Séminaire Arithmétique et Géométrie Algébrique
Unipotent homotopy theory of schemes
April 2023
Intervenant : Shubhodip Mondal
Institution : University of Bonn
Heure : 14h00 - 15h00
Lieu : Salle 3L15

Building on Toen's work on higher (affine) stacks, I will discuss a notion of homotopy theory for algebraic varieties, which we call ``unipotent homotopy theory". Over a field of char. p>0, I will explain how our unipotent homotopy group schemes recover (1) unipotent completion of the Nori fundamental group scheme, (2) p-adic 'etale homotopy groups, and (3) certain formal group laws arising from algebraic varieties constructed by Artin--Mazur. Time permitting, I will discuss unipotent homotopy types of Calabi--Yau varieties and show that the unipotent homotopy group schemes \pi^U_i of Calabi--Yau varieties (of dimension n)  are derived invariant for all i; the case i = n corresponds to a recent result of Antieau--Bragg. This is joint work with Emanuel Reinecke.
