K.Zainoulline: On Knebusch's Norm Principle for quadratic forms over semi-local rings


Submission: 2003, Apr 25, revised: May 14

We prove the version of Knebusch's Norm principle for simple extensions of semi-local rings. As an application we prove the Grothendieck-Serre's conjecture on principal homogeneous spaces for the split case of the spinor group.
