MacMahon’s definition of self-inverse composition is extended ton-colour self-inverse composition. This introduces four new sequences which satisfy the same recurrence relation with different initial conditions like the famous Fibonacci and Lucas sequences. For these new sequences explicit formulas, recurrence relations, generating functions and a summation formula are obtained. Two new binomial identities with combinatorial meaning are also given.

It is shown that ifA is a regular local ring andI is a maximally differential ideal inA, thenI is generated by anA-sequence.

One describes, using a detailed analysis of Atiyah-Hirzebruch spectral sequence, the tuples of cohomology classes on a compact, complex manifold, corresponding to the Chern classes of a complex vector bundle of stable rank. This classification becomes more effective on generalized flag manifolds, where the Lie algebra formalism and concrete integrability conditions describe in constructive terms the Chern classes of a vector bundle.

In this paper, it is shown that some of the results of torus actions on Poincaré duality spaces, Borel’s dimension formula and topological splitting principle to local weights, hold if ‘torus’ is replaced by ‘pro-torus’.

The characteristic function has been an important tool for studying completely non-unitary contractions on Hilbert spaces. In this note, we consider completely non-coisometric contractive tuples of commuting operators on a Hilbert space H. We show that the characteristic function, which is now an operator-valued analytic function on the open Euclidean unit ball in ℂn, is a complete unitary invariant for such a tuple. We prove that the characteristic function satisfies a natural transformation law under biholomorphic mappings of the unit ball. We also characterize all operator-valued analytic functions which arise as characteristic functions of pure commuting contractive tuples.

In this article we obtain some positive results about the existence of a common nontrivial invariant subspace forN-tuples of not necessarily commuting operators on Banach spaces with a Schauder basis. The concept of joint quasinilpotence plays a basic role. Our results complement recent work by Kosiek  and Ptak .

In this paper, we considered the problem of finding the upper bound Hausdorff matrix operator from sequence spaces lp(v) (ord(v, p)) intolp(w) (ord(w, p)). Also we considered the upper bound problem for matrix operators fromd(v, 1) intod(w, 1), and matrix operators frome(w, ∞) intoe(v, ∞), and deduce upper bound for Cesaro, Copson and Hilbert matrix operators, which are recently considered in  and  and similar to that in .

We define the Hermite-Sobolev spaces naturally associated to the harmonic oscillatorH = −δ+|x|2. Structural properties, relations with the classical Sobolev spaces, boundedness of operators and almost everywhere convergence of solutions of the Schrodinger equation are also considered.

The recently suggested embedding method to solve linear boundary value problems is here extended to cover situations where the domain of interest is unbounded or multiply connected. The extensions involve the use of complete sets of exterior and interior eigenfunctions on canonical domains. Applications to typical boundary value problems for Laplace’s equation, the Oseen equations and the biharmonic equation are given as examples.
