Zero loci of admissible normal functions with torsion singularities Academic Article uri icon


  • We show that the zero locus of a normal function on a smooth complex algebraic variety S is algebraic provided that the normal function extends to an admissible normal function on a smooth compactification such that the divisor at infinity is also smooth. This result, which has also been obtained recently by M. Saito using a different method [22], generalizes a previous result proved by the authors for admissible normal functions on curves [4]. 2009.
