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).

Michael Eastwood (Australian National University)
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.

Vladimir Bogachev (Moscow)
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.

Tuesday Seminar on Topology

16:30-18:00   Room #056 (Graduate School of Math. Sci. Bldg.)
Daniel Ruberman (Brandeis University)
Periodic-end manifolds and SW theory (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
We study an extension of Seiberg-Witten invariants to
4-manifolds with the homology of S^1 \\times S^3. This extension has
many potential applications in low-dimensional topology, including the
study of the homology cobordism group. Because b_2^+ =0, the usual
strategy for defining invariants does not work--one cannot disregard
reducible solutions. In fact, the count of solutions can jump in a
family of metrics or perturbations. To remedy this, we define an
index-theoretic counter-term that jumps by the same amount. The
counterterm is the index of the Dirac operator on a manifold with a
periodic end modeled at infinity by the infinite cyclic cover of the
manifold. This is joint work with Tomasz Mrowka and Nikolai Saveliev.

Lie Groups and Representation Theory

Twistor theory and the harmonic hull (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Harmonic functions are real-analytic and so automatically extend from being functions of real variables to being functions of complex variables. But how far do they extend? This question may be answered by twistor theory, the Penrose transform, and associated geometry. I shall base the constructions on a formula of Bateman from 1904. This is joint work with Feng Xu.

Atsushi Ito (Univ. of Tokyo)
How to estimate Seshadri constants (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
Seshadri constant is an invariant which measures the positivities of ample line bundles. This relates with adjoint bundles, Nagata conjecture, slope stabilities, Gromov width (an invariant of symplectic manifolds) and so on. But it is very diffiult to compute or estimate Seshadri constants in general, especially in higher dimension.
In this talk, we first study Seshadri constants of toric varieties, and next consider about non-toric cases using toric degenerations. For example, good estimations are obtained for complete intersections in projective spaces.

Colloquium

16:30-17:30   Room #002 (Graduate School of Math. Sci. Bldg.)
Robin Graham (University of Washington)
Ambient metrics and exceptional holonomy (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
The holonomy of a pseudo-Riemannian metric is a subgroup of the orthogonal group which measures the structure preserved by parallel translation. Construction of pseudo-Riemannian metrics whose holonomy is an exceptional Lie group has been of great interest in recent years. This talk will outline a construction of metrics in dimension 7 whose holonomy is contained in the split real form of the exceptional group $G_2$. The datum for the construction is a generic real-analytic 2-plane field on a manifold of dimension 5; the metric in dimension 7 arises as the ambient metric of a conformal structure on the 5-manifold defined by Nurowski in terms of the 2-plane field.

Dan Popovici (Toulouse)
Limits of Moishezon Manifolds under Holomorphic Deformations (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
We prove that if all the fibres, except one, of a holomorphic family of compact complex manifolds are supposed to be Moishezon (i.e. bimeromorphic to projective manifolds), then the remaining (limit) fibre is again Moishezon. The two ingredients of the proof are the relative Barlet space of divisors contained in the fibres for which we show properness over the base of the family and the "strongly Gauduchon" (sG) metrics that we have introduced for the purpose of controlling volumes of cycles. These new metrics enjoy stability properties under both deformations and modifications and play a crucial role in obtaining a uniform control on volumes of relative divisors that prove the above-mentioned properness.

Tuesday Seminar on Topology

Kazuo Habiro (RIMS, Kyoto University)
Quantum fundamental groups and quantum representation varieties for 3-manifolds (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
We define a refinement of the fundamental groups of 3-manifolds and
a generalization of representation variety of the fundamental group
of 3-manifolds. We consider the category $H$ whose morphisms are
nonnegative integers, where $n$ corresponds to a genus $n$ handlebody
equipped with an embedding of a disc into the boundary, and whose
morphisms are the isotopy classes of embeddings of handlebodies
compatible with the embeddings of the disc into the boundaries. For
each 3-manifold $M$ with an embedding of a disc into the boundary, we
can construct a contravariant functor from $H$ to the category of
sets, where the object $n$ of $H$ is mapped to the set of isotopy
classes of embedding of the genus $n$ handlebody into $M$, compatible
with the embeddings of the disc into the boundaries. This functor can
be regarded as a refinement of the fundamental group of $M$, and we
call it the quantum fundamental group of $M$. Using this invariant, we
can construct for each co-ribbon Hopf algebra $A$ an invariant of
3-manifolds which may be regarded as (the space of regular functions
on) the representation variety of $M$ with respect to $A$.
