  • We first recall the filtration on the higher Chow group of a complex smooth projective variety X as done by J. Lewis, and separately by M. Saito / M. Asakura and explain the various invariants (Mumford-Griffiths and de Rham), as well as the notion of arithmetic normal functions due to M. Kerr and J. Lewis. As in the case of Griffiths' use of normal functions to detect interesting cycles, we do the same thing for the higher Chow groups.
