The Mumford--Tate Conjecture for the Product of an Abelian Surface and a K3 Surface

The Mumford--Tate conjecture is a precise way of saying that the Hodge structure on singular cohomology conveys the same information as the Galois representation on $\ell$-adic étale cohomology, for an algebraic variety over a finitely generated field of characteristic 0. This paper presents a proof of the Mumford--Tate conjecture in degree 2 for the product of an abelian surface and a K3 surface.
