Homogical methods in Non-commutative Geometry
[ Abstract ]
Of all the approaches to non-commutative geometry, probably the most promising is the homological one, developed by Keller, Kontsevich, Toen and others, where non-commutative eometry is understood as "geometry of triangulated categories". Examples of "geometric" triangulated categories come from representation theory, symplectic geometry (Fukaya category) and algebraic geometry (the derived category of coherent sheaves on an algebraic variety and
various generalizations). Non-commutative point of view is expected to be helpful even in traditional questions of algebraic geometry such as the termination of flips.

We plan to give an introduction to the subject, with emphasis on homological methods (such as e.g. Hodge theory which, as it turns out, can be mostly formulated in the non-commutative setting).

No knowledge of non-commutative geometry whatsoever is assumed. However, familiarity with basic homological algebra and algebraic geometry will be helpful.

James Lewis (University of Alberta)
Abel-Jacobi Maps Associated to Algebraic Cycles, I.

[ Abstract ]
This talk concerns the Bloch cycle class map from the higher Chow groups to Deligne cohomology of a projective algebraic manifold. We provide an explicit formula for this map in terms of polylogarithmic type currents.

Dmitry Kaledin (Steklov Institute)
p-adic Hodge theory in the non-commutative setting
[ Abstract ]
We will explain what is the natural replacement of the notion of Hodge structure in the p-adic setting, and how to construct such a structure for non-commutative manifolds (something which at present cannot be done for the usual Hodge structures, but works perfectly well for the p-adic analog).

Grigory Mikhalkin (Toronto大学)
Floor diagrams and enumeration of tropical curves
[ Abstract ]
The enumerative problems considered in this talk are finding the number of curves in projective spaces (over complex, real and tropical numbers) of given genus and degree constrained by certain incidence conditions (e.g. passing via points or lines). Floor diagrams are a combinatorial tool that reduces an enumerative problem in dimension n to the corresponding problem n dimension n-1. Floor diagrams give a constructive (and rather efficient) way to find all tropical curves for a given enumerative problem. And once we have a tropical solution of the problem we can use it to solve the corresponding problems over the complex and real numbers.

Presentation of mapping class groups from algebraic geometry
[ Abstract ]
A presentation of the mapping class group of a genus g surface with one hole is due to Wajnryb with later improvements due to M. Matsumoto. The generators are Dehn twists defined by 2g+1 closed curves on the surface. The relations involving only two Dehn twists are the familiar Artin relations, we show that those involving more than two can be derived from algebro-geometry considerations.

Projective varieties with nef anti-canonical divisors
[ Abstract ]
Projective varieties with nef anti-canonical divisors appear naturally in the minimal model program and the theory of classification of higher-dimensional algebraic varieties. In this talk we describe a comprehensive approach to birational geometry of log canonical pair (X, D) with nef anti-canonical class -(K_X+D). In particular, We present two theorems on the birational structure of the varieties. We will also discuss some recent results and new aspects of the subject.

Mikhail Kapranov (Yale 大学)
Riemann-Roch for determinantal gerbes and smooth manifolds
[ Abstract ]
A version of the Riemann-Roch theorem for curves due to Deligne, describes the determinant of the cohomology of a vector bundle E on a curve.
If one realizes E via the Krichever construction, the determinant of the cohomology becomes a Hom-space in the determinantal gerbe for the vector space over the field of power series. So one has a ``local" Riemann-Roch problem of description of this gerbe itself. The talk will present the results of a joint work with E. Vasserot describing the class of such a gerbe in a family which geometrically can be seen as a circle fibration. This can be further generalized to the case of a fibration with fibers being smooth compact manifolds of any dimension d (joint work with P. Bressler, B. Tsygan and E. Vasserot).

Pathologies on ruled surfaces in positive characteristic
[ Abstract ]
We discuss some pathologies of log varieties in positive characteristic. Mainly, we show that on ruled surfaces there are counterexamples of several logarithmic type theorems. On the other hand, we also give a characterization of the counterexamples of the Kawamata-Viehweg vanishing theorem on a geometrically ruled surface by means of the Tango invariant of the base curve.
