Normal Functions and the Hodge Conjecture

Abstract: The theory of normal functions and the
Hodge conjecture have their origin in the study
of algebraic cycles by Lefschetz and Poincare.
I will sketch the history of the subject and
discuss some of my recent work on singularities
of normal functions to the Hodge conjecture
and the zero locus of a normal function to
a conjectural filtration of Bloch and Beilinson.
