**Arnak Dalalyan**(ENSAE ParisTech)(2)Lasso, Dantzig selector and their statistical properties. (ENGLISH)

[ Abstract ]

In this second lecture, we will focus on the problem of high dimensional linear regression under the sparsity assumption and discuss the three main statistical problems: denoising, prediction and model selection. We will prove that convex programming based predictors such as the lasso and the Dantzig selector are provably consistent as soon as the dictionary elements are normalized and an appropriate upper bound on the noise-level is available. We will also show that under additional assumptions on the dictionary elements, the aforementioned methods are rate-optimal and model-selection consistent.

On complex singularity analysis for some linear partial differential equations

**Stéphane Malek**(Université de Lille, France)On complex singularity analysis for some linear partial differential equations

[ Abstract ]

We investigate the existence of local holomorphic solutions Y of linear partial differential equations in three complex variables whose coefficients are holomorphic on some polydisc outside some singular set S. The coefficients are written as linear combinations of powers of a solution X of some first order nonlinear partial differential equation following an idea :we have initiated in a previous joint work with C. Stenger. The solutions Y are shown to develop singularities along the singular set S with estimates of exponential type depending on the growth's rate of X near the singular set. We construct these solutions with the help of series of functions with infinitely many variables which involve derivatives of all orders of X in one variable. Convergence and bounds estimates of these series are studied using a majorant series method which leads to an auxiliary functional equation that contains differential operators in infinitely many variables. Using a fixed point argument, we show that these functional equations actually have solutions in some Banach spaces of formal power series. (Joint work with A. Lastra and C. Stenger).

Monodromies of splitting families for singular fibers (JAPANESE)

**Takayuki Okuda**(The University of Tokyo)Monodromies of splitting families for singular fibers (JAPANESE)

[ Abstract ]

A degeneration of Riemann surfaces is a family of complex curves

over a disk allowed to have a singular fiber.

A singular fiber may split into several simpler singular fibers

under a deformation family of such families,

which is called a splitting family for the singular fiber.

We are interested in the topology of splitting families.

For the topological types of degenerations of Riemann surfaces,

it is known that there is a good relationship with

the surface mapping classes, via topological monodromy.

In this talk,

we introduce the "topological monodromies of splitting families",

and give a description of those of certain splitting families.

Extension of holomorphic functions defined on non reduced analytic subvarieties (English)

**Jean-Pierre Demailly**(Univ. de Grenoble I)Extension of holomorphic functions defined on non reduced analytic subvarieties (English)

[ Abstract ]

The goal of this talk will be to discuss $L^2$ extension properties of holomorphic sections of vector bundles satisfying weak semi-positivity properties. Using techniques borrowed from recent proofs of the Ohsawa-Takegoshi extension theorem, we obtain several new surjectivity results for the restriction morphism to a non necessarily reduced subvariety, provided the latter is defined as the zero variety of a multiplier ideal sheaf. These extension results are derived from $L^2$ approximation techniques, and they hold under (probably) optimal curvature conditions.

Interesting surfaces which are coverings of a rational surface branched over few lines (English)

**Fabrizio Catanese**(Universität Bayreuth)Interesting surfaces which are coverings of a rational surface branched over few lines (English)

[ Abstract ]

Surfaces which are covers of the plane branched over 5 or 6 lines have provided answers to long standing questions, for instance the BCD surfaces for Fujita's question on semiampleness of VHS (Dettweiler-Cat); and examples of ball quotients (Hirzebruch), automorphisms acting trivially on integral cohomology (Cat-Gromadtzki), canonical maps with high degree or image-degree (Pardini, Bauer-Cat). I shall speak especially about the above Abelian coverings of the plane, the geometry of the del Pezzo surface of degree 5, the rigidity of BCD surfaces, and a criterion for a fibred surface to be a projective classifying space.

Self-organized criticality in a discrete model of limited aggregation

**Raoul Normand**(Institute of Mathematics, Academia Sinica)Self-organized criticality in a discrete model of limited aggregation

[ Abstract ]

We consider a discrete model of coagulation, where a large number of particles are initially given a prescribed number of arms. We successively choose arms uniformly at random and bind them two by two, unless they belong to "large" clusters. In that sense, the large clusters are frozen and become inactive. We study the graph structure obtained, and describe what a typical cluster looks like. We show that there is a fixed time T such that, before time T, a typical cluster is a subcritical Galton-Watson tree, whereas after time T, a typical cluster is a critical Galton-Watson tree. In that sense, we observe a phenomenon called self-organized criticality.

The strong version of K-stability derived from the coercivity property of the K-energy (Japanese)

**Hisamoto Tomoyuki**(Nagoya University)The strong version of K-stability derived from the coercivity property of the K-energy (Japanese)

[ Abstract ]

This is a joint work with S. Boucksom and M. Jonsson. We introduced the notion of J-uniform K-stability in relation to the coercivity property of the K-energy. As a result, one can see that any Kähler-Einstein

manifolds with no non-zero holomorphic vector field is J-uniformly K-stable.

Introduction to the cohomology of discrete groups and modular symbols 2 (English)

**Birgit Speh**(Cornell University)Introduction to the cohomology of discrete groups and modular symbols 2 (English)

[ Abstract ]

The course is an introduction to the cohomology of torsion free discrete subgroups $\Gamma \subset G $ of a semi simple group $G$. The discrete group $\Gamma$ acts freely on the symmetric space $X= G/K$ and we will always assume that $\Gamma \backslash G/K$ is compact or has finite volume. An example is a torsion free subgroup $\Gamma_n $ of finite index n in Sl(2,Z) acting on $Sl(2.R)/SO(2) \simeq {\mathcal H}=\{z=x+iy \in C| y >0 \}$ by fractional linear transformations. $\Gamma_n \backslash {\mathcal H}$ can be determined explicitly and it can be visualized as an area in the upper half plane glued at the boundary. It is easy to see that it has some nice compactifications.

The cohomology $H^*(\Gamma, C)$ of the group $\Gamma$ is equal to the deRham cohomology $H^*_{deRham}(\Gamma \backslash X, C)$ of the manifold $\Gamma\backslash X$. This cohomology is studied by proving that it is isomorphic to the $H^*(g,K,{\mathcal A}(\Gamma \backslash G))$. Here ${\mathcal A}(\Gamma \backslash G)$ of automorphic functions on $\Gamma \backslash G$. In the case $\Gamma_n \subset Sl(2,Z)$ the space ${\mathcal A}(\Gamma \backslash G)$ is the space of classical automorphic functions on the upper half plane containing holomorphic cusp form, Eisenstein series, Maass forms and it is often introduced in an introductory course in analytic number theory.

On the geometric side we will construct some of the cycles (modular symbols) in the homology $H_*(\Gamma\backslash X)$ which are dual to the cohomology classes we constructed. In our example $\Gamma_n\backslash Sl(2,R)/SO(2)$ these cycles correspond to geodesics and can easily be visualized.

In this course I will explain these results and show how to use them to prove vanishing and non vanishing theorem for $H^*_{deRham}(\Gamma \backslash X)$. I will state the results in full generality, but I will prove them only in the classical case: G=SL$(2,R)$ and the subgroup $\Gamma= \Gamma_n$ a congruence subgroup. Some familiarity with Lie groups and Lie algebras is only prerequisite for the course.

A local analysis of the swirling flow to the axi-symmetric Navier-Stokes equations near a saddle point and no-slip flat boundary (English)

**Pen-Yuan Hsu**(Graduate School of Mathematical Sciences, the University of Tokyo)A local analysis of the swirling flow to the axi-symmetric Navier-Stokes equations near a saddle point and no-slip flat boundary (English)

[ Abstract ]

As one of the violent flow, tornadoes occur in many place of the world. In order to reduce human losses and material damage caused by tornadoes, there are many research methods. One of the effective methods is numerical simulations. The swirling structure is significant both in mathematical analysis and the numerical simulations of tornado. In this joint work with H. Notsu and T. Yoneda we try to clarify the swirling structure. More precisely, we do numerical computations on axi-symmetric Navier-Stokes flows with no-slip flat boundary. We compare a hyperbolic flow with swirl and one without swirl and observe that the following phenomenons occur only in the swirl case: The distance between the point providing the maximum velocity magnitude $|v|$ and the $z$-axis is drastically changing around some time (which we call it turning point). An ``increasing velocity phenomenon'' occurs near the boundary and the maximum value of $|v|$ is obtained near the axis of symmetry and the boundary when time is close to the turning point.

The genus two handlebody mapping class group acts on a tree

and decomposes into an amalgamated product of two subgroups.

We determine the integral cohomology ring of the genus two handlebody

and the Mayer-Vietoris exact sequence.

Using this result, we estimate the ranks of low dimensional homology

Spatial population dynamics as a point pattern dynamics (JAPANESE)

http://www.ics.nara-wu.ac.jp/jp/staff/takasu.html

**Fugo TAKASU**(Nara Women's University)Spatial population dynamics as a point pattern dynamics (JAPANESE)

[ Abstract ]

Spatial population dynamics has been conventionally described as

dynamical system where population size (or population density) changes

with time over space as a continuous "real-valued" variable; these are

often given as partial differential equations as reaction-diffusion

models. In this approach, we implicitly assume infinitely large

population thereby population size changes smoothly and

deterministically. In reality, however, a population is a collection of

a certain number of individuals each of which gives birth or dies with

some stochasticity in a space and the population size as the number of

individuals is "integer-valued". In this talk, I introduce an approach

to reconstruct conventional spatial population dynamics in terms of

point pattern dynamics as a stochastic process. I discuss how to

mathematically describe such spatial stochastic processes using the

moments of increasing order of dimension; densities of points, pairs,

and triplets, etc. are described by integro-differential equations.

Quantification of a point pattern is the key issue here. As examples, I

introduce spatial epidemic SIS and SIR models as point pattern dynamics;

each individual has a certain "mark" depending on its health status; a

snapshot of individuals’ distribution over space is represented by a

marked point pattern and this marked point pattern dynamically changes

with time.

Order flow intensities for limit order book modelling

**Ioane Muni Toke**(University of New Caledonia)Order flow intensities for limit order book modelling

[ Abstract ]

Limit order books are at the core of electronic financial markets. Mathematical models of limit order books use point processes to model the arrival of limit, market and cancellation orders in the order book, but it is not clear what a "good" parametric model for the intensities of these point processes should be.

In the first part of the talk, we show that despite their simplicity basic Poisson processes can be used to accurately model a few features of the order book that more advanced models reproduce with volume-dependent intensities.

In the second part of the talk we present ongoing investigations in a more advanced statistical modelling of these order flow intensities using in particular normal mixture distributions and exponential models.

In the second part of the talk we present ongoing investigations in a more advanced statistical modelling of these order flow intensities using in particular normal mixture distributions and exponential models.

Topology of some three-dimensional singularities related to algebraic geometry (ENGLISH)

**Atsuko Katanaga**(Shinshu University)Topology of some three-dimensional singularities related to algebraic geometry (ENGLISH)

[ Abstract ]

In this talk, we deal with hypersurface isolated singularities. First, we will recall

some topological results of singularities. Next, we will sketch the classification of

singularities in algebraic geometry. Finally, we will focus on the three-dimensional

case and discuss some results obtained so far.

The Tamagawa number formula over function fields. (English)

**Dennis Gaitsgory**(Harvard University & IHES)The Tamagawa number formula over function fields. (English)

[ Abstract ]

Let G be a semi-simple and simply connected group and X an algebraic curve. We consider $Bun_G(X)$, the moduli space of G-bundles on X. In their celebrated paper, Atiyah and Bott gave a formula for the cohomology of $Bun_G$, namely $H^*(Bun_G)=Sym(H_*(X)\otimes V)$, where V is the space of generators for $H^*_G(pt)$. When we take our ground field to be a finite field, the Atiyah-Bott formula implies the Tamagawa number conjecture for the function field of X.

The caveat here is that the A-B proof uses the interpretation of $Bun_G$ as the space of connection forms modulo gauge transformations, and thus only works over complex numbers (but can be extend to any field of characteristic zero). In the talk we will outline an algebro-geometric proof that works over any ground field. As its main geometric ingredient, it uses the fact that the space of rational maps from X to G is homologically contractible. Because of the nature of the latter statement, the proof necessarily uses tools from higher category theory. So, it can be regarded as an example how the latter can be used to prove something concrete: a construction at the level of 2-categories leads to an equality of numbers.

Towards the complex geometry of Teichmuller space with extremal length (English)

**Hideki Miyachi**(Osaka University)Towards the complex geometry of Teichmuller space with extremal length (English)

[ Abstract ]

In this talk, in aiming for studying a relation between the topological aspect and the complex analytical aspect of Teichmuller space, I will discuss a complex analytic property of extremal length functions. More precisely, I will give a concrete formula of the Levi form of the extremal length functions for ``generic” measured foliations and show that the reciprocal of the extremal length function is plurisuperharmonic. As a corollary, I will give alternate proofs of S. Krushkal results that the distance function for the Teichmuller distance is plurisubharmonic, and Teichmuller space is hyperconvex. If time permits, I will give a topological description of the Levi form with using the Thurston's symplectic form.

**Yakov Eliashberg**(Stanford University)Crossroads of symplectic rigidity and flexibility (ENGLISH)

[ Abstract ]

The development of flexible and rigid sides of symplectic and contact topology towards each other shaped this subject since its inception, and continues shaping its modern development.

In the series of lectures I will discuss the history of this struggle, as well as describe recent breakthroughs on the flexible side.

Counting curves on surface in Calabi-Yau threefolds and the proof of S-duality modularity conjecture (English)

**Artan Sheshmani**(IPMU/ Ohio State University)Counting curves on surface in Calabi-Yau threefolds and the proof of S-duality modularity conjecture (English)

[ Abstract ]

I will talk about recent joint works with Amin Gholampour, Richard Thomas and Yukinobu Toda, on an algebraic-geometric proof of the S-duality conjecture in superstring theory, made formerly by physicists Gaiotto, Strominger, Yin, regarding the modularity of DT invariants of sheaves supported on hyperplane sections of the quintic Calabi-Yau threefold. Our strategy is to first use degeneration and localization techniques to reduce the threefold theory to a certain intersection theory over the relative Hilbert scheme of points on surfaces and then prove modularity; More precisely, together with Gholampour we have proven that the generating series, associated to the top intersection numbers of the Hilbert scheme of points, relative to an effective divisor, on a smooth quasi-projective surface is a modular form. This is a generalization of the result of Okounkov-Carlsson, where they used representation theory and the machinery of vertex operators to prove this statement for absolute Hilbert schemes. These intersection numbers eventually, together with the generating series of Noether-Lefschetz numbers as I will explain, will provide the ingredients to achieve a complete algebraic-geometric proof of S-duality modularity conjecture.
