11. Formal period $n$

Let $K_n=K$(points of formal period n) and let $G_n=K_n/K.$ Let \[\rho_n:G_N\rightarrow \mathbb{Z}/n\mathbb{Z} \wr S_m \] (or a subgroup fixed by $\text{Aut}(f))$ where $m\approx \deg f^n/n.$
    1. Problem 11.1.

      [Silverman] When is the image maximal?
        • Problem 11.2.

          Describe $K_n\cap K_{n'}.$ Prove that this is small.
