 Field - Wikipedia
A field, in abstract algebra, is an algebraic system of elements in which the operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division (except division by zero) may be performed without leaving the system and the associative, commutative, and distributive rules hold, which are familiar from the arithmetic of ordinary numbers.
Fields are important objects of study in abstract algebra since they provide the proper generalization of number domains, such as the sets of rational numbers or real numbers.
For a given field F, the set F(X) of rational functions in the variable X with coefficients in F is a field; this is defined as the set of quotients of polynomials with coefficients in F.

 Algebraically Closed Fields
Algebraically closed fields (ACF's) have the property that they always contain all the roots of any polynomial defined over them.
It is not possible to construct explicitly the closure of a field, but the system works by automatically constructing larger and larger algebraic extensions of an original base field as needed during a computation, thus giving the illusion of computing in the algebraic closure of the base field.
Consequently, ACF's behave in the same way as as any other field implemented in Magma; all standard algorithms implemented for generic fields and which use factorization work without change (for example, the Jordan form of a matrix).

For an algebraic group G, defined over an algebraically closed field of characteristic zero, there is a natural partial order on the set of G-actions on algebraic varieties: X >= Y if there exists a dominant G-equivariant rational map (i.e., a compression) from X to Y. Alternatively, one can consider regular, rather than rational, compressions.
Abstract: Let G be an algebraic group and X be an irreducible algebraic variety with a generically free G-action, all defined over an algebraically closed field of characteristic zero.

Many mathematicians will be familiar with the idea of an algebraically closed field, a field in which every system of polynomial equations (and inequations) has all possible solutions.
The idea of a differentially closed field is similar - it is a field with a differentiation operator in which every system of (polynomial) differential equations and inequations has all possible solutions.
By "complete theory" I mean complete first-order theory, in the language of differential fields, or of fields together with a relation giving the solution set of the equation.

 Absolute Field
One may construct an absolute field isomorphic to the current subfield represented by an algebraically closed field.
The construction of the absolute field may be very expensive, as it involves factoring polynomials over successive subfields.
In fact, it is often the case that the degree of the absolute field is an extremely large integer, so that an absolute field is not practically representable, yet the system may allow one to compute effectively with the original non-absolute presentation.

 First-order Model Theory
For example the field of real numbers forms a structure R whose elements are the real numbers, with signature consisting of the individual constant 0 to name the number zero, a 1-ary function symbol - for minus, and two 2-ary function symbols + and.
The programme is broadly to classify structures according to (a) what groups or fields are interpretable in them (in the sense sketched in the entry on model theory) and (b) whether or not the structures have ‘modular geometries’; and then to use this classification to solve problems in model theory and geometry.
Alex Wilkie showed that the field of real numbers with a symbol for exponentiation is o-minimal and has a model-complete complete theory, and thereby gave a positive answer to Tarski's old problem of whether this structure allows a quantifier elimination (though his method was very far from the syntactic analysis that Tarski had in mind).
