The Picard group of Brauer-Severi varieties

Eslam Badr, Francesc Bars, Elisa Lorenzo García

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


© 2018 Badr et al., published by De Gruyter. In this paper, we provide explicit generators for the Picard groups of cyclic Brauer-Severi varieties defined over the base field. In particular,we provide such generators for all Brauer-Severi surfaces. To produce these generators we use the theory of twists of smooth plane curves.
