The p-adic monodromy group of abelian varieties over global function fields of characteristic p

We prove an analogue of the Tate isogeny conjecture and the
semi-simplicity conjecture for overconvergent crystalline Dieudonne modules
of abelian varieties defined over global function fields of characteristic
p, combining methods of de Jong and Faltings. As a corollary we deduce that
the monodromy groups of such overconvergent crystalline Dieudonne modules
are reductive, and after base change to the field of complex numbers they
are the same as the monodromy groups of Galois representations on the
corresponding l-adic Tate modules, for l different from p.
