1. ## Field Theory

It is a well known that every polynomial over a field of characteristic zero is separable. We also know that every polynomial over a finite field is separable.

Anyway, is it possible to have infinite field with characteristic not 0?

of course it's possible! for example $\mathbb{F}_p(x),$ the field of fractions of $\mathbb{F}_p[x].$

Construct $\bar {\mathbb{F}_p}$ to be the algebraic closure for $\mathbb{F}_p$.
