Yoshihiko Shinomiya (Shizuoka University)
Veech groups of Veech surfaces and periodic points
(日本語)
[ Abstract ]
Flat surfaces are surfaces with singular Euclidean structures. The Veech group of a flat surface is the group consisting of all matrices inducing affine mappings of the flat surface. In this talk, we give relations between some geometrical values of flat surfaces and the signatures of Veech groups as Fuchsian groups. As an application of these relations, we estimate the numbers of periodic points of certain flat surfaces.

Rank 2 weak Fano bundles on cubic 3-folds (日本語)
[ Abstract ]
A vector bundle on a projective variety is called weak Fano if its
projectivization is a weak Fano manifold. This is a generalization of
Fano bundles.
In this talk, we will obtain a classification of rank 2 weak Fano
bundles on a nonsingular cubic hypersurface in a projective 4-space.
Specifically, we will show that there exist rank 2 indecomposable weak
Fano bundles on it.

Unitary spherical representations of Drinfeld doubles (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
It is known that the Drinfeld double of the quantized
enveloping algebra of a semisimple Lie algebra looks similar to the
quantized enveloping algebra of the complexification of the Lie algebra.
In this talk, we investigate the unitary representation theory of such
Drinfeld double via its analogy to that of the complex Lie group.
We also talk on an application to operator algebras.

Takeyoshi Kogiso (Josai University)
Local functional equations of Clifford quartic forms and homaloidal EKP-polynomials
[ Abstract ]
It is known that one can associate local functional equation to the irreducible relative invariant of an irreducible regular prehomogeneous vector spaces. We construct Clifford quartic forms that cannot obtained from prehomogeneous vector spaces, but, for which one can associate local functional equations. The characterization of polynomials which satisfy local functional equations is an interesting problem. In relation to this characterization problem (in a more general form), Etingof, Kazhdan and Polishchuk raised a conjecture. We make a counter example of this conjecture from Clifford quartic forms. (This is based on the joint work with F.Sato)

Tuesday Seminar on Topology

17:00-18:30   Room #056 (Graduate School of Math. Sci. Bldg.)
Ken'ichi Kuga (Chiba University)
Introduction to formalization of topology using a proof assistant. (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
Although the program of formalization goes back to David
Hilbert, it is only recently that we can actually formalize
substantial theorems in modern mathematics. It is made possible by the
development of certain type theory and a computer software called a
proof assistant. We begin this talk by showing our formalization of
some basic geometric topology using a proof assistant COQ. Then we
introduce homotopy type theory (HoTT) of Voevodsky et al., which
interprets type theory from abstract homotopy theoretic perspective.
HoTT proposes "univalent" foundation of mathematics which is
particularly suited for computer formalization.

Seminar on Geometric Complex Analysis

10:30-12:00   Room #126 (Graduate School of Math. Sci. Bldg.)
Tomoyuki Hisamoto (Nagoya Univ.)
On uniform K-stability (Japanese)
[ Abstract ]
It is a joint work with Sébastien Boucksom and Mattias Jonsson. We first introduce functionals on the space of test configurations, as non-Archimedean analogues of classical functionals on the space of Kähler metrics. Then, uniform K-stability is defined as a counterpart of K-energy's coercivity condition. Finally, reproving and strengthening Y. Odaka's results, we study uniform K-stability of Kähler-Einstein manifolds.

Algebraic Geometry Seminar

15:30-17:00   Room #122 (Graduate School of Math. Sci. Bldg.)
Yuya Matsumoto (University of Tokyo)
Good reduction of K3 surfaces (日本語 or English)
[ Abstract ]
We consider degeneration of K3 surfaces over a 1-dimensional base scheme
of mixed characteristic (e.g. Spec of the p-adic integers).
Under the assumption of potential semistable reduction, we first prove
that a trivial monodromy action on the l-adic etale cohomology group
implies potential good reduction, where potential means that we allow a
finite base extension.
Moreover we show that a finite etale base change suffices.
The proof for the first part involves a mixed characteristic
3-dimensional MMP (Kawamata) and the classification of semistable
degeneration of K3 surfaces (Kulikov, Persson--Pinkham, Nakkajima).
For the second part, we consider flops and descent arguments. This is a joint work with Christian Liedtke.

Gunnar Carlsson (Stanford University, Ayasdi INC)
The Shape of Data
(ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
There is a tremendous amount of attention being paid to the notion of
"Big Data". In many situations, however, the problem is not so much the
size of the data but rather its complexity. This observation shows that
it is now important to find methods for representing complex data in a
compressed and understandable fashion. Representing data by shapes
turns out to be useful in many situations, and therefore topology, the
mathematical sub discipline which studies shape, becomes quite
relevant. There is now a collection of methods based on topology for
analyzing complex data, and in this talk we will discuss these methods,
with numerous examples.

Number Theory Seminar

17:30-18:30   Room #056 (Graduate School of Math. Sci. Bldg.)
Shou-Wu Zhang (Princeton University)
Colmez' conjecture in average (English)
[ Abstract ]
This is a report on a joint work with Xinyi Yuan on a conjectured formula of Colmez about the Faltings heights of CM abelian varieties. I will sketch a deduction of this formula in average of CM types from our early work on Gross-Zagier formula. When combined with a recent work of Tsimerman, this result implies the Andre-Oort conjecture for the moduli of abelian varieties.
Our method is different than a recently announced proof of a weaker form of the average formula by Andreatta, Howard, Goren, and Madapusi Pera: we use neither high dimensional Shimura varieties nor Borcherds' liftings.

Convex bodies and geometry of some associated Minkowski functionals (日本語)
[ Abstract ]
In this talk, we will investigate the construction of so-called Hilbert metric, as well as Funk metric, defined on convex set from a new variational viewpoint. The local and global aspects of the geometry of the resulting Minkowski functionals will be contrasted. As an application, some remarks on the Perron-Frobenius theorem will be made. Part of the project is a joint work with Athanase Papadopoulos (Strasbourg).

Lie Groups and Representation Theory

17:00-18:30   Room #122 (Graduate School of Math. Sci. Bldg.)
Anton Evseev (University of Birmingham)
RoCK blocks, wreath products and KLR algebras (English)
[ Abstract ]
The so-called RoCK (or Rouquier) blocks play an important role in representation theory of symmetric groups over a finite field of characteristic $p$, as well as of Hecke algebras at roots of unity. Turner has conjectured that a certain idempotent truncation of a RoCK block is Morita equivalent to the principal block $B_0$ of the wreath product $S_p\wr S_d$ of symmetric groups, where $d$ is the "weight" of the block. The talk will outline a proof of this conjecture, which generalizes a result of Chuang-Kessar proved for $d < p$. The proof uses an isomorphism between a Hecke algebra at a root of unity and a cyclotomic Khovanov-Lauda-Rouquier algebra, the resulting grading on the Hecke algebra and the ideas behind a construction of R-matrices for modules over KLR algebras due to Kang-Kashiwara-Kim.

Tuesday Seminar on Topology

17:00-18:30   Room #056 (Graduate School of Math. Sci. Bldg.)
Akishi Kato (The University of Tokyo)
Quiver mutation loops and partition q-series (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
Quivers and their mutations are ubiquitous in mathematics and
mathematical physics; they play a key role in cluster algebras,
wall-crossing phenomena, gluing of ideal tetrahedra, etc.
Recently, we introduced a partition q-series for a quiver mutation loop
(a loop in a quiver exchange graph) using the idea of state sum of statistical
mechanics. The partition q-series enjoy some nice properties such
as pentagon move invariance. We also discuss their relation with combinatorial
Donaldson-Thomas invariants, as well as fermionic character formulas of
certain conformal field theories.
This is a joint work with Yuji Terashima.

Seminar on Geometric Complex Analysis

Masanori Adachi (Tokyo Univ. of Science)
On a global estimate of the Diederich–Fornaess index of Levi-flat real hypersurfaces (Japanese)
[ Abstract ]
We give yet another proof for a global estimate of the Diederich-Fornaess index of relatively compact domains with Levi-flat boundary, namely, the index must be smaller than or equal to the reciprocal of the dimension of the ambient space. Although the Diederich-Fornaess index is originally defined for relatively compact domains in complex manifolds, our formulation reveals that it makes sense for abstract Levi-flat CR manifolds.

Algebraic Geometry Seminar

Will Donovan (IPMU)
Twists and braids for general 3-fold flops (English)
[ Abstract ]
When a 3-fold contains a floppable rational curve, a theorem of Bridgeland provides a derived equivalence between the 3-fold and its flop. I will discuss recent joint work with Michael Wemyss, showing that these flop functors satisfy Coxeter-type braid relations. Using this result, we construct an action of a braid-type group on the derived category of the 3-fold. This group arises from the topology of a certain simplicial hyperplane arrangement, determined by the local geometry of the curve. I will give examples and explain key elements in the construction, including the noncommutative deformations of curves introduced in our previous work.
