The local lifting problem for $A_4$

Andrew Obus

Vol. 10 (2016), No. 8, 1683–1693

We solve the local lifting problem for the alternating group A4, thus showing that it is a local Oort group. Specifically, if k is an algebraically closed field of characteristic 2, we prove that every A4-extension of k[[s]] lifts to characteristic zero.
