Perfectoid covers of abelian varieties and the weight-monodromy conjecture
Peter Wear, Department of Mathematics, UC San Diego,

The theory of perfectoid spaces was initially developed by Scholze to prove new cases of the weight-monodromy conjecture. He constructed perfectoid covers of toric varieties that allowed him to translate results from characteristic p to characteristic 0. We will give an overview of Scholze's method, then explain how to use an analogous construction for abelian varieties to prove the weight-monodromy conjecture for complete intersections in abelian varieties.
