The points of $\operatorname{Spa}\mathbb{Z}_p$

$\DeclareMathOperator\Spa{Spa}$What are the points of $\Spa\mathbb{Z}_p$? I read in Scholze-Weinstein that this adic spectrum consists of 2 points, a special point, which corresponds to the pullback ...

Why are there three kinds of non-archimedean geometry?

It may seem silly to ask "Why are there three types of non-Archimedean geometry?", that would be like asking why there are three (and even more) different Weil cohomologies. So I have to ...

Some questions from the paper by Scholze-Weinstein

The following is from the paper by Scholze-Weinstein on moduli of $p$ divisible groups. My question is from a part of Lemma 4.1.7: If $R$ is a semiperfect ring, then the canonical map $W(R^{\flat}) \...

Relative homology in Fargues-Scholze paper

if $f:X\to Y$ is a map of small v-stacks, Scholze and Fargues define relative homology as the left adjoint to the $f^{\star}$. They say the left adjoint exist because $f$ is a slice in $v$-site (they ...

Chevalley’s affineness criterion for perfectoid space

Chevalley’s affineness criterion says that if $f: X\to Y$ is surjective and finite, $Y$ is Noetherian and $X$ is affine then $Y$ is also affine. The usual proof uses Serre's criterion and Noetherian ...

Does the map $\theta[1/p]: A_{\mathrm{inf}} \otimes \mathbb Q_p \to \mathbb C_p$ split?

This question might be very elementary to someone who knows p-adic hodge theory/perfectoid stuff etc. Recall that $\mathbb C_p = \hat{\overline{\mathbb Q_p}}$ and $\mathbb C_p^\flat$ is it's tilt. We ...

flat resolutions of almost modules?

Recall the set-up in 2.4.10 of Almost Ring Theory by Ofer Gabber and Lorenzo Ramero: $V$ is a commutative unital ring. $\newcommand{\gm}{{\mathfrak m}}\gm$ is an ideal in $V$ such that $\gm^2 = \gm$. ...

An explicit isomorphism $K^\times/K^{\times p} \cong K^\flat/\wp K^\flat$ where $K \supset \mu_p$ is perfectoid field of mixed characteristic $(0, p)$

Let $K$ be a perfectoid field of mixed characteristic $(0, p)$, i.e. $K$ has characteristic $0$ but its residue field has characteristic $p$. Further suppose that $K$ contains all the $p$th roots of ...

Perfectoid approach to resolution of singularities in char $p$

Since perfectoid techniques have built a bridge between char $0$ and char $p$ worlds, it is conceivable that they can be applied to resolution of singularities in char $p$ using their successful ...

Proposition 5.13 (ii) in Scholze's Perfectoid Spaces

In Proposition 5.13 (ii) in Scholze's Perfectoid Spaces, we have $R \to S$ a morphism of $\Bbb F_p$-algebras and the assumption that the relative Frobenius $\Phi_{S/R}$ induces an isomorphism $R_{(\...

Applications of the Weight Monodromy conjecture

I think of the Weight Monodromy conjecture as an analogue of the Weil conjectures in the case of bad reduction. The Weil conjectures of course have lots of applications, from point counting to ...

Is being perfectoid a local property?
