Résumé - Abstract

In this article I define and study the overconvergent rigid fundamental group of a variety over an equicharacteristic local field. This is a non-abelian $(\varphi ,\nabla )$-module over the bounded Robba ring $\mathcal{E}_K^\dagger $, whose underlying unipotent group (after base changing to the Amice ring $\mathcal{E}_K$) is exactly the classical rigid fundamental group. I then use this to prove an equicharacteristic, $p$-adic analogue of Oda’s theorem that a semistable curve over a $p$-adic field has good reduction if and only if the Galois action on its $\ell $-adic unipotent fundamental group is unramified.
