Bernhard M\"uhlherr (Justus-Liebig-Universit\"at Giessen)
Groups of Kac-Moody type (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Groups of Kac-Moody type are natural generalizations of Kac-Moody groups over fields in the sense that they have an RGD-system. This is a system of subgroups indexed by the roots of a root system and satisfying certain commutation relations.
Roughly speaking, there is a one-to-one correspondence between groups of Kac-Moody type and Moufang twin buildings. This correspondence was used in the last decade to prove several group theoretic results on RGD-systems and in particular on Kac-
Moody groups over fields.

In my talk I will explain RGD-systems and how they provide twin
buildings in a natural way. I will then present some of the group theoretic applications mentioned above and describe how twin buildings are used as a main tool in their proof.

Global uniqueness in determining a coefficient by boundary data on small subboundaries (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
We consider the Dirichlet problem for the stationary two-dimensional Schroedinger equation. We discuss an inverse boundary value problem of determining the potential from a pair of all Dirichlet data supported in a subboundary S+ and all the corresponding Neumann data taken only on a subboundary S-. In the case where S+ = S- are the whole boundary, the data are the classical Dirichlet to Neumann map and there are many uniqueness results, while in the case where S+=S- is an arbitrary subboundary, Imanuvilov-Uhlmann-Yamamoto (2010) proves the uniqueness. In this talk, for the case where S+ and S- are not same, we prove the global uniqueness for this inverse problem under a condition only on the locations of S+, S-. We note that within the condition, S+ and S- can be arbitrarily small. The key of the proof is the construction of suitable complex geometrical optics solutions by a Carleman estimate with singular weight function.

Homological Mirror Symmetry for 2-dimensional toric Fano stacks (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
Homological Mirror Symmetry (HMS for short) is a conjectural
duality between complex and symplectic geometry, originally proposed
for mirror pairs of Calabi-Yau manifolds and later extended to
Fano/Landau-Ginzburg mirrors (both due to Kontsevich, 1994 and 1998).

We explain how HMS is established in the case of 2-dimensional smooth
toric Fano stack X as an equivalence between the derived category of X
and the derived directed Fukaya category of its mirror Lefschetz
fibration W. This is related to Kontsevich-Soibelman's construction of
3d CY category from the quiver with potential.

We also obtain a local mirror extension following Seidel's suspension
theorem, that is, the local HMS for the canonical bundle K_X and the
double suspension W+uv. This talk is joint with Kazushi Ueda (Osaka
U.).

Quandle homology and complex volume
(Joint work with Yuichi Kabaya) (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
For a hyperbolic 3-manifold M, the complex value (Vol(M) + i CS(M)) is called the complex volume of M. Here, Vol(M) denotes the volume of M, and CS(M) the Chern-Simons invariant of M.
In 2004, Neumann defined the extended Bloch group, and showed that there is an element of the extended Bloch group corresponding to a hyperbolic 3-manifold.
He further showed that we can compute the complex volume of the manifold by evaluating the element of the extended Bloch group.
To obtain an element of the extended Bloch group corresponding to a hyperbolic 3-manifold, we have to find an ideal triangulation of the manifold and to solve several equations.
On the other hand, we show that the element of the extended Bloch group corresponding to the exterior of a hyperbolic link is obtained from a quandle shadow coloring.
It means that we can compute the complex volume combinatorially from a link diagram.

$W^*$ Rigidity for actions of wreath product groups (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
The past 8 years have seen much progress in the classification of
actions of groups on measure spaces. Much of this is due to new powerful
techniques in operator algebras. We will survey some of these results
as well as the new operator algebra techniques. We will then give new
results concerning the classification of actions of wreath product groups.

A polynomial invariant of pseudo-Anosov maps (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
Thurston-Nielsen classified surface homomorphism into three classes. Among them, the pseudo-Anosov class is the most interesting since there is strong connection to the hyperbolic manifolds. As an invariant, the dilatation number has been known. In this talk, I will introduce a new invariant of pseudo-Anosov maps. It is an integer coefficient polynomial, which contains the dilatation as the largest real root and is often reducible. I will show properties of the polynomials, examples, and some application to knot theory. (This is a joint work with Joan Birman and Peter Brinkmann.)

Mighty convergence in LAD type estimation (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
We propose a LAD (least absolute deviation) type contrast function for estimating Levy driven Ornstein-Uhlenbeck processes sampled at high frequency. The asymptotic behavior and polynomial-type large deviation inequality concerning the statistical random fields in question are derived, entailing an asymptotic normality and convergence of moments of the LAD estimator. Also, we will mention some numerical experiments done by the R software and some possible extensions of the framework.

High Distance Knots in closed 3-manifolds (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Let M be a closed 3-manifold with a given Heegaard splitting.
We show that after a single stabilization, some core of the
stabilized splitting has arbitrarily high distance with respect
to the splitting surface. This generalizes a result of Minsky,
Moriah, and Schleimer for knots in S^3. We also show that in the
complex of curves, handlebody sets are either coarsely distinct
or identical. We define the coarse mapping class group of a
Heeegaard splitting, and show that if (S,V,W) is a Heegaard
splitting of genus greater than or equal to 2, then the coarse
mapping class group of (S,V,W) is isomorphic to the mapping class
group of (S, V, W). This is joint work with Matt Rathbun.

On a limiting eigenvalue distribution theorem for perturbations of the hydrogen atom (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
Let H be the hydrogen atom Hamiltonian. We will show that
the operator H+P can have well defined clusters of eigenvalues
for a suitable perturbation P=f(h)Q where Q is a pseudo-differential
operator of order zero and f(h) is a small quantity depending of
the Planck's parameter h. We will show that the distribution of
eigenvalues in those clusters has a semi-classical limit involving
the averages of the principal symbol of Q along the classical orbits
of the Kepler problem.

Effect of nonlinearity on the steady motion of a twinning dislocation (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
We consider the steady motion of a twinning dislocation in a Frenkel-Kontorova lattice with a double-well substrate potential that has a non-degenerate spinodal region. Semi-analytical traveling wave solutions are constructed for the piecewise quadratic potential, and their stability and further effects of nonlinearity are investigated numerically. We show that the width of the spinodal region and the nonlinearity of the potential have a significant effect on the dislocation kinetics, resulting in stable steady motion in some low-velocity intervals and lower propagation stress. We also conjecture that a stable steady propagation must correspond to an increasing portion of the kinetic relation between the applied stress and dislocation velocity.

代用電荷法による多重連結領域の数値等角写像 (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
多重連結領域の等角写像では,平行スリット領域,円弧スリット領域,放射スリット領域,円弧スリット円板領域,円弧スリット円環領域という5種の正準スリット領域が広く知られている(Nehari, 1952).遡って,Koebe(1916)はこれらを含む39種の正準スリット領域を挙げている.近年,このような多重連結領域の問題が新たに注目されている.代用電荷法を適用して,このような様々な等角写像の表現が簡潔で精度の高い近似写像関数を簡単に構成することができる.ここでは,非有界な多重連結領域から(実軸となす角を任意に指定した一般的な)直線スリット領域と,円弧放射スリット(混在)領域への場合中心に,代用電荷法による多重連結領域の数値等角写像の方法を紹介する.
