On regularized double shuffle relation for multiple zeta values (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Multiple zeta values(MZVs) are natural generalizations of Riemann zeta values. There are many rational relations among MZVs. It is conjectured that the regularized double shuffle relations contian all rational relations of MZVs. So other rational relations should be deduced from regularized dhouble shuffle relations. In this talk, we discuss some results on this problem. We define the gamma series accociated to elements satisfying regularized double shuffle relations and give some properties. Moreover we show that the Ohno-Zagier relations can be deduced from regularized double shuffle relations.

Spines with View Toward Modular Forms (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
The study of an arithmetic group is often aided by the fact that it acts naturally on a nice topological object. One can then use topological or geometric techniques to try to recover arithmetic data. For example, one often studies SL_2(Z) in terms of
its action on the upper half plane. In this talk, we will examine spines, which are the ``smallest" such spaces for a given arithmetic group. On overview of some known theoretical results and explicit computations will be given.
