On the coniveau of rationally connected threefolds

Abstract

We prove that the integral cohomology modulo torsion of a rationally connected threefold comes from the integral cohomology of a smooth curve via the cylinder homomorphism associated to a family of 1–cycles. Equivalently, it is of strong coniveau 1. More generally, for a rationally connected manifold X of dimension n, we show that the strong coniveau Ñn2H2n3(X, ) and coniveau Nn2H2n3(X, ) coincide for cohomology modulo torsion.
