Model theory of fields and some of its applications
Elisabeth Bouscaren (CNRS - Univ.Paris XI)
Model Theory is a branch of Mathematical Logic which is relatively recent and still not very wwell-known, in spite of its strong links to algebra and geometry. We will first try to present the very basic notions (definable sets, compactness, transfer principles) through some classical examples of applications of the model theory of fields (in particular, the transfer theorems of Ax-Kochen-Ersov about
Henselian valued fields and their application to a conjecture of Artin in the 60's). We will then present some recents applications of model theory, focusing on the interactions with number theory and algebraic geometry.
