This quantity includes articles in response to talks awarded on the 13th convention of African American Researchers within the Mathematical Sciences (CAARMS), held at Northeastern collage and the college of Massachusetts, Boston on June 19-22, 2007. The illustration conception of Lie teams and its functions have been a tremendous concentration of the talks. an summary is incorporated of the hot achievements of the Atlas of Lie teams undertaking and the paintings that continues to be to be performed via the Atlas undertaking to completely comprehend the unitary representations of reductive teams. different articles spotlight the importance of medical computing in Lie conception and functions of the illustration idea of Lie teams to the physics of black holes.This quantity includes study papers no longer on the topic of Lie conception: one at the geometry of coisotropic submanifolds of Poisson manifolds and one on contemporary effects at the constitution of the set of ultrafilters at the choice of finite subsets of an unlimited set. It concludes with a survey of CAARMS12 individuals. For volumes in line with earlier CAARMS court cases, see: ""African americans in Mathematics"" (volume 34 within the ""AMS"" sequence, DIMACS), ""African americans in arithmetic: quantity II"" (volume 252 within the ""AMS"" sequence ""Contemporary Mathematics""), ""African americans within the Mathematical Sciences: quantity III"" (volume 275 within the ""Contemporary Mathematics"" sequence) and quantity IV (volume 284 within the ""Contemporary Mathematics"" sequence)

Unwelcome and attacked everywhere – insidiously in Algeria, violently in Morocco – the offices remain inoperative. On that basis all reforms are ineffective. In particular, they cost a lot. They are too expensive for mainland France, and the colons in Algeria have neither the means nor the will to finance them. To provide schooling for everybody – a reform often proposed – would cost 500 billion old francs (calculating the yearly cost per pupil at 32,000 francs). Now the total revenue of Algeria is 300 billion.

Four walls of dried mud, some bread, some figs, ten hours of work a day: here the wages are plainly the minimum necessary to recuperate the strength to work. That is the picture. Can we at least find some compensation for this poverty systematically created by European usurpers in those benefits which are termed not directly measurable, public works and improvement schemes, sanitation, education? If we had this consolation, perhaps we could maintain some hope. Perhaps some judiciously chosen reforms … But no, the system is pitiless.

To whom will he sell? To the people of mainland France. And what can he sell without an industry? Food products and raw materials. This time, under the aegis of Minister Ferry and the theoretician Leroy-Beaulieu, colonial status is established. And what are the ‘sacrifices’ that the State makes to the colonist, to this man, the darling of gods and exporters? The answer is simple: it sacrifices the property of the Muslims to him. Because it so happens that, in fact, the natural produce of the colonized country grows on the land and that this land belongs to the ‘indigenous’ population.
