On a problem of Matsumoto and Tamagawa concerning monodromic fullness of hyperbolic curves (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
In this talk, we will discuss the following problem posed by Makoto Matsumoto and Akio Tamagawa concerning monodromic fullness of hyperbolic curves.

For a hyperbolic curve X over a number field, are the following three conditions equivalent?
(A) For any prime number l, X is quasi-l-monodromically full.
(B) There exists a prime number l such that X is l-monodromically full.
(C) X is l-monodromically full for all but finitely many prime numbers l.

The property of being (quasi-)monodromically full may be regarded as an analogue for hyperbolic curves of the property of not admitting complex multiplication for elliptic curves, and the above equivalence may be regarded as an analogue for hyperbolic curves of the following result concerning the Galois representation on the Tate module of an elliptic curve over a number field proven by Jean-Pierre Serre.

For an elliptic curve E over a number field, the following four conditions are equivalent:
(0) E does not admit complex multiplication.
(1) For any prime number l, the image of the l-adic Galois representation associated to E is open.
(2) There exists a prime number l such that the l-adic Galois representation associated to E is surjective.
(3) The l-adic Galois representation associated to E is surjective for all but finitely many prime numbers l.

In this talk, I will present some results concerning the above problem in the case where the given hyperbolic curve is of genus zero. In particular, I will give an example of a hyperbolic curve of type (0,4) over a number field which satisfies condition (C) but does not satisfy condition (A).

Nobuhiro Nakamura (The University of Tokyo)
Pin^-(2)-monopole equations and intersection forms with local coefficients of 4-manifolds (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
We introduce a variant of the Seiberg-Witten equations, Pin^-(2)-monopole equations, and explain its applications to intersection forms with local coefficients of 4-manifolds.
The first application is an analogue of Froyshov's results on 4-manifolds which have definite forms with local coefficients.
The second one is a local coefficient version of Furuta's 10/8-inequality.
As a corollary, we construct nonsmoothable spin 4-manifolds satisfying Rohlin's theorem and the 10/8-inequality.

Borcherds products in monstrous moonshine. (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
During the 1980s, Koike, Norton, and Zagier independently found an
infinite product expansion for the difference of two modular j-functions
on a product of half planes. Borcherds showed that this product identity
is the Weyl denominator formula for an infinite dimensional Lie algebra
that has an action of the monster simple group by automorphisms, and used
this action to prove the monstrous moonshine conjectures.

I will describe a more general construction that yields an infinite
product identity and an infinite dimensional Lie algebra for each element
of the monster group. The above objects then arise as the special cases
assigned to the identity element. Time permitting, I will attempt to
describe a connection to conformal field theory.

K3 surfaces and log del Pezzo surfaces of index three (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
Alexeev and Nikulin have classified log del Pezzo surfaces of index 1 and 2 by using the classification of non-symplectic involutions on K3 surfaces. We want to discuss the generalization of this result to the index 3 cases. In this case we are also able to construct log del Pezzos $Z$ from K3 surfaces $X$, but the converse is not necessarily true. The condition on $Z$ is exactly the "multiple smooth divisor property", which we will define. Our theorem is the classification of log del Pezzo surfaces of index 3 with this property.

The idea of the proof is similar to that of Alexeev and Nikulin, but the methods are different because of the existence of singularities: although the singularity is mild, the description of nef cone by reflection groups cannot be used. Instead
we construct and analyze good elliptic fibrations on K3 surfaces $X$ and use it to obtain the classification. It includes a partial but geometric generalization of the classification of non-symplectic automorphisms of order three, recently done by Artebani, Sarti and Taki.

Tomoo Matsumura (Cornell University)
Hamiltonian torus actions on orbifolds and orbifold-GKM theorem (joint
work with T. Holm) (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
When a symplectic manifold M carries a Hamiltonian torus R action, the
injectivity theorem states that the R-equivariant cohomology of M is a
subring of the one of the fixed points and the GKM theorem allows us
to compute this subring by only using the data of 1-dimensional
orbits. The results in the first part of this talk are a
generalization of this technique to Hamiltonian R actions on orbifolds
and an application to the computation of the equivariant cohomology of
toric orbifolds. In the second part, we will introduce the equivariant
Chen-Ruan cohomology ring which is a symplectic invariant of the
action on the orbifold and explain the injectivity/GKM theorem for this ring.

On a colored Khovanov bicomplex (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
We discuss the existence of a bicomplex which is a Khovanov-type
complex associated with categorification of a colored Jones polynomial.
This is an answer to the question proposed by A. Beliakova and S. Wehrli.
Then the second term of the spectral sequence of the bicomplex corresponds
to the Khovanov-type homology group. In this talk, we explain how to define
the bicomplex. If time permits, we also define a colored Rasmussen invariant
by using another spectral sequence of the colored Jones polynomial.

Self-corresponences of K3 surfaces via moduli of sheaves (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
In series of our papers with Carlo Madonna (2002--2008) we described self-correspondences via moduli of sheaves with primitive isotropic Mukai vectors for K3 surfaces with Picard number one or two. Here, we give a natural and functorial answer to the same problem for arbitrary Picard number of K3 surfaces. As an application, we characterize in terms of self-correspondences via moduli of sheaves K3 surfaces with reflective Picard lattices, that is when the automorphism group of the lattice is generated by reflections up to finite index. See some details in arXiv:0810.2945.

Tatsuo Suwa (Hokkaido Univ*)
Excess intersections and residues in improper dimension (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
This talk concerns localization of characteristic classes and associated residues, in the context of intersection theory and residue theory of singular holomorphic foliations. The localization comes from the vanishing of certain characteristic forms, usually caused by the existence of some geometric object, away from the "singular set" of the object. This gives rise to residues in the homology of the singular set and residue theorems relating local and global invariants. In the generic situation, i.e., if the dimension of the singular set is "proper", we have a reasonable understanding of the residues. We indicate how to cope with the problem when the dimension is "excessive" (partly a joint work with F. Bracci).

Characterising bumping points on deformation spaces of Kleinian groups (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
It is known that components of the interior of a deformation space of a Kleinian group can bump, and a component of the interior can bump itself, on the boundary of the deformation space.
Anderson-Canary-McCullogh gave a necessary and sufficient condition for two components to bump.
In this talk, I shall give a criterion for points on the boundary to be bumping points.

Invariant differential operators on the sphere (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
The circle is acted upon by the rotation group SO(2) and there are plenty of differential operators invariant under this action. But the circle is also acted upon by SL(2,R) and this larger symmetry group cuts down the list of invariant differential operators to something smaller but more interesting! I shall explain what happens and how this phenomenon generalises to spheres. These constructions are part of a general theory but have numerous unexpected applications, for example in suggesting a new stable finite-element scheme in linearised elasticity (due to Arnold, Falk, and Winther).

How to recognise the geodesics of a metric connection (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
The geodesics on a Riemannian manifold form a distinguished family of curves, one in every direction through every point. Sometimes two metrics can provide the same family of curves: the Euclidean metric and the round metric on the hemisphere have this property. It is also possible that a family of curves does not arise from a metric at all. Following a classical procedure due to Roger Liouville, I shall explain how to tell these cases apart on a surface. This is joint work with Robert Bryant and Maciej Dunajski.

The Malliavin calculus on configuration spaces and applications (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
It is planned to discuss first a general scheme of the Malliavin
calculus on an abstract measurable
manifold with minimal assumptions about the manifold.
Then a practical realization of this scheme will be discussed in
several concrete examples with emphasis
on configuration spaces, i.e., spaces of locally finite configurations
in a given manifold (for example, just
a finite-dimensional Euclidean space), which can be alternatively
described as the spaces of integer-valued
discrete measures equipped with suitable differential structures.
No acquaintance with the Malliavin calculus and differential geometry
is assumed.
