The degree zero part of the motivic polylogarithm and the Deligne-Beilinson cohomology

8 February 2016

Last year, G. Kings and D. Rossler related the degree zero part of the polylogarithm
on abelian schemes pol^0 with another object previously defined by V. Maillot and D.
Rossler. More precisely, they proved that the canonical class of currents constructed
by Maillot and Rossler provides us with the realization of pol^0 in analytic Deligne
I will show that, adding some properness conditions, it is possible to give a
refinement of Kings and Rossler’s result involving Deligne-Beilinson cohomology
instead of analytic Deligne cohomology.
