Alfred RAMANI (École polytechnique)
Integrable discrete systems, an introduction Pt. 2 (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
The second part will mostly be devoted to the various integrability detectors (singularity confinement, algebraic entropy) for integrability of discrete systems, in one or more dimensions. The most important systems identified through these detectors, namely the discrete Painlev¥'e equations, will be presented in detail, through a geometric approach.

On the homotopy exact sequence for the logarithmic de Rham fundamental group (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Let K be a field of characteristic 0 and let X* be a quasi-projective simple normal crossing log variety over the log point K* associated to K. We construct a log de Rham version of the homotopy sequence \\pi_1(X*/K*)-->\\pi_1(X*/K)--\\pi_1(K*/K)-->1 and prove that it is exact. Moreover we show the injectivity of the first map for certain quotients of the groups. Our proofs are purely algebraic. This is a joint work with A. Shiho.

Inverse spectral problem for positive Hankel operators (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Hankel operators are given by (infinite) matrices with entries
$a_{n+m}$ in $\\ell^2$. We consider inverse spectral problem
for bounded self-adjoint positive Hankel operators.
A famous theorem due to Megretskii, Peller and Treil asserts
that such operators may have any continuous spectrum of
multiplicity one or two and any set of eigenvalues of multiplicity
one. However, more detailed questions of inverse spectral
problem, such as the description of isospectral sets, have never
been addressed. In this talk I will describe in detail the
direct and inverse spectral problem for a particular sub-class
of positive Hankel operators. The talk is based on joint work
with Patrick Gerard (Paris, Orsay).

Exact Results In Two-Dimensional (2,2) Supersymmetric Gauge Theories With Boundary
[ Abstract ]
I will talk about the recent computation, done in joint work with Prof. K. Hori, of the partition function on the hemisphere of a class of two-dimensional (2,2) supersymmetric field theories including gauged linear sigma models (GLSM). The result provides a general exact formula for the central charge of the D-branes placed at the boundary. From the mathematical point of view, for the case of GLSMs that admit a geometrical interpretation, this formula provides an expression for the central charge of objects in the derived category at any point of the stringy Kahler moduli space. I will describe how this formula arises from physics and give simple, yet important, examples that supports its validity. If time allows, I will also explain some of its consequences such as how it can be used to obtain the grade restriction rule for branes near phase boundaries.

Pair correlation of low lying zeros of quadratic L-functions (JAPANESE)

sigam function and space curves (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
In this talk, I show that Kleinian sigma function, which is a generalization of Weierstrass elliptic sigma function, is extended to space curves, (3,4,5), (3,7,8) and (6,13,14,15,16) type. In terms of the function, the Jacobi inversion formula is also generalized, in which the affine coordinates are given as functions of strata of Jacobi variety associated with these curves.

Besov and Triebel-Lizorkin spaces associated with
non-negative self-adjoint operators
[ Abstract ]
Let $(X,d)$ be a locally compact metric space
endowed with a doubling measure $¥mu$, and
let $L$ be a non-negative self-adjoint operator on $L^{2}(X,d¥mu)$.
Assume that the semigroup
generated by $L$ consists of integral operators with (heat) kernel
enjoying Gaussian upper bound but having no information on the
regularity in the variables $x$ and $y$.
In this talk, we shall introduce Besov and Triebel-Lizorkin spaces associated
with $L$, and
present an atomic decomposition of these function spaces.

Hiroshige Kajiura (Chiba University)
Homological mirror symmetry of torus fibrations and some deformations (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
We consider pairs of symplectic torus fibrations equipped with foliation structures and noncommutative deformations of complex torus fibrations as some deformations of the formulation of mirror symmetry via torus fibrations by Strominger-Yau-Zaslow. In order to assert that these pairs are mirror dual pairs, we consider homological mirror symmetry. Namely, we define deformations of Fukaya categories on symplectic torus fibrations and deformations of derived categories on complex torus fibrations, and discuss some equivalences between them. (What are known to hold true for non-deformed setting hold true, too, for the deformed setting. )

Danielle Hilhorst (Université de Paris-Sud / CNRS)
Singular limit of a damped wave equation with a bistable nonlinearity (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
We study the singular limit of a damped wave equation with
a bistable nonlinearity. In order to understand interfacial
phenomena, we derive estimates for the generation and the motion
of interfaces. We prove that steep interfaces are generated in
a short time and that their motion is governed by mean curvature
flow under the assumption that the damping is sufficiently strong.
To this purpose, we prove a comparison principle for the damped
wave equation and construct suitable sub- and super-solutions.

This is joint work with Mitsunori Nata.

Mark Wilkinson (École normale supérieure - Paris)
Eigenvalue Constraints and Regularity of Q-tensor Navier-Stokes Dynamics (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
The Q-tensor is a traceless and symmetric 3x3 matrix that describes the small-scale structure in nematic liquid crystals. In order to be physically meaningful, its eigenvalues should be bounded below by -1/3 and above by 2/3. This constraint raises questions regarding the physical predictions of theories which employ the Q-tensor; it also raises analytical issues in both static and dynamic Q-tensor theories of nematic liquid crystals. John Ball and Apala Majumdar recently constructed a singular map on traceless, symmetric matrices that penalises unphysical Q-tensors by giving them an infinite energy cost. In this talk, I shall present some mathematical results for a coupled Navier-Stokes system modelling nematic dynamics into which this map is built, including the existence, regularity and so-called `strict physicality' of its weak solutions.

Yichao Tian (Morningside Center for Mathematics)
Goren-Oort stratification and Tate cycles on Hilbert modular varieties (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Let B be a quaternionic algebra over a totally real field F, and p be a prime at least 3 unramified in F. We consider a Shimura variety X associated to B^* of level prime to p. A generalization of Deligne-Carayol's "modèle étrange" allows us to define an integral model for X. We will then define a Goren-Oort stratification on the characteristic p fiber of X, and show that each closed Goren-Oort stratum is an iterated P^1-fibration over another quaternionic Shimura variety in characteristic p. Now suppose that [F:Q] is even and that p is inert in F. An iteration of this construction gives rise to many algebraic cycles of middle codimension on the characteristic p fibre of Hilbert modular varieties of prime-to-p level. We show that the cohomological classes of these cycles generate a large subspace of the Tate cycles, which, in some special cases, coincides with the prediction of the Tate conjecture for the Hilbert modular variety over finite fields. This is a joint work with Liang Xiao.

Optimal initial values and regularity conditions of Besov space type for weak solutions to the Navier-Stokes system (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
In a joint work with H. Sohr (Paderborn) and W. Varnhorn (Kassel) we discuss the optimal condition on initial values for the instationary Navier-Stokes system in a bounded domain to get a locally regular solution in Serrin's class.
Then this result based on a description in Besov spaces will be used at all or almost all instants to prove new conditional regularity results for weak solutions.

Levi-flat real hypersurfaces with Takeuchi 1-complete complements (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
In this talk, we discuss compact Levi-flat real hypersurfaces with Takeuchi 1-complete complements from several viewpoints. Based on a Bochner-Hartogs type extension theorem for CR sections over these hypersurfaces, we give an example of a compact Levi-flat CR manifold with a positive CR line bundle whose Ohsawa-Sibony's projective embedding map cannot be transversely infinitely differentiable. We also give a geometrical expression of the Diederich-Fornaess exponents of Takeuchi 1-complete defining functions, and discuss a possible dynamical interpretation of them.

Geography via the base loci (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
The geography of log model refers to the decomposition of the set of effective adjoint divisors into the cells defined by the resulting models that are obtained by the log minimal model program.
We will describe the geography in terms of the asymptotic base loci and Zariski decompositions of divisors.
As an application, we give a partial answer to a question of B. Totaro concerning the structure of partially ample cones.

Alternating sign matrices, primed shifted tableaux and Tokuyama
factorisation theorems (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Twenty years ago Okada established a remarkable set of identities relating weighted sums over half-turn alternating sign matrices (ASMs) to products taking the form of deformations of Weyl denominator formulae for Lie algebras B_n, C_n and D_n. Shortly afterwards Simpson added another such identity to the list. It will be shown that various classes of ASMs are in bijective correspondence with certain sets of shifted tableaux, and that statistics on these ASMs may be expressed in terms of the entries in corresponding compass point matrices (CPMs). This then enables the Okada and Simpson identities to be expressed in terms of weighted sums over primed shifted tableaux. This offers the possibility of extending each of these identities, that originally involved a single parameter and a single shifted tableau shape, to more general identities involving both sequences of parameters and shapes specified by arbitrary partitions. It is conjectured that in each case an appropriate multi-parameter weighted sum can be expressed as a product of a deformed Weyl denominator and group character of the type first proved in the A_n case by Tokuyma in 1988. The conjectured forms of the generalised Okada and Simpson identities will be given explicitly, along with an account of recent progress made in collaboration with Angèle Hamel in proving some of them.
