Relation between motivic homotopy category and the derived category of motives

What's the relation between the pointed motivic homotopy category $\mathcal{H}_*(k)$ and the derived category of motives $\mathbf{DM}^-_{eff}(k)$ besides the representability of motivic cohomology in ...

Applications of homotopy purity theorem of Morel-Voevodsky

One of the most important theorems in motivic homotopy theory is the homotopy purity theorem of Morel-Voevodsky which says that the motivic Thom space of the normal bundle $\mathcal N_{Z/X}$ of a ...

Reasons for the use of Nisnevich topology in motivic homotopy theory

The objects of interest in motivic homotopy theory are "spaces"-which are simplicial sheaves of sets on the big Nisnevich site $Sm/k$ of smooth schemes of finite type over a field $k$. I understand ...

Is the injective model structure on symmetric spectra Bousfield localizable?

I am interested in injective model structures on both symmetric spectra as exposed in Hovey/Shipley/Smith and motivic symmetric spectra as in Jardine's article. Both authors take a model structure on ...

The vanishing of $MGL^{2n+i,n}(X)$; do spectra of smooth projective varieties generate $SH_{l}$?

I have two questions related to the stable motivic homotopy categories of Morel-Voevodsky. The first is probably simple; I wonder what is known on the second one. For the algebraic cobordism theory ...

Properness of the category of modules over a spectrum (that represents algebraic cobordism or motivic cohomology)

The abstract form of the question: let $C$ be a closed proper stable model category, $R$ is a ring object in it. Which conditions ensure that the category $R-mod$ is also proper? Since weak ...

Ring structure for the motivic spectrum/complex that represents singular cohomology?

As the discussion here Is singular cohomology representable by a (Voevodsky's) motivic complex? shows, the singular cohomology of (smooth) complex varieties is represented by a motivic complex ...

Category of motivic spectra

When the survey Axiomatic Stable Homotopy, Neil Strickland, 2004 was written the category of motivic spectra was not investigated from the point of view of axiomatic stable homotopy, as considered ...

Nice references for injective model structures and Quillen functors between motivic homotopy categories

It seems that for the injective model structures for the categories simplicial presheaves and simplicial Nisnevich sheaves (on the category of smooth varieties over a perfect field $k$) there exist ...

Motivic homotopy spectral sequence

I would like to have a question about the re-index convention. Let us consider a spectrum $E$ (I am mainly interested in motivic setting, however let's consider the simplicial case firstly, i.e. $E$ ...

Can motivic E_∞-ring spectra be strictified to commutative motivic symmetric ring spectra?

Theorem 4.4.4.7 in Lurie's Higher Algebra (or Theorem 4.3.22 in DAG III) states (roughly speaking) that under certain conditions the ∞-category of commutative ∞-monoids in a given symmetric monoidal ...

$T$-stable vs. $S^1$-stable motivic homotopy category: which sorts of transfers are available?

I would like to have some sort of transfers in motivic stable homotopy categories in order to adapt Voevodsky's split standard triple argument to cohomology theories that can be factorized through ...

What is the status of the Friedlander-Milnor conjecture today?

For the purposes of this question, the Friedlander-Milnor (FM) conjecture asserts an equality of the group homology for algebraic groups, and their discretizations in the following sense: Conjecture ...

Two questions on motivic homotopy theory

I am a beginner in motivic homotopy theory and motivic cohomology and have just begun reading books by Dundas et al. and Mazza-Voevodsky-Weibel. I have two basic questions: Why is the question of ...

A $2$-torsion version of the motivic stable homotopy category?

For a field $k$ there exists the motivic stable homotopy $SH(k)$; it is compactly generated. My question: does there exist a 'reasonable' functor $p$ from $SH(k)$ to a certain triangulated category ...

Blow-ups in Motivic Homotopy Theory

I have what I hope is an easy question in motivic homotopy theory: Let $X$ be a smooth scheme over a field $k$, and let $Z\subset X$ be a closed sub-scheme. Let $Bl_Z(X)$ denote the blow-up of $X$ at ...

Reference for Cech cohomology for Nisnevich topology

I need the theorems that prove that Nisnevich cohomology can be computed by the Cech complex similar to what happens in the étale topology. I know this has to be true since (Morel-Voevodsky: ...
