### The Rappoport-Zink spectral sequence vs. the one of the complement of a normal crossing divisor

As far as I understand these matters, for a regular $\mathfrak{X}$ that is proper flat of finite type over $\operatorname{Spec}\mathbb{Z}_p$, the Rappoport-Zink spectral sequence relates the etale ...

### Hodge modules and Deligne-Beilinson cohomology of function fields

Let $K$ be a function field over complex numbers i.e. the fraction field of a complex variety. Then one can define the Deligne-Beilinson cohomology and mixed Hodge modules for $K$ as the direct limit ...

### How to understand/analyze vanishing cycles and fibers of 6 dimensional Lefschetz fibration?

Say you have a polynomial $f(x,y,z,m)=x^3+y^3+z^3+m^3$ where $x,y,z,m \in \mathbb{C}$. Consider the Lefschetz fibration from $\{f=\mu\} \cap \{ |m|\leq \delta \}$ to $m$ for suitably small $\mu$ and ...
