# Lectures on the Theory of Pure Motives

Share this page
*Jacob P. Murre; Jan Nagel; Chris A. M. Peters*

The theory of motives was created by Grothendieck in the 1960s as he
searched for a universal cohomology theory for algebraic
varieties. The theory of pure motives is well established as far as
the construction is concerned. Pure motives are expected to have a
number of additional properties predicted by Grothendieck's standard
conjectures, but these conjectures remain wide open. The theory for
mixed motives is still incomplete.

This book deals primarily with the theory of pure motives. The
exposition begins with the fundamentals: Grothendieck's construction
of the category of pure motives and examples. Next, the standard
conjectures and the famous theorem of Jannsen on the category of the
numerical motives are discussed. Following this, the important theory
of finite dimensionality is covered. The concept of Chow-Künneth
decomposition is introduced, with discussion of the known results and
the related conjectures, in particular the conjectures of
Bloch-Beilinson type. We finish with a chapter on relative motives and
a chapter giving a short introduction to Voevodsky's theory of mixed
motives.
