Title: Symplectic deformations and the Type IIA flow

Time: Monday,10:30-11:30am, August 15, 2022

Venue: Online Tencent ID: 989-836-015; Offline: Lecture Hall, Jinchun Yuan West Building (近春园西楼三楼报告厅)

Abstract: The equations of flux compactification of Type IIA superstrings were written down by Tomasiello and Tseng-Yau. To study these equations, we introduce a natural geometric flow known as the Type IIA flow on symplectic Calabi-Yau 6-manifolds. We prove the wellposedness of this flow and establish the basic estimates. We show that the Type IIA flow can be applied to find optimal almost complex structures on certain symplectic manifolds. We prove the dynamical stability of the Type IIA flow, which leads to a proof of stability of Kahler property for Calabi-Yau 3-folds under symplectic deformations. This is based on joint work with Phong, Picard and Zhang.

Bio: Teng Fei obtained his Ph.D. from MIT in 2016, under the supervision of Prof. Shing -Tung Yau and Prof. Victor Guillemin. He is currently an assistant professor in the Department of Math & CS of Rutgers University - Newark.

Title:  Analytic characterization of convexity and pseudoconvexity of bounded domains.

Abstract: We show that a bounded domain with smooth boundary is convex (or pseudoconvex) if and only if the first order d-equation (or $\bar{\partial}$-equation) on it is solvable with certain $L^2$-estimate. This is a joint work with Xujun Zhang.

Title: Lelong Numbers of $m$-Subharmonic Functions Along Submanifolds

Abstract: We study the possible singularities of an $m$-subharmonic function $\varphi$ along a complex submanifold $V$ of a compact K\"ahler manifold, finding a maximal rate of growth for $\varphi$ which depends only on $m$ and $k$, the codimension of $V$. When $k < m$, we show that $\varphi$ has at worst log poles along $V$, and that the strength of these poles is moveover constant along $V$. This can be thought of as an analogue of Siu's theorem. This is joint work with Jianchun Chu.

Title: On a dichotomy of the curvature decay of steady Ricci soliton    
Abstract:     Ricci soliton arises naturally in the singularity analysis of the Ricci flow. Steady Ricci soliton is closely related to the Type II limit solution to the Ricci flow. There are two generic curvature decays for complete noncompact steady gradient Ricci soliton, namely linear and exponential decays. It is unclear if these are the only two possible decays. We show that this dichotomy holds for four dimensional complete noncompact non Ricci flat steady gradient Ricci soliton with at least linear curvature decay and proper potential function. A similar dichotomy is also shown in higher dimensions under the additional assumption that the Ricci curvature is nonnegative near infinity. As an application, we prove some classification results on steady soliton with fast curvature decay and obtain a dichotomy on the asymptotic geometry at spatial infinity. This talk is based on a joint work with Bo Zhu.

Equivariant spectral invariants under compact Lie group action

Abstract:Given a $G$-invariant elliptic pseudodifferential operator on a compact Riemannian $G$-manifold $M$, we study its equivariant spectral invariants. I will explain the role of symplectic geometry in studying the $G$-equivariant spectrum. In particular, I will show how to apply symplectic techniques to study equivariant inverse spectral problems for $G$-invariant Schrodinger operators, the main tool being a generalized Legendre transform in the abelian case, and a generalized Legendre relation in the nonabelian case. This is based on joint works with V. Guillemin (MIT)

Title: Brief Introduction to Genera and Applications

Abstract: The cobordism invariants, genera, play fundamental roles in manifold topology. Some specific genera, like A-hat genus, L-genus, Witten genus and elliptic genus are the topological pillars of the Atiyah-Singer index theory, spin geometry and string geometry. In this minicourse, we will give a brief introduction to genera starting from very basic knowledge and introduce some applications of genera in physics in particular anomaly cancellation problem, and in geometry concerning group actions and curvatures.

Abstract: Constant Mean Curvature (CMC) surfaces constitute a classical subject in Differential Geometry and are mathematical models in many disciplines of science. In this talk, I will present some results on the min-max construction of closed CMC surfaces. The talk includes joint works with Da Rong Cheng and Jonathan Zhu.

Title: Minimal graphs and related flows in warped product manifolds.

Abstract: In this talk we report our series of results on minimal graphs and related problems in warped product (WP) manifolds. Our motivation is to view WP manifolds as canonical manifolds in the certain sense. Then we introduce our results on minimal graphs, mean curvature flows, inverse mean curvature flows and two types of area minimizing problems in some WP manifolds. This includes of some recent works joint with Gao, Qiang.

Title: Einstein-Bogomol’nyi equation and Gravitating Vortex equations on Riemann surfaces、

Abstract: The Einstein’s Fields Equation coupled with an Abelian gauge field and a Higgs field possesses a special type of solution, mathematically known as Einstein-Bogomol’nyi equation and physically known as Cosmic Strings. In this talk, I will present some existence theorems for solutions of such equation and also its close companion Gravitating Vortex equations, introduced from a moment map picture. This is based on the joint work with Garcia-Fernandez and Pingali.
