Higher rank case of Dwork's conjecture, by Daqing Wan

This is the final version of preprint 142 (An embedding approach to Dwork's conjecture). It reduces the higher rank case of the conjecture over a general base variety to the rank one case over the affine space. The general rank one case is completed in preprint 235 "Rank one case of Dwork's conjecture". Both papers will appear in JAMS.
