In science:

These measures take their origin in harmonic analysis on the infinite symmetric group ([KOV], [Ol]).
Determinantal random point fields
Roughly speaking, we define F a (L) as the set of connected components of HomOK (OL , O/πaO) for some topology.
Ramification of local fields with imperfect residue fields
The natural map X a Z (Ω) → HomOK (OL , O/πaO) is surjective, and its fibers are discs.
Ramification of local fields with imperfect residue fields
For a finite separable extension L of K , we denote by OL , mL , L, πL and vL , respectively, the valuation ring, its maximal ideal, the residue field, a uniformizing element, and the normalized valuation of L.
Ramification of local fields with imperfect residue fields
Let X = Spec(L) be an ob ject in C and OL be the normalization of OK in L.
Ramification of local fields with imperfect residue fields
Let L be a finite separable extension of K . A logarithmic system of generators of OL over OK is a triple (Z, I , P ) where Z = (zi )i∈I is a finite system of generators of OL as an OK –algebra and P is a subset of I such that the set {zi ; i ∈ P } contains a uniformizer of OL and does not contain the zero element.
Ramification of local fields with imperfect residue fields
If g ∈ IZ then v(g (x)) ≥ a, and if the image of g in OL is invertible then g (x) is a unit in O.
Ramification of local fields with imperfect residue fields
Let ι ∈ P be such that zι is a uniformizer of OL , and put g = gι and hi = hι,i for i ∈ P .
Ramification of local fields with imperfect residue fields
Let L′ be a finite separable extension of L, and (Z ′ = (zi )i∈I ′ , I ′ , P ′ ) be a logarithmic system of generators of OL′ over OK .
Ramification of local fields with imperfect residue fields
By (iii) above, the collection (Y a Z,P ), where (Z, I , P ) runs over the logarithmic systems of generators of OL over OK , forms a pro jective system.
Ramification of local fields with imperfect residue fields
The valuation ring OL has a canonical log-structure (ML , αL ) given by the multiplicative monoid ML = OL − {0} and the natural morphism of monoids αL : OL − {0} → OL .
Ramification of local fields with imperfect residue fields
There is a canonical morphism of log-structures (OK , MK ) → (OL , ML ).
Ramification of local fields with imperfect residue fields
Such a morphism is a pair (f , g ) where f : OL → O/πaO is a morphism of OK –algebras and g : ML → M a is a morphism of monoids over MK , such that f ◦ αL = αa ◦ g .
Ramification of local fields with imperfect residue fields
It is clear that (f , g ) ∈ Homlog (OL , O/πaO).
Ramification of local fields with imperfect residue fields
Let (Z, I , P ) be a logarithmic system of generators of OL /OK .
