Algebraic Geometry Seminar

16:40-18:10   Room #126 (Graduate School of Math. Sci. Bldg.)
Prof. Remke Kloosterman (Humboldt University, Berlin)
Non-reduced components of the Noether-Lefschetz locus (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Let $M_d$ be the moduli space of complex smooth degree $d$ surfaces in $\\mathbb{P}3$. Let $NL_d \\subset M_d$ be the subset corresponding to surfaces with Picard number at least 2. It is known that $NL_r$ is Zariski-constructable, and each irreducible component of $NL_r$ has a natural scheme structure. In this talk we describe the largest non-reduced components of $NL_r$. This extends work of Maclean and Otwinowska.
This is joint work with my PhD student Ananyo Dan.

Lectures

09:30-11:00   Room #126 (Graduate School of Math. Sci. Bldg.)
Bernhard Mühlherr (Justus-Liebig-Universität Gießen)
Mini-course on Buildings (1/3) (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
The goal of this course is to provide an overview on the theory of buildings which was developed by Jacques Tits.

In my first lecture I will begin by introducing generalized polygons, namely rank two spherical buildings, and discussing several aspects of them which will be generalized later, and then move on to defining Coxeter complexes and giving the classical definition of buildings as simplicial complexes. I will try to include as many examples as possible.

This is Part 1 of a 3-part lecture. The second lecture will follow after a ten-minute break.

Bernhard Mühlherr (Justus-Liebig-Universität Gießen)
Mini-course on Buildings (2/3) (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
The goal of this course is to provide an overview on the theory of buildings which was developed by Jacques Tits.

In my second lecture I will start with chamber systems and coset
geometries, introducing some special properties of chamber systems in order to give another definition of a building. This definition is less standard but it will give some results on presentations of groups acting on buildings for free. In particular it will enable me to present a sketch of a proof of the Curtis-Tits theorem for Chevalley groups and to formulate Tits' extension theorem.

This is Part 2 of a 3-part lecture. Part 1 takes place ealier on the same day. Part 3 will take place on Thursday, September 9.

Lectures

14:30-15:30   Room #370 (Graduate School of Math. Sci. Bldg.)
Luc Robbiano (University of Versailles)
Carleman estimates and boundary problems. (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
In this presentation, based on joint works with Jerome LeRousseau and Matthieu Leautaud, we consider boundary problems for elliptic/parabolic operators. We prove Carleman estimates in such cases. One of the interest for such an estimate is the implied controllability of (semi-linear) heat equations.

One of the main aspects of the proof is a microlocal decomposition separating high and low tangential frequencies.

If time permits, we will present how such an approach can be used to prove Carleman estimates in the case of non smooth coefficients at an interface, possibly with an additional diffusion process along the interface.

Lie Groups and Representation Theory

16:30-18:00   Room #002 (Graduate School of Math. Sci. Bldg.)
Bernhard M\"uhlherr (Justus-Liebig-Universit\"at Giessen)
Groups of Kac-Moody type (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Groups of Kac-Moody type are natural generalizations of Kac-Moody groups over fields in the sense that they have an RGD-system. This is a system of subgroups indexed by the roots of a root system and satisfying certain commutation relations.
Roughly speaking, there is a one-to-one correspondence between groups of Kac-Moody type and Moufang twin buildings. This correspondence was used in the last decade to prove several group theoretic results on RGD-systems and in particular on Kac-
Moody groups over fields.

In my talk I will explain RGD-systems and how they provide twin
buildings in a natural way. I will then present some of the group theoretic applications mentioned above and describe how twin buildings are used as a main tool in their proof.

Oleg Emanouilov (Colorado State University)
Global uniqueness in determining a coefficient by boundary data on small subboundaries (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
We consider the Dirichlet problem for the stationary two-dimensional Schroedinger equation. We discuss an inverse boundary value problem of determining the potential from a pair of all Dirichlet data supported in a subboundary S+ and all the corresponding Neumann data taken only on a subboundary S-. In the case where S+ = S- are the whole boundary, the data are the classical Dirichlet to Neumann map and there are many uniqueness results, while in the case where S+=S- is an arbitrary subboundary, Imanuvilov-Uhlmann-Yamamoto (2010) proves the uniqueness. In this talk, for the case where S+ and S- are not same, we prove the global uniqueness for this inverse problem under a condition only on the locations of S+, S-. We note that within the condition, S+ and S- can be arbitrarily small. The key of the proof is the construction of suitable complex geometrical optics solutions by a Carleman estimate with singular weight function.

Masahiro Futaki (The University of Tokyo)
Homological Mirror Symmetry for 2-dimensional toric Fano stacks (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
Homological Mirror Symmetry (HMS for short) is a conjectural
duality between complex and symplectic geometry, originally proposed
for mirror pairs of Calabi-Yau manifolds and later extended to
Fano/Landau-Ginzburg mirrors (both due to Kontsevich, 1994 and 1998).

We explain how HMS is established in the case of 2-dimensional smooth
toric Fano stack X as an equivalence between the derived category of X
and the derived directed Fukaya category of its mirror Lefschetz
fibration W. This is related to Kontsevich-Soibelman's construction of
3d CY category from the quiver with potential.

We also obtain a local mirror extension following Seidel's suspension
theorem, that is, the local HMS for the canonical bundle K_X and the
double suspension W+uv. This talk is joint with Kazushi Ueda (Osaka
U.).

Ayumu Inoue (Tokyo Institute of Technology)
Quandle homology and complex volume
(Joint work with Yuichi Kabaya) (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
For a hyperbolic 3-manifold M, the complex value (Vol(M) + i CS(M)) is called the complex volume of M. Here, Vol(M) denotes the volume of M, and CS(M) the Chern-Simons invariant of M.
In 2004, Neumann defined the extended Bloch group, and showed that there is an element of the extended Bloch group corresponding to a hyperbolic 3-manifold.
He further showed that we can compute the complex volume of the manifold by evaluating the element of the extended Bloch group.
To obtain an element of the extended Bloch group corresponding to a hyperbolic 3-manifold, we have to find an ideal triangulation of the manifold and to solve several equations.
On the other hand, we show that the element of the extended Bloch group corresponding to the exterior of a hyperbolic link is obtained from a quandle shadow coloring.
It means that we can compute the complex volume combinatorially from a link diagram.

$W^*$ Rigidity for actions of wreath product groups (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
The past 8 years have seen much progress in the classification of
actions of groups on measure spaces. Much of this is due to new powerful
techniques in operator algebras. We will survey some of these results
as well as the new operator algebra techniques. We will then give new
results concerning the classification of actions of wreath product groups.

Keiko Kawamuro (University of Iowa)
A polynomial invariant of pseudo-Anosov maps (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
Thurston-Nielsen classified surface homomorphism into three classes. Among them, the pseudo-Anosov class is the most interesting since there is strong connection to the hyperbolic manifolds. As an invariant, the dilatation number has been known. In this talk, I will introduce a new invariant of pseudo-Anosov maps. It is an integer coefficient polynomial, which contains the dilatation as the largest real root and is often reducible. I will show properties of the polynomials, examples, and some application to knot theory. (This is a joint work with Joan Birman and Peter Brinkmann.)

Mighty convergence in LAD type estimation (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
We propose a LAD (least absolute deviation) type contrast function for estimating Levy driven Ornstein-Uhlenbeck processes sampled at high frequency. The asymptotic behavior and polynomial-type large deviation inequality concerning the statistical random fields in question are derived, entailing an asymptotic normality and convergence of moments of the LAD estimator. Also, we will mention some numerical experiments done by the R software and some possible extensions of the framework.

Marion Moore (University of California, Davis)
High Distance Knots in closed 3-manifolds (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Let M be a closed 3-manifold with a given Heegaard splitting.
We show that after a single stabilization, some core of the
stabilized splitting has arbitrarily high distance with respect
to the splitting surface. This generalizes a result of Minsky,
Moriah, and Schleimer for knots in S^3. We also show that in the
complex of curves, handlebody sets are either coarsely distinct
or identical. We define the coarse mapping class group of a
Heeegaard splitting, and show that if (S,V,W) is a Heegaard
splitting of genus greater than or equal to 2, then the coarse
mapping class group of (S,V,W) is isomorphic to the mapping class
group of (S, V, W). This is joint work with Matt Rathbun.

On a limiting eigenvalue distribution theorem for perturbations of the hydrogen atom (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
Let H be the hydrogen atom Hamiltonian. We will show that
the operator H+P can have well defined clusters of eigenvalues
for a suitable perturbation P=f(h)Q where Q is a pseudo-differential
operator of order zero and f(h) is a small quantity depending of
the Planck's parameter h. We will show that the distribution of
eigenvalues in those clusters has a semi-classical limit involving
the averages of the principal symbol of Q along the classical orbits
of the Kepler problem.
