jeunes en arithmétique et variétés algébriques
Program by Yves André

There is a certain flexibility in the choice of the material, because this workshop does not aim at presenting (as usual) the proof of one theorem followed by some applications, but instead a whole colourful landscape with two sides (complex and $p$-adic) and the many passes from one to the other. The talks should therefore concentrate on motivations (analogies, historical sources, examples - as in real history, they should come before the definitions), constructions and principles. Some talks are planned like long walks, others stop at a theorem-shelter; detours and personal viewpoints are encouraged.

Additional Talk
Rigid connections, $F$-isocrystals and integrality
Hélène Esnault

On a smooth complex projective variety, Carlos Simpson conjectures that a rigid integrable connection is motivic. This in particular implies that the monodromy is integral. We prove the integrality conjecture when the connection defines a smooth moduli point. To this aim, we prove that the mod p reduction of a rigid integrable connection has the structure of an isocrystal with Frobenius structure. We also prove that rigid integrable flat connections with vanishing $p$-curvatures are unitary. This allows one to prove new cases of Grothendieck’s $p$-curvature conjecture. Joint work with Michael Groechenig.
