Clara Loeh (Univ. Regensburg)
Functorial semi-norms on singular homology (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Functorial semi-norms on singular homology add metric information to
homology classes that is compatible with continuous maps. In particular,
functorial semi-norms give rise to degree theorems for certain classes
of manifolds; an invariant fitting into this context is Gromov's
simplicial volume. On the other hand, knowledge about mapping degrees
allows to construct functorial semi-norms with interesting properties;
for example, so-called inflexible simply connected manifolds give rise
to functorial semi-norms that are non-trivial on certain simply connected
spaces.

Kernel-based Approximation Methods for Cauchy Problems of Fractional Order Partial Differential Equations (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
In this talk we present the recent development of meshless computational methods based on the use of kernel-based functions for solving various inverse and ill-posed problems. Properties of some special kernels such as harmonic kernels; kernels from the construction of fundamental and particular solutions; Green’s functions; and radial basis functions will be discussed. As an illustration, the recent work in using the method of fundamental solutions combined with the Laplace transform and the Tikhonov regularization techniques to solve Cauchy problems of Fractional Order Partial Differential Equations (FOPDEs) will be demonstrated. The main idea is to approximate the unknown solution by a linear combination of fundamental solutions whose singularities are located outside the solution domain. The Laplace transform technique is used to obtain a more accurate numerical approximation of the fundamental solutions and the L-curve method is adopted for searching an optimal regularization parameter in obtaining stable solution from measured data with noises.

Discriminants and determinant of a hypersurface of even dimension (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
The determinant of the cohomology of a smooth hypersurface
of even dimension as a quadratic character of the absolute
Galois group is computed by the discriminant of the de Rham
cohomology. They are also computed by the discriminant of a
defining polynomial. We determine the sign involved by testing
the formula for the Fermat hypersurfaces.
This is a joint work with J-P. Serre.
Dennis Eriksson (University of Gothenburg) 17:15-18:15
Multiplicities of discriminants (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
The discriminant of a homogenous polynomial is another homogenous
polynomial in the coefficients of the polynomial, which is zero
if and only if the corresponding hypersurface is singular. In
case the coefficients are in a discrete valuation ring, the
order of the discriminant (if non-zero) measures the bad
reduction. We give some new results on this order, and in
particular tie it to Bloch's conjecture/the Kato-T.Saito formula
on equality of localized Chern classes and Artin conductors. We
can precisely compute all the numbers in the case of ternary
forms, giving a partial generalization of Ogg's formula for
elliptic curves.

Catherine Oikonomides (The University of Tokyo, JSPS)
The C*-algebra of codimension one foliations which
are almost without holonomy (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Foliation C*-algebras have been defined abstractly by Alain Connes,
in the 1980s, as part of the theory of Noncommutative Geometry.
However, very few concrete examples of foliation C*-algebras
have been studied until now.
In this talk, we want to explain how to compute
the K-theory of the C*-algebra of codimension
one foliations which are "almost without holonomy",
meaning that the holonomy of all the noncompact leaves
of the foliation is trivial. Such foliations have a fairly
simple geometrical structure, which is well known thanks
to theorems by Imanishi, Hector and others. We will give some
concrete examples on 3-manifolds, in particular the 3-sphere
with the Reeb foliation, and also some slighty more
complicated examples.

Birational Geometry of O'Grady's six dimensional example over the Donaldson-Uhlenbeck compactification (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
O'Grady constructed two sporadic examples of compact irreducible symplectic Kaehler manifold, by resolving singular moduli spaces of sheaves on a K3 surface or an abelian surface. We will give a full description of the birational geometry of O'Grady's six dimensional example over the corresponding Donaldson-Uhlenbeck compactification, using an explicit calculation of certain kind of GIT quotients.
If time permits, we will also discuss an involution of the example induced by a Fourier-Mukai transformation.

Computational understanding of diverse structures in human anatomy by landmark detection in medical images (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
Robust recognition of anatomical structures in medical images is indispensable for clinical support of diagnosis and therapy. In this lecture, the diverse system of human anatomy is shortly introduced first. Then, the overview of detection techniques for such structures in medical images is shown. Finally, our approach of anatomical structure recognition is presented and is discussed, which is realized by a unified framework of landmark detection based on appearance model matching and MAP estimation on inter-landmark distance probabilities.

On a Sebastiani-Thom theorem for directed Fukaya categories (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
The directed Fukaya category defined by Seidel is a "
categorification" of the Milnor lattice of hypersurface singularities.
Sebastiani-Thom showed that the Milnor lattice and its monodromy behave
as tensor product for the sum of singularities. A directed Fukaya
category version of this theorem was conjectured by Auroux-Katzarkov-
Orlov (and checked for the Landau-Ginzburg mirror of P^1 \\times P^1). In
this talk I introduce the directed Fukaya category and show that a
Sebastiani-Thom type splitting holds in the case that one of the
potential is of complex dimension 1.

Vanishing cycles for the entire functions of type $A_{1/2\infty}$ and $D_{1/2\infty}$ (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
We introduce two elementary transcendental functions $f_{A_{1/2\infty}}$ and $f_{D_{1/2\infty}}$ of two variables. They have countably infinitely many critical points. Then, the vanishing cycles associated with the critical points form Dynkin diagrams of type $A_{1/2\infty}$ and $D_{1/2\infty}$. We calculate the spectral decomposition of the monodromy transformation by embedding the lattice of vanishing cycles into a Hilbert space. All these stories are connected with a new understanding of KP and KdV integral hierarchy. But the relationship is not yet clear.

A Schwarz map of Appell's $F_2$ whose monodromy group is
related to the reflection group of type $D_4$ (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
The system of differential equations for Appell's hypergeometric function $F_2(a,b,b',c,c';x,y)$ has four fundamental solutions.
Let $u_1,u_2,u_3,u_4$ be such solutions. If the monodromy group of the system is finite, the closure of the image of the Schwarz map $U(x,y)=(u_1(x,y),u_2(x,y),u_3(x,y),u_4(x,y))$
is a hypersurface $S$ of the 3-dimensional projective space ${\\bf P}^3$. Then $S$ is defined by $P(u_1,u_2,u_3,u_4)=0$ for a polynomial $P(t_1,t_2,t_3,t_4)$.
It is M. Kato (Univ. Ryukyus) who determined the parameter
$a,b,b',c,c'$ such that the monodromy group of the system for $F_2(a,b,b',c,c';x,y)$ is finite. It follows from his result that such a group is the semidirect product of an irreducible finite reflection group $G$ of rank four by an abelian group.
In this talk, we treat the system for $F_2(a,b,b',c,c';x,y)$ with
$(a,b,b',c,c')=(1/2,1/6,-1/6,1/3,2/3$. In this case, the monodromy group is the semidirect group of $G$ by $Z/3Z$, where $G$ is the reflection group of type $D_4$. The polynomial $P(t_1,t_2,t_3,t_4)$ in this case is of degree four. There are 16 ordinary singular points in the hypersurface $S$.
In the rest of my talk, I explain the background of the study.
