Alexander Merkurjev: Unramified degree three invariants of reductive groups

Submission: 2014, Nov 24

We prove that if $G$ is a reductive group over an algebraically closed field , then for a prime integer $p$ different from the characteristic of the field, the group of degree 3 unramified Galois cohomology of the function field of the classifying space of $G$ with coefficients in $Q_p/Z_p$ is trivial if $p$ is odd or the commutator subgroup of $G$ is simple.
