Given an F-crystal C over a scheme S of positive characteristic p, one can associate many reduced locally closed subschemes T of S defined by the property that a suitable invariant of F-crystals is constant on the fibres of C over points of S. A basic problem is to study different properties of such locally closed subschemes T. In this talk, we present a survey of purity results for locally closed subschemes T of S, including some of them which were obtained by us and by the graduate student Jinghao Li.
