# Invariants of projective space III: Motives

Monday, December 10th, 2012 | Author:

I want to explain a particularly easy example of a motivic cellular decomposition: That of $n$-dimensional projective space. The discussion started with cohomology (part 1), continued with bundles and cycles (part 2) and in this part 3, we discuss motivic stuff.

# Invariants of projective space II: Cycles and Bundles

I want to explain a particularly easy example of a motivic cellular decomposition: That of $n$-dimensional projective space. The discussion started with cohomology (part 1) and in this part 2, we discuss intersection-theoretic and bundle-theoretic invariants. In part 3 we will see the motivic stuff.

# Invariants of projective space I: Cohomology

Tuesday, December 04th, 2012 | Author:

I want to explain a particularly easy example of a motivic cellular decomposition: That of $n$-dimensional projective space. We will have a look at the cohomology, the Chow groups and the algebraic K-theory of projective space -- a discussion probably interesting to non-motivic people as well. After these invariants, I will look at the motive and the A¹-homotopy type. Then I want to describe the decomposition of the motive (and the homotopy type) homotopy-theoretically, by means of cofiber sequences. (We will see that projective space is not isomorphic to a coproduct of motivic spheres with the same motive). Of course, nothing is new, I'm just working out exercises here.

In this part 1, I discuss only the cohomology of $\mathbb{P}^n$. Part 2 contains a discussion of the intersection theory and bundles and part 3 contains the motivic stuff. I intentionally left out usage of projective bundle formulas, as I will discuss them separately.
