Water waves over a random bottom (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
We present a Hamiltonian formulation for nonlinear surface water waves in the presence of a variable bottom. This formulation is based on a reduction of the problem to a lower-dimensional system involving boundary variables alone. To accomplish this, we express the Dirichlet-to-Neumann operator as a Taylor series in terms of the surface and bottom variations. This expansion is convenient for both asymptotic calculations and numerical simulations. First we apply this formulation to the asymptotic description of long waves over random topography. We show that the principal component of the solution can be described by a Korteweg-de Vries equation plus random phase corrections. We also derive an asymptotic expression for the scattered component. Finally numerical simulations will be shown to illustrate the theoretical results. This is joint work with Walter Craig and Catherine Sulem.

Analysis of the Navier-Stokes and Complex Fluids Flow (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
In this talk, we discuss the dynamics of fluid flow generated by the Navier-Stokes equations or, more generally, by models describing complex fluid flows. Besides classical questions concerning well-posedness of the underlying equations, we investigate analytically models arising in the theory of free boundary value problems, viscoelastic fluids and liquid crystals.

Analysis of the Simplified Ericksen-Leslie Model for Liquid Crystals (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Consider the Ericksen-Leslie model for the flow of liquid crystals in a bounded domain $\\Omega \\subset \\R^n$. In this talk we discuss various simplifications of the general model and describe a dynamic theory for the simplified equations by analyzing it as a quasilinear system. In particular, we show the existence of a unique, global, strong solutions to this system provided the initial data are close to an equilibrium or the solution is eventually bounded in the norm of the underlying state space. In this case the solution converges exponentially to an equilibrium. Moreover, the solution is shown to be real analytic, jointly in time and space.
We further analyze a non-isothermal extension of this model safisfying the first and second law of thermodynamics and show that results of the above type hold as well in this setting.
This is joint work with M. Nesensohn, J. Prüss and K. Schade.

Equivariant degenerations of spherical modules (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Given a reductive algebraic group G and an invariant
Hilbert function h, Alexeev and Brion have defined
a moduli scheme M which parametrizes affine G-schemes X
with the property that the coordinate ring of X decomposes,
as G-module, according to the function h. The talk will
be about joint work with Bart Van Steirteghem (New York)
which studies the moduli scheme M under some additional
assumptions.

Birgit Speh (Cornell University)
Representations of reductive groups and L-functions (I) (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
This is an introduction to the theory of L-functions and in particular of the local L-factors of representations in real and complex groups. Some familiarity with infinite dimensional representations would be very helpful, but I will not assume any knowledge of number theory. We will start in the first lecture by considering L-functions for Groessen characters and classical automorphic forms, in other words for automorphic representations of G(1) and GL(2). This will motivate the definition of the local L-factors of representations of GL(1,R) and GL(2,R). Then we will discuss Rankin convolutions and define the L-factors for infinite dimensional tempered representations of GL(n,R).

Changzheng Li (IPMU)
Primitive forms via polyvector fields (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
The theory of primitive forms was introduced by Kyoji Saito in early 1980s, which was first known in singularity theory and has attracted much attention in mirror symmetry recently. In this talk, we will introduce a differential geometric approach to primitive forms, using compactly supported polyvector fields. We will first introduce the notion of primitive forms, making it acceptable to general audience. We will use the example of the mirror Laudau-Ginzberg model of P^1 to illustrate such approach. This is my joint work with Si Li and Kyoji Saito.
