Some recent developments on

Hodge Theory and Chow groups


Dr. Avery Ching

University of California at Los Angeles, USA



        The Chow group of a variety is a fundamental subject in intersection theory. But it can be computed in a few trivial cases only. Its general structure is even more mysterious. In this talk, we intend to explain a construction of the formal tangent spaces of Chow groups. We will discuss how it gives partial solutions to some open problems, and its deficiencies.
