Generic Formal Fibers in Characteristic p by Prof. Susan Loepp

Mathematics and Statistics Department Colloquium

Abstract:  If a complete local ring has characteristic zero, we know exactly when it is the completion of a local ring whose generic formal fiber has countably many maximal elements.  When the characteristic of a complete local ring is p > 0, however, it is unknown when it is the completion of a local ring whose generic formal fiber has even one maximal element.  In this talk, we will discuss the progress made on this open question by the 2013 SMALL Commutative
Algebra group.
