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.

Product formula for $p$-adic epsilon factors (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
I would like to talk about my recent work jointly with A. Marmora on a product formula for $p$-adic epsilon factors. In 80's Deligne conjectured that a constant appearing in the functional equation of $L$-function of $\\ell$-adic lisse sheaf can be written by means of local contributions, and proved some particular cases. This conjecture was proven later by Laumon, and was used in the Lafforgue's proof of the Langlands' program for functional filed case. In my talk, I would like to prove a $p$-adic analog of this product formula.

Donaldson-Tian-Yau's Conjecture (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
For polarized algebraic manifolds, the concept of K-stability
introduced by Tian and Donaldson is conjecturally strongly correlated
to the existence of constant scalar curvature metrics (or more
generally extremal K\\"ahler metrics) in the polarization class. This is
known as Donaldson-Tian-Yau's conjecture. Recently, a remarkable
progress has been made by many authors toward its solution. In this
talk, I'll discuss the topic mainly with emphasis on the existence
part of the conjecture.

Spectral representations and scattering for Schr\\"odinger operators on star graphs (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
We consider Schr\\"odinger operators defined on star graphs with Kirchhoff boundary conditions. Under suitable decay conditions on the potential, we construct a complete set of eigenfunctions to obtain spectral representations of the operator. The results are applied to give a time dependent formulation of the scattering theory. Also we use the spectral representation to determine an integral equation of Marchenko which is fundamental to enter into the inverse scattering problems.

Log canonical closure (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
(joint with Christopher Hacon) In this talk, we will address the problem on given a log canonical variety, how we compactify it. Our approach is via MMP. The result has a few applications. Especially I will explain the one on the moduli of stable schemes.
If time permits, I will also talk about how a similar approach can be applied to give a proof of the existence of log canonical flips and a conjecture due to Kollár on the geometry of log centers.

Masahiko Kanai (the University of Tokyo)
Rigidity of group actions via invariant geometric structures
(JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
It is a homomorphism into a FINITE dimensional Lie group that is concerned with in the classical RIGIDITY theorems such as those of Mostow and Margulis. In the meantime, differentiable GROUP ACTIONS for which we ask rigidity problems is a homomorphism into a diffeomorphism group, which is a typical example of INFINITE dimensional Lie groups. The purpose of the present talk is exhibiting several rigidity theorems for group actions in which I have been involved for years. Although quite a few fields of mathematics, such as ergodic theory, the theory of smooth dynamical systems, representation theory and so on, have made remarkable contributions to rigidity problems, I would rather emphasis geometric aspects: I would focus on those rigidity phenomenon for group actions that are observed by showing that the actions have INVARIANT GEOMETRIC STRUCTURES.
