Title: A method to construct q-exponential family by representation theory

Abstract: Exponential families play an important role in the field of information geometry

and statistics. To understand only widely used "good" exponential families such

as the family of normal distributions systematically, we introduced a method

to construct exponential families on homogeneous spaces by using representation theory in [TY18].

In this talk, we consider a generalization of this method for a q-exponential family,

which is a natural generalization of an exponential family.

We give a generalization of the method under some assumptions on homogeneous spaces,

and obtain q-exponential families (1<q<2) on the upper half plane with

explicit form including the normalizing constant.

This talk is based on a joint work with Taro Yoshino.

Talk 2 (13:00 - 14:30).

Speaker: Hayate SUDA (University of Tokyo)

Title : Superdiffusion of energy in stochastic harmonic chains

Abstract: Anomalous heat transport, which means the violation of

Fourier's law, has been observed in a large number of numerical

simulations for some one-dimensional systems. Stochastic harmonic chains

has been used as microscopic models for one-dimensional heat conduction.

In this talk, we review some mathematical results about derivation of

anomalous heat transport and corresponding superdiffusion of energy

from stochastic harmonic chains.

Talk 3 (15:00 - 16:30).

Speaker: Kei KOBAYASHI (Keio University)

Title: Application of metric cones to data analysis

Abstract: First I will summarize the contents of Kobayashi and Wynn (2020) with some

small facts discovered more recently.

In the paper, we proposed a method to perform data analysis (e.g.

clustering and time series analysis) after transforming the metric of the

data space using two parameters, α and β. The transformation of the

distance by parameter α is for a length space and can be implemented

approximately by exponentially transforming the length of each edge of the

empirical graph. The distance transformation by parameter β is for a

general metric space and the transformed distance corresponds to the

extrinsic distance after embedding the data space into a metric cone. We

proved both transformations monotonically change the curvature of the data

space, but in different ways.

Second, I will report on my recent work with Daisuke Takehara for

extracting hierarchical structures of network data using metric cones.
