Imaginaries in valued fields of positive characteristic

I will discuss the basic properties of the theory SCVF of separably closed valued fields, and the closely related theory SCVH of separably closed valued fields equipped with Hasse derivations. The main new result is elimination of imaginaries (in a suitable language). This is joint work with Martin Hils and Silvain Rideau.

Moshe Kamensky is a postdoc in model theory at the Mathematics department of The Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Israel, working with Ehud Hrushovski.
