An Archimedean Height Pairing on the Equivalence Relation Defining Bloch's Higher Algebraic Cycle Groups


The existence of a height pairing on the equivalence relation defining Bloch's higher cycle groups is a surprising consequence of some recent joint work by myself and Xi Chen on a nontrivial K_1-class on a self-product of a general K3 surface. I will explain how this pairing comes about.
