Jesse Wolfson (Northwestern University)
The Index Map and Reciprocity Laws for Contou-Carrere Symbols (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
In the 1960s, Atiyah and Janich constructed the families index as a natural map from the space of Fredholm operators to the classifying space of topological K-theory, and showed it to be an equivalence. In joint work with Oliver Braunling and Michael Groechenig, we construct an analogous index map in algebraic K-theory. Building on recent work of Sho Saito, we show this provides an analogue of Atiyah and Janich's equivalence. More significantly, the index map allows us to relate the Contou-Carrere symbol, a local analytic invariant of schemes, to algebraic K-theory. Using this, we provide new proofs of reciprocity laws for Contou-Carrere symbols in dimension 1 (first established by Anderson--Pablos Romo) and 2 (established recently by Osipov--Zhu). We extend these reciprocity laws to all dimensions.

Higher dimensional analogues of fake projective planes (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
A fake projective plane is a smooth projective complex algebraic surface which is not isomorphic to the complex projective plane but whose Betti numbers are that of the complex projective plane. The fake projective planes are algebraic surfaces of general type and have smallest possible Euler-Poincare characteristic among them. The first fake projective plane was constructed by D. Mumford using p-adic uniformization, and it was known that there can only be finitely many of them. A complete classification of the fake projective planes was obtained by Sai-Kee Yeung and myself. We showed that there are 28 classes of them, and constructed at least one explicit example in each class. Later, using long computer assisted computations, D. Cartwright and Tim Steger found that the 28 families altogether contain precisely 100 fake projective planes. Using our work, they also found a very interesting smooth projective complex algebraic surface whose Euler-Poincare characteristic is 3 but whose first Betti
number is 2. We have a natural notion of higher dimensional analogues of fake projective planes and to a large extent determined them. My talk will be devoted to an exposition of this work.

Mikhail Kapranov (Kavli IPMU) 13:20-14:20
Perverse sheaves on hyperplane arrangements (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Given an arrangement of hyperplanes in $R^n$, one has the complexified arrangement in $C^n$ and the corresponding category of perverse sheaves (smooth along the strata of the natural stratification).

The talk, based in a joint work with V. Schechtman, will present an explicit description of this category in terms of data associated to the face complex of the real arrangement. Such a description suggests a possibility of categorifying the concept of a oerverse sheaf in this and possibly in more general cases.

Upper global nasis, cluster algebra and simplicity of tensor products of simple modules (ENGLISH)

Fomin and Zelevinsky is
multiplicative properties of upper global basis.

Toshiyuki Kobayashi (the University of Tokyo) 16:00-17:00
Branching Problems of Representations of Real Reductive Groups (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Branching problems ask how irreducible representations π of groups G "decompose" when restricted to subgroups G'.
For real reductive groups, branching problems include various important special cases, however, it is notorious that "infinite multiplicities" and "continuous spectra" may well happen in general even if (G,G') are natural pairs such as symmetric pairs.

By using analysis on (real) spherical varieties, we give a necessary and sufficient condition on the pair of reductive groups for the multiplicities to be always finite (and also to be of uniformly bounded). Further, we discuss "discretely decomposable restrictions" which allows us to apply algebraic tools in branching problems. Some classification results will be also presented.

If time permits, I will discuss some applications of branching laws of Zuckerman's derived functor modules to analysis on locally symmetric spaces with indefinite metric.

Representations of covering groups with multiplicity free K-types (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Let g be a simple Lie algebra over complex numbers. McGovern has
described an ideal J in the enveloping algebra U such that U/J, considered as a g-module under the adjoint action, is a sum of all self-dual representations of g with multiplicity one. In a joint work with Loke, we prove that all (g,K)-modules annihilated by J have multiplicity free K-types, where K is defined by the Chevalley involution.

Toshiyuki Kobayashi (Graduate School of Mathematical Sciences, University of Tokyo)
Global Geometry and Analysis on Locally Symmetric Spaces with
Indefinite-metric (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
The local to global study of geometries was a major trend of 20th
century geometry,
with remarkable developments achieved particularly in Riemannian geometry.
In contrast, in areas such as pseudo-Riemannian geometry, familiar to us
as the space-time of relativity theory, and more generally in
pseudo-Riemannian geometry of general signature, surprising little is
known about global properties of the geometry even if we impose a
locally homogeneous structure.

I plan to explain two programs:

1. (global shape) Existence problem of compact locally homogeneous spaces,
and deformation theory.

2. (spectral analysis) Construction of the spectrum of the Laplacian,
and its stability under the deformation of the geometric structure.

by taking anti-de Sitter manifolds as a typical example.

The Johnson homomorphism and a family of curve graphs (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Abstract: A family of curve graphs of an oriented surface $S_{g,1}$ will be defined on which there exists a natural orientation, coming from the orientation of subsurfaces. Distances in these graphs represent commutator lengths in $\\pi_{1}(S_{g,1})$. The displacement of vertices in the graphs under the action of the Torelli group is used to give a combinatorial description of the Johnson homomorphism."

ABS equations arising from q-P((A2+A1)^{(1)}) (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
The study of periodic reductions from ABS equations to discrete Painlevé equations have been investigated by many groups. However, there still remain open questions:
(i) How do we identify the discrete Painlevé equation that would result from applying a periodic reduction to an ABS equation?
(ii) Discrete Painlevé equations obtained by periodic reductions often have insufficient number of parameters. How do we obtain the general case with all essential parameters?
To solve these problems, we investigated the periodic reductions from the viewpoint of Painlevé systems.

In this talk, we show how to construct a lattice where ABS equations arise from relationships between $\\tau$ functions of Painlevé systems and explain how this lattice relates to a hyper cube associated with an ABS equation on each face.
In particular, we consider the $q$-Painlevé equations, which have the affine Weyl group symmetry of type $(A_2+A_1)^{(1)}$.

Sho Tanimoto (Rice University)
Balanced line bundles (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
A conjecture of Batyrev and Manin relates arithmetic properties of
varieties with big anticanonical class to geometric invariants; in
particular, counting functions defined by metrized ample line bundles
and the corresponding asymptotics of rational points of bounded height
are interpreted in terms of cones of effective divisors and certain
thresholds with respect to these cones. This framework leads to the
notion of balanced line bundles, whose counting functions, conjecturally,
capture generic distributions of rational points. We investigate
balanced line bundles in the context of the Minimal Model Program, with
special regard to the classification of Fano threefolds and Mori fiber
spaces.
This is joint work with Brian Lehmann and Yuri Tschinkel.

Yohsuke Imagi (Kavli IPMU)
Singularities of special Lagrangian submanifolds (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
There are interesting invariants defined by "counting" geometric
objects, such as instantons in dimension 4 and pseudo-holomorphic curves
in symplectic manifolds. To do the counting in a sensible way, however,
we have to care about singularities of the geometric objects. Special
Lagrangian submanifolds seem very difficult to "count" as their
singularities may be very complicated. I'll talk about simple
singularities for which we can make an analogy with instantons in
dimension 4 and pseudo-holomorphic curves in symplectic manifolds. To do
it I'll use some techniques from geometric measure theory and Lagrangian
Floer theory, and the Floer-theoretic part is a joint work with Dominic
Joyce and Oliveira dos Santos.

WONDERFUL VARIETIES. REGULARIZED TRACES AND CHARACTERS (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Let G be a connected reductive complex algebraic group with split real form $G^\\sigma$.
In this talk, we introduce a distribution character for the regular representation of $G^\\sigma$ on the real locus of a strict wonderful G-variety X, showing that on a certain open subset of $G^\\sigma$ of transversal elements it is locally integrable, and given by a sum over fixed points.

Invariant subrings of the Cox rings of K3surfaces by automorphism groups (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
Cox rings were introduced by D.Cox and are important rings which appeared in algebraic geometry. One of the main topic related with Cox rings is the finite generation of them. In this talk, we consider the Cox rings of K3 surfaces and answer the following question asked by D. Huybrechts; Are the invariant subrings of the Cox rings of K3 surfaces by automorphism groups finitely generated in general?

Entropic curvature-dimension condition and Bochner’s inequality (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
As a characterization of "lower Ricci curvature bound and upper dimension bound”, there appear several conditions which make sense even on singular spaces. In this talk we show the equivalence in complete generality between two major conditions: a reduced version of curvature-dimension bounds of Sturm-Lott-Villani via entropy and optimal transport and Bakry–¥'Emery's one via Markov generator or the associated heat semigroup. More precisely, it holds for metric measure spaces where Cheeger's L^2-energy functional is a quadratic form. In particular, we establish the full Bochner inequality, which originally comes from the Bochner-Weitzenb¥"ock formula, on such spaces. This talk is based on a joint work with M. Erbar and K.-T. Sturm (Bonn).
