Fanny Kassel (Orsay)
Deformation of compact quotients of homogeneous spaces
[ Abstract ]
Let G/H be a reductive homogeneous space. In all known examples, if
G/H admits compact Clifford-Klein forms, then it admits "standard"
ones, by uniform lattices of some reductive subgroup L of G acting
properly on G/H. In order to obtain more generic Clifford-Klein forms,
we prove that for L of real rank 1, if one slightly deforms in G a
uniform lattice of L, then its action on G/H remains properly
discontinuous. As an application, we obtain compact quotients of SO(2,2n)/U(1,n) by Zariski-dense discrete subgroups of SO(2,2n) acting properly discontinuously.

Extensions of two Chow stability criteria to positive characteristics
[ Abstract ]
I will talk about two results on Chow (semi-)stability of cycles in positive characteristics, which were originally known in characteristic 0. One is on the stability of non-singular projective hypersurfaces of degree greater than 2, and the other is the criterion by Y. Lee in terms of the log canonical threshold of Chow divisor. A couple of examples will be discussed in detail.

Timur Sadykov (Siberian Federal University)
Bases in the solution space of the Mellin system
[ Abstract ]
I will present a joint work with Alicia Dickenstein.
We consider algebraic functions $z$ satisfying equations of the
form
\\begin{equation}
a_0 z^m + a_1z^{m_1} + a_2 z^{m_2} + \\ldots + a_n z^{m_n} +
a_{n+1} =0.
\\end{equation}
Here $m > m_1 > \\ldots > m_n>0,$ $m,m_i \\in \\N,$ and
$z=z(a_0,\\ldots,a_{n+1})$ is a function of the complex variables
$a_0, \\ldots, a_{n+1}.$ Solutions to such equations are
classically known to satisfy holonomic systems of linear partial
differential equations with polynomial coefficients. In the talk
I will investigate one of such systems of differential equations which
was introduced by Mellin. We compute the holonomic rank of the
Mellin system as well as the dimension of the space of its
algebraic solutions. Moreover, we construct explicit bases of
solutions in terms of the roots of initial algebraic equation and their
logarithms. We show that the monodromy of the Mellin system is
always reducible and give some factorization results in the
univariate case.

Extension of Functions and Interpolation of Data
[ Abstract ]
Let $f$ be a given real-valued function defined on a subset of $\\mathbb{R}^n$. We explain how to decide whether $f$ extends to a function $F$ in $C^m(\\mathbb{R}^n)$. If such an $F$ exists, we show how to construct one.

相転移を伴う非圧縮性2相流の線形化問題について
[ Abstract ]
氷が常圧で0度以上になると水になるなどの相転移を伴う非圧縮性2相流に対し,質量保存則, 運動量保存則, エネルギー保存則を界面を含む系全体に適用し, 線形化した方程式系について考察する. 本講演では, 線形化方程式系のL_p-L_q 最大正則性定理について述べる.

密度が異なる場合は, 法線方向の高さ関数は表面張力つき2相Stokes問題の高さ関数と同じ正則性をもち, 系は流速が支配するのに対し,密度が等しい場合は, Gibbs-Thomson補正された表面張力つき2相Stefan問題の高さ関数と同じ正則性をもち, 系は温度が支配する.

GCOE lecture series

16:30-17:30   Room #999 (Graduate School of Math. Sci. Bldg.)
Charles Fefferman (Princeton University)
Extension of Functions and Interpolation of Data
[ Abstract ]
This series of three lectures will discuss the following questions. No special background will be assumed, and the third lecture will not assume familiarity with the first two.

Fix positive integers $m, n$. Let $f$ be a real-valued function on a subset $E$ of $\\mathbf{R}^n$. How can we tell whether $f$ extends to a $C^m$ function $F$ on the whole $\\mathbf{R}^n$?
If $F$ exists, how small can we take its $C^m$ norm? Can we take $F$ to depend linearly on $f$? What can we say about the derivatives of $F$ at a given point of $E$?

Suppose $E$ is finite. Can we then compute an $F$ with $C^m$ norm close to least-possible? How many operations does it take? What if we ask merely that $F$ and $f$ agree approximately on $E$? What if we are allowed to delete a few points of $E$?

What can be said about the above problems for function spaces other than $C^m(\\mathbf{R}^n)$?
