The local lifting problem for $A_4$

### Andrew Obus

Vol. 10 (2016), No. 8, 1683–1693
##### Abstract

We solve the local lifting problem for the alternating group ${A}_{4}$, thus showing that it is a local Oort group. Specifically, if $k$ is an algebraically closed field of characteristic $2$, we prove that every ${A}_{4}$-extension of $k\left[\left[s\right]\right]$ lifts to characteristic zero.
