The whole theory of constructibility depends on the analysis of various field extensions K of D. Now, given such a field extension, one of the first things one would like to do is somehow measure how big K is relative to D. Of course, “how big” is a loose term, and we need to make this question more precise. To do so, we need to invoke some ideas from the theory of vector spaces.
