Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

2 Scopus citations


We construct toroidal and minimal compactifications, with expected properties concerning stratifications and formal local structures, for all integral models of PEL-type Shimura varieties defined by taking normalizations over the splitting models considered by Pappas and Rapoport. (These include, in particular, all the normal flat splitting models they considered.)
