Abstract: Let R be a complete local domain of mixed characteristic. This paper gives a complete answer to the question: ``If F is a one-dimensional formal group over R of finite height, when is there a canonical morphism $ F \to {F'}$ that lifts Frobenius?'' For given height h, a universal family of formal groups F with such a morphism is constructed, and the shape of $ {F'}$ is described for small values of h.
