Étale homotopy sections of algebraic varieties

Abstract:

We define and study the fundamental pro-finite 2-groupoid of varieties X defined over a field k. This is a higher algebraic invariant of a scheme X, analogous to the higher fundamental path 2-groupoids as defined for topological spaces. This invariant is related to previously defined invariants, for example the absolute Galois group of a field, and Grothendieck’s étale fundamental group.

The special case of Brauer-Severi varieties is considered, in which case a “sections conjecture”...
