A bound to kill the ramification over function fields

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Let k be a field of characteristic zero, let X be a geometrically integral k-variety of dimension n and let K be its field of functions. We prove that, given an element α∈Hm(K,μr⊗m), there exist n2 functions {fi},i=1,...,n2 such that α becomes unramified in L=K(f11/r,...,fn21/r).
