Magnetic Schroedinger operators and twisted crossed product

**Serge Richard**(Univ. Lyon 1)Magnetic Schroedinger operators and twisted crossed product

[ Abstract ]

During this seminar, we shall study spectral properties of generalized

magnetic Schroedinger operators H(B,V) with anisotropic magnetic field B

and scalar potential V. The essential spectrum of such operators is

expressed as a union of spectra of some asymptotic operators supported by

the quasi-orbits of a suitable dynamical system. A localization property

of the functional calculus of H(B,V) will also be presented. It directly

implies a non-propagation result for the unitary group generated by this

operator. The proofs rely on the use of twisted crossed product

C*-algebras. Twisted dynamical systems and their corresponding algebras

will be introduced and the natural link with magnetic Schroedinger

operators will be clearly established.

Connecion problems for Fuchsian differential equations free from accessory parameters

http://akagi.ms.u-tokyo.ac.jp/seminar.html

**大島 利雄**(東京大学)Connecion problems for Fuchsian differential equations free from accessory parameters

[ Abstract ]

The classification of Fuchsian equations without accessory parameters was formulated as Deligne-Simpson problem, which was solved by Katz and they are studied by Haraoka and Yokoyama.

If the number of singular points of such equations is three, they have no geometric moduli.

We give a unified connection formula for such differential equations as a conjecture and show that it is true for the equations whose local monodromy at a singular point has distinct eigenvalues.

Other Fuchsian differential equations with accessory parameters and hypergeometric functions with multi-variables are also discussed.

On Gabber's refined uniformization theorem and applications

**Luc Illusie**(パリ南大学)On Gabber's refined uniformization theorem and applications

[ Abstract ]

Gabber has announced the following theorem : if X is a noetherian quasi-excellent scheme, Z a nowhere dense closed subset, and l a prime number invertible on X, then, locally for the topology on schemes of finite type over X generated, up to thickenings, by proper surjective maps which are generically finite of degree prime to l and by Nisnevich covers, the pair (X,Z) can be uniformized, i. e. replaced by a pair (Y,D), where Y is regular and D a strict normal crossings divisor. The whole proof is not yet written. I will give an overview. The plan is :

1. Statement and reduction to the complete local case (techniques of approximation)

2. Refined partial algebraization of complete local noetherian rings

3. Reduction to the equivariant log regular case (de Jong's techniques)

4. Making actions very tame, end of proof.

If time permits, I will show how the above theorem provides a short proof of Gabber's finiteness theorem for higher direct images of constructible sheaves of torsion prime to the characteristics by morphisms of finite type between quasi-excellent noetherian schemes.

Potential theory of funnels and wounds

**Torbjorn Lundh**(Chalmers & Göteborg University)Potential theory of funnels and wounds

[ Abstract ]

We will talk about a result concerning Green functions, namely the so called 3G-inequality, which I studied together with H. Aikawa. The focus of the talk will be on the description of the way to that result, where we among other tools used numerical methods to get a better intuitive understanding the situation. We will also discuss a possible potential theoretic view-point of an ancient wound healing question.

[ Abstract ]

Gabber has announced the following theorem : if X is a noetherian quasi-excellent scheme, Z a nowhere dense closed subset, and l a prime number invertible on X, then, locally for the topology on schemes of finite type over X generated, up to thickenings, by proper surjective maps which are generically finite of degree prime to l and by Nisnevich covers, the pair (X,Z) can be uniformized, i. e. replaced by a pair (Y,D), where Y is regular and D a strict normal crossings divisor.

Equidistribution theorems in Arakelov geometry

**Antoine Chambert-Loir**(Universite de Rennes 1)Equidistribution theorems in Arakelov geometry

[ Abstract ]

The proof of Bogomolov's conjecture by Zhang made a crucial use

of an equidistribution property for the Galois orbits of points of small

heights in Abelian varieties defined over number fields.

Such an equidistribution property is proved using a method invented

by Szpiro, Ullmo and Zhang, and makes use of Arakelov theory.

This equidistribution theorem takes place in the complex torus

associated to the Abelian variety. I will show how a similar

equidistribution theorem can be proven for the p-adic topology ;

we have to use Berkovich space. Thanks to recent results of Yuan

about `big line bundles' in Arakelov geometry, the situation

is now very well understood.

Statistical analysis of fragmentation chains

http://www.ms.u-tokyo.ac.jp/~kengok/statseminar/2007/15.html

**Marc HOFFMANN**(Universite Paris-est Marne la vallee)Statistical analysis of fragmentation chains

[ Abstract ]

We address statistical inference in self-similar conservative fragmentation chains, when only observations on the size of the fragments below a given threshold are available. (Possibly, the measurement of the fragments themselves are subject to further systematic experimental noise.) This framework, introduced by Bertoin and Martinez is motivated by mineral crushing in mining industry. We compute upper and lower rates of estimation for several functionals of the dislocation measure, both in a semi-parametric and a non-parametric framework. The underlying estimated object is the step distribution of the random walk associated to a randomly tagged fragment that evolves along the genealogical tree representation of the fragmentation process. We establish a formal link with the statistical problem of estimating the overshoot of the distribution as the crossing level goes to infinity with the size of the dataset; in particular the difficulty of the estimation problem in the non-parametric case is comparable to ill-posed linear inverse problems of order 1 in signal denoising.

[ Abstract ]

Let $M_{n,k}$ denote the vector space of real $n\\times k$ matrices.

The matrix motion group is the semidirect product $(\\text O(n)\\times \\text O(k))\\ltimes M_{n,k}$, and is the Cartan motion group

associated with the real Grassmannian $G_{n,n+k}$.

The matrix Radon transform is an

integral transform associated with a double fibration involving

homogeneous spaces of this group. We provide a set of

algebraically independent generators of the subalgebra of its

universal enveloping algebra invariant under the Adjoint

representation. One of the elements of this set characterizes the range of the matrix Radon transform.

Control of quantum systems described by Schrodinger equation is considered. Feedback control laws are developed for the orbit tracking via a controled Hamiltonian. Asymptotic tracking properties of the feedback laws are analyzed. Numerical integrations via time-splitting are also analyzed and used to demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed feedback laws.

Inverse boundary value problems for the Schrodinger equation with time-dependent electromagnetic potentials and the Aharonov-Bohm effect

**Gregory Eskin**(UCLA)Inverse boundary value problems for the Schrodinger equation with time-dependent electromagnetic potentials and the Aharonov-Bohm effect

[ Abstract ]

We consider the determination of the time-dependent magnetic and electric potentials (modulo gauge transforamtions) by the boundary measurements in domains with obstacles. We use the geometric optics and the tomography of broken rays. The presence of the obstacles leads to the Aharonov-Bohm effect caused by the magnetic and electric fluxes.

elements of the corresponding Weyl group of infinite rank. These

group,

these polynomials are equal to the factorial analogues of Schur $Q$- or

Plato's Cave: what we still don't know about generic projections

**D. Eisenbud**(Univ. of California, Berkeley)Plato's Cave: what we still don't know about generic projections

[ Abstract ]

Riemann Surfaces were first studied algebraically by first projecting them into the complex projective plan; later the same idea was applied to surfaces and higher dimensional varieties, projecting them to hypersurfaces. How much damage is done in this process? For example, what can the fibers of a generic linear projection look like? This is pretty easy for smooth curves and surfaces (though there are still open questions), not so easy in the higher-dimensional case. I'll explain some of what's known, including recent work of mine with Roya Beheshti, Joe Harris, and Craig Huneke.
