Abstract: A group valuation is constructed on the norm factor group of a quadratic extension of a linearly compact field, and the norm factor group is explicitly computed as a valued group. Generalizations and applications of this structure theory are made to cyclic extensions of prime degree, to square (and $ p$th power) factor groups, to generalized quaternion algebras, and to quadratic extensions of arbitrary fields.
