The authors introduce a stratification on the space of symplectic flags on the de Rham bundle of the universal principally polarized abelian variety in positive characteristic. They study some geometric properties of this stratification, such as irreducibility of the strata, and they calculate the cycle classes. Then they relate this stratification with the E-O stratification on the moduli space of principally polarized abelian varieties of a fixed dimension and derive properties of the latter.
