This paper examines Euler characteristics and characteristic classes in the motivic setting. We establish a motivic version of the Becker–Gottlieb transfer, generalizing a construction of Hoyois.

We reconstruct hermitian K-theory via algebraic symplectic cobordism. In the motivic stable homotopy category SH(S) there is a unique morphism g : MSp -> BO of commutative ring T- spectra which sends
Some Recent Trends in Motivic Homotopy Theory
Introduction Since its inception in the 1990s by Morel and Voevodsky, and Voevodsky’s application to the proofs of the Milnor conjecture and the Bloch–Kato conjecture, A1-homotopy theory or, as it is
Motivic Pontryagin classes and hyperbolic orientations
We introduce the notion of hyperbolic orientation of a motivic ring spectrum, which generalises the various existing notions of orientation (by the groups GL, SLc, SL, Sp). We show that hyperbolic
Motivic Cell Structures for Spherical Varieties
In this note, we give a general method to obtain unstable motivic cell structures, following Wendt's application of the Bialynicki-Birula algebraic Morse theory. We then apply the method to spherical
The main purpose of this article is to define a quadratic analogue of the Chern character, the so-called Borel character, that identifies rational higher Grothendieck-Witt groups with a sum of
Moving lemmas in mixed characteristic and applications
The present paper contains new geometric theorems proven in mixed characteristic case. We derive a bunch of cohomological consequences using these geometric theorems. Among them an isotropy result
The homotopy Leray spectral sequence
This work builds a spectral sequence in motivic homotopy that is analogous to both the Serre spectral sequences in algebraic topology and the Leray spectral sequencein algebraic geometry and gives a convenient description of its $E_2-page.
Chow–Witt rings of classifying spaces for symplectic and special linear groups
We compute the Chow–Witt rings of the classifying spaces for the symplectic and special linear groups. In the structural description we give, contributions from real and complex realization are


On the motivic commutative ring spectrum $\mathbf {BO}$
We construct an algebraic commutative ring T -spectrum BO which is stably fibrant and (8, 4)-periodic and such that on SmOp/S the cohomology theory (X, U) 7→ BO(X+/U+) and Schlichting’s hermitian
Orientations and transfers in cohomology of algebraic varieties
Algebro-geometric cohomology theories are described axiomatically, with a systematic treatment of their orientations. For every oriented theory, transfer mappings are constructed for mappings of
The general dévissage theorem for Witt groups of schemes
Abstract.Let $${\pi: Z \hookrightarrow X}$$ be a closed subscheme of the noetherian scheme X. We show that if X has a dualizing complex $${\mathcal{I}\bullet}$$ then there exists a dualizing

On a compact complex manifold X it is an interesting problem to compare the continuous and holomorphic vector bundles. The case of line-bundles is classical and is well understood in the framework of
Algebraic Cobordism
Together with F. Morel, we have constructed in [6, 7, 8] a theory of algebraic cobordism, an algebro-geometric version of the topological theory of complex cobordism. In this paper, we give a survey

Characteristic Classes
Let (P,M,G) be a principle fibre bundle over M with group G, connection ω and quotient map π. Recall that for all p ∈ P the Lie algebra G is identified with VpP := Kerπp∗ via the derivative of lp : G
