Remarks on the Lefschetz standard conjecture and hyperkähler varietiesFeb 26 2010Jul 06 2010We study the Lefschetz standard conjecture on a smooth complex projective variety X. In degree 2, we reduce it to a local statement concerning deformations of vector bundles on X. When X is hyperk\"ahler, we show that the existence of nontrivial deformations ... More
Conjugate varieties with distinct real cohomology algebrasJun 25 2007Jul 15 2008Using constructions of Voisin, we exhibit a smooth projective variety defined over a number field k and two complex embeddings of k, such that the two complex manifolds induced by these embeddings have non isomorphic cohomology algebras with real coefficients. ...
