Generic vanishing and linearity via Hodge modules (ENGLISH)

**Mihnea Popa**(University of Illinois at Chicago)Generic vanishing and linearity via Hodge modules (ENGLISH)

[ Abstract ]

I will explain joint work with Christian Schnell, in which we extend the fundamental results of generic vanishing theory (for instance for the canonical bundle of a smooth projective variety) to bundles of holomorphic forms and to rank one local systems, where parts of the theory have eluded previous efforts. To achiever this, we bring all of the old and new results under the same roof by enlarging the scope of generic vanishing theory to the study of filtered D-modules associated to mixed Hodge modules. Besides Saito's vanishing and direct image theorems for Hodge modules, an important input is the Laumon-Rothstein Fourier transform for bundles with integrable connection.

**Harald Niederreiter**(RICAM, Austrian Academy of Sciences)Low-discrepancy sequences and algebraic curves over finite fields (I) (ENGLISH)

[ Abstract ]

This is the second of the four lectures. The first one is Colloquium talk on May 25th 16:30--17:30 at 002.

Abstract from Colloquium:

Quasi-Monte Carlo (QMC) methods are deterministic analogs of statistical Monte Carlo

methods in computational mathematics. QMC methods employ evenly distributed

low-discrepancy sequences instead of the random samples used in Monte Carlo methods.

For many types of computational problems, QMC methods are more efficient than

Monte Carlo methods. After a general introduction to QMC methods, the talk focuses

on the problem of constructing low-discrepancy sequences which has fascinating links

with subjects such as finite fields, error-correcting codes, and algebraic curves.

The Takagi function - a survey (JAPANESE)

Dyadic, classical and martingale harmonic analysis II (JAPANESE)

**Kiko Kawamura**(University of North Texas) 13:30-15:00The Takagi function - a survey (JAPANESE)

[ Abstract ]

More than a century has passed since Takagi published his simple example of a continuous but nowhere differentiable function,

yet Takagi's function -- as it is now commonly referred

to despite repeated rediscovery

by mathematicians in the West -- continues to inspire, fascinate and puzzle researchers as never before.

In this talk, I will give not only an overview of the history and known characteristics of the function,

but also discuss some of the fascinating applications it has found -- some quite recently! -- in such diverse areas of mathematics as number theory, combinatorics, and analysis.

**Yutaka Terasawa**(The University of Tokyo) 15:30-17:00Dyadic, classical and martingale harmonic analysis II (JAPANESE)

[ Abstract ]

In a filtered measure space, we investigate the characterization of weights for which positive operators and maximal operators are bounded.

For this, a refinement of Carleson embedding theorem is introduced in this setting. Sawyer type characterization of weights for which a two-weight norm inequality for a generalized Doob's maximal operator holds is established by an application of our Carleson embedding theorem. If time permits, we would like to mention Hyt\\"onen-P\\'erez type sharp one-weight estimate of Doob's

maximal operator which is derived from our two-weight characterization.

This talk is based on a joint work with Professor Hitoshi Tanaka

(The University of Tokyo).

$L^p$ Estimates of the Vector Fields and their Applications (ENGLISH)

[ Abstract ]

For $1< p < \\infty$, the estimates of $W^{1,p}$ norm of the vector fields in bounded domains in $\\mathbb R^3$ in terms of their divergence and curl have been well studied. In this talk, we shall present the $L^{{3}/{2}}$ estimates of vector fields with the $L^1$ norm of the $\\curl$ in bounded domains. By a similar discussion, we establish the $L^p$ estimates of the vector fields for $1 < p < \\infty$. As an application of the $L^p$ estimates, the Global $\\dv-\\curl$ lemma in Sobolev spaces of negative indices is given.

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.

Viscosity solutions for nonlinear elliptic-parabolic problems (ENGLISH)

**Norbert Pozar**(Graduate School of Mathematical Sciences, The University of Tokyo)Viscosity solutions for nonlinear elliptic-parabolic problems (ENGLISH)

[ Abstract ]

We introduce a notion of viscosity solutions for a general class of

elliptic-parabolic phase transition problems. These include the

Richards equation, which is a classical model in filtration theory.

Existence and uniqueness results are proved via the comparison

principle. In particular, we show existence and stability properties

of maximal and minimal viscosity solutions for a general class of

initial data. These results are new even in the linear case, where we

also show that viscosity solutions coincide with the regular weak

solutions introduced in [Alt&Luckhaus 1983]. This talk is based on a

recent work with Inwon Kim.

Gamma Integral Structure in Gromov-Witten theory (JAPANESE)

**Hiroshi Iritani**(Kyoto University)Gamma Integral Structure in Gromov-Witten theory (JAPANESE)

[ Abstract ]

The quantum cohomology of a symplectic

manifold undelies a certain integral local system

defined by the Gamma characteristic class.

This local system originates from the natural integral

local sysmem on the B-side under mirror symmetry.

In this talk, I will explain its relationships to the problem

of analytic continuation of Gromov-Witten theoy (potentials),

including crepant resolution conjecture, LG/CY correspondence,

modularity in higher genus theory.

Characterizations of projective spaces and hyperquadrics

(JAPANESE)

**Taku Suzuki**(Waseda University)Characterizations of projective spaces and hyperquadrics

(JAPANESE)

[ Abstract ]

After Mori's works on Hartshorne's conjecture, many results to

characterize projective spaces and hyperquadrics in terms of

positivity properties of the tangent bundle have been provided.

Kov\\'acs' conjecture states that smooth complex projective

varieties are projective spaces or hyperquadrics if the $p$-th

exterior product of their tangent bundle contains the $p$-th

exterior product of an ample vector bundle. This conjecture is

the generalization of many preceding results. In this talk, I will

explain the idea of the proof of Kov\\'acs' conjecture for varieties

with Picard number one by using a method of slope-stabilities

of sheaves.

Topological Strings on Elliptic Fibrations (ENGLISH)

[ Abstract ]

We will explain a conjecture that expresses the BPS invariants

(Gopakumar-Vafa invariants) for elliptically fibered Calabi-Yau

threefolds in terms of modular forms. In particular, there is a

recursion relation which governs these modular forms. Evidence comes

from the polynomial formulation of the higher genus topological string

amplitudes with insertions.

On uniform bound of the maximal subgroup of the inertia group acting unipotently on $¥ell$-adic cohomology (JAPANESE)

**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 $X$.

Strichartz estimates for Schr\\"odinger equations with variable coefficients and unbounded electromagnetic potentials (JAPANESE)

**MIZUTANI, Haruya**(Research Institute for Mathematical Sciences, Kyoto University)Strichartz estimates for Schr\\"odinger equations with variable coefficients and unbounded electromagnetic potentials (JAPANESE)

[ Abstract ]

In this talk we consider the Cauchy problem for Schr\\"odinger equations with variable coefficients and unbounded potentials. Under the assumption that the Hamiltonian is a long-range perturbation of the free Schr\\"odinger operator, we construct an outgoing parametrix for the propagator near infinity, and give applications to sharp Strichartz estimates. The basic idea is to combine the standard approximation by using a time dependent modifier, which is not in the semiclassical regime, with the semiclassical approximation of Isozaki-Kitada type. We also show near sharp Strichartz estimates without asymptotic conditions by using local smoothing effects.

Efficient Discretization of Stochastic Integrals (JAPANESE)

https://www.ms.u-tokyo.ac.jp/~kengok/statseminar/2012/03.html

**FUKASAWA, Masaaki**(Department of Mathematics, Osaka University)Efficient Discretization of Stochastic Integrals (JAPANESE)

[ Abstract ]

Sharp asymptotic lower bounds of the expected quadratic variation of discretization error in stochastic integration are given. The theory relies on inequalities for the kurtosis and skewness of a general random variable which are themselves seemingly new. Asymptotically efficient schemes which attain the lower bounds are constructed explicitly. The result is directly applicable to practical hedging problem in mathematical finance; it gives an asymptotically optimal way to choose rebalancing dates and portofolios with respect to transaction costs. The asymptotically efficient strategies in fact reflect the structure of transaction costs. In particular a specific biased rebalancing scheme is shown to be superior to unbiased schemes if transaction costs follow a convex model. The problem is discussed also in terms of the exponential utility maximization.

Infinite examples of non-Garside monoids having fundamental elements (JAPANESE)

**Tadashi Ishibe**(The University of Tokyo, JSPS)Infinite examples of non-Garside monoids having fundamental elements (JAPANESE)

[ Abstract ]

The Garside group, as a generalization of Artin groups,

is defined as the group of fractions of a Garside monoid.

To understand the elliptic Artin groups, which are the fundamental

groups of the complement of discriminant divisors of the semi-versal

deformation of the simply elliptic singularities E_6~, E_7~ and E_8~,

we need to consider another generalization of Artin groups.

In this talk, we will study the presentations of fundamental groups

of the complement of complexified real affine line arrangements

and consider the associated monoids.

It turns out that, in some cases, they are not Garside monoids.

Nevertheless, we will show that they satisfy the cancellation condition

and carry certain particular elements similar to the fundamental elements

in Artin monoids.

As a result, we will show that the word problem can be solved

and the center of them are determined.

The second metric variation of the total $Q$-curvature in conformal geometry (JAPANESE)

**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.
