Equivariant local index and transverse index for circle action (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
In our joint work with Furuta and Yoshida we gave a formulation of index theory of Dirac-type operator on open Riemannian manifolds. We used a torus fibration and a perturbation by Dirac-type operator along fibers. In this talk we develop an equivariant version for circle action and apply it for Hamiltonian circle action case. We investigate the relation between our equivariant index and index of transverse elliptic operator/symbol developed by Atiyah, Paradan-Vergne and Braverman. We give a computation for the standard cylinder, which shows the difference between two equivariant indices.

Andrei Pajitnov (Univ. de Nantes)
Real-valued and circle-valued Morse theory:
an introduction
(ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Classical Morse theory relates the number of critical points of a Morse
function f on a manifold M to the topology of M. The main technical
ingredient of this theory is a chain complex generated by the critical points
of the function. In 1981 S.P. Novikov generalized this theory to the case of
circle-valued Morse functions. In this talk we describe the construction of
both chain complexes, based on the idea of E. Witten (1982), which allows, in
particular, to compute the boundary operators in the Morse complex from
the count of flow lines of the gradient of f. We discuss geometric applications
of these constructions.

The Geometry of Critical Points of Green functions On Tori (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
The Green function of a torus can be expressed by elliptic functions or Jacobic theta functions. It is not surprising the geometry of its critical points would be involved with behaviors of those classical functions. Thus, the non-degeneracy of critical points gives rise to some inequality for elliptic functions. One of consequences of our analysis is to prove any saddle point is non-degenerate, i.e., the Hessian is negative.

We will also show that the number of the critical points of Green function in any torus is either three or five critical points. Furthermore, the moduli space of tori which Green function has five critical points is a simple-connected connected set. The proof of these results use a nonlinear PDE (mean field equation) and the formula for counting zeros of modular form. For a N torsion point,the related modular form is the Eisenstein series of weight one, which was discovered by Hecke (1926). Thus, our PDE method gives a deformation of those Eisenstein series and allows us to find the zeros of those Eisenstein series.

We can generalize our results to a sum of two Green functions.

Low-dimensional linear representations of mapping class groups. (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
For a compact connected orientable surface, the mapping class group
of it is defined as the group of isotopy classes of orientation-preserving
self-diffeomorphisms of S which are identity on the boundary. The action
of the mapping class group on the first homology of the surface
gives rise to the classical 2g-dimensional symplectic representation.
The existence of a faithful linear representation of the mapping class
group is still unknown. In my talk, I will show the following three results;
there is no lower dimensional (complex) linear representation,
up to conjugation the symplectic representation is the unique nontrivial representation in dimension 2g, and there is no faithful linear representation
of the mapping class group in dimensions up to 3g-3. I will also discuss a few applications of these theorems, including some algebraic consequences.

Generalized deformation theory of CR structures (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
Let $(M, {}^0 T^{''})$ be a compact strongly pseudo convex CR manifold with dimension $2n-1 \geq 5$, embedded in a complex manifold $N$ as a real hypersurface. In our former papers (T. Akahori, Invent. Math. 63 (1981); T. Akahori, P. M. Garfield, and J. M. Lee, Michigan Math. J. 50 (2002)), we constructed the versal family of CR structures. The purpose of this talk is to show that in more wide scope, our family is versal.

On logarithmic nonabelian Hodge theory of higher level in characteristic p (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
Ogus and Vologodsky studied a positive characteristic analogue of Simpson’s nonanelian Hodge theory over the complex number field. Now most part of their theory has been generalized to the case of log schemes by Schepler. In this talk, we generalize the global Cartier transform, which is one of the main theorem in nonabelian Hodge theory in positive characteristic, to the case of log schemes and of higher level. This can be regarded as a higher level version of a result of Schepler.

Homogenization in a Thin Layer with an Oscillating Interface and Highly Contrast Coefficients (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
We consider the homogenization problem of the elliptic boundary value problem in a thin domain which has a high and low conductivity zones. In our model, two media are separated by a highly oscillating interface. The asymptotic behavior is governed by the order of the thickness of the domain, oscillation period of the interface and contrast between two media. In this talk, we show that the limit problem is changed by these parameters. We also introduce the two-scale convergence result in a thin domain which is the key ingredient of the proof.

A Heegaard Floer homology for bipartite spatial graphs and its
properties (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
A spatial graph is a smooth embedding of a graph into a given
3-manifold. We can regard a link as a particular spatial graph.
So it is natural to ask whether it is possible to extend the idea
of link Floer homology to define a Heegaard Floer homology for
spatial graphs. In this talk, we discuss some ideas towards this
question. In particular, we define a Heegaard Floer homology for
bipartite spatial graphs and discuss some further observations
about this construction. We remark that Harvey and O’Donnol
have announced a combinatorial Floer homology for spatial graphs by
considering grid diagrams.

A generalization of Taub-NUT deformations (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
Taub-NUT metric on C^2 is a complete Ricci-flat Kaehler metric which is not flat. It is obtained by the Taub-NUT deformations of the Euclidean metric on C^2 using an S^1 action. Taub-NUT deformations are known to be defined for toric hyperKaehler manifolds, and deform ALE metrics to non-ALE metrics. In this talk, I explain a generalization of Taub-NUT deformations by using noncommutative Lie groups.

Vanishing cycles and homotopies of wrinkled fibrations (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
Wrinkled fibrations on closed 4-manifolds are stable
maps to closed surfaces with only indefinite singularities. Such
fibrations and variants of them have been studied for the past few years
to obtain new descriptions of 4-manifolds using mapping class groups.
Vanishing cycles of wrinkled fibrations play a key role in these studies.
In this talk, we will explain how homotopies of wrinkled fibrtions affect
their vanishing cycles. Part of the results in this talk is a joint work
with Stefan Behrens (Max Planck Institute for Mathematics).
