Toric Degenerations and Laurent polynomials related to Givental's LandauGinzburg models
For an appropriate class of Fano complete intersections in toric
varieties, we prove that there is a concrete relationship between
degenerations to specific toric subvarieties and expressions
for Givental's LandauGinzburg models as Laurent polynomials.
As a result, we show that Fano varieties presented as complete
intersections in partial flag manifolds admit degenerations to
Gorenstein toric weak Fano varieties, and their Givental LandauGinzburg
models can be expressed as corresponding Laurent polynomials.
We also use this to show that all of the Laurent polynomials
obtained by Coates, Kasprzyk and Prince by the so called Przyjalkowski
method correspond to toric degenerations of the corresponding
Fano variety. We discuss applications to geometric transitions
of CalabiYau varieties.

On K3 surface quotients of K3 or Abelian surfaces
The aim of this paper is to prove that a K3 surface is the minimal
model of the quotient of an Abelian surface by a group $G$ (respectively
of a K3 surface by an Abelian group $G$) if and only if a certain
lattice is primitively embedded in its NÃ©ronSeveri group.
This allows one to describe the coarse moduli space of the K3
surfaces which are (rationally) $G$covered by Abelian or K3
surfaces (in the latter case $G$ is an Abelian group).
If either $G$ has order 2 or $G$ is cyclic and acts on an Abelian
surface, this result was already known, so we extend it to the
other cases.
Moreover, we prove that a K3 surface $X_G$ is the minimal model
of the quotient of an Abelian surface by a group $G$ if and only
if a certain configuration of rational curves is present on $X_G$.
Again this result was known only in some special cases, in particular
if $G$ has order 2 or 3.

Strongly Incompressible Curves
Let $G$ be a finite group. A faithful $G$variety $X$ is called
strongly incompressible if every dominant $G$equivariant rational
map of $X$ onto another faithful $G$variety $Y$ is birational.
We settle the problem of existence of strongly incompressible
$G$curves for any finite group $G$ and any base field $k$ of
characteristic zero.

Singular $G$Monopoles on $S^1\times \Sigma$
This article provides an account of the functorial correspondence
between irreducible singular $G$monopoles on $S^1\times \Sigma$
and $\vec{t}$stable meromorphic pairs on $\Sigma$.
A theorem of B. Charbonneau and J. Hurtubise
is thus generalized here from unitary to arbitrary
compact, connected gauge groups. The required distinctions and
similarities for unitary versus arbitrary gauge are clearly outlined
and many parallels are drawn for easy transition. Once the correspondence
theorem is complete, the spectral decomposition is addressed.

Optimal quotients of Jacobians with toric reduction and component groups
Let $J$ be a Jacobian variety with toric reduction
over a local field $K$.
Let $J \to E$ be an optimal quotient defined over $K$, where
$E$ is an elliptic curve.
We give examples in which the functorially induced map $\Phi_J
\to \Phi_E$
on component groups of the NÃ©ron models is not surjective.
This answers a question of Ribet and Takahashi.
We also give various criteria under which $\Phi_J \to \Phi_E$
is surjective, and discuss
when these criteria hold for the Jacobians of modular curves.

Frobenius Distribution for Quotients of Fermat Curves of Prime Exponent
Let $\mathcal{C}$ denote the Fermat curve over $\mathbb{Q}$ of prime
exponent $\ell$. The Jacobian $\operatorname{Jac}(\mathcal{C})$
of~$\mathcal{C}$ splits over $\mathbb{Q}$ as the product of Jacobians
$\operatorname{Jac}(\mathcal{C}_k)$, $1\leq k\leq \ell2$, where
$\mathcal{C}_k$ are curves obtained as quotients of $\mathcal{C}$ by
certain subgroups of automorphisms of $\mathcal{C}$. It is well known
that $\operatorname{Jac}(\mathcal{C}_k)$ is the power of an absolutely
simple abelian variety $B_k$ with complex multiplication. We call
degenerate those pairs $(\ell,k)$ for which $B_k$ has degenerate CM
type. For a nondegenerate pair $(\ell,k)$, we compute the SatoTate
group of $\operatorname{Jac}(\mathcal{C}_k)$, prove the generalized
SatoTate Conjecture for it, and give an explicit method to compute
the moments and measures of the involved distributions. Regardless of
$(\ell,k)$ being degenerate or not, we also obtain Frobenius
equidistribution results for primes of certain residue degrees in the
$\ell$th cyclotomic field. Key to our results is a detailed study of
the rank of certain generalized Demjanenko matrices.

Arithmetic of Degenerating Principal Variations of Hodge Structure: Examples Arising from Mirror Symmetry and Middle Convolution
We collect evidence in support of a conjecture of Griffiths,
Green
and Kerr
on the arithmetic of extension classes of
limiting
mixed Hodge structures arising from semistable degenerations
over
a number field. After briefly summarizing how a result of Iritani
implies this conjecture for a collection of hypergeometric
CalabiYau threefold examples studied by Doran and Morgan,
the authors investigate a sequence of (nonhypergeometric) examples
in dimensions $1\leq d\leq6$ arising from Katz's theory of the
middle
convolution.
A crucial role is played by the MumfordTate
group (which is $G_{2}$) of the family of 6folds, and the theory
of boundary components of MumfordTate domains.

On Rational Equivalence in Tropical Geometry
This article discusses the concept of rational equivalence
in tropical
geometry
(and replaces an older and imperfect version).
We give the basic definitions in the context of tropical varieties
without boundary points and prove some basic properties.
We then compute the ``bounded'' Chow groups of $\mathbb{R}^n$ by showing
that they are isomorphic
to the group of fan cycles. The main step in the proof is of
independent interest:
We show that every tropical cycle in $\mathbb{R}^n$ is a sum of (translated)
fan cycles. This also
proves that the intersection ring of tropical cycles is generated
in codimension 1 (by hypersurfaces).

Onedimensional Schubert problems with respect to osculating flags
We consider Schubert problems with respect to flags osculating
the rational normal curve. These problems are of special interest
when the osculation points are all real  in this case, for
zerodimensional Schubert problems, the solutions are "as real
as possible". Recent work by Speyer has extended the theory
to the moduli space
$
\overline{\mathcal{M}_{0,r}}
$,
allowing the points to collide.
These give rise to smooth covers of
$
\overline{\mathcal{M}_{0,r}}
(\mathbb{R})
$, with structure
and monodromy described by Young tableaux and jeu de taquin.
In this paper, we give analogous results on onedimensional Schubert
problems over
$
\overline{\mathcal{M}_{0,r}}
$.
Their (real) geometry turns out to
be described by orbits of SchÃ¼tzenberger promotion and a
related operation involving tableau evacuation. Over
$\mathcal{M}_{0,r}$,
our results show that the real points of the solution curves
are smooth.
We also find a new identity involving "firstorder" Ktheoretic
LittlewoodRichardson coefficients, for which there does not
appear to be a known combinatorial proof.

Kernels in the Category of Formal Group Laws
Fontaine described the category of formal groups over the ring
of Witt vectors over a finite field
of characteristic $p$ with the aid of triples consisting of the
module of logarithms,
the DieudonnÃ© module and the morphism from the former to the
latter. We propose
an explicit construction for the kernels in this category in
term of Fontaine's triples.
The construction is applied to the formal norm homomorphism in
the case of an unramified extension
of $\mathbb{Q}_p$ and of a totally ramified extension of degree less
or equal than $p$. A similar
consideration applied to a global extension allows us to establish
the existence of a strict
isomorphism between the formal norm torus and a formal group
law coming from $L$series.

Orthogonal Bundles and SkewHamiltonian Matrices
Using properties of skewHamiltonian matrices and classic
connectedness results, we prove that the moduli space
$M_{ort}^0(r,n)$ of stable rank $r$ orthogonal vector bundles
on $\mathbb{P}^2$, with Chern classes $(c_1,c_2)=(0,n)$, and trivial
splitting on the general line, is smooth irreducible of
dimension $(r2)n\binom{r}{2}$ for $r=n$ and $n \ge 4$, and
$r=n1$ and $n\ge 8$. We speculate that the result holds in
greater generality.

Chern Classes of Splayed Intersections
We generalize the Chern class relation for the transversal intersection
of two nonsingular
varieties to a relation for possibly singular varieties, under
a splayedness assumption.
We show that the relation for the ChernSchwartzMacPherson classes
holds for two splayed hypersurfaces in a nonsingular variety,
and under a `strong splayedness' assumption for more
general subschemes. Moreover, the relation is shown to hold for
the ChernFulton classes
of any two splayed subschemes.
The main tool is a formula for Segre classes of splayed
subschemes. We also discuss the Chern class relation under the
assumption that one of the
varieties is a general very ample divisor.

Abelian Surfaces with an Automorphism and Quaternionic Multiplication
We construct one dimensional families of Abelian surfaces with
quaternionic multiplication
which also have an automorphism of order three or four. Using Barth's
description of the moduli space of $(2,4)$polarized Abelian surfaces,
we find the Shimura curve parametrizing these Abelian surfaces in a
specific case.
We explicitly relate these surfaces to the Jacobians of genus two
curves studied by Hashimoto and Murabayashi.
We also describe a (Humbert) surface in Barth's moduli space which
parametrizes Abelian surfaces with real multiplication by
$\mathbf{Z}[\sqrt{2}]$.

This paper is concerned with suitable generalizations of a plane de

$\mathbb{P}^n$ with $n\geq 3$.
For each given point of $\mathbb{P}^n$ there is a subgroup of the entire
Cremona group of dimension $n$

One studies both geometric and grouptheoretical properties of this notion.
In the case where $n=3$ one describes an explicit set of generators of
the group and gives a homological characterization
of a basic subgroup thereof.

Obstructions to Approximating Tropical Curves in Surfaces Via Intersection Theory
We provide some new local obstructions to
approximating
tropical curves in
smooth tropical surfaces. These obstructions are based on
a
relation between tropical and complex intersection theories which is
also established here. We give
two applications of the methods developed in this paper.
First we classify all locally irreducible approximable 3valent fan tropical
curves in a
fan tropical plane.
Secondly, we prove that a generic nonsingular
tropical surface
in tropical projective 3space contains finitely
many approximable tropical lines
if
it is of degree 3, and contains no approximable tropical lines if
it is of degree 4 or more.

$p$adic and Motivic Measure on Artin $n$stacks
We define a notion of $p$adic measure on Artin $n$stacks which are
of strongly finite type over the ring of $p$adic integers. $p$adic
measure on schemes can be evaluated by counting points on the
reduction of the scheme modulo $p^n$. We show that an analogous
construction works in the case of Artin stacks as well if we count the
points using the counting measure defined by ToÃ«n. As a consequence,
we obtain the result that the PoincarÃ© and Serre series of such
stacks are rational functions, thus extending Denef's result for
varieties. Finally, using motivic integration we show that as $p$
varies, the rationality of the Serre series of an Artin stack defined
over the integers is uniform with respect to $p$.

Faithfulness of Actions on RiemannRoch Spaces
Given a faithful action of a finite group $G$ on an algebraic
curve~$X$ of genus $g_X\geq 2$, we give explicit criteria for
the induced action of~$G$ on the RiemannRoch space~$H^0(X,\mathcal{O}_X(D))$
to be faithful, where $D$ is a $G$invariant divisor on $X$ of
degree at least~$2g_X2$. This leads to a concise answer to the
question when the action of~$G$ on the space~$H^0(X, \Omega_X^{\otimes
m})$ of global holomorphic polydifferentials of order $m$ is
faithful. If $X$ is hyperelliptic, we furthermore provide an
explicit basis of~$H^0(X, \Omega_X^{\otimes m})$. Finally, we
give applications in deformation theory and in coding theory
and we discuss the analogous problem for the action of~$G$ on
the first homology $H_1(X, \mathbb{Z}/m\mathbb{Z})$ if $X$ is a Riemann surface.

On Varieties of Lie Algebras of Maximal Class
We study complex projective varieties that parametrize
(finitedimensional) filiform Lie algebras over ${\mathbb C}$,
using equations derived by Millionshchikov. In the
infinitedimensional case we concentrate our attention on
${\mathbb N}$graded Lie algebras of maximal class. As shown by A.
Fialowski
there are only
three isomorphism types of $\mathbb{N}$graded Lie algebras
$L=\oplus^{\infty}_{i=1} L_i$ of maximal class generated by $L_1$
and $L_2$, $L=\langle L_1, L_2 \rangle$. Vergne described the
structure of these algebras with the property $L=\langle L_1
\rangle$. In this paper we study those generated by the first and
$q$th components where $q\gt 2$, $L=\langle L_1, L_q \rangle$. Under
some technical condition, there can only be one isomorphism type
of such algebras. For $q=3$ we fully classify them. This gives a
partial answer to a question posed by Millionshchikov.
