Uwe Jannsen
On a conjecture of Bloch and Kato, and a local analogue.
[ Abstract ]
In their seminal paper on Tamagawa Numbers of motives,
Bloch and Kato introduced a notion of motivic pairs, without
loss of generality over the rational numbers, which should
satisfy certain properties (P1) to (P4). The last property
postulates the existence of a Galois stable lattice T in the
associated adelic Galois representation V such that for each
prime p the fixed module of the inertia group of Q_p of
V/T is l-divisible for almost all primes l different from p.

I postulate an analogous local conjecture and show that it
implies the global conjecture.

Horia Cornean (Aalborg University, Denmark)
On the trivialization of Bloch bundles and the construction of localized Wannier functions (English)
[ Abstract ]
We shall present an introductory lecture on the trivialization of Bloch bundles and its physical implications. Simply stated, the main question we want to answer is the following: given a rank $N\geq 1$ family of orthogonal projections $P(k)$ where $k\in \mathbb{R}^d$, $P(\cdot)$ is smooth and $\mathbb{Z}^d$-periodic, is it possible to construct an orthonormal basis of its range which consists of vectors which are both smooth and periodic in $k$? We shall explain in detail the connection with solid state physics. This is joint work with I. Herbst and G. Nenciu.

Ken'ichi Yoshida (The University of Tokyo)
Union of 3-punctured spheres in a hyperbolic 3-manifold (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
An essential 3-punctured sphere in a hyperbolic 3-manifold is isotopic to a totally geodesic one. We will classify the topological types for components of union of the totally geodesic 3-punctured spheres in an orientable hyperbolic 3-manifold. There are special types each of which appears in precisely one manifold.

Introduction to resurgence on the example of saddle-node singularities (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Divergent power series naturally appear when solving such an elementary differential equation as x^2 dy = (x+y) dx, which is the simplest example of saddle-node singularity. I will discuss the formal classification of saddle-node singularities and illustrate on that case Ecalle's resurgence theory, which allows one to analyse the divergence of the formal solutions. One can also deal with resonant saddle-node singularities with one more dimension, a situation which covers the local study at infinity of some Painlevé equations.

Ciprian Tudor (Université Lille 1)
On the determinant of the Malliavin matrix and density of random vector on Wiener chaos

[ Abstract ]
A well-known problem in Malliavin calculus concerns the relation between the determinant of the Malliavin matrix of a random vector and the determinant of its covariance matrix. We give an explicit relation between these two determinants for couples of random vectors of multiple integrals. In particular, if the multiple integrals are of the same order, we prove that two random variables in the same Wiener chaos either admit a joint density, either are proportional and that the result is not true for random variables in Wiener chaoses of different orders.

Algebraic Geometry Seminar

15:30-17:00   Room #122 (Graduate School of Math. Sci. Bldg.)
Karl Schwede (University of Utah)
Etale fundamental groups of F-regular schemes (English)
[ Abstract ]
I will discuss recent work studying etale fundamental groups of the regular locus of F-regular schemes. I will describe how to use F-signature to bound the size of the fundamental group of an F-regular scheme, similar to a result of Xu. I will then discuss a recent extension showing that every F-regular scheme X has a finite cover Y, etale over the regular lcous of X, so that the etale fundamental groups of Y and the regular locus of Y agree. This is analogous to results of Greb-Kebekus-Peternell.
All the work discussed is joint with Carvajal-Rojas and Tucker or with with Bhatt, Carvajal-Rojas, Graf and Tucker.

Hayato Chiba (Kyushu University)
Generalized spectral theory and its application to coupled oscillators on networks (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
For a system of large coupled oscillators on networks, we show that the transition from the de-synchronous state to the synchronization occurs as the coupling strength increases. For the proof, the generalized spectral theory of linear operators is employed.

Alfred Ramani (IMNC, Universite de Paris 7 et 11)
Who cares about integrability ? (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
I will start my talk with an introduction to integrability of continuous systems. Why is it important? Is it possible to give a definition of integrability which will satisfy everybody? (Short answer: No). I will then present the most salient discoveries of integrable systems, from Newton to Toda. Next I will address the question of discrete integrability. This will lead naturally to the question of discretisation (of continuous systems) and its importance in modelling. I will deal with the construction of integrable discretisations of continuous integrable systems and introduce the singularity confinement discrete integrability criterion. The final part of my talk will be devoted to discrete Painlevé equations. Due to obvious time constraints I will concentrate on one special class of these equations, namely those associated to the E8 affine Weyl group. I will present a succinct summary of our recent results as well as indications for future investigations.

FMSP Lectures

10:25-12:10   Room #126 (Graduate School of Math. Sci. Bldg.)
Arthur Ogus (University of California, Berkeley)
Introduction to Logarithmic Geometry V (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Logarithmic Geometry was invented (or discovered) in the 1980's, with crucial ideas contributed by Deligne, Faltings, Fontaine, Illusie, and especially K. Kato. It provides a systematic framework for the study of the related phenomena of compactification and degeneration in algebraic and arithmetic geometry, with applications to number theory. I will attempt to explain the main ideas and foundations of Kato's version of log geometry, with an emphasis on its geometric and topological aspects.

De Giorgi conjecture and minimal surfaces for integro-differential operators (English)
[ Abstract ]
I will review the classical De Giorgi conjecture and its link with minimal surfaces. Then I will move on recent results for flatness of level sets of solutions of semi linear equations involving anomalous diffusion. First I will deal with the fractional laplacian; second with quite general integral operators in 2 dimensions.

Sullivan's coproduct on the reduced loop homology (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
In string topology, Sullivan introduced a coproduct on the reduced loop homology and showed that the homology has an infinitesimal bialgebra structure with respect to the coproduct and Chas-Sullivan loop product. In this talk, I will give a homotopy theoretic description of Sullivan's coproduct. By using the description, we obtain some computational examples of the structure over the rational number field. Moreover, I will also discuss a based loop space version of the coproduct.

Sotirios E. Notaris (National and Kapodistrian University of Athens)
Gauss-Kronrod quadrature formulae (English)
[ Abstract ]
In 1964, the Russian mathematician A.S. Kronrod, in an attempt to estimate practically the error term of the well-known Gauss quadrature formula, presented a new quadrature rule, which since then bears his name. It turns out that the new rule was related to some polynomials that Stieltjes developed some 70 years earlier, through his work on continued fractions and the moment problem. We give an overview of the Gauss-Kronrod quadrature formulae, which are interesting from both the mathematical and the applicable point of view.
The talk will be expository without requiring any previous knowledge of numerical integration.
