A classical theorem due to Birkhoff states that on a real or a complex symplectic manifold a function near its Morse critical point can be transformed by formal symplectomorphism into a power series in the pairwise sums of squares of the local coordinates, called its "Birkhoff normal form". A result of Sjöstrand says that, given certain conditions, one can compute the eigenvalues of the Schrödinger operator using a quantum version of this normal form. In my talk, I will explain how to interpret the quantum Birkhoff normal form geometrically by relating it to the quantization of integrable systems and to formal deformations of the variation of Hodge structures. This is joint work in progress with Maxim Kontsevich.

      Anosov representations, Hodge theory, and Lyapunov exponents

      AbstractDiscrete subgroups of semisimple Lie groups arise in a variety of contexts, sometimes "in nature" as monodromy groups of families of algebraic manifolds, and other times in relation to geometric structures and associated dynamical systems. I will discuss a class of such discrete subgroups that arise from certain variations of Hodge structure and lead to Anosov representations, thus rela...

      Quadratic conductor formulas for motivic spectra

      AbstractWe use the machinery of A1-homotopy theory to study the geometric ramification theory. We define the quadratic Artin conductor for a motivic spectrum on a smooth proper curve and obtain a quadratic refinement of the classical Grothendieck-Ogg-Shafarevich formula. Then we use the non-acyclicity class to formulate a quadratic conductor formula. In some sense, we obtain a quadratic version...
