We compute the generalized slices (as defined by Spitzweck–Østvær) of the motivic spectrum KO (representing Hermitian K ‐theory) in terms of motivic cohomology and (a version of) generalized motivic cohomology, obtaining good agreement with the situation in classical topology and the results predicted by Markett–Schlichting. As an application, we compute the homotopy sheaves of (this version of) generalized motivic cohomology, which establishes a version of a conjecture of Morel. 

Hermitian K-theory via oriented Gorenstein algebras

We show that hermitian K-theory is universal among generalized motivic cohomology theories with transfers along finite Gorenstein morphisms with trivialized dualizing sheaf. As an application, we

On very effective hermitian K-theory

We argue that the very effective cover of hermitian K-theory in the sense of motivic homotopy theory is a convenient algebro-geometric generalization of the connective real topological K-theory

On the effectivity of spectra representing motivic cohomology theories

Let k be an infinite perfect field. We provide a general criterion for a spectrum in the stable homotopy category over k to be effective, i.e. to be in the localizing subcategory generated by the

Split Milnor-Witt Motives and its Applications to Fiber Bundles

. We study the Milnor-Witt motives which are a finite direct sum of Z ( q )[ p ] and Z /η ( q )[ p ]. We show that for MW-motives of this type, we can determine an MW-motivic cohomology class in terms

Strong convergence in the motivic Adams spectral sequence

We prove strong convergence results for the motivic Adams spectral sequence of the sphere spectrum over fields with finite virtual cohomological dimension at the prime 2, and over arbitrary fields at

The Dual Motivic Witt Cohomology Steenrod Algebra

In this paper we begin the study of the (dual) Steenrod algebra of the motivic Witt cohomology spectrum HWZ by determining the algebra structure of HWZ∗∗HWZ over fields k of characteristic not 2

Milnor-Witt Motives

We develop the theory of Milnor-Witt motives and motivic cohomology. Compared to Voevodsky's theory of motives and his motivic cohomology, the first difference appears in our definition of

Stable motivic invariants are eventually étale local

In this paper we prove a Thomason-style descent theorem for the $\rho$-complete sphere spectrum. In particular, we deduce a very general etale descent result for torsion, $\rho$-complete motivic

$\eta$-periodic motivic stable homotopy theory over fields

Over any field of characteristic not 2, we establish a 2-term resolution of the $\eta$-periodic, 2-local motivic sphere spectrum by shifts of the connective 2-local Witt K-theory spectrum. This is



Slices of hermitian $K$–theory and Milnor's conjecture on quadratic forms

We advance the understanding of K-theory of quadratic forms by computing the slices of the motivic spectra representing hermitian K-groups and Witt-groups. By an explicit computation of the slice

Geometric models for higher Grothendieck-Witt groups in A1-homotopy theory

We show that the higher Grothendieck-Witt groups, a.k.a. algebraic hermitian K-groups, are represented by an infinite orthogonal Grassmannian in the A1-homotopy category of smooth schemes over a

On the Zero Slice of the Sphere Spectrum

In this paper we prove over fields of characteristic zero that the zero slice of the motivic sphere spectrum is the motivic Eilenberg-Maclane spectrum. As a corollary one concludes that the slices of

The Mayer-Vietoris principle for Grothendieck-Witt groups of schemes

We prove localization and Zariski-Mayer-Vietoris for higher Gro-thendieck-Witt groups, alias hermitian K-groups, of schemes admitting an ample family of line-bundles. No assumption on the

The motivic Steenrod algebra in positive characteristic

Let S be an essentially smooth scheme over a field and l a prime number invertible on S. We show that the algebra of bistable operations in the mod l motivic cohomology of smooth S-schemes is


We introduce the category of finite Chow-Witt correspondences over a perfect field k with char(k) 6 2. We then define for any essentially smooth scheme X and integers p;q 2 Z generalized motivic
