Bisectors and foliations in complex hyperbolic space

Uniwersytet Łódzki

In the complex hyperbolic space \(\mathbb {C}\mathbb{H}^n\) there are no hypersurfaces (of real dimension \(2n-1\)) which are totally geodesic. The hypersurfaces imitating this condition as well as possible are bisectors i.e. equidistants from pair of points. Every bisector is uniquely described by their poles i.e. two distinct points on the ideal boundary. A spane (rep. complex spine) of the bisector is the geodesic (resp. complex geodesic) joining poles. In my talk I shall formulate a local condition for a family of bisector to form a foliation of \(\mathbb{ C}\mathbb{H}^n\) and observe these foliations on the ideal boundary which has a structure of Heisenberg group. Moreover, we shall give examples of cospinal foliations and compare the situation with totally geodesic foliations of real hyperbolic space.

Constant mean curvature surfaces in \(\mathbb{E}(\kappa,\tau)\)-spaces

ICMAT

In this 6-hour PhD minicourse, we will give an introduction to constant mean curvature surfaces in simply-connected Riemannian homogeneous three-manifolds with four-dimensional isometry group. These spaces are contained in a two-parameter family \(\mathbb{E}(\kappa,\tau)\), depending on two real parameters \(\kappa,\tau\in\mathbb{R}\), which includes the space forms \(\mathbb{R}^3\) and \(\mathbb{S}^3\), the product spaces \(\mathbb{H}^2\times\mathbb{R}\) and \(\mathbb{S}^2\times\mathbb{R}\), and the Lie groups \(\mathrm{Nil}_3\), \(\mathrm{SU}(2)\) and \(\mathrm{SL}_2(\mathbb{R})\) equipped with special left-invariant metrics.

Throughout the course, we will discuss some basic facts about the geometry of \(\mathbb{E}(\kappa,\tau)\)-spaces, as well as some of the most important results for constant mean curvature surfaces immersed in them. Among other topics, we will review the existence of harmonic maps and holomorphic quadratic differentials, the isometric correspondence and the conformal duality, the conjugate Plateau constructions, the Jenkins-Serrin problem, and the solution to the Bernstein problem for surfaces with critical mean curvature.

The Hopf fibration 4

Universitatea Alexandru Ioan Cuza

We recall some classical results on the Hopf fibration \(f:S^3 \rightarrow S^2\). We focus on the preimage of a curve gamma on \(S^2\) via the projection \(f\). It is known as the Hopf tube over gamma and we give some curvature properties. We point out, as application related to Physics, some developments on magnetic curves on the 3-dimensional sphere. We complete the lectures extending all these studies to the fibration \(M^3(c) \rightarrow S^2(r)\), where \(M^3(c)\) is an elliptic Sasakian space form.

On the existence of translators in slabs

Caracterización de superficies isoparamétricas en curvatura constante vía superficies mínimas

Instituto de Matemáticas, Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México

Las superficies isoparamétricas en un espacio de dimension tres y curvatura constante tienen curvaturas principales constantes. Veremos la siguiente caracterización: Sea $M$ una superficie tal que por cada punto pasan tres geodésicas de $M$ y para cada una de las cuales, la superficie reglada con reglas ortogonales a $M$ a lo largo de la geodésica es mínima. Entonces $M$ es isoparamétrica.

Geometric aspects of semilinear elliptic PDEs and minimal hypersurfaces on closed manifolds.

University of Chicago

In this talk I will discuss both local and global properties of the stationary Allen-Cahn equation in closed manifolds. This equation, arising from the theory of phase transitions, has a strong connection with the theory of minimal hypersurfaces. I will summarize recent results regarding the analogy between both theories, focusing on min-max constructions. In particular, new insights into both Almgren-Pitts and Marques-Neves existence theories of minimal hypersurfaces will be discussed.

Minimal boundary cones

Université Paris-Sacaly

The Plateau problem arises from physics, and in particular from soap bubbles and soap films. Solving the Plateau problem means to find a surface with minimal area among all surfaces with a given boundary. Part of the problem actually consists in giving a suitable sense to the notions of "surface", "area" and "boundary". Given \(0 < d < n\) we will consider a setting, due to Almgren, in which the considered objects are sets with locally finite d-dimensional Hausdorff measure, the functional we will try to minimize is the Hausdorff area \(H^d\), and the boundary condition is given in terms of a one-parameter family of deformations. Almgren minimizers turn out to have nice regularity properties, in particular an Almgren minimizer is a \(C^{1,\alpha}\) embedded submanifold of \(\mathbb{R}^n\) up to a negligible set, and the tangent cone to any point of such a minimizer is a minimal cone. Therefore in order to give a complete characterisation of these object we need to know how minimal cones look like. The complete list of minimal cones of \(\mathbb{R}^2\) and \(\mathbb{R}^3\) has been well known long time ago while in higher dimensions the list is far from being complete and we only know few examples. My talk will focus to a small variation of this setting which we call "sliding boundary" and to minimal cones that arise in this frame.

An introduction to the Cheeger problem III

Università di Modena

Abstract: the Cheeger problem consists in minimizing the ratio between perimeter and volume among subsets of a given set $\Omega$. The infimum of this ratio is the Cheeger constant of $\Omega$, while minimizers are called Cheeger sets. Quite surprisingly, this variational problem turns out to be closely linked to a number of other relevant problems (eigenvalue estimates, capillarity, image segmentation techniques, max-flow/min-cut duality, landslide models). After introducing some essential concepts and tools from the theory of BV functions and finite perimeter sets, we shall review some classical as well as recent results on this topic.
All lectures will be delivered at the Seminar Room in the 1st floor of the Mathematics building.

Classification of static manifolds

University of Warwick, U.K.

A static space-time can be described as a vacuum space-time satisfying the Einstein equations (with cosmological constant) where a global notion of time is well-defined and in which all spacial slices look equal. In more geometric terms, such important models in General Relativity can be described by a Riemannian three-manifold admitting a non-negative solution to a certain second order equation. Can we describe all such static manifolds? In this talk, I will discuss some results in that direction, specially in the case of positive scalar curvature.

Schrödinger's Smoke

T.U. Berlin

Fluid simulations in Computer Graphics struggle with the problem that on the one hand in most situations of interest the real flow is dominated by very thin vortex sheets and filaments, which also are responsible for much of the fine detail of the flow. On the other hand, feasible numerical grid resolutions are unable to resolve these thin structures and result in a substantial amount of numerical viscosity. Many rather artificial remedies have been proposed for this problem.

In this talk we propose to use the equations usually reserved for quantum fluids also for the simulation of ordinary fluids. We demonstrate that this can help to overcome some of the mentioned problems. Moreover, the resulting numerical algorithm is extermely simple and efficient.

A properly embedded holomorphic disc in the ball with finite area and dense boundary curve

Univerza v Ljubljani

I will describe the construction of a properly embedded holomorphic disc in the unit ball of \(\mathbb{C}^2\) having the following surprising combination of properties: - on the one hand, the disc has finite area, and hence is the zero set of a bounded holomorphic function on the ball; - on the other hand, its real analytic boundary curve is everywhere dense in the sphere.

On the geometry of the set of compact subsets of riemannian spaceforms

Universidad Autónoma de Yucatán, México DF

In this talk we present some interesting features of the geodesic structure of the space of compact subsets of \(\mathbb{R}^n\) and \(\mathbb{H}^n\) endowed with the Hausdorff metric. In particular, we show that such spaces are not spaces of curvature bounded from below. We further investigate connections between these spaces and the Hilbert cube.

Geometric Analysis

ICMS Edinburgh (Reino Unido)

» 

Geometric analysis represents one of the currently most active and exciting areas of mathematics. It lies at the intersection of differential geometry, analysis, partial differential equations and mathematical physics, and is having a profound impact on all of these fields, leading to the resolution of many conjectures as well as stimulating important new avenues of research. The workshop will focus on three of the most active subareas of the subject, namely geometric flows, variational methods and mathematical relativity. It will also cover the general topic of manifolds with controlled Ricci tensor, which has not only seen spectacular progress over the past few years, but which is currently accumulating many promising links with geometric flows and a wide array of applications. This workshop will bring together the leaders in the field, and make their interaction and ideas accessible to a wide audience, particularly of UK mathematicians. The UK has seen an impressive rise in geometric analysis over the past decade, and the training of PhD students and postdocs is beginning to accelerate. The workshop will provide first-hand access for these students and postdocs to the forefront of current research. This workshop is jointly funded by ICMS and the Singularities of Geometric Partial Differential Equations EPSRC programme grant.

There are a number of spaces available at the workshop for public applicants.

Seventh Iberoamerican Congress on Geometry January 22nd-26th, 2018. Valladolid, Spain

Valladolid (España)

» 
The wealth of mathematics to which Riemann surfaces and algebraic curves are central, as a tool is now stunning, in differential geometry, topology, algebraic geometry, singularities, mathematical physics, dynamics, hyperbolic geometry and other subjects constantly developing new techniques to work with curves, and applying them in ever changing and evolving directions. The Iberoamerican Congresses on Geometry (ICG’s) are unique in bringing people from these diverse mathematical communities together, and fostering an exchange of ideas among mathematicians in different fields, united by Riemann surfaces and related constructions.

The 7th congress will showcase the recent advances in a broad range of geometric subjects. The program consists of nine plenary talks, seven special sessions and a poster session. Plenary talks, about current issues and of historical interest, are by experts in such core areas traditionally represented at the ICG’s as Teichmüller theory, Riemann surfaces, abelian varieties, dynamics, and foliations, but also in more differential-geometric pursuits of minimal surfaces and study of min-max surfaces, and topics in probability, tropical geometry, and mathematical physics. Topics of the special sessions are algebraic surfaces, abelian varieties, hyperbolic geometry and Teichmüller theory, algebraic and complex geometry, topology of singularities, geometry and physics, and holomorphic and algebraic foliations. Only two special sessions will run in parallel, and each session consists of talks of 40 minutes.
