Yusaku Tiba (Tokyo Institute of Technology)
On a convex level set of a plurisubharmonic function and the support of the Monge-Ampere current (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
In this talk, we study a geometric property of a continuous plurisubharmonic function which is a solution of the Monge-Ampere equation and has a convex level set. By using our results and Lempert's results, we show a relation between the supports of the Monge-Ampere currents and complex $k$-extreme points of closed balls for the Kobayashi distance in a bounded convex domain in $C^n$.

Jean-Pierre RAMIS (Toulouse)
DIFFERENTIAL GALOIS THEORY AND INTEGRABILITY OF DYNAMICAL SYSTEMS
[ Abstract ]
We will explain how to get obstructions to the integrability of analytic Hamiltonian Systems (in the classical Liouville sense) using Differential Galois Theory (introduced by Emile Picard at the end of XIX-th century). It is the so-called Morales-Ramis theory. Even if this sounds abstract, there exist efficient algorithms allowing to apply the theory and a lot of applications in various domains.

Firstly I will present basics on Hamiltonian Systems and integrability on one side and on Differential Galois Theory on the other side. Then I will state the main theorems. Afterwards I will describe some applications.

Harmonic maps into the hyperbolic plane and their applications to surface theory (Japanese)
[ Abstract ]
Harmonic maps from two-dimensional Riemannian manifolds into the hyperbolic plane have been well studied. Since constant mean curvature surfaces in the Minkowski space have harmonic Gauss maps into the hyperbolic plane, there exist applications to surface theory.
In 1998, Dorfmeister, Pedit and Wu established the construction method of harmonic maps into symmetric spaces via loop group method. Recently, harmonic maps into the hyperbolic plane appear in various classes of surfaces, e.g., minimal surfaces in the Heisenberg group,
maximal surfaces in the anti-de Sitter space or constant Gaussian curvature surfaces in the hyperbolic space. In this talk I will talk about the general construction method of harmonic maps from surfaces into symmetric spaces via loop group method and the case of the hyperbolic plane in details.

Brian Bowditch (University of Warwick)
The coarse geometry of Teichmuller space. (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
We describe some results regarding the coarse geometry of the
Teichmuller space
of a compact surface. In particular, we describe when the Teichmuller
space admits quasi-isometric embeddings of euclidean spaces and
half-spaces.
We also give some partial results regarding the quasi-isometric rigidity
of Teichmuller space. These results are based on the fact that Teichmuller
space admits a ternary operation, natural up to bounded distance
which endows it with the structure of a coarse median space.

Harmonic analysis on reductive p-adic symmetric spaces. (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
In this lecture we will review the Plancherel formula that
we got by looking to neighborhoods at infinity of the
symmetric spaces and then using the method of Sakellaridis-Venkatesh
for spherical varieties for a split group. For us the group
is not necessarily split. We will try to show what questions
are raised by this work for real spherical varieties.
We will present in the last part a joint work with Pascale
Harinck and Yiannis Sakellaridis in which we prove Paley-Wiener
theorems for symmetric spaces.

Eric Stade (University of Colorado Boulder)
Whittaker functions and Barnes-Type Lemmas (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
In the theory of automorphic forms on GL(n,R), which concerns harmonic analysis and representation theory of this group, certain special functions known as GL(n,R) Whittaker functions play an important role. These Whittaker functions are generalizations of classical Whittaker (or, more specifically, Bessel) functions.

Mellin transforms of products of GL(n,R) Whittaker functions may be expressed as certain Barnes type integrals, or equivalently, as hypergeometric series of unit argument. The general theory of automorphic forms predicts that these Mellin transforms reduce, in certain cases, to products of gamma functions. That this does in fact occur amounts to a whole family of generalizations of the so-called Barnes' Lemma and Barnes' Second Lemma, from the theory of hypergeometric series. We will explore these generalizations in this talk.

This talk will not require any specific knowledge of automorphic forms.

A p-adic Labesse-Langlands transfer (English)
[ Abstract ]
Let B be a definite quaternion algebra over the rationals, G the algebraic group defined by the units in B and H the subgroup of G of norm one elements. Then the classical transfer of automorphic representations from G to H is well understood thanks to Labesse and Langlands, who proved formulas for the multiplicity of irreducible admissible representations of H(adeles) in the discrete automorphic spectrum.
The goal of this talk is to prove a p-adic version of this transfer. By this we mean an extension of the classical transfer to p-adic families of automorphic forms as parametrized by certain rigid analytic spaces called eigenvarieties. We will prove the p-adic transfer by constructing a morphism between eigenvarieties, which agrees with the classical transfer on points corresponding to classical automorphic representations.

On projective varieties with very large canonical volume (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
For any positive integer n>0, a theorem of Hacon-McKernan, Takayama and Tsuji says that there is a constant c(n) so that the m-canonical map is birational onto its image for all smooth projective n-folds and all m>=c(n). We are interested in the following problem "P(n)": is there a constant M(n) so that, for all smooth projective n-fold X with Vol(X)>M(n), the m-canonical map of X is birational for all m>=c(n-1). The answer to “P_n" is positive due to Bombieri when $n=2$ and to Todorov when $n=3$. The aim of this talk is to introduce my joint work with Zhi Jiang from Universite Paris-Sud. We give a positive answer in dimensions 4 and 5.

On the minimality of canonically attached singular Hermitian metrics on certain nef line bundles (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
We apply Ueda theory to a study of singular Hermitian metrics of a (strictly) nef line bundle $L$. Especially we study minimal singular metrics of $L$, metrics of $L$ with the mildest singularities among singular Hermitian metrics of $L$ whose local weights are plurisubharmonic. In some situations, we determine a minimal singular metric of $L$. As an application, we give new examples of (strictly) nef line bundles which admit no smooth Hermitian metric with semi-positive curvature.

Vanishing theorems for p-local homology of Coxeter groups and their alternating subgroups (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
Given a prime number $p$, we estimate vanishing ranges of $p$-local homology groups of Coxeter groups (of possibly infinite order) and alternating subgroups of finite reflection groups. Our results generalize those by Nakaoka for symmetric groups and Kleshchev-Nakano and Burichenko for alternating groups. The key ingredient is the equivariant homology of Coxeter complexes.

Finite element method with various types of penalty on domain/boundary (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
We are concerned with several penalty methods (on domain/boundary)
combining with finite element method to solve some partial differential equations. The penalty methods are very useful and widely applied to various problems. For example, to solve the Navier-Stokes equations in moving boundary domain, the finite element method requires to construct the boundary fitted mesh at every times step, which is very time-consuming. The fictitious domain method is proposed to tackle this problem. It is to reformulate the equation to a larger fixed domain, called the fictitious domain, to which we can take a uniform mesh independent on the original moving boundary. The reformulation is based on a penalty method on do- main. Some penalty methods are proposed to approximate the boundary conditions which are not easy to handle with general FEM, such as the slip boundary condition to Stokes/Navier-Stokes equations, the unilateral boundary condition of Signorini’s type to Stokes equations, and so on. It is known that the variational crimes occurs if the finite element spaces or the implementation methods are not chosen properly for slip boundary condition. By introducing a penalty term to the normal component of velocity on slip boundary, we can solve the equations in FEM easily. For the boundary of Signorini’s type, the variational form is an inequality, to which the FEM is not easy to applied. However, we can approximate the variational inequality by a variation equation with penalty term, which can be solve by FEM directly. In above, we introduced several penalty methods with finite element approximation. In this work, we investigate the well-posedness of those penalty method, and obtain the error estimates of penalty; moreover, we consider the penalty methods combining with finite element approximation and show the error estimates.

A finite diameter theorem on RCD spaces (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
I will talk about a finite diameter theorem on RCD spaces of (possibly) infinite dimension. An RCD space is a generalization of a concept of a manifold with bounded Ricci curvature. Savar¥'e proves the "self-improving property" on RCD spaces via the Gamma calculus. Because of his work and Kuwada’s duality argument, we are able to get the L^{¥infty}-contraction of heat kernels. I will show the main result by combining the contraction property and a simple lemma.

Fluid flow and electromagnetic fields, from viewpoint of theoretical physics -- Is the Navier-Stokes Equation sufficient to describe turbulence at very high Reynolds numbers? -- (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
There exists analogy between the fluid flow and electromagnetic fields with respect to their mathematical representations. This is reasonable because both are continuous physical fields having energy and momentum in space-time. In particular, fluid’s vorticity is analogous to magnetic field.

On the other hand, for simulation of atmospheric global motion on the giant computer Earth Simulator, many empirical physical parameters must be introduced in order to obtain realistic results for weather prediction, etc. This implies that the present system of equations of fluid flows may not be sufficient to describe fluid motions of large scales at very high Reynolds numbers. We consider whether the above-mentioned analogy is useful for improvement of the theory of turbulence at very high Reynolds numbers.
