This chapter looks at mixed-characteristic shtukas. Much of the theory of mixed-characteristic shtukas is motivated by the structures appearing in (integral) p-adic Hodge theory. The chapter assesses Drinfeld's shtukas and local shtukas. In the mixed characteristic setting, X will be replaced with Spa Zp. The test objects S will be drawn from Perf, the category of perfectoid spaces in characteristic p. For an object, a shtuka over S should be a vector bundle over an adic space, together with a Frobenius structure. The product is not meant to be taken literally (if so, one would just recover S), but rather it is to be interpreted as a fiber product over a deeper base. Motivated by this, the chapter then defines an analytic adic space and shows that its associated diamond is the appropriate product of sheaves on Perf.Less

This chapter looks at mixed-characteristic shtukas. Much of the theory of mixed-characteristic shtukas is motivated by the structures appearing in (integral) *p*-adic Hodge theory. The chapter assesses Drinfeld's shtukas and local shtukas. In the mixed characteristic setting, *X* will be replaced with Spa **Z**p. The test objects *S* will be drawn from Perf, the category of perfectoid spaces in characteristic *p*. For an object, a shtuka over *S* should be a vector bundle over an adic space, together with a Frobenius structure. The product is not meant to be taken literally (if so, one would just recover *S*), but rather it is to be interpreted as a fiber product over a deeper base. Motivated by this, the chapter then defines an analytic adic space and shows that its associated diamond is the appropriate product of sheaves on Perf.

This book presents an important breakthrough in arithmetic geometry. In 2014, this book's author delivered a series of lectures at the University of California, Berkeley, on new ideas in the theory of p-adic geometry. Building on his discovery of perfectoid spaces, the author introduced the concept of “diamonds,” which are to perfectoid spaces what algebraic spaces are to schemes. The introduction of diamonds, along with the development of a mixed-characteristic shtuka, set the stage for a critical advance in the discipline. This book shows that the moduli space of mixed-characteristic shtukas is a diamond, raising the possibility of using the cohomology of such spaces to attack the Langlands conjectures for a reductive group over a p-adic field. The book follows the informal style of the original Berkeley lectures, with one chapter per lecture. It explores p-adic and perfectoid spaces before laying out the newer theory of shtukas and their moduli spaces. Points of contact with other threads of the subject, including p-divisible groups, p-adic Hodge theory, and Rapoport-Zink spaces, are thoroughly explained.Less
