Abstract: Our main result, Theorem (0.1), classifies multiple fibers on rational elliptic surfaces over algebraically closed fields of arbitrary characteristic. One result of this is the existence in positive characteristics of tame multiple fibers of additive type for several of the Kodaira fiber-types for which no examples were previously known.
