(p.1) Chapter One Introduction
Chow Rings, Decomposition of the Diagonal, and the Topology of Families (AM-187)

Claire Voisin

Princeton University Press

This chapter discusses some crucial notions to the interplay between cohomology and Chow groups, and also to the consequences, for the topology of a family of smooth projective varieties, of statements concerning Chow groups of the general or very general fiber. It surveys the main ideas and results presented throughout this volume. First, the chapter discusses the decomposition of the diagonal and spread. It then explains the generalized Bloch conjecture, the converse to the generalized decomposition of the diagonal. Next, the chapter turns to the decomposition of the small diagonal and its application to the topology of families. Finally, the chapter discusses integral coefficients and birational invariants before providing a brief overview of the following chapters.

Keywords:   cohomology, Chow groups, smooth projective varieties, generalized Bloch conjecture, small diagonal, integral coefficients, birational invariants
