Accessing the big de Rham-Witt complex via algebraic cycles with a vanishing condition (English)
[ Abstract ]
The big de Rham-Witt complexes of certain good rings over a field are known to admit certain motivic descriptions, namely via cycles with a modulus condition, e.g. additive higher Chow groups. This allowed us to define the trace maps on the de Rham-Witt forms in geometric terms, for instance.
Inspired by a lemma of Kato-Saito on the class field theory and Milnor K-groups, in this talk I would introduce a recent attempt in progress, where a version of “vanishing algebraic cycles” is defined over the formal power series k[[t]]. Using these cycles, I would sketch an alternative cycle-theoretic description of the big de Rham-Witt forms.
