The Maillot–Rössler current and the polylogarithm on abelian schemes

Guido Kings and Danny Scarponi

Vol. 13 (2019), No. 2, 501–511

We give a structural proof of the fact that the realization of the degree-zero part of the polylogarithm on abelian schemes in analytic Deligne cohomology can be described in terms of the Bismut–Köhler higher analytic torsion form of the Poincaré bundle. Furthermore, we provide a new axiomatic characterization of the arithmetic Chern character of the Poincaré bundle using only invariance properties under isogenies. For this we obtain a decomposition result for the arithmetic Chow group of independent interest.
