Ohio State University, U.S.A. Title: Monodromy / Alexander rational function of a circle valued map (details) Abstract:
Abstract: I will provide an alternative presentation of the monodromy of $(X; xiin H^1(X;mathbb Z)$ based on the linear algebra of "linear relations".This presentation is a source of new invariants derived from any homology/ cohomology type of vector valued homotopy functor. The Alexander polynomial of a knot is a particular example. 3.

INSTITUTE OF MATHEMATICS "SIMION STOILOW" OF THE ROMANIAN ACADEMY, Romania Title: (Multi)nets and monodromy (details) Abstract:
The existence of nontrivial monodromy for the comomology of the Milnor fiber F associated to a complex hyperplane arrangement seems to be connected to the existence of a symmetric structure on the intersection lattice of the arrangement. We present instances of this occurence and describe the (combinatorial) monodromy action on $H^1(F)$, in relation to AomotoBetti numbers. 4.
MAXIM Laurentiu maxim@math.wisc.edu
University of WisconsinMadison, USA Title: Motivic infinite cyclic covers (details) Abstract:
To an infinite cyclic cover of a punctured neighborhood of a simple normal crossing divisor on a complex quasiprojective manifold we associate (assuming certain finiteness conditions are satisfied) an element in the equivariant Grothendieck ring of varieties, called motivic infinite cyclic cover, which satisfies birational invariance. Our construction provides a unifying approach for the DenefLoeser motivic Milnor fibre of a complex hypersurface singularity germ, and the motivic Milnor fiber of a rational function, respectively. This is joint work with M. Gonzalez Villa and A. Libgober. 5.
NICOLAESCU Liviu lnicolae08@gmail.com
University of Notre Dame, USA Title: A stochastic GaussBonnetChern formula. (details) Abstract:
A Gaussian ensemble of smooth sections of a smooth vector bundle E determines a metric and a compatible connection on E. If the bundle is oriented, and the base manifold M is compact and oriented, then the zero locus of a random section in the ensemble is a random current in M and we prove that the expectation of this current is equal to the current determined by the Euler form associated to the above connection by the ChernWeil construction. 6.
PAUNESCU Laurentiu laurentiu.paunescu@sydney.edu.au
The University of Sydney, Australia Title: Proof of Whitney fibering conjecture (details) Abstract:
In this paper we show Whitney fibering conjecture in the real and complex, local analytic and global algebraic cases. For a given germ of complex or real analytic set, we show the existence of a stratification satisfying a strong (real arcanalytic with respect to all variables and analytic with respect to the parameter space) trivialization property along each stratum. We call such a trivialization arcwise analytic and we show that it can be constructed under the classical Zariski algebrogeometric equisingularity assumptions. Using a slightly stronger version of Zariski equisingularity, we show the existence of Whitney stratified fibration, satisfying the conditions (b) of Whitney and (w) of Verdier. Our construction is based on Puiseux with parameter theorem and a generalization of Whitney interpolation. For algebraic sets our construction gives a global stratification. 7.

Institutul de Matematica "Simion Stoilow" al Academiei Romane, Romania Title: Flat connections and resonance varieties of rank larger than 1 (details) Abstract:
A way of studying the topological and geometrical properties of a connected CWcomplex X, is to study the representation variety of the fundamental group $\pi_1(X)$ into a linear algebraic group G. The set of $\underline{g}$  valued flat connections, $\underline{g}$  being the Lie algebra of the group G, an infinitesimal version of the representation variety has a filtration by resonance varieties associated to a representation of $\underline{g}$. I present results concerning these resonance varieties of rank larger than 1. 8.
SECELEANU Alexandra aseceleanu2@unl.edu
University of NebraskaLincoln, USA Title: Symbolic powers and line arrangements (details) Abstract:
Symbolic powers of ideals play a significant part in algebraic geometry and in commutative algebra, where containment relations between symbolic powers and ordinary powers of ideals have become a focus of interest. In this talk, we consider new algebraic invariants that measure this containment. Examples will focus on the case of ideals of points arising as the singular locus of a planar line arrangement. 9.
SUCIU Alexandru a.suciu@neu.edu
Northeastern University, USA Title: Topology of complex line arrangements (details) Abstract:
I will discuss some recent advances in our understanding of the relationship between the topology, group theory, and combinatorics of an arrangement of lines in the complex plane. 10.
TIBAR Mihai tibar@math.univlille1.fr
UniversitÃ© de Lille 1, France Title: Topology of real polynomial maps (details) Abstract:
The topology of fibres of a real polynomial function may change due to the behavior at infinity. We focus on the detection of those fibres which are asymptotically atypical.
