Title: Spectral theory of automorphic forms
Time, Day and Date: 11:30 a.m., Monday, September 2
Venue: Room 215, Department of Mathematics

2. Commutative Algebra Seminar.
Speaker: R. V. Gurjar (TIFR Mumbai (retired))
Title: Local Analytic Geometry
Time, Day and Date: 12:30 p.m., Tuesday, September 3
Venue: Room 215, Department of Mathematics
Abstract:
LAG is mainly local study of complex analytic varieties. So it is useful for understanding algebraic varieties in a small Euclidean neighborhood of a point. Some part of the theory is just local algebra, particulaly local analytic rings. The theory is quite nontrivial and rich because of results of Cartan, Hamm, Hironaka, Milnor, Mumford, Oka, Remmert, Scheja, Stein, Thullen, Le dung Trang, Whitney,....It is important for singularity theory, from analytic, geometric, and topological viewpoints. No sheaf cohomology is used.
3. Harmonic Analysis Seminar.

Title: ANALYTIC WAVEFRONT SETS OF SPHERICAL
DISTRIBUTIONS ON THE DE SITTER SPACE
Time, Day and Date: 10:30 a.m., Wednesday, September 4
Venue: Online (Zoom): https://meet.google.com/kmoosxtzqh
Abstract: In this work, we determine the wavefront set of certain eigendistributions of the LaplaceBeltrami operator on the de Sitter space. Let G' = {O}_{1,n}(R) be the Lorentz group, and let H' = {O}_{1,n1}(R) ' be its subset. The de Sitter space dS^n is a onesheeted hyperboloid in R^{1+n} isomorphic to G'/H'. A {\it spherical distribution} is an H'invariant eigendistribution of the LaplaceBeltrami operator on dS^n. The space of spherical distributions on the de Sitter space with eigenvalue \lambda, denoted by {D}'_{\lambda}, has dimension 2. We construct a basis for the space of positivedefinite spherical distributions as boundary values of sesquiholomorphic kernels on the crown domains, which are open complex domains in dS^n_{C} containing dS^n on the boundary.
We then characterize the analytic wavefront set for such distributions.

Speaker: Utsav Dewan (ISI Kolkata)
Title: Boundary exceptional sets for radial limits of positive superharmonic functions on Harmonic manifolds
Time, Day and Date: 4:00 p.m., Thursday, September 5
Venue: Ramanujan Hall, Department of Mathematics
Abstract: By classical Fatou (resp. Littlewood) type theorems in various setups, it is wellknown that positive harmonic (resp. superharmonic) functions have nontangential (resp. radial) limits at almost every point on the boundary. In this talk, in the setting of nonpositively curved Harmonic manifolds of purely exponential volume growth, we will see some size estimates of the exceptional sets of points on the boundary at infinity, where a suitable function blows up faster than a prescribed growth rate, along radial geodesic rays, in terms of its Hausdorff dimension or Hausdorff outer measure.
