Birgit Speh (Cornell University)
Representations of reductive groups and L-functions (II) (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
In the second lecture we will quickly discuss Rankin Selberg integral approach to L-factors and then Shahidi's method of constructing L-functions by relating them to intertwining operators, leading to the definition of the the L-factors of tempered non degenerate representations. The lecture closes with a discussion of L-factors for nontempered representations.

Analysis of the Navier-Stokes and Complex Fluids Flow (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
In this talk, we discuss the dynamics of fluid flow generated by the Navier-Stokes equations or, more generally, by models describing complex fluid flows. Besides classical questions concerning well-posedness of the underlying equations, we investigate analytically models arising in the theory of free boundary value problems, viscoelastic fluids and liquid crystals.

Matthias Hieber (Technische Universität Darmstadt)
Analysis of the Simplified Ericksen-Leslie Model for Liquid Crystals (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Consider the Ericksen-Leslie model for the flow of liquid crystals in a bounded domain $\\Omega \\subset \\R^n$. In this talk we discuss various simplifications of the general model and describe a dynamic theory for the simplified equations by analyzing it as a quasilinear system. In particular, we show the existence of a unique, global, strong solutions to this system provided the initial data are close to an equilibrium or the solution is eventually bounded in the norm of the underlying state space. In this case the solution converges exponentially to an equilibrium. Moreover, the solution is shown to be real analytic, jointly in time and space.
We further analyze a non-isothermal extension of this model safisfying the first and second law of thermodynamics and show that results of the above type hold as well in this setting.
This is joint work with M. Nesensohn, J. Prüss and K. Schade.

Equivariant degenerations of spherical modules (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Given a reductive algebraic group G and an invariant
Hilbert function h, Alexeev and Brion have defined
a moduli scheme M which parametrizes affine G-schemes X
with the property that the coordinate ring of X decomposes,
as G-module, according to the function h. The talk will
be about joint work with Bart Van Steirteghem (New York)
which studies the moduli scheme M under some additional
assumptions.

Birgit Speh (Cornell University)
Representations of reductive groups and L-functions (I) (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
This is an introduction to the theory of L-functions and in particular of the local L-factors of representations in real and complex groups. Some familiarity with infinite dimensional representations would be very helpful, but I will not assume any knowledge of number theory. We will start in the first lecture by considering L-functions for Groessen characters and classical automorphic forms, in other words for automorphic representations of G(1) and GL(2). This will motivate the definition of the local L-factors of representations of GL(1,R) and GL(2,R). Then we will discuss Rankin convolutions and define the L-factors for infinite dimensional tempered representations of GL(n,R).

On new models of real hyperbolic spaces (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
In this talk, I will introduce several new realization of the real hyperbolic spaces, using classical tools. The constructions will involve aspects of convex geometry as well as projective geometry, and they are interesting from the view point of the history of mathematics.

Changzheng Li (IPMU)
Primitive forms via polyvector fields (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
The theory of primitive forms was introduced by Kyoji Saito in early 1980s, which was first known in singularity theory and has attracted much attention in mirror symmetry recently. In this talk, we will introduce a differential geometric approach to primitive forms, using compactly supported polyvector fields. We will first introduce the notion of primitive forms, making it acceptable to general audience. We will use the example of the mirror Laudau-Ginzberg model of P^1 to illustrate such approach. This is my joint work with Si Li and Kyoji Saito.

Smooth 3-manifolds in the 4-sphere (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Everyone who has studied topology knows the compact 2-manifolds that embed in the 3-sphere. One dimension up, the problem of which smooth 3-manifolds embed in the 4-sphere turns out to be much more involved with a handful of partial answers. I will describe what is known at the present moment.

Tom\'as Lungenstrass (Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile)
A Trace Formula for Long-Range Perturbations of the Landau Hamiltonian
(Joint work with Georgi Raikov) (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
The Landau Hamiltonian describes the dynamics of a two-dimensional
charged particle subject to a constant magnetic field. Its spectrum
consists in eigenvalues of infinite multiplicity given by $B(2q+1)$, $q\\in Z_+$. We
consider perturbations of this operator by including a continuous
electric potential that decays slowly at infinity (as $|x|^{-\\rho}$, $0<\\rho<1$).
The spectrum of the perturbed operator consists of eigenvalue clusters
which accumulate to the Landau levels. We provide estimates for the
rate at which the clusters shrink as we move up the energy levels.
Further, we obtain an explicit description of the asymptotic density
of eigenvalues for asymptotically homogeneous long-range potentials in
terms of a mean-value transform of the associated homogeneous
function.

Richard Eager (Kavli IPMU)
Elliptic genera and two dimensional gauge theories (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
The elliptic genus is an important invariant of two dimensional conformal field theories that generalizes the Witten index. In this talk, I will first review the geometric meaning of the elliptic genus and Witten's GLSM construction. Then I will explain how the elliptic genus can be computed directly from a two dimensional gauge theory using localization. The central example of this talk will be the quintic threefold. The GLSM description of the quintic threefold has both a large-volume sigma model description and a Landau-Ginzburg description. I will explain how the GLSM calculation of the index reproduces the old results in these two phases. Time permitting, further applications and generalizations will be discussed.
