Title: The J and dHYM equations, and corresponding natural flows.
Time, Day and Date: 11:30 a.m., Tuesday, August 27
Venue: Online (Zoom): https://us06web.zoom.us/j/88652942508?pwd=5qyzxKZbRXYOSTwwDDJZpjQah0qcLl.1
Abstract:
The Jequation and deformed HermitianYangMills (dHYM) equation are two important examples of complex Hessian equations which have received considerable attention in last two decades. The Jequation, introduced independently by S.K. Donaldson and X.X. Chen (1999) from different viewpoint, is related to the cscK problem in K\"{a}hler geometry. The dHYM equation, introduced by LeungYauZaslow (2000), has connection to mirror symmetry in string theory. It is wellknown that each equation admits a (unique) smooth solution if and only if certain cone (or subsolution) condition holds, or equivalently, if and only if a NakaiMoishezon type criterion holds (which is the socalled "stable" situation). In this talk, we will focus on the existence and uniqueness of (singular) solutions for both equations in the unstable case on compact K\"{a}hler surfaces and higher dimensional K\"{a}hler manifolds with Calabi symmetry using some natural flows. Based on a joint work with Dr. Ved Datar (IISc Bengaluru) and Prof. Jian Song (Rutgers University).

Title: The Hodge theory of the KZ equations and enriched representation rings
Time, Day and Date: 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday, August 28
Venue: Ramanujan Hall
Abstract: The representation ring of a simple Lie algebra over the field of complex numbers is the free abelian group on the isomorphism classes of irreducible representations with the product structure given by decomposing the tensor product of two irreducible representations as a direct sum of irreducible representations (with multiplicities). In recent joint work with Prakash Belkale and Swarnava Mukhopadhyay we have defined certain families of "enriched" representation rings: these are free modules over the integral polynomial ring in one variable on the set of irreducible representations, with a product which specializes to the usual product when the variable of the polynomial ring is set to 1. Furthermore, the enriched "multiplicities" are polynomials with nonnegative coefficients. These rings arose in our work on the Hodge theory of the KnizhnikZamolodchikov (KZ) equations: these are certain linear partial differential equations associated to a simple Lie algebra, a finite set of irreducible representations and an auxiliary complex number kappa, and were defined in the context of conformal field theory in the 1980s, but various aspects of these equations, in particular their monodromy, have been studied by mathematicians such as Kohno, Drinfeld and many others. Our work builds on the work of SchechtmanVarchenko and Looijenga which led to the proof that these equations for kappa rational are of GaussManin type, i.e., arise from the cohomology of families of algebraic varieties. In my talk I will explain the construction of the enriched representation rings and how they are relevant to computing the ranks of the Hodge filtration on KZ local systems. The general constructions will be made explicit throughout the talk in the concrete case of the Lie algebra sl_2.
