Title:  Purely inseparable Galois theory

Abstract:   Given a field $K$ of characteristic $p$, a classical result of Jacobson provides a Galois correspondence between finite purely inseparable subfields of exponent one (those with $K^p\subset L\subset K$), and sub-restricted Lie algebras of $\mathrm{Der}(K)$. I will discuss joint work with Lukas Brantner in which we extend this Galois correspondence to subfields of arbitrary exponent using methods from derived algebraic geometry.
