In "Foundations of $p$-adic Teichmüller theory", Mochizuki describes a theory one of whose goals (according to the author) is to generalize Fuchsian uniformization of Riemann surfaces to the $p$-adic context. A quick glance through this book reveals a lot of new concepts (with fancy names!) introduced by Mochizuki.

The question is: what are some landmark papers in this theory (after this textbook)? Did anybody other than Mochizuki and his postdocs/students make contributions to this theory? A less mathematical question: are there any people in Western Europe/U.S. working on this topic in the present?

For example, while I think that Jakob Stix is doing some anabelian geometry (and Mochizuki has made major contributions to it), I am not sure if any of his work is specifically building upon "Foundations of $p$-adic Teichmüller theory".

P.S. Not being an inter-universalist, I do not know whether "Foundations of $p$-adic Teichmüller theory" have anything to do with the IUT. The question, however, is not about IUT. To avoid off-topic debate, let us pretend in this thread that IUT papers do not exist.

    $\begingroup$ I know nothing about the p-adic case (only the classical theory of complex projective structures on Riemann surfaces), but Mathsci net gives a list of 32 papers referring to Mochizuki's book (and not all of these are by Mochizuki himself). $\endgroup$ – Misha Apr 20 at 13:44

    $\begingroup$ What did you get wham you looked up who cited the book on MathSciNet, Zentralblatt, and Google Scholar? That's the obvious thing to do. $\endgroup$ – Dirk Apr 20 at 15:57

    $\begingroup$ @Dirk well, at least MathSciNet is behind a paywall unless you have a good IP address (so I would not say it is "the obvious thing to do"). Google Scholar is entirely free though. $\endgroup$ – schematic_boi Apr 21 at 19:39

    $\begingroup$ ZBMath is free and knows 12 citations to the foundations book (but only shows three works without subscription: zbmath.org/?q=rf%3A0969.14013) $\endgroup$ – Dirk Apr 21 at 20:06
