### Is there a notion of tensor product of perfect bases of representations of Lie algebras?

Berenstein and Kazhdan define perfect bases as an "unquantized" version of crystal bases. A perfect basis is roughly a basis with a crystal structure such that $E_i\cdot v=\mathbb{C}\cdot ...

### 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 ...

### $\sigma$-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 ...

### 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 ...
