Title and abstract.

Title: Singularities and fundamental groups


Fundamental group is an important invariant for a topological space.When X is an algebraic variety, one can also consider its algebraic fundamental groupand several local versions of the fundamental group. I will report on some work by Kollár, Kapovich-Kollár and Xu on results related tosingularities and fundamental groups. I will discuss some problems I have in mind related to theseresults.

Title: Chern number inequality via a terminal flip and a divisorial contraction to curve in dimension three.


In this talk, we show that the Chern number increases via a threefold terminal flip and a divisorial contraction to curve by Koll'ar  and Mori's classifications of extremal neighborhoods. This gives the affirmative answers to two Questions by Xie which relate the pusedo-effectiveness of second Chern class  for projective -folds with nef anti-canonical divisor. 


Eugene Xia (NCKU)

Title: Monodromies of moduli spaces of monodromies.


 Monodromy is essential for understanding singular fibres of a morphism.  We are interested in the moduli spaces of character varieties and their related moduli spaces of Higgs bundles.  We will describe a few integrable connections on these moduli spaces and their monodromies.

Title: An application of D-modules: another bridge from algebra to geometry


  In the late 1960s, Verma first studied the structure of highest weight modules over finite-dimensional complex semisimple Lie algebras and proposed the problem of determining the characters of general irreducible highest weight modules. It seems to be a purely algebraic problem but the formula was unknown until 1980s. Kazhdan and Lusztig conjectured the explicit form involving in a family of special polynomials. It was proved by Beilinson–Bernstein and Brylinski–Kashiwara through “translating it in languages of  various areas of mathematics” which was “astonishing for the specialists who had been studying the problem using purely algebraic means.” In this talk, I will explain how D-module theory relates highest weight modules and Schubert varieties.
