Need Help... I need help understanding how if X is a abelian variety, and n_x : X > X is defined by x goes to nx (n an integer), then the kernel of n_x, call it X_n, is isomophic to (Z/nZ)^g if the charecteristic of the field you are working in is p and p does not divide n (note that g is the dimension of X)...if anyone has seen this stuff before can you help me understand this.
