In general, for a Markov process which does not have an invariant
measure, it is possible to realize a stationary Markov process
with the same transition probability by extending the probability
space and by adding new paths which are born at random times.
The distribution (which may not be a probability measure)
is called a Kuznetsov measure . By using this measure
we can construct a stationary Markov particle system, which
is called an equilibrium process with immigration .
This particle system can be decomposed as a sum of the original
part and the immigration part (see [2]). In the present paper,
we consider an absorbing stable motion on a half space
$H$, i.e., a time-changed absorbing Brownian motion on $H$
by an increasing strictly stable process. We first give the
martingale characterization of the particle system. Secondly,
we discuss the finiteness of the number of particles near
the boundary of the immigration part. (cf. [2], [3], [4].)

Barchini, Kable, and Zierau constructed a number of conformally
invariant systems of differential operators associated to
parabolic subalgebras of Heisenberg type. When they constructed
such systems of operators, two constants, which play a role
for the construction, were defined as the constants of proportionality
between two expressions. In this paper we give concrete and
uniform expressions for these constants. To do so we introduce
a new constant inspired by a formula on the Dynkin index of
a finite dimensional representation of a complex simple Lie
algebra.

For a minimal diffusion process on $(a,b)$, any possible extension
of it to a standard process on $[a,b]$ is characterized by
the characteristic measures of excursions away from the boundary
points $a$ and $b$. The generator of the extension is proved

In this paper, we introduce the notion of a connected sum
$K_{1} \#^{Z} K_{2}$ of simplicial complexes $K_{1}$ and $K_{2}$,
as well as define a strong connected sum. Geometrically,
the connected sum is motivated by Lerman's symplectic cut
applied to a toric orbifold, and algebraically, it is motivated
by the connected sum of rings introduced by Ananthnarayan--Avramov--Moore
[1]. We show that the Stanley--Reisner ring of a connected
sum $K_{1} \#^{Z} K_{2}$ is the connected sum of the Stanley--Reisner
rings of $K_{1}$ and $K_{2}$ along the Stanley--Reisner ring
of $K_{1} \cap K_{2}$. The strong connected sum $K_{1} \#^{Z}
K_{2}$ is defined in such a way that when $K_{1}$, $K_{2}$
are Gorenstein, and $Z$ is a suitable subset of $K_{1} \cap
K_{2}$, then the Stanley--Reisner ring of $K_{1} \#^{Z} K_{2}$
is Gorenstein, by work appearing in [1]. We also show that
cutting a simple polytope by a generic hyperplane produces
strong connected sums. These algebraic computations can be
interpreted in terms of the equivariant cohomology of moment
angle complexes and toric orbifolds.

The Wirtinger integral is the uniformization to the upper
half plane $H$ of the hypergeometric function defined on the
complex projective line $\mathbb{P}^{1}$. In [5] we established
the transformation formulas of the Wirtinger integral for
the linear fractional transformations $\tau\to\tau+2$ and
$\tau\to -1/\tau$ with the aide of the theory of theta functions.
As a corollary we obtain the transformation formulas of the
Wirtinger integral for the linear fractional transformations
$\tau\to\tau+2$ and $\tau\to \tau/(-2\tau+1)$ which are identified
with generators of the principal congruence subgroup $\varGamma(2)$
modulo center. These formulas correspond to the monodromy
matrices of the hypergeometric function for generators of
the fundamental group of $\mathbb{P}^{1}$ minus three points.
The purpose of this paper is to generalize this result, that
is, we establish the transformation formula of the Wirtinger
integral for a general element $\left(\begin{smallmatrix}
a & b \\ c & d \end{smallmatrix}\right)$
of $\varGamma(2)$, which corresponds to a general monodromy
matrix of the hypergeometric function.

In this paper we consider a symplectic basis of the first
cohomology group and the sigma functions for algebraic curves
expressed by a canonical form using a finite sequence $(a_{1},
\ldots, a_{t})$ of positive integers whose greatest common
divisor is equal to one (Miura [13]). The idea is to express
a non-singular algebraic curve by affine equations of $t$
variables whose orders at infinity are $(a_{1}, \ldots, a_{t})$.
We construct a symplectic basis of the first cohomology group
and the sigma functions for telescopic curves, i.e., the curves
such that the number of defining equations is exactly $t-1$
in the Miura canonical form. The largest class of curves for
which such construction has been obtained thus far is $(n,
s)$-curves ([4] [15]), which are telescopic because they are
expressed in the Miura canonical form with $t=2$, $a_{1}=n$,
and $a_{2}=s$, and the number of defining equations is one.

Given a unicuspidal rational curve $C \subset \mathbb{P}^{2}$
with singular point $P$, we study the unique pencil $\Lambda_{C}$
on $\mathbb{P}^{2}$ satisfying $C \in \Lambda_{C}$ and $\mathrm{Bs}(\Lambda_{C})=\{P\}$.

Wavelet coefficients of a process have arguments shift and
scale. It can thus be viewed as a time series along shift
for each scale. We have considered in the previous study general
wavelet coefficient domain estimators and revealed a localization
property with respect to shift. In this paper, we formulate
the localization property with respect to scale, which is
more difficult than that of shift. Two factors that govern
the decay rate of cross-scale covariance are indicated. The
factors are both functions of vanishing moments and scale-lags.
The localization property is then successfully applied to
formulate limiting variance in the central limit theorem associated
with Hurst index estimation problem of fractional Brownian
motion. Especially, we can find the optimal upper bound $J$
of scales $1, \ldots, J$ used in the estimation to be $J =
5$ by an evaluation of the diagonal component of the limiting
variance, in virtue of the scale localization property.

For any weight vector $\chi$ of positive
integers, the weighted projective space $\mathbb{P}(\chi)$
is a projective toric variety, and has orbifold singularities
in every case other than standard projective space. Our principal
aim is to study the algebraic topology of $\mathbb{P}(\chi)$,
paying particular attention to its localisation at individual
primes $p$. We identify certain $p$-primary weight vectors
$\pi$ for which $\mathbb{P}(\pi)$ is homeomorphic to an iterated
Thom space, and discuss how any weighted projective space
may be reassembled from its $p$-primary parts. The resulting
Thom isomorphisms provide an alternative to Kawasaki's calculation
of the cohomology ring of $\mathbb{P}(\chi)$, and allow us
to recover Al Amrani's extension to complex $K$-theory. Our
methods generalise to arbitrary complex oriented cohomology
algebras and their dual homology coalgebras, as we demonstrate
for complex cobordism theory, the universal example. In particular,
we describe a fundamental class that belongs to the complex
bordism coalgebra of $\mathbb{P}(\chi)$, and may be interpreted
as a resolution of singularities.

The degenerate affine and affine BMW algebras arise naturally
in the context of Schur--Weyl duality for orthogonal and symplectic
Lie algebras and quantum groups, respectively. Cyclotomic
BMW algebras, affine Hecke algebras, cyclotomic Hecke algebras,
and their degenerate versions are quotients. In this paper
the theory is unified by treating the orthogonal and symplectic
cases simultaneously; we make an exact parallel between the
degenerate affine and affine cases via a new algebra which
takes the role of the affine braid group for the degenerate
setting. A main result of this paper is an identification of
the centers of the affine and degenerate affine BMW algebras
in terms of rings of symmetric functions which satisfy a ``cancellation
property'' or ``wheel condition'' (in the degenerate case,
a reformulation of a result of Nazarov). Miraculously, these
same rings also arise in Schubert calculus, as the cohomology
and K-theory of isotropic Grassmannians and symplectic loop
Grassmannians. We also establish new intertwiner-like identities
which, when projected to the center, produce the recursions
for central elements given previously by Nazarov for degenerate
affine BMW algebras, and by Beliakova--Blanchet for affine
BMW algebras.

space $\mathbb{R}^{n+2}$. Our main result states that every
complete parallel submanifold of $\mathrm{G}^{+}_{2}(\mathbb{R}^{n+2})$,

submanifold as a symmetric submanifold. The analogous result
holds if the ambient space is the Riemannian product of two
Euclidean spheres of equal curvature or the non-compact dual
of one of the previously considered spaces. We also give a
characterization of parallel submanifolds with curvature isotropic
tangent spaces of maximal possible dimension in any symmetric

$\mathcal{L}$ be the manifold of all (unparametrized) complete
oriented geodesics of $M$, endowed with its canonical pseudo-Riemannian

A smooth curve in $\mathcal{L}$ determines a ruled surface
in $M$. We characterize the ruled surfaces of $M$ associated
with the magnetic geodesics of $\mathcal{L}$, that is, those
curves $\sigma$ in $\mathcal{L}$ satisfying $\nabla_{\dot{\sigma}}\dot{\sigma}=J\dot{\sigma}$.
More precisely: a time-like (space-like) magnetic geodesic
determines the ruled surface in $M$ given by the binormal
vector field along a helix with positive (negative) torsion.
Null magnetic geodesics describe cones, cylinders or, in the
hyperbolic case, also cones with vertices at infinity. This
provides a relationship between the geometries of $\mathcal{L}$
and $M$.

structure on a topological toric manifold of dimension $2n$
is integrable. We also show that such a manifold is weakly
$(\mathbb{C}^{*})^{n}$-equivariantly isomorphic to a toric
manifold.

The aim of this paper is to give families of Pisot and Salem
elements $\beta$ in $\mathbb{F}_{q}((x^{-1}))$ with the curious
property that the $\beta$-expansion of any rational series
in the unit disk $D(0,1)$ is purely periodic. In contrast,
the only known family of reals with the last property are
quadratic Pisot numbers $\beta>1$ that satisfy $\beta^{2}
= n\beta+1$ for some integer $n \geq 1$.

Akiyama et al. [2] proved an asymptotic formula for the distribution
of CNS polynomials with fixed constant term. The objective
of the present paper is to improve that result by providing
an error term too.

We show that, as in de Rham cohomology over the complex numbers,
the value of the entropy of an automorphism of the surface
over a finite field $\mathbb{F}_{q}$ is taken on the span
of the Néron--Severi group inside of $\ell$-adic cohomology.

Let $N \triangleleft G$ where $G$ is a finite group and let
$B$ be a $p$-block of $G$, where $p$ is a prime. A Brauer
character $\psi \in \mathop{\mathrm{IBr}}_{p}(B)$ is said to
be of relative height zero with respect to $N$ provided that
the height of $\psi$ is equal to that of an irreducible constituent
of $\psi_{N}$. Now assume $G$ is $p$-solvable. In this paper,
we count the number of relative height zero irreducible Brauer
characters of $B$ with respect to $N$ that lie over any given
$\varphi \in \mathop{\mathrm{IBr}}_{p}(N)$. As a consequence,
we show that if $D$ is a defect group of $B$ and $\hat{B}$
is the unique $p$-block of $NN_{G}(D)$ with defect group $D$
such that $\hat{B}^{G} = B$, then $B$ and $\hat{B}$ have equal
numbers of relative height zero irreducible Brauer characters
with respect to $N$.

For all but finitely many compact orientable surfaces, we
show that any superinjective map from the complex of separating
curves into itself is induced by an element of the extended
mapping class group. We apply this result to proving that
any finite index subgroup of the Johnson kernel is co-Hopfian.
Analogous properties are shown for the Torelli complex and
the Torelli group.

A finitely generated torsion free nilpotent group is called
an $\mathrsfs{F}$-group. To each $\mathrsfs{F}$-group $\Gamma$
there is associated a connected, simply connected nilpotent
Lie group $G_{\Gamma}$. Let TUF be the class of all $\mathrsfs{F}$-group
$\Gamma$ such that $G_{\Gamma}$ is totally unimodular. A group
in TUF is called TUF-group. In this paper, we are interested
in finding non-zero Euler characteristic on the class TUF
and therefore, on TUFF, the class of groups $K$ having a subgroup
$\Gamma$ of finite index in TUF. An immediate consequence
we obtain that any two isomorphic finite index subgroups of
a TUFF-group have the same index. As applications, we give
two results, the first is a generalization of Belegradek's
result, in which we prove that every TUFF-group is co-hopfian.
The second is a known result due to G.C. Smith, asserting
that every TUFF-group is not compressible.
