A Real Holomorphy Ring without the SchmÃ¼dgen Property
A preordering $T$ is constructed in the polynomial ring $A = \R
[t_1,t_2, \dots]$ (countably many variables) with the following two
properties: (1)~~For each $f \in A$ there exists an integer $N$
such that $N \le f(P) \le N$ holds for all $P \in \Sper_T(A)$.
(2)~~For all $f \in A$, if $N+f, Nf \in T$ for some integer $N$,
then $f \in \R$. This is in sharp contrast with the
Schm\"udgenW\"ormann result that for any preordering $T$ in a
finitely generated $\R$algebra $A$, if property~(1) holds, then
for any $f \in A$, $f > 0$ on $\Sper_T(A) \Rightarrow f \in T$.
Also, adjoining to $A$ the square roots of the generators of $T$
yields a larger ring $C$ with these same two properties but with
$\Sigma C^2$ (the set of sums of squares) as the preordering.

Une caractÃ©risation des corps satisfaisant le thÃ©orÃ¨me de l'axe principal
Resum\'e. On caract\'erise les corps $K$ satisfaisant le th\'eor\`eme

on retrouve \`a partir de l\`a, de fa\c{c}on \'el\'ementaire,

r\'ealise comme groupe de Galois absolu d'un tel corps $K$ est
engendr\'e par des involutions.
ABSTRACT. We characterize general fields $K$, satisfying the
Principal Axis Theorem, by means of properties of trace forms of
the finite extensions of $K$. From this and Waterhouse's
characterization of the same fields, we rediscover, in quite an
elementary way, a result of Becker according to which a
pro$2$group which occurs as the absolute Galois group of such
a field $K$, is generated by
