Equivariant pretheories and invariants of torsors


Abstract:We will introduce and study the notion of an equivariant pretheory. Basic examples include equivariant Chow groups, equivariant K-theory and equivariant algebraic cobordism. As an application we generalize the theorem of Karpenko-Merkurjev on G-torsors and rational cycles; to every G-torsor E and a G-equivariant pretheory we associate a graded ring which serves as an invariant of E. In the case of Chow groups this ring encodes the information concerning the motivic J-invariant of E and in the case of Grothendieck's K_0 -- indexes of the respective Tits algebras.
