Title:The Strong CM Lifting Problem
Seminar:Algebra and Number Theory Seminar
Speaker:Taisong Jing, Penn State University
It is known that an abelian variety over a finite field may not admit a lifting to an abelian variety with complex multiplication in characteristic 0. The question of strong CM lifting (sCML) asks whether we can kill the obstructions to a CM lifting by requiring the whole ring of integers in the CM field act on the abelian variety. I will give counterexamples to question (sCML), prove the answer to question (sCML) is affirmative under certain assumptions on the CM field, and explain some follow-up problems that I have been working on.
