The subject of p-adic uniformization of Shimura varieties was started by Cherednik who proved that Shimura curves attached to a quaternion algebra that is ramified at p admits p-adic uniformization. Drinfeld opened up the field by giving a moduli interpretation of Cherednik’s result in a special case. Generalizations of these results are due to Rapoport/Zink, Boutot/Zink and Varshavsky. Very recently, Kudla and I added a new class of Shimura varieties to the list of cases with p-adic uniformization. I will explain the basic principles behind these results.
