Yoshihiko Matsumoto (University of Tokyo)
The second metric variation of the total $Q$-curvature in conformal geometry (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
Branson's $Q$-curvature of even-dimensional compact conformal manifolds integrates to a global conformal invariant called the total $Q$-curvature. While it is topological in two dimensions and is essentially the Weyl action in four dimensions, in the higher dimensional cases its geometric meaning remains mysterious. Graham and Hirachi have shown that the first metric variation of the total $Q$-curvature coincides with the Fefferman-Graham obstruction tensor. In this talk, the second variational formula will be presented, and it will be made explicit especially for conformally Einstein manifolds. The positivity of the second variation will be discussed in connection with the smallest eigenvalue of the Lichnerowicz Laplacian.

Algebro-geometric characterization of Cayley polytopes (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
A lattice polytope is called a Cayley polytope if it is "small" in some
sense.
In this talk, I will explain an algebro-geometric characterization of
Cayley polytopes
by considering whether or not the corresponding polarized toric
varieties are covered by lines, planes, etc.

We can apply this characterization to the study of Seshadri constants,
which are invariants measuring the positivity of ample line bundles.
That is, we can obtain an explicit description of a polarized toric
variety whose Seshadri constant is one.

Distributional behaviors of time-averaged observables in anomalous diffusions (subdiffusion and superdiffusion) (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
In anomalous diffusions attributed to a power-law distribution,
time-averaged observables such as diffusion coefficient and velocity of drift are intrinsically random. Anomalous diffusion is ubiquitous phenomenon not only in material science but also in biological transports, which is characterized by a non-linear growth of the mean square displacement (MSD).
(subdiffusion: sublinear growth, super diffusion: superlinear growth).
It has been known that there are three different mechanisms generating subdiffusion. One of them is a power-law distribution in the trapping-time distribution. Such anomalous diffusion is modeled by the continuous time random walk (CTRW). In CTRW, the time-averaged MSD grows linearly with time whereas the ensemble-averaged MSD does not. Using renewal theory, I show that diffusion coefficients obtained by single trajectories converge in distribution. The distribution is the Mittag-Leffler (or inverse Levy) distribution [1,2].
In superdiffusion, there are three different mechanisms. One stems from positive correlations in random walks; the second from persistent motions in random walks, called Levy walk; the third from very long jumps in random walks, called Levy flight.
If the persistent time distribution obeys a power law with divergent mean in Levy walks, the MSD grows as t^2 whereas the mean of positions is zero. When an external bias is added in Levy walks, the response to bias (velocity of drift) appears in the distribution, which is what we term a distributional response [3]. The distribution is the generalized arcsine distribution.
These distributional behaviors open a new window to dealing with the average (ensemble or time average) in single particle tracking experiments.

Dylan Thurston (Columbia University)
Combinatorial Heegaard Floer homology (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Heegaard Floer homology is a powerful invariant of 3- and 4-manifolds.
In 4 dimensions, Heegaard Floer homology (together with the
Seiberg-Witten and Donaldson equations, which are conjecturally
equivalent), provides essentially the only technique for
distinguishing smooth 4-manifolds. In 3 dimensions, it provides much
geometric information, like the simplest representatives of a given
homology class.

In this talk we will focus on recent progress in making Heegaard Floer
homology more computable, including a complete algorithm for computing
it for knots.

Takehiko Yasuda (Osaka University)
Motivic integration and wild group actions (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
The cohomological McKay correspondence proved by Batyrev is the equality of an orbifold invariant
and a stringy invariant. The former is an invariant of a smooth variety with a finite group action and the latter is
an invariant of its quotient variety. Denef and Loeser gave an alternative proof of it which uses the motivic integration theory developped by themselves.
Then I pushed forward with their study by generalizing the motivic integration to
Deligne-Mumford stacks and reformulating the cohomological McKay correspondence from the viewpoint of
the birational geometry of stacks.
However all of these are about tame group actions (the order of a group is not divisible by the characteristic of the base field),
and the wild (= not tame) case has remained unexplored.
In this talk, I will explain my attempt to examine the simplest situation of the wild case. Namely linear actions of a cyclic group
of order equal to the characteristic of the base field are treated. A remarkable new phenomenon is that the space of generalized
arcs is a fibration over an infinite dimensional space with infinite dimensional fibers, where the base space is the space of
Artin-Schreier extensions of $k((t))$, the field of Laurent series.

Eriko Hironaka (Florida State University)
Pseudo-Anosov mapping classes with small dilatation (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
A mapping class is a homeomorphism of an oriented surface
to itself modulo isotopy. It is pseudo-Anosov if the lengths of essential
simple closed curves under iterations of the map have exponential growth
rate. The growth rate, an algebraic integer of degree bounded with
respect to the topology of the surface, is called the dilatation of the
mapping class. In this talk we will discuss the minimization problem
for dilatations of pseudo-Anosov mapping classes, and give two general
constructions of pseudo-Anosov mapping classes with small dilatation.

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).

Jens Hoppe (Sogang University / KTH Royal Institute of Technology)
Multi linear formulation of differential geometry and matrix regularizations (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
We prove that many aspects of the differential geometry of embedded Riemannian manifolds can be formulated in terms of multi linear algebraic structures on the space of smooth functions. In particular, we find algebraic expressions for Weingarten's formula, the Ricci curvature and the Codazzi-Mainardi equations.
For matrix analogues of embedded surfaces we define discrete curvatures and Euler characteristics, and a non-commutative Gauss–Bonnet theorem is shown to follow. We derive simple expressions for the discrete Gauss curvature in terms of matrices representing the embedding coordinates, and a large class of explicit examples is provided.
