abstract = {In the paper we introduce a transcendence degree of a zero-cycle on a smooth projective variety X and relate it to the structure of the motive of X. In particular, we show that in order to prove Bloch’s conjecture for a smooth projective complex surface X of general type with p g = 0 it suffices to prove that one single point of a transcendence degree 2 in X(ℂ), over the minimal subfield of definition k ⊂ ℂ of X, is rationally equivalent to another single point of a transcendence degree zero over k. This can be of particular interest in the context of Bloch’s conjecture for those surfaces which admit a concrete presentation, such as Mumford’s fake surface, see [Mumford D., An algebraic surface with K ample, (K 2) = 9, p g = q = 0, Amer.

In particular, we show that in order to prove Bloch’s conjecture for a smooth projective complex surface X of general type with p g = 0 it suffices to prove that one single point of a transcendence degree 2 in X(ℂ), over the minimal subfield of definition k ⊂ ℂ of X, is rationally equivalent to another single point of a transcendence degree zero over k. This can be of particular interest in the context of Bloch’s conjecture for those surfaces which admit a concrete presentation, such as Mumford’s fake surface, see [Mumford D., An algebraic surface with K ample, (K 2) = 9, p g = q = 0, Amer.
