Special session of the seminar in Paris on June 17 & 18, 2024. 
Monday June 17 (couloir 15-25, salle 104)
11am: Qizheng Yin: Cohomological and motivic aspects of compactified Jacobian fibrations
Abstract: Beauville showed using Fourier transforms that the Chow ring/motive of an abelian variety admits a natural, multiplicative decomposition. I will explain how Beauville’s theory can be extended to certain abelian fibrations with singular fibers. One notable consequence of this extension is a proof of the P=W conjecture in nonabelian Hodge theory. In the second half of my talk I will focus on aspects beyond P=W and discuss some related open questions. Joint work in progress with Davesh Maulik and Junliang Shen.
2pm Giulia Saccà: Compactification of Lagrangian fibrations

Abstract: Lagrangian fibered Hyper-Kähler manifolds are the natural generalization of elliptic K3 surfaces
and have been used to study and construct examples of compact Hyper-K\"ahler manifolds and
(possibly singular) symplectic varieties. In this talk I will talk about some compactification techniques for
quasi-projective Lagrangian fibrations, with applications to the study of Prym, Intermediate Jacobian,
Albanese, dual fibrations etc.
4pm Zhi Jiang: Severi type inequalities and equalities

Abstract: Barja,Pardini,and Stoppino introduced continuous rank functions on varieties of maximal Albanese dimension around 2015 and they applied these functions to improve Severi type inequalities and characterized partially varieties on the Severi line. Together with G. Pareschi, we extended the construction of continuous rank functions to get cohomological rank functions on Abelian varieties and get precise local polynomial expressions of these functions.
In this talk, we explain that the precise expression can be used to understand the structures of irregular surfaces with small birational invariants or on another Severi line. This talk is based on a joint work in progress with Hsueh-Yung Lin.
Tuesday June 18 (couloir 15-25, salle 104)
9:30 am: Phil Engel: Torelli for a class of elliptic surfaces
Abstract: ​I will discuss a proof that the period mapping is dominant for elliptic surfaces over an elliptic curve with 12 nodal fibers, but that its degree is larger than 1. This is joint work with Francois Greer and Abigail Ward. 
11am: Giovanni Mongardi: General type surfaces of K3 type and HK manifolds
Abstract: Some Fano fourfolds of K3 type have natural conic fibrations, whose discriminant 
locus has a double cover of general type. The antiinvariant cohomology of this surfaces carries a natural Hodge
structure, corresponding to the K3 structure of the Fano fourfold. In a work in collaboration with Bernardara,
Fatighenti, G. Kapustka, M. Kapustka,  Manivel and Tanturri, we prove that in the case of Gushel-Mukai
fourfolds, the discriminant double covers can be described a sections of HK manifolds with an anti-symplectic
2pm: Susanna Zimmermann: Algebraic groups acting on fibrations
Abstract: What algebraic groups act birationally and faithfully on a projective space? In dimension 2 and 3, 
every such group is contained in a maximal such group (with respect to inclusion). I will explain why this
no longer holds in dimension 5 and higher. This is a collaboration with A. Fanelli and E. Floris.

End of semester celebration

Special session of the seminar in Paris on June 14 & 15. 
Wednesday June 14 (couloir 15-16, salle 413)
2pm: Paolo Stellari: Deformations of stability conditions with applications to Hilbert schemes of points and very general abelian varieties

Abstract: The construction of stability conditions on the bounded derived category of coherent sheaves on smooth projective varieties is
notoriously a difficult problem, especially when the canonical bundle is trivial. In this talk, I will illustrate a new and very effective  technique based on deformations. A key ingredient is a general result about deformations of bounded t-structures (and with some additional and mild assumptions). Two remarkable applications a
re the  construction of stability conditions for very general abelian varieties in any dimension and for some irreducible holomorphic symplectic manifolds, again in all possible dimensions. This is joint  work with C. Li, E. Macri' and X. Zhao.
4pm: Martí Lahoz: Cohomological rank functions on abelian surfaces via Bridgeland stability
Abstract: In the context of polarized abelian varieties, Zhi Jiang and Giuseppe Pareschi have introduced the cohomological rank functions associated to a (complex of) coherent sheaves. These functions are closely related to the continuous rank functions introduced previously by Miguel Angel Barja, and studied together with Rita Pardini and Lidia Stoppino in the context of irregular varieties. I will present joint work with Andrés Rojas that show that, in the case of abelian surfaces, Bridgeland stability provides an alternative description of the cohomological rank functions. This helps to understand their general structure, and allows to compute geometrically meaningful examples. I will illustrate the potential of this reinterpretation by presenting new results on syzygies of abelian surfaces proven by Andrés Rojas.
Thursday June 15 (couloir 15-16, salle 101)
9:30 am: Alexander Kuznetsov: Hilbert schemes of quadrics on Gushel-Mukai varieties
Abstract: In the talk I will explain the general structure of Hilbert schemes of quadrics (of dimension 0, 1, and 2) on smooth Gushel-Mukai varieties (of dimension 2 \le n \le 6), and some explicit examples of these schemes. This is a joint work in progress with Olivier Debarre.
11 am: Justin Sawon: Lagrangian fibrations in four dimensions
Abstract: We consider Lagrangian fibrations by abelian surfaces over the complex projective plane, with total space holomorphic symplectic manifolds and orbifolds. There are examples whose fibres are (1,d) polarized for d=1 to 4. We recall some classification results of Markushevich and Kamenova in the principally polarized case, and a new classification result in the (1,2) polarized case (joint work with Xuqiang Qin). We also describe restrictions on the polarization; indeed, `most' polarizations are not possible.
Thursday June 15 (couloir 15-25, salle 502) Séminaire de Géométrie algébrique
2pm: Mirko MauriRemarks on the topology of hyperkähler varieties
Abstract: The Nagai conjecture and the SYZ conjecture concern respectively the geometry of degenerations and fibrations of hyperkähler varieties. In this talk I will explore some topological consequences of these conjectures. This is an account on a joint project with Daniel Huybrechts and an on-going project with Stefano Filipazzi and Roberto Svaldi.

 E. Shinder (14:00, ENS, salle W): Motivic invariants of birational maps
Abstract: I explain how exceptional divisors of birational maps can be assembled into invariants taking values in the Grothendieck ring of varieties and in the Kontsevich-Tschinkel ring. Using these invariants we prove new results about the structure of the groups of birational isomorphisms; in particular, we prove that various Cremona groups are not generated by regularizable elements. This is joint work with Hsueh-Yung Lin.
Rui-jie Yang (16:00, ENS, salle W): The Riemann-Schottky problem via singularities of theta divisors

Abstract: The Riemann-Schottky problem is the problem of determining which principally polarized abelian varieties (PPAV) arise as Jacobians of curves. Riemann showed that the theta divisor on the Jacobian of a hyperelliptic curve has singularity of codimension three. A hundred years later, Debarre conjectured that any irreducible PPAV with such property must come from hyperelliptic curves. In this talk, I will discuss a refinement of this conjecture by Casalaina-Martin and provide a partial solution. To achieve this, we develop a complete theory of higher multiplier ideals for Q-divisors, using Sabbah-Schnell's theory of complex Hodge modules. This is joint work with Christian Schnell.
Alessio Bottini (10:00, Jussieu, salle 411, 15-16): Towards a modular construction of OG10
Abstract: Moduli spaces of sheaves on holomorphic symplectic surfaces are examples of hyper-Kähler manifolds. Sheaves on higher dimensional hyper-Kähler manifolds have proven much more difficult to study, although it is believed that their moduli spaces could lead to new examples. Recently, the introduction of modular and atomic sheaves has lead to developments in this subject. They are special classes of sheaves on hyper-Kähler manifolds with beautiful properties, and they make good candidates to have well-behaved moduli spaces. In this talk, I will go over these notions and give the first example of a non-rigid atomic stable bundle on a hyper-Kähler fourfold whose moduli space is birational to OG10.
Gianluca Pacienza (11:00, Jussieu, salle 411, 15-16): On the cone conjecture for Enriques manifolds. 

Abstract: Enriques manifolds are non simply connected manifolds whose universal cover is irreducible holomorphic symplectic, and as such they are natural generalizations of Enriques surfaces. In this talk I will report on a joint work in progress with Alessandra Sarti in which  we study the Morrison-Kawamata cone conjecture for such manifolds using the analogous result (established by Amerik-Verbitsky) for their universal cover.
