Prime ideals in mod-p Iwasawa algebras Woods, Billy


Let G be a compact p-adic analytic group, k a finite field of characteristic p, and kG the completed group algebra. We outline some of what is known about the structure of this ring and its minimal prime ideals, and sketch a proof that, in the case when G is virtually nilpotent, kG is a catenary ring.
