a great success in modern science and engineering. The underlying mathematical

models are carefully designed to perform large scale computer simulations that

involve disparate scales of space and time. Such complexities often arise

when incorporating various multiphysical components which are represented by

classes of partial differential equations (PDE).

In this talk, I will show some of the key ideas and challenges of computational

mathematics in the framework of the University of Chicago's FLASH code.

FLASH is a highly-capable, massively parallel, publicly available open

source scientific code with a wide user base in the fields of astrophysics,

cosmology, and high-energy-density physics.

In the first part, I will discuss fundamental components of mathematical

algorithms to solve PDEs in order to construct numerical solutions

of computational fluid dynamics, gas dynamics and plasma physics.

Mathematical algorithms are going to be described with special

cares on two numerical approaches: first, the traditional

high-order polynomial based formulation, and second, a new innovative

exponentially converging formulation based on Gaussian Process.

In this part of my talk, I will show valuable importances of using

high-order accurate numerical methods that will be cruicial for future

high-performance (HPC) computing architectures.

In the second part, I will present laboratory astrophysical scientific simulations

using the numerical algorithms introduced in the first part. They will

include large scale computer simulations of astrophysics and

high-energy-density plasma physics, with special emphasis on

discussing laser-driven shock experiments to understand magnetic

fields generation and amplification.

An interesting fact that we pointed out is that the algebra of observables is defined only in terms of the magnetic field without the need of a vector potential. A strict deformation quantization in the sense of Rieffel is put into evidence and a twisted pseudodifferetial calculus is developed. Some general abstract spectral results are obtained using operator algebra methods.

We will revisit the analysis of pseudo-holomorphic curves in a tensorial method by using a new connection, named the contact triad connection, for every contact triad $(Q, \xi, \lambda)$. A priori estimates and the asymptotic behavior will be given under such analysis. Such analysis indicates a possible generalization of pseudo-holomorphic curves, which we call contact instantons living in a contact manifold itself without involving the symplectization. I will mention some current results of people related to this topic and some undergoing projects of ours . This is a joint project with Yong-Geun Oh.

Title: Hilbert's 12th Problem

Abstract: The Kronecker-Weber theorem shows that every abelian extension of Q is contained in the field generated by a special value. $\zeta=e^{2\pi i/N}$ of the exponential function. In 1900 Hilbert asked at the Paris ICM, as his 12-th problem, if the abelian extensions of other number fields can be generated by the special values of explicit transcendental functions. In this talk I will introduce chronicle topics from class field theory which is related to the Hilbert's 12-th problem and recent approaches as well.

Bldg. #404 DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Dongning Wang\n\nEvent: 2013 Fall T-Seminar\n\nAbstract: Vortex equation is generalisation of Yang-Mills equation. In this talk I will focus on Vortex equation over a disk and talk about the limit of their solutions when an adiabatic parameter in the equation changes. Then I will explain its application in the study of symplectic toric manifolds/orbifolds: Using Lagrangian FLoer theory one can define a potential function for a toric manifold/orbifold, at the same time one can always write down the Givental-Hori-Vafa potential function from the moment polytope of the toric manifold/orbifold. The solution moduli of vortex equations will provide a coordinate change between the two potential functions. If time allows, I will further explain how the identification of the two potential functions leads to a proof of the open crepant resolution conjecture.

We first construct a universal primitive generator of $U$ over $L$ whose relative trace to any intermediate field $F$ becomes a generator of $F$ over $L$, too. We also develop a similar argument in terms of norm. As its applications we investigate towers of ray class fields over imaginary quadratic fields.

Is there another metric on statistical models with natural properties, which we could name information metric? This question has been solved by Chentsov in 1972 for statistical models associated with finite sample spaces. In this talk I shall discuss a conceptual approach developed jointly with Ay, Jost and Schwachhoefer to general statistical models and Fisher metrics, which leads us to the affirmative answer of the uniqueness of the Fisher metric. I also discuss some relation of the Fisher metric with statistical mechanics and string theory.

Bldg. #404 DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Jinwon Choi\n\nEvent: Algebraic Geometry Seminar 2013\n\nAbstract: By the classical Bialynicki-Birula decomposition when we have an action of an algebraic torus, the topological invariants for the moduli space are obtained by classifying its torus fixed locus and computing the torus representation of the tangent space at each fixed point. In the first part of the talk, we explain this technique with examples such as the Hilbert schemes and the moduli spaces of stable pairs. In the second part, we extend the method to define the refined stable pair invariants for local toric Calabi-Yau threefolds. A product formula for their generating function is proposed as a generalization of the motivic product formula of Morrison, Mozgovoy, Nagao, and Szendroi for local P^1. If time permits, we will also describe how the product formula can be understood by the wall-crossing in \alpha-stable pairs. This is joint work with Sheldon Katz and Albrecht Klemm.

Fraczek did computations of the spectral parameters of Maass forms and of resonances for the congruence subgroup Gamma_0(4) in dependence of a one-parameter family of characters. These computations show some remarkable features in the movement of these spectral parameters as the character approaches the trivial character. This inspired us to look for analytical ways to understand this behavior. I'll show some of Fraczek's results and compare them with the asymptotic formulas that we could prove theoretically.

In this talk, we discuss one vivid case of such phenomenon, a conjecture of Yasuo Morita which asserts that an abelian variety defined over a number field, if it does not generate geometrically, does not degenerate arithmetically either. Here, the specific structures to be considered for comparison are Hodge structures and Galois representations. A large part of the talk will be devoted to a review of these theories, insofar as relevant to our proof of this conjecture (esp. with geometers in mind). If time allows, we will also introduce certain conjectures along the same line as the Morita conjecture.

(For example, consider modular forms given by topologically close points on an eigencurve.) People who do Iwasawa Theory believe that their p-adic L-functions are also congruent modulo p^r. In fact, if we push this idea further, we can also imagine there is a big p-adic L-function over an eigencurve which is integral and smooth. This is known in the ordinary prime case (i.e. the case where the slope of modular form is a p-adic unit), and in this case, the big p-adic L-function over the eigencurve is called the Kitagawa-Mazur p-adic L-function. In the non-ordinary case, so far we know relatively little. In this presentation, we will prove that the (non-integral) p-adic L-functions that I constructed are congruent for the above-said congruent modular forms assuming that Hecke algebras are Gorenstein.

I am going to present a non-commutative generalization of this: even for a non-commutative ring A, one can define a functorial "Hochschild-Witt complex" with homology WHH*(A); if A is commutative, then WHHi(A)=WΩi(X), X = Spec A (this is analogous to the isomorphism HHi(A)=Ωi(X) discovered by Hochschild, Kostant and Rosenberg). Moreover, the construction of the Hochschild-Witt complex is actually simpler than the Deligne-Illusie construction, and it allows to clarify the structure of the de Rham-Witt complex.

Given the datum of this construction, along with Gromov--Witten invariants of the base, we will write down a "closed-formula" generating function for Gromov--Witten invariants of the preceding fibre bundles. The formula was written down and conjectured by Givental to give Gromov--Witten invariants of the bundles, and the conjecture was proved in my thesis.

Bldg. #404 DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Jaeho Shin\n\nEvent: Algebraic Geometry Seminar 2013\n\nAbstract: A matroid is a combinatorial object that can be thought of as a generalization of a spanning set of a vector space. As many other mathematical objects, it turned out that hyperplane arrangements have the matroid structure.One can define a matroid using several different axiom systems such as independent sets, bases, span operator, flats, rank function, etc. I will show that two more descriptions of a matroid can be added that are characterized by edges of the associated convex polytope and quotient matroids, respectively, each of which leads us to a new combinatorial object, a puzzle-piece.We will see moreover that the associated convex polytopes which are called base polytopes have a special gluing property which is distinguished from that of the polytopes that are just convex.The gluing property tells us something about the surjectivity of the natural morphism, say the reduction morphism, defined between two moduli spaces $\bar M_{\beta}(k,n)\rightarrow \bar M_{\beta'}(k,n)$ with two weights $\beta>\beta'$, where $\bar M_{\beta}(k,n)$ is the moduli space of weighted stable hyperplane arrangements with rank $k$, which was generalized by the Valery Alexeev from the Hasset's moduli space of curves of genus 0 with weighted $n$ points with rank 2.For Hassett's space, the reduction map is surjective for any weight $\beta\ge \beta'$, but for $k\ge 3$, the answer was expected to be ``no'' by the Mnev's universality theorem. In this talk, I will show that for $k=3$ case, there is a counterexample to the surjectivity when $n=10$, and that the map is surjective when $n=4,5,6$.

As an application, we obtain a full asymptotic expansion of the spectral function corresponding to the lower part of the spectrum of the Kodaira Laplacian on high tensor powers of a holomorphic line bundle. From this result, we could deduce many classical results in complex geometry (eg Kodaira embedding and vanishing Theorems, Demailly's Morse inequalities, Bergman kernel asymptotics for ample line bundles...). In this talk, I will explain how to obtain these classical results from this result. In time is enough, I will also mention a new result obtained in this work: the existence of the full asymptotics expansion for Bergman kernel for a big line bundle twisted with a multiplier ideal sheaf.

In the late 70s, Bloch gave a description of it in terms of relative higher algebraic K-groups of Quillen, and Illusie gave a description in terms of the de Rham-Witt complexes. Subsequently, de Rham-Witt complexes were generalized to the big de Rham-Witt complexes by Hesselholt and Madsen. In this talk, we give a description of Zariski sheaf of big de Rham-Witt complexes on smooth varieties in terms of additive higher Chow groups. From this, we deduce a new description of crystalline cohomology in terms of algebraic cycles.

Conway and Gordon showd that $K_7$, the complete graph with seven vertices, is an intrinsically knotted graph. Jonson, Kidwell and Michael showed that intrinsically knotted graphs have at least 21 edges. Also it is known that $K_7$ and the thirteen graphs obtained from $K_7$ by $\nabla Y$ moves are intrinsically knotted graphs with $21$ edges. In this talk, we prove that only these $14$ graphs are intrinsically knotted graph with $21$ edges. This is a joint work with Hyoungjun Kim, Minjung Lee and Seungsang Oh.

Bldg. #404 DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Jihun Park\n\nEvent: Algebraic Geometry Seminar 2014\n\nAbstract: In 1979 Reid discovered the 95 families of K3 surfaces in three dimensional weighted projective spaces. After this, Fletcher, who was a Ph.D. student of Ried, discovered the 95 families of weighted Fano threefold hypersurfaces in his Ph.D. dissertation in 1988. These are quasi-smooth hypersurfaces of degrees d with only terminal singularities in weighted projective spaces P(1,a1,a2,a3,a4), where d=a1+a2+a3+a4. The 95 families are determined by the quadruples of non-decreasing positive integers (a1, a2, a3, a4). All Reid’s 95 families of K3 surfaces arises as anticanonical divisors in Fletcher’s 95 families of Fano threefolds.In my talk, non-rationality of quasi-smooth hypersurfaces in the 95 families will be discussed.

Bldg. #404 DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Yunho Kim (School of Medicine, Yale University)\n\nEvent: Math Seminar\n\nAbstract: MR (Magnetic Resonance) images often contain an artifact called intensity non-uniformity. Possible causes include RF coil inhomogeneity, gradient driven eddy currents, interactions within the body. In brain MR images, we are often interested in the classification of the brain into white matter, gray matter, cerebro-spinal fluid. However, this artifact makes vague distinction between the regions and segmentation results are not usually satisfactory without preprocessing the data to correct it. In this talk, we model the artifact as a smooth and slowly varying function and characterize a set that contains such a unique function with a practical assumption. We then propose and analyze an optimization problem to find it. At the end, we provide numerical experiments and a comparison result with a popular state-of-the-art method called N3.

Given an elliptic curve with rational coefficients, the task of finding all rational solutions of it has remained one of the number theorists' favorite since the work of Diophantus. The way number theorists understand this ancient problem changed in a fundamental way in 60's when Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer formulated their famous conjecture on the relationship between solutions of an elliptic curve and the Hasse-Weil L-function of it.

Grove in the 70s, is a generalization of the closed geodesics one: given an isometry of a closed Riemannian manifold, one looks for geodesics on which the isometry acts as a non-trivian translation. In this talk, after recalling the framework of the problem and possible contact-geometric generalizations, we shall present a few new multiplicity results on certain Riemannian manifolds homeomorphic to a non-trivial product, and on Riemannian manifolds with infinite abelian fundamental group.

Next the automorphism group of a locally conformal symplectic structure is studied. It is shown that this group possesses essential features of the symplectomorphism group. By using a special type of cohomology the flux and Calabi homomorphisms are introduced.In particular the simplicity of the kernels of these homomorphisms is proved. In the second part of my talk the contactomorphism group and the strict contactomorphism group are investigated. The latter group is viewed as the quantomorphism group of the total space of a prequantization bundle in the case of a closed integral symplectic manifold.The compactly supported identity component of the contactomorphism group is simple while it is not the case of its strict subgroup. The properties of an invariant being an obstacle to the simplicity of the strict contactomorphism group are proved. Some applications to symplectic geometry and topology are presented.

We will explore different aspects of rigidity of these groups of topological isotopies and their time-one maps, and applications to smooth and topological dynamics. In particular we will explain the implications of topological contact dynamics on the helicity invariant from fluid mechanics, and a simple criterion to detect non-contractible loops of strictly contact diffeomorphisms.

Entov and L. Polterovich defined heaviness and superheaviness of closed subsets in closed symplectic manifolds to solve the problem of non-displaceability of lagrangian submanifolds. To define heaviness and superheaviness, they used the Oh-Schwarz spectral invariants which are from the Hamitonian Floer theory. We explain our method to give superheavy subsets by using noncontractible Hamitonian circle actions. One of our examples is the sum of the meridian curve and the longitude curve in the 2-torus. By this example, we give the non-trivial result about non-displaceability.

It is easy to see that the pseudometric vanishes identically when the submanifold is a point, whereas Chekanov showed that for a compact Lagrangian submanifold of a tame symplectic manifold the pseudometric is nondegenerate. I will discuss the situation for more general submanifolds, showing on the one hand that the pseudometric continues to be nondegenerate for many classes of coisotropic submanifolds, and on the other that it vanishes identically for appropriately generic submanifolds having codimension at least two.

The basic question is the following: when a symplectic homeomorphism takes some symplectic submanifold to a smooth symplectic submanifold, what can be said on the action of its restriction on capacities ? I will mainly explain a flexibility result: there are symplectic homeomorphisms that fix symplectic discs (or even codimension 4 symplectic submanifolds), and contract the restriction of the symplectic form. On the other hand, there is some rigidity in codimension 2.

More specifically, I will explain functorial properties among quantum cohomology of homogenous varieties which led to new results in quantum Schubert calculus, and a new formulation of primitive forms and its applications to mirror symmetry for Arnold's exceptional unimodular singularities. This talk is based on my various works joint with Naichung Conan Leung, Si Li, Kyoji Saito and Yefeng Shen.

Some topological problems in symplectic geometryII. Finite subgroups of symplectic Cremona group LOCATION:CGP Main Hall DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Weiwei Wu\n\nEvent: Seminar 2014\n\nAbstract: I. In this lecture I will discuss some topological aspects in symplectic geometry, surrounding problems on symplectomorphism groups and Lagrangian embeddings. Problems I will discuss stemmed from Arnold's nearby Lagrangian conjecture and Gromov's original work. We will focus more on the particular case of dimension four, where existing techniques in symplectic geometry yield more geometric information than higher dimensions.II. Finite subgroup of Cremona group is a classical topic in algebraic geometry since the 19th century. In this talk we explain an extension of this problem to the symplectic category. In particular, we will explain the symplectic counterparts of two classical theorems. The first one due to Noether, says a plane Cremona map is decomposed into a sequence of quadratic transformations, which is generalized to the symplectic category on the homological level. The second one is due to Castelnuovo and Kantor, which says a minimal $G$-surface either has a conic bundle structure or is a Del Pezzo surface. The latter theorem lies the ground of classifications of finite Cremona subgroups due to Dolgachev and Iskovskikh. This is an ongoing program joint with Weimin Chen and Tian-Jun Li.

By giving a graph structure on the nodal set and using the Euler's inequality for embedded graph, we show that the number of nodal domains is bounded from below by the number of certain singular points of the eigenfunction. The number of such points can be understood by combining recent results on Quantum Ergodic Restriction Theorems and generalized Kuznecov sum formulae. This is a joint work with Steve Zelditch.

New interesting higher structures appear naturally, which require to introduce a new mathematical object to encode their intricate combinatorics: this is the notion of an operad. I will introduce two examples of operads: the moduli space of genus 0 stable curves which encodes the category of hypercommutative algebras (also called formal Frobenius manifolds or genus 0 Cohomological Field Theories) and the framed little disks operad which encodes Batalin-Vilkovisky algebras. I will conclude with the definition of Givental action of hypercommutative algebras and formulate two conjectures of Costello and Kontsevich.During the second hour, I will explain, on two toy models (multi complexes and homotopy associative algebras) how one does homotopical algebra with operads. This will open the doors to the Koszul duality theory for operads, which will be used to produce a nice resolution for the operad encoding Batalin-Vilkovisky algebras.

The associated notion of homotopy Batalin-Vilkovisky algebras is made up of two parts: a homotopy circle action and an action of the moduli space of genus 0 curves. This will allow us to give a proof (over the rationals) of one conjecture mentioned at the end of the first talk: compute the homotopy quotient of the framed little disks operad with respect to the action of the circle. I will then introduce a necessary and sufficient condition, inspired by gauge theory, for the vanishing of this homotopy circle action and apply it to endow the de Rham cohomology of a Poisson manifold with faithful higher structures.The second hour will be devoted to the proof of the second conjecture: give an interpretation of Givental action in terms of trivializations of the circle action. The main step lies in the equality between two worlds: the infinitesimal Given action and the gauge action of homotopy Batalin-Vilkovisky algebras. The rest of the proof is given by integrating properly this infinitesimal action.

LOCATION:CGP Main Hall DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Chris Wendl\n\nEvent: CGP Seminar 2014\n\nAbstract: Stein manifolds are objects originating in complex geometry that also naturally carry symplectic structures. In recent years, the study of Stein structures has increasingly been dominated by the question of "rigid vs. flexible": on the flexible side, the so-called "subcritical" Stein manifolds satisfy an h-principle in higher dimensions, so their Stein homotopy type is determined by the homotopy class of the underlying almost complex structure, and all "interesting" invariants of such structures vanish. At the other end of the spectrum, one should expect to find pairs of Stein manifolds that are symplectomorphic but not Stein deformation equivalent, though no examples are yet known. In this talk, I will explain where NOT to look for examples: in complex dimension 2, there is a large class of Stein domains that exist somewhere between rigid and flexible, meaning that while the h-principle does not hold in any strict sense, their Stein deformation type is completely determined by their symplectic deformation type. This result depends on some joint work with Sam Lisi and Jeremy Van Horn-Morris involving the relationship between Stein structures and Lefschetz fibrations, which can sometimes be realised as foliations by J-holomorphic curves.

Thurston, R. Gompf, D. McDuff, M. Fernández, V. Muñoz, G. Cavalcanti and many other people, it is quite well-known that the category of symplectic manifolds is much bigger than the category of Kähler manifolds. Almost of their work can be done by constructing symplectic manifolds which violate certain Käherian properties. In this talk, we construct a simply connected 6-dimensional compact symplectic manifold (M, ω) such that [ω] does not satisfy the hard Lefschetz property and every odd Betti number of M vanishes. In particular, our manifold has a semifree Hamiltonian circle action with only two fixed components. As a consequence, there is a smooth compact non-Kähler symplectic manifold which is simply connected and every odd Betti number vanishes for each dimension bigger than four.

By the general result of the Simpson, the moduli space $\mathbf{M}_d$ is a projective scheme for all $d\geq 1$. By the lack of the geometry of the boundary of the space $\mathbf{M}_d$, there are very few results about the geometry of the moduli space. As the first non-trivial case, when $d=3$, Freiermuth and Trautmann showed that the space $\mathbf{M}_3$ is isomorphic to the Hilbert scheme of connected curves with degree $d=3$ and genus $g=0$. The later space consists of two irreducible components: the space of twisted cubic curves and planar cubic curves with an embedded point. In this talk, as a generalization of this one, we study the geometry of the moduli space $\mathbf{M}_4$ for $d=4$. We show that the space $\mathbf{M}_4$ has at least three irreducible components.

Griffiths studied the periods of certain rational integrals in his celebrated Annals papers. We approach his period integrals with a different optic (quantum field theoretic and homotopy Lie theoretic) and reveal hidden new structures on them. As a main theorem, we prove that the period integral of a hypersurface X can be enhanced to a homotopy Lie algebra morphism (so called an L_\infty-morphism), which governs its correlations and new extended deformations. In theoretical physics language, the main theorem amounts to constructing a (0+0)-dimensional quantum field theory where the classical action function is given by a certain polynomial, whose partition functionis exactly the Griffiths period integral of a hypersurface. Main ingredient for our approach is to construct a certain functor from the category of linear representations of Lie algebras to the category of homotopy Lie algebras and develop its general theory. We make a relevant Lie algebra representation attached to the hypersurface X. Then we apply the functor to it and run the generalmachine carefully to verify the main theorem. Also, as an application, an efficient computation algorithm for the period integrals will be given. This is a joint work with Jae-Suk Park.

Bldg. #404 DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Junyan Cao\n\nEvent: Algebraic Geometry Seminar 2014\n\nAbstract: Let $f: X\rightarrow Y$ be a fibration between two projective manifolds. The Iitaka's conjecture, one of the main conjectures in birational geometry, states that the Kodaira dimension of $X$ is larger than the sum of the Kodaira dimension of $X$ and the Kodaira dimension of the generic fiber. It has been proved by Kollar that the Iitaka's conjecture is true if the generic fiber is of general type by using some deep results in mixed Hodge theory. By using some analytic methods, we give an alternative proof (without using Hodge thoery). The advantage of our methods is that we can generalise the main result of the article of Kollar to the klt pair case.

We can regard this metric invariant as a topological invariant by Mostow's rigidity theorem. In practice, it plays a crucial role in classifying 3-manifolds or knots. In this talk we will generalize the notion of hyperbolic volume to knotted graphs as an isotopy invariant. Moreover, we suggest a volume formula written directly from knotted graph diagrams, which is inspired by the volume conjecture relating the hyperbolic volume and the Jones polynomial.

Bldg. #404 DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Seong Jin Park (POSTECH)\n\nEvent: Spring 2014 POSTECH Math Colloquium\n\nAbstract: Powder injection molding (PIM) is one of the manufacturing technologies to mass-produce near-net-shape metallic or ceramic components at a low cost. The PIM consists of four processing steps: (i) mixing—producing the pelletized feedstock of the powder and organic binders; (ii) molding—injecting the feedstock melt into the mold cavity, similar with thermoplastics; (iii) debinding—extracting or removing the organic binders out of the injection-molded part via solvents or the thermal energy; and (iv) sintering—densifying the debound part from the low initial density to the high final density, close to the full density. Among all the processes, the injection molding is one of the key steps for fabricating defect-free components. One problem in the injection molding is a powder-binder separation (P-B separation) resulted in defects such as voids, cracks and distortion. Even though there are a lot of attempts to predict the P-B separation affected by many factors including mold geometry, solid loading and injection pressure, this problem still remains to be explained. Therefore, it is important to investigate the relationship between those factors and P-B separation phenomenon. In addition, the orientation of the powder, especially for magnetic PIM components, is another consideration for successful injection molding process. Magnetic powder is prone to be aligned for the direction in magnetic field during injection molding. The final alignment of magnetic powders decides the intensity of magnets. The particle-particle, particle-flow, and magnetic field-particle interactions affect to this phenomenon. Even though a few hydrodynamic orientation models for nonmagnetic particles have been suggested to describe the particle orientation, the rheological model considering the effect of magnetic interactions did not exist. Therefore, a new model to describe the powder orientation in a magnetic field is required. In this presentation, the injection molding problem with respect to P-B separation and particle orientation will be introduced and discussed with several mathematical attempts.

Bldg. #404 DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Thomas Hudson (KAIST)\n\nEvent: PMI Number Theory Seminar\n\nAbstract: Let V be a vector bundle over a smooth scheme X. In order to establish a Schubert calculus for the full flag bundle FL V it is necessary to identify a basis for CH^*(FL V) as a module over CH^*(X). For this purpose one considers the fundamental classes of Schubert varieties, which can be described by means of double Schubert polynomials. Analogous constructions are also available for the generalized flag bundles associated to each of the classical groups. In this talk I will illustrate one possible way of defining Schubert classes in the context of a general oriented cohomology theory and more specifically in algebraic cobordism, by making use of Bott-Samelson resolutions.

Bldg. #404 DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Otfried Cheong\n\nEvent: Spring 2014 POSTECH Math Colloquium\n\nAbstract: If you can draw a graph on n vertices in the plane such that it has no crossings, then it is a planar graph, and Euler's formula implies that it has at most 3n-6 edges. What can be said if we relax this restriction - that is, if we permit some crossings in a restricted way?Examples of such graphs are k-planar graphs, where an edge is allowed to cross k other edges but not more, k-quasi-planar graphs, which can be drawn without k pairwise crossing edges, right-angle crossing graphs, where edges are allowed to cross at right angles only, and k-fan-crossing free graphs. We discuss known bounds on the number of edges of such graphs and the relationship between these families.

Bldg. #404 DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Shangkun Weng (Seoul National University)\n\nEvent: POSTECH PDEs Seminar\n\nAbstract: In this talk, we show that the incompressible Hall-MHD system without resistivity is not globally in time well-posed in any Sobolev space $H^{m}(mathbb{R}^3)$ for any $m>frac{7}{2}$. Namely, either the system is locally ill-posed in $H^{m}(mathbb{R}^3)$, or it is locally well-posed, but there exists an initial data in $H^{m}(mathbb{R}^3)$, for which the $H^{m}(mathbb{R}^3)$ norm of solution blows-up in finite time if $m>7/2$. In the latter case we choose an axisymmetric initial data $u_0(x)=u_{0r}(r,z)e_r+ b_{0z}(r,z)e_z$ and $B_0(x)=b_{0theta}(r,z)e_{theta}$, and reduce the system to the axisymmetric setting. If the convection term survives sufficiently long time, then the Hall term generates the singularity on the axis of symmetry and we have $ limsup_{tto t_*} sup_{zin Bbb R}|partial_zpartial_r b_theta(r=0,z)|=infty$ for some $t_*>0$.

Legendrians in contact manifolds play a role similar to Lagrangians in symplectic manifold, and in particular, one can study Legendrians using pseudo-holomorphic curves. When the Legendrian is the lift of a smooth knot in Euclidean 3-space, I will discuss how a count of such curves, known as knot contact homology, produces a knot invariant rich enough to detect the unknot. If time permits, I will discuss the following: how knot contact homology connects to string topology; how it can be filtered if the original knot is transverse to the standard contact structure in Euclidean 3-space; and speculations on how it connects to ``physics." Most of this work is joint with T. Ekholm, J. Etnyre and L. Ng. The string topology is joint with S. Basu, J. McGibbon and D. Sullivan. The ``string" speculation is not my own, but an idea of M.

It is a special property of Fano manifolds that the presence of a prime divisor $D$ with large $c(D)$ has consequences on the geometry of $X$. More precisely, we define: $c_X:=\max\{c(D)|D\text{ is a prime divisor in }X\}$. Then $c_X$ is at most 8, and if $c_X$ is at least 2, then we get some special properties of $X$.

Big quantum cohomology is generically semi-simple (the condition of Dubrovin's conjecture)2. Small quantum cohomology is generically semi-simple3. "Very small" quantum cohomology (i.e. QH of the monotome symplectic manifold) is semi-simple4. A small quantum cohomology algebra (of a monotone symplectic manifold) has a field as a direct summandIn 1404.7388 using mirror symmetry and a simple argument from Ginzburg-Landau theory I show that property (4) should also hold for all Fano manifolds, and prove it for all toric Fano manifolds, thus confirming conjecture of Ostrover-Tyomkin.This is also related to Conjecture O (of 1404.6407) that roughly says that the structure sheaf of a Fano manifoldis mirror dual to the Lagrangian thimble formed by the locus of real positive points.Ostrover and Tyomkin shown that for some toric Fano fourfolds (3) fails, but (2) is true. In 1405.3857 we show that for isotropic Grassmannian IG(2,6) (2) fails, but (1) is true; and also the derived category of coherent sheaves has a full exceptional collection, so it is the first case where one needs big quantum cohomology to formulate the first part of Dubrovin's conjecture. Finally, in 1404.3857 I will formulate Gamma Conjecture I (related to Conjecture O)and also Gamma Conjecture II (which is the exact formulation of the third part of Dubrovin's conjecture).I will provide some confirming examples, and give some ways that could lead to proving these conjectures.

One such count, known as Legendrian contact homology (equivalent to knot contact homology in my other talk) has proved useful to show that Legendrian submanifolds are much more rigid than smooth submanifolds. A common problem symplectic/contact geometers must face is how to find (count/classify) these pseudo-holomorphic curves. Thankfully, when the Legendrian is a knot is standard contact 3-space, the differential graded algebra (DGA) underlying Legendrian contact homology has a combinatorial reformulation. This has led to many results for Legendrian knots. I will discuss how using a Van-Kampen theorem, computing the DGA can be reduced to localized computations. In particular, for 2-dimensional Legendrians, the DGA has a combinatorial/cellular reformulation. As an application of this reformulation, I will outline how to prove a Legendrian surface has a DGA-augmentation (similar to a Lagrangian filling) if and only if it has a generating family. All terms to be defined. This is joint work with D. Rutherford. This talk is independent of my other one.

We'll begin by reviewing this construction and its implications for the mirror symmetry of K3 surfaces. If the intersection of a reflexive polytope with a hyperplane through the origin yields a lower-dimensional reflexive polytope, then the corresponding Calabi-Yau varieties are fibered by lower-dimensional Calabi-Yau varieties. A top generalizes the idea of splitting a reflexive polytope into two pieces. Tops may be used to describe either fibrations or degenerations of Calabi-Yau varieties. We give a simple combinatorial condition on tops which produces semistable degenerations of K3 surfaces, and, when appropriate smoothness conditions are met, semistable degenerations of Calabi-Yau threefolds. Our method is constructive: given a fixed reflexive polytope which will lie on the boundary of the top, we describe an algorithm for constructing tops which yields semistable degenerations of the corresponding hypersurfaces.

In this context, by refining the arguments, one can also consider preLie exponentials, gauge group action, etc. The main motivation of this preLie calculus is homotopical algebra: it provides simple formulas and a conceptual explanation for the homotopy transfer theorem.

We will start the second part by reviewing some of Kapustin-Witten's main ideas and then provide some hints for how one could have conjectured the geometric Langlands correspondence purely out of physics, without knowing any number theory.

In this talk, I will briefly recall the orbifold Gromov-Witten theory. Then, I will compute 3-point genus-0 Gromov-Witten invariants of elliptic $\mathbb{P}^1$ orbifolds by directly counting holomorphic orbi-curves.Those terms are already known from the computation of potentials: Satake-Takahashi for $\mathbb{P}^1_{2,2,2,2}$ and $\mathbb{P}^1_{3,3,3}$ cases and Krawitz-Shen for $\mathbb{P}^1_{3,3,3}$, $\mathbb{P}^1_{2,4,4}$, and $\mathbb{P}^1_{2,3,6}$ cases. Their techniques are based on some algebraic relations of the potential, for example, the WDVV equation, divisor equation, etc.We choose more direct method for the computation, namely, classifying holomorphic orbi-spheres.

Bldg. #404 DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Carlo Madonna\n\nEvent: Algebraic Geometry Seminar 2014\n\nAbstract: We prove that the Hilbert square $S^{[2]}$ of a very general primitively polarized K3 surface S of degree $d(n)=2(4n^2+8n+5)$, $n≥1$ is birational to a double Eisenbud-Popescu-Walter sextic. Our result implies a positive answers, in the case when $r$ is even, to a conjecture of O'Grady: On the Hilbert square of a very general K3 surface of genus $r^2+2$, $r≥1$ there is an antisymplectic involution. We explicitly give this involution on $S^{[2]}$ in term of the corresponding EPW polarization on it. This is the main result of a joint work with A.Iliev.

The invariant thus defined should give the Gromov-Witten invariants of all genera. The problem of finding such a cohomology theory remained open. In this talk, I will discuss our recent proposal to use perverse sheaves to provide a mathematical theory of Gopakumar-Vafa invariants. This talk is based on a joint work with Jun Li.

We discuss a geometric way to define an A-infinity functor from Fukaya category to the matrix factorization category of W(L). This is done by considering L as a reference, and by using Fukaya category operations to define the functor. In particular, we find a way to identify Lagrangian Floer complex directly as a matrix factorization of the function W(L). We discuss its application to homological mirror symmetry of orbifold projective lines, and toric Fano manifolds, This is a joint work with Hansol Hong, and Siu-Cheong Lau.

In “Symplectomorphism group relations and degenerations of Landau-Ginzburg models”, a joint work with C. Diemer and L. Katzarkov, a decomposition of the mirror Landau-Ginzburg model was defined.

The conjecture has been verified in several interesting cases by computing and comparing generators and relations of the categories. However the computations do not explain why we should expect homological mirror symmetry. We attempt to answer this question by introducing a construction of mirror Landau-Ginzburg model analogous to SYZ, and an A-infinity functor from the Fukaya category to the category of matrix factorizations of the mirror.

Assume that each end of M has amenable fundamental group. There are several definitions of volume of representations of the fundamental group of M into G. We prove that all definitions so far are equivalent. In particular, when M is a finite-volume hyperbolic n-manifold of dimension at least 4.We show that the volume of representations is constant on the connected components of the SO(n,1)-representation variety of the fundamental group of M.This result gives a new proof for the local rigidity theorem of hyperbolic lattices. If time permits, we will discuss the 3-dimensional case and some applications.

These real number are known to be related with number theory, knot theory, quantum field theory, arithmetic geometry and so on. Our interest in the study of MZVs is a connection with the theory of elliptic modular forms (or their period polynomials), which was first discovered by Don Zagier in the case of depth 2. Our goal of this talk is to explain a result of Gangl, Kaneko and Zagier that the relations among periods of cusp forms produce that of double zeta values.

From a completely different direction, Kapustin-Witten found a physical theory which led to a version of the geometric Langlands correspondence. One of our goals is to rigorously analyze the physical theory using derived algebraic geometry and to obtain the up-to-date version of the conjecture, which was not possible from the original investigation of Kapustin-Witten.The first part of the talk will be a gentle introduction to the geometric Langlands conjecture for anyone interested in the subject. We will start the second part by reviewing some of Kapustin-Witten's main ideas and then provide some hints for how one could have conjectured the geometric Langlands correspondence purely out of physics, without knowing any number theory. No knowledge of number theory or physics is assumed. The main results are based on a joint work in progress with Chris Elliott.

Each approach can be used to generalize the construction of the tensor product to A-infinity algebras with extra structure, namely a cyclic or filtered structure. We will also describe two applications of these constructions: a Kunneth formula in Lagrangian Floer theory and a formula for the cup product on the cohomology of the moduli space of Riemann surfaces.

The goal of the seminar is to introduce the relatively new theory to non-experts in the relating fields and discuss how it can be applied to solve problems in their own interests.

Bldg. #404 DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Dohyeong Kim\n\nEvent: T-Seminar\n\nAbstract: Siegel proved, in 1929, that there are only finitely many integer solutions for a generic binary cubic equations. His result is ineffective in the sense that it does not provide an algorithm to determine the complete set of solutions. Later, Baker obtained an upper bound for the size of hypothetical solutions, which in particular produces the desired algorithm. However, the upper bounds so far obtained by generalisations of Baker's method are so large, rendering the algorithm practically inefficient. In this talk, I will sketch a new method to determine the complete set of solutions, as well as plenty of numerical examples. The new methods depends on the theory of elliptic curves, especially the modularity of elliptic curves defined over the rational numbers. If time permits, I will discuss higher dimensional generalisations of the new method.

Of these, CH and HS are formally linked ( the latter being the short-wave limit of the rst) but this does not mean that they present the same features. In recent years the quest of two-dimensional generalizations was successfully pursued, with considerable success for CH and DP, and to a lesser extent for HS. This gap is in some sense filled by the paper " Wave breaking and global existence for the generalized periodic two-component Hunter-Saxton system” [B. Moon and Y. Liu, J. Dierential Equations 253 (2012) 319-355]. In this T-seminar, I will focus on the motivation, history and background, few results of our model equation, and the some future work.

Chemin, in fact, proved a more general result, showing that vorticity initially having discontinuities only in directions normal to a family of vector fields continue to be so characterized by the time-evolved vector fields. A different, four-page 'elementary' proof of the regularity of a vortex patch boundary was published in 1994 by Ph. Serfati, employing only one vector field to describe the discontinuities in the initial data. In this talk, we discuss Serfati's proof along with a natural extension of it to a family of vector fields that reproduces the 1995 result of Chemin.

Bldg. #404 DESCRIPTION:Speaker: June-Yub Lee (Ewha Womans University)\n\nEvent: Fall 2014 POSTECH Math Colloquium\n\nAbstract: A number of problems in computational physics require the solution of the Helmholtz equation. The interaction of acoustic or electromagnetic waves with structured, periodic materials is often complicated by the fact that the scattering geometry involves domains where multiple media meet at a single point.We present a robust integral equation method for the calculation of two-dimensional scattering problems in the presence of triple-points, that is problems involving multiple materials meeting at a single point. Our approach involves both the modification of a standard integral representation [V. Rokhlin (1983)] and the use of adaptive refinement at geometric singularities [L. Greengard and J.-Y. Lee (2012)]. The GMRES iterative solver equipped with Fast Multipole Method (FMM) for the second kind integral equation is an optimal algorithm for a single right-hand-side in the sense that it is a linear-time complexity algorithm with a reasonably small constant. However, a direct numerical method is more efficient algorithm for multiple right-hand-sides. Our fast direct solver is based on a the interpolative decomposition (ID) that is more useful and produces a near-optimal representation for multilevel compression of the linear system of equations [K. L. Ho and L. Greengard (2012)].

Drummond-Cole\n\nEvent: Quantum Monday 2014\n\nAbstract: There are two common approaches to putting weak equivalences on categories of differential graded coalgebras. The first, going back to Quillen, involves using coalgebras as a model for a dual category of algebras.

Bldg. #404 DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Kangjin Han\n\nEvent: Algebraic Geometry Seminar 2014\n\nAbstract: Let X be any projective variety in P^N over an algebraically closed fieldK. Suppose that X is nondegenerate, i.e. not contained in any hyperplane of P^N. Few years ago, K. Han and S. Kwak developed a technique to compare syzygies under projections, as applications they proved sharp upper bounds on the ranks of higher linear syzygies, and characterized the extremal and next-to-extremal cases.In this talk, we report generalizations of these results, which are on-going with S. Kwak and J. Ahn. First, let us consider any variety X such that the defining ideal I_X has no generators of degree less than 3. Since I_X has no generators of degree ≤ 2, so the first non-vanishing strand of the resolution comes from linear syzygies of minimal generators of degree 3. We consider a basic degree bound and sharp bounds for generators and syzygies in this cubic strand. Further, the extremal cases will be discussed in the end.

Bldg. #106 DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Sungmin Yoo(POSTECH)\n\nEvent: GAIA Seminar\n\nAbstract: The Bergman kernel function gives rise not only to the Bergman metric but also to some special holomorphic coordinate system which is called the Bergman representative map. This map appears to be quite similar to inverse of exponential map of Riemannian geometry. In this talk, I would demonstrate a construction of a holomorphic connection on the holomorphic tangent bundle of a subdomain of a given complex manifold, whose parallel curve gives rise to the inverse of the Bergman representative map. This overlaps largely to the work of S. Webster. I will also discuss some further results if time permits.

Bldg. #404 DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Hyonju Yu\n\nEvent: T-Seminar\n\nAbstract: Every Hadamard matrix H of order n > 1 induces a graph with 4n vertices, called the Hadamard graph Γ(H) of H. Since Γ(H) is a distance-regular graph with diameter 4, it induces a 4-class association scheme (Ω, S) of order 4n. In this article we deal with fission schemes of (Ω, S) under certain conditions, and for such a fission scheme we estimate the number of isomorphism classes with the same intersection numbers as the fission scheme.

We consider two sets related to generalized Henon mappings: the set of non-escaping points and the set of escaping points. The foliation about these two sets is well known. We briefly review this foliation and finally prove that the leaves of the set of escaping points are all injective Brody and that there exists an injective Brody curve in the set of non-escaping points. Our method is basically modifying the Brody reparametrization lemma.

A varietyX is called flexible if the tangent space to X at an arbitrary regular point x 2 X is generatedby tangent vectors to orbits of Ga-actions. This is equivalent to the infinite transitivity of theaction of SAutX on the regular locus X reg X, see [1]. We use the construction from [3] that provides a correspondence between open cylindricsubsets on a projective variety Y and regular Ga-actions on the affine cone over Y . We willsketch the proofs of flexibility of the following families:1. affine cones over del Pezzo surfaces of degree 4;2. affine cones over secant varieties of Veronese–Segre varieties;3. total coordinate spaces of smooth projective T-varieties of complexity 1.References[1] I.V.

For each transverse disk spatial graph, $f(G),$ we define a combinatorial invariant $HFG^-(f(G))$ which is a bi-graded module over a polynomial ring. The gradings live in $\mathbb{Z}$ and $H_1(S^3\smallsetminus f(G))$. This invariant is a generalization of combinatorial link Floer homology defined by Manolescu, Ozsvath, Sarkar (MOS) for links in $S^3$. To do this, we have generalized grid diagrams and grid moves. Following MOS, our invariant is the homology of a chain complex that counts certain rectangles in the grid. Although the chain complex depends on the choice of grid, the homology depends only on the embedding. Unlike many homology theories, our theory is not the categorification of an existing polynomial invariant. Thus taking the generalized Euler characteristic gives another new invariant, an Alexander polynomial for balanced spatial graphs. This is joint work with Shelly Harvey (Rice University).

I will argue that instead a ``Heisenberg picture'' is needed, and describe a small modification of those axioms that accommodates this. As an example, I will describe a skein-theoretic version of quantum Chern-Simons theory as a ``fully extended oriented Heisenberg-picture tqft''. It has the feature that it does not require the ``level'' to be quantized. It provides in particular a tqft packaging of skein theory, and my hope is that it will shed light on open conjectures in quantum topology. Bits of my talk will be based on joint work with M. Brandenburg, A. Chirvasitu, and C. Scheimbauer.

Homogeneous hypersurfaces arise as principal orbits of cohomogeneity one actions, and so their classication is equivalent to the classication of cohomogeneity one actions up to or-bit equivalence. Actually, the classication of cohomogeneity one actions in irreducible simply connected Riemannian symmetric spaces of noncom- pact type was obtained by J. Berndt and Y.J. Suh (for complex two-plane Grassmannian G2(Cm+2) = SU(m + 2)=S(U(2)U(m)), [?]). From this, J. Berndt and Y.J. Suh [?] classied real hypersurfaces with isometric Reebow in G2(Cm+2), m 3.

Bldg. #106 DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Dao Phuong Bac\n\nEvent: GAIA Seminar\n\nAbstract: Let $G$ be a reductive group acting linearly on the vector space $V$ via representation $\rho: G \mtn \GL(V)$ defined over an algebraically closed field $k$, and let $v \in V$ be a semistable point, i.e., $0 \notin \overline{G.v}$. Hilbert-Mumford Theorem (1965) characterized an useful criterion for semistable points, namely, there exists a cocharacter $\lambda \in X_{*}(G)$ such that $\lim_{\al \to 0} \lambda(\al).v=0$. The studying of semistable points is motivated by the determining of quotient of an algebraic variety under the action of reductive groups. Furthermore, in 1978, G. Kempf and G. Rousseau(independently) improved this remarkable result by showing that there exists a so-called optimal cocharacter $\lambda_{v}$ satisfying $\lim_{\al \to 0}\lambda_{v}(\al).v \in \overline{G.v} \setminus (G.v)$ and $\lambda_{v}$ takes $v$ outside $G.v$ fastest in some sense. This allows us to deal with many problems of geometric invariant theory over perfect (but non-algebraically closed) base fields. In this talk, we present some refinements and applications of these results for rationality problem of orbits.

The classical Harer conjecture is about the homology triviality of the obvious embedding. In the proof of this conjecture, the categorical delooping plays a key role. Both braid groups and mapping class groups have braided monoidal category structures which gives rise to double loop space structures. The homology homomorphism induced by the Harer embedding is supposed to be trivial if it preserves Kudo-Araki-Dyer-Lashof operation. In order to show this we construct two monoidal 2-categories and functors between them which give rise to two double loop spaces and a double loop space map. This is an important example of categorical delooping technique.There are various interesting embeddings of braid groups into mapping class groups and many of them are homologically trivial. We may extend this to the case of Artin groups. Most interesting Artin groups are exotic type (E_6, E_7, E_8) Artin groups. Waynryb showed that there is no geometric embedding of exotic type Artin groups into mapping class groups. We now may raise a natural question. What about the existence of nongeometric embedding? This problem is still open. It now seems that it is very hard to find an example of such an embedding. If the answer is negative, it should imply an important secret in the structure of mapping class groups.On the other hand, the categorical delooping technique that was used in the proof of Harer conjecture can be interpreted and generalized in the case of embedding of Artin groups in terms of higher category theory or higher operad theory.

Then the expected dimension of the deformation space of a locally complete intersection curve in Y is zero. However, for a given pair (d,g) it is hard to show the existence of a curve of degree d and genus g on Y and even when the existence is shown, it is very hard to prove that the curve is rigid in Y. Recently Knutsen finds a powerful method to show existence of smooth isolated curves in complete intersection Calai-Yau threefolds (CICY). In this talk, I will first recall Knutsen's method and then explain how to use a variant of it to construct new examples of smooth isolated curves in general CICY. Some related conjectures will be mentioned. If time permits, I will also talk about some non-existence results in the quintic case.

Geometric modular representation theory LOCATION:Math. Bldg. #208 DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Anthony Henderson (University of Sydney)\n\nEvent: GAIA Special Lecture Series\n\nAbstract: Representation theory is one of the oldest areas of algebra, but many basic questions in it are still unanswered. This is especially true in the modular case, where one considers vector spaces over a field k of positive characteristic; typically, complications arise for particular small values of the characteristic. For example, from a vector space V one can construct the symmetric square S^2(V), which is one easy example of a representation of the group GL(V). One would like to say that this representation is irreducible, but that statement is not always true: if k has characteristic 2, there is a nontrivial invariant subspace. Even for GL(V), we do not know the dimensions of all irreducible representations in all characteristics.In this talk, I will introduce some of the main ideas of geometric modular representation theory, a more recent approach which is making progress on some of these old problems. Essentially, the strategy is to re-formulate everything in terms of homology of various topological spaces, where k appears only as the field of coefficients and the spaces themselves are independent of k; thus, the modular anomalies in representation theory arise because homology with modular coefficients is detecting something about the topology that rational coefficients do not.

Then a version of "local Poincaré duality " would be a "homotopy commutative Frobenius algebra" structure on the de Rham complex satisfying some locality conditions. It turns out that there are at least two inequivalent notions of "homotopy commutative Frobenius algebra", depending on whether you work at "tree level" or at "all loop order" in a certain "Feynman" diagrammatics. This choice affects whether local Poincaré duality y is or is not canonical. The "all loop order" version of local Poincaré duality is closely related to Kontsevich-type problems in deformation quantization. In particular, "all loop order" local Poincaré duality on $S^1$ is obstructed; the obstruction answers the question of which Poisson structures admit universal deformation quantizations that do not require taking traces.

The problem of deciding when one 4-dimensional ellipsoid embeds into another has been reduced to combinatorics by work of McDuff, applying holomorphic curves and Seiberg-Witten theory. In higher dimensions much less is known. I will describe two ways to construct embeddings of higher dimensional ellipsoids. The first method is a process of stabilizing 4-dimensional embeddings. In joint work with Buse we showed that this construction suffices to establish packing stability for rational symplectic manifolds. The second method comes from iterating the symplectic folding map. We will see that this reproduces catalyst embeddings of Guth, and can be used to rule out higher order symplectic capacities.

In higher dimensions, to date there is no analogue of ECH. Obstructions come from the Ekeland-Hofer capacities and the volume constraint, but we will see that these are not a complete set. I will describe work with Kerman which produces stronger obstructions to certain embeddings. These show that the iterated folding maps are often optimal. Similar obstructions developed with Cristofaro-Gardiner show that in other cases stabilizations of 4-dimensional embeddings are optimal.

The embeddings of a convex domain into Euclidean space retract onto the linear symplectic group. However it is possible to get sharp bounds on the minimal size of an ambient ball in which isotopies from a given embedding to an inclusion can be performed. This leads to examples of nonisotopic polydisk embeddings into ellipsoids. It is an open question whether ellipsoid embeddings are ever nonisotopic; we show at least that our nonisotopic polydisks cannot be extended to an ellipsoid.

If the sheaves are supported on curves in $X$ (i.e. $P(m)=dm+\chi$ is linear), its structure has been studied in the perspective of the enumerative/birational geometry. In this talk, I will present the geometric properties of the space $\mathbf{M}_X(dm+\chi)$ for the Fano varieties $X$ and low degree $d$. The talk will concentrate on the birational relationship with other moduli spaces (for example, Kontsevich space and Hilbert scheme). Also, I will discuss about the \emph{cohomology ring} structure of the space $\mathbf{M}_{K_{\mathbb{P}^2}}(4m+1)$, which is one of the key step for the BPS-computation of the local $\mathbb{P}^2$. The talk is based on the joint works with Jinwon Choi, Mario Maican, and Han-Bom Moon.

LOCATION:Math. Bldg. #404 DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Richard Hind\n\nEvent: Geometry & Topology Seminar\n\nAbstract: In joint work with Olga Buse and Emmanuel Opshtein we show that associated to every symplectic 4-manifold $(M, \omega)$ is a positive constant $\lambda$ with the following property. There exists a symplectic embedding of a disjoint union of open balls into $M$ provided each ball has capacity at most $\lambda$ and the total volume of the balls is no more than the volume of $M$.In the rational case (that is, when $[\omega] \in H^2(M, \mathbb Q)$) this builds on work of Biran which relies on Donaldson's construction of symplectic hypersurfaces. In the general case we apply a flexible decomposition of $M$ (up to a subset of volume $0$) into a finite union of ellipsoids and pseudo-balls.

It has been central to signiÖcant developments since then, and it continues to present chal- lenges and mysteries to todayís researchers. We brieáy discuss its historical roots, highlight some geometric interpretations that illustrate the similarities and di§erences to standard Euclidean convexity, and review some of the prin- cipal results obtained over several decades. At the end we take a brief look at some recent research directions and formulate some open problems. This talk is expository and suitable for a general mathematical audience.

We will see that this action exhibits both rigidity and flexibility, depending on the symplectic codimension of the objects they act on. For instance, they can squeeze arbitrarily a codimension 4 symplectic polydisc (flexibility), but they preserve many symplectic invariants of coisotropic sub manifolds (rigidity).

Assuming field coefficients, our barcodes give complete invariants of the complex, and satisfy a stability theorem that unifies and extends standard results about the continuity of filtered Floer-theoretic invariants. A rather precise robustness statement for Hamiltonian fixed points follows as a quick corollary.

It is a nontrivial task to reinforce this map to become an embedding. We show that an arbitrary RAAG embeds, by a quasi-isometry, into a pure braid group and also into the area-preserving diffeomorphism groups of the disk and of the sphere. We also show that every RAAG embeds into the real line smooth diffeomorphism group. This gives a rich source of embeddings from fundamental groups of manifolds into various diffeomorphism groups.

Among all hypersurfaces of a given volume bounding a domain in a space form, a geodesic sphere has the least area, that is, it is the boundary of an isoperimetric domain in a space form. In this talk, we present some rigidity results about compact hyper surfaces with free boundary in a wedge in a space form. First, we prove that every compact immersed stable constant mean curvature hypersurface with free boundary in a wedge is part of a geodesic sphere centered at a point of the edge of the wedge. Second, we show that the same rigidity result holds for a compact embedded constant higher order mean curvature hypersurface with free boundary in a wedge. Finally, we extend this result to a compact immersed hypersurface with free boundary in a wedge that has the additional property that the ratio of two higher order mean curvatures is constant.

It is also known that all varieties of Fano type are rationally connected. Thus it is interesting to know if in the birational class of any rationally connected variety there is a variety of Fano type. Using techniques of birational rigidity, I will construct examples of rationally connected varieties of dimension $\geqslant 4$ which are not birationally equivalent to varieties of Fano type, thereby answering a question of Cascini and Gongyo. I will also discuss the strategy of dealing with dimension 3 case.

LOCATION:Math. Bldg. #404 DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Ivan Cheltsov\n\nEvent: Algebraic Geometry Seminar 2015\n\nAbstract: For a projective variety X and an ample divisor H on it, an H-polar cylinder in X is an open ruled affine subset whose complement is a support of an effective Q-divisor Q-rationally equivalent to H.This notion links together affine, birational and Kahler geometries. I will show how to prove existence and non-existence of H-polar cylinders in smooth and mildly singular del Pezzo surfaces (for different polarizations).The obstructions comes from log canonical thresholds and Fujita numbers. As an application, I will answer an old question of Zaidenberg and Flenner about additive group actions on the cubic Fermat affine threefold cone. This is a joint work with Jihun Park and Joonyeong Won.

Bldg. #404 DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Dmitrijs Sakovics\n\nEvent: Algebraic Geometry Seminar 2015\n\nAbstract: The ADE classification of surface singularities is a very well-known result, whose origin can be traced back to F.Klein (or even Plato). Weakly exceptional singularities are one of the ways of generalising the types D and E of surface singularities to higher dimension. I will describe the quotient singularities of this type and will present some ways of looking for them using both the geometric and the group-theoretic approaches. Then I will derive their classification in low dimensions and some results applicable to them in the higher-dimensional cases.

Fukaya's conjecture suggests that Witten deformation of these higher product structures have semi-classical limits as operators defined by counting gradient flow trees with respect to Morse functions, which generalizes the remarkable Witten deformation of deRham differential. We will describe briefly the proof of Fukaya's conjecture in part I of the talk.In part II, we study fiberwise Fourier transform on the semi-flat limits torus bundles $X_0$ and $\check{X}_0$ over a common base $B_0$ for a for a mirror pair of Calabi-Yau manifold $X$ and $\check{X}$. We prove that the process of solving Maurer-Cartan equation in $L^*_{X_0}$, the Fourier transform of the Kodaira-Spencer dgLa on $\check{X}_0$, has semi-classical limit as the scattering process introduced by Kontsevich-Soibelman, which is known to govern the deformation from $\check{X}_0$ to $\check{X}$. This realizes a key step in Fukaya's program on understanding quantum corrections in symplectic geometry.

When X, Y are two smooth projective complete intersection varieties with same degree and dimension, we study an explicit relationship between period matrices of X and Y via homotopy Lie theory. (Such a relationship was first studied by Jae-Suk Park and Jeehoon Park in the case of smooth projective hypersurfaces.) The main idea is to understand the period integrals as a (homotopy type) of a cochain map from the BV(Batalin-Vilkovisky) algebra and use the deformation theory attached to the corresponding DGLA(differential graded Lie algebra.) This is a joint work with Jeehoon Park.

We start with coding theory which is the study of binary cubes. We investigate binary cubes from plenty of viewpoints and briefly introduce basic concepts in coding theory. We also introduce basic four parameters of a code and inequalities satisfied by these parameters. Next we discuss association schems which are natural generalization of many objects in algebra and combinatorics including finite groups and distance regular graphs. We also introduce linear programming of Delsarte and discuss dualities on association schems. The spheres are of course the most interesting. It is a continuous object while the above two are discrete. We will see that many results from other areas of Mathematics can be used in the study of spherical codes and designs.

The theory, which is in many ways parallel to the cohomological one, brings up a number of novel features. In particular, as it tuns out, in order to make the theory successful it is necessary to consider the action of the group of permutations of the marked points, decompose sheaf cohomology of bundles over moduli paces according to representations of the permutation groups, and define "permutation-equivariant" K-theoretic GW-invariants as multiplicities of such representations. One reason why it is necessary is that such information is needed in order to apply in K-theory the computation of GW-invariants using tori actions and fixed point localization. Another reason is that natural q-analogues of toric hyper-geometric functions of cohomological mirror theory, do arise in K-theoretic version of mirror theory, but only when one agrees to incorporate the action of permutation groups. In this connection, the K-theoretic analogue of mirror theory leads to a representation of q-hypergeometric functions by oscillating integrals - just as in cohomological theory - with a novel feature however, that they "oscillate fast" when the parameter q approaches roots of unity, and that the stationary phase asymptotics at different roots of unity behave coherently with each other. Yet another surprising aspect of permutation-equivariant theory surfaces when one compares GW-invariants of a line bundle space with those of the base, or of a complete intersection with those of the ambient space. It turns out that K-theory here is more satisfactory than cohomology theory. This is due to the "bosonic-fermionic" correspondence: the Koszul comlex $\sum (-1)^k \bigwedge^k V$, which is the K-theoretic counterpart of the Euler class, is inverse to the symmetric algebra $S^*(V)$, i.e. the permutation-invariant part of the tensor algebra of $V$. The permutation-equivariant quantum K-theory is a work in progress, and many aspects exist only in the outline, while other are open. For example, the all-genera quantum K-theory of the point target space (that is, the theory of representations of symmetric groups in sheaf cohomology over Deligne-Mumford spaces) in genus 0 can be solved by using the general machinery, in its toy version can be handled by bare hands (using Kapranov's description of $\overline{M}_{0,n}$), and in all genera should conjecturally lead to a finite-difference counterpart of the KdV-hierarchy. In the lectures, I intend to oscillate between these modes: illustrate the "bare hands" approach, introduce the general machinery, and outline open problems.

Yet another surprising aspect of permutation-equivariant theory surfaces when one compares GW-invariants of a line bundle space with those of the base, or of a complete intersection with those of the ambient space. It turns out that K-theory here is more satisfactory than cohomology theory. This is due to the "bosonic-fermionic" correspondence: the Koszul comlex $\sum (-1)^k \bigwedge^k V$, which is the K-theoretic counterpart of the Euler class, is inverse to the symmetric algebra $S^*(V)$, i.e. the permutation-invariant part of the tensor algebra of $V$. The permutation-equivariant quantum K-theory is a work in progress, and many aspects exist only in the outline, while other are open. For example, the all-genera quantum K-theory of the point target space (that is, the theory of representations of symmetric groups in sheaf cohomology over Deligne-Mumford spaces) in genus 0 can be solved by using the general machinery, in its toy version can be handled by bare hands (using Kapranov's description of $\overline{M}_{0,n}$), and in all genera should conjecturally lead to a finite-difference counterpart of the KdV-hierarchy. In the lectures, I intend to oscillate between these modes: illustrate the "bare hands" approach, introduce the general machinery, and outline open problems.

To develop simulation codes, developers consider the model which may be presented by partial differential equations (PDE), its discretizations, and solution methods of resulting systems. In this talk, I will consider the numerical methods for PDE based simulation which are developing and include discretization methods and linear and nonlinear solvers. I will focus on what have to be considered to develop simulation codes on modern high performance computers (super-computer, HPC).

Current and future computer architectures are multi-core, multi-node, and heterogeneous and code developers have to aware them to develop relevant simulation codes. Due to complexity of the high performance computer (HPC), collaboration of applicationist, mathematician, and computer scientist is essentially needed.

One is in symplectic geometry and uses the moduli space of perturbed pseudo-holomorphic curve equation. The other is in gauge theory and uses the moduli spaces of solutions of various kinds of the equations appearing in Gauge theory, typically the ASD equation. When one studies gauge theory of 3 manifolds with boundary times real line it is know that two versions are mixed up. In the case we consider ASD equation in gauge theory side, we need to combine it with the study of holomorphic curves to the moduli space of flat connections on surfaces. Several proposal were made in 1990's by various people, how we do it to obtain Floer homology for 3 manifolds with boundary. In this talk I will explain how we can prove conjectures (plus alpha) which I formulated in 1990's, which is a particular version of such projects.

The n-tuple of operators $f(A) = (f_1(A_1, . . . , A_n), . . . , f_n(A_1, . . . , A_n))$ give rise to a complex $K(f(A), H)$, its so called Koszul complex, which is Fredholm whenever $f^{-1}(0)$ does not intersect the essential spectrum of the n-tuple A.Given that f satisfies the above condition, we will give a local formulae for the index of $K(f(A), H)$ and the relative determinant of $g(A)$ acting on $K(f(A), H)$.The index formula is a generalisation of the fact that the winding number of a continuous nowhere zero function f on the unit circle is, in the case when it has a holomorphic extension $\tilde f$ to the interior of the disc, equal to the number of zero’s of $\tilde f$ counted with multiplicity. The explicit local formula for the relative determinant of $g(A)$ gives, in particular, an extension of the Deligne’s formula for the Tate tame symbol to, in general, singular complex curves. This is joint work with Jens Kaad.

We expect that if variety X allows a divisorial contraction or a flip X → Y, then the derived category of X has a semiorthogonal decomposition and one component of this decomposition is equivalent to the derived category of Y. Minimizing the birational model should have the categorical incarnation in the chopping off semiorthogonal components of the derived category. A minimal model is expected to be a representative in the birational class of a variety whose derived category does not allow semiorthogonal components equivalent to the derived category of a variety birationally equivalent to X.Since the minimal model is not unique in dimension higher than 2, MMP also considers birational transformations, called flops, that link various minimal models. The derived categories are conjectured to be equivalent under flops.We will describe the algebra of various functors related to flops of relative dimension 1. In particular, we give a description of the relevant auto-equivalences in terms of spherical twists and give a categorical description of such flops by means t-structures and torsion pairs.

LOCATION:POSTECH DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Renaud Leplaideur\n\nEvent: Korean French Conference in Mathematics\n\nAbstract: The Thermodynamic formalism was imported in Dynamical Systems in the 70's by Sinai, Ruelle and Bowen. Given an observable function $\phi$ called potential, one marks out a measure called equilibrum state by using a variational principle. The maximized quantity is then called the pressure.This may be done for the one-parameter family of potential $\beta.\phi$ where $\beta$ denotes in Statistical Mechanics the inverse of the temperature.Then, if $\beta$ goes to $+\infty$, any accumulation point for the equilibrium state family is a $\phi$-maximizing measure, called ground state in Statistical Mechanics.Moreover, for "good" dynamical systems the pressure function, that is the pressure for $\beta.\phi$, is analytic.In these settings, we say that we have a phase transition if the pressure function stops to be analytic. Although analyticity is rare, we will explain why it is far from obvious to exhibit potentials with phase transition.Then, we shall show a machinery to exhibit potentials with freezing phase transition, which means that there exists a critical $\beta=\beta_c$ such that for every $\beta>\beta_c$ the equilibrium state is a ground state.

The fundamental issue of whether one or both of the strong and the weak shocks are physically admissible has been vigorously debated over several decades and has not yet been settled in a definite manner. In this talk, I address this longstanding open issue and present recent analysis to establish the stability theorem for steady weak shock solutions as the long- time asymptotics of unsteady flows for all the physical parameters up to the detachment angle for potential flow.

Similar problem for the 3D Navier-Stokes equations is listed on the seven millennium problems by the Clay Mathematics Institute. There are many numerical/physical evidences that if the finite time blow-up happens it is highly probable that it is of the self-similar type. In the case of the 3D Navier-Stokes equations, the question of self-similar blow-up is proposed by J. Leray in 1930,and answered negatively by Necas-Ruzicka-Sverak and Tsai. The crucial tool of their proof is the maximum principle, which is originated fromthe ellipticity nature of the corresponding self-similar equations. In the case of Euler equations, mainly due to the lack of the elliptic structure in the self-similar equations we need to develop new methods. in this talk we review theresult on this problem by myself, and a series of further developments on the subject later by myself and my collaborators until the very recent Liouville type/the unique continuation type results on the time periodic solutions of the self-similar Euler equations.

The formalism that we propose (joint work with H. Hong and S.C. Lau) uses a formal deformation theory of a Lagrangian L in a symplectic manifold. This formalism transforms Lagrangian submanifolds in a symplectic manifold to matrix factorizations of a mirror potential function W(L). We illustrate this in (real) surface examples, by computing matrix factorizations corresponding to curves (which are Lagrangians) in surfaces. If time permits, we will explain a non-commutative generalization of the functor to non-commutative Landau-Ginzburg models.

We study the norm of thebilinear form $Int(., .)$, with respect to the stable norm, that is, the quantity$$K(M, g) = \sup_{α,β}\frac{Int(α, β)}{l_g(α)l_g(β)}$$where the supremum is taken over all closed geodesics $α$ and $β$, and $l_g$denotes the length with respect to the metric g. We ask three basic questions:• is it true that for almost every metric g, the supremum $K(M)$ isactually a maximum ?• is it possible to find asymptotic estimates for $K(M, g)$ when $g$ hascurvature $-1$, and goes to infinity in the moduli space ?• does $K(M, g)$ have a minimum when g ranges over the moduli spaceof curvature $-1$ metrics ?

After this, Fletcher, who was a Ph.D. student of Ried, discovered the 95 families of weighted Fano threefold hypersurfaces in his Ph.D. dissertation in 1988. These are quasi-smooth hypersurfaces of degrees $d$ with only terminal singularities in weighted projective spaces $\mathbb{P}(1, a_1, a_2, a_3, a_4)$, where $d=\sum a_i$. All Reid’s 95 families of K3 surfaces arises as anticanonical divisors in Fletcher’s 95 families of Fano threefolds. These Fano threefold hypersurfaces carry many fascinating properties. In my talk, I explain how to verify that all the quasi-smooth Fano threefold hypersurfaces in the 95 families are non-rational, which confirms the conjecture of Corti, Pukhlikov and Reid. Since the entire proof is very long and adopts various methods, I will focus on one or two interesting families out of the 95 families.

Over the past decade several $q$-analogues of the combinatorial counterparts have been obtained in the $q$-Askey-Wilson scheme. I will explain how to use the method of separation of variables to solve the linearization coefficients problems in the light of recent developpements of their moments.More important is that the separation of variables technique leads naturally to integral representations of combinatorial numbers where the integrand contains a product of one or more types of orthogonal polynomials, which thereby confirms the positivity of such an integral. Finally I will show the recent connection of Carlitz's $q$-Bernoulli numbers to moments of big $q$-Jacobi polynomials, which permits to derive nice factorisations of Hankel determinants of $q$-Bernoulli numbers, and continued fractions for their generating series.

However K-stability is very difficult to test. For those Fano varieties which are not K-stable, we can define a singular Kahler-Einstein metric known as Kahler-Einstein metric with edge singularities, depending on a parameter in (0,1]. These metrics also have a reformulation in terms of log K-stability. It is well known that a smooth del Pezzo surface admits a Kahler-Einstein metric if and only if it is not the blow-up of the plane in one or two points. However they always admit a Kahler-Einstein edge metric. In this talk, after introducing all these topics, I explain how we can use birational geometry and log canonical thresholds to find Kahler-Einstein edge metrics on all del Pezzo surfaces. This is joint work with Ivan Cheltsov.

Kim identified the relations of the quantum cohomology ring of the (generalized) flag manifolds with the conserved quantities for the Toda lattice. There were expectations that a similar statement exists, relating a previously undefined quantum cohomology ring for the affine flag manifolds to the periodic Toda lattice. I will show how to construct such a quantum cohomology ring, which deforms the usual quantum cohomology ring and it depends on an additional affine quantum parameter. The construction uses the technique of "curve neighborhoods" of Schubert varieties, which were defined and studied earlier by the speaker in several joint works with A. Buch, P.E. Chaput, and N. Perrin. It turns out that the conserved quantities of the periodic Toda lattice give the ideal of relations in the new ring, at least in Lie types A-D and E6. The current project is joint with Liviu Mare.

The fundamental issue of whether one or both of the strong and the weak shocks are physically admissible has been vigorously debated over several decades and has not yet been settled in a definite manner. In this talk, I address this longstanding open issue and present recent analysis to establish the stability theorem for steady weak shock solutions as the long- time asymptotics of unsteady flows for all the physical parameters up to the detachment angle for potential flow. This talk is based on joint work with Gui-Qiang G. Chen (Univ. of Oxford) and Mikhail Feldman(UW-Madison).

Bldg. #404 DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Young-Heon Kim\n\nEvent: POSTECH MATH Colloquium\n\nAbstract: Optimal transport theory considers matchings between mass distributions, which minimize the average cost of moving a mass from one location to another. It gives a natural and effective way to interpolate different mass distributions, yielding many applications in analysis and geometry, including giving effective methods of showing isoperimetric and Sobolev inequalities. Also, analysis of optimal transport is related to the study of fully nonlinear partial differential equations of Monge-Ampere type. In the first lecture, we explain a few key examples in the theory. In the second lecture, we explain a recent result on the geometric barycenters over the space of probability measures, which is related to optimal transport between (infinitely) many mass distributions.

In the very definition of$HP_*(A)$, one needs to take the total complex of a certain bicomplex.There are two ways to do it. One of them gives $0$ in characteristic $0$,so it has been largely ingored. However, about 10 years ago it has beensuggested by Kontsevich that in positive characteristic, taking the"wrong" total complex is not stupid at all and gives an interesting newhomology theory. I am going to give a brief reminder about the classictheory of $HP_*(A)$ and de Rham cohomology, and then show thatKontsevich's suggestion is indeed true -- there is an interesting newhomology theory for algebras and DG algebras that behaves as nicely as$HP_*(A)$, but differs from it at least in some important examples.

For each of these possibilities we explicitely construct examples of minimal cubic surfaces for odd $q$ such that $q = 3k + 1$ and some other cases.

Bldg. #404 DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Sergei Gukov\n\nEvent: Winter School on Volume Conjecture, Chern-Simons Theory and Knot Contact Homology\n\nAbstract: The generalized volume conjecture relates holomorphic curves (more generally, holomorphic Lagrangian submanifolds in Hitchin moduli spaces) with quantum group invariants of knots and 3-manifolds. Our goal in these lectures will be to review this relation, based on Chern-Simons gauge theory with complex gauge group, and to see how it explains known facts and predicts new ones. In particular, since many quantum group invariants of knots can be categorified to homological invariants, one may wonder whether the generalized (or quantum) volume conjecture admits a natural categorification. I will argue that the answer to this question is "yes" and introduce a certain deformation of the holomorphic curves that completely describes the "color behavior" of knot homology. This deformation is strong enough to distinguish mutants, and its most interesting properties include relation to knot contact homology and knot Floer homology.Links to lecture notes:http://arxiv.org/pdf/1211.6075.pdf http://arxiv.org/pdf/1211.6075.pdf http://arxiv.org/pdf/1510.01795.pdf END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART:20151214T100000 DTEND:20151214T120000 DTSTAMP:20151213T150000Z UID:168b724f9adc8794a8ca2b1741fa73a1@cgp.ibs.re.kr SUMMARY:Quantum Teichmuller theory and TQFT I LOCATION:Math.

Then $(X,\Delta)$ has either a good minimal model or a Mori fiber space (see [BCHM]'s main result and its extensions).

As an application of these modern techniques, I will also sketch the idea that how to extend the termination of LMMP with scaling on Kawamata log terminal pairs to log canonical pairs under a positivity condition.

Secondly, we prove that the Chern number $N = \langle c_1(E)^n, [B] \rangle$ of the complex line orbi-bundle $E$ associated to $M$ satisfies $l \cdot N \in \mathbb{Z}$ where $B = M / S^1$ and $l$ is the least common multiple of the orders of the isotropy groups of the element of $M$.

In case of $S^3$ one can perform a large N transition for topological strings and relate the Gromov-Witten theory to the corresponding theory in the resolved conifold.

Bldg. #404 DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Sergei Gukov\n\nEvent: Winter School on Volume Conjecture, Chern-Simons Theory and Knot Contact Homology\n\nAbstract: The generalized volume conjecture relates holomorphic curves (more generally, holomorphic Lagrangian submanifolds in Hitchin moduli spaces) with quantum group invariants of knots and 3-manifolds. Our goal in these lectures will be to review this relation, based on Chern-Simons gauge theory with complex gauge group, and to see how it explains known facts and predicts new ones. In particular, since many quantum group invariants of knots can be categorified to homological invariants, one may wonder whether the generalized (or quantum) volume conjecture admits a natural categorification. I will argue that the answer to this question is "yes" and introduce a certain deformation of the holomorphic curves that completely describes the "color behavior" of knot homology. This deformation is strong enough to distinguish mutants, and its most interesting properties include relation to knot contact homology and knot Floer homology.

Bldg. #404 DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Seung-Jo Jung\n\nEvent: Algebraic Geometry Seminar 2015\n\nAbstract: In this talk, I propose a conjecture on quotient singularities and the moduli spaces of G-constellations. For a finite group G in GL_n, a G-equivariant sheaf F on C^n is called a G-constellation if H^0(F) is isomorphic to the regular representation of G as G-modules. In [Craw and Ishii, Duke 2004], Craw and Ishii proved that for a finite abelian group G in SL_3(C), every projective crepant resolution of C^3/G is isomorphic to the fine moduli space of theta-stable G-constellations for some GIT parameter theta. The (generalised) Craw-Ishii conjecture says that for G in GL_3, every relative (projective) minimal model of C^3/G has a moduli interpretation using G-constellations. In this talk, I prove this conjecture in some cases.

Young\n\nEvent: Seminar 2015\n\nAbstract: The problem of understanding BPS states in Calabi-Yau compactifications of oriented string theory has led to a number of subfields of mathematics, Donaldson-Thomas theory and Gromov-Witten theory being two prime examples.Mathematicians and physicists have by now developed sophisticated techniques to approach this problem. However, if one considers orientifold string theory, a string theory which includes unoriented worldsheets, then our understanding is at a much more basic level. In this talk, after introducing the orientifold construction and explaining why it is of natural interest to mathematicians, I'll describe some recent results about the structure of Donaldson-Thomas theory with orientifolds. In particular, I'll explain a framework which allows one to prove orientifoldversions of wall-crossing formulas and the integrality conjecture of Kontsevich-Soibelman and Joyce-Song.

A categorified DT invariant refers to a cohomology theory or a motivic invariant whose Euler number is the Donaldson-Thomas invariant.

We propose to change the DeRham DGA to finite-dimenssional A-infinity algebra (or to A-infinity algebra with operations belonging to the trace class). We will call geometry corresponding to such algebra Feynman geometry. We consider different examples of Feynman geometry and note that the string theory is among them.

While the partition function deals with global observables, we study the structure of the local observables given by quantizing this two-dimensional field theory. In our formalism the local observables form a sheaf of two-dimensional factorization algebras. Our main result is that this construction recovers the sheaf of so-called chiral differential operators introduced by Gorbounov, Malikov, and Schechtman, and discussed by Witten in the context of (0,2)-supersymmetric field theories.

Cattaneo\n\nEvent: Mathematics of Quantum Field Theory\n\nAbstract: According to Segal and Atiyah, a quantum field theory on manifolds with boundary should be thought of as, roughly speaking, the assignment of a vector space (space of states) to the boundary and an element thereof (the state or the evolution operator) to the bulk, in a way that is compatible with gluing. In this talk (based on joint work with P. Mnev and N. Reshetikhin) I will describe how this has to be reformulated when working in perturbation theory. In particular, I will discuss the perturbative quantization of gauge theories on manifolds with boundary.

One condition is that f and g should pull back cohomology in the same way. But even when X is a sphere, this is far from sufficient. In relatively recent work, Ben Walter and I resolve this question when X is a sphere and Y is simply connected, rationally (that is, up to then multiplying f and g by some non-zero integer). We do so by giving explicit integrals, generalizing Whitehead’s integral formula for the Hopf invariant, which has been cited regularly in the physics literature. Our integrals are special cases of integrals developed by Cattaneo and Mnev in the context of Chern-Simons theory.

In this talk, I'll describe ongoing joint work with Jens Kaad and Ryszard Nest in which we transport these non-Archimedean constructions to the classical setting to construct determinant gerbes associated to smooth double loop groups, and study the associated higher central extensions.

However, it seems like that the notion of vertex algebras was already known implicitly to physicists much earlier. In fact, the theory of vertex algebras serves as the rigorous mathematical foundation for 2-dimensional quantum field theory. Vertex algebras are also very useful in the representation theory of infinite dimensional Lie algebras.In this talk, we first review free field realization of irreducible representations of affine Lie (super)algebras. Our approach produces vertex operators and relates the representation theory of affine Lie (super)algebras to several product-summation type identities including the denominator identities. At the end of this talk, we will introduce our recent results concerned with this topic.

In this talk I will explain how this setting can be generalized from cohomology and the Chow ring to other oriented cohomology theories such as connective K-theory and algebraic cobordism. In the process a key role is played by a generalized version of Segre classes. This is a joint work with Tomoo Matsumura.

They associated such mutations to the so-called Markov triples (integer a,b,c with the property $a^2$+$b^2$+$c^2$=3abs). In their turn, these Markov triples correspond to the weighted projective planes P(a,b,c) that admit smoothing to the ordinary plane CP2=P(1,1,1).In the same preprint Galkin and Usnich have conjectured that the resulting Laurent polynomials correspond to the holomorphic disk potentials of an (infinite) family of exotic monotone Lagrangian tori in CP2. In its weaker version (correspondence on the level of Newton polygons of the potentials) this conjecture was proved in the 2014 preprint of Renato Vianna. This result already implies existence of infinitely many of distinct monotone Lagrangian tori. The talk will present a joint work with Sergey Galkin establishing the original version of the conjecture, i.e. also taking into account correspondence on the level of the coefficients of the potentials.

It was noted already by Hilbert that the most topologically restrictive case is when the number of ovals is maximal for its degree (the so-called M-curves). Spatial real algebraic curves are links topologically. In particular real rational curves are knots whose topological types are constrained by their degree.In this survey talk we focus on two new quantitative characteristics (indices) of real algebraic curves: one for curves in the plane http://arxiv.org/abs/1505.04338 and one for curves in the 3-space http://arxiv.org/abs/math/0005162. Maximality of these numbers has strong topological implications. The 3-dimensional part of the talk is based on a joint work in progress with Stepan Orevkov.

Notably, these techniques are used to give a complete classification result for Lagrangian tori in the symplectic vector space up to Hamiltonian isotopy. In addition, in joint work with E. Goodman and A. Ivrii, we also show that there is a unique torus up to Lagrangian isotopy inside the symplectic vector space, the projective plane, and the monotone S2 x S2.

The isotypicdecomposition of theses modules or their tensor products as$U_q(\mathfrak{g})$-modules is given by the fermionic formula which can be regarded as a representation theoretic version of completeness of the Bethe ansatz.In spite of its elegance, it quickly becomes impractical as the rank of $\mathfrak{g}$ increases due to its complicated combinatorial nature. Thus it is advantageous to have a more explicit description ofthis decomposition for practical purposes. Such a formula is well-known in classical types, but remains largely conjectural in exceptional types.I will talk about linear recurrence relations satisfied by the sequence $\{Q_m^{(a)}\}_{m=0}^{\infty}$ of the characters of the Kirillov-Reshetikhin modules and how they shed light on the aboveproblem. The key idea is to regard this decomposition as a summation over the lattices points in a suitable polyhedron.

We prove that we can associate a multigraph that does not have any loops. As an application, we complete the proof of symplectic Petrie's conjecture for eight dimensional manifolds. This talk is based on Hamiltonian circle actions on eight dimensional manifolds with minimal fixed sets, with Susan Tolman, to appear in Transformation Groups.

Bldg. #404 DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Frederic Campana\n\nEvent: Algebraic Geometry Seminar 2016\n\nAbstract: The talk will report on the proof, applications and extension to the orbifold context of the following result: if X is a complex projective manifold with a foliation F such that the slope of every nonzeroquotient Q of F has a positive slope with respect to a ‘movable class’ c, this foliation has algebraic leaves, with rationally connected closures. This strengthens and extends former results of Miyaoka and Bogomolov-Mc Quillan. Of considerable importance in the applications is the fact that the class c is movable, and no longer a complete intersection of polarisations. This result can be applied in particular to the solution of the ‘hyperbolicity conjecture’ of Shafarevich-Viehweg and to the definition of rational connectedness and ‘rational quotient’ in the orbifold context, central in the description of the structure of projective manifolds.

In particular, Φ−1(r) is Lagrangian if and only if r is an interior point of X .Using the theory of Okounkov bodies and toric degenerations, it was proved that any smooth projective variety Y admits a completely integrable system on a dense open subset of Y which can be extended continuously to the whole space Y . Unlike the toric case, some ﬁbers of the integrable system are non-torus Lagrangian and they might have non-vanishing Lagrangian Floer cohomology.In this talk, we study a certain completely integrable system, called the Genfand-Tsetlin system, on a ﬂag variety and explain how to classify all non-torus Lagrangian ﬁbers in a purely combinatorial way.

These algebras enjoy a fortunate combination of good formal properties and computability, the latter afforded by a Poincare-Birkhoff-Witt type result. The main application pairs this theory of higher enveloping algebras with the theory of factorization homology in a study of the rational homology of configuration spaces, leading to a wealth of computations, the recovery and improvement of several classical results, and a new, combinatorial proof of homological stability.

For any tree $Γ$, we calculate (DG-)algebra models of the Fukaya category $F(X_Γ)$ of closed exact Lagrangians in $X_Γ$ and the wrapped Fukaya category $W(X_Γ)$. When $Γ$ is a Dynkin tree of type $An$ or $Dn$ (and conjecturally also for E6 , E7, E8 ), we prove that these models for the Fukaya category $F(X_Γ)$ and $W(X_Γ)$ are related by (derived) Koszul duality. As an application, we give explicit computations of symplectic cohomology of $X_Γ$ for $Γ = An, Dn$ , based on the Legendrian surgery formula. This is joint work with Tolga Etgu.

We show that a free Lagrangian orbit of a Hamiltonian G-action on a compact, monotone, symplectic manifold $X$ split-generates an idempotent summand of the monotone Fukaya category over $k$ if and only if it represents a non-zero object of that summand. Our result is based on: an explicit understanding of the wrapped Fukaya category of $T*G$ through Koszul twisted complexes involving the zero-section and a cotangent fibre; and a functor canonically associated to the Hamiltonian G-action on $X$. Several examples can be studied in a uniform manner including toric Fano varieties and certain Grassmannians. Time permitting, I will also discuss how our result leads to examples of symplectic (possibly Kähler) manifolds with a non-formal $A_\infty$ structure on their quantum cohomology.

It is natural to expect a generalization of the fundamental theorem by Gromov-Yomdin; the entropy of an autoeuqivalence on a complex smooth projective variety should be given by the logarithm of the spectral radius of the induced map on the numerical Grothendieck group. I also show that this conjecture holds for elliptic curves (Kikuta's result) and if the canonical or anti-canonical sheaf is ample.

For example, a t-structure can be interpreted as a cohomology theory. On the other hand, it can also be considered as a 'first approximation' of a notion of stability. We will see the many t-structures that can arise in the derived category of coherent sheaves on elliptic fibrations, and get a glimpse of how they behave under Fourier-Mukai transforms.

In 1980's, Drinfel'd-Sokolov discovered relations between a W-algebra associated to a principal nilpotent element and integrable systems. Recently, by De Sole-Kac-Valeri, algebraic structures of W-algebras associated to any nilpotent elements and integrable systems associated to those algebras are completely understood. For a W-superalgebra (or W-algebra associated to a Lie superalgebra), there is a natural definition introduced by De Sole-Kac. However, it is not known if W-superalgebras are related to super-integrable systems. In this talk, I will explain W-superalgebras can be understood by an analogous argument of Drinfel'd-Sokolov. If time allows, I will propose a way to associate a W-superalgebra to super-integrable systems, in the simplest case.

In the first part of the talk, I will give a survey on the theory of cohomology jump locus, especially the structure theorems developed by Simpson, Schnell, Budur and myself. As an application, I will give an example of non-Kahler Calabi-Yau symplectic-complex manifold. This example is joint work with Lizhen Qin. In the second part of the talk, I will present an ongoing project with Nero Budur exploring the notion of “absoluteness”. In the late 70's, Deligne introduced the notion of absolute Hodge cycles. They are cohomology classes of a complex projective variety in some sense compatible with Galois actions of $Gal(\mathbb{C}/mathbb{Q})$. Inspired by the work of Deligne, Simpson defined the notion of absolute constructible sets. They are subvarieties of the moduli space of local systems on a projective variety. With his notion of absolute constructible sets, Simpson proved the structure theorem of cohomology jump loci for projective varieties. This is one of the main achievements in the subject of cohomology jump loci, and has many applications in algebraic geometry. I will give a further generalization of Simpson’s absolute constructible sets in two directions: (i) projective varieties are replaced by quasi-projective varieties. (ii) moduli spaces of local systems are replaced by the derived categories of constructible complexes. With this new notion of absoluteness, we can prove some strong generalizations of the structure theorems of Simpson and Schnell.

Semi-global Kuranishi structures and contact homology LOCATION:Math. Bldg. #404 DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Erkao Bao\n\nEvent: Seminar 2016\n\nAbstract: 1. Contact homology is an invariant of a contact structure. In this talk, we will start with the definition of a contact structure, then build up our way by looking at the Morse homology, and finally we will have a gentle definition of contact homology, which can be viewed as an infinite dimensional Morse homology. 2. Contact homology was proposed and studied by Eliashberg,Givental and Hofer 16 years ago. It is a very powerful tool to distinguish different contact structures. However, the rigorous definition did not come out until last year. In this talk, we will first see that the naive definition does not work because the spaces of "trajectories" that we count to define the differential of contact homology are not transversally cut out. Then we will construct a finite dimensional space K around the spaces of "trajectories" in a systematical way, and inside K we perturb the "trajectories" so that now they are transversally cut out. The space K together with the perturbation is called a semi-global Kuranishi structure, which is a variation of the Kuranishi structure by FOOO.

Traditionally, the algebraic structure is phrased in terms of an action of the homology of the moduli space of Riemann surfaces on the homology of the free loop space of the manifold. It is expected that this action should be induced by an action of the chains on a compactification of moduli space on the chains of the free loop space. In this talk, we report on recent joint work with Drummond-Cole and Rounds constructing a space of operations on the chains of the free loop space which describes part of this action.

Bldg. #404 DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Sho Tanimoto\n\nEvent: Algebraic Geometry Seminar 2016\n\nAbstract: Manin’s conjecture predicts an asymptotic formula for Fano varieties, and it has an explicit asymptotic formula in terms of geometric invariants of the underlying variety. However, the original conjecture which predicts formulae after removing proper closed subsets is wrong due to the existence of the covering families of subvarieties violating compatibility of Manin’s conjecture, its refinement, suggested by Peyre, removes thin sets instead of closed sets. In this talk, I would like to present some positive evidences of this refinement using birational geometry, e.g., the minimal model program. This is joint work with Brian Lehmann.

LOCATION:Math. Bldg. #404 DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Hyoungjun Kim\n\nEvent: Mini Workshop on Knot theory\n\nAbstract: A graph is called intrinsically knotted if every embedding of the graph contains a non-trivially knotted cycle. Robertson and Seymour proved that there are only finitely many minor minimal intrinsically knotted graphs, but finding the complete set of them is still an open problem. Johnson, Kidwell and Michael showed that intrinsically knotted graphs have at least 21 edges. Lee, Kim, Lee, and Oh found the complete set of minor minimal intrinsically knotted graphs with 21 edges. It is also shown by Barsotti and Mattman, independently. Since Y∇ move preserve intrinsic knotting, every intrinsically knotted graph has at least one cousin that is triangle-free intrinsically knotted. This means that finding the set of triangle-free intrinsically knotted graphs is the first step for classifying the complete set of minor minimal intrinsically knotted graphs. The restoring argument is the constructing operation which helps us to determine the given graph is IK or not. By using operation, I will show that there are five triangle-free intrinsically knotted graphs with 22 edges and a single degree 5 vertex. This work is collaborated with Thomas Mattman and Seungsang Oh.

Similar methods, such as those of cohomology, are also useful in both disciplines. It is a very interesting question, and to which there is as yet no definitive answer, as to whether there is a deeper relationship that goes beyond the possibility that there may be only a few methods open to us and the two disciplines both exploit some of these because these are the only techniques available.

In some cases, these correspondences have arithmetic consequences. Among the arithmetic correspondences predicted by mirror symmetry are correspondences between point counts over finite fields. In particular, we explore closed formulas for the point counts for our alternate mirror families of K3 surfaces, their relation to their Picard-Fuchs equations and hypergeometric functions. This is joint work with: Charles Doran (University of Alberta, Canada), Tyler Kelly (University of Cambridge, UK), Steven Sperber (University of Minnesota, USA), John Voight (Dartmouth College, USA), and Ursula Whitcher (University of Wisconsin, Eau Claire, USA).

For example, each closed hyperbolic three-manifold defines a number field; and its hyperbolic volume is associated to a class in the Bloch group of that number field. In recent years, physicists have found that one can associate not just a number field or a volume but an entire three-dimensional supersymmetric quantum field theory T[M] to a 3-manifold M -- such that invariants like the volume are recovered as simple observables in T[M]. One prediction of this so-called 3d-3d correspondence is that three-dimensional hyperbolic geometry has a natural categorification. I will explain what this means at a mathematical level; and discuss some inroads toward practical computations.

A few years earlier, Kapustin and Witten (2006) placed a form of the categorical conjecture in a physical context, but their work didn't capture the algebro-geometric nature of the conjecture nor did it address the subtleties Arinkin and Gaitsgory had to overcome. After setting up a rigorous mathematical model for Kapustin and Witten's theory, we realize the categorical geometric Langlands conjecture as an instance of S-duality after choosing a point in the moduli space of vacua. Along the way, we also find some curious new structures in geometric Langlands. This talk is based on an ongoing project with Chris Elliott.

I will explain how these features can be described by so-called ambitwistor strings - two-dimensional chiral CFTs in an auxiliary target space, the phase space of complex null geodesics. This provides an excellent example of the wide-reaching impact worldsheet formulation have on the study of scattering amplitudes. On the higher-genus worldsheets required to describe loop effects, however, the mathematical framework becomes computationally challenging. Yet something remarkable happens for ambitwistor strings: due to the algebraic nature, the higher genus expressions can be transformed into simple formulae on the Riemann sphere. I will end with a brief discussion of two loops, and a proposal for the all-loop integrand.

The first group of problems has to do with curve counting (Gromov-Witten invariants) of Calabi-Yau 3-folds, and the other is about invariants of 3-manifolds (Witten-Reshetikhin-Turaev invariants). The definition of these invariants shows no sign of integrality or modularity. However, resurgence (Borel resummation) yields a q-series which, when applied to degenerate saddle points, turns out to be modular and has integer coefficients! This is based on very recent work with Marcos Marino, Pavel Putrov, and Cumrun Vafa.

This is achieved by combining three ingredients: (i) Elkies' method of mapping ABC-triples to elliptic curves in his demonstration that ABC implies Mordell/Faltings; (ii) an explicit pair of elliptic curve and associated Belyi map given by Khadjavi-Scharaschkin; and (iii) the fact that the bipartite brane-tiling/dimer model for a gauge theory with toric moduli space is a particular dessin d'enfant in the sense of Grothendieck. We explore this correspondence for the highest quality ABC-triples as well as large samples of random triples. The Conjecture itself is mapped to a statement about the fundamental domain of the toroidal compactification of the string realization of N=4 SYM.

This can be proven using on Witten's reformulation of the holomorphicanomaly equations as wave function equation and modular properties of elliptic fibrations that can be inferred from homological mirror symmetry. If the pole structure in the elliptic arguments is know the determinationof Z becomes a finite problem, that in many cases is completely fixed by vanishing conditions of BPS invariants. The latter observation determines many theories e.g. the partition function for the E-string completely.

Similar methods, such as those of cohomology, are also useful in both disciplines. It is a very interesting question, and to which there is as yet no definitive answer, as to whether there is a deeper relationship that goes beyond the possibility that there may be only a few methods open to us and the two disciplines both exploit some of these because these are the only techniques available. I will try review areas where there may be common interest and will discuss, in particular, analogies and possible application between path integration and the conjecture of Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer.

For an automorphism on the Enriques surface $X/\tau$, we study the orders of lifted automorphisms on X. Moreover we classify the triples (X,g,H), where g is a purely non-symplectic lifted automorphism and H is a g-invariant and $\tau$-invariant ample divisor of degree 2. Thus we classify K3-covers with a purely non-symplectic automorphism represented as a double cover of a smooth quadric or a singular cone in $\BP^3$.This is a joint work with H. Kenji.

Varieties with an action of an algebraic group G arise naturally in geometry. The remarkable class of G-varieties is provided by spherical varieties which are normal G-varieties containing an open orbit under the action of a Borel subgroup of G. Toric varieties, flag varieties, horospherical varieties, symmetric varieties and wonderful varieties are interesting examples of spherical varieties. Amazingly, they are classified in a combinatorial description, a colored fan, by the Luna-Vust theory. A lot of geometric properties such as completeness, affinity and local factoriality can be read off its colored fan as in the theory of toric varieties. But the criterion on smoothness for spherical varieties is more complicated so that we have to take into account the root systems illustrated by marked Dynkin diagrams or Luna diagrams.

Lagrangian submanifolds are examples of them. Kapustin and Orlov observed that coisotropic A-branes are needed for the homological mirror symmetry to hold in general. In the semi-flat case, SYZ transformation takes Lagrangian sections on X to holomorphic line bundles L over its mirror Y, in which these line bundles are flat along fibers. Chan, Zhang and I showed that if instead of fiberwise flat, L are fiberwise Yang-Mills, then their mirror are precisely coisotropic A-branes. This construction used fiberwise Nahm transformation.

Fintushel and R. Stern introduced a new surgery technique, called $a$ $knot$ $surgery$, to show that a large class of simply connected smooth 4-manifolds admit infinitely many distinct smooth structures. The knot surgery technique is following: Suppose that $X$ is a simply connected smooth 4-manifold containing an embedded torus $T$ of square $0$. Then, for any knot $K$ $\subset$ $S^3$, one can construct a new 4-manifold, called $a$ $knot$ $surgery$ $4$ - $manifold$,$\mathbf{X}_K$ = $X$ $\mathbf{\sharp}_{T = \mathbf{T}_m}$ ($\mathbf{S}^1$ X $\mathbf{M}_K$) (1) by taking a fiber sum along a torus $T$ in $X$ and $\mathbf{T}_m$ = $S^1$ x $m$ in $S^1$ x $\mathbf{M}_K$, where $\mathbf{M}_K$ is the 3-manifold obtained by doing 0-framed surgery along $K$ and $m$ is the meridian of $K$. For example, if $X$ is a simply connected elliptic surface $E(n)$, $T$ is the elliptic fiber, and $K$ is a fibered knot, then the knot surgery 4-manifold $\mathbf{E(n)}_K$ admits not only a symplectic structure but also a genus $2g(K) + n – 1$Lefschetz fibration structure. In this article we investigate Lefschetz fibration structures on knot surgery 4-manifold $\mathbf{E(n)}_K$ and we answer the following question proposed by I. Smith: Does the diffeomorphism type of a smooth 4-manifold determine the equivalence class of a Lefschetz fibration by curves of some given genus?This is a joint work with Ki-Heon Yun.

In almost-toric fibrations one allows in additionto elliptic singularities of toric systems another type of non-degenerate singularity,the so-called focus-focus singularities. These singularities can be “traded” one toanother, thus giving insights in the moduli space of these Lagrangian fibrations.However, such modification implies degenerate singularities at the bifurcation of thesystem.Strominger-Yau-Zaslow (SYZ) approach of Homological Mirror Symmetry conjecturesthe existence between M and its mirror $\check{M}$ of special Lagrangian fibrationsby tori over a same base space, whose associated affine structure are related by aLegendre transform. In dimension 2$n$ = 4, the fiber can pinch at prescribed loci:they are almost-toric fibrations.

In particular,the singularities are degenerate.

We want to deautonomize these mappings by allowing blow-up points to move (and in this case the mappings are lifted to isomorphisms of a family of generalized Halohen surfaces). Because we have many singular fibers, the invariant divizor class can be decomposed in many ways, and accordingly, many root subsystems of E8 inside the Picard lattice can appear. Expressing the mappings in terms of the elementary reflections of these root subsystems, provides new discrete Painlev e equations (as related to translations in the corresponding affine Weyl group).

We say that G is Jordan if it admits some Jordan constant. A classic theorem of Camille Jordan states that GL(n,R) is Jordan for every n (Jordan, of course, used a different terminology). Some twenty five years ago ?ienne Ghys asked whether diffeomorphism groups of compact manifolds are Jordan. This is known to be true in many cases (including spheres, tori, and manifolds with nonzero Euler characteristic), but it is false in other cases. The easiest counterexample is the product T^2 x S^2. After discussing these facts, I will explain why, in contrast, the symplectomorphism group of T^2 x S^2 endowed with any symplectic form is Jordan, and one can compute almost exactly the optimal Jordan constant for it. So, at least for T^2 x S^2, the finite transformation group theories in the smooth and the symplectic categories differ qualitatively. Time permitting, I will talk about other symplectic 4-manifolds.

Bldg. #404 DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Minseok Choi\n\nEvent: Math. Dept. Seminar\n\nAbstract: Uncertainty Quantification (UQ) has recently received an increasing amount of attention and is a fundamental challenge in numerical simulations of many physical complex problems such as climate modeling. Models of physical systems typically involve uncertainty in the input data such as those associated with coefficients, initial or boundary conditions, geometry, etc. Estimating the propagation of this uncertainty into computational model ouput predictions is crucial to provide more insight to the true physics and produce predictions with high fidelity.In this talk, we will discuss some of the recent devleoped UQ algorithms based on the generalized polynomial chaos, one of the most widely used approaches. Emphasis will be placed on tackling the "curse of dimensionality", and two dfferent approaches will be introduced that reduce the effective dimensionality in the parametric space. We will discuss ANOVA methods combined with polynomial chaos to deal with high dimensional problems. We will present a unified framework of time-dependent Karhunen-Loeve expansions that extracts a low-dimensional structure on-the-fly to the stochastic solutions offering siginificant computational saving over some existing methods. We demonstrate the efficiency of our methods through various numerical examples.

For example, (big) quantum cohomology in the A model or universal unfolding in the Landau-Ginzburg B model are examples of Frobenius manifolds. Since Dubrovin introduced this notion, the main tool to investigate them has been mostly geometric and analytic. However, it was introduced as a theory of a type of conformal field theory, as can be seen from one of his earlier papers on this subject. Then a natural question is, what the relationships are with representations of the Virasoro-type algebra that is associated with this specific conformal field theory, as is usual in the literature on conformal field theories. We expect a new tool to analyze problems in Frobenius manifolds, such as orbifolding. This is a work in progress, and we will report on the current status in this approach.

We consider perturbations of the relativistic Maxwellian equilibrium states. We work in the case of spatially periodic box. We consider the general conditions on the collision kernel from Dudynski and Ekiel-Jezewska (Commun Math Phys 115(4):607–629, 1985). Additionally, we prove sharp constructive upper and coercive lower bounds for the linearized relativistic Boltzmann collision operator in terms of a geometric fractional Sobolev norm; this shows a spectral gap exists and this behavior is similar to that of non-relativistic case as shown by Gressman and Strain(Journal of AMS 24(3), 771–847, 2011). This is the first global existence and stability result for relativistic Boltzmann equation without angular cutoff and this resolves the open question of perturbative global existence for the relativistic kinetic theory without the Grad's angular cut-off assumption.

Bldg. #404 DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Sungjong No\n\nEvent: The 2nd Mini Workshop on Knot theory\n\nAbstract: Bae and Park found an upper bound on the arc index of prime links in terms of the minimal crossing number. We extend the definition of the arc presentation to spatial graphs and find an upper bound on the arc index $\alpha (G)$ of any spatial graph $G$ such as $$\alpha (G) \leq c(G) + e + b,$$ where $c(G)$ is the minimal crossing number of $G$, $e$ is the number of edges, and $b$ is the number of bouquet cut-components. This upper bound is lowest possible. Furthermore, we find an upper bound of stick number $s(G)$ by using the upper bound of the arc index as follow: $$s(G) \leq \frac{3}{2}c(G)+2e+\frac{3b}{2}-\frac{v}{2}$$ where $v$ is the number of vertices of G.

Bldg. #404 DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Dai Tamaki\n\nEvent: The 2nd Mini Workshop on Knot theory\n\nAbstract: Given a graph G, regarded as a 1-dimensional cell complex, the fundamental group of the unordered configuration space $Conf_n(G)/\Sigma_n$ of $n$ distinct points in $G$ is called the graph braid group of $n$ strands in $G$. After the pioneering work by Rob Ghrist [Ghr01], the structure of graph braid groups has been investigated by many people.A standard technique is to use Abrams' combinatorial model for $Conf_n(G)$ described in his thesis [Abr00] and then use discrete Morse theory to reduce the number of cells.Here we propose an alternative model based on the notion of cellular stratified spaces and its face categories, developed in [Tam]. Sample computations will be given based on the works [FMT15; Uno16] of former students of mine.

For a highest weight representation of a Kac-Moody algebra, corresponding crystal basis and crystal graph show some connections between representations and combinatorics.

In late 80's and early 90's, mathematicians found out a certain family of W-algebras which can be expressed mathematically. More precisely, for a given simple Lie algebra, we can define a related quantum W-algebra whose algebraic structure allows to describe a CFT. Moreover, a classical W-algebra (a classical limit of quantum W-algebras) and a finite W-algebras (finitization of a W-algebra) are widely studied in various fields of Mathematics. In this talk, I will introduce various kinds of W-algebras and explain why they are interesting.

After establishing a relationship between the moduli space $\mathcal{L}_{g, \mu}$ and the algebraic mapping stack of regular morphisms $Alg_{\mu}[\mathbb{P}^{1}, \overline{\mathcal{M}}_{g,n}]$ where $\overline{\mathcal{M}}_{g,n}$ is the Deligne--Mumford compactified stack of stable genus $g$ curves with $n$ markings, we examine the Deligne--Mumford stack $\mathcal{L}_{1, \mu}$ of moduli for holomorphic elliptic Lefschetz fibrations over $\mathbb{P}^{1}$ with $\mu = 12n$ number of irreducible singular fibers and a distinguished section. Looking at the moduli of weighted projective embeddings, we show that the cardinality of the set of $\mathbb{F}_q$--points with characteristic $\mathbb{F}_q \neq 2,3$ for $\mathcal{L}_{1, \mu}$ is bounded by $\frac{(q^{10\mu + 2}-q^{10\mu + 1})}{(q-1)} = q^{10\mu + 1} \le |\mathcal{L}_{1, {\mu} = 12n}(\mathbb{F}_q)| \le \frac{(q^{10{\mu} + 2}-1)}{(q-1)}$.

Our approach to the orientability problem is based entirely on the topology of real bundle pairs over symmetric surfaces. This allows us to endow the uncompactified moduli spaces of real maps from symmetric surfaces of all topological types with natural orientations and to verify that they extend across the codimension-one boundaries of these spaces. In reasonably regular cases, these invariants can be used to obtain lower bounds for counts of real curves of arbitrary genus. Joint work with A. Zinger.

Weyl's character formula and Freudenthal's formula provide ways to compute such weight multiplicities. However, it is hard to get practical closed formulas or to see properties of weight multiplicities.The crystal basis theory and it's related combinatorics, initiated by Kashiwara in the beginning of 1990, provide alternative ways to compute weight multiplicities. For example, by enumerating Kashiwara-Nakashima tableaux with a fixed weight, one can compute weight multiplicities. But the description of Kashiwara-Nakashima tableaux is somewhat complicated, and it is difficult to compute multiplicities by using Kashiwara-Nakashima tableaux in general.In a joint work with Kyu-Hwan Lee and Jangsoo Kim, we suggest new families of tableaux, called (spin) rigid tableaux, which are standard (skew) Young tableaux with some conditions and are equinumerous to weight multiplicities of certain infinite families of highest modules over finite dimensional simple Lie algebras of types B and D. Moreover, we can give explicit closed formulas for certain subfamilies. Interestingly, they form Pascal, Catalan, Motzkin, Riordan (newly defined by us) and Bessel triangular arrays.

Answers to this question have implications on the birational properties of the moduli spaces as well as symmetries in counting invariants. In this talk, I will consider this question for slope-stable torsion-free sheaves on the product elliptic threefold.

We call the closure of each B-orbit a Schubert variety of S.If S is of Picard number one, then S is associated to one simple root, say α. For this reason, we express S as the Dynkin diagram of G with the marking at α, or as the pair (type of G, α) simply. When S is associated to a long root, J. Hong and N. Mok proved that every smooth Schubert variety of S corresponds to a subdiagram of the marked Dynkin diagram of S. On the other hands, this result is not true for a short root case anymore. When S is associated to a short root, the classiﬁcation of smooth Schubert varieties of S is done except for S = (F4, α3) and (F4, α4).In this talk, we classify smooth Schubert varieties of S = (F4, α4). To do this, we ﬁrst introduce the way to regard the complex simple Lie groups of type E6 and F4 as subgroups of GL(27, C) and the relation between the the Cayley plane (E6, α1) and S. After describing the generating elements of Schubert varieties explicitely, we ﬁnd the geometric relation between Schubert varieties of the Cayley plane and those of S, and then we classify all of the smooth Schubert varieties of S of lower dimensions. To distinguish singular Schubert varieties of higher dimension, we compute a lower bound of the dimension of the Zariski tangent space of each of them at a base point.

In this talk, we provide a new perspective by showing that all the information in the deformation is encoded in the noncommutative (NC) parameter of open string theory. We conjecture that the deformed geometries are AdS/CFT dual to NC deformations of Yang-Mills, a statement we support by showing that the NC parameter from the field theory and geometry agree.

This happens in a combinatorially novel way, using the so-called interior polynomial I(G). There is an intermediate step in the computation of I(G) where we consider a particular set of vectors that I call ‘hypertrees’. It turns out that hypertrees can be identified with spin-c structures that support a certain sutured Floer homology group. Hence in effect we are computing Homfly coefficients from Floer theory. But hypertrees also represent, faithfully, the tight contact structures on the same sutured manifold (through their Euler classes). Thus we also get a contact topological interpretation of the same coefficients. I plan to mention joint results with A. Juhasz, D. Mathews, H. Murakami, A. Postnikov, and J. Rasmussen.

We show that there exists a sequence (Rn,ψn)(Rn,ψn) of fibers contained in the fibered cone of (S,ψ)(S,ψ) such that the asymptotic translation length of ψnψn on the curve complex (Rn)C(Rn) behaves asymptotically like 1/|χ(Rn)|21/|χ(Rn)|2. As an application, we can reprove the previous result by Gadre--Tsai that the minimal asymptotic translation lengths of a closed surface of genus gg are bounded below and above by C/g2C/g2 and D/g2D/g2 for some positive constants CC and DD, respectively. We also show that this also holds for the cases of hyperelliptic mapping class group and hyperelliptic handlebody group.

If $(X, \omega)$ is a Kahler manifold, then every fiber $X_y$ has a unique Ricci-flat Kahler metric whose associated Kahler form belongs to the fixed Kahler class $[\omega|]$ by Yau ‘s theorem. This family of Ricci-flat metrics induces the fiberwise Ricci-flat metric on a Calabi-Yau fibration.In this talk, we discuss positivity of direct images of fiberwise Ricci-flat metrics on the base $Y$.

In this talk I will state in brief the two constructions (of EPW squares and of EPW cubes) from the point of view of some results from our earlier paper arXiv:0907.2781 with Laurent Manivel, and will discuss the question to describe analogues of the EPW manifolds for other symplectic vector bundles.

We start from suggesting a conditional existence theorem of aCM vector bundle on any configuration of hyperplanes with multiplicities. Then we focus on the double plane. We show that any aCM vector bundle of rank two on the double plane splits, while this assertion is not extended to higher rank by a counterexample. Then we give the classification of aCM sheaves on the double plane up to rank 3/2. If time permits, we give a brief explanation about Ulrich sheaves on the double plane. This is a joint work with E. Ballico, F. Malaspina and J. Pons-Llopis.

When the topological space is a smooth manifold equipped with a proper smooth action of a Lie group, we give a localization formula to calculate the equivariant nalogue of this category in terms of the minimal orbit-type strata. The formula holds provided that the manifold admits a specific cover. We show that such a cover exists on every symplectic toric anifold. The known result stating that the LS-category of a symplectic toric manifold is equal to the number of fixed points of the torus action follows from our localization formula.

Especially, we will show that if a Hamiltonian on a certain class of symplectic manifolds has a non-contractible orbit, then the Hamiltonian must have infinitely many non-contractible orbits. Here we note that if we don't stick to the existence of "non-contractible" orbits, then the Conley conjecture, which is proven for many symplectic manifolds, already implies the existence of infinitely many (not necessarily non-contractible) orbits. The proof uses the Floer homology and the Eilenberg-MacLane spaces.

We investigate an entropy-type invariant, called the slow volume growth, of the component of ﬁbered twists and give a uniform lower bound of the growth using wrapped Floer homology. We apply our results to ﬁbered twists coming from the Milnor ﬁbers of Ak-singularities and complements of a symplectic hypersurface in a real symplectic manifold. They admit so-called real Lagrangians, and we can explicitly compute wrapped Floer homology using a version of Morse-Bott spectral sequences. This is joint work with Myeonggi Kwon and Junyoung Lee.

Sarkisov proved that for a cubic bundles there exists a smooth model. For del Pezzo fibrations smooth model may not exist in case degree <4. Corti has shown that there are Gorenstein (resp. 2-Gorenstein) models for del Pezzo fibrations of degree 3 (resp. 2). He proved it by constructing explicit birational maps improving singularities.

The Atiyah - Guillemin & Sternberg theorem [Ati82], [GS82], [GS84] uses the affine structure of the base space of the associated Lagrangian fibration to prove that the image the moment map is a convex polytope in $\mathbb{R}^n$.In almost-toric systems, one allows so-called focus-focus singularities to occur, which in turn destroys some of the $S^1$-actions. For these almost-toric systems, the affine structure becomes singular and the image of the moment map is not a convex polytope of Rn in general. We will discuss the notion of intrinsic convexity of the base space with respect to its (singular) affine structure and give local and global convexity results for the base space, as well as counter-examples.This is a joint project with Tudor Ratiu and Nguyen Tien Zung.References[Ati82] M.F.

In order to study the arithmetic of $X_0(N)$, we embed the curve into $J_0(N)$, the Jacobian of the curve $X_0(N)$. Hecke operators are certain endomorphisms of $J_0(N)$. We are interested in the actions of Hecke operators on reductions of $J_0(N)$ modulo various primes. In this talk, I will introduce these concepts more deeply. More specifically, I will pay much attention to the Deligne--Rapoport model of the reduction of $J_0(N)$ modulo $p$, i.e., the special fibre $J_0(N)_p$ over $p$ of the Néron model of $J_0(N)$ where $p$ exactly divides $N$.

Lindenstrauss showed that Bollobás' result is no longertrue for bounded linear operators and for that reason Acosta, Aron, García and Maestreintroduced the Bishop-Phelps-Bollobás property (the BPBp, for short) in order to getBollobás type theorems for operators.In this talk is we present the Bishop-Phelps-Bollobás property in different contexts.We give a historical resume with a motivation behind this property and very recent resultson this topic.

A Bott-Samelson variety $Z$ is an iterated sequence of $\mathbb{C} P^1$-bundles which has an action of the Borel subgroup $B\subset G$. For a given holomorphic line bundle $\mathcal L$ over $Z$, the set of holomorphic sections $H^0(Z,\mathcal L)$ is a $B$-module, called a generalized Demazure module. This gives a fruitful connection between representation theory and algebraic geometry: a character formula of $B$-modules, the standard monomial theory, and moreover the theory of Newton-Okounkov bodies. In this talk, we give an overview of this connection, especially, the theory of Newton-Okounkov bodies. And we introduce flag Bott-Samelson variety, which is a generalization of both Bott-Samelson variety and full flag variety. Furthermore we study Newton-Okounkov bodies of flag Bott-Samelson varieties. This talk is based on an on-going project with Naoki Fujita and Dong Youp Suh.

For any homotopy commutative algebra over a field k of characteristic zero, I will construct a representable functor from the homotopy category of dg commutative algebras over k to the category of groups (an affine dg group scheme) such that a quasi-isomorphism of homotopy commutative algebras is a natural isomorphism of the functors. These construction lead to a definition of pro-unipotent affine dg group scheme $G_X$ of X, such that $G_X(C)$ is isomorphic to the pro-unipotent fundamental group of X, as well as a higher homotopy generalization of Chen-Sullivan $\pi_1$ de Rham theorem. A program of quantization of $G_X$ will be sketched, whose starting point is deformation quantization of a homotopy commutative algebra over k to a topologically free homotopy associative algebra over k[[h]]. Such a quantization may lead to a construction of Frobenius manifold structure on the C-rational homotopy group of symplectic manifold.

In my talks I will recall the Beauville-Voisin theorem, and discuss generalizations in two different directions. One concerns cycles on families of K3 surfaces. Ideas and techniques from Gromov-Witten theory are applied to this setting, which eventually lead to the solution of the Marian-Oprea-Pandharipande conjecture on the tautological ring of the moduli spaces of K3 surfaces. The other connects curves and sheaves on K3 surfaces, bringing together the derived categories of K3 surfaces, cycles on K3 surfaces, and cycles on the moduli spaces of objects in the derived categories. Results in this direction include the proof of O’Grady’s conjecture, and applications to the Beauville-Voisin conjecture on the cycle ring of holomorphic symplectic varieties. The talks are based on joint work with Rahul Pandharipande, Junliang Shen, and Xiaolei Zhao.

Bldg. #404 DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Jun-Muk Hwang\n\nEvent: The Shokurovs : workshop for birationalists\n\nAbstract: Let $G/P$ be a rational homogeneous space of Picard number 1 and let $X$ be a Fano manifold of Picardnumber 1. The question we are interested in is: if the variety of minimal rational tangents at a general point of $X$ is isomorphic to that of $G/P$, is $X$ biholomorphic to $G/P$? An affirmative answer is given for $G/P$ associated with a long root in the works of Mok and Hong-Hwang in 2008. In these cases, Tanaka theory for parabolic geometry was used to handle the underlying differential geometric structures. The question has been open for the other $G/P$, i.e., symplectic Grassmannians or two cases of $F_4$-homogeneous spaces. The main difficulty in the remaining cases is that the underlying geometric structure is no longer a parabolic geometry and certain degenerate structures may occur. In a collaboration with Qifeng Li, we overcome this difficulty by constructing a Cartan connection associated to the geometric structure under the assumption that certain vector bundles arising from Spencer complexes do not have nonzero sections. Using this construction, we settle the case of symplectic Grassmannians.

More precisely, we provide sufficient conditions for semi-product proper holomorphic maps to be product proper. As an application we characterize proper holomorphic maps between equidimensional bounded symmetric domains.

Our starting point is an investigation on the relation between Lagrangian surgery of a pair of straight lines in a symplectic 2-torus and extension of holomorphic vector bundles over the mirror elliptic curve, via the SYZ transform for immersed Lagrangian multi-sections. This study leads us to a new notion of equivalence between objects in the immersed Fukaya category of a general compact symplectic manifold M, under which the immersed Floer cohomology is invariant; in particular, this provides an answer to a question of Akaho-Joyce, which concerning non-Hamiltonian invariant property of the immersed Floer cohomology. Furthermore, if M admits a Lagrangian torus fibration over an integral affine manifold, we prove that, under some additional assumptions, this new equivalence is mirror to isomorphism between holomorphic vector bundles over the dual torus fibration via the SYZ transform.

In particular, I will provide a simple and complete proof of results which are claimed in the existing literature but whose proofs are partially missing. The applications that will be discussed concern the uniqueness of higher categorical enhancements of 'geometric' triangulated categories and internal Homs of dg categories. The talk is based on joint work with A. Canonaco and joint work in progress with A. Canonaco and M. Ornaghi.

In the case of Schubert varieties, their Newton-Okounkov polytopes are deeply connected with representation theory. Indeed, Kaveh (resp., the speaker and Naito) proved that Berenstein-Littelmann-Zelevinsky's string polytope (resp., Nakashima-Zelevinsky's polyhedral realization of a highest weight crystal basis) is identical to the Newton-Okounkov polytope of a Schubert variety associated with a specific valuation.In this series of talks, after reviewing the theory of Newton-Okounkov polytopes and Kaveh's result on string polytopes, we see how these polytopes are related to polyhedral realizations of crystal bases. In addition, we discuss generalizations to Bott-Samelson varieties. This series of talks is based on the following papers:(1) N. Fujita, Newton-Okounkov bodies for Bott-Samelson varieties and string polytopes for generalized Demazure modules, preprint 2015, arXiv:1503.08916v2.(2) N. Fujita and S. Naito, Newton-Okounkov convex bodies of Schubert varieties and polyhedral realizations of crystal bases, Math.

We also see how Kaveh's result is generalized to Bott-Samelson varieties via generalized string polytopes.
