''Integrals of eigenfunctions on hyperbolic manifolds''
 
  
Let X be a compact hyperbolic manifold, and let Y be a totally geodesic closed submanifold in X.  I will discuss the problem of bounding the integral of a Laplace eigenfunction on X over Y, as the eigenvalue tends to infinity.  I will present an upper bound for these integrals that is sharp on average, and briefly describe ongoing work with Farrell Brumley in which we attempt to produce eigenfunctions with very large periods.
+
Title: Dirac inner functions
  
 +
Abstract: My talk will focus on some new (and old) complex analytic objects arising from Dirac systems of differential equations.
 +
We will discuss connections between problems in complex function theory, spectral and scattering problems for differential
 +
operators and the non-linear Fourier transform.

Title: A triangular Hilbert transform with curvature, I & II.
  
If E is a compact set of Hausdorff dimension greater than 5/4 on the plane, we prove that there is a point x\in E such that the set of distances between x and E has positive Lebesgue measure. Our result improves upon Wolff's theorem for dim E> 4/3. This is joint work with Larry Guth, Alex Iosevich and Yumeng Ou.  
+
Abstract: The triangular Hilbert is a two-dimensional bilinear singular
 +
originating in time-frequency analysis. No Lp bounds are currently
 +
known for this operator.
 +
In these two talks we discuss a recent joint work with Michael Christ
 +
on a variant of the triangular Hilbert transform involving curvature.
 +
This object is closely related to the bilinear Hilbert transform with
 +
curvature and a maximally modulated singular integral of Stein-Wainger
 +
type. As an application we also discuss a quantitative nonlinear Roth
 +
type theorem on patterns in the Euclidean plane.
 +
The second talk will focus on the proof of a key ingredient, a certain
 +
regularity estimate for a local operator.

''Singular Brascamp-Lieb inequalities and extended boxes in R^n''
+
Title:  Complex analytic problems on domains with good intrinsic geometry
  
Brascamp-Lieb inequalities are L^p estimates for certain multilinear forms on functions on Euclidean spaces. In this talk we consider singular Brascamp-Lieb inequalities, which arise when one of the functions is replaced by a Calderon-Zygmund kernel. We focus on a family of multilinear forms in R^n with a certain cubical structure and discuss their connection to some patterns in positive density subsets in R^n. Based on joint works with V. Kovac and C. Thiele.
+
Abstract: In this talk, I will describe a new class of domains in complex Euclidean space which is defined in terms of the existence of a Kaehler metric with good geometric properties. This class is invariant under biholomorphism and includes many well-studied classes of domains such as strongly pseudoconvex domains, finite type domains in dimension two, convex domains, homogeneous domains, and embeddings of Teichmuller spaces. Further, certain analytic problems are tractable for domains in this family even when the boundary is non-smooth. In particular, it is possible to characterize the domains in this family where the dbar-Neumann operator on (0, q)-forms is compact (which generalizes an old result of Fu-Straube for convex domains).

Title: Improved decoupling for the parabola
  
''Estimates for the first positive eigenvalue of Kohn Laplacian on a pseudo-Hermitian manifold''
+
Abstract: In 2014, Bourgain and Demeter proved the  $l^2$ decoupling estimates for the paraboloid with constant $R^{\epsilon}$. 
 +
We prove an $(l^2, L^6)$ decoupling inequality for the parabola with constant $(\log R)^c$.  This is joint work with Larry Guth and Dominique Maldague.
  
In this talk, I will present my recent works with my collaborators on the lower bound and upper bounds estimates
+
===Kevin Luli===
for the first positive eigenvalues of Kohn Laplacian and sub-Laplacian on a strictly pseudoconvex pseudo-Hermitian CR manifold,
 
which include CR Lichnerowicz-Obata theorem for the lower and upper bounds for the first positive eigenvalue for the
 
Kohn Laplacian on strictly pseudoconvex hypersurfaces.

Title: Smooth Nonnegative Interpolation
  
===Hanlong Fan===
+
Abstract: Suppose E is an arbitrary subset of R^n. Let f: E  \rightarrow [0, \infty). How can we decide if f extends to a nonnegative function C^m function F defined on all of R^n? Suppose E is finite. Can we compute a nonnegative C^m function F on R^n that agrees with f on E with the least possible C^m norm? How many computer operations does this take? In this talk, I will explain recent results on these problems. Non-negativity is one of the most important shape preserving properties for interpolants. In real life applications, the range of the interpolant is imposed by nature. For example, probability density, the amount of snow, rain, humidity, chemical concentration are all nonnegative quantities and are of interest in natural sciences. Even in one dimension, the existing techniques can only handle nonnegative interpolation under special assumptions on the data set. Our results work without any assumptions on the data sets.
  
''A generalization of the theorem of Weil and Kodaira on prescribing residues''
+
===Niclas Technau===
  
An old theorem of Weil and Kodaira says that: For a K\"ahler manifold X, there exists a closed meromorphic one-form with residue divisor D if and only if D is homologous to zero. In this talk, I will generalize Weil and Kodaira's criterion to non-K\"ahler manifolds.
+
Title: Number theoretic applications of oscillatory integrals
  
===Kyle Hambrook===
+
Abstract: We discuss how the analysis of oscillatory integrals can be used to solve number theoretic problems. More specifically, the focus will be on understanding fine-scale statistics of sequences on the unit circle. Further, we shall briefly explain a connection to quantum chaos.
  
''Fourier Decay and Fourier Restriction for Fractal Measures on Curves''
+
===Terence Harris===
  
I will discuss my recent work on some problems concerning
+
Title: Low dimensional pinned distance sets via spherical averages
Fourier decay and Fourier restriction for fractal measures on curves.
 
  
===Laurent Stolovitch===
+
Abstract: An inequality is derived for the average t-energy of weighted pinned distance measures, where 0 < t < 1, in terms of the L^2 spherical averages of Fourier transforms of measures. This generalises the result of Liu (originally for Lebesgue measure) to pinned distance sets of dimension smaller than 1, and strengthens Mattila's result from 1987, originally for the full distance set.
  
''Equivalence of Cauchy-Riemann manifolds and multisummability theory''
+
===Yuval Wigderson===
  
We apply the multisummability theory from Dynamical Systems to CR-geometry. As the main result, we show that two real-analytic hypersurfaces in $\mathbb C^2$ are formally equivalent, if and only if they are $C^\infty$ CR-equivalent at the respective point. As a corollary, we prove that all formal equivalences between real-algebraic Levi-nonflat hypersurfaces in $\mathbb C^2$  are algebraic (and in particular convergent). This is a joint work with I. Kossovskiy and B. Lamel.
+
Title: New perspectives on the uncertainty principle
  
 +
Abstract: The phrase ``uncertainty principle'' refers to a wide array of results in several disparate fields of mathematics, all of which capture the notion that a function and its Fourier transform cannot both be ``very localized''. The measure of localization varies from one uncertainty principle to the next, and well-studied notions include the variance (and higher moments), the entropy, the support-size, and the rate of decay at infinity. Similarly, the proofs of the various uncertainty principles rely on a range of tools, from the elementary to the very deep. In this talk, I'll describe how many of the uncertainty principles all follow from a single, simple result, whose proof uses only a basic property of the Fourier transform: that it and its inverse are bounded as operators $L^1 \to L^\infty$. Using this result, one can also prove new variants of the uncertainty principle, which apply to new measures of localization and to operators other than the Fourier transform. This is joint work with Avi Wigderson.

''Equidistribution results for integral points on affine homogenous algebraic varieties''
+
Title: New Brezis--Van Schaftingen--Yung inequalities via maximal operators, Garsia inequalities and Caffarelli--Silvestre extensions
  
Let Q be a homogenous integral polynomial of degree at least two. We consider certain results and questions concerning the distribution of the integral points on the level sets of Q.
+
Abstract: The celebrated Bourgain--Brezis--Mironescu formula enables us to recover Sobolev spaces in terms of limits of Gagliardo seminorms. Very recently, Brezis, Van Schaftingen and Yung have proposed an alternative methodology to approach Sobolev spaces via limits of weak-type Gagliardo functionals. The goal of this talk is twofold. Firstly, we will show that the BvSY result is a special case of a more general phenomenon based on maximal inequalities. In particular, we shall derive not only analogs of the BvSY theorem for different kinds of function spaces (Lebesgue, Calderon, higher-order Sobolev, …), but also applications to ergodic theory, Fourier series, etc. In the second part of the talk, we shall investigate the fractional setting in the BvSY theorem. Our approach is based on new Garsia-type inequalities and an application of the Caffarelli--Silvestre extension. This is joint work with Mario Milman.

''Completeness of exponentials: Beurling-Malliavin and type problems''
+
Title: Isometries of Wasserstein spaces
  
This talk is devoted to two old problems of harmonic analysis mentioned in the title. Both problems ask when a family of complex exponentials is complete (spans) an L^2-space. The Beruling-Malliavin problem was solved in the early 1960s and I will present its classical solution along with modern generalizations and applications. I will then discuss history and recent progress in the type problem, which stood open for more than 70 years.
+
Abstract: Due to its nice theoretical properties and an astonishing number of
 +
applications via optimal transport problems, probably the most
 +
intensively studied metric nowadays is the p-Wasserstein metric. Given
 +
a complete and separable metric space $X$ and a real number $p\geq1$,
 +
one defines the p-Wasserstein space $\mathcal{W}_p(X)$ as the collection
 +
of Borel probability measures with finite $p$-th moment, endowed with a
 +
distance which is calculated by means of transport plans \cite{5}.
  
 +
The main aim of our research project is to reveal the structure of the
 +
isometry group $\mathrm{Isom}(\mathcal{W}_p(X))$. Although
 +
$\mathrm{Isom}(X)$ embeds naturally into
 +
$\mathrm{Isom}(\mathcal{W}_p(X))$ by push-forward, and this embedding
 +
turned out to be surjective in many cases (see e.g. [1]), these two
 +
groups are not isomorphic in general. Kloeckner in [2] described
 +
the isometry group of the quadratic Wasserstein space
 +
$\mathcal{W}_2(\mathbb{R}^n)$, and it turned out that the case of $n=1$
 +
is special in the sense that $\mathrm{Isom}(\mathcal{W}_2(\mathbb{R})$
 +
is extremely rich. Namely, it contains a large subgroup of wild behaving
 +
isometries that distort the shape of measures. Following this line of
 +
investigation, in \cite{3} we described
 +
$\mathrm{Isom}(\mathcal{W}_p(\mathbb{R}))$ and
 +
$\mathrm{Isom}(\mathcal{W}_p([0,1])$ for all $p\geq 1$.

In this talk I will survey first some of the earlier results in the

subject, and then I will present the key results of [3]. If time
 +
permits, I will also report on our most recent manuscript [4] in
 +
which we extended Kloeckner's multidimensional results. Joint work with Gy\"orgy P\'al Geh\'er (University of Reading)

and D\'aniel Virosztek (IST Austria).

''Radiation fields for wave equations''
+
Title: On the Bochner-Riesz operator and the maximal Bochner-Riesz operator
  
Radiation fields are rescaled limits of solutions of wave equations near "null infinity" and capture the radiation pattern seen by a distant observer. They are intimately connected with the Fourier and Radon transforms and with scattering theory. In this talk, I will define and discuss radiation fields in a few contexts, with an emphasis on spacetimes that look flat near infinity. The main result is a connection between the asymptotic behavior of the radiation field and a family of quantum objects on an associated asymptotically hyperbolic space.
+
Abstract: The Bochner-Riesz problem is one of the most important problems in the field of Fourier analysis. It has a strong connection to other famous problems, such as the restriction conjecture and the Kakeya conjecture. In this talk, I will present some recent improvements to the Bochner-Riesz conjecture and the maximal Bochner-Riesz conjecture. The main methods we used are polynomial partitioning and the Bourgain Demeter l^2 decoupling theorem.

''Short character sums''
+
===Jonathan Hickman===
  
A surprisingly diverse array of problems in analytic number theory have at their heart a problem of bounding (from above) an exponential sum, or its multiplicative cousin, a so-called character sum. For example, both understanding the Riemann zeta function or Dirichlet L-functions inside the critical strip, and also counting solutions to Diophantine equations via the circle method or power sieve methods, involve bounding such sums. In general, the sums of interest fall into one of two main regimes: complete sums or incomplete sums, with this latter regime including in particular “short sums.” Short sums are particularly useful, and particularly resistant to almost all known methods. In this talk, we will see what makes a sum “short,” sketch why it would be incredibly powerful to understand short sums, and discuss a curious proof from the 1950’s which is still the best way we know to bound short sums. We will end by describing new work which extends the ideas of this curious proof to bound short sums in much more general situations.
+
Title: Sobolev improving for averages over space curves
  
===Loredana Lanzani===
+
Abstract: Consider the averaging operator given by convolution with arclength measure on compact piece of a smooth curve in R^n. A simple question is to precisely quantify the gain in regularity induced by this averaging, for instance by studying the L^p-Sobolev mapping properties of the operator. This talk will report on ongoing developments towards understanding this problem. In particular, we will explore some non-trivial necessary conditions on the gain in regularity.  Joint with D. Beltran, S. Guo and A. Seeger.

Title: Canonical blow-ups of Grassmann manifolds
  
It is known that for bounded domains $D$ in $\mathbb C^n$ that are of class $C^2$ and are strongly pseudo-convex, the Cauchy-Szegő projection is bounded in $L^p(\text{b}D, d\Sigma)$ for $1<p<\infty$. (Here $d\Sigma$ is induced Lebesgue measure.)  We show, using appropriate worm domains, that this fails for any $p\neq 2$, when we assume that the domain in question is only weakly pseudo-convex. Our starting point are the ideas of Kiselman-Barrett introduced more than 30 years ago in the analysis of the Bergman projection. However the study of the Cauchy-Szegő projection raises a number of new issues and obstacles that need to be overcome. We will also compare these results to the analogous problem for the Cauchy-Leray integral, where however the relevant counter-example is of much simpler nature.

Abstract:  We introduce certain canonical blow-ups \mathcal T_{s,p,n}, as well as their distinct submanifolds \mathcal M_{s,p,n}, of Grassmann manifolds G(p,n) by partitioning the Plücker coordinates with respect to a parameter s. Various geometric aspects of \mathcal T_{s,p,n} and \mathcal M_{s,p,n} are studied, for instance, the smoothness, the holomorphic symmetries, the (semi-)positivity of the anti-canonical bundles, the existence of Kähler-Einstein metrics, the functoriality, etc. In particular, we introduce the notion of homeward compactification, of which \mathcal T_{s,p,n} are examples, as a generalization of the wonderful compactification.

''Energy Equality for the Navier-Stokes Equations at the First Possible Blowup Time''
+
Title
  
In this talk, we discuss the problem of energy equality for strong solutions of the Navier-Stokes Equations (NSE) at the first time where such solutions may lose regularity.  Our approach is motivated by a famous theorem of Caffarelli, Kohn, and Nirenberg, which states that the set of singular points associated to a suitable weak solution of the NSE has parabolic Hausdorff dimension of at most 1.  In particular, we furnish sufficient conditions for energy equality which depend on the dimension of the singularity set in addition to time and space integrability assumptions; in doing so we improve upon the classical results when attention is restricted to the first blowup time.  When our method is inconclusive, we are able to quantify the possible failure of energy equality in terms of the lower local dimension and the ''concentration dimension'' of a certain measure associated to the solution.  The work described is joint with Roman Shvydkoy (UIC).

''Wasserstein Distance as a Tool in Analysis''
+
Title
  
Wasserstein Distance is a way of measuring the distance between two probability distributions (minimizing it is a main problem in Optimal Transport). We will give a gentle Introduction into what it means and then use it to prove (1) a completely elementary but possibly new and quite curious inequality for real-valued functions and (2) a statement along the following lines: linear combinations of eigenfunctions of elliptic operators corresponding to high frequencies oscillate a lot and vanish on a large set of co-dimension 1 (this is already interesting for trigonometric polynomials on the 2-torus, sums of finitely many sines and cosines, whose sum has to vanish on long lines) and (3) some statements in Basic Analytic Number Theory that drop out for free as a byproduct.

''Minimal surfaces by way of complex analysis''
+
Title
  
After a brief historical introduction, I will present some recent developments in the theory of minimal surfaces in Euclidean spaces which have been obtained by complex analytic methods. The emphasis will be on results pertaining to the global theory of minimal surfaces including Runge and Mergelyan approximation, the conformal Calabi-Yau problem, properly immersed and embedded minimal surfaces, and a new result on the Gauss map of minimal surfaces.

''The geometry of domains with negatively pinched Kaehler metrics''
 
  
Every bounded pseudoconvex domain in C^n has a natural complete metric: the Kaehler-Einstein metric constructed by Cheng-Yau. When the boundary of the domain is strongly pseudoconvex, Cheng-Yau showed that the holomorphic sectional curvature of this metric is asymptotically a negative constant. In this talk I will describe some partial converses to this result, including the following: if a smoothly bounded convex domain has a complete Kaehler metric with close to constant negative holomorphic sectional curvature near the boundary, then the domain is strongly pseudoconvex. This is joint work with F. Bracci and H. Gaussier.

Alexei Poltoratski

Title: Dirac inner functions

Abstract: My talk will focus on some new (and old) complex analytic objects arising from Dirac systems of differential equations. We will discuss connections between problems in complex function theory, spectral and scattering problems for differential operators and the non-linear Fourier transform.

Polona Durcik and Joris Roos

Title: A triangular Hilbert transform with curvature, I & II.

Abstract: The triangular Hilbert is a two-dimensional bilinear singular originating in time-frequency analysis. No Lp bounds are currently known for this operator. In these two talks we discuss a recent joint work with Michael Christ on a variant of the triangular Hilbert transform involving curvature. This object is closely related to the bilinear Hilbert transform with curvature and a maximally modulated singular integral of Stein-Wainger type. As an application we also discuss a quantitative nonlinear Roth type theorem on patterns in the Euclidean plane. The second talk will focus on the proof of a key ingredient, a certain regularity estimate for a local operator.

Andrew Zimmer

Title: Complex analytic problems on domains with good intrinsic geometry

Abstract: In this talk, I will describe a new class of domains in complex Euclidean space which is defined in terms of the existence of a Kaehler metric with good geometric properties. This class is invariant under biholomorphism and includes many well-studied classes of domains such as strongly pseudoconvex domains, finite type domains in dimension two, convex domains, homogeneous domains, and embeddings of Teichmuller spaces. Further, certain analytic problems are tractable for domains in this family even when the boundary is non-smooth. In particular, it is possible to characterize the domains in this family where the dbar-Neumann operator on (0, q)-forms is compact (which generalizes an old result of Fu-Straube for convex domains).

Hong Wang

Title: Improved decoupling for the parabola

Abstract: In 2014, Bourgain and Demeter proved the $l^2$ decoupling estimates for the paraboloid with constant $R^{\epsilon}$. We prove an $(l^2, L^6)$ decoupling inequality for the parabola with constant $(\log R)^c$. This is joint work with Larry Guth and Dominique Maldague.

Kevin Luli

Title: Smooth Nonnegative Interpolation

Abstract: Suppose E is an arbitrary subset of R^n. Let f: E \rightarrow [0, \infty). How can we decide if f extends to a nonnegative function C^m function F defined on all of R^n? Suppose E is finite. Can we compute a nonnegative C^m function F on R^n that agrees with f on E with the least possible C^m norm? How many computer operations does this take? In this talk, I will explain recent results on these problems. Non-negativity is one of the most important shape preserving properties for interpolants. In real life applications, the range of the interpolant is imposed by nature. For example, probability density, the amount of snow, rain, humidity, chemical concentration are all nonnegative quantities and are of interest in natural sciences. Even in one dimension, the existing techniques can only handle nonnegative interpolation under special assumptions on the data set. Our results work without any assumptions on the data sets.

Niclas Technau

Title: Number theoretic applications of oscillatory integrals

Abstract: We discuss how the analysis of oscillatory integrals can be used to solve number theoretic problems. More specifically, the focus will be on understanding fine-scale statistics of sequences on the unit circle. Further, we shall briefly explain a connection to quantum chaos.

Terence Harris

Title: Low dimensional pinned distance sets via spherical averages

Abstract: An inequality is derived for the average t-energy of weighted pinned distance measures, where 0 < t < 1, in terms of the L^2 spherical averages of Fourier transforms of measures. This generalises the result of Liu (originally for Lebesgue measure) to pinned distance sets of dimension smaller than 1, and strengthens Mattila's result from 1987, originally for the full distance set.

Yuval Wigderson

Title: New perspectives on the uncertainty principle

Abstract: The phrase ``uncertainty principle refers to a wide array of results in several disparate fields of mathematics, all of which capture the notion that a function and its Fourier transform cannot both be ``very localized. The measure of localization varies from one uncertainty principle to the next, and well-studied notions include the variance (and higher moments), the entropy, the support-size, and the rate of decay at infinity. Similarly, the proofs of the various uncertainty principles rely on a range of tools, from the elementary to the very deep. In this talk, I'll describe how many of the uncertainty principles all follow from a single, simple result, whose proof uses only a basic property of the Fourier transform: that it and its inverse are bounded as operators $L^1 \to L^\infty$. Using this result, one can also prove new variants of the uncertainty principle, which apply to new measures of localization and to operators other than the Fourier transform. This is joint work with Avi Wigderson.

Title: New Brezis--Van Schaftingen--Yung inequalities via maximal operators, Garsia inequalities and Caffarelli--Silvestre extensions

Abstract: The celebrated Bourgain--Brezis--Mironescu formula enables us to recover Sobolev spaces in terms of limits of Gagliardo seminorms. Very recently, Brezis, Van Schaftingen and Yung have proposed an alternative methodology to approach Sobolev spaces via limits of weak-type Gagliardo functionals. The goal of this talk is twofold. Firstly, we will show that the BvSY result is a special case of a more general phenomenon based on maximal inequalities. In particular, we shall derive not only analogs of the BvSY theorem for different kinds of function spaces (Lebesgue, Calderon, higher-order Sobolev, …), but also applications to ergodic theory, Fourier series, etc. In the second part of the talk, we shall investigate the fractional setting in the BvSY theorem. Our approach is based on new Garsia-type inequalities and an application of the Caffarelli--Silvestre extension. This is joint work with Mario Milman.

Tamas Titkos

Title: Isometries of Wasserstein spaces

Abstract: Due to its nice theoretical properties and an astonishing number of applications via optimal transport problems, probably the most intensively studied metric nowadays is the p-Wasserstein metric. Given a complete and separable metric space $X$ and a real number $p\geq1$, one defines the p-Wasserstein space $\mathcal{W}_p(X)$ as the collection of Borel probability measures with finite $p$-th moment, endowed with a distance which is calculated by means of transport plans \cite{5}.

The main aim of our research project is to reveal the structure of the isometry group $\mathrm{Isom}(\mathcal{W}_p(X))$. Although $\mathrm{Isom}(X)$ embeds naturally into $\mathrm{Isom}(\mathcal{W}_p(X))$ by push-forward, and this embedding turned out to be surjective in many cases (see e.g. [1]), these two groups are not isomorphic in general. Kloeckner in [2] described the isometry group of the quadratic Wasserstein space $\mathcal{W}_2(\mathbb{R}^n)$, and it turned out that the case of $n=1$ is special in the sense that $\mathrm{Isom}(\mathcal{W}_2(\mathbb{R})$ is extremely rich. Namely, it contains a large subgroup of wild behaving isometries that distort the shape of measures. Following this line of investigation, in \cite{3} we described $\mathrm{Isom}(\mathcal{W}_p(\mathbb{R}))$ and $\mathrm{Isom}(\mathcal{W}_p([0,1])$ for all $p\geq 1$.

In this talk I will survey first some of the earlier results in the subject, and then I will present the key results of [3]. If time permits, I will also report on our most recent manuscript [4] in which we extended Kloeckner's multidimensional results. Joint work with Gy\"orgy P\'al Geh\'er (University of Reading) and D\'aniel Virosztek (IST Austria).

Title: On the Bochner-Riesz operator and the maximal Bochner-Riesz operator

Abstract: The Bochner-Riesz problem is one of the most important problems in the field of Fourier analysis. It has a strong connection to other famous problems, such as the restriction conjecture and the Kakeya conjecture. In this talk, I will present some recent improvements to the Bochner-Riesz conjecture and the maximal Bochner-Riesz conjecture. The main methods we used are polynomial partitioning and the Bourgain Demeter l^2 decoupling theorem.

Title: Sobolev improving for averages over space curves

Abstract: Consider the averaging operator given by convolution with arclength measure on compact piece of a smooth curve in R^n. A simple question is to precisely quantify the gain in regularity induced by this averaging, for instance by studying the L^p-Sobolev mapping properties of the operator. This talk will report on ongoing developments towards understanding this problem. In particular, we will explore some non-trivial necessary conditions on the gain in regularity. Joint with D. Beltran, S. Guo and A. Seeger.

Title: Canonical blow-ups of Grassmann manifolds

Abstract: We introduce certain canonical blow-ups \mathcal T_{s,p,n}, as well as their distinct submanifolds \mathcal M_{s,p,n}, of Grassmann manifolds G(p,n) by partitioning the Plücker coordinates with respect to a parameter s. Various geometric aspects of \mathcal T_{s,p,n} and \mathcal M_{s,p,n} are studied, for instance, the smoothness, the holomorphic symmetries, the (semi-)positivity of the anti-canonical bundles, the existence of Kähler-Einstein metrics, the functoriality, etc. In particular, we introduce the notion of homeward compactification, of which \mathcal T_{s,p,n} are examples, as a generalization of the wonderful compactification.
