In recent years, Ardakov and Wadsley have computed dimension estimates for coadmissible KG-modules, where G is a compact p-adic analytic group and K is a field of very good characteristic p. My recent work has focused on extending these results to cases where the characteristic of K is bad. The classical proof relies on fundamental geometric properties of the dual nilcone of a semisimple Lie algebra; in particular, finding a nice desingularisation of the nilcone and demonstrating that it is normal. I will discuss the importance of these properties, and explain recent progress towards extending these results in cases where the prime p is ‘adequate’.
