# Jie Wang : The primitive cohomology of the theta divisor of an abelian fivefold

The primitive cohomology of the theta divisor of a principally polarized abelian variety of dimension $g$ is a Hodge structure of level $g-3$. The Hodge conjecture predicts that it is contained in the image, under the Abel-Jacobi map, of the cohomology of a family of curves in the theta divisor. In this talk, I will explain how one can use the Prym map to show that this version of the Hodge conjecture is true for the theta divisor of a general abelian fivefold. This is joint work with Izadi and Tam\'as.
