Damian Brotbek (University of Tokyo)
Differential equations as embedding obstructions and vanishing theorems (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Given a smooth projective variety $X$ it is natural to wonder what is the smallest integer $N$ such that one can embed $X$ into $\mathbf{P}^N$. In this talk I will first recall what can be said for any smooth projective variety, then I will explain how the existence of some particular differential equations on $X$ yields obstructions to the existence of some projective embeddings.

On Topological Blow-up (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
Topological blow-up is a method to understand non-Hausdorff spaces. We define an obstruction to Hausdorffness, and call it crack. By `blowing up' the points in crack, we can obtain better space.

Philippe G. LeFloch (Univ. Paris 6 / CNRS)
Undercompressible shocks and moving phase boundaries
(ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
I will present a study of traveling wave solutions to third-order, diffusive-dispersive equations, which arise in the modeling of complex fluid flows and represent regularization-sensitive wave patterns, especially undercompressive shock waves and moving phase boundaries. The qualitative properties of these (possibly oscillatory) traveling waves are well-understood in terms of the so-called kinetic relation, and this has led to a new theory of (nonclassical) solutions to nonlinear hyperbolic systems. Relevant papers are available at the link: www.philippelefloch.org.

Takao Satoh (Tokyo University of Science)
On the Johnson cokernels of the mapping class group of a surface (joint work with Naoya Enomoto) (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
In general, the Johnson homomorphisms of the mapping class group of a surface are used to investigate graded quotients of the Johnson filtration of the mapping class group. These graded quotients are considered as a sequence of approximations of the Torelli group. Now, there is a broad range of remarkable results for the Johnson homomorphisms.
In this talk, we concentrate our focus on the cokernels of the Johnson homomorphisms of the mapping class group. By a work of Shigeyuki Morita and Hiroaki Nakamura, it is known that an Sp-irreducible module [k] appears in the cokernel of the k-th Johnson homomorphism with multiplicity one if k=2m+1 for any positive integer m. In general, however, to determine Sp-structure of the cokernel is quite a difficult preblem.
Our goal is to show that we have detected new irreducible components in the cokernels. More precisely, we will show that there appears an Sp-irreducible module [1^k] in the cokernel of the k-th Johnson homomorphism with multiplicity one if k=4m+1 for any positive integer m.

A ramification theorem for the ratio of canonical forms of flat surfaces in hyperbolic 3-space (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
We provide an effective ramification theorem for the ratio of canonical forms of weakly complete flat fronts in the hyperbolic 3-space. As an application, we give a simple proof of the classification of complete nonsingular flat surfaces in the hyperbolic 3-space.

New perspectives on the Breuil-Mézard conjecture (joint with M. Emerton)
(ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
I will discuss joint work with Matthew Emerton on geometric approaches to the Breuil-Mézard conjecture, generalising a geometric approach of Breuil and Mézard. I will discuss a proof of the geometric version of the original conjecture, as well as work in progress on a geometric version of the conjecture which does not make use of a fixed residual representation.

The Modelling of Dislocations in the Early Stage of the Metal Fatigue (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Understanding fatigue of metal under cyclic loads is crucial for some fields in mechanical engineering, such as the design of wheels of high speed trains and the aeroplane engine. Experimentally it has been found that this type of
fatigue is closely related to a ladder shape pattern of dislocations known as a persistent slip band (PSB) at a microscopic level. In this talk, a quantitative description for the formation of PSBs is proposed from two angles: 1. the motion of a single dislocation analysed by using asymptotic expansions and numerical simulations; 2. the collective behaviour of a large number of dislocations analysed by using a method of multiple scales.

Manabu Machida (University of Michigan)
Wave Transport in Random Media and Inverse Problems (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Wave transport in random media is described by the radiative transport equation, which is a linear Boltzmann equation. Such transport phenomena are characterized by two optical parameters in the equation: the absorption and scattering coefficients. In this talk, inverse problems of determining optical parameters will be considered and the Lipschitz stability will be proved using a Carleman estimate. One application of this inverse problem is optical tomography, which detects tumors in a human body using (unlike X-ray CT scan) near-infrared light. I will also present tomographic images of lemon and lotus root slices which are obtained by numerically solving the radiative transport equation with the method of rotated reference frames.

Birational unboundedness of Q-Fano varieties and rationally connected strict Mori fiber spaces (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
It has been known that suitably restricted classes of Q-Fano varieties are bounded. I will talk about the birational unboundedness of (log terminal) Q-Fano varieties with Picard number one and of rationally connected strict Mori fiber spaces in each dimension $¥geq 3$. I will explain the idea of the proof which will be done after passing to a positive characteristic.
