  • The aim of this thesis is to provide an exposition to Mochizuki and Hoshi's approach to birational anabelian geometry of mixed characteristic local fields.
    In the introductory chapter, we begin by recalling the relevant backgrounds on the Grothendieck conjectures on the étale fundamental groups and their morphisms.
    Next, we review mixed characteristic local fields and their local class field theory.
    This leads us to derive that many invariants of a mixed characteristic local field can be reconstructed from its Galois group, but not the field itself.
    We then set out to demonstrate that isomorphisms between mixed characteristic local fields, which preserve certain arithmetic structures such as the ramification filtration or the class of Hodge-Tate representation, are induced by isomorphisms between the fields.
    We provide technical facts on Galois representations in support of this argument.
