Both reduction steps are similar in nature, although the second one is much more subtle; they consist of dividing D into three regions, of which only the middle one is affected by the coplactic operation, and showing that U and V have a similar division.

Then C ′ also has good reduction, and so C ′ [p∞ ]0 /O → C [p∞ ]0 /O is an epimorphism of p-divisible groups over Spec O.

A(Q) if A has good reduction at all primes above p. (Recall that the prime-to-p division hul l of Γ0 in A(Q) is the group of all x ∈ A(Q) such that there exists n ∈ Z \ pZ with nx ∈ Γ0 .) On the other hand, by Remark 2.13, if A is deﬁned over Q, then Γ is of inﬁnite rank.
