Parent Program:
Location: MSRI: Online/Virtual
Speaker(s) Silvain Rideau-Kikuchi (Institut de Mathematiques de Jussieu)
Description

Valuation theory plays a major part in the interaction between number theory and logic. In this seminar, a variety of topics from valuation theory, and in particular connections to model theory, will be discussed. There will be a strong emphasis on results involving the definability of valuations.

Abstract: Joint work with Samaria Montenegro

The striking resemblance between the behaviour of pseudo-algebraically closed, pseudo real closed and pseudo p-adically fields has lead to numerous attempts at describing their properties in a unified manner. In this talk I will present another of these attempts: the class of pseudo-T-closed fields, where T is an enriched theory of fields. These fields verify a « local-global » principle with respect to models of T for the existence of points on varieties. Although it very much resembles previous such attempts, our approach is more model theoretic in flavour, both in its presentation and in the results we aim for.

The two main results I would like to present are, on the one hand an approximation result — or equilvalently the fact that existential closeness in certain topological enrichments come for free from existential closeness as a field — and, on the other hand, a (model theoretic) classification result for bounded pseudo-T-closed fields, in the guise of the computation of their burden. One of the striking consequence of these two results is that a bounded PAC field with n independent valuations has burden n and, in particular, is NTP2.
