Kazuhiro Ito (The University of Tokyo, Kavli IPMU)
G-displays over prisms and deformation theory (Japanese)
[ Abstract ]
The notion of display, which was introduced by Zink, has been successfully applied to the deformation theory of p-divisible groups. Recently, for a reductive group G over the ring of p-adic integers, Lau introduced the notion of G-display. In this talk, following the approach of Lau, we study displays and G-displays over the prismatic site of Bhatt-Scholze, and explain the deformation theory for them. As an application, we give an alternative proof of the classification of p-divisible groups over a complete discrete valuation ring of mixed characteristic (0, p) with perfect residue field, using our deformation theory.

Hsueh-Yung Lin (NTU)
Towards a geometric origin of the dynamical filtrations (English)
[ Abstract ]
Let X be a smooth projective variety with an automorphism f. When X is a threefold, Serge Cantat asked whether X has a non-trivial equivariant rational fibration, if the action of f on the Néron-Severi space is non-trivial and unipotent. We will propose a precise conjecture related to Cantat's question for minimal varieties in arbitrary dimension, in light of the "dynamical filtrations" arising in the study of zero entropy group actions. This conjecture also suggests a geometric origin of dynamical filtrations, whose definition is purely cohomological. We will provide some heuristic evidence from the relative abundance conjecture.
If time permits, we will also explain how the study of dynamical filtrations leads to new results about solvable group actions, which are not necessarily of zero entropy.

Takumi Murayama (Purdue)
The relative minimal model program for excellent algebraic spaces and analytic spaces in equal characteristic zero (English)
[ Abstract ]
In 2010, Birkar, Cascini, Hacon, and McKernan proved a relative version of the minimal model program for projective morphisms of complex quasi-projective varieties, called the relative minimal model program with scaling. Their result is now fundamental to our understanding of the birational classification of quasi-projective varieties and has numerous applications.
In this talk, I will discuss recent joint work with Shiji Lyu that establishes the relative minimal model program with scaling for excellent schemes, excellent algebraic spaces, and analytic spaces simultaneously in equal characteristic zero. This not only recovers previous results for complex varieties, complex algebraic spaces, and complex analytic spaces, but also greatly extends the scope of the relative minimal model program with scaling to a broader class of geometric spaces, including formal schemes, rigid analytic spaces, and Berkovich spaces, all in equal characteristic zero. Our results for (non-algebraic) schemes and rigid analytic spaces were previously only known in dimensions ≤3 and ≤2, respectively, and our results for formal schemes and Berkovich spaces are completely new.

A commentary on J. Boman's recent two related results about the support of a distribution and its analyticity, and a special relationship between Radon transformations and ellipsoidal regions (Japanese)
[ Abstract ]
Jan Boman's (Stockholm Univ.) recent two papers:
[1], Regularity of a distribution and of the boundary of its support, The Journal of Geometric Analysis vol.32, Article number: 300 (2022).
[2], A hypersurface containing the support of a Radon transform must be an ellipsoid. II: The general case; J. Inverse Ill-Posed Probl. 2021; 29(3): 351–367.
In [1] he proved "Let $f(x_1,…,x_n,y)$ be a non-zero distribution with support in a $C^1$ surface $N=\{y=F(x)\}$. If $f(x,y)$ is depending real analytically on x-variables, then $F(x)$ is analytic". As an application, he reinforced the main result of [2]. These results are obtained essentially by means of matrix algebra and a number theoretic method.

Yosuke Kubota (Shinshu Univ.)
Band width and the Rosenberg index
[ Abstract ]
Band width is a concept recently proposed by Gromov. It is based on the idea that when a certain band (i.e., manifold with two boundaries) is openly immersed to a target manifold M with positive scalar curvature metric, then its width is bounded by a uniform constant called the band width of M. A qualitative consequence is that infiniteness of the band width of M obstructs to positive scalar curvature.
In this talk, infiniteness of a version of the band width, Zeidler's KO-band width, is dominated as a PSC obstruction by an existing obstruction, the Rosenberg index. This answers to a conjecture by Zeidler.

Moduli of G-constellations and crepant resolutions (日本語)
[ Abstract ]
For a finite subgroup G of SL_n(C), a moduli space of G-constellations is a generalization of the G-Hilbert scheme and is important from the viewpoint of McKay correspondence. In this talk I will explain its basic properties and show that every projective crepant resolution of C^3/G is isomorphic to such a moduli space.

Spectral convergence in geometric quantization on K3 surfaces (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
In this talk I will explain the geometric quantization on K3 surfaces from the viewpoint of the spectral convergence. We take a special Lagrangian fibrations on the K3 surfaces and a family of hyper-Kähler structures tending to large complex structure limit and show a spectral convergence of the d-bar-Laplacians on the prequantum line bundle to the spectral structure related to the set of Bohr-Sommerfeld fibers.

Continuum limit problem of discrete Schrödinger operators on square lattices (Japanese)
[ Abstract ]
We consider discrete Schrödinger operators on the square lattice with its mesh size very small. The aim of this talk is to introduce the rigorous setting of continuum limit problems in the view point of operator theory and then to give its proof for the above operators, the one of which is defined on the vertices and the other of which is defined on the edges. This talk is based on joint works with Shu Nakamura (Gakushuin University) and Pavel Exner (Czech Academy of Science, Czech Technical University).

$L^2$-extension index and its applications (Japanese)
[ Abstract ]
In this talk, we introduce a new concept of $L^2$-extension indices. By using this notion, we propose a new way to study the positivity of curvature. We prove that there is an equivalence between how sharp the $L^2$-extension is and how positive the curvature is. As applications, we study Prekopa-type theorems and the positivity of a certain direct image sheaf.

Quentin Faes (The Univesity of Tokyo)
Torsion in the abelianization of the Johnson kernel (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
The Johnson kernel is the subgroup of the mapping class group of a closed oriented surface that is generated by Dehn twists along separating simple closed curves, and is also the second term of the so-called Johnson filtration of the mapping class group. The rational abelianization of this group is known, but it was recently proved by Nozaki, Sato and Suzuki, that the abelianization has torsion. They used the LMO homomorphism. In this talk, I will explain a purely two-dimensional proof of this result, which provides a lower bound for the cardinality of the torsion part of the abelianization. These results are also valid for the case of an open surface. This is joint work with Gwénaël Massuyeau.

On sharper estimates of Ohsawa--Takegoshi $L^2$-extension theorem in higher dimensional case (Japanese)

Hosono proposed an idea of getting an $L^2$-estimate sharper than the one of Berndtsson--Lempert type $L^2$-extension theorem by allowing constants depending on weight functions in $\mathbb{C}$.

In this talk, I explain the details of "sharper estimates" and the higher dimensional case of it. Also, I explain my recent studies related to it.

A binary branching model with Moran-type interactions (English)
[ Abstract ]
Branching processes naturally arise as pertinent models in a variety of applications such as population size dynamics, neutron transport and cell proliferation kinetics. A key result for understanding the behaviour of such systems is the Perron Frobenius decomposition, which allows one to characterise the large time average behaviour of the branching process via its leading eigenvalue and corresponding left and right eigenfunctions. However, obtaining estimates of these quantities can be challenging, for example when the branching process is spatially dependent with inhomogeneous rates. In this talk, I will introduce a new interacting particle model that combines the natural branching behaviour of the underlying process with a selection and resampling mechanism, which allows one to maintain some control over the system and more efficiently estimate the eigenelements. I will then present the main result, which provides an explicit relation between the particle system and the branching process via a many-to-one formula and also quantifies the L^2 distance between the occupation measures of the two systems. Finally, I will discuss some examples in order to illustrate the scope and possible extensions of the model, and to provide some comparisons with the Fleming Viot interacting particle system. This is based on work with Alex Cox (University of Bath) and Denis Villemonais (Université de Lorraine).

Xinyao Zhang (University of Tokyo)
The modularity of elliptic curves over some number fields (English)
[ Abstract ]
As a non-trivial case of the Langlands reciprocity conjecture, the modularity of elliptic curves always intrigues number theorists, and a famous result was proved for semistable elliptic curves over \mathbb{Q} by Andrew Wiles, implying Fermat's Last Theorem. In recent years, many new results have been proved using sufficiently powerful modularity lifting theorems. For instance, Thorne proved that elliptic curves over the cyclotomic \mathbb{Z}_p-extension of \mathbb{Q} are modular. In this talk, I will sketch some of these results and try to give a new one that elliptic curves over the cyclotomic \mathbb{Z}_p-extension of a real quadratic field are modular under some technical assumptions.

Mikhail Bershtein (Skoltech・HSE / IPMU)
Folding transformations for q-Painleve equations (English)
[ Abstract ]
Folding transformation of the Painleve equations is an algebraic (of degree greater than 1) transformation between solutions of different equations. In 2005 Tsuda, Okamoto and Sakai classified folding transformations of differential Painleve equations. These transformations are in correspondence with automorphisms of affine Dynkin diagrams. We give a complete classification of folding transformations of the q-difference Painleve equations, these transformations are in correspondence with certain subdiagrams of the affine Dynkin diagrams (possibly with automorphism). The method is based on Sakai's approach to Painleve equations through rational surfaces.

Bernstein type theorem for the parabolic 2-Hessian equation under weaker assumptions (Japanese)
[ Abstract ]
In the early twentieth century, Bernstein proved that a minimal surface which can be expressed as the graph of a function defined in $\mathbb{R}^2$ must be a plane. For Monge-Ampère equation, it is known that a convex solution to $\det D^2 u=1$ in $\mathbb{R}^n$ must be a quadratic polynomial. Such kind of theorems, which we call Bernstein type theorems in this talk, have been extensively studied for various PDEs. For the parabolic $k$-Hessian equation, Bernstein type theorem has been proved by Nakamori and Takimoto (2015, 2016) under the convexity and some growth assumptions on the solution. In this talk, we shall obtain Bernstein type theorem for the parabolic 2-Hessian equation under weaker assumptions.

Shintaro Kuroki (Okayama University of Science)
GKM graph with legs and graph equivariant cohomology (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
A GKM (Goresky-Kottiwicz-MacPherson) graph is a regular graph labeled on edges with some conditions. This notion has been introduced by Guillemin-Zara in 2001 to study the geometry of a nice class of manifolds with torus actions, called a GKM manifold, by a combinatorial way. In particular, we can define a ring on a GKM graph called a graph equivariant cohomology, and it is often isomorphic to the equivariant cohomology of a GKM manifold. In this talk, we introduce the GKM graph with legs (i.e., non-compact edges) related to non-compact manifolds with torus actions that may not satisfy the usual GKM conditions, and study the graph equivariant cohomology which is related to the GKM graph with legs. The talk is mainly based on the joint work with Grigory Solomadin (arXiv:2207.11380) and partially on the joint work with Vikraman Uma (arXiv:2106.11598).

The behaviour of Kahler-Einstein polygons under combinatorial mutation
(English)
[ Abstract ]
Combinatorial mutations play an important role in the mirror symmetry approach to the classification of Fano varieties. Another important notion for Fano varieties is that of K-polystability, which turns out to have a nice combinatorial characterisation in the toric case. In this talk, I will give an overview of how mutations work and sketch the key ideas used to explore its interaction with Kahler-Einstein polygons (i.e. the Fano polygons whose associated toric variety is K-polystable).
