The speculation of algebraic functionality fields over finite fields has its origins in quantity thought. in spite of the fact that, after Goppa`s discovery of algebraic geometry codes round 1980, many functions of functionality fields have been present in diverse components of arithmetic and knowledge concept. This publication offers survey articles on a few of these new advancements. the themes specialise in fabric which has now not but been provided in different books or survey articles.

With the following properties: a) ρn ≤ Dn = deg Diﬀ(Fn /Fn−1 ), for all n ≥ 1. b) ρn ≥ [Fn : Fn−1 ] · ρn−1 , for all n ≥ 2. Then the genus of the tower is infinite. , its limit satisfies λ(F) = 0. Proof. Using again the transitivity of the different, one shows by induction that deg Diﬀ(Fn /F0 ) ≥ [Fn : F1 ] · n · ρ1 , for all n ≥ 1. Therefore from Hurwitz genus formula, we have that 2g(Fn ) − 2 ≥ [Fn : F0 ](2g(F0 ) − 2) + [Fn : F1 ] · n · ρ1 . Dividing this inequality by [Fn : F0 ] and letting n → ∞, we see that the genus of the tower satisfies γ(F) = limn→∞ g(Fn )/[Fn : F0 ] = ∞.

Next we determine the ramification locus V (W4 ) of the tower W4 . 15. We have V (W4 ) ⊆ {(x0 = α) | α ∈ F4 or α = ∞}. Proof. 10. Let F = F8 (x, y) be the basic function field of the tower W4 with y 2 + y = x + 1 + 1/x. 2) is R0 = {0, ∞}. Let β ∈ R := F4 ∪ {∞}, and let α ∈ F8 ∪ {∞} be a solution of the equation β 2 + β = α + 1 + α−1 . If β = ∞, then α = 0 or α = ∞. If β ∈ F4 , then β 2 + β ∈ F2 and α satisfies an equation of degree 2 over F2 , hence α ∈ F4 . In all cases we have proved that α ∈ R.

If the extensions E/F is Galois of degree p = char(Fq ), 32 Towers of Function Fields it is well-known that d(Q|P ) = s · (e(Q|P ) − 1) for some s ≥ 2 (see [48, p. 124]). The next result deals with the case when s = 2. 1. Let F/Fq be a function field and let E1 /F and E2 /F be distinct Galois extensions of F such that [E1 : F ] = [E2 : F ] = p = char(Fq ). Denote by E = E1 · E2 the composite field of E1 and E2 . Let Q be a place of E and denote by Q1 , Q2 and P its restrictions to the subfields E1 , E2 and F .
