comment orbits of linear algebraic group $G({\Bbb Q}_p)$ acting on subgroups of ${\Bbb Q}_p^n$
Dear Dave, sorry, I made a silly mistake. Is there a reference for what you said above, namely that "$G({\Bbb Q}_p)\times{\Bbb Q}^*_p$ has only finitely many orbits on the set of vector-space lattices whenever $G$ is split, semi-simple, and simply connected, and ρ is faithful and irreducible."? This is the case I need.

comment orbits of linear algebraic group $G({\Bbb Q}_p)$ acting on subgroups of ${\Bbb Q}_p^n$
Dear Dave, oh. It seems the following simple argument works. $L=A({\Bbb Q}{\Bbb Q}\times ... {\Bbb Q})$ is vector-space lattice iff $A^{-1} G({\Bbb Q}_p)A=G({\Bbb Q}_p)$, i.e. $A\in GL({\Bbb Q}^n)$ is in the normaliser of $G({\Bbb Q}_p)$. $<=$ is easy; $=>$: $ A^{-1}Stab(L)A=G({\Bbb Q}_p)\cap GL({\Bbb Q}^n)$; pass to the closures and use $Stab(L)$ is dense in $G(({\Bbb Q}_p)$: $A^{-1}G(({\Bbb Q}_p)A=cl(A^{-1}Stab(L)A)=cl(G({\Bbb Q}_p)\cap GL({\Bbb Q}^n))\subseteq G({\Bbb Q}_p)$.

Dear Dave, thank you! It is interesting and shall take some time for me to digest; but it does solve (probably) my question so I "accepted" your answer.

Thanks! And what about $G=GL_n$, should it not be an exception as well? What I ask is true for $G=GL_n$...

In this case one needs to consider the action of the group of diagonal matrices with non-zero determinant...

Thanks, I've made a few correction. Yes, I consider the action of the group of p-adic points on the subgroups L with these properties. Concerning being dense in either Zariski or p-adic topology, it is unclear what the right question is.

@Venkataramana, thank you, I corrected that. It does seem that the answer might be implied by the theory of arithmetic subgroups, but it feels the question is standard enough to be somewhere in the literature...

comment Is the theory of categories decidable?
On the other hand, there is no reason for the equational fragment of the theory of categories without automorphisms be undecidable, and it is actually decidable, see "mishap.sdf.org/…
