We show that continuous group homomorphisms between unitary groups of unital C*-algebras induce maps between spaces of continuous real-valued affine functions on the trace simplices. Under certain -theoretic regularity conditions, these maps can be seen to commute with the pairing between and traces. If the homomorphism is contractive and sends the unit circle to the unit circle, the map between spaces of continuous real-valued affine functions can further be shown to be unital and positive (up to a minus sign).

]]>The algebraic mapping torus of a group with an automorphism is the HNN-extension of in which conjugation by the stable letter performs . We classify the Dehn functions of in terms of for a number of right-angled Artin groups (RAAGs) , including all -generator RAAGs and for all .

]]>Given a group and an integer , we consider the family of all virtually abelian subgroups of of at most . In this article, we prove that for each the Bredon cohomology, with respect to the family , of a free abelian group with is nontrivial in dimension ; this answers a question of Corob Cook et al. (Homology Homotopy Appl. 19(2) (2017), 83–87, Question 2.7). As an application, we compute the minimal dimension of a classifying space for the family for braid groups, right-angled Artin groups, and graphs of groups whose vertex groups are infinite finitely generated virtually abelian groups, for all . The main tools that we use are the Mayer–Vietoris sequence for Bredon cohomology, Bass–Serre theory, and the Lück–Weiermann construction.

]]>We prove new results concerning the additive Galois module structure of wildly ramified non-abelian extensions with Galois group isomorphic to , , , and dihedral groups of order for certain prime powers . In particular, when is a Galois extension with Galois group isomorphic to , or , we give necessary and sufficient conditions for the ring of integers to be free over its associated order in the rational group algebra .

]]>In this paper, we prove Kato’s main conjecture for modular forms for primes of potentially ordinary reduction under certain hypotheses on the modular form.

]]>In this article, we explore the problem of determining isomorphisms between the twisted complex group algebras of finite -groups. This problem bears similarity to the classical group algebra isomorphism problem and has been recently examined by Margolis-Schnabel. Our focus lies on a specific invariant, referred to as the generalized corank, which relates to the twisted complex group algebra isomorphism problem. We provide a solution for non-abelian -groups with generalized corank at most three.

Under certain conditions on , mild when residue characteristic is not , we explicitly construct the minimal regular model with normal crossings of . In the same setting we determine a basis of integral differentials of , that is an -basis for the global sections of the relative dualising sheaf .

]]>In this note, we present examples of non-quasi-geodesic metric spaces which are hyperbolic (i.e., satisfying Gromov’s -point condition) while the intersection of any two metric balls therein does not either ‘look like’ a ball or has uniformly bounded eccentricity. This answers an open question posed by Chatterji and Niblo.
