Abstract: If X is a smooth projective variety over a number field, the Hodge and Tate conjectures describe how to see the subvarieties of X in the cohomology of X. We explore the role that certain automorphic representations, called algebraic Hecke characters, can play in understanding which cohomology classes of X arise from subvarieties. We use this to deduce the Hodge and Tate conjectures for certain self-products of varieties, including some self-products of K3 surfaces.

This is joint work with J. Lang.
