On Henselian Rigid Geometry

Fumiharu Kato

Full-text: Open access


We overview some of the foundations of the so-called henselian rigid geometry, and show that henselian rigid geometry has many aspects, useful in applications, that one cannot expect in the usual rigid geometry. This is done by announcing a few characteristic results, one of which is an analogue of Zariski Main Theorem.
