Counting problems in algebraic geometry over an algebraically closed field have been studied for centuries. More recently, it was discovered that there are interesting counting problems over the real numbers. Topology took the place of algebraic closedness. However, the question remained whether there are interesting counting problems over more general fields where the tools of classical topology are not available. I will describe some results in this direction.
