R-equivalence on three-dimensional tori and zero-cycles

Alexander Merkurjev

Vol. 2 (2008), No. 1, 69–89
Abstract

We prove that the natural map T(F)R A0(X), where T is an algebraic torus over a field F of dimension at most 3, X a smooth proper geometrically irreducible variety over F containing T as an open subset and A0(X) is the group of classes of zero-dimensional cycles on X of degree zero, is an isomorphism. In particular, the group A0(X) is finite if F is finitely generated over the prime subfield, over the complex field, or over a p-adic field.

Keywords
