Let L/K be a Galois extension, and w be a valuation of a L, lying above a valuation v of K. Notice that I do not suppose that w is discrete.

Given α > 0 in the finite image of w, each of the following can easily been shown to be a subgroup of the inertia group of w in L :

* { σ ∈ Gal(L/K) : w(σ x - x) ≥ α },

* {σ ∈ Gal(L/K) : w(σ x - x) > α },

* { σ ∈ Gal(L/K) : w(σ x - x) ≥ w(x) + α },

* { σ ∈ Gal(L/K) : w(σ x - x) > w(x) + α}.

What is the terminology for these subgroups ? (I guess some variant of "ramification group of order α) ?

Can you indicate me a source ?

Thx.
