On lower ramification subgroups and canonical subgroups

Shin Hattori

Vol. 8 (2014), No. 2, 303–330

Let p be a rational prime, k be a perfect field of characteristic p and K be a finite totally ramified extension of the fraction field of the Witt ring of k. Let G be a finite flat commutative group scheme over OK killed by some p-power. In this paper, we prove a description of ramification subgroups of G via the Breuil–Kisin classification, generalizing the author’s previous result on the case where G is killed by p 3. As an application, we also prove that the higher canonical subgroup of a level n truncated Barsotti–Tate group G over OK coincides with lower ramification subgroups of G if the Hodge height of G is less than (p 1)pn, and the existence of a family of higher canonical subgroups improving a previous result of the author.
