Near-rationality properties of standard norm varieties
Lundi, 6 Février, 2023 - 14:00
Standard norm varieties played a crucial role in Voevodsky’s proof of the Bloch-Kato conjecture. I will discuss various near-rationality concepts for smooth projective varieties and describe known near-rationality results for standard norm varieties after introducing them. I will then outline an argument showing that a standard norm variety over a field of characteristic 0 is geometrically universally R-trivial. The talk is based on joint work with Chetan Balwe and Amit Hogadi.
