A Decision-Theoretic Approach to Estimation from Wishart matrices on Symmetric Cones
[ Abstract ]
James and Stein(1961) have considered the problem of estimating the mean matrix of Wishart distributions under so-called Stein's loss function and obtained a minimax estimator with a constant risk. Later Stein(1977) has given an unbiased risk estimate for a class of orthogonally invariant estimators, from which he obtained orthogonally invariant minimax estimators which are uniformly better than the best triangular-invariant estimator in James and Stein(1961). The works mentioned above lead to the following natural question: Is it possible for any estimators to improve upon the maximum likelihood estimator for the mean matrix of the complex or quaternion Wishart distributions? This talk shows that we can obtain improved estimators for the mean matrix under these models in a unified manner. The method involves an abstract theory of finite-dimensional Euclidean simple Jordan algebra

Quasilinear hyperbolic equations with hysteresis
[ Abstract ]
We consider a wave propagation problem in a rate independent elastoplastic material described by a counterclockwise convex hysteresis operator. Unlike in viscoelasticity, the speed of propagation is bounded above by the speed of the corresponding elastic waves. The smoothening dissipative effect is due to the convexity of the hysteresis branches. We present some recent results on the long time behavior of solutions under various boundary conditions, including the stability of time periodic solutions under periodic forcing.

Carleman estimates for second order operators with two large parameters
[ Abstract ]
We obtain new Carleman type estimates for general second order linear partial differential operators. These estimates hold for the weight functions under pseudoconvexity conditions relating the operator and weight function. We discuss these conditions. We give applications to uniqueness and stability of the continuation and inverse problems for elasticity system with residual stress without smallness assumptions on residual stress. This is a joint work with Nanhee Kim.

Morse theory for abelian hyperkahler quotients

[ Abstract ]
In 1980's Kirwan computed Betti numbers of symplectic quotients by using Morse theory. In this talk, we develop this method to hyperkahler quotients by abelian Lie groups. In this method, many computations are much more simplified in the case of hyperkahler quotients than the case of symplectic quotients. As a result we compute not only the Betti numbers, but also the cohomology rings of abelian hyperkahler quotients.

A quandle cocycle invariant for handlebody-links

[ Abstract ]
[joint work with Masahide Iwakiri (Osaka City University)]
A handlebody-link is a disjoint union of circles and a
finite trivalent graph embedded in a closed 3-manifold.
We consider it up to isotopies and IH-moves.
Then it represents an ambient isotopy class of
handlebodies embedded in the closed 3-manifold.
In this talk, I explain how a quandle cocycle invariant
is defined for handlebody-links.

Kontsevich quantization of Poisson manifolds and Duflo isomorphism.
[ Abstract ]
Abstract: Since the fundamental results by Chevalley, Harish-Chandra and Dixmier one knows that the set of invariant polynomials on the dual of a Lie algebra of a particular type (solvable, simple or nilpotent) is isomorphic, as an algebra, to the center of the enveloping algebra. This fact was generalized to an arbitrary finite-dimensional real Lie algebra by M. Duflo in late 1970's. His proof was based on the Kirillov's orbits method that parametrizes infinitesimal characters of unitary irreducible representations of the corresponding Lie group in terms of co-adjoint orbits.

The Kontsevich' Formality theorem implies not only the existence of the Duflo map but shows that it is canonical. We shall describe this construction and indicate how does this construction extend to the whole Poisson cohomology of an arbitrary finite-dimensional real Lie algebra.

[ Abstract ]
非線形シュレディンガー方程式
$$ -\\epsilon2 \\Delta u +V(x)u= u^p, u>0 \\ \\hbox{in} \\R^N,
u\\in H1(\\R^N)$$
において、$\\epsilon \\to 0$ としたときに V(x) の k個の極小点にピークが集中していくマルチピーク解 $u_\\epsilon$ について考える。
ここで、p はsuperlinear, subcriticalの条件を満たし, ポテンシャル関数 V(x) は非負の有界な関数で $\\liminf_{|x|\\to \\infty}V(x)>0$ を満たすとする。

もし V(x) の各極小点に集中するピークがあるとしたら、そのピークの形状や大きさはその極小値が正であるか、0であるかによって大きく異なることが知られている。
この講演では V(x) の各極小値が正であるか 0 であるかにかかわらず、各 k個の極小点にピークが集中するマルチピーク解 $u_\\epsilon$ を構成する。

Abelian varieties with constrained torsion
[ Abstract ]
The pro-$l$ Galois representation attached to the arithmetic fundamental group of a curve $X$ is heavily influenced by the arithmetic of certain classes of its branched covers. It is natural, therefore, to search for and classify these special covers in a meaningful way. When $X$ is the projective line minus three points, one finds that such covers are very scarce. In joint work with Akio Tamagawa, we formulate a conjecture to quanitify this scarcity, and present a proof for the conjecture in the case of genus one curves defined over $\\Q$.

A certain slice of the character variety of a knot group
and the knot contact homology

[ Abstract ]
For a knot $K$ in 3-sphere, we can consider representations of
the knot group $G_K$ into $SL(2,\\mathbb{C})$.
Their characters construct an algebraic set.
This is so-called the $SL(2,\\mathbb{C})$-character variety of
$G_K$ and denoted by $X(G_K)$.

In this talk, we introduce a slice (a subset) $S_0(K)$ of $X(G_K)$.
In fact, this slice is closely related to the A-polynomial
and the abelian knot contact homology.
For example, the A-polynomial $A_K(m,l)$ of a knot $K$ is
a two-variable polynomial knot invariant defined by using
the character variety $X(G_K)$.
Then we can show that for any {\\it small knot} $K$, the number of
irreducible components of $S_0(K)$ gives an upper bound of
the maximal degree of the A-polynomial $A_K(m,l)$ in terms of
the variable $l$.
Moreover, for any 2-bridge knot $K$, we can show that
the coordinate ring of $S_0(K)$ is exactly the degree 0
abelian knot contact homology $HC_0^{ab}(K)$.

We will mainly explain these facts.

Asymptotic cone for semisimple elements and the associated variety of degenerate principal series
[ Abstract ]
Let $ a $ be a hyperbolic element in a semisimple Lie algebra over the real number field. Let $ K $ be the complexification of a maximal compact subgroup of the corresponding real adjoint group. We study the asymptotic cone of the semisimple orbit through $ a $ under the adjoint action by $ K $. The resulting asymptotic cone is the associated variety of a degenerate principal series representation induced from the parabolic associated to $ a $.

Pullback formula for vector valued Siegel modular forms and its applications

[ Abstract ]
$H_n$ を $n$ 次 Siegel 上半空間, $E^n_k$ を次数 $n$, 重さ $k$ のSiegel Eisenstein 級数とする. いま $p$, $q$ を自然数としたとき,$H_p\\times H_q$ は $H_{p+q}$ の中に埋め込むことができる. Garrett は $E^{p+q}_k$ を $H_p\\times H_q$ 上に制限したときに Klingen Eisenstein 級数や Siegel 保型形式の standard $L$ 函数の値などで表示する公式を与へた. この公式は pullback formula とよばれてゐる.
この pullback formula はBoecherer によつて複素パラメータつきの Eisenstein 級数の場合に拡張され, Klingen Eisenstein 級数や standard $L$ 函数についての結果が得られてゐる.

Dynamical r-matrices coupled with dual Poisson Lie group
[ Abstract ]
The notion dynamical r-matrix coupled with Poisson manifold
is a natural generalization of the notion of the classical
dynamical r-matrix. We will consider special case when
Poisson manifold is a dual Poisson Lie group. We discuss
necessary conditions for the existence dynamical r-matrices
coupled with dual Poisson Lie groups and provide
some examples. We will also discuss some open questions
and possible relations to other subjects.

Yang-Baxter Equation and Quantum Geometry
[ Abstract ]
We demonstrate that certain integrable models
of statistical mechanics and quantum field theory
can be interpreted as quantization's of objects
of classical discrete geometry.
The fluctuating variables in these models take continuous
values. The classical geometry corresponds to stationary
configurations in the quasi-classical (or zero-temperature)
limit of the quantum system.
Our main example is the Faddeev-Volkov model which describes
the quantization of the circle patterns and associated with
the Thurston's discrete analogue of the Riemann mapping theorem
(discrete conformal transformations of the 2D plane).
Other examples will be also considered.
Finally we will discuss the geometric origins of integrability
which stem from from the classical results of Lam\\'e,
Darboux and Bianchi in differential geometry.

Estimation of Distortion Risk Measures
[ Abstract ]
By Kusuoka's representation theorem, the class of distortion risk measures with convex distortions coincides with the set of coherent risk measures that are law invariant and comonotonically additive. The class includes the renowned expected shortfall which has many nice features and is of frequent use in practice. To implement the risk management/regulatory procedure using risk measures, it is necessary to estimate the values of such risk measures. For a distortion risk measure, its form suggests a natural estimator which is a simple form of $L$-statistics. We have seen in our previous work that it has nice asymptotic properties with i.i.d.\\ data. After reviewing these results briefly, we investigate the large sample properties of the estimator based on dependent data, especially GARCH sequences, which are often used for modelling financial time series data. Related issues such as semiparametric estimation with the extreme value theory and backtesting are briefly addressed.

Modelling the olfactory system: From receptor neuron dynamics over axonal pathfinding and sorting to spatio-temporal activities in the bulb
[ Abstract ]
The olfactory system of e.g. mice serves as important model case for other brain regions. The odor signals are processed from receptor neurons over the glomeruli level to a neural network of mitral and granular cells while various types of nonlinear behaviour can be observed.

(1) Nonlinear dynamics in receptor neurons:
A mathematical model for Ca oscillations in the cilia of olfactory
sensory neurons is suggested and analyzed. The existence of an oscillatory regime based on a Hopf bifurcation is proven using stoichiometric network analysis where the knowledge of exact parameters is not required. Predictions of the model are in quantitative agreement with experiment, both with respect to oscillations and to fast adaptation.

(2) Sorting by self-organization:
A many particle model with attracting and repulsive interactions is proposed which is able to reproduce the experimental findings of sorting and convergence during axonal pathfinding in the olfactory system. Many axon species, each represented by a huge number of axons, are spatially disordered at the beginning of their growth at the receptor neurons and converge by a self-organized process to a sorted state, i.e. axons of the same receptor type converge to a common position. Under certain model assumptions, it can be proved that the interacting many-particle system of different particle types converges to a sorted state.

(3) Spatio-temporal pattern formation in the olfactory bulb:
Odors evoke a variety of stimulus specific spatio-temporal patterns on the levels of glomeruli and neural network of mitral and granular cells in the olfactory bulb which can be measured in vivo using Ca and voltage sensitive dyes for optical imaging. A spatial independent component analysis of this high-resolution imaging data was used to identify and separate different neuronal populations based on their stimulus specific spatio-temporal activation. Equation-free techniques were used to obtain bifurcation diagramms for the network activity. First, contrast enhancement between several spatially close activations depending on the network topology and second, hysteres effects in recognition of differences between similar odorants depending on the concentration ratios of odorant mixtures.

This is in parts joint work with P. Borowski, M. Eiswirth, C. Ellsaesser, A. Grinvald, N. Hummel, S. Kokkendorff, D. Omer, J. Reidl, H. Spors, J. Strotmann, M. Zapotocky.

解析的捩率と保型形式
[ Abstract ]
70年代にRayとSingerは位相幾何学におけるReidemeister捩率の解析的類似を考察し,解析的捩率と呼ばれるスペクトル不変量を導入した. de Rham複体とDolbeault複体に対応して, 解析的捩率には実解析的捩率と正則解析的捩率の二種類の理論があり,80年代から現在に至るBismutの研究により両理論は長足の発展を遂げた.
一般論が整備された後で講演者が興味を持ったのは,解析的捩率を具体的に計算するという問題であった.既にRayとSingerは正則解析的捩率を導入した論文の中で楕円曲線の正則解析的捩率を計算し,それが楕円曲線の判別式のノルムで与えられることを示していた. この講演では「楕円曲線の解析的捩率はモジュライ空間上の保型形式で与えられる」というRay-Singerの主張がどのように高次元化されるのかを対合付きK3曲面とEnriques曲面の場合を中心に概観したい. 時間が許せば, その他の場合(三次元Calabi-Yau多様体やAbel多様体等)についても言及したい.
