Remarks around the non-existence of difference-closure

Submission date: 12 April 2020


This paper shows that in general, difference fields do not have a difference closure. However, we introduce a stronger notion of closure (kappa-closure), and show that every algebraically closed difference field K of characteristic 0, with fixed field satisfying a certain natural condition, has a closure, and this closure is unique up to isomorphism over K.
