A note on relative duality for Voevodsky motives, by Luca Barbieri-Viale and Bruno Kahn

Let X be an n-dimensional smooth proper variety over a field admitting resolution of singularities, and Y,Z two disjoint closed subsets of X. We establish an isomorphism

M(X-Z,Y) isomorphic to M(X-Y,Z)^*(n)[2n]

in Voevodsky's triangulated category of geometric motives. Here, M(X-Z,Y) is the motive of X -Z relative to its closed subset Y.
