# Deligne’s integrality theorem in unequal characteristic and rational points over finite fields (with an Appendix by Pierre Deligne and Hélène Esnault)

### Abstract

If $V$ is a smooth projective variety defined over a local field $K$ with finite residue field, so that its étale cohomology over the algebraic closure $\bar{K}$ is supported in codimension 1, then the mod $p$ reduction of a projective regular model carries a rational point. As a consequence, if the Chow group of 0-cycles of $V$ over a large algebraically closed field is trivial, then the mod $p$ reduction of a projective regular model carries a rational point.
