There are 4 new papers this time, from Bartels-Lueck-Reich,
Davis-Dula-Mahowald, and Vespa (2). In adddition, there are 3 updates
of papers recently posted to Hopf; I will just list these rather than
including the abstracts again. They are

New papers appearing on hopf between 1/1/07 and 2/3/07

Title:
The K-theoretic Farrell-Jones Conjecture for hyperbolic groups
Authors:
Arthur Bartels, Wolfgang Lueck, Holger Reich
Abstract:
We prove the K-theoretic Farrell-Jones Conjecture for hyperbolic groups
with (twisted) coefficients in any associative ring with unit.

Immersions of RP^{2^e-1}
Donald M. Davis, Giora Dula, and Mark Mahowald
Abstract:
We prove that RP^{2^e-1} can be immersed in R^{2^{e+1}-e-8}
provided e>6. If e>13, this is 2 better than previously known
immersions. Our method is primarily an induction on geometric
dimension, incorporating also sections obtained from the
Radon-Hurwitz theorem.

Generic representations of orthogonal groups: the functor category Fquad
Christine Vespa
In this paper, we define the functor category Fquad associated to vector
spaces over the field with two elements equipped with a quadratic
form. We show the existence of a fully-faithful, exact functor from F
to Fquad, which preserves simple objects, where F is the category of
functors from the category of finite dimensional vector spaces over the
field with two elements to the category of all vector spaces. We define
a subcategory Fquad, which is equivalent to the product of the
categories of modules over the orthogonal groups; the inclusion is a
fully-faithful functor which preserves simple objects.

Generic representations of orthogonal groups: the mixed functors
Christine Vespa
In previous work, we defined the category of functors Fquad, associated
to vector spaces over the field with two elements equipped with a
nondegenerate quadratic form. In this paper, we define a special family
of objects in the category Fquad, named the mixed functors. We give the
complete decompositions of two elements of this family that give rise to
two new infinite families of simple objects in the category Fquad.

There is a web form for submitting papers to Hopf on this site as well.
You should submit an abstract as well. Clarence has explicit
instructions for the form of this abstract: see
http://hopf.math.purdue.edu/new-html/submissions.html
In particular, your abstract is meant to be read by humans, so should be
as readable as possible. I reserve the right to edit unreadable
abstracts. You should then e-mail Clarence at wilker at math.purdue.edu
telling him what you have uploaded.

There is an algebraic topology section in this archive. The most useful
way to browse it or submit papers to it is via the front end developed
by Greg Kuperberg:
