Skein algebra and mapping class group (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
We define some filtrations of skein modules and the skein algebra on an oriented surface, and define the completed skein modules and
the completed skein algebra of the surface with respect to these filtration. We give an explicit formula for the action of the Dehn
twists on the completed skein modules in terms of the action of the completed skein algebra of the surface. As an application, we describe the action of the Johnson kernel on the completed skein modules.

An extension of the LMO functor (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
Cheptea, Habiro and Massuyeau introduced the LMO functor as an extension of the LMO invariant of closed 3-manifolds. The LMO functor is “the monoidal category of Lagrangian cobordisms between surfaces with at most one boundary component” to “the monoidal category of top-substantial Jacobi diagrams”. In this talk, we extend the LMO functor to the case of any number of boundary components. Moreover, we explain that the internal degree d part of the extension is a finite-type invariant of degree d.

A construction of dynamical Yang-Baxter map with dynamical brace (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
Brace is an algebraic system defined as a generalization of the radical ring. The radical ring means a ring $(R,+,¥cdot)$, which has a group structure with respect to $a*b:=ab+a+b$. By using brace, Rump constructs the non-degenerate Yang-Baxter map with unitary condition.

In this talk I will propose the dynamical brace, which is a generalization of the brace, and give a way to construct the dynamical Yang-Baxter map by using the dynamical brace. A dynamical Yang-Baxter map is a set-theoretical solution of the dynamical Yang-Baxter equation. Moreover, I will discuss algebraic and combinatorial properties of the dynamical brace.

Construction of Hopf algebroids by means of dynamical Yang-Baxter maps (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
A generalization of the Hopf algebra is a Hopf algebroid. Felder and Etingof-Varchenko constructed Hopf algebroids from the dynamical R-matrices, solutions to the quantum dynamical Yang-Baxter equation (QDYBE for short). This QDYBE was generalized, and several solutions called dynamical Yang-Baxter maps to this generalized equation were constructed. The purpose of this talk is to introduce construction of Hopf algebroids by means of dynamical Yang-Baxter maps. If time permits, I will explain that the tensor category of finite-dimensional L-operators associated with the suitable dynamical Yang-Baxter map is rigid. This tensor category is isomorphic to that consisting of finite-dimensional (dynamical) representations of the corresponding Hopf algebroid.

On Gram matrices of the Shapovalov form of a basic representation of a
quantum affine group (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
We consider Gram matrices of the Shapovalov form of a basic
of a quantum affine group. We present a conjecture predicting the
factors of these matrices and proving that it gives the correct
when one specializes or localizes the ring $\mathbb{Z}[v,v^{-1}]$ in
certain ways.
This generalizes Evseev's theorem which settled affirmatively
the K\"{u}lshammer-Olsson-Robinson conjecture that predicts
the generalized Cartan invariants of the symmetric groups.
This is a joint work with Anton Evseev.

Continuous and Infinitesimal Hecke algebras (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
In the late 80's V. Drinfeld introduced the notion of the
degenerate affine Hecke algebras. The particular class of those, called
symplectic reflection algebras, has been rediscovered 15 years later by
[Etingof and Ginzburg]. The theory of those algebras (which include also
the rational Cherednik algebras) has attracted a lot of attention in the
last 15 years.
In this talk we will discuss their continuous and infinitesimal versions,
introduced by [Etingof, Gan, and Ginzburg]. Our key result relates those
classical algebras to the simplest 1-block finite W-algebras.

Renormalization group method for many-electron systems (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
We consider quantum many-body systems of electrons
hopping and interacting on a lattice at positive temperature.
As it is possible to write down each order term rigorously in
principle, the perturbation series expansion with the coupling
constant between electrons is thought as a valid method to
compute physical quantities. By directly estimating each term,
one can prove that the perturbation series is convergent if the
coupling constant is less than some power of temperature. This is,
however, a serious constraint for models of interacting electrons
in low temperature. In order to ensure the analyticity of physical
quantities of many-electron systems with the coupling constant in
low temperature, renormalization group methods have been developed
in recent years. As one progress in this direction, we construct a
renormalization group method for the half-filled Hubbard model on a
square lattice, which is a typical model of many-electron, and prove
the following. If the system contains the magnetic flux pi (mod 2 pi)
per plaquette, the free energy density of the system is analytic with
the coupling constant in a neighborhood of the origin and it uniformly
converges to the infinite-volume, zero-temperature limit. It is known
that the flux pi condition is sufficient for the free energy density
to be minimum. Thus, it follows that the same analyticity and the
convergent property hold for the minimum free energy density of the

Unitary transformations and multivariate special
orthogonal polynomials (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
Investigations into special orthogonal function systems by
using unitary transformations have a long history.
This is, by calculating an image of some unitary transform (e.g. Fourier
trans.) of a known orthogonal system, we derive a new orthogonal system
and obtain its fundamental properties.
This basic concept and technique have been known since ancient times for
a single variable case, and recently these multivariate analogue has
been studied by Davidson, Olafsson, Zhang, Faraut, Wakayama

In our talk, we introduce the unitary picture for the circular Jacobi
polynomials obtained by Shen, further give a multivariate analogue of
the results of Shen.  
These polynomials, which we call multivariate circular Jacobi (MCJ)
polynomials, are generalizations (2-parameter deformation) of the
spherical (zonal) polynomials that are different from the Jack or
Macdonald polynomials, which are well known as an extension of spherical
We also remark that the weight function of their orthogonality relation
coincides with the circular Jacobi ensemble defined by Bourgade,et,al.,
and the modified Cayley transform of the MCJ polynomials satisfy with
some quasi differential equation.
In addition, we can give a generalization of MCJ polynomials as
including the Jack polynomials.
For this generalized MCJ polynomials, we would like to present some
conjectures and problems.

If we have time, we also describe a unitary picture of Meixner,
Charlier and Krawtchouk polynomials which are typical examples of
discrete orthogonal systems, and mention their multivariate analogue.

An explicit formula for the specialization of nonsymmetric
Macdonald polynomials at $t = \infty$ (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
Orr-Shimozono obtained an explicit formula for nonsymmetric Macdonald polynomials with Hecke parameter $t$ set to $\infty$, which is described in terms of an affine root system
and an affine Weyl group. On the basis of this work, we give another explicit formula for the specialization above, which is described in terms of the quantum Bruhat graph associated with a finite root system and a finite Weyl group.
More precisely, we interpret the specialization above as the graded character of an explicitly specified set of quantum Lakshmibai-Seshadri (LS) paths. Here we note that the set of quantum LS paths (of a given shape) provides an explicit realization of the crystal basis of a quantum Weyl module over the quantum affine algebra.
In this talk, I will explain our explicit formula
by exhibiting a few examples.
Also, I will give an outline of the proof.

divisor function and strict partition (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
We know that the q-series identity of Uchimura-type is related with the divisor function.
It is obtained also as a specialization of basic hypergeometric series.
In this seminar, we interprete this identity from the point of view of combinatorics of partitions of integers.
We give its proof by using the mock involution map.

Entanglement spectra in topological phases and coupled Tomonaga-Luttinger liquids (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
The entanglement spectrum (ES) has been found to provide useful probes of topological phases of matter and other exotic strongly correlated states. For the system's ground state, the ES is defined as the full eigenvalue spectrum of the reduced density matrix obtained by tracing out the degrees of freedom in part of the system. A key result observed in various topological phases and other gapped systems has been the remarkable correspondence between the ES and the edge-state spectrum. While this correspondence has been analytically proven for some topological phases, it is interesting to ask what systems show this correspondence more generally and how the ES changes when the bulk energy gap closes.

We here study the ES in two coupled Tomonaga-Luttinger liquids (TLLs) on parallel periodic chains. In addition to having direct applications to ladder systems, this problem is closely related to the entanglement properties of two-dimensional topological phases. Based on the calculation for coupled chiral TLLs, we provide a simple physical proof for the correspondence between edge states and the ES in quantum Hall systems consistent with previous numerical and analytical studies. We also discuss violations of this correspondence in gapped and gapless phases of coupled non-chiral TLLs.

Colored HOMFLY homology of knots and links (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
In this talk I will present structural properties of colored HOMFLY homology of knots and links. These rich properties of the categorification of the colored HOMFLY polynomial are obtained by using various methods: physics insights, representation theory of Lie super-algebras, double affine Hecke algebras, etc. This in turn enables computation of colored HOMFLY homology for various classes of knots and links and consequent computation of super-A-polynomial - the deformation of the classical A-polynomial. I will also explain recent results and special additional properties for colored Kauffman homology as well as the case of links. Although I will try to give a talk accessible to mathematicians, there is no proof and rigorousness in this talk.

Saga of Dunkl elements (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
The Dunkl operators has been introduced by C. Dunkl in the middle of
80's of the last century as a powerful mean in the study of orthogonal
polynomials related with finite Coxeter groups. Later it was discovered
a deep connection of the the Dunkl operators with the theory of
Integrable systems and Invariant Theory.
In my talk I introduce and study a certain class of nonhomogeneous
quadratic algebras together with the distinguish set of mutually
commuting elements inside of each, the so-called universal Dunkl elements.
The main problem I would like to discuss is : What is the algebra
generated by universal Dunkl elements in a different representations of
the quadratic algebra introduced ?
I'm planning to present partial answers on that problem related with
classical and quantum Schubert and Grothendieck Calculi as well as the
theory of elliptic series.
Also some interesting algebraic properties of the quadratic algebra(s)
in question will be described.

On the extended algebra of type sl_2 at positive rational level (ENGLISH)

I will be presenting my recent work with Akihiro Tsuchiya
I will explain how to construct a certain VOA called the "extended
algebra of type sl_2 at positive rational level"
as a subVOA of a lattice VOA, by means of screening operators. I will
then show that this VOA carries a kind of exterior sl_2 action and then
show how one can compute the structure Zhu's algebra and the Poisson
algebra as well as classify all simple modules by using the screening
operators and the sl_2 action. Important concepts such as screening
operators or Zhu's algebra and the Poisson algebra of a VOA will be
reviewed in the talk.

Generalized Calogero-Moser type systems and Cherednik Algebras (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Calogero-Moser systems can be obtained using Dunkl operators, which
define the polynomial representation of the corresponding rational
Cherednik algebra. Parabolic ideals invariant under the action of the
Dunkl operators give submodules of Cherednik algebra. Considering the
corresponding quotient-modules one yields the generalized (or deformed)
Calogero-Moser systems. In the same way we construct the generalized
elliptic Calogero-Moser systems using the elliptic Dunkl operators
obtained by Buchstaber, Felder and Veselov. The Macdonald-Ruijsenaars
systems (difference (relativistic) Calogero-Moser type systems) can be
considered in terms of Double Affine Hecke Algebra (DAHA). We construct
appropriate submodules in the polynomial representation of DAHA, which
were obtained by Kasatani for some affine root systems. Considering the
corresponding quotient representation we derive the generalized
(deformed) Macdonald-Ruijsenaars systems for any affine root system,
which where obtained by Sergeev and Veselov for the A series. This is
joint work with Misha Feigin.

Manin matrices and quantum integrable systems (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Manin matrices (known also as right quantum matrices) is a class of
matrices with non-commutative entries. The natural generalization of the
usual determinant for these matrices is so-called column determinant.
Manin matrices, their determinants and minors have the most part of the
properties possessed by the usual number matrices. Manin matrices arise
from the RLL-relations and help to find quantum analogues of Poisson
commuting traces of powers of Lax operators and to establish relations
between different types of quantum commuting families. The RLL-relations
also give us q-analogues of Manin matrices in the case of trigonometric
R-matrix (which define commutation relations for the quantum affine

CKP Hierarchy, Bosonic Tau Function, Bosonization Formulae and Orthogonal Polynomials both in Odd and Even Variables
(based on a joint work with Johan van de Leur and Takahiro Shiota) (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
We develop the theory of CKP hierarchy introduced in the papers of Kyoto school where the CKP tau function is written as a vacuum expectation value in terms of free bosons. We show that a sort of odd currents naturaly appear. We consider bosonization formulae which relate bosonic Fock vectors to polynomials in even and odd Grassmannian variables, where both sets play a role of higher times.

Quantization of Quasimaps' Spaces (joint work with M. Finkelberg) (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Quasimaps' space Z_d (also known as Drinfeld's Zastava space) is a
remarkable compactification of the space of based degree d maps from
the projective line to the flag variety of type A. The space Z_d has a
natural Poisson structure,
which goes back to Atiyah and Hitchin. We describe
the Quasimaps' space as some quiver variety, and define the
Atiyah-Hitchin Poisson structure in quiver terms.
This gives a natural way to quantize this Poisson structure.
The quantization of the coordinate ring of the Quasimaps' space turns
to be some natural subquotient of the Yangian of type A.
I will also discuss some generalization of this result to the BCD types.

Quantum integrable models with elliptic R-matrices
and elliptic hypergeometric series (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Intertwining operators for infinite-dimensional representations of the
Sklyanin algebra with spins l and -l-1 are constructed using the technique of
intertwining vectors for elliptic L-operator. They are expressed in
terms of
elliptic hypergeometric series with operator argument. The intertwining
operators obtained (W-operators) serve as building blocks for the
elliptic R-matrix
which intertwines tensor product of two L-operators taken in
representations of the Sklyanin algebra with arbitrary spin. The
Yang-Baxter equation
for this R-matrix follows from simpler equations of the star-triangle
type for the
W-operators. A natural graphic representation of the objects and
equations involved
in the construction is used.

On the module category of $¥overline{U}_q(¥mathfrak{sl}_2)$ (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
In the representation theory of quantum groups at roots of unity, it is
often assumed that the parameter $q$ is a primitive $n$-th root of unity
where $n$ is a odd prime number. However, there has recently been
increasing interest in the the cases where $n$ is an even integer ---
for example, in the study of logarithmic conformal field theories, or in
knot invariants. In this talk,
we work out a fairly detailed study on the category of finite
modules of the restricted quantum $¥overline{U}_q(¥mathfrak{sl}_2)$
$q$ is a $2p$-th root of unity, $p¥ge2$.

A factorization formula for Macdonald polynomials at roots of unity (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
We consider a combinatorial property of Macdonald polynomials at roots
of unity.
If we made some plethystic substitution to the variables,
Macdonald polynomials are subjected to a certain decomposition rule
when a parameter is specialized at roots of unity.
We review the result and give an outline of the proof.

Three-term recurrence relations for a $BC_n$-type basic hypergeometric function and their application (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
$BC_n$-type basic hypergeometric series are a certain $q$-analogue
of an integral representation for the Gauss hypergeometric function.
They are defined as multiple $q$-series satisfying Weyl group symmetry of type $C_n$,
and they are a multi-sum generalization of the basic hypergeometric series
in a class of what is called (very-)well-poised. In my talk I will explain
an explicit expression for the $q$-difference system of rank $n+1$
satisfied by a $BC_n$-type basic hypergeometric series with 6+1 parameters
as first order simultaneous $q$-difference equations with a concrete basis.
For this purpose I introduce two types of symmetric Laurent polynomials
which I call the $BC$-type interpolation polynomials. The polynomials satisfy
three-term relations like a contiguous relation for the Gauss hypergeometric
function. As an application, I will show another proof for the product formula
of the $q$-integral introduced by Gustafson.

Laplacian on graphs: Examples from physics
[ Abstract ]
When the Laplacian operator is written as a second order difference operator the physicists refer to it as a tight-binding model. In two dimensions the eigenvalue problem connects the function at a given point to the sum of its values on its nearest neighbors. In numerous physical problems, some of the coefficients are multiplied by phase factors. This problem is amazingly rich and the pattern of eigenvalues E(φ) has a fractal nature known as the Hofstadter butterfly.
I will discuss some of these models and especially concentrate on two problems, which I solved recently, where the vertices of the graphs are located on the sphere S2. The first one corresponds to the famous problem of the Dirac magnetic monopole, while in the second one, the eigenfunctions are two component vectors and the phase factors are replaced by unitary 2x2 matrices. This is relevant to the spin-orbit problem in Physics. In both cases the solutions can be obtained in closed form, and exhibit a beautiful symmetry pattern. Their elucidation requires some special techniques in graph theory. Quite surprisingly, the spectra of the two systems coincide at one symmetry point.

theories. Their natural generalization turn to coincide with
the conformal blocks of two-dimensional conformal
field theories. In special case these conformal
blocks turn into the scalar products of certain ``coherent
states'' in the highest-weight module of the Virasoro
algebra, generalizing the matrix elements
for the well-known coherent states in Fock spaces.
