Abstract

In this paper we prove that for any connected reductive algebraic group G and a large enough prime l, there are continuous homomorphisms

Gal( ̄) G( ̄l)

with Zariski-dense image, in particular we produce the first such examples for SLn,Sp2n,Spinn,E6sc and E7sc. To do this, we start with a mod-l representation of Gal( ̄) related to the Weyl group of G and use a variation of Stefan Patrikis’ generalization of a method of Ravi Ramakrishna to deform it to characteristic zero.
