Applications of birational motives


I will give the definition of birational motives and explain how they can be used in various areas of algebraic geometry: counting rational points over finite fields, defining the "Tate-Shafarevich motive" of an abelian variety over a function field, shedding a new light on Roitman's theorem on torsion 0-cycles.
