On the Rost divisibility of henselian discrete valuation fields of cohomological dimension 3

Yong Hu and Zhengyao Wu

Vol. 5 (2020), No. 4, 677–707

Let F be a field, a prime and D a central division F-algebra of -power degree. By the Rost kernel of D we mean the subgroup of F consisting of elements λ such that the cohomology class (D) (λ) H3(F, (2)) vanishes. In  1985, Suslin conjectured that the Rost kernel is generated by i-th powers of reduced norms from Di for all i 1. Despite known counterexamples, we prove some new special cases of Suslin’s conjecture. We assume F is a henselian discrete valuation field with residue field k of characteristic different from . When D has period , we show that Suslin’s conjecture holds if either k is a 2-local field or the cohomological -dimension cd(k) of k is 2. When the period is arbitrary, we prove the same result when k itself is a henselian discrete valuation field with cd(k) 2. In the case = char(k), an analog is obtained for tamely ramified algebras. We conjecture that Suslin’s conjecture holds for all fields of cohomological dimension 3.
