Existential theories of equicharacteristic henselian valued fields

We discuss some recent work (joint with Arno Fehm) about a `weak transfer principle' for equicharacteristic henselian valued fields. More precisely, we transfer the truth of existential sentences (in a suitable language for valued fields) between these fields, subject to some constraints on the residue fields.
