|Title:||First-order undecidability in function fields of positive characteristic|
|Seminar:||Algebra and Number Theory Seminar|
|Speaker:||Kirsten Eisentraeger, The Pennsylvania State University|
|We prove that the first-order theory of any function field of odd
characteristic is undecidable (joint work with A. Shlapentokh).
When K is the function field of a variety of dimension at least 2 over
an algebraically closed field of odd characteristic, we can
also prove that Hilbert's Tenth Problem for K is undecidable.|
