When are roots of power series algebraic?
@David: I'm not sure I understand. In the example quoted in my question (the middle paragraph), a priori $f$ does not have coefficients in the ring of integers of $K$. The only thing known about $f$ is that it is a formal power series with coefficients in $K$ which converges in the open unit disc of $\mathbb{C}_p$ and has finitely many zeros. Where (and how) is the Weierstrass Preparation Theorem being invoked here?. |

@Qiaochu: Yes, Jacques has the right idea. @KConrad: Yes, the Weierstrass Preparation Theorem is a great example of this phenomenon. Thank you. |

Changing field of study post-PhD
@quid: I was thinking the exact same thing when I wrote this answer! And no disrespect taken: I am certainly not one of those people! It is definitely easier for some people to transition between fields, but I suppose the existence of any such people at all should be encouraging to people like Adam. |
