Aaghabali Z. Tajfirouz <p>Let $D$ be a division ring with centre $F$. An element of the form $xyx^{-1}y^{-1}\in D$ is called a multiplicative commutator. Let $T(D)$ be the vector space over $F$ generated by all multiplicative commutators in $D$. In M.&nbsp;Aghabali et al., J. Algebra Appl. 12 (2013), no.&nbsp;8, art.&nbsp;1350043, the authors have conjectured that every division ring is generated as a vector space over its centre by all of its multiplicative commutators. In this note it is shown that if $D$ is centrally finite, then the conjecture holds.</p> 2020-05-06T00:00:00+02:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## An upper bound for the regularity of powers of edge ideals 2020-08-09T03:21:35+02:00 Jürgen Herzog Takayuki Hibi <p>For a finite simple graph $G$ we give an upper bound for the regularity of the powers of the edge ideal $I(G)$.</p> 2020-05-06T00:00:00+02:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## On Ratliff-Rush closure of modules 2020-08-09T03:21:09+02:00 Naoki Endo <p>In this paper, we introduce the notion of Ratliff-Rush closure of modules and explore whether the condition of the Ratliff-Rush closure coincides with the integral closure. The main result characterizes the condition in terms of the normality of the projective scheme of the Rees algebra. In conclusion, we shall give a criterion for the Buchsbaum Rees algebras.</p> 2020-05-06T00:00:00+02:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Cohen-Macaulay homological dimensions 2020-08-09T03:21:19+02:00 Parviz Sahandi Tirdad Sharif Siamak Yassemi <p>We introduce new homological dimensions, namely the Cohen-Macaulay projective, injective and flat dimensions for homologically bounded complexes. Among other things we show that (a)&nbsp;these invariants characterize the Cohen-Macaulay property for local rings, (b)&nbsp;Cohen-Macaulay flat dimension fits between the Gorenstein flat dimension and the large restricted flat dimension, and (c)&nbsp;Cohen-Macaulay injective dimension fits between the Gorenstein injective dimension and the Chouinard invariant.</p> 2020-05-06T00:00:00+02:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Little dimension and the improved new intersection theorem 2020-08-09T03:20:53+02:00 Tsutomu Nakamura Ryo Takahashi Siamak Yassemi <p>Let $R$ be a commutative noetherian local ring.

Moreover, we discuss the connection to Barlet's well-known sheaf $\omega _X^1$.</p> 2020-05-06T00:00:00+02:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Hausdorff dimension of limsup sets of rectangles in the Heisenberg group 2020-08-09T03:21:30+02:00 Fredrik Ekström Esa Järvenpää Maarit Järvenpää <p>The almost sure value of the Hausdorff dimension of limsup sets generated by randomly distributed rectangles in the Heisenberg group is computed in terms of directed singular value functions.</p> 2020-05-06T00:00:00+02:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Extension of positive maps 2020-08-09T03:22:12+02:00 Erling Størmer <p>We prove an extension theorem for positive maps from operator systems into matrix algebras</p> 2020-05-06T00:00:00+02:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Local boundedness for minimizers of convex integral functionals in metric measure spaces 2020-08-09T03:22:06+02:00 Huiju Wang Pengcheng Niu <p>In this paper we consider the convex integral functional $ I := \int _\Omega {\Phi (g_u)\,d\mu } $ in the metric measure space $(X,d,\mu )$, where $X$ is a set, $d$ is a metric, µ is a Borel regular measure satisfying the doubling condition, Ω is a bounded open subset of $X$, $u$ belongs to the Orlicz-Sobolev space $N^{1,\Phi }(\Omega )$, Φ is an N-function satisfying the $\Delta _2$-condition, $g_u$ is the minimal Φ-weak upper gradient of $u$. By improving the corresponding method in the Euclidean space to the metric setting, we establish the local boundedness for minimizers of the convex integral functional under the assumption that $(X,d,\mu )$ satisfies the $(1,1)$-Poincaré inequality. The result of this paper can be applied to the Carnot-Carathéodory space spanned by vector fields satisfying Hörmander's condition.</p> 2020-05-06T00:00:00+02:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Compact group actions on operator algebras and their spectra 2020-08-09T03:21:50+02:00 Costel Peligrad <p>We consider a class of dynamical systems with compact non-abelian groups that include C*-, W*- and multiplier dynamical systems. We prove results that relate the algebraic properties such as simplicity or primeness of the fixed point algebras to the spectral properties of the action, including the Connes and strong Connes spectra.</p> 2020-05-06T00:00:00+02:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## An interpolation of Ohno's relation to complex functions 2020-08-09T03:21:45+02:00 Minoru Hirose Hideki Murahara Tomokazu Onozuka <p>Ohno's relation is a well known formula among multiple zeta values.

This is a step toward understanding when a Bratteli-Vershik system can be essentially faithfully represented by means of a natural coding as a subshift on a finite alphabet.</p> 2020-05-06T00:00:00+02:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Spectral triples for higher-rank graph $C^*$-algebras 2020-08-09T03:21:24+02:00 Carla Farsi Elizabeth Gillaspy Antoine Julien Sooran Kang Judith Packer <p>In this note, we present a new way to associate a spectral triple to the noncommutative $C^*$-algebra $C^*(\Lambda )$ of a strongly connected finite higher-rank graph Λ. Our spectral triple builds on an approach used by Consani and Marcolli to construct spectral triples for Cuntz-Krieger algebras. We prove that our spectral triples are intimately connected to the wavelet decomposition of the infinite path space of Λ which was introduced by Farsi, Gillaspy, Kang, and Packer in 2015. In particular, we prove that the wavelet decomposition of Farsi et al.&nbsp;describes the eigenspaces of the Dirac operator of our spectral triple. The paper concludes by discussing other properties of the spectral triple, namely, θ-summability and Brownian motion.</p> 2020-05-06T00:00:00+02:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## On the convergence of iterates of convolution operators in Banach spaces 2020-08-09T03:21:14+02:00 Heybetkulu Mustafayev <p>Let $G$ be a locally compact abelian group and let $M(G)$ be the measure algebra of $G$. A measure $\mu \in M(G)$ is said to be power bounded if $\sup _{n\geq 0}\lVert \mu ^{n} \rVert _{1}&lt;\infty $. Let $\mathbf {T} = \{ T_{g}:g\in G\}$ be a bounded and continuous representation of $G$ on a Banach space $X$. For any $\mu \in M(G)$, there is a bounded linear operator on $X$ associated with µ, denoted by $\mathbf {T}_{\mu }$, which integrates $T_{g}$ with respect to µ. In this paper, we study norm and almost everywhere behavior of the sequences $\{ \mathbf {T}_{\mu }^{n}x\}$ $(x\in X)$ in the case when µ is power bounded. Some related problems are also discussed.</p> 2020-05-06T00:00:00+02:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Generalized adjoints and applications to composition operators 2020-08-09T03:21:04+02:00 Geraldo Botelho Leodan A. Torres <p>We generalize the classical notion of adjoint of a linear operator and the Aron-Schottenloher notion of adjoint of a homogeneous polynomial. The general (nonlinear) notion is shown to enjoy several properties enjoyed by the classical (linear) ones, nevertheless new interesting phenomena arise in the nonlinear theory. The proofs are not always simple adaptations of the linear cases, actually nonlinear arguments are often required. Applications of the generalized adjoints to Lindström-Schlüchtermann type theorems for composition operators are provided.</p> 2020-05-06T00:00:00+02:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Some remarks on $\mathrm{K}_0$ of noncommutative tori 2020-08-09T03:20:58+02:00 Sayan Chakraborty <p>Using Rieffel's construction of projective modules over higher dimensional noncommutative tori, we construct projective modules over some continuous field of C*-algebras whose fibres are noncommutative tori.
