In faces we meet by the way,
They unconsciously tell of motive or deed
That the tongue would refuse to betray.

And all the spirit's nerve!

In science:
This classiﬁcation enables to observe in theorem 4.5 a startling rigidity of these motives with respect of A, which we call the motivic dichotomy of pro jective linear groups.
Upper motives of products of projective linear groups
We then study the case of indecomposable motives lying in the motivic decompositions of pro jective homogeneous varieties under the action of products of pro jective linear groups.
Upper motives of products of projective linear groups
These results are certainly of independent interest, and are then related with the theory of upper motives in the last section to get our motivic classiﬁcation results.
Upper motives of products of projective linear groups
Keywords: Grothendieck motives, upper motives, algebraic groups, Severi-Brauer varieties.
Upper motives of products of projective linear groups
By [K¨oc91] (see also [CGM05]) the motive M (XF ) ∈ CM(F ; Λ) is isomorphic to a ﬁnite direct sum of Tate motives.
Upper motives of products of projective linear groups
Moreover by [CM06] X satisﬁes Rost nilpotence principle and thus the results of [CM06] (see also [Kar11]) show that the motive of X decomposes in an essentially unique way as a direct sum of indecomposable motives.
Upper motives of products of projective linear groups
The motive of X is denoted h(X ) and by deﬁnition is the motive (X, ∆X , 0) where ∆X is the class in CHdX (X × X ) of the diagonal in X × X . A morphism between two motives (X, p, n) and (Y , q , m) is a correspondence in q ◦ CHd+n−m(X × Y ) ◦ p.
Chow groups of smooth varieties fibred by quadrics
In this case there are several ways to compute the Chow motive of X in terms of the Chow motive of B .
Chow groups of smooth varieties fibred by quadrics
By , the Chow motive (with integer coeﬃcients) of the F -variety G/P decomposes in a ﬁnite direct sum of shifts of the motive of the F -varieties Spec K ′ , where K ′ runs over intermediate ﬁelds of the extension K/F .
Unitary grassmannians
There is a decomposition M (Xr ) ≃ Mr ⊕ M such that the motive M is a sum of shifts of M (Spec K ) and for any ﬁeld extension L/F with split hL the motive Mr is split (meaning is a sum of Tate motives).
Unitary grassmannians
The motive Mr (deﬁned by Xr uniquely up to an isomorphism) will be called the essential motive of Xr (or the essential part of the motive of Xr ).
Unitary grassmannians
According to the general result of , any summand of the complete motivic decomposition of the variety Xr is a shift of the upper motive U (Xs ) for some s ≥ r or a shift of the motive of the F -variety Spec K .
Unitary grassmannians
Any summand of the complete decomposition of the essential motive Mr is a shift of the upper motive U (Xs ) for some s ≥ r .
Unitary grassmannians
Remark 7.8. A motive is split if it is isomorphic to a ﬁnite direct sum of Tate motives. A motive is geometrical ly split if it becomes split over an extension of the base ﬁeld.
Unitary grassmannians
Dimension dim P of a geometrically split motive P is the maximum of |i − j | for i and j running over the integers such that the Tate motives M (Spec L)(i) and M (Spec L)(j ) are direct summands of PL , where L/F is a ﬁeld extension splitting N .
