Abstract:

Unitary Shimura varieties are moduli spaces of abelian

varieties with extra structure. Rapoport-Zink spaces (moduli spaces of

p-divisible groups with extra structure) are key tools in studying the

supersingular loci of these Shimura varieties. In this talk, we'll

discuss the geometry of the GL(4) Rapoport-Zink space. As an

application, we'll also discuss the geometry of the supersingular loci

of some particular unitary Shimura varieties.
