Syntomic cohomology and regulators for varieties over p-adic fields

22 Sep 2016  ·  Nekovář Jan, Nizioł Wiesława ·

We show that the logarithmic version of the syntomic cohomology of Fontaine and Messing for semistable varieties over $p$-adic rings extends uniquely to a cohomology theory for varieties over $p$-adic fields that satisfies $h$-descent. This new cohomology - syntomic cohomology - is a Bloch-Ogus cohomology theory, admits period map to \'etale cohomology, and has a syntomic descent spectral sequence (from an algebraic closure of the given field to the field itself) that is compatible with the Hochschild-Serre spectral sequence on the \'etale side... In relative dimension zero we recover the potentially semistable Selmer groups and, as an application, we prove that Soul\'e's \'etale regulators land in the potentially semistable Selmer groups. Our construction of syntomic cohomology is based on new ideas and techniques developed by Beilinson and Bhatt in their recent work on $p$-adic comparison read more
