Strong solidity of factors from lattices in SO(n,1) and SU(n,1) (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Generalizing techniques found in Ozawa and Popa,
``On a class of II$_1$ factors with at most one Cartan subalgebra, II''
(Amer. J. Math., to appear), we show that the group factors of ICC
lattices in SO(n,1) and SU(n,1), $n\\ge2$, are strongly solid. If
time permits, we will also discuss applications to $L^2$-rigidity.

非線形拡散問題の反応拡散系近似 (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
氷の融解・水の凝固の過程を記述するステファン問題、地下水の流れを表す多孔質媒体流方程式、2種生物種の競合問題における互いの動的な干渉作用を記述する重定-川崎-寺本交差拡散系など、様々な問題を含む非線形拡散問題を取り扱う。本講演では、非線形拡散問題の解が、拡散が線形である半線形反応拡散系の解により近似されることを示す。この結果は、非線形拡散問題の解構造が、ある種の半線形反応拡散系の中に再現されることを示唆するものである。一般に、非線形問題を扱うよりも半線形問題を取り扱う方が容易であるため、本研究は非線形問題の解析や数値解析に応用できることが期待される。

非線形交差拡散系の数値解法―反応拡散系近似理論の応用― (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
多成分反応拡散系において、他の成分同士、拡散が相互に依存しあっているときに、拡散が交差していると言い、そのような系は交差拡散系と呼ばれる。2種生物種の競合問題におけるお互いの動的な干渉作用を記述する重定-川崎-寺本モデルは非線形交差拡散を含む問題の代表例である。非線形交差拡散系に対する効果的な数値解法は個別の問題に対して構成され、解析されるのが現状である。現象のモデリングを行う場合など、パラメータの変更のみでなく、非線形項そのものを変えて多くの数値実験を行いたい場合がある。この様な状況に対応するために、汎用的で簡便な数値解法が望まれる。講演では、非線形交差拡散系を近似するある半線形反応拡散系を媒介することにより、そのような数値解法を導出、解析し、数値計算を通してその有用性を示す。時間が許せば、半線形反応拡散系を用いた退化放物型方程式の数値解法についても触れたい。

Ivana Alexandrova (East Carolina University)
Resonances for Magnetic Scattering by Two Solenoidal Fields at Large Separation (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
We consider the problem of quantum resonances in magnetic scattering by two
solenoidal fields at large separation in two dimensions, and we study how a trajectory
oscillating between the two fields gives rise to resonances near the real axis when
the distance between two centers of fields goes to infinity. We give a sharp lower
bound on resonance widths in terms of backward amplitudes calculated explicitly for
scattering by each solenoidal field. The study is based on a new type of complex
scaling method. As an application, we also discuss the relation to semiclassical
resonances in scattering by two solenoidal fields. This is joint work with Hideo Tamura.

Pseudo-index and minimal length of extremal rays for Fano manifolds (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
The minimum of intersection numbers of the anticanonical
divisor with rational curves on a Fano manifold is called pseudo-index.
In view of the fact that the geometry of Fano manifolds is governed by
its extremal rays, it is important to consider the extremal rational
curves. In this talk, we show that for Fano 4-folds having birational
contractions, the minimal length of extremal rays coincides with the
pseudo-index.

Vanishing theorems revisited, after K.-W. Lan and J. Suh (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Let k be an algebraically closed field of characteristic p and X,
Y proper, smooth k-schemes. J. Suh has proved a vanishing theorem of Kollar
type for certain nef and big line bundles L on Y and morphisms f : X -> Y
having semistable reduction along a divisor with simple normal crossings. It
holds both if p = 0 and if p > 0 modulo some additional liftability mod p^2
and dimension assumptions, and generalizes vanishing theorems of Esnault-
Viehweg and of mine. I'll give an outline of the proof and sketch some
applications, due to K.-W. Lan and J. Suh, to the cohomology of certain
automorphic bundles arising from PEL type Shimura varieties.

Yongnam Lee (Sogang University)
Slope of smooth rational curves in an anticanonically polarized Fano manifold (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Ross and Thomas introduce the concept of slope stability to study K-stability, which has conjectural relation with the existence of constant scalar curvature metric. Since K-stability implies slope stability, slope stability gives an algebraic obstruction to theexistence of constant scalar curvature. This talk presents a systematic study of slope stability of anticanonically polarized Fano manifolds with respect to smooth rational curves. Especially, we prove that an anticanonically polarized Fano maniold is slope semistable with respect to any free smooth rational curves, and that an anticanonically polarized Fano threefold X with Picard number 1 is slope stable with respect to any smooth rational curves unless X is the project space. It is a joint work with Jun-Muk Hwang and Hosung Kim.

The Gauss-Bonnet Theorem and singular points on surfaces (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
We generalize the classical Gauss-Bonnet formula for closed surfaces as wave fronts. Using it, we can find a new view point of inflection points and the topology of immersed surfaces in Euclidean 3-space via the singularities of their Gauss maps.

Christian Klingenberg (Wuerzburg 大学 )
Hydrodynamic limit of microscopic particle systems to conservation laws to fluid models
[ Abstract ]
In this talk we discuss the hydrodynamic limit of a microscopic description of a fluid to its macroscopic PDE description.

In the first part we consider flow through porous media, i.e. the macroscopic description is a scalar conservation law. Here the new feature is that we allow sudden changes in porosity and thereby the flux may have discontinuities in space. Microscopically this is described through an interacting particle system having only one conserved quantity, namely the total mass. Macroscopically this gives rise to a scalar conservation laws with space dependent flux functions

u_t + f(u, x)_x = 0 .

We are able to derive the PDE together with an entropy condition as a hydrodynamic limit from a microscopic interacting particle system.

In the second part we consider a Hamiltonian system with boundary conditions. Microscopically this is described through a system of coupled oscillators. Macroscopically this will lead to a system of conservation laws, namely the p-system. The proof of the hydrodynamic limit is restricted to smooth solutions. The new feature is that we can derive this with boundary conditions.

Richard Hain (Duke University)
Universal mixed elliptic motives (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
This is joint work with Makoto Matsumoto. A mixed elliptic
motive is a mixed motive (MHS, Galois representation, etc) whose
weight graded quotients are Tate twists of symmetric powers of the the
motive of elliptic curve. A universal mixed elliptic motive is an
object that can be specialized to a mixed elliptic motive for any
elliptic curve and whose specialization to the nodal cubic is a mixed
Tate motive. Universal mixed elliptic motives form a tannakian
category. In this talk I will define universal mixed elliptic motives,
give some fundamental examples, and explain what we know about the
fundamental group of this category. The "geometric part" of this group
is an extension of SL_2 by a prounipotent group that is generated by
Eisenstein series and which has a family of relations for each cusp
form. Although these relations are not known, we have a very good idea
of what they are, thanks to work of Aaron Pollack, who determined
relations between the generators in a very large representation of
this group.

Constructibilité uniforme des images directes supérieures en
cohomologie étale
(ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Motivé par une remarque de N. Katz sur le lien entre la
torsion de la Z_ℓ-cohomologie étale et les ultraproduits de groupes de
F_ℓ-cohomologie, nous démontrons un théorème d'uniformité en ℓ pour la
constructibilité des images directes supérieures entre schémas de type fini
sur un trait excellent. (Un tel théorème avait été considéré par
O. Gabber il y a plusieurs années déjà.)
La méthode est maintenant classique : on utilise des
théorèmes de A. J. de Jong et un peu de log-géométrie.

Automorphism groups of causal Makarevich spaces (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
Let G^ be a simple Lie group of Hermitian type and U^ be a maximal parabolic subgroup of G^ with abelian nilradical. The flag manifold M^= G^/ U^ is the Shilov
boundary of an irreducible bounded symmetric domain of tube type. M^ has the G-invariant causal structure. A causal Makarevich space is, by definition, an open symmetric G-orbit M in M^, endowed with the causal structure induced from that
of the ambient space M^, G being a reductive subgroup of G^. All symmetric cones fall in the class of causal Makarevich spaces.
In this talk, we determine the causal automorphism groups of all causal Makarevich spaces.
