Representability of Moduli Problems

Representability of Moduli Problems

(p.91) Chapter Two Representability of Moduli Problems
Arithmetic Compactifications of PEL-Type Shimura Varieties

Kai-Wen Lan

Princeton University Press

This chapter elaborates on the representability of the moduli problems defined in the previous chapter. The treatment here is biased towards the prorepresentability of local moduli and Artin's criterion of algebraic stacks. The geometric invariant theory or the theory of Barsotti–Tate groups has been set aside: the argument is very elementary and might be considered outdated by the experts in this area. The chapter, however, discusses the Kodaira–Spencer morphisms of abelian schemes with PEL structures, which are best understood via the study of deformation theory. It also considers the proof of the formal smoothness of local moduli functors, illustrating how the linear algebraic assumptions are used.

Keywords:   representability, moduli problems, prorepresentability, algebraic stacks, Kodaira–Spencer morphisms, deformation theory, local moduli functors, linear algebraic assumptions
