Hodge symplectic forms

Posted by Martin Orr on Saturday, 18 December 2010 at 15:00

Both the Hodge structure and the Tate module of an abelian variety come with symplectic forms which are (almost) preserved by the action of the relevant group (Mumford-Tate or Galois group). The form on the Tate module, called the Weil pairing, will require some preparation. So in this post I will construct the Hodge symplectic forms (also called the Riemann forms) on the Hodge structure. Next time I will discuss some further properties of Hodge forms.
