The Convergent Topos in Characteristic p
The purpose of this note is to investigate some of the foundational questions concerning convergent cohomology as introduced in [?] and [?], using the language and techniques of Grothendieck topologies. In particular, if X is a scheme of finite type over a perfect field k of characteristic p and with Witt ring W, we define the “convergent topos (X/W) conv ,” and we study the cohomology of its structure sheaf O X/W and of K X := Q ⊗ O X/W . Since the topos (X/W) conv is not noetherian, formation of cohomology does not commute with tensor products, and these are potentially quite different.
