An explicit construction of point sets with large minimum Dick weight (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
Walsh figure of merit WAFOM($P$) is a quality measure of point sets $P$ for quasi-Monte Carlo integration constructed by a digital net method. WAFOM($P$) is bounded by the minimum Dick weight of $P^¥perp$, where the Dick weight is a generalization of Hamming weight. In this talk, we give an explicit construction of point sets with large minimum Dick weight using Niederreiter-Xing sequences and Dick's interleaving construction. These point sets are also examples of low-WAFOM point sets.

A p-adic exponential map for the Picard group and its application to curves (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
Let $\\mathcal{X}$ be a proper flat scheme over a complete discrete valuation ring $O_k$ of characteristic $(0,p)$. We define an exponential map from a subgroup of the first cohomology group of $O_¥mathcal{X}$ to the Picard group of $\\mathcal{X}$, mimicking the classical construction in complex geometry. This exponential map can be applied to prove a surjectivity property concerning the Albanese variety $Alb_{X}$ of a smooth variety $X$ over $k$.

Hodge index theorem for adelic line bundles (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
The Hodge index theorem of Faltings and Hriljac asserts that the Neron-Tate height pairing on a projective curve over a number field is equal to certain intersection pairing in the setting of Arakelov geometry. In the talk, I will present an extension of the result to adelic line bundles on higher dimensional varieties over finitely generated fields. Then we will talk about its relation to the non-archimedean Calabi-Yau theorem and the its application to algebraic dynamics. This is a joint work with Shou-Wu Zhang.

On logarithmic nonabelian Hodge theory of higher level in characteristic p (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
Ogus and Vologodsky studied a positive characteristic analogue of Simpson’s nonanelian Hodge theory over the complex number field. Now most part of their theory has been generalized to the case of log schemes by Schepler. In this talk, we generalize the global Cartier transform, which is one of the main theorem in nonabelian Hodge theory in positive characteristic, to the case of log schemes and of higher level. This can be regarded as a higher level version of a result of Schepler.

Good reduction of ramified affinoids in the Lubin-Tate perfectoid space (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Recently, Weinstein finds some affinoids in the Lubin-Tate perfectoid space and computes their reduction in equal characteristic case. The cohomology of the reduction realizes the local Langlands correspondence for some representations of GL_h, which are unramified in some sense. In this talk, we introduce other affinoids in the Lubin-Tate perfectoid space in equal characteristic case, whose reduction realizes "ramified" representations of conductor exponent h+1. We call them ramified affinoids. We study the cohomology of the reduction and its relation with the local Langlands correspondence. This is a joint work with Takahiro Tsushima.

Motivic structure on higher homotopy of non-nilpotent spaces (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
In his fundamental paper on the projective line minus three points, Deligne constructed certain extensions of mixed Tate motives arising from the fundamental group of the projective line minus three points. Since then, motivic structures on homotopy groups have been studied by many authors. In this talk, we will construct a motivic structure on the (nilpotent completion of) n-th homotopy group of P^{n} minus n+2 hyperplanes in general position.

On differential modules associated to de Rham representations in the imperfect residue field case (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Let K be a CDVF of mixed characteristic (0,p) and G the absolute Galois group of K. When the residue field of K is perfect, Laurent Berger constructed a p-adic differential equation N_dR(V) for any de Rham representation V of G. In this talk, we will generalize his construction when the residue field of K is not perfect. We also explain some ramification properties of our N_dR, which are due to Adriano Marmora in the perfect residue field case.

A generalization of Kato's local epsilon conjecture for
(φ, Γ)-modules over the Robba ring (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
In his preprint “Lectures on the approach to Iwasawa theory of Hasse-Weil L-functions via B_dR, Part II ", Kazuya Kato proposed a conjecture called local epsilon conjecture. This conjecture predicts that the determinant of the Galois cohomology of a family of p-adic Galois representations has a canonical base whose specializations at de Rham points can be characterized by using Bloch-Kato exponential, L-factors and Deligne-Langlands epsilon constants of the associated Weil-Deligne representations.
In my talk, I generalize his conjecture for families of (φ, Γ)-modules over the Robba ring, and prove a part of this conjecture in the trianguline case. The two key ingredients are the recent result of Kedlaya-Pottharst-Xiao on the finiteness of cohomologies of (φ, Γ)-modules and my result on Bloch-Kato exponential map for (φ, Γ)-modules.

The Tate conjecture for K3 surfaces and holomorphic symplectic varieties over finite fields (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
We prove the Tate conjecture for divisors on reductions of holomorphic symplectic varieties over finite fields -- with some restrictions on the characteristic of the base field. We will be concerned mostly with the supersingular case. As a special case, we prove the Tate conjecture, also known as Artin's conjecture in our case, for K3 surfaces over finite fields of characteristic at least 5 and for codimension 2 cycles on cubic fourfolds.

De Rham-Witt complexes with coefficients and rigid cohomology
[ Abstract ]
For a smooth scheme over a perfect field of characteristic p, we will explain a generalization of the classical comparison theorem between crystalline cohomology and de Rham-Witt cohomology to the case of cohomologies with coefficients in a p-torsion free crystal. This provides in particular a description of the rigid cohomology of a proper singular scheme in terms of a de Rham-Witt complex built from a closed immersion into a smooth scheme.

Voevodsky motives and a theorem of Gabber (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
The assumption that the base field satisfies resolution of singularities litters Voevodsky's work on motives. While we don't have resolution of singularities in positive characteristic p, there is a theorem of Gabber on alterations which may be used as a substitute if we are willing to work with Z[1/p] coefficients. We will discuss how this theorem of Gabber may be applied in the context of Voevodsky's work and mention some consequences.

Patrick Forré (University of Tokyo)
A cohomological Hasse principle of varieties over higher local fields and applications to higher dimensional class field theory (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
In this talk I will give an overview of the necessary tools for a description of the class field theory of varieties over higher local fields developed by sevaral mathematicians. On this I will motivate the importance of the proposal and verification of a cohomological Hasse principle for varieties over higher local fields, a generalization of Kato's conjectures, and sketch the recent progress on this.

On the reduction modulo p of representations of a quaternion
division algebra over a p-adic field (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
The p-adic Langlands correspondence and the mod p Langlands correspondence for GL_2(Q_p) are known to be compatible with the reduction modulo p in many cases.
In this talk, we examine whether a similar compatibility exists for the composition of the local Langlands correspondence and the local Jacquet-Langlands correspondence.
The simplest case has already been treated by Vign¥'eras. We deal with more cases.

Kernel of the monodromy operator for semistable curves (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
For a semistable curve, we study the action of the monodromy operator on the first log-crystalline cohomology group. In particular we examine the relation between the kernel of the monodromy operator and the first rigid cohomology group, in the case of trivial coefficients, giving a new proof of a theorem of B. Chiarellotto and in the case of certain unipotent F-isocrystals as coefficients.
This is a joint work in progress with B. Chiarellotto, R. Coleman and A. Iovita.

Simply connected elliptic surfaces (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
We characterize simply connected elliptic surfaces by their singular fibers in any characteristic case. To this end, we study orbifolds of curves, local canonical bundle formula, and resolutions of multiple fibers. The result was known for the complex analytic case. Our method can be applied to the rigid analytic case.

Naoya Umezaki (University of Tokyo)
On uniform bound of the maximal subgroup of the inertia group acting unipotently on $¥ell$-adic cohomology (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
For a smooth projective variety over a local field,
the action of the inertia group on the $¥ell$-adic cohomology group is
unipotent if it is restricted to some open subgroup.
In this talk, we give a uniform bound of the index of the maximal open
subgroup satisfying this property.
This bound depends only on the Betti numbers of $X$ and certain Chern
numbers depending on a projective embedding of $X$.

Explicit constructions of rational points on elliptic curves (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
I will present an algorithm for computing certain special
values of p-adic L-functions, and discuss an application to
the efficient construction of rational points on elliptic curves.

Around the Mordell-Lang conjecture in positive characteristic (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Let V be a subvariety of an abelian variety A over C and let G\\subseteq A(C) be a subgroup. The classical Mordell-Lang conjecture predicts that if V is of general type and G\\otimesQ is finite dimensional, then V\\cap G is not Zariski dense in V. This statement contains the Mordell conjecture as well as the Manin-Mumford conjecture (for curves). The positive characteristic analog of the Mordell-Lang conjecture makes sense, when A is supposed to have no subquotient, which is defined over a finite field. This positive characteristic analog was proven in 1996 by E. Hrushovski using model-theoretic methods. We shall discuss the prehistory and context of this proof. We shall also discuss the proof (due to the speaker) of the fact that in positive characteristic, the Manin-Mumford conjecture implies the Mordell-Lang conjecture (whereas this seems far from true in characteristic 0).

Twistor $D$-module and harmonic bundle (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
We shall overview the theory of twistor $D$-modules and
harmonic bundles. I am planning to survey the following topics,
motivated by the Hard Lefschetz Theorem for semisimple holonomic

1. What is a twistor $D$-module?
2. Local structure of meromorphic flat bundles
3. Wild harmonic bundles from local and global viewpoints

New perspectives on the Breuil-Mézard conjecture (joint with M. Emerton)
[ Abstract ]
I will discuss joint work with Matthew Emerton on geometric approaches to the Breuil-Mézard conjecture, generalising a geometric approach of Breuil and Mézard. I will discuss a proof of the geometric version of the original conjecture, as well as work in progress on a geometric version of the conjecture which does not make use of a fixed residual representation.
