IPMU, Mathematics, Physics, and me
[ Abstract ]
Institute for the Physics and Mathematics of the Universe (IPMU) was founded to promote synergy between mathematics and physics, and to address deep mysteries about the universe. In this colloquium, I will discuss the mysteries IPMU will address, and why the interaction between mathematicians and physicists are crucial for this purpose. I will also talk about my personal journey about mathematics and physics.

(The uniqueness and asymptotic stability of pyramidal traveling fronts in the Allen-Cahn equations)

[ Abstract ]
We study the uniqueness and the asymptotic stability of a pyramidal traveling front in the three-dimensional whole space. For a given admissible pyramid we prove that a pyramidal traveling front is uniquely determined and that it is asymptotically stable under the condition that given perturbations decay at infinity. For this purpose we characterize the pyramidal traveling front as a combination of planar fronts on the lateral surfaces. Moreover we characterize the pyramidal traveling front in another way, that is, we write it as a combination of two-dimensional V-form waves on the edges. This characterization also uniquely determines a pyramidal traveling front.

Multiplier ideal sheaves and Futaki invariant on toric Fano manifolds.
[ Abstract ]
I would like to discuss the subvarieties cut off by the multiplier
ideal sheaves (MIS) and Futaki invariant on toric Fano manifolds.
Futaki invariant is one of the necessary conditions for the existence
of Kahler-Einstein metrics on Fano manifolds,
on the other hand MIS is one of the sufficient conditions introduced by Nadel.
Especially I would like to focus on the MIS related to the Monge-Ampere equation
for Kahler-Einstein metrics on non-KE toric Fano manifolds.
The motivation of this work comes from the investigation of the
relationship with slope stability
of polarized manifolds introduced by Ross and Thomas.
This talk will be based on a part of the joint work with Akito Futaki

Confluent KZ equations for $sl_2$ and quantization of monodromy preserving deformation
[ Abstract ]
We obtain a system of confluent Knizhnik-Zamolodchikov (KZ) equations which generalizes that of KZ equations for $sl_2$,
and give integral solutions of the system. We also study the relation between the system and monodromy preserving deformation theory,
and recover quantizations of Painlev\\'e equations P_I-P_V with affine Weyl group symmetry which are introduced by H.Nagoya.

Exact Solution and Physical Combinatorics of Critical Dense
[ Abstract ]
A Yang-Baxter integrable model of critical dense polymers on the
square lattice
is introduced corresponding to the first member ${\\cal LM}(1,2)$ of a
family of logarithmic
minimal models. The model has no local degrees of freedom, only non-
local degrees
of freedom in the form of extended polymers. The model is built
diagrammatically using the
planar Temperley-Lieb algebra and solved exactly on finite width
strips using transfer matrix
techniques. The bulk and boundary free energies and finite-size
corrections are
obtained from the Euler-Maclaurin formula. The spectra are classified
by selection rules and
the physical combinatorics of the eigenvalue patterns of zeros in the
spectral-parameter plane. This yields explicit finitized conformal
In particular, in the scaling limit, we confirm the central charge
$c=-2$ and conformal weights
$\\Delta_{1,s}=\\frac{(2-s)^2-1}{8}$ for $s=1,2,3,\\ldots$ where $s-1$ is
the number
of defects.

[ Abstract ]
再生核ヒルベルト空間を用いて、ヒルベルト多様体として指数分布族を 構成する方法について述べる。無限次元指数分布族に関しては、Orlicz 空間を用いたPistone & Sempi (1995) の構成法が知られているが、 有限サンプルによる推定を考える場合、尤度関数が多様体上の連続汎関 数にならない点が問題となる。本講演の構成では、再生核ヒルベルト空 間を用いることにより尤度関数は連続となり、統計的推定の議論が容易 となる。再生核ヒルベルト空間が有限次元の場合は通常の有限次元指数 分布族の推定理論と一致し、無限次元の場合はその自然な拡張を与える。 本講演では、統計的推定への応用として、正則化最尤推定法と、特異点 を持つモデルの漸近理論に関して述べる。

Some Unsolved Inverse Spectral Problems
[ Abstract ]
Perhaps the first well-studied inverse problem
was the determination of the potential $q(x)$ in
$-u'' + q(x) u = \\lambda_n u$ given the eigenvalues
$\\{\\lambda_n\\}$. Despite its venerable age and
the fact that a considerable literature is still being published,
there are several major outstanding problems;
some are quite simple to state.
This seminar will outline some of these.
We will try to show why the problems are hard,
but leave it to the audience to attempt solutions.

$p$-adic elliptic polylogarithm, $p$-adic Eisenstein series and Katz measure
(joint work with G. Kings)

[ Abstract ]
The Eisenstein classes are important elements in the motivic cohomology
of a modular curve, defined as the specializations of the motivic elliptic
polylogarithm by torsion sections. The syntomic Eisenstein classes are
defined as the image by the syntomic regulator of the motivic Eisenstein
classes. In this talk, we explain our result concerning the relation between
syntomic Eisenstein classes restricted to the ordinary locus and
p-adic Eisenstein series.

Inverse Obstacle Recovery when the boundary condition is also unknown
[ Abstract ]
We consider the inverse problem of recovering the shape, location
and surface properties of an object where the surrounding medium
is both conductive and homogeneous. It is assumed that the physical situation is modeled by either harmonic functions or solutions of the Helmholtz equation and that the boundary condition on the obstacle is one of impedance type. We measure either Cauchy data, on an accessible part of the exterior boundary or the far field pattern resulting from a plane wave. Given sets of Cauchy data pairs we wish to recover both the shape and location of the unknown obstacle together with its impedance.
It turns out this adds considerable complexity to the analysis. We give a local injectivity result and use two different algorithms
to investigate numerical reconstructions. The setting is in two space dimensions, but indications of possible extensions (and difficulties) to three dimensions are provided. We also look at the case of a nonlinear impedance function.

The Inverse Scattering Problem for an Isotropic Medium
[ Abstract ]
This talk is concerned with the inverse electromagnetic scattering problem for an isotropic inhomogeneous infinite cylinder. After formulating the direct scattering problem we proceed to the inverse scattering problem which is the main theme of this lecture. After discussing what is known about uniqueness for the inverse problem,we will proceed to the definition and properties of the far field operator. This leads to the study of a rather unusual spectral problem for partial differential equations called the interior transmission problem. We will state what is known about this problem including its role in determining lower bounds for the index of refraction from a knowledge of the far field pattern of the scattered wave, The talk is concluded by briefly considering the case of limited aperture data,in particular the use of the gap reciprocity method to determine the shape and location of buried objects. Numerical examples will be given as well as a number of open problems.

On the geometry of certain slices of the character variety of a knot group
[ Abstract ]
joint work with Fumikazu Nagasato (Meijo University)
This talk is concerned with certain subsets in the character variety of a knot group.
These subsets are called '"slices", which are defined as a level set of a regular function associated to a meridian of a knot.
They are related to character varieties for branched covers along the knot.
Some investigations indicate that an equivariant theory for a knot is connected to a theory for branched covers via slices, for example, the equivariant signature of a knot and the equivariant Casson invariant.
In this talk, we will construct a map from slices into the character varieties for branched covers and investigate the properties.
In particular, we focus on slices called "trace-free", which are used to define the Casson-Lin invariant, and the relation to the character variety for two--fold branched cover.

Intersection theory from duality and replica
[ Abstract ]
Kontsevich's work on Airy matrix integrals has led to explicit results for the
intersection numbers of the moduli space of curves. In this article we show that a duality between k-point functions on N by N matrices and N-point functions of k by k matrices, plus the replica method, familiar in the theory of disordered systems, allows one to recover Kontsevich's results on the intersection numbers, and to generalize them to other models. This provides an alternative and simple way to compute intersection numbers with one marked point, and leads also to some new results. This is a joint work with E. Brezin (Comm.Math. Phys. in press, arXiv:0708.2210).

Visible actions on multiplicity-free spaces
[ Abstract ]
The holomorphic action of a Lie group G on a complex manifold D is called strongly visible if there exist a real submanifold S such that D':=G・S is open in D and an anti-holomorphic diffeomorphism σ which is an identity map on S and preserves each G-orbit in D'.
In this talk, we treat the case where D is a multiplicity-free space V of a connected complex reductive Lie group G(C), and show that the action of a compact real form of G(C) on V is strongly visible.
