Partial results on dp-finite fields

Submission date: 27 March 2019


We prove that NIP valued fields of positive characteristic are henselian. Furthermore, we partially generalize the known results on dp-minimal fields to dp-finite fields. We prove a dichotomy: if K is a sufficiently saturated dp-finite expansion of a field, then either K has finite Morley rank or K has a non-trivial Aut(K/A)-invariant valuation ring for a small set A. In the positive characteristic case, we can even demand that the valuation ring is henselian. Using this, we classify the positive characteristic dp-finite pure fields.
