Vanishing of Massey products and Brauer groups
Let $p$ be a prime number and $F$ a field containing a root of
unity of order $p$.
We relate recent results on vanishing of triple Massey products
in the mod$p$ Galois cohomology of $F$,
due to Hopkins, Wickelgren, MinÃ¡Ä, and TÃ¢n, to classical
results in the theory of central simple algebras.
For global fields, we prove a stronger form of the vanishing
property.

Characterizing Distinguished Pairs by Using Liftings of Irreducible Polynomials
Let $v$ be a henselian valuation of any rank of a field
$K$ and $\overline{v}$ be the unique extension of $v$ to a
fixed algebraic closure $\overline{K}$ of $K$. In 2005, it was studied properties
of those pairs $(\theta,\alpha)$ of elements of $\overline{K}$
with $[K(\theta): K]\gt [K(\alpha): K]$ where $\alpha$ is an element
of smallest degree over $K$ such that
$$
\overline{v}(\theta\alpha)=\sup\{\overline{v}(\theta\beta)
\ \beta\in \overline{K}, \ [K(\beta): K]\lt [K(\theta): K]\}.
$$
Such pairs are referred to as distinguished pairs.
We use the concept of liftings of irreducible polynomials to give a
different characterization of distinguished pairs.

Infinite Families of $A_4$Sextic Polynomials
In this article we develop a test to determine whether a sextic
polynomial that is irreducible over $\mathbb{Q}$ has Galois group isomorphic
to the alternating group $A_4$. This test does not involve the
computation of resolvents, and we use this test to construct several
infinite families of such polynomials.

On the Theorem of the Primitive Element with Applications to the Representation Theory of Associative and Lie Algebras
We describe of all finite
dimensional uniserial representations of a commutative associative
(resp. abelian Lie) algebra over a perfect (resp. sufficiently
large perfect) field. In the Lie case the size of the field
depends on the answer to following question, considered and solved
in this paper. Let $K/F$ be a finite separable field extension
and
let $x,y\in K$. When is $F[x,y]=F[\alpha x+\beta y]$ for some
nonzero elements $\alpha,\beta\in F$?

On Algebraically Maximal Valued Fields and Defectless Extensions
Let $v$ be a Henselian Krull valuation of a field $K$. In this paper,
the authors give some necessary and sufficient conditions for a
finite simple extension of $(K,v)$ to be defectless. Various
characterizations of algebraically maximal valued fields are also
given which lead to a new proof of a result proved by Yu. L. Ershov.

New Examples of NonArchimedean Banach Spaces and Applications
The study carried out in this paper about some new examples of
Banach spaces, consisting of certain valued fields extensions, is
a typical nonarchimedean feature. We determine whether these
extensions are of countable type, have $t$orthogonal bases, or are
reflexive.
As an application we construct, for a class of base fields, a norm
$\\cdot\$ on $c_0$, equivalent to the canonical supremum norm,
without nonzero vectors that are $\\cdot\$orthogonal and such
that there is a multiplication on $c_0$ making $(c_0,\\cdot\)$
into a valued field.

Cohomological Dimension and Schreier's Formula in Galois Cohomology
Let $p$ be a prime and $F$ a field containing a primitive $p$th
root of unity. Then for $n\in \N$, the cohomological dimension
of the maximal pro$p$quotient $G$ of the absolute Galois group
of $F$ is at most $n$ if and only if the corestriction maps
$H^n(H,\Fp) \to H^n(G,\Fp)$ are surjective for all open
subgroups $H$ of index $p$. Using this result, we generalize
Schreier's formula for $\dim_{\Fp} H^1(H,\Fp)$ to $\dim_{\Fp}
H^n(H,\Fp)$.

On CauchyLiouvilleMirimanoff Polynomials
Let $p$ be a prime greater than or equal to 17 and
congruent to
2 modulo 3. We use results of Beukers and Helou on
CauchyLiouvilleMirimanoff
polynomials to show that
the intersection of the Fermat curve of degree $p$ with the
line $X+Y=Z$ in the projective plane
contains no algebraic points of degree
$d$ with $3 \leq d \leq 11$.
We prove a result on
the roots of these polynomials and show that, experimentally,
they seem to satisfy
the conditions of a mild extension of
an irreducibility theorem of P\'{o}lya and Szeg\"{o}.
These conditions are \emph{conjecturally}
also necessary for irreducibility.

GoingDown Results for $C_{i}$Fields
We search for theorems that, given a $C_i$field $K$ and a subfield $k$ of $K$, allow
us to conclude that $k$ is a $C_j$field for some $j$. We give appropriate theorems in
the case $K=k(t)$ and $K = k\llp t\rrp$. We then consider the more difficult case where $K/k$
is an algebraic extension. Here we are able to prove some results, and make conjectures. We
also point out the connection between these questions and Lang's conjecture on nonreal function
fields over a real closed field.

AlgÃ¨bres simples centrales de degrÃ© 5 et $E_8$
As a consequence of a theorem of RostSpringer, we establish that the
cyclicity problem for central simple algebra of degree~5 on fields
containg a fifth root of unity is equivalent to the study of
anisotropic elements of order 5 in the split group of type~$E_8$.

Images of mod $p$ Galois Representations Associated to Elliptic Curves
We give an explicit recipe for the determination of the images

curves. We present a table listing the image for all the elliptic
curves defined over $\QQ$ without complex multiplication with
conductor less than 200 and for each prime number~$p$.

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.

Root closure in Integral Domains, III
{If A is a subring of a commutative ring B and if n
is a positive integer, a number of sufficient conditions are given for
``A[[X]]is nroot closed in B[[X]]'' to be equivalent to ``A is nroot
closed in B.'' In addition, it is shown that if S is a multiplicative
submonoid of the positive integers ${\bbd P}$ which is generated by
primes, then there exists a onedimensional quasilocal integral domain
A (resp., a von Neumann regular ring A) such that $S = \{ n \in {\bbd P}\mid
A$ is $n$root closed$\}$ (resp., $S = \{n \in {\bbd P}\mid A[[X]]$
is $n$rootclosed$\}$).
