Let [ · ] be the fioor function. In this paper, we show that when 1 < c < 37/36, then every sufficiently large positive integer *N* can be represented in the form

where p_{1}, p_{2}, p_{3} are primes close to squares.

In this article, we study a family of subgraphs of the Farey graph, denoted as *ℱ _{N}
* for every

*N*∈ ℕ. We show that

*ℱ*is connected if and only if

_{N}*N*is either equal to one or a prime power. We introduce a class of continued fractions referred to as

*ℱ*-continued fractions for each

_{N}*N*> 1. We establish a relation between

*ℱ*-continued fractions and certain paths from infinity in the graph

_{N}*ℱ*. Using this correspondence, we discuss the existence and uniqueness of

_{N}*ℱ*-continued fraction expansions of real numbers.

_{N}Given a finite point set *P* in the plane, a subset S⊆P is called an *island* in *P* if conv(S) ⋂ *P = S*. We say that S ⊂ *P* is a *visible island* if the points in S are pairwise visible and S is an island in P. The famous Big-line Big-clique Conjecture states that for any *k ≥* 3 and *l* ≥ 4, there is an integer *n = n(k, l*), such that every finite set of at least *n* points in the plane contains *l* collinear points or *k* pairwise visible points. In this paper, we show that this conjecture is false for visible islands, by replacing each point in a Horton set by a triple of collinear points. Hence, there are arbitrarily large finite point sets in the plane with no 4 collinear members and no visible island of size 13.

In this article, we define the notion of a generalized open book of a *n*-manifold over the *k*−sphere *S ^{k}
*,

*k < n*. We discuss Lefschetz open book embeddings of Lefschetz open books of closed oriented 4-manifolds into the trivial open book over

*S*of the 7−sphere

^{2}*S*. If X is the double of a bounded achiral Lefschetz fibration over

^{7}*D*, then

^{2}*X*naturally admits a Lefschetz open book given by the bounded achiral Lefschetz fibration. We show that this natural Lefschetz open book of

*X*admits a Lefschetz open book embedding into the trivial open book over

*S*of the 7−sphere

^{2}*S*.

^{7}We show that if a non-degenerate PL map *f* : *N* → *M* lifts to a topological embedding in *N ^{n}
* →

*M*≥

^{m}, m*n*, lifts to a topological embedding in

This short note deals with polynomial interpolation of complex numbers verifying a Lipschitz condition, performed on consecutive points of a given sequence in the plane. We are interested in those sequences which provide a bound of the error at the first uninterpolated point, depending only on its distance to the last interpolated one.

For a lattice *L* of finite length *n*, let RCSub(*L*) be the collection consisting of the empty set and those sublattices of *L* that are closed under taking relative complements. That is, a subset *X* of *L* belongs to RCSub(*L*) if and only if *X* is join-closed, meet-closed, and whenever {*a, x, b*} *⊆ S, y* ∈ *L, x* ∧ *y* = *a*, and *x* ∨ *y* = *b*, then *y* ∈ *S*. We prove that (1) the poset RCSub(*L*) with respect to set inclusion is lattice of length *n* + 1, (2) if RCSub(*L*) is a ranked lattice and *L* is modular, then *L* is 2-distributive in András P. Huhn’s sense, and (3) if *L* is distributive, then RCSub(*L*) is a ranked lattice.

In this paper, centralizing (semi-centralizing) and commuting (semi-commuting) derivations of semirings are characterized. The action of these derivations on Lie ideals is also discussed and as a consequence, some significant results are proved. In addition, Posner’s commutativity theorem is generalized for Lie ideals of semirings and this result is also extended to the case of centralizing (semi-centralizing) derivations of prime semirings. Further, we observe that if there exists a skew-commuting (skew-centralizing) derivation *D* of *S*, then *D* = 0. It is also proved that for any two derivations *d*
_{1} and *d*
_{2} of a prime semiring *S* with char *S* ≠ 2 and *x*
^{
d

}
*x*
^{
d

} = 0, for all *x* ∈ *S* implies either *d*
_{1} = 0 or *d*
_{2} = 0.

We study a combinatorial notion where given a set *S* of lattice points one takes the set of all sums of *p* distinct points in *S*, and we ask the question: ‘if *S* is the set of lattice points of a convex lattice polytope, is the resulting set also the set of lattice points of a convex lattice polytope?’ We obtain a positive result in dimension 2 and a negative result in higher dimensions. We apply this to the corner cut polyhedron.
