We study lightlike hypersurfaces M of an indefinite Kaehler manifold M̅ of quasi-constant curvature subject to the condition that the characteristic vector field ζ of M̅ is tangent to M. First, we provide a new result for such a lightlike hypersurface. Next, we investigate such a lightlike hypersurface M of M̅ such that (1) the screen distribution S(TM) is totally umbilical or (2) M is screen conformal.

[This article has been retracted by the journal ; see Retractation notice https://doi.org/10.2478/cm-2019-0014]A QTAG-module M is an α-module, where α is a limit ordinal, if M/Hβ (M) is totally projective for every ordinal β < α. In the present paper α-modules are studied with the help of α-pure submodules, α-basic submodules, and α-large submodules. It is found that an α-closed α-module is an α-injective. For any ordinal ω ≤ α ≤ ω 1 we prove that an α-large submodule L of an ω 1-module M is summable if and only if M is summable.

We compute the Hilbert series of the complex Grassmannian using invariant theoretic methods. This is made possible by showing that the denominator of the q-Hilbert series is a Vandermonde-like determinant. We show that the h-polynomial of the Grassmannian coincides with the k-Narayana polynomial. A simplified formula for the h-polynomial of Schubert varieties is given. Finally, we use a generalized hypergeometric Euler transform to find simplified formulae for the k-Narayana numbers, i.e. the h-polynomial of the Grassmannian.

Let R be a prime ring with center Z(R) and I a nonzero right ideal of R. Suppose that R admits a generalized reverse derivation (F, d) such that d(Z(R)) ≠ 0. In the present paper, we shall prove that if one of the following conditions holds: (i) F (xy) ± xy ∈ Z(R) (ii) F ([x, y]) ± [F (x), y] ∈ Z(R) (iii) F ([x, y]) ± [F (x), F (y)] ∈ Z(R) (iv) F (x ο y) ± F (x) ο F (y) ∈ Z(R) (v) [F (x), y] ± [x, F (y)] ∈ Z(R) (vi) F (x) ο y ± x ο F (y) ∈ Z(R) for all x, y ∈ I, then R is commutative.

In the paper we characterize the two-dimensional generalized Berwald manifolds in terms of the classical setting of Finsler surfaces (Berwald frame, main scalar etc.). As an application we prove that if a Lands-berg surface is a generalized Berwald manifold then it must be a Berwald manifold. Especially, we reproduce Wagner’s original result in honor of the 75th anniversary of publishing his pioneering work about generalized Berwald manifolds.

Let P be a poset and d be a derivation on P. In this research, the notion of generalized d-derivation on partially ordered sets is presented and studied. Several characterization theorems on generalized d-derivations are introduced. The properties of the fixed points based on the generalized d-derivations are examined. The properties of ideals and operations related with generalized d-derivations are studied.
