Factorization centers in dimension two and the Grothendieck ring of varieties

We initiate the study of factorization centers of birational maps, and complete it for surfaces over a perfect field in this article. We prove that for every birational automorphism $\phi : X \dashrightarrow X$ of a smooth projective surface $X$ over a perfect field $k$, the blowup centers are isomorphic to the blowdown centers in every weak factorization of $\phi$. This implies that nontrivial L-equivalences of $0$-dimensional varieties cannot be constructed based on birational automorphisms… 

Motivic invariants of birational maps

. We construct invariants of birational maps with values in the Kontsevich–Tschinkel group and in the truncated Grothendieck groups of varieties. These invariants are morphisms of groupoids and are

Burnside groups and orbifold invariants of birational maps

. We construct new invariants of equivariant birational isomorphisms taking values in equivariant Burnside groups.



Grothendieck ring of varieties, D- and L-equivalence, and families of quadrics

We discuss a conjecture saying that derived equivalence of smooth projective simply connected varieties implies that the difference of their classes in the Grothendieck ring of varieties is

The class of a torus in the Grothendieck ring of varieties

We establish a formula for the classes of certain tori in the Grothendieck ring of varieties, expressing them in terms of the natural lambda-structure on the Grothendieck ring. More explicitly, we

The Fano variety of lines and rationality problem for a cubic hypersurface

We find a relation between a cubic hypersurface $Y$ and its Fano variety of lines $F(Y)$ in the Grothendieck ring of varieties. We prove that if the class of an affine line is not a zero-divisor in

The annihilator of the Lefschetz motive

In this paper we study a spectrum $K(\mathcal{V}_k)$ such that $\pi_0 K(\mathcal{V}_k)$ is the Grothendieck ring of varieties and such that the higher homotopy groups contain more geometric

Relations in the Cremona group over perfect fields

For perfect fields $k$ satisfying $[\bar k:k]>2$, we construct new normal subgroups of the plane Cremona group and provide an elementary proof of its non-simplicity, following the melody of the

We construct a natural semiorthogonal decomposition for the derived category of an arbitrary flat family of sextic del Pezzo surfaces with at worst du Val singularities. This decomposition has

A note on motivic integration in mixed characteristic

We introduce a quotient of the Grothendieck ring of varieties by identifying classes of universally homeomorphic varieties. We show that the standard realization morphisms factor through this

Semiorthogonal decompositions and birational geometry of del Pezzo surfaces over arbitrary fields

We study the birational properties of geometrically rational surfaces from a derived categorical perspective. In particular, we give a criterion for the rationality of a del Pezzo surface S over an
