On exceptional surgeries on Montesinos knots
(joint works with In Dae Jong and Shigeru Mizushima) (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
I will report recent progresses of the study on exceptional
surgeries on Montesinos knots.
In particular, we will focus on how homological invariants (e.g.
khovanov homology,
knot Floer homology) on knots can be used in the study of Dehn surgery.

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.

Applied Analysis

16:00-17:30   Room #002 (Graduate School of Math. Sci. Bldg.)
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.

Number Theory Seminar

Fabrice Orgogozo (CNRS, École polytechnique)
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.

Weak convergence of Markov chain Monte Carlo method and its application to Yuima (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
We examine some asymptotic properties of Markov chain Monte Carlo methods by the weak convergence framework of MCMC. Our purpose is to compare this framework to the Harris recurrence framework. Numerical illustrations will be given via R. The connection to the YUIMA package will also be discussed.

This talk will be held at IT Studio.

Lie Groups and Representation Theory

17:00-18:30   Room #126 (Graduate School of Math. Sci. Bldg.)
Soji Kaneyuki (Sophia University)
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.

Fixed Points in the Stone-Cech boundary of Groups (ENGLISH)

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).

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.

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.

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.

(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 $(g,K)$-cohomology of automorphic representations. I will explain how representation theory and automorphic forms can be used to study the cohomology in this case.

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.
