A nonarchimedean Ax–Lindemann theorem

Antoine Chambert-Loir and François Loeser

Vol. 11 (2017), No. 9, 1967–1999

Motivated by the André–Oort conjecture, Pila has proved an analogue of the Ax–Lindemann theorem for the uniformization of classical modular curves. In this paper, we establish a similar theorem in nonarchimedean geometry. Precisely, we give a geometric description of subvarieties of a product of hyperbolic Mumford curves such that the irreducible components of their inverse image by the Schottky uniformization are algebraic, in some sense. Our proof uses a p-adic analogue of the Pila–Wilkie theorem due to Cluckers, Comte and Loeser, and requires that the relevant Schottky groups have algebraic entries.
