Good bounds for the number of $n$-dimensional crystallographic groups ?

Let $s(n)$ denote the number of distinct crystallographic groups in $Isom(\mathbb{R}^n)$. Apparently the best known upper bound so far is $$ s(n)\le e^{e^{4n^2}}, $$ given by Peter Buser in $1985$. On ...

Galois descent for semilinear endomorphisms

Let $K \subset L$ be a finite Galois extension, $\sigma$ an automorphism of $L$ (not necessarily fixing $K$) and let $E$ be a finite-dimensional vector space over $L$ together with an $\sigma$-linear ...

Two different definitions of $\sigma$-L-spaces in Kottwitz I and II

In his papers "Isocrystals with additional structure" I and II, Kottwitz defines the notion of $\sigma$-$L$-spaces. In the first one the situation is the following $k$ an algebraically closed field ...

$\sigma$-conjugate iff $p$-adically close

First some notations. Let $p$ be a prime, $k$ a perfect field of characteristic $p$, $W=W(k)$ the ring of Witt vectors over $k$, $\sigma : W \rightarrow W$ the Frobenius, $R$ a commutative ...

Is the tangent space functor from PD formal groups to Lie algebras an equivalence?

The previous version of this question was rather badly broken, and I hope this version makes some sense. There have been a few questions on MathOverflow about how much representation-theoretic ...
