    Abstract: Shimura varieties associated to groups of unitary similitudes are well-known to be closely related to moduli spaces of abelian varieties with additional structure. However, only under very favorable circumstances do these moduli schemes yield arithmetic models of these Shimura varieties, as was proved by Kottwitz. I will show that by a small central modification of the unitary group, one obtains Shimura varieties with better properties.
