Title: On higher regulators of Picard modular surfaces

Abstract: The Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture relates the leading coefficient of the L-function of an elliptic curve at its central critical point to global arithmetic invariants of the elliptic curve. Beilinson’s conjectures generalize the BSD conjecture to formulas for values of motivic L-functions at non-critical points. In this talk, I will relate motivic cohomology classes, with non-trivial coefficients, of Picard modular surfaces to a non-critical value of the motivic L-function of certain automorphic representations of the group GU(2,1).
