We prove that every place P of an algebraic function field F |K of arbitrary characteristic admits local uniformization, provided that the sum of the rational rank of its value group and the transcendence degree of its residue field FP over K is equal to the transcendence degree of F |K, and the extension FP |K is separable. We generalize this result to the case where P dominates a regular local Nagata ring R ⊆ K of Krull dimension dimR ≤ 2, assuming that the valued field (K, vP ) is defectless… CONTINUE READING
