$W^*$ 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.

Keiko Kawamuro (University of Iowa)
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.

Marion Moore (University of California, Davis)
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.

Flips of moduli of stable torsion free sheaves with $c_1=1$ on

[ Abstract ]
We study flips of moduli schemes of stable torsion free sheaves

They are described as stratified Grassmann bundles by variation of
stability of modules over certain finite dimensional algebra.

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.

techniques derived from Jones' work on quadratic tangles.

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.

On the cohomology of free and twisted loop spaces (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
A natural extension of cohomology suspension to a free loop space is
constructed from the evaluation map and is shown to have a good
properties in cohomology calculation. This map is generalized to a
twisted loop space.
As an application, the cohomology of free and twisted loop space of
classifying spaces of compact Lie groups, including certain finite
Chevalley groups is calculated.

Rational curves on hypersurfaces (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
Our purpose is to study the family of smooth rational curves of degree $e$ lying on a hypersurface of degree $d$ in $\\mathbb{P}^n$, and to investigate properties of this family (e.g., dimension, smoothness, connectedness).
Our starting point is the research about the family of lines (i.e., $e = 1$), which was studied by W. Barth and A. Van de Ven over $\\mathbb{C}$, and by J. Koll\\'{a}r over an algebraically closed field of arbitrary characteristic.
For the degree $e > 1$, the family of rational curves was studied by J. Harris, M. Roth, and J. Starr over $\\mathbb{C}$ in the case of $d < (n+1)/2$.
In this talk, we study the family of rational curves in arbitrary characteristic under the assumption $e = 2,3$ and $d > 1$, or $e > 3$ and $d > 2e-4$.

Non-commutative Reidemeister torsion and Morse-Novikov theory (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
For a circle-valued Morse function of a closed oriented manifold, we
show that Reidemeister torsion over a non-commutative formal Laurent
polynomial ring equals the product of a certain non-commutative
Lefschetz-type zeta function and the algebraic torsion of the Novikov
complex over the ring. This gives a generalization of the results of
Hutchings-Lee and Pazhitnov on abelian coefficients. As a consequence we
obtain Morse theoretical and dynamical descriptions of the higher-order
Alexander polynomials.
