Alexander Merkurjev: Motivic decomposition of certain special linear groups

Submission: 2014, Mar 05

We compute the motive of the algebraic group G=SL1(D) for a central simple algebra D of prime degree over a perfect field. As an application we determine certain motivic cohomology groups and differentials in the motivic spectral sequence of G.
