Rojtman’s theorem for normal schemes
Pages: 1129 – 1144
We show that Rojtman’s theorem holds for normal schemes: For every reduced normal scheme $X$ of finite type over an algebraically closed field $k$, the torsion subgroup of the zero’th Suslin homology is isomorphic to the torsion subgroup of the $k$-rational points of the albanese variety of $X$ (the universal object for morphisms to semi-abelian varieties).
