Start Date: | 09/2003 |
Abstract: |
For a given projective smooth curve Y, let U(Y, r, d) be the moduli space of semistable bundles of rank r and degree d on Y (r and d are coprime). One of the open problems about the topology of moduli spaces of bundles on curves is to compute Chern-classes of U(Y, r, d) using degeneration method: (1) Degenerate the curve Y into an irreducible curve X with only one node, and construct a degeneration of U(Y, r, d), which is a moduli space G(X) of stable bundles on some semistable curves. (2) Find the relationship between G(X) and U(C, 2, d), where C is the normalization of X and g(C)=g(Y-1), so that one can reduce the problem of genus g(Y)=g to a problem of genus g1. (1) is established, but (2) remains open. Instead of studying the relationship between G(X) and U(C, r, d) in the category of algebraic varieties, we propose to study the relationship in the category of topological spaces. |

To define a reasonable conformal field theory in algebraic geometry. Two basic problems have to be solved. One is to prove that when the curve moves in its moduli space, the associated vector spaces form a vector bundle and there is a logarithmic projective flat connection on this vector bundle. Another problem is to prove that any generalized theta function associated to a singular curve can be obtained from generalized [theta] functions associated to a smooth curve, normalization of the singular curve. |

Abstract: |
To characterize all quadruples (G;X,Y,Z), where G=(V,E) is a multigraph and X,Y,Z are three even-sized subsets of V, for which G has a bond (i.e. a minimal nonempty edge cut) [S, V-S] such that S contains an odd number of vertices from each of X,Y, and Z; to investigate Nash-Williams' conjecture which asserts that every 4 connected toroidal graph contains a Hamiltonian cycle, and the following Seymour-Thomas conjecture: there exist a constant c>0 and a function f(t).0 such that, for any integer t>2, the length of longest cycle in any 3-connected graph G=(V,E) with no K(3,t)-minors (where K(3,t) stands for the 3 by t complete bipartite graph) is at least f(t)[V]∧c(our focus will be on the latter); to describe all graphs with the min-max relation on packing and covering odd cycles (vertex version) in terms of forbidden structures; to study will wavelength allocation problem on trees, rings, and trees of rings, which are three important topologies of optical networks in practice. |
