# separably algebraically closed field

*separably algebraically closed* if every separable element of the algebraic closure of $K$ belongs to $K$.

In the case when $K$ has characteristic 0, it is separably algebraically closed if and only if it is algebraically closed.

If $K$ has positive characteristic $p$, $K$ is separably algebraically closed if and only if its algebraic closure is a purely inseparable extension of $K$.
