Are rigid-analytic spaces obsolete, since adic spaces exist?

My opinion (knowing that this is somehow a matter of taste) is that the rigid-analytic viewpoint is more or less obsolete, and that one should better use Berkovich, Huber or Raynaud instead (each of ...

Are rigid-analytic spaces obsolete, since adic spaces exist?

There are two questions here: which version of the theory is easiest to get off the ground axiomatically, and which version is more convenient to work with in applications? For the first question, it'...

Berkovich space including both archimedean and non-archimedean worlds

The definition of analytic space over $\mathbf{Z}$ was given by Berkovich in his foundational book "Spectral theory and analytic geometry over non-Archimedean fields" (see the beginning of section 1.4 ...

Why does $\mathbb C_p$ not contain the periods?

Yes, such fields exist. Let $T$ be the first-order theory in the language of fields with an extra constant $c$, axiomatized by the axioms of fields, every element or its negative is a sum of 4 ...

Is there an exponential map on (Hahn) ordered fields?

There is no such exponential map. This was demonstrated in: F.-V. Kuhlmann, S. Kuhlmann, S. Shelah, Exponentiation in power series fields, Proc. Amer. Math. Soc. 125 (1997) 3177–3183.

How does an analytic space correspond to a $p$-adic Banach space

Non-trivial extension of representations have same central character

You probably should assume all representations are smooth. You hope to show if $\pi_1$ and $\pi_2$ have two different central characters $\phi_1$ and $\phi_2$ then any extension $0\to \pi_1\to \pi\to \...

Is $\mathbb{A}_k^n(k)$ dense in the Berkovich analytification of $\mathbb{A}_k^n$?

If $k$ is not algebraically closed, then $\mathbb A^n_k(k)$ is not doing to be dense with $\mathbb A_k^n$. I'll show this for $n=1$ for simplicity. Take any point $P$ in $\mathbb A^1_k$ with a residue ...
