Splitting patterns and trace forms
The splitting pattern of a quadratic form $q$ over a field $k$ consists of all distinct Witt indices that occur for $q$ over extension fields of $k$. In small dimensions, the complete list of splitting patterns of quadratic forms is known. We show that {\it all\/} splitting patterns of quadratic forms of dimension at most nine can be realized by trace forms.

Keywords:Quadratic forms, Witt indices, generic splitting.
