Using a codimension-$1$ algebraic cycle obtained from the Poincaré line bundle, Beauville defined the Fourier transform on the Chow groups of an abelian variety $A$ and showed that the Fourier transform induces a decomposition of the Chow ring $CH^{*}(A)$. By using a codimension-$2$ algebraic cycle representing the Beauville–Bogomolov class, we give evidence for the existence of a similar decomposition for the Chow ring of hyperKähler varieties deformation equivalent to the Hilbert scheme of length-$2$ subschemes on a K3 surface. We indeed establish the existence of such a decomposition for the Hilbert scheme of length-$2$ subschemes on a K3 surface and for the variety of lines on a very general cubic fourfold.
