DESCRIPTION:Abstract\nHomogenization is a mathematical modelization of com
posite materials\, which gives a meaning to the effective properties of hi
ghly heterogeneous materials. It also explains the appearence of a lower o
rder term in the heat or diffusion equation in a domain with many small ho
les.\n\nThe main mathematical tools involved are the weak convergence\, wh
ich allows one to describe the effective behaviour of the various fields w
hich appear in partial differential equations\, and the compensated compac
tness theory.\n\nhttp://indico.ictp.it/event/a03403/

DESCRIPTION:Abstract: Certain inequalities which are fundamental in the st
udy of real analytic functions (Lojasiewicz inequalities) can be interpret
ed geometrically. In complex analytic geometry inequalities between modu
li of analytic functions correspond to certain algebraic relations. This
also gives rise to geometric interpretations of inequalities. The lectu
re will present some consequences of this\, and a geometric interpretation
of a version of Artin's approximation theorem.\n\nhttp://indico.ictp.it/e

DESCRIPTION:Abstract: Additive number theory studies the connection betwee
n a family of integral sequences and their sum\, i.e. the set of those int
egers which can be represented as sums of elements from the given family o
f sequences. \nIn "direct problems"\, the initial sequences are known and
the question is to get some knowledge on their sum\n Due to their history\
, "special direct problems" are the best known\, for example\, Goldbach's
problem (1742)\, not yet solved (worth one million dollars)\, stating that
every even integer larger than 2 is a sum of 2 primes\, or Waring's probl
em (1770)\, stating that every positive integer is a sum of four squares (
indeed solved during that same year 1770 by Lagrange)\, of nine cubes (sol
ved in 1909-1912 by Wieferich and Kemperman)\, of nineteen fourth powers (
solved in 1985 by Balasubramanian\, Deshouillers and Dress).\n L. Shnirel'
man introduced "general direct problems" in 1930 when he showed that if a
sequence is sufficiently rich (if it has a positive density)\, then every
integer is a sum of a bounded number of elements from this set. By this a
pproach\, joined to a "sieve" argument\, he gave a partial answer to Goldb
ach's problem and showed that every integer can be expressed as a sum of a
(uniformly) bounded number of primes.\n The works of Freiman and Kneser\,
in the 1950's\, opened the road to "inverse problems"\, where one tries a
nd get some knowledge on the summands from a knowledge on their sum (an ea
sy and basic example is the fact that if a finite set of integer with $k$
elements is doubled and leads to a sum-set with $2k-1$ elements\, then the
initial set is an arithmetic progression [as one easily checks\, the conv
erse statement is obvious]).\n This colloquium talk\, for which no special
knowledge is required\, is a guided tour through additive number theory\,
its result\, its method and its applications.\n\nhttp://indico.ictp.it/ev

DESCRIPTION:Abstract: A quiver is an oriented graph consisting of vertices
and arrows. One can construct the path algebras and their quotients of t
he quivers. This provides finite dimensional elementary algebras in an e
xhaustive way\, due to a well-known theorem of Gabriel. There is a dual a
nalogue for coalgebras given by Chin and Montgomery. A Hopf algebra is si
multaneously an algebra and a coalgebra in a compatible way. It is natura
l to construct Hopf algebras via quivers. We give a survey on this direct
ion and propose to classify finite dimensional pointed (resp. elementary)
Hopf algebras via quivers.\n\nhttp://indico.ictp.it/event/a04113/

DESCRIPTION:Abstract: Recently\, S.Agafonov and E.Ferapontov have introduc
ed a construction that allows to associate naturally to every system of pa
rtial differential equations of conservation laws a congruence of lines in
an appropriate projective space. In particular to hyperbolic systems of
Temple type\, there correspond congruences of lines that place in pencils
of lines. The language of Algebraic Geometry turns out to be very natural
in the study of these systems. In the talk\, after recalling the defini
tion and the basic facts on congruences of lines\, I will illustrate the A
gafonov-Ferapontov construction and some results of classification for the
Temple systems.\n\nhttp://indico.ictp.it/event/a04126/

Subsequently\, utilising both the Central Limit Theorem and Brun's sieve\,
Paul Erdos and Mark Kac proved a far reaching extension of of the Hardy-R
amanujan theorem. Thus Probabilistic Number Theory was born\, and it cont
inues to be an active area of research today. In this talk I will show th

ion of additive functions in subsets of the positive integers can be under
stood. In our approach there is no dependence on the Central Limit Theore
m. Also\, we use the bilateral Laplace transform (moment generating funct
ion) instead of the Fourier transform (characteristic function) that was
traditionally used. The talk will be accessible to non-experts.\n\nhttp:/

DESCRIPTION:Abstract:\n\nReciprocity theorems relate statements of the for
m "p is an n-adic residue of q" with reciprocal statements of the form "q
is an n-adic residue of p." There is an algebraic K-theory anologue of th
e reciprocity law\, which can be seen as a generalization of reciprocity i
n higher dimension. In this talk I will explain the results by Banaszak a
nd Kahn on this topic and propose a different approach for real number fie
lds at prime 2.\n\nhttp://indico.ictp.it/event/a04304/

ve existence of conformal metrics with constant $Q$-curvature under generi

functional is in general unbounded from above and from below\, we employ
topological methods and minimax schemes\, jointly with a compactness resul

DESCRIPTION:The Frobenius number N(a_1\, ...\, a_n)\, where the a_i are na
tural numbers (with no common divisor greater than 1) is the minimal integ
er\, such that itself and all greater integers are representable as linear
combinations x_1 a_1 + ... + x_n a_n with nonnegative integral coefficien
ts x_i .\nFor instance\, N(a\,b)=(a-1)(b-1). But for n > 2 there is no e
xplicit formula for N\, and even its growth rate for growing\na=(a_1\, ...
\, a_n) is unknown. The talk proves that it grows at least as sigma^(1+(1/
n-1)) and at most like (sigma)^2\, where sigma = a_1 + ... + a_n.\n\nBot
h boundary cases are attained for some directions of the vector a\, but th
e growth rate depends peculiarly on this direction. The average growth ra
te has been studied experimentally and the talk will present the empirical
mean values ( for sigma = 7\, 19\, 41\, 97 and 199). The observed rate is
(sigma)^P with p ~ 2 at the beginning\, declining to p ~ 1\,6 for sigm
a between 100 and 200. This confirms the author's conjecture of 1999 tha
t p tends to 1+1/(n-1) = 3/2 for large sigma.\n\nhttp://indico.ictp.it/e

DESCRIPTION:The purpose of this talk is to discuss a common property of c
ertain classes of quasilinear and semilinear differential equations\, name
ly: "a Lie point symmetry of the considered equation is a Noether symmetry
if and only if the equation parameters assume critical values".\nBy "Noet
her symmetry" we mean a variational or a divergence symmetry. As it is wel
l known\, the so-called critical exponent is found as the critical power f
or embedding theorems. It is also related to some numbers dividing the exi
stence and nonexistence cases for the solutions of differential equations\
, in particular of semilinear differential equations involving the Laplace
operator. We shall consider the Sobolev case and the Pohozhaev-Trudinger
case for some second order ODE: the general class studied by Clement-de Fi
gueiredo-Mitidieri\, involving the radial forms of PDEs containing the Lap
lace\, p-Laplace and k-Hessian opertors\, the Lane-Emden equation\, the Em
den-Fowler equation\, the Boltzmann equation\; the Lane-Emden system\, and
PDE: the semilinear polyharmonic equation in R^n and the Kohn-Laplace eq
uation on the Heisenberg group H^1.\nSince the Noether symmetry allows to
reduce by 2 the integration procedure of an ODE one can find explicitly th
e solutions corresponding to the Sobolev and Pohozhaev-Trudinger cases. Re
garding PDE\, we find via the Noether Theorem conservation laws for the cr
itical equations.\n\nhttp://indico.ictp.it/event/a06119/

a piecewise smooth function associated with the Laplace operator in an arb

where the function is smooth.\n\nRecently (for last 10 years) this problem
for elliptic operators of second order was studied in different works of
authors M.Taylor\, M.Pinsky\, L.Brandolini\, L.Colzani\, Sh.Alimov and oth
ers.\n\nThe main purpose of the lecture is to show that the same results a
re valid for elliptic operators of an arbitrary order m.\n\nhttp://indico.

DESCRIPTION:In this talk\, we will discuss the problem of finding metrics
with constant Q-curvature on a given closed Riemannian manifold (M\,g) wit
h dimension an arbitrary integer n≥3. This will be equivalent to solving
an n-th order elliptic PDE (if n is even) or an n-th order elliptic integ
ral equation (if n is odd) with exponential nonlinearity and variational s
tructure in both cases. However when the total integral of the Q-curvatur
e is large\, the Euler-Lagrange functional associated is unbounded from be
low\, implying that we have to find critical points of saddle point type.
Using a min-max scheme whose construction is based on concentration of vol
ume\, we solve the problem under general assumptions which are also confor
mally invariant.\n\nhttp://indico.ictp.it/event/a0729/

DESCRIPTION:A fundamental problem of geometric topology is to describe all
possible manifolds which are homotopy (simple homotopy) equivalent to a g
iven manifold X.\nThe set of equivalence classes form a structure set S(X)
which fits into the surgery exact sequence. To describe the set S(X) we
must know the set of normal invariants [x\,G/TOP]\, the surgery obstructio
n groups L_*(\\pi)\, and the assembly map $[X\,G/TOP]\\to L_*(\\pi)$. Th
e image of assembly map consists of elements that can be realized by norma
l maps of closed manifolds.\nIn this talk\, we describe relations between
assembly maps\, manifolds with filtration\, Browder-Quinn surgery obstruct
ion groups for stratified manifolds\, Browder-Livesay invariants\, and su
rgery spectral sequence. In particular\, we give geometrical description
of forbidden invariants in closed manifold surgery problem and consider s
everal examples.\n\nhttp://indico.ictp.it/event/a0742/

DESCRIPTION:Let $Y\\subset X$ be a closed manifold pair. A simple homotopy
equivalence $f:M\\to X$ of n-manifolds splits along the submanifold $Y$ i
f it is homotopy equivalent to a map which is a simple homotopy equivalenc
e on the transversal preimages of the submanifold and its compliment. In t
his situation the splitting obstruction groups $LS_*$ are well defined an
d provide an evident obstruction to existence a homeomorphism in the homot
opy class of a simple homotopy equivalence $f$. The splitting obstruction
groups closely relates to detecting what elements of the Wall surgery obs
truction group belong to the image of the assembly map. From the geometri
cal point of view the splitting obstruction is an obstruction to do surger
y inside the ambient manifold. We describe relations between surgery on ma
nifold and the splitting problem and give a generalization of the splittin
g theory to the case of filtered manifolds.\nWe discuss the applications
of the splitting theory to the classification of closed manifolds.\n\nhttp

DESCRIPTION:We consider the problem of prescribing the volume form of a sy
mplectic form compatible with a given almost-complex structure on a compac
t symplectic manifold. When the complex structure is integrable\, and the
manifold is therefore Kaehler\, this is the celebrated Calabi conjecture t
hat was solved by Yau 30 years ago. Donaldson has recently conjectured tha
t in dimension 4 the equation is still solvable\, and has shown that this
would have striking consequences in symplectic topology. In a joint work w
ith Ben Weinkove and Shing-Tung Yau we show that the necessary a priori es
timates can be reduced to an integral estimate of a scalar function\, and
that the conjecture holds under a positive curvature condition.\n\nhttp://

DESCRIPTION:In 1957 Erd\\"os studied trigonometric polynomials with all co
efficients of absolute value 1 (called unimodular polynomials)and was led
to the conjecture that the the maximum modulus of a unimodular polynomial
of degree n is at least (1+c)\\sqrt(n) for some positive absolute constant
c. This conjecture was disproved by Littlewood in 1966 and\, on the basi
s of numerical evidence\, Littlewood conjectured that there are unimodular
polynomials that deviate by o(\\sqrt{n}) from its mean-square value \\sqr
t{n+1}. The existence of such polynomials\, of any given degree\, was prov
ed by Kahane in 1980 using probabilistic methods\, obtaining a remainder t
erm of O(n^{1/2-1/17}\\sqrt{log n}).\n\nIn this lecture it will be given a
new construction of these\npolynomials with the improved remainder term O
(n^{1/2-1/9+epsilon})\, first using probabilistic methods\, and then with
an explicit construction. The explicit construction makes use of Deligne'
s Riemann hypothesis for L-functions over varieties in positive characteri
stic associated to mixed exponential sums in arbitrarily many variables\,
as well as of sieves and recent results about gaps between squarefree numb

DESCRIPTION:We build a mathematical theory of level sets of ''smooth'' rea
l functions and surfaces.\n\nSimilar results were obtained in the 1970s in
Gamma-lines theory for an important but particular class of harmonic func
tions. In turn\, Gamma-lines theory is similar to Nevanlinna theory of val
ue distribution of meromorphic functions.\n\nStudies have progressed as fo
llows. The classical Nevanlinna deficiency relation was transferred into G
amma-lines theory and in this paper we establish an analogous assertion fo
r real functions and surfaces.\n\nIt is therefore becoming apparent that N
evanlinna type phenomena have rather universal character in mathematics si
nce the phenomena now have corresponding varieties in complex analysis\, i
n real analysis and in geometry.\n\nSince the level sets admit interpretat
ions in many applied sciences\, one can hope that the new theory will be u
seful in applications.\n\nNote that in physics\, for instance\, the level
set can be an isoterm\, isobar\, potential line\, streaming line\, or a se
t where chemical\, oil\, or radiation pollution have the same constant val
ue.\n\nhttp://indico.ictp.it/event/a07124/

DESCRIPTION:Abstract: Let f be a Morse-Bott function on a compact orien

a perturbation technique approximating any Morse-Bott function by a Morse
function show immediately that if MB_t(f) is the Morse-Bott polynomial o
f f \, and P_t(M) is the Poincare polynomial of M \, there exists a pol
ynomial R(t) such that MB_t(f) = P_t(M) + (1+t)R(t). We prove that R(
t) is a polynomial with non-negative integer coefficients\, using the Mor
se Homology Theorem\, and by studying the ranks of the kernels of the diff
erentials of the Morse-Smale-Witten complexes of the Morse functions invol
ved in the approximation scheme.\nOur method works when all the critical s
ubmanifolds are oriented or when Z_2 coefficients are used. Our proof is
much more direct than all previous proofs.\nThis is a joint work with Da

X x X\, where X is a set and r is a bijection\, a line of study proposed b
y Drinfeld. Solutions extend linearly to very special linear solutions but
also lead to a great deal of combinatorics\, and to algebras with very ni
ce algebraic and homological properties including those relating to Artin-
Schelter regularity\, Koszulity\, being Noetherian domain\, the existence
of noncommutative Groebner bases.\nWe extend our recent work on set-theore
tic solutions of the Yang-Baxter or braid relations with new results about
their automorphism groups\, strong twisted unions of solutions and multip
ermutation solutions. We introduce and study graphs of solutions and use o
ur graphical methods for the computation of solutions of finite order and
their automorphisms. Results include a detailed study of solutions of mult

DESCRIPTION:Professor Lauret is the recipient of the 2007 Ramanujan Prize
for Young Mathematicians from Developing Countries.\n\nAbstract:\nThe cons
truction of Einstein Riemannian metrics on manifolds is a classical proble
m in differential geometry and general relativity. General existence and
non-existence results are hard to obtain\, and it is a natural simplificat
ion to impose additional symmetry assumptions.\nIn this talk\, we will fir
st give an elementary introduction to the study of G-orbits and the orbit
space V/G\, for a subgroup G of the group of invertible linear maps GL(V)\
, where V is a real finite dimensional vector space. Strong results from
this theory will then be applied to the study of Einstein manifolds admitt
ing certain transitive groups of symmetries.\n\nhttp://indico.ictp.it/even

DESCRIPTION:The inability of classical models of plasticity to model mater
ial behaviour at nano-meso scale levels has led to the development of new
theories which incorporate size-dependence via the inclusion of strain gra
dients. In this talk\, we first revisit the formulation of the classical
models\; then we present some of the new models and we discuss the well-po
sedness of the intial boundary value problems obtained from these methods.

DESCRIPTION:The objective decision whether a given sequence consists of ra
ndom or of non-random numbers is not easy\, but Kolmogorov published (in I
talian) a paper on this problem in an insurance statistics journal (G. ist
. ital. attar. 1933). \nThe randomness measure introduced in that paper su
ggests that the geometric progressions like \n03\, 09\, 27\, 81\, 43\, 29\
, 87\, 61\, 83\, 49\, 47\, 41\, 23\, 69\, 07 \nare more random than the ar
ithmetical ones like \n37\, 74\, 11\, 48\, 85\, 22\, 59\, 96\, 33\, 70\, 0
7\, 44\, 81\, 18\, 55. \nFor the arithmetical progressions of fractional p
arts\, whose difference is a rational number\, the randomness parameter te
nds to zero when the length of the progression grows. \nThere exist irrati
onal differences for which the randomness parameters of long arithmetical
progressions of fractional parts do not tend to zero and whose behaviour i
s unknown for almost all values of the difference because of some unsolved
problems of the statistics of continued fractions. \nThe most known use o
f the Kolmogorov Italian paper to practical problems was his 1940 study of
the attempts by Lyzenko to reject the Mendel law of genetics\, which was
based on the empirically observed difference between the experimental data
and the prediction of Mendel's law. \nKolmogorov proved that the experien
ces of the Lyzenko school confirmed the Mendel law rather than reject it:
a smaller difference between the theory and the experiment would be a proo
f of the falsification of the experimental data. \nThese conclusions of Ko
lmogorov were\, however\, unpublished\, since the classical genetic expert
s answered to Lyzenko by their own experimental data\, whose difference wi
th Mendel's prediction were minimal.\n\nhttp://indico.ictp.it/event/a07321

DESCRIPTION:Which values may attain the number $M$ of the connected compon
ents of the complement to $n$ distinct straight lines in the real plane?\n
For $n=4$ the possible numbers of components are (5\, 8\, 9\, 10\, 11)\, b
ut the general problem for $n$ straight lines is unsolved.\nNamely\, betwe
en the minimal number of components\, $n+1$\, and\nthe maximal one\, $(n^2
+n+2)/2$\, there are gaps formed by the\nunattainable numbers.\nThe first
gap is $n+1C(k)$). For the unstable values of $n$\, the $k$-th gap may be small
er than the stable answer. Its exact boundary is unknown even for the 3-rd
gap (where the stability starts from $n=14$ straight lines).\nIn real alg
ebraic geometry even the simplest problems are difficult (and even the con
tribution of Hilbert to his 16-th problem\, discussing these questions\, w
as wrong).\n\nhttp://indico.ictp.it/event/a085/

DESCRIPTION:Random permutations of N elements have peculiar statistics of
the lengths of the cycles (discovered by V.L. Gontcharov\, 1942).\n\nThe n
umber of the cycles of a random permutation of N points grows with\nN (in
the mean) as 1+ 1/2 +1/3 + … + 1/N ~ 0\,58 + ln N.\nThe Fibonacci cat
map is the action of the matrix [ ] permuting the n^2 points of the finit
e torus Z/nZ x Z/nZ. Such algebraically defined permutations have quite di
fferent statistics (from that of the random ones).\n\nExample: Some permut
ations of 100 points have periods exceeding 230 million.\n\nThe length of
the period of the cat map\, permuting 150x150 pixels\, is only 300. The st
udy of similar examples (begun in the 1990s by I. Persival and F. Dyson)
has led to unexpected mathematical theorems.\n\nExample: The number of tho
se permutations of 2N points\, all whose cycles are of even length\, is a
square of an integer\, namely\, of (2N-1)!! =1.3.5…..(2N-1).\n\nhttp://i

DESCRIPTION:A vector of the space of integers $\\Z^n$ $(n>1)$ is called di
visible if it is the product of some other vector of this space by an inte
ger greater than 1.\n\nThe uniform distribution of a set $M$ in the $n$-di
mensional integer space means that for any domain the number of points of
$M$ in this domain\, dilated homothetically with homothety coefficient $N$
is asymptotically proportional to the volume of this domain\, multiplied
by $N^n$. The proportionality coefficient is called the density of $M$.\n\
nTHEOREM. The set $M$ of the nondivisible vectors of $\\Z^n$ (n>1) is dis
tributed there uniformly with density $1/\\zeta(n)$\, where $\\zeta$ is th
e Euler zeta function.\n\nExample. The density of the set of nondivisible
vectors in the plane lattice equals $1/\\zeta(2)=6/\\pi^2\\approx 2/3$.\n

DESCRIPTION:The variety parametrizing twisted representations with values
in a reductive group G of the fundamental group of a Riemann surface has a
natural structure of affine smooth variety\, and\, as such\, has a mixe
d Hodge structure\, recently investigated by Hausel and Rodriguez-Villeg
as.\nBy Hitchin theory\, this variety is diffeomorphic to the moduli spa
ce of semistable principal bundles with a Higgs field.\nThis moduli space
has a natural proper map\, the Hitchin fibration\, with target a linear sp
ace. We conjecture that the weight filtration of the cohomology of the cha
racter variety coincides with a filtration naturally associated to the top
ology of the Hitchin fibration.\nWe will discuss some evidence for this co
njecture and a strategy.\nJoint work with M. de Cataldo(SUNY) and T.Hausel

DESCRIPTION:Abstract:\n\nWe describe explicitly non-negative extremals for
the Sobolev inequality on the seven dimensional quaternionic Hesenberg gr
oup and determine the best constant in the $L^2$ Folland-Stein embedding t
heorem involving quaternionic contact geometry and the Biquard connection.
Consequently\, we obtain a solution of the quaternionic contact Yamabe pr
oblem on the quaternionic seven sphere. We show that the torsion of the B
iquard connection is the only obstruction quaternionic contact structure t
o be locally isomorphic to a 3-Sasakian one. We define a curvature-type te
nsor invariant called quaternionic contact (qc) conformal curvature in te
rms of the curvature and torsion of the Biquard connection. The discovered
tensor is similar to the Weyl conformal curvature in Riemannian geometry
and to the Chern-Moser invariant in CR geometry. We show that a quaternion
ic contact manifold is locally qc conformal (gauge equivalent) to the stan
dard flat quaternionic contact structure on the quaternionic Heisenberg gr
oup\, or equivalently\, to the standard 3-sasakian structure on the sphere
if and only if the qc conformal curvature vanishes.\n\nhttp://indico.ictp

f $B$. We say that a set has small sumset if the cardinality of $B+B$ is n
ot much larger in compare to the cardinality of $B.$\nIn a joint work with
R. Balasubramanian and D.S. Ramana\, we observe that in certain groups\,
the question of counting the total number of sum-free sets is related to t
he question of counting the number of sets with small sumset.\n\nIn anothe
r work\, we obtain an upper bound for the number of sets with small sumset
. Using this one obtain an upper bound for the number of sum-free sets in
a finite abelian groups of "type III" which is substantially better than t
he bound implied by the result of Ben Green and Imre Ruzsa.\n\nMoreover us
ing this\, one also obtain an existence of Ramsey graphs among Cayley grap

DESCRIPTION:The nonlinear Schroedinger equation appears in several physica

whose profile remains unchanged under the evolution in time.\nFor the phys
ical applications\, it is essential to know the stability properties of wa
ves with respect to perturbations. It is also important to understand the
nature of any potential instability.\n\nThe talk will start by a review of
classical results on nonlinear Schroedinger equations and their standing
waves. Then we will discuss stability and instability issues. Finally\, we
will present recent stability/instability results on a nonlinear Schroedi
nger equation\nperturbed by a Dirac potential.\n\nhttp://indico.ictp.it/ev

DESCRIPTION:We investigate critical points of several natural functions on
the configuration space of polygonal linkage. The main attention is given
to the signed area A and electrostatic potential E considered as function
s on the planar configuration space C(L) of a generic polygonal linkage L.
The following three settings will be discussed in some detail.\n\nFirstly
\, we consider A as a function on C(L) and show that its critical points a
re given by the cyclic configurations of L (as usual a configuration is ca
lled cyclic if it can be inscribed in a circle\, i.e.\, there exists a poi
nt in the reference plane equidistant from all vertices of L). We also sho
w that\, generically\, A is a Morse function and find the Morse indices of
cyclic configurations. This\, in particular\, enables us to obtain useful
information about C(L) by merely examining the cyclic configurations of L
\, which can be effectively done in many cases.\n\nNext\, we consider A as
a function on the configuration space of an n-arm (open polygonal n-chain
) and show that its critical points are again given by the cyclic configur
ations. In this case the structure of critical points can be more complica
ted and we'll illustrate certain typical phenomena by concrete examples.\n
\nSimilar results hold for electrostatic potential E on the planar configu
ration space of polygonal linkages satisfying some additional conditions w
hich guarantee boundedness of E.\n\nThe same problems become drastically m
ore complicated in the case of spatial linkage and we'll end by presenting
a few conjectures and open problems arising in this context.\n\nhttp://in

DESCRIPTION:The Levi curvatures of a real hypersurfaces of C^{n+1} are rel
ated to the Levi form the way the usual Mean or Gauss curvatures are relat
ed to the real Hessian form.\nThey were implicitly introduced by Bedford a
nd Gaveau in 1978\, and more explicitly\, in the case n=1\, by Tomassini
in 1988.\nLater on\, Montanari and Lanconelli extended these notions to an
y dimension\, following the lines of the works by Caffarelli\, Nirenberg
and Spruck on the real Monge-Ampere equations. Montanari and Lanconelli sh
owed that\, for hypersurface graphs on real functions\, the Levi curvature
s can be expressed in terms of second order fully nonlinear PDO's with an
underlying sub-Riemannian structure. The properties of these structures a
llowed one to obtain:\n1) A strong comparison principle for hypersurfaces
having the same Levi curvatures\;\n2) Isoperimetric inequalities\;\n3) Al
exandrov-type sphere theorems\;\n4) Existence theorems of Lipschitz-contin
uous viscosity solutions to the prescribed Levi-curvature problems\n5) (
only for n=1) Smoothness of the Lipschitz-continuous viscosity solutions.\
nThe results in 3) and 5) only give partial answers to problems which are
still largely open.\n\nhttp://indico.ictp.it/event/a09123/

DESCRIPTION:It is well-known that certain matrix solutions of the braid or
Yang-Baxter equations lead to braided categories\, knot invariants\, quan
tum groups and other important constructions. However\, these equations ar
e also very interesting at the level of set maps $r:X\\times X\\to X\\time
s X\,$ where X is a set and r is a bijection\, a line of study proposed by
Drinfeld. Solutions extend linearly to very special linear solutions but
also lead to a great deal of combinatorics\, and to algebras with very nic
e algebraic and homological properties including those relating to Artin-S
chelter regularity\, Koszulity\, being a PBW Noetherian domain\, and the e
xistence of noncommutative Groebner bases.\n\nIn this talk I will examine
solutions mainly from the point of view of finite permutation groups: a s
olution gives rise to a map from X to the symmetric group $Sym(X)$ on X sa
tisfying certain conditions.\n\nOur results include many new constructions
based on strong twisted union and wreath product\, with an investigation
of retracts and the multipermutation level and the solvable length of the
groups defined by the solutions\; and new results about decompositions and
factorisations of the groups defined by invariant subsets of the solution
.\nThis talk is based on a joint work with Peter Cameron.\n\nhttp://indico

DESCRIPTION:A Kakutani-von Neumann map is the push-forward of the group ro
tation (Z_2\,+1) to a unit simplex via an appropriate topological quotient
. The usual quotient towards the unit interval is given by the base 2 expa
nsion of real numbers\, which in turn is induced by the doubling map.\n\nW
e replace the doubling map with an n-dimensional generalization of the ten
t map\; this allows us to define Kakutani-von Neumann transformations in s
implexes of arbitrary dimensions. The resulting maps are piecewise-linear
bijections (not just mod 0 bijections)\, whose orbits are all uniformly di
stributed\; in particular\, they are uniquely ergodic w.r.t. the Lebesgue
measure.\n\nThe forward orbit of a certain vertex provides an enumeration
of all points in the simplex having dyadic coordinates\, and this enumerat
ion can be translated via the n-dimensional Minkowski function to an enume
ration of all rational points. In the course of establishing the above res
ults\, we introduce a family of {+1\,-1}-valued functions\, constituting a
n n-dimensional analogue of the classical Walsh functions.\nPaper referenc

DESCRIPTION:In EUROCRYPT 2009\, Galbraithh\, Lin and Scott constructed eff
iciently computable endomorphisms for a large family of elliptic curves de
fined over finite fields of large characteristic. The scalar multiplicati
on on GLS curves can be accelerated while the GLV method is applied.\nIn t
his talk\, we introduce our recent work on extending the method to the Jac
obians of genus 2 hyperelliptic curves defined over binary fields. We giv
e explicit formulae of endomorphisms on the Jacobians for the twisted curv
es of every isomorphism class of genus 2 hyperelliptic curves over binary
fields. We investigate the benefits of fast scalar multiplication using v
arious simultaneous scalar multiplication methods and show a speedup for u
p to 40% for a 256-bit scalar multiplication comparing with the best gener
al ordinary methods.\n\nhttp://indico.ictp.it/event/a10197/

DESCRIPTION:The problem of closed geodesics is a traditional and\nimportan

anding conjecture that there exist infinitely many distinct closed geodesi
cs on every compact Riemannian manifold. The current interest on this prob
lem is on compact simply connected manifolds\, specially spheres. So far n
ot much is known on the multiplicity of closed geodesics on such manifolds
when their dimensions are at least 3. Recently\, Professor Yiming Long an
d myself have proved the following\n\nTheorem: There exist at least two di
stinct closed geodesics on every compact simply connected Riemannian (or F
insler) manifold whose dimension is at least 2.\n\nIn this talk\, I shall
give a survey on the study of the problem of closed geodesics and explain
some main ideas in the proof of the above theorem.\n\nhttp://indico.ictp.i

te extreme events also known as disasters\, crises\, or critical transitio

ts in four complex systems: economic recessions\, surges in homicides in a
megacity\, magnetic storms and strong earthquakes. We use as a starting p
oint the indicators describing the system's behavior and identify changes
in an indicator's trend. Those changes constitute our background events (B
E). We demonstrate a premonitory pattern common to all four systems consid
ered: relatively large magnitude BEs become more frequent before extreme e
vent. A premonitory change of scaling has been found in various models and
observations. Here we demonstrate this change in scaling of uniformly def
ined BEs in four real complex systems\, their enormous differences notwith
standing.\n\nhttp://indico.ictp.it/event/a10242/

DESCRIPTION:There is a long tradition in algebraic theory to investigate t

eir cohomology and homology. More recently\, representations of Lie triple
systems has been given by using the symmetric bundles. It is well known t
hat\, Lie triple systems appear as particular Bol algebras. Today\,in some
sense\, a structure theory of Bol algebras is given. In this paper\, the
category of Bol algebras is firstly studied. Secondly\, after using the no
tion of Bol modules\, the construction of representations of Bol algebras
is obtained. We also investigate the dual representations of Bol algebras
and\, give the duality principle for such algebras.\n\nhttp://indico.ictp.

DESCRIPTION:We develop a new mathematical model for describing a dynamical
system at limited resolution (or finite scale)\, and we give precise mean
ing to the notion of a dynamical system having some property at finite res
olution. Open covers are used to approximate the topology of the phase spa
ce in a finite way\, and the dynamical system is represented by means of a
combinatorial multivalued map. We formulate notions of transitivity and m
ixing in the finite resolution setting in a computable and consistent way.
Moreover\, we formulate equivalent conditions for these properties in ter
ms of graphs\, and provide effective algorithms for their verification. As
an application we show that the H'enon attractor is mixing at all resolut
ions coarser than 10^-5.\n\nhttp://indico.ictp.it/event/a10321/

DESCRIPTION:We will consider the behavior of the time which is needed for
a typical point to enter in a sequence of decreasing targets. In several s
ystems this time increases (having the same scaling behavior) as the inver
se of the measure of the targets. We will see that a general condition for
this to happen is superpolynomial decay of correlations. We will also see
some applications\, on the geometric Lorenz flow and geodesic flows in va
riable negative curvature. On the other side there are translations of the
torus having particular arithmetical properties where the time needed to
enter in a given sequence of balls increases much faster than the inverse
of the ball’s measure. By a construction of Fayad\, moreover we can also
show smooth\, mixing examples of the same kind.\n\nhttp://indico.ictp.it/

DESCRIPTION:A real matrix is Hurwitz if its eigenvalues have negative real

l Global Asymptotic Stability Problem (BGAS): Let X be a C1 planar vector
field whose derivative DX(p) is Hurwitz for almost all point p in the plan
e. Then the singularity set of X\, Sing(X)\, is either an emptyset\, a one
-point set or a non-discrete set. Moreover\, if Sing(X) contains a hyperbo
lic singularity then X is topologically equivalent to the radial vector fi
eld (x\,y)->(-x\,-y). This generalises BGAS to the case in which the vecto
r field is not necessarily a local diffeomorphism. Joint work with Roland

DESCRIPTION:Abstract:\nWe investigate the stochastic equation for the moti

lobal existence of probabilistic weak solutions (and weak in the sense of
partial differential equations) is expounded. We are also able to prove th
e pathwise uniqueness of solution. The two results yield the unique existe
nce of probabilistic strong solution. On this basis we show that under sui
table conditions on the data we can construct a sequence of solutions of t
he stochastic second grade fluid that converges to the probabilistic weak
solution of the stochastic Navier-Stokes equations when the physical param
eter α tends to zero. This is a joint work with Prof Mamadou Sango (Depar

DESCRIPTION:Abstract:\nF. Lalonde and L. Polterovich study the isometries
of the group of Hamiltonian diffeomorphisms with respect to the Hofer metr
ic. They defined a symplectic diffeomorphism ψ to be bounded\, if the Hof
er norm of [ψ\, h] remains bounded as h varies on Ham(M\, ω). The set of
bounded symplectic diffeomorphisms\, BI0 (M)\, of (M\, ω) is a group tha
t contains all Hamiltonian diffeomorphisms.\nThey conjectured that these t
wo groups are equal\, Ham(M\, ω) = BI0 (M\, ω) for every closed symplect
ic manifold. They prove this conjecture in the case when the symplectic ma
nifold is a product of closed surfaces of positive genus. In this talk we
give an outline of a new class of manifolds for which bounded isometry con

DESCRIPTION:Skew products over topological Markov chains naturally appear
when one attempts to apply the methods of classical dynamical systems to r

ding what "typical" skew products look like. During the last 30 years ther
e appeared several papers studying the skew products with a circle fiber.
I will talk about the case when the fiber is an interval\, and fiber maps
are orientation-preserving diffeomorphisms.\n\nIn the work joint with V.Kl
eptsyn\, we developed a theorem which gives us a complete* description of
the dynamics of typical step skew products (fiber map depends only on a si
ngle symbol in the base sequence). For generic skew products\, we obtained
a similar result using an additional assumption of partial-hyperbolic nat
ure.\n\n*except some subset which projects onto zero measure set in the ba

DESCRIPTION:The spectral unit ball of dimension n^2 is the set of all n\\t

prominence in linear control-theory circles because the Pick-Nevanlinna i
nterpolation problem on it is very challenging. A first step in solving th
is problem would be to solve the 2-point problem\, i.e. to produce a Schwa
rz lemma for the spectral unit ball. This is hard because the spectral uni
t ball is non-homogeneous when n>1\, but there have been some recent resul
ts which we shall discuss. The complex geometry of the spectral unit ball
in n^2 (n>1) is interesting because GL(n\,C) acts non-trivially on it by c
onjugation. We shall discuss how this feature points to the prospect of a
sharp Schwarz lemma.\n\nhttp://indico.ictp.it/event/a1185/

pairs of Calabi-Yau manifolds. The constructions are defined by counts o
f pseudoholomorphic curves in a symplectic manifold\, with Lagrangian subm
anifolds as boundary conditions. The recent pseudoholomorphic quilt theor
y of Wehrheim and Woodward incorporates Lagrangian correspondences as addi
tional boundary conditions\, so that pseudoholomorphic quilts transition b
etween pseudoholomorphic curves in one symplectic manifold to pseudoholomo
rphic curves in another. I will explain how this leads to constructions o
f A-infinity bimodules associated to Lagrangian correspondences\, and an e

DESCRIPTION:It is well-known results proved by E.M. Stein (1976 for the ca
se $n\\ge3$) and J. Bourgain (1985 for the case $n=2$) that the spherical
maximal operator is bounded on $L^p({\\Bbb R}^n)$ if and only if $p>n/(n-1
)$. Further\, the bounded-ness problem had been considered by many authors
for more general hypersurfaces. The problem is connected to the geometric
properties of the surface.\nThere is still the open conjecture of E.M. St
ein about connection between the decay rate of the associated oscillatory
integrals and the exponent $p$ such that the maximal operator is bounded o
n $L^p({\\Bbb R}^n)$. Following A.N. Varchenko we introduce notion of "hei
ght" of hyper-surface at a point. This notion allows us to obtain the shar
p exponent of boundedness for the maximal operator defined by any smooth h
ypersurface in $L^p({\\Bbb R}3)$.\nIn particular\, we get a confirmation o
f the E.M. Stein conjecture for arbitrary two-dimensional smooth hypersurf
aces. In the talk we also give some estimates for related oscillatory inte
grals with smooth phase functions.\n\nhttp://indico.ictp.it/event/a11281/

on the complex structure parameters. As we will see\, these numbers are
given by expressions which involve the periods of the manifold. I will dis
cuss the form of zeta function of the Dwork pencil of quintic 3-folds and\
, time permitting\, we will see what happens at singularities and speculat
e about what mirror symmetry has to say about the form of the zeta functio
n.\n\nhttp://indico.ictp.it/event/a12137/

These are partially classified by the Hodge numbers (h^11\, h^21). A plot
of these numbers reveals interesting structure\, for the case that the Ho
dge numbers are large. I will 'explain' some of this structure in terms o
f the fibration structure of the manifolds.\nAt the other end of the distr
ibution\, finding manifolds with small Hodge numbers seems to be synonymou
s with finding manifolds with large groups of freely acting symmetries. T
hese seem to be rare. I will discuss some constructions of what may be th
e simplest Calabi-Yau manifolds.\n\nhttp://indico.ictp.it/event/a12147/

DESCRIPTION:In Lie symmetry analysis\, linearization is the conversion of
a (system of) differential equations to linear form\, provided there exist
s a transformation of the independent and dependent variables that can do
so. Lie provided criteria for determining if and when second order scalar
ODEs could be so transformed. Considerably later the methods were extended
to special classes of third order scalar ODEs. Only recently was there si
gnificant progress in this direction. It included the general third and fo
urth order scalar ODEs and some general results were proved for nth order
SCALAR ODEs about the classes of such ODES\, and some general results abou
t classes of linearizable second order systems of ODEs. Many more advances
have been made more recently by the use of geometry and complex analysis
for the purpose. Further\, without actually linearizing the system of equa
tions linearization has been used to provide their solution. In this talk
these developments will be reviewed.\n\nhttp://indico.ictp.it/event/a12260

"refined Severi degree"\, replacing the degree of the Severi variety by a
univariate polynomial. We give a (conjectural) interpretation of these in
variants for plane curves in terms of tropical geometry: Goettsche and She
nde's invariant is computed by enumeration of tropical curves\, weighted b
y a new (Laurent) polynomial multiplicity. This weight specializes to Mikh
alkin's 'complex' and 'real' multiplicity of tropical curves.\n\nThis is j

DESCRIPTION:Abstract:In the early 80’s\, V. Mehta and A. Ramanathan prov
ed two restriction theorems which proved to be of central importance to th
e study of vector bundles in the subsequent years. The theorems roughly st
ate that if X is a smooth projective variety over a field k = k with a pol
arisation H and V is a vector bundle on it which is semistable (resp. stab
le) w.r.t. H\, then the restriction of V to a general\, complete intersect
ion curve of sufficiently high degree is again semistable (resp stable).\n
I will explain these theorems in detail and sketch a proof in some special
cases. If time permits some applications will also be discussed.\n\nhttp:

DESCRIPTION:The study of an almost Ricci soliton was introduced in a recen

nts a generalization to Einstein metrics and Ricci soliton\, they appear a
s special solutions of the Ricci flow. In this seminar we shall talk about
two results. The first treats of the characterization of compact almost R
icci solitons \, more precisely\, in this work we find some structure equa
tions for almost Ricci solitons which generalize the equivalent for Ricci
solitons. As a consequence of these equations we derive an integral formul
a for the compact case which enables to show that a compact nontrivial alm
ost Ricci soliton is isometric to a sphere\, provided either it has consta
nt scalar curvature or its associated vector eld is conformal. Next\, we p
rove that any compact almost Ricci soliton with constant scalar curvature
is isometric to a Euclidean sphere. As a consequence we obtain that every
compact almost Ricci soliton with constant scalar curvature is gradient.\n

ircle maps (the so called "rigidity" theory)\, in the context of three imp
ortant classes: diffeomorphisms\, critical maps\, and maps with a break po
int.\nFor circle maps with a break point\, we will discuss two recent resu
lts that were obtained in the rigidity theory of circle maps with a break
point.\nThe first main result is a proof that C^1 rigidity holds for circl
e maps with a break point for almost all irrational rotation numbers. This
result is joint work with Kostya Khanin and Sasa Kocic.\nThe second main
result has to do with the family of fractional linear transformation (FLT)
pairs. An FLT-pair T is a circle homeomorphism that consists of two branc
hes each of which is an FLT. Such a map can be viewed as a circle map with
two neighbouring break points lying on the same orbit. For this family\,
C^1 rigidity holds for all irrational rotation numbers without any restric
tion (the so-called "robust rigidity").\n\nhttp://indico.ictp.it/event/a13

DESCRIPTION:Developed by Denef-Loeser more than one decade ago\, motivic M
ilnor fiber was a power tool to study singularities from the point of view
of motivic integration. Especially\, the impressive appearance of Kontsev
ich-Soibelman's theory of motivic Donaldson-Thomas invariants around 2008
two of whose foundations are the conjectural integral identity and the mot
ivic Thom-Sebastiani theorem once again proves the importance of motivic M
ilnor fiber in different fields of mathematics. Recently\, after works of
Hrushovski-Loeser\, one can describe motivic Milnor fiber in a more model-
theoretical way. I used this new description to prove the integral identit
y conjecture for algebraically closed fields. More recently\, during my vi
sit at the ICTP in October 2013\, using the same method\, I was able to re
cover the motivic Thom-Sebastiani theorem. We shall introduce how to prove
these results in the talk. Some comments on open problems concerning moti
vic Milnor fiber will be also given.\n\nhttp://indico.ictp.it/event/a13363

DESCRIPTION:Given an orthonormal basis {e_n} in a de Branges space (a cert
ain Hilbert space of entire functions)\, and i.i.d. random variables {a_n}
with real normal distribution N(0\,1)\, we consider the Gaussian Analytic
Function:\n\nF(z)=\\sum_n a_n e_n(z).\n\nIn this talk\, we will present s
ome results on the distribution of the real zeroes of F(z). It is natural
that this random set contains information about the underline Hilbert spac
e. We will see that this information is enough to characterize\, up to som
e nice isomorphism\, the de Branges space. We will also show some partial
results on the hole probability. We will pay special attention to the Pale
y-Wiener space\, and the spaces associated to the Airy and Bessel function
s\, because these three spaces also appear in point processes related to r
andom matrices.This talk is based on a joint work with Jordi Marzo and Ja
n-Fredrik Olsen.\n\nhttp://indico.ictp.it/event/a14130/

DESCRIPTION:Tropical geometry has nowadays several\, different facets rela

imization\, low-dimensional topology\, knot theory and physics.\nIn the co

c geometry by combinatorial objects\, we say we tropicalize these objects.
The key feature of tropicalization is that important information about th
e objects (related to the problem studied) is conserved.\n\nAfter a recap
of basic notions\, I will give an overview of recent achievements of tropi
cal enumerative geometry and discuss current directions of research.\n\nht

DESCRIPTION:Abstract:\n(joint works with Tarig Abdelgadir and Kazushi Ueda
). It is known that the category of coherent sheaves on certain varieties\
, such as projective spaces and del Pezzo surfaces\, are derived equivalen
t to the category of representations of certain quivers with relations. Wh
en we allow the variety to deform\, even into the noncommutative direction
s\, the relations of the quiver also deform correspondingly (with the quiv
er unchanged). This allows us to construct `approximate' compactified modu
li space of noncommutative deformations of such varieties as the moduli sp
ace of relations of the corresponding quiver. In this talk I will explain
the generality of this construction and what we know so far in the case of
del Pezzo surfaces.\n\nhttp://indico.ictp.it/event/a14320/

DESCRIPTION:Summary:\n\n Let E be an elliptic curve over the field of rati
onal numbers and let L(E\, s) be its L-function. The Birch and Swinnerton-
Dyer formula predicts that the first non-zero coefficient of the Taylor ex
pansion of L(E\, s) around s = 1 encodes some important arithmetic invaria
nts attached to E. Assume that L(E\, s) has a simple zero at s = 1.\n By t
he work of Wei Zhang we know that the p-part of the BSD formula holds for
all primes p greater or equal to 5. Recently\, Chao Li has obtained some i
nteresting results for p = 2. In this talk we shall discuss a refinement o
f the 2-part of the conjecture introduced in the Gross-Kohnen-Zagier (1987
) paper that seems resonant with some aspects of Chao Li's recent results.
The talk is intended for a non-specialist audience and we will focus most

tinuous structure relations. Another relation due to Veech coincides with
the regionally proximal relation in many cases for minimal flows.\n\nhttp:

DESCRIPTION:Abstract:\n\n In this talk\, we first review some basic result
s of square stochastic matrices concerning the convergence of power of squ
are stochastic matrix. We also discuss a linear operator associated with a
square stochastic matrix. This gives an advantage to interpret all result
s by means of the language of dynamical system.\n In the second part of th
is talk\, we discuss on a cubic stochastic matrix. Unlike square matrices\
, there is no proper multiplication of two cubic matrices in which the dim
ension of matrices would remain invariant. That’s why we can’t speak a
bout the inverse of cubic matrix (which is the important concept) and the
power of cubic matrices. However\, for each cubic stochastic matrix we can
associate a quadratic operator acting on the finite dimensional simplex.\
n By this way\, we can consider the similar problem which was studied in t
he linear case. For example\, due to the Perron-Frobenius theorem\, the tr
ajectory of linear operator associated with the positive square stochastic
matrix converges to a unique fixed point. It is natural to ask the simila
r question for quadratic operators\, i.e.\, does the trajectory of quadrat
ic operator associated with the positive cubic stochastic matrix converge
to a unique fixed point? However\, this is wrong in general. The main reas
on is that a quadratic operator associated with positive cubic stochastic
matrix may have many fixed points. The first attempt to provide an example
for quadratic stochastic operators with positive coefficients having thre
e fixed points was done by A.A. Krapivin (Lyubich’s former graduate stud
ent) and Y.I. Lyubich. However\, it turns out that their examples were wro
ng.\n We showed that Krapivin-Lyubich examples have a unique fixed point.
Moreover\, we provide an example for a family of quadratic stochastic oper
ators with positive coefficients which have three fixed points. Consequent
ly\, the question mentioned above does not have an affirmative answer in g
eneral. If it is a case\, can we find an affirmative answer for some class
of quadratic operators? The last but not least\, we also provide a class
of quadratic stochastic operators (which are not contraction) in which the
ir trajectory converges a unique fixed point.\n\nhttp://indico.ictp.it/eve

DESCRIPTION:\n Abstract: Classical modular forms are holomorphic functions
that are meromorphic at the cusps and satisfy nice modular symmetries. Ha
rmonic Maass forms are real-analytic generalizations thereof in that inste
ad of being holomorphic they are annihilated by the weight k Laplace opera
tor. These functions generalize Maass waveforms\, which are of weight 0 an
d decay in the cusps. Recently there has been an active interest in harmon
ic Maass forms\, as their holomorphic parts (so-called mock modular forms)
naturally occur in various areas of mathematics and physics. The probably
most famous example of mock modular forms are given by Ramanujan's mock t
heta function which he introduced in his last letter to Hardy shortly befo
re he died. In this talk I instead consider Maass forms which are also all
owed to have poles in the upper half plane and give various applications o
f such functions including Hardy-Ramanujan type formulas for meromorphic m
odular forms. All this is joint work with Ben Kane. \n\nhttp://indico.ictp

the system between impulses\; a set $D \\subset X$ where the flow undergoe
s some abrupt changes\, whose duration is\, however\, negligible in compar
ison with the time length of the whole process\; and an impulsive function
$I:D\\to X$ which specifies how a jump event happens each time a trajecto
ry of the flow hits $D$\, and whose action may be a source of discontinuit
ies on the trajectories. Dynamical systems with impulsive effects appear t
o be an appropriate mathematical model to describe real phenomena that exh
ibit sudden changes in their behavior. In this talk we give sufficient con

semiflows and establish a Variational Principle. Joint work with Maria Car

DESCRIPTION:Abstract:\n\n Let $X$ be a rational homogeneous space. It is w
ell known that $X$ can be embedded in a projective space so that it is cov
ered by lines. A vector bundle on $X$ is said to be uniform if its restric
tion to any line is the same.\n Given a vector bundle $E$ on $X$\, a point
$x\\in X$\, and a line $\\ell\\subset X$ through $x$\, one can construct
in a natural way a flag on the fiber of $E$ at $x$: $$ E^1_{x\,\\ell}\\sub
set E^2_{x\,\\ell} \\subset \\cdots \\subset E^k_{x\,\\ell}=E_x. $$ When t
he vector bundle $E$ is uniform\, the dimensions $d_i=\\dim E^i_{x\,\\ell}
$ do not depend on the choice of the line $\\ell$. So one gets a morphism:
$$ s_{E\,x}:H_x\\to F(d_1\, d_2\, \\dots\, d_k\; E_x) $$ from the space $
H_x$ of lines on $X$ through $x$ to the appropriate flag variety.\n This m
orphism encodes geometric properties of $E$. For instance\, we show that t
he morphism $s_{E\,x}$ is constant if and only if $E$ splits as a sum of l
ine bundles. This result generalizes and provides a unified proof of sever
al splitting criteria for uniform vector bundles on rational homogeneous s
paces.\n This is a joint work with Nicolas Puignau.\n\nhttp://indico.ictp.

ds called mapping tori. Amongst all mapping tori\, pseudo-Anosov mapping t
ori are the only ones which are hyperbolic and it is expected that their q
uantum invariant is related to their hyperbolic volume. We will show how o
ne can use Teichmueller curves to compute quantum invariants of pseudo-Ano

the local system\, which comes from geometric quantization of the moduli s
pace of semi stable vector bundles or a 2-dimensional conformal field theo
ry\, in the case of genus two curves where it can be explicitly written do
wn. We will compute the monodromy of this local system restricted to a par

DESCRIPTION:Abstract:\n\n In his quantum field theoretic interpretation of
the Jones polynomial\, E. Witten outlined a construction of a (projective
) local system on the moduli space of curves and used the monodromy repres
entation of this local system to define 'quantum' invariants of 3-manifold
s called mapping tori. Amongst all mapping tori\, pseudo-Anosov mapping to
ri are the only ones which are hyperbolic and it is expected that their qu
antum invariant is related to their hyperbolic volume. We will show how on
e can use Teichmueller curves to compute quantum invariants of pseudo-Anos
ov mapping tori. For concreteness\, we will recall the construction of the
local system\, which comes from geometric quantization of the moduli spac
e of semi stable vector bundles or a 2-dimensional conformal field theory\
, in the case of genus two curves where it can be explicitly written down.
We will compute the monodromy of this local system restricted to a partic
ular Teichmueller curve and talk about the pseudo-Anosov mapping tori and
their quantum invariants coming from this example.\n\nhttp://indico.ictp.i

DESCRIPTION:Abstract:\nLet f and g be two modular forms that are eigenvect
ors for all the Hecke operators. Let \\lambda_f (n) and \\lambda_g (n) be
the respective eigenvalues for the T(n) operator. Then f and g are said to
be congruent mod a prime p if \\lambda_f (n) is congruent to \\lambda_g (
n) mod p\, for all n. Such congruences have been historically important ha
ve lead to studying p-adic families of modular forms. In the early 80s\, H
ida proved an important relationship between congruences and the special v
alues of certain L-functions attached to modular forms. In my talk\, I wil
l review these results and discuss some of its generalizations.\n\nhttp://

DESCRIPTION:16:00 - 16:50 Part I - Basic introduction16:50 - 17:00
Coffee break\n17:00 - 17:50 Part II - Technical discussion\n Abstract
: The shuffle conjecture gives a combinatorial interpretation of certain g
enerating functions arising from the study of the action of the permutatio
n group S_n on the algebra of polynomials in 2n variables x_1\, y_1\,...\,
x_n\, y_n. The combinatorial side is given in terms of certain objects ca
lled parking functions\, and the generating functions that arise there can
be thought of as generalizations of Catalan numbers. The conjecture was f
ormulated by Haglund and his collaborators in 2005\, and since then attrac
ted a lot of interest of algebraic combinatorists. During Erik Carlsson's
stay at ICTP last year we were able to prove the conjecture\, and that's w
hat the talk will be about. First 50 minutes are intended for a general au
dience\, I will talk about symmetric functions and demonstrate some import
ant general tools for dealing with the generating functions of the kind we
encountered. After a short break I will continue with more details on our
proof.\n\nhttp://indico.ictp.it/event/7734/

definition and the general expression of this determinant. Then we mainly
present the different aspects of the real reflection groups (in algebra as
finite Coxeter groups\, in geometry as Coxeter arrangements\, and in comb
inatorics as Coxeter complexes)\, and how these different aspects interact
each other. We finish by talking on the role played by each aspect for th
e calculation of the Varchenko determinant of any Coxeter arrangement.\n T

DESCRIPTION:\n Abstract: \n The Lagrange spectrum is a classical object in
Diophantine approximation on the real line that has been generalised to m
any different settings. In particular\, recently it has been generalised t
o a similar object for translation surfaces\, which attracted quite some a
ttention in the field. We study the Lagrange spectrum in the contest of Ve
ech translation surfaces. These are particular translation surfaces with m
any symmetries\, that can be thought as a dynamical equivalent of the toru
s in higher genera.\n Together with L. Marchese and C. Ulcigrai\, we show
that for such surfaces\, similarly to what happens in the classical case\,
the Lagrange spectrum contains an infinite interval\, called Hall ray. In
our construction we use coding of hyperbolic geodesics and we deduce a fo
rmula that allows to describe high values in the spectrum as a sum of two
Cantor sets.\n Time permitting\, we will also talk about an ongoing projec
t about a specific class of examples of Veech surfaces: the surfaces obtai
ned by gluing a regular 2n-gon. In this case one can prove finer result\,
for instance studying the minimum of the spectrum\, the so-called Hurwitz
constant.\n\nhttp://indico.ictp.it/event/7796/

DESCRIPTION:\n GEOMETRIC ANALYSIS SEMINARS 2016Abstract: In this on-going
scalar curvature seminar series\, we last time heard from Claudio Arezzo a
bout the role of scalar curvature in the theory of Sacks-Uhlenbeck/Schoen-
Yau concerning existence of harmonic maps and incompressible minimal surfa
ces. The main conclusion was of the form: For a Riemannian 3-manifold (M3\
, g)\, having positive scalar curvature implies a topological phenomenon:
That there are no 'holes' inside M3 which 'look like' a genus >=1 surface.
\n This time around we will look at a different (but related) aspect\, usi
ng the theory of Kazdan-Warner and Yamabe/Trudinger/Aubin/Schoen: Given a
manifold Mn\, which functions (and of special interest: the constant ones)
can be the scalar curvature of some metric on Mn?". The setting here is t
o start with a metric g and search only within the same conformal class [g
]\, which is a natural reduction of the problem to "just" one second order
nonlinear PDE in one scalar function on M.\n\nhttp://indico.ictp.it/event

fields with class number 1 (the last being Q(√-163)\, and conjectured t
here were no more. This case of h=1 was resolved by very different methods
by Heegner and Baker (who won the Fields Medal) and Stark in the 60s. Soo
n after\, Goldfeld proposed a plan to effectively show that h→∞\, his
idea being dependent on the existence of an elliptic curve having analytic
rank 3 (and meeting other minor technical conditions). The proof of this
was then completed in the 80s by Gross and Zagier\, involving a height for
mula for Heegner points. We discuss an improvement to Goldfeld's theorem\,

actional maps with integer coefficients. All these maps have natural exten
sions that can easily be described on an ad hoc basis. We present a genera
l framework for dealing with all these maps in a uniform way. The construc
tion is geometric and well visualizable\, exploiting both the interpretati
on of continued fractions as symbolic dynamics for the geodesic flow on th
e modular surface\, and the projective duality between the hyperbolic plan
e and the de Sitter space.\n\nhttp://indico.ictp.it/event/8024/

DESCRIPTION:\n Abstract: Bridgeland assigned to any triangulated category
a complex manifold\, whose elements are referred to as stability condition
s. Homological mirror symmetry and string theory predict a parallel betwee
n Teichmüller theory and categories whereby the stability space plays the
role of the Teichmüller space. However it is hard to extract global info
rmation for these spaces. Beilinson observed patterns in the structure of
some triangulated categories called later exceptional collections. The int
erplay between the two notions in the title unveils novelties for both. An
explicit determining of the entire stability spaces on wild Kronecker qui
vers in our latest joint work with L. Katzarkov is a subsequent result ari
sing from this interplay. In this talk I will try to put the new result in
a context\, supporting what Bridgeland wrote: the whole idea of extractin
g geometry from homological algebra is\, to me at least\, a very attractiv
e one.\n\nhttp://indico.ictp.it/event/8043/

DESCRIPTION:\n Abstract:\n I would not really like to tell you the meaning
of the two rational numbers in the title\, I would rather like to keep th
em mysterious until the occasion of my talk. However\, I must give some in
gredients of my talk\, otherwise you might not come to the seminar\, maybe
.\n One of the main ingredients is conformal field theories. As you may kn
ow\, conformal field theories involve many mathematical aspects\, for inst
ance\, vertex operator algebras\, moduli spaces of algebraic curves\, modu
lar forms\, linear differential equations with regular singularities\, and
so on. In my research on classifying rational conformal field theories\,
these two numbers appeared naturally. On my way to deal with these numbers
\, I needed the notion of modular tensor categories which include the conc
epts of quantum dimensions and global dimensions.\n What I did\, and will
explain in this talk\, is that I first find solutions of lin- ear differen
tial equations with regular singularities whose spaces of solutions are in
variant under the slash 0 action\, and get the exact form of S-matrices co
rresponding to the S-transformation. Then the theory of modular tensor cat
egories allows us to compute quantum dimensions and then global dimen- sio
ns. By contrast\, the theory of vertex operator algebra gives us different
global dimensions\, which means such conformal field theories do not exis
t.\n Because I use many mathematical tools including modular forms on the
congruence groups (which you know very well)\, I decided to use slides to
give you enough information and make the talk self-contained. In fact\, ev
ery notion which appears in my talk will be explained. A prior knowledge i
s not required.\n\nhttp://indico.ictp.it/event/8071/

ally mixing Anosov flowsAbstract: If a flow is sufficiently close to a vol
ume-preserving Anosov flow and dim E_s = 1\, dim E_u \\geq 2 then the flow
mixes exponentially whenever the stable and unstable foliations are not j
ointly integrable (similarly if the requirements on stable and unstable bu
ndle are reversed). This implies the existence of non-empty open sets of e
xponentially mixing Anosov flows. (Joint work with Khadim War).\n 12:00 -
13:00 Davide Ravotti (Bristol)Ergodic properties of area-preserving flows
on compact surfacesAbstract: We consider the set of area-preserving flows
on compact surfaces with isolated fixed points. The study of these flows d
ates back to Novikov in the 80s and since then many properties have been i
nvestigated. Starting from an overview of the known results\, we will show
that typical such flows admitting several minimal components are mixing w
hen restricted to each minimal component and we provide an estimate on the
decay of correlations for smooth observables.\n 15:00 - 16:00 Maurizio Mo

sed to compute rigorously the invariant measure and rigorously estimate ob
servables for general dynamical systems with noise. We will illustrate the
interplay of Wasserstein\, $L^1$ and variation norms on the space of sign
ed measures\, and show how it can be exploited to obtain a surprisingly ef
fective estimation of the invariant measure in the $L^1$ norm. We conclude
showing how this allows to prove rigorously the noise-induced order pheno
menon for a model of the Belousov-Zhabotinsky reaction\, that had been dis
covered with numerical simulations by Matsumoto-Tsuda in 1983.\n 16:30 - 1

liation. (Like Poincaré maps of Lorenz systems or toral extensions). We s
how some suitable spaces of measures with sign (whose regularity is define
d trough a disintegration on the preserved foliation) adapted to this kind
of systems. The spaces are well behaved with respect to the action of the
transfer operator and in particular they satisfy a kind of Lasota Yorke i
nequality. By this\, and by the speed of decay of correlations of these sy

l sheaves on the total spaces of L. The moduli space admits a C^*-action i
nduced by scaling the fibers of L. We identify certain components of the f
ixed locus of the moduli space with the moduli space of torsion free sheav
es on S and the nested Hilbert schemes on S. We define reduced Donaldson-T
homas invariants by virtual localization. When L is the canonical bundle o
f S these reduced DT invariants recover Vafa-Witten invariants defined by
Tanaka-Thomas via the moduli space of Higgs pairs on S. Vafa-Witten invari
ants are expected to have modular properties predicted by S-duality. We fu

we are able to express these equivariant Donaldson-Thomas invariants on th

in all aspects of daily and professional lives. Such integration creates w
hat is called cyber-physical systems (or\, preferred by communication engi
neers\, the Internet of Things). Such systems combine both physical compon
ents which are modeled by continuous paradigms such as differential equati
ons and computing elements which are inherently discrete. This continuous/
discrete combination creates tremendous challenges\, both from the theoret
ical as well as practical applicability. In this talk we give an introduct
ion to a part of computability theory\, called computable analysis\, which
has been developed to address issues of computability over continuous dom
ains. We show one application of such approach in the complexity-theoretic
analysis of the reachability problem in dynamical systems.\n\nhttp://indi

DESCRIPTION:\n Short description:\n A smooth projective variety defined ov
er a number field has its associated Hasse-Weil zeta function which encode
s all of its arithmetic information. Fermat's last theorem was proved by W
iles et al. by showing that the Hasse-Weil zeta function of any elliptic c
urve defined over the rational numbers coincides with the L-function of a
modular form of weight two. The million dollar worth Birch and Swinnerton-
Dyer conjecture is concerned with the behavior of the zeroes of such Hasse
-Weil zeta functions. More recently\, and perhaps surprisingly\, Hasse-Wei
l zeta functions of three dimensional Calabi-Yau manifolds have found appl
ications in the study of black holes in the context of type II string theo
ry.\n In this course we will study a few examples where the Hasse-Weil zet
a functions are well understood. Our list of examples will include the fol
lowing:- Elliptic curves with complex multiplication\n - Modular curves\n
- Hyperelliptic curves over number fields\n - Attractive K3 surfaces\n - D
el Pezzo surfaces over the rational numbers\n We will first introduce all
of the objects above over the field of complex numbers\, so people interes
ted solely in the complex geometry of these objects can benefit. After def
ining Hasse-Weil zeta functions in general\, we will study these zeta func
tions for the above objects where a lot of their conjectural properties ca
n be tested. To be more concrete\, we will use the the computer algebra pr
ogram MAGMA in which a number of algorithms have been implemented to const
ruct these zeta functions explicitly. This will allow us to experiment and
explore these zeta functions in a hands on way.\n The course will consist
of ten lectures\, each one hour long. For students taking the course for
credit\, the final exam will be in the form of a thirty minute presentatio
n on a topic of their choice.\n\nhttp://indico.ictp.it/event/8211/

is known to possess a discrete spectrum of eigenvalues converging to infi

as the eigenvalue becomes large (i.e. the high-energy limit). From a physi
cal point of view\, the eigenfunctions represent stationary states of a fr
ee quantum particle - when properly normalized\, they may be interpreted a
s the probability density of a particle in the manifold. Various questions
about the geometry of Laplace-eigenfunctions have been studied thoroughly
- for example\, distribution and measure of the vanishing (nodal) set\; l
ocalization\; shape and inner radius of nodal domains\, etc. We present so
me recent results along these lines - this also includes joint work with M

system has the central shadowing property: for any pseudotrajectory there
exists a close one where all errors are small shifts along the central fo

de Freitas (Universidade do Porto)\nTitle: Introduction to extreme value t
heory for dynamical systems \n \n Abstract:\n In this talk\, we start by p
resenting some notions of extreme value theory\, namely the notions of ext
reme value laws and extremal index\, which is a parameter that quantifies
the intensity of clustering of exceedances. Then\, we consider discrete ti
me dynamical systems and stochastic processes arising by evaluating an obs
ervable function along the orbits of such systems. We show the connection
between extreme value laws and hitting time statistics and exploit it both
in the absence and presence of clustering. We associate the occurrence of
periodic phenomena to the existence of an extremal index less than 1.\n\n
Part 2\nTime: 15:15 – 15:55\nSpeaker: Jorge Milhazes Freitas (Universida
de do Porto) \nTitle: Rare events point processes and periodicity \n Abstr
act:\n We consider time series corresponding to the evaluation of given po
tential along the orbits of systems with `nice' first return induced maps.
Nice\, here\, means good memory loss properties. We are particularly inte
rested in events corresponding to exceedances of high thresholds\, i.e. in
stants at which the potential reaches abnormally high values\, and\, more
specifically\, when these exceedances have a tendency to appear in cluster
s. We will see the consequences of clustering in the convergence of conven
iently normalised point processes that count the number of exceedances in
a certain time frame.\n\nhttp://indico.ictp.it/event/8279/

DESCRIPTION:\n Abstract: Let G be a discrete group. It is well known that
the homology groups of G have both algebraic and topological definitions.
Now consider a subgroup H of G. In the literature there are two versions o
f relative homology groups for the pair (G\,H)\, the theory by Adamson gen
eralizes in a natural way the algebraic definition\, while the theory by T
akasu generalizes in a natural way the topological definition. In the firs
t part of the talk\, we present both theories\, we give simple examples th
at show that these theories do not coincide in general\, and we give a suf
ficient condition on the subgroup H in order that the two theories coincid
e.\n In the second part of the talk\, we define invariants of complete\, o
rientable\, non compact hyperbolic 3-manifolds of finite volume\, in Adams
on relative homology groups. We explain the relation between these invaria
nts and the elements in Takasu relative homology groups given by Zickert\,
which are used to define and invariant of such hyperbolic 3-manifolds in
the extended Bloch group defined by Neumann.\n\nhttp://indico.ictp.it/even

DESCRIPTION:\n Abstract:\n Mordell-Weil's theorem states that\, for an abe
lian variety defined over a number field K\, the group of K-rational point
s is finitely generated. More precisely it can be seen as a product of a f
ree group by a finite subgroup of torsion points over K. One can wonder if
we can get a uniform bound for the order of the subgroup of torsion point
s over a finite extension L over K\, depending on the degree of this exten
sion and the dimension of the abelian variety\, when the abelian variety v
aries in a certain class. This question is commonly known as the ``Strong
Uniform Boundedness Conjecture''. For elliptic curves defined over a numbe
r field K\, Merel proved in 1994 that we can indeed get a uniform bound us
ing methods developed by Mazur and Kamienny.\n A complementary question wo
uld be to ask if we can get a bound for the order of the subgroup of torsi
on points over a finite extension L over K\, depending on the degree of th
is extension and the dimension of the abelian variety\, when L varies over
all the finite extensions of K and the abelian variety is fixed. This que
stion had been already answered by Hindry and Ratazzi for certain classes
of abelian varieties.\n In this talk we focus our attention on this last q
uestion and extend the previous results. We are going to present some new
results concerning the class of abelian varieties of type III in Albert's
classification and “fully of Lefschetz type” (i.e. whose Mumford-Tate
group is the group of symplectic or orthogonal similitudes commuting with
endomorphisms and which satisfy the Mumford-Tate conjecture). Moreover\, w
e are going to give an explicit list of abelian varieties which satisfy Mu
mford-Tate conjecture.\n\nhttp://indico.ictp.it/event/8435/

DESCRIPTION:\n Abstract:\n In recent years\, techniques from computational
and real algebraic geometry have been successfully used to address mathem
atical challenges in systems biology. (Bio)chemical reaction networks defi
ne systems of ordinary differential equations with (in general\, unknown)
parameters. Under mass-action kinetics\, these equations depend polynomial
ly on the concentrations of the chemical species. The algebraic theory of
chemical reaction systems aims to understand their dynamic behavior by tak
ing advantage of the inherent algebraic structure in the kinetic equations
\, and does not need a priori determination of the parameters\, which can
be theoretically or practically impossible.\n I will first present a gentl
e introduction to the basic concepts. I will then describe general results
based on the network structure. In particular\, I will explain a general
framework for biological systems\, called MESSI systems\, that describe Mo
difications of type Enzyme-Substrate or Swap with Intermediates\, and incl
ude many post-translational modification networks. I will also outline rec
ent methods to detect the capacity for multistationarity and to describe p
arameters for which multistationarity occurs\, allowing for multiple stead

of the number of sign variations of its coefficients. This is an extremely
simple rule\, which is exact when all the roots are real\, for instance\,
for characteristic polynomials of symmetric matrices. No general multivar

in collaboration with Stefan Müller\, Elisenda Feliu\, Georg Regensburger

at the number of positive roots of a polynomial system of n polynomials in
n variables is related to the relation between the signs of the maximal
minors of the matrix of exponents and of the matrix of coefficients (that
is\, to the relation between the associated oriented matroids). I will exp

DESCRIPTION:\n Abstract: After the modular forms of rational weights on Γ
(5) (and Γ(7)) were dis- covered\, T. Ibukiyama formulated modular forms
of weights (N − 3)/2N (N > 3 and odd) on Γ(N) in the millennium\, which
have remained mysterious until now. In this talk I will gives a new point
of view\, which has advantages of understanding the factional weights and
congruence groups that appear in the theory of Ibukiyama. I (we) have bee
n working on the minimal models and the associated differential equations
which are a higher order generalization of Kaneko-Zagier equation. Recentl
y\, we found that the special case of the minimal models “essentially”
gives these modular forms of fractional weights\, where “essentially”
means “after multiplying a power of eta function.” The characters (on
e-point functions) of (rational) conformal field theories may have negativ
e powers of q when they are expanded as Fourier series. Of course\, we can
have only non-negative powers by multiplying a power of q. However\, the
results lose almost all good properties which characters have (including m
odular invariance property). Now\, since the eta function commutes with th
e Serre derivation\, we multiply a power of the eta function to the charac
ters. Moreover\, the power must be the so-called effective central charge
in the Physics literature. Then the result we will prove is that modular f
orms of rational weights are obtained by multiplying ηceff to characters.
In a point of view of differential equations such as the Kaneko-Zagier eq
uation\, special functions would be defined as solutions of differential e
quations with regular singularities. Therefore\, we may think that modular
forms of rational weights would be “special functions.” This talk req
uires elementary knowledge of (modular forms)\, vertex operator algebras\,
minimal models and modular linear differential equations\, which have bee
n (will be) given in series of lectures of Prof. Zagier.Finally\, this is
a joint work with Y. Sakai (who is a number theorist) at Kyushu University
. \n\nhttp://indico.ictp.it/event/8469/

DESCRIPTION:\n Abstract: Let γ : M × [0.T ) → Rn+1 be a family of smoo
th immersions of an n−dimensional manifold M evolving by mean curvature
flow. When M is compact\, it is well known that the mean curvature flow is
defined up to a finite singular time T at which the curvature of the hype
rsurface becomes unbounded. For instance\, if the initial surface is conve
x\, the evolving surfaces become spherical and contract to a point. On the
other hand\, if the initial surface is not convex\, the evolution may bec
ome singular without shrinking. The study of singularities for the mean cu
rvature flow is of great interest but\, also in the last decades several m
ethods have been developed to continue the flow beyond the first singular
time. Huisken and Sinestrari con- sidered a new approach based on a surger
y procedure to extend the mean curvature flow after singularities. This co
nstruction was inspired by a procedure originally introduced by Hamilton f
or the Ricci flow which played a fundamental role in the work by Perelman
to prove the Poincare` and Geometrization conjectures. The results about s
ingularities and surgery for the mean curvature flow were obtained for man
ifolds of codi- mension 1. In this case the comparison principle is fundam
ental which\, among others things\, ensures that the embeddedness is prese
rved. In contrast\, the comparison principle cannot be applied for higher
codimension mani- folds making more difficult the study of such evolution.
In this talk I will introduce the types of singularities as well as the p
rocedure of surgery for mean curvature flow. We are going to discuss some
new results concerning the simplest case in higher codimension\, space cur
ves.\n\nhttp://indico.ictp.it/event/8482/

Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture. A basic consequence of this conject
ure is the parity conjecture: the sign of the functional equation of the L
-series determines the parity of the rank of A/K. Under suitable local con
straints and finiteness of the Shafarevich-Tate group\, we prove the parit
y conjecture for principally polarized abelian surfaces. We also prove ana

DESCRIPTION:\n Abstract: In this talk we will discuss on the L¹-Liouville
property for positive\, superharmonic functions by providing many evidenc
es that its validity relies on geometric conditions localized on large eno
ugh portions of the space. By the way\, we present some examples in any di
mension showing that the L¹-Liouville property is strictly weaker than th
e stochastic completeness of the manifold. The main tool in our investigat
ions is represented by the potential theory of a manifold with boundary su
bject to Dirichlet boundary conditions. This is a joint work with Professo
rs Stefano Pigola and Alberto G. Setti (Università degli Studi dell'Insub

DESCRIPTION:\n Abstract: There has been much progress recently in proving
single-letter formulas for the mutual information (or " free energy ") in
high-dimensional estimation and learning problems. Computing the mutual in
formation is important in order to locate the various " phase transitions
" occurring in such problems when the noise increases or the data becomes
too scarce. It is also key in computing various optimal achievable errors.
Unfortunately all existing methods are highly involved\, difficult to gen
eralize and restricted in their applicability. In this talk I'll present a
new method\, called " adaptive interpolation method "\, that eliminates t
hese barriers all at once: It is much simpler\, very generic and able to t
ackle problems that were resisting until now. I will illustrate the method
on a paradigmatic model of high-dimensional estimation\, namely the " Wig
ner spiked model " (or " low-rank matrix factorization "). I will also bri
efly review some models that are now under full rigorous control thanks to
this approach\, as well as very recent extensions to physics models such
as the " ferromagnetic p-spin model on sparse random graphs "\, an open pr
oblem for decades for reasons that I'll mention.\n\nhttp://indico.ictp.it/

to hold more attention on these types of scenes particularly\, for crowd

become one of the most attractive topics in the computer vision and patte

DESCRIPTION:\n Abstract: This is report on joint work with Martijn Kool.
Using arguments from theoretical physics\, Vafa and Witten gave a generat
ing function for the Euler numbers of moduli spaces of rank 2 coherent she
aves on algebraic surfaces. Sheaves can be viewed as generalizations of ve
ctor bundles. Moduli spaces are algebraic varieties that parametrize the o
bjects in which we are interested.\n \n While the Vafa-Witten formula ca
nnot be literally true as a formula for the Euler numbers in general\, we
give an interpretation of it in terms of virtual topological invariants\,
and confirm it in many cases. We extend the results to finer topological i
nvariants and also to rank 3.\n \n Such virtual invariants occur everywh
ere in modern enumerative geometry\, inspired by physics\, like Gromov-Wit
ten invariants and Donaldson Thomas invariants\, when attempting to make s
ense of the predictions from physics. Basically the idea is that the modul
i spaces have very bad properties\, but they "want to be" smooth\, and the
virtual invariants are those that they would have if they were smooth.\n
\n We will try to give elementary explanations of all these concepts and
their background\, as much as is possible. Most of the time will be spent
to just trying to explain the problem and the result. If there is time\,
some hints will be given about the methods.\n\nhttp://indico.ictp.it/event

ry. According to H. Lenzing\, a considerable part of Auslander's work on t

the Auslander's proof of the formula and then introduce and study a relat

uivalences of the endomorphism algebras of generators and the Morita equiv

DESCRIPTION:\n Abstract: We prove the wellposedness of scalar wave equatio

the scalar potential turned on by introducing the k-order linear energy an
d the corresponding energy norm. In the local case\, we show that both the
k-order linear energy and the energy norm are bounded for finite time wit
h initial data in Hk+1 × Hk. Whereas in the global case\, we have to add
three assumptions related to the nonminimal coupling constant\, the scale
factor of spacetimes\, and the form of the scalar that has to be a polynom
ial with a small positive parameter. Then\, we show that the solution does
globally exist with a particular decay estimate that depends on the scale
factor of the spacetimes. Finally\, we provide some physical models that
support our general setup.\n\nhttp://indico.ictp.it/event/8572/

d to write a tensor T as a linear combination of r undecomposable tensors
is called the rank of T. Determining the rank of a tensor is a problem tha
t has received much attention in recent years\, and has a nice geometric i
nterpretation.\n In this talk I will explain some applications of tensors
decomposition and interpret the problem from the point of view of algebrai

DESCRIPTION:\n ABSTRACT:\n\n In an effort to find a higher dimensional ana
logue of the classical uniformization theorem in complex geometry\, it was
suggested by E. Calabi that one should study existence of "canonical metr
ics" on compact Kähler manifolds. These are the so called extremal metric
s\, characterized by the fact that they minimize a certain functional on t
he space of Kähler metrics. Many natural and important classes of metrics
fall into this category\, such as the Kähler-Einstein metrics\, that pla
y a prominent role also in physics. Kähler-Einstein metrics were proven t
o always exist on Calabi-Yau manifolds and on manifolds of general type. I
n the case of Fano manifolds however\, it has been long known that they do
not always exist\, and it was conjectured by S-T. Yau\, S. Donaldson and
G. Tian that existence should be linked to stability of the underlying man
ifold. In the case of Kähler-Einstein metrics on Fano manifolds this conj
ecture was confirmed in 2012 by Chen-Donaldson-Sun and Tian independently\
, who showed that existence of Kähler Einstein metrics is equivalent to a
stability condition in algebraic geometry called K-stability.\n\n General
izing the above picture further we may ask about existence of a larger cla
ss of extremal metrics\, namely the constant scalar curvature metrics. In
this talk I will present an analytic/pluripotential approach to stability
notions that obstruct existence of such metrics on arbitrary (not necessar
ily projective) compact Kähler manifolds. I will explain how the methods
used allow us to view classical algebraic stability notions in a new light
\, and gives a framework for comparing certain stability notions to each o
ther. Finally\, I will discuss how the pluripotential approach is related
to recent developments regarding Tian's properness conjecture and generali
zed Yau-Tian-Donaldson conjectures.\n\nhttp://indico.ictp.it/event/8790/

DESCRIPTION:\n Abstract:\n We consider one complex structure parameter mir
ror families W of Calabi-Yau 3-folds with Picard-Fuchs equations of hyperg
eometric type. By mirror symmetry the even D-brane masses of the orginal C
alabi-Yau M can be identified with four periods w.r.t. to an inte- gral sy
mplectic basis of H3(W\, Z) at the point of maximal unipotent monodromy. I
t was discovered by Chad Schoen in 1986 that the sin- gular fibre of the q
uintic at the conifold point gives rise to a Hecke eigen form of weight fo
ur f4 on Γ0(25) whose Fourier coefficients ap are determined by counting
solutions in that fibre over the finite field Fpk . The D-brane masses at
the conifold are given by the transition matrix Tmc between the integral s
ymplectic basis and a Frobenius basis at the conifold. We predict and veri
fy to very high precision that the entries of Tmc relevant for the D2 and
D4 brane masses are given by the two periods (or L-values) of f4. These va
lues also deter- mine the behaviour of the Weil-Petersson metric and its c
urvature at the conifold. Moreover we describe a notion of quasi periods a
nd find that the two quasi period of f4 appear in Tmc. We extend the analy
- sis to the other hypergeometric one parameter 3-folds and comment on sim
pler applications to local Calabi-Yau 3-folds.\n\nhttp://indico.ictp.it/ev

DESCRIPTION:\n Abstract:\n Over the last two centuries mathematicians have
developed a very rich theory of abelian varieties\; however\, certain kin
ds of explicit calculations have remained out of reach of our computationa
l power until quite recently\, when theoretical and technological advances
have led to a renewed interest in the computational side of the theory. I
n this talk I will discuss one of the fundamental algorithmic problems one
would like to solve\, namely that of determining the endomorphism ring of
the Jacobian of an explicitly given curve over a number field. I will des
cribe a method to compute the endomorphism ring of such a Jacobian\, start
ing with the case of genus-2 curves\, and show the connection between this
problem and a certain local-global principle for the center of the endomo
rphism algebra. If time permits\, I will also outline how to prove the nec
essary local-global principle for abelian surfaces and\, under the assumpt
ion of the Mumford-Tate conjecture\, for all abelian varieties.\n\nhttp://

s” whose coefficients are also called periods. In the first part of the
lecture I will review the classical construction of these period polynomia
ls (associated with the names Eichler\, Shimura\, and Manin) and explain t
hat modular forms also have quasiperiods\, although this was apparently no
t noticed until a couple of years ago. In the second part\, which can be s

the symplectic cohomology of the Tate curve (minus its central fiber)\, we
will go through the Fukaya category of the elliptic curve and describe th

DESCRIPTION:\n Müller\, Ricci\, and Wright recently established the first
"maximal restriction theorem" for the Fourier transform. As a direct cons
equence\, they clarified certain subtle measure theoretic aspects underlyi
ng Fourier restriction theory. In the first part of this talk\, we will gi
ve a brief introduction to the restriction problem\, and illustrate its im
portance in modern analysis. We will then focus on the endpoint Tomas-Stei
n inequality in 3-dimensional Euclidean space\, together with its maximal
and variational variants\, for which especially simple proofs are availabl
e. Finally\, we will describe a recent generalisation\, and present some o
pen problems.\n This is partly based on joint work with Vjekoslav Kovac.\n

DESCRIPTION:\n Abstract: The category of Soergel bimodules plays an essent
ial role in (higher) representation theory and for the construction of hom
ological invariants in knot theory. The aim of this talk is to present a g
eneralization of Soergel category attached to a Coxeter group of type A_2.
While Soergel category counts a generating bimodule per simple reflection
\, this generalization is obtained by taking one generator per reflection.
I will give a complete description of this category through a classificat
ion of its indecomposable objects and study its split Grothendieck ring. T
his gives rise to an algebra which is a quotient of the corresponding affi
ne Hecke algebra of type A_2\, that can be presented by generators and rel

DESCRIPTION:\n Abstract: The simplest and most famous L-function is the Ri
emann Zeta function. L-functions are ubiquitous in number theory\, and hav
e applications to mathematical physics and cryptography. Two of the seven
Clay Mathematics Million Dollar Millennium Problems deal with their proper
ties: the Riemann Hypothesis and the Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer Conjecture.
They arise from and encode information about a number of mathematical obj
ects\, and also provide links between them: for example\, Wiles' celebrate
d proof of Fermat's Last Theorem centred on proving that L-functions assoc
iated with certain elliptic curves were also associated with other objects
called modular forms.\n At least a dozen different mathematical objects a
re connected in various ways to L-functions. The study of those objects is
highly specialized\, and most mathematicians have only a vague idea of th
e objects outside their specialty and how everything is related. Helping m
athematicians to understand these connections was the motivation for the L
-functions and Modular Forms Database (LMFDB) project\, which started at A
IM in 2007 and has been supported by major grants from the NSF\, the UK EP
SRC and the Simons Foundation. Its mission is to chart the landscape of L-
functions and modular forms in a systematic and concrete fashion. This inv
olves developing their theory\, creating and improving algorithms for comp
uting and classifying them\, and hence discovering new properties of these
functions\, and testing fundamental conjectures.\n In the lecture I will
explain and demonstrate how we organise our large collection of data and d
isplay it\, together with the interrelations between linked objects\, thro
ugh our website [www.lmfdb.org]. I will also show how this has been built
via a world-wide collaborative open source project which we hope to be a m

DESCRIPTION:\n Abstract: Let p be a prime number. Due to classical work of
Shimura and Deligne\, to any "newform" (a modular form that is an eigenfu
nction for the Hecke operators and assumed of level one in the talk) one a
ttaches a p-adic Galois representation. Since there are infinitely many ne
wforms\, there are infinitely many attached p-adic Galois representations.
However\, if one reduces them modulo p\, there are only finitely many (up
to isomorphism). It is tempting to ask what happens "in between"\, i.e. w
hether there is still finiteness modulo fixed prime powers. In the talk\,
I will motivate and explain a conjecture made with Ian Kiming and Nadim Ru
stom and explain partial results\, including a relation to a strong questi
on by Kevin Buzzard.The talk is based on joint work with Ian Kiming and Na

DESCRIPTION:\n Abstract: The idea of studying rational maps by looking at

rational maps that depend on the algebraic properties of the syzygies of
the base ideal. Mainly\, we will introduce a new algebra called "saturated
special fiber ring" and we will discuss its relations with the degree and
birationality of rational maps between irreducible projective varieties.
Time permitting\, we will also discuss some results in the problem of spec

DESCRIPTION:\n Abstract: The problem of understanding the global symmetrie

y N. Tanaka in the 70s\, through the process known as (Tanaka) prolongatio
n. The output of the prolongation is a graded Lie algebra\, whose dimensio
n is an upper bound for the dimension of the space of symmetries. A system
is called rigid if its prolongation is finite dimensional. In this talk\,
I will show the generic rigidity of a wide class of non-holonomic systems
of step 2 (so-called Carnot groups). This result was obtained in joint wo

DESCRIPTION:\n Abstract: In this talk I will briefly discuss how p-adic in
tegration techniques are useful to extract information about the cohomolog
y of complex varieties. In regular cases the problem is reduced to compute
the number of points over finite fields\, but they also work in singular
cases or when explicit counting formulas were not found.\n\nhttp://indico.

DESCRIPTION:14:30 - 15:30 Roman O. Popovych (Faculty of Mathematics\, Univ
ersity of Vienna\, Austria & Institute of Mathematics\, NAS of Ukraine\, K
yiv\, Ukraine)Computation of contractions of Lie algebras\n Abstract: Limi
ting processes (contractions) of Lie algebras appear in different areas of
physics and mathematics\, where Lie algebras arise\, e.g.\, in the study
of representations\, invariants and special functions. The algebraic count
erpart of the notion of contractions of Lie algebras is given by degenerat
ions of Lie algebras.\n The main attention in the talk is paid to the prac
tical computation of contractions of Lie algebras. We present a wide list
of necessary conditions for the contraction existence. Particular ways for
realizing contractions\, which are relevant to physics and includes simpl
e and generalized Inönü–Wigner contractions and Saletan (linear) contr
actions\, are discussed and the limitation for using them is clarified. We
also plan to present the complete description of contractions of Lie alge
bras of dimension not greater than four\, of five- and six-dimensional nil
potent algebras and of almost Abelian Lie algebras over both the complex a
nd real field.\n 15:30 - 16:00 break\n 16:00 - 17:00 Célestin Kurujyibwam
i (University of Rwanda\, Kigali\, Rwanda)Group classification of multidim
ensional nonlinear Schrödinger equations\n Abstract: We describe the eq
uivalence groupoid and the equivalence group of the class N of generalized
multidimensional Schrödinger equations with variable mass and show that
this class is not normalized. We then partition this class into two disjoi
nt normalized subclasses and derive their corresponding equivalence groups
. Restricting to the case of constant mass equal to one\, we characterize
the point transformations of the subclasses of the class N with respect to
specific values of the arbitrary elements\, in particular we do this for
the class V of multidimensional nonlinear Schrödinger equations with pote
ntials and modular nonlinearities. This class also turns out not to be nor
malized. We partition it into three normalized subclasses\, and this allow
s us to apply the algebraic method and solve each subclass completely for
space dimension two. The group classification in each involves three integ
ers that are invariant with respect to the adjoint action of the equivalen
ce transformations. As a result\, a full list of Lie symmetry extensions t
ogether with their corresponding families of potentials in the class V is
presented.\n \n\n Everyone is welcome to attend\n\nhttp://indico.ictp.it

DESCRIPTION:\n Abstract: The notion of a one-dimensional\, a two-dimension
al\, or a three-dimensional geometric object is fairly intuitive. A natura
l way to think of dimensions makes it relatively easy to define\, though n
ot necessarily easy to visualise\, geometric objects also in four or five
dimensions or indeed in n dimension for any positive integer n. It is howe
ver much harder to make sense of the notion of a geometric object with a n
on-integer (fractal) dimension\, such as 1.5 for example\, and to imagine
what such an object might look like. In this introductory talk I will give
an elementary alternative definition of the dimension of a geometric obje
ct and show how this definition extends easily to fractal dimensions. I wi
ll also give some simple examples of geometric objects with fractal dimens
ions. I will discuss the way in which the geometry of many (in fact\, most
) objects in nature can arguably be modelled by geometric shapes with frac
tal dimension rather than the regular shapes familiar in classical Euclide
an geometry. Finally\, I will describe how objects with fractal dimensions
occur naturally in certain areas of mathematics such as Dynamical Systems

DESCRIPTION:\n Abstract: The Sato-Tate conjecture\, originally stated for
elliptic curves without complex multiplication\, predicts the equidistribu
tion of the normalized Frobenius traces with respect to the Sato-Tate meas
ure\, given by the pushforward of the Haar measure on SU(2). We would like
to work on an analogous question for abelian varieties of dimension g > 1
\; the generalized Sato-Tate conjecture\, introduced by Serre\, which pred
icts the equidistribution on a certain compact Lie group: the Sato-Tate gr
oup. In 1966\, Serre presented remarkable links between the Mumford-Tate g
roup and the Sato-Tate group. Thus\, the algebraic Sato-Tate group appears
as an intermediate group between the Mumford-Tate group and the Sato-Tate
group. Indeed\, if the algebraic Sato-Tate conjecture holds for some part
icular abelian variety A of dimension g > 1\, we can obtain the Sato-Tate
group and try to deduce some new instances of the generalized Sato-Tate co
njecture. The main goal of this talk is to present new results in the dire
ction of the algebraic Sato-Tate conjecture\, building on the previous wor
k of Serre\, Kedlaya and Banaszak.\n\nhttp://indico.ictp.it/event/8941/

ricing in a generalized jump mixed fractional Brownian motion\n Abstract:
I will present a new framework for pricing the European currency option in
the case where the spot exchange rate follows a generalized mixed fractio
nal Brownian motion with jumps (hereafter GJMFBM). To capture the behavior
s of exchange rate\, the combination of Poisson jumps and generalized mixe
d fractional Brownian motion is introduced. To derive the pricing formula
for some options\, we firstly derive a generalized mixed fractional Girsan
ov theorem and some results regarding the quasi-conditional expectation th
at we will need for the rest of the paper. Then analytic pricing formulas
for European currency option and exchange option are obtained using the eq
uivalent martingale measure. Finally\, through some numerical experiments
and discussion we show that the GJMFBM model is different with the other p
revious ones.\n\n14:30 - 14:45 - Un Gyong Ri (Kim Il Sung University)Prese

DESCRIPTION:\n Abstract: It has long been known that the distribution of t

rizontal distribution of zeros\, but finer information about primes seems
to be connected to the vertical distribution of zeros. By studying the pai

lead to the conjecture that the statistics of vertical spacings should fo
llow the GUE distribution from random matrix theory. I will survey some of
the methods used to prove the existence of large and small gaps between z
eros of the zeta function\, highlighting the state-of-the-art and the limi
tations. I will also discuss some recent joint work (with Hung Bui and Dan
Goldston) were we prove the existence of small gaps between distinct zero
s of the zeta function\, a result that previous methods seem incapable of
establishing.\n\nhttp://indico.ictp.it/event/8973/

ce minimizing the area among all the ones with smaller genus. On the other
hand\, after the seminal work of Federer and Fleming\, it is always possi
ble to find a mass minimizing current spanned by $\\gamma$. When the Feder
er fleming solution is smooth (up to the boundary) \, it naturally coincid
es with the Dougals Rado solution. In co-dimension one\, thanks to the sem
inal work of De Giorgi and Hardt-Simon\, this is indeed the case. In highe
r co-dimension the question is not yet completely understood and new pheno
mena might appear. In this talk\, after surveying the known results\, I wi
ll present the construction of a smooth curve in a 4 dimensional Riemannia
n manifold which spans an area minimizing surface with infinite genus. Thi
s is based on a joint work with C. De Lellis and J. Hirsch.\n\nhttp://indi
