Pathologies on ruled surfaces in positive characteristic
[ Abstract ]
We discuss some pathologies of log varieties in positive characteristic. Mainly, we show that on ruled surfaces there are counterexamples of several logarithmic type theorems. On the other hand, we also give a characterization of the counterexamples of the Kawamata-Viehweg vanishing theorem on a geometrically ruled surface by means of the Tango invariant of the base curve.

Harish-Chandra expansion of the matrix coefficients of $P_J$ Principal series Representation of $Sp(2,R)$
[ Abstract ]
Asymptotic expansion of the matrix coefficents of class-1 principal series representation was considered by Harish-Chandra. The coefficient of the leading exponent of the expansion is called the c-function which plays an important role in the harmonic analysis on the Lie group.

In this talk, we consider the Harish-Chandra expansion of the matrix coefficients of the standard representation which is the parabolic induction with respect to a non-minimal parabolic subgroup of $Sp(2,R)$.

This is the joint study with Professor T. Oda.

Realization of twisted $K$-theory and
finite-dimensional approximation of Fredholm operators
[ Abstract ]
A problem in twisted $K$-theory is to realize twisted $K$-groups generally by means of finite-dimensional geometric objects, like vector bundles. I would like to talk about an approach toward the problem by means of Mikio Furuta's generalized vector bundles. By using a twisted version of the generalized vector bundle and a finite-dimensional approximation of Fredholm operators, I construct a group into which there exists a natural injection from the twisted $K$-group twisted by any third integral cohomology class.

Existence problem of compact Clifford-Klein forms of the infinitesimal homogeneous space of indefinite Stiefle manifolds

[ Abstract ]
The existence problem of compact Clifford-Klein forms is important in the study of discrete groups. There are several open problems on it, even in the reductive cases, which is most studied. For a homogeneous space of reductive type, one can define its `infinitesimal' homogeneous space.
This homogeneous space is easier to consider the existence problem of compact Clifford-Klein forms.
In this talk, we especially consider the infinitesimal homogeneous spaces of indefinite Stiefel manifolds. And, we reduce the existence problem of compact Clifford-Klein forms to certain algebraic problem, which was already studied from other motivation.

Existence Problem of Compact Locally Symmetric Spaces
[ Abstract ]
The local to global study of geometries was a major trend of 20th century geometry, with remarkable developments achieved particularly in Riemannian geometry. In contrast, in areas such as Lorentz geometry, familiar to us as the space-time of relativity theory, and more generally in pseudo-Riemannian geometry, as well as in various other kinds of geometry (symplectic, complex geometry, ...), surprising little is known about global properties of the geometry even if we impose a locally homogeneous structure.

In this talk, I will give a survey on the recent developments on the question about how the local geometric structure affects the global nature of non-Riemannian manifolds with emphasis on the existence problem of compact models of locally symmetric spaces.

Rearrangement inequalities and isoperimetric eigenvalue problems for second-order differential operators
[ Abstract ]
The talk is concerned with various optimization results for the principal eigenvalues of general second-order elliptic operators in divergence form with Dirichlet boundary condition in bounded domains of R^n. We show that, to each operator in a given domain, we can associate a radially symmetric operator in the ball with the same Lebesgue measure, with a smaller principal eigenvalue. The constraints on the coefficients are of integral, pointwise or geometric types.

The results are new even for symmetric operators or in dimension 1. In particular, we generalize the Rayleigh-Faber-Krahn inequality for the principal eigenvalue of the Dirichlet Laplacian. The proofs use a new rearrangement technique, different from the Schwarz symmetrization. This talk is based on a joint work with N. Nadirashvili and E. Russ.

The Quantum Knizhnik-Zamolodchikov Equation
and Non-symmetric Macdonald Polynomials
[ Abstract ]
We construct special solutions of the quantum Knizhnik-Zamolodchikov equation
on the tensor product of the vector representation of
the quantum algebra of type $A_{N-1}$.
They are constructed from non-symmetric Macdonald polynomials
through the action of the affine Hecke algebra.
As special cases,
(i) the matrix element of the vertex operators
of level one is reproduced, and
(ii) we give solutions of level $\\frac{N+1}{N}-N$.
(ii) is a generalization of the solution of
level $-\\frac{1}{2}$ by V.Pasquier and me.

This is a jount work with Y.Takeyama.

Dynamics on diffeomorphism groups: shocks of the Burgers equation and hydrodynamical instability
[ Abstract ]
We describe a simple relation between curvatures of the group of volume-preserving diffeomorphisms (responsible for Lagrangian instability of ideal fluids via Arnold's approach) and the generation of shocks for potential solutions of the inviscid
Burgers equation (important in mass transport). For this we characterize focal points of the group of volume-preserving diffeomorphism, regarded as a submanifold in all diffeomorphisms and the corresponding conjugate points along geodesics in the Wasserstein space of densities.

Further, we consider the non-holonomic optimal transport problem,
related to the following non-holonomic version of the classical Moser theorem: given a bracket-generating distribution on a manifold two volume forms of equal total volume can be isotoped by the flow of a vector field tangent to this distribution.

The numerical treatment of pricing early exercise options under L'evy processes
[ Abstract ]
In this presentation we will discuss the pricing of American and Bermudan options under L'evy process dynamics.

Two different approaches will be discussed: First of all, modelling with differential operators gives rise to the numerical solution of a partial-integro differential equation for obtaining European option prices. For American prices a linear complementarity problem with the partial integro-differential operator needs to be solved. We outline the difficulties and possible solutions in this context.

At the same time we would also like to present a different pricing approach based on numerical integration and the fast Fourier Transform. Both approaches are compared in terms of accuracy and efficiency.

Acoustic Modeling and Osteoporotic Evaluation of Bone
[ Abstract ]
In this talk we discuss the modeling of the acoustic response of cancellous bone using the methods of homogenization.
This can lead to Biot type equations or more generalized equations. We develop the effective acoustic equations for cancellous bone. It is assumed that the bone matrix is elastic and the interstitial blood-marrow can be modeled as a Navier-Stokes system.
We also discuss the use of the Biot model and consider its applicability to cancellous bone. One of the questions this talk addresses is whether the clinical experiments customarily performed can be used to determine the parameters of the Biot or other bone models. A parameter recovery algorithm which uses parallel processing is developed and tested.

A semidiscrete scheme for the Perona Malik equation
[ Abstract ]
We discuss the convergence of the spatial semidiscrete scheme for the one-dimensional Perona-Malik equation. If the initial datum is 1-Lipschitz out of a finite number of jump points, we haracterize the problem satisfied by the limit solution. In the general case, we construct a solution by a careful inspection of the behaviour of the approximating solutions in a space-time neighbourhood of the jump points.
