In this paper explicit expressions ofm + 1 idempotents in the ring$$R = F_q [X]/(X^{2^m } - 1)$$ are given. Cyclic codes of length 2^{m} over the finite fieldF_{q}, of odd characteristic, are defined in terms of their generator polynomials. The exact minimum distance and the dimension of the codes are obtained.

Unitary tridiagonalization inM(4, ⫳)
A question of interest in linear algebra is whether alln xn complex matrices can be unitarily tridiagonalized. The answer for alln ≠ 4 (affirmative or negative) has been known for a while, whereas the casen = 4 seems to have remained open. In this paper we settle then = 4 case in the affirmative. Some machinery from complex algebraic geometry needs to be used.

On Ricci curvature ofC-totally real submanifolds in Sasakian space forms
LetM^{n} be a Riemanniann-manifold. Denote byS(p) and Ric(p) the Ricci tensor and the maximum Ricci curvature onM_{n}, respectively. In this paper we prove that everyC-totally real submanifold of a Sasakian space formM^{2m+1}(c) satisfies$$S \leqslant (\frac{{(n - 1)(c + 3)}}{4}) + \frac{{n^2 }}{4}H^2 )g$$, whereH^{2} andg are the square mean curvature function and metric tensor onM^{n}, respectively. The equality holds identically if and only if eitherM^{n} is totally geodesic submanifold or n = 2 andM^{n} is totally umbilical submanifold. Also we show that if aC-totally real submanifoldM^{n} ofM^{2n+1} (c) satisfies$$\overline {Ric} = \frac{{(n - 1)(c + 3)}}{4} + \frac{{n^2 }}{4}H^2 $$ identically, then it is minimal.

Given a smooth functionK < 0 we prove a result by Berger, Kazhdan and others that in every conformal class there exists a metric which attains this function as its Gaussian curvature for a compact Riemann surface of genusg > 1. We do so by minimizing an appropriate functional using elementary analysis. In particular forK a negative constant, this provides an elementary proof of the uniformization theorem for compact Riemann surfaces of genusg > 1.

Multiwavelet packets and frame packets ofL^{2}(ℝ^{d})
The orthonormal basis generated by a wavelet ofL^{2}(ℝ) has poor frequency localization. To overcome this disadvantage Coifman, Meyer, and Wickerhauser constructed wavelet packets. We extend this concept to the higher dimensions where we consider arbitrary dilation matrices. The resulting basis ofL^{2}(ℝ^{d}) is called the multiwavelet packet basis. The concept of wavelet frame packet is also generalized to this setting. Further, we show how to construct various orthonormal bases ofL^{2}(ℝ^{d}) from the multiwavelet packets.

Nonlinear elliptic differential equations with multivalued nonlinearities
Antonella Fiacca Nikolaos Matzakos Nikolaos S Papageorgiou Raffaella Servadei
In this paper we study nonlinear elliptic boundary value problems with monotone and nonmonotone multivalued nonlinearities. First we consider the case of monotone nonlinearities. In the first result we assume that the multivalued nonlinearity is defined on all ℝ. Assuming the existence of an upper and of a lower solution, we prove the existence of a solution between them. Also for a special version of the problem, we prove the existence of extremal solutions in the order interval formed by the upper and lower solutions. Then we drop the requirement that the monotone nonlinearity is defined on all of ℝ. This case is important because it covers variational inequalities. Using the theory of operators of monotone type we show that the problem has a solution. Finally in the last part we consider an eigenvalue problem with a nonmonotone multivalued nonlinearity. Using the critical point theory for nonsmooth locally Lipschitz functionals we prove the existence of at least two nontrivial solutions (multiplicity theorem).
