Abstract:

We begin this paper by constructing different algebraically closed fields containing an algebraic closure of the field of power series in several variables over a characteristic zero field. Each of these fields depends on the choice of an Abhyankar valuation and is constructed via a generalization of the Newton-Puiseux method for this valuation.

Then we study the Galois group of a polynomial with power series coefficients. In particular by examining more carefully the case of monomial valuations we are able to give several results concerning the Galois group of a polynomial whose discriminant is a weighted homogeneous polynomial times a unit. One of our main results is a generalization of Abhyankar-Jung Theorem for such polynomials, classical Abhyankar-Jung Theorem being devoted to polynomials whose discriminant is a monomial times a unit.
