This file contains results related to classifying algebraically closed fields.

## Main statements #

• is_alg_closed.equiv_of_transcendence_basis Two fields with the same characteristic and the same cardinality of transcendence basis are isomorphic.
• is_alg_closed.ring_equiv_of_cardinal_eq_of_char_eq Two uncountable algebraically closed fields are isomorphic if they have the same characteristic and the same cardinality.

setting R to be zmod (ring_char R) this result shows that if two algebraically closed fields have equipotent transcendence bases and the same characteristic then they are isomorphic.

If K is an uncountable algebraically closed field, then its cardinality is the same as that of a transcendence basis.

Two uncountable algebraically closed fields of characteristic zero are isomorphic if they have the same cardinality.
