Logarithmic ramifications via pull-back to curves (English)
[ Abstract ]
Let X be a smooth variety over a perfect field of characteristic p>0, D a strict normal crossing divisor of X, U the complement of D in X, j:U—>X the canonical injection, and F a locally constant and constructible sheaf of F_l-modules on U (l is a prime number different from p). Using Abbes and Saito’s logarithmic ramification theory, we define a Swan divisor SW(j_!F), which supported on D. Let i:C-->X be a quasi-finite morphism from a smooth curve C to X. Following T. Saito’s idea, we compare the pull-back of SW(j_!F) to C with the Swan divisor of the pull-back of j_!F to C. It answers an expectation of Esnault and Kerz and generalizes the same result of Barrientos for rank 1 sheaves. As an application, we obtain a lower semi-continuity property for Swan divisors of an l-adic sheaf on a smooth fibration, which gives a generalization of Deligne and Laumon’s lower semi-continuity property of Swan conductors of l-adic sheaves on relative curves to higher relative dimensions. This application is a supplement of the semi-continuity of total dimension of vanishing cycles due to T. Saito and the lower semi-continuity of total dimension divisors due to myself and E. Yang.
