A minimalistic p-adic Artin-Schreier (Joint Number Theroy/Logic Seminar)

29 October 2015

In contrast to the Artin-Schreier Theorem, its $p$-adic analog(s) involve infinite Galois theory, e.g., the absolute Galois group of $p$-adic fields.  We plan to give a characterization of $p$-adic $p$-Henselian valuations in an essentially finite way. This relates to the $Z/p$ metabelian form of the birational $p$-adic Grothendieck section conjecture.
