Construction of coassociative submanifolds (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
The notion of coassociative submanifolds is defined as the special class of the minimal submanifolds in G_2 manifolds. In this talk, we introduce the method to construct coassociative submanifolds by using the symmetry of the Lie group action. As an application, we give explicit examples in the 7-dimensional Euclidean space and in the anti-self-dual bundle over the 4-sphere.

Takahiro Kitayama (RIMS, Kyoto University,JSPS PD)
The virtual fibering theorem and sutured manifold hierarchies (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
In 2007 Agol showed that every irreducible 3-manifold whose fundamental
group is nontrivial and virtually residually finite rationally solvable
(RFRS) is virtually fibered. In the proof he used the theory of
least-weight taut normal surfaces introduced and developed by Oertel and
Tollefson-Wang. We give another proof using complexities of sutured
manifolds. This is a joint work with Stefan Friedl (University of
Cologne).

On Fano fourfolds with nef vector bundles $Λ^2T_X$ (JAPANESE)

By using results about extremal contractions on smooth fourfolds, we give a classification of fano fourfolds whose the second exterior power of tangent bundles are numerically effective.

Residues of meromorphic differential forms (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
The purpose of the talk is to discuss several interesting aspects
of the classical residue theory originated by H. Poincar\\'e, J. de Rham and J. Leray and their followers. Focus topics of our studies are some of the less known applications, developed by the author in the past few years in complex analysis, topology and geometry of singular varieties and in the theory of differential equations. Almost all considerations are based essentially on properties of a special class of meromorphic differential forms called logarithmic or multi-logarithmic forms.

Perturbed Besov spaces by short-range type potential
in exterior domains (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
In this talk we will define perturbed Besov spaces by a short-range potential over exterior domains. These spaces will be available for obtaining the Strichartz estimates of wave equation with a potential in exterior domains.
We will pay attention to observe the equivalence relation between the perturbed Besov spaces and the free ones.
Sugimoto Mitsuru (Nagoya University) 14:40-16:00
Optimal constants and extremisers for some smoothing estimates (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
Our purpose is to study the optimal constant and extremising initial data for a broad class of smoothing estimates for solutions of linear dispersive equations.
Firstly, we discuss the existence/nonexistence of extremisers and then we provide an explicit formula and new observations for the optimal constant.
The talk is based on joint work with Neal Bez (University of Birmingham).
Victor I. Burenkov (Russia/United Kingdom) 16:30-17:50
Spectral stability of the p-Laplacian (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
Dependence of the eigenvalues of the p-Laplacian upon domain perturbation will be under discussion. Namely Lipschitz-type estimates for deviation of the eigenvalues following a domain perturbation will be presented. Such estimates are obtained for the class of open sets admitting open sets with arbitrarily strong degeneration and are expressed in terms of suitable measures of vicinity of two open sets, such as the \\lq\\lq atlas distance" between these sets or the \\lq\\lq lower Hausdor-Pompeiu
deviation" of their boundaries. In the case of open sets with Holder continuous boundaries, our results essentially improve a result known for the rst eigenvalue [2].
Joint work with P. D. Lamberti. The results were recently published in [1].
Supported by the grant of RFBR (project 08-01-00443).

Tuning parameter selection in sparse regression modeling (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
In sparse regression modeling via regularization such as the lasso, it is important to select appropriate values of tuning parameters including regularization parameters. The choice of tuning parameters can be viewed as a model selection and evaluation problem. Mallows' Cp type criteria may be used as a tuning parameter selection tool in lasso type regularization methods, for which the concept of degrees of freedom plays a key role. In this talk, we propose an efficient algorithm that computes the degrees of freedom by extending the generalized path seeking algorithm. Our procedure allows us to construct model selection criteria for evaluating models estimated by regularization with a wide variety of convex and nonconvex penalties. The proposed methodology is investigated through the analysis of real data and Monte Carlo simulations. Numerical results show that Cp criterion based on our algorithm performs well in various situations.

An explicit construction of spherical designs on S^3 (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
The existence of spherical t-designs on S^d for any t and d are proved by Seymour--Zaslavsky in 1984.
However, explicit constructions of spherical designs were not known for d > 2 and large t.
In this talk, for a given spherical t-design Y on S^2, we give an
algorithm to make a spherical 2t-design X on S^3 which maps Y by a Hopf map. In particular, by combining with the results of Kuperberg in 2005, we have an explicit construction of spherical t-designs on S^3 for any t.

Hofer-Zehnder capacity and a Hamiltonian circle action with noncontractible orbits (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
Hofer-Zehnder (HZ) capacity is an invariant of symplectic manifolds, which is important in symplectic topology and Hamiltonian dynamics. The energy-capacity inequality (due to Hofer and many others) claims that HZ capacity of a domain is bounded from above by its dispalcement energy.
In this talk, we prove a variant of this inequality, which is applicable to nondisplaceable domains. We also give some applications, including case of disc cotangent bundles.

Francis Nier (Univ. Rennes 1)
About the method of characteristics (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
While studying the mean field dynamics of a systems of bosons, one is led to solve a transport equation for a probability measure in an infinite dimensional phase-space. Since those probability measures are characterized after testing with cylindrical or polynomial observables, which make classes which are not invariant after composing with a nonlinear flow. Thus the standard method of characteristics for transport equations cannot be extended at once to the infinite dimensional case. A solution comes from techniques developed for optimal transport and a probabilistic interpretation of trajectories.

Frank Lutz (Technische Universität Berlin)
Discrete Topologgy of Cellular Microstructures
and Complicatedness Measurements for Cell Complexes (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
Our first aim is to use methods from discrete and geometric topology
to recover structural information from the composition of
monocrystalline materials that have a periodic foam structure
(such as gas hydrates and transition metal alloys) and also of
polycrystalline materials (such as metals and certain ceramics).

For more general complexes, even with a billion of faces, homological
information can be obtained with computational homology packages
such as CHomP or RedHom. These packages extensively use discrete Morse
theory as a preprocessing step. Although it is NP-hard to find optimal
discrete Morse functions, most data appears to be easy and it is
in fact hard to construct ``complicated'' examples. As we will see,
random discrete Morse theory will allow us to measure the
``complicatedness'' of complexes.

The Mukai conjecture for log Fano manifolds (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
The concept of log Fano manifolds is one of the most natural generalization of the concept of Fano manifolds. We will give some structure theorems of log Fano manifolds. For example, we will show that the Mukai conjecture for Fano manifolds implies the `log Mukai conjecture' for log Fano manifolds.

Elliott Lieb (Princeton Univ.)
Topics in quantum entropy and entanglement (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Several recent results on quantum entropy and the uncertainty
principle will be discussed. This is partly joint work with Eric Carlen
on lower bounds for entanglement, which has no classical analog, in terms
of the negative of the conditional entropy, S1 - S12, whose negativity,
when it occurs, also has no classical analog. (see arXiv:1203.4719)
It is also partly joint work with Rupert Frank on the uncertaintly
principle for quantum entropy which compares the quantum von Neumann
entropy with the classical entropies with respect to two different
bases. We prove an extension to the product of two and three spaces, which
has applications in quantum information theory. (see arxiv:1204.0825)

A geometric approach to the Johnson homomorphisms (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
We re-construct the Johnson homomorphisms as an embeddig of the Torelli
group
into the completed Goldman-Turaev Lie bialgebra. Then the image is
included in the
kernel of the Turaev cobracket. In the case where the boundary is
connected,
the Turaev cobracket clarifies a geometric meaning of the Morita traces.
Time permitting, we also discuss the case of holed discs.
This talk is based on a joint work with Yusuke Kuno (Tsuda College).

Asymptotic expansion of ruin probability under Lévy insurance risks (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
An asymptotic expansion formula of the ultimate ruin probability under L\\'evy insurance risks
is given as the loading factor tends to zero. The formula is obtained via the Edgeworth type expansion of
the compound geometric random sum. We give higher-order expansions of the ruin probability with a certain validity.
This allows us to evaluate quantile of the ruin function, which is nicely applied to estimate the VaR-type risk measure due to ruin.

Quasi-Bayesian analysis of nonparametric instrumental variables models (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
This paper aims at developing a quasi-Bayesian analysis
of the nonparametric instrumental variables model, with a focus on the
asymptotic properties of quasi-posterior distributions. In this paper,
instead of assuming a distributional assumption on the data generating
process, we consider a quasi-likelihood induced from the conditional
moment restriction, and put priors on the function-valued parameter.
We call the resulting posterior quasi-posterior, which corresponds to
``Gibbs posterior'' in the literature. Here we shall focus on sieve
priors, which are priors that concentrate on finite dimensional sieve
spaces. The dimension of the sieve space should increase as the sample
size. We derive rates of contraction and a non-parametric Bernstein-von
Mises type result for the quasi-posterior distribution, and rates of
convergence for the quasi-Bayes estimator defined by the posterior
expectation. We show that, with priors suitably chosen, the
quasi-posterior distribution (the quasi-Bayes estimator) attains the
minimax optimal rate of contraction (convergence, respectively). These
results greatly sharpen the previous related work.
