The text covers the classical theory of valuated fields, results about representations of classical groups over a locally compact valuated field, and Dwork's proof of the rationality of the zeta function of an algebraic variety over a finite field.

Presents the main results about modular and nonmodular varieties, equational bases and the amalgamation property in a uniform way. The text includes preliminaries that make the material accessible to anyone with basic knowledge of universal algebra.
