Splitting Brauer classes
Wei Ho (University of Michigan)
Abstract: Given a Brauer class over a field, what types of varieties split it? Or more geometrically, can we say anything about the varieties that map to a given Brauer-Severi variety? In this talk, we will discuss some open questions related to splitting Brauer classes. For example, we will review some classical algebro-geometric constructions that produce genus one curves splitting low index Brauer classes ((old) joint work with A.J. de Jong), and we will explain why a Brauer class of any index is split by a torsor under an abelian variety (joint work with M. Lieblich).
