Rost nilpotence for surfaces


Abstract:Let X be a smooth projective scheme over a field F. We say that Rost nilpotence is true for X in the category of Chow motives with integral coefficients if for any field extension E/F the kernel ofCH_2(S x S)  --> CH_2(S_E x S_E)consists of nilpotent correspondences. In my talk I will present a proof of Rost nilpotence for surfaces over fields of characteristic zero which uses Rost's theory of cycle modules.
