Shane Kelly (Graduate School of Mathematical Sciences, the University of Tokyo)
Motivic cohomology: theory and applications (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
The motive of a smooth projective algebraic variety was originally envisaged by Grothendieck in the 60's as a generalisation of the Jacobian of a curve, and formed part of a strategy to prove the Weil conjectures. In the 90s, following conjectures of Beilinson on special values of L-functions, Voevodsky, together with Friedlander, Morel, Suslin, and others, generalised this to the A^1-homotopy type of a general algebraic variety. This A^1-homotopy theory lead to a proof of the Block-Kato conjecture (and a Fields Medal for Voevodsky).
One consequence of making things A^1-invariant is that unipotent groups (as well as wild ramification, irregular singularities, nilpotents including higher nilpotents in the sense of derived algebraic geometry, certain parts of K-theory, etc) become invisible and the last decade has seen a number of candidates for a non-A^1-invariant theory.
In this talk I will give an introduction to the classical theory and discuss some current and future research directions.

Neal Bez (Graduate School of Science and Engineering, Saitama University)
The Fourier restriction conjecture (English)
[ Abstract ]
The Fourier restriction conjecture is a central problem in modern harmonic analysis which traces back to deep observations of Elias M. Stein in the 1960s. The conjecture enjoys some remarkable connections to areas such as geometric measure theory, PDE, and number theory. In this talk, I will introduce the conjecture and discuss a few of these connections.

Yoshiki Oshima (Graduate School of Mathematical Sciences, the University of Tokyo)
Unitary representations of real reductive Lie groups and the method of coadjoint orbits (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
The orbit method aims to study unitary representations of Lie groups by relating them to coadjoint actions. It is known that for unipotent groups there exists a one-to-one correspondence between the unitary representations and the coadjoint orbits. For reductive groups it has been observed that one is a good approximation of the other. In this talk, we would like to discuss some results on induction and restriction for reductive Lie groups from the viewpoint of orbit method.

Yukinobu Toda (Kavli IPMU, The University of Tokyo)
Curve counting theories and categorification

(JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
There exist several curve counting theories on Calabi-Yau 3-folds such as Gromov-Witten invariants, Donaldson-Thomas invariants, Pandharipande-Thomas invariants and Gopakumar-Vafa invariants. These invariants are expected to be related each other, but most of them are still conjectural. In this talk, I will survey the recent developments of the study of these curve counting theories. If time permits, I will also explain my recent works on categorification of curve counting theories.

Growth vectors of distributions and lines on projective hypersurfaces (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
For a distribution on a manifold, its growth vector is a finite sequence of integers measuring the dimensions of the directions spanned by successive Lie brackets of local vector fields belonging to the distribution. The growth vector is the most basic invariant of a distribution, but it is sometimes hard to compute. As an example, we discuss natural distributions on the spaces of lines covering hypersurfaces of low degrees in the complex projective space. We explain the ideas in a joint work with Qifeng Li where the growth vector is determined for lines on a general hypersurface of degree 4 and dimension 5.

Gang Tian (BICMR, Peking University)
Ricci flow on Fano manifolds (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Ricci flow was introduced by Hamilton in early 80s. It preserves the Kahlerian structure and has found many applications in Kahler geometry. In this expository talk, I will focus on Ricci flow on Fano manifolds. I will first survey some results in recent years, then I will discuss my joint work with Li and Zhu. I will also discuss the connection between the long time behavior of Ricci flow and some algebraic geometric problems for Fano manifolds.

Research Ethics in Computer Aided Mathematics (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
Since the solution of the four colored problem, a computer aided method has been expanding its base in mathematical research based on quite rapid development of Information Technology. Since then, it has been asked what the proof is, which is fundamental in mathematical research ethics. In this talk, I would like to present a history of discussions on this matter until now and to discuss some future aspect.

What's keeping back female mathematicians & physicists? (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
In Japan, female students' rate is low in mathematics and physics. The American Educational Psychology group pointed out there are three factors. We extended the model and added gender inequality  social climate factors. We confirmed that the new factors influenced the male image of mathematics and physics in Japan and England. I would like to Introduce interdisciplinary research on science and technology society.

Yuji Tachikawa (Kavli IPMU)
Physics and algebraic topology (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Although we often talk about the "unreasonable effectiveness of mathematics in the natural sciences", there are great disparities in the relevance of various subbranches of mathematics to individual fields of natural sciences. Algebraic topology was a subject whose influence to physics remained relatively minor for a long time, but in the last several years, theoretical physicists started to appreciate the effectiveness of algebraic topology more seriously. For example, there is now a general consensus that the classification of the symmetry-protected topological phases, which form a class of phases of matter with a certain particularly simple property, is done in terms of generalized cohomology theories.

In this talk, I would like to provide a historical overview of the use of algebraic topology in physics, emphasizing a few highlights along the way. If the time allows, I would also like to report my struggle to understand the anomaly of heterotic strings, using the theory of topological modular forms.

Uniform bound of the number of weighted blow-ups to compute the minimal log discrepancy for smooth 3-folds (Talk in Japanese, Slide in English)
[ Abstract ]
In the talk I will show that the minimal log discrepancy of every pair consisting of a smooth 3-fold and a "general" real ideal is computed by the divisor obtained by at most two weighted blow ups. Our proof suggests the following conjecture:

Every pair consisting of a smooth N-fold and a "general" real ideal is computed by a divisor obtained by at most N-1 weighted blow ups.

This is regarded as a weighted blow up version of Mustata-Nakamura's conjecture. The condition "general" is slightly weakened from the version presented in ZAG Seminar.

Exact WKB analysis and related topics
[ Abstract ]
Exact WKB analysis, developed by Voros et.al., is an effective method for global study of (singularly perturbed) ordinary differential equations defined on a complex domain. After recalling several fundamental facts on exact WKB analysis, I'll talk about relationships to other research topics, such as cluster algebras, topological recursion, integrable systems of Painlevé type, etc.

Arithmeticity of discrete subgroups (英語)
[ Abstract ]
By a theorem of Borel and Harish-Chandra,
an arithmetic group in a semisimple Lie group is a lattice.
Conversely, by a celebrated theorem of Margulis,
in a higher rank semisimple Lie group G
any irreducible lattice is an arithmetic group.

The aim of this lecture is to survey an
arithmeticity criterium for discrete subgroups
which are not assumed to be lattices.
This criterium, obtained with Miquel,
generalizes works of Selberg and Hee Oh
and solves a conjecture of Margulis. It says:
a discrete irreducible Zariski-dense subgroup
of G that intersects cocompactly at least one
horospherical subgroup of G is an arithmetic group.
