Honda, Taira, On the Formal Structure of the Jacobian Variety of the Fermat Curve over a $p$-adic Integer Ring

On the Formal Structure of the Jacobian Variety of the Fermat Curve over a $p$-adic Integer Ring, Symposia Mathematica Volume XI (Volume 11).

This paper of Honda was very hard for me to track down. It was not previously available digitally. I found it in a retired library volume in a thrift store in England. Hopefully, this digital copy will make it easier for others to enjoy Honda’s incredible insight and understanding of how to create power series in one variable with high amounts of arithmetic information, and in general of higher height formal group laws.

Hidden Structure

Beauty wilts
and love will flucture
what remains
is hidden structure

blushing primes
sly chiding knots
intertwine
betwixt our thoughts

creation
lives to create
chipping from
the ob’lisk slate

talk amoungst
our little selves
speculating
filling shelves

search we will
and see we’ll not
blindness is
our earthly lot

but the voice
of the void is vast
notice it
through the nets we cast
