Taro Fujisawa (Tokyo Denki University)
Semipositivity theorems for a variation of Hodge structure
[ Abstract ]
I will talk about my recent joint work with Osamu Fujino. The main purpose of our joint work is to generalize the Fujita-Zukcer-Kawamata semipositivity theorem from the analytic viewpoint. In this talk, I would like to illustrate the relation between the two objects, the asymptotic behavior of a variation of Hodge structure and good properties of the induced singular hermitian metric on an invertible subbundle of the Hodge bundle.

Local and global coincidence homology classes (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
We consider two differentiable maps between two oriented manifolds. In the case the manifolds are compact with the same dimension and the coincidence points are isolated, there is the Lefschetz coincidence point formula, which generalizes his fixed point formula. In this talk we discuss the case where the dimensions of the manifolds may possible be different so that the coincidence points are not isolated in general. In fact it seems that Lefschetz himself already considered this case (cf. [4]).

We introduce the local and global coincidence homology classes and state a general coincidence point theorem.
We then give some explicit expressions for the local class. We also take up the case of several maps as considered in [1] and perform similar tasks. These all together lead to a generalization of the aforementioned Lefschetz formula. The key ingredients are the Alexander duality in combinatorial topology, intersection theory with maps and the Thom class in Čech-de Rham cohomology. The contents of the talk are in [2] and [3].

Upper bound of the multiplicity of locally complete intersection singularities (English)
[ Abstract ]
The multiplicity of a point on a variety is a fundamental invariant to estimate how the singularity is bad. It is introduced in a purely algebraic context. On the other hand, we can also attach to the singularity the log canonical threshold and the minimal log discrepancy, which are introduced in a birational theoretic context. In this talk, we show bounds of the multiplicity by functions of these birational invariants for a singularity of locally a complete intersection. As an application, we obtain the affirmative answer to Watanabe’s conjecture on the multiplicity of canonical singularity of locally a complete intersection up to dimension 32.

On the moduli spaces of the tangent cones at infinity of some hyper-Kähler manifolds
[ Abstract ]
For a metric space $(X,d)$, the Gromov-Hausdorff limit of $(X, a_n d)$ as $a_n \rightarrow 0$ is called the tangent cone at infinity of $(X,d)$. Although the tangent cone at infinity always exists if $(X,d)$ comes from a complete Riemannian metric with nonnegative Ricci curvature, the uniqueness does not hold in general. Colding and Minicozzi showed the uniqueness under the assumption that $(X,d)$ is a Ricci-flat manifold satisfying some additional conditions.
In this talk, I will explain a example of noncompact complete hyper-Kähler manifold who has several tangent cones at infinity, and determine the moduli space of them.

Twisted Alexander invariants and Hyperbolic volume of knots (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
In [1], Müller investigated the asymptotics of the Ray-Singer analytic torsion of hyperbolic 3-manifolds, and then Menal-Ferrer and Porti [2] have obtained a formula on the volume of a hyperbolic 3-manifold using the Higher-dimensional Reidemeister torsion.

On the other hand, Yoshikazu Yamaguchi has shown that a relationship between the twisted Alexander polynomial and the Reidemeister torsion associated with the adjoint representation of the holonomy representation of a hyperbolic 3-manifold in his thesis [3].

In this talk, we observe that Yamaguchi's idea is applicable to the Higher-dimensional Reidemeister torsion, then we give a volume formula of a hyperbolic knot using the twisted Alexander polynomial.

Complex K3 surfaces containing Levi-flat hypersurfaces
[ Abstract ]
We show the existence of a complex K3 surface $X$ which is not a Kummer surface and has a one-parameter family of Levi-flat hypersurfaces in which all the leaves are dense. We construct such $X$ by patching two open complex surfaces obtained as the complements of tubular neighborhoods of elliptic curves embedded in blow-ups of the projective planes at general nine points.

Johnson homomorphisms, stable and unstable (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
In this talk I will recall how motivic structures (Hodge and/or Galois) on the relative completions of mapping class groups yield non-trivial information about Johnson homomorphisms. I will explain how these motivic structures can be pasted, and why I believe that the genus 1 case is of fundamental importance in studying the higher genus (stable) case.

LCK structures on compact solvmanifolds
[ Abstract ]
A locally conformal Kähler (in short LCK) manifold is said to be Vaisman if Lee form is parallel with respect to Levi-Civita connection. In this talk, we prove that a Vaisman structure on a compact solvmanifolds depends only on the form of the fundamental 2-form, and it do not depends on a complex structure. As an application, we give the structure theorem for Vaisman (completely solvable) solvmanifolds and LCK nilmanifolds. Moreover, we show the existence of LCK solvmanifolds without Vaisman structures.

On a conjecture of Dunfield, Friedl and Jackson for hyperbolic knots (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
The hyperbolic torsion polynomial is defined to be the twisted Alexander polynomial associated to the holonomy representation of a hyperbolic knot. Dunfield, Friedl and Jackson conjecture that the hyperbolic torsion polynomial determines the genus and fiberedness of a hyperbolic knot. In this talk we will survey recent results on the conjecture and explain its generalization to hyperbolic links.

$Q$-functions associated to the root system of type $C$ (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
Schur $Q$-functions are a family of symmetric functions introduced
by Schur in his study of projective representations of symmetric
groups. They are obtained by putting $t=-1$ in the Hall-Littlewood
functions associated to the root system of type $A$. (Schur
functions are the $t=0$ specialization.) This talk concerns
symplectic $Q$-functions, which are obtained by putting $t=-1$
in the Hall-Littlewood functions associated to the root system
of type $C$. We discuss several Pfaffian identities as well
as a combinatorial description for them. Also we present some
positivity conjectures.
