Punctured tubular neighborhoods and stable homotopy at infinity

Abstract : We initiate a study of punctured tubular neighborhoods and homotopy theory at infinity in motivic settings. We use the six functors formalism to give an intrinsic definition of the stable motivic homotopy type at infinity of an algebraic variety. Our main computational tools include cdh-descent for normal crossing divisors, Euler classes, Gysin maps, and homotopy purity. Under-adic realization, the motive at infinity recovers a formula for vanishing cycles due to Rapoport-Zink; similar results hold for Steenbrink's limiting Hodge structures and Wildeshaus' boundary motives. Under the topological Betti realization, the stable motivic homotopy type at infinity of an algebraic variety recovers the singular complex at infinity of the corresponding topological space. We coin the notion of homotopically smooth morphisms with respect to a motivic ∞-category and use it to show a generalization to virtual vector bundles of Morel-Voevodsky's purity theorem, which yields an escalated form of Atiyah duality with compact support. Further, we study a quadratic refinement of intersection degrees, taking values in motivic cohomotopy groups. For relative surfaces, we show the stable motivic homotopy type at infinity witnesses a quadratic version of Mumford's plumbing construction for smooth complex algebraic surfaces. Our construction and computation of stable motivic links of Du Val singularities on normal surfaces is expressed entirely in terms of Dynkin diagrams. In characteristic p > 0, this improves Artin's analysis on Du Val singularities through étale local fundamental groups. The main results in the paper are also valid for-adic sheaves, mixed Hodge modules, and more generally motivic ∞-categories.
