Books written by Vladimir Voevodsky.
In 2002 Voevodsky received the Fields Medal for defining and developing motivic cohomology and the A1-homotopy theory of algebraic varieties, as well as proving the Milnor conjectures on the K-theory of fields.
Cycles, Transfers, and Motivic Homology Theories
The original goal that ultimately led to this volume was the construction of "motivic cohomology theory," whose existence was conjectured by A. Beilinson and S. Lichtenbaum. This is achieved in the book's fourth paper, using results of the other papers whose additional role is to contribute to our understanding of various properties of algebraic cycles. The material presented provides the foundations for the recent proof of the celebrated "Milnor Conjecture" by Vladimir Voevodsky.
Lecture Notes on Motivic Cohomology
The notion of a motive is an elusive one, like its namesake "the motif" of Cezanne's impressionist method of painting. Its existence was first suggested by Grothendieck in 1964 as the underlying structure behind the myriad cohomology theories in Algebraic Geometry. We now know that there is a triangulated theory of motives, discovered by Vladimir Voevodsky, which suffices for the development of a satisfactory Motivic Cohomology theory. However, the existence of motives themselves remains conjectural. The lecture notes format is designed for the book to be read by an advanced graduate student or an expert in a related field.
Motivic Homotopy Theory
This book is based on lectures given at a summer school on motivic homotopy theory at the Sophus Lie Centre in Nordfjordeid, Norway, in August 2002. Vladimir Voevodsky is one of the founders of the theory and received the Fields medal for his work.
