Title: | On the group of holomorphic and anti-holomorphic transformations of a compact Hermitian symmetric space and the G-structure) |
Abstract: [ pdf ] |
Let M be a compact irreducible Hermitian symmetric space. We determine the full group of holomorphic and anti-holomorphic transformations of M. Also we characterize that full group as the automorphism group of the G-structure on M, called a generalized conformal structure. |

Title: | Representation theory of finite W-algebras |
Abstract: [ pdf ] |
There has been a great deal of recent research interest in finite W-algebras motivated by important connection with primitive ideals of universal enveloping algebras and applications in mathematical physics. There have been significant breakthroughs in the representation theory of finite W-algebras due to the research of a variety of mathematicians. In this talk, we will give an overview of the representation theory of finite W-algebras focusing on W-algebras associated to classical Lie algebras (joint with J. Brown) and W-algebras associated to general linear Lie superalgebras (joint with J. Brown and J. Brundan). |

Title: | Dunkl processes assciated with dihedral systems, I |
Abstract: [ pdf ] |
I'll first give a brief and needed account on root systems and finite reflection groups. Then, I'll introduce Dunkl operators and give some properties. Once I'll do, I'll introduce Dunkl processes and their continuous components, so-called radial Dunkl processes. The latter generalize eigenvalues processes of some matrix-valued processes and reduces to reflected Brownian motion in Weyl chambers. Besides, Brownian motion in Weyl chambers corresponds to all multiplicity values equal one are constructed from a Brownian motion killed when it first hits the boundary of the Weyl chamber using the unique positive harmonic function (up to a constant) on the Weyl chamber. In the analytic side, determinantal formulas appear and are related to harmonic analysis on the Gelfand pair (Gl(n,C), U(n)). This is in agreement on the one side with the so-called reflection principle in stochastic processes theory and matches on the other side the so-called shift principle introduced by E. Opdam. Finally, I'll discuss the spectacular result of Biane-Bougerol-O'connell yielding to a Duistermaat-Heckman distribution for non crystallographic systems. |

Title: | Dunkl processes assciated with dihedral systems, II |
Abstract: [ pdf ] |
I'll focus on dihedral systems and its semi group density. I'll show how one can write down this density using probabilistic techniques and give some interpretation using spherical harmonics. I'll also present some results attempting to get a close formula for the density: the main difficulty comes then from the inversion (in composition sense) of Tchebycheff polynomials of the first kind in some neighborhood. Finally, I'll display expressions through known special functions for even dihedral groups, and the unexplained connection between the obtained formulas and those of Ben Said-Kobayashi-Orsted. |

Title: | Discrete branching laws of Zuckerman's derived functor modules (Zuckerman 導来関手加群の離散的分岐則) |
Abstract: [ pdf ] |
We consider the restriction of Zuckerman's derived functor modules with respect to symmetric pairs of real reductive groups. When they are discretely decomposable, explicit formulas for the branching laws are obtained by using a realization as D-module on the flag variety and the generalized BGG resolution. In this talk we would like to illustrate how to derive the formulas with a few examples. |

Title: | A characterization of non-tube type Hermitian symmetric spaces by visible actions (Japanese) |
Abstract: [ pdf ] |
We consider a non-symmetric complex Stein manifold D
which is realized as a line bundle over the complexification of a
non-compact irreducible Hermitian symmetric space G/K. In this talk, we will explain that the compact group action on D is strongly visible in the sense of Toshiyuki Kobayashi if and only if G/K is of non-tube type. In particular, we focus on our construction of slice which meets every orbit in D from the viewpoint of group theory, namely, we find an A-part of a generalized Cartan decomposition for homogeneous space D. We note that our choice of A-part is an abelian. |

Title: | Representations of reductive groups and L-functions. (II) |
Abstract: [ pdf ] |
This an introduction to the theory of L-functions and in particular of
the local L-factors of representations in real and complex groups. Some
familiarity with infinite dimensional representations would be very
helpful, but I will not assume any knowledge of number theory.
We will start in the first lecture by considering L-functions for
Groessen characters and classical automorphic forms, in other words for
automorphic representations of G(1) and GL(2). This will motivate the
definition of the local L-factors of representations of GL(1,R) and
GL(2,R). We will discuss Rankin convolutions and define the
L-factors for infinite dimensional tempered representations of GL(n,R). In the second lecture we will quickly discuss Rankin Selberg integral approach to L-factors and then Shahidi's method of constructing L-functions by relating them to intertwining operators, leading to the definition of the the L-factors of tempered non degenerate representations. The lecture closes with a discussion of L-factors for nontempered representations. We note that our choice of A-part is an abelian. |

Title: | Representation Theory and Microlocal Analysis |
Abstract: [ pdf ] |
Suppose $H\subset K$ are compact, connected Lie groups, and
suppose $\tau$ is an irreducible, unitary representation of $H$. In
1979, Kashiwara and Vergne proved a simple asymptotic formula for the
decomposition of $Ind_H^K\tau$ by microlocally studying the regularity
of vectors in this representation, thought of as vector valued functions
on $K$. In 1998, Kobayashi proved a powerful criterion for the discrete
decomposability of an irreducible, unitary representation $\pi$ of a
reductive Lie group $G$ when restricted to a reductive subgroup $H$. One
of his key ideas was to restrict $\pi$ to a representation of a maximal
compact subgroup $K\subset G$, view $\pi$ as a subrepresentation of
$L^2(K)$, and then use ideas similar to those developed by Kashiwara and
Vergne. In a recent preprint the speaker wrote with Hongyu He and Gestur Olafsson, the authors consider the possibility of studying induction and restriction to a reductive Lie group $G$ by microlocally studying the regularity of the matrix coefficients of (possibly reducible) unitary representations of $G$, viewed as continuous functions on the (possibly noncompact) Lie group $G$. In this talk, we will outline the main results of this paper and give additional conjectures. |

For a connected compact simple Lie group of type B or D, we find pairs $(V_{1},V_{2})$ of irreducible representations of G such that the tensor product representation $V_{1}\otimes V_{2}$ is multiplicity-free by a geometric consideration based on a notion of visible actions on complex manifolds, introduced by T. Kobayashi. The pairs we find exhaust all the multiplicity-free pairs by an earlier combinatorial classification due to Stembridge. |

Title: | Calculating the global character of the metaplectic representation |
Abstract: [ pdf ] |
In this talk I will give a brief introduction to Metaplectic representation, also known as Segal-Shale-Weil representation, a unitary representation of the double cover of the symplectic group. This representation is intimately connected to the von-Neumann formulation of quantum mechanics, one way of realizing the representation is as intertwiners of the Schrödinger representation by the uniqueness in the Stone-von-Neumann theorem. The metaplectic representation is a very well studied representation and, among other things, serves as a key example in the study of minimal representations. The focus of this talk will be on calculating the global (or distributional or Harish-Chandra) character of the representation. |

Title: | Global Geometry and Analysis on Locally Pseudo-Riemannian Homogeneous Spaces |
Abstract: |
The local to global study of geometries was a major trend
of 20th century geometry, with remarkable developments
achieved particularly in Riemannian geometry. In contrast,
in areas such as Lorentz geometry, familiar to us as the
space-time of relativity theory, and more generally in pseudo-
Riemannian geometry of general signature, surprising little is
known about global properties of the geometry even if we impose
a locally homogeneous structure. Taking anti-de Sitter manifolds, which are locally modelled on AdS^n as an example, I plan to explain two programs: 1. (global shape) Existence problem of compact locally homogeneous spaces, and deformation theory. 2. (spectral analysis) Construction of the spectrum of the Laplacian, and its stability under the deformation of the geometric structure. |

Title: | Weightless cohomology of algebraic varieties |
Abstract: |
Using Morel's weight truncations in categories of mixed sheaves, we
attach to any variety defined over complex numbers, over finite fields
or even over a number field, a series of groups called the weightless
cohomology groups. These lie between the usual cohomology and the
intersection cohomology, have a natural ring structure, satisfy
Kunneth, and are functorial for certain morphisms. The construction is motivic and naturally arises in the context of Shimura Varieties where they capture the cohomology of Reductive Borel Serre compactification. The construction also yields invariants of singularities associated with the combinatorics of the boundary divisors in any resolution. |

Title: | Visible actions on generalized flag varieties — Geometry of multiplicity-free representations of $SO(N)$ |
Abstract: |
The subject of study is tensor product representations of irreducible
representations of the orthogonal group, which are multiplicity-free.
Here we say a group representation is multiplicity-free if any
irreducible representation occurs at most once in its irreducible
decomposition. The motivation is the theory of visible actions on complex manifolds, which was introduced by T. Kobayashi. In this theory, the main tool for proving the multiplicity-freeness property of group representations is the "propagation theorem of the multiplicity-freeness property". By using this theorem and Stembridge's classification result, we obtain the following: All the multiplicity-free tensor product representations of $SO(N)$ and $Spin(N)$ can be obtained from character, alternating tensor product and spin representations combined with visible actions on orthogonal generalized flag varieties. |

Title: | Holomorphic discrete series and Borel-de Siebenthal discrete series |
Abstract: |
Let $G_0$ be a simply connected non-compact real simple Lie group with
maximal compact subgroup $K_0$.
Let $T_0\subset K_0$ be a Cartan subgroup of $K_0$ as well as of $G_0$.
So $G_0$ has discrete series
representations.
Denote by $\frak{g}, \frak{k},$ and $\frak{t}$, the
complexifications of the Lie algebras $\frak{g}_0, \frak{k}_0$ and $\
frak{t}_0$ of $G_0, K_0$ and $T_0$
respectively.
There exists a positive root system $\Delta^+$ of $\frak{g}$ with
respect to $\frak{t}$, known as the Borel-de Siebenthal positive system
for which
there is exactly one non-compact simple root, denoted $\nu$. Let $\mu$
denote the highest root.
If $G_0/K_0$ is Hermitian symmetric, then $\nu$ has coefficient $1$ in $
\mu$ and
one can define holomorphic discrete series representation of $G_0$ using
$\Delta^+$.
If $G_0/K_0$ is not Hermitian symmetric, the coefficient of $\nu$ in the
highest root $\mu$ is $2$.
In this case, Borel-de Siebenthal discrete series of $G_0$ is defined
using $\Delta^+$ in a manner analogous to the holomorphic discrete
series. Let $\nu^*$ be the fundamental weight corresponding to $\nu$ and $L_0$ be the centralizer in $K_0$ of the circle subgroup defined by $i\nu^*$. Note that $L_0 = K_0$, when $G_0/K_0$ is Hermitian symmetric. Otherwise, $L_0$ is a proper subgroup of $K_0$ and $K_0/L_0$ is an irreducible compact Hermitian symmetric space. Let $G$ be the simply connected Lie group with Lie algebra $\frak{g}$ and $K_0^* \subset G$ be the dual of $K_0$ with respect to $L_0$ (or, the image of $L_0$ in $G$). Then $K_0^*/L_0$ is an irreducible non-compact Hermitian symmetric space dual to $K_0/L_0$. In this talk, to each Borel-de Siebenthal discrete series of $G_0$, a holomorphic discrete series of $K_0^*$ will be associated and occurrence of common $L_0$-types in both the series will be discussed. |

Title: | Alternating sign matrices, primed shifted tableaux and Tokuyama factorisation theorems |
Abstract: [ pdf ] |
Twenty years ago Okada established a remarkable set of identities relating weighted sums over half-turn alternating sign matrices (ASMs) to products taking the form of deformations of Weyl denominator formulae for Lie algebras B_n, C_n and D_n. Shortly afterwards Simpson added another such identity to the list. It will be shown that various classes of ASMs are in bijective correspondence with certain sets of shifted tableaux, and that statistics on these ASMs may be expressed in terms of the entries in corresponding compass point matrices (CPMs). This then enables the Okada and Simpson identities to be expressed in terms of weighted sums over primed shifted tableaux. This offers the possibility of extending each of these identities, that originally involved a single parameter and a single shifted tableau shape, to more general identities involving both sequences of parameters and shapes specified by arbitrary partitions. It is conjectured that in each case an appropriate multi-parameter weighted sum can be expressed as a product of a deformed Weyl denominator and group character of the type first proved in the A_n case by Tokuyma in 1988. The conjectured forms of the generalised Okada and Simpson identities will be given explicitly, along with an account of recent progress made in collaboration with Angèle Hamel in proving some of them. |

Abstract: [ pdf ] |
About 50 years ago Gelfand suggested a conception of horospherical transform which, he hoped, must be an universal principle unifying non commutative harmonic analysis.

I want to discuss the evolution of this fundamental conception for 50 years and how Gelfand's dreams are looked today. I will discuss an elementary case of hyperboloids of any signature where there were not too much progress after old initial result of Gelfand-Graev. |

Title: | A characterization of the $L^{2}$-range of the Poisson transform on symmetric spaces of noncompact type (非コンパクト型対称空間におけるポアソン変換の$L^{2}$-値域の特 徴付け) |
Abstract: [ pdf ] |
Characterizations of the joint eigenspaces of invariant differential operators in terms of the Poisson transform have been one of the central problems in harmonic analysis on symmetric spaces. From the point of view of spectral theory, Strichartz (J. Funct. Anal.(1989)) formulated a conjecture concerning a certain image characterization of the Poisson transform of the $L^{2}$-space on the boundary on symmetric spaces of noncompact type. In this talk, we employ techniques in scattering theory to present a positive answer to the Strichartz conjecture. |

Title: | Whittaker vectors for Harish-Chandra modules |
Abstract: |
Let $G$ be a real reductive linear Lie group and let $G=KAN$
be
its Iwasawa decomposition.
We denote by ${\mathfrak g}$ the complexified Lie algebra
corresponding to $G$.
We consider a non-degenerate unitary character $\psi : N\rightarrow
{\mathbb C}^\times$.
Let $V$ be a Harish-Chandra $({\mathfrak g},K)$-module.
Roughly speaking , a Whittaker model of $V$ is a realization of $V$ as
a
submodule of an induced representation $Ind_N^G(\psi)$. A Whittaker
vector
is an element in a "dual" of $V$ corresponding to a Whittaler model.
In this talk, we discuss the following subjects. (1) We give a precise definition of Whittaker vectors, namely algebraic, real analytic, and $C^\infty$-Whittaker vectors. (2) We explain how to reduce the computation of the dimension of the spaces of Whittaker vectors for general Harish-Chandra modules to the special case of principal series representations. (3) We discuss the Whittaker vectors for principal series representations and explain why the dimension of the space of real analytic Whittaker vectors are greator than the dimension of the space of $C^\infty$- Whittaker vectors. |
