John Rognes: Motivic complexes and the rank filtration, part I

The advances on the Milnor- and Bloch-Kato conjectures have led to a good understanding of motivic cohomology and algebraic K-theory with finite coefficients. However, important questions remain about rational motivic cohomology and algebraic K-theory, including the Beilinson-Soulé vanishing conjecture. We discuss how the speaker's "connectivity conjecture" for the stable rank filtration of algebraic K-theory leads to the construction of chain complexes whose cohomology groups may compute rational motivic cohomology, and simultaneously satisfy the vanishing conjecture. These "rank complexes" serve a similar purpose as Goncharov's candidates for motivic complexes, but have the advantage that they have a precise relation to rational algebraic K-theory. (Here are lecture notes from an earlier talk on the same subject.)
