    Lecture 1 ——Linear stability of pipe Poiseuille flow at high Reynolds number regime

    Speaker: Zhifei Zhang, School of Mathematical Sciences, Peking University

    Time: 16:00-17:00 Beijing time (11:00-12:00 Moscow time)

    Abstract: The linear stability of pipe Poiseuille flow is a long standing problem since Reynolds experiment in 1883. Joint with Qi Chen and Dongyi Wei, we solve this problem at high Reynolds regime. We first introduce a new formulation for the linearized 3-D Navier-Stokes equations around this flow. Then we establish the resolvent estimates of this new system under favorable artificial boundary conditions. Finally, we solve the original system by constructing a boundary layer corrector.

    Bio: Zhifei Zhang received his PhD from Zhejiang university in 2003. Then he spent 2 years in Mathematics Institute of AMSS as a Postdoc. He joined Peking university in 2005. His research interest is in the mathematical problems in the fluid mechanics such as the well-posedness of the Navier-Stokes equations, free boundary problem, hydrodynamic stability.


    Lecture 2 —— Partial spectral flow and the Aharonov–Bohm effect in graphene.

    Speaker: Vladimir E. Nazaikinskii Ishlinsky Institute for Problems in Mechanics RAS

    Time: 17:00-18:00 Beijing time (12:00-13:00 Moscow time)

    Abstract: We study the Aharonov–Bohm effect in an open-ended tube made of a graphene sheet whose dimensions are much larger than the interatomic distance in graphene. An external magnetic field vanishes on and in the vicinity of the graphene sheet, and its flux through the tube is adiabatically switched on. It is shown that, in the process, the energy levels of the tight-binding Hamiltonian of π-electrons unavoidably cross the Fermi level, which results in the creation of electron–hole pairs. The number of pairs is proven to be equal to the number of magnetic flux quanta of the external field. The proof is based on the new notion of partial spectral flow, which generalizes the ordinary spectral flow introduced by Atiyah, Patodi, and Singer and  already having well-known applications (such as the Kopnin forces in superconductors and superfluids) in condensed matter physics.

    Bio: Vladimir Nazaikinskii received PhD degree from Moscow Institute of Electronic Engineering in 1981 and DSc degree from Steklov Mathematical Institute of RAS in 2014 and was elected Corresponding Member of RAS in 2016.

    Lecture 1 —— Polynomial structures in higher genus enumerative geometry
    Time: 16:00-17:00 Beijing time (11:00-12:00 Moscow time)
    Speaker: Shuai Guo, School of Mathematical Sciences, Peking University).
    Abstract: It is important to calculate the enumerative invariants from various moduli theories in mirror symmetry. The polynomial structure is often appeared in those quantum theories, including the Calabi-Yau type and the Fano type theories. Such conjectural structure is also called the finite generation conjecture in the literature. For each genus, it is conjectured that the computation of infinite many enumerative invariants can be converted to a finite computation problem. The original motivation of studying such structures will also be mentioned. This talk is based on the joint work with Janda-Ruan, Chang-Li-Li, Bousseau-Fan-Wu and Zhang respectively.
    Bio: Shuai Guo got Ph. D in Tsinghua University, 2011 and now is an associate professor in SMS of Peking University.
    Research interests: Higher genus enumerative geometry and mirror symmetry.
    Honors: 2019 "QiuShi" Outstanding Youth Award (2019), Selected as the national youth talent support program of China (2019).
    Lecture 2 ——Smooth compactifications of differential graded categories
    Time: 17:00-18:00 Beijing time (12:00-13:00 Moscow time)
    Speaker: Prof. Alexander Efimov, Steklov Mathematical Institute of Russian Academy of Sciences.
    Abstract: We will give an overview of results on smooth categorical compactifications, the questions of theire existence and their construction. The notion of a smooth categorical compactification is closely related with the notion of homotopy finiteness of DG categories.
    First, we will explain the result on the existence of smooth compactifications of derived categories of coherent sheaves on separated schemes of finite type over a field of characteristic zero. Namely, such a derived category can be represented as a quotient of the derived category of a smooth projective variety, by a triangulated subcategory generated by a single object. Then we will give an example of a homotopically finite DG category which does not have a smooth compactification: a counterexample to one of the Kontsevich's conjectures on the generalized Hodge to de Rham degeneration.
    Finally, we will formulate a K-theoretic criterion for existence of a smooth categorical compactification, using DG categorical analogue of Wall's finiteness obstruction from topology.
    Research interests: algebraic geometry, mirror symmetry, non-commutative geometry.
    Honors: European Mathematical Society Prize (2020), Russian Academy of Sciences Medal with the Prize for Young Scientists (2017), Moscow Mathematical Society award (2016).

    Lecture 1 —— On homology of Torelli groups
    Time: 16:00-17:00 Beijing time (11:00-12:00 Moscow time)
    Speaker: Prof. Alexander Gaifullin, Steklov Mathematical Institute & Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology, Russia.
    Abstract: The mapping class groups of oriented surfaces are important examples of groups whose properties are closely related to geometry and topology of moduli spaces, topology of 3-manifolds, automorphisms of free groups. The mapping class group of a closed oriented surface contains two important subgroups, the Torelli group, which consists of all mapping classes that act trivially on the homology of the surface, and the Johnson kernel, which is the subgroup generated by all Dehn twists about separating curves. The talk will be devoted to results on homology of these two subgroups. Namely, we will show that the k-dimensional homology group of the genus g Torelli group is not finitely generated, provided that k is in range from 2g-3 and 3g-5 (the case 3g-5 was previously known by a result of Bestvina, Bux, and Margalit), and the (2g-3)-dimensional homology group the genus g Johnson kernel is also not finitely generated. The proof is based on a detailed study of the spectral sequences associated with the actions of these groups on the complex of cycles constructed by Bestvina, Bux, and Margalit.
    Bio: Prof. Alexander Gaifullin is the Correspondent member of the Russian Academy of Sciences (since 2016).

He is the invited speaker at the 5th European Congress of Mathematics (Krakow, 2012); plenary speaker at the 6th European Congress of Mathematics (Berlin, 2016)
    Lecture 2 ——Stable homotopy groups of spheres
    Time: 17:00-18:00 Beijing time (12:00-13:00 Moscow time)
    Speaker: Prof. Guozhen Wang,  Shanghai Center for Mathematical Sciences, Fudan University.
    Abstract: We will discuss the current state of knowledge of stable homotopy groups of spheres. We describe a computational method using motivic homotopy theory, viewed as a deformation of classical homotopy theory. This yields a streamlined computation of the first 61 stable homotopy groups and gives information about the stable homotopy groups in dimensions 62 through 90. As an application, we determine the groups of homotopy spheres that classify smooth structures on spheres through dimension 90, except for dimension 4. The method relies more heavily on machine computations than previous methods and is therefore less prone to error. The main mathematical tool is the Adams spectral sequence. 
    Bio: Guozhen Wang received PhD degree from MIT in 2015. From 2016, he is working at Shanghai Center for Mathematical Sciences, Fudan University. His research field is algebraic topology, including stable and unstable homotopy groups, applications of computers in homotopy theory, motivic homotopy theory and topological cyclic homology.

    Lecture 1 —— Right-angled polytopes, hyperbolic manifolds and torus actions

    Speaker:Taras Panov, Moscow State University, Russia

    Time: 16:00-17:00 Beijing time (11:00-12:00 Moscow time)

    Abstract: A combinatorial 3-dimensional polytope P can be realized in Lobachevsky 3-space with right dihedral angles if and only if it is simple, flag and does not have 4-belts of facets. This criterion was proved in the works of A.Pogorelov and E.Andreev of the 1960s. We refer to combinatorial 3 polytopes admitting a right-angled realisation in Lobachevsky 3-space as Pogorelov polytopes. The Pogorelov class contains all fullerenes, i.e. simple 3-polytopes with only 5-gonal and 6-gonal facets. There are two families of smooth manifolds associated with Pogorelov polytopes. The first family consists of 3-dimensional small covers (in the sense of M.Davis and T.Januszkiewicz) of Pogorelov polytopes P, also known as hyperbolic3-manifolds of Loebell type. These are aspherical 3-manifolds whose fundamental groups are certain extensions of abelian 2-groups by hyperbolic right-angled reflection groups in the facets of P. The second family consists of 6-dimensional quasi toric manifolds over Pogorelov polytopes. These are simply connected 6-manifolds with a 3-dimensional torus action and orbit space P. Our main result is that both families are cohomologically rigid, i.e. two manifolds M and M' from either family are diffeomorphic if and only if their cohomology rings are isomorphic. We also prove that a cohomology ring isomorphism implies an equivalence of characteristic pairs; in particular, the corresponding polytopes P and P' are combinatorially equivalent. This leads to a positive solution of a problem of A.Vesnin (1991) on hyperbolic Loebell manifolds, and implies their full classification. Our results are intertwined with classical subjects of geometry and topology such as combinatorics of 3-polytopes, the Four Colour Theorem, aspherical manifolds, a diffeomorphism classification of 6-manifolds and invariance of Pontryagin classes. The proofs use techniques of toric topology.
    This is a joint work with V. Buchstaber, N. Erokhovets, M. Masuda and S.Park.
     
    Bio: Higher geometry and topology chair, Professor. Research interests: Algebraic and differential topology, cobordism theories, toric topology. Honors: I. I. Shuvalov Prize, 1st degree, Moscow State University (2013), Moscow Mathematical Society award (2004).

    Lecture 2 —— Finite covers of 3-manifolds

    Speaker:Yi Liu, Beijing International Center for Mathematical Research.

    Time: 17:00-18:00 Beijing time (12:00-13:00 Moscow time)

    Abstract: In this talk, I will discuss some developments in 3-manifold topology of this century regarding finite covering spaces. These developments led to the resolution of Thurston’s virtual Haken conjecture and other related conjectures around 2012. Since then, people have been seeking for new applications of those techniques and their combination with other branches of mathematics.

    Lecture 2 —Аn application of algebraic topology and graph theory in microeconomics

    Speaker:Lev Lokutsievskiy (Steklov Mathematical Institute of RAS)

    Time:17:00-18:00 Beijing time (12:00-13:00 Moscow time)
    Abstract:One of the important questions in mechanism design is the implementability of allocation rules. An allocation rule is called implementable if for any agent, benefit from revealing its true type is better than benefit from lying. I’ll show some illustrative examples.
    Obviously, some allocation rules are not implementable. Rochet’s theorem states that an allocation rule is implementable iff it is cyclically monotone. During the talk, I’ll present a new convenient topological condition that guarantees that cyclic monotonicity is equivalent to ordinary monotonicity. The last one is easy to check (in contrary to cyclic one). Graph theory and algebraic topology appear to be very useful here.

    Bio: Lokutsievskiy L.V. is a specialist in geometric optimal control theory. He proved his habilitation thesis in 2015. Starting from 2016 he works at Steklov Mathematical Institute as a leading researcher.

    Lecture 2 — Additive divisor problem and Applications

    Speaker: Dimitry Frolenkov, Steklov Mathematical Institute (Moscow) 

    Time: 19:15-20:15 Beijing time (14:15-15:15 Moscow time)

    Abstract: Additive Divisor Problem (ADP) is concerned with finding an asymptotic formula for the sum $\sum_{n<X}d(n)d(n+a)$, where $d(n)=\sum_{d|n}1$ is the divisor function. Surprisingly, the ADP arises naturally in quite different problems of number theory. For example, it is related to the investigation of the 4th moment of the Riemann zeta-function, the second moment of automorphic $L$-functions and the mean values of the length of continued fractions. In the talk, I will describe the ADP and its applications.

    Bio: Dmitry Frolenkov received his PhD degree from Steklov Mathematical Institute in 2013. Starting from 2014 he works at Steklov Mathematical Institute  as a senior researcher.  Besides he got the RAS award for young scientists of Russia.

    Lecture 1 -  Restriction of unitary representations of Spin(N,1) to parabolic subgroups

    Speaker: Prof. Yu Jun, Beijing International Center for Mathematical Research

    Time:17:30-18:30 Beijing time (12:30-13:30 Moscow time)

    Lecture 2: Characterizing homogeneous rational projective varieties with Picard number 1 by their varieties of minimal rational tangents.

    Speaker: Prof. Dmitry Timashev, Moscow State University

    Time:18:30-19:30 Beijing time (13:30-14:30 Moscow Time)

    Abstract: It is well known that rational algebraic curves play a key role in the geometry of complex projective varieties, especially of Fano manifolds. In particular, on Fano manifolds of Picard number (= the 2nd Betti number) one, which are sometimes called "unipolar", one may consider rational curves of minimal degree passing through general points. Tangent directions of minimal rational curves through a general point $x$ in a unipolar Fano manifold $X$ form a projective subvariety $\mathcal{C}_{x,X}$ in the projectivized tangent space $\mathbb{P}(T_xX)$, called the variety of minimal rational tangents (VMRT).

    In 90-s J.-M. Hwang and N. Mok developed a philosophy declaring that the geometry of a unipolar Fano manifold is governed by the geometry of its VMRT at a general point, as an embedded projective variety. In support of this thesis, they proposed a program of characterizing unipolar flag manifolds in the class of all unipolar Fano manifolds by their VMRT. In the following decades a number of partial results were obtained by Mok, Hwang, and their collaborators.

    Recently the program was successfully completed (J.-M. Hwang, Q. Li, and the speaker). The main result states that a unipolar Fano manifold $X$ whose VMRT at a general point is isomorphic to the one of a unipolar flag manifold $Y$ is itself isomorphic to $Y$. Interestingly, the proof of the main result involves a bunch of ideas and techniques from "pure" algebraic geometry, differential geometry, structure and representation theory of simple Lie groups and algebras, and theory of spherical varieties (which extends the theory of toric varieties).


    Bio: Dmitry Timashev recieved PhD degree from Moscow State University in 1997. From 1997, he is working at the Department of Higher Algebra in the Faculty of Mathematics and Mechanics, Moscow State University, currently at the position of associate professor.

    Abstract: We consider the Riemann problem for a system of conservation laws. For non-strictly hyperbolic in the sense of Petrovskii step-like systems, a new method of constructing a solution is described. The proposed method allows us to construct a unique solution to the Riemann problem, which for each $t$ is a picewise smooth function of $x$ with discontinuities of the first kind. Moreover, for the scalar conservation law, the solution constructed by the proposed method coincides with the known admissible solution.

    Time: 2020-06-26 20:00-21:00 Beijing time (15:00-16:00 Moscow time)
    Abstract:
    We develop a general method for constructing knotted vortex/magnetic tubes with the finite thickness, arbitrary shape, and tunable twist. The central axis of the knotted tubes is determined by a given smooth and non-degenerated parametric equation. The helicity of the knotted tubes can be explicitly decomposed into the writhe, localized torsion, and intrinsic twist. We construct several knotted vortex/magnetic tubes with various geometry and topology, and investigate the effect of twist on their evolution in hydrodynamic or magnetohydrodynamic flows using direct numerical simulation. In addition, we illustrate a knot cascade of magnetic field lines through the stepwise reconnection of a pair of orthogonal helical flux tubes with opposite chirality.

    Lecture 1 - Slopes of modular forms and ghost conjecture of Bergdall and Pollack


    Speaker:Prof. Xiao Liang (Beijing International Center for Math. Research )

    Time: 2020-06-12 20:00-21:00 Beijing time (15:00-16:00 Moscow time)

    Abstract: In classical theory, slopes of modular forms are p-adic valuations of the eigenvalues of the Up-operator.  On the Galois side, they correspond to the p-adic valuations of eigenvalues of the crystalline Frobenius on the Kisin's crystabelian deformations space. I will report on a joint work in progress in which we seems to have proved a version of the ghost conjecture of Bergdall and Pollack. This has many consequences in the classical theory, such as some cases of Gouvea-Mazur conjecture, and some hope towards understanding irreducible components of eigencurves. On the Galois side, our theorem can be used to prove certain integrality statement on slopes of crystalline Frobenius on Kisin's deformation space, as conjectured by Breuil-Buzzard-Emerton.  This is a joint work with Ruochuan Liu, Nha Truong, and Bin Zhao.



    Lecture 2 - Higher-dimensional Contou-Carrere symbols


    Speaker:Prof. RAS Denis V. Osipov (Steklov Mathematical Institute of Russian Academy of Sciences)

    Time: 2020-06-12 21:00-22:00 Beijing time (16:00-17:00 Moscow time)

    Abstract: The classical Contou-Carrere symbol is the deformation of the tame symbol, so that residues and higher Witt symbols naturally appear from the Contou-Carrere symbol. This symbol was introduced by C. Contou-Carrere itself and by P. Deligne. It satisfies the reciprocity laws. In my talk I will survey on the higher-dimensional generalization of the Contou-Carrere symbol. The n-dimensional Contou-Carrere symbol naturally appears from the deformation of a full flag of subvarieties on an n-dimensional algebraic variety and it is also related with the Milnor K-theory of iterated Laurent series over a ring. The talk is based on joint papers with Xinwen Zhu (when n=2) and with Sergey Gorchinskiy (when n>2).

    Speaker: Prof. Huijun Fan (Peking University)
    Time:2020-05-29 21:00-22:00 Beijing time (16:00-17:00 Moscow time)
    Abstract: Mirror symmetry phenomenon relates many mathematical branches in a mysterious way. For example, it is conjectured that the quantum geometry of a Calabi-Yau hypersurface is equivalent to the quantum singularity theory of the corresponding defining function. When we consider the complex structure deformation of the two sides, we get the B model mirror conjecture, where the exciting structures of deformation moduli space, Gauss Manin connection, period mapping and etc.will appear. In this lecture, I will report another way to study the deformation theory of singularity via Schroedinger equation. By study the spectral theory of Schroedinger equation, we can build the variation of Hodge theory, Gauss-Manin connection by wave function, Frobenius manifold for some cases and even BCOV type torsion invariants for singularity.

    Lecture 2 - Topology of integrable systems on 4-manifolds


    SpeakerElena Kudryavtseva (Moscow State University)

    Time:2020-05-15 21:00-22:00 Beijing time (16:00-17:00 Moscow time)

    Abstract: We will give a survey on the topology of integrable Hamiltonian systems on 4-manifolds. Open questions and problems will be also discussed. Recall that, from a topological point of view, an integrable Hamiltonian system can be treated as a singular Lagrangian fibration on a smooth symplectic 2n-manifold whose generic fibres are n-dimensional tori. By a singularity, we mean either a singular point or a singular fibre of the fibration. The topological structure of such singularities is very important for understanding the dynamics of integrable systems both globally and locally. Our goal is to describe topological invariants of such singularities and obtain their classification up to fibrewise homeomorphism (for time being we forget about symplectic structure). The next step is to combine these singularities together to study the global structure of the fibration. For many integrable systems, this structure is completely determined by topological properties of singularities.
