adic space




Adic spaces are the basic objects in Huber’s approach to non-archimedean analytic geometry. They are built by gluing valuation spectra? of a certain class of topological rings. Unlike Berkovich analytic spectra the points of adic spaces correspond to valuations of arbitrary rank, not only rank one. If a Berkovich space is corresponding to a separated rigid analytic space then it can be obtained as the largest Hausdorff quotient of the corresponding adic space.
