A note on logarithmic growth of solutions of $p$-adic differential equations without solvability
Pages: 1527 – 1557
For a $p$-adic differential equation solvable in an open disc (in a $p$-adic sense), around 1970, Dwork proves that the solutions satisfy a certain growth condition on the boundary. Dwork also conjectures that a similar phenomenon should be observed without assuming the solvability. In this paper, we verify Dwork’s conjecture in the rank two case, which is the first non-trivial result on the conjecture. The proof is an application of Kedlaya’s decomposition theorem of $p$-adic differential equations defined over annulus.
