This chapter introduces the reader to basic field theory by focusing on valued fields. It first considers valuations on fields before discussing the basic properties of valued fields, with emphasis on extensions. It then describes pseudoconvergence in valued fields, along with henselian valued fields. It also shows how to decompose a valuation on a field into simpler ones, leading to an analysis of various special types of pseudocauchy sequences. Because the valuation of is compatible with its natural ordering, some basic facts about fields with compatible ordering and valuation are presented. The chapter concludes by reviewing some basic model theory of valued fields as well as the Newton diagram and Newton tree of a polynomial over a valued field.

Keywords:   valued field, valuation, extension, pseudoconvergence, henselian valued field, pseudocauchy sequence, Newton diagram, Newton tree
