Motives

General Introduction
This should be converted into a disambiguation page. Look at what comes up on a search and reorganise this introduction, with links to all the (key) types of motives, and a brief explanation of how they fit together. Maybe the same introduction will appear in the book project.
Types of motives: Artin motives, ArtinTate motives (???), birational motives
For now we only give links to Pure motives and Mixed motives
The references and links below are in a chaos. Structure this when enough understanding.
See also Noncommutative motives

Tate conjectures
Tate's Conjecture, algebraic cycles and rational Ktheory in characteristic p, by Thomas Geisser. We discuss conjectures on motives, algebraic cycles and Ktheory of smooth projective varieties over finite fields. We give a characterization of Tate's conjecture for varieties over finite fields in terms of motives and their Frobenius endomorphism and a criterion in terms of motives for rational and numerical equivalence over finite fields to agree. This together with Tate's conjecture implies that higher rational Kgroups of smooth projective varieties over finite fields vanish (Parshin's conjecture). Parshin's conjecture in turn implies a conjecture of Beilinson and Kahn giving bounds on rational Kgroups of fields in finite characteristic. We go on to derive further corollaries.

Other Information
Voevodsky: Homology of schemes I. Discusses the moral of the notion of transfers in the introduction. One of the points seem to be that CTs are functorial wrt correspondences iff they are ordinary, i.e. come from coeffs in a complex of abelian sheaves. Another point is that the "motive" of a CW complex should be its stable homotopy type, if we by motive mean universal wrt all CTs, but if we work with ordinary theories, it should be its singular simplicial complex, as an object in the derived cat of abelian groups. More details provided.
Levine and Krishna explain some construction of homological motives, as the pseudoabelian hull of a category , in which the objects are pairs of a smooth projective variety and an integer, and there is a functor sending this object to .
