I am trying to obtain a copy of the following

J.-F. Boutot and H. Carayol, Uniformisation p-adique des courbes de Shimura: les théorèmes de Čerednik et de Drinfel'd , Astérisque No. 196-197 (1991), 7, 45–158 (1992)

According to the SMF website, this is contained in (editor listed as Guy Henniart)

Courbes modulaires et courbes de Shimura (Orsay, 1987/1988). Astérisque No. 196-197 (1991), 7, 45--158 (1992). MR1141456 (93c:11041)

Unfortunately the SMF website says that this is out of print, and I cannot find a copy anywhere. I would appreciate if anyone could tell me how/where to obtain a copy (preferably in electronic form).

  • $\begingroup$ I was surprised to see that Asterisque is not in Numdam. Can somebody in the know explain why? $\endgroup$ – Felipe Voloch Aug 18 '15 at 2:08
  • $\begingroup$ Most Asterisque volumes are not, in my experience. $\endgroup$ – Keerthi Madapusi Pera Aug 18 '15 at 3:09
  • $\begingroup$ Do you have a copy now or not ? I can send you an original copy in French ! $\endgroup$ – Al-Amrani Aug 21 '15 at 17:05

See this question. Drinfeld's "Coverings of p-adic symmetric domains" translated?

Somewhat coincidentally, in a comment regarding the paper of your interest (Boutot and Carayol), Thomas Riepe (Oct 12 '11 at 5:19) writes: "Cameron Franc has translated it into english:"

However, I am unable to get the given link to work, or this one either: http://lordnoron.com/cam/documents/bctranslation.pdf

See also the acceptied answer to this question "Bad" reduction of Shimura curves via dual graphs which has yet another dead link.

The translation itself was announced on his blog: https://cfranc.wordpress.com/2010/01/18/boutot-carayol-translation and at least at that point he had only translated Chapter 2.

  • $\begingroup$ I contacted Cameron Franc and he informed me that he completed the translation, and he supplied me with a copy. He mentioned that he will make it available on his website when he has time, with the caveat that it has not been proofread. $\endgroup$ – Stiofáin Fordham Aug 19 '15 at 23:10
  • $\begingroup$ Just wanted to post that the translation by Franc is now up here: www-personal.umich.edu/~francc/files/bctranslation.pdf $\endgroup$ – knsam Oct 17 '15 at 23:28
