Q(x1, . . , xm ) If we substitute for β1 , . . , βm in R their representations as polynomials in α, βi = gi (α) ∈ κ[α], i = 1, 2, . . , m, then Q(β1 , . . , βm ) becomes a polynomial in α, which does not vanish for the value α. Consequently, it does not vanish for any of the conjugates α(1) , . . , α(n) of α with respect to κ. However, P (β1 , . . , βm ) = P (g1 (α), . . , gm (α)) = 0. 40 1 Field extensions Hence this polynomial in α must vanish for all conjugates α(1) , . . , (i) (i) = P g1 α(i) , .

Then let all terms of f(x) and g(x) which are divisible by p be omitted and two nonvanishing polynomials f¯(x), g¯(x) are obtained, all of whose coefﬁcients are not divisible by p, while at the same time f(x) ≡ f¯(x) (mod p), g(x) ≡ g¯(x) (mod p), it follows that f¯(x)¯ g(x) ≡ 0 (mod p). The highest-degree term in f¯(x)¯ g(x) must be ≡ 0 (mod p) on the one hand, on the other hand however it is equal to the product of the highest terms of f¯(x) and g¯(x). Since p is a prime and all terms of f¯(x) and g¯(x) are not divisible by p, such product of such terms is also not divisible by p.

11) For each maximal ideal p, the function ordp(a) is a discrete valuation on κ, where we think ordp(0) = +∞. Let S be the set of equivalence classes deﬁned by these valuations. 11) almost all the ordp(a) vanish. To prove 3 , take distinct maximal ideals p, q. Then p + q = A, hence (p + q)2N = A for any N > 0, and so A = (p + q)2N ⊆ p2N + p2N −1 q + · · · + q2N ⊆ pN + qN . It follows that we can write 1 = a + b, where a ∈ pN , b ∈ qN and a, b ∈ A. Thus a satisﬁes ordp(a) ≥ N, ordq(1 − a) ≥ N, a ∈ A, and so 3 holds.
