smooth morphism of relative dimension one.
Furthermore, we consider relations of the result with Campana-Peternell conjecture

Kernel of the monodromy operator for semistable curves (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
For a semistable curve, we study the action of the monodromy operator on the first log-crystalline cohomology group. In particular we examine the relation between the kernel of the monodromy operator and the first rigid cohomology group, in the case of trivial coefficients, giving a new proof of a theorem of B. Chiarellotto and in the case of certain unipotent F-isocrystals as coefficients.
This is a joint work in progress with B. Chiarellotto, R. Coleman and A. Iovita.

Inasa Nakamura (Gakushuin University, JSPS)
Triple linking numbers and triple point numbers
of torus-covering $T^2$-links
(JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
The triple linking number of an oriented surface link was defined as an
analogical notion of the linking number of a classical link. A
torus-covering $T^2$-link $\\mathcal{S}_m(a,b)$ is a surface link in the
form of an unbranched covering over the standard torus, determined from
two commutative $m$-braids $a$ and $b$.
In this talk, we consider $\\mathcal{S}_m(a,b)$ when $a$, $b$ are pure
$m$-braids ($m \\geq 3$), which is a surface link with $m$-components. We
present the triple linking number of $\\mathcal{S}_m(a,b)$ by using the
linking numbers of the closures of $a$ and $b$. This gives a lower bound
of the triple point number. In some cases, we can determine the triple
point numbers, each of which is a multiple of four.

GCOE lecture series

Yves Benoist (CNRS, Orsay)
Random walk on reductive groups. (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
The asymptotic behavior of the sum of real numbers chosen independantly with same probability law is controled by many classical theorems: Law of Large Numbers, Central Limit Theorem, Law of Iterated Logarithm, Local Limit Theorem, Large deviation Principle, 0-1 Law,... In these introductory talks I will recall these classical results and explain their analogs for products of matrices chosen independantly with same probability law, when the action of the support of the law is semisimple. We will see that the dynamics of the corresponding action on the flag variety is a crucial tool for studying these non-commutative random walks.

Mihnea Popa (University of Illinois at Chicago)
Generic vanishing and linearity via Hodge modules (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
I will explain joint work with Christian Schnell, in which we extend the fundamental results of generic vanishing theory (for instance for the canonical bundle of a smooth projective variety) to bundles of holomorphic forms and to rank one local systems, where parts of the theory have eluded previous efforts. To achiever this, we bring all of the old and new results under the same roof by enlarging the scope of generic vanishing theory to the study of filtered D-modules associated to mixed Hodge modules. Besides Saito's vanishing and direct image theorems for Hodge modules, an important input is the Laumon-Rothstein Fourier transform for bundles with integrable connection.

Harald Niederreiter (RICAM, Austrian Academy of Sciences)
Low-discrepancy sequences and algebraic curves over finite fields (I) (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
This is the second of the four lectures. The first one is Colloquium talk on May 25th 16:30--17:30 at 002.

Abstract from Colloquium:
Quasi-Monte Carlo (QMC) methods are deterministic analogs of statistical Monte Carlo
methods in computational mathematics. QMC methods employ evenly distributed
low-discrepancy sequences instead of the random samples used in Monte Carlo methods.
For many types of computational problems, QMC methods are more efficient than
Monte Carlo methods. After a general introduction to QMC methods, the talk focuses
on the problem of constructing low-discrepancy sequences which has fascinating links
with subjects such as finite fields, error-correcting codes, and algebraic curves.

Harmonic Analysis Komaba Seminar

Kiko Kawamura (University of North Texas) 13:30-15:00
The Takagi function - a survey (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
More than a century has passed since Takagi published his simple example of a continuous but nowhere differentiable function,
yet Takagi's function -- as it is now commonly referred
to despite repeated rediscovery
by mathematicians in the West -- continues to inspire, fascinate and puzzle researchers as never before.
In this talk, I will give not only an overview of the history and known characteristics of the function,
but also discuss some of the fascinating applications it has found -- some quite recently! -- in such diverse areas of mathematics as number theory, combinatorics, and analysis.
Yutaka Terasawa (The University of Tokyo) 15:30-17:00
Dyadic, classical and martingale harmonic analysis II (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
In a filtered measure space, we investigate the characterization of weights for which positive operators and maximal operators are bounded.

For this, a refinement of Carleson embedding theorem is introduced in this setting. Sawyer type characterization of weights for which a two-weight norm inequality for a generalized Doob's maximal operator holds is established by an application of our Carleson embedding theorem. If time permits, we would like to mention Hyt\\"onen-P\\'erez type sharp one-weight estimate of Doob's
maximal operator which is derived from our two-weight characterization.
This talk is based on a joint work with Professor Hitoshi Tanaka
(The University of Tokyo).

Quasi-Monte Carlo methods: deterministic is often better than random (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Quasi-Monte Carlo (QMC) methods are deterministic analogs of statistical Monte Carlo methods in computational mathematics. QMC methods employ evenly distributed low-discrepancy sequences instead of the random samples used in Monte Carlo methods. For many types of computational problems, QMC methods are more efficient than Monte Carlo methods. After a general introduction to QMC methods, the talk focuses on the problem of constructing low-discrepancy sequences which has fascinating links with subjects such as finite fields, error-correcting codes, and algebraic curves.

This talk also serves as the first talk of the four lecture series. The other three are on 5/28, 5/29, 5/30, 14:50-16:20 at room 123.

Xingfei Xiang (East China Normal University)
$L^p$ Estimates of the Vector Fields and their Applications (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
For $1< p < \\infty$, the estimates of $W^{1,p}$ norm of the vector fields in bounded domains in $\\mathbb R^3$ in terms of their divergence and curl have been well studied. In this talk, we shall present the $L^{{3}/{2}}$ estimates of vector fields with the $L^1$ norm of the $\\curl$ in bounded domains. By a similar discussion, we establish the $L^p$ estimates of the vector fields for $1 < p < \\infty$. As an application of the $L^p$ estimates, the Global $\\dv-\\curl$ lemma in Sobolev spaces of negative indices is given.

Kentaro Mitsui (University of Tokyo)
Simply connected elliptic surfaces (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
We characterize simply connected elliptic surfaces by their singular fibers in any characteristic case. To this end, we study orbifolds of curves, local canonical bundle formula, and resolutions of multiple fibers. The result was known for the complex analytic case. Our method can be applied to the rigid analytic case.

Norbert Pozar (Graduate School of Mathematical Sciences, The University of Tokyo)
Viscosity solutions for nonlinear elliptic-parabolic problems (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
We introduce a notion of viscosity solutions for a general class of
elliptic-parabolic phase transition problems. These include the
Richards equation, which is a classical model in filtration theory.
Existence and uniqueness results are proved via the comparison
principle. In particular, we show existence and stability properties
of maximal and minimal viscosity solutions for a general class of
initial data. These results are new even in the linear case, where we
also show that viscosity solutions coincide with the regular weak
solutions introduced in [Alt&Luckhaus 1983]. This talk is based on a
recent work with Inwon Kim.

Hiroshi Iritani (Kyoto University)
Gamma Integral Structure in Gromov-Witten theory (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
The quantum cohomology of a symplectic
manifold undelies a certain integral local system
defined by the Gamma characteristic class.
This local system originates from the natural integral
local sysmem on the B-side under mirror symmetry.
In this talk, I will explain its relationships to the problem
of analytic continuation of Gromov-Witten theoy (potentials),
including crepant resolution conjecture, LG/CY correspondence,
modularity in higher genus theory.

Taku Suzuki (Waseda University)
Characterizations of projective spaces and hyperquadrics
(JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
After Mori's works on Hartshorne's conjecture, many results to
characterize projective spaces and hyperquadrics in terms of
positivity properties of the tangent bundle have been provided.
Kov\\'acs' conjecture states that smooth complex projective
varieties are projective spaces or hyperquadrics if the $p$-th
exterior product of their tangent bundle contains the $p$-th
exterior product of an ample vector bundle. This conjecture is
the generalization of many preceding results. In this talk, I will
explain the idea of the proof of Kov\\'acs' conjecture for varieties
with Picard number one by using a method of slope-stabilities
of sheaves.

Emanuel Scheidegger (The University of Freiburg)
Topological Strings on Elliptic Fibrations (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
We will explain a conjecture that expresses the BPS invariants
(Gopakumar-Vafa invariants) for elliptically fibered Calabi-Yau
threefolds in terms of modular forms. In particular, there is a
recursion relation which governs these modular forms. Evidence comes
from the polynomial formulation of the higher genus topological string
amplitudes with insertions.
