In particular, interpolation by integer-valued polynomials is possible for arbitrary arguments and values in a Dedekind ring all of whose residue fields are finite, such as the ring of algebraic integers in a number field.

If R is an infinite subring of a discrete valuation ring with finite residue field and a_1,..,a_n in R, we also determine the minimal d such that for all b_1,..,b_n in R_v there exists f in K[x] of degree at most d with f(a_i)=b_i and f(R) contained in R.
