There is still a big gap between knowing that a Riemann surface of genus $g$ has $g$ holomorphic differential forms and being able to find them explicitly. The aim of this paper is to show how to construct holomorphic differential forms on compact Riemann surfaces. As known, the dimension of the space $H^1(\mathcal{D}, \mathbb{C})$ of holomorphic differentials of a compact Riemann surface $\mathcal{D}$ is equal to its genus, $\dim H^1(\mathcal{D}, \mathbb{C})=g(\mathcal{D})=g$. When the Riemann surface is concretely described, we show that one can usually present a basis of holomorphic differentials explicitly. We apply the method to the case of relatively complicated Riemann surfaces.

We prove that every Lie derivation on a solid $\ast$-subalgebra in an algebra of locally measurable operators is equal to a sum of an associative derivation and a center-valued trace.

The classical Vitali Covering Lemma on $\mathbb{R}$ states that there exists a constant $c > 0$ such that, given a finite collection of intervals $\{I_j\}$ in $\mathbb{R}$, there exists a disjoint subcollection $\{\tilde{I}_j\} \subseteq \{I_j\}$ such that $|\cup \tilde{I}_j| \geq c |\cup I_j|$. We provide a new proof of this covering lemma using probabilistic techniques and Padovan numbers.

Study of summability theory in an arbitrary topological space is not always an easy issue as many of the convergence methods need linear structure in the space. The concept of statistical convergence is one of the exceptional concepts of summability theory that can be considered in a topological space. There is a strong relationship between this convergence method and strong convergence which is another interesting concept of summability theory. However, dependence of the strong convergence to the metric, studying similar relationship directly in arbitrary Hausdorff spaces is not possible. In this paper we introduce a convergence method which extends the notion of strong convergence to topological spaces. This new definition not only helps us to investigate a similar relationship in a topological space but also leads to study a new type of convergence in topological spaces. We also give a characterization of statistical convergence.
