For greater than 30 years, the writer has studied the model-theoretic features of the speculation of valued fields and multi-valued fields. a few of the key effects integrated during this publication have been bought through the writer when getting ready the manuscript. therefore the original evaluation of the speculation, as constructed within the ebook, has been formerly unavailable.
The e-book bargains with the speculation of valued fields and mutli-valued fields. the idea of Prüfer jewelry is mentioned from the `geometric' standpoint. the writer indicates that by means of introducing the Zariski topology on households of valuation earrings, it's attainable to tell apart vital subfamilies of Prüfer earrings that correspond to Boolean and close to Boolean households of valuation earrings. additionally, algebraic and model-theoretic houses of multi-valued fields with close to Boolean households of valuation earrings gratifying the local-global precept are studied. it will be important that this precept is common, i.e., it may be expressed within the language of predicate calculus. crucial effects got within the ebook contain a criterion for the elementarity of an embedding of a multi-valued box and a criterion for the uncomplicated equivalence for multi-valued fields from the category outlined by means of the extra ordinary ordinary stipulations (absolute unramification, maximality and virtually continuity of neighborhood easy properties). The e-book concludes with a short bankruptcy discussing the bibliographic references to be had at the fabric offered, and a brief historical past of the foremost advancements in the field.
