A converse to Mazur’s inequality for split classical groups. (English) Zbl 1054.14059
Summary: Given a lattice in an isocrystal, Mazur’s inequality states that the Newton point of the isocrystal is less than or equal to the invariant measuring the relative position of the lattice and its transform under Frobenius. Conversely, it is known that any potential invariant allowed by Mazur’s inequality actually arises from some lattice. These can be regarded as statements about the group \(GL_n\). The author proves an analogous converse theorem for all split classical groups.
