14:00 Manh Toan Nguyen: Equivariant motivic cohomology

Abstract: Motivic cohomology for smooth schemes over a field is now a well-established theory. This led to the solution to the Milnor-Bloch-Kato conjecture by Voevodsky and Rost. At present, the corresponding equivariant theory is developing and attracting many attentions.

In this talk, I will discuss about two constructions of motivic cohomology for algebraic varieties over a field equipped with an action of a finite group: one is given by Levine-Serpé in terms of equivariant cycles and the other, follows an idea of Grayson, is in terms of the K-theory of equivariant automorphisms. I will also explain how these objects relate to each other as well as to other interesting theories such as orbifold Chow ring and equivariant algebraic K-theory.
