Deformation of holomorphic quadratic differentials and its applications (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
Quadratic differentials are standard and important objects in Teichmuller theory. The deformation space (moduli space) of the quadratic differentials is applied to many fields of mathematics. In this talk, I will develop the deformation of quadratic differentials. Indeed, following pioneer works by A. Douady, J. Hubbard, H. Masur and W. Veech, we describe the infinitesimal deformations in the odd (co)homology groups on the double covering spaces defined from the square roots of the quadratic differentials. We formulate the decomposition theorem for the infinitesimal deformations with keeping in mind of the induced deformation of the moduli of underlying complex structures. As applications, we obtain the Levi form of the Teichmuller distance, and an alternate proof of the Krushkal formula on the pluricomplex Green function on the Teichmuller space.

Gradient flow of the Ding functional
[ Abstract ]
This is a joint work with T. Collins and R. Takahashi. We introduce the flow in the title to study the stability of a Fano manifold. The first result is the long-time existence of the flow. In the stable case it then converges to the Kähler-Einstein metric. In general the flow is expected to produce the optimally destabilizing degeneration of a Fano manifold. We confirm this expectation in the toric case.

Algebraic curves and modular forms of low degree (English)
[ Abstract ]
For genus 2 and 3 modular forms are intimately connected with the moduli of curves of genus 2 and 3. We give an explicit way to describe such modular forms for genus 2 and 3 using invariant theory and give some applications. This is based on joint work with Fabien Clery and Carel Faber.

Regularity for diffuse reflection boundary problem to the stationary linearized Boltzmann equation in a convex domain
(English)
[ Abstract ]
We consider the diffuse reflection boundary problem for the linearized Boltzmann equation for hard sphere potential, cutoff hard potential, or Maxwellian molecular gases in a $C^2$ strictly convex bounded domain. We obtain a pointwise estimate for the derivative of the solution provided the boundary temperature is bounded differentiable and the solution is bounded. Velocity averaging effect for stationary solutions as well as observations in geometry are used in this research.

Perfectoid test ideals (English)
[ Abstract ]
Inspired by the recent solution of the direct summand conjecture
of Andre and Bhatt, we introduce perfectoid multiplier/test ideals in mixed
characteristic. As an application, we obtain a uniform bound on the growth
of symbolic powers in regular local rings of mixed characteristic analogous
to results of Ein--Lazarsfeld--Smith and Hochster--Huneke in equal
characteristic. This is joint work with Karl Schwede.

Mathematical analysis for HBV model and HBV-HDV coinfection model (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
The hepatitis beta virus (HBV) and hepatitis delta viurs (HDV)
are two common forms of viral hepatitis. However HDV is dependent
on coinfection with HBV since replication of HDV requires the hepati-
tis B surface antigen (HBsAg) which can only been produced by HBV.
Here we start with analyzing HBV only model, the dynamics between
healthy cells, HBV infected cells and free HBV.We show that a postive
equilbrium exsits and it's globally asmptotically stable for R0 > 1, an
infection free equilibrium is globally asymptotically stable for R0 < 1.
Then we introduce HDV to form a coinfection model which contains
three more variables, HDV infected cells, coinfected cells and free HDV.
Additionally, we investigate two coinfection models, one without and
one with treatment by oral drugs which are valid for HBV only. We
consider several durgs with variable eciencies. As a result, compari-
son of model simulations indicate that treatment is necessary to taking
contiously for choric infection.

Javier Fresán (École polytechnique)
Exponential motives (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
What motives are to algebraic varieties, exponential motives are to pairs (X, f) consisting of an algebraic variety over some field k and a regular function f on X. In characteristic zero, one is naturally led to define the de Rham and rapid decay cohomology of such pairs when dealing with numbers like the special values of the gamma function or the Euler constant gamma which are not expected to be periods in the usual sense. Over finite fields, the étale and rigid cohomology groups of (X, f) play a pivotal role in the study of exponential sums.
Following ideas of Katz, Kontsevich, and Nori, we construct a Tannakian category of exponential motives when k is a subfield of the complex numbers. This allows one to attach to exponential periods a Galois group that conjecturally governs all algebraic relations among them. The category is equipped with a Hodge realisation functor with values in mixed Hodge modules over the affine line and, if k is a number field, with an étale realisation related to exponential sums. This is a joint work with Peter Jossen (ETH).

An approach to numerical solution to inverse source problems with nonlocal conditions (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
We consider two inverse source problems for a parabolic equation under nonlocal, final, and boundary conditions. A numerical method is proposed to solve the inverse source problems, which is based on the use of the method of lines. The initial problems are reduced to a system of ordinary differential equations with unknown parameters. To solve this system, we propose an approach based on the sweep method type. We present the results of numerical experiments on test problems. This is joint work with Prof. K. Aida-zade.

Stochastic Three-Dimensional Navier-Stokes Equations + Waves: Averaging, Convergence, Regularity and Nonlinear Dynamics (English)
[ Abstract ]
We establish multi-scale stochastic averaging, convergence and regularity theorems in a general framework by bootstrapping from global regularity of the averaged stochastic resonant equations. The averaged covariance operator couples stochastic and wave effects. We also present theoretical results for 3D nonlinear dynamics.

On the self-intersection of singular sets of maps and the signature defect (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
Let $M$ be a closed oriented $n$-dimensional manifold. We give a geometric proof of that the $k$-times self-intersection of singular set of a Morin map from $M$ to $R^p$ coincides with the corank $k$ singular set of any generic map from $M$ to $R^{p+k-1}$ as homology classes with $Z/2$ coefficient ($n>p+k-2$). As an application we give a description of the signature defect of framed 3-manifold from the point of view of singular sets of maps.

Takeo Ohsawa (Nagoya University)
Nishino's rigidity theorem and questions on locally pseudoconvex maps
[ Abstract ]
Nishino proved in 1969 that locally Stein maps with fibers $\cong \mathbb{C}$ are locally trivial. Yamaguchi gave an alternate proof of Nishino's theorem which later developed into a the theory of variations of the Bergman kernel. The proofs of Nishino and Yamaguchi will be reviewed and questions suggested by the result will be discussed. A new application of the $L^2$ extension theorem will be also presented in this context.

Derivations and cohomologies of Lipschitz algebras (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
For a compact metric space M, Lip(M) denotes the Banach algebra of all complex-valued Lipschitz functions on M. Motivated by a classical work of de Leeuw, we define a compact, not necessarily metrizable, Hausdorff space \hat{M} so that each point of \hat{M} induces a derivation on Lip(M). To some extent, \hat{M} may be regarded as "the space of directions." We study, by an elementary method, the space of derivations and continuous Hochschild cohomologies (in the sense of B.E. Johnson and A.Y. Helemskii) of Lip(M) with coefficients C(\hat{M}) and C(M). The results so obtained show that the behavior of Lip(M) is (naturally) rather different than that of the algebra of smooth/C^1 functions on M.

Ascending chain condition for F-pure thresholds on a fixed strongly F-regular germ (English or Japanese)
[ Abstract ]
For a germ of a variety in positive characteristic and a non-zero ideal sheaf on the variety, we can define the F-pure threshold of the ideal by using Frobenius morphisms, which measures the singularities of the pair. In this talk, I will show that the set of all F-pure thresholds on a fixed strongly F-regular germ satisfies the ascending chain condition. This is a positive characteristic analogue of the "ascending chain condition for log canonical thresholds" in characteristic 0, which was recently proved by Hacon, McKernan, and Xu.

Some results for range of random walk on graph with spectral dimension two (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
We consider the range of random walk on graphs with spectral dimension two. We show that a certain weak law of large numbers hold if a recurrent graph satisfies a uniform condition. We construct a recurrent graph such that the uniform condition holds but appropriately scaled expectations fluctuate. Our result is applicable to showing LILs for lamplighter random walks in the case that the spectral dimension of the underlying graph is two.

Diffeomorphism Groups of One-Manifolds (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Let a>=2 be a real number and k = [a]. We denote by Diff^a(S^1) the group of C^k diffeomorphisms such that the k--th derivatives are Hölder--continuous of exponent (a - k). For each real number a>=2, we prove that there exists a finitely generated group G < Diff^a(S^1) such that G admits no injective homomorphisms into Diff^b(S^1) for any b>a. This is joint work with Thomas Koberda.

Kodaira vanishing theorem for Witt canonical sheaves (English)
[ Abstract ]
We establish an analogue of the Kodaira vanishing theorem in terms of de Rham-Witt complex. More specifically, given a smooth projective variety over a perfect field of positive characteristic, we prove that the higher cohomologies vanish for the tensor product of the Witt canonical sheaf and the Teichmuller lift of an ample invertible sheaf.

Hybrid discontinuous Galerkin methods for nearly incompressible elasticity problems
(Japanese)
[ Abstract ]
A Hybrid discontinuous Galerkin (HDG) method for linear elasticity problems has been introduced by Kikuchi et al. [Theor. Appl. Mech. Japan, vol.57, 395--404 (2009)], [RIMS Kokyuroku, vol.1971, 28--46 (2015)]. We consider to seek numerical solutions of the plane strain problem by the HDG method, especially in the case when materials are nearly incompressible, that is, when the first Lam\'e parameter $\lambda$ is large. In this talk, we consider two cases when the HDG method uses a lifting term and does not use it. When the lifting term is used, the method can be free of volumetric locking. On the other hand, when the lifting term is not used, we have to take an interior penalty parameter of order $\lambda$ as $\lambda$ tends to infinity, in order to guarantee the coercivity of the bilinear form. Taking such an interior penalty parameter causes volumetric locking phenomena. We thus conclude that the lifting term is essential for avoiding the volumetric locking in the HDG method.

Random Recursive Tree, Branching Markov Chains and Urn Models (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
In this talk, we will establish a connection between random recursive tree, branching Markov chain and urn model. Exploring the connection further we will derive fairly general scaling limits for urn models with colors indexed by a Polish Space and show that several exiting results on classical/non-classical urn schemes can be easily derived out of such general asymptotic. We will further show that the connection can be used to derive exact asymptotic for the sizes of the connected components of a "random recursive forest", obtained by removing the root of a random recursive tree.

On the proof of the optimal $L^2$ extension theorem by Berndtsson-Lempert and related results
[ Abstract ]
We will present the recent progress on the Ohsawa-Takegoshi $L^2$ extension theorem. A version of the Ohsawa-Takegoshi $L^2$ extension with a optimal estimate has been proved by Blocki and Guan-Zhou. After that, by Berndtsson-Lempert, a new proof of the optimal $L^2$ extension theorem was given. In this talk, we will show an optimal $L^2$ extension theorem for jets of holomorphic functions by the Berndtsson-Lempert method. We will also explain the recent result about jet extensions by McNeal-Varolin. Their proof is also based on Berndtsson-Lempert, but there are some differences.

The space of short ropes and the classifying space of the space of long knots (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
We prove affirmatively the conjecture raised by J. Mostovoy; the space of short ropes is weakly homotopy equivalent to the classifying space of the topological monoid (or category) of long knots in R^3. We make use of techniques developed by S. Galatius and O. Randal-Williams to construct a manifold space model of the classifying space of the space of long knots, and we give an explicit map from the space of short ropes to the model in a geometric way. This is joint work with Syunji Moriya (Osaka Prefecture University).

Optimal isoperimetric inequalities for surfaces in any codimension
in Cartan-Hadamard manifolds (English)
[ Abstract ]
Let $(M^n,g)$ be simply connected, complete, with non-positive sectional
curvatures, and $\Sigma$ a 2-dimensional surface in $M^n$. Let $S$ be an area
minimising 3-current such that $\partial S = \Sigma$. We use a weak mean
curvature flow, obtained via elliptic regularisation, starting from
$\Sigma$, to show that $S$ satisfies the optimal Euclidean isoperimetric
inequality: $|S| \leq 1/(6\sqrt{\pi}) |\Sigma|^{3/2}$. We also obtain the
optimal estimate in case the sectional curvatures of $M$ are bounded from
above by $\kappa < 0$ and characterise the case of equality. The proof
follows from an almost monotonicity of a suitable isoperimetric
difference along the approximating flows in one dimension higher.

Orbifold rational connectedness (English)
[ Abstract ]
The first step in the decomposition by canonical fibrations with fibres of `signed' canonical bundle of an arbitrary complex projective manifolds $X$ is its `rational quotient' (also called `MRC' fibration): it has rationally connected fibres and non-uniruled base. In general, the further steps (such as the Moishezon-Iitaka fibration) of this decomposition will require the consideration of 'orbifold base' of fibrations in order to deal with the multiple fibres (as seen already for elliptic surfaces). One thus needs to work in the larger category of (smooth) `orbifold pairs' $(X,D)$ to achieve this decomposition. The aim of the talk is thus to introduce the notions of Rational Connectedness and 'rational quotient' in this context, by means of suitable equivalent notions of negativity for the orbifold cotangent bundle (suitably defined. When $D$ is reduced, this is just the usual Log-version). The expected equivalence with connecting families of `orbifold rational curves' remains however presently open.
