Abstract: We want to determine all the extensions of a valuation of a field to a cyclic extension of , i.e. is the field of rational functions of or is the finite separable extension generated by a root of an irreducible polynomial . In two articles from 1936, Saunders MacLane has introduced the notions of *key polynomial* and of *augmented valuation* for a given valuation of , and has shown how we can recover any extension to of a discrete rank one valuation of by a countable sequence of augmented valuations , with . The valuation is defined by induction from the valuation , from a key polynomial and from the value .

In this article we study some properties of the augmented valuations and we generalize the results of MacLane to the case of any valuation of . For this we need to introduce *simple admissible families* of augmented valuations , where is not necessarily a countable set, and to define a *limit key polynomial* and *limit augmented valuation* for such families. Then, any extension to of a valuation on is again a limit of a family of augmented valuations.

We also get a ``factorization'' theorem which gives a description of the values for any polynomial in .
