Index problem for generically-wild homoclinic classes in dimension three
[ Abstract ]
In the sphere of non-hyperbolic differentiable dynamical systems, one can construct an example of a homolinic class which does not admit any kind of dominated splittings (a weak form of hyperbolicity) in a robust way. In this talk, we discuss the index (dimension of the unstable manifold) of the periodic points inside such homoclinic classes from a $C^1$-generic viewpoint.

On a generalized suspension theorem for directed Fukaya categories
[ Abstract ]
The directed Fukaya category $\\mathrm{Fuk} W$ of exact Lefschetz
fibration $W : X \\to \\mathbb{C}$ proposed by Kontsevich is a
categorification of the Milnor lattice of $W$. This is defined as the
directed $A_\\infty$-category $\\mathrm{Fuk} W = \\mathrm{Fuk}^\\to \\mathbb{V}$ generated by a distinguished basis $\\mathbb{V}$ of
vanishing cycles.

Recently Seidel has proved that this is stable under the suspension $W + u^2$ as a consequence of his foundational work on the directed
Fukaya category. We generalize his suspension theorem to the $W + u^d$
case by considering partial tensor product $\\mathrm{Fuk} W \\otimes' \\mathcal{A}_{d-1}$, where $\\mathcal{A}_{d-1}$ is the category
corresponding to the $A_n$-type quiver. This also generalizes a recent
work by the author with Kazushi Ueda.

Large deviations, Billiards, and Non-equilibrium Statistical Mechanics
[ Abstract ]
Large deviations have applications in many aspects of statistical mechanics. New applications for the steady states of non-equilibrium statistical mechanics have emerged during the past ten years and these applications deal with the fluctuations of the entropy production. After discussing some general aspects of entropy production we turn to concrete examples, in particular billiards with and without external forces and discuss large deviations theorems for such systems.

A Liouville theorem for a semilinear heat equation with no gradient structure
[ Abstract ]
We prove a Liouville Theorem for entire solutions of a vector
valued semilinear heat equation with no gradient structure. Classical tools such as the maximum principle or energy techniques break down and have to be replaced by a new approach. These tools involve a very good understanding of the dynamical system formulation of the equation in the selfsimilar setting. Using the Liouville Theorem, we derive uniform estimates for blow-up solutions of the same equation.

ecent results on volatility change point analysis for discretely sampled stochastic differential equations
[ Abstract ]
In this seminar we review recent advances on change point analysis for the volatility component of stochastic differential equations under different discrete sampling schemes. We consider both ergodic and high frequency and non ergodic cases. Results have been obtained by means of least squares, CUSUM tests and quasi-maximum likelihood approach. We show an application to the recent financial crisis and finally present a Monte Carlo study to compare the three methods under different setups.

Lie Groups and Representation Theory

17:00-18:00   Room #056 (Graduate School of Math. Sci. Bldg.)

Open Problems in Discrete Geometric Analysis
[ Abstract ]
Discrete geometric analysis is a hybrid field of several traditional disciplines: graph theory, geometry, theory of discrete groups, and probability. This field concerns solely analysis on graphs, a synonym of "1-dimensional cell complex". In this talk, I shall discuss several open problems related to the discrete Laplacian, a "protagonist" in discrete geometric analysis. Topics dealt with are 1. Ramanujan graphs, 2. Spectra of covering graphs, 3. Zeta functions of finitely generated groups.

On the stability of contingent claimes in incomplet models under statistical estimations.
[ Abstract ]
In exponential semi-martingale setting for risky asset we estimate the difference of prices of options when initial physical measure P and corresponding martingale measure Q change to tilde{P} and tilde{Q} respectively. Then, we estimate L1 distance of option’s prices for corresponding parametric models with known and estimated parameters. The results are applied to exponential Levy models with special choise of martingale measure as Esscher measure, minimal entropy measure and f^q -minimal martingale measure. We illustrate our results by considering GMY and CGMY models.

Invariants of Fano varieties via quantum D-module
[ Abstract ]
We will introduce and compute Apery characteristic
class and Frobenius genera - invariants of Fano variety derived from
it's Gromov-Witten invariants. Then we will show how to compute them
and relate with other invariants.
