Adjoint representation of E 8 and del Pezzo surfaces of degree 1

Vera V. SerganovaAlexei N. Skorobogatov — 2011

Annales de l’institut Fourier

Let X be a del Pezzo surface of degree 1 , and let G be the simple Lie group of type E 8 . We construct a locally closed embedding of a universal torsor over X into the G -orbit of the highest weight vector of the adjoint representation. This embedding is equivariant with respect to the action of the Néron-Severi torus T of X identified with a maximal torus of G extended by the group of scalars. Moreover, the T -invariant hyperplane sections of the torsor defined by the roots of G are the inverse images...

The Brauer group and the Brauer–Manin set of products of varieties

Alexei N. SkorobogatovYuri G. Zahrin — 2014

Journal of the European Mathematical Society

Let X and Y be smooth and projective varieties over a field k finitely generated over Q , and let X ¯ and Y ¯ be the varieties over an algebraic closure of k obtained from X and Y , respectively, by extension of the ground field. We show that the Galois invariant subgroup of Br ( X ¯ ) Br( Y ¯ ) has finite index in the Galois invariant subgroup of Br ( X ¯ × Y ¯ ) . This implies that the cokernel of the natural map Br ( X ) Br ( Y ) Br ( X × Y ) is finite when k is a number field. In this case we prove that the Brauer–Manin set of the product of...
