A brief note concerning hard Lefschetz for Chow groups
We formulate a conjectural hard Lefschetz property
for Chow groups, and prove this in some special cases: roughly
speaking, for varieties with finitedimensional motive, and
for varieties whose selfproduct has vanishing middledimensional
Griffiths group. An appendix includes related statements that
follow from results of Vial.

Homological Planes in the Grothendieck Ring of Varieties
In this note, we identify, in the Grothendieck group of complex
varieties $K_0(\mathrm Var_\mathbf{C})$, the classes of $\mathbf{Q}$homological
planes. Precisely, we prove that a connected smooth affine complex
algebraic surface $X$ is a $\mathbf{Q}$homological plane if
and only if $[X]=[\mathbf{A}^2_\mathbf{C}]$ in the ring $K_0(\mathrm Var_\mathbf{C})$
and $\mathrm{Pic}(X)_\mathbf{Q}:=\mathrm{Pic}(X)\otimes_\mathbf{Z}\mathbf{Q}=0$.

On the Comaximal Graph of a Commutative Ring
Let $R$ be a commutative ring with $1$. In [P. K. Sharma, S. M.
Bhatwadekar, A note on graphical representation of rings, J.
Algebra 176(1995) 124127], Sharma and Bhatwadekar defined a
graph on $R$, $\Gamma(R)$, with vertices as elements of $R$, where
two distinct vertices $a$ and $b$ are adjacent if and only if $Ra
+ Rb = R$. In this paper, we consider a subgraph $\Gamma_2(R)$ of
$\Gamma(R)$ which consists of nonunit elements. We investigate
the behavior of $\Gamma_2(R)$ and $\Gamma_2(R) \setminus \operatorname{J}(R)$,
where $\operatorname{J}(R)$ is the Jacobson radical of $R$. We associate the
ring properties of $R$, the graph properties of $\Gamma_2(R)$ and
the topological properties of $\operatorname{Max}(R)$. Diameter, girth, cycles
and dominating sets are investigated and the algebraic and the
topological characterizations are given for graphical properties
of these graphs.
