In this definition we could restrict U to open sets in affine space An since a rational variety is covered by such sets. By drawing lines in An we see that it would suffice to take U to be open in A I. Now let T be a torus over k and let R c T(k) be the set of points which are R-equivalent to 1. It is very easy to see that R is a subgroup of T(k) and that the R-equivalence classes are exactly the cosets of R in T(k). 1 (Colliot - Thelt':ne and Sansuc). If' T is any k-torus, T(k)/R This group is completely determined by peT) E F".
T(k)/Rat. Here, of course, peT) means p(M) where T = T(K/k, M) and n = Gal(K/k). 1 that T(k)/R is a stable birational invariant of T. The group T(k)/R is given explicitly as a cohomology group determined by p(M). This can be expressed in a manner independent of the choice of the splitting field K as follows. If S is a torus defined over k let Hi(k, S) = Hi(Gal(L/k), S(L», the limit being taken over all finite Galois field extensions L of k. 2. Let T = T(K/k, M) with n = Gal(K/k). Then: (a) HO(k, T) = T(k) = Homz,,(M, K*).
Swan = P so S/M ;:::: P Ei:1 F. for N. D Therefore p(M) = [S/M] = [F] E F" and similarly It follows that the present definitions of F" and p(M) agree with those of Section 7. The monoid Frr is difficult to determine explicitly. We can define some more easily calculable invariants in the following way. Suppose 0: Zrr. --+ R is a ring homomorphism with R a Dedekind ring. If M is in fi'rr define (R®z" M)o to be R ®z" M modulo its torsion submodule. ' then M is a quotient of Zrr. so R ®Zrr M is a quotient of R and hence is either R itself or torsion.
