Takefumi Nosaka (RIMS, Kyoto University, JSPS)
Topological interpretation of the quandle cocycle invariants of links (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
Carter et al. introduced many quandle cocycle invariants
combinatorially constructed from link-diagrams. For connected quandles of
finite order, we give a topological meaning of the invariants, without
some torsion parts. Precisely, this invariant equals a sum of "knot
colouring polynomial" and of a Z-equivariant part of the Dijkgraaf-Witten
invariant. Moreover, our approach involves applications to compute "good"
torsion subgroups of the 3-rd quandle homologies and the 2-nd homotopy
groups of rack spaces.

Toshihisa Kubo (the University of Tokyo)
Conformally invariant systems of differential operators of non-Heisenberg parabolic type (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
The wave operator in Minkowski space is a classical example of a conformally invariant differential operator.
Recently, the notion of conformality of one operator has been
generalized by Barchini-Kable-Zierau to systems of differential operators.
Such systems yield homomrophisms between generalized Verma modules. In this talk we build such systems of second-order differential operators in the maximal non-Heisenberg parabolic setting.
If time permits then we will discuss the corresponding homomorphisms between generalized Verma modules.

Changzheng Li (Kavli IPMU)
Quantum cohomology of flag varieties (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
In this talk, I will give a brief introduction to the quantum cohomology of flag varieties first. Then I will introduce a Z^2-filtration on the quantum cohomology of complete flag varieties. In the end, we will study the quantum Pieri rules for complex/symplectic Grassmannians, as applications of the Z^2-filtration.

Seminar on Geometric Complex Analysis

Damian BROTBEK (University of Tokyo)
Differential forms on complete intersections (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Brückmann and Rackwitz proved a vanishing result for particular types of differential forms on complete intersection varieties. We will be interested in the cases not covered by their result. In some cases, we will show how the space $H^0(X,S^{m_1}\Omega_X\otimes \cdots \otimes S^{m_k}\Omega_X)$ depends on the equations defining $X$, and in particular we will prove that the theorem of Brückmann and Rackwitz is optimal. The proofs are based on simple, combinatorial, cohomology computations.

Ill-posedness for the nonlinear Schr\\"odinger equations in one
space dimension
(JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
In this talk, we consider the Cauchy problems for the nonlinear Schr\\"odinger equations. In particular, we study the ill-posedness by showing that the continuous dependence on initial data does not hold. In the known results, Bejenaru-Tao (2006) considered the problem in the Sobolev spaces $H^s (\\mathbb R)$ and showed the ill-posedness when $s < -1 $. In this talk, we study the ill-posedness in the Besov space for one space dimension and in the Sobolev spaces for two space dimensions.

Derived categories and cohomological invariants II (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]

Kavli IPMU Komaba Seminar

16:30-18:00   Room #002 (Graduate School of Math. Sci. Bldg.)
Bong Lian (Brandeis University)
Period Integrals and Tautological Systems (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
We develop a global Poincar\\'e residue formula to study
period integrals of families of complex manifolds. For any compact
complex manifold $X$ equipped with a linear system $V^*$ of
generically smooth CY hypersurfaces, the formula expresses period
integrals in terms of a canonical global meromorphic top form on $X$.
Two important ingredients of this construction are the notion of a CY
principal bundle, and a classification of such rank one bundles.
We also generalize the construction to CY and general type complete
intersections. When $X$ is an algebraic manifold having a sufficiently
large automorphism group $G$ and $V^*$ is a linear representation of
$G$, we construct a holonomic D-module that governs the period
integrals. The construction is based in part on the theory of
tautological systems we have developed earlier. The approach allows us
to explicitly describe a Picard-Fuchs type system for complete
intersection varieties of general types, as well as CY, in any Fano
variety, and in a homogeneous space in particular. In addition, the
approach provides a new perspective of old examples such as CY
complete intersections in a toric variety or partial flag variety. The
talk is based on recent joint work with R. Song and S.T. Yau.

Tuesday Seminar on Topology

16:30-18:00   Room #056 (Graduate School of Math. Sci. Bldg.)
Yusuke Kuno (Tsuda College)
A generalization of Dehn twists (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
We introduce a generalization
of Dehn twists for loops which are not
necessarily simple loops on an oriented surface.
Our generalization is an element of a certain
enlargement of the mapping class group of the surface.
A natural question is whether a generalized Dehn twist is
in the mapping class group. We show some results related to this question.
This talk is partially based on a joint work
with Nariya Kawazumi (Univ. Tokyo).

Yves Benoist (CNRS, Orsay)
Random walk on reductive groups II (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.

Smooth P1-fibrations and Campana-Peternell conjecture (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
We give a complete classification of smooth P1-fibrations

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.

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.
