This second volume contains chapters 3 and 4 [cf. Astérisque 314. (Paris): Société Mathématique de France. (2007; Zbl 1146.14001)]. In chapter 3 the construction of nearby motive functors \({\Psi}_{f}\) is given. These functors are analogous to the nearby cycle functors in étale cohomology. In section 3.1 the author introduces a notion of a system of specialization and derives some formal properties of it. Section 3.2 is devoted to the construction of new systems of specializations out of the given diagram of schemes and a system of specialization. The construction of the nearby functors is a particular case of this procedure. In section 3.3 the most important theorems concerning systems of specializations and nearby functors are established. In particular the effect of the functor \({\Psi}_{f}\) for the case when \(f\) has semistable reduction is computed. In section 3.4 and 3.5 two systems of specialization \(\mathcal\Gamma\) and \({\Psi}\) are studied. It is shown that \({\Psi}_{f}\) preserve constructible motives and commute with external products and duality. In section 3.6 the monodromy operator is defined and it is proven that this operator is nilpotent.
Chapter 4 is devoted to the construction in full details of the homotopy category of \(S\)-schemes. It relies on the works of F. Morel and V. Voevodsky [Publ. Math., Inst. Hautes Étud. Sci. 90, 45–143 (1999; Zbl 0983.14007)], [J. F. Jardine, J. Pure Appl. Algebra 47, 35–87 (1987; Zbl 0624.18007), Doc. Math., J. DMV 5, 445–553 (2000; Zbl 0969.19004)], M. Hoovey [J. Pure Appl. Algebra 165, No. 1, 63–127 (2001; Zbl 1008.55006)] and others.
