Title: Complex/CR duality (?)—Volume Renormalization and Invariant Geometric Equations Abstract: Inspired by submanifold observables in AdS/CFT correspondence, we consider volume renormalization of surfaces or hypersurfaces with boundary curves or surfaces in possible complex/CR duality. Precisely I will talk about biholomorphically invariant curves and surfaces on the boundary of a strongly pseudoconvex domain in C^2. A distinguished class of such invariant curves satisfies a system of 2nd order ODEs, called chains in CR geometry. We interpret chains as geodesics of a Kropina metric in Finsler geometry. The associated energy functional of a curve on the boundary can be recovered as the log term coefficient in a weighted renormalized area expansion of a minimal surface that it bounds inside the domain. For surfaces on the boundary, we express two CR invariant surface area elements in terms of quantities in pseudohermitian geometry. We deduce the EulerLagrange equations of the associated energy functionals. In relation to the singular CR Yamabe problem, we show that one of the energy functionals appears as the coefficient (up to a constant multiple) of the log term in the associated volume renormalization. We ask how these “CR Willmore” surfaces are related to geometric quantities inside the domain.

Title: The Filtration of Nehari Manifold and Its Application in Some Nonlocal Problems Abstract:SchrodingerPoisson system, also known as the nonlinear SchrodingerMaxwell equations, is suggested as a model describing the interaction of a charged particle with the electrostatic field in quantum mechanics. In this talk, by introducing a new set, which is regarded as the filtration of the Nehari manifold, and together with variational methods, we are concerned with the existence of positive solution for a class of nonautonomous SchrodingerPoisson systems without any symmetry assumptions. Furthermore，the existence of ground state solution is also obtained.

Title: On Global Weak Solutions of NavierStokes Equations with NonDecaying Initial Data Abstract:We consider the Cauchy problem of 3D incompressible NavierStokes equations with uniformly locally square integrable initial data. If the square integral of the initial data on a ball vanishes as the ball goes to infinity, the existence of global weak solutions has been known. However, such data do not include constants, and the only results for nondecaying data are either for perturbations of constants, or when the velocity gradients are in L^p. We construct global weak solutions for nondecaying initial data whose local oscillations decay.
