DESCRIPTION:In a remarkabale booklet `The sensual(quadratic) form'\, J.H.
Conway introduces an elegant approach to integral binary quadratic forms.
The main tool is a 3 valence tree which is in fact an SL_2(Z)-equivariant
retract of the 2-dimensional hyperbolic space. Let A be the ring of integ
ers of a quadratic imaginary extension of the field of rational numbers. T
he 3-dimensional hyperbolic space has a 2-dimensional\, GL_2(A)-invariant
retract. The retract is a CAT(0) complex. In this lecture I will explain h
ow the retract can be used to derive some results on hermitian binary form
s over the ring A. This is a joint work with Mladen Bestvina.\n\nhttps://i

DESCRIPTION:The dicritical divisor coming out of integrable holonomie in d
ynamical systems which belong to the domain of real analysis gets miraculo
usly married to the jacobian problem of algebraic geometry. This is a gods
end for making inroads into the fortress jacobian. It also provides a shar
p tool for studying local functions on algebraic as well as analytical sur
faces. Although the jacobian problem is restricted to zero characteristic\
, it is amazing that the dicriticals\, born out of real analysis\, throw l
ight on the theory of local rings of prime characteristic. We owe the real
and complex theory of\ndicriticals to the pioneers like Artal\, Cassou-No
gues\, Eisenbud\, Fourrier\, Mattei\, Moussu\, Neumann\, Norbury and Rudol
ph. .........(continue)\n\nhttps://indico.tifr.res.in/indico/conferenceDis

as at TIFR in the latter half of 2004\, while the complete proof was publi
shed at the end of 2009. In this talk I will focus on the consequences of
Serre's conjecture which verify the conjectures of Langlands and Fontaine-
Mazur for rank 2\, odd motives over the rationals. In particular\, we can
verify Artin's conjecture for 2-dimensional odd representations of the abs
olute Galois group of rationals. In the unlikely event that time permits I
will work out an exercise which uses this consequence to prove base chang
e for automorphic forms for odd A_5-type extensions of the rationals.\n\nh

DTSTAMP;VALUE=DATE-TIME:20201025T201850Z
UID:indico-event-472@cern.ch
DESCRIPTION:A degree n differential form on a manifold (or scheme) X is
generally thought of as a linear combination of n-th exterior products o
f 1-forms on X. I will discuss a more intuitive definition of such n-f
orms\, which sheds some light on a number of their properties. This will
be illustrated by considering the notion of a connection form on a princip
al G-bundle on X and its associated curvature 2-form. If time permits\, I
will then examine how these notions ca be extended to a categorified conte
xt. One is then led to consider a gerbe endowed with differential data con
sisting of a connection and a certain 2-form known as the B-field. Such da
ta then geometrically determines an associated curvature 3-form satisfying
a higher version of the Bianchi identity.\n\nhttps://indico.tifr.res.in/i

DESCRIPTION:In my talk\, I will explain how covex projective geometry is a

the quotient of a properly open convex $\\omega$ set by a discrete group o
f projective transformation Gamma. The basic example of such manifold is
the quotient of the hyperbolic space by a discrete group of isometry. Thi
s kind of manifold carry a natural measure. A lot of people have studied t
he case where the manifold M is compact. I will explain what is known when
the dimension of M is 2 and how to construct such a manifold when\n$\\ome
ga$ is not the hyperbolic space. This will\nlead us\, to the construction
of discrete subgroup \nof $SL_n+1(\\mathbb (R)$.\n\nhttps://indico.tif

DESCRIPTION:A property(P) of Banach spaces is said to be a finite-dimensio
nal property ((FD)-property\, for short) if it holds in all finite dimensi
onal Banach spaces but fails in each infinite dimensional Banach space. A
classical example of such a property is provided by the compactness of the
closed unit ball of a Banach space. At a less trivial level\, the equival
ence of absolute and unconditional convergence of series in a Banach space
provides yet another but perhaps one of the most imporatant examples of t
his phenomenon. We discuss some of the issues arising out of this\, in pa
rticular\, how it necessitates the introduction of Nuclear spaces (due to
Grothendieck) on the one hand and to the geometry of Banach spaces on the
other.\n\nhttps://indico.tifr.res.in/indico/conferenceDisplay.py?confId=50

DESCRIPTION:At the beginning of this century\, the physicists Razumov and
Stroganov discovered a certain sequence of integers appearing in the study
of some model for `quantum spin chains'. This sequence was already known
by combinatorists in the enumeration of various classes of combinatorial o
bjects: alternating sign matrices\, 3D partitions of integers\, tilling of
hexagons on a triangular lattice. In the last 30 years\, intensive studi
es have been made about these objects\, beautiful and simple conjectured e
numeration formulae had to wait for a long time before being proved. But m
any researches remain to be done in order to `understand' these formulae a
nd the relationship with quantum spin chains model in physics. No prerequi
sites are needed for this\ncolloquium\, neither in physics nor in combinat
orics. I will give a short introduction to enumerative combinatorics and w
ill finish by introducing a recent algebraic approach with operators and c

DESCRIPTION:The Isomorphism conjecture of Farrell and Jones asserts that t

the L-theoretic obstruction groups of a discrete group can be computed in
terms of the virtually cyclic subgroups of the group. A `virtually cyclic'
group\, by definition\, contains a cyclic subgroup of finite index. The
Isomorphism Conjecture implies several fundamental conjectures\, for examp
le the vanishing of the Whitehead group for torsion free discrete groups\,
Borel conjecture\, Novikov conjecture\, etc. We will study the conjecture
for groups acting on trees and see under what conditions on the vertex st
abilizers the conjecture can be deduced for the group.\n\nhttps://indico.

DESCRIPTION:Given an effectively parameterized family of canonically polar
ized manifolds the Kahler-Einstein metrices on the fibres induce a hermiti
an metric on the relative canonical bundle. We use a global elliptic equa
tion to show that this metric is strictly positive and give estimates. For
degenerating families it turns out that the curvature form on the total s
pace can be controlled. By fiber integration it is shown that the generali
zed Weil-Petersson form on the base possesses an extension as a positive c
urrent. In this situation\, the determinant line bundles associated to the
relative canonical bundle on the total space can be extended. As an appl
ication we obtain a short analytic proof of the quasiprojectivity of the m
oduli space ${\\mathcal M}_{\\mathrm {can}}$ of canonically polarized vari
eties. Further applications about curvature on higher direct image sheaves
and hyperbolicity of moduli spaces are mentioned.\n\nhttps://indico.tifr.

DESCRIPTION:In arithmetic\, Galois representations are one of the fundamen
tal objects of interest and they arise quite naturally in several places.
The Galois representations coming from cuspidal automorphic forms on $\\ma
thrm{GL}_n(\\mathbb {A}_{\\mathbb {Q}$ are expected to be irreducible as r
epresentatins of the absolute Galois group of $\\mathbb{Q}$. However\, the
local representations\, obtained by restricting to a decomposition subgro
up\, can be reducible. In this talk\, we will show how a generalized notio
n of ordinariness for automorphic forms implies the reducibility of such l
ocal representations. We also show that non-ordinariness implies irreducib
ility in certain cases. When $n=2$ and $p=2$\, we will also discuss the se
misimplicity of local Galois representations attached to ordinary cuspidal
eigenforms\, following the approach of Ghate-Vatsal for odd primes. This
requires proving some new results in Hida theory for the prime $p=2$.\n\nh

Furthermore\, they showed that the second part of the Birch and Swinnerton

d by the Heegner point in the group of K-rational points on E is the produ
ct of the order of the Shafarevich-Tate group of E over K and certain oth

an odd prime divides this factor\, then it divides the order of the Shafa

ult was extended to $\\mathbb{R}^n$ independently by Howard and Reese (199
2) and by Strichartz (1993) where the derivatives and antiderivatives are
substituted by integral powers of Laplacian on $\\mathbb{R}^n$. While iti
s plausible to extend this theorem for other Riemannian manifolds\, Strich
artz showed that the result holds true for Heisenberg groups\, but fails f
or hyperbolic spaces. Hyperbolic spaces are the most distinguished protot
ypes of the rank one Riemannian symmetric spaces of noncompact type. Stric
hartz's counter example can be extended to this larger class. In this talk
we shall try to find the root cause of this failure and explore the possi
bility of extending this theorem for this class of spaces.\n\nhttps://indi

DESCRIPTION:Let $\\phi = (f\,g): C^2 \\rightarrow C^2$ be a polynomial map
of the plane over the field C of complex numbers with its Jacobian nonzer
o constant. The Jacobian conjecture asserts that $\\phi$ must be an automo
rphism. We say that a point $P_infty \\in P^2 \\C^2$ of the complex projec
tive plane P^2 is a `quasifinite' (w.r.t. \\phi)$ if there exists a sequen
ce \n$\\{P_i\\}$ in $C^2 \\in P^2$ converging\nto $P_\\infty$ such that th
e image $\\{\\phi(P_i)\\}$ converges to a point in\nC^2. In this talk I wi

. The sumset A+B is the set of all elements of G that can be written in th

termining properties of the h-fold sumset hA is a direct problem for addit
ion in groups. In particular\, Langrange's theorem that every nonnegative
integer is a sum of four squares is an example of a direct problem. Also\,
for a finite set A\, denoting its cardinality by |A|\, finding a lower bo
und for |A+B| in terms of |A|and |B| is a direct problem. An inverse probl

some information about A. In this lecture\, first we have some introducto

DESCRIPTION:Kaplansky introduced the notion of a Baer ring in 1955 which h
as\nclose links to $C^*$-algebras and von Neumann algebras. Maeda and Hatt
ori\ngeneralized this notion to that of a Rickart Ring in 1960. A ring is
called\nBaer (right Rickart) if the right annihilator of any subset (singl
e element)\nof $R$ is generated by an idempotent of $R$.\nUsing the endomo
rphism ring of a module\, we recently extended these two\nnotions to a gen
eral module theoretic setting:\nLet $R$ be any ring\, $M$ be an $R$-module
and $S =End_R(M)$. $M$ is said to be\na {\\it Baer module} if the right a
nnihilator in $M$ of any subset of\n$S$ is generated by an idempotent of $
S$. Equivalently\, the left\nannihilator in $S$ of any submodule of $M$ is
generated by an idempotent\nof $S$. The module $M$ is called a {\\it Rick
art module} if the right\nannihilator in $M$ of any single element of $S$
is generated by an\nidempotent of $S$\, equivalently\, $r_M(\\phi)=Ker \\p
hi \\leq^\\oplus\nM$ for every $\\phi$ in $S$. In this talk we will compar
e and contrast\nthe two notions and present their properties. Endomorphism
ringsof these modules \nand their direct sums will be discussed. We will\
npresent some recent developments in this theory including a dual notion.\

DESCRIPTION:Recently the main conjecture of non-commutative Iwasawa theory
for totally \nreal fields was proven under the assumption of vanishing of
certain\n$\\mu$ invariant. The proof reduces the non-commutative main con
jecture\nto a family commutative main conjecture (which are known due to W
iles) and \ncertain congruences between special values of Artin $L$-functi
ons (which\nare proven using the Deligne-Ribet $q$-expansion principle). M
ore\ngenerally\, one can reduce non-commutative main conjectures (for any
\nmotive) to commutative main conjectures and certain congruences between\
nspecial values of $L$-functions of Artin twists of the motive. This is\nu
sually referred to as the strategy of Burns-Kato. I will present a \nformu
lation of the non-commutative main conjecture and the strategy of \nBurns-
Kato. The construction of non-commutative $p$-adic $L$-function and the\np
roof of non-commutative main conjecture go hand in hand in the Burns-Kato
\nstrategy. But now we know enough about $K_1$ of Iwasawa algebras to \nco
nstruct non-commutative $p$-adic $L$-functions by just proving certain \nc
ongruences (the {\\it non-commutative Kummer congruences}) between special
\nvalues of $L$-functions.\n\nhttps://indico.tifr.res.in/indico/conferenc

\nstructure of the fine Selmer group. We will formulate analogues of thes
e\nconjectures in the setting of modular forms and also for $\\Lambda$-ad
ic\nforms. We will relate the structure of the `big' fine Selmer group of
a\n$\\Lambda$-adic form to the fine Selmer groups associated to the\nind
ividual modular forms which are specializations of the $\\Lambda$-adic\nfo
rm. We will also compare the usual Greenberg Selmer groups (resp. fine\nS
elmer group) in a family of congruent modular forms associated to a\n$\\La
mbda$-adic form.\n\nhttps://indico.tifr.res.in/indico/conferenceDisplay.py

DESCRIPTION:I will give a formulation of Grothendieck duality for derived
algebraic\nstacks. These are ordinary Artin/D-M stacks whose structure she
af can be\nenriched to a sheaf of multiplicative cohomology theories. In o
ur\nformulation\, following Toen\, Vessozi and Lurie\, these objects are\n
$(\\infty\,1)$-topoi equipped with a structure sheaf of $E_{\\infty}$-ring
s.\nThe category of quasi-coherent modules over such derived stacks form\n
symmetric monoidal stable model categories\, which are natural homotopical
\ngeneralizations of abelian categories.\n\nI will relate duality in this
context to certain computational aspects of\nstable homotopy theory. It is
common to have generalized cohomology\ntheories arise as homotopy global
sections of certain derived stacks.\nExamples of these are the theory of t
opological modular forms\, real\n$K$-theory\, real Morava E-theories and s
table homotopy itself. Computing the\ncoefficient rings of these theories
involve computing Ext in a category of\ncomodules over a Hopf algebroid\,
which is like a stacky version of group\ncohomology. The associated ordina
ry Tate cohomology object can be\ninterpreted concretely in terms of deriv
ed duality.\n\nhttps://indico.tifr.res.in/indico/conferenceDisplay.py?conf

SUMMARY:On the dynamics of holomorphic correspondences on the 2-sphere

DESCRIPTION:We shall look at a couple of equidistribution results for holo
morphic\ncorrespondences on the 2-sphere. Our results have the following\
ncharacter: if F is a holomorphic correspondence on the 2-sphere\, then\,\
nunder certain conditions\, F admits an equilibrium measure \\mu\, and\,\n
for a generic point p in the sphere\, the normalized sums of point\nmasses
carried by the pre-images of p under successive iterates of\nF converge t
o \\mu. Now\, let F^t denote the transpose of F.\nUnder the condition d_{t
op}(F) > d_top(F^t)\, where d_{top} denotes\nthe topological degree\, our
result is a small refinement of a set of\nrecent results by Dinh and Sibon
y. However\, for most interesting\ncorrespondences on the 2-sphere\, d_top
(F) \\leq d_top(F^t). This\nis certainly the case for the correspondences
introduced by Bullett and\nPenrose --- who were among the first to introdu
ce these objects. When\nd_top(F) \\leq d_top(F^t)\, the existence of equil
ibrium measures\,\nand equidistribution results\, seem to depend on whethe
r or not F admits\na repeller. We shall discuss what this means\, and exam
ine some aspects\nof the proof of the relevant equidistribution theorem. T
his is joint\nwork with Shrihari Sridharan.\n\nhttps://indico.tifr.res.in/

DESCRIPTION:Borcherds products are special automorphic forms for the ortho
gonal\ngroup $O_{2\,n}(\\R)$ of signature $(2\,n)$\, lifts from weakly mo
dular\nforms. To state explicit examples we identify $O_{2\,2}$ with $SL_2
\n\\times SL_2$ and $O_{2\,3}$ with the Siegel modular group of degree\n$2
$.\n\nLet $j$ be the modular invariant with Fourier coefficients $c(n)$\,\
nnormalized with $c(0)=0$. Then one of the most famous examples is\ngiven
by\n\n$$j(z)-j(w) = p^{-1} \\prod_{m=1\, n\\geq -1}^{\\infty} \\left( 1 -
p^m q^n\\right)^{c(nm)} \n\\quad \\left(p:=e^{2 \\pi i z}\, q:=e^{2 \\pi
i w}\\right)\, $$\n\nrelated to the denominator formula of the monster Lie
algebra. This\nformula had been known before by Koike\, Zagier. New was t
he link to\nthe Moonshine conjecture and a systematic\nconstruction of aut
omorphic products called Borcherds lifts due to\nBorcherds.\nThe case\nof
Siegel modular forms has been first studied by Gritsenko and\nNikulin. The
y found a deep connection between the Igusa function\n$\\Delta_5$ and a ce
rtain Kac-Moody algebra with implications in\nrepresentation theory. Borch
erds proved that the lifts have Heegner\ndivisors\, and conversely Bruinie
r proved that in principle every\nmodular form with Heegner divisors is a
Borcherds lift. \nSince modular\nforms are usually given by Fourier expans
ion (for example Eisenstein\nseries\, Theta series\, Maass lifts) it is no
t easy to decide if a\nconcrete given form is a Borcherds lift. \n\nRecent
ly we discovered a\nhidden property of Borcherds lifts giving a complete\n
characterization. In this talk we describe the property\, sketch the\nproo
f and give applications. This is a joint project with Atsushi\nMurase.\n\n

DESCRIPTION:ABSTRACT: \n\nDual reductive pairs are important algebraic obj
ects in\nrepresentation theory of p-adic groups.\nThese were studied by Ro
ger Howe for the symplectic group\, and through the\nWeil representation o
f the symplectic group\, play an important role in the\nsubject.\nIn this
lecture\, we classify dual reductive pairs in all excetional Lie\ngroups.
As a step in this\ndirection\, we also discuss classification of exception
al Lie groups over\ngeneral fields in terms of Octonion and Jordan algebr
as\, and then use\nHasse principle for Galois cohomology to classify them
over number fields.\n\nhttps://indico.tifr.res.in/indico/conferenceDisplay

DESCRIPTION:ABSTRACT\nLocal Langlands correspondences for reductive groups
generalise\nthe Artin reciprocity law from the local class field theory.
These\ncorrespondences are expected to give natural partitions of irreduci
ble\nrepresentations into finite sets\, called L-packets. There were recen
tly\nbig breakthroughs regarding them in the case of classical p-adic grou
ps\n(other then GL-groups which were settled earlier).\n\nFrom the other s
ide\, the square integrable packets emerge naturally\nconsidering some ver
y basic problems of (pure) harmonic analysis of these groups.\n\nIn our le
cture we shall discuss this connection\, and how crucial data of\none theo
ry correspond to the crucial data of the other theory (this is\nnice insta
nce of unity which we sometimes meet in mathematics). We shall\ndiscuss ho
w one can describe elements of packets and related questions\,\nlike for e
xample\, given an irreducible square integrable representation\, what are
the other elements of the packet etc.. All this is directly related to th
e classification of tempered representations and non-unitary dual in terms
of cuspidal representations. Such classification in the case of GL-groups
is given by Bernstein-Zelevinsly theory.\n\nThe other topic that we shall
discuss in the lectures is the\nunitarizability problem for classical gro
ups. We recall that soon after\ncompletion of Bernstein-Zelevinsky theory\
, the unitary duals in the\nGL-case were classified (giving the same answe
r in the archimedean case). We expect pretty explicit picture of the unita
ry duals of classical groups\, although much more complicated then in the
GL-case (recall that similarly the classification of the irreducible squar
e integrable representations is substantially more complicated for these g
roups then for GL-groups). For getting the answer\, several difficult ques
tions remains to be settled. We shall discuss what shape of classification
we can expect and possible strategy for solving the problem.\n\nhttps://i

DESCRIPTION:ABSTRACT\n\nA Rogers-Ramanujan (R-R) type identity is a q-hype
rgeometric identity which is in the form of a series equal to a product\,
with the series representing the generating function of partitions whose p
arts satisfy\ndifference conditions and the product being the generating
function of partitions whose parts satisfy congruence conditions. R-R type
identities arise in a variety of settings ranging from the study of verte
x operators in Lie algebras to exactly solvable models in physics. One of
the deepest\nR-R type identities is a 1967 theorem of G\\"ollnitz. We will
describe a new approach to the G\\"ollnitz theorem using the combinatoric
s of words and view the theorem as emerging from an incredible three para
meter q-hypergeometric identity. As a consequence we get combinatorial ins
ights into Jacobi's triple product identity for theta functions and certai
n partition congruences modulo powers of 2. Companion results to G\\"ollni
tz's theorem can be constructed as well. We will also briefly indicate wha
t lies beyond G\\"ollnitz's theorem in four free parameters.\nThe talk wil
l include joint work with George Andrews\, Basil Gordon\,\nand Alexander B
erkovich.\n\nhttps://indico.tifr.res.in/indico/conferenceDisplay.py?confId

DESCRIPTION:Let $\\mathrm G$ be a connected reductive group over\na nonarc

ble'\nrepresentations of $\\mathrm G(F)$ (in vector spaces over\n$\\mathbb
{C}$) can be partitioned in a certain natural way\ninto equivalence classe
s\, called $L$-packets.\n\nHere we will consider an `unramified'\n$\\mathr
m G$\, and the unramified representations of\n$\\mathrm G(k)$. Such repres
entations can be parameterized\nby pairs $(K\, \\lambda)$\, where $K$ is a
so called\n`hyperspecial' compact subgroup of $\\mathrm G(k)$ and\n$\\lam
bda$ is a character of a maximally split maximal torus\n$\\mathrm T$ of $\
\mathrm G$. Let $\\tau_{K\, \\lambda}$\nbe the representation associated t
o a pair $(K\, \\lambda)$.\n\nWe will first describe when two such represe
ntations\n$\\tau_{K\, \\lambda}$ and $\\tau_{K'\, \\lambda'}$ are isomorph
ic.\nNow given an unramified $L$-packet we can :\n(i) think of its element
s as\n$\\tau_{K\, \\lambda}$ for certain (equivalence classes of)\npairs $
(K\, \\lambda)$\; and\n(ii) realize the set of these elements as a princip
al\nhomogeneous space for a certain natural finite abelian group.\n\nWe wi
ll describe how the parametrization in (ii) is related\nto the description
in (i).\n\n\nIt has been well known for a while that\, using the so calle
d\nSatake isomorphism or otherwise\, one can attach to an unramified repre
sentation of an unramified group $\\mathrm G$\na Frobenius-twisted semisim
ple conjugacy class in the Langlands dual\ngroup $\\hat G$ of $\\mathrm G$
. We will generalize this result to\nan analogous class of representations
of a {\\em tamely ramified}\ngroup $\\mathrm G$. The key step in the proo
f is a description of the\nimage under the local Langlands correspondence
of the set of\ncharacters of a torus that are trivial on its `Iwahori subg

missible representation\nof ${\\bf G}(F)$. A result of C. Moeglin and J.-L

on of $\\pi$ at the\nidentity element of ${\\bf G}(F)$ give the dimensions
of certain spaces of\ndegenerate Whittaker forms.\n\nWe discuss how to ex
tend their result to residual characteristic $2$.\nThe outline of the proo
f is the same as in the original paper\nof Moeglin and Waldspurger\, but\n
certain constructions need to be modified to accommodate the case\nof even

$q$ represents $u$ over\nthe rational functions on $X$. We will prove that
for any point $x$ in $X$\nthe space $q$ represents the function $u$ in th

set of \ninvolutions in a Weyl group (for example the symmetric group) can
be viewed as a basis of a vector space on which the Weyl group acts. This
representation of the Weyl group can be deformed to a q-analogue which is
a representation of the Hecke algebra. From this representation one can e
xtract some new polynomials indexed by a pair of involutions which general
ize the polynomials introduced in 1979 in my paper with Kazhdan.\n\nhttps:

e\, for Grassmannians of\ntypes B\, C\, and D. These can be used to quick
ly compute K-theoretic Pieri\ncoefficients\, which are alternating sums of
triple intersection numbers.\n\nOur method generalizes a geometric argume
nt used by Hodge to prove the\nclassical Pieri rule\, and requires us to e
xamine the projected Richardson\nvarieties in the underlying projective sp
ace of the Grassmannian. The\nequations defining these projected Richards
on varieties have applications\noutside of K-theory as well. Time permitt

DESCRIPTION:Pythagoras and Euclid had limited tools\, but unlimited curios
ity. Understanding interesting geometric objects and phenomena beyond tria
ngles and circles and their intersections needs more sophisticated tools (
technology) from algebra and analysis. These tools were developed only in
the last three hundred years. Modern functional\nanalysis\, Lie groups and
representation theory may be seen as natural continuations of what Pythag
oras and Euclid started.\nSome of the most interesting features of the pro
gress of Euclidean geometry were repeated at an accelerated rate in the de
velopment of special relativity and relativistic quantum theory\, almost a
s if ``ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny" in the words of biologists. What
took more than two thousand years in the history of Euclidean geometry was
in some sense repeated in modern physics just in the span of about 50 yea
rs!\n\nThis talk will give an overview of this surprising history ranging
from Pythagoras (500 BC) to Wigner (1940)\, and a popular account of the n
ew tools from algebra and analysis which made the modern progress possible
.\n\nDisclaimer: The speaker is not a historian\, and some of the above st
ory involves a fanciful reconstruction of history. However\, he promise to
try his best that at least the mathematics will be correct.\n\nhttps://in

DESCRIPTION:Finite extremal set theory is concerned with the following gen

nt set and we\nhave some restriction on the possible intersection sizes of
pairs of sets in\n$F$. What is the maximum number of subsets that $F$ can
contain?\nSurprisingly\, solutions to various special cases of this probl
em have deep\nimplications in many other areas\, including coding theory\,
geometry\, and\ncomputer science. A particular famous example is due to F
rankl and Rodl\, who\nsolved a 250-dollar problem of Erdos by proving that
if $n$ is a multiple of\n4\nand $n/4$ is excluded as an intersection size
\, then $|F|<(1.99)^n$. We\nextend this result by showing that if some add
itional (rather mild)\nrestrictions are placed on the possible intersectio
n sizes\, then $|F|<\n(1.63)^n$. The talk is intended for a general mathem
atical audience. This is\njoint work with Vojtech Rodl.\n\nhttps://indico.

DESCRIPTION:Algebraic cobordism gives a lifting of the topological theory
of\ncomplex cobordism to the setting of algebraic geometry. As in the case
of complex cobordism\, algebraic cobordism is closely related to formal g
roup laws\, which allows one to construct many new theories from algebraic
cobordism. In particular\, algebraic $K$-theory and the Chow ring can be
obtained in this way. It is an interesting question to ask whether various
adequate equivalences for algebraic cycles can be lifted up to the level
of algebraic cobordism cycles. After briefly introducing the definition
and construction of algebraic cobordism\, I will talk about analogues of w
ell-studied equivalence relations at the level of algebraic cobordism cycl
es and compare them with each other. In particular\, I will discuss the be
haviour of algebraic cobordism modulo numerical equivalence as a cohomolog
y theory. This work is done jointly with Jinhyun Park.\n\nhttps://indico.t

nforms was studied in 1960's and in early 1970's by H. Bass\, A. Bak\, A.\

or\nnatural inclusions of local Weyl modules. We also introduce the notio
n of\n"partition overlay pattern" (POP) to reinterpret the indexing set of
\nthese bases. The notion of a POP leads naturally to the notion of the\n"

DESCRIPTION:We often encounter sequences of representations of a family of
groups. For example\, the cohomology of ordered configurations of n di
stinct points on a manifold is a representation of the symmetric group Sn
. Similarly\, the homology of the congruence subgroup of level m ins
ide GLn(Z) is a representation of GLn(Z/mZ). As n grows to infini
ty the two examples above become\, in a sense\, stable as representations.
Stable representations can be thought of as finitely generated objects in
a suitable functor category. This point of view is due to Church-Ellenber
g-Farb who introduced and studied such a category called FI-modules. We pr
ovide an introduction to FI-modules and explain what it entails about the
examples above.\n\nhttps://indico.tifr.res.in/indico/conferenceDisplay.py?

DESCRIPTION:Abstract:\n\nAny eigenvalue of the Laplace operator\, acting o
n the function space of a hyperbolic surface $S$\, below $1/4$ is called a
{\\it small or exceptional} eigenvalue of $S$. \nHistorically\, Selberg
’s $1/4$-conjecture was a motivation for the study of these eigenvalues.
\nExistence of hyperbolic surfaces having small eigenvalues was first obt
ained by B. Randol (1974\, \\cite{Ra}). \nLater P. Buser found a simpler c
onstruction of such surfaces (1977\, \\cite{Bu}).\nHe also found initial b
ounds on the number of small eigenvalues of a given surface depending on
the topology of the surface (1977\, \\cite{Bu}). \n\nLater P. Schumtz (199
1\, \\cite{Sch}) sharpened the methods developed by Buser and from his bou
nds he (and later Buser also) conjectured that the number of these eigenva
lues of a closed hyperbolic surface is at most the Euler characteristic of
the surface. An extended version of this conjecture was proved by Otal an
d Rosas (2009\, \\cite{OR}). In their paper Otal-Rosas asked if their resu
lt can be extended to all smooth surfaces. In a series of three papers \\c
ite{BMM1}\, \\cite{BMM2} and \\cite{BMM3}\, joint with Werner Ballmann and
Henrik Matthiesen\, we have answered an extended version of this last que

DESCRIPTION:Abstract:\n\nAny algebraic variety $X$ over an algebraically c
losed field $k$ is\nassociated with its Albanese variety $Alb_X.$ Accordin
g to Rojtman\, for\nsmooth proper $X\,$ the torsion part of the group of r
ational points\n$Alb_X(k)$ is canonically isomorphic to $CH_0(X)_{tor}^0\,
$ the torsion\npart of the degree zero part of the Chow group of zero cycl
es. For a curve\n$X\,$ this isomorphism agrees with the Abel-Jacobi isomor
phism\n$CH^1(X)_{alg}\\longrightarrow Pic_X(k)\,$ where $CH^1(X)_{alg}$ is
the\nsubgroup of $CH^1(X)$ consisting of algebraically trivial cycles and
\n$Pic_X$ is the Picard variety.\n\nTo extend this picture to other Chow g
roups\, Samuel introduced the concept\nof regular homomorphisms. For divis
ors and zero cycles\, the map $alb_X$\nand the Abel-Jacobi isomorphism are
universal with respect to regular\nhomomorphisms. The case of codimension
$2$ cycles was also treated by\nMurre.\n\nIn this talk\, we explain how t

g constant scalar curvature Kahler (cscK) metrics or extremal Kahler metri
cs. Even in the special case of Kahler-Einstein metrics\, starting with th
e work of Yau and Aubin in the 1970's\, a complete solution was obtained o
nly very recently by Chen-Donaldson-Sun (and Tian). Their main results say
s that a Fano manifold admits a Kahler-Einstein metric if and only if it i
s K-stable. I will survey some of these recent developments\, and then foc
us on a refinement obtained in collaboration with Gabor Szekelyhidi. This
has led to the discovery of new Kahler-Einstein manifolds. If time permits
\, I will also talk about some open problems on constructing cscK and extr
emal metrics on blow-ups of extremal manifolds\, and mention some recent p

DESCRIPTION:Abstract:\nA domain in the complex plane is called a quadratur
e domain if it admits a\nglobal Schwarz reflection map. Topology of quadra
ture domains has\nimportant applications to physics\, and is intimately re
lated to iteration\nof Schwarz reflection maps.\n\nWe will look at a speci
fic one-parameter family of Schwarz reflection\nmaps\, and show that every
post-critically finite map in this family arises\nas the mating of a post
-critically finite quadratic anti-holomorphic\npolynomial and the ideal tr
iangle group. Time permitting\, we will also\ndescribe a combinatorial mod
el for the ``connectedness locus'' of this\nfamily.\n\nJoint work with Seu

DESCRIPTION:Abstract:\nBounding automorphic $L$-functions on the critical
line $\\text{Re}(s) =\n1/2$ is a central problem in the analytic theory o
f $L$-functions. The\nfunctional equation and the Phragmen-Lindel{\\" o}f
principle from complex\nanalysis yield the convexity bound $L(1/2+it\,\\pi
)\\ll\nC(\\pi\,t)^{1/4+\\varepsilon}$ where $C(\\pi\,t)$ is the ``analytic
conductor"\nof the $L$-function. Lindel{\\" o}f hypothesis\, which is a c
onsequence of\nthe Grand Riemann Hypothesis (GRH)\, predicts that the bo
und\n$C(\\pi\,t)^\\varepsilon$ for any $\\varepsilon>0$. Any bound with ex
ponent\nsmaller than $1/4$ is called a sub-convexity bound. In this contex
t the\nWeyl exponent $1/6$\, which is one-third of the way down from conve
xity\ntowards Lindel{\\" o}f\, is a known barrier which has been achieved
only for\na handful of families. First sub-convexity bound is proved by\nH
ardy-Littlewood and Weyl independently for the Riemann zeta function.\n\n

DESCRIPTION:Abstract: Jaco-Shalen and Johannson developed in 1979\, what
are now called JSJ decompositions\, for Haken manifolds with incompressibl
e boundary. This decomposes the three manifold into Canonical simple piece
s and fibered pieces. Johannson also proved that any homotopy equivalence
between two such Haken manifolds can be deformed to carry simple pieces to
simple pieces and fibered pieces to fibered pieces. Scott and Swarup deve
loped recently a similar decomposition for Poincare Duality pairs of dimen
sions n+2\, n>0 (think of these as aspherical manifolds with incompressibl
e boundary). We show now that any isomorphism in the fundamental groups b
etween two Poincare Duality pairs has the same property\, that is\, it is
independent of the boundary structure. The theory involves the so called a
lmost invariant sets over virtually polycyclic groups\, which correspond t
o immersions over annuli and tori in the three dimensional case. This is j
oint work with Lawrence Reeves and Peter Scott.\n\nhttps://indico.tifr.res

DESCRIPTION:Abstract:\nMod $p$ representation theory of $p$-adic reductive
groups originated with the work of Barthel and Livne from the mid ninetie

F)$. Though there has been a lot of recent progress\, a complete classific
ation of all smooth mod $p$ representations of $G(F)$ is achieved only in
very few cases\, essentially when $G=GL(2)$ or one of its variants and whe
n $F=Q_p$. The case of $GL(2\,Q_p)$ follows from the works of Barthel-Livn
e and Breuil. In this talk we will survey the case of $GL(2\,Q_p)$ and ind
icate an approach to study this question for $GL(2\,F)$ where $F$ is an un
ramified extension of $Q_p$. This latter work is joint with Arindam Jana.\

DESCRIPTION:Abstract\nA fibration\, loosely speaking\, is generalization o
f the concept of a fiber bundle. For a given fibration\, we can talk about
its two “directions”: base and fibers. Suppose we are given
Hermitian metrics on the base and fibers of a holomorphic fibration su
ch that the holomorphic sectional curvatures have same signs on the base a
nd fibers. Then\, we show that the given metrics in the two “directions
” can be used to construct a warped product metric on the total space su
ch that this metric has the same sign of the holomorphic sectional curvatu
re on the total space as that of the given metrics on the base and fibers.
The case of negative holomorphic sectional curvature was proved by Cheun
g in 1989. In this talk\, we shall focus on the positive holomorphic sect
ional curvature case.\n\nhttps://indico.tifr.res.in/indico/conferenceDispl

DESCRIPTION:Abstract:\nAny central simple algebra A over a field K is a fo
rm of a matrix algebra.\nFurther A/K comes equipped with a reduced norm ma
p which is obtained by\ntwisting the determinant function. Every element i
n the commutator\nsubgroup [A*\, A*] has reduced norm 1 and hence lies in
SL_1(A)\, the group\nof reduced norm one elements of A. Whether the rever
se inclusion holds was\nformulated as a question in 1943 by Tannaka and Ar
tin in terms of the\ntriviality of the reduced Whitehead group SK_1(A) :=
SL_1(A)/[A*\,A*].\n\nOne can define Whitehead groups more generally for an
y isotropic group and\nit turns out that the Tannaka-Artin question is a s
pecial case of the\nwell-known Kneser-Tits conjecture. The Whitehead group
detects the\nnon-rationality of the underlying variety of the algebraic g
roup and\ntherefore is an interesting albeit difficult invariant to study.
In this\ntalk\, we discuss these connections to rationality questions and
trace the\nprogress towards answering the Tannaka-Artin question\, which
becomes\nespecially interesting over low cohomological dimension fields.\n

DESCRIPTION:Abstract: \nWhen considering a variational problem\, one is i
nterested in its minimizers\, and more generally\, its critical points giv
en by the Euler-Lagrange equation. The critical points are typically speci
al geometries -- Einstein metrics\, Yang-Mills fields\, harmonic maps\, el
astic membranes etc. -- and one would like to flow a generic initial geome
try to a terminal special geometry. This is usually accomplished by consid
ering the gradient flow of the functional under consideration. The definit
ion of the gradient requires a choice of (Riemannian) metric on the domain
of the functional\, which to a large extent determines the analytical pro
perties of the gradient flow. \n\nIn this lecture\, we will discuss these
issues in the simplest example of closed real curves in the Euclidean plan
e under the influence of the elastic energy\, the average squared curvatur
e of the curve. The critical points are the so-called elastica found by Le
onard Euler in a beautiful paper of 1744. The usual gradient flow with res
pect to the variational $L^2$ metric is a 4th order non-linear parabolic P
DE requiring hard analysis. We show that by using a geometrically defined
metric\, the gradient flow becomes an ODE on a Hilbert manifold\, whose lo
ngtime existence and convergence to elastica requires nothing more than el
ementary ODE theory. We will intersperse the talk with numerical experimen
ts carried out via this approach.\n\nhttps://indico.tifr.res.in/indico/con

a fundamental\nquestion. Fano varieties always admits a non trivial semior
thogonal\ndecomposition. A natural class of Fano varieties come from the m

DESCRIPTION:Abstract:\nLet U be a convex subset of the Euclidean plane wit
h piecewise\nsmooth boundary. The Hot spots conjecture due to J. Rauch say
s that a\nglobal maxima of a second Neumann eigenfunction of U does not li
e in the\ninterior of U. In this talk I will give a brief survey of the kn
own\nresults and explain a new geometric approach that can be used to reco
ver\nsome of the known results in an unified way. These results are part o

DESCRIPTION:Abstract: Let $I=[0\,1)$ be the unity interval. Let $0A_g gives an immersion (
outside the hyperelliptic locus) of the moduli space of complex curves of
genus g into the moduli space of principally polarized abelian varieties
of dimension g. We study the local geometry of this immersion by means of
the natural riemannian (orbifold) structure induced on A_g from Siegel sp
ace. In particular two methods to give a bound on the dimension of the tot
ally geodesic subvarieties of A_g contained in M_g are discussed. The firs
t one (Colombo-Frediani-Ghigi) uses the second fundamental form associated
to the Torelli immersion and the second one (Ghigi-P-Torelli) uses instea
d a sort of local Fujita decomposition along geodesics. We recall that the
Shimura varieties are (algebraic) totally geodesic subvarieties of A_g an
d for g>>0\, according to the Coleman-Oort conjecture\, they should not b
e contained in t(M_g) .\n\nhttps://indico.tifr.res.in/indico/conferenceDis

DESCRIPTION:Abstract:\nKac and Peterson introduced a topology on real Kac-
Moody\ngroups that is very suitable for their study. Hartnick\, K. and Mar
s\nproved that this topology turns their twin building into a topological\
ntwin building in the sense of Kramer. More recently\, Freyn\, Hartnick\,\
nHorn\, K. constructed Kac-Moody symmetric spaces that share many\npropert
ies with Riemannian symmetric spaces but also allow for new\nfeatures such
as their twin building at infinity\, one into a future\ndirection\, the o
ther into a past direction.\n\nIt is my firm belief that this Kac-Moody sy
mmetric space is the\nnatural geometry for the further study of arithmetic
Kac-Moody groups\n-- the geometry of the twin building seems a little spa
rse\, although\nit still was sufficient for Farahmand Parsa\, Horn\, K. to
establish\nstrong rigidity and superrigidity properties of arithmetic Kac
-Moody\ngroups.\n\nhttps://indico.tifr.res.in/indico/conferenceDisplay.py?

DESCRIPTION:Abstract:\nTerence Tao posted on his blog a question of Apoorv
a Khare\,\nasking whether the free group on two generators has a length\nf
unction $l:F_2→R$ which is homogeneous\, i.e.\, such that\n$l(g^n)=n l(g
)$. A week later\, the problem was solved by an\nactive collaboration of s
everal mathematicians (with a little help\nfrom a computer) through Tao’
s blog. In fact a more general result\nwas obtained\, namely that any homo
geneous length function on a\ngroup $G$ factors through its abelianization
$G/[G\,G]$.\nI will discuss the proof of this result and also the process
of\ndiscovery.\n\nThe unusual feature of the use of computers here was\nt
hat a computer generated but human readable proof was read\,\nunderstood\,
generalized and abstracted by mathematicians to\nobtain the key lemma in
an interesting mathematical result -\nperhaps the first such instance.\n\n
I will also discuss conjugacy-invariant lengths on free groups and\nan ext
ension of the main result to quasi-homogeneous lengths.\n\nhttps://indico.

DESCRIPTION:Abstract: It is commonly expected that $e$\, $\\log 2$\, $\\sq
rt{2}$\, $\\pi$\, among other « classical » numbers\, behave\, in many r
espects\, like almost all real numbers. For instance\, they are expected t
o be normal to base 10\, that is\, one believes that their decimal expansi
on contains every finite block of digits from $\\{0\, \\ldots \, 9\\}$. We
are very far away from establishing such a strong assertion. However\, th
ere has been some small recent progress in that direction. After surveying
classical results and problems on normal numbers\, we will adopt a point
of view from combinatorics on words and show that the decimal expansions o
f $e$\, of any irrational algebraic number\, and of $\\log (1 + \\frac{1}{
a})$\, for a sufficiently large integer $a$\, cannot be `too simple'\, in
a suitable sense.\n\nhttps://indico.tifr.res.in/indico/conferenceDisplay.p

DESCRIPTION:Abstract:\n\nIn this talk\, I will present Abhyankar's Inertia
Conjecture\, some of its\ngeneralizations and evidence towards these prob
lems.\n\nIn 1957\, Abhyankar conjectured that the finite groups that occur
as the\nGalois groups of the \\'{e}tale connected Galois covers of the af
fine line\nover an algebraically closed field of prime characteristic $p$
are\nprecisely the quasi $p$-groups (groups generated by their Sylow\n$p$-
subgroups). This is now a Theorem due to Serre and Raynaud. In 2001\,\nAbh
yankar proposed a refined conjecture on the inertia groups that occur\nove
r $\\infty$ for such covers\, now known as the Inertia Conjecture. The\nco
njecture remains wide open at the moment. We will see the previously\nknow
n evidence and discuss the new ones together with the technique used.\nWe
will also see some generalizations of the conjecture and the evidence\ntow
ards them. The talk will be based on the articles `On the Inertia\nConject
ure for alternating group covers'\, J. Pure Appl. Agebra\, vol. 224\,\n9\,
2020. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jpaa.2020.106363. (with Manish Kumar)\nan
