  1. I changed the name of the page Frobenius map to Frobenius morphism and added the descriptions à la Demazure to it.

    Now Frobenius map exists in old version which is a temporary cache bug version. Frobenius morphism has a redirect Frobenius morphism which is surely superfluous, while it is missing the redirect o the old name Frobenius map and Frobenious map which should exist there (this way it is very often called in algebraic geometry). I will leave it to you to see/learn how to resolve this typical situation in renaming :)

    Can I suggest as someone that fought a lot with the notation of Demazure that every time we use it to put something on the nLab we update the notation? For example, if I recall correctly Sp kASp_k A just means Spec A (thought of as a k-scheme).

    I have an instiki installation of my own and there never such an issue happened. I deleted the auto-redirects. Clicking ”edit” in ”Frobenius map” gives the Home Page of the nlab. Housekeeping says that this page probably will be deleted automatically.

    Where else do you suggest to update notation - or the presentation of the topic in general? In Demazure Sp kASp_k A as well as SpASp A are used. Since skalar extension- and restriction plays an important role in some details here, to omit the kk in the subscript does not contribute to clarity in these cases - I think.

    You should teach me this, I’d be grateful, if you are in ubuntu ?

    I agree that Spec kSpec_k is better than SpecSpec in such situations: but SpSp is a bit old fashioned in algebraic geometry (SpSp nowdays more often used for some spectra in other areas of mathematics, and occasionally for traces).

    I wasn’t so concerned with the Spec issue. I just wanted to pre-emptively prevent things like the category M kEM_k E (k-functors from k-rings to set??) or the notation O̲ k\underline{O}_k for affine line (just to name a few on the first page of the book).

    M kEM_k E probably stands for something something like Modules for Ring kRing_k in EnsEns, the category of sets, but I agree it’s terrible notation.

    MM, if I remember correctly, stands for “model”. (It is the category of all UU-small rings, where UU is a Grothendieck universe contained in the “real” universe VV.)

    I am not in ubuntu but in mac osx. Following simply the instruction on the instiki site might be successfull if your device has the right underlying architecture (in my case one problem was that instiki needed to be converted into 64 bit format). If you plan to do an instiki installation on a web host you should assure that this server meets the requirements of instiki: Dreamhost which is recommended by the instiki site does not meet this requirements - at least it did not when I tried it and it was not possible to install it there. In the end a friend of mine who is an it-specialist did the installation for me on his own private server.

    But I don’t know if my information concerning this are still up to date since I just see that the instiki installation site has been updated on April 30, 2012 - after my trial. And I see that there is a section on ubuntu on this site.

    M kEM_k E

    M kEM_k E stands for the category of the copresheaves on the category of kk-rings (=rings RR with a specified morphism kRk\to R) M kM_k.

    MM, if I remember correctly, stands for “model”. (It is the category of all UU-small rings, where UU is a Grothendieck universe contained in the “real” universe VV.)

    In ”lectures on pp-divisible groups” such size issues are omitted. Nevetheless this might be the reason for the letter MM. But I think it is not a good notation since it contains no information saying that rings are meant. Also if it stands for ”module” there is information loss…

    Ah. It’s explained briefly at the beginning of [Demazure and Gabriel, Groupes algébriques]. The reason, I think, is that they want to think of a scheme as a functor CRingSet\mathbf{CRing} \to \mathbf{Set}.

    At Frobenius morphism there was a typo in the section In terms of symmetric products:

    where α V\alpha_V was introduced, its domain was given as TS pVTS^p V, while from the lines right below the domain is really meant to be V (p)V^{(p)}.

    I have fixed that.

    But what actually is V (p)V^{(p)}?

    This section also forgets to say what its definition of th Frobenius morphism F XF_X actually is.
