Let k be a finite base field. In this note, making use of topological periodic cyclic homology and of the theory of noncommutative motives, we prove that the numerical Grothendieck group of every smooth proper dg k-linear category is a finitely generated free abelian group. Along the way, we prove moreover that the category of noncommutative numerical motives over k is abelian semi-simple, as conjectured by Kontsevich. Read More

In this article we prove that the numerical Grothendieck group of every smooth proper dg category is invariant under primary field extensions, and also that the mod-n algebraic K-theory of every dg category is invariant under extensions of separably closed fields. As a byproduct, we obtain an extension of Suslin's rigidity theorem, as well as of Yagunov-Ostvaer's equivariant rigidity theorem, to singular varieties. Among other applications, we show that base-change along primary field extensions yields a faithfully flat morphism between noncommutative motivic Galois groups. Read More

In this note we compute several invariants (e.g. algebraic K-theory, cyclic homology and topological Hochschild homology) of the noncommutative projective schemes associated to Koszul algebras of finite global dimension. Read More

In this article, using the recent theory of noncommutative motives, we compute the additive invariants of orbifolds (equipped with a sheaf of Azumaya algebras) using solely "fixed-point data". As a consequence, we recover, in a unified and conceptual way, the original results of Vistoli concerning algebraic K-theory, of Baranovsky concerning cyclic homology, of the second author with Polishchuk concerning Hochschild homology, and of Baranovsky-Petrov and Caldararu-Arinkin (unpublished) concerning twisted Hochschild homology; in the case of topological Hochschild homology and periodic topological cyclic homology, the aforementioned computation is new in the literature. As an application, we verify Grothendieck's standard conjectures of type C and D, as well as Voevodsky's smash-nilpotence conjecture, in the case of "low-dimensional" orbifolds. Read More

In this short note, making use of the recent theory of noncommutative mixed motives, we prove that the Voevodsky's mixed motive of a quadric fibration over a smooth curve is Kimura-finite. Read More

Written for the proceedings of the second Mid-Atlantic Topology Conference, held at Johns Hopkins University, this survey covers some of the recent developments on noncommutative motives and their applications. Among other topics, we compute the additive invariants (e.g. Read More

Making use of the recent theory of noncommutative motives, we prove that Schur-finiteness in the setting of Voevodsky's mixed motives is invariant under homological projective duality. As an application, we show that the mixed motives of smooth linear sections of certain (Lagrangian) Grassmannians, spinor varieties, and determinantal varieties, are Schur-finite. Finally, we upgrade our applications from Schur-finiteness to Kimura-finiteness. Read More

Making use of Gruson-Raynaud's technique of "platification par eclatement", Kerz and Strunk proved that the negative homotopy K-theory groups of a Noetherian scheme X of Krull dimension d vanish below -d. In this note, making use of noncommutative algebraic geometry, we improve this result in the case of quotient singularities by proving that the negative homotopy K-theory groups vanish below -1. Furthermore, in the case of cyclic quotient singularities, we provide an explicit "upper bound" for the first negative homotopy K-theory group. Read More

This note is the sequel to [A note on secondary K-theory. Algebra and Number Theory 10 (2016), no. 4, 887-906]. Read More

Grothendieck conjectured in the sixties that the even Kunneth projector (with respect to a Weil cohomology theory) is algebraic and that the homological equivalence relation on algebraic cycles coincides with the numerical equivalence relation. In this note we extend these celebrated conjectures from smooth projective schemes to the broad setting of smooth proper dg categories. As an application, we prove that Grothendieck's original conjectures are invariant under homological projective duality. Read More

Making use of the recent theory of noncommutative motives, we construct a new motivic measure, which we call the Tits' motivic measure. As a first application, we prove that two Severi-Brauer varieties (or more generally twisted Grassmannian varieties), associated to central simple algebras of period 2, have the same Grothendieck class if and only if they are isomorphic. As a second application, we show that if two Severi-Brauer varieties, associated to central simple algebras of period 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6, have the same Grothendieck class, then they are necessarily birational. Read More

In this note we prove some structural properties of all the A1-homotopy invariants of corner skew Laurent polynomial algebras. As an application, we compute de mod-l algebraic K-theory of Leavitt path algebras using solely the kernel/cokernel of the incidence matrix. This leads naturally to some vanishing and divisibility properties of the algebraic K-theory of these algebras. Read More

To every scheme, not necessarily smooth neither proper, we can associate its different mixed realizations (de Rham, Betti, etale, Hodge, etc) as well as its ring of periods. In this note, following an insight of Kontsevich, we prove that, after suitable modifications, these classical constructions can be extended from schemes to the broad setting of dg categories. This leads to new additive invariants, which we compute in the case of differential operators, as well as to a theory of periods of dg categories. Read More

We develop a general theory which enables the computation of the Picard group of a symmetric monoidal triangulated category, equipped with a weight structure, in terms of the Picard group of the associated heart. As an application, we compute the Picard group of several categories of motivic nature - mixed Artin motives, mixed Artin-Tate motives, motivic spectra, noncommutative mixed Artin motives, noncommutative mixed motives of central simple algebras, noncommutative mixed motives of separable algebras - as well as the Picard group of the derived categories of symmetric ring spectra. Read More

In this short note, by combining the work of Amiot-Iyama-Reiten and Thanhoffer de Volcsey-Van den Bergh on Cohen-Macaulay modules with the previous work of the author on orbit categories, we compute the (nonconnective) algebraic K-theory with coefficients of cyclic quotient singularities. Read More

Given a finite group G, we develop a theory of G-equivariant noncommutative motives. This theory provides a well-adapted framework for the study of G-schemes, Picard groups of schemes, G-algebras, 2-cocycles, equivariant algebraic K-theory, orbifold cohomology theory, etc. Among other results, we relate our theory with its commutative counterpart as well as with Panin's motivic theory.

Let X be a smooth scheme, Z a smooth closed subscheme, and U the open complement. Given any localizing and A1-homotopy invariant of dg categories E, we construct an associated Gysin triangle relating the value of E at the dg categories of perfect complexes of X, Z, and U. In the particular case where E is homotopy K-theory, this Gysin triangle yields a new proof of Quillen's localization theorem, which avoids the use of devissage. Read More

We prove that Toen's secondary Grothendieck ring is isomorphic to the Grothendieck ring of smooth proper pretriangulated dg categories previously introduced by Bondal, Larsen and Lunts. Along the way, we show that those short exact sequences of dg categories in which the first term is smooth proper and the second term is proper are necessarily split. As an application, we prove that the canonical map from the derived Brauer group to the secondary Grothendieck ring has the following injective properties: in the case of a commutative ring of characteristic zero, it distinguishes between dg Azumaya algebras associated to non-torsion cohomology classes and dg Azumaya algebras associated to torsion cohomology classes (=ordinary Azumaya algebras); in the case of a field of characteristic zero, it is injective; in the case of a field of positive characteristic p>0, it restricts to an injective map on the p-primary component of the Brauer group. Read More

C. Weibel and Thomason-Trobaugh proved (under some assumptions) that algebraic K-theory with coefficients is A1-homotopy invariant. In this article we generalize this result from schemes to the broad setting of dg categories. Read More

We start by developing a theory of noncommutative (=NC) mixed motives with coefficients in any commutative ring. In particular, we construct a symmetric monoidal triangulated category of NC mixed motives, over a base field k, and a full subcategory of NC mixed Artin motives. Making use of Hochschild homology, we then apply Ayoub's weak Tannakian formalism to these motivic categories. Read More

In this short note we establish some properties of all those motivic measures which can be exponentiated. As a first application, we show that the rationality of Kapranov's zeta function is stable under products. As a second application, we give an elementary proof of a result of Totaro. Read More

In this article we study in detail the category of noncommutative motives of separable algebras Sep(k) over a base field k. We start by constructing four different models of the full subcategory of commutative separable algebras CSep(k). Making use of these models, we then explain how the category Sep(k) can be described as a "fibered Z-order" over CSep(k). Read More

In this article we develop a broad generalization of the classical Bost-Connes system, where roots of unit are replaced by an algebraic datum consisting of an abelian group and a semi-group of endomorphisms. Examples include roots of unit, Weil restriction, algebraic numbers, Weil numbers, CM fields, germs, completion of Weil numbers, etc. Making use of the Tannakian formalism, we categorify these algebraic data. Read More

Let A be a dg category, F:A->A a dg functor inducing an equivalence of categories in degree-zero cohomology, and A/F the associated dg orbit category. For every A1-homotopy invariant (e.g. Read More

In this note we extend Voevodsky's nilpotence conjecture from smooth projective schemes to the broader setting of smooth proper dg categories. Making use of this noncommutative generalization, we then address Voevodsky's original conjecture in the following cases: quadric fibrations, intersection of quadrics, linear sections of Grassmannians, linear sections of determinantal varieties, homological projective duals, and Moishezon manifolds. Read More

In this article we continue the development of a theory of noncommutative motives. We construct categories of A1-homotopy noncommutative motives, described their universal properties, and compute their spectra of morphisms in terms of Karoubi-Villamayor's K-theory (KV) and Weibel's homotopy K-theory (KH). As an application, we obtain a complete classification of all the natural transformations defined on KV, KH. Read More

Following an insight of Kontsevich, we prove that the quotient of Voevodsky's category of geometric mixed motives DM by the endofunctor -Q(1)[2] embeds fully-faithfully into Kontsevich's category of noncommutative mixed motives KMM. We show also that this embedding is compatible with the one between pure motives. As an application, we obtain a precise relation between the Picard groups Pic(-), the Grothendieck groups, the Schur-finitenss, and the Kimura-finitenss of the categories DM and KMM. Read More

This survey is based on lectures given by the authors during the program "Noncommutative algebraic geometry and representation theory" at the MSRI, Berkeley, in the spring of 2013. It covers the recent work of the authors on noncommutative motives and their applications, and is intended for a broad mathematical audience. Read More

The Beilinson-Bloch type conjectures predict that the low degree rational Chow groups of intersections of quadrics are one dimensional. This conjecture was proved by Otwinowska. Making use of homological projective duality and the recent theory of (Jacobians of) noncommutative Chow motives, we give an alternative proof of this conjecture in the case of a complete intersection of either two quadrics or three odd-dimensional quadrics. Read More

I. Panin proved in the nineties that the algebraic K-theory of twisted projective homogeneous varieties can be expressed in terms of central simple algebras. Later, Merkurjev and Panin described the algebraic K-theory of toric varieties as a direct summand of the algebraic K-theory of separable algebras. Read More

Let k be a base commutative ring, R a commutative ring of coefficients, X a quasi-compact quasi-separated k-scheme, A a sheaf of Azumaya algebras over X of rank r, and Hmo(R) the category of noncommutative motives with R-coefficients. Assume that 1/r belongs to R. Under this assumption, we prove that the noncommutative motives with R-coefficients of X and A are isomorphic. Read More

The Weil restriction functor, introduced in the late fifties, was recently extended by Karpenko to the category of Chow motives with integral coefficients. In this article we introduce the noncommutative (=NC) analogue of the Weil restriction functor, where schemes are replaced by dg algebras, and extend it to Kontsevich's categories of NC Chow motives and NC numerical motives. Instead of integer coefficients, we work more generally with coefficients in a binomial ring. Read More

Let X and Y be complex smooth projective varieties, and D^b(X) and D^b(Y) the associated bounded derived categories of coherent sheaves. Assume the existence of a triangulated category T which is admissible both in D^b(X) as in D^b(Y). Making use of the recent theory of Jacobians of noncommutative motives, we construct out of this categorical data a morphism t of abelian varieties (up to isogeny) from the product of the intermediate algebraic Jacobians of X to the product of the intermediate algebraic Jacobians of Y. Read More

Let k be a perfect field and A a finite dimensional k-algebra of finite global dimension (e.g. the path algebra of a finite quiver without oriented cycles). Read More

In this note we relate the notions of Lefschetz type, decomposability, and isomorphism, on Chow motives with the notions of unit type, decomposability, and isomorphism, on noncommutative motives. Examples, counter-examples, and applications are also described. Read More

In this article we study the K-theory of endomorphisms using noncommutative motives. We start by extending the K-theory of endomorphisms functor from ordinary rings to (stable) infinity categories. We then prove that this extended functor KEnd(-) not only descends to the category of noncommutative motives but moreover becomes co-represented by the noncommutative motive associated to the tensor algebra S[t] of the sphere spectrum S. Read More

Making use of the recent theory of noncommutative motives, we prove that every additive invariant satisfies Galois descent. Examples include mixed complexes, Hochschild homology, cyclic homology, periodic cyclic homology, negative cyclic homology, connective algebraic K-theory, mod-l algebraic K-theory, nonconnective algebraic K-theory, homotopy K-theory, topological Hochschild homology, and topological cyclic homology. Read More

Vorst and latter Dayton-Weibel proved that K_n-regularity implies K_(n-1)-regularity. In this note we generalize this result from (commutative) rings to differential graded categories and from algebraic K-theory to any functor which is Morita invariant, continuous, and localizing. Moreover, we show that regularity is preserved under taking desuspensions, fibers of morphisms, direct factors, and arbitrary direct sums. Read More

In this article one extends the classical theory of (intermediate) Jacobians to the "noncommutative world". Concretely, one constructs a Q-linear additive Jacobian functor J(-) from the category of noncommutative Chow motives to the category of abelian varieties up to isogeny, with the following properties: (i) the first de Rham cohomology group of J(N) agrees with the subspace of the odd periodic cyclic homology of N which is generated by algebraic curves; (ii) the abelian variety J(perf(X)) (associated to the derived dg category perf(X) of a smooth projective scheme X) identifies with the union of all the intermediate algebraic Jacobians of X. Read More

Let K be a commutative ring. In this article we construct a symmetric monoidal Quillen model structure on the category of small K-categories which enhances classical Morita theory. We then use it in order to obtain a natural tensor categorification of the Brauer group and of its functoriality. Read More

In this article we introduce the categories of noncommutative (mixed) Artin motives. In the pure world, we start by proving that the classical category AM(k) of Artin motives (over a base field k) can be characterized as the largest category inside Chow motives which fully-embeds into noncommutative Chow motives. Making use of a refined bridge between pure motives and noncommutative pure motives we then show that the image of this full embedding, which we call the category NAM(k) of noncommutative Artin motives, is invariant under the different equivalence relations and modification of the symmetry isomorphism constraints. Read More

Making use of noncommutative motives we relate exceptional collections (and more generally semi-orthogonal decompositions) to motivic decompositions. On one hand we prove that the Chow motive M(X) of every smooth proper Deligne-Mumford stack X, whose bounded derived category D(X) of coherent schemes admits a full exceptional collection, decomposes into a direct sum of tensor powers of the Lefschetz motive. Examples include projective spaces, quadrics, toric varieties, homogeneous spaces, Fano threefolds, and moduli spaces. Read More

In this article we establish the foundations of the Morita homotopy theory of C*-categories. Concretely, we construct a cofibrantly generated simplicial symmetric monoidal Quillen model structure M_Mor on the category C*cat1 of small unital C*-categories. The weak equivalences are the Morita equivalences and the cofibrations are the *-functors which are injective on objects. Read More

In this short note we introduce the unconditional noncommutative motivic Galois groups and relate them with those of Andre-Kahn. Read More

In this note we endow Kontsevich's category KMM of noncommutative mixed motives with a non-degenerate weight structure in the sense of Bondarko. As an application we obtain a convergent weight spectral sequence for every additive invariant (e.g. Read More

V. Lunts has recently established Lefschetz fixed point theorems for Fourier-Mukai functors and dg algebras. In the same vein, D. Read More

In this article we further the study of noncommutative numerical motives. By exploring the change-of-coefficients mechanism, we start by improving some of our previous main results. Then, making use of the notion of Schur-finiteness, we prove that the category NNum(k)_F of noncommutative numerical motives is (neutral) super-Tannakian. Read More

In this note we prove that Kontsevich's category NCnum of noncommutative numerical motives is equivalent to the one constructed by the authors. As a consequence, we conclude that NCnum is abelian semi-simple as conjectured by Kontsevich. Read More

These are the extended notes of a survey talk on noncommutative motives given at the 3era Escuela de Inverno Luis Santalo - CIMPA Research School: Topics in Noncommutative Geometry, Buenos Aires, July 26 to August 6, 2010. Read More

In this article we further the study of the relationship between pure motives and noncommutative motives. Making use of Hochschild homology, we introduce the category NNum(k)_F of noncommutative numerical motives (over a base ring k and with coefficients in a field F). We prove that NNum(k)_F is abelian semi-simple and that Grothendieck's category Num(k)_Q of numerical motives embeds in NNum(k)_Q after being factored out by the action of the Tate object. Read More
