The trapezoidal conjecture for the links of braid index 3 (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
The trapezoidal conjecture is a classical famous conjecture posed by Fox, which states that the coefficient sequence of the Alexander polynomial of any alternating link is trapezoidal. In this talk, we show this conjecture for any alternating links of braid index 3. Although the result holds for any choice of the orientation, we shall mainly discuss the case of the closures of alternating 3-braids with parallel orientations.

A topological proof of Wolpert's formula of the Weil-Petersson symplectic form in terms of the Fenchel-Nielsen coordinates (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
Wolpert explicitly described the Weil-Petersson symplectic form
 on the Teichmüller space in terms of the Fenchel-Nielsen coordinate system, which comes from a pants decomposition of a surface.
 By introducing a natural cell-decomposition associated with the decomposition, we give a topological proof of Wolpert's formula,
 where the symplectic form localizes near the simple closed curves
 defining the decomposition.
