## On non-immersibility of RP10 to R15

In 1965, P.F. Baum and W. Browder proved that RP10 cannot be immersed to R15. Going alternative way, we investigate this problem using U. Koschorke’ singularity approach. In this paper, we simplify and analyze the corresponding obstruction group.

We prove the following: (1) the existence, for every integer *n* ≥ 4, of a noncompact
smooth *n*-dimensional topological manifold whose diffeomorphism group contains an isomorphic
copy of every finitely presented group; (2) a finiteness theorem for finite simple subgroups of
diffeomorphism groups of compact smooth topological manifolds.

A mathematically correct description is presented on the interrelations between the dynamics of divergence free vector fields on an oriented 3-dimensional manifold M and the dynamics of Hamiltonian systems. It is shown that for a given divergence free vector field Xwith a global cross-section there exist some 4-dimensional symplectic manifold M̃⊃M and a smooth Hamilton function H:M̃→R such that for some c∈R one gets M={H=c}and the Hamiltonian vector field XH restricted on this level coincides with X. For divergence free vector fields with singular points such an extension is impossible but the existence of local cross-section allows one to reduce the dynamics to the study of symplectic diffeomorphisms in some sub-domains of M. We also consider the case of a divergence free vector field X with a smooth integral having only finite number of critical levels. It is shown that such a noncritical level is always a 2-torus and restriction of X on it possesses a smooth invariant 2-form. The linearization of the flow on such a torus (i.e. the reduction to the constant vector field) is not always possible in contrast to the case of an integrable Hamiltonian system but in the analytic case (M and X are real analytic), due to the Kolmogorov theorem, such a linearization is possible for tori with Diophantine rotation numbers.

Let k be a field of characteristic zero, let G be a connected reductive algebraic group over k and let g be its Lie algebra. Let k(G), respectively, k(g), be the field of k- rational functions on G, respectively, g. The conjugation action of G on itself induces the adjoint action of G on g. We investigate the question whether or not the field extensions k(G)/k(G)^G and k(g)/k(g)^G are purely transcendental. We show that the answer is the same for k(G)/k(G)^G and k(g)/k(g)^G, and reduce the problem to the case where G is simple. For simple groups we show that the answer is positive if G is split of type A_n or C_n, and negative for groups of other types, except possibly G_2. A key ingredient in the proof of the negative result is a recent formula for the unramified Brauer group of a homogeneous space with connected stabilizers. As a byproduct of our investigation we give an affirmative answer to a question of Grothendieck about the existence of a rational section of the categorical quotient morphism for the conjugating action of G on itself.

Let G be a connected semisimple algebraic group over an algebraically closed field k. In 1965 Steinberg proved that if G is simply connected, then in G there exists a closed irreducible cross-section of the set of closures of regular conjugacy classes. We prove that in arbitrary G such a cross-section exists if and only if the universal covering isogeny Ĝ → G is bijective; this answers Grothendieck's question cited in the epigraph. In particular, for char k = 0, the converse to Steinberg's theorem holds. The existence of a cross-section in G implies, at least for char k = 0, that the algebra k[G]G of class functions on G is generated by rk G elements. We describe, for arbitrary G, a minimal generating set of k[G]G and that of the representation ring of G and answer two Grothendieck's questions on constructing generating sets of k[G]G. We prove the existence of a rational (i.e., local) section of the quotient morphism for arbitrary G and the existence of a rational cross-section in G (for char k = 0, this has been proved earlier); this answers the other question cited in the epigraph. We also prove that the existence of a rational section is equivalent to the existence of a rational W-equivariant map T- - - >G/T where T is a maximal torus of G and W the Weyl group.

This proceedings publication is a compilation of selected contributions from the “Third International Conference on the Dynamics of Information Systems” which took place at the University of Florida, Gainesville, February 16–18, 2011. The purpose of this conference was to bring together scientists and engineers from industry, government, and academia in order to exchange new discoveries and results in a broad range of topics relevant to the theory and practice of dynamics of information systems. Dynamics of Information Systems: Mathematical Foundation presents state-of-the art research and is intended for graduate students and researchers interested in some of the most recent discoveries in information theory and dynamical systems. Scientists in other disciplines may also benefit from the applications of new developments to their own area of study.
