Abstract

We consider p-divisible groups (also called Barsotti-Tate groups) in characteristic p, abelian
varieties, their deformations, and we draw some conclusions.
For a p-divisible group in characteristic p, we can define its Newton polygon. This is
invariant under isogeny. For an abelian variety the Newton Polygon of its p-divisible group is
symmetric. We are interested
