Abelianization of stable envelopes in symplectic resolutions by Daniel Shenfeld(
Book
)
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
We compute the transition matrix explicitly in the case of cotangent bundles to partial flag varieties, and show that for Grassmannians, it is given by rational Schur polynomials. This recovers in a geometric way the diagonalization of the Hamiltonian in the XXX spin chain. As a second application, we study the case of the Hilbert scheme of points on the plane, and obtain a novel formula expressing Schur polynomials in terms of Jack polynomials

NearInvolutions, the Pillowcase Distribution, and Quadratic Differentials by Rodolfo Antonio Rios Zertuche Rios Zertuche(

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the context of A. Eskin and A. Okounkov's approach to the calculation of the volumes of the different strata of the moduli space of quadratic differentials, two objects have a prominent role. Namely, the characters of nearinvolutions and the pillowcase weights. For the former we give a fairly explicit formula. On the other hand, the pillowcase weights induce a distribution on the space of Young diagrams. We analyze this distribution and prove several facts, including that its limit shape corresponds to the one induced by the uniform distribution, that the probability concentrates on the set of partitions with very similar 2quotients, and that there is no hope for a full Central Limit Theorem

On moduli spaces of real curves in symplectic manifolds by Mohammad Farajzadeh Tehrani(
Book
)
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Given a symplectic manifold (X, o), an almost complex structure J, and an antisymplectic involution & phis;, we study genus zero real Jholomorphic curves in X. There are two types of such curves, those that can be divided into two Jholomorphic discs and those that cannot. Moduli spaces of Jholomorphic discs are more studied in the literature; in this case, we develop and use some degeneration techniques to add to the previous results and get a better understanding of these moduli spaces. We also study the second case, for which the orientation problem is different and define (and calculate) some invariants using these moduli spaces. As shown in this thesis, these two cases are tied together and often need to be combined to get a fully welldefined theory

A bound on the average rank of jinvariant zero elliptic curves by Samuel Ruth(
Book
)
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this thesis, we prove that the average rank of jinvariant 0 elliptic curves, when ordered by discriminant, is bounded above by 3. This work follows from work of Bhargava and Shankar relating elements of the 2Selmer groups of elliptic curves with equivalence classes of certain binary quartic forms. We also count the number of equivalence classes of these binary quartic forms. This step involves counting the number of points on a quadric in a homogenously expanding noncompact region. To count the number of points on this quadric, we use a modified version of the circle method. This work also has an application to the statistics of the class group of certain pure cubic fields

Variations on a theorem of Tate by Stefan Patrikis(
Book
)
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Let F be a number field, with absolute Galois group G. For any homomorphism r of G valued in the ladic points of a linear algebraic group H, we consider lifting problems through covers H' of H with central torus kernel. By a theorem of Tate, elaborated by B. Conrad, any such continuous homomorphism to H lifts to H'. Largely motivated by a question of Conrad, who asked when geometric homomorphisms (in the sense of FontaineMazur) should admit geometric liftings, we address a number of Galoistheoretic, automorphic, and motivic variants of the lifting problem

Some Results on a Fully Nonlinear Equation in Conformal Geometry by Nicholas William Reichert(
Book
)
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Second, we study the question of solving sigma k = constant on nmanifolds M, the "sigma kYamabe problem", when k = 2 and n = 3. The sigmakYamabe problem has been studied for many values of n and k before (by Li and Li, by Guan and Wang, by Gursky and Viaclovsky, by Sheng, Trudinger, and Wang, and by Trudinger and Wang, among others); however, some cases remain open. The case where n <2k is unresolved in general. A perhaps more natural question to consider in this case is solving v2k = constant, for n <2k, where v2k are the renormalized volume coefficients studied by Graham and by Chang and Fang. Unfortunately, the approach used for other values of n and k does not apply in this final casefor v 2k, one cannot use the local estimates of Guan and Wang and of Chen. This is because the local estimates use algebraic properties of sigmak which do not hold for v 2k. Though the sigma2Yamabe problem in dimension 3 has been studied before, we study an alternative approach which avoids the use of the local estimates. We hope this approach may prove useful for resolving the question of solving v2 k = constant

Quantum Cohomology of Hypertoric Varieties and Geometric Representations of Yangians by Michael Ben McBreen(
Book
)
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This thesis compares two geometric constructions of a Yangian, due to Varagnolo and Nakajima on the one hand and Maulik and Okounkov on the other. It also, separately, computes the quantum cohomology of smooth hypertoric varieties, and finds a mirror formula for their quantum connection. It contains brief introductions to the background material for both problems
