Pure Maths Colloquium: Torsion in the Chow Group

Presented by "Chad Schoen (Duke University, Durham, USA)",

13 June 2002 00:00 in CM221

" Chow groups are invariants of algebraic varieties which generalize the classical notion of the Jacobian of a curve. In the first part
of this lecture Chow groups will be defined, their most elementary functorial properties will be stated, and an application to a basic
question in algebraic geometry will be illustrated by an example. The second part of the lecture will summarize known results about
the torsion subgroups of Chow groups and will touch upon recent progress and open problems."
