Tóm tắt:
A Zp tower of curves in characteristic p is a sequence C_0, C_1, C_2, ... of smooth projective curves over a perfect field of characteristic p such that C_n is a branched cover of C_{n-1} and C_n is a branched Galois Z/(p^n)-cover of C_0. The genus is a well-understood invariant of algebraic curves, and the genus of C_n can be seen to depend on n in a simple fashion. In characteristic p, there are additional curve invariants like the a-number which are poorly understood. They describe the group-scheme structure of the p-torsion of the Jacobian. I will discuss work with Bryden Cais studying these invariants and suggesting that their growth is also "regular" in Zp towers. This is a new kind of Iwasawa theory for function fields.
