Limit distributions of expanding translates of certain orbits on homogeneous spaces
LetL be a Lie group and λ a lattice inL. SupposeG is a non-compact simple Lie group realized as a Lie subgroup ofL and$$\overline {GA} = L$$. LetaεG be such that Ada is semisimple and not contained in a compact subgroup of Aut(Lie(G)). Consider the expanding horospherical subgroup ofG associated toa defined as U^{+} ={gεG:a^{−n} ga^{n}} →e asn → ∞. Let Ω be a non-empty open subset ofU^{+} andn_{i} → ∞ be any sequence. It is showed that$$\overline { \cup _{i = 1}^\infty a^n \Omega \Lambda } = L$$. A stronger measure theoretic formulation of this result is also obtained. Among other applications of the above result, we describeG-equivariant topological factors of L/gl × G/P, where the real rank ofG is greater than 1,P is a parabolic subgroup ofG andG acts diagonally. We also describe equivariant topological factors of unipotent flows on finite volume homogeneous spaces of Lie groups.

In this paper we extend a classical result due to Cauchy and its improvement due to Datt and Govil to a class of lacunary type polynomials.

Quasi-parabolic Siegel formula
The result of Siegel that the Tamagawa number ofSL_{r} over a function field is 1 has an expression purely in terms of vector bundles on a curve, which is known as the Siegel formula. We prove an analogous formula for vector bundles with quasi-parabolic structures. This formula can be used to calculate the Betti numbers of the moduli of parabolic vector bundles using the Weil conjuctures

A note on multidimensional modified fractional calculus operators
In the present investigation some new formulas giving the images under multidimensional modified fractional operators of the celebratedH-function of Fox [Trans. Am. Math. Soc.98 (1961) 395–429] are obtained. Special cases are briefly pointed out and the results are also studied on general spaces of functionsM_{γ}(R_{+}^{n})

Changing the variable in convolution of distributions
In this paper the author has extended the concept of changing the variables in distributions to the convolution of distributions. For an infinitely differentiable functionh(x), he has first defined the convolution of two distributions f(h(x)) and g(h(x)) and then proved some of its properties. Finally, he has applied his results to the fractional integral and fractional differential operators

Wave propagation in a micropolar generalized thermoelastic body with stretch
In the present investigation, we discuss two different problems namely
Rayleigh-Lamb problem in micropolar generalized thermoelastic layer with stretch and
Rayleigh wave in a micropolar generalized thermoelastic half-space with stretch. The frequency and wave velocity equations for symmetric and anti-symmetric vibrations are obtained for the first problem. The frequency equation has also been derived for the second problem. The special cases of the above said problems of micropolar generalized thermoelasticity with stretch for Green-Lindsay and Lord-Shulman theory have been discussed in detail. Results of these analysis reduce to those without thermal and stretch effects

New families of graceful banana trees
Vasanti N Bhat-Nayak Ujwala N Deshmukh
Consider a family of stars. Take a new vertex. Join one end-vertex of each star to this new vertex. The tree so obtained is known as abanana tree. It is proved that the banana trees corresponding to the family of stars
(K_{1,1}, K_{1,2},…, K_{1,t −1}, (α + l) K_{1,t}, K_{1,t + 1}, …, K_{1,n}), α ⩽ 0
(2K_{1,1}, 2K_{1,2},…, 2K_{1,t− 1}, (α + 2)K_{1,t}, 2K_{1,t + 1, …}, 2K_{1,n}), 0 ⩽ α <t and
(3K_{1,t}, 3K_{1,2}, …, 3K_{1,n}) are graceful.
