Abstract

We prove the congruence relation for the mod-$p$ reduction of Shimura varieties associated to a unitary similitude group $GU(n-1,1)$ over $\mathbb{Q}$, when $p$ is inert and $n$ odd. The case when $n$ is even was obtained by T. Wedhorn and O. B?ltel, as a special case of a result of B. Moonen, when the $\mu$-ordinary locus of the $p$-isogeny space is dense. This condition fails in our case. We show that every supersingular irreducible component of the special fiber of $p\textrm{-}\mathscr{I}sog$ is annihilated by a degree one polynomial in the Frobenius element $F$, which implies the congruence relation.
