Title: Motives and Galois theory
Speaker: Professor Madhav Nori
Speaker Info: University of Chicago
Madhav Nori will explain to us his definition of mixed motives for subfields of the complex number field. This definition interpolates between V. Voevodsky's definition, which captures the aspect of theories exhibiting functoriality with respect to finite correspondences, and M. Levine's theory, which is universal with respect to the axioms of a Bloch-Ogus cohomology theory.Date: Tuesday, November 18, 2003
It is interesting, in particular, how the notion of a motivic fundamental group evolves in this set-up.
