Elijah Liflyand (Bar-Ilan University, Israel)
Fourier transform versus Hilbert transform (English)
[ Abstract ]
We present several results in which the interplay between the Fourier transform and the Hilbert transform is of special form and importance.
1. In 50-s (Kahane, Izumi-Tsuchikura, Boas, etc.), the following problem in Fourier Analysis attracted much attention: Let $\{a_k\},$ $k=0,1,2...,$ be the sequence of the Fourier coefficients of the absolutely convergent sine (cosine) Fourier series of a function $f:\mathbb T=[-\pi,\pi)\to \mathbb C,$ that is $\sum |a_k|<\infty.$ Under which conditions on $\{a_k\}$ the re-expansion of $f(t)$ ($f(t)-f(0)$, respectively) in the cosine (sine) Fourier series will also be absolutely convergent?
We solve a similar problem for functions on the whole axis and their Fourier transforms. Generally, the re-expansion of a function with integrable cosine (sine) Fourier transform in the sine (cosine) Fourier transform is integrable if and only if not only the initial Fourier transform is integrable but also the Hilbert transform of the initial Fourier transform is integrable.
2. The following result is due to Hardy and Littlewood: If a (periodic) function $f$ and its conjugate $\widetilde f$ are both of bounded variation, their Fourier series converge absolutely.
We generalize the Hardy-Littlewood theorem (joint work with U. Stadtmüller) to the Fourier transform of a function on the real axis and its modified Hilbert transform. The initial Hardy-Littlewood theorem is a partial case of this extension, when the function is taken to be with compact support.
3. These and other problems are integrated parts of harmonic analysis of functions of bounded variation. We have found the maximal space for the integrability of the Fourier transform of a function of bounded variation. Along with those known earlier, various interesting new spaces appear in this study. Their inter-relations lead, in particular, to improvements of Hardy's inequality.
There are multidimensional generalizations of these results.

Arithmetic topology on branched covers of 3-manifolds (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
The analogy between 3-dimensional topology and number theory was first pointed out by Mazur in the 1960s, and it has been studied systematically by Kapranov, Reznikov, Morishita, and others. In their analogies, for example, knots and 3-manifolds correspond to primes and number rings respectively. The study of these analogies is called arithmetic topology now.
In my talk, based on their dictionary of analogies, we study analogues of idelic class field theory, Iwasawa theory, and Galois deformation theory in the context of 3-dimensional topology, and establish various foundational analogies in arithmetic topology.

LAMN property and optimal estimation for diffusion with non synchronous observations
[ Abstract ]
We study so-called local asymptotic mixed normality (LAMN) property for a statistical model generated by nonsynchronously observed diffusion processes using a Malliavin calculus technique. The LAMN property of the statistical model induces an asymptotic minimal variance of estimation errors for any estimators of the parameter. We also construct an optimal estimator which attains the best asymptotic variance.

Stochastic heat equation with fractional noise 1
[ Abstract ]
In the first part, we introduce the bifractional Brownian motion, which is a Gaussian process that generalizes the well- known fractional Brownian motion. We present the basic properties of this process and we also present its connection with the mild solution to the heat equation driven by a Gaussian noise that behaves as the Brownian motion in time.

Delayed Models of Cancer Dynamics: Lessons Learned in Mathematical Modelling (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
In general, delay differential equations provide a richer mathematical
framework (compared with ordinary differential equations) for the
analysis of biosystems dynamics. The inclusion of explicit time lags in
tumor growth models allows direct reference to experimentally measurable
and/or controllable cell growth characteristics. For three different
types of angiogenesis models with variable delays, we consider either
continuous or impulse therapy that eradicates tumor cells and suppresses
angiogenesis. It was shown that with the growth of delays, even
constant, the equilibrium can lose its stability, and sustainable
oscillation, as well as chaotic behavior, can be observed. The analysis
outlines the difficulties which occur in the case of unbounded growth
rates, such as classical Gompertz model, for small volumes of cancer
cells compared to available blood vessels. The Wheldon model (1975) of a
Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia (CML) dynamics is revisited in the light of
recent discovery that this model has a major drawback.

Equivalence between the convergence in total variation and that of the Stein factor to the invariant measures of diffusion processes

[ Abstract ]
We consider the characterization of the convergence of distributions to a given distribution in a certain class by using Stein's equation and Malliavin calculus with respect to the invariant measures of one-dimensional diffusion processes. Precisely speaking, we obtain an estimate between the so-called Stein factor and the total variation norm, and the equivalence between the convergence of the distributions in total variation and that of the Stein factor. This talk is based on the joint work with C.A.Tudor (arXiv:1310.3785).

Asymptotic expansion and estimation of volatility
[ Abstract ]
Parametric estimation of volatility of an Ito process in a finite time horizon is discussed. Asymptotic expansion of the error distribution will be presented for the quasi likelihood estimators, i.e., quasi MLE, quasi Bayesian estimator and one-step quasi MLE. Statistics becomes non-ergodic, where the limit distribution is mixed normal. Asymptotic expansion is a basic tool in various areas in the traditional ergodic statistics such as higher order asymptotic decision theory, bootstrap and resampling plans, prediction theory, information criterion for model selection, information geometry, etc. Then a natural question is to obtain asymptotic expansion in the non-ergodic statistics. However, due to randomness of the characteristics of the limit, the classical martingale expansion or the mixing method cannot not apply. Recently a new martingale expansion was developed and applied to a quadratic form of the Ito process. The higher order terms are characterized by the adaptive random symbol and the anticipative random symbol. The Malliavin calculus is used for the description of the anticipative random symbols as well as for obtaining a decay of the characteristic functions. In this talk, the martingale expansion method and the quasi likelihood analysis with a polynomial type large deviation estimate of the quasi likelihood random field collaborate to derive expansions for the quasi likelihood estimators. Expansions of the realized volatility under microstructure noise, the power variation and the error of Euler-Maruyama scheme are recent applications. Further, some extension of martingale expansion to general martingales will be mentioned. References: SPA2013, arXiv:1212.5845, AISM2011, arXiv:1309.2071 (to appear in AAP), arXiv:1512.04716.

Spectral convergence under bounded Ricci curvature (Japanese)
[ Abstract ]
For a noncollapsed Gromov-Hausdorff convergent sequence of Riemannian manifolds with a uniform bound of Ricci curvature, we establish two spectral convergence. One of them is on the Hodge Laplacian acting on differential one-forms. The other is on the connection Laplacian acting on tensor fields of every type, which include all differential forms. These are sharp generalizations of Cheeger-Colding's spectral convergence of the Laplacian acting on functions to the cases of tensor fields and differential forms. These spectral convergence have two direct corollaries. One of them is to give new bounds on such eigenvalues, in terms of bounds on volume, diameter and the Ricci curvature. The other is that we show the upper semicontinuity of the first Betti numbers with respect to the Gromov-Hausdorff topology, and give the equivalence between the continuity of them and the existence of a uniform spectral gap. On the other hand we also define measurable curvature tensors of the noncollapsed Gromov-Hausdorff limit space of a sequence of Riemannian manifolds with a uniform bound of Ricci curvature, which include Riemannian curvature tensor, the Ricci curvature, and the scalar curvature. As fundamental properties of our Ricci curvature, we show that the Ricci curvature coincides with the difference between the Hodge Laplacian and the connection Laplacian, and is compatible with Gigli's one and Lott's Ricci measure. Moreover we prove a lower bound of the Ricci curvature is compatible with a reduced Riemannian curvature dimension condition. We also give a positive answer to Lott's question on the behavior of the scalar curvature with respect to the Gromov-Hausdorff topology by using our scalar curvature. This talk is based on arXiv:1510.05349.

Isomorphic quartic K3 surfaces and Cremona transformations (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
We show that

(i) there is a pair of smooth complex quartic K3 surfaces such that they are isomorphic as abstract varieties but not Cremona equivalent.

(ii) there is a pair of smooth complex quartic K3 surfaces such that they are Cemona equivalent but not projectively equivalent.

These two results are much inspired by e-mails from Professors Tuyen Truong and J\'anos Koll\'ar.
