Olonomie riemanniana și Weyl speciale  IMAR room 307  
Abstract: Impreuna cu Brice Flamencourt si Andrei Moroianu, studiem varietatile riemanniene compacte, cu olonomie speciala (strict inclusa in SO(n)) si admitand o structura Weyl inchisa (neexacta) deasemenea cu olonomie speciala. Aceasta structura Weyl este de fapt conexiunea LeviCivita a unei metrici conform echivalente cu cea initiala, definita insa doar pe acoperirea universala (daca ambele conexiuni corespund la metrici conform echivalente, definite pe varietatea compacta, problema este clasica). Obtinem o caracterizare geometrica a cestor varietati in functie de tipurile de olonomie ce pot aparea.

Singular limits of hyperbolic PDE and Effective Field Theories  IMAR room 307  
Abstract: Often in a physical problem there are some degrees of freedom that we treat as unobservable because the energy required to excite them is much greater than the energy scale of the problem.These unobservable degrees of freedom can still affect the physics that we do observe at subleading order. A tool that is often used by physicists to study this is the machinery of effective field theory (EFT). An EFT is a formal expansion in some small parameter, raising important questions about how one should `solve’ such an expansion and whether (and in what sense) the solutions approximate the underlying problem. In this talk I will discuss a paper with Harvey Reall in which we studied an EFT for a model PDE and explained how to address the questions that can arise.

Nonlocal coefficients in the heat asymptotics for real powers of Laplacians  IMAR room 307  
Abstract:
We prove that some of the heat coefficients in the smalltime asymptotic expansion of e^{t \Delta^r} are nonlocal, where r \in (0,1), and \Delta is a Laplacetype operator over a compact Riemannian manifold. Furthermore, for r=1/2 we give a conceptual interpretation of the heat kernel of \Delta^r on a certain heat space M_{heat}. More precisely, $M_{heat}$ is obtained by the standard blowup of the diagonal at time {t=0} inside M \times M \times [0, \infty).

Voi schița apoi demonstrația teoremei echivariante de Rham, care permite calculul coomologiei echivariante pentru acțiuni de grupuri Lie compacte folosind modelul Weil sau, echivalent, modelul Cartan. Apoi voi prezenta în contextul coomologiei echivariante formula DuistermaatHeckman, care permite calculul integralelor formelor echivariant închise folosind doar mulțimea punctelor fixe. Voi prezenta și o aplicație recentă a formulei DuistermaatHeckman: demonstrația algebricității volumului normalizat al unei varietății Sasaki în raport cu o metrică CalabiYau pe conul său Kähler.

Simple Closed Quasigeodesics on Tetrahedra  Zoom  
Abstract: Pogorelov proved in 1949 that every convex polyhedron has at least three simple closed quasigeodesics. Whereas a geodesic has exactly π surface angle to either side at each point, a quasigeodesic has at most π surface angle to either side at each point. Pogorelov's existence proof did not suggest a way to identify the three quasigeodesics, and it is only recently that a finite algorithm has been proposed. Here we identify three simple closed quasigeodesics on any tetrahedron: at least one through 1 vertex, at least one through 2 vertices, and at least one through 3 vertices. The only exception is that isosceles tetrahedra have simple closed geodesics but do not have a 1vertex quasigeodesic. We also identify an infinite class of tetrahedra that each have at least 34 simple closed quasigeodesics. This is recent joint work with Joseph O'Rourke (Smith College, USA).

Conformal vector fields on lcK manifolds  IMAR room 307  
Abstract: It is well known that on compact Kähler manifolds every conformal vector field is Killing (Lichnerowicz) and every Killing vector field is holomorphic. In this talk I will extend these results to the locally conformally Kähler setting. More precisely, I will show that any conformal vector field $\xi$ on a compact lcK manifold is Killing with respect to the Gauduchon metric, and if the Kähler cover of the manifold is neither flat, nor hyperkähler, then $\xi$ is holomorphic. This is joint work with Mihaela Pilca.

Constant scalar curvature and Kähler manifolds with nef canonical bundle  Zoom  
Abstract: Given a compact Kähler manifold it is a classical question whether it admits a Kähler metric of constant scalar curvature (cscK metric for short). In this talk we prove that there always exist cscK metrics on compact Kähler manifolds with nef canonical bundle, thus on all smooth minimal models, and also on the blowup of any such manifold. This confirms an expectation of JianShiSong and extends the seminal results of Aubin and Yau, giving a large class of new examples of cscK manifolds. As a byproduct we show that the connected component of the automorphism group of any compact Kähler manifold with nef canonical bundle is either trivial or a complex torus. The tools used are from the variational approach in Kähler geometry, and some related results on stability thresholds and Donaldson's Jequation are discussed along the way.

Holomorphic foliations and tranverse Cartan geometry  Zoom  
Abstract:This talk will present the foliated aspect of Cartan's geometries (connections) which are geometrical structures infinitesimally modeled on homogeneous spaces. After an introduction of the classical framework providing motivations, we will show classification results for holomorphic foliations with transversal Cartan geometries on rationally connected varieties and on CalabiYau manifolds. This is based on a joint work with Indranil Biswas (TIFR, Mumbai).

Collapsed ancient solutions of the Ricci flow on compact homogeneous spaces  Zoom  
Abstract:The Ricci flow (RF) is a geometric PDE that evolves a Riemannian metric in the direction of its Ricci tensor. Solutions that are defined for any negative time are called ancient, and they arise as blowup limits near singularities. In this talk, we review some classical facts concerning the RF on compact homogeneous spaces and we present a general existence theorem for collapsed ancient solutions. Furthermore, we show that all our solutions converge in the GromovHausdorff topology, under a suitable rescaling, to an Einstein metric on the base of a torus fibration. As a direct consequence of this result, we illustrate a series of examples. This is joint work with S. Sbiti.

Finiteness of hyperbolic groups with bounded entropy  Zoom  
Abstract:I will present a new finiteness theorem: there are only finitely many torsionless groups G acting discretely by isometries on some deltahyperbolic space X with entropy Ent(X) < E and diameter of the quotient space G\X less than D. I will explain the genesis of the result, which dates back to the work of Heintze, Cheeger and Gromov, declining it in different forms: for 3manifolds, for general nonpositively curved nmanifolds, for Gromov hyperbolic spaces and groups. The main tool behind it is a new, "curvaturefree" volume comparison inequality ala BishopGromov, which only needs an upper bound of entropy and diameter. (This is a joint work with G. Besson, G. Courtois and S. Gallot, see arXiv:2109.13025)

Cauchy spinors on 3manifolds  Zoom  
Abstract:The socalled Cauchy spinors arise naturally when one considers the restriction of a parallel spinor on a spinmanifold $Z$ to an oriented hypersurface $M$ of $Z$. The covariant derivative of such a restriction in the direction of $X \in TM$ is given by the Clifford multiplication by $A(X)/2$ where $A$ is the second fundamental form of the hypersurface. Then, we can consider more generally the spinors satisfying this last condition on a manifold $M$, with $A$ being an arbitrary symmetric endomorphism field. This is what we call Cauchy spinors. In dimension three, the study of Cauchy spinors on simply connected manifolds is equivalent to the flatness of a connection, which can be rewritten as an equation on the endomorphism field $A$. Since this is a nonlinear differential equation, it is still hard to fully understand the structure of this spinors space, even in the simple case of the round sphere $\SS^3$. However, we can give some structure results on manifolds with positive curvature. Moreover, we can use the Lie group structure of $\SS^3$ in order to make explicit computations in this case.

Introducere in geometria spinoriala in dimensiuni 3 si 4  Zoom  
Abstract:Expunerea va fi o introducere in lumea spinorilor. Voi construi grupurile Spin(3) si Spin(4) si reprezentarile lor spinoriale. Orice 3varietate Riemaniana orientata M este inzestrata cu structuri Spin. Daca M este o hipersuprafata intro 4varietate Riemaniana spin X, putem restrange spinori de la X la M. Cand X admite spinori paraleli nenuli, curbura sa Ricci se anuleaza iar metrica este (anti)autoduala; in plus, metrica lui M si a doua sa forma fundamentala satisfac doua ecuatii de constragere obtinute prin contractarea ecuatiilor Gauss si Codazzi, iar restrictia spinorului paralel de pe X la M este un asanumit spinor Cauchy. Vom studia problema Cauchy de extindere a unui spinor Cauchy de pe M la un spinor paralel pe X.

Vaisman theorem for locally conformally Kähler spaces  Zoom  
Abstract:Vaisman's theorem states that any locally conformally Kähler metric on a compact complex manifold which admits a Kähler metric is, in fact, globally conformally Kähler. We extend this theorem to compact (singular) complex spaces which are locally irreducible. We also present an example which shows that the additional assumption of local irreducibility cannot be dropped.

Metric connections with parallel skewsymmetric torsion  Sala 307  
Abstract: In this talk I will present some results, obtained in collaboration with Uwe Semmelmann and Richard Cleyton, about the structure of Riemannian manifolds carying a metric connection with parallel skewsymmetric (nonvanishing) torsion. These objects appear naturally in different geometric contexts, e.g. on naturally reductive homogeneous spaces, on Sasakian and 3Sasakian manifolds, or on nearly Kähler and nearly parallel G_2 manifolds. Cleyton and Swann have classified them in the case of irreducible holonomy. In the reducible case, I will show that the manifold is the total space of a Riemannian submersion with totally geodesic homogeneous fibres over a Riemannian manifold which carries a metric connection with parallel skewsymmetric (possibly vanishing) torsion, and a principal bundle with parallel curvature. This result opens the way towards a possible classification of geometries with parallel skewsymmetric torsion.
