DESCRIPTION:Title: Differential invariants in thermodynamics\nby Eivind Sc
hneider (Hradec Kralove University) as part of Prague-Hradec Kralove semin
ar Cohomology in algebra\, geometry\, physics and statistics\n\nLecture he
ld in ZOOM meeting ID 895-276-2498.\n\nAbstract\nIt is well known that
contact geometry gives the appropriate framework for formulating thermodyn
amics: Thermodynamic states can be interpreted as Legendrian submanifolds
of a certain contact manifold. The existence of a metric on thermodynamic
states has also received some attention in the last decades. The metric ca
n be interpreted as the variance of an underlying probability measure. Les
s studied is the action of the affine group that appears naturally in this
context as the group preserving the variance. We study this group action
by finding generators of its algebra of scalar differential invariants\, w
hich intuitively can be thought of as the observables in the theory. In th
e end\, we discuss the relation between the invariants and some well-known
physical quantities in thermodynamics.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Non-diffeomorphic Reeb foliations and modified Godbillon-Ve
y class\nby Anton Galaev (Hradec Kralove University) as part of Prague
-Hradec Kralove seminar Cohomology in algebra\, geometry\, physics and sta
tistics\n\n\nAbstract\nThe definition of the Reeb foliation depends upon t
wo real functions satisfying certain conditions. All these foliations are
pairwise homeomorphic and have trivial Godbillon-Vey class. We construct e
xplicit examples of the Reeb foliations that are not diffeomorphic. For th
is purpose we show that a modified Godbillon-Vey class defined by Losik is
non-trivial for some Reeb foliations and trivial for some other Reeb foli
ations. This characteristic class takes values in the second order frame b
undle of the leaf space of the foliation. This is a joint work with Ya. Ba
zaikin and P. Gumenyuk.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Triangular decoupling of systems of differential equations\
, with application to separation of variables on Schwarzschild spacetime\nby Igor Khavkine (Institute of Mathematics\, Czech Academy of Scienc
es) as part of Prague-Hradec Kralove seminar Cohomology in algebra\, geome
try\, physics and statistics\n\n\nAbstract\nCertain tensor wave equations
admit a complete separation of variables on the Schwarzschild spacetime (s
tatic\, spherically symmetric black hole)\, resulting in complicated syste
ms of radial mode ODEs. The spectral theory of these systems has important
applications to the stability analysis electromagnetic and gravitational
perturbations of the black hole. However\, almost none of the important qu
estions about the radial mode equations can be answered in their original
form. I will discuss a drastic simplification of these ODE systems to spar
se upper triangular form that is directly susceptible to spectral analysis
. Essential to this simplification are geometric properties of the origina
l tensor wave equations\, ideas from homological algebra and from the theo
ry of ODEs with rational coefficients. Based on [arXiv:1711.00585\, 1801.0

on-stationary 1-dimensional flows of gases described by a quasilinear syst
em of differential equations including Euler equation and continuity equat
ion. We show that equations in question essentially depend on thermodynami
cs of the medium. We represent the system by means of 2-forms on zero-jet
space and get some exact solutions by means of such a representation. The
solutions obtained are multivalued\, we find caustics and shock wave front
. The method can be applied to any thermodynamic state of the medium as we

nby Leonid Positselski (Institute of Mathematics\, Czech Academy of Scienc

try\, physics and statistics\n\n\nAbstract\nKoszul algebras are a natural
class of graded algebras with\nquadratic relations\, defined by a series o
f homological conditions.\nTo a Koszul algebra over a field with finite-di
mensional components\,\none can assign a one-dependent stochastic 0-1 sequ
ence\, which carries\ninformation about the dimensions of the algebra's gr
ading components.\nThis construction allows to show that the Hilbert serie
s of a Koszul\nalgebra can be extended meromorphically to the circle of do
uble radius.\nConjecturally\, such Hilbert series are meromorphic in the w

sics and statistics\n\n\nAbstract\nBornological coarse spaces are "large s
cale"\ngeneralizations of metric spaces (up to quasi-isometry). Homologica
l\ninvariants of such spaces are given by coarse homology theories\, which
\nare functors from the category of bornological coarse spaces to a stable
\ncocomplete ∞-category\, satisfying additional axioms. Among the main\n
examples of coarse homology theories\, there are coarse versions of\nordin
ary homology\, of topological\nand algebraic K-theory. In the talk we defi
ne G-equivariant coarse\nversions of the classical Hochschild and cyclic h
omologies (of\nalgebras). If k is a field\, the evaluation at the one poin
t space\ninduces equivalences with the classical Hochschild and cyclic hom
ology\nof k. In the equivariant setting\, the G-equivariant coarse Hochsch
ild\n(cyclic) homology of the discrete group G agrees with the classical\n
Hochschild (cyclic) homology of the associated group algebra k[G].\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Lorentzian Symmetry Predicts Universality Beyond Power Law
s\nby Stephen J. Watson (School of Mathematics & Statistics\, Universi
ty of Glasgow) as part of Prague-Hradec Kralove seminar Cohomology in alge
bra\, geometry\, physics and statistics\n\n\nAbstract\nThe statistical phy
sics governing phase-ordering dynamics following a symmetry breaking first
-order phase transition is an area of active research. The Coarsening/Agei
ng of the ensemble of phase domains\, wherein irreversible annihilation o
r joining of domains yields a growing characteristic domain length\, is a
omniprescent feature whose universal characteristics one would wish to und
erstand. Driven kinetic Ising models and growing nano-faceted crystals are
theoretically important examples of such Coarsening (Ageing) Dynamical Sy
stems (CDS)\, since they additionally break thermodynamic fluctuation-diss
ipation relations.\nPower-laws for the growth in time of the characteristi
c size of domains (e.g.\, lengths) of CDS\, and a concomitant {\\em scale
-invariance} of the associated length distributions\, has so frequently b
een empirically observed that their presence has acquired the status of a
principle\; the so-called Dynamic-Scaling Hypothesis. \nBut the dynamical
symmetries of a given CDS- its Coarsening Group $G$ - may include more tha
n the global spatio-temporal scalings underlying the {\\em Dynamic Scaling
Hypothesis}. \nIn this talk\, I will present a recently developed theoret
ical framework (Ref.[1]) that shows how the symmetry group G of a Coarseni
ng (ageing) Dynamical System (CDS) necessarily yields G-equivariance (cova
riance) of the CDS's universal statistical observables. We exhibit this t
heory for a variety of model systems\, of both thermodynamic and driven ty
pe\, with symmetries that may also be {/em emergent} (Ref. [2\,3]) and/or
{\\em hidden}. We will close with a magical theoretical coarsening law whi

esco Cattafi (KU Leuven) as part of Prague-Hradec Kralove seminar Cohomolo
gy in algebra\, geometry\, physics and statistics\n\n\nAbstract\nA Γ-stru
cture on a manifold is a maximal atlas whose changes of coordinates take v
alues in a Lie pseudogroup Γ. Various geometric structures (e.g. symplect
ic\, complex and contact structures) fit in this framework\, but there is
no general definition of almost Γ-structure (e.g. almost symplectic\, alm
ost complex and almost contact structures) in terms of Γ. In this talk we
are going to fill this gap by introducing the general definition of an al
most Γ-structure\, and presenting a characterisation of its formal integr
ability. This will be obtained by introducing the concept of principal Pfa
ffian bundle. We will draw inspiration from the theory of PDEs\, from Pois
son geometry\, as well as from similar results in the theory of G-structur
es\, which we recover as particular cases. This is joint work with Marius

ometry\, physics and statistics\n\n\nAbstract\nBy the Brown-Gray’s class
ification\, there are four classes of Riemannian manifolds $M$ with parall

= \\dim M − 1$\, $r = 2$ and $M$ a $G_2$-manifold\, $r = 3$ and $M$ a $
Spin(7)$-manifold. For the first three classes it has been proven by Bryli
nski\, LeBrun\, and Verbitsky\, via ad hoc arguments for each of these cla
sses\, that the higher knot spaces for $M$ carry a natural formally Kähle
r structure. More recently\, Henrich provided a new proof for the $r = \\d
im M − 1$ case. In a recent work with Hông Vân Lê (arXiv:1912.05175)\
, we show how a variant of Henrich's construction can be used to provide a
uniform proof for all four classes. In particular\, this provides a proof
for the previously unknown case of $Spin(7)$-manifolds.\n

based on joint work with Stephane Geudens and Marco Zambon\, I develop the

formation problem. Indeed\, we establish a one-to-one correspondence betwe
en the small deformations of a given symplectic foliation and the MC eleme
nts of the associated $L_\\infty$ algebra. Further\, we prove that\, under
this one-to-one correspondence\, the equivalence by isotopies of symplect
ic foliations agrees with the gauge equivalence of MC elements. Finally\,
we show that the infinitesimal deformations of symplectic foliations can b
e obstructed.\n

the Givental group of rank one and Heisenberg-Virasoro symmetry group of
the KP integrable hierarchy. In particular I will show that only a two-par
ameter family of the Givental operators can be identified with elements of
the Heisenberg-Virasoro symmetry group. This family describes triple Hodg
e integrals satisfying the Calabi-Yau condition. Using identification of t
he elements of two groups it is possible to prove that the generating func

$\\Theta$-version are tau-functions of the KP hierarchy. This generalizes
the result of Kazarian on KP integrability in case of linear Hodge integr
als. I will also describe the relation of this family of tau-functions wit

DESCRIPTION:Title: Boundary conditions and edge modes in gauge theories\n
by Alexander Schenkel (University of Nottingham) as part of Prague-Hradec
Kralove seminar Cohomology in algebra\, geometry\, physics and statistics\
n\n\nAbstract\nThe fields of a classical gauge theory form a smooth groupo
id (aka stack) with morphisms given by gauge transformations. From this pe
rspective\, the concept of "equality" of two gauge fields $A$ and $A'$ is
not a property but rather additional data given by the choice of a gauge t
ransformation $A \\to A'$ which witnesses that $A$ and $A'$ are "the same"
. In this talk\, I will explain how this higher-categorical point of view
is useful to study gauge theories on manifolds with boundaries and defects
. In particular\, I will show that the additional data witnessing boundary
conditions are precisely the famous edge modes from physics. As examples\
, I will discuss 3d Abelian Chern-Simons theory on manifolds with boundary
\, which is physically describing the quantum Hall system\, and also the 4
d holomorphic Chern-Simons theory of Costello and Yamazaki where the edge
modes on surface defects determine 2d integrable field theories.\n\nThis t
alk is based on arXiv:1907.1065

Abstract\nConsider a smooth manifold with a Riemannian metric satisfying s
ome sort of curvature constraint like\, for example\, positive scalar curv
ature\, non-negative Ricci or negative sectional curvature\, being Einstei
n\, Kähler\, Sasaki\, etc. A natural question to study is then what the s
pace of all such metrics does look like. Moreover\, one can also pose this
question for corresponding moduli spaces of metrics\, i.e.\, quotients of
the former by (suitable subgroups of) the diffeomorphism group of the man
ifold\, acting by pulling back metrics.\n\nThese spaces are customarily eq
uipped with the topology of smooth convergence on compact subsets and the
quotient topology\, respectively\, and their topological properties then p
rovide the right means to measure 'how many' different metrics and geometr
ies the given manifold actually does exhibit\; but one can topologize and
view those also in very different manners.\n\nIn my talk\, I will report o
n some general results and open questions about spaces and moduli spaces o
f metrics with a focus on non-negative Ricci or sectional curvature as wel
l as other lower curvature bounds on closed and open manifolds\, and\, in
particular\, also discuss broader non-traditional approaches from metric g
eometry and analysis to these objects and topics.\n

nby Marco Benini (University of Genoa) as part of Prague-Hradec Kralove se
minar Cohomology in algebra\, geometry\, physics and statistics\n\n\nAbstr
act\nAlgebraic quantum field theory (AQFT) axiomatizes quantum field theor
ies (QFTs) as functors A assigning to each spacetime M an algebra A(M)\, i
nterpreted as the algebra of observables of a QFT over the spacetime M. To
support this physical interpretation\, certain physical axioms are impose
d on the functors A. None of these axioms\, however\, addresses the follow
ing physically desirable feature: given a "smooth" family M_s of spacetime
s\, the family of algebras of observables A(M_s) should depend "smoothly"
on the parameter s in an appropriate sense. (Speaking even more loosely\,
a "mild variation" of the geometry of spacetime should determine a "mild v
ariation" of the algebra of observables.) The purpose of this talk is to p
resent a framework\, based on stacks of categories\, that allows for the s
mooth refinement of AQFTs mentioned above. To illustrate this framework\,
we will explore in detail the case of smooth 1-dimensional AQFTs. (Based o

by Jérémie Joudioux (Albert Einstein Institute\, Golm) as part of Prague
-Hradec Kralove seminar Cohomology in algebra\, geometry\, physics and sta
tistics\n\n\nAbstract\nThe purpose of the talk is to illustrate how differ
ential complexes can be used in relativity. Electromagnetism and linearize
d gravity (more generally higher-spin fields) are governed by hyperbolic s
ystems of partial differential equations. Solutions to these systems can b
e generated by the mean of potentials (here\, Hertz potentials) satisfying
a wave equation. It is possible to recast the problem of representing a s
olution to these higher-spin fields by Hertz potentials in the context of
the initial value problem. Initial data for higher-spin fields satisfy con
straint equations\, and cannot be chosen freely. The integrability conditi
ons for these constraints are described by elliptic complexes. These ellip
tic complexes also happen to be those describing the relation between init
ial data for higher-spin fields and those for their Hertz potentials. The
problem of describing the asymptotic behavior of generic solutions to high
er-spin fields can then be completely deduced from the asymptotic behavior
of solutions to the scalar wave equations on flat spacetime.\n

groups representations\, the famous Jones polynomial for knots or topologi

presentations of mapping class groups of surfaces expected to have rich pr
operties and 3-manifold invariants).\nAll these constructions rely on the
algebraic background surrounding quantum groups so that their topological
content is often mysterious in the end\, and finally the subject of many c
onjectures in this field called quantum topology.\nWe are able to recover
quantum groups modules from homology of configuration spaces\, and it give

DESCRIPTION:Title: Shortest and straightest geodesics in sub-Riemannian geome
try\nby Dmitri Alekseevsky (Institute for Information Transmission Pro
blems\, Moscow) as part of Prague-Hradec Kralove seminar Cohomology in alg
ebra\, geometry\, physics and statistics\n\n\nAbstract\nWe present a short
introduction to sub-Riemannian geometry\, concentrating\non the various d
efinitions of sub-Riemannian geodesics and their relationships.\nE. Herz r
emark that there are two main characterisations of geodesics in\nRiemannia
n geometry: geodesics as shortest curves\, based on the Mopertrui's\nprinc
iple of least action ( variational approach ) and\ngeodesics as straightes
t curves based on d'Alembert's principle of virtual\nwork.\n\nThese lead t
o different\, but equivalent definitions of geodesics in Riemannian\ngeome
try. These definitions can be generalized to sub-Riemannian geometry\,\nbu
t they become non equivalent. We consider 3 definitions of sub-Riemannian\
ngeodesics as shortest curves (Euler-Lagrange\, Hamilton and Pontryagin)\,
\nwhich mostly used in control theory and 3 definitions of geodesics as st
raightest\ncurves (d'Alembert \, Levi-Civita-Schouten and Cartan-Tanaka-Mo
rimoto )\,\nused in nonholonomic mechanics. We discuss relationship betwee
n geodesicsof different types.\nGeneralising R. Montgomery result\, we con
sider a class of sub-Riemannian\nmetrics on the total space P of the princ
ipal bundle π : P → M = P/G\nover a Riemannian manifold M with a princi
pal connection ( the Chaplygin\nsystems)\, where shortest geodesics consis
tent with straightest geodesics. This\nis an extension of the first exampl
e by L. D. Faddeev and A.M. Vershik.\nIt gives a partial answer on their q
uestion about characterization of\nsub-Riemannian manifolds with this prop
erty.\n\nUsing the geometry of flag manifolds\, we describe some classes o
f compact\nhomogeneous sub-Riemannian manifolds ( including contact sub-Ri
emannian\nmanifolds and symmetric sub-Riemannian manifolds ) where straigh
test geodesics\ncoincides with shortest geodesics. Construction of geodesi
cs in these cases\nreduces to description of Riemannian geodesics of the R
iemannian homogeneous\nmanifold.\n

Cohomology in algebra\, geometry\, physics and statistics\n\n\nAbstract\n
Information geometry (IG) and Optimal transport (OT) have been attracting
much research attention in various fields\, in particular machine learning
and statistics. In this talk\, we present results on the generalization o
f IG and OT distances for finite-dimensional Gaussian measures to the sett
ing of infinite-dimensional Gaussian measures and Gaussian processes. Our
focus is on the Entropic Regularization of the 2-Wasserstein distance and
the generalization of the Fisher-Rao distance and related quantities. In b
oth settings\, regularization leads to many desirable theoretical properti
es\, including in particular dimension-independent convergence and sample
complexity. All of the presented formulations admit closed form expression
s that can be efficiently computed and applied practically.\n

University of Tromsø) as part of Prague-Hradec Kralove seminar Cohomology
in algebra\, geometry\, physics and statistics\n\n\nAbstract\nRelative in
variants help to understand singularities of group actions on manifolds. T
heir weights are cocycles modulo coboundaries and thus correspond to the f
irst Gelfand-Fuks cohomology. Relative differential invariants correspond
to prolongation of the action to jet-spaces\, and are important in the equ
ivalence problem. I will discuss the weight lattice and the finiteness the

-Poisson geometry\nby Thomas Strobl (University of Lyon) as part of Pr
ague-Hradec Kralove seminar Cohomology in algebra\, geometry\, physics and
statistics\n\n\nAbstract\nWe recall the notion of singular foliations and
show how to extend it in a compatible way to the presence of a Riemannian
metric. Morita equivalence of such structures provides an equivalence rel
ation on the geometry transverse to the leaves. Finally we extend "coisot
ropic submanifolds of a Poisson manifold" to potentially singular subspace
s\, yielding what we call an I-Poisson structure\, and use this notion to
construct an invariant of singular Riemannian foliations under the above-m
entioned Morita equivalence. \nThis is joint work in progress with Hadi Na

of smooth structures\nby Vladimir Chernov (Dartmouth College) as part
of Prague-Hradec Kralove seminar Cohomology in algebra\, geometry\, physi
cs and statistics\n\n\nAbstract\nTwo events in a spacetime are called caus
ally related if the information can get from one event point to the other.
\n \nIn the joint works with Stefan Nemirovski we established that Legendr
ian linking of the spheres of light rays passing through the two points co
mpletely determines causality for spacetimes of dimensions greater or equa
l than 4. For the spaces times of dimension 3 causal structure is complete
ly determined by topological linking.\n \nThese results settle the conject
ures of Robert Low and of Jose Natario and Paul Todd. They also give an an
swer to the problem on the Vladimir Arnold problem list communicated by Ro
ger Penrose.\n \nWe will discuss these results and some ideas about how to
apply the link theory to the study of black holes.\n \nIf time permits we
will explain why exotic smooth structures are likely not useful in genera
l relativity\, since the natural physical assumption impose strong censors
hip on the class of possible smooth structures on a spacetime and such a s
tructure is unique and natural.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: CR-twistor spaces over manifolds with $G_2$ -and $Spin(7)$
-structures\nby Hong Van Le (Institute of Mathematics of the Czech Aca
demy of Sciences) as part of Prague-Hradec Kralove seminar Cohomology in a
lgebra\, geometry\, physics and statistics\n\n\nAbstract\nIn 1984 LeBrun
constructed a CR-twistor space over an arbitrary conformal Riemannian
3-manifold and proved that the CR-structure is formally integrable.
This twistor construction has been generalized by Rossi in 1985 f
or $m$-dimensional Riemannian manifolds endowed with a $(m-1)$-fold vec
tor cross product (VCP). In 2011 Verbitsky generalized LeBrun's cons
truction of twistor-spaces to $7$-manifolds endowed with a
$G$-structure. In my talk I shall explain how to unify and generalize
LeBrun's\, Rossi's and Verbitsky's construction of a CR-twistor s
pace to the case where a Riemannian manifold $(M\, g)$ has
a VCP structure. Then I shall show that the formal integrability of t
he CR-structure is expressed in terms of a torsion tensor on the tw
istor space\, which is a Grassmanian bundle over $(M\, g)$. If the VCP
structure on $(M\,g)$ is generated by a $G_2$- or $Spin(7)$-structure\,
the "vertical" component of the torsion tensor vanishes\, if and only
if $(M\, g)$ has constant curvature\, and the "horizontal" component v
anishes\, if $(M\,g)$ is a torsion-free $G_2$ or $Spin(7)$-manifo
ld. Finally I shall discuss related open problems. This is a joint work

DESCRIPTION:Title: Symmetry and Separation of variables\nby Stepan Hudece
k (Charles University) as part of Prague-Hradec Kralove seminar Cohomology
in algebra\, geometry\, physics and statistics\n\n\nAbstract\nWe present
a condition under which a differential operator on a two dimensional manif
old admits a so-called separated solution and the separation is non-trivia
l in a sense\, that we explain. Along the way we "develop" definitions in
order to make these propositions precise\, such as of a symmetry generatin
g an operator and of a function that does not depend on a set of variables
with respect to a coordinate chart.\n\nWe are motivated by problems in Ph
ysics\, where the separation of variables is often used\, e.g.\, in specif
ic problems of electromagnetic waves\, quantum mechanics (hydrogen atom)\,
or in general relativity. In mathematical Physics the notion of separati
on was studied in many works\, including the works of Kalnins\, Winternitz
\, Miller and Koornwinder. In a part of the Physics literature\, the notio
n of the separation is studied without giving a definition of a separated
solution.\n\nIn mathematics\, more abstract versions of the separation occ
urred in the works of Stackel\, Kostant\, and M. Eastwood. However\, as fa
r as we know\, no sufficient condition on the non-triviality of a separate
d solution occurs in any of these works.\n\nThe talk is based on a bachelo
r thesis of the speaker. Joint work with S. Krysl (Math. Inst.\, Charles U

algebra\, geometry\, physics and statistics\n\n\nAbstract\nCartan and Kil
ling described finite-dimensional simple Lie algebras (over fields of real
or complex numbers) in terms of the distributions they preserve. The tech
nique of root system and Dynkin (Coxeter) graphs was discovered several de
cades later. Two o the four series of simple infinite-dimensional Lie alge
bras of vector fields are Cartan prolongations of non-positive parts of si
mple finite-dimensional Lie algebras. For any $\\mathbb{Z}$-grading of any
simple finite-dimensional Lie algebra $\\mathfrak{g}$ (bar the two series
of examples)\, the Cartan prolongation of the non-positive part of $\\mat
hfrak{g}$ returns $\\mathfrak{g}$. This is not so for the exceptional Lie
algebra $\\mathfrak{g}_2$ in characteristic 5\, whose Cartan prolongation
is called Melikyan algebra. Recall that the Lie superalgebras appeared not
in high energy physics in 1970s\, but in topology\, and either over $\\ma
thbb{Z}$ as super Lie rings\, or over finite fields. Lately\, modular Lie
(super)algebras became of interest due to their relation to quantum groups
. I intend to tell you about two modular Lie superalgebras constructed (to
gether with S.Bouarroudj and P.Grozman) a la the Melikyan algebra. I hope
to have time to say how to compute the analogs of the curvature tensors in
presence of non-integrable distribution these algebras preserve.\n

nWe consider the problem of classifying the orbits of $SL(2\, \\mathbb{C})

C}^2 \\otimes \\mathbb{C}^2$. In quantum information theory this is known
as the\nclassification of four qubit states under SLOCC operations. We app
roach\nthe problem by constructing the representation via a symmetric pair
of max-\nimal rank. This makes it possible to apply the theory of θ-repr
esentations\ndeveloped by Vinberg in the 70’s. The orbits are devided in
to three types:\nnilpotent\, semisimple and mixed. The orbits of each type
are classified sep-\narately. We also obtain the stabilizers of represent

group $\\Gamma_\\xi \\times H$ and associated to a locally symple
ctic isotopy ${\\{\\varphi_t\\}}$ of $(M\, \\omega)$ with flux $\\xi \\in
H ^1 (M\, R)$. Then $H$ acts naturally on $HFN^* (M^{\\Gamma_\\xi \\time

(M^{\\Gamma_\\xi \\times H}\, Q))^G$ of the fixed points of the $G$-a

erting that the sum of the Betti numbers of $HFN^* (M ^{\\Gamma_\\xi}

ical cohomological estimate of the numbers of the fixed points of
a nondegenerate locally Hamiltonian symplectomorphism. If $H$ is nont

points of non-degenerate locally Hamiltonian symplectomorphisms of

Angers\, France) as part of Prague-Hradec Kralove seminar Cohomology in al
gebra\, geometry\, physics and statistics\n\n\nAbstract\nPassing from prob
abilities to finite measures\, from finite measures to measures\, and from
measures to infinite dimensional integrals\,we develop examples of diffeo
logies on each of these classes of spaces\, partially from works of the au
thor\, and partially from other approaches in the existing literature. The
highlighted spaces include finite and infinite configurations\, Monte-car
lo sequences\, Radon measures\, Haar and Lebesgue integrals in the space o
f connections\, and an infinite dimensional Lebesgue mean. The highlighted
diffeologies include functional diffeology\, vague diffeology\, the Cauch
y diffeology and pro-finite diffeologies. The exposition intends to give a
rigorous differential geometric setting for some actual differential geo
metry related to probability and integration theory.\n

try\nby Florio Ciaglia (Universidad Carlos III de Madrid) as part of P
rague-Hradec Kralove seminar Cohomology in algebra\, geometry\, physics an
d statistics\n\n\nAbstract\nThe purpose of this talk is to present a conne
ction between the mathematical entities mentioned in the title. It will be
argued that Jordan algebras provide a suitable playground in which parame
tric models of classical and quantum information geometry can joyfully pla
y (and hopefully thrive). In order to recover the Riemannian geometry of p
arametric models extensively used in classical and quantum information geo
metry\, the method of coadjoint orbits will be adapted to Jordan algebras.
Indeed\, given the symmetric nature of the Jordan product\, the analogue
of the Konstant-Kirillov-Souriau symplectic form becomes a symmetric covar
iant tensor field. When suitable choices of Jordan algebras are made\, it
is possible to recover the Fisher-Rao metric tensor characteristic of clas
sical information geometry or the Bures-Helstrom metric tensor appearing i
n quantum information geometry. This instance tells us that geometrical st
ructures in information geometry can be found looking at algebraic structu
res associated with Jordan algebras. The discussion will focus only on the
finite-dimensional case\, but questions and comments on the possibility o
f extending the results in infinite dimensions are welcome.\n

Misha Temkin (Dartmouth College) as part of Prague-Hradec Kralove seminar
Cohomology in algebra\, geometry\, physics and statistics\n\n\nAbstract\n
Morse function on a manifold $M$ is called strong if all its critical poin
ts have different critical values. Given a strong Morse function $f$ and a
field $F$ we construct a bunch of elements of $F$\, which we call Bruhat
numbers (they're defined up to sign). More concretely\, Bruhat number is w
ritten on each bar in the barcode of $f$ (a.k.a. Barannikov decomposition)
. It turns out that if homology of $M$ over $F$ is that of a sphere\, then
the product of all the numbers is independent of $f$. We then construct t
he barcode and Bruhat numbers with twisted (a.k.a. local) coefficients and
prove that the mentioned product equals the Reidemeister torsion of $M$.
In particular\, it's again independent of $f$. This way we link Morse theo
ry to the Reidemeister torsion via barcodes. Time permitting\, we will als
o discuss how parametric Morse theory comes into play. Based on a joint wo
rk with Petya Pushkar\, https://arxiv.org/abs/2012.05307\n

Abstract\nIn 1976\, Charles Fefferman constructed\, in a canonical way\, a
conformal structure of Lorentzian\nsignature on a circle bundle over any
given strictly pseudo-convex Cauchy-Riemann (CR) manifolds\nof hypersurfac
e type.\n\nIt is also known\, notably through the work of Roger Penrose an

CR three-folds underlie four-dimensional Einstein Lorentzian\nmetrics who
se Weyl tensors are said to be algebraically special.\n\nIn this talk\, I
will show how these algebraically special Einstein metrics find a natural
formulation as exact perturbations of Fefferman’s original construction.
The additional CR data required turns out to be constrained by a non-line

and is related to the existence of CR functions.\n

a brief introduction to a relative version of symplectic field theory (SFT
) for Legendrian submanifolds in a particular class of contact manifolds.
This will provide us with Chekanov-Eliashberg differential graded algebra
(DGA)\, whose homology is an invariant of Legendrian isotopy. This algebra
ic structure is difficult to compute and so we will simplify the different
ial using (bi)linearization. Then we will sketch the proof of DGA-homotopy
criterion for augmentations using a duality long exact sequence\, which m
ay be seen as a version of Poincare duality for this relative SFT. We will
mention the geometric origin of those augmentations coming from exact Lag
rangian fillings of our Legendrian submanifold. If time permits\, we will
show the application of the mentioned results to the question of geography
for bilinearized Legendrian contact homology of disconnected Legendrian s

manifold with a vanishing second Stiefel--Whitney class and equipped with
a symplectic form\, it is possible to define the so-called symplectic spin
or bundle (B. Kostant) that is a parallel notion to the spinor bundle on a
Riemannian manifold. The fibre of the bundle is an infinite dimensional c
omplex vector space which is called the space of symplectic spinors. It is
a direct sum of two irreducible representations of the connected double c
over of the symplectic group.\n\n The tensor product of exterior forms on
the manifold with the symplectic spinor bundle ("twisted" deRham complex)
splits into subbundles and the symplectic twistor operators are defined wi
th help of them. We describe their construction. Computing a representatio
n-theoretic characteristic (Schur--Weyl--Howe type duality)\, we can deter
mine the symbols of the symplectic twistor operators and prove the ellipti

ue-Hradec Kralove seminar Cohomology in algebra\, geometry\, physics and s

ial graded algebra by multiplying Massey products by a further element giv
es an object that has less dependence on choices than the Massey products\
, making them easier to work with. On the other hand\, all Massey products
can be recovered from these tensors when the cohomology algebra satisfies
Poincare duality\, like for the de Rham complex of a closed manifold. Mor
eover\, suitable interpretations of these tensors can capture information
about the rational homotopy type even when the Massey products are undefin
ed. For closed simply-connected 7-manifolds these tensors (along with the
cohomology algebra itself) suffice to determine the rational homotopy type
. Conjecturally the same is true for closed 8-manifolds\, but at least the
vanishing of the tensors is equivalent to formality in that case. This is
based on joint work with Diarmuid Crowley and Csaba Nagy.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Almost invariant differential calculus\nby Jan Slovak
(Masaryk University) as part of Prague-Hradec Kralove seminar Cohomology i
n algebra\, geometry\, physics and statistics\n\n\nAbstract\nFor more than
hundred years\, various concepts were developed to understand the \nfield
s of geometric objects and invariant \ndifferential operators between them
for conformal Riemannian and projective geometries. More recently\, sever
al general tools were presented for the entire class of parabolic geometri
es\, i.e.\, the Cartan geometries modelled on homogeneous spaces G/P with
P a parabolic subgroup in a semi-simple Lie group G. Similarly to conforma
l Riemannian and projective structures\, all these geometries determine a
class of distinguished affine connections\, which carry an affine structur
e modelled on differential 1-forms . They correspond to reductions of P t
o its reductive Levi factor\, and they are called the Weyl structures simi
larly to the conformal case. The standard definition of differential invar
iants in this setting is as affine invariants of these connections\, which
do not depend on the choice within the class. In this talk\, we describe
a universal calculus which provides an important first step to determine s
uch invariants. I shall present a natural procedure how to construct all a
ffine invariants of Weyl connections\, which depend only tensorially on th
e deformations. This is a joint work with Andreas Cap.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Generalized Prequantum Bundle in Diffeology\nby Patric
k Iglesias-Zemmour (The Hebrew University of Jerusalem) as part of Prague-
Hradec Kralove seminar Cohomology in algebra\, geometry\, physics and stat
istics\n\n\nAbstract\nI will show how we can extend the classical circle-p
requantum bundle in the case of integral symplectic manifold to any closed
2-form on any diffeological space and for any group of periods even when
the torus of period is not a circle but an irrational torus. I will discus
s the definition of the periods of the 2-form and the construction of the
generalized prequantum bundle as a quotient of the space of paths only\, w
ithout the help of an extra structure. I may give on or two singular examp
les.\n
