We discuss the class of discrete groups which admit fixed points under the adjoint action on the Stone-Cech boundary. Such groups have vanishing $L^2$-Betti numbers, and nonamenable ones fail to have property (AO).

**Birgit Speh**(Cornel University)Introduction to the cohomology of locally symmetric spaces 2

(ENGLISH)

[ Abstract ]

I will give an introduction to the cohomology of noncompact locally symmetric spaces $X_\\Gamma =K \\backslash G / \\Gamma $.

If $X_\\Gamma $ is cocompact this cohomology can be expressed as the $(\\bg,K) $-cohomology of automorphic representations. I will explain how representation theory and automorphic forms can be used to study the cohomology in this case.

On some algebraic properties of CM-types of CM-fields and their

reflex fields (JAPANESE)

**Ryoko Tomiyasu**(KEK)On some algebraic properties of CM-types of CM-fields and their

reflex fields (JAPANESE)

[ Abstract ]

Shimura and Taniyama proved in their theory of complex

multiplication that the moduli of abelian varieties of a CM-type and their

torsion points generate an abelian extension, not of the field of complex

multiplication, but of a reflex field of the field. In this talk, I

introduce some algebraic properties of CM-types, half norm maps that might

shed new light on reflex fields.

For a CM-field $K$ and its Galois closure $K^c$ over the rational field $Q$,

there is a canonical embedding of $Gal (K^c/Q)$ into $(Z/2Z)^n \\rtimes S_n$.

Using properties of the embedding, a set of CM-types $\\Phi$ of $K$ and their

dual CM-types $(K, \\Phi)$ is equipped with a combinatorial structure. This

makes it much easier to handle a whole set of CM-types than an individual

CM-type.

I present a theorem that shows the combinatorial structure of the dual

CM-types is isomorphic to that of a Pfister form.

On Fatou-Julia decompositions (JAPANESE)

**Taro Asuke**(The University of Tokyo)On Fatou-Julia decompositions (JAPANESE)

[ Abstract ]

We will explain that Fatou-Julia decompositions can be

introduced in a unified manner to several kinds of one-dimensional

complex dynamical systems, which include the action of Kleinian groups,

iteration of holomorphic mappings and complex codimension-one foliations.

In this talk we will restrict ourselves mostly to the cases where the

dynamical systems have a certain compactness, however, we will mention

how to deal with dynamical systems without compactness.

On Pfaffian Calabi-Yau Varieties and Mirror Symmetry (JAPANESE)

**Atsushi Kanazawa**(The University of Tokyo)On Pfaffian Calabi-Yau Varieties and Mirror Symmetry (JAPANESE)

[ Abstract ]

We construct new smooth CY 3-folds with 1-dimensional Kaehler moduli and

determine their fundamental topological invariants. The existence of CY

3-folds with the computed invariants was previously conjectured. We then

report mirror symmetry for these non-complete intersection CY 3-folds.

We explicitly build their mirror partners, some of which have 2 LCSLs,

and carry out instanton computations for g=0,1.

A SELECTION CRITERION FOR SOLUTIONS OF A

SYSTEM OF EIKONAL EQUATIONS

(ENGLISH)

[ Abstract ]

We deal with the system of eikonal equations |ðu/ðx1|=1, |ðu/ðx2|=1 in a planar Lipschitz domain with zero boundary condition. Exploiting the classical pyramidal construction introduced by Cellina, it is easy to prove that there exist infinitely many Lipschitz solutions. Then, the natural problem that has arisen in this framework is to find a way to select and characterize a particular meaningful class of solutions.

We propose a variational method to select the class of solutions which minimize the discontinuity set of the gradient. More precisely we select an optimal weighted measure for the jump set of the second derivatives of a given solution v of the system and we prove the existence of minimizers of the corresponding variational problem.

[ Abstract ]

We study the Fourier--Mukai numbers of rational elliptic surfaces. As

its application, we give an example of a pair of minimal 3-folds $X$

with Kodaira dimensions 1, $h^1(O_X)=h^2(O_X)=0$ such that they are

mutually derived equivalent, deformation equivalent, but not

birationally equivalent. It also supplies a counterexample of the

birational Torelli problem.

On roots of Dehn twists (JAPANESE)

**Naoyuki Monden**(Osaka University)On roots of Dehn twists (JAPANESE)

[ Abstract ]

Let $t_{c}$ be the Dehn twist about a nonseparating simple closed curve

$c$ in a closed orientable surface. If a mapping class $f$ satisfies

$t_{c}=f^{n}$ in mapping class group, we call $f$ a root of $t_{c}$ of

degree $n$. In 2009, Margalit and Schleimer constructed roots of $t_{c}$.

In this talk, I will explain the data set which determine a root of

$t_{c}$ up to conjugacy. Moreover, I will explain the minimal and the

maximal degree.

On the eigenvalues of the Laplacian on locally symmetric hyperbolic spaces (ENGLISH)

**B. Speh**(Cornel University)On the eigenvalues of the Laplacian on locally symmetric hyperbolic spaces (ENGLISH)

[ Abstract ]

A famous Theorem of Selberg says that the non-zero eigenvalues of the Laplacian acting on functions on quotients of the upper half plane H by congruence subgroups of the integral modular group, are bounded away from zero, as the congruence subgroup varies. Analogous questions on Laplacians acting on differential forms of higher degree on locally symmetric spaces (functions may be thought of as differential forms of degree zero) have geometric implications for the cohomology of the locally symmetric space.

Let $X$ be the real hyperbolic n-space and $\\Gamma \\subset $ SO(n, 1) a congruence arithmetic subgroup. Bergeron conjectured that the eigenvalues of the Laplacian acting on the differential forms on $ X / \\Gamma $ are bounded from the below by a constant independent of the congruence subgroup. In the lecture I will show how one can use representation theory to show that this conjecture is true provided that it is true in the middle degree.

This is joint work with T.N. Venkataramana

On the GIT stability of Polarized Varieties (JAPANESE)

**Yuji Odaka**(Research Institute for Mathematical Sciences)On the GIT stability of Polarized Varieties (JAPANESE)

[ Abstract ]

Background:

Original GIT-stability notion for polarized variety is

"asymptotic stability", studied by Mumford, Gieseker etc around 1970s.

Recently a version appeared, so-called "K-stability", introduced by

Tian(1997) and reformulated by Donaldson(2002), by the way of seeking

the analogue of Kobayashi-Hitchin correspondence, which gives

"differential geometric" interpretation of "stability". These two have

subtle but interesting differences in dimension higher than 1.

Contents:

(1*) Any semistable (in any sense) polarized variety should have only

"semi-log-canonical" singularities. (Partly observed around 1970s)

(2) On the other hand, we proved some stabilities, which corresponds to

"Calabi conjecture", also with admitting mild singularities.

As applications these yield

(3*) Compact moduli spaces with GIT interpretations.

(4) Many counterexamples (as orbifolds) to folklore conjecture:

"K-stability implies asymptotic stability".

(*: Some technical points are yet to be settled.

Some parts for (1)(2) are available on arXiv:0910.1794.)

Independence of families of $\\ell$-adic representations and uniform constructibility (ENGLISH)

**Luc Illusie**(東京大学/Paris南大学)Independence of families of $\\ell$-adic representations and uniform constructibility (ENGLISH)

[ Abstract ]

Let $k$ be a number field, $\\overline{k}$ an algebraic closure of $k$, $\\Gamma_k = \\mathrm{Gal}(\\overline{k}/k)$. A family of continuous homomorphisms $\\rho_{\\ell} : \\Gamma_k \\rightarrow G_{\\ell}$, indexed by prime numbers $\\ell$, where $G_{\\ell}$ is a locally compact $\\ell$-adic Lie group, is said to be independent if $\\rho(\\Gamma_k) = \\prod \\rho_{\\ell}(\\Gamma_k)$, where $\\rho = (\\rho_{\\ell}) : \\Gamma_k \\rightarrow \\prod G_{\\ell}$. Serre gave a criterion for such a family to become independent after a finite extension of $k$. We will explain Serre's criterion and show that it applies to families coming from the $\\ell$-adic cohomology (or cohomology with compact support) of schemes separated and of finite type over $k$. This application uses a variant of Deligne's generic constructibility theorem with uniformity in $\\ell$.
