$J$-invariant of hermitian forms over quadratic extensions

Raphaël Fino

Vol. 300 (2019), No. 2, 375–404
Abstract

We develop a version of the $J$-invariant for hermitian forms over quadratic extensions using a similar method to Alexander Vishik’s approach using quadratic forms. This discrete invariant contains information about rationality of algebraic cycles on the maximal unitary grassmannian associated with a hermitian form over a quadratic extension. The computation of the canonical $2$-dimension of this grassmannian in terms of the $J$-invariant is provided, as well as a complete motivic decomposition.
