Affiliation: Bhaskaracharya Pratishthana, PuneTitle: Separated and proper morphisms of schemes

Abstract: The lecture will begin with closed and universally closed morphisms of schemes. We will prove, following B Poonen, that any scheme that is universally closed over Spec k (where k is any field) is quasi-compact. This will be followed by some basics of quasi-compact morphisms, preparing the way to study separated and proper morphisms via specialization of points. The lecture will be easily accessible to students that have looked at section 4 of Chapter 2 of Hartshorne's “Algebraic Geometry”

Title: Bohr's theorem for the polydisc and the symmetrized polydisc

Abstract: In this talk, we will discuss Bohr's theorem for the family of holomorphic functions in the polydisc and symmetrized polydisc. We obtain several new estimates of the multidimensional Bohr radius for polydisc. Moreover, we will also study Bohr's zone for the symmetrized polydisc. In addition, we will answer certain open questions related to the exact values of multidimensional Bohr radius by using the concept of arithmetic Bohr radius for vector-valued holomorphic functions defined in complete Reinhardt domains in \mathbb{C}^n. Our discussion will include several interesting earlier results as well as our recent works on Bohr's theorem problem.

We present a generalization of a theorem of Naimark which states that the positive definite functions and unitary representations are in one-to-one correspondence. We discuss an alternative proof of Brehmer's positivity for doubly commuting operators. We classify all commuting unitary representations over a finite group and present a structure theorem. In the end, we show that the power of a positive-definite function and a unitary representation need not be a positive definite function and a unitary representation respectively. We also present a characterization of such a class of functions.

Title: Convexity conditions and complex analysisAbstract: The global geometric properties of a space affect the properties of functions that can be defined on it: for example, on a connected topological space a locally constant function is constant. In complex analysis, complex convexity properties such as pseudo convexity play a crucial role in the construction and properties of holomorphic functions and other analytic objects. These conditions become very important in several complex variables since in domains in the plane the required convexity conditions are automatically satisfied.

After introducing classical complex convexity conditions, we discuss partial convexity conditions, which lead to the vanishing of Dolbeault cohomology in specified degrees. At the end, we will introduce some new geometric conditions that allow us to prove the vanishing of Dolbeault cohomology in domains in complex manifolds.

This is ongoing joint work with Phil Harrington and Andy Raich of the University of Arkansas.

We will try to make the talk accessible to a wide audience.

Abstract: In this talk, we discuss various characterizations of C*-extreme points of the C*-convex set of unital entanglement breaking (EB-) maps on matrix algebras. A key contribution is made through the establishment of a Radon-Nikodym type theorem for a specific class of EB-maps, offering a comprehensive understanding of these points. Additionally, a noncommutative counterpart to the Krein-Milman theorem is derived for

C*-convexity within the set of unital EB- maps. Lastly, we highlight the significant connection between C*-extreme points and the notion of degradability in the context of quantum information theory.

Title: Applications of exponential maps to the epimorphism and Zariski

cancellation problem

Abstract: In the first part, we will discuss the Epimorphism Problem and also discuss the famous Abhyankar-Sathaye Epimorphism Conjecture. We will introduce ``Generalised Asanuma varieties" (GAV) of higher dimensions \geq 3 and see some necessary and sufficient conditions for these varieties to be isomorphic to the affine space. We see that this characterization immediately yields a family of higher dimensional hyperplanes satisfying the Abhyankar-Sathaye Conjecture.In the second part, we see some necessary conditions for two GAVs to be isomorphic and also describe automorphisms of a certain subfamily of GAV. These results show that for each d \geq 3, there is a family of infinitely many pairwise non-isomorphic rings which are counterexamples to the Zariski Cancellation Problem for dimension d in positive characteristic. We further give a complete description of two important invariants called Makar-Limanov and Derksen invariants of a certain subfamily of GAV.

This talk is based on a joint work with Neena Gupta.

Title: Restriction theorem for the Fourier-Dunkl transform and its applications to Strichartz inequalitiesAbstract: We define the Fourier-Dunkl transform, which generalizes the Fourier transform. We prove Strichartz’s restriction theorem for the Fourier-Dunkl transform for certain surfaces, namely, cone, paraboloid, sphere, and hyperboloid, and its generalization to the family of orthonormal functions. Finally, as an application of these restriction theorems, we establish versions of Strichartz estimates for orthonormal families of initial data associated with the Schrodinger propagator, wave propagator, and Klein-Gordon propagator for the case of the Dunkl Laplacian. This restriction theorem generalizes Stein-Tomas and Strichartz’s restrictions theorems in special cases. This is a joint work with B. Pradeep, S. S. Mondal, and H. Mejjaoli.
