#### Abstract

In this paper, we construct a Dieudonné theory for $\pi$-divisible $\mathcal{O}$-modules over a perfect field of characteristic $p$. Applying this theory, we prove the existence of slope filtration of $\pi$-divisible $\mathcal{O}$-modules over an integral normal Noetherian base. We also study minimal $\pi$-divisible $\mathcal{O}$-modules over an algebraically closed field of characteristic $p$ and prove that their isomorphism classes are determined by their $\pi$-torsion parts by introducing Oort’s filtration. Moreover, after a detailed study of deformations of $\pi$-divisible $\mathcal{O}$-modules via displays, we prove the generalized Traverso’s isogeny conjecture.
