Kota Hattori (University of Tokyo)
A generalization of Taub-NUT deformations (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
Taub-NUT metric on C^2 is a complete Ricci-flat Kaehler metric which is not flat. It is obtained by the Taub-NUT deformations of the Euclidean metric on C^2 using an S^1 action. Taub-NUT deformations are known to be defined for toric hyperKaehler manifolds, and deform ALE metrics to non-ALE metrics. In this talk, I explain a generalization of Taub-NUT deformations by using noncommutative Lie groups.

Kenta Hayano (Osaka University)
Vanishing cycles and homotopies of wrinkled fibrations (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
Wrinkled fibrations on closed 4-manifolds are stable
maps to closed surfaces with only indefinite singularities. Such
fibrations and variants of them have been studied for the past few years
to obtain new descriptions of 4-manifolds using mapping class groups.
Vanishing cycles of wrinkled fibrations play a key role in these studies.
In this talk, we will explain how homotopies of wrinkled fibrtions affect
their vanishing cycles. Part of the results in this talk is a joint work
with Stefan Behrens (Max Planck Institute for Mathematics).

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.

KIDA Yoshikata (Kyoto University)
Rigidity for amalgamated free products and their envelopes (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
For a discrete countable group L, we mean by an envelope of L a locally compact second countable group having a lattice isomorphic to L. In general, it is quite hard to describe all envelopes of a given L. This problem is closely related to orbit equivalence between probability-measure-preserving actions of groups, and also related to Mostow type rigidity. I explain a fundamental idea to attack this problem, and give examples of groups for which the problem is solved. The examples contain mapping class groups of surfaces and certain amalgamated free products. An outline to get an answer for the latter groups will be discussed.

Tetsuya Ito (RIMS, Kyoto University)
Homological intersection in braid group representation and dual
Garside structure (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
One method to construct linear representations of braid groups is to use
an action of braid groups on certain homology of local system coefficient.
Many famous representations, such as Burau or Lawrence-Krammer-Bigelow
representations are constructed in such a way. We show that homological
intersections on such homology groups are closely related to the dual
Garside structure, a remarkable combinatorial structure of braid, and
prove that some representations detects the length of braids in a
surprisingly simple way.
This work is partially joint with Bert Wiest (Univ. Rennes1).

The homomorphisms between scalar generalized Verma modules of gl(n,C) with regular infinitesimal characters (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
We will explain the classification of the homomorphisms between scalar generalized Verma modules of gl(n,C) with regular infinitesimal characters. In fact, they are compositions of elementary homomorphisms. The main ingredient of our proof is the translation principle in the mediocre region.

Francis Sergeraert (L'Institut Fourier, Univ. de Grenoble)
Discrete vector fields and fundamental algebraic topology.
(ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Robin Forman invented the notion of Discrete Vector Field in 1997.
A recent common work with Ana Romero allowed us to discover the notion
of Eilenberg-Zilber discrete vector field. Giving the topologist a
totally new understanding of the fundamental tools of combinatorial
algebraic topology: Eilenberg-Zilber theorem, twisted Eilenberg-Zilber
theorem, Serre and Eilenberg-Moore spectral sequences,
Eilenberg-MacLane correspondence between topological and algebraic
classifying spaces. Gives also new efficient algorithms for Algebraic
Topology, considerably improving our computer program Kenzo, devoted
to Constructive Algebraic Topology. The talk is devoted to an
introduction to discrete vector fields, the very simple definition of
the Eilenberg-Zilber vector field, and how it can be used in various
contexts.

Naoki Imai (University of Tokyo)
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.

K studied by Oguiso and Sakurai. Our study completes the

group. I will then discuss special Lagrangian T3-fibrations of
Calabi-Yau threefolds of type K. This talk is based on a joint work
with Kenji Hashimoto.

Andrei Pajitnov (Univ. de Nantes)
Twisted Novikov homology and jump loci in formal and hyperformal spaces (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Let X be a CW-complex, G its fundamental group, and R a repesentation of G.
Any element of the first cohomology group of X gives rise to an exponential
deformation of R, which can be considered as a curve in the space of
representations. We show that the cohomology of X with local coefficients
corresponding to the generic point of this curve is computable from a spectral
sequence starting from the cohomology of X with R-twisted coefficients. We
compute the differentials of the spectral sequence in terms of Massey products,
and discuss some particular cases arising in Kaehler geometry when the spectral
sequence degenerates. We explain the relation of these invariants and the
twisted Novikov homology. This is a joint work with Toshitake Kohno.

We investigate the macroscopic thermal conductivity of a chain of anharmonic oscillators and more general systems, under weak coupling limits and energy conserving stochastic perturbations of the dynamics. In particular we establish a series expansion in the coupling parameter.

Professor Igor Reider (Universite d'Angers / RIMS)
Kodaira-Spencer classes, geometry of surfaces of general type and Torelli
theorem (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
In this talk I will explain a geometric interpretation of Kodaira-Spencer classes and apply
it to the study of the differential of the period map of weight 2 Hodge structures for surfaces
of general type.
My approach is based on interpreting Kodaira-Spencer classes as higher rank bundles and
then studing their stability. This naturally leads to two parts:
1) unstable case
2) stable case.
I will give a geometric characterization of the first case and show how to relate the second
case to a special family of vector bundles giving rise to a family of rational curves. This family
of rational curves is used to recover the surface in question.

Directional maximal operators and radial weights on the plane
(JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
Let $\\Omega$ be a set of unit vectors and $w$ be a radial weight on the plane. We consider the weighted directional maximal operator defined by
$M_{\\Omega,w}f(x):=\\sup_{x\\in R\\in \\cB_{\\Omega}}\\frac{1}{w(R)}\\int_{R}|f(y)|w(y)dy$,
where $\\cB_{\\Omega}$ denotes the all rectangles on the plane whose longest side is parallel to some unit vector in $\\Omega$ and $w(R)$ denotes $\\int_{R}w$.
In this talk we give a sufficient condition of the weight
for an almost-orthogonality principle related to these maximal operators to hold. The condition allows us to get weighted norm inequality
$\\|M_{\\Omega,w}f\\|_{L^2(w)}\\le C \\log N \\|f\\|_{L^2(w)}$,
when $w(x)=|x|^a$, $a>0$, and $\\Omega$ is a set of unit vectors on the plane with cardinality $N\\gg 1$.

An approximation scheme for the anisotropic and the planar crystalline curvature flow (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
In 2004 Chambolle proposed an algorithm for the mean curvature flow based on a variational problem. Since then, some extensions of his algorithm have been studied.
In this talk we would like to discuss the convergence of the anisotropic variant of his algorithm by use of the anisotropic signed distance function. An application to the approximation for the planar motion by crystalline curvature is also discussed.

Geometry Colloquium

10:00-11:30   Room #122 (Graduate School of Math. Sci. Bldg.)
Yasuyuki Nagatomo (Meiji University)
Harmonic maps into Grassmannian manifolds (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
A harmonic map from a Riemannian manifold into a Grassmannian manifold is characterized by a vector bundle, a space of sections of the bundle and the Laplace operator. This characterization can be considered as a generalization of Theorem of Takahashi on minimal immersions into a sphere (J.Math.Soc.Japan 18 (1966)) and implies the well-known fact that the Kodaira embedding is a harmonic map.

We apply the main result to generalize a Theorem of do Carmo and Wallach (Ann.of Math. 93 (1971)) and describe a moduli space of harmonic maps with constant energy densities and some properties about pull-back bundles and connections from a Riemannian homogeneous space into a Grassmannian. We give some applications including a rigidity of minimal immersions from the complex projective line to complex projective spaces (S.Bando and Y.Ohnita, J. Math. Soc. Japan 39 (1987)).

The ADHM-construction of instantons gives a family of maps into Grassmannians via monad theory on the twistor space. These maps are, in general, not harmonic maps, but are similar to maps obtained in our generalized do Carmo-Wallach theorem. We compare these two constructions of moduli spaces.
