Normal Functions and the Hodge Conjecture

4:00 pm Thursday, September 5, 2013
Gregory Pearlstein (Texas A&M)

The theory of normal functions and the Hodge conjecture have their origin in the study of algebraic cycles by Lefschetz and Poincare. I will sketch the history of the subject and discuss some of my recent work on singularities of normal functions to the Hodge conjecture and the zero locus of a normal function to a conjectural filtration of Bloch and Beilinson.
