Seminar on Geometric Complex Analysis

10:30-12:00   Room #128 (Graduate School of Math. Sci. Bldg.)
Yûsuke Okuyama (Kyoto Institute of Technology)
Degeneration and bifurcation of quadratic endomorphisms of P^2
towards a H¥'enon map (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
The space of quadratic holomorphic endomorphisms of P^2 (over C) is
canonically identified with the complement of the zero locus of the
resultant form on P^{17}, and all H¥'enon maps, which are (the only)
interesting ones among all the quadratic polynomial automorphisms of C^2,
live in this zero locus.

We will talk about our joint work with Fabrizio Bianchi (Imperial College,
London) on the (algebraic) degeneration of quadratic endomorphisms of C^2
towards H¥'enon maps in terms of Berteloot-Bianchi-Dupont's
bifurcation/unstability theory of holomorphic families of endomorphisms of P^k,
which mostly generalizes Ma¥~n¥'e-Sad-Sullivan, Lyubich, and DeMarco's seminal
and similar theory on P^1.

Some preliminary knowledge on ergodic theory and pluripotential theory
would be desirable, but not be assumed.

BIRATIONAL BOUNDEDNESS OF RATIONALLY CONNECTED CALABI–YAU 3-FOLDS
(English)
[ Abstract ]
Firstly, we show that rationally connected Calabi–Yau 3- folds with kawamata log terminal (klt) singularities form a birationally bounded family, or more generally, rationally connected 3-folds of ε-CY type form a birationally bounded family for ε > 0. Then we focus on ε-lc log Calabi–Yau pairs (X, B) such that coefficients of B are bounded from below away from zero. We show that such pairs are log bounded modulo flops. As a consequence, we show that rationally connected klt Calabi–Yau 3-folds with mld bounding away from 1 are bounded modulo flops.

Singular Fibers of smooth maps and Cobordism groups (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
Following the pioneering work of R.Thom, cobordism groups of smooth maps have been studied by some mathematicians. Especially, cobordism groups of Morse functions on closed manifolds was studied by O.Saeki and K.Ikegami, B.Kalmar. In this talk, we will introduce cobordism groups among Morse functions on compact manifolds with boundary and study the cobordism groups are trivial or not by using the theory of the universal complex of singular fibers of smooth maps.

Introduction to the Langlands-Rapoport conjecture (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
In 1970s Langlands envisioned a program to compute the Hasse-Weil zeta functions of Shimura varieties as an alternating product of automorphic L-functions, which in particular implies the meromorphic continuation and functional equation for the zeta functions. In 1987, Langlands and Rapoport formulated a precise and far-reaching conjecture describing the set of points of Shimura varieties modulo p as an essential step towards the goal. The program has been largely carried out by Langlands, Kottwitz, and others for PEL-type Shimura varieties with striking applications to the local and global Langlands correspondences (which in turn led to further applications). We have started to understand the more general Hodge-type and abelian-type cases only recently, thanks to Kisin's work on the Langlands-Rapoport conjecture in the good reduction case. The lecture aims to give a gentle introduction to his seminal paper. After a brief introduction, the lecture is divided into four parts.
(i) Shimura varieties: We introduce Shimura varieties of Hodge type and abelian type and their integral models.
(ii) Statement of the conjecture: After setting up the language of
Galois gerbs, we state the Langlands-Rapoport conjecture.
(iii) Sketch of Kisin's proof: We sketch Kisin's proof of the conjecture for Shimura varieties of Hodge type.
(iv) Counting fixed points: Following forthcoming work of Kisin, Y. Zhu, and the speaker, we explain how to apply the Langlands-Rapoport conjecture to count fixed-points of
Hecke-Frobenius correspondences.

Dan Cristofaro-Gardiner (University of California, Santa Cruz)
Beyond the Weinstein conjecture (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
The Weinstein conjecture states that any Reeb vector field on a closed manifold has at least one closed orbit. The three-dimensional case of this conjecture was proved by Taubes in 2007, and Hutchings and I later showed that in this case there are always at least 2 orbits. While examples exist with exactly two orbits, one expects that this lower bound can be significantly improved with additional assumptions. For example, a theorem of Hofer, Wysocki, and Zehnder states that a generic nondegenerate Reeb vector field associated to the "standard" contact structure on $S^3$ has either 2, or infinitely many, closed orbits. We prove that any nondegenerate Reeb vector field has 2 or infinitely many closed orbits as long as the associated contact structure has torsion first Chern class. This is joint work with Mike Hutchings and Dan Pomerleano.

Endoscopy and cohomology of U(n-1,1) (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
We apply the endoscopic classification of automorphic representations for inner forms of unitary groups to bound the growth of cohomology in congruence towers of locally symmetric spaces associated with U(n-1,1). Our bound is sharper than the bound predicted by Sarnak-Xue for general locally symmetric spaces. This is joint work with Simon Marshall.

The Cohomology of Rapoport-Zink Spaces of EL-Type

[ Abstract ]
I will discuss Rapoport-Zink spaces of EL-type and how to explicitly compute a certain variant of their cohomology in terms of the local Langlands correspondence for general linear groups. I will then show how this computation can be used to resolve certain cases of a conjecture of Harris.

Alex Youcis (University of California, Berkeley)
The Langlands-Kottwitz method for deformation spaces of Hodge type
[ Abstract ]
Cohomology of global Shimura varieties is an object of universal importance in the Langlands program. Given a Shimura datum (G,X) and a (sufficiently nice) representation ¥xi of G, one obtains an l-adic sheaf F_{¥xi,l} on Sh(G,X) with a G(A_f)-structure. Thus, in the standard way, the cohomology group H^*(Sh(G,X),F_¥xi) has an admissible action of Gal(¥overline{E}/E) ¥times G(A_f), where E=E(G,X) is the reflex field of (G,X). Extending work of Kottwitz, Scholze, and others we discuss a method for computing the traces of this action, more specifically of an element ¥tau ¥times g where ¥tau ¥in W_{E_¥mathfrak{p}} for some prime ¥mathfrak{p} of E dividing p and g ¥in G(A_f^p) ¥times G(Z_p), in terms of a weighted point count on the Shimura variety's special fiber, as well as the traces of various local Shimura varieties over E_¥mathfrak{p}, at least in the case when (G,X) is a abelian-type Shimura datum unramified at p.

Harmonic map and the Einstein equation in five dimension (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
We present a new method in constructing 5-dimensional stationary solutions to the vacuum Einstein equation. In 1917, H. Weyl expressed the Schwarzschild black hole solution using a cylindical coordinate system, and consequently realized that the metric is completely determined by a harmonic function. Since then, the relation between harmonic maps and the Einstein equation has been explored mostly by physicists, which they call the sigma model of the Einstein equation. In this talk, after explaining the historical background, we demonstrate that in 5D, the Einstein spacetimes can have a wide range of black hole horizons in their topological types. In particular we establish an existence theorem of harmonic maps, which subsequently leads to constructions of 5D spacetimes with black hole horizons of positive Yamabe types, namely $S^3$, $S^2 \times S^1$, and the lens space $L(p,q)$. This is a joint work with Marcus Khuri and Gilbert Weinstein.

On the singularity theory of mixed hypersurfaces and some conjecture (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
Consider a real algebraic variety of real codimension 2 defined by $V:=\{g(\mathbf x,\mathbf y)=h(\mathbf x,\mathbf y)=0\}$ in $\mathbb C^n=\mathbb R^n\times \mathbb R^n$. Put $\mathbf z=\mathbf x+i\mathbf y$ and consider complex valued real analytic function $f=g+ih$. Replace the variables $x_1,y_1\dots, x_n,y_n$ using the equality $x_j=(z_j+\bar z_j)/2,\, y_j=(z_j-\bar z_j)/2i$. Then $f$ can be understood to be an analytic functions of $z_j,\bar z_j$. We call $f$ a mixed function. In this way, $V=\{f(\mathbf z,\bar{\mathbf z})=0\}$ and we can use the techniques of complex analytic functions and the singularity theory developed there. In this talk, we explain basic properties of the singularity of mixed hyper surface $V(f)$ and give several open questions.
