The effective bound of anticanonical volume of Fano threefolds (English)
[ Abstract ]
According to Mori's program, varieties covered by rational curves are
built up from anti-canonically polarized varieties, aka Fano varieties. After fixed the
dimension and singularity type, Fano varieties form a bounded family by Birkar's proof (2016)
of Borisov-Alexeev-Borisov conjecture, which In particular implies that the anticanonical
volume -K^\dim is bounded. In this talk, we focus on canonical Fano threefolds,
where boundedness was established by Koll\'ar-Miyaoka-Mori-Takagi (2000).
Our aim is to find an effective bound of the anticanonical volume -K^3, which is
not explicit either from the work of Koll\'ar-Miyaoka-Mori-Takagi or Birkar. We will discuss
some effectiveness results related to this problem and prove that -K_X^3\leq 72 if \rho(X)\leq 2.
This partially extends early work of Mori, Mukai, Y. Prokhorov, et al.

Lectures

Sam Nariman (Northwestern University)
On the moduli space of flat symplectic surface bundles
[ Abstract ]
There are at least three different approaches to construct characteristic invariants of flat symplectic bundles. Reznikov generalized Chern-Weil theory for finite dimension Lie groups to the infinite dimensional group of symplectomorphisms. He constructed nontrivial invariants of symplectic bundles whose fibers are diffeomorphic to complex projective spaces. Kontsevich used formal symplectic geometry to build interesting classes that are not yet known to be nontrivial. Also for surface bundles whose holonomy groups preserve the symplectic form, Kotschick and Morita used the flux homomorphism to construct many nontrivial stable classes.

In this talk, we introduce infinite loop spaces whose cohomolgy groups describe the stable characteristic invariants of symplectic flat surface bundles. As an application, we give a homotopy theoretic description of
Kotschick and Morita's classes and prove a result about codimension 2 foliations that implies the nontriviality of KM classes.

Tuesday Seminar on Topology

Emmy Murphy (Northwestern University)
Loose Legendrians and arboreal singularities (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Given a Stein manifold X, under what conditions can we ensure that X is symplectomorphic to C^n? For n>2 the condition of X being diffeomorphic to C^n does not suffice, and many counterexamples have been constructed which are detected by symplectic cohomology and the Fukaya category. One might conjecture that the diffeomorphism type together with a vanishing Fukaya category characterizes C^n. While this question is currently well of of reach, we present some new partial results. The main tools we'll discuss are arboreal singularities, constructable sheaf theory, and loose Legendrians -- and how they fit together to approach this question.

Rigidity results for symplectic curvature flow (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
We continue studying a parabolic flow of almost Kähler structure introduced by Streets and Tian which naturally extends Kähler-Ricci flow onto symplectic manifolds. In a system consisting primarily of quantities related to the Chern connection we establish clean formulas for the evolutions of canonical objects. Using this we give an extended characterization of fixed points of the flow.

Jun Yoshida (The University of Tokyo)
Symmetries on algebras and Hochschild homology in view of categories of operators (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
The categorical construction of Hochschild homology by Connes reveals that the symmetric structure on the tensor product of abelian groups is essential. It means that the categorical meaning of ad-hoc generalizations of Hochschild homology in less symmetric monoidal abelian categories remains unclear. In this talk, I will propose formulation of this problem in terms of group operads introduced by Zhang. Moreover, for each group operad G, G-symmetric versions of categories of operators will be discussed. The notion plays a key role in defining Hochschild homology for homotopy algebras; such as topological Hochschild homology.

Algebraic Geometry Seminar

Xun Yu (Tianjin University)
Surface automorphisms and Salem numbers (English)
[ Abstract ]
The entropy of a surface automorphism is either zero or the
logarithm of a Salem number.
In this talk, we will discuss which Salem numbers arise in this way. We
will show that any
supersingular K3 surface in odd characteristic has an automorphism the
entropy of which is
the logarithm of a Salem number of degree 22. In particular, such
automorphisms are
not geometrically liftable to characteristic 0.

Rigidity of certain groups of circle homeomorphisms and Teichmueller spaces (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
In this talk, I explain a complex analytic method and its applications
for the study of quasisymmetric homeomorphisms of the circle by extending them to the unit disk quasiconformally.
In RIMS conference "Open Problems in Complex Geometry'' held in 2010,
I gave a talk entitled "Problems on infinite dimensional Teichmueller spaces", and
mentioned several problems on the fixed points of group actions on
the universal Teichmueller space and its subspaces, and the rigidity of conjugation of
certain groups of circle homeomorphisms.
I will report on the development of these problems since then.

Varieties with nef diagonal (English)
[ Abstract ]
For a smooth projective variety $X$, we consider when the diagonal $Δ _X$ is nef as a
cycle on $X \times X$. In particular, we give a classication of complete intersections and smooth
del Pezzo varieties where the diagonal is nef. We also study the nefness of the diagonal for
spherical varieties. This is a joint work with Taku Suzuki.

We consider the Cauchy problem of the drift-diffusion system in the whole space. Introducing the scaling critical case, we consider the solvability of the drift-diffusion system in the whole space and give some large time behavior of solutions. This talk is based on a collaboration with Masaki Kurokiba and Hiroshi Wakui.

Gap Probabilities and discrete Painlevé equations
[ Abstract ]
It is well-known that important statistical quantities, such as gap probabilities, in various discrete probabilistic models of random matrix type satisfy the so-called discrete Painlevé equations, which provides an effective way to computing them. In this talk we discuss this correspondence for a particular class of models, known as boxed plane partitions (equivalently, lozenge tilings of a hexagon). For uniform probability distribution, this is one of the most studied models of random surfaces. Borodin, Gorin, and Rains showed that it is possible to assign a very general elliptic weight to the distribution, with various degenerations of this weight corresponding to the degeneration cascade of discrete polynomial ensembles, such as Racah and Hahn ensembles and their q-analogues. This also correspond to the degeneration scheme of discrete Painlevé equations, due to Sakai. In this talk we consider the q-Hahn and q-Racah ensembles and corresponding discrete Painlevé equations of types q-P(A_{2}^{(1)}) and q-P(A_{1}^{(1)}).
This is joint work with Alisa Knizel (Columbia University)

Stephen McKeown (Princeton University)
Cornered Asymptotically Hyperbolic Spaces
[ Abstract ]
This talk will concern cornered asymptotically hyperbolic spaces, which have a finite boundary in addition to the usual infinite boundary. I will first describe the construction a normal form near the corner for these spaces. Then I will discuss formal existence and uniqueness, near the corner, of asymptotically hyperbolic Einstein metrics, with a CMC-umbilic condition imposed on the finite boundary. This is analogous to the Fefferman-Graham construction for the ordinary, non-cornered setting. Finally, I will present work in progress regarding scattering on such spaces.

Fibrations of R^3 by oriented lines
[ Abstract ]
Is it possible to cover 3-dimensional space by a collection of lines, such that no two lines intersect and no two lines are parallel? More precisely, does there exist a fibration of R^3 by pairwise skew lines? We give some examples and provide a complete topological classification of such objects, by exhibiting a deformation retract from the space of skew fibrations of R^3 to its subspace of Hopf fibrations. As a corollary of the proof we obtain Gluck and Warner's classification of great circle fibrations of S^3. We continue with some recent results regarding contact structures on R^3 which are naturally induced by skew fibrations. Finally, we discuss fibrations of R^3 which may contain parallel fibers, and discuss when such objects induce contact structures.

Criteria for good reduction of hyperbolic polycurves (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
We give good reduction criteria for hyperbolic polycurves, i.e., successive extensions of families of curves, under mild assumption. These criteria are higher dimensional versions of the good reduction criterion for hyperbolic curves given by Oda and Tamagawa. In this talk, we construct homotopy exact sequences by using intermediate quotient groups of geometric etale fundamental groups of hyperbolic polycurves.

Characteristic classes via 4-dimensional gauge theory (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
Using gauge theory, more precisely SO(3)-Yang-Mills theory and Seiberg-Witten theory, I will construct characteristic classes of 4-manifold bundles. These characteristic classes are extensions of the SO(3)-Donaldson invariant and the Seiberg-Witten invariant to families of 4-manifolds, and can detect non-triviality of smooth 4-manifold bundles. The basic idea of the construction of these characteristic classes is to consider an infinite dimensional analogue of classical characteristic classes of manifold bundles, typified by the Mumford-Morita-Miller classes for surface bundles.

Relative and equivariant Lagrangian Floer homology and Atiyah-Floer conjecture (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
Atiyah-Floer conjecture concerns a relationship between Floer homology in Gauge theory and Lagrangian Floer homology. One of its difficulty is that the symplectic manifold on wich we consider Lagrangian Floer homology is in general singular. In this talk I will explain that, by using relative and equivariant version of Lagrangian Floer homology, we can resolve this problem and can at least state the conjecture as rigorous mathematical conjecture.
