A p-adic analogue of Beilinson's conjectures for Hecke characters of imaginary quadratic fields, by Thomas Geisser

In this paper we first show that K-groups with coefficients factor over the category of Chow motives.

Following ideas of Deninger and Soule we then construct special elements in K-groups with coefficients of Chow motives associated to Hecke characters of imaginary quadratic fields. Finally we define a regulator map and prove that the cokernel of this regulator map is related to special values of p-adic L-functions.

A revised version of this preprint was placed here November 27, 1997.
