Philippe Gille (Lyon-Bucharest) - New homogeneous spaces with a 0-cycle of degree one and without rational points

http://math.univ-lyon1.fr/homes-www/gille/

This is a report on joint work with C. Beli (Bucharest) and T.-Y. Lee (Lausanne). Given a connected affine algebraic group G defined over a field k, B. Totaro raised the question whether a homogeneous space X under G having a 0-cycle of degree one has a rational point. The question is widely open for principal homogeneous spaces and there are counterexamples by Florence and Parimala respectively with finite stabilizers and parabolic stabilizers. The goal of this talk is to present a new class of homogeneous spaces without rational points but with quadratic and cubic points. Those homogeneous spaces are geometrically isomorphic to G/T , that is the quotient of a group G of type G2 by a maximal torus.
