Satoshi Nawata (Theoretical Physics at NIKHEF)
Colored HOMFLY homology of knots and links (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
In this talk I will present structural properties of colored HOMFLY homology of knots and links. These rich properties of the categorification of the colored HOMFLY polynomial are obtained by using various methods: physics insights, representation theory of Lie super-algebras, double affine Hecke algebras, etc. This in turn enables computation of colored HOMFLY homology for various classes of knots and links and consequent computation of super-A-polynomial - the deformation of the classical A-polynomial. I will also explain recent results and special additional properties for colored Kauffman homology as well as the case of links. Although I will try to give a talk accessible to mathematicians, there is no proof and rigorousness in this talk.

Colloquium

Etienne Ghys (École normale supérieure de Lyon)
William Thurston and foliation theory (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Between 1972 and 1976, William Thurston revolutionized foliation theory. Twenty years later, he described this period of his mathematical life in a remarkable paper « On proofs and progress in mathematics ». In this talk, I will begin by a general overview of some of Thurston's contribution to this theory. I will then describe some of the current development.

FMSP Lectures

Victoria Lebed (Osaka City University, JSPS)
A bridge between knotted graphs and axiomatizations of groups (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
This talk will be devoted to a new algebraic structure called qualgebra. From the topological viewpoint, our construction is motivated by a study of knotted 3-valent graphs via combinatorially defined coloring invariants. From the algebraic viewpoint, it gives a part of an alternative axiomatization of groups, describing the properties of the conjugation operation and its interactions with the group multiplication. Explicit examples of qualgebras and associated graph invariants will be given.

Hatem Zaag (CNRS / University of Paris Nord)
Energy methods and blow-up rate for semilinear wave equations in the superconformal case (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
In a series of papers with Mohamed Ali Hamza (University of Tunis-el Manar), we consider the semilinear wave equations with power nonlinearity.

In the subconformal and the conformal case, we consider perturbations with lower order terms and modify the Lyapunov functional Antonini and Merle designed for the unperturbed case. We also find a blow-up criterion for the equation. As a consequence, we bound the Lyapunov functional. Thanks to interpolations in Sobolev spaces and a Gagliardo-Nirenberg inequality, we bound the solution in the self-similar variable, which gives a sharp bound on the blow-up rate.

Surprisingly, our approach works in the superconformal case (still Sobolev subcritical), leading to a new bound on the blow-up rate, which improves the bound of Killip, Stoval and Visan.

Nicolas Bacaer (Insitut de Recherche pour le Developpement (IRD))
The stochastic SIS epidemic model in a periodic environment (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
In the stochastic SIS epidemic model with a contact rate a,
a recovery rate bT is such that (log T)/N converges to c=b/a-1-log(b/a) as N grows to
infinity. We consider the more realistic case where the contact rate
a(t) is a periodic function whose average is bigger than b. Then (log
T)/N converges to a new limit C, which is linked to a time-periodic
Hamilton-Jacobi equation. When a(t) is a cosine function with small
amplitude or high (resp. low) frequency, approximate formulas for C
can be obtained analytically following the method used in [Assaf et
al. (2008) Population extinction in a time-modulated environment. Phys
Rev E 78, 041123]. These results are illustrated by numerical
simulations.

Mathematical modelling of Tumor Immune System Interaction (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
We study the dynamical behavior of a tumor-immune system (T-IS) interaction model with two discrete delays,
namely the immune activation delay for effector cells (ECs) and activation delay for Helper T cells (HTCs).
By analyzing the characteristic equations, we establish the stability of two equilibria (tumor-free equilibrium and immune-control equilibrium) and the existence of Hopf bifurcations when two delays are used as the bifurcation parameter.
Our results exhibit that both delays do not affect the stability of tumor-free equilibrium.
However, they are able to destabilize the immune-control equilibrium and cause periodic solutions.
We numerically illustrate how these two delays can change the stability region of the immune-control equilibrium and display the different impacts to the control of tumors.
The numerical simulation results show that the immune activation delay for HTCs can induce heteroclinic cycles to connect the tumor-free equilibrium and immune-control equilibrium.
Furthermore, we observe that the immune activation delay for HTCs can even stabilize the unstable immune-control equilibrium.

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.
