In this note we introduce the concept of a numerical range of a bounded linear operator on a Hilbert space with respect to a family of projections. We give a precise definition and elaborate on its connection to the classical numerical range as well as to generalizations thereof such as the quadratic numerical range, block numerical range, and product numerical range. In general, the importance of this new notion lies within its unifying aspect.

### Complex powers of abstract pseudodifferential operators

Methods Funct. Anal. Topology **24** (2018), no. 4, 305-338

Under suitable assumptions, we show that the abstract pseudodifferen\-tial operators introduced by Connes and Moscovici possess complex powers that belong to this class of operators. We analyse several spectral functions obtained via the (super)trace including the zeta function and the heat trace. We present examples showing that the analysis is explicit and tractable.

In this paper we show that Sheffer operators, mapping monomials to certain Sheffer polynomial sequences, such as falling and rising factorials, Charlier, and Hermite polynomials extend to continuous automorphisms on the space of entire functions of first order growth and minimal type.

### On the Gevrey ultradifferentiability of weak solutions of an abstract evolution equation with a scalar type spectral operator

Methods Funct. Anal. Topology **24** (2018), no. 4, 349-369

Found are conditions on a scalar type spectral operator $A$ in a complex Banach space necessary and sufficient for all weak solutions of the evolution equation \begin{equation*} y'(t)=Ay(t),\quad t\ge 0, \end{equation*} to be strongly Gevrey ultradifferentiable of order $\beta\ge 1$, in particular analytic or entire, on $[0,\infty)$. Certain inherent smoothness improvement effects are analyzed.

### Lacunary $\mathcal{I}$-convergent and lacunary $\mathcal{I}$-bounded sequence spaces defined by a Musielak-Orlicz function over $n$-normed spaces

Methods Funct. Anal. Topology **24** (2018), no. 4, 370-380

In the present paper we defined $\mathcal{I}$-convergent and $\mathcal{I}$-bounded sequence spaces defined by a Musielak-Orlicz function $\mathcal{M} = (M_k)$ over $n$-normed spaces. We also make an effort to study some topological properties and prove some inclusion relation between these spaces.

Vector spaces of all homogeneous continuous polynomials on infinite dimensional Banach spaces are infinite dimensional. But spaces of homogeneous continuous polynomials with some additional natural properties can be finite dimensional. The so-called symmetry of polynomials on some classes of Banach spaces is one of such properties. In this paper we consider continuous symmetric $3$-homogeneous polynomials on the complex Banach space $L_\infty$ of all Lebesgue measurable essentially bounded complex-valued functions on $[0,1]$ and on the Cartesian square of this space. We construct Hamel bases of spaces of such polynomials and prove formulas for representing of polynomials as linear combinations of base polynomials. Results of the paper can be used for investigations of algebras of symmetric continuous polynomials and of symmetric analytic functions on $L_\infty$ and on its Cartesian square. In particular, in order to describe appropriate topologies on the spectrum (the set of complex valued homomorphisms) of a given algebra of analytic functions, it is useful to have representations for polynomials, obtained in this paper.
