Exponential generation and largeness for compact $p$-adic Lie groups

Michael Larsen

Vol. 4 (2010), No. 8, 1029–1038

Given a fixed integer n, we consider closed subgroups G of GLn(p), where p is sufficiently large in terms of n. Assuming that the identity component of the Zariski closure G of G in GLn,p does not admit any nontrivial torus as quotient group, we give a condition on the ( modp) reduction of G which guarantees that G is of bounded index in GLn(p) G(p).
