Abstract

We study, locally on a curve of characteristic p > 0, the relation between the log-growth filtration and the Frobenius slope filtration for F-isocrystals, which we will indicate as φ-∇-modules, both at the generic point and at the special point. We prove that a bounded φ-∇-module at the generic point is a direct sum of pure φ-∇-modules. By this splitting of Frobenius slope filtration for bounded modules we will introduce a filtration for φ-∇-modules (PBQ filtration). We solve our conjectures of comparison of the log-growth filtra-tion and the Frobenius slope filtration at the special point for particular φ-∇-modules (HPBQ modules). Moreover we prove the analogous comparison conjecture for PBQ modules at the generic point. These comparison conjectures were stated in our previous work [CT09]. Using PBQ filtrations for φ-∇-modules, we conclude that our conjecture of comparison of the log-growth filtration and the Frobenius slope filtration at the special point implies Dwork's conjecture, that is, the special log-growth polygon is above the generic log-growth polygon including the coincidence of both end points.
