FMSP Lectures

16:30-18:00   Room #117 (Graduate School of Math. Sci. Bldg.)
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).

On new models of real hyperbolic spaces (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
In this talk, I will introduce several new realization of the real hyperbolic spaces, using classical tools. The constructions will involve aspects of convex geometry as well as projective geometry, and they are interesting from the view point of the history of mathematics. This work belongs to a joint project with Athanase Papadopoulos.

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.

Smooth 3-manifolds in the 4-sphere (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Everyone who has studied topology knows the compact 2-manifolds that embed in the 3-sphere. One dimension up, the problem of which smooth 3-manifolds embed in the 4-sphere turns out to be much more involved with a handful of partial answers. I will describe what is known at the present moment.

A Trace Formula for Long-Range Perturbations of the Landau Hamiltonian
(Joint work with Georgi Raikov) (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
The Landau Hamiltonian describes the dynamics of a two-dimensional
charged particle subject to a constant magnetic field. Its spectrum
consists in eigenvalues of infinite multiplicity given by $B(2q+1)$, $q\\in Z_+$. We
consider perturbations of this operator by including a continuous
electric potential that decays slowly at infinity (as $|x|^{-\\rho}$, $0<\\rho<1$).
The spectrum of the perturbed operator consists of eigenvalue clusters
which accumulate to the Landau levels. We provide estimates for the
rate at which the clusters shrink as we move up the energy levels.
Further, we obtain an explicit description of the asymptotic density
of eigenvalues for asymptotically homogeneous long-range potentials in
terms of a mean-value transform of the associated homogeneous
function.

Richard Eager (Kavli IPMU)
Elliptic genera and two dimensional gauge theories (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
The elliptic genus is an important invariant of two dimensional conformal field theories that generalizes the Witten index. In this talk, I will first review the geometric meaning of the elliptic genus and Witten's GLSM construction. Then I will explain how the elliptic genus can be computed directly from a two dimensional gauge theory using localization. The central example of this talk will be the quintic threefold. The GLSM description of the quintic threefold has both a large-volume sigma model description and a Landau-Ginzburg description. I will explain how the GLSM calculation of the index reproduces the old results in these two phases. Time permitting, further applications and generalizations will be discussed.

Aggregation mechanism of biological species : from microscopic
and macroscopic viewpoints (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
There are a lot of organisms which form aggregation in nature. In order to describe the dynamics of such biological species, a particle model is often proposed, which is based on the random walk from the microscopic point of view. On the other hand, when we take population densities of biological species into account, the dynamics is expressed as partial differential equations. We see that different models are proposed according to the viewpoints which we are focusing on. In this talk, we take aggregation phenomena of biological species as an example, and introduce a relation between a microscopic particle model and a macroscopic partial differential equation model.

Two-dimensional Calderon problems for Navier-Stokes equations and Lame system (ENGLISH)

We will prove the uniqueness in determining viscosity in two-dimensional Navier-Stokes equations by Dirichlet-to-Neumann map.
Moreover, without any smallness assumption, we establish the uniqueness in determining two Lame coefficients in two-dimensional isotropic Lame system Dirichlet-to-Neumann map.

低ランク行列推定におけるベイズ推定法の性質 (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
真のパラメータが低ランク行列の構造を持つような低ランク行列推定問題を考える. 低ランク行列推定問題の例としては,低ランク行列の一部が見えている時にその残りを 推定する行列補完の問題などがある.応用としてはユーザへの推薦システムなどがある. これまでの理論解析は主にスパース正則化を用いた経験誤差最小化を対象としてきたが, 本発表ではベイズ法を考え,その統計的性質を調べる.ベイズ法においては, 正則化付き経験誤差最小化による方法とは異なるやや緩い仮定のもと, ほぼ最適な収束レートが導けることを示す.また,テンソル型データ (多次元アレイデータ)へも同様の議論が拡張可能であることも述べる.

A general formula for the discriminant of polynomials over $¥mathbb{F}_2$ determining the parity of the number of prime factors
(JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
In order to find irreducible polynomials over $\\mathbb{F}_2$ efficiently, the method using Swan's theorem is known. Swan's theorem determines the parity of the numberof irreducible factors of a polynomial $f$ over $\\mathbb{F}_2$ with no repeated root, by using the discriminant ${\\rm D}(\\tilde{f})\\pmod 8$, where $\\tilde{f}$ is a monic polynomial over $\\mathbb{Z}_2$ such that $\\tilde{f}=f\\pmod 2$. In the lecture, we will give the formula for the discriminant ${\\rm D}(\\tilde{f}) \\pmod 8$ for a polynomial $f$ over $\\mathbb{F}_2$ with no repeated root. By applying this formula to various types of polynomials, we shall get the parity of the number of irreducible factors of them.

Critical Sobolev embedding of function spaces and the real interpolation functor
(JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
We consider the endpoint case of the Sobolev embedding.
It is well known that the function spaces such as Sobolev spaces are not embedded into L^¥infty in the critical case.
One of the remedies is the Brezis-Gallouet-Wainger type
estimate. However, such an estimate involve the log term
and it can not be regarded as the norm.
In this talk, by using the real interpolation functor, we propose another formulation. We compare
the existing result with our new results.
If time permits, we mention some related results.

On volume formulae in terms of orthospectrum (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
Bridgeman-Kahn and Calegari derived formulae to compute the volumes of compact hyperbolic n-manifolds with totally geodesic boundary in terms of orthospectrum. Here the orthospectrum is the set of length of geodesics perpendicular to the boundary at both ends. The two formulae are obtained by apparently different methods. In this talk, we prove that the two volume formulae coincide. We also discuss some interesting relationship between two formulae. This work is a joint work with Greg McShane.

An explicit construction of point sets with large minimum Dick weight (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
Walsh figure of merit WAFOM($P$) is a quality measure of point sets $P$ for quasi-Monte Carlo integration constructed by a digital net method. WAFOM($P$) is bounded by the minimum Dick weight of $P^¥perp$, where the Dick weight is a generalization of Hamming weight. In this talk, we give an explicit construction of point sets with large minimum Dick weight using Niederreiter-Xing sequences and Dick's interleaving construction. These point sets are also examples of low-WAFOM point sets.

Higher-order generalization of Fukaya's Morse homotopy
invariant of 3-manifolds (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
In his article published in 1996, K. Fukaya constructed
a 3-manifold invariant by using Morse homotopy theory. Roughly, his
invariant is defined by considering several Morse functions on a
3-manifold and counting with weights the ways that the theta-graph can
be immersed such that edges follow gradient lines. We generalize his
construction to 3-valent graphs with arbitrary number of loops for
integral homology 3-spheres. I will also discuss extension of our method
to 3-manifolds with positive first Betti numbers.
