[Full Article (PDF)] [MathSciNet Review (HTML)] [MathSciNet Review (PDF)]

In the present paper, we prove that on a fixed, pointed stable curve over a field of characteristic $p> 0$, there exists a $canonical$ duality between dormant $\mathfrak{sl}_\textrm{n}$-opers ($1 < n < p-1$) and dormant $\mathfrak{sl}_{(p-n)}$-opers, and that there exists a unique (up to isomorphism) dormant $\mathfrak{sl}_{(p-1)}$-oper.

Keywords: $p$-adic Teichmüller theory, pointed stable curves, logarithmic connections, opers, dormant opers, $p$-curvature
