Combinatorial Heegaard Floer homology (ENGLISH)

**Dylan Thurston**(Columbia University)Combinatorial Heegaard Floer homology (ENGLISH)

[ Abstract ]

Heegaard Floer homology is a powerful invariant of 3- and 4-manifolds.

In 4 dimensions, Heegaard Floer homology (together with the

Seiberg-Witten and Donaldson equations, which are conjecturally

equivalent), provides essentially the only technique for

distinguishing smooth 4-manifolds. In 3 dimensions, it provides much

geometric information, like the simplest representatives of a given

homology class.

In this talk we will focus on recent progress in making Heegaard Floer

homology more computable, including a complete algorithm for computing

it for knots.

Motivic integration and wild group actions (JAPANESE)

**Takehiko Yasuda**(Osaka University)Motivic integration and wild group actions (JAPANESE)

[ Abstract ]

The cohomological McKay correspondence proved by Batyrev is the equality of an orbifold invariant

and a stringy invariant. The former is an invariant of a smooth variety with a finite group action and the latter is

an invariant of its quotient variety. Denef and Loeser gave an alternative proof of it which uses the motivic integration theory developped by themselves.

Then I pushed forward with their study by generalizing the motivic integration to

Deligne-Mumford stacks and reformulating the cohomological McKay correspondence from the viewpoint of

the birational geometry of stacks.

However all of these are about tame group actions (the order of a group is not divisible by the characteristic of the base field),

and the wild (= not tame) case has remained unexplored.

In this talk, I will explain my attempt to examine the simplest situation of the wild case. Namely linear actions of a cyclic group

of order equal to the characteristic of the base field are treated. A remarkable new phenomenon is that the space of generalized

arcs is a fibration over an infinite dimensional space with infinite dimensional fibers, where the base space is the space of

Artin-Schreier extensions of $k((t))$, the field of Laurent series.

Pseudo-Anosov mapping classes with small dilatation (ENGLISH)

**Eriko Hironaka**(Florida State University)Pseudo-Anosov mapping classes with small dilatation (ENGLISH)

[ Abstract ]

A mapping class is a homeomorphism of an oriented surface

to itself modulo isotopy. It is pseudo-Anosov if the lengths of essential

simple closed curves under iterations of the map have exponential growth

rate. The growth rate, an algebraic integer of degree bounded with

respect to the topology of the surface, is called the dilatation of the

mapping class. In this talk we will discuss the minimization problem

for dilatations of pseudo-Anosov mapping classes, and give two general

constructions of pseudo-Anosov mapping classes with small dilatation.

Around the Mordell-Lang conjecture in positive characteristic (ENGLISH)

**Damian Rossler**(CNRS, Universite de Toulouse)Around the Mordell-Lang conjecture in positive characteristic (ENGLISH)

[ Abstract ]

Let V be a subvariety of an abelian variety A over C and let G\\subseteq A(C) be a subgroup. The classical Mordell-Lang conjecture predicts that if V is of general type and G\\otimesQ is finite dimensional, then V\\cap G is not Zariski dense in V. This statement contains the Mordell conjecture as well as the Manin-Mumford conjecture (for curves). The positive characteristic analog of the Mordell-Lang conjecture makes sense, when A is supposed to have no subquotient, which is defined over a finite field. This positive characteristic analog was proven in 1996 by E. Hrushovski using model-theoretic methods. We shall discuss the prehistory and context of this proof. We shall also discuss the proof (due to the speaker) of the fact that in positive characteristic, the Manin-Mumford conjecture implies the Mordell-Lang conjecture (whereas this seems far from true in characteristic 0).

We discuss homology of symplectic derivation Lie algebras of

Riemann surfaces and metric graphs.

Multi linear formulation of differential geometry and matrix regularizations (ENGLISH)

**Jens Hoppe**(Sogang University / KTH Royal Institute of Technology)Multi linear formulation of differential geometry and matrix regularizations (ENGLISH)

[ Abstract ]

We prove that many aspects of the differential geometry of embedded Riemannian manifolds can be formulated in terms of multi linear algebraic structures on the space of smooth functions. In particular, we find algebraic expressions for Weingarten's formula, the Ricci curvature and the Codazzi-Mainardi equations.

For matrix analogues of embedded surfaces we define discrete curvatures and Euler characteristics, and a non-commutative Gauss–Bonnet theorem is shown to follow. We derive simple expressions for the discrete Gauss curvature in terms of matrices representing the embedding coordinates, and a large class of explicit examples is provided.

Cell decomposition of homotopy Deligne-Mumford. (ENGLISH)

**R. Penner**(Aarhus/Caltech)Cell decomposition of homotopy Deligne-Mumford. (ENGLISH)

[ Abstract ]

A long-standing problem has been to extend the ideal cell decomposition of Riemann's moduli space to its compactification by stable curves. In joint work with Doug LaFountain, we have solved this problem with an explicit generalization of fatgraphs. The solution immediately provides a construction of odd-degree cycles, which are conjectured to be non-trivial, thus addressing yet another long-standing issue.
