I show that there exists an element = i>0 ai X i 2 F p ((X )) which is not algebraic over Fp (X ) . b) Let = p and let F be the separable algebraic closure of Fp (X )( ) in Fp ((X )) . Show that F is dense in Fp ((X )) and Henselian. Let L = F ( ) . Show that L=F is of degree p , and that the index of ramification and the residue degree of L=F are equal to 1. Let F be a field with a discrete valuation v . Show that the following conditions are equivalent: (1) F is a Henselian discrete valuation field.

Then we get (;1)m a0 = NF ( )=F ( ) and if s = jL : F ( )j , then ((;1)m a0 )s = NL=F ( ) . 4), we get v (ai ) > 0 for 0 6 i 6 m ; 1 . However, (;1)m NF ( )=F (1 + ) = f (;1) = (;1)m + am;1 (;1)m;1 + + a0 and it suffices to show that if hence ; v NF ( )=F (1 + ) >0 and ; v NL=F (1 + ) >0 II. , w0 (1 + ) > 0 . Thus, we have shown that w0 is a valuation on L . Let n = jL : F j ; then w0 ( ) = nv ( ) for 2 F . Hence, the valuation (1=n)w0 is an extension of v to L (note that (1=n)w0 (L ) 6= Z in general).
