arXiv:1102.3622 Koszul duality of the category of trees and bar construction for operads from arXiv Front: math.CT by Muriel Livernet In this paper we study a category of trees TI and prove that it is a Koszul category. Consequences are the interpretation of the reduced bar construction of operads of Ginzburg and Kapranov as the Koszul complex of this category, and the interpretation of operads up to homotopy as a functor from the minimal resolution of TI to the category of graded vector spaces. We compare also three different bar constructions of operads. Two of them have already been compared by Shnider-Von Osdol and Fresse.

Base change theoremsWrite comment View comments

Proper base change: For non-torsion sheaves, see Deninger article

Ayoub has general theorems which should specialize under realizations.

There should be some conceptual understanding of the duality between smooth and proper. Ask at MO maybe after reading SGA and Ayoub. This should explain the Hodge triangles of Deligne, and Tony's question.

There are some general ideas related to passing from characteristic zero to characteristic p, maybe via special fibers of something over a DVR. Some of this is hinted at here: This is related to base change, maybe, and should allow for comparison between Betti numbers of different kinds.

Understand when the height pairing comes into the picture.

Schneider gives refs to three independent constructions of the height pairing: Beilinson, Bloch, and GS: Intersection sur les varieties d'Arakelov (C R Acad 299, 563-566 (1984) )

Beilinson conjectures KEY IDEASWrite comment View comments

What kind of geometric object do the conjectures talk about really? Even in the classical formulation, we always need to take motivic cohomology of an integral model. Scholbach's thesis, discussion of motives over Z in old and new sense. Why not just work with schemes over Z? (However, note that Scholbach can spread out a motive over Q)

Periods: Do we need to mention Kontsevich-Zagier???

Beilinson ideas on compatifying Z, various cohomology functors (maybe ass. to primes??), Arakelov motives, l.e.s. involving regulator.

Possibly mention arithmetic Chow groups, and the idea of covolume being the actual special value.

Beilinson conjectures MOTIVES AND CT NOTIONSWrite comment View comments

Cover: - Pure - Ab. mixed - Triang. mixed - CTs: generalized/ordinary, geom/absolute. - Various constructions of motives, including realizations. - Explain first the dream, and then what is known. For example, explain why we cannot prove nice properties of pure motives, but we can define them. - Try to clarify whether we really need abelian mixed motives.

Scholl-Deninger section 2.9 explains how Deligne cohomology in a certain index range is isomorphic to a certain Ext^1 group in the cat of R-mixed Hodge structure with the action of a real Frobenius. (From this one would guess that Bette-Deligne is a geometric-absolute pair. Have working defs for MMQ and MMZ in terms of realizations, ref to Deligne: La groupe fondamental..., Scholl: Remarks on special values of L-functions, and LNM1400. For such motives get maps to Ext groups also for motivic cohomology, these are conjecturally isos. Some more details about this picture.

Expected dimension of cats of motives: This I believe is 1 (or 2??) for number fields, which maybe explains the form of the order of vanishing conjecture according to Kim, i.e. it's an "Euler char" but only 2 terms can possibly contribute.

Is it possible to say that a geometric-absolute pair is associated to every completion of a number field? Is this correct? The mystery is really de Rham-Betti-Deligne-absolute Hodge...

Relate the idea of oriented theories to Gillet's construction, for which the requirements are products, projective bundle thm, and weak Gysin.

Note: Motivic cohomology should be Mathematical formula in the bounded derived cat of mixed motives, according to Jannsen. Here R is the functor from correspondences to the derived cat of mixed motives.

Jannsen end of p 285: Expectation that the cohomological dimension of mixed motives over a field is the Kronecker dimension of the field, so 1 in the global field case. and 0 for finite fields.

There is some discussion of the "integral part" of motivic cohomology in Bondarko's weights paper:

Beilinson conjectures PROOF IDEASWrite comment View comments

Eisenstein symbol: See Deninger-Scholl section 4 and the imimediate stuff preceeding. This symbol is a certain "universal construction of elements of motivic cohomology of an elliptic curve, or a self-product of an elliptic curve. This looks really cool, there is some theorem by Beilinson about the regulator in this case. Some key concepts: Kuga-Sato var, a certain residue map from motivic cohomology, which is surjective by Beilinson's thm, the Eisenstein symbol being the inverse. Also L-functions of modular forms, and something about their associated motives, and stuff about critical points where everything is reduced to Deligne's conj, already proven in this case. More: L-functions of algebraic Hecke characters, giving results on Beilinson conj for certain Dirichlet characters and CM elliptic curves of Shimura type. Again rel to Deligne conj. Many references, comprehensive survey.

Beilinson conjectures QUESTIONSWrite comment View comments

Relation between zeta and L-functions, see Kim's notes. Partial answer (Kim): We don't have a good canonical def of the complete zeta function. Example for elliptic curve of partial zeta vs partial L-function. In this case, have recipe for bad factors, and also a canonical model, both give same answers. Agreement between etale cohomology of fiber of good model with inertia fixed points of of the thing / Q.

Can we ever hope to prove FE by some form of PD?? What is the analogue in the function field case?

Why not state the conjecture in terms of schemes over Z rather than varieties? We need to assume regular model anyway, right??

arXiv:0909.3002 On the regulator of Fermat motives and generalized hypergeometric functions from arXiv Front: math.AG by Noriyuki Otsubo We calculate the Beilinson regulators of motives associated to Fermat curves and express them by special values of generalized hypergeometric functions. As a result, we obtain surjectivity results of the regulator, which support the Beilinson conjecture on special values of L-functions.

Beilinson conjectures SPECIAL VALUES STATEMENTSWrite comment View comments

Scholl-Den start of section 3.

One can formulate a weaker conjecture by simply replacing the subscript Z motivic cohomology by an unspecified subspace.

Kim on p 13 says that the general conjecture about orders of vanishing is expressed in terms of a conjectural cat of mixed motives over Z, as dim Ext1 - dim Hom. Kim in general has a very nice structure on his overview, explaining what happens the central, near-central points etc, and explaining the rational and transcendental terms. He says the conceptual structure falls into two parts: Relations between and L-functions and Ext groups in cats of motives, and geometric interpretation of these Ext groups.

There is a formulation in Schneider.

Beilinson regulatorWrite comment View comments

S Saito and Asakura: Maximal components etc. review

Various defs of motivic cohomology: K-theory, analogous to Atiyah (see Atiyah: K-theory). Higher Chow groups. Voevodsky's complexes. Suslin-Friedlander??? Homotopical def.

Scholl and Deninger defines motivic cohomology with rational coeffs and Z subscript as the just the motivic cohomology for q>p, and as the image of motivic cohomology of a proper regular model. Conjecturally this is equiv to defining it in the latter way for all p,q.

Deligne cohomology should be interpreted as Exts in a cat of mixed Hodge structures (see Scholl-Den section 2.9)

Deligne cohomology relates to Betti and de Rham cohomology through a certain les, and also via 2 short exact sequence's. (Sch-Den p 3) so it seems like somehow we encode the period map, or some aspect of it, in the Deligne cohomology groups with Q-structure. For open varieties the naive def gives in general infinite-dimensional groups, must refine a little...

Bloch has a construction of the regulator, using higher Chow groups. This is briefly explained in Deninger-Scholl, section 2.8. Same construction works for continuous etale cohomology.

Abstract Chern class theory explained in Schneider. Relate this to oriented theories maybe.

Explain the regulator as a realization map.

The idea of defining the regulator on the level of complexes, or on the level of representing spectra.

arXiv:1209.6451 Regulators and cycle maps in higher-dimensional differential algebraic K-theory fra arXiv Front: math.KT av Ulrich Bunke, Georg Tamme We develop differential algebraic K-theory of regular and separated schemes of finite type over Spec(Z). Our approach is based on a new construction of a functorial, spectrum level Beilinson regulator using differential forms. We construct a cycle map which represents differential algebraic K-theory classes by geometric vector bundles. As an application we derive Lott's relation between short exact sequences of geometric bundles with a higher analytic torsion form.

Beilinson-Soule vanishing conjectureWrite comment View comments

Reza Akhtar - Miami University Title: The Beilinson-Soulé vanishing conjecture with finite coefficients. Abstract: The Beilinson-Soulé vanishing conjecture asserts that for any variety $X$ over a field $k$, the motivic cohomology groups $H^i(X, \mathbb{Z}(n))$ vanish for $i<0$ and any $n$. We discuss a "finite coefficients" variation on this conjecture and give an elementary proof under the hypothesis that the base field contains an algebraically closed field.

Beilinson-Tate conjectureWrite comment View comments

arXiv:0909.2670 Beilinson-Tate cycles on semiabelian varieties from arXiv Front: math.AG by Donu Arapura, Manish Kumar Along the lines of Hodge and Tate conjectures, Beilinson conjectured that in the qth cohomology all the weight 2q Hodge cycles of a smooth complex variety and all the weight 2q Tate cycles of a smooth variety over a finitely generated field comes from the higher Chow groups. For product of curves and semiabelian varieties, Beilinson-Hodge conjecture was shown in a previous paper by the authors. Here both Beilinson-Hodge and Beilinson-Tate conjectures are shown to be true for varieties dominated by product of curves. We also show that lower weight Hodge cycles (resp. Tate cycles) are algebraic in these situations.

In this paper we study the Neron S-class group C{A,F,S} of an abelian variety A defined over F. In the well-known analogy that exists between the Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture for A over F and Dirichlet's analytic class number formula for the field F (in the number field case), the finite group C{A,F,S'} (not the Tate-Shafarevich group of A) is a natural analog of the ideal class group of F.

A general method, based on a new construction called the twisted Brauer space, is given for classifying etale twists, and a complete classification is carried out for genus 0 curves, quadrics, and noncommutative projective spaces. A partial classification is given for curves of higher genus. The techniques build upon my recent work with David Gepner on the Brauer groups of commutative ring spectra.

arXiv:1210.0290 Brauer groups and étale cohomology in derived algebraic geometry fra arXiv Front: math.AG av Benjamin Antieau, David Gepner In this paper, we study Azumaya algebras and Brauer groups in derived algebraic geometry. We establish various fundamental facts about Brauer groups in this setting, and we provide a computational tool, which we use to compute the Brauer group in several examples. In particular, we show that the Brauer group of the sphere spectrum vanishes, and we use this to prove two uniqueness theorems for the stable homotopy category. Our key technical results include the local geometricity, in the sense of Artin n-stacks, of the moduli space of perfect modules over a smooth and proper algebra, the étale local triviality of Azumaya algebras over connective derived schemes, and a local to global principle for the algebraicity of stacks of stable categories.

arXiv:0912.3786 Cech approximation to the Brown-Gersten spectral sequence from arXiv Front: math.KT by Benjamin Antieau In this paper, we show that the etale index of a torsion cohomological Brauer class is divisible by the period of the class. The tool used to make this computation is the Cech approximation of the title. To create the approximation, we use the folklore theorem that the homotopy limit and Postnikov spectral sequences for a cosimplicial space agree beginning with the E2-page. As far we know, this folklore theorem has no proof in the literature, so we include a proof.
