  • Motivic Cohomology of Groups of Order p^3 

    Black, Rebecca (2018)
    In this thesis we compute the motivic cohomology ring (also known as Bloch's higher Chow groups) with finite coefficients for the two nonabelian groups of order $27$, thought of as affine algebraic groups over $\mathbb{C}$. ...
