''New examples of gradient expanding K\"ahler-Ricci solitons''
 
 
 
A complete K\"ahler metric $g$ on a K\"ahler manifold $M$ is a \emph{gradient expanding K\"ahler-Ricci soliton} if there exists a smooth real-valued function $f:M\to\mathbb{R}$ with $\nabla^{g}f$ holomorphic such that $\operatorname{Ric}(g)-\operatorname{Hess}(f)+g=0$. I will present new examples of such metrics on the total space of certain holomorphic vector bundles. This is joint work with Alix Deruelle (Universit\'e Paris-Sud).

''Deformation theory of scalar-flat ALE Kahler surfaces''
 
 
 
We prove a Kuranishi-type theorem for deformations of complex structures on ALE Kahler surfaces. This is used to prove that for any scalar-flat Kahler ALE surfaces, all small deformations of complex structure also admit scalar-flat Kahler ALE metrics. A local moduli space of scalar-flat Kahler ALE metrics is then constructed, which is shown to be universal up to small diffeomorphisms (that is, diffeomorphisms which are close to the identity in a suitable sense). A formula for the dimension of the local moduli space is proved in the case of a scalar-flat Kahler ALE surface which deforms to a minimal resolution of \C^2/\Gamma, where \Gamma is a finite subgroup of U(2) without complex reflections. This is a joint work with Jeff Viaclovsky.

''Representation stability and hypersurface sections''
 
 
 
We give stability results for the cohomology of natural local systems on spaces of smooth hypersurface sections as the degree goes to \infty. These results give new geometric examples of a weak version of representation stability for symmetric, symplectic, and orthogonal groups. The stabilization occurs in point-counting and in the Grothendieck ring of Hodge structures, and we give explicit formulas for the limits using a probabilistic interpretation. These results have natural geometric analogs -- for example, we show that the "average" smooth hypersurface in \mathbb{P}^n is \mathbb{P}^{n-1}!

''Quantitative estimates on the singular sets of Alexandrov spaces''
 
 
 
The definition of quantitative singular sets was initiated by Cheeger and Naber. They proved some volume estimates on such singular sets in non-collapsed manifolds with lower Ricci curvature bounds and their limit spaces. On the quantitative singular sets in Alexandrov spaces, we obtain stronger estimates in a collapsing fashion. We also show that the (k,\epsilon)-singular sets are k-rectifiable and such structure is sharp in some sense. This is a joint work with Aaron Naber.
 
 
 
=== Yu Li ===
 
 
 
In this talk, we prove that if an asymptotically Euclidean (AE) manifold with nonnegative scalar curvature has long time existence of Ricci flow, it converges to the Euclidean space in the strong sense. By convergence, the mass will drop to zero as time tends to infinity. Moreover, in three dimensional case, we use Ricci flow with surgery to give an independent proof of positive mass theorem. A classification of diffeomorphism types is also given for all AE 3-manifolds with nonnegative scalar curvature.

''We develop a procedure to construct Einstein metrics by gluing the Calabi metric to an Einstein orbifold.  We show that our gluing problem is obstructed and we calculate the obstruction explicitly.  When our obstruction does not vanish, we obtain a non-existence result in the case that the base orbifold is compact. When our obstruction vanishes and the base orbifold is non-degenerate and asymptotically hyperbolic we prove an existence result. This is a joint work with Jeff Viaclovsky.  ''

an important role in various  rigidity questions in geometry and group theory.

In these talks I  shall give an introduction to this topic.  In the first talk I will introduce Gromov hyperbolic spaces, define their ideal boundary,  and  discuss their basic properties.  In the second and third talks I will define the visual metrics on the ideal boundary, explain the connection between quasiisometries of   Gromov hyperbolic space and quasiconformal maps on  their ideal boundary, and indicate  how the quasiconformal structure on the ideal boundary can be used to deduce rigidity.
  
A common theme in geometric group theory is to obtain structural results about infinite groups by analyzing their action on metric spaces. In this talk, I will focus on two geometrically significant groups; mapping class groups and outer automorphism groups of free groups.We will describe a particular instance of how the dynamics and geometry of their actions on various spaces provide deeper information about the groups.

Following Kobayashi, we consider Griffiths negative complex Finsler bundles, naturally leading us to introduce Griffiths extremal Finsler metrics. As we point out, this notion is closely related to the theory of interpolation of norms, and is characterized by an equation of complex Monge– Ampere type, whose corresponding Dirichlet problem we solve. As applications, we prove that Griffiths extremal Finsler metrics quantize solutions to a natural PDE in Kahler geometry, related to the construction of flat maps for the Mabuchi metric. This is joint work with Tamas Darvas.
''The extension problem of the mean curvature flow''
 
  
We show that the mean curvature blows up at the first finite singular time for a closed smooth embedded mean curvature flow in R^3.

===Yuanqi Wang===
A key ingredient of the proof is to show a two-sided pseudo-locality property of the mean curvature flow, whenever the mean curvature is bounded.

$G_{2}-$instantons are 7-dimensional analogues of flat connections in dimension 3. It is part of Donaldson-Thomas’ program to generalize the fruitful gauge theory in dimensions 2,3,4 to dimensions 6,7,8. The moduli space of  $G_{2}-$instantons, with virtual dimension $0$, is  expected to have interesting  geometric structure and  yield enumerative invariant for the underlying $7-$dimensional manifold.  
This is a joint work with Haozhao Li.

In this talk, in some reasonable special cases and a fairly complete manner, we will describe the relation between the moduli space of $G_{2}-$instantons and an algebraic geometry moduli on a Calabi-Yau 3-fold.
''Gauduchon metrics with prescribed volume form''
 
  
Every compact complex manifold admits a Gauduchon metric in each conformal class of Hermitian metrics. In 1984 Gauduchon conjectured that one can prescribe the volume form of such a metric.  I will discuss the proof of this conjecture, which amounts to solving a nonlinear Monge-Ampere type equation.  This is a joint work with Gabor Szekelyhidi and Valentino Tosatti.

''Entropy and self-shrinkers of the mean curvature flow''
 
  
The Colding-Minicozzi entropy is an important tool for understanding the mean curvature flow (MCF), and is a measure of the complexity of a submanifold. Together with Ilmanen and White, they conjectured that the round sphere minimises entropy amongst all closed hypersurfaces. We will review the basics of MCF and their theory of generic MCF, then describe the resolution of the above conjecture, due to J. Bernstein and L. Wang for dimensions up to six and recently claimed by the speaker for all remaining dimensions. A key ingredient in the latter is the classification of entropy-stable self-shrinkers that may have a small singular set.

''Short time existence of the Calabi flow with rough initial data''
 
  
Calabi flow was introduced by Calabi back in 1950’s as a geometric flow approach to the existence of extremal metrics. Analytically it is a fourth order nonlinear parabolic equation on the Kaehler potentials which deforms the Kaehler potential along its scalar curvature. In this talk, we will show that the Calabi flow admits short time solution for any continuous initial Kaehler metric. This is a joint work with Weiyong He.

This talk centers on the degenerations of Calabi-Yau metrics. We will focus on the interactions between algebraic degenerations and metric convergence with highly singular behaviors in the collapsing case. As the complex structures degenerate, the collapsing Calabi-Yau metrics may exhibit various wild geometric properties with highly non-algebraic features.

First, as motivating examples, we will describe our recent results on the new collapsing mechanisms of K3 surfaces. Next, we will switch to higher dimensions and we will exhibit some entirely new constructions of degenerating Calabi-Yau metrics which are expected to work in broader contexts. Complex structures degeneration will be accurately characterized by the bubbling and singularity analysis in a geometric manner.

''The mod 8 signature of a fiber bundle''
 
  
In this talk we shall be concerned with the residues modulo 4 and modulo 8 of the signature of a 4k-dimensional geometric Poincare complex. I will explain the relation between the signature modulo 8 and two other invariants: the Brown-Kervaire invariant and the Arf invariant. In my thesis I applied the relation between these invariants to the study of the signature modulo 8 of a fiber bundle. In 1973 Werner Meyer used group cohomology to show that a surface bundle has signature divisible by 4. I will discuss current work with David Benson, Caterina Campagnolo and Andrew Ranicki where we are using group cohomology and  representation theory of finite groups to detect non-trivial signatures modulo 8 of surface bundles.

The relationship between the large-scale geometry of a group and its algebraic structure can be studied via three notions: a group's quasi-isometry class, a group's abstract commensurability class, and geometric actions on proper geodesic metric spaces. A common model geometry for groups G and G' is a proper geodesic metric space on which G and G' act geometrically. A group G is action rigid if every group G' that has a common model geometry with G is abstractly commensurable to G. For example, a closed hyperbolic n-manifold group is not action rigid for all n at least three. In contrast, we show that free products of closed hyperbolic manifold groups are action rigid. Consequently, we obtain the first examples of Gromov hyperbolic groups that are quasi-isometric but do not virtually have a common model geometry. This is joint work with Daniel Woodhouse.

''Analytic functions from hyperbolic manifolds''
 
  
At the heart of Thurston's proof of Geometrization for Haken manifolds is a family of analytic functions between Teichmuller spaces called "skinning maps."  These maps carry geometric information about their associated hyperbolic manifolds, and I'll discuss what is presently known about their behavior.  The ideas involved form a mix of geometry, algebra, and analysis.

The quasiconformal structure on the ideal boundary of Gromov hyperbolic spaces has played an important role in various rigidity questions in geometry and group theory. In these talks I shall give an introduction to this topic. In the first talk I will introduce Gromov hyperbolic spaces, define their ideal boundary, and discuss their basic properties. In the second and third talks I will define the visual metrics on the ideal boundary, explain the connection between quasiisometries of Gromov hyperbolic space and quasiconformal maps on their ideal boundary, and indicate how the quasiconformal structure on the ideal boundary can be used to deduce rigidity.

This talk centers on the degenerations of Calabi-Yau metrics. We will focus on the interactions between algebraic degenerations and metric convergence with highly singular behaviors in the collapsing case.

The relationship between the large-scale geometry of a group and its algebraic structure can be studied via three notions: a group's quasi-isometry class, a group's abstract commensurability class, and geometric actions on proper geodesic metric spaces. A common model geometry for groups G and G' is a proper geodesic metric space on which G and G' act geometrically. A group G is action rigid if every group G' that has a common model geometry with G is abstractly commensurable to G. For example, a closed hyperbolic n-manifold group is not action rigid for all n at least three. In contrast, we show that free products of closed hyperbolic manifold groups are action rigid. Consequently, we obtain the first examples of Gromov hyperbolic groups that are quasi-isometric but do not virtually have a common model geometry. This is joint work with Daniel Woodhouse.
