linear form fails to be injective in the first nontrivial degree. Their work was motivated by conjectures of Ilardi and Mezzetti, Miró-Roig and&nbsp;Ottaviani, connecting the failure to Laplace equations and classical results of Togliatti on osculating planes. We study quotients by quadratic monomial ideals, explaining failure of the Weak Lefschetz Property for some cases not covered by Michałek and&nbsp;Miró-Roig.</p> 2020-03-29T00:00:00+01:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## New characterizations of spacelike hyperplanes in the steady state space 2020-04-06T03:47:59+02:00 Cícero P. Aquino Halyson I. Baltazar Henrique F. de Lima <p>In this article, we deal with complete spacelike hypersurfaces immersed in an open region of the de Sitter space $\mathbb {S}^{n+1}_{1}$ which is known as the steady state space $\mathcal {H}^{n+1}$. Under suitable constraints on the behavior of the higher order mean curvatures of these hypersurfaces, we are able to prove that they must be spacelike hyperplanes of $\mathcal {H}^{n+1}$. Furthermore, through the analysis of the hyperbolic cylinders of $\mathcal {H}^{n+1}$, we discuss the importance of the main hypothesis in our results. Our approach is based on a generalized maximum principle at infinity for complete Riemannian manifolds.</p> 2020-03-29T00:00:00+01:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Theta-regularity and log-canonical threshold 2020-04-06T03:48:23+02:00 Morten Øygarden Sofia Tirabassi <p>We show that an inequality, proven by Küronya-Pintye, which governs the behavior of the log-canonical threshold of an ideal over $\mathbb {P}^n$ and that of its Castelnuovo-Mumford regularity, can be applied to the setting of principally polarized abelian varieties by substituting the Castelnuovo-Mumford regularity with Θ-regularity of Pareschi-Popa.</p> 2020-03-29T00:00:00+01:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Some operator inequalities for Hermitian Banach $*$-algebras 2020-04-06T03:48:34+02:00 Hamed Najafi <p>In this paper, we extend the Kubo-Ando theory from operator means on C$^{*}$-algebras to a Hermitian Banach $*$-algebra $\mathcal {A}$ with a continuous involution. For this purpose, we show that if $a$ and $b$ are self-adjoint elements in $\mathcal {A}$ with spectra in an interval $J$ such that $a \leq b$, then $f(a) \leq f(b)$ for every operator monotone function $f$ on $J$, where $f(a)$ and $f(b)$ are defined by the Riesz-Dunford integral. Moreover, we show that some convexity properties of the usual operator convex functions are preserved in the setting of Hermitian Banach $*$-algebras. In particular, Jensen's operator inequality is presented in these cases.</p> 2020-03-29T00:00:00+01:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Noncommutative coverings of quantum tori 2020-04-06T03:48:16+02:00 Kay Schwieger Stefan Wagner <p>We investigate a framework for coverings of noncommutative spaces.

We consider the role of the government and its simultaneous monetary and fiscal policies and we study whether or not a time delay between the recognition and the implementation of its fiscal policy can affect the economic stability. Numerical simulations provide further conclusions about the long-term behavior of the four variables modeled—namely, national income, capacity of production, bonds value and money supply.</p> 2020-03-29T00:00:00+01:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Backward shift invariant subspaces in reproducing kernel Hilbert spaces 2020-04-06T03:47:53+02:00 Emmanuel Fricain Javad Mashreghi Rishika Rupam <p>In this note, we describe the backward shift invariant subspaces for an abstract class of reproducing kernel Hilbert spaces. Our main result is inspired by a result of Sarason concerning de Branges-Rovnyak spaces (the non-extreme case). Furthermore, we give new applications in the context of the range space of co-analytic Toeplitz operators and sub-Bergman spaces.</p> 2020-03-29T00:00:00+01:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Issue covers 2020-03-29T18:36:15+02:00 Mathematica Scandinavica <p>Issue covers</p> 2020-03-29T00:00:00+01:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Volume title pages 2020-03-29T18:38:14+02:00 Mathematica Scandinavica <p>Volume title pages</p> 2020-03-29T00:00:00+01:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
