Nilpotence order growth of recursion operators in characteristic $p$

Anna Medvedovsky

Vol. 12 (2018), No. 3, 693–722

We prove that the killing rate of certain degree-lowering “recursion operators” on a polynomial algebra over a finite field grows slower than linearly in the degree of the polynomial attacked. We also explain the motivating application: obtaining a lower bound for the Krull dimension of a local component of a big mod p Hecke algebra in the genus-zero case. We sketch the application for p = 2 and p = 3 in level one. The case p = 2 was first established in by Nicolas and Serre in 2012 using different methods.
