Koichi Kaizuka (University of Tsukuba)
A characterization of the $L^{2}$-range of the
Poisson transform on symmetric spaces of noncompact type (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
Characterizations of the joint eigenspaces of invariant
differential operators in terms of the Poisson transform have been one of the central problems in harmonic analysis on symmetric spaces.
From the point of view of spectral theory, Strichartz (J. Funct.
Anal.(1989)) formulated a conjecture concerning a certain image
characterization of the Poisson transform of the $L^{2}$-space on the boundary on symmetric spaces of noncompact type. In this talk, we employ techniques in scattering theory to present a positive answer to the Strichartz conjecture.

Jon Nimmo (Univ. of Glasgow)
The discrete Schrodinger equation for compact support potentials (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
We consider the exact form of the Jost solutions of the discrete Schrodinger equation for arbitrary potentials with compact support. Remarkably, these solutions may be written in terms of certain explicitly defined polynomials in the non-trivial values of the potential. These polynomials also arise in the work of Yamada (2000) in connection with a birational representation of the symmetric group.
Applications of this approach to the udKdV are also discussed.

Akbulut and Yasui defined cork, and plug

or more 4-dimensional local moves and
and argue by using Heegaard Fleor theory.

Abel Klein (UC Irvine)
Quantitative unique continuation principle, local behavior of solutions, and bounds on the density of states for Schr\\"odinger operators (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
We establish bounds on the density of states measure for Schr\\"odinger operators. These are deterministic results that do not require the existence of the density of states measure, or, equivalently, of the integrated density of states. The results are stated in terms of a ``density of states outer-measure'' that always exists, and provides an upper bound for the density of states measure when it exists. We prove log-H\\"older continuity for this density of states outer-measure in one, two, and three dimensions for Schr\\"odinger operators, and in any dimension for discrete Schr\\"odinger operators. Our proofs use a quantitative unique continuation principle and the local behavior of approximate solutions of the stationary Schr\\"odinger equation.

Takuzo Okada (Saga University)
On birationally tririgid Q-Fano threefolds (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
I will talk about birational geometry of Q-Fano threefolds. A Mori
fiber space birational to a given Q-Fano threefold is called a birational Mori fiber structure of the threefold. The existence of Q-Fano threefolds with a unique birational Mori fiber structure (resp. with two birational Mori fiber structures) is known. In this talk I will give an example of Q-Fano threefolds with three birational Mori fiber structures and also discuss about the behavior of birational Mori fiber structures in a family.

Normalized entropy versus volume for pseudo-Anosovs (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
We establish an explicit linear inequality between the normalized entropy of pseudo-Anosov automorphisms and the hyperbolic volume of their mapping tori, based on a recent result by Jean-Marc Schlenker on renormalized volume of quasi-Fuchsian
manifolds. This is a joint work with Greg McShane.

Simon Gindikin (Rutgers University)
Horospheres: geometry and analysis (II) (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
About 50 years ago Gelfand suggested a concepion of horospherical transform which, he hoped, must be an universal principle unifying non commutative harmonic analysis. I want to make several historic remarks (especialy, since this year is the centenial anniversary of Gelfand). I want to discuss the evolution of this fundamental conception for 50 years and how Gelfand’s dreams are looked today. I will discuss an elementary case of hyperboloids of any signature where there were not too much progress after old initial result of Gelfand-Graev.

Sumio Yamada (Gakushuin University)
Variational characterizations of exact solutions of the Einstein equation (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
There are a set of well-known exact solutions to the Einstein equation. The most important one is the Schwarzschild metric, and it models a Ricci-flat space-time, which is asymptotically flat. In addition, there are the Reissner-Nordstrom metric and the Majumdar-Papapetrou metric, which satisfy the Einstein-Maxwell equation, instead of the vacuum Einstein equation. In a jointwork with Marcus Khuri and Gilbert Weinstein, it is shown that those metrics are characterized as the equality
cases of a set of so-called Penrose-type inequalities. The method of proof is a
conformal deformation of Riemannian metrics defined on the space-like slice of the space-time.

Bruno Martelli (Univ. di Pisa)
Hyperbolic four-manifolds with one cusp (cancelled) (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
(joint work with A. Kolpakov)

We introduce a simple algorithm which transforms every
four-dimensional cubulation into a cusped finite-volume hyperbolic
four-manifold. Combinatorially distinct cubulations give rise to
topologically distinct manifolds. Using this algorithm we construct
the first examples of finite-volume hyperbolic four-manifolds with one
cusp. More generally, we show that the number of k-cusped hyperbolic
four-manifolds with volume smaller than V grows like C^{V log V} for
any fixed k. As a corollary, we deduce that the 3-torus bounds
geometrically a hyperbolic manifold.

A smoothing property of the Bergman projection (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Let $D$ be a bounded domain with smooth boundary in complex space of dimension $n$. Suppose its Bergman projection $B$ maps the Sobolev space of order $k$ continuously into the one of order $m$. Then the following smoothing result holds: the full Sobolev norm of $Bf$ of order $k$ is controlled by $L^2$-derivatives of $f$ taken along a single, distinguished direction (of order up to $m$). This talk is based on joint work with J. D. McNeal and E. J. Straube.

The prescribed scalar curvature problem for metrics with unit total volume (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
In this talk I will talk about the modified Kazdan-Warner problem.
Kazdan and Warner in 1970's completely solved the prescribed scalar curvature problem. In particular, they proved that every function on a manifold with positive Yamabe invariant is the scalar curvature of some metric. Kobayashi in 1987 proposed the modified problem of finding metrics with prescribed scalar curvature and total volume 1. He proved that every function except positive constants on a manifold with positive Yamabe invariant is the scalar curvature of some metricwith total volume 1.
I have recently settled the remaining case. Applying Taubes tequniques to the scalar curvature equations, we can glue two Yamabe metrics to construct metrics with very large scalar curvature and unit total volume, and prove that every positive constant is the scalar curvature of some metric with total volume 1.

Inverse problem for the Maxwell equations (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
We consider an analog of Caderon's problem for the system of Maxwell equations in a cylindrical domain.
Under some geometrical assumptions on domain we show that from the partial data one can recover the complete set of parameters.

Rational elliptic surfaces and certain line-conic arrangements (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
Let S be a rational elliptic surface. The generic
fiber of S can be considered as an elliptic curve over
the rational function field of one variable. We can make
use of its group structure in order to cook up a curve C_2 on
S from a given section C_1.
In this talk, we consider certain line-conic arrangements of
degree 7 based on this method.
