On the motivic class of an algebraic group

Federico Scavia

Vol. 14 (2020), No. 4, 855–866
Abstract

Let F be a field of characteristic zero admitting a biquadratic field extension. We give an example of a torus G over F whose classifying stack BG is stably rational and such that {BG}{G}1 in the Grothendieck ring of algebraic stacks over F. We also give an example of a finite étale group scheme A over F such that BA is stably rational and {BA}1.
