Extensions of almost faithful prime ideals in virtually nilpotent mod-$p$ Iwasawa algebras

William Woods

Vol. 297 (2018), No. 2, 477–509
Abstract

Let G be a nilpotent-by-finite compact p-adic analytic group for some p > 2, and H = FNp(G) be its finite-by-(nilpotent p-valuable) radical. Fix a finite field k of characteristic p, and write kG for the completed group ring of G over k. We show that almost faithful G-stable prime ideals P of kH extend to prime ideals PkG of kG. This is a crucial building block in understanding the prime spectrum of kG.
