Chow motives without projectivity, by J. Wildeshaus

In paper 843, Bondarko recently defined the notion of weight structure, and proved that the category DgM of geometrical motives, as defined and studied by Voevodsky, Suslin and Friedlander, is canonically equipped with such a structure. Building on this result, and under a condition on the weights avoided by the boundary motive, we describe a method to construct intrinsically in DgM a motivic version of interior cohomology of smooth, but possibly non-projective schemes. In a sequel to this work, this method will be applied to Shimura varieties.
