Intensive Lecures on Semi-orthogonal decomposition of a derived category of an algebraic variety


Prof. Yujiro Kawamata (University of Tokyo)


16:00-17:15 in Jan. 16, 18, 22, 24,   Room 1401 



I will start with the definition of a derived category of an algebraic variety. The derived category contains much essential information of the algebraic variety.

Then I consider a decomposition of the derived category into simpler components called a semi-orthogonal decomposition (SOD) and explain examples.

I will explain SOD’s related to the minimal model program in birational geometry. Some SOD’s are obtained by looking at so-called exceptional objects

or their deformed variants called relative exceptional objects. I will explain examples of SOD’s for some singular surfaces.

Ground-states of a Schrödinger-Poisson-Slater type equation Abstract: Schrödinger-Poisson-Slater equation is a nonlinear modification of Schrödinger equation with a repulsive nonlocal Coulomb potential and a local nonlinearity. We develop a variational framework for a class of Schrödinger-Poisson-Slater type equations and discuss existence, positivity and radial symmetry of ground state solutions

On the self-dual Einstein-Maxwell-Higgs equation on compact surfaces
Abstract: In this talk, we discuss recent progress on the study of the self-dual Einstein-Maxwell-Higgs equation on compact surfaces. We give a brief background on the equation and known results on the plane. The main topics are two theorems on the existence of topological and nontopological type solutions as the coupling parameter tends to be zero.

Existence criterion for standing waves to pseudo-relativistic nonlinear Schrodinger equations

Abstract : The pseudo-relativistic Schrodinger operator is defined by the square root of the elliptic operator , that arises when we consider a relativistic versions of quantum mechanics. Especially, it is used for describing spin zero particles as is Klein-Gordon operator. In this talk, I will present an almost complete existence criterion for standing waves to the pseudo-relativistic nonlinear Schrodinger equations, which exhibit an intermediate features between nonrelativistic nonlinear Schrodinger equations and nonlinear half wave equations.
We will see that this criterion depends on the quantity , not only on n and nonlinear exponent p, where  denotes the frequency of standing wave . Due to the supercriticality of the equation, the standard variational method does not seem to work although the equation enjoys a variational structure. Instead, we approach by adopting the contraction mapping principle. It turns out that a uniform L^p estimate for the pseudo-relativistic operator plays a crucial role for obtaining the existence of solutions in the full range of supercritical exponent p. This shall be obtained by the Hörmander-Mikhlin Theorem based on a symbol analysis of the pseudo-relativistic operator.
