Abstract: This article studies the variety of nilpotent $ p$-curvature of linear differential operators on the sphere with $ m + 1$ singularities. We shall show that for a given set of exponents $ \in {{\mathbf{F}}_p}$ satisfying Fuchs's relation the associated variety of nilpotent $ p$-curvature is a nonempty complete intersection of dimension, essentially, $ m - 2$. The subject has previously been studied by Katz, Honda, and Dwork.
