This book is the second of two proceedings volumes stemming from the International Conference and Workshop on Valuation Theory held at the University of Saskatchewan (Saskatoon, SK, Canada). It contains the most recent applications of valuation theory to a broad range of mathematical ideas. Valuation theory arose in the early part of the twentieth century in connection with number theory and continues to have many important applications to algebra, geometry, and analysis.The research and survey papers in this volume cover a variety of topics, including Galois theory, the Grunwald-Wang Theorem, algebraic geometry, resolution of singularities, curves over Prufer domains, model theory of valued fields and the Frobenius, Hardy fields, Hensel's Lemma, fixed point theorems, and computations in valued fields. It is suitable for graduate students and research mathematicians interested in algebra, algebraic geometry, number theory, and mathematical logic. Also available from the AMS is ""Valuation Theory and Its Applications"", Volume I.
