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.

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)

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.

Yoshihiko Mitsumatsu (Chuo University)
Leafwise symplectic structures on Lawson's Foliation on the 5-sphere (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
We are going to show that Lawson's foliation on the 5-sphere
admits a smooth leafwise symplectic sturcture. Historically, Lawson's
foliation is the first one among foliations of codimension one which are
constructed on the 5-sphere. It is obtained by modifying the Milnor
fibration associated with the Fermat type cubic polynominal in three
variables.
Alberto Verjovsky proposed a question whether if the Lawson's
foliation or slighty modified ones admit a leafwise smooth symplectic
structure and/or a leafwise complex structure. As Lawson's one has a
Kodaira-Thurston nil 4-manifold as a compact leaf, the question can not
be solved simultaneously both for the symplectic and the complex cases.
The main part of the construction is to show that the Fermat type
cubic surface admits an `end-periodic' symplectic structure, while the
natural one as an affine surface is conic at the end. Even though for
the other two families of the simple elliptic hypersurface singularities
almost the same construction works, at present, it seems very limited
where a Stein manifold admits an end-periodic symplectic structure. If
the time allows, we also discuss the existence of such structures on
globally convex symplectic manifolds.

TAKAGI, Shunsuke (Graduate School of Mathematical Sciences, University of Tokyo)
Application of positive characteristic methods to singularity theory (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
As an application of positive characteristic methods to singularity theory, I will talk about a characterization of singularities in characteristic zero using Frobenius maps. Log canonical singularities form a class of singularities associated to the minimal model program. It is conjectured that they correspond to $F$-pure singularities, which form a class of singularities defined via splitting of Frobenius maps. In this talk, I will explain a recent progress on this conjecture, especially its connection to another conjecture on ordinary reductions of Calabi-Yau varieties defined over number fields.
