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.

Hung Yean Loke (National University of Singapore)
Local Theta lifts of unitary lowest weight modules to the indefinite orthogonal groups (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]

In this talk, I will discuss the local theta lifts of unitary lowest weight modules of $Sp(2p,R)$ to the indefinite orthogonal group $O(n,m)$. In a previous paper, Nishiyama and Zhu computed the associated cycles when the dual pair $Sp(2p,R) \\times O(m,n)$ lies in the stable range, ie. $2p \\leq \\min(m,n)$. In this talk, I will report on a joint work with Jiajun Ma and U-Liang Tang at NUS where we extend the computation beyond the stable range. Our approach is to analyze the coherent sheaves generated by the graded modules.
We will also need the Kobayashi's projection formula for discretely decomposable restrictions. Our study produces some interesting formulas on the $K$-types of the representations. In particular for some of these representations, the $K$-types formulas agree those in a conjecture of Vogan on the unipotent representations.

Remarks on filtrations of the singular homology of real varieties. (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
We discuss various conjectures about filtrations on the singular homology of real and complex varieties. We prove that a conjecture relating niveau filtration on Borel-Moore homology of real varieties and the image of generalized cycle maps from reduced Lawson homology is false. In the end, we discuss a certain decomposition of Borel-Haeflinger cycle map. This is a joint work with J.Heller.

Erwin Bolthausen (University of Zurich)
An iterative construction of solutions of the TAP equation (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
The TAP equation (Thouless-Anderson-Palmer) describes the so-called pure states in the Sherrington-Kirkpatrick model. A mathematical rigorous derivation of the equation exists only in the high temperature regime. We propose an interative construction of solutions of the equations which is shown to converge up to the de Almayda-Thouless line. The iteration makes sense also beyond this line, but it fails to converge. However, some properties of the iteration can also been proved beyond the AT-line.

Wolfgang Koenig (Weierstrass Institute Berlin)
Eigenvalue order statistics and mass concentration in the parabolic Anderson model (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
We consider the random Schr\\"odinger operator on the lattice with i.i.d. potential, which is double-exponentially distributed. In a large box, we look at the lowest eigenvalues, together with the location of the centering of the corresponding eigenfunction, and derive a Poisson process limit law, after suitable rescaling and shifting, towards an explicit Poisson point process. This is a strong form of Anderson localization at the bottom of the spectrum. Since the potential is unbounded, also the eigenvalues are, and it turns out that the gaps between them are much larger than of inverse volume order. We explain an application to concentration properties of the corresponding Cauchy problem, the parabolic Anderson model. In fact, it will turn out that the total mass of the solution comes from just one island, asymptotically for large times. This is joint work in progress with Marek Biskup (Los Angeles and Budweis).

Nonabelian p-adic Hodge theory and Frobenius (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Some time ago, I constructed a relation between Higgs-bundles and p-adic etale sheaves, on curves over a p-adic field. This corresponds (say in the abelian case) to a Hodge-Tate picture. In the lecture I try to explain one way to introduce Frobenius into the theory. We do not get a complete theory but at least can treat p-adic sheaves close to trivial.
