Title: Complex flag manifolds and Lagrangian submanifolds

Abstract: A complex flag manifold is an orbit of the adjoint representation of a compact semi-simple Lie group. These orbits play an important role in several contexts. In this talk we consider some relations between Complex flag manifolds and Lagrangian submanifolds in the following viewpoints: (i) Complex flag manifold as a submanifold in the Euclidean space. (ii) Complex flag manifold as a homogeneous Kahler manifold.

Title: Coronae and the coarse Baum-Connes conjecture

Abstract: TBA

 

Takashi Shioya (Tohoku Univ.)

TitleFConcentration, convergence, and dissipation of spaces 

AbstractF Gromov introduced a new topology on the set of isomorphism classes of metric measure spaces, based on the idea of concentration of measure phenomenon due to Levy and Milman.  This is a generalization of measured Gromov-Hausdorff topology.  Different from the measured Gromov-Hausdorff topology, Gromovfs topology is suitable to study a non-GH-precompact family of spaces.  In this talk, I show the study of convergence of spaces with unbounded dimension.

 

Kotaro Kawai (University of Tokyo)

Title: Cohomogeneity one coassociative submanifolds

Abstract; Coassociative submanifolds are calibrated 4-submanifolds in G2-manifolds. 

We construct explicit examples in the bundle of anti-self-dual 2-forms over the 4-sphere.

Classifying the Lie groups which have 3 or 4 dimensional orbits, 

we show that only homogeneous coassociative submanifold is 

the zero-section up to the automorphism 

and construct many cohomogeneity one examples explicitly. 

 

Jason D. Lotay (University College London)

Title: Hyperkaehler 4-manifolds with boundary 

Abstract: Hyperkaehler geometry, which arises in the study of special holonomy and Ricci-flat metrics, is also important for theoretical physics and moduli space problems in gauge theory.  In dimension 4, hyperkaehler geometry takes on a special character, and a natural question arises: given a compact 3-dimensional manifold N which can be a hypersurface in a hyperkaehler 4-manifold, when can it actually be "filled in" to a compact hyperkaehler 4-manifold with N as its boundary?  In particular, starting from a compact hyperkaehler 4-manifold with boundary, which deformations of the boundary structure can be extended to a hyperkaehler deformation of the interior?  I will discuss recent progress on this problem, which is joint work with Joel Fine and Michael Singer.

 

Tomasso Pacini (Scuola Normale Superiore)

Title: "Coupled geometric flows: which & why."

Abstract: I will present an overview of recent work with J. Lotay (UCL) concerning coupled flows in various contexts: Kahler, almost Kahler and G2 geometry.
