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.

TitleFConcentration, convergence, and dissipation of spaces
AbstractF 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, Gromovfs 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.

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.

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.

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.
