Title: Rost nilpotence for threefolds
After recalling the Rost nilpotence property and its meaning, I will
show that for 3-dimensional smooth projective varieties over a field
of characteristic 0, one has only 'to care' about 0-cycles. Using the
Brown- Gersten-Quillen spectral sequence, one can get one's hands on
the zero cycles of a 3-dimensional toric model allowing a proof of
Rost nilpotence for such varieties.
