Considering the fact that its delivery, version thought has been constructing a few tools and ideas that experience their intrinsic relevance, but in addition supply fruitful and amazing functions in a variety of fields of arithmetic. it's a energetic and fertile study sector which merits the eye of the mathematical global. This quantity: -is simply obtainable to youth and mathematicians strange with good judgment; -gives a terse historic photograph of version idea; -introduces the most recent advancements within the region; -provides 'hands-on' proofs of removal of quantifiers, removing of imaginaries and different correct concerns. A advisor to Classical and sleek version conception is for trainees version theorists, mathematicians operating in Algebra and Geometry and children with a uncomplicated wisdom of common sense.

Now let p be a pri me, or p = o. Also the class of (algebraically closed) fields of characteristic p is elementary; for, it suffices to add to the previous sentences the one saying that the sum of p t imes 1 is 0 when p is a prime, or, when p = 0, the negations of all t hese sentences. In conclusion, for every p prime or equal to 0, we can introduce the theory ACFp of algebraically closed fi elds of charact eristic p. Among the algebraically closed fields in characteris tic 0 recall the complex field C , as well as the (countable) field C o of complex algebraic numbers; th eir th eories contain ACF o, and one may wonder if they eq ual ACF o.

In fact t he definition itself of field can be writ ten as a series of first order sentences (in most cases , of universal first order sentences) in L . For instance says that a ny non zero element has an inver se. Also t he class of algebraically closed fields is elementary, although the corres ponding check is a lit tle subt ler. In fact what we have to say now is that , for every natural n , any (monic) polynomial of degree n + 1 has at least one root. So the point is how to quantify over polynomials of deg ree n + 1.
