Is $k(\!(x,y)\!)$ a topological field?

More generally, let $(R,m)$ be a Noetherian local domain with fraction field $K$. The $m$-adic topology turns $R$ into a topological ring. When $R$ is a discrete valuation ring, this topology extends ...

m-systems and n-systems in topological rings

Note that throughout rings have a multiplicative identity and are not necessarily commutative Definition: Let $R$ be a ring and let $M\subseteq R$. Then, $M$ is an m-system iff for every $x,y\in ...

Associativity equation for topological rings and logarithms

Let $R$ be a topological ring of characteristic zero. Assume that $R$ is commutative. Let $G :R \times R \to R$ be a continuous function satisfying $G(G(x,y),z)=G(x,G(y,z))$ and $G(0,x)=x$, for all $x,...

What are some general results describing the Krull dimension of the completion of a non-Noetherian ring with a "nice" topology? An example of the sort of "nice" topological ring I'm looking for is a ...

S-unital compact rings are profinite

It is well-known that compact Hausdorff topological unital rings are profinite. The proof generalises to (left or right) s-unital rings (i.e. rings such that for all $r\in R$ we have $r\in Rr$ or for ...

Properties of differentiable functions on non-locally-bounded fields

I was reading some results on the structure of non-locally-bounded topological fields, and I was wondering what is known about differentiable functions on them. In particular, on the complex numbers ...

Completed Tensorproduct

I am trying to understand the completed tensorproduct. This can be defined as follows: Given a topological ring $R$ and two linearly topologized rings $A$ and $B$ with fundamental systems of open ...
