大規模ランダム行列のスペクトル理論とデータ解析への応用(Review)
[ Abstract ]
The empirical spectral distribution of random matrices have been studied since Wigner's pioneering work on the semicircular law in the 1950's. The result says that the empirical spectral distribution of a symmetric matrix with i.i.d. random elements converges to the semicircular law as the size of the matrix becomes large. Though this result is beautiful in theory, its application has been limited to a few problems in nuclear physics and coding theory. The next breakthrough was the Marcenko-Pastur (M-P) law for the asymptotic spectral distribution of sample covariance matrices. The M-P law has found more applications, in particular high dimensional statistical data analysis, than the semicircular law.

In this talk I will first review these two significant results. Each of them has three completely different proofs. Then I will explain several other theoretical results that have mostly been studied this decade. Finally, I will present some of the applications of these results. This review is partly based on lectures on random matrices given by P. Bickel, N. El-Karoui and A. Guionnet, and also some seminars at UC Berkeley.

(# This talk is almost the same as the talk I gave at ISM on June 1.)

Easy full-joint estimators of stable processes
[ Abstract ]
安定レヴィ過程からの高頻度観測に基づいた同時推定に関しては,尤度比確率場の漸近挙動は安易に二次項の観測情報量まで見ただけでは解明されず,最尤推定量の典型的な“良い漸近挙動”が保証されないことが分かっている.本発表では,標本メディアンおよび標本メディアンのプラグイン型統計量の漸近挙動に基づき,モデルに入る全パラメータの同時推定を可能とする計算容易な推定量の構成法を紹介し,正則な漸近共分散行列を有する漸近正規性を導出する.推定量の有限標本での挙動を数値実験で検証する.時間があれば,非対称安定レヴィ過程の場合に関して分かっている事柄についても触れる.

Orbifold Cohomology of Wreath Product Orbifolds and
Cohomological HyperKahler Resolution Conjecture
[ Abstract ]
Chen-Ruan orbifold cohomology ring was introduced in 2000 as
the degree zero genus zero orbifold Gromov-Witten invariants with
three marked points. We will review its construction in the case of
global quotient orbifolds, following Fantechi-Gottsche and
Jarvis-Kaufmann-Kimura. We will describe the orbifold cohomology of
wreath product orbifolds and explain its application to Ruan's
cohomological hyperKahler resolution conjecture.

Combable functions, quasimorphisms, and the central limit theorem
(joint with Koji Fujiwara)

[ Abstract ]
Quasimorphisms on groups are dual to stable commutator length,
and detect extremal phenomena in topology and dynamics. In typical groups
(even in a free group) stable commutator length is very difficult to
calculate, because the space of quasimorphisms is too large to study
directly without adding more structure.
In this talk, we show that a large class of quasimorphisms - the so-called
"counting quasimorphisms" on word-hyperbolic groups - can be effectively
described using simple machines called finite state automata. From this,
and from the ergodic theory of finite directed graphs, one can deduce a
number of properties about the statistical distribution of the values of a
counting quasimorphism on elements of the group.

The Lipschitz truncation method
[ Abstract ]
We study the existence of weak solutions to the incompressible $p$-Navier Stokes equations. This system can be used to describe the flow of honey, ketchup, blood, suspensions, polymers, and glaciers. We are interested in small values of $p$, where the method of monotone operators fails. We establish weak solutions by means of the Lipschitz truncation technique, where Sobolev Functions are approximated by Lipschitz functions in a special way. We apply the technique also to electrorheological fluids, where the exponent $p$ depends on the electric field.

Two invariants of pseudo--Anosov mapping classes: hyperbolic volume vs dilatation
(joint work with Mitsuhiko Takasawa)
[ Abstract ]
We concern two invariants of pseudo-Anosov mapping classes.
One is the dilatation of pseudo--Anosov maps and the other is the volume
of mapping tori. To study how two invariants are related, fixing a surface
we represent a mapping class by using the standard generator set and compute
these two for all pseudo--Anosov mapping classes with up to some word length.
In the talk, we observe two properties:

(1) The ratio of the topological entropy (i.e. logarithm of the dilatation) to
the volume is bounded from below by some positive constant which only
depends on the surface.

(2) The conjugacy class having the minimal dilatation reaches the minimal volume.

On the observation (1), in case of the mapping class group of a once--punctured
torus, we give a concrete lower bound of the ratio.

On the theory of Bessel functions associated with root systems
[ Abstract ]
The theory of spherical functions on Riemannian symmetric spaces G/K and on non-compactly causal symmetric spaces G/H has a long and rich history. In this talk we will show how one can use a limit transition approach to obtain generalized Bessel functions on flat symmetric spaces via the spherical functions. A similar approach can be applied to the theory of Heckman-Opdam hypergeometric functions to investigate generalized Bessel functions related to arbitrary root system. We conclude the talk by giving a conjecture about the nature and order of the singularities of the Bessel functions related to non-compactly causal symmetric spaces.

Empirical likelihood method for time series analysis
[ Abstract ]
For a class of vector-valued non-Gaussian stationary processes with unkown parameters, we develop the empirical likelihood approach which was proposed in the i.i.d. setting. In the time series analysis it is known that Whittle likelihood is one of fundamental tools to get a good estimator of unknown parameters and that the score functions are asymptotically normal. Motivated by the Whittle likelihood, we take its score as an estimating function and obtain the asymptotic distribution of our test statistic. Since the fitted spectral model may be different from true spectral structure, the results enable us to construct confidence rigions for various important time series parameters without knowing true spectral structure. We also consider the approach to a minimum contrast estimation and Cressie-Read power-divergence statistic. Numerical studies are introduced and illuminate some interesting features of the empirical approach.

The conjecture of Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer is misleading
[ Abstract ]
All values of zeta and L-functions at integral points should be given in terms of products and quotients of Euler characteristics, and the order of the zeroes and poles at these
points should be given by the sum and difference of the ranks of
corresponding finitely generated abelian groups.

Projective varieties with nef anti-canonical divisors
[ Abstract ]
Projective varieties with nef anti-canonical divisors appear naturally in the minimal model program and the theory of classification of higher-dimensional algebraic varieties. In this talk we describe a comprehensive approach to birational geometry of log canonical pair (X, D) with nef anti-canonical class -(K_X+D). In particular, We present two theorems on the birational structure of the varieties. We will also discuss some recent results and new aspects of the subject.
