### Newton’s method over global height fields

For any field $K$ equipped with a set of pairwise inequivalent absolute values satisfying a product formula, we completely describe the conditions under which Newton’s method applied to a squarefree polynomial $f\in K\left[x\right]$ will succeed in finding some root of $f$ in the $v$-adic topology for infinitely many places $v$ of $K$. Furthermore, we show that if $K$ is a finite extension of the rationals or of the rational function field over a finite field, then the Newton approximation sequence fails to converge $v$-adically...
